As working from home continues to gain popularity, so does the trend of working out at home. When the Covid-19 pandemic closed down offices in 2020, it also shuttered gym doors, prompting people to get creative with their home office and home gym spaces. Nowadays, there are compact fitness machines designed to seamlessly integrate into a WFH setup and offer calorie-torching workouts while you work: most popularly, a walking pad and an under-desk elliptical.
