Fitdesk Under Desk Elliptical Report

How It Works And What It Does

Fitdesk Under Desk elliptical works by attaching to both your chair and the bottom of your desk. By attaching to both it ensures you do not move away from the fitdesk whilst using it. This is especially practical for those using the equipment whilst on a wheely chair.

The aim of this under desk device is to provide you with exercise in a situation where you would not normally have the chance. By providing exercise at work, Fitdesk promotes healthy living and working.

The Favourable Factors Of Fitdesk

One factor that works in the favour of the Fitdesk Under Desk elliptical is how easy it is to set up. The average user took less than 25 minutes to set up the full device, meaning you can get back to work and exercise quickly. The desk device weighs in at 31 ibs and comes on wheels, making it incredibly easy to transport despite being heavier than many competitors. From that point, attaching the product to the desk can be done in just a few simple steps.

Another factor that highlights the qualities of the Fitdesk Under Desk elliptical is the desktop monitor. This monitor allows the user to control tension settings, track usage and ensure they get the most out of their Fitdesk experience, without fumbling around under their desk constantly, trying to change a setting.

The price of the Fitdesk Under Desk elliptical is another positive. Although the price does range, depending on whether you buy from the official Fitdesk store or from a third party, it is always cheap. In terms of exercise products, it is one of the cheapest on the market, as well as being one of the most technologically advanced.

In general, the product is quiet. However, after prolonged use it can begin to squeak and become an irritating office distraction. This issue can be easily solved with the addition of WD40 to the bottom of the appliance. As well as being quiet, the product also packs in many benefits of much more expensive machines, such as those you may find at a gym. The full elliptical motion of the product allows motion to be smoother and unlike other competitors products, the Fitdesk Under Desk elliptical tends not to jerk and suddenly drag you in one direction or the other.

Fitdesk And Its Flaws

However, the Fitdesk Under Desk elliptical doesn’t come without its flaws. The product is quite long for a piece of under desk equipment. This may mean it does not entirely fit under every different type of desk in a workplace. This can be regarded as a major design flaw, as in that is, in essence, one of the main aims of the product.

Even if the product does fit under your desk, it use may be limited. Many users may find using the product whilst working difficult or distracting. They may even find it painful over long periods. However, Fitdesk have tried to combat these issues by adding a foot massager to the center of the product. This is in the hope that people rest and don’t overstrain themselves from the product. It can also help users to relax during office hours.
