The Stepmill: The Premier Sweat Your Face Off Quickly Machine

9 Jun

Recognize this machine from your gym?  STEP right up and meet the stepmill.  I find that choosing this machine is the fastest way for me to feel like I’m dying at the gym.  Seeing the light at the end of the tunnel is a bit melodramatic, but what I mean is that I’m breathing heavily and sweating profusely in a matter of 5 minutes.  Of course, you can adjust intensity and resistance as not to feel the burn so quickly.  My personal preference though is to select a “Calorie Burner” or “Fat Burner” program and opt for hard-very hard intensity.  For me, the stepmill is usually that 15-20 minute warm-up machine in advance of a strength session as was the case today.  I have this thing with incorporating at least some cardio to work up a good sweat before lifting in order to feel like I got a great workout in.  I know the benefits of strength training are that it ultimately leads to burning more calories/boosting your metabolism, the obvious toning of the guns, among several other positives, but I just can’t let go of the getting a good sweat going via cardio element.  So, you get a good sweat and burn going, but you also can burn a lot of calories in a short period of time compliments of the stepmill.  Lastly, a perk I attach to is that this machine can provide you with a nice booty shape my friends.  Everyone is okay with having a nice butt.  Am I right?

In sum, I’d like to encourage you to stop walking by this machine at the gym if that is what you have been doing!  If you are a fan of this machine, know that it is fact that this baby is a gem and keep on using it.  I will caution that if you suffer a lot of joint stress, this could be a machine you will want to use sparingly compared to other cardio equipment like an elliptical or arc trainer.  Nonetheless, give it a try!
