Stamina InStride Electronic Stepper – step up to this “smooth operator” for an effective workout at home This easy-to-store mini-stepper features two hydraulic cylinders that work smoothly as you step, so you can strengthen and tone your body while being easy on the knees. Wide, textured steps keep you steady. Plus, you can exercise while standing or sitting.
Limited in space but still want a great cardiovascular workout? Look no further than the Stamina InStride electronic stepper, which offers a footprint of only 12 inches wide by 16 inches long. As a result, you can use your InStride stepper just about anywhere–in front of the TV, while on the phone, in your sunroom, outside on the patio, or even at work. The InStride stepper is even small enough to toss into a workout bag and take on vacation. The stepper is equipped with two hydraulic cylinders that create a stepping motion similar to those of commercial stair steppers. As you step, you work your calves, thighs, buttocks, and core while boosting your cardio, helping you burn calories and fat. The InStride’s battery-operated multifunction fitness monitor, meanwhile, times each workout and counts the number of steps, so you can stay motivated and on track to reach your fitness goals.
Construction details include a steel frame and wide, textured foot pedals for stability. The InStride, which weighs 20 pounds, carries a one-year warranty on the frame and a 90-day warranty on parts.
About Stair Steppers
Stair steppers continue to be popular options for home exercise. They offer the same benefits as running stairs, but with the “any time, in any weather, without having to leave the comfort and safety of your home” convenience. Stair steppers don’t take up much space, require moderate balance and coordination, and can provide an effective workout for all levels of users, from beginners to serious competitors.
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 technically speaking. For example, advanced computers on most new models allow users to 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.
