Brenda DyGraf Total Body AirClimber with Step Tracker & 2 DVDs
Feel The Burn!
Although I did have to use some force setting up the steps, that is why I give it a 4 star, this is a great piece of equipment. I am very pleased with this purchase. I am more motivated to spend my time on the Step Tracker than walking/running in the environment(s). And with it being less than 30 minutes a workout, how could you resist!!
A really nice climber
I received my AirClimber last week and used it right out of the box. I was really pleased with this item. I have had a manual treadmill I bought from QVC years ago and it was nice but it had given it's all so I needed a replacement. I love the size easy to store and light enough to use anywhere in the house. I think it give a real nice work out; yes it takes a few uses to get a rhythem on the machine, and it really helps to have your mp3 player with you but once you get going it has a very smooth action and it is very easy on ageing joints. When I bought it I read most of the reviews and it seems that people either really love this or really dislike it. Is it a full replacement for large aerobic equipment no but if you go in realizing that it is a compact climber that may need a little help with the bellows, something to this point I haven't experienced, I think you will find it to be a real effective purchase and will really like it. I would put one cavet if you have balance issues be sure to have a chair near you and better yet someone in the house when you first start using this. A little caution getting on and off is benificial to your overall enjoyment of the climber.

,magnificent air climber really has work for me strengthen circulation in legs
I LOVE MY AIR CLIMBER!!!!!!!!!! I am not one to do exercises; but I love this product. Since I am a senior citizen, I love the fact that the product came already assembled! That meant a lot.
For now, this is good enough for me to at least start an exercise regiment, and I love the air climber. When I saw the price at under $100, I jumped on it! I'm so glad that I did. So far, I'm enjoying it, increasing a few steps every few days.
Thanx for offering the air climber.
not 'blown away'
it does give me a workout, but one of the pedals is higher then the other. i cant get it to work right, but i'ts too late to return it, so i have to make the best of it.
For the past month or so I've been searching for an eliptical or a tredmill but I quickly realized how expensive they can be and how big they are. I really didn't have room for it. Then I saw the Airclimber on QVC's website and thought it would be prefect because of the portabilty, the cost is within my budget, and acts like an eliptical. I received my Airclimber two days ago. I've been using it everyday since. I find it very easy to use and it provides a great workout in less than 20 minutes of use. I use it during my favorite TV show and time seems to fly by. This is an excellent product!
Needed a low impact workout
this was very easy to put together and get going. the only thing I had wished, was that it was more stable while working out on it.
Calorie counter dont work
The machine itself is ok.. but the calorie timer/burner dont work.. it still counts and I'm not even on the machine.. for $80+ you get what you pay for.
Not For Me
I gave this a try for a couple of weeks before deciding to send it back. It is very bulky compared to other steppers. I didn't feel like I really got much of a workout and the height off the ground bothered me. I was constantly worried that I might lose my footing and tumble backward off it.
Not the best...
You wont get a killer work-out from this, but it can be used to supplement you workouts, at night or bad weather...
The major problem with this is, I have to get off of this and re-fill the air bellows every 3 to 4 minutes... It is not hard to do this, just frustrating to interupt your workout...
I'm happy with my stepper. I have read some of the reviews and yes, it is difficult to get air in the stepper initially. I almost sent mine back! But I read through advice and finally just pressed the button and pushed the steps all the way down first, then released the button. After that, I pressed the button and used force to pull the steps up, it took a few times but finally the steps were slowly filled. It takes patience!
This is a killer workout, even without the bands! I'm still trying to get through the first 20 minute workout and I break out in a sweat every time. I think the price was fair, worth it.
I can feel the burn!
I do love my Air Climber, although I only gave it 4 stars because of the tracker, it does not work so well. I have timed myself using the AirClimber, and if I am on it for 10 minutes, the tracker only says I was on it for 6 to 7 minutes. I then started looking down at the tracker, and at times, it is stopped and not tracking the time or my steps for 10 to 20 seconds at a time. But other than that I think this a great workout. I agree with other reviewers and recommend starting out doing 5 minutes and then increase your time. I started for the first week doing about 5 minutes several times a day to get in a total of 20 - 30 minutes a day. I love that I can take it anywhere in my home, and like others usually have it in front of the tv and watch the news in the morning, and my favorite tv show in the evening.
