Our full review of a Gentle and Low-Impact workout Climbing Stepper
The Sunny Folding Climbing Stepper offers a simple workout with minimal distress to knee, hip and spine. The stepping action will help strengthen the muscles surrounding the knee joint, helping to protect the knee against future injury. This type of exercise will also help strengthen the buttock muscles. This can help greatly with day-to-day activities such as getting in and out of seats, walking, and climbing stairs.
Any activity that uses the big muscles in the legs in a repetitive motion will also work the heart and lungs. If you exercise frequently (e.g. three times a week), you will improve your cardiovascular fitness and help reduce your risk of future health problems. See our article on Can you get a good workout from a climbing machine for more information. The user weight limit is 220lbs but several buyers have reported that is works well with user weights up to 240lbs.
