At Fitneff, we carefully select products that will allow you to stay productive while you integrate movement into workday. Many of us are faced with the same challenge every day – we need to get our work done, but studies continue to show that sedentary behaviour is bad for our health. At Fitneff, we believe that you can be active without sacrificing productivity.
The IntegrateTM Desk Pedals are extremely effective at allowing us to do just that. If you have to be seated, why not allow yourself to keep moving? This product allows us to make otherwise sedentary time healthier by working leg muscles, engaging core muscles and burning calories.
While seated, place the IntegrateTM Desk Pedals in front of you. Place the balls of your feet on the non-slip pedals and just start moving! The pedals work in both forward and reverse directions to target different muscle groups, and the adjustable tension controls allow you to increase or decrease resistance levels. The fluid motion is silent, and the monitor tracks strides per minute, total strides, use time, and calories burned.
The IntegrateTM Desk Pedals are designed to fit under your desk, so it is possible to use them while working on your computer. However, the truth is that they can be used in the office and in the home. Anytime you are seated, you can pedal!
We are extremely proud to share these examples of how IntegrateTM Desk Pedals have provided a solution to many different kinds of challenges:
So, if you have to be sitting, make the most of it with IntegrateTM Desk Pedals.

Spring if finally upon us! With the opening of the windows and doors, along with sunshine and fresh air, we are greeted with so many new opportunities to get active that don’t seem so apparent during the winter months. Getting outdoors takes much less preparation and effort. Being outdoors is pleasant and easy (at least for those of us who prefer warmer weather). The benefits of being active in spring go beyond just feeling good and being healthy, and might not be what you expect. Let’s take a look.
I had the honour of speaking with Olive Myhre the day after her 105th birthday. Olive has lived through events that most of us only read about in history books, including two World Wars, the introduction of the automobile, the invention of the computer, and man’s first steps on the moon. I was able to learn about her life and her perspective on health and happiness. Here is our interview.
