The Resurgence of Stepmills - Matrix Fitness's Climbmill Lineup
In the peak of their popularity in the late 90’s and early 2000’s it was difficult to go to a fitness facility and not find stepmills. They were a very popular machine on cardio floors allowing users to have a never ending set of stairs in a very small space with adjustments at the tip of their fingers. Stepmills began to lose some of their popularity in the 2000’s for many reasons; elliptical market advancements & popularity, improvements in treadmills cushioning, cost of ownership, and reliability of the product.
Today stepmills are resurging in popularity and perhaps nobody is offering a better product than Matrix Fitness and their Climbmill lineup.
