Stair stepper vs stair climber
If you are looking for a new way of working out, our stepper machines and stair climbers could well be the solution for you. A stepper or stair climber workout is an excellent way to burn calories, strengthen a wide range of muscle groups and increase your aerobic capacity. As we offer some of the best stepper machines for your home, you don’t need to climb a mountain everyday to reap the same rewards. In fact, you don’t even need to go to the gym.
But what is the difference between a stepper machine and a stair climber? Stair climbers are often referred to as mini escalators. Once you switch the machine on, the steps move continuously. Though they tend to have handrails for safety, you’re likely to lose proper form and not benefit from the movements if you grip them tightly, so be sure to only use them for assistance if you lose your balance. Steppers, or mini stepper machines on the other hand, feature two platforms, or pedals, where you plant your feet. As you push one side down, the other side will rise, giving the sensation of stair climbing in a rise-and-fall motion. This is like the difference between automatic and non-motorised treadmills.
Benefits of a home stepper machine
There are some huge benefits you can enjoy when you own one of our very best home stepper machines. When you buy stair climber exercise equipment from OnBuy, as well as the benefit of being able to workout at home, you can also improve your fitness in a wide range of different ways.Improve your cardio
Offering some of the best stepper machines in the UK, you can improve your cardio and overall fitness. Rather than running or walking on a treadmill, a stair climber workout can offer a change of pace, allowing you to target different muscle groups. Mixing up your exercise routine is recommended to improve your cardio and a stair stepper exercise machine can help you to do just that.
As well as improving your cardiovascular health, using a home stepper machine also allows you to strengthen your heart and lungs through aerobic conditioning. With strong lungs, you can breathe in more oxygen, helping you pump oxygen-rich blood to all your muscles, allowing you to perform at a higher level.Burn calories
A gym stepper machine for your home is an efficient and effective way to lose weight. How many calories you burn depends on a variety of factors, such as your current weight, fitness level, and age. Just 30 minutes on a home stepper machine can allow you to burn up to 300 calories, with the number of calories you burn from a home stair climber workout increasing when you intensify your workout. Many of our stair stepper exercise machines come with an array of smart features such as fitness trackers, so you can monitor how many calories you burn when you use some of the best stepper machines in the UK.
Increase your strength
While some of our best stepper machines for your home are a great form of cardiovascular exercise, you can also easily improve your strength and condition. Tone your body with a stair climber workout, with the potential to improve your bone strength and health in the process. A stair climber machine can help you to combat the risk of conditions such as osteoporosis, allowing you to work out and fight the signs of aging all in one. As a stair climber machine workout allows you to use your entire body, you can also strengthen your core muscles. While you pump your legs and keep balance in a stair climber machine, you can strengthen your abdominal muscles, improve posture, and even reduce the risk of injury.
Why do stair climbers and steppers work?
Stair climbers and stair steppers are a great way to build lower-body muscle while strengthening your core. Using the lower, larger muscles within your body is the best way to burn calories more quickly. Each step you take on a stair stepper or stair climber workout will engage your glutes, calves, hamstrings, and quads. With so many large muscle groups working all at once, this makes stair climbers and steppers excellent accessories for a comprehensive workout routine.
As these muscles are also some of the largest and most metabolically active muscles in the body, you are strengthening as well as quickening your metabolism. If you’re looking to lose weight, a HIIT-style stair stepper workout is an extremely effective idea. High-intensity interval training increases oxygen flow to the working muscles, and therefore boosts the number of calories burned in a single sitting. These machines are also great to use when recovering from an injury. Plus, the stair stepper is a low-impact exercise machine, which makes it a brilliant option for those suffering with back problems or weaker lower-body muscles.
