Product Description

Amazon.com

A compact, surprisingly versatile home fitness device, the Sunny Health & Fitness Twister Stepper is essentially a portable elliptical machine, with built-in resistance training. The twist action the device creates helps you tone thighs and buttocks, while achieving a challenging cardiovascular workout. Moving up and down and side to side, you'll work deep muscles in hard-to-reach places without putting undue stress on joints.

Resistance is adjustable, and the exercise bands work the arms, chest, back, and shoulders for a total body workout. Heavy-duty steel construction will provide years of reliable use, and oversized, slip-resistant foot plates keep you firmly planted during your workout. An onboard computer with LCD display shows total count, time, calories burned, and rep count. The stepper can be used for 15 minutes each time, because the hydraulics may get over heat if they use it for over 15 minutes each time. The hydraulics will make noises if they are over heat, and the hydraulics can be damaged too. The Maintenance and Care Instructions in the manual, and this item is not made for commercial use.

The arm bands are great because you can use them in multiple ways to work your upper body.

I purchased this in May of this year and wanted to wait several months before reviewing it. I'm glad I purchased it! I wanted a machine that gave me a good workout, easy on my knees, portable and did not take up a lot of space. This stepper met my expectations. I use it when watching TV and in a short amount of time I'm sweating. I've noticed that my thighs have gotten firmer and when I go up and down stairs my knees no longer hurt. It was quiet when I first started using it, but after using it on a regular basis it has started to squeak a bit, but not very loud that it distracts from TV viewing. Using W-20 took care of it.

I just received the twist stepper today, and I thought Id write a quick review on my first impression.
Pros:
-Looks Fairly well made and Sturdy
-The arm straps are adjustable, and they give excellent resistance
-The stepping resistance is adjustable and gives a really good workout
-The computer turns on and off automatically

Cons:
-The step feels like baby steps. Not horrible, but worth noting
-The instructions say to limit workouts to 10-15 mins??? WTH?
Im assuming thats to prevent a heat build up from friction, but 15 mins?

It seems like a good buy and will do exactly what I want it to do. I want to workout every day with enough resistance to maintain my body weight. Its portable enough that I can use it in any room, so chances are I will end up using it very regularly. Thanks for reading!

**UPDATE**
I emailed sunny health and fitness about the 15 minute time limit on work outs. They told me that the people who wrote the instructions took some creative license with this stipulation, and that the machine can handle an hour workout or whatever. That made me feel better about my purchase. Thanks!

After reading other reviews for this and other mini steppers sold here, I ordered this one and kept my fingers crossed. So absolutely glad I bought this thing! It is beautifully designed, sturdy, and required no assembly. The pedals position your feet legs and hips to simulate the real action of the body in climbing stairs--something which the others fail to do, and, force you to use all of the muscles of the hip torso and thighs. I am a personal trainer so have studied the physiolgy involed in these movement dynamics. Add three pound hand weights to ramp up arm muscle challenge, instead of the hand straps which I found restricted natural arm swinging form. Perfect for doing while watching tv or talking on the phone. I love this thing!!

I'm recovering from a herniated disk and am typically VERY active (running, swimming, martial arts) and need something small for my apt. for low-impact cardio while also strengthening my hips and glutes. I was really skeptical about this thing, but all the reviews seemed to rave. I've had it for over 2 weeks and it's quite awesome. Not flimsy at all, and small enough that it's unobtrusive in a small space. I watch TV and pump on this thing. It really works glutes, inner & outer thighs. I'm very pleased. Unfortunately, it doesn't quite fit under my bed, but it's really small enough that it's not in your face. If you're dedicated to actually doing the workout @ home, you can't go wrong with this - especially for the price!

I bought this machine because it was small, wouldn't take up much space, and seemed offer the kind of workout I wanted; not exhausting, but a good way to target legs, hips, thighs. Unfortunately, the Sunny Health & Fitness Twister Stepper just didn't do what I wanted it to do.

It's easy enough to put together, and the tension adjuster worked fine. The resistance bands can be used for balance or to add to your work out. Nice.

The biggest negative for this machine is that the "stride" is very small. You are not really working your legs at all. If you get up some speed, you can get a pretty good hamstring and calf burn going, but this is like taking baby steps. I prefer a machine that lets me stretch. I didn't realize this wouldn't do it.

I let my daughter try the stepper out, and she said the very same thing.

If you are just looking to tone your thighs and hips (not unimportant), this may be the machine for you. If you want to burn calories, lose weight, and really work your whole leg, this is not likely to work for you. I sent mine back.

Sunny Health & Fitness Twister Stepper
I have had this stepper for about one month. I weight 180 lbs. I have used this stepper on a daily basis for 30 to 40 minutes per day, except for the r 10 days when I was out of town, so I have used it about 25 days. It has collapsed.

I am pretty happy with this purchase; it arrived quickly, was what I expected, and didn't make much noise. The previous stairstepper I had bought was so loud that I had to return it, it was just unbearable; so I was nervous buying something online because the return process is so much more complicated, but I have to say I was not disappointed. It has started to squeak now, after about a month and a half of use; hopefully it can be oiled or something (I haven't tried that yet) but it's still not as disruptive as my previous one was (i.e. I can still hear my ipod or watch TV without trouble).

The resistance at first felt too light -- I couldn't keep my heart rate up, and the steps didn't seem to go up and down far enough... But I had been assuming that it would start off with some basic tension and then you could increase it as needed -- then I realized that you actually do need that tension knob in, without it there really is no tension at all -- as soon as you start tightening it, the resistance increases and the steps "pitch" increases too.

The side-step-motion is very slight; it feels natural, it's not even all that noticeable. I am not sure it is better for you knees, though. I bought this specifically because I have weak knees, but the first few times I used it, it actually made my left knee hurt -- I think it does twist them a bit. I then wore a knee brace for a few more times, to keep the knee straight, and it was fine; now I don't wear it any more and it's still fine, so maybe I just adapted.
