FlexiSpot Deskcise Pro Exercise Bike – Is it the Right Option for You!

The FlexiSpot Deskcise Pro is a good option for anyone who’s worried their work-life has become too sedentary and wants to add some physical activity into the mix. It’s common knowledge that sitting for hours at a desk is unhealthy, which is why it’s so great that we see a lot of office furniture/workout equipment hybrids to address this issue.

The eight levels of resistance offer more than just movement. If you turn the knob to the higher levels, you can expect to feel the burn (depending on your fitness level). The pedals run smoothly and quietly, which is essential when you’re working or on a call.

The monitor is basic but provides the key performance stats on time, speed, distance, calories burned, and RPM. The range in seat height should be enough for anyone between 5”1 – 6”2 and can be adjusted quite easily.

The FlexiSpot Deskcise Pro is compact and sturdy, weighing about 90 lbs, and has a weight capacity of 300 lbs, which makes it an excellent choice for most riders. It’s also on wheels, so it can be easily rolled out of the way when not in use.

The compact seated CS3 model can be used in your home gym and for fitness enthusiasts of any skill level who want a low impact workout.

Teeter FreeStep Recumbent Cross Trainer – An Excellent Choice!

The Teeter FreeStep Recumbent Cross Trainer, unlike regular recumbent bikes, provides a full-body workout. While we usually get bored after 20 minutes of supine exercise, with the FreeStep recumbent by Teeter, you will hardly want to leave the machine.

The Teeter Freestep recumbent machine has a soft and comfortable adjustable seat to accommodate users of all heights. As far as the backrest goes, it’s well-cushioned, full, and it’s 3-position reclining adjustable. So, you can lean back and do a relaxed cardio workout or lean a bit forward and do a more intense home exercise.

The Teeter exercise machine offers a smooth linear stepping pedal motion. And since it’s not circular, it has less impact on the knees compared to recumbent bikes. The pedals are huge and anti-slip with safety edges to keep your feet in place. But what we like the most is the handlebars, they are vertically adjustable to allow all members of the family to do a low impact exercise regardless of their height.

This recumbent cross trainer by Teeter features a silent magnetic resistance that applies to the handlebars and the pedals at the same time. The fact that the resistance refers to the lower and upper body makes this machine much better than expensive similar recumbent bikes that offer resistance to pedal only.
