What Are Stair Steppers?
Stair steppers are hugely popular options for carrying out home exercise. They offer benefits similar to running stairs, but they offer the convenience of being able to use them any time, any place, without having to leave the comfort of your home. Stair steppers take up very little space. They require moderate balance and coordination. The best part is they provide an effective workout for all levels of users from beginners to serious trainers.
Following on the heels of treadmills and exercise bikes, stair steppers took their first step towards fitness machine success in the early 1980s. Like most exercise equipment, stair steppers have come a long way in technical terms. For example, advanced computers fitted to most new models allow users to easily track their vitals at a glance. However, the most crucial benefits of stair steppers remain the impacts of cardiovascular and muscle tone fitness. Stair steppers continue to offer an exercise that is less jarring than treadmills, but more intense than elliptical trainers.
