Rated 5 out of 5 by Lynn60 from All it was advertised as ! Bought as I have MS and have limited leg and arm mobility and cannot exercise easily but need to do something to get fit and to try keep active and moving. So far, it’s all I hoped for and I’m enjoying being able to do something that may result in better health and fitness. I’m definitely feeling more energised since using the bike.

Home gyms are great, but the challenge is finding a place to put them. There’s no getting around the fact that workout equipment takes up a lot of space and if you don’t have an extra room or basement, your home gym might be limited to a kettlebell and a yoga mat.

If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that we never really appreciated access to an entire gym of workout equipment for one low monthly fee. We’ve upgraded our home gym as much as possible, but it still feels like we don’t have enough space to tackle every aspect of our pre-2020 workout. That’s where the PIVOT Bed comes in. The PIVOT Bed is a pseudo-Murphy bed that folds up against the wall to become a fully functional home gym. Gas struts help you lift the bed into place before locking the stable and self-supporting device into vertical position. Once it’s […]
