With one hour of exercise on the MaxiClimber, users burn up to 500 calories, as opposed to one hour of riding a stationary bike or running on the treadmill, as claimed by MaxiClimber. The cardiovascular moves coupled with muscle toning of the arms, midsection and legs help shed fat.
Projected calorie burn totals are intended for users 240 pounds or less who assemble and use the vertical equipment properly. A digital calorie and step counter is available along with the purchase of a MaxiClimber. The counter calculates calories burned per steps taken on the climber and halts tracking when the user stops exercising.
