The Lowdown

The Flexispot Sit2Go 2-in-1 Fitness Chair is a unique product. It combines a decent office chair with a mid-level stationary bike to give you a comfortable way to be productive and have the option to get your heart rate up a bit regardless of what you are working on. Flexispot describes it as “the ideal way to ease into a fitness routine is with light cycling that can be done anytime and anywhere, even while enjoying other work and leisure activities.” I agree.

Flexispot Sit2Go 2-in-1 Fitness Chair Review: Lets You Stay Productive and Keep in Shape Listen to this article

A few years ago, I purchased an exercise bike with a small desk large enough for a laptop. The exercise bike was uncomfortable, and the desk surface was too small; I never liked it enough to use it regularly. Recently, I’ve been trying out the Flexispot Sit2Go 2-in-1 Fitness Chair. The Sit2Go is a desk chair and exercise bike combination that works with your current standing desk; it’s turned out to be an excellent option for staying active even as I sit writing!

The Flexispot Sit2Go 2-in-1 Fitness Chair is available in either black or white; fully assembled, it measures 33.6” long by 20.3″ wide by 37″ to 46.3″ tall with an adjustable seat height from 22.4″ to 31.5″. The Sit2Go will work well with height adjustable standing desks, but due to needed knee clearance when turning the pedals, it will likely be too tall to use while working at a standard office desk.

The Sit2Go arrives in a large, heavy box. Inside the box were the central body of the Sit2Go, two pedals, the seat, and the mesh backrest. It required just a few minutes of attention before it was ready to be used.

The compact, streamlined body sits on smooth-rolling casters, making it easy to move from room to room and from indoors to outdoors.

The central body of the Flexispot Sit2Go 2-in-1 Fitness Chair houses the electronics and the pedaling mechanism. When it arrives, it has the rear legs tucked underneath. To use the Sit2Go, you first need to extend the rear legs fully. This gives the Sit2Go the stability it needs for you to work and ride for hours at a time safely.

The seat, seatback, and pedals all take a bit more effort, but the Sit2Go was fully assembled and ready for use within a few minutes. You can check out the installation steps here.

It makes sense to first look at the Flexispot Sit2Go 2-in-1 Fitness Chair from two different perspectives: as a desk chair and as a fitness bike.

The Flexispot Sit2Go 2-in-1 Fitness Chair as a Desk Chair

My previous “fitness desk” was more exercise bike than a desk chair. That meant it wasn’t comfortable to use except when specifically trying to get some exercise; it certainly wasn’t the right place to sit and write reviews or sermons. In addition, the small desk surface was only suitable for a laptop. As someone who works with a dual monitor system, this was a bit too limiting for me.

The Flexispot Sit2Go 2-in-1 Fitness Chair is a comfortable desk chair alternative that you can use all the time — whether you are pedaling or not. The seat is wide enough and has enough padding to be comfortable. The concave section on each side of the seat is perfectly shaped for each of my buns and spreads the pressure out quite evenly.

On the left side, just beneath the seat, you’ll find a plastic lever that allows you to adjust its height; you can adjust this even when seated. The seat can support up to 220 pounds, and as I previously mentioned, the seat’s height can be adjusted from 22.4″ to 31.5″.

The back of the Sit2Go has a mesh fabric that breathes and has enough stretch/flexibility to support you comfortably. While there’s no lumbar support, the seat still does a decent job of offering a comfortable place to sit.

To be clear, the Flexispot Sit2Go 2-in-1 Fitness Chair is not as comfortable as my traditional mesh desk chair, but it is comfortable enough to use all the time as a regular chair or, if you are like me, for part of the day each day.

Side note: I have pedaled 8.01 miles so far while writing this review.

When sitting on the Flexispot Sit2Go 2-in-1 Fitness Chair, you have complete access to the stationary bike’s controls. The knob for adjusting the pedals’ resistance sits between your legs. In front of the knob, there is a digital readout and a button to select the display mode. You can choose to see how far you have gone, how many calories you have burned, and more.

The Sit2Go looks and functions like a mid-range stationary bike. When pedaling, it is silent, and the motion is smooth. That makes the Sit2Go comfortable to pedal while doing other things, like writing this review.

Of course, the real benefit of the Flexispot Sit2Go 2-in-1 Fitness Chair is that it isn’t merely a desk chair or simply a stationary bike; it is both, and that is a winning combination.

For example, I moved the Sit2Go under my standing desk at home this morning, raised the desk to the appropriate height, and started working as I would any other day.

But as I’m typing this, I am also pedaling and, in the process, getting a bit of exercise. The pandemic has forced many of us into a more sedentary lifestyle, but Sit2Go can help with that. I can’t say enough good things about being able to work from home and move my body at the same time.

Flexispot lists some of the reasons to consider a Sit2Go, including:

  • For Improving Productivity: Cycles quietly and smoothly so it won’t disturb your work or your co-workers. Keeps the mind alert and active during work and creative activities.
  • For Saving Time: Start your fitness journey off right with no excuses — it is always underfoot. It makes it easy to achieve your health and wellness goals.
  • For Staying Healthy: Seamlessly combine sit and fitness while building a better body. Ensures your exercise equipment doesn’t sit for months unused.

Honestly, my biggest knock on this product is the name. Come on; you have to admit that if you heard the word “Sit2Go” without any context, you might think it was a new product from the makers of the SquattyPotty.

The Flexispot Sit2Go 2-in-1 Fitness Chair is a unique product.

Flexispot describes it as “the ideal way to ease into a fitness routine is with light cycling that can be done anytime and anywhere, even while enjoying other work and leisure activities.” I agree.

Now that I’m using the Sit2Go, I’ll be giving away the old stationary bike/desk combo. It wasn’t as convenient, and as a result, I never used it. This review has already led to me “biking” over nine miles — that’s more than I ever put on that old bike and desk combo in a single seating. The reasons I like this solution better are simple: the Flexispot Sit2Go 2-in-1 Fitness Chair lets me use my own desk, offers my back and butt some support, and is absolutely silent.

I love using the Flexispot Sit2Go 2-in-1 Fitness Chair to get in a bit of exercise while I work. If I weren’t worried that it would draw too much attention, I would consider getting a second one for my office at the synagogue. Because it is so unique and distracting if you aren’t used to seeing one, I probably won’t get one to use at work, but I will be using the Sit2Go at my home desk. I’m a fan, and I think that you’ll be a fan too.

Whether you want to shed some of your pandemic pounds or want to make sure you stay in shape as the cold weather arrives, you’ll definitely want to check out the Flexispot Sit2Go Fitness Chair.

The Flexispot Sit2Go 2-in-1 Fitness Chair retails for $399.99 (currently on sale for $279.99); it is available directly from the manufacturer.
