About Stair Steppers
Stair steppers continue to be popular options for home exercise. They offer the same benefits as running stairs, but with the "any time, in any weather, without having to leave the comfort and safety of your home" convenience. Stair steppers don't take up much space, require moderate balance and coordination, and can provide an effective workout for all levels of users, from beginners to serious competitors.
Following on the heels of treadmills and exercise bikes, stair steppers took their first step towards fitness machine success in the early 1980s. Like most exercise equipment, stair steppers have come a long way technically speaking. For example, advanced computers on most new models allow users to track their vitals at a glance. However, the most crucial benefits of stair steppers remain the impacts of cardiovascular and muscle tone fitness. Stair steppers continue to offer an exercise that is less jarring than treadmills, but more intense than elliptical trainers.
As with any exercise program, consult a physician before you begin.

I think it is very sturdy and it is heavy, yet it is compact enough to move to a closet!
I'm very pleased with the purchase!
One other small problem - it squeaked quite loudly.
I like stepping a lot, and do it for a while when I play guitar hero. The moment I stepped on this product I was confused. The natural angle that your feet rest at is tilted towards the front of the stepper. I had to prop the entire device up to compensate. Other steppers I've had from two separate brands did not require such odd measures. It seems to me like they never tested their product for actual use.
I purchased two of these at the same time, knowing that I'll burn out the piston aspect of it like I always do other products. That should be the weak link, and I have simply come to expect it. However, another part has been breaking on me -- the cable that hooks into the pully.
I purchased two of these expecting one to serve as a repository for replacement parts. Sadly, I've burned through two cables and have to either get more, or replace the device with something that can stand up to a bit more use. The cables begin failing by fraying from one of the metal attachments that hook into the frame of the stepper -- they make a loud noise that is seemingly inexplicable, until you blow through the final strands that hold everything together.
This represents my third and fourth steppers owned since I started stepping two years ago. The single thing about these that is superior to others that i've used -- they are very quiet. I'll be purchasing another stepper today, but not this one.

Worked great, until the cable snapped. Also, could feel some "play" in the bolt before the cable snapped.
It did not last as long as I would have hoped.
