Mini Stepper Reviews

#1 Xiser Commercial Mini Stairmaster Review

Xiser Commercial Mini StairmasterXiser Commercial Mini Stairmaster

The Xiser Commercial Mini Stairmaster is great for High Intensity Training, or HIT, and that makes it perfect for training for the fitness trends like CrossFit and Tabata .

Using the mini stepper can even help you get a better night’s sleep and make sure you are getting proper sleep hygiene.

In fact, regular use of a stepper exercise machine such as this can improve memory, posture, and metabolism as well as improve your physical and mental health.

I found that when I really pushed this machine, it was able to keep up with me and I felt completely stable on it. You’re meant to go fast, and do that high intensity training so you get your heart pumping and that is exactly what I was able to do.

The textured grips on the steps really helped my trainers grip so I didn’t feel as if I was going to slide off while I was pushing the speed.

This mini stepper may not look like much but it is a quality-made piece of machinery that is made in the USA. I think the Xiser is the best stepper exercise machine.

#2  jfit Under Desk Mini Elliptical Stepper

The great thing about this jfit portable stepper is that you can use it sitting down with it under a desk – comfortably – or you can use it standing up because you can adjust the angle at which the pedals sit.

I tried it both ways and was pleasantly surprised as to how easy it was to use both ways and also as to how easy it was to switch from one to the other.

Its easy to move around since it has handles to carry it from one place to another, and if you have to slide it out from under the desk, it has wheels! How awesome is that!

You can burn up to 300 calories just by sitting down at a desk, or even on your couch while watching TV or talking on the phone. I don’t think I’ve ever burned 300 calories so easily in my life, and that is really, really amazing!

#3 Stamina In-Motion Elliptical Trainer Review

The Stamina In-Motion is another mini stepper that can be used either sitting or standing. Of course, if you use it standing you burn a lot more calories, and I found that I did so quite easily by adjusting the tension knob.

Even with the tension quite high it was very quiet so I was able to listen to my music at my desk and I was able to hear the TV. I tried it while standing at the TV with the tension up and it was still fairly quiet.

The monitor screen tracks your progress so you can keep an eye on how well you are doing with your workout.

While it didn’t track everything that the Sunny machine did, it still did a very good job at giving me the information I needed.

I loved the fact that I could pedal either forward or backward on this machine. When going in reverse, you use different muscle groups and I definitely felt that when I used this feature.

Oh, and it also comes in three different colors! You can get it in the traditional black, or you can choose lime green or bright orange. Show off your personality and make it fun to work out!
