What is a NuStep Recumbent Cross Trainer?

NuStep’s inclusive, low-impact, total-body design and wide range of resistance levels allow for a full-body cardio and strength workout. The seated (recumbent) position reduces the risk of falls. It’s not uncommon for a NuStep to keep running strong for 10 to 15 years, even in the most demanding, high-use environments. This is a comforting piece of information, with all the demands on budgets today.

Built at Ann Arbour, MI, USA, the complete satisfaction of NuStep customers is the NuStep team’s number one goal! NuStep is a highly inclusive exercise machine accessible to a wide range of users, from the physically fit to those with mobility limitations. As a result, NuStep has become the exercise brand of choice for countless hospital physiotherapy centers, cardiac rehabilitation clinics, senior living
communities and health and wellness centers across North America.

NuSteps provide evidence-based aerobic training that may help reduce hospitalizations, improve recovery outcomes, and enhance overall health and quality of life. With a low- inertia start up and multiple resistance levels, a NuStep user can customize the intensity of their workouts and track their progress over time.
