About StairMaster
In 1983, a Tulsa, Oklahoma company created a fitness training product line that stepped up exercise to a new level--StairMaster machines. The invention was credited for being "among the first machines to turn gyms into modern exercise arenas" by USA Today, the nation’s most popular daily newspaper. Along with PDAs, laptops, and mobile phones, StairMaster machines have been labeled among the top 25 inventions that changed our lives over the past 25 years (USA Today, May 21, 2007). In fact, it was the only fitness product on the list.

More than two decades later, StairMaster products are still hard at work in gyms and homes preparing everyone from elite athletes to people in uniform, while being mentioned almost daily in the nation’s news media and sitcoms like Seinfeld. Ed Viesturs, America’s leading high-altitude mountaineer, relies on StairMaster trainers to prepare for climbs such as Mount Everest. "I do an hour on a StairMaster with a 50-pound pack on my back after simulating climbing movements in the gym," said Viesturs in Outdoor magazine. "These sessions hurt, but not as much as having to walk away from a climb because you weren't fit enough."

American hero Jim Campbell also looks to StairMaster trainers to maintain his physical readiness. A firefighter from Indianapolis, Campbell set the StairMaster StepMill record in 2006 (113.4 vertical miles in 24 hours). More than just a hobby, Campbell put his intensive training to use by rescuing a person trapped on the second story of a burning building--a feat that earned him a special commendation. Campbell joins thousands of firefighters who routinely train on StairMaster products to maintain top form. Are StairMaster machines a good solution for safe and effective lower body and cardio conditioning? Just ask each new firefighter candidate who must achieve 60 steps per minute for 3 minutes on a StairMaster StepMill while wearing a 50-pound vest and fire protective clothing ("turnouts").

We purchased the stairstep machine and when we went to use it, the tension on the stairs was not correct and we could use it. We went online and found this was a problem and there were some suggestions correcting the problem but we were not able to get it to work. We called the manufacturer and were told they sold the rights to this machine and parts were 6-12 weeks to get and we probably needed a new part. Fortunately Amazon.com is great and credited our account with only a $70 repacking fee. We felt this was fair on their part but I will not buy a Nataulis product again.

I bought this item several years ago and was disappointed after the first few months. When it works well like they way you'd expect. But then there are the problems. First, it is very expensive and I was willing to shell out the money hoping it would be top of the line and durable. However, in less than 30 hours of use the belt broke. I ordered a new one only to learn it was back ordered. The item took approx 3 months to receive and the machine just sat there not being used and taking up space. (Apparently, they just don't have that many replacement parts for these machines.) I haven't used it much since and I am worried that it might break again. AND in addition, these small clips that are on the side of the pedals wear and break very quickly from light use (seems to be a design defect). As a result, the pedals move around too much and the loose parts make my knees sore. VERY DISAPPOINTING. I really wish I could get my money back.

This Stairmaster Stepper is one of the best. After trying to decide between the StepMill and this Stepper, we decided on this Stepper due to cost, size, and maintenance. It does not disappoint. It's the same as the gym Stairmasters - built to last.
