Stepper: Advantages, Disadvantages, Tips for Exercise


The stepper facilitates stair climbing without any interruptions and therefore enables high energy consumption. Steppers are amongst the most popular exercise machines in fitness studios.

Tips for Exercise with a Stepper

  • Pay attention to your posture.
    • The side posts are only there to help you keep your balance. Do not support yourself on the posts and only hold them loosely.
    • Make sure you are standing straight. The upper body should only be slightly bent forward.
    • Place the entire sole of your foot on the stepper.
  • Step constantly with a medium-sized step height. Avoid very small or very big step heights.
