How often should I use my step?
You can use your step as often as you’d like. Most health care professionals recommend doing a moderate intensity aerobic exercise at least three times a week for thirty minutes at a time. Using your stepper on rest days can help you get the most out of a workout.
Are steppers better than walking?
While using a step seems similar to walking, the constant up and down movement actually makes it a more intense exercise. For that reason, you can burn more calories than if you spent the same amount of time walking.
Is it low or high impact exercise?
Aerobic steppers are considered to be low impact exercise. However, health care professionals state that overdoing stepping or step classes can put a lot of pressure on the knees and cause problems. Warming up and cooling can down help, as can exercising in moderation.
What’s the difference between steps and stretchers?
Steps are designed for you to step up and down from, like you would if you were climbing up and down stairs. Stretchers are ideal for anyone recovering from a lower leg injury or simply seeking to maximise their stretching. You use it to help stretch your body as part of a cool down.
Is a stepper right for me?
If you are looking for a low impact exercise you can easily do at home, getting a stepper is a great way to achieve that. They are easy to store and can be used any time. A lot of people find that using an aerobic step while watching TV is a good way to keep moving during what is typically a static activity.
