Keep moving with an office bike!

Dutch people sit too much and exercise too little. It's not that this is unknown among the population, on the contrary, almost everyone knows it, but making a change in your lifestyle can be quite difficult and intense. Many people don't have the time or inclination to hit the gym every day after work. We are often so busy that we would rather spend an evening binge-watching Netflix. Just to relax instead of stretching our legs and going for a walk. Fortunately, it is now possible to exercise at the office with a desk bicycle! 

Office bike made for moving and sitting 

One of the coolest things we as office space brokers see in office spaces lately is the desk bicycle. Besides the trend to work standing up, we also see more and more desk bicycles. This is not at all surprising, a desk bicycle is comfortable and has a good seating position for both cycling and working. So should you spend the whole day cycling behind your desk? No, that is not the intention. An office bike is very handy to use in combination with a normal office chair or a sit-stand desk. You can cycle for an hour, sit for an hour and then stand for another hour. In this way, you spend the day in a variety of postures which is good for both your body and your mind. 

More happiness and creativity on a desk bicycle 

Research shows that when people cycle, hormones are released that make them happier and more creative. A study shows that employees who cycle to work are happier than those who travel by car. Would you like to travel to work by car or public transport and experience the same happiness as your cycling colleague? Then try a desk bicycle. Not only will it make you happier, it will also make you more creative. This is ideal if, for example, you work at an advertising agency or in any other profession where creativity is important. The Deskbike is one of the most popular desk bikes. This desk bike also has an app with which you can keep track of your speed and calorie consumption, for example. 

Get moving with a desk bike 

Companies are increasingly concerned with the welfare of their staff. Besides standing desks, healthy lunches and cycling schemes at the office, there is now also the desk bicycle. A desk bicycle makes you more creative, happier and is good for both body and mind. Get moving and feel more energetic! Maybe it feels a bit strange the first time, but you will soon get used to it and before you know it, you won't want anything else.
