Escalate Stairclimber. One Machine. Countless Benefits

For toning and strengthening thighs, hips, core and legs Escalate workouts are very effective, especially when it comes to improving balance and agility.  Stairclimbing is low—impact and can be used by people of all ages—even working at a slow pace, you can still get a very challenging workout.

Using the Escalate Stairclimber has benefits from head to toe and if you usually run, stairclimbing can be a good change of pace in your exercise routine.  Stairclimbing exposes the legs, ankles and knees to less pressure from impact and offers whole body conditioning while reaping more aerobic and muscle—building benefits. Here’s just six reasons why—

1  Aerobic Conditioning

The key to aerobic fitness, stairclimbing on the Escalate will strengthen the heart and lungs.  Stronger lungs allow you to breathe in more oxygen, and a healthier heart can pump oxygen—rich blood more efficiently to all your muscles and organs.

2  Strength Benefits

In addition to cardio benefits, the Escalate can strengthen and tone your body, which is also good for your bones.

3  Active Ageing

Climbing stairs is part of every day life, it’s also a very natural movement for the body.  Weight—bearing exercises such as stairclimbing can help reduce your risk for osteoporosis.  Bones are living tissue, and stairclimbing helps increase bone mass— this is especially important as you get older, because natural bone loss tends to increase as you age.  Stairclimbing on the Escalate is a low—impact way to get moving— which basically means it's easy on your knees, ankles and back.

4  Scorch Calories

When you stairclimb for exercise, you burn twice the fat in half the time than running.  The Escalate is an efficient and effective tool in managing weight control.  A faster “climb” will burn more calories than a slower session however how many calories you burn on the Escalate depends on your speed, weight and gender— adjusting step height and incline will also add an extra dimension to power up workouts.  With 20 unique step heights to choose from with Intenza’s Escalate, climbers can ramp up programs according to their goals.

5  Build Core Muscle Strength

One of the most valuable Escalate benefits is that the machine helps you focus on your form while strengthening your lower back and abdominal muscles.  It may feel like only your legs are being worked, but the Stairclimber is actually exercising and benefiting your whole body.  Stronger core muscles help improve posture, prevent lower back pain, and reduce the risk of injury.

6  Go Upwards Instead of Forward

Like Intenza treadmills, the Escalate has a variety of settings to mix up your workouts.  You can program the number of minutes you want to exercise so if you’re just starting out, you can set the machine to climb for 5—10 minutes and work up from there.  Intenza’s forthcoming 450 i2 Console, on the Escalate, comes with a unique Landmark program to allows exercisers to train for, or challenge themselves, on some of the world’s most famous vertical marathon races.
