Backed up by a huge amount of scientific data and studies including
Harvard School of Public Health: A study of over 7,000 people found that the more intense the exertion, the lower the risk of heart disease.
Physical Activity Sciences Laboratory, Laval University, Ste-Foy, Quebec, Canada: Compared to treadmills and hour-long aerobics classes, Burst Training helps you burn fat more efficiently and quickly.
Department of Human Health and Nutritional Sciences, University of Guelph, Guelph, Ontario, Canada: Moderately active women (somewhere between sedentary and Olympic athlete) lost an impressive amount of fat doing just two weeks of High Intensity Interval Training.
School of Engineering and Physical Sciences, Heriot-Watt University Edinburgh, Scotland, UK: Young males who did HIIT substantially reduced their risk for type 2 diabetes.
Department of Kinesiology, McMaster University, Hamilton, Canada: For people with type 2 diabetes, Burst Training can improve blood sugar levels and reduce risks for diabetes-related complications.
What is the difference between the Personal and Commercial (Pro) Model of Xiser?
There are currently two models of the Xiser available the personal model and the Commercial Pro Model. The Personal model is perfect for use at home to do your daily HIIT bursts.
The Pro model has more robust cylinders and can therefore be used by your entire family each day or for use in a commercial Gym or Institution.
If you would like do longer aerobic workouts using your Xiser then we would recommend you purchase the Pro model.
The Xiser also comes in two finishes, either Aluminium Polished or Black Hardened Powder Coat.
The finish you choose is purely for aesthetic reasons.
How Durable is the Xiser Mini Stepper?
The Xiser Pro Mini Stepper is practically bullet proof. We manufacture it from Aircraft Grade Cast Aluminium Alloy that in exceptionally strong and lightweight. There aren’t any welded joints so no weak spots on the frame. The Cables that attach the pedals to the frame are the same Aircraft Grade cables that are used to control the flaps on airplanes, and the patented hydraulic piston system is a precision engineered, maintenance free sealed component. There really is no comparative product available on the market anywhere.
What about the Stability of the Xiser Mini Stepper?
The Xiser is longer than any Mini Stepper you may have seen. The reason for this is that it has been designed to be biomechanically correct and the extra length and step height are the perfect dimensions to maintain optimum stability of the unit while stepping. You can see a demonstration of this in the videos on what makes the Xiser Mini Stepper Unique.
Can you adjust the feel and resistance of the Xiser?
Yes, you can adjust the cylinder resistance by turning a small knob to one of three settings – Either – High resistance which would be best for a walking pace, Medium Resistance which you would use for moderate aerobic stepping and low resistance which is for use when doing HIIT training.
On cheaper steppers the oil in the cylinders is compressed which gives them quiet a spongy feel, and you cannot adjust the setting.
The Xiser with its patented Hydraulic System uses a silicone-based fluid that travels from one cylinder to another while stepping which gives a natural and smooth and study feel. It is the only mini stepper on the market that has this system.
When will I start to see results?
As you can imagine, your results will be proportionate to the amount of discipline you have in using your Xiser on a weekly basis. The Xiser exercise protocol is very easy to fit into your day to day routine and is extremely time efficient.
We recommend that you start with the simple Xiser stepping routine which is 4 minutes per day, three times a week. Then you can progress to the Core 4 Training which will require an investment of time of 4 minutes per day 5 times a week – total of 20 minutes per week.
The wonderful benefit of HIIT is that you will be building on your foundation each day and burning fat when you are not exercising, which will provide you with a cumulative effect.

Can the Xiser Mini Stepper be used for Strength Training?
Yes, with the tutorial videos you will see that using hand weights is an effective method to add strength training into your routine and allowing you to train your upper body and lower. Also, as you progress we have outline a total body conditioning program you can follow.
How difficult is it to use the Xiser Ministepper?
The Xiser doesn’t have handles and there is a good reason for this. When stepping on the Xiser you automatically have to balance which builds your core muscles and increases your proprioception.
Some people may find their balance a little bit difficult at first, but you will adapt to this very quickly. If youdo have some difficulties you can plaace the unit near a wall and use your fingertips to maintain balance until you feel fully confident that you can balance using the correct form on the Xiser.
