Exercise, as we all know, is an important component of a healthy lifestyle. However, in a world where we all tend to prioritize our careers over all other things like relationships, time, home, health, etcetera; everything else would almost always take the back seat just to keep on top of things and avoid being left out in the hustle and bustle called life. As sad as it is true, some of us live or spend most of our time in the office than anywhere else outside of it.
In light of this, office fitness products were invented to address the challenge of keeping both career and health in check.
THE WORK AND LIFE BALANCE, IS IT REALLY ACHIEVABLE?
How often have you heard of the saying “Health is Wealth?” I’m guessing a lot. This is because there’s truth to that. Think about the last time you had a good workout…how did it make you feel afterward? Though tired, happy and energized, right? In fact, you feel like you are such in a good mood that everything else feels so much better. You feel alert, happy, and unstoppable. That is what a good workout does to your body and your health. When you’re active and feel good about yourself, it allows you and your body to get more work done. Now, that’s work and life in a healthy balance.
Achieving this in the gym or in the comforts of your home; easy and doable. But what if you’re one of those people who don’t have the luxury of time at home or elsewhere due to the unbelievable demands of a career? Do you just throw in the towel and hope for the best? The answer is NO! Make the Cubii Smart Under Desk Elliptical your new fitness/health buddy 😊
Why choose a Cubii Smart Under Desk Elliptical?
Imagine breaking a sweat while getting entertained at the same time. No problem! Thus, the invention of the Bike Desk and the Desk Cycle. These are small, portable pedal exercise products designed to be used seated or while standing directly on the pedals while watching TV.
Now, imagine the office-setting. Allow me to introduce the Cubii Smart Under Desk Elliptical, the true office fitness innovation. The Cubii Smart Under Desk Elliptical is an intelligently designed under desk fitness machine so sleek and portable that it can be used while working at a computer.
Now, that’s WorkWhileWalking & WorkWhileStanding made possible 😊
The Cubii is one of several new under-desk elliptical trainers in the market to feature a lower profile pedaling motion making it generally easier on your muscles, joints, and knees. Similar under desk cycles and bike trainers require higher circular pedaling which can be both difficult and stressful to muscles and joints.
What sets the Cubii Smart Under Desk Elliptical from other high-tech office fitness equipment in the market is its “smart” functionality. Cubii’s Bluetooth capability allows you to pair and link to an app on your smartphone or other popular wearable fitness devices such as FitBit. You can now keep track of your exercise stats like distance, speed, stride, time, and calories burned on your Android or iPhone. Most products offer similar tracking ability, but your numbers can be accessed separately through a cumbersome console; on the product itself or on your desk.
The Cubii app allows its user to make fitness goals, share progress, or compete with friends.
The Cubii is the only NEAT-certified desk elliptical on the market today. It certifies the device as the most effective among its product counterparts. It increased energy expenditure by more than 10% over sitting. Using Cubii exceeded energy expenditure by 80% compared to that of stationary sitting.
The Cubii is also known to be durable and of high quality. Other desk cycles are basic and generic mechanical devices, they’re just not bound to last. Truly, nothing beats Cubii in the category of under desk ellipticals. You can never go wrong with the Cubii!
The Cubii Fitting in at the Office
How to fit these devices in the office environment is a natural concern, and it’s totally understandable. However, studies conducted on different users of this product are more at ease when they’re pedaling at their desks in private. We gathered notable user testimonials for your reference.
Based on reviews conducted from online retailer sites like Amazon, the Cubii is generally quiet when used. Other similar products squeak or are making annoying noises. Some describe Cubii as making only a ‘soft white noise’ or a ‘faint whishing’ while pedaling, and we consider that to be fairly accurate. The Cubii is quiet enough to be unnoticeable to your coworkers, and that’s important in an office setting.
The Cubii Smart Under Desk Elliptical approximately measures 23″ x 17.5″ x 10”, considered to be one of the shorter units in terms of the height based on the research we’ve conducted. Its other dimensions are around the average for the desk cycle category. At the weight of 28 pounds, a bit on the heavier side, but the convenient built-in handle that makes the Cubii unit mobile takes care of that. The Cubii’s weight is evenly distributed throughout the frame making it stable when carried and won’t tip easily.
The design is sleek and fresh, truly professional looking. They come in two (2) color patterns: Black with Red, and Gray with Black. It’s not hard to see how it fits professionally in a smart, tech-friendly work environment. Overall, the Cubii is perfect for office-setting use. Now available in three models and three colors to choose from:
Base Model Cubii Jr: Black with aqua detail.
Pro Version: Black (with red detail) and Chrome
Elite Version: Sophisticated dark wood finish.
The Cubii Smart Under Desk Elliptical is the Cadillac in that category. Solid and built to last. Quality at its finest! It comes in an attractive packaging not found from other products in this category. True…Cubii is a newer product, not yet tried and tested. However, in contrast to many other products in this category, no complaints were received about this product on Amazon. For a newbie, it managed to covet a rare 5-star average in customer reviews.
As height varies from one person to another, take note that all desk pedal units require switching to a height-adjustable desk to ensure ease of use. When fixed-height desks are involved, a sit-stand desk is highly recommended to avoid hurting/injuring your knees. Features unique to Cubii such as wifi connection, phone app, and sleek design makes it a bit pricey than its competitors. Under desk ellipticals, comfortability wise, pose discomfort issues on lower spine, neck, and shoulders. It affects all products in the category. A standing desk or walking desk is highly recommended for you if you have issues concerning the spine, neck, and shoulders. Consult your doctor and proceed accordingly.
Under Desk, Ellipticals are definitely fit for office desk use. That’s smart ergonomics and quality similar to a Cadillac. It’s the only “smart” unit with Bluetooth capability, access to workout stats made easy to motivate you each and every time.
