Davina Aerobic Step
Advantages: Sturdy, safe, easy to construct and it tones the legs and bum
Disadvantages: It can get a bit boring
I am not one for exercising but I increasingly need to do it. I don't enjoy it and it is last on a long list of things that I would choose to do so I look for ways to make it more different and interesting. I wanted to tone up my thighs and bum, and try to reduce the appearance of my pesky cellulite so I thought a stepper might be the way to. After a quick flick through my trusty Argos catalogue, I chose the Davina Aerobic Stepper which is part of the Davina McCall exercise range.
The product comes more or less ready to go in the box. You have royal blue body of the product which is a thick piece of plastic which a grey oval in the middle. All you have to do is clip the legs onto both sides which is simple to do. The product is 67cm long so there's plenty of room for your feet and a width of 27cm. It has a height of 15cm although this is adjustable. It is lightweight so it's easy to carry around and it is compact so it's easy to store away.
The product will cost you around £19.99. The price will vary greatly so it's worth shopping around. I got mine from Argos and it is also available from a range of online websites.
About the product
The product has been created to give you a cardiovascular workout. The product will work your legs and bum helping to tone and strengthen them. The product is adjustable to allow you to make the exercise easier or harder. The product comes with a little booklet which advises you on the difference activities that you can carry out using the stepper and their benefits, and provides diagrams so that you know what to do.
Using the product
I find that the product is safe and comfortable to use. I use it on the carpet floor of my living but it doesn't feel like it's going to slip from under me as I use it. The plastic, despite being lightweight, is very sturdy and doesn't bend or feel like it's going to give way beneath me, even when I am working really hard. The leg extenders also feel sturdy and don't wobble at all so it feels like a really safe piece of equipment. I find that the product is easy to use and I mostly use it in the standard way by stepping one leg up, then the other and going back down in the same way.
It's not the most exciting way to exercise but if you speed up you do need to concentrate harder so you don't trip. You can also watch the television as you exercise which makes it more interesting. If you work hard enough, fast enough and switch up the exercises then you will feel it the next day. If you continue to use it a couple of times a week, then you should see the effects. My legs and bum did get more toned and I was happy with the results. I have had this product for quite a while now and although I don't use it as much as I once did, it has been used a lot and it is still going strong so I would say that it is good value for my money.
This is easy to use, feels safe and sturdy and looks good. If you use it consistency, you will feel and see the results. It is lightweight and compact, and you can use it when you are watching the television. I am happy with this product and would definitely recommend it.
Summary: A good quality stepper which helps to tone the lower body
