FitDesk, one of the pioneers in the fitness industry makes lightweight exercise desks so that you can enhance your fitness levels and burn calories while simultaneously doing your desk job.

Since it is becoming difficult to find time for exercise in our otherwise busy lives, FitDesk helps you to be productive and stay active at the same time. Various types of FitDesk machines designed by the company include recumbent bikes, upright bikes and under desk peddlers etc. Let us have a look about these type of FitDesk machines in detail.

Why FitDesk Stands Out Among the Rest

The company is quite famous for building the exercise desks that help to boost your cardiovascular health and physical fitness while you are working on your computer, surfing the net, studying or gaming etc. Nevertheless, one thing that is common in all the machines designed by the company is that they are extremely quiet and hardly make any noise when in operation, which is an essential feature if you are using it at your workplace.

Also, all the FitDesk machines have 8 levels of magnetic resistance to control your workout intensity and a twin belt high-velocity flywheel to give you a smooth pedal motion. Moreover, large pedals in the machines make the foot placement easy and comfortable. The Performance Metre in the machines tracks your calories, time and mileage. As a result, the users can get efficient and best results while working at home by exercise bike or in office.
