Exercise is a key part of keeping our bodies healthy as we age. Through the years, you might find yourself recovering from a knee replacement or struggling with back, joint or knee pain. In these situations, finding a comfortable yet effective way to exercise can be difficult. That’s where low-impact cardio machines come in.

Teeter FreeStep - Low Impact Cardio MachinesSimilar to the high-end equipment you would find in physical therapy, the Teeter FreeStepTM is designed to offer you a way to exercise without putting any strain on your back, knees and joints. When compared with the most well-known physiotherapy machine – both machines combine lower- and upper-body movement simultaneously to reduce loads on joints while distributing muscle exertion throughout the body. Does that mean that they’re equally beneficial to you? Not necessarily!

Here is a look at how the new Teeter FreeStep improves on the already plentiful benefits of the most well-known low-impact cardio machine you would find in physical therapy clinics:


A workout that never changes becomes a boring workout. Just like you would change the route you walk once in a while, being able to introduce changes to your home cardio workout is critical. While both machines let you change the length of the handles to your comfort, only the FreeStep lets you adjust the handles to 8 different positions to target and strength-train muscles in the arms, chest, and back.


Even the entry-level model of physiotherapy machines still costs $3,795 compared to the $749.99 price of the Teeter FreeStep. For the cost of one physiotherapy machine, you’d be able to purchase a FreeStep for yourself and four of your friends. Teeter also offers easy payment plans for as low as $66/month*.

Teeter also provides FREE shipping and a 60-day money back guarantee on the FreeStep. The well-known physiotherapy brand charges an additional $484 to ship their machine and only offers a 30-day money back guarantee.

I bought this because I needed an upper body and lower body workout with no added stress to my bones, back, etc. This is a very solid piece of equipment and extremely quiet. I was used to working on a [physiotherapy machine] and this was similar but in a much much lower price range […] Thank you for a great piece of equipment!

You might prefer to exercise in front of the TV in the living room but store the machine out of the way the rest of the day. Many of us do! In this case, the sheer size and weight of exercise equipment can be an issue. The Teeter FreeStep is not only more compact than physiotherapy exercise machines, but it weighs 100 pounds lighter – making it a breeze to roll away for storage!
