Since being introduced to the fitness industry in 1983, planet fitness stair climber has become one of the most popular pieces of training machines in gyms and homes. Along with staircases mountaineering physical features of convenience including controlled environment, water bottle holder and electronic display of data (step tracking, pulse, time course and number of burned calories), there are many health and fitness benefits that keep people climbing.
Stairs climbing increases pulse and ventilation, thus accelerating the absorption of the working muscles. If performed on a regular basis, stairs climbing reduces the time it takes for oxygen-rich blood to reach the working muscles enhance one’s cardiovascular endurance. This cardiovascular conditioning enhances one’s overall ability to maintain extended periods of daily activities.
Trapper mountaineers provide resistance to glutes, hamstrings, quadriceps and calves making it possible to shape and lean out of the lower part of the body. Many motorized stairs climbers allow a person to control the motion resistance. One should choose a stair mountaineer who has independent pedal action that forces one to push and lift the leg working both the front and back of the leg. Depending on pedal action, push down on a pedal to raise the other pedal. This action is less effective, the muscles work in one direction only.
