You read correctly! We at Coursenvy have found the PERFECT way to multi-task at the office. We are using our new Stamina InMotion Compact Strider under our standing desk! I like to compare this workout to getting on a full-size elliptical machine at the gym. You can turn up the resistance of the elliptical by simply turning a knob. Check out the unboxing photos of the Stamina InMotion elliptical… just out of the box (pre-constructed) and after being bolted together (I placed the stepper in front of my office standing desk: https://www.coursenvy.com/imovr-desk-review-the-best-standing-desk-converter/)
The 5-Minute Desk Workout
I am not on the Stamina InMotion Compact Strider all day… rather for just 5 minutes per hour; coining what my employees call “The 5-Minute Desk Workout”! At the top of every hour, I just grab the handle of the strider device and set it in front of my standing desk. Then one foot at a time I step on board! I like to feel the burn, so I crank the resistance knob way up and then use the two cords/resistance bands for bicep curls. These 5-minutes are great for catching up on reading emails, watching videos, etc. Typing and “striding” isn’t the easiest, but not too hard after some practice. The first few times I felt like I was patting my head and rubbing my belly :)
I did find that SITTING was way easier. So if you sit all day, I see now reason why you couldn’t use this ALL DAY LONG!
In this fast and busy lifestyle, it has become really difficult to find time for our own health and fitness. On the other hand, it has become very important for us to eat healthy, workout regularly and maintain a fit life. So, how does one strike a balance between the two? Well, it is critical to find time to exercise or indulge in any physical activity regularly. So is joining a gym or investing in a home gym the only option? Not anymore! The InMotion Compact Strider is here to the rescue. This machine offers people a convenient way to workout without joining a gym or going outside for a walk… this piece of fitness equipment is all you need to stay fit!

Being a fitness addict, I had tried a range of workout from home fitness equipment but the workout was never satisfying until I discovered the InMotion Compact Strider. Since I got this cardio elliptical equipment, there has been no looking back on my fitness goals. The InMotion Compact Strider has made it really easy to perform a whole body workout at home. If I don’t get time at home, I simply carry the InMotion Compact Strider to my office. It easily fits under my desk and I can use it while doing my office chores. Working out while working has truly changed the concept of a workout for me!
The best part about this equipment is that it is best fit for apartments or small offices like ours. I don’t have to invest in any cumbersome, unattractive and floor space eating equipment anymore. The InMotion Compact Strider easily fits in my closet. I simply remove it when I want to workout and put it back once done. Accessible when I need it and out of my sight when I don’t! It is just as simple as that!
The casing of the InMotion Compact Strider is made from plastic, so the equipment is lightweight and easy to carry around. The heavy-duty sealed bearings bring durability to the strider. The pedals are non-slip and oversized to provide a better grip in standing or sitting position. Sometimes, when I am in the mood for a workout or have more time, I just use the cords for a quick upper body workout. These cords have rubber foam handles for better grip and adjustable straps to add a bit of resistance to the workout.
What I love about my InMotion Compact Strider is the versatility it offers me! I can plan my workout the way I want. The multifunction meter helps me keep track of my workout. From steps taken to calories burnt, the fitness meter helps me plan my workout goals. I don’t have to worry about disturbing my kids or neighbors while working out as the machine is really quiet.
Going to the gym has never been my interest as I prefer working out alone and at my convenience. The InMotion Compact Strider has offered me this flexibility and convenience. The machine helps me to get moving and burn some calories while toning my calves and working my glutes.
The one unbelievable thing about my InMotion Compact Strider is its pocket-friendly price. I have not come across any piece of fitness equipment that is so effective and budget-friendly (under $200). It is drastically cheaper compared to a full-sized elliptical or a treadmill. I have been using the InMotion Compact Strider for quite some time now but I have never faced any issues with its operations or maintenance. Plus, it’s easy to assemble and convenient to use, it does not add pressure or stress to knees and other joints. I don’t think I need anything more for a balanced, low to medium intensity workout.
InMotion Compact Strider is an excellent machine to remain active, no matter whether you are at home or office. Lightweight, sturdy build, and an excellent price, the InMotion Compact Strider is unlike any other fitness machines that I have come across. It is the only piece of equipment anyone would need in their home or office gym.
Don’t worry if your schedule does not allow you to go for a jog or hit the gym, make the most of your time at home or in the office with the Stamina InMotion Compact Strider.
