NuStep for Health and Wellness
Regular exercise is one of the most important things we can do for our health and wellness. Evidence shows that exercise provides a host physical and mental benefits that contribute to an improved sense of wellbeing and quality of life.
At NuStep, we’re determined to enable as many people as possible to experience the life transforming benefits of exercise.
Improve Physical Fitness
Losing weight and keeping it off is a challenge for most people. Those with orthopedic issues or health conditions aggravated by excess weight face additional challenges – especially when it comes to finding exercise equipment to accommodate their needs.
NuStep recumbent cross trainers may help you overcome those challenges by providing a low impact, full-body workout that may lead to weight loss and increased strength.* The T6MAX, T5XR, and T5XRW all support users up to 600 pounds ensuring an effective workout. Our recumbent cross trainers can also help with your at-home rehabilitation or therapy.
Active Aging and Brain Health
Heart pumping cardio-exercise – like the kind you may get on a NuStep cross trainer – may reduce the risk of the three most common chronic health conditions for older adults: heart disease, hypertension, and Alzheimer’s disease. Studies show that exercise can help improve brain health and function.
Arthritis Care and Prevention
Exercise is vital for those with arthritis. It helps strengthen the muscles around joints, builds bone strength, increases range of motion, improves flexibility, and helps control weight – all of which reduce pain and stiffness.
Limited Mobility and Balance Issues
For users with limited mobility or balance issues, accessing and exercising on many exercise machines can be difficult or even impossible. The seated position on the NuStep cross trainer allows users to easily access the machine and exercise safely. For users with little to no movement in their arms or legs, the optional adaptive equipment makes working out on the NuStep possible.
Studies continue to show the multitude of benefits exercise may have for those living with neurological conditions. Users experiencing the resulting pain and physical limitations after a neurological event may find that exercise on traditional fitness equipment may be difficult. NuStep cross trainers offer an inclusive and adaptive full-body workout for most users, including those in wheelchairs.
All NuStep Cross Trainers Feature:
- Wheelchair-height seat that swivels 360 degrees, locking at every 45 degrees for easier transfers.
- Sturdy grab bars
- Locking feature to stabilize arms and legs while entering or exiting
Compatibility with our adaptive equipment for users needed added stability for their legs, hands or torso while exercising
