- 1 Exerpeutic Workfit 1000 Desk Station Review
The company claims that “work/exercise can improve mental alertness, heighten creativity, fight depression, burn calories, tone muscles and improve overall well-being” which is something that has been well researched and established. It is not necessary to exercise while working, but for those having trouble finding the time to exercise, Exerpeutic Workfit 1000 Desk Station is a great option, especially if the work involves only the use of a computer or using the mobile phone. The seat is quite comfortable for short duration of activity and the backrest makes it easy to do your workout while working. There are more comfortable models out there, but this is a folding model and is relatively compact.

Features of the Exerpeutic Workfit 1000 Desk Station
Let’s have a look at the main features of Exerpeutic Workfit 1000 Desk Station.
Strong & Compact
Powder coated steel frame. Can handle up to 140Kg. Quick and easy to fold. 30 Kg overall weight but wheeled for easy movement.
Magnetic Tension Control System and Crank System
Magnetic Tension control system offers 8 tension levels for easy to strenuous workouts. The pedaling is smooth through the 3 pieces cranking system.
The user can monitor the distance, time and speed of activity along with calories burned on the LCD panel which also displays the heart rate using the Hand Pulse Sensors.
The precision balanced flywheel and V- belt drive makes for a low noise and smooth motion, so there is little sound even with intense activity. This is extremely good for a good work environment when you are speaking to a client or trying to think about an idea at work.
The pedal is large by design and comes with safety straps. The user can strap their feet easily to the pedal and this prevents foot slippage while exercising. There are also adjustable screws provided at the end of the cycle base, which helps to stabilize the bike even on uneven surfaces. This helps avoid any wobble of the machine and again helps with the ease and safety of usage.
Foam cushioned seat and backrest provide comfortable seating. The special AIRSOFT seat cushion stays cool over many hours of usage and improves comfort. There is 2 feet wide work surface adequate for a laptop. The surface is tilted able and also has two cup holders and a drawer for keys and pens etc. A soft foam arm support is also provided.
What are the Pros and Cons?
If you are looking for a basic, fold-able unit on which you can exercise while working on your laptop or talking to your clients, this is the machine for you. The build is sturdy and the machine will last you a long time. But the system is not future ready and its “computer” is not able to even help you log the activity details of the day to your mobile or the internet. If these are not your priorities, then the machine is ideal for you, especially if you need something that is easily movable and compact. The price is quite good for a machine with these features and the company is well regarded in the market for quality products. Overall a good buy for the money.
Have a good time exercising.
