The Davina Aerobic Step:
Recently I went to the doctors with an ankle complaint and got sent to physiotherapy. Turns out I have Achilles Tendopathy which basically means that the tendon in the back of my ankle is weak an needs strengthening, in order to do this I have to perform what is known as eccentric loading which requires the use of a step (as I live in a flat and don't have stairs). I looked at my local Argos and online and this was the not only the only step I could find in stock in Argos but it was also cheaper than any that I could find on Amazon. This step cost me £20 and off I went and picked the step up, it came in a nice little box with some instructions for some basic exercises you can use the step for.
Constructing the step was pretty self-explanatory, in the pack you get the step and a couple of extenders that increase the height of the step. The step itself is a nice blue colour and doesn't look too bad (FYI it is about 20cm high). I haven't got any other steps to compare this one to but it does the job of allowing you to step onto it. I have tried using this step with trainers, with socks and barefoot and I have to say that it is not all that comfortable to use without your trainers on, the weight distribution on your foot on the hard plastic is not great so I would definitely recommend wearing some footwear. So I need the step for this eccentric loading, this basically means dipping my entire weight on my right (weak) ankle then lifting my weight back up on the other foot and then stretching the other ankle again and so on.
I am happy to say that so far the step is working for me and has survived my weight (which is more than it should be) going up and down onto it each day not only this but as a bonus the other ½ also enjoys using the step. Once I got the she knew straight away that she was going to get a step DVD, we got the stomp fx DVD and she has since been using the step to do routines, she also uses trainers but has also found the step very easy to use and we are two very happy customers.
Summary: It's a step
