As a plus size person, I needed a sturdy step that didn't cost an arm and a leg. This one fit the bill. My only problem with it is that the top has a pattern/tread that hurts my hands when I do floor work. I fixed the problem by covering the top in some of that non-slip rug backing/cabinet liner. Works like a charm. The DVD is fantastic. There's no annoying music, no peppy celebrity cheering me on - just a trainer giving simple instructions and modifications for beginner, intermediate, and advanced. Also, it's not your typical step aerobic workout - it's an interval training approach with a bit of yoga thrown in. While I *love* this DVD, if you're a die-hard step aeorobics fan you may want to use this as a once a week workout and get a more traditional DVD for daily use.
I've had this product for a few days, and so far I am really glad I purchased it. It is very easy to use, and it is stable and sturdy. Also, it comes with a simple workout DVD that shows you lots of exercises you can do with the step. The exercise DVD explains that the step has molded loop attachments so you can attach specially made resistance tubes to the step -- but you buy these separately if you want to -- they were not part of the package. The DVD explains this, so it's not like they were missing. You could use your own bands if you want as well. Overall, I am very happy so far and the price makes this a great value.
I am a HUGE step fan and this product is great- it's not that small (as other reviews state), it is sturdy, and not horribly multi-colored so it actually looks good if you leave it in the living room. I love it!
This step is fine for basics, but is smaller than gym step. Works for me just fine for using at home. If you're doing a lot of intricate step moves w/turns, this isn't the best tool. Otherwise, you can't beat the price.
I just purchase the product yesterday after reading the reviews. I've been wanting a Step for a LONG time, but didn't want to pay a fortune. I really enjoy this step-the way it is made it is NOT made cheaply. It is extremly sturdy! and the video is Great and another added BONUS that I didn't know is their is a way to add clip Resistance Tubes to the step. (those are sold separately). What a great feature. I would recommend this product HIGHLY. Also, I thought the size would be to small...Not at all. Perfect size!!!
This is a great price and product. I travel with all of my equipment so having these stackable steps are perfect. I was worried about the steps breaking down with heavier students but I'm not having any issues. Super happy with my purchase and glad I went with this step over the Zumba Rizer.
As an Occupational Therapist, I found this step to be a great help with getting older people into higher seated vehicles (trucks, SUV's). I work with a little lady who has a developmental disability and we can use it for her to help her get in my truck. It is wide enough for you to move your feet and it is almost impossible to flip over. Very Stable!! Also great is someone needs to have their feet supported when sitting at the edge of the bed or a chair.
It can fit right behind the front seat of my vehicle. Walmart really has a lot of items that can help people with physical challenges. You should set up a seperate department and show people how to be more independent.
Was afraid to purchase this because I exceed the weight limit. This is no problem. The step is solid as a rock. Great for workouts.
This product is very sturdy and a great value. I also like how the risers store under the step. My only complaint is that it is too short for me to lie down on it for strength training exercises, which is the main reason I bought it. If you are using it for aerobic exercises, I highly recommend this product.
Shipping was slower than I would like,but delivered without damage.Came with a 35-40 minutes dvd,which is good for beginner to intermediate fitness level people,or may be even some advance level people.My wife and I are beginners,and it got our heart rate up real quick,and were sweating like crazy in no time.We like it,it gives a good quick workout, we like the slower pace DVD,unlike the classes in the gym, we could not keep up with the pace all the times.We almost did not finish the last 5-10 minutes.The dvd is no too aerobic orientated,but still give a very good cardio workout and muscle conditioning.May be some people will prefer a faster pace,but we prefer a slower pace as we are not the most fit type,whom I think probably don't need this.The steps are just plain black plastic,nothing fancy but look like they are pretty sturdy.Only time can tell.If the price had been $20-$25,then it would have been a real good value.At $28,some may not think it is a very good deal.Therefore only 4 stars for value.
Purchased this item as a way to do some light exercising as i do not have time or money to spend at the gym. Product is working well beyond my expectation, as I lost 10 pounds in the first 2 weeks just by stepping!!
Sturdy, stable during use, adjustable height (4" or 6"), wide enough for safe lateral moves, light weight for moving it about. The six inch height is enough to give a good workout for me (74 y.o., 6 feet tall, 164 lbs.) with adequate repetitions, but I probably could benefit from another 2" of height. Priced 1/3 of prices elsewhere. Not available in store, but the on-line order was delivered to my local store in a few days for pick-up.
I thought the price on this particular step was unbeatable. It's BLACK and that was a big plus to me....most times they are purple, or pink, or girly colors......this is friendlier to the eye. It's big and gives you plenty of room to maneuver on it. It's PERFECT.....I will use it beyond my rehab period.....came with an exercise DVD. It's a great price, great product, I ALWAYS shop Walmart.com FIRST and with good reason!
I love this step. It's very sturdy. I weigh over 200 pounds and there is no give. I love that it comes with removable blocks so I can adjust the height.
This prouct exceeded my expectations because it came w/DVD giving beginner, intermediate and advanced instructions. It's a lot more than a stepper. It is a full body workout! I believe I will stick with this more than any other previously owned exercise equipment. I'm still very excited about it and plan to work hard on tighten my core area. I highly recommend this stepper. CB
I needed to exercise more with little time, so I decided an aerobic step bench in my kitchen might be the answer so that I could slip in several minutes of exercise every day. Searching all over the internet I found many step benches costing 50-70 dollars or more that even got bad reviews. Then I came across this Gold's Gym Aerobic step and the price was just right. I bought it based on the reviews I found at Walmart and was not disappointed. This bench is sturdy, well made and even wider than more expensive step benches. My goal of slipping more exercise into my day has become a reality and I could not be more pleased.
I'm a beginner in aerobics, and overweight, and this step turned out to be just PERFECT for me. It's a fun, non-stressful way to lose weight and build strength. The DVD is great and easy to follow.
Very sturdy, Supports 350 pounds with no problems with both 4 inch and 6 inch.
I have been using this off and on for the past 6 months at least 2 to 3 times a week and am glad I bought it.
i had both knees replaced and my therapist recommend that i get a step to work on bending my knees. the only problem i have is that the set of risers keep falling out. otherwise it works well. it is also 50 dollars cheaper than the other stepper i looked at. thanks.
This aerobic step by Gold's Gym is functional and does what it is designed for. I feel safe using it for step aerobics, it doesn't shift under me when I step on it, nor is the plastic a cheaper/flimsyier plastic, it is quite solid. The treads on the top are great at preventing your foot from sliding off while doing the step moves, and the rubber on the feet keep it secure on the floor (in fact, I can't slide it over with my foot at all on my linoleum floor if I don't have it position correctly to begin with). The only small issue I had was that the extra risers (to raise it another two inches or so) that are stored underneath the unit fall out while I am exercising with it. That isn't a big problem to me at all as they are still out of the way and I didn't discover that until I picked it up to put it away.
