#9 Versadesk Power Lift
Yes, standing-while-working has become a way of life for many, ever since the Mayo Clinic declared that “sitting is the new smoking” and the popularity of the VersaDesk “Power Lift” is a prime example. However, the same company has now added a new element to such fitness: perfect for integrating fitness into your work place or any place you sit for long periods of time. Burn calories while you work, feel more healthy and alert.
The Seated Desk Cycle’s slim and foldable design offers you the ability to quickly setup at your desk and effortlessly put aside when you want to sit or stand. While in use you are able to pedal quietly without disturbing others due to the quiet operation of this desk bike. You can also adjust the tension to increase and decrease the intensity of your workout depending on your need.
