The idea of going to the gym every day to shed a few pounds is something I have never found to be particularly appealing. This being said I have never seen the point of investing hundreds of dollars in a treadmill or an elliptical machine I may never use. Not too long ago I sat up watching an infomercial on the Air Climber aerobic stepper. While I was impressed with what I saw on the television, I was still somewhat skeptical. At the same time I needed to do something to increase my level of exercise and ordered an Air Climber in the hopes it would work as advertised.
What the Manufacturers Claim
According to the manufacturers, the Air Stepper is the perfect piece of equipment to walk your way to a sexy, slimmer body. It is one of the simplest and most effective ways to go for a walk and get a full aerobic workout. For those who love to walk for exercise the Air Climber lets you add more resistance to your walk thereby increasing muscle tone, heart rate, and weight loss, all at the same time. If you have been looking for a way to add a little more challenge to your daily walks, the Air Climber may be just what you are looking for.

What Comes with the Air Climber?
When looking at various types of exercise equipment it is always nice to know what you can expect to see when you open the box. When the box arrived on my doorstep I carefully opened it to see what else came with my new Air Climber. Once the box was opened, this is what I found inside:
- Air Climber
- Resistance band with handles to increase aerobic workout
- Training DVD
- Training Booklet
While I had seen a number of reviews stating that the Air Climber looked and felt cheap, I found that when you consider the price, around $100 or less, you get a relatively sturdy piece of equipment. Overall the quality seemed very much on par with the amount of money paid, and it looked like there would be no problem supporting my weight during use.
Easy to Use
One of the reasons I decided to give the Air Climber a try is that I was looking for an easy way to get the exercise I needed. Given that all you have to do when using the Air Climber is walk, I didn’t think it would take long to learn how to use it. The air tubes are heavy duty enough to support my weight and to provide plenty of resistance during my workout.
I have to admit that I did not feel any real difference the first time I used it or least not until the following day. When I got up in the morning, the muscles in my legs definitely let me know they had been given a workout. While I really did not need the pain, it was a good sign that something was going on. In time the aches and pains went away as did some of the weight I have been trying to lose for a long time. The Air Climber offers a relatively low impact way to add a little extra to your daily walk, and lets you do it all in the comfort of your own home, just what I was looking for.

Final Thoughts – Does the Air Climber Really Work?
Overall I found the Air Climber to be just what I needed to kick start the weight loss I wanted to achieve. The general quality and feel seems to be on par with a $100 piece of exercise equipment. I like the fact it is light enough for me to move from one place to another in the house. The five resistance settings make it easy for me to choose the level of exercise I want on any given day. I am happy that I no longer feel the need to join a gym just to get in a little exercise each day, the Air Climber offers me the perfect way to do this in the comfort of my own home. I would recommend the Air Climber to anyone who needs to lose a little weight and tone up his or her leg muscles.
