Under Desk Exercise Equipment for Writers

Of the hundreds of posts here and on my Instagram, the ones that got—still get—the most attention are the posts that mention my under desk mini bike.

It’s so easy to get lost in writing, isn’t it? You sit at your desk and start writing and when you get up for a coffee/pee/snack break you’re stiff AF and feel like your legs are made of lead.

We should try to get up and move around regularly, but if you’re like me and lose track of time (and ignore your Fitbit reminders to move) while writing, then under-desk or desk-friendly exercise equipment is a game changer.

Now, you don’t need to go high-end when it comes to desk exercise equipment. My mini peddle bike was one of the most inexpensive ones on Amazon at the time (still is) and it’s still going strong 5 years later. It’s not fancy, but it keeps my legs moving while I writer without my having to think about it.

I’ve rounded up some of the most highly reviewed under desk exercise equipment for writers on Amazon and I’ve included a few options for each with varying budgets for those that can splurge and those that would rather not spend more than they have to.
