The sitting life is not a friend to your body and one of the ways to combat it is through desk exercise — yes, that means burning some calories while archiving emails. And with today’s Amazon deal, you can get the highly rated Cubii Pro Under Desk Elliptical for $250, or 26% off its average price — it’s a good opportunity to start fighting back.
The Pro is Amazon’s No. 1 best selling elliptical — that category includes the big ones and small ones — so topping that list is a pretty big deal. The under-desk elliptical syncs to your phone to track your sedentary workouts. Optimized for sitting, the design will keep your knees from bumping up against the bottom of your desk.
More importantly, the Pro is designed to be very quiet so you won’t bother your coworkers too much. But to be sure, the amount of sound it makes is the topic of one of the top questions on the product page. “I’ve been using this model at an office for about 2 years now and none of my neighbors (separated by 4’ cubicle walls) can tell,” one reviewer wrote. Another assures us that while the machine “lets out a squeak once in a while,” it’s otherwise “rhythmic enough that it doesn't seem to bother people.”
If delaying the creeping consequences of sitting life is on your mind, take this discount as an opportunity to get an elliptical under your desk.
