How Do I Lose Weight Using Stairmaster?

Aug 17, 2007
Stairmasters or stair climbers are wonderful pieces of exercise equipment. They offer the same amount of exercise convenience as a treadmill, but they have the added muscle builder of climbing stairs.

Walking or running up and down your own stairs can be loud, noisy, annoying and even dangerous. Using a Stairmaster isn't as noisy and not as dangerous. It's a much more convenient and better, overall, than climbing stairs.

1) Benefits of using a stairmaster

Using a stairmaster is a great addition to your current aerobic exercise and/or cardio training. It's also smaller than most other cardio and aerobic machines and equipment, which makes for easier storing. Stairmasters will help your heart and lungs, as well as helping to build your leg, butt and abdominal muscles.

2) Are stairmasters better than other cardio exercise equipment?

Treadmills, elliptical and stationary bikes are big pieces of exercise equipment. You will get about as many benefits and advantages with a stairmaster that you would with a treadmill, elliptical or stationary bike. Stairmasters also have the added benefit of creating more muscle because of the climbing effect and will in turn help you build muscle a little faster than the other larger pieces of exercise equipment.

If you are looking for a great aerobic exercise and/or cardio training component, a stairmaster might be just what you are looking for to add to your workout routine. You can also bring your stairmaster along with you when you have to take a business or pleasure trip.

It should fit right into your trunk. That leaves you with no excuses for not working out even on trips and vacations! You just don't get that kind of portability and convenience with any other type of exercise equipment. This can be a great aerobic investment for you if you travel a lot or are away from home a lot of the time.

But some words of caution are in order before you head out to the first store to buy one of these. If you want to find a great deal take your time. You can find a good quality machine at an affordable price. Once you have made up your mind remember to start off slow, as always, with any new equipment. Sometimes it can take a little time to get used to using the machine. Once you are used to using the machine, you can step it up a little to help you lose weight, gain muscle and stay healthy.
