Staying active throughout the day is tough, especially if you spend most of your time in an office or classroom. If only there was a way to get quality exercise at your desk when you’re working on a computer or studying for a mid-term exam.

Enter the Cubii Jr. This is a silent and compact elliptical that goes under your desk, so you could use it while you’re seated in your office or dorm room. The Cubii Jr. is now on sale for $185, or $64 off its list price on Amazon. Just in time for back-to-school savings!

In addition, this is the lowest price on this product we’ve ever seen. It’s also one of the online retailer’s “Deals of the Day,” so this sales price is only good for a very limited time.

“Great product. The movement is easy to do while working at a computer and I didn't bang my legs on my desk,” wrote a very happy Amazon reviewer. “I burned over 500 calories using it off and on throughout the day without realizing I was doing exercise. I did break a little sweat, but not enough to stop using in an office environment.”

How it works

The Cubii Jr. might be small, but it can make a big difference on your overall health if you spend most of your day sitting down. It’s designed to deliver eight levels of resistance with very little impact to your joints, so you can increase your strength and activity throughout your work or school day.

“I’m stuck at a desk all day, and my hips and knees lock up if I stay still too long. This helps me keep my joints active, even while I’m sitting to work,” one physically active Amazon reviewer added.

The under-desk elliptical is built for a smooth and silent workout at your desk that’s very low impact, so you can keep working or studying. Don’t worry about being distracted while you work either. The Cubii Jr. is designed with multitasking in mind because it delivers a low-impact workout, while it can also keep track of all your calories burned, strides, distance, and revolutions per minute in real-time.

“Completely silent and smooth,” a delighted Amazon reviewer wrote. “I hardly notice the machine or my exercise. Your legs just become automated and before you know it you've burned 100 calories. I use it at home and watch movies or play video games. At tense parts, kicking up the cycles a little makes you feel physically part of the action. Super fun.”

Bottom line

If you’re looking for a way to stay active while sitting at a desk, then the Cubii Jr. is a good pick. It’s perfectly suitable for professionals working on spreadsheets in an office or students returning back to school studying in a dorm room. It’s on sale until the end of the day, so act fast and buy now. This sales price won’t last forever.
