For nearly 30 years, the StairMaster StepMill has been called the toughest workout in the gym. And since climbing stairs is widely recognized as one of the most efficient and effective cardio and strength building workouts you can do, the StepMill is still considered by many to be the perfect exercise machine. Now you can bring that same toughness home with the new StepMill 3. TheStepMill is easy to recognize – it’s the piece of cardio equipment that looks brutal compared to all the others, with a revolving set of 6-inch stairs that closely duplicates the workout of actual stair climbing. Each time you mount the StepMill, the unit’s electronically controlled magnetic brake precisely controls the pedal descent, allowing a wide range of users to exercise smoothly within their comfort zones. The resulting step range of 26 to 162 steps per minute will strengthen your legs, boost your cardio, and challenge even the fittest of users. The new StepMill 3 offers the core mechanics of our commercial model wrapped in a stylish look and enhanced functionality to create a next-generation experience. The SM3 offers plenty of workout options, with such programs as Quick Start, Manual, Steady, Mystery Challenge, Build, Bell Shaped, Calorie Burner, Fat Burner, Heart Rate Zone Trainer and Heart Rate Intervals. The console allows you to track your progress thanks to the oversized and easy-to-read blue backlit LCD display window, which tracks your time, watts, calories, heart rate, level (1-20), floors/minute, segment time, floors climbed and workout profile. Additional features include heart rate pulse grips mounted to ergonomically designed handrails, automatic safety stop sensor at the rear of the base of the steps, reading rack, water bottle holder, and a 275-pound weight capacity. The new StepMill 3, which requires a minimum ceiling height of only 8 feet, measures just 46 L x 29 W x 73 H in, weighs 223 pounds, and carries an impressive home and light commercial warranty.
