Sit. Stand. Bike. Repeat! – Improving my health with the FlexiSpot Deskcise Pro™ V9 All-In-One Desk Bike

Being an author and full-time writer has always been my dream job.  One of the biggest down-sides to my chosen career path, though is the extensive time I spend sitting to write.  Thanks to my partnership with FlexiSpot I’m changing things up with the FlexiSpot Deskcise Pro V9 All-In-One Desk Bike, which allows me to bike or stand while writing – a terrific solution for helping me to improve my health while stilling enjoying the job I love!

We all know that sitting for prolonged periods of time can have an adverse affect on our overall health.  In the past, I used to set a timer to prompt me to get up every 30 minutes and move around.  While this was a decent solution to avoiding ill effects from sitting too long, it didn’t do much to avoid sitting in the first place.

The Deskcise Pro™ V9 All-In-One Desk Bike is an amazing solution that allows me to sit while I’m writing but to also keep moving and to elevate my heart rate with aerobic activity.

When I’m done biking, I can easily adjust the unit to stand while I’m writing, to help improving my circulation and keep me on my feet moving (I also like to dance around now a bit while I’m writing which is super fun!) If I get tired, I can simply sit down – it’s incredibly easy to transition from sitting to biking to standing and back.

With a whisper quite pedal system and simply adjustment levers for seat and desk height, I never miss a beat or have any unwanted background noise to disturb me. The wide desk surface easily holds my laptop, tablet, keyboard and mouse, and even books if I’m in the mood to do a little reading.

My favorite way to use the Deskcise Pro™ V9 All-In-One Desk Bike is to back it up to my desk. This way I can turn my monitor and use my wireless keyboard and mouse whenever I wish and then flip back to my desk if I need to do something that may require a little more table space like paying monthly bills or research work.

Deskcise Pro™ V9 All-In-One Desk Bike has 4 durable caster wheels that swivel 360 degrees and move smoothly over any floor surface, so if I want a change of scenery, like working on our deck in the summertime, I can simply move the desk from my office to outside.

 

It’s also great to bring it in the family room when I want a little break to watch a favorite television show. The wheels lock in place and keep the bike from rolling while it’s in use, once you find the spot you want to settle.

My sons are loving the Deskcise Pro™ V9 All-In-One Desk Bike, too. I’m 5’9 and they are 6’2 and 6’5, but because the seat and table adjust so easily with the simple press of a lever, we can all use it.

The desk bike has 8 resistance levels that take you from light activity (keeping your legs moving while you are typing) to a more robust aerobic workout. You can keep track of time, distance, calories and more with a handy built-in digital display. There’s even a cup holder and the desk has wrist rest pads built right in – the folks that designed the Deskcise Pro™ V9 All-In-One Desk Bike really thought of everything!

Set up of this device was a breeze. I had to pop the desktop on, adjust one bolt, put the batteries for the digital display in, and slip covers over the pedals so that I could use the bike with bare feet or socks, if desired. That’s it! A few minutes, tops, and I was ready to zoom into a better way of writing!

I’m truly thrilled with every aspect of the Deskcise Pro™ V9 All-In-One Desk Bike and will be using it regularly as part of my overall health-improvement plan. There was a time that I thought I might have to retire from writing to get a less sedentary lifestyle, but this amazing desk has revolutionized how I spend time in my office and given me the amazing opportunity to do what I love and improved my health simultaneously!

      The second I first read about it, I knew it was exactly what I needed! Totally agree, perfect for bloggers or anyone who does a lot of desk work. It’s completely changed my patterns to much healthier ones and I can already feel the difference. Hoping it helps me lose some weight, too, over time and I’m fairly confident that it will as I’m adding a lot more movement to my day.
