Sunny Health & Fitness Twist Stepper Step machine with Handle Bar Review
The Sunny Health & Fitness twist stepper with handle bar is a piece of equipment designed for lower-body workouts, especially ones that target the legs and buttocks. It is a handy fitness machine for home use, and one that is user-friendly, ergonomic, sturdy, and nicely balanced despite the introduction of a twisting motion. It also comes with other features shared by more complex and pricey stepping machines, which I will discuss in detail below. This model is numbered NO. 059, differing slightly from the other variations of the same step machine. So let’s see how it performs.
The Sunny Health & Fitness twist stepper with handle bar features sturdy and durable handle bars for support and balance while you exercise. Additional comfort is ensured by the foam padding covering the bars, ensuring a sweat-free and comfy grip. These handlebars will promote proper posture, forcing you to pay attention to maintaining an upright position while stepping.
The digital monitor screen displays exercise statistics such as calories, time, count and scan, so you can easily keep track of your progress. The scan mode enables continuous alternation of all the features for easy tracking and calculations. However, if you would like to have a more accurate insight into the basic statistics, or monitor your heart rate while exercising, you will need to use additional tracking devices. Nevertheless, the LCD monitor is large enough to show you what is happening at the moment, and provides a number of statistics to measure your next workout session against.
The spacious textured pedals provide safe slip-resistant positioning of your feet during the steeping motions. They are manufactured with durable and heavy-duty plastic, positioned ergonomically to support a low-impact and comfortable stepping motion.
The Sunny Health & Fitness Stepper is made of heavy-duty steel with a maximum weight capacity of 250 pounds. It is a steady construction that promises safe regular use without compromising the effectiveness of the machine. However, prolonged uninterrupted use may cause overheating, thus decreasing the tension resistance, so make sure to take frequent breaks while exercising. At least that’s what it says in the manual. I on the other hand exercised for 30 minutes straight (those legs, huh?) and despite the machine heating up there wasn’t any other problem.
Assembly and storage
The Sunny Health & Fitness Stepper needs no assembly and at 19’’L x 17’’W x 48’’H and only 24lbs it is relatively space-friendly and easy to move. The handles can also be removed for easy storage, essentially making this stepper a small footprint item.
The Sunny Health & Fitness Stepper with handle bar offers a low-impact workout experience that will spare your joints and bones from too much strain. It is ideal for people with sensitive knees and joints who can’t handle high-impact exercises. The twisting motion contributes to the low intensity and also works your buttocks and thighs. The step height is adjustable for people of different heights, which is a plus when compared to other models.
Whatever else might be said, the twisting motion does elevate the entire experience of working out with a stepper to an entirely new level. Twisting side to side, you will work on every muscle in your lower body, as you target glutes, hamstrings, thighs and butt from different angles. You will also work on your obliques, your lower abs, and frankly the entirety of your core. This stepper is especially effective for a nice core workout if you are a beginner or someone who wants to tone his abdominal muscles without having to get down on the floor.
The Sunny Health & Fitness Stepper is an excellent stepping machine designed for low-impact exercises and home use. It may not be enough of a challenge for seasoned gym-goers, but it does offer all that is needed for beginners or people who want to get in shape and tone their legs and lower body muscles. Sturdy, durable, and ergonomically designed, it will remain a part of your home gym for years and perhaps decades to come. Perfect for abdominal workouts while you exercise your lower body, and perfect for maintaining your shape, it will help you tone your legs, butt, and core without requiring herculean effort. Highly recommended!
