Burn Calories Without Ever Leaving Your Desk

What if I told you that while I was typing this I was burning calories? In fact, 200-calories to be exact. No, I’m not on one of those bulky treadmill desks that take up half of your office. I’m sitting down in my office, at my desk, with the first smart under-desk elliptical.

Cubii, a small, unobtrusive under-desk elliptical with 8 resistance settings is my new best friend. Out of the box this 27.56 lbs machine only takes a few minutes to setup, with all the tools necessary included. Because of its weight, Cubii is easy to transport, however I don’t think I would want to lug it from home to office each day. The good news is it’s one of the most affordable under-desk ellipticals on the market.  Moreover, Cubii offers discounts the more you buy: $100 off when you buy two; $347 off when you buy six.

Track Your Workouts and Compete

Gamification, for many, is the only way they’ll do things these days. Take Pokemon GO for instance. It took a game about pocket monsters to get serious gamers outside to walk and socialize. The same concept goes for fitness. Cubii allows you to set goals for yourself and track how far you’ve traveled, how many calories you burned and your show your daily, weekly and monthly progress. It will also give you a notification if you’ve been inactive or haven’t met the daily goal you set. Even further, you can create groups with your friends to have a bit of friendly competition.

Oh, and did I mention Fitbit fitness tracker users can get in on the action? Get credit for your Cubii workout when you sync the data to your smart tracker.
