StairMaster climber machines add another dimension to your at-home workouts. In this guide, you'll learn all about what you can expect from the StairMaster and the key benefits of this fitness technology.
For a controlled cardio workout that also targets key functional muscle groups, a StairMaster climber machine is a valuable addition to your workout routine. Take a look at some of the key StairMaster benefits::
• Low impact on ankle, knee, and hip joints
• Cardiovascular endurance and fitness improvements
• Toning and strength building in the quads, glutes, calves, and other leg muscles
• Variable resistance and intensity, suitable for all fitness levels
It all comes down to what you want to achieve from your workouts.
• Running machines provide specific functional fitness for road running but may increase the impact on the joints.
• StairMaster machines can provide targeted functional fitness results for trail running and mountain climbing.
• Exercise bikes and spinner bikes are highly effective for cardio but may not target the lower core muscles in the same way as a stair master.
• Adjustable seat and handlebar height can help you vary your effort levels while toning key leg and lower core muscles.
Both Spinner bikes and more traditional indoor cycling equipment provide low-impact cardio workouts, but which option is right for you?
• Spinner bikes offer more variation in resistance and intensity – this customization is important for many fitness enthusiasts.
• Spinner bikes offer better functional fitness training for outdoor cycling due to the rider's body positioning.
• Rowing machines are also low-impact but tone different muscle groups, targeting the upper body and upper core.
You'll find a number of different StairMaster stair climber machines in our range, each with its own specific functions and features. Here are a few of the features you can look out for as you choose the right piece of equipment:
• The StairMaster functions manually, driven by your own leg motions as you climb.
• Automatic braking and electronically-controlled drive chain provide resistance for more intense workouts.
• Some machines include OverDrive training features, with simulated Sled Push and Farmer's Carry resistance workouts.
• The central console offers control over workout intensity, moving incrementally through 25 rate levels.
• Connectivity features support workout data tracking and analysis.
• Tablet device holders and other features help you stay entertained while you work out.
