The Air Climber is one of those fitness machines that you can find promoted to you late at night when you just can’t seem to sleep. It was developed by Brenda Dygraf who is known for being a presenter of numerous fitness machines. In this review of the Air Climber, I want to help you make an informed decision about it and see whether it really works as well as it should and whether you should get it for yourself.
Read this review for pros and cons and other pieces of information you need to know about this machine…
How the Air Climber Works
The Air Climber is a simple stepper that has two air springs at the bottom that provide resistance and bounce. The air is supposed to give you an impact free workout. In addition, you can connect two rubber cables to the sides of the machine and hold them in you hands for both stability and to do various workouts with them. This helps you get a fuller workout with this machine as you can train your arms as well as your legs at the same time.
This device is supposed to give you a cardio and strength workout at the same time. You get the cardio element by stepping on the machine and you get a strength workout with the rubber bands.
You also get a DVD with Brenda Dygraf that goes over various workouts you can do with the Air Climber and these do increase in intensity over time. You also receive a small eating plan manual that’s supposed to help you eat right in order to achieve better results.
The Air Climber Promises, Refund, and Warranty
The Air Climber official site promises the world. You’re supposed to get a full body workout that will tone your legs, upper body, and abs. You will also burn a lot of fat and lose weight fast. In fact, the promise is that you will lose 10 lbs in 10 days or your money back, but we’ll get to the guarantee in a moment.
The device is supposed to be an easy way to train at home which will help you lose fat without the hurtful impact of running or walking, or using a regular stepper.
The price of the Air Climber is $119 if bought in a single payment. There is also a trial offer for $14.95 which lets you have the machine for 30 days at home to try it out. However, you do need to pay the Shipping and Handling costs which are $24.95 (as far as I know). Should you decide to return the machine in the allotted trial period, you will not get this money back and will actually have to pay for the shipping back as well. So, a trial will actually cost you well over $14.95!
If you don’t return the machine, you will have 3 additional payments of $39.99 to pay in total. So, you do the math. The machine costs over $100.
There is a 60 day money back guarantee regardless of the trial period but you need to pay for the shipping on this both to you and on the return so it’s not exactly a 100% money back guarantee.
The warranty period is 60 days in total which is not a lot and signifies that the product manufacturers probably know about how flimsy the Air Climber is. In addition, should you need to have the machine replaced or fixed, you need to pay the shipping cost to the manufacturer and back to you. It’s probably easier to just buy a new one. This is hardly encouraging. In addition, Air Climber reviews on Amazon show how this machine is far from durable.
Air Climber Pros and Cons
- Very easy to use.
- Lightweight and portable.
- Has a nice workout DVD and the workout cables are a great addition.
- Air Climber customers complain a lot about how the product tends to fall apart quite quickly. This won’t last you a long time if you use it regularly.
- Makes promises which are over the top.
- Does not give you a lot of resistance so this is a machine for beginners only.
- Pricey for this kind of machine.
The Air Climber is a nice machine to use at home. However, the workout it delivers isn’t very intensive and the machine itself is cheaply made and won’t last for a long time. Should you use it, make sure to also invest in a more sound eating plan to make sure you really burn off fat. I recommend the Diet Solution program by Isabel De Los Rios
