Chris: Welcome to the Cardio Stepper. The Cardio Stepper is a machine designed to give the users a cardio vascular work out while also exercising the quads, the glutes, and also the hamstrings, and calves.
[video: scene switches to Chris kneeling by the Cardio Stepper pedals while the man stands on the side of the system.]
Chris: This piece of equipment comes with an adjustable dial to change the resistance So it’s important before you start to make sure the resistance is at a level that feels comfortable. And to change the resistance you’re going to want to turn it clockwise to tighten it and then turn it counter clockwise to loosen it. So before the user starts using it they’re going to want to adjust their resistance. Find a resistance level that they want to use and then step onto the Cardio Stepper.

Chris: To begin the user will grab onto the handle and begin stepping up and down.

[video: the camera switches to a front view of the man as he looks straight ahead while stepping up and down.]
Chris: Continue this exercise for about twenty to forty minutes to get a good cardio vascular workout.
Otherwise to get a good warm up you only need to do this for about ten minutes and then go on the rest of your circuit.
