"Affords many more benefits than running or walking." - Run Society

"Stairs are much steeper than most hills.  Indoor stairs have a roughly 65 percent grade, while Boston’s Heartbreak Hill is just 4.5 percent. That’s why climbing them accelerates your heart rate so rapidly and makes you breathe faster to take in more oxygen. This, in turn, improves your VO2 max—the maximum amount of oxygen you can utilize during intense exercise... A greater VO2 max means you can run harder and for longer durations." - Runner's World

"Whether you need a cross-training activity that will take your running to greater heights, want to lose weight on the cheap... or are just searching for the next challenge – stair climbing yields incredible results. - 


"A killer full-body workout. - Self Magazine

You’ll be hard pressed to find a workout that combines cardio, strength and calorie burning as awesomely as does stair climbing." -
