After 30 years in the gym, StairMaster’s dropped a few sizes. The company’s compact new StepMill 3 (SM3) fits easily under 8-foot ceilings and standard doorways, bringing StairMaster features, toughness and results into apartment buildings, medical offices, home gyms, hotels and spas. That’s good news for home users and businesses looking to bring in one of the highest per-minute calorie burns of any cardio machine, ellipticals and treadmills included. In fact, climbing at a rate of 1 mph on this stepper is as effective as running 7 mph on a flat treadmill. That’s before you figure in the strength benefits for major lower-body muscle groups like glutes, thighs, calves and back. It’s the same great high-intensity workout delivered by “bigger brother” stair machine the Stepmill 5 (SM5), with the same attention paid to going easy on your joints.
All of that is wrapped in a stylish look and enhanced functionality. The SM3’s standard features include a large backlit LCD display console that’s pre-programmed with over 25 workout combinations designed to keep the pursuit of your fitness goals fresh, challenging and motivating. You can track your activity and see your total workout time, calories burned, Watts produced, and floors climbed, while monitoring your heartrate with handrail sensors and the included Polar® chest strap sensor. You don’t need a big machine to get big results.

- Outstanding function and intensity
I love my stepmill. It feels almost like a gym version, is more compact, and functions very very well. In fact, I don't kick the back plate like I do on the Gym's 7000 older model.
It is gravity activated, has good alternator control (20 speeds), not suited for ppl less than 100lbs like kids because they do not weigh enough. For the price, I think it could benefit from a better screen - it feels a bit cheap and needs a number pad for entering information.
All in all, great purchase.

- Love the stairclimber!
I am so happy that i bought this machine. I no longer have to go up and down my stairs at home. This is a killer workout and I've lost a lot of weight by using it daily! Highly recommended!
