Any person using a fitness stepper will definitely experience some benefits after using it. But it's important to remind you here that merely owning a fitness stepper or having a membership to the local gym doesn't result in weight loss or muscle toning. You have to use these steppers to get results and that too on a regular basis. This means you have to adhere to a certain schedule, which isn't always easy. This is where fitness steppers come into the picture. With a fitness stepper at home, you can exercise whenever you've time or you're in the mood.

Fitness stepper vs. Running

Running requires no special props and can be done anytime you want, but it has certain limitations. One of the major problems that you may experience with running is that it has limited results on your body but has a big impact on your joints, ligaments and muscles. You can workout your lungs and heart together with great intensity by running but most runners suffer from joint or muscle injuries. A fitness stepper can give you a great workout and a low impact movement of your joints and muscles which eliminates most of the injuries that regular runners deal with.

Read on to know more about fitness steppers now that you know running isn't really the best option.

Exercise stepper

A fitness stepper is basically a machine which is designed for exercising your lower body and toning your leg muscles. You burn a lot of calories and fat if you climb a flight of stairs without stopping between floors. This is the basic idea of using a fitness stepper, which mimics the effect of climbing stairs to some extent. When you run up and down on a flight of stairs, it increases your heart rate and the rate at which you breathe. This is the very beginning of a cardiovascular workout. It benefits your heart and lungs. Exercising your heart and lungs is good for your health and you can also burn off excess fat, which is stored in your body. However, climbing only a few stairs or taking breaks from your stepper will not help you. You need to exercise at least 30 minutes at a time.

You can have low impact workouts with steppers which are designed to target different problem areas and this helps in keeping the body in shape.

Air Climber fitness stepper

The Air Climber is developed by United States Aerobic Champion Brenda Dygraf. It offers numerous benefits and helps in maintaining good health and fitness. It is way ahead of traditional steppers when it comes to safeguarding the users' joints, ligaments and muscles. It frees you from the jarring impacts that cause injury over time. Air flows from each chamber to the next one very slowly and this provides an exception and result oriented workout along with cushioning the joints. This protects you from injury. A wide range of muscles are targeted when you use the Air Climber. This includes the femur bone, hip flexors and three gluteal muscles, more commonly known as, the buttocks. Other major muscles which are targeted are the calves, quadriceps and hamstrings. Most people would like to know how many calories are burnt while exercising. If you set your stepper at a rigorous level, you burn around 107 calories for every 25 pounds of body weight, in a session of 60 minutes.
