Getting and staying in shape can be a difficult climb. Hence the irony of the fact that climbing a stepmill may be one of the best and most effective ways toward fitness. We’ve already covered the benefits of a stepmill so now we’re reviewing one of our favorite models and probably the most popular commercial stepmill in the game right now, the StairMaster 7000PT.
The StairMaster 7000PT is primarily used for intense cardiovascular and lower body workouts. Using this stepmill is almost identical to walking or running up a flight of real stairs. There are three eight inch tall steps that revolve for an endless cycle of enjoyable stair climbing. It is also important to note that you should be at least over 100 pounds if you’re planning to use and purchase this machine. The steps may not move if you’re too light. Another note is that you should at least have a ten feet tall ceiling. If you’re a taller individual you will definitely need more space.
The new 7000PT also comes with a variety of features that weren’t available on the original stepmill. The main one being the different resistance levels and adjustable workout programs. It can go from 24 to 162 steps per minute for a wide range of fitness levels. There is also a backlit LED display which allows you to cycle through these different workouts. There is also a nationally recognized fitness test and a CPA Fire Fit test so you can gauge your fitness levels and improvement. The six included programs are quick start, manual, fat burner, calorie burner, speed intervals, heart rate zone trainer.
Other side features are heart rate monitoring, a reading rack, a water bottle holder and an accessory tray.
This is easily one of our favorite stepmills because it is also quite affordable. A commercial grade StairMaster 7000PT, which is extremely durable and will last an individual for a lifetime, will run you under two thousand dollars. The combination of an efficient design, different workout options and a variety of useful bells and whistles make this unit a must buy for stepmill enthusiasts.
Besides stepmills, we also have steppers, treadmills, elliptical crosstrainers, exercise bikes and a ton of strength equipment. Take a look at our commercial used fitness equipment today!
