Is working from home your new normal? There are plenty of perks. You can wear your PJs during meetings, you have your full kitchen right there, and your commute is next to nothing. But there's one major downside: You've been moving less. While you could try to squeeze a little more into your regular exercise routine to make up for it, it can be hard to find the time. That's where the DeskCycle comes in. This handy machine is a pint-sized version of an exercise bike — you can take it to the office or a friend's house! And, right now, you can grab the DeskCycle for just $144 (was $189) at Amazon.
The bike has a magnetic resistance mechanism for a quiet, smooth ride, so it won't interrupt you while you work. It also has eight calibrated resistance settings, allowing you to go from an easy cruise to more challenging settings.
You can even monitor your speed, time, distance, and calories burned with the DeskCycle!
The DeskCycle has a ton of fans, including many who swear it helped them lose weight. "Dear god the weight loss!" says a five-star reviewer who dropped 30 pounds in one month. "I have convinced multiple coworkers to buy these and now our corporate gym is selling them on campus," they said. "This is absolutely SILENT and it will literally be a deal breaker on accepting any future jobs if I can’t have this at my desk. I can’t believe the difference in how I feel."
Another called the DeskCycle "brilliant," writing, "it could make real differences in the quality of folks' lives." One happy biker even called the DeskCycle "the best thing since sliced bread," pointing out that it's quiet, only takes five minutes of setup time, and is effective. "I can do a slow, steady ride—20mph at resistance 2 or 3—or I can do a high intensity (HIIT) workout—30mph at resistance 3 or 4."
If you want to move more, but can't sacrifice time at your desk, this is a deal you don't want to miss.
