REVIEW – After I’m again at work I clock a few miles of strolling a day, so though I spend a good period of time sitting, I didn’t fear about the entire “sitting is the brand new smoking” factor. Nevertheless, because of limitless entry to streaming providers and distant working, I’m way more sedentary than I was. After I noticed the Flexispot Sit2Go 2-in-1 health chair, I made a decision this was an superior technique to incorporate some motion into my workday.
The Flexispot Sit2Go 2-in-1 health chair is a hybrid of a stationary bike and an workplace chair.

Design and Options
The Flexispot Sit2Go 2-in-1 health chair got here packed rather well with plenty of safety from the perils of delivery. My son is my resident building man and he had the chair put collectively in about quarter-hour. It’s actually only a matter of placing the pedals on it and attaching the chair components to the principle piece.
After I first noticed the chair on the Flexispot web site, I used to be fascinated. They present a girl who makes use of it for her morning exercise, then she will get dressed, goes to work and makes use of it beneath her desk, then she goes to the breakroom and makes use of it whereas she sits and chats together with her coworkers. Thoughts you, she doesn’t transfer the chair – the chairs are principally simply scattered all through her office. It makes it seem like the proper chair as a result of it may be used at counter top, desk top and in between. And that’s true, it’s tremendous adjustable height-wise. Nevertheless, I shortly realized that if you happen to’re utilizing it to pedal at a desk, you really want a reasonably excessive desk since you want room in your knees to go up and down. The seat adjusts up and down, however the pedals don’t, and that’s what dictates how excessive your legs will go when pedaling. My son took my Flexispot Comhar desk that I reviewed again in March, so I believed I’d use it on the kitchen bar space in my home. I moved a barstool over, wheeled the chair over and realized there was one other downside with that: the entrance wheels hit the bottom of the bar and so I couldn’t actually get as near the counter as I wanted to work on my laptop computer comfortably. My recommendation in case you are critically contemplating this chair is to put money into a standing or adjustable top desk. Fortunately, Flexispot needed a evaluate of their Esben Standing Desk UD4 and so they despatched me one to check out (it’s superior). So I arrange my new desk and chair and acquired to pedaling.
The Flexispot Sit2Go 2-in-1 health chair is basically two issues. It’s a desk chair and a stationary bike. As a chair, it’s not precisely like sitting in a daily desk chair, though Flexispot has achieved it’s greatest to make it comfy. It has a gel seat that’s contoured to facilitate leg motion whereas pedaling but in addition is massive sufficient so that you don’t really feel such as you’re sitting on a motorcycle seat. The mesh backrest is kind of comfortable and supportive. The again and seat are adjustable in a lot of methods for top and place relative to one another. I personally appreciated the seat oriented all the best way again in direction of the mesh backrest whereas typing and all the best way ahead whereas pedaling, so I loosened up the hex bolts and took one off which allowed me to maneuver it backwards and forwards each time I needed. The pedals are a bit grippy however not uncomfortable if you happen to’re utilizing them with naked ft. I believed the pedals would intervene and hassle me after I wasn’t pedaling, however I tended to place my ft on high of the entrance wheels and I discovered that to be very comfy. All in all, I feel Flexispot did a terrific job design-wise straddling the bounds of an train bike and a desk chair (it couldn’t have been straightforward).
As a stationary bike, you shouldn’t anticipate the Flexispot Sit2Go 2-in-1 health chair to be as fancy as what you could be used to at your health club. It’s pretty fundamental in its design, with a knob that adjusts the resistance. I tended to maintain the knob within the center and I used to be in a position to form of absentmindedly pedal all through my day. I used to be very shocked that I had pedaled almost 5 miles on the primary day and I felt it in my legs the subsequent day though I didn’t actually put any acutely aware effort into what I used to be doing. Might I break a sweat with this? In all probability, however I really feel like I couldn’t be typing or doing work if I used to be actually pedaling up a storm. I can barely stroll and chew gum on the similar time, although, so possibly you’re completely different. Once more, remember the fact that whereas the seat adjusts to be taller, the pedals keep in the identical place, so if you happen to’re utilizing it at a decrease top it would really feel uncomfortable (like your bike seat is just too low).
The bike has a show that I had a tough time studying, and in the event that they ever make one other model of this, I hope they put one in that’s brighter. There’s a button that switches between the timer, the velocity, the gap, the energy burned, the odometer and the RPMs, however you may’t simply see the readout as a result of it’s fairly dim and it’s fairly darkish as a result of it’s beneath your desk. It additionally may be very laborious to inform which mode is being displayed. I needed to get off my chair to inform for positive. For me, it’s not that huge of a deal, as a result of I’m not making an attempt to trace my progress or something, however I do know lots of people are and would even have a tough time seeing what is occurring on the show.
One other factor that I feel may use some refinement are the wheels on the chair. They work OK whenever you’re not on the chair however if you wish to scoot as much as the desk with out getting up you in all probability would have a tough time. I saved desirous to seize onto the desk to tug myself nearer and you’ll’t try this with these wheels.
What I like
- Straightforward to make use of
- Straightforward to train and never discover you’re exercising
What I’d Change
- The show must be brighter
- The wheels might be extra versatile
All in all, I actually just like the Flexispot Sit2Go 2-in-1 health chair. I attempt to steer clear of excessive affect train for well being causes and biking is one thing virtually anybody can do. Additionally, you may cycle into outdated age if you happen to’re not having to fret about balancing and falling off. I used to be shocked how a lot biking I may do with out even actually making an attempt, and though I’m not sweating or huffing and puffing, it’s extra motion than I used to be doing earlier than, and that must be useful.
