I just hate how all workout gear seems made for those under 200 pounds and are fit already

i haven't done step aerobics in years. it is a great way to work the butt. i must say i do get frustrated when i see all the cheap flimsy sets that are out there. even light people could break them if they jumped on them.

Good for you on your weight loss and your continued effort!

When I started stepping (about 100 yrs ago...), my husband made me a lower platform out of 2x4s and plywood. It wasn't pretty, but it was "customizable" and it got the job done.

I looked at bunch of the ones on amazon and the highest weight capacity I found was 300 lbs. Which sucks. Maybe you could try something without the risers until you can find one that works for you. I have trouble with step aerobics because of an old injury, but I recently got the Leslie Sansone Ultimate Collection dvd, and love it. It's more like aerobic walking.

Wow - good for you on the loss! That is amazing! I can't comment on where you can find the risers - at fitness1st.com they have a step that says :

Weight capacity platform only is 300 lbs
Weight capacity platform on risers is 500 lbs

I don't understand how the platform would hold less than platform but maybe you could contact them and find out. They are a bit pricey though. Good luck and awesome on your progress!

I'm somewhat interested in doing step aerobics at home. I know I look like a fool working out-I can barely keep up with the videos I do have. Point is though I'm trying, and I'm moving and it's helping. But anyway, I'm interested in adding step aerobics to the mix.

I'm currently hovering between 420 and 434 pounds (depending on how much water I'm retaining....) and I'm down from my all time heaviest of 508. Yea! But anyway..where can I find risers for step aerobics for my size? Not looking for anything fancy or spendy but just something that won't collapse under my weight. Thanks!
