Exercising on a walker machine elevates the heart rate, lowers cholesterol levels and reduces the risk of obesity-related problems. The machine targets the stomach and leg regions and burns the fat present under the skin at those parts of the body.
Walker exercise machines increase the heart rate by 50 to 70 percent of the maximum rate, which gives the body an energy boost and an effective workout. A lower-body workout on the walker involves using only the legs component of the machine. One hour of medium-impact aerobic exercise on a walker machine can burn about 365 calories for a person who weighs 160 pounds, 455 calories for someone who weighs 200 pounds and 545 calories for a person who weighs 240 pounds.
The walker exercise machine reduces muscle fatigue with constant and rigorous exercise. It keeps the joints and bones flexible and free of pain by exercising them regularly, and it balances the acid-base equilibrium in the body to aid with weight reduction. The machine also improves blood circulation in the legs and improves oxygen absorption at the cellular level. It is estimated that a 15-minute workout using a walker machine in the morning is equal to walking 10,000 steps.
