Stairclimbing has a number of important benefits:
Stairclimbing burns more calories at slower speeds and lower impact rates than almost any other activity on the planet. Each gentle step burns more calories than walking. In fact, stairclimbing at only 1 mph burns as many calories as running on a flat treadmill at 6 mph! Slower speeds, minimal impact and high calorie burn – what more could you ask for in a cardio activity.
Because you must lift your body weight with each step, stairclimbing is highly metabolic and burns a lot of calories in a short amount of time. Quicker workouts means less time for you to reach your goals, and more time to get other things done!
Stairclimbing is a natural movement – it improves your functional mobility, strengthens your core and makes everyday tasks easier to do. Take longer hikes, climb taller monuments on vacation, last longer on dog walks with your family. Stairclimbing is celebrated by athletes, trainers and physical therapists because it can not only improve your body, but it can also improve your life!
