Health Benefits of Stair Climbing

Date: 13 May 2014

 

Stair climbing is officially classified by the Department of Health and the American College of Sports Medicine as ‘vigorous exercise’.

It burns more calories a minute than jogging and research shows it builds fitness, muscle tone and cardiovascular health. Regular stair climbing protects against conditions including heart attack and stroke.

With stairs all around us, it’s an excellent way of keeping healthy and staying in shape.
