Reduce your leg fatigue with a standing desk mat: Video Reviews Inside

by Nov 9, 2017Health

Are you new to standing desks and feel leg fatigue at the end of the day?
Did you know that you shouldn't stand all day anyway, and sit-stand desks are ideal??

BONUS! A sit-stand desk review from FitDesk.

I've used a standing desk for so long, only medical carts came up when I searched online. I love my medical cart/standing desk, and while most people get tired or feel pain from standing all day, I hurt when I sit too long. That being said, Sit-to-Stand or variable height desks are an excellent way to change your body positions, and if I wanted to replace my current set-up, I'd buy one that adjusts.

My first review is of the Butterfly Ergonomic Non-Flat Anti-Fatigue Standing Desk Mat which retails for $49.97 on Amazon. More detail in the video, but in a nutshell

Pros: comfy, variable places to put feet

Cons: It's shaped like a butterfly. I like butterflies, but it's a bit much. My husband said if it didn't have the word butterfly, he could at least pretend it was a moth 🙂

We now have this in our kitchen at the sink, because I replaced it with the second review.

Bonus review if you're looking for a sit-to-stand desk. I had the pleasure of reviewing this desk by the FitDesk company that I tested out on my screened-in porch and begrudgingly gave it to my husband to use in his studio because I already have a standing desk, BikeDesk, and a portable standing desk! Go to to purchase. Use the code MARCEYFREEMAT to receive a free mat on all bikes, under desk products and desks!

Pros: Super easy to assemble, sleek, simple to adjust and affordable. Love the cord control. #CordlessIsNeverCordless

Cons: None, if a minimalist desk is what you need. It looks like I have to push it down hard in the video, but it's because there is nothing on it. As soon as I have anything, even a laptop, the weight makes it much easier.
