A bike desk is the perfect option for people who prefer to “pedal and work.” Individuals can pedal while on conference calls, typing, answering emails or surfing the web. To allow comparison with the recommended daily step count of 10,000 per day, a LifeSpan bike desk counts each pedal revolution, or “rev,” as a step. The bike positions you upright while your arms rest on the desk, without the need to lean forward. If your space is limited, this bike is no larger than a standard office chair. It is a great choice for anyone who would like to quietly add physical activity into their workday.
Our Workplace bike desks include many unique features to support a lifestyle change and promote long-term use.
LifeSpan Fitness Club Account: Each bike desk comes with a LifeSpan Fitness Club account. This account lets you set goals and track progress against those goals, whether for yourself or a team. The LifeSpan Fitness Club is supported by online software called the Interactive Health Partner (IHP). IHP can be customized and branded with your company information, and the IHP Team can provide you with coaching support, results reporting and more.
Apps That Track Your Activity Progress: All Workplace products include a free downloadable app that communicates via Bluetooth to connect with your Bluetooth-enabled Windows or Mac computer. This app wirelessly syncs with your LifeSpan Fitness Club account so that all activity is tracked and stored in one place.
Pedal Counting: This is a great way to measure and motivate yourself. LifeSpan treadmill desks include the exclusive “Intelli-Step” feature that counts each step automatically. A similar feature is offered on our Bike Desk models, counting pedaling revolutions–”revs”–which provides an easy comparison to steps for office challenges and team competitions.
