Sunny Health & Fitness Mini Stepper with Resistance Bands Review
I got the Sunny Health & Fitness Mini Stepper with resistance bands in order to write a comprehensive review, and was quite pleasantly surprised in regards to how sturdy, nicely balanced, and neatly manufactured this item is. Considering the affordable price, I was expecting far less. However, the Sunny Health and Fitness mini stepper doesn’t disappoint. Instead, it easily competes with some of the best steppers I had the pleasure of reviewing. So let’s see what’s inside the box, shall we?
Total body workout
The Sunny Health & Fitness Mini Stepper comes with removable resistance bands which will help you activate more than 20 core muscles. It is designed for low-impact aerobic workouts that burn calories while toning your chest, shoulders and back, as well as your abs, obliques, inner and outer thighs. Depending on your effort, you can easily burn 500+ calories in a single 20-minute exercise.
Hydraulic drive system
The Sunny Health & Fitness Mini Stepper with resistance bands features a hydraulic drive system that insures smooth stepping movement, providing a comfortable workout experience. If you are into low impact workouts for whatever reason, this hydraulic drive system will keep your ankles safe regardless the length and intensity of the session.
Wide pedals and height adjustment
For added comfort and safety, the Sunny Health & Fitness Mini Stepper features wide textured non-slip foot pedals and a height adjustment knob which helps you adjust the step motion height, alternating between short or long steps. The incline of the pedals is not adjustable though, nor is the step height beyond the machine’s range of motion. If this is something of importance for you, the Sunny Health & Fitness Mini Stepper may not be your perfect choice.
Replaceable resistance bands
It is such a convenience that the resistance bands are replaceable. It means that you can easily put a lower resistance band and keep up with your exercise even when feeling overwhelmed, or put a heavy-duty band whenever you feel like you can go for it. I love it!
The LCD monitor displays the basic workout statistics – steps, calories and time, adding to the effectiveness of our exercise. However, if you are into more in-depth exercise tracking, you will need to rely more on personal fitness tracking devices, especially when it comes to the correct amount of calories burnt as well as your heart rate measurements. Nevertheless, the monitor provides enough statistics to measure your workout, and compare each session with the one before.
Assembly and storage
The Sunny Health & Fitness Mini Stepper with resistance bands does not require complicated and time-consuming assembly – just take it out of the box and attach the bands. It also has a quite small footprint (16.5L x 12.5W x 8H) which makes it convenient for home use and storage. Due to its light weight (14.7lbs) it is just as easily transportable as well.
The Sunny Health & Fitness Mini Stepper with resistance bands is an affordable piece of equipment for medium intensity exercises at home. It’s ideal for people who find it hard to squeeze the gym into their everyday routine, but want to get a decent level or cardio exercise with a pinch of muscle toning. You can later purchase stronger bands, essentially increasing the resistance, calories burned, as well as the opportunity to better target, and therefore grow your upper body. If you don’t want to count repetitions ad infinitum, this piece of equipment is a nice alternative to most popular fitness programs and ways of training. I highly recommend it!
