I love tech gadgets. The holiday season is the time of year I love to look at the new tech offerings and pick my favorite new tech product for the holidays. This year my favorite new tech product is actually pretty low-tech, it’s the FlexiSpot Deskcise Pro exercise desk.
I’ve been trying to have a healthier lifestyle this year and have had some success at losing weight, but I still have a way to go to meet my goals. I’ve tried running but couldn’t sustain a regular schedule between my travel and the weather. It always seemed that as soon as I got a rhythm going, a week of rainy days, or a speaking trip, or on-site client engagement would break my habit.
I’ve had the Deskcise Pro for about a month now and I’ve managed to get on it 5 days a week for an hour or more each time. It’s been so easy to just hop on and catch up on my emails, do some research, or even watch a little Netflix while I ride. The small bike computer on the base keeps track of my time, distance, calories burned, etc.. I’ve lost six pounds in the four weeks I’ve used it and I’m definitely a satisfied user.
Although FlexiSpot was nice enough to send me this bike, I have not been paid for my opinion and FlexiSpot understood that I would share my thoughts good or bad. Fortunately, I’ve really enjoyed this product and would definitely recommend it to a friend.
- Well built, sturdy bike platform
- Wide desk for large laptop and cellphone
- Adjustable desk and seat height for my 6’3” frame
- Folds up and out of the way when not in use
- Cup holder is not very deep and I sometimes knock my water bottle out by accident
- Trip computer is really basic but functional
Overall I give the bike 5 stars for convenience, build quality, and utility.
