Marcy exercise equipment offers a couple step machines including its Impex MS-100 Pivot Multi Directional Stepper and Marcy MS-101 Hers Elite Pivot Stepper.
The Marcy Mini Stepper with Handle provides real-time feedback with its electronic display regarding calorie burn and strides per minutes.
This machine sits low to the ground, and is therefore not as obvious as a taller piece of equipment, such as a stair stepper.
