Pros & Cons
The Sunny Health & Fitness Twister Stepper is a portable workout machine made of heavy-duty steel, powered with 1 lithium AAA battery for operation and built-in resistance training. The stepper uses a dual adjustable hydraulic system to give the right amount of resistance for maximum workouts. The device creates a twist action which helps in toning thighs and buttocks, while moving up and down & side to side action will work on deep muscles and hard to reach places without putting stress on bones or joints. The exercise bands provides excellent upper body workout for the arms, chest, back and shoulders. Also, this compact equipment features over-sized footplates with slip-resistant surface for safe workout session. It has a built-in computer with LCD display showing total count, scan, time, calories burnt and rep count. It is advisable to use the stepper for 15 minutes each time, to avoid the overheating of hydraulics and damage it.
However, the reviewers report overheating of hydraulics/resistance tubes can lead to damage and squeaky noise. Also, some users felt adding hand weight gave a better arm workout than the hand straps, as the straps restricted the natural arm swing.
Overall, the Sunny Health & Fitness Twister Stepper gives a total body workout that tones and shapes while also boosting the coordination, balance and flexibility. This little, easy to store machine comes at an affordable price and is backed with 90 days limited manufacturer warranty.
