FINALLY, some good news for the time-starved, deskbound individuals amongst us. What if we told you, you could burn calories and get your blood pumping, all while you sypher through your seemingly never-ending to-do list?
Exercise whilst working? It’s a heck yes from us.
In a study published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, a group of office workers were provided with under the desk pedal exercisers (mini-bike) for a trial period of 16 weeks.
The best news of all, for those wanting to lose weight, the under-desk cyclists burned an extra 107 calories each day, which adds up to more than 500 calories per week.
If you’re on a weight loss journey, you can bump up the time spent cycling and incorporate the Deskcise Pro into your current health and fitness routine.
If your productivity is greater when you have a chance to get your body moving, then this product is about to be your bosses, new best friend.
Study participants who had the mini-bikes, used them:
- On 70% of working days and pedalled an average of 50.2 minutes a day
- An average of 4 minutes 24 seconds in each session of usage
- An average of 18.6 times a day
- At an average speed of 59.3 rpm
… and achieved these outcomes:
- Beneficial changes in weight, total fat mass, body fat percentage, and resting heart rate, increasing with the average minutes pedalled each day
- A significant connection was observed between average pedalling speed and decrease in waist circumference
- Significant associations were observed between the average minutes the cycle was used each day and improvements in work performance, including self-reported concentration at work and fewer days missed because of physical or mental health problems
Do you struggle to find time in your busy schedule to provide your body with the exercise you so badly crave?
