Who’s got time to fit it all in? The health regimes, the work routines, the family chores, the playtime outdoors? There’s just not enough hours in the day right? And it’s getting worse, not better, which is why businessman Steve Ferusi came up with an idea he thinks solves several of our time problems in one stroke.
The FitDesk Pro is a bolt-on accessory which is designed to fit onto an ordinary bicycle, which you can then use indoors as a trainer along with your laptop. The clever bits are the elbow rests which mean you can peddle away while computing (or reading) in comfort, thus getting a double whammy in one session.
You can work, play games, browse the web or do whatever you like while you’re treading the pedals, and at the end of the session you’ll have done yourself some physical benefit as well as the computing part. The device is priced at a a very reasonable $79.95, although you’ll need to supply the bike and a trainer rig for indoor use, of course. The company also sells a complete bike and ‘desk’ kit for $229.99. Go on, get fit, do yourself a favor.
