    It was pretty easy to assemble and sturdier than i thought it would be. I had bought one without a handle at sports authority years ago but this one was much better. the steps are plenty big enough for your feet and the whole thing is fairly sturdy. it is also light weight which makes it easy to pull out in front of the tv to step. the only thing i wasn’t sure about was that there is a pulley underneath and the steps go a bit sideways as well as up and down. This is good because you can adjust the resistance more than other kinds but it felt akward on my knee joints at first. now that i am getting used to that aspect i think it is a nice piece of equipment for the price. no trouble with delivery or anything.

    Hubby purchased this as a surprise for my birthday! OMG, I lost 7 pounds in one week from working out on this little machine. The size was perfect, the work out great. I got so I was looking forward to my first thing in the morning 800 on this as I caught up on the morning news.

    Sadly, it broke yesterday. The bolt that holds the cable to the fly wheel broke. We cannot find a part that matches it. Sunny Health and Fitness did respond promptly to my email but seem to be giving me the run around with requests to send a picture of the broken bolt…well measure the bolt, do you have the recpt? Scan it and send that to us.

    The recpt. was thrown away when we got this as the place we got it from will NOT refund for any reason at all.

    Needless to say, I will get another stair stepper…just not this brand nor at places like Marukai that will not be flexible with customers.

    Decided I needed a stepper in addition to my treadmill. I could not afford the Bowflex stepper. This item was in my price range and meets my expectations. Can get a very good workout, has the readout recording the time, calories, and number of steps. I am very pleased.

    This stepper is a great little machine. It was very easy to assemble – I didn’t even look at the directions. The battery for the monitor was included, so I was good to go right out of the box. Included are the stepper, the monitor, 2 “light” resistance bands, 2 “medium” resistance bands (light and medium are pretty subjective terms), attachable handles, and attachable… um… foot thingies. Additionally, I was elated to find it comes with a workout DVD. I must have missed that on the product description. So, some bad news: it squeaks. I have gone over the length and breadth of it with a can of 3-in-1 oil, and it still squawks intermittently. It’s diminished over a few workouts, so I hope it will stop eventually. In the meantime, I keep lube-ing it up before a workout. The resistance bands, while adjustable, are still a bit too long for my 5’3″. I also think they are a little weak, but that might be because I can’t get enough resistance based on the length. Regarding the monitor: I think that one needs to know things like heart rate, age, and resting pulse before it’s possible to accurately calculate one’s expended calories. So while the monitor is nifty and a nice guide, I don’t trust it. When I tried the DVD, I was dismayed that it’s only a 10 minute workout. I was just getting into it and it was time for the cool down. However, I found the instructor only merely annoying and very supportive. If you are just starting out on a fitness program (and weigh under the max. recommended weight of 220 LBS.) this could be great for you; otherwise, I would watch it once for some basic ideas (like plie, squats and stretches), then go to it with the tunes cranked. I have not yet tried the resistance bands workout which follows the 10 min. cardio, but I like the bands and use them for crunches, etc. They add more than strength training: they add stability. Keeping the cords taut might help some people with balance issues feel more secure. I have not had any trouble with the stepper sliding around, but it’s not a bad idea to place it on a yoga mat, just in case. In retrospect, it might sound like I don’t really like the machine. I do! This little guy slides under the couch or bed, and the bands are easily detachable for other forms of exercise. I get a great workout while watching a movie or the news. I live in a small place on a tiny island, where winters are long and bitterly cold. This stepper is a small and inexpensive alternative to a giant elliptical trainer, and I wish I had bought it sooner… especially since it kind of validates all the TV-on-DVD I watch lately. My brain might be rotting, but my bottom is gonna be fabulous! UPDATE: The squeaking has subsided, and I continue to use this machine regularly. I purchased a heart rate monitor, and was surprised to see that the calorimeter on the machine was pretty close to the one on my wrist, which is calibrated to my weight, age, etc. One thing I did notice is that I HAVE to add upper arm stuff (weights or the bands) to get my heart rate up into a cardio zone. Remember that you can’t adjust the difficulty on the machine, and it gets easy after while. It’s a good idea then to keep going along with something in your hands to really get your heart pumping. The bands are great now that I’ve tied some knots in them. I still love this thing. It was a great purchase.

    I have had this stepper for a few weeks now and I have been happy with the quality. It is very sturdy and well built. It does tend to squeak when I begin using it but will quiet down once it is warmed up. I find the workouts challenging but fun because I use it in front of the television. I recommend this for anyone wanting a good workout without any fuss.

    So far, in the month and a half I have owned this stepper the metal chain has snapped twice. The previous stepper I owned lasted two years. If you have any intention of using a stepper on a regular basis, do not buy this one.
    -Stephen

    My husband reviewed this stepper a few weeks ago after we’d had problems with the chain breaking multiple times. After getting a third replacement chain, we were able to use the stepper two whole times before a piece of the welded metal under the pedal that holds the chain snapped off completely, rendering the machine totally useless. As this piece isn’t a replaceable “part,” the company won’t do anything for us. This product was a complete waste of money, not to mention time spent trying to get it to hold together long enough to use it!
