Improve your Health, Energy-Level and Productivity
Benefits of Exercising at Work
Aside from losing weight, improving their health, and extending their lifespan, people who exercise before or during work are happier, suffer less stress, and are more productive. This was discovered in a study performed by the University of Bristol.
Free up More Time in Your Day
With today's busy schedules it's difficult to find the time to get the exercise we need. The DeskCycle makes it easy to get safe and effective exercise while working at your desk, watching TV or any other time when you're sitting and your legs are free.
Benefits of Exercise
- Burn calories and lose weight
- Boost your energy level
- Increase your productivity
- Reduce your stress level
Double Your Energy Expenditure Without Working Up a Sweat
Increase in Energy Expenditure over Sitting
- Exercise Ball 6%
- Standing Desk 30%
- DeskCycle Level 1 50%
- DeskCycle Level 2 75%
- DeskCycle Level 3 100%
- Treadmill Desk 1.1 mph 100%
Sweating Is Not Required
Pedaling the DeskCycle at one rotation per second on the lowest resistance setting doesn't feel like exercise at all. Yet this will increase your energy expenditure 50% more than just sitting at your desk, and 20% higher than standing at your desk. The list to the right shows how much more your energy expenditure increases over just sitting at your desk for various desk exercise options.
Keep the Resistance Low at Your Desk
When using the DeskCycle at your desk you should set the resistance level to 3 or less. This low cardio zone increases your energy level and oxygen to your brain without distracting you from your work.
Perfect for the Workplace
Smooth Pedal Motion and Quiet Operation
Our patented magnetic resistance system is both smooth and quiet. The 39 lb effective flywheel weight keeps the pedals moving at a smooth pace. Smooth pedal motion makes pedaling the DeskCycle an unconscious activity so that you can focus your attention on your work. It's also very quiet, which allows you to pedal away without distracting your coworkers.
Low Profile and Wide Base
The low profile and wide base prevents the DeskCycle from rocking back and forth like the taller bikes. With the lowest pedal height of only 10 inches, the DeskCycle fits under desks as short as 27 inches. You may need to lower your chair, and if you are taller than 5 feet 8 inch you may need a taller desk.

DeskCycles in Schools
Ages 5 and Up
DeskCycles are used in schools by students aging from kindergarten on up. If your feet touch the ground when sitting in your chair, you can use the DeskCycle.
Benefits of the DeskCycle in Class
Through movement, students are able to gain more focus, which in turn helps them to think more critically and be more creative with their work.
As students are able to focus more, they are able to gain a deeper understanding of the content, which allows them to collaborate with others more effectively and communicate their thoughts more clearly.

Other Ways to Use the DeskCycle
Turn sedentary time into healthy exercise while:
- Watching TV
- Playing video games
- Talking on the phone
- Playing on your cell phone
- Or any other time when you're sitting still and your legs are free
If you want to burn calories, improve your health, mood and productivity while typing at your desk, then the DeskCycle is the bike for you. The DeskCycle was specifically designed to be used in the work environment. It has the same patented magnetic resistance mechanism as in the MagneTrainer. This insures smooth and quiet operation. Smooth pedal motion is healthy for your joints and won't distract you from your work. Quiet operation insures that you won't disturb your coworkers. Other bikes use friction resistance which is not smooth and can be noisy. The DeskCycle has a lower profile than the MagneTrainer. The pedals are 5 inches lower than the MagneTrainer so that it will fit under desks better. It could be used at a 27 inch desk by a person as tall as 5'7". At this height you will need to push the cycle further under your desk and extend your legs. You may also need to lower your chair. If you are taller, you will need a taller desk. The highest resistance level is twice as high as the highest resistance setting of the Magneciser, and MagneCycle. At the lowest level it takes no effort to pedal it. The pedal motion is bidirectional, which means you can pedal it forward as well as in reverse. This lets you work opposite muscle groups. It comes with the Large pedals with adjustable Velcro straps. It has 8 calibrated resistance levels. We also provide an online calorie calculator on the desk-cycle website.

Not everyone will take to it like I have, but it has made a huge difference for me! I have a very nice treadmill down in the basement, but the impacts on the knee joints were a problem. I was looking at getting a recumbent stationary bike when I happened across this gem.
Long story short in the couple of months that I've had it, I have to consciously choose _not_ to use it at least one day a week.
I'm a software engineer and scrum master. I work from home. I spend a _lot_ of hours on the phone running meetings and participating in meetings. I can pedal this thing at 10-14mpg without making _any_ noise whatsoever. I don't even have to mute the phone, there just isn't any noise to mute.
With the treadmill I would force myself to keep walking for as long as I could (persevering through the boredom of watching TV while I walked - TV is not my thing) until I did my 200-300 calories of exercise. That's when I could take the time to do it and I felt like spending some of my time on it.
With the DeskCycle, I find it's just like pacing the hall - it helps you think and I just do it without thinking. I now typically pedal 25 to 40 miles per day every day without even thinking about it (and that's with resistance on 6, which means I'm burning 600 to 1,000 additional calories every day.
It's not full-on aerobic, I'm not getting winded or the benefits of that, but I get huge benefits in that I feel so much better at the end of a long day, and it has greatly strengthened and toned my lower back muscles. It also put some vague vestige of stomach muscles on me.
The cons: The biggest one is wear and tear on your office chair. I have a Freedom chair, which is a pretty piece of hardware, and I'm a big guy of 240 pounds. The chair is being used like the seat on a recumbent bike, which are built a lot sturdier. I have to use silicone lube on the chair now and then because the parts are constantly shifting/rubbing as I'm peddling.
You also need to throw a towel over your chair if you're going to pedal hard. Office chairs aren't designed to be sweated in/on.
I'm using it under an Ergotron sit-stand desk with the Ergotron keyboard tray on it, and the geometry is good. I can comfortably type while I'm working, while I'm talking on the phone and while I'm surfing the web, but I do have short legs for my height (5'11" with ~31" inseam)
Two minor cons: First, the display should be backlit, it's very difficult to read under many conditions, and second, the metal bracket for mounting the display on the unit shouldn't be welded on. The unit becomes a natural footrest when not in use, and that hard metal bit sticking up gets in the way. If it were bolted on and they offered an optional flip-up padded footstool top that could be bolted on in place of it, that would be a helpful feature.
Build quality is excellent, no problems with pedals *however* I think I may know how people screw that up. I liked mine so much we ordered one for my wife. She tried to put it together but couldn't get the pedals to go on/make any sense. She's worse than me when it comes to not reading instructions. It took me a while but I finally realized she had mounted the legs backwards - the long leg the rear and short leg on the front. This completely changes what you think of as front/rear and left/right and the pedal installation instructions just don't make any sense until the legs are put in the proper place.
I don't award 5 stars often/lightly but this one is a five star product, it greatly exceeds my expectations. If I ever wear this one out, I'll be back for another. I'm probably going to buy a third one to keep in my "real" office at work because I get antsy now if I can't pedal while I'm working.
12/05/2016 - OK. So if you're like the average person over 40 (especially females) and have not been blessed with awesome metabolism, you will not lose significant weight using the deskcycle unless you combine it with a diet modification and increased aerobic exercise. Since I use this at an office setting and need to look professional (and not be sweating like I just left the gym), I cannot pedal faster than 15 MPH.
Since I hate exercising to begin with, I just modified my diet by eating very light for dinner and was able to lose some excess weight.
On a lighter note: My legs feel better and have changed its sculpture for the better. Before I began my diet, I did notice that I lost some of the fatty, lumpy areas just above my knees. It helps also if you reverse-pedal to work additional muscles.
Bottom line: Great for keeping your legs moving, but losing weight from it will take a very, very long time. And the machine is still quiet as ever after about 5 months!
After using this consistently for over a week now, here are my thoughts on the DeskCycle Desk Exercise Bike Pedal Exerciser, White.
Easy to set up
On-desk display option
No distraction (when set up properly)
Time flies and you will burn a LOT of calories without sweating so much
Hard on the knees (even if you're pedaling properly)
The calories setting will reset to 0 once you hit 1000 (However, this does not affect your distance. It will continue to count it!)
I will provide an update after a few months of my weight-loss results, but for now, my main focus was to keep moving my legs while I was working at my desk. Because I have a desk job, I did not get up and moved around a lot and I started getting really worried about my health after reading that even 1 hour of daily exercise will not undo the damage you do sitting all day at work.
The calories count up quickly. The pictured is after only 5 hours sitting at my desk (900 calories on 12mph). Because of the quiet, smooth motion, you may not feel it right away but your legs will be sore at the end of the day from the constant cycling. After the 3rd day and a moderate diet change, I lost about 4lbs (keep in mind this is prob mostly water weight). Also, if your legs are prone to swelling after a long day of sitting, this will get rid of that. My feet no longer feel like they're about to burst out of my shoes as I'm leaving for work!
I didn’t notice this until about the 4th or 5th day, but my knees started to feel very sore on resistance setting of 4. So I am now on resistance 3, which feels a lot better. Your legs will still feel it.
Be sure to set the Deskcycle up properly or you will feel very uncomfortable (correct your chair height, readjust your sliding keyboard tray, etc) to get the optimal advantage. The band which came with it doesn’t really hold the deskcycle up too well so I will have to find a thicker band to do the work. I’ve switched to a non-sliding executive office chair, but it’s still sliding backwards as I cycle. Very pleased so far, however.
