Stairmaster 8 Gauntlet w/ 10 inch
Benefits of using the Stairmaster 8 Series Gauntlet
Increase Core Muscle Strength Using the Stair Master 8 Series Gauntlet requires simple balance but significant strength, more so than other cardio machines.
The simple act of maintaining balance engages core muscles with every step, building strength and endurance of this critically important muscle group.
Tone and sculpt your entire lower body Stair climbing on the Gauntlet engages every major muscle in your lower body as many as 120+ times/minute: glutes, hamstrings, quadriceps and calves. High repetitions are famous for building lean muscle and burning fat which results in toned and sculpted muscles.
Low Impact The 8-Gauntlet makes you work hard without being hard on you. You can achieve high work efforts while moving at very low speeds relative to other workout options, minimizing the toll/stress on the body. For example, climbing at 1mph on the Stair Master Gauntlet is roughly equivalent to running at 6mph on a flat treadmill.
Better than “Real” Stairs Climbing “real” stairs usually means you get to the top and then have to go back down. Descending stairs is much harder on your knees than climbing up because your muscles and connective tissues are being used as “brakes” to fight the effect of gravity, and you are hitting each step with more impact. With the Gauntlet, you get all the benefits of climbing while avoiding the negative elements of descending.
Make 20 minutes count for 30 Combining so many positive effects (cardio, strengthening, muscle building, toning) in one workout means it takes less time to get the results you are looking for.
