I’m so happy that I got to meet one of my heroes, Nilofer Merchant, at Live Talks LA this week. In her new book, “The Power of Onlyness: Make Your Wild Ideas Mighty Enough to Dent the World,” Nilofer shares how we can all use our own ideas to make a valuable contribution by capitalizing on “onlyness” – our unique knowledge and experiences.
I was actually at TED for Nilofer’s TED Talk, “Got a Meeting? Take a Walk.” Her Talk ignited “Sitting is the new Smoking” and helped spark my inspiration for FlyteBike™. I very much appreciate Nilofer’s stance on “walk and talks” instead of just sitting there at what I call “bored” meetings. The research shows that “walk and talks” are more collaborative, creative and productive than traditional board meetings around a table. Check out her TED Talk here:
Mayo Clinic’s Dr. James Levine shares his research about active workplaces in his book “Get Up.” These active workplaces include built in walking tracks around the work space, provide onsite exercise solutions and healthy food choices for employees. Dr. Levine’s research shows that healthier employees lose weight, have more energy and are more productive. Here’s a pleasant surprise – sales at all active workplaces increased at least 8 fold!
Dr. Levine is also the inventor of the treadmill desk and I often refer to FlyteBike™ as the treadmill desk’s affordable, portable little sister you can take with you anywhere. We are so excited that FlyteBike™ is providing an easy, convenient and affordable solution for workplaces everywhere. FlyteBike™ is also NEAT™ certified. NEAT™ stands for the science of Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis, developed by Mayo Clinic!
Nilofer and her interviewer, Justine Musk, shared a metaphor that using our unique gifts for good is like having a light bulb above our heads. Amazing, but true – this is the photo of us after her talk. Check out the giant light above my head!
Thanks to all of the launch support we’ve received, FlyteBike™ is taking off!
We are so grateful for our successful Indiegogo Crowdfunding Campaign – we achieved 114% of our funding goal! Thanks to our supporters, FlyteBikers everywhere will burn calories, get energized and feel great anywhere they sit!
Now that our campaign is complete, you can still order FlyteBike™ InDemand at Indiegogo or on our website at FlyteBike.com.
Did you know that you burn 10 calories every minute you FlyteBike™? That’s 300 calories in just 30 minutes!
We are elated by the enthusiastic and encouraging reception we’ve received the past couple of weeks. We unveiled FlyteBike™ to the public for the first time at the Crowd Invest Summit and TechDay LA to rave reviews. Check out this interview with SNN:

Thank you for your enthusiastic support of FlyteBike™ Portable Pedals! It means more than you could imagine. We have raised 107% of our crowdfunding goal at Indiegogo already and we are only halfway through the 30-day campaign.
This is so exciting! We have raised the rest of the funds we needed to complete our first round of manufacturing. We are continuing our crowdfunding campaign for the remainder of the month-long raise. All additional orders will help us with marketing FlyteBike to other people who sit for hours every day without an easy solution to their sedentary lifestyles.
Many of the success stories at Indiegogo hire Indiegogo marketing company partners. We received quotes between $20,000 to $25,000 for their assistance with our $20,000 crowdfunding raise. 🙂 Our little engine that could chugged up the hill with with our own women power the whole way. I am forever grateful to several of our investors and our CMO who tirelessly devoted themselves to FlyteBike’s successful crowdfunding campaign launch. God bless you, FlyteBike angels!
Witnessing my beloved dog and constant companion of 12 years, Faith Charity Palmer, leave this earth as we prepared to launch our crowdfunding campaign shook my world. I miss Faith with my entire being.

FlyteBike™ is also the perfect exercise solution for seniors. It’s all about the blood flow at any age. Age related diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, cancer, strokes, osteoporosis and deep vein thrombosis (blood clots) are exacerbated by just sitting there.
Seniors tell us why they love FlyteBike™ compared to other stationary pedals:
It comes fully assembled unlike everyone else’s.
It’s only 3.5 pounds and made of a Patent Pending lightweight aluminum instead of heavy steel.
It’s easy to use: unzip the bag, unfold your FlyteBike™ and start pedaling.
It’s easy to store so you won’t trip on it. After pedaling, you just fold your FlyteBike and hang or stack it in the closet in its bag – it’s that simple!
FlyteBike™ is NEAT® certified. NEAT® stands for the science of Non-Exercise Activity Thermogenesis, developed by Mayo Clinic. (My mom literally trusts Mayo Clinic with her life!)
We’d love you to join our party at Indiegogo and check out our one-of-a-kind perks HERE.

Now you can lose weight, lift your mood and boost productivity by gently pedaling at your desk, at home, or anywhere. Since it’s all about the blood flow, FlyteBike™ works on the same principle as the Treadmill Desk. Users gently stroll while they type at their computer or speak on the phone. No one runs or race walks while they work. Yet, the results are tremendous.
Since the average Treadmill Desk costs about $4,000 and takes up the same amount of office space as a regular treadmill, they are usually purchased for C-Suite managers or home offices. FlyteBike™ is the Treadmill Desk’s affordable, portable little sister you can take with you anywhere.
