Stair Climber

My gym just got 2 stair climbers. I was all excited to try one out yesterday but I walked up to it - its about 15 feet high and I got scared and ran back to my eliptical machine.

Are they scary or am I just a wimp?

In regards to Vagazzling: They just want to get into the goods without worrying about getting scratched up by fake crystals. ~spring1onu~

    :lol: I'm sorry for laughing, but are the treads like an escalator's? The ones at our gym are like this & the treads are too narrow for my long feet so I have to climb them sideways or it feels like my feet are getting sucked down. :lol:

    they are a little scary . . . partly because they can make me so breathless and give me that 'feel the burn' feeling in my rear!
    and they're so old--they remind me of bad high school experiences.
    i tried one a month ago or so and had fun with it, though. i think for me choosing a medium level helped, so i wasn't immediately exhausted but could keep at it for a while.

    YES! and the darn thing is about 400 feet high! I keep gazing at it but it intimidates me! Tomorrow I will try it!

    They are intimidating. And it's no joke the treads try to suck my shoes in. I refuse to use the things.

    I used this yesterday. OMG - it kicked my butt for one thing and I guess my legs were getting tired because I kept bumping my toe against the step. But my feet did not get sucked into it.
