Product Description

The Mini cardio stepper operates on two Hydraulic cylinders that create a stepping motion. Less jarring on the body than treadmills. Improve circulation at the office during your break or use while watching TV at home or office. And the counter won’t be hard to see or miss steps. Having this extra feature provides the opportunity to get a lot more leg and thigh muscles in shape, particularly the outer and inner thighs. The twist stepper machine has the same sturdy base as an ordinary mini stepper and as you’d expect, two foot pedals that twist slightly.

Features

  • Heavy duty steel construction and low-impact aerobic work out.
  • Oversize slip-resistant footplates.
  • Electronic monitor tracks strides, exercise time, and calories.
  • Heavy duty steel with oversize slip-resistant footplates.
  • Compact, surprisingly versatile home fitness device.
  • A portable Elliptical machine with built-in resistance training.
  • Twist action helps you tone thighs and buttocks, while achieving a challenging cardiovascular workout; work deep muscles in hard-to-reach places without putting stress on joints.
  • LCD display shows total count, time, calories burned, and rep count.

    :

    When it first arrived it took me a week or so to “get my sea legs” and figure out how to balance on the machine because there is no handle. I started off by using the machine next to a wall so I could steady myself. Eventually I got used to the motion and now I can balance without any issues and feel totally comfortable.

  2. 5 out of 5

    :

    Note that if you want to work on your arms, you may want to use tension bands or small weights as you work out–unless you’re like me and have really bad balance!

    I’m glad to have made this purchase. If you are a hard core work out guru, this probably isn’t the thing you’re looking for. But if you’re like me and in need of a way to get your moderate 30 minutes daily, you’ll be glad you spent the money for this. It’s worth it.

  4. 5 out of 5

    :

    Now, I’m not an athlete, and though I am a little overweight, I’m not good with most gym equipment. I don’t stick with them and end up exercising better when just doing aerobics or other ‘phys ed’ style moves. I can see myself using this every single day, and for that,

  5. 5 out of 5

    :

    Immediately after I was done, I wanted to try it, but my balance isn’t that great. I moved the elliptical close to a wall so that I could stand on it. Within a minute, I was balanced and working out–no joke. It is super easy to use and completely intuitive to boot. I managed to get some leg burn going whilst catching up on the news, which is exactly what I was hoping to do.

  6. 5 out of 5

    :

    The first thing I want to say about this little beauty is wow. I’m not mechanically inclined, so I was pleased that it took all of five minutes to assemble the product (less than I’ve ever spent with ‘easy to assemble’ IKEA furniture!).

  7. 5 out of 5

    :

    I like it so much I just bought another one yesterday to keep at my office, even though I have free access to a high-tech gym in my office building. My girlfriend loves walking but hates it when it is hot and humid, and we have been experiencing record-high heat in the southeast for the past few weeks so doing anything strenuous outdoors is begging for a heat stroke so this is a life saver.

  8. 5 out of 5

    :

    My girlfriend’s ankles and knees are somewhat weak but the motion of this elliptical is very gentle on them. It was easily assembled in less than 10 minutes. Use it sitting down when you’re watching television and you’ll forget you’re exercising because it’s so unobtrusive and quiet.

  9. 5 out of 5

    :

    It is as quiet as a mouse, gets your heart rate up, is easy to move, works your core, quads, rear end, and thighs. If your core isn’t strong, use a chair or something else in front of you to balance until you can balance on your own.

  10. 5 out of 5

    :

    We sold our treadmill and recumbent bike years ago because we rarely used them and they took up too much space. We have regretted getting rid of the treadmill because we have been stagnating, exercise-wise. Found this, read all of the reviews and we are incredibly pleased with it.

  11. 5 out of 5

    :

    I really feel it in my calves and buttocks, especially when standing up after using awhile. It is not hard to pedal, in fact at first I thought it wasn’t helping me at all until I stood up.

  12. 5 out of 5

    :

    I unexpectedly had spaghetti legs! It also pedals backwards which feels like it works a whole new set of muscles. Backwards is really fun. I have had this for 2 days and have pedaled at work just about all day each time. It feels so good to get some activity while sitting at a desk job.

  13. 5 out of 5

    :

    The movement is less of an up and down pump that you would have with a bicycle and more of a forward and back gliding motion. Most people don’t even notice I am using it when they talk to me, especially when you slow down.

  14. 5 out of 5

    :

    As the scale continued to move downward, my chronic pain and windedness eventually subsided enough to incorporate other exercise into my daily routine, such as lifting weights, walking (usually with walking poles, and only for a definite purpose, like doing errands), and riding my (outdoor) bike (my favorite thing in the world to do). But through it all, I continued to pedal while I sat at my desk.

  15. 5 out of 5

    :

    I stinking love this thing. I bought it to go under my work desk where I sit all day. I started out looking for a cheap under desk exercise bike but after reading some reviews was concerned about hitting my knees underneath and looking funny while pedaling.

  16. 5 out of 5

    :

    I am shorter than some at 5′ 3″, and have no problems what so ever with knees hitting desk, even with a keyboard tray mounted underneath. If you are tall, lowering your chair temporarily would probably do the trick for you. The best part is that I can read and type while pedaling (I am pedaling right now actually!)

    :

    During this whole weight loss journey (began June 2011; lost 165 pounds by June 2013), I have also gone through multiple stints where, due to various injuries, I was unable to engage in any of my usual exercises or activities. I had several falls in the snow during the harsh winter that left me with multiple injuries (including a torn rotator cuff, severely sprained ankle, and bruised knee),

  18. 5 out of 5

    :

    I also continued to tweak my eating regimen, gradually moving toward a 95% healthy, whole-food diet that is mostly an even mix (1/3-1/3-1/3) of (healthy) fats/protein/carbs (mostly low-starch carbs), with occasional “anything goes” splurges.

  19. 5 out of 5

    :

    This machine was a life-changer for me. When I first got it, I was living with a roommate in a loft-style cottage, and my bedroom, bathroom, and office were upstairs. My 24/7 chronic pain was so severe that I often had to go up and down the stairs sitting on my butt, because my knees couldn’t handle the stress, and I got too winded if I walked up the stairs. I also couldn’t stand for more than 10 minutes or walk more than a block without being in excruciating pain or feeling very winded and totally out of breath. But I could sit and pedal (and work) all day – yay!

  20. 5 out of 5

    :

    The very first month I lost 8 pounds, WITHOUT CHANGING MY VERY BAD EATING HABITS AT ALL! That was the catalyst I had been waiting for, for so long, and I finally got my motivation to start focusing on my diet as well. I changed my eating habits over the next few months, gradually transitioning to mostly healthy food choices as well as paying attention to portions. After 10 months I had lost 80 pounds, and up to that point, this machine was my ONLY form of (aerobic and/or calorie-burning) exercise!

  21. 5 out of 5

    :

    After decades of fluctuating between “skinny years” and “fat years,” a serious bike accident in 2003 left me almost immobile with daily chronic, severe pain, limited mobility and energy – and tipping the scales at 310 lbs. I spent 5 years experimenting with different at-home exercise gadgets in search of something that I could do comfortably within my mobility and energy limitations and still burn up enough extra calories to make the scale move. Balancing ergonomics with while-you-type exercise gadgets proved challenging because of the clearance required to accommodate the circumference of most pedaling/stepping devices. The lower pedaling circumference of the Stamina portable elliptical machine allowed me to have the best of both worlds.

  22. 5 out of 5

    :

    I put it under my desk and pedaled while I worked, at a medium tension, mostly at a 5-7mph rate, off and on throughout the day (not constantly, just whenever I thought about it). I also watched TV while at my desk, so during those times when I would be watching a show or a movie and not needing to focus on work, I would increase the tension a bit and pedal faster,

  23. 5 out of 5

    :

    Needless to say, with my 165-pound weight loss, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this machine, but as others have pointed out, it’s not perfect, and there is certainly room for improvement in a future model. Grab a cuppa while you read about my pedaling adventures …

  24. 5 out of 5

    :

    I love this elliptical! It isn’t exactly “portable”, but I was able to carry it to work on public transportation without killing myself. Set up took about 15 minutes and didn’t require tools or more skill than Ikea furniture.

  25. 5 out of 5

    :

    Edit: I did experience some squeaking that was annoying enough that I stopped using the elliptical for a while. Eventually I missed it though and I pretty much WD-40’d the entire thing. Not sure what was causing the squeak, but it just needed a little grease and it’s working great again!

  26. 5 out of 5

    :

    At first I was only doing 10-15 miles a day before getting tired, or I would find it distracting as my heart rate got up, but now I have the resistance at 75% and I can use it for 4-5 hours a day, logging up to 50 miles on average. I have found a sweet-spot where I can peddle non-stop and I always feel riiiiight on the verge of breaking a serious sweat, so I take a 30 second break every 10-15 minutes just to keep from ruining my make-up.

  27. 5 out of 5

    :

    I’ve lost 6 lbs in 2 weeks while using this at my desk without other dietary changes. In fact, I’ve been skipping out on running after work now and then because my legs are sometimes SO tired from stepping all day.

    The only things I would caution someone considering buying this are 1, if you are using it under your desk, it feels more like a bike than an elliptical and if you have bad knees (like I do) you might feel pressure if you don’t have it perfectly aligned with your chair- turning to face a computer screen or talk to someone can turn your knees at a weird angle; 2, the calorie count is complete nonsense- don’t rely on it at all, I’ve found deskcycle .com has a more accurate calorie count based on other data this machine gives you; 3, sometimes the little step counter keeps running for several minutes after I have stopped moving. I’m not sure if it takes a few minutes to catch up on all the steps I’ve done (this seems unlikely), or if mine is just a little messed up, but usually if I get up from my desk when it says, say, 3 miles, when I come back a few minutes later it might say 3.5 miles, so you need to keep an eye on that too if you are trying to track progress.

    None of these are serious drawbacks though, and I would absolutely buy this product again.

It’s completely silent and I have had people standing at my desk talking to me who had no idea I was even using it. I always tell them about it though and now several other people in my office have bought one.

    As others have pointed out, though, as WONDERFUL as it is for my purposes, it is not a perfect machine. I have had a GREAT experience with both of mine, with no problems whatsoever (I eventually got a second one to use elsewhere in the house,

    I do not recommend this bike…it is very uncomfortable to sit on and it has no resistance even on number 10.

  33. 5 out of 5

    :

    I like this bike as much as I like any exercise equipment, lol. It seems well made and is quite enough for me to read or watch a show while working out.

  34. 5 out of 5

    :

    I have found that this was exactly what I was looking for. I’m a 72 year old woman and I was able to get it upstairs and put together by myself. It was well packed and the instructions were clear and it included a couple of wrenches for ease in tightening bolts. One warning – DO NOT remove the rubber band that holds the wiring for the computer part that is at the end of the tube until you are ready to hook it up. If you do, the wire will fall down in the tube! I managed to retrieve it with a long crochet hook! The only problem I encountered.

  35. 5 out of 5

    :

    As for its functioning – it’s completely quiet, smooth and easy to move around. You can ride it sitting back or lean forward, grab the handlebars like a regular bike. I do both. I do recommend this bike for anyone who wants to exercize in the privacy of your own home. I did 10 miles on my first session!

  36. 5 out of 5

    :

    I am extremely happy with my purchase. Great bike in my opinion for home exercise. Easy assembly. Easy to use and comfortable. I love it!

  37. 5 out of 5

    :

    I was happy with this bike for about a year. Then the pedal got stripped. I put in a request for help. They wrote back promptly a few times then ignored me and the issue. Bike is pretty worthless when pedal falls off after a few rotation.

  38. 5 out of 5

    :

    Quick, easy setup (it recommends two people, but one person can handle it easily, if they can manipulate ~50 lbs). Amazingly comfortable (I now have it set up in front of the TV: peddling through an episode or two of something on TV makes the time fly).

  39. 5 out of 5

    :

    Super comfortable. I have arthritis in my hips and with this bike I get the exercise I need.

  40. 5 out of 5

    Very nice bike. Compact

  41. 5 out of 5

    :

    Very pleased with this bike. Took my husband 30 min to put together. Good quality for the price. I noticed some reviews about needing a mat but I used it on carpet no problem

  42. 5 out of 5

    :

    very simple bike. Seems decently constructed though.

  43. 5 out of 5

    :

    It took a couple hours for me and my daughter to put together but the instructions were clear and the bike works great. One of my neighbors has already bought the same bike after trying mine out and she loves it too.

  44. 5 out of 5

    :

    It went together very easily, however the box it came in looked like it was run over with a truck. There was a fist sized hole in the side of the box, and the foam cover for the seat handle has a 5 inch gash. I’m not even sure how to go about getting a replacement part for it. Part of the internal packaging was wedged on so tightly, that I had to take a Dremel tool to it, to cut it off. The pole in the front of the bike, that the computer, and the manual tensioner fit into took me a half an hour to get free, because the heavy duty packaging was jammed on so hard and far that it bent the plastic housing on the wheel housing. I’m hoping that the bike continues to work well, considering the packagings very rough condition when it was delivered.

    Sturdy, comfortable. Amazing value. Health club quality at home.

    Love love this equipment. Easy to put together, easy to ride. Would recommend it highly.

  47. 5 out of 5

    The bike is great. Very comfortable and easy to use. The only problem is, the data on the display won’t reset. There are no info in the instructions on using the display.

    I love this. It’s very quite, sturdy and it gives me a workout that I was looking for. I would buy this again!!
