DeskCycle 2 Under Desk Exercise Bike
DeskCycle 2 Under Desk Exercise Bike is the same exercise bike with a great build quality as the previous model DeskCycle. But with this new one, you can actually lower your pedal height to 9 inches, which is an inch lower than the original DeskCycle. And you can still adjust it to ten inches if you need to.
The main advantage is your knees will be less likely to his under the desk as you’ll have more space in between. You will not need to dedicate extra time to the gym when you get home from work as you can exercise all day long when you’re sitting at your desk. You can also use it at home when you’re sitting in a comfy chair and watching TV, playing games, checking out social media on your phone or if you work from home.
It will help increase the blood flow in your body, enhance your stamina, strengthen legs, increase your energy levels and focus which will be useful especially at work. This can actually help you improve your sleep quality and mood by reducing the level of anxiety and stress. The improvement in concentration and focus is mainly because of the better flow of oxygen into the brain. This increase in focus by exercising at work will increase your productivity greatly, as you’ll also be less concerned about the not so important things.
You can use the DeskCyle any time you’re in a seated position and your legs are free. It will be great as a tool for a workout and physical therapy. You won’t be disturbing people in your house or your colleagues at the office as it pedals quietly and smoothly with the magnetic resistance and a 40 lb. precision flywheel. You won’t be cycling consciously and can concentrate elsewhere on whatever you’re busy with. You can choose from 8 levels of calibrated resistance with about twice the challenge from easy to difficult, more than what most can handle.
The adjustable 9-inch pedal heights the lowest height you can find on the market. If you’re worried about sweating in the office, pedaling it at 1 rpm speed at the first resistance level will certainly make you burn more calories than sitting or standing at your desk. By also keeping the resistance lower than say 3 you won’t be distracted from your task at work.
The DeskCycle is suitable for use at home, work, nursing homes or schools. A small con pointed out is the pedals can warm up a little if you intend to use them barefooted. It is very easy to set up in just five to ten minutes and you’ll be burning roughly between 100-150 calories per hour depending on your weight. 9-inch high pedals will be good for most people but if you’re a tall adult you can adjust the height of your desk. For some, it may be hard to adapt to their office environment, which is not a negative related to the build quality or functionality of this product. The customer support is great if you need assistance with anything or get a faulty unit, they’ll ship you a new one promptly.
