Stair climbers or steppers are excellent machines for burning up calories and exercising the major muscle groups of the lower body.
The basics to any steppers are sturdy, padded handrails to aid balance, electronic programs to keep you interested, and easy-to-set resistance settings. A sturdy steel or aluminum frame is a must. The best stair climbers keep your feet on an even plane with the floor at all times, allowing natural foot articulation. While there is a fundamental simplicity in the stair climbing exercise itself, add-on accessories for the upper body can provide a total body workout. Plus, stepping or climbing can be a rigorous exercise in the sheer effort it takes. An all-out workout on a stair climber can consume as much energy as you are capable of producing.
