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

A few years ago, I purchased an exercise bike with a small desk large enough for a laptop.

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!

Addaday BioZoom Edge Review: Bluetooth Enabled to Maximize Your Massage Gun Experience

They say you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. Likewise, you shouldn’t judge a massage gun by the initial impression. I was skeptical about the Addaday BioZoom Edge massage gun when I first unboxed it; the Edge was bulky and heavy compared to some of the more svelte massagers I’ve encountered in the past, and I didn’t think it would stack up given how large it was. That skepticism was before I gave it a full test run, though! Will Bluetooth and a powerful motor overcome the bulkiness? Read on to find out!
