I have been wanting a standing desk for a while now. I spend LONG hours sitting in one position hunched over a computer. It is starting to take a toll on my health as I imagine it would for many folks. It causes neck and back pain, swollen legs and just overall fatigue from sitting there hour after hour.

About the FlexiSpot Classic Riser Workstation
I am loving the FlexiSpot Classic Riser Workstation for its functionality. It is easy to transition from sitting to standing with the simple press of a lever! It also has plenty of space for all your “work things” and can be used with, or without, a keyboard tray. I love this feature as most of the time I work on a laptop. I can easily slip the keyboard tray off and store it out of the way.
The FlexiSpot Workstation Allows Easy Transition
I love how easy it is to go from sitting to standing or back to sitting again. All it takes is a light squeeze of the hand bars. You can lower or raise the workstation with minimal effort even with the maximum load. When raising the fully-loaded desk (35 lbs is the maximum weight capacity), you need 13 lbs of force to lift it up and only 3 lbs to take it down.
The FlexiSpot Classic Riser Workstation Supports Better Posture
That little voice in your head from your mother to sit or stand up straight haunts your memory, right? The correct posture helps your overall wellbeing. Well, every detail of the FlexiSpot standing desk riser is designed to help you maintain a comfortable and ergonomically correct position – whether standing up or sitting down!
Deeper Work Surface
The FlexiSpot Classic Riser Workstation provides a more comfortable reading distance as well as more surface area. There is ample room for your monitor, laptop, tablet, paperwork, and more.
Attaching the Keyboard Tray
Attaching the keyboard tray is quick and easy. Simple unlock the tabs on both side and slide the tray ends into the slot. Lock the tabs and you’re done. It is simple as that.
The FlexiSpot Standing Desk has a Wider & Removable Keyboard Tray
You will love the depth of the keyboard tray. It offers plenty of space for a full-sized keyboard, mouse, and mousepad while also providing adequate room for healthy wrist positioning.
I love how the FlexiSpot rises and lowers vertically! This saves you valuable space in your workstation and offering better stabilization when raising and lowering. Other comparable desk risers extend outward when raising causing them to take up more room. My desk is old and not very wide, causing my desk riser to hang off slightly in the back. However, it is still very stable. Just keep in mind that you should always make sure of the stability.
If you get ready to sit and work, lowering the FlexiSpot Workstation is super easy! Simply press the lever and push down. Now, you can have a seat and keep right on working!
The FlexiSpot ClassicRiser Workstation – Heights and Measurements
The FlexiSpot ClassicRiser Workstation will fit most people’s height.
- Placing this desk riser on a 28” high desk will support people up to 6’1” tall
- Placing this desk riser on a 31” high desk will support people up to 6’5” tall
- ClassicRiser – available in 27″ / 35″ / 47″ / 41″ Corner
I am truly enjoying my FlexiSpot ClassicRiser! It has certainly met my expectations! With my long hours at the computer, it has helped me to be able to stand and work for periods throughout the day. My neck and back don’t bother me as bad and that infernal leg swelling I get from sitting too much has pretty much disappeared! It gets an A+ for helping with physical aches and pain.
The FlexiSpot Standing Desk has also helped with productivity. While I do spend long hours on the computer, I don’t seem to feel as fatigued. This, in turn, helps me be more focused and accomplish more. Finally, as someone who already has heart-related issues, I am very aware that sitting all day is not helping it. I am loving the lifestyle change of standing while I work. Then, of course, if I need to sit a while it as simple as the press of a lever.
