About a year ago, a study revealed a higher risk of death is linked to more time spent sitting, and in this business-oriented world we live in, office people spend more time sitting while working, which is not totally safe. Hammacher Sclemmer recently unveiled its new office desk called The Elliptical Machine Office Desk, which let’s you work and exercise at the same time.

Now you won’t have an excuse for not going to the gym as this new machine takes the gym in the comfort of your work space.

There’s really a lot of things to like about the product. It is very flexible and can be used in a lot of ways as its desk’s height is adjustable.

“This is the adjustable-height desk that pairs with a semi-recumbent elliptical trainer to let users exercise while on the job. Designed to be pedaled at slower cadences that won’t break one’s concentration (or cause one to break a sweat), an average user can burn about 4,000 calories in a typical workweek,” written in the Hammacher Schlemmer website.

“The elliptical machine’s generously padded seat slides smoothly along the frame to accommodate users of almost any stature, swivels for easy entry and exit, and has an adjustable backrest for comfort. Resistance is electronically controlled via the included performance monitor that tracks distance, watts, rpm, and calories burned, and displays information stored for up to 30 individuals on its 4″ x 6″ LED screen.”

By using the product, you can double your calorie loss from using a standing desk. The Elliptical Machine Office Desk is priced at around £5000.
