The TV commercial below has been airing as of mid-2015. Although it appears that MaxiClimber has been advertising since at least late 2013, it appears to be engaged in a marketing push in mid-2015.

As Seen on TV exercise equipment is not always met with the most positive response, often labeled as cheap or over-hyped. With MaxiClimber, however, we found most of the claims in the advertising to be genuine and backed by our experience in using the product. The product delivers a solid workout, and takes up a small amount of space, unlike bikes and other gym equipment. We give it props for easy assembly and a price point below many other steppers that can cost into the thousands. Customer satisfaction runs high, with a 4.5-star rating at Amazon, although its B rating from the BBB in mid-2015 fell to an F Rating by January 2016. The rating is due to MaxiClimber’s failure to respond to complaints filed against the business.
Our only complaint is that the machine tends to feel a bit wobbly on carpeted floors, and in fact their FAQ states that it does need to be used on a hard surface.
Reviews culled from various online sources show an overall consumer satisfaction level of 4+ stars. As of January 2016, MaxiClimber ranks at 4 stars at Walmart with a 93% rating, 4.5 stars at Sears, 4 stars at QVC, and 3.5 stars at Dick’s Sporting Goods.
While there are a wealth of steppers available, there are not as many which sport the same design as MaxiClimber. Perhaps the closest is the Conquer Vertical Climber Fitness Climbing Machine, which holds a 4-star rating on Amazon and can be found for as low as $130.
We found MaxiClimber to be a rare As Seen on TV exercise product which lives up to the hype, providing a solid workout at a reasonable price. Consumer reviews on various websites appear to agree with our mostly-positive assessment.
