Hammacher Schlemmer Offers $8K Elliptical Workout Office Desk

I like my job most days, I don’t have to wear pants, I can get all the drinks and snacks I want, and I don’t have to worry that someone will catch me watching the occasional YouTube video on the job. The downside is I have a crazy schedule and can’t find much time to do anything away from my desk during the day. I bet that many people with “normal” office jobs are the same way. Hammacher Schlemmer has a weird desk that uses exercise technology to let you stay in shape while chained to your desk.

Workout Desk

The product is called the Elliptical Machine Office Desk. The desk includes a semi-recumbent elliptical machine with electronic resistance control. The little screen with the curved top you see on the left in the photos is the control panel for that exercise gear. It will operate at slow speeds so you can concentrate and the screen keeps up with the RPM, calories burned, and distance ridden for up to 30 different people.

Workout Desk

The desk is cool too with a height adjustment to accommodate people up to 6’9″ and fit that elliptical underneath. It also has a rail system for mounting your computer LCD. The big downside is that the desk and exercise gear costs $8,000 (USD) plus a $450 shipping fee. The upside is that for those of us that are lazy the price is yet another excuse to skip exercising.
