When I read those less-than-stellar reviews, though, it seemed that the persons writing them had issues with the extra features, not the stepper itself. Many of the 1- and 2-star reviews cite broken resistance-band clips as issues, and the computer clearly doesn't work very well, if at all.
The seller, however, had a very good rep.
I opted for this stepper because I didn't want the resistance bands and didn't care if they're of bad quality, and I use music to time my workout, so I didn't care about the computer either. I also opted to spend the least amount of money possible because I didn't know if I'd end up using the thing consistently. (Still not very good at that, but improving.)
When it arrived, it was clearly a returned unit: the packaging had been sealed, let's say, less than professionally. I gulped.
But: this basic stepper does exactly what I want it to: it's easily adjusted, has a small footprint, and is very sturdy. I have no fear at all of falling off it, or of it failing catastrophically while in use. I don't want the resistance bands and don't have any use for the computer. If you do, read the reviews, and decide on that basis.
If all you need is a very basic stepper, though, this will do the trick very nicely indeed.
This item does a lot if you exercise MINDFULLY. If you think you can just put your feet on the machine and pull on the bands, and the machine will care for itself, it won't work. But there's nothing wrong with focusing on what you're doing. You need to balance yourself on the stepper and be aware of maintaining equal weight proportion on your left & right sides. You need to learn to step smoothly. You need to be aware of what your body is doing, not just the machine. That said, once I got down the basics, I've had not trouble.
Pros: Takes up very little room; can be easily stored
Helps develop core balance since YOU have to balance yourself. It doesn't do it for you
I find the material to be well-made and the device well constructed.
The resistance bands are as sturdy as any I've had in the past.
The read-out indicator of steps per minute, work out length, etc. are OK. Do you really need a device that is accurate to within a microsecond?
The 'manual', although very basic, is written in grammatically correct English. If you've gotten Asian products with indecipherable instructions, you know this can be a benefit. You can always get a simple resistance band guide to help with coming up with your own routine.
Cons: The maximum weight is stated as 220, but I wouldn't recommend it for anyone over 200 pounds.
If you wear a sneaker/shoe larger than a 12 men's, you will probably have trouble with the size of the steps.Read more ›
*UPDATE* This morning I was using the stepper and the metal bar that holds the resistance mechanism snapped. I didn't expect this thing to last forever, but two weeks if ridiculous. I'm going to contact the seller and ask for a refund.
This is a perfect exercise machine to use at the office or in my instance, in my travel trailer while traveling. It's great for a cardio vascular and low impact workout. I am 5'6", 125 lbs and in my mid fifties. Although I'm sure this equipment would not be adequate for a 250 lb jock, or someone looking for stronger resistance like you get from gym equipment, it does the job and I will say that it works for me. It's exactly what I was looking for.
