I requested a small under desk elliptical/bike for Christmas and my husband got it for me. It was the only one I thought 'might' fit under my desk... unfortunately... it's about 2 inches too high to use under the desk. The way our cubicles are designed, my desk can't be raised. It's pretty heavy, so repacking and returning online would have been a pain. It's back home now and I kinda use it watching TV... but unfortunately it's not getting any where near the use I had intended. If you opt to go this route... really research it first. I do love mine and it would have been perfect, if it fit.

LOL - I love SHEROLDS answer - she's smart like a fox.
Try to stand every once in awhile and do calf raises or other leg stretches, holding onto your chair. I sneak weight workouts in when ever possible, using my own resistance (no weights)
I worked in a large office building. I used to pick up my notebook and walk away from my desk as if I was going to a meeting. Then I would walk, take the stairs, and come back for a few minutes. No one ever questioned it because it always looked as if I were going to meet with a user or going to a meeting. It gets the blood circulating and helps relieve the tension in the shoulders. And you can think clearer.
