Exercise Equipment Review

Air Climber Review

Exercise gyms will probably always be a part of our society. However, more and more people are opting for equipment that they can use in the comfort of their own homes. This is especially true for people who spend a lot of time in hotel rooms. With lifestyles that are increasingly hectic, the ability to exercise at will and in the privacy of your own home or temporary living quarters is extremely appealing. The Air Climber is one of the popular fitness equipment products that target people interested in obtaining an aerobic workout on their own terms.

The Air Climber is unique in that a fitness equipment company did not develop it. Brenda Dygraf doesn't have a long history of developing fitness equipment, but she is very familiar with the fitness industry. Her aerobic accolades include a national aerobic championship and 18 regional championships. She is probably most known for her appearance in numerous exercise videos, which she often choreographs. In addition to the Air Climber, she has developed the Top 10 Trainer and Lateral Thigh Trainer.

The adage that good things come in small packages" is definitely appropriate for the Air Climber. This mini stepper takes walking and aerobic exercise to new heights. By simply stepping naturally on pedals, you can obtain an aerobic workout. The key to this equipment is the method by which the pedals work. Each time your feet step on the pedals, air is generated and flows through bellows located under the pedals. This "air power technology" is good news because it prevents the jarring effect on the joints that is usually associated with stepping machines. This means that you can workout longer without causing injury to your joints.

Another benefit of the Air Climber is that you don't have to work as hard as you normally would to achieve results. With a twenty-minute workout you will work your abdominal, leg, glute, and back muscles. This equates into a significant calorie burn. The longer you workout with the Air Climber, the more benefits you will attain.

The concept of the Air Climber is not difficult to comprehend. However, you are not left to your own devices. The Air Climber is sold with "Easy Air Express," a workout DVD to help maximize your workout. As you progress, you can purchase additional workout DVDs from the company website. The Air Climber also ships with resistance bands, which you can use to burn more calories by working both your upper and lower body.

In true home fitness equipment form, the Air Climber is easily stored so that it does not interfere with your home decor. You simply fold it and tuck it away in a small space, such as under a bed or in a closet.

The Air Climber costs about $120. This price is slightly above other equipment in its class of fitness products. However, when you use the resistance bands you actually turn this mini stepper into a full-body workout machine. This makes the equipment worth the price.

The recommended workout time on the Air Climber is 20 minutes. Some users claim that the bellows deflate for workouts just under this length of time. These users claim that this was frustrating because they had to interrupt their workout to stop and inflate the bellows. The weight that the Air Climber is able to support has also been a common complaint. The bellows also deflated for some users over 140 pounds.

Overall, the Air Climber is a fitness product that provides an aerobic workout that both the athletic and newcomer to exercise can enjoy. If you don't mind paying a little more for an innovative aerobic machine that can provide you a full-body workout with a high calorie burn in a short amount of time, the Air Climber is a good choice for you.
