Have you known someone with Deep Vein Thrombosis? There are approximately 900,000 Deep Vein Thrombosis episodes (blood clots) every year in the US, 300,000 of which become fatal. Long flights are a leading blood clot risk, due to sitting sedentary for hours at a time in cabin pressure, (oxygen deprivation).
How do you feel when you fly? In addition to DVT risks, long distance travelers report experiencing physical discomfort, cabin fever and jet lag from just sitting there in cabin pressure for hours.
Thankfully, LifeBikes now “fly through the air with the greatest of ease!” They are burning calories, while helping to prevent jet lag and blood clots – right from their seats!
Customers Share About LifeBiking on Long Flights. Here Are Two of Them:
“I recently took a long flight from Baltimore to Hawaii. I am a breast cancer survivor and suffer from localized Lymphedema in the armpit where my lymph nodes were removed. The compression shirt I used to wear was stifling and uncomfortable, not to mention hideous looking. I have been looking for an alternative and have found it in FlyteBike. It’s quiet and unobtrusive.
I suffered no swelling after a long flight and emerged from the plane ready for vacation. Thanks, FlyteBike. I won’t leave home without you!” — Lisa R, Baltimore, MD.
“As a nurse scientist specializing in cardiovascular risk prevention and reduction, I was concerned with the possibility of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) regarding a meeting I needed to attend in Singapore.
Having searched the internet looking for adequate preventive measures, I came upon an article on the LifeBike®. I immediately contacted Robin and she was kind enough to deliver one just prior to my embarking on the 20-hour flight. I had no issues going through Customs or security.
The LifeBike was light and easy to carry. Onboard it was not disruptive, and several other passengers asked to try it out. I pedaled almost every hour for at least 10 minutes and felt fine when I reached my destination. I don’t know what I would have done without it! No amount of walking around the cabin or stretching in the galley compared to the exercise I was able to achieve with the LifeBike in the comfort of my own seat.
Being a nurse, I am well aware of the effects of long flights on passengers of any age, let alone greater than 50! The FlyteBike not only provided an effective way to improve my circulation but it also allayed my fears of a blood clot. It is worth its weight in gold!” — Joann E., PhD, RN

Necessity is always the mother of my inventions…I am the only Broadway star turned serial inventor I know! 🙂
I starred in Broadway musicals for years as Robin Boudreau, (my maiden name), playing Linda Ronstadt’s sister in “The Pirates of Penzance” with Kevin Kline, co-starring with David Cassidy in “Joseph & the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat” and singing “Memory” in “CATS.”
Now licensed by Audible (Amazon), my first invention was My Wake UP Call® Motivational Alarm Clock® Messages, My Daily Inspirations™ and My Good Night Messages™. Listeners choose from 150 hours of patented 5-minute messages with the Dalai Lama & other experts who inspire you to Wake UP to the life of your dreams, instead of in a state of alarm or with “violent programming.” (Audible, Apps, Mp3s) https://www.MyWakeUPCalls.net
If you are like me, you don’t want to have to choose between your fitness and your family, or between your wellness and your work. I couldn’t stand sitting sedentary at my desk all day or on long flights in “cabin pressure” (oxygen deprivation.)
Eighteen months after conceiving the idea for a lightweight, foldable, truly portable pedal device, FlyteBike™ Portable Pedals was born. At 3.5 pounds, FlyteBike™ comes fully assembled, folds flat, and goes anywhere with you in its bag, just like sneakers. I am grateful that FlyteBikers everywhere are easily and conveniently burning calories, boosting mood and increasing energy wherever they sit – at their desk, at home while watching a favorite show, even on long flights! Please check out the testimonials from happy FlyteBikers at https://www.FlyteBike.com/testimonials
Since I am known to say that FlyteBike boosts your metabolism whenever you sit, I accepted the challenge to “put my pedal to the metal” and sing out while FlyteBiking. Having starred in Broadway musicals for several years and written and produced a couple of original song albums, I agreed to see if I could belt out my FlyteBike song while FlyteBiking.
Did you know that the average LifeBiker burns 10 calories per minute? Yes, that’s 300 calories every 30 minutes! AND, since pedaling is a natural endorphin booster, LifeBiking lifts your mood and energy levels while you boost your metabolism.
Speaking of burning calories anywhere you sit, I had my annual “Well Woman” exam this week. My gynecologist was running behind. I was just sitting there waiting in the examination room when I realized I had my LifeBike with me.
I decided to give myself a spontaneous “Well Woman Waiting” exam. – I asked myself, “What would a Well Woman do as she sat waiting for the doctor to arrive?” I answered by taking my FlyteBike out of its bag and began pedaling. I burned 300 calories and got those endorphins flowing for the next 30 minutes. I was so happy that I was able to make good use of the time by fitting in my fitness while waiting for the doctor.
After my examination, my doctor told me that I passed my Well Woman exam with flying colors! As I was heading to my car, I realized I hadn’t graded myself on my “Well Woman Waiting” exam. Since I added a new possible place to pedal to my FlyteBiking list, I gave myself an A for effort!

I am so happy I got to share, “How to Stay Energized for Sustainable Success” on Chris Salem’s popular Sustainable Success podcast. Chris walks his talk about his belief that, “Healthy habits lead to prosperity in all areas of your life and business.”
Chris and I had participated on the committee for the 3-day City Summit and City Gala in Hollywood last week. I was absolutely thrilled to have been there. The back-to-back lineup of innovators, celebrities, and successful entrepreneurs was awe inspiring. Ashton Kutcher, Matthew McConaughey and Jack Canfield were just three of the many powerful speakers over the action packed, 3-day City Summit and City Gala, organized by founder, Ryan Long. I would wholeheartedly recommend attending next year. I am planning to be there.
As with most speaker events, we spent most of the summit sitting in our seats. I felt especially grateful I got to LifeBike® to burn calories, boost my focus and energize – right from my seat.
I also brought a spare LifeBike for fellow attendees who asked to borrow it. Several people around me told me they had been feeling “lethargic” or “zoning out” from just sitting there for hours and asked to test it out. After LifeBiking for a few minutes, they said they could feel the difference – they felt “energized” and “awake again.” Yay!
Tune into my interview with Chris to find out, “How to Stay Energized for Sustainable Success.” I also share my experience with turning personal pain points into new products. If you have ever thought, “There must be a better way” at times during your day, here’s my process from idea to innovation.
Have you ever heard the miraculous true story that inspired me to launch FlyteBike™ last year? It all started when I shared how LifeBike® prevents blood clots & jet lag on long flights with Virgin CEO, Richard Branson, at his home on Necker Island…
To your health! Robin

Do you use a Stand-Up Desk? Many of us have opted for them to avoid sitting all day – since we learned that sitting is the new smoking. I bought a stand up desk several years ago but at the end of the work day I noticed my ankles were swollen and I didn’t feel energized, as I do when I get to move my body.
Now new research shows that standing all day may actually be worse for you than sitting! (1) When we are sedentary – standing or sitting – our hearts have to work harder to pump blood throughout our bodies. People who stand at work have been shown to have higher rates of clogged arteries, back pain, varicose veins and muscle cramps. It turns out that the key to alleviating sitting disease isn’t just standing, it’s moving!
Another suggested solution to counteract sitting all day is to set an alarm to remind you to get up and walk around for a couple of minutes every hour. Have you ever taken one of these breaks and then returned to your desk only to think, “Ok, now where was I?” It felt like I was interrupting my work flow, and would always take time to get back on track and fully refocus on the task I had left behind.
I invented FlyteBike™ because I didn’t want to have to choose between my wellness and my work. LifeBike® Portable Pedals is 3.5 pounds, folds flat and goes anywhere with you in its own bag. FlyteBiking burns calories, enhances cognition and increases your energy anywhere you sit – at your desk, at home, and even helps prevents blood clots on long flights.
To your health! Robin

I am so happy to be included in the Get Healthy Podcast alongside an inspiring lineup of health and fitness experts.
