The invention of elevators ensured we’d be doing a lot less stair climbing, and usually we’re glad about that. But when it comes to exercise, climbing stairs offers some enviable benefits. The movement involved in climbing stairs goes a long way toward toning and defining muscles in the quads, calves, and glutes. It also provides a great cardio workout that’s easier on the joints but still works nearly every muscle in your legs. The repeated stepping motion tightens up core muscles, too.
Includes training for upper body
This compact machine delivers big results in a small package. With all the benefits of stair climbing, you can work out your upper body at the same time with the included resistance bands. It features a built-in hydraulic drive system that delivers a smooth stepping motion. You can adjust the height to your preferred level for longer or shorter steps. Wide non-slip pedals give you a firm ground to walk on, and the bright LCD monitor measures your steps, time, and total calories burned so you know exactly how you’re doing.
For novices or pros
The original vertical climber delivers weight resistance, muscle toning, and aerobic exercise – what else do you need? From the convenience of home, this versatile climbing machine gives you a full-body workout that combines cardio and muscle toning, all in a low impact exercise that goes easy on your knees and ankles. Great for novices or pros, it’s lightweight and easy to set up for your own home gym. Climbing machines give you a complete workout in half the time of many others, burn more calories than a rowing machine or treadmill, and you’ll love the results you’ll see in just 30 minutes of regular exercise.
Choose your intensity
This versatile stair stepper and climbing machine gives you the full-body workout you want, firming and building those upper body, lower body, and core muscles.
