purchased this to use as step for grandma to get into bed. the feet do not snap into the base, therefore the feet easily can move out from under. I would think this could be slightly dangerous in step aerobic environment.[...]
This is a decent product, however, as the other reviewer said it is not the same size as the ones you will find in a health club - the ones in health clubs are much longer, and also they have a rubberized no-slip top. This one has ridges in the top to keep from slipping, but it is just the green plastic.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
This item is about half the size of a normal step system. They don't tell you that. I ordered the unit to be used as an exercise bench, but it's shorter than my back, so I can't use it. As a step exerciser, it seems to me it would be worthless, as you would have great difficulty goihng from the one at home to the one at the healh club.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
