The Step360 is the latest piece of at home exercise equipment to hit the market. Claiming to be able to help you lose weight with it’s innovative new design it is another contender in the lose weight fast arena.
The Step360 is a step shaped in the form of a circle and it’s claim to fame is that it provides an unstable surface for you to workout on by using two air filled chambers which can either be fully inflated to give you a stable surface or partially inflated to make the step inherently unstable.
In theory this instability will make working out on the Step360 more challenging as more muscles will have to be recruited to keep you stable whilst working out. In practice I doubt this will make a lot of difference compared to a traditional step when it comes to fat loss.
What will make a difference however is that this step comes with a variety of workouts that if used will certainly help you in your fat loss goals. Unlike a traditional step this device looks like it could be a lot of fun to use in the home and will hopefully encourage it’s owner to actually work out instead of leaving it gathering dust under the bed.
It’s possible to attach exercise bands around the rim of this step which means as well as a great aerobic workout you can do strength training exercises like Bicep Curls, Chest Presses and Lat Raises which increases the effectiveness of this step.
The include workouts which include:
- Cardio Accelerator
- Love your butt and thighs
- Turn up the burn
- Tone up in 10
- Body sculpt blaster
- Speed slimming sculpt
The Step360 claims that it’s secret to fast results is interval training combining aerobic and strength training in the same workout. If done correctly interval training is a highly effective method of losing weight but must be done carefully particularly in an unconditioned person.
I quite like this product because it’s unusual and looks like a lot of fun to use.
Nice looking piece of equipment that looks well constructed and doesn’t have any moving parts to break. The workouts are based on interval training and combine cardio with muscle building which I like as a training method. Unlike other pieces of equipment you see on the market this isn’t a gimmick and is a lot of fun to use.
At $119 this step is expensive when you compare it to a standard step but then it does a lot more.
Having used the Step360 for the last few weeks I have to say I like it. It makes step more challenging and it’s a lot more fun. I think if you have the $119 and you buy it you won’t be disappointed.
