How to choose a good stepper exercise machine?

Stepper is a device that allows you to burn quickly a lot calories and firm up your calves, thighs and buttocks. It is small enough and usually inexpensive that most of us can afford to buy it and start training at home. How to choose a good stepper and what to follow when you buy?

Stepper – why should I use it?

Stepper is a device that simulates climbing or walking up the stairs, which is why it is ideal for people who want to burn excess body fat. Also, thanks to the stepper exercises, we shape up the calves, thighs and buttocks. Great news is that everyone can practice on this device, because stepper does not strain the joints to the same extent as during outside work or climbing concrete stairs.

Want to buy the right stepper? Consider:

What effect do you want to achieve?

What time of the day are you going to devote to the exercises?

How much space do you have at home for a stepper?

There are two kinds of steppers available: straight and twist. You can find models with lines (which are used for the upper body exercises at the same time) or with a pillar (to provide stability to the equipment on which the lower leg rests and the training becomes lighter).

The simple stepper simulates climbing stairs, while the treadmill is a bit like skating, with additional muscle movements. Links for upper body exercises will help strengthen the muscles of the arms and back. The choice of a stepper also depends on the time you can devote daily to the exercises. If we are going to practice a maximum of 30 minutes, we can easily buy so called mini stepper that has only steps. However, if you are planning longer workouts, you might want to consider a stepper equipped with a column to ensure the machine’s stability.

When choosing a stepper, you need to think where you will place it at home. Mini steppers will fit almost anywhere, and it is not a problem to hide them, for example, in the closet. However, if you prefer to buy a device equipped with a column, you must take into account that it will take much more space.

Before you buy – advice to consumers

It’s also a good idea to go to a sports equipment store before buying to try out a model and see what materials it is made of. Online stores offer many models at promotional prices, but often their lifetime is marginal.

Also note the sounds produced during the exercise – most steppers give the characteristic sound of the pistons, but many of them are also unpleasantly creaking, and it is often impossible to oil those creaking places.
