Office gym combo desk ideas
Murphy wall desk
The king of space saving desks, the fold out Murphy desk literally disappears into the wall when not in use.
- Murphy Fold Out Desk
Although they come in a variety of sizes, a small Murphy desk will take up about as much room as a fairly large bathroom medicine cabinet. It’s a great choice on a budget, or if you are working on a laptop or notebook and don’t need a lot of space for a personal home computer, printer and a bunch of other hardware.
If you want to get your desk area up against the wall and maximize floor space you can’t really go wrong with a sturdy ladder desk.

- Wall Ladder Desk
Rotating office desk
Once again, desks that can be rotated out of the center of the room will no doubt be a godsend if you’re stuck for floorspace.

Is a ball chair ergonomic?
Add to this the fact that cheap balls that are not made form burst proof material and I can’t really bring myself to recommend using a gym ball instead of office chair.
If you do decide to use one anyway due to budgeting and/or space concerns (or you just want a ball for exercise purposes anyway,) don’t consider it a long-term solution. I personally think it’s best if only used for short seating periods, not as a replacement for a real office chair which is designed with extended seating periods in mind.
Even then, you should think about getting up every half hour or so to give yourself a break from sitting, which is certainly another argument for the benefits of a standing desk.

Shiatsu massage chair pad
Like to clear your mind, meditate or just have a nice back rub before you begin, or finish work? Then you’ll probably find this Homedics shiatsu massage chair pad an amazing addition.
To be fair, it’s not exactly designed for sitting on for extended periods, so don’t get that idea. It sits nicely on your existing office chair (or even a kitchen chair) and straps hold it in place.
If you have a spare chair you can leave this on, it’s ideal, but…
It’s a little on the expensive side for this particular model, but you can of course go for one of the cheaper models.
Buy an office chair that actually has massage and heating capability built in.
Luxury shiatsu massage chair
If you are shopping for a new office chair then why not get one with massage ability?
Surprisingly, there is not much difference between this full-on office chair and a model that sits on an existing chair like the Homedics one above. In fact, if you measure up the prices on the two particular models we like then this is the best shiatsu massage chair to get. It’s actually CHEAPER than the massage chair pad.
Ergonomic home office chair
If ergonomics is your main concern, you can’t really go wrong with a Serta back in motion office chair in chocolate bonded leather. Also available in:
- Black bonded leather
- Ivory bonded leather
- Old chestnut bonded leather
- Gray bonded leather
- Dark gray refresh fabric
- Light gray refresh fabric
This is the best office chair under 300 dollars that we know of. There are better models out there but expect to pay upwards of double the cost of this one.
If you are really looking to pimp out your home office gym combo, then one of these babies is going to look great.
