StairMaster 4600PT Stepper 4600CL Stair Climber
At first glance the Freeclimber from Stairmaster does not really look like much with a small footprint and features that aren’t exactly large. However, this tiny masterpiece is built tough with steel and polymers which can support users up to 350 pounds. Unlike many stair climbers Stair Master uses an alternator and chain drive system to control resistance versus the traditional hydraulic resistance.
This machine comes with the option of three different console screens two which are 10 inch touch screens (one with a TV tuner) and one with a backlit LCD screen which is what you would expect from this and most other cardio machine. Each console is easy to use and gets you where you want to go with minimal effort but the touch screens are slightly easier to navigate.
All of the consoles come with 10 built in programs and two fitness tests to ensure your workouts remain challenging. It doesn’t come with a lot in the way of extra features but it does include a water bottle holder and hand and wireless heart rate monitors.
