Still working from home or got someone on your list who is? There are plenty of perks. You can wear your PJs during meetings, you have your full kitchen right there and your commute is basically nonexistent. 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 2 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!
Just a heads up: You can get a DeskCycle 2 in two days with Amazon Prime. Not a member? Sign up here for all the entertainment and shopping benefits Amazon offers. Member now? Get this mini bike in a jiffy, so you can put it to work later this week.
This portable bike is so, so cool. For starters, it's compact. Just slip it under your desk, and you can start pedaling immediately. It's low profile enough to work under desks as low as 27 inches!
The bike has a magnetic resistance mechanism for a quiet, smooth ride, so the noise won't distract 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 2 thanks to a large five-function LCD display.
The DeskCycle has a ton of fans, including many who swear it helped them lose weight. "I've been using this every day since I bought it, and this deserves 10 stars," a happy customer said. "My legs have never felt so good after sitting at my desk all day! It's so quiet, I never hear it. The machine doesn't slide or move (it's on hardwood) and the intensity levels are, well intense! I am incredibly impressed with this machine — to be honest, I wasn't sure what to expect...I am looking forward to getting some seriously buff legs sitting on my rear all day!"
A website developer who says they live a "very sedentary lifestyle" also gives it five stars. "I decided to buy this little machine about five weeks ago. And I am not disappointed. It is VERY quiet," they wrote. "Not a single annoying squeak. And best of all, I went from 160 pounds to 153 pounds...in just five weeks. My diet has not changed much (outside of limiting my take out and increasing my protein levels)." If you want to move more, but can't sacrifice time at your desk, this is a deal you don't want to miss.
