Is your hectic work schedule keeping you from being physically fit? Finally, here’s a physical activity that you’ll never put aside for work. With its built-in desk, the Exerpeutic ExerWork 1000 Folding Exercise bike lets you work and exercise at the same time.
Sitting at a desk for prolonged periods is associated with many health risks. Studies show that 30 minutes of physical activity per day in a week could prevent 1 in 12 deaths worldwide. Moreover, stationary biking improves cognitive functions, including attention and memory.
The ExerWork 1000 is a product of Paradigm Health & Wellness under the Exerpeutic brand. Exerpeutic is known for promoting health and wellness through a variety of exercise products, ranging from treadmills to stationary bikes.
Exerpeutic ExerWork 1000 Folding Exercise is both an exercise bike and a workstation. Its goal is to help you burn calories and become physically active while checking your emails and replying to messages. With an easy set-up, LCD display console, adjustable desktop, and state of the art torque, it’s the ideal device to suit your work and exercise needs.
Dimensions and Desk Adjustment
The ExerWork has the dimensions of 45.3” L x 25” W x 51.3” H. At 16” L x 24” W, its desktop supports up to 44 pounds. Whether you’re using your laptop, tablet, smartphone, or everything all at once, the ExerWork desktop can serve as a work platform for your devices.
To make sure that you maintain an ergonomically correct posture, the desktop can also change into three different positions: flat, 16 degrees, and 33 degrees. The desktop can also slide forward and back as well as lower from 41” to 45”.
Set-up and Assembly
When you get the package, you can see that the bike is only partially assembled. You’ll need to assemble the rest of the parts yourself. This includes the desktop, seats, backrests, and handlebars. The diagrams and instructions are clear and easy enough to understand. Moreover, it includes tools that will allow you to finish assembling the parts.
Assembly is easy and can only take at least an hour. A faster way to do it is to ask another person to help you hold the parts.
The bike has an LCD computer display, which tracks the number of calories that you’ve burned, the distance you’ve traveled, and other details, such as speed, time, odometer, scan, and resistance levels.
You have to start pedaling to get the console started. It automatically turns off four minutes after you’ve stopped pedaling. However, you can still return to it at a later time as it automatically stores your stats.
A tension knob at the bottom of the desk controls the bike’s magnetic resistance. It has eight levels of intensity from which you can choose, depending on the level of exercise you want to undergo.
For those who want an extreme workout, it won’t happen with the ExerWork 1000. For one, its intensity level ranges from easy to moderately difficult. The goal here is to just provide users with an added physical activity as they go about their hectic work schedules.
Max Weight Capacity
The product weighs 64.7 pounds and can support up to 400 pounds of weight. It has a sturdy frame of steel and stabilizer bars.
More than just working, you can also use the ExerWork 1000 while watching your favorite television shows and playing video games. The bike won’t be distracting as it makes zero noise when in use. This also means that the ExerWork won’t disrupt your office mates’ work.
You can adjust the bike’s desktop into a standing desk in case you get tired of sitting. The desktop also includes a cup holder, as well as a storage container to keep your important items within reach.
After use, there’s no need to disassemble. You can simply fold the bike for easy storage. It also has transportation wheels that would help you relocate the device without having to carry it. When it folds, it takes up a footprint of 21.3" L x 25.5" W, so it’s easy to place behind the door or closet.
ExerWork 1000 vs EXERWORK 2000i
The EXERWORK 2000i and the ExerWork 1000 appear to be similar, but they have critical differences. For example, 2000i has a Bluetooth function that allows you to keep track of your workout routines through an Android or iOS app. On the other hand, the ExerWork 1000 doesn’t have such a feature, so you need to input your workout results in an app manually.
Other than that, the ExerWork 1000 has eight intensity levels while the ExerWork 2000i has a whopping 24 that ranges from easy to challenging. The two models are both adjustable and durable and contain sliding desktops that you can transform into a standing desk.
Can it be used by short people (5ft)?
When adjusting the ExerWork 1000, you may choose from two positions: low setting and high setting. The low setting is for people whose heights range from 5’1” to 5’6”. On the other hand, the high setting is for those whose heights range from 5’7” to 6’3”. You can even reattach the seats to a different position.
Is It Easy to Type While Pedaling?
The ExerWork contains a durable soft armrest that helps you relax while you work and pedal. It even includes an airsoft seat with individual air chambers that can give you enough comfort while you’re pedaling. Its adjustable backrest also provides extra comfort whether you’re typing or working out.
What is the warranty?
If you buy from the Paradigm Health & Wellness website, you’re entitled to three years limited warranty plus five extra years.
So far, customers adore this bike. It’s easy to assemble and store after use. It’s also easy to type while pedaling. It’s a comfortable workspace that easily contributes to weight loss and overall well-being. However, some still wish that the table could be bigger to accommodate larger devices. Other than that, the bike seems to be working its magic.
Overall, the Exerpeutic ExerWork 1000 Folding Exercise bike is the perfect device if you want to increase your productivity and improve your health. While it’s not designed for intense workouts as some of the best folding exercise bikes on the market, it definitely accomplishes its mission of providing added physical activities to your daily work routine. Indeed, you no longer have to choose between working and staying fit.
