Detailed Overview

The Sole SC300 Stepper  ($2,299) is a great two-in-one workout machine. This amazing hybrid  is a blend of an elliptical and a stair stepper – made for optimum cardio (heart rate) but created specifically to tone the thighs and butt. An effective and efficient lower body workout, all while reducing stress on the hips and knees.  It’s predecessor, the SC200 is good but the SC300, brings it up a few notches with the 20 levels adjustable incline. This residential elliptical stepper is of durable quality and the Sole brand has a solid reputation.

The adjustable incline is a good reason for investing in this hybrid; it gives 20 levels of resistance in steepness. You have the option of a workout akin to a light or rugged hike up the mountains through the programs; definitely an inspiration for meeting your fitness goals.  The articulating and adjustable foot pedals allow for all different gaits to work out comfortably while stepping – no more stiff awkward movements. This 9” white backlit display window makes it easy to view your progress or make changes during your workout. The standard console has a cooling fan, accessories tray/reading rack and speakers with audio jack (mp3).  Bluetooth technology allows you to link with various apps like the free Sole Fitness App. Solidly built, sturdy steel makes up the frame and supports up to 350 pounds; the SC300 actually weighs 165 lbs. and is 60” (H), 56” (L) and 18” (W), with rolling wheels.

It comes with 10 workout programs, pretty standard, not exceptional but still offers lots of options.

The warranty coverage is very good: Lifetime on the frame, five years on parts and electronics and two years on labor.

Other amenities are listed below.

The Bottom Line
