Thought you knew all about active working? Well, we’ve found a new way to help you beat sedentary habits, boost calorie burn, and keep health problems at bay – and even better, you can get your hands on one at £50 discount if you pre-order before the end of September 2019.
The new Yo-Yo DESK® BIKE has already caught the eye of the experts, and is set to feature in a forthcoming episode of the Channel 4 TV show How to Lose Weight Well.
Sit-Stand.Com MD Gavin Bradley says: “Our Yo-Yo DESK® BIKE is a way to keep blood circulating and promote ongoing activity even when you are seated. It is perfect for meeting rooms and break-out spaces in offices, people who work from home, or those who do extra work at home after the office day is done.”
Sufferers of restless leg syndrome, Type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure can expect to find the Yo-Yo DESK® BIKE (£316.79 ex VAT) brings many health benefits. As a low-impact activity, slow cycling while you work is possible for almost everyone.
It’s the ideal way to increase activity levels during sedentary office hours: perfect for people who cannot find the time to get moving outside the workplace. That’s why expert health presenter Dr. Xand van Tulleken has chosen to include the Yo-Yo DESK® BIKE in the new series of How to Lose Weight Well, which will air January 2020.
Even set at the lowest level of resistance (there are eight levels in total), constant slow pedalling at our Yo-Yo DESK® BIKE allows you to increase your energy expenditure by 50% compared with sitting at your desk.
Ready to get in the saddle? Three ways to make the most of the Yo-Yo DESK® BIKE:
- Take it slow. You are not trying to win a stage of the Tour de France. Fast pedalling will interfere with concentration and ability to perform everyday work tasks such as reading and typing. Keep your cadence slow, using the same amount of effort as for a leisurely walk to boost blood circulation and gain a small calorie burn benefit.
- Be prepared to get a lot of attention. People will be queuing up to have a go on the Yo-Yo DESK® BIKE. Locate the desk bike in a place where it can be used for one-on-one meetings, with staff taking it in turns to spend time pedalling and then standing.
- Use Yo-Yo DESK® BIKE for low-intensity tasks such as reading reports, watching videos, checking emails or doing research. A standing desk is better for written and cognitive tasks requiring greater concentration.
An American University study found that students using a desk bike reported reduced stress and anxiety, while increasing morale and motivation. Installing a Yo-Yo DESK® BIKE in your workplace is the perfect way to keep active while you work this winter.
