Have you assembled your Teeter FreeStep but are unsure of how to set it up for your specific use?
To get a great FreeStep experience, first test to make sure that you have a smooth, linear pressing-down motion, just like when you are walking. Your knees should not go past your toes horizontally. If you need to make adjustments to get that smooth stepping motions, here are some quick tips:
Find the Perfect Seat Height and Angle
Lifting or lowering the seat adjusts your positioning on the FreeStep, changing the range of motion of your legs. The seat also offers 3 levels of recline. Take some time to try the various height and recline settings to find the one(s) most comfortable to you.
Change Your Foot Placement on the Pedals
The FreeStep has large pedals that allow for different leg lengths and foot sizes. We recommend starting with your feet positioned on the pedal closest to the top and then adjusting your seat height so that at full extension of your leg (downward motion of the pedal), your knee has just a slight bend (avoiding lockout).
Adjust the FreeStep Handle Length and Positioning
There is no wrong way to grab the handles when working out on your FreeStep. Stick to what’s most comfortable to you or switch it up to target different muscle groups. Check out our Freestep Upper Body Exercises to learn more.
