4200PT FREECLIMBER STAIRMASTER
Dimensions 104cm (L), 56cm (W) Weight 57kg
Contact 01908 267345, www.stairmaster.com
Stairmasters have too long had a bit of a “they’re for girls” stigma attached to them, but they are unique in the world of stepping because the pedals move independently of each other. On most steppers, when one foot is pushed down, the other comes up automatically. With Stairmaster there can be no cheating, so you get a thorough workout without the machine doing part of the work.
