FAQs

How do I effectively integrate these fitness products into a busy work-from-home schedule?

Integrating fitness products into a busy work-from-home schedule can be more straightforward than it seems. The key is to find moments in your day where physical activity can be naturally incorporated. For instance, using a walking pad desk or an under-desk bike during routine work tasks like answering emails or during less intensive work phases can seamlessly blend fitness into your workday. Additionally, setting specific times for short exercise breaks, such as a quick walk or a cycling session, can help in maintaining a balance between work and physical activity without overwhelming your schedule.

Are there specific exercises or routines recommended for these products to maximise their benefits?

When it comes to specific exercises or routines for these products, the approach largely depends on the type of equipment and your personal fitness goals. For walking pad desks and under-desk bikes, a consistent, moderate pace is generally recommended to maintain productivity while exercising. For instance, a light to moderate walking pace on a walking pad is ideal for most work tasks. Similarly, a steady, comfortable cycling speed on an under-desk bike can provide a good balance between physical activity and work efficiency. The goal is to integrate movement without exhausting yourself, so you remain productive in your work.

Can these products be easily adjusted or customised to fit different body types and fitness levels?

LifeSpan products, known for their versatility, cater to a broad spectrum of body types and fitness levels, including plus-sized individuals. Walking pad desks and under-desk bikes typically come with adjustable settings to accommodate different heights and preferences. For instance, the height of the desks can usually be modified to suit various user heights, ensuring ergonomic comfort. Similarly, the resistance levels on bikes can be adjusted to match different fitness levels, making them suitable for beginners as well as more experienced users. This adjustability not only enhances comfort but also ensures that everyone can achieve an effective workout, regardless of their starting point.
