Eliptical desk brings a work-out to your office
If you have a desk job you know how hard it is to squeeze exercise into your working day. So, if you're a telecommuter and work from home (or work in a very relaxed office) then you might want to try the Elliptical Machine Office Desk from Hammacher Schlemmer.
It's a desk specially designed to be used in conjunction with a standard elliptical machine and according to the website, lets you burn around 4,000 calories per working week. It's a great idea and would certainly get people moving, but would you really be able to concentrate on your actual work as you're also trying to focus on a rather sweaty work-out? The desk retails at $8,000 from Hammacher Schlemmer so although it may be an interesting concept, squeezing in a jog during your lunch break would probably make much more financial sense.
