Product Review – FlexiSpot Deskcise Pro

The following is a sponsored post in which the opinions expressed are 100% my own and not those of the sponsor.

I love tech gadgets. The holiday season is the time of year I love to look at the new tech offerings and pick my favorite new tech product for the holidays. This year my favorite new tech product is actually pretty low-tech, it’s the FlexiSpot Deskcise Pro exercise desk.

Last year FlexiSpot asked me to try out their standing desk and I’ve loved using it all year long. When they asked me to try the Deskcise Pro, I was more than happy to give it a try.

FlexiSpot Deskcise Pro

I’ve been trying to have a healthier lifestyle this year and have had some success at losing weight, but I still have a way to go to meet my goals. I’ve tried running but couldn’t sustain a regular schedule between my travel and the weather. It always seemed that as soon as I got a rhythm going, a week of rainy days, or a speaking trip, or on-site client engagement would break my habit.

I’ve had the Deskcise Pro for about a month now and I’ve managed to get on it 5 days a week for an hour or more each time. It’s been so easy to just hop on and catch up on my emails, do some research, or even watch a little Netflix while I ride. The small bike computer on the base keeps track of my time, distance, calories burned, etc.. I’ve lost six pounds in the four weeks I’ve used it and I’m definitely a satisfied user.

Although FlexiSpot was nice enough to send me this bike, I have not been paid for my opinion and FlexiSpot understood that I would share my thoughts good or bad. Fortunately, I’ve really enjoyed this product and would definitely recommend it to a friend.

Pros:

  • Well built, sturdy bike platform
  • Wide desk for large laptop and cellphone
  • Adjustable desk and seat height for my 6’3” frame
  • Folds up and out of the way when not in use

Cons:

  • Cup holder is not very deep and I sometimes knock my water bottle out by accident
  • Trip computer is really basic but functional

Price: $499.99

Overall I give the bike 5 stars for convenience, build quality, and utility.

Feel free to ask me any questions you may have in the comments below.

  • Did the manufacturer not give you the Flexispot to keep or offer it to you for a deeply discounted price after your analysis and review? I can’t imagine them not offering at least a discount to keep the product because it could no longer be classified as “new” and there are typically shipping/restocking costs involved. The most important takeaway for me is that you’ve found a fun way to take better care of yourself while you work. :-) Great move!

    • Yes Barb, to be clear they gave me the bike to keep in exchange for writing this post. So yes, it was worth writing the post to keep in shape! :)

    Hello JED! How did you like it as a standing desk? How large is the work surface?

    • It’s adequate for a laptop Mary. However, at work I use their convertible desk which can support a monitor or two and sits on top of your existing desk. Its assisted riser helps you raise and lower it throughout the day very easily. You can check it out here: https://flexispot.com/workstations/
