Step machines simulate the climbing of stairs. When you take a step up you are utilizing major muscle groups, including the buttocks, hips, thighs and calves. At the same time you are demanding an increased flow of oxygen and blood in your body, providing a cardiovascular and respiratory workout. Calories burned in the climbing of stairs is enormous, and weight loss, along with the right diet, is a certain result.
Because stepping down stairs can result in damaging muscle and joint stress, these machines are designed to take the place of stepping up. And because your feet do not leave the treads, you enjoy a lower-impact workout than you might get on a treadmill.
Step machines come in a variety of designs that accommodate fitness needs as well as budgets. Resistance to your steps is created by a variety of means, from hydraulic cylinders to electromagnetic breaking systems. Users stand upright when activating the treads, gaining balance and stability by grasping comfortable handle grips.
Today's machines offer electronic monitoring systems that provide you with a full menu of feedback information. These systems can track the time spent in the workout, heart rate, number of floors climbed, and more.
When considering a stepper, you may wish to think about storage options, transport castors or wheels, the height of the space in which you will be working out, and the capacity of the machine in relation to your weight. What ever your choice, the stepper is always an excellent option for a low-impact, full lower-body workout.
