Stair Stepper

  • Step on the platforms and slowly start moving your feet, trying to keep them from reaching the bottom. Push the Start button and enter personal stats when prompted such as age, weight, and gender. Then select which program and resistance level you want.

  • Step slowly and with a moderate range of motion to warm up with your hands lightly resting on the handrails. Leaning on them, especially with your thumbs rotated outward, increases risk of upper body injury and decreases the workload on your cardiovascular system. Increase the speed/resistance level and your range of motion (stepping with platforms almost hitting the top and the bottom) as you get warmed up. Do a 3-5 minute cool down of slow stepping before you stop to stretch.

  • Hips, Thighs, Calves

  • TIP: In order to prevent injury and give yourself an effective leg and heart workout, do not lean on the handrail. If you find it tempting to do so, lift your hands off the handrails for a few seconds and feel your legs power you through the motion.
