Step aerobic exercises may seem a bit outdated with all the new yogas, spinning, and pilates, in the gyms these days. But there's a reason they've maintained their popularity through the decades. For one, they work! Regular exercise with an aerobic step program has proven results. It boosts your energy levels, burns calories, sweats off inches, and gets the heart pumping. It also gets you out of the gym and lets you work out at your own pace, in the comfort of your own home. You're not in a huge class with a dozen other people, or twisted up into a pretzel in some awkward position for a half hour, hoping to get in shape. You're moving, sweating, and feeling the burn in your own home, with nothing more than an aerobic step, a workout DVD or video, and your drive to be better!
Aerobic steps are easy to use, but give you a huge variety of workout options. The concept behind it is personal resistance. Like walking up a ton of steps, you feel exhausted because you're constantly lifting your own body weight. Aerobic steps bring that theory into a constant-movement and varied exercise class. You'll do step-ups, step-downs, leg lifts, jumps, hurdles, and bends, all with simple step
exercise equipment. You can even raise or lower the step with additional risers for a more exertive workout!
Pretty soon, you'll have more energy every day and a deeper investment in your own continued fitness. When you take 50 minutes every other day to commit to a step exercise, you'll be less likely to snack during the day, and more likely to continue the healthy lifestyle. Make the commitment and soon you'll wake up to a better, more fit and healthy you in the mirror!

Would there ever be a reason to use an uneven number of risers.
By Customer Service on January 5, 2015
Answer:No. You need an equal number on each side. They need to be flat in order to be held together. You cannot create an inclined step with these risers.
