Full Answer

According to Mayo Clinic, The StairMaster burns up to 819 calories hourly. This is four times the calories burned through general cardiovascular exercise. This choleric burn is attributed to the front muscle usage in the thighs (quadriceps) as well as the buttocks, which balances the body's mass against gravity's force to generate a vigorous workout.
