Have you heard that “sitting is the new smoking?”

Studies show that “there’s a direct relationship between time spent sitting and your risk of early mortality of any cause, researchers said, based on a study of nearly 8,000 adults. As your total sitting time increases, so does your risk of an early death.”

Sit less and move more is what the American Heart Association is encouraging all of us to do.  How do you do that if you have to work at a desk all day?

We here at Circle of Docs has found the answer for you!

We have taken the arduous task of finding the perfect solution out of your things-to-do pile!

What is it?

So glad you asked!!

The WorkFit-TL, Sit-Stand Desktop Workstation from Ergotron


This easily adjustable desk allows for sitting or standing –

in under 3 seconds…


Let us just say, we have had some experience with stand-up desks prior to this one.  However, not understanding or knowing what we needed, or what is important with a stand-up desk; we sure didn’t know what we were missing!  The WorkFit-TL desktop converter fills that gap to a healthy work environment!

When this WorkFit-TL arrived…it was packaged extremely well.  Assuming there would be some assembly, we quickly got some basic tools ready.

To our surprise, this desk is literally READY TO GO as soon as it is unpackaged.  Remove a few shipping precautionary items and VOILA the desk is usable right away!

Adjusting the height is even easier!!  After all of the equipment – monitor, keyboard, etc. are placed on it, adjusting it is simply the squeezing levers on both sides.  Within seconds you can go from sitting to standing!  The desk extends high enough that I can assure that it would be comfortable for most people, even those above average height.

The best part of this desktop WorkFit-TL at your home office is its flexibility.  Unlike some desktop workstations that don’t adjust and take up a ton of space, the WorkFit unit collapses down to a slim desktop workstation within seconds.
