About this book
Escape Your Desk Sentence!Dr. James Levine, one of the country’s top specialists in obesity, says America suffers from “sitting disease.” We spend nearly ten to fifteen hours of our day sitting–in cars, at our desks, and in front of the television. The age of electronics and the Internet has robbed us of the chance to burn up to 1,500 to 2,000 calories per day, leaving Americans less active (and much heavier) than we were thirty years ago. We are facing a human energy crisis.What you need, according to this doctor’s orders, is to get moving, or nonexercise activity thermogenesis (NEAT). NEAT is as simple as standing, turning, and bending. Research proves that daily NEAT activity burns more calories than a half hour running on the treadmill. Just by the very act of standing and moving, you can boost your metabolism, lower your blood pressure, and increase your mental clarity. It’s about using your body as it was meant to be used. Move a Little, Lose a Lot gives you literal step-by-step instructions for small changes that equal radical results:• Give at the office–burn 2,100 calories a week just by changing your daily work routine.• Hey, Einstein–just like the scientist who thought up his most famous theory while riding his bike, you can increase production of new brain neurons in as little as three hours.• Tired of being tired–reduce fatigue by 65 percent with low-intensity NEAT workouts.• Don’t forget–an Italian study showed active men and women were 30 percent less likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease.From the Hardcover edition.

    Great for a short, quick, cheap exercise

    0 4/5 Rain "Music & Culture Lover" (Virginia, USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: Stamina 15-0120 InStride Cycle XL (Sports) I bought this thing because I wanted something easy to put together, cheap, and where I can use it while watching TV. This has been perfect for that! It's been 2 months, and I've had many days where I'll take this little thing out, turn on the TV, and just go. When I'm done 30 minutes later, I'll put it away in my closet easily. I've even added some 5 lbs. dumbbells for assistance.I will totally acknowledge that......if you're looking for a vigorous workout, this won't do it....if you're looking for all-inclusive sports equipment, this isn't it....if you're looking for something that'll count your calories or time for you, this won't do it. (It comes with a timer, but it's nothing special.)...if you're looking for something to replace your daily workout, this isn't it.However, if you're looking for a cheap option that will complement your regular exercise routine while sitting, this is a great option. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews&nbsp; Was this review helpful to you?&nbsp;, December 30, 2007

    Fine if you're Deaf

    0 2/5 A.P. - See all my reviews This review is from: Stamina 15-0120 InStride Cycle XL (Sports) You can use this thing for about 30 minutes before it gets too hot and starts to squeak horribly. You can tell it's from overheating because the pedal arms get too hot to touch! We have two of them bought from amazon and we took them apart to see if we could lubricate the mechanism (not easy to do) but with wd40 and lithium grease it still squeaks like you're strangling a goose. The manufacturer has a laughable return policy requiring original packaging, packing slips, paid shipping and mandatory insurance which makes it not worth it to try to return and therefore not worth buying if you are worried about the noise. OTHER than all that, it works fine. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews&nbsp; Was this review helpful to you?&nbsp;, November 17, 2007

    Exactly what I was hoping it would be

    This little exerciser fits right under my desk, and when it's on its mat, it does not move around on the floor (wood) at all. The noise level is pretty quiet--just a low-level ssssss, but I work at home, so I'm not sure how it would play in a cubicle setting. It was easy to assemble.I, too, found that the tension setting doesn't make much of a difference, although it got a little tighter with more turns that I would have thought necessary. But sitting here pedaling away for a half hour felt like it lasted about a minute as I surfed and worked and allegedly--according to the calorie counter--burned about 250 calories. I did break a sweat in my air-conditioned livingroom. I expect to find myself pedaling off and on all day without even thinking about it, and I don't have to leave my work and carve out a half hour or an hour to get in a bit of daily exercise. That leaves me all the more time for my kids and family time when everyone gets home from school and work... 5/5 Biogrrl (Denver) - See all my reviews This little exerciser fits right under my desk, and when it's on its mat, it does not move around on the floor (wood) at all.

    Looks great, needs more tension

    Great Way to Get in Computer Time & Combat Diabetes

    I've seen a lot of people mention problems with the tension on this and there is an easy fix for that. When you first get the unit the band that controls the tensions tends to stretch out a bit, after the initial stretch if you make this adjustment you shouldn't have to do it again for a very long time. There are 2 screws on the sides below each pedal, remove these and the plastic piece slides out from below the pedal. There is one screw in the center of the tension control nob, remove that then pull the nob off (it may be a little tight as mine was). Remove the calorie meter and there should be a button release to detatch the cable. Now the whole cowling of the unit should slide right off. Turn the tension knob as far out as it will go (counterclockwise). You will find a strap and latch, very similar to ones you might find on a backpack. Release the latch, and pull the strap till it is tight, then close the latch. Now reverse the process to re-assemble and you should be good... 4/5 Andrew C.

    Wonderful product, easy to stay motivated!

    I bought this mini-elliptical after reading all the reviews on this and other similar products. I bought this item for three main reasons:1 - Low price2 - Small size3 - PortabilityI like the elliptical movement because I have bad ankles, and treadmills and steppers hurt me after a short time working out. I don't have room for a full-size elliptical machine in my house, and this turned out to be the perfect size. Plus, it's small size made it easy to move around the house to be where I wanted to use it. I like to work out while watching TV to keep my mind elsewhere and work out longer, and I can pull this machine (about 25lbs) in front of the TV in the living room to watch TV with family (yes, they laugh at me, but it's worth it), and then pull in front of my bed in the bedroom to watch a chick flick that no one else wants to watch. I even put my elliptical in front of my computer to watch Netflix movies online! It's easy to carry around.Another great... 5/5 N.

    good but not perfect

    This is a fairly compact, noiseless and easy-to-assemble machine and it does its job.The counter is placed out of the way, between your ankles, so you don't have to stare at it while exercising (unless you exercise while staring at your ankles) which to me is a plus. Also, the counter only accounts for the actual time you spend exercising, so if you go get a drink of water and return, it self-pauses, which is cool.The machine does occasionally rock slightly from side-to-side during use which I'd imagine could cause injury. Also, the machine doesn't glide easily during strides as it does on a regular elliptical; it occasionally jolts. This can be jarring, especially if you're not used to the unusually short strides on this machine. I recommend using this while you have something to stabilize yourself if this happens (I use it in a doorway)Not the best machine out there, but it's certainly affordable and easy to use, a great purchase for a small... 3/5 sgme - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    15-Day Review

    Normally, I take reviews with a grain of salt. I work in advertising, so I'm well aware that companies often hire freelancers to write positive reviews for their products in order to improve sales. That said, I figured I would write an honest review after using this elliptical trainer for about half-a-month.I received the trainer on about the 20th of September and have been using it at least every other day since. It was extremely easy to piece together (I have put together a Bowflex Treadclimber in the past, as well as a StairMaster so this was practically nothing at five parts) and even easier to use. However, the stride IS significantly shorter than that of a standard health club elliptical--after about ten minutes of using the trainer, though, I didn't even notice the short stride.I bought the trainer as an alternative to running or biking outside since the cold weather is settling in and I wanted no excuses when it came to maintaining some sort of exercise... 4/5 jneeni (Long Island, NY) - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    One heck of a quiet workout!

    As an apartment dweller I was so pleased to find this (thanks Sky Mall magazine for the idea, but bigger thanks to Amazon for having it at a great price with super saver shipping too). To be honest I was skeptical as to how sturdy this product would be and as to how much of a workout it would give. I have not been disappointed at all and in fact more pleased than I thought I'd be.It was easy to assemble, but must say that the instruction manual gives WAY too many diagrams of parts, etc. that aren't needed to assemble it and makes it look more intimidating to assemble than it really is. It comes with a wrench and Phillips head screwdriver/Allen wrench and that's all you'll need. It took me about 45 minutes to assemble, but had the instructions been simpler it would have been more like 30 minutes. I keep the tools handy and check the assembly points from time to time and give it a little snugging up, but it's not as if the bolts are really loose. It's just me being a... 5/5 K.

    Good Product, Questionable Build Quality...

    I have used this for a couple of days now and I believe there wont be any more surprises.Pros:Functions great - is a great exercise bike, without the front handle bar i can watch TV, play a game, or use a tray table to use a laptop.Quiet - i can use this right next to the wife while watching TV, its practically silent.Small - Folds into smallest footprint I've seen on a bike.Sturdy - pieces went together firmly and the whole thing feels stout (I am 245lbs and it doesn't feel flimsy under me)Cons:Material quality - while everything went together well, and the frame is well made, the plastic housing on the gearbox came cracked in a few spots and the back has stitching coming loose.Awkward moving - When folded up, it can be a bit awkward to move around.On the whole I am pleased with the unit, and it would get a perfect score if not for the minor blemishes in the cheap parts.
