The history of all Mini Stepper machines dates back to the results of two research projects conducted at the University of Alberta, Canada in 1977 by Dr. Juris Terauds, Professor of Biomechanics. Through this research came the invention of The Xiser Machine™ and the founding of Xiser Industries by Dr. Terauds.
The Xiser Pro Trainer Mini Stepper™ was unveiled by Xiser at the National Sporting Goods Show in Chicago, 1991 and shown again at the Atlanta Super Show in 1992.
The Xiser machine™ was recognized as the best value fitness innovation of 1992 by U.S. News & World Report (January, 1993).
The Xiser Pro Trainer Mini Stepper™, invented and patented by Dr. Terauds, is the most practical, efficient, and biomechanically sound stepping machine available today.
Thorough research of all aspects and parameters of stepping and the biomechanical efficiency of The Xiser Mini Stepper™ was conducted by world renowned experts in the field of Biomechanics.
These experts included Dr. Hans J. Gros of the University of Stuttgart in Germany, Dr. Iraklis Tsarouchas of the University of Teseloniki in Greece, Dr. Anthony Bauer of Lakehead University in Thunderbay, Canada, as well as Dr. Pierre Garvais, Dr.Stanley Plagenhoeff of University of Massachusetts, Dr. John Cooper of the University of Indiana, Dr. Mitsumasa Miyashita of the University of Tokyo and Dr. Juris Terauds of the University of Alberta in Canada (members of the International Society of Biomechanics in Sports www.isbs.org)
The Xiser Pro Trainer Mini Stepper™ was engineered to ensure correct hip and knee alignment, providing an optimal, impact free workout. The hands-free design promotes the development of stabiliser muscles and correct posture, thus improving balance.
The Xiser Mini Stepper™ is the only stepper available with true variable resistance. First, an adjustable valve enables the user to adapt step velocity/intensity in accordance with body weight. Second, the patented interactive variable resistance hydraulic system allows The Xiser Mini Stepper™ to respond to one’s every step (at any given intensity setting, the force exerted by the user will equal the force returned by the machine).
The Xiser Pro Trainer™ is constructed of an aluminum aircraft alloy that not only makes it durable but also extremely lightweight (14 lbs). The machines weight and portability makes for easy storage and enables the owner to take it where ever they need to be.
The best exercise machine is the one that will be used. In combination, The Xiser Mini Stepper™ and the Short Burst Exercise Program™ produce the most practical and efficient exercise system available on the market today. This system will allow everyone to achieve their essential fitness goals in spite of the overwhelming demands and time constraints of today’s society. “I don’t have the time to exercise” is no longer a valid excuse.
The Xiser Pro Trainer Mini Stepper™ comes with a genuine five year consumer warranty because at Xiser we realise that proper health and fitness requires a serious commitment.
