I recently was sent the FitDesk to review. I love biking and have some how let it get away from me as I have found myself getting glued to the computer and stuck in the edit bay, whether it be at home or at the office. When I got the bike, I put it together immediately. It didn’t take long and it was pretty easy. So I wouldn’t be concerned with that.
After the bike was put together I put my big 17″ laptop on it and got some gym shorts on (not necessarily in that
order). I used the two straps to make sure it was actually on the desk part of the bike. It worked really well. I tried to edit while using the bike and that’s when things got complicated. Now that isn’t the fault of the FitDesk though, it’s tough to concentrate on the creative side of cutting while you are doing something else. However there are plenty of times where we all need to do something that is relating to the edit that isn’t actually cutting.
I think that the FitDesk has a place in the editing or at least the office next door. It’s fairly compact, it’s really quiet and has some wheels on the bottom so it can be moved around if needed. There are a few moments where we need to step away from the desk, but don’t have the time to go to a gym or we aren’t in a great environment to go on a walk (late night edits anyone?). If we need to answer some emails, watch some footage or even play a video game to get the mind off the edit, the FitDesk is a great answer to all of that.
You can check out their website hereif you are interested. I’d recommend it for sure.
