This purchase was an awesome addition to my morning routine. I hop on burn calories and work up a good sweat. I can only do 7 minutes b/c the resistence is hard but I'm working on buulding my endurance.

I wish it came with different level resistance cables
I bought this product because ever since I moved from a house with stairs to a 1 story house I have noticed my fitness level diminish. I thought this would be a great way to increase my daily activity and have a safer workout around kids than with my treadmill. However, I'm 5'2 and 180 pounds.. (proportionate, but obviously overweight) the steps are VERY hard to push down (and I consider myself having strong legs).causing my foot to slip off the grips, I can't imagine if i weighed any less trying to use this stepper. I definitely wish it came with different cables, ones with more give for the beginners. Otherwise, great product and I'll just have to use it more. the construction is nice & sturdy, assembly was as simple as it gets and was put together in 2 minutes. the digital counter is accurate with the steps. Little did I know that 50 steps only burned about 5 calories. LOL but it's ok I still felt the burn with every step after 50.
