The Benefits of Using a Stair Stepper Machine to Workout

What is a Stair Stepper Exercise Machine? 

A “stepper,” also known as a stair climber or stair stepper, is an exercise machine that replicates the motion of walking up stairs. Steppers come in various types ranging from step mills that resemble a small staircase to stair climbers that feature pedals with foot straps. 

Stair Stepper Benefits

Using a stair stepper machine to exercise regularly has various benefits. Below, we’ll discuss some of the reasons you might want to use a stair stepper, along with the areas of the body they work. 

1. Steppers Provide an Effective and Easy Cardio Workout

Cardio is as important a part of your overall health as any other part of your fitness routine. Steppers are a great way to get an effective, low-impact cardio workout that’s good for your joints. In addition, because your feet never leave the pedals, stair steppers can improve your aerobic capacity and stamina, not to mention burn a significant number of calories. The simplicity of a stepper also makes it much easier than some of the more complex types of cardio. Even something like running outside can take a lot of getting used to – especially if you’re new to it, or if you’re self-conscious. Being able to hop on a stepper at home for simple but good cardio means you’ll have no excuse! They’re perfect both for beginners and pros, offering a gentle start for the inexperienced, or a fast-paced endurance challenge for a veteran.

2. Steppers Provide a Full-body Workout

You may be wondering, “What parts of your body does a stepper exercise machine work?” Steppers don’t just help you increase your endurance. They can also strengthen and tone muscles in your lower body, including your calves, quads, hamstrings, and glutes.

A stronger lower body, which you get from consistent use of a stepper, will make heavy lifting, running, and other forms of activity easier. This means that your whole body will ultimately improve thanks to the foundation you’ve built with a high-quality, compact stair climber.

Types of Stair Stepper Machines

When you’re shopping for an alternative workout method to running – either outside or on a treadmill – you’ll find yourself picking from a wide variety of different options. Stair stepper exercise machines are a great alternative, and some are compact enough to use at your desk while working. 

Standard-sized Stair Climbers

Standard-sized stair climbers are a common sight at most gyms and fitness facilities, and are often larger and motorized. They can also take a few different forms. For example, a stepmill is similar to a treadmill in that you use it the same way. Stairs move within the machine to replicate walking up stairs. 

Mini Steppers

With that said, we know that a lot of people are trying to find the space at home to workout, and there’s little room at home for a full-size stepper. That’s where a compact, mini-stepper comes in. Mini steppers have a variety of different benefits. They’re compact and non-motorized, making them easy to use just about anywhere in your home. This kind of stepper exercise machine is perfect for those who don’t have a dedicated workout space.
