This stepper exercise equipment with resistance bands may look a bit pathetic since its as small as your microwave but if you don't have a lot of space its a good deal. I bought mine for $79 when my hubby and I lived in a miniscule apartment and I did not have time to go to the gym. Whenever my favorite comedy program was up I'd do 30 minutes of cardio and a bit of arm toning. It's not ideal but it's good enough. How about you? How did you find the mini stepper?
