Working from home has brought many benefits over the past year. You could wear your PJs to meetings, you have your full kitchen there, and your commute was next to nothing. But there is one big disadvantage: you move less.

While you could try to squeeze a little more into your regular workout routine to make up for it, finding the time can be difficult. That’s where the DeskCycle comes in. This handy machine is a small version of an exercise bike – and you can use it while you’re still WFH, or even take it with you to the office. And, at this point, the DeskCycle is discounted to $169 with an on-page coupon (was $209) at Amazon.

This portable bike is so, so cool. For starters, it’s compact. Just slide it under your desk and you can start pedaling right away. It even works under desks as low as 27 inches!

The bike has a magnetic resistance mechanism for a quiet, smooth ride, so it won’t interrupt you while you work. It also has eight calibrated resistance settings so you can go from an easy cruise to more challenging settings.

You can even track your speed, time, distance and calories burned with the DeskCycle!

The DeskCycle has tons of fans, including many who swear it helped them lose weight. “Dear God, the weight loss!” says a five star reviewer who lost 30 pounds in one month. “I convinced several colleagues to buy these and now our corporate gym sells them on campus,” they said. “This is absolutely SILENT and it will literally be a deal breaker in accepting future jobs if I can’t have this at my desk. I can’t believe the difference in how I feel.”

Another called the DeskCycle “brilliant,” writing, “it could make real differences in people’s quality of life.” One happy motorcyclist even called the DeskCycle “the best thing since sliced ​​bread,” pointing out that it’s quiet, only takes five minutes to set up, and is effective. “I can do a slow, steady ride — 20 mph at resistance 2 or 3 — or I can do a high-intensity (HIIT) workout — 30 mph at resistance 3 or 4.”

If you want to move more but can’t sacrifice time at your desk, this is one deal you don’t want to miss.
