Are treadmill desks and cycle desks harder for data scientists to use than general consultants? I want one but I would have to forgo the second monitor and I wonder if it will be harder for me because I’m coding sometimes, which might need more control than when writing email. I might be overthinking this though.

I would think it may be a bit harder, but you’re not going to be exercising the whole day, so as long as you can time that for an hour or three while you’re on calls or catching up on email then you might be overthinking it

Which desks are you looking at?

Flexispot Deskcise, terrible name but simple to move around my home which helps because I’m also watching my son at home.
Someone without kids or solid childcare might choose their under desk bike and use a normal wide desk.
