Staying active throughout the day is tough, especially if you spend most of your time in an office or at home. If only there was a way to get quality exercise at your desk when you’re working on a computer or sitting on your couch!
Enter the Cubii, Jr., a silent and compact elliptical that goes under your desk, so you could use it while you’re seated in your office or at home. The Cubii, Jr. is on sale for $172, or $77 off its list price on Amazon.
In addition, this is the lowest price on this product we’ve ever seen. It’s also one of the online retailer’s daily deals, so the price will skyrocket tomorrow!
“I wanted to wait until my home office was set up before I wrote this review,” wrote a delighted Amazon reviewer. “Today is the first day that I am using my Cubii and I have to say that my legs are already getting a workout. I have my Fitbit tracker shoved into my sock and since 8:00am I have already peddled 5785 steps. The machine is super quiet and I am alone in my office so I would hear the squeaking.”

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 day or even while watching TV at home.
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. No need to worry about being a distraction to your coworkers, either — it’s so quiet, some reviewers even said they use it while on conference calls!
“My old machine was very noisy,” continued the reviewer. “If my legs ache at the lowest setting, I am kind of afraid to turn it up until I give my legs a few days to adjust. My goal is 10,000 steps a day. I really love this little machine. What I noticed first is that you peddle rather than push out (like my old machine.) I have a standing desk and it is very easy to adjust the height so my knees do not hit the keyboard tray.”
The machine is small but mighty: It keeps track of calories burned, strides, distance, and revolutions per minute in real-time. It even features Bluetooth connectivity, so you can keep track of your progress and set goals with the Cubii smartphone app or sync it with a Fitbit.
Another satisfied shopper added, “My MIL broke her femur in October and we’ve been looking for the perfect piece of exercise equipment and finally found it in the Cubii Jr on Amazon. Thanks Cubii!”
If you’re looking for a way to stay active without leaving your desk, then the Cubii, Jr. is a great pick. It’s a must-have for professionals and even just lounging at home. One reviewer added, “This thing is absolutely awesome. Quiet. Expensive as hell but worth every penny.”
Both are on sale until the end of the day, so be sure to get yours before they sell out!
