Keep your blood flowing when you’re sat down with the portable Pedal Exerciser
It’s important to keep active; we all know this, and it’s being drilled into us more than ever before. Keeping active benefits our physical and mental health, allowing us to lead a healthy lifestyle.
However, with our sedentary culture, keeping active can be difficult. Did you know that you can spend up to 19 hours being inactive a day; in particular those who are desk-bound for a living. We’re aware that it can be tough achieving your recommended 1 hour of exercising. But what would you say if we told you that we can resolve all that inactivity and help you become more active – whilst being sat down?
With the Pedal Exerciser, you are able to keep your legs moving when you’re sat at the desk at work or reading a book on the sofa. Sitting down for long periods in the day can cause poor circulation in the lower body; do you often have swollen feet after a long day at work? Are your feet continuously cold regardless of how many socks you’ve put on? These are signs of poor circulation that you ought to focus on.
The convenient portable pedal exerciser is lightweight, making it easy for you to carry it to work or to use it around the home. It’s a great machine to help relieve feet from swelling and to promote healthy blood flow; especially for those who have limited mobility and want to do some mild exercise whilst sitting down. It can even aid in helping someone recovering from an injury or surgery by using the pedal exerciser to slowly build strength in their legs throughout their rehabilitation process. You can also use the exercise equipment to train your arms and shoulders; just simply place it on a table and work those arms!
The portable pedal exerciser is made from chrome polished stainless steel and is very durable but light enough that it’s easy to move around. The pedals are made from robust plastic with Velcro stirrups, and have an adjustable knob to change the resistance if you want to give yourself a bit of a challenge.
What have you got to lose? Change your sitting down habits and strengthen your body and mind with the help of the pedal exerciser.
Why you need to avoid sitting down still for long periods of time
It may not be that obvious, but sitting down for up to 19 hours a day is slowly but surely taking effect; without us being aware of it!
Every hour we spend sitting down adds up, and can eventually cause serious disadvantages to your health, exposing you to health conditions such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, obesity/overweight, muscle difficulties, some types of cancer and even depression.
Even if you do find that you are sat down for long periods of the day; keeping those legs moving with the pedal exerciser can be beneficial for you, not just physically but mentally too. Exercising frequently will keep your brain focussed because of the oxygen that is being pumped into your brain and increasing your heart rate, by doing this your brain releases hormones that will aid in your mental development and promote a healthy growth.
Endorphins are released after a workout; these chemicals aid in triggering emotions and feelings of positivity that help you feel good and boost your self-esteem, avoiding feelings such as stress and anxiety, reducing the risk of depression and promoting a healthier sleeping pattern.
Keep active at home and in the office with the convenient Pedal Exerciser; we’re sure you’ll notice a difference.

- it could be the next BIG thing! Who knows? Review by B42
It helps me to keep moving through out the day, but it also stops me crossing my legs which is really bad both for posture and circulation.
The Boss came in today and asked me about it and he says he's like to try one too - it could be the next BIG thing! Who knows?
Works for me. (Posted on 9 March 2015)
- Good Review by Betty Grainger
I can use it while reading too and also if I am playing bingo on-line. I just go into automatic and I found that I had done 25 minutes the other evening - its been a lot of years since i cycled for 25 minutes I can tell you.
Have recommended this to my neighbour who is also housebound. (Posted on 9 January 2015)
As the item is one solid piece it would not be possible to fold this down to be able to take on holiday with you.
I would perhaps have a look at the item below, this is smaller and may be more suitable for your needs if you are travelling:
