Great Fitness Gadget: Peddle Anywhere

We're always looking for a way to multi task when it comes to fitness. So, one way to burn a few more calories throughout your day is to use a Mini Portable Cycle such as this one from Sharper Image.

The beauty of having a portable cycle is that you can peddle pretty much anywhere you have a chair and, unlike a stationary bike that it tucks away easily. This means that you can be peddling while watching TV at home, while you're talking to your mom on the phone or even while you're at your desk at work. What's more? You can also put it on top of a table to give your arms a great workout too (smaller hand grips are included). If this is just what you need to boost the amount of calories you burn in a day then buy it from for $79.95.

I really want one of these, and I think I'm going to order it. My work and school schedule is killer, and this might be the best thing until my schedule frees up a bit. Thanks for the tip, Fit!

this looks like fun! I love to bike, and this could help keep me spinning when it gets cold outside!

You can change the resistance on it. It is a pretty noticable difference too.

I have always wondered if it works as well as it seems like it would. Our mini-stepper from Sharper Image is great.

This looks cool! I'd totally use it in front of the TV. Anyone know if you can change the resistance on it?

jkat, I can totally see trying to use this with a rolling chair! Funny. I totally want to get this, the stationary bike at home takes up way too much precious space.

I actually bought this and have it under my desk at work. I never use it because it is hard to use with desk chair (the desk chair rolls around too much) and I get sweaty after 10 minutes (its harder than you think).
