This is all plastic, won't break down enough to fit under the bed, doesn't feel that sturdy.

Received the roll 1 day earlier than estimated - Good. After unrolling, placement and evaluating it, decided that I needed a 2nd roll. But when I went to the site, the solid black color was unavailable, at any lengths. Turns out that once an item is out of stock, it's unknown when it would be restocked - Bad. So, I'm stuck with an incomplete flooring job that will have to wait. Which is why I went across the board with average ratings. I did not want to out-right order both rolls right out of the gate, not knowing if it was going to work for me, but I also can't fault the product either. This flooring does not give, so it should stand up to exercise equipment nicely, but might be hard on ankles and knees if one was thinking of doing aerobics or jump training. For what I wanted to do, exercise area in the basement (concrete floor) for a bike trainer, solo flex and weight/band stands, it should work out fine. If I ever get it finish and in use, I'll see if I can add to this review.

I received this product quickly and in great condition. The plastic is not as thick as I was hoping, but it will still do the job. I am using the steps with children so I actually think it will be perfect for them (it's light & smaller than other types of steps). I am very satisfied with this product.

the wider side provides good spacing for all your needs.

I am a beginner "stepper" and this is the perfect step for me for the price.

I purcharsed this for my 85 year old mom who was using two small pieces of 2x6 to step on to get into the tub. I feel this is much more stable and just the right height for her to get into the tub/shower safely.

This isn't a complicated item. It's ready to use right out of the box. I don't expect it will break any time soon.

The stepper really does a good job of keeping my legs flexable. I use this to keep my legs strong during the winter months and the super hot summer in Texas.. A******

Packaging was good, arrived in a timely manner, but I was expecting the step to be longer for some reason. This is probably my fault for not really measuring out how long it was so that I could get a good idea of what I was ordering. Next time, i'll definitely do that.

This was exactly what I wanted. Adjustable height and stable so I don't fall off. It was shipped really fast!

For the cost, these are a good value.The slip pads on the bottom are quite small and don't really work to hold bench in place on hardwoods so you will need pads beneath them.The plastic on top is hard, no rubber, so hands hurt if using them for lots of push ups or arm work.

It is a litle stiff but I will do just fine on it. I really am glad I purchased it. It was a great buy and in time it will help me lose weight and feel better. It is an easy piece of equipment to have and store. Thank you so much and God Bless Overstock always. Kudos A great place to shop and great customer service.

I have a florida room off the kitchen. The deep step down is murder on my knees and back. So I bought this to use as an extra step. It works like a charm. Now I go into that room all the time instead of avoiding it like the plague. I have bought hundreds of things from O but I would say this was one of the best purchases ever. Plus I am very heavy and the floor in the room is Cuban tile. The step is very strong and it has nonskid feet. Just perfect! You can even adjust the height about 3" but I did not need to do this.

Best price online anywhere AND the addon steps store INSIDE the bottom of the step. It is small but very sturdy and does not take up a lot of room. I am very happy with this!

Size and height are fine. Product is okay, but not great. The one plastic adjuster to make it higher does not snap in properly. You have to play with it to get it to right. You get what you pay for.

I'm enjoying the aerobic step very much. It slides under the bed so it is convenient to get to and easy to store. My shipment arrived promptly and I'm very happy with the whole process of shopping with Overstock.com

I really like this step. Its not to high, and its not too low. It could be slightly wider, and longer. The one thing I really dislike is that it REALLY hurts my hands when I do tricep dips, etc on it.
You know it's important to stay in shape, but you may be unsure of how to choose the fitness and exercise equipment that will help you reach your goals. This exercise equipment buying guide is designed to help you select the home exercise equipment that will be the most helpful for you.
Getting in shape is important for your health, and a home gym is one of the best ways to reach your fitness goals. Joining an expensive gym can be a hassle, but you can avoid the crowds and save some money by creating your own home gym. Are you unsure of which pieces of home exercise equipment to buy? This guide has tips that will help you evaluate your options, so you can start your home gym that will help you reach your goals.
Using a rowing machine is a fantastic way to build muscles in your back, arms, chest and core. For people serious about home fitness, a rowing machine offers an intense aerobic and anaerobic workout that will build muscles and burn calories. Whether you are building a home gym or just want a piece of home fitness equipment to whip your body into shape, a rowing machine might be the perfect piece of gym equipment for you. Before you choose a rowing machine, it might come in handy to read a few rowing machine reviews, especially customer reviews. The main difference you'll find between one rowing machine and another is the resistance that simulates oars going through water. Some row machines use a combination of methods. Here is a quick rundown on the things you can expect out of rowing machines and the features you should look for before you buy. Pick out which one seems best for you and stick with it.
One way to make exercise more exciting is to exercise on a trampoline. Mini trampolines, or "rebounders," have become a very popular way to work some low-impact aerobic activity into your day. The soft rebound of the trampoline reduces stress on the joints while still working your muscles and lungs. Mini trampolines also let you stay inside while you work out, and they are one of the more affordable pieces of exercise equipment. If you're considering buying a rebounder for exercise, or if you already have one and aren't sure how to use it, keep reading for information on how to exercise on a trampoline.
Before you start considering athletic wear options, think about the type of exercise you'll be doing. If you've joined a gym or you're taking an aerobics class, then you'll need workout clothes that are comfortable when you're indoors. If you prefer doing yoga over running on a treadmill, then you'll need to look for clothes that let you stretch on the floor. Once you have an idea about the exercise you'll be doing, you can start shopping for the right women's workout clothes.
Get fit minus the unnecessary joint pain by using an elliptical machine. Developed to provide a full-body aerobic and toning workout that was also low-impact, the fluid motions of an elliptical machine protect your joints as you exercise. When you workout with an elliptical trainer, you get a lower body and upper body workout, thanks to the pedals and the moving handles. By avoiding injury with an elliptical workout, you'll be able to have a constant home fitness regimen that keeps you in shape and on the move.

Exercise is a great way to begin a healthy regimen. Step it up by power walking. It would be difficult to discuss tips on power walking without discussing the benefits. Power walking is a low-impact aerobic exercise with high-impact results. With power walking, you can get the aerobic exercise you need and you can strength train to tone muscles. Some of the benefits of power walking include weight loss, stronger muscles, better conditioning, more energy and a general feeling of good health. When considering power walking, here are a few things to be aware of.
Off-season rowers aren't the only ones rowing machines can benefit. In fact, a rower can help anyone aiming for overall fitness. The rowing motion involves several major muscle groups and will help you develop both your upper and lower body. More than that, though, rowers get your heart pumping and lungs working, providing a serious aerobic workout.
A heart-rate monitor is one of the most useful pieces of exercise equipment you can buy. And while it is very easy to strap on your heart monitor and measure your heart rate, you may not be getting the most out of your heart monitor. Depending on what benefits you want to get out of your workout, you will want your heart rate to be in a different range. Knowing the heart-rate target zones will help you benefit the most from your workouts. And many heart-rate monitors can be set to trigger an alarm when you reach or leave a heart-rate zone, letting you focus on your training.
Often used during exercise to increase resistance, ankle weights, sometimes called leg weights, are filled with sand or water and fasten around your ankles. The addition of ankle weights can take your ordinary routine to another level. When used during your aerobic exercises, ankle weights can effectively strengthen your core. If you enjoy power walking, leg weights and other body weights, like wrist weights, can increase the intensity of your workouts, letting you decrease the duration.
If you want to add resistance to your core training workout, strap on a weighted vest. Ideal for aerobic exercise as well as sporting competitions and training sessions, weighted vests can provide one pound to 60 pounds or more of added weight to allow you to perform sports and recreational activities under more challenging conditions. Some weight vests are designed with removable weights that are added to inside pockets, which can then be taken out as needed. Weight vests are designed for male and female athletes and sports enthusiasts alike as well as those just wanting to increase the resistance level of their fitness and core training during exercise.
Whether you want to increase general fitness or enhance sports performance, free weights can help you reach your goals. Common free weights like dumbbells and barbells as well as alternative free weights like kettlebells, medicine balls and wearable weights can help you create a serious workout routine that you can execute in your own home.
With shorter days and colder temperatures, it can be difficult to maintain your fitness during the winter. Holiday feasts don't help, either. Fortunately, it can still be easy to exercise through winter and achieve a healthy level of winter fitness. You just need to be creative; find a winter sport, act like a kid, change your winter fitness routine and stay positive.
