StairMaster Gauntlet Stepping Machine with Backlit LCD Console
This beast of a stair stepper is everything you could want out and if you have the room for this model, it’s totally worth every penny. To start, it’s large with steel and polymer parts that support up to 350 pounds with no worry of it unbalancing. Unlike other steppers which use two pedals that move up and down this machine is like an escalator on a track which forces you to constantly move and is electronically controlled by an alternator.
Just like their other StairMaster machines the Guantlet is offered 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. The touch screen consoles come with built-in Landmark Challenge programs which allow users to climb some of the most popular landmarks around the world and feature three different fitness tests to constantly challenge yourself. The Gauntlet doesn’t have a lot of extra features but does provide hand and chest heart rate monitors as well as two large water bottle holders on either side of the machine.
