Limited in space but still want a great cardiovascular workout? Look no further than the Stamina InStride electronic stepper, which offers a footprint of only 12 inches wide by 16 inches long. As a result, you can use your InStride stepper just about anywhere--in front of the TV, while on the phone, in your sunroom, outside on the patio, or even at work. The InStride stepper is even small enough to toss into a workout bag and take on vacation. The stepper is equipped with two hydraulic cylinders that create a stepping motion similar to those of commercial stair steppers. As you step, you work your calves, thighs, buttocks, and core while boosting your cardio, helping you burn calories and fat. The InStride's battery-operated multifunction fitness monitor, meanwhile, times each workout and counts the number of steps, so you can stay motivated and on track to reach your fitness goals.

Construction details include a steel frame and wide, textured foot pedals for stability. The InStride, which weighs 20 pounds, carries a one-year warranty on the frame and a 90-day warranty on parts.

About Stair Steppers
Stair steppers continue to be popular options for home exercise. They offer the same benefits as running stairs, but with the "any time, in any weather, without having to leave the comfort and safety of your home" convenience. Stair steppers don't take up much space, require moderate balance and coordination, and can provide an effective workout for all levels of users, from beginners to serious competitors.

Following on the heels of treadmills and exercise bikes, stair steppers took their first step towards fitness machine success in the early 1980s. Like most exercise equipment, stair steppers have come a long way technically speaking. For example, advanced computers on most new models allow users to track their vitals at a glance. However, the most crucial benefits of stair steppers remain the impacts of cardiovascular and muscle tone fitness. Stair steppers continue to offer an exercise that is less jarring than treadmills, but more intense than elliptical trainers.

Customer Reviews:

  • IT BROKE TWICE!!!
    This product is not worth the savings at all. I weigh 215 lbs. and it says it has a limit of 250 lbs. NOT AT ALL, it broke twice. The cable around the wheel snapped both times. Each stepper only lasted about two weeks. Stear clear of this product at all costs. The only good thing about this experience is Amazon did replace it fast, the second time I gave up on this machine and sent for a refund. ...more info
  • Broken after not quite a year
    Although the stepper is a little noisy, it worked fine until the metal cross bar that provides tension for the pedals broke.
    It's an inexpensive product, and you get what you pay for....more info
  • Small footprint....great price
    This unit takes almost no space and yet provides an adequate cardo workout for me. Granted, I'm not training for the Ironman competition; But for the "average Joe" it serves well!...more info
  • Cheap workout
    Decent stepper and for the money it's a decent work out. The only drawback was that it would make this horrible squeaky noise after 30 minutes of use. ...more info
  • A. Kim
    This stepper is good to have around if you want to do quick cardiovascular exercise.

    Setting up was easy and straightforward. Like the other reviewers have noted mine squeal too. You will feel initially heavy resistance when you start stepping but that will ease as the machine get warmed up which is good thing because you cannot adjust tension on this stepper.

    I feel this stepper is good to have around for people who want to do some exercise (which is better than being a couch potato) or spend more money on gym. If it breaks then I'll just order another one but I doubt it. After several months of daily use it is still going strong. :)

    Edit: After daily usage the cable finally broke so I will have to order replacement.

  • Good for quickie workouts; too flimsy for anything more
    The space-saving design is a lifesaver, but with that comes flimsy construction as others have mentioned. I used it regularly for just under 90 days, and by regularly I mean 3-4 times a week for 20-30 minutes each. The workout was great! However, at just a few days shy of the 90 day warranty the cable broke. I requested a new one and never received it (2 months later), even after calling the company who told me it would be in the mail. Definitely would not recommend unless you just use it as a backup source of exercise maybe once a week....more info
  • cheap product
    for 30 days, no problem, then it brakes. 1st the cable broke and it took the company 20 days to replaced, then the screw stripped and it took 10 days to replace it. then the cable broke again and it was out of stock and back ordered for 30 days. It's not good to have a product you can not use because the parts keeps braking. The company Stamina is small and dont have the parts to back up their products. This product is made cheap that's why the parts keep braking. ...more info
  • broke down

  • This one you will really use!
    This product is easy to use and very effective. What's best -- it is really light and small so you can put it wherever you want -- it's great in front of the TV! It is very sturdy and simple in its design. This product provides a great work out and is fun and convenient to use. I highly recommend InStride! ...more info
  • Not Bad but Not great
    I bought this stepper back in April. I found that I would definitely be sweating after using this stepper. It does give you a good workout. The problem is that after a few uses it did start to squeak, which could be a bit annoying. Also, the cable just snapped on me today. So needless to say it is not the best built product. ...more info

  • Great Workout for Little Room and Money
    While I have only used this a few times so far, each time I've used it for only a few minutes, my heartbeat would start racing... which is great, because it shows you can get a decent cardiovascular workout without trekking out into the cold or paying a lot to go to a gym.

    I have very little space and a treadmill is just not an option... so this is a great alternative. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because you can't adjust the resistance of the steps, which would be ideal. But the resistance is just hard enough to make it a workout... it's not too difficult (it took me a couple tries to realize if you step faster it's easier and a better workout.)

    *WARNING: If you are over 250lbs, don't buy this! The instructions say that it will not support anyone 250+ lbs... just thought you guys should know beforehand....more info
  • bad luck with the stepper
    I loved my stepper for about two months - it's small and compact, the workout was great - and then it broke. I then ordered a replacement part, which came in worse condition than the one I was replacing. My stepper was fantastic when it worked but I seem to be having bad luck with it.

    One other small problem - it squeaked quite loudly....more info
  • Great price for good workout
    I am very happy with my purchase. I got it for a great price before the holidays. I've used it almost everyday since. It's a great machine to use when you're crunched for time or while you're watching TV. It provides a pretty good cardio workout and is easy on the knees. Two issues: 1) that it does make a squeaky noise, but it's really not too much of a nuisance; and 2) I wish the display wasn't so sensitive as it will reset itself if you press it a little too hard. Overall, it's a great purchase for the money, especially if you like to have the convenience of working out at home and tire easily of other workouts. ...more info

    I love it. It's portable and very convenient. Easy to use and set up. It was very inexpensive and we will be purchasing another one. ...more info
  • my wire broke too
    my wire broke too. I weigh under 180 pounds and the wire broke after about 3 months of use. After reading all the similar reviews it seems this product needs to get a new design with a stronger wire. Until this gets sturdier, I wouldn't recommend. ...more info
  • Good equipment for small place
    Being a 3 years old boy's father with a full time job, I do not have any free time go gym but still want to do light excerise daily. Mini Step seems the way to go.

    This mini step seems strudy and the digtial display is a big plus too.
    I use it around 15 minutes a day (2 weeks now) in my house and it does not have any problem and make any noise yet.

    It really save my money, time and space. ...more info
  • Sturdy Mini Stepper
    After researching many mini steppers, I settled on this one. It has met my expectations being sturdy, easy to set up and use, and gives a wonderful workout. It operates silently so I can watch TV while I exercise. As I am not very heavy, I cannot imagine needing a harder workout! A good product....more info

  • The best stepper!
    This stepper is absolutely perfect! I was looking for a stepper with strong resistance, a timer and step counter, and one that is sturdy and well constructed for a good price. Honestly, this stepper does all of that and much more. It has great resistance, but if you are looking to change resistance, this does not do that. The workout is also great. Honestly after 100 steps you can really feel it working. I have been using it roughly 5 times a week, 1000 steps each time and I can already see and feel a difference in my legs (thighs and calfs) and but. The lower body really responds well to this stepper and things are just tightening up! The other great thing about it is that you have to balance yourself and stand up straight without depending on handle bars (this is very easy to do)making it a better workout all around. Sometimes there is a soft sound, not a squeek, I really dont know how to explain it, but it is so minimal that I dont even notice it and it does not happen all of the time, but just to be clear it will not wake anyone up or disturb anyone. I am so happy with my purchase. The price is great and the product is worth so much more than the cost. It is definetly worth the buy! ...more info
  • Works very well
    It works very well so far. I've only had it a month. I weigh about 120 so I have to get it going, but it's a good workout. I used it watching TV. ...more info
  • Wouldn't recommend
    Not good - too hard to press down. If I utilized steppers before and this one was the worse one ever....more info
  • Verry Good Overall
    Well built and sturdy. Can be a very good workout once you get used to the motion. I recommend using some sort of resistance tubing or bands as this increases the intensity of the workout and works the upper body more. It is fine for me as a 190 lb. male but would be nice if it had some sort of variable resistance. Very good value....more info
  • Hey, its pretty good, eh
    It feels quite sturdy and safe and I am using the thing. I would suggest it as an item to add variety to your aerobic exercise, not as your only aerobic activity. I has started squeaking a bit after a month's use. It comes and goes. It can probably be lubricated but I have been too lazy to try that yet. Happy stepping....more info
  • Work out Starter
    This Stair Climber is Great. it is on the Bulky side but if you are trying to get started on an exercise plan, this is a great start. You have the ability to work out of the comfort of your own home and work out in front of the TV if you want to. I love it...more info
  • Design Needs Improvement
    I used it daily for a month and found it good for burning calories. The noise is a little irritating and then the cable broke. I ordered a replacement cabl, installed it myself and three weeks later it broke again. I'm looking for something more durable. This would be a great if the manufacturer would correct the design defects....more info
