Benefits of NuStep for Arthritis Exercise
The NuStep recumbent cross trainer provides a full-body cardio and strength workout with a low impact stepping motion that is representative of walking up the stairs. The NuStep also allows you to control the stride length, as opposed to many ellipticals or bikes which have a fixed stride for all users. The NuStep’s low inertia startup and variety of resistance levels make it easy to customize your workout and increase intensity as you progress.
Exercise Equipment for Mobility and Balance Issues
For those with limited mobility or balance issues, the low step-through design options on many of our models and 360-degree swivel seat make it easier to get on and off the machine. The recumbent, seated position also provides a safe and effective workout.
