Steppers are machines that have foot platforms that you place your feet on and make a motion that simulates walking up stairs. They come in conventional grade styles that are usually seen at gyms, but there is also a mini stepper available which can offer many benefits.
Space is a big issue when it comes to exercise equipment. One big benefit of mini steppers is that they are small and compact, making them easy to store and set up.
Being that the feet are fixed on top of platforms, there is no impact so this helps to keep the joints free of trauma.
Mini steppers can provide a good leg workout. Specific muscles that get targeted include the glutes, hamstrings, quads and calves.
Working out on a mini stepper will also increase your cardiovascular endurance.
Some mini steppers come with attachments where you can hook resistance tubes to them. This will allow you to work your upper and lower body at the same time.
Other features that some mini steppers have include distance and calorie counters. This can help you stay on track if you want to burn a specific amount of calories.
