‘Women’s Health Men’s Health’ Bluetooth Stair Stepper
Women’s Health Men’s Health Bluetooth Stepper is an efficient cardiovascular workout equipment for home or office use with the adjustable resistance bands, and Bluetooth functionality with the MyCloudFitness app.
It has an average customer rating of 4.3 out of 5 stars by 33 users. This modern compact stepper offers stepping motion rather than swivel motion that you may see on other machines. And this means a larger range of motion and less burden on your knees and joints. You will also be able to burn more calories in the same amount of time.
It is designed to mainly work on your thighs, calves, buttocks and abs as well as the upper body muscles with the resistance bands included. The height is adjustable up to 10 inches for you to have a more intense workout when you want. You can lock the step heights at three points to convert it into a stable step-up platform to do planks, step ups or other exercises. The total user weight capacity is 250 pounds, which is much more than the other stepper fitness machines on the market. You also have the adjustable resistance bands that let you work on your upper body efficiently while you’re on the stepper.
You can download the MyCloudFitness app on your Android or iOS phone free of charge and monitor your workout progress in real time. You can put in your stats into the app that you downloaded and track your progress. You will also find some workout videos to help you out. The LCD display panel on this compact stepper shows the calories burned, time exercised, steps per minute, total step count and scan. You can just put it in front of your TV and watch videos or listen to music while using this stepper, working on both your lower and upper body. It works relatively quietly and you will not be disturbed.
If you step all the way down you will hit the bottom back bar and hear a light noise but you’re not supposed to go all the way down. When you first start using it and feel that the stepper is not going up and down, please make sure you remove the pins and t-handled bolt at the front first. You’ll use the pins to get the stepper to lock it to have a stable platform to do your arm workout, planks or step-ups. Please note that this stepper can not be used in a seated position or under the desk and you do need to stand up and step on it. There is a circular knob at the front that unlocks the steps which also increases or decreases the step level.
You have the resistance bands for your upper body and also a tension knob to adjust the stepper resistance level between 1 and 10, which is actually the height adjuster. It gets quite hard at the higher levels and you may want to start out at a lower intensity and move up gradually. If you feel that the stepper is not holding your weight and you’re going straight down, you need to ensure the knob is screwed completely. It is a good quality product with a sturdy and durable construction, and a unique design that helps you burn more calories without being a burden on your knees. In the box you’ll get the stepper, hardware needed for simple assembly and user manual. 2 x AAA batteries that you need for the LCD display are included in the package. It is a great machine that is good value for money overall.
