1. Save Space In Your Home 

The Merax Climbing Machine folds up easily to save space. You can quickly and easily move it to a corner or behind a piece of furniture to have it out of the way when not in use. When you do want to use it, it has a very small floor footprint so it can be used in smaller areas. That means this piece of home workout equipment is especially great for apartments and small homes.

2. Burn More Calories Using One Piece of Equipment

Because you are using your whole body when you work out on this Climbing Machine, you burn more calories in the same amount of time than you would if you were on a treadmill or even an elliptical. This makes vertical climbers especially convenient for those who want to make the most out of the time they spend working out.

You will be working out your biceps and triceps, your leg muscles, and especially your core when you tighten your abs during your workout, all at the same time. It won’t take long before you see fat melting away and you can show off beautiful toned muscle. You earned that with regular use of your Merax Vertical Climbing Machine.

3. Work Out from The Comfort of Your Home

When you have a piece of Merax home gym equipment, you don’t have to spend a fortune on monthly gym memberships just to wait around to use the machines you want to use. Plus, chances are they won’t have a vertical climber like this one that is easy to use and gives you a workout like no other. You can put your machine in front of the TV in the living room and spend an hour watching your favorite show, or you can put in your earbuds and listen to your favorite workout playlist.

If you have children, working out at home is especially convenient because you know that if you need to stop to take care of something with your kids, you can. You don’t have to find a babysitter or depend on the day care at the gym – which is an added expense – just to be able to get in a good workout.

4. Merax Makes a Solid and Durable Product

When you purchase a Merax Vertical Climber, you are getting a quality product. It may be affordable, but that doesn’t mean that they cut corners on construction to save you money.

The steel frame is adjustable so that you can be completely comfortable while getting a great workout on your Merax machine. It will accommodate climbers that weigh between 220 and 330 pounds. You can also add the bright green non-stick grips, made my Merax, that are compatible with the vertical climber to make your workout different and also a little more colorful.

The black frame is durable but folds up easily and can be moved effortlessly to a corner or other out-of-the-way place until the next time you want to use it.

5. Merax is Always Committed to the Customer

This company is committed to making sure that the customer is happy with their purchase. Not only do they offer a quality product but they always strive to offer it at an affordable price. They also have a generous return policy as well as a 90-day return policy.

Merax VS Maxi Vertical Climber

The Merax Vertical Climber shares a lot of features with the Maxi Vertical Climber, which you may also be considering as a purchase. However, there are some differences between the two.

As similarities, they are both height adjustable so that people of differing heights can use the machines comfortably. On the foot pedals, they also both have non-stick grips that are both isometric. Plus, both machines can be folded up into a compact design that can be put away somewhere that it won’t be in the way.

However, each machine has drawbacks or benefits depending on what you are looking for. The Maxi Climber does cost a bit more than the Merax Vertical Climber but it has some features that you may not want or need. Do you need a workout timer that automatically starts and stops when the machine does? Many people already have workout watches that track their personal fitness – and these track so much more – so this may not be something that is necessary for you. Also, the Maxi machine takes up a larger space when it is set up than the Merax machine. You may not have enough room for this in your home if space is limited or if you plan on keeping the machine set up at all times.

The final decision on which machine to choose is ultimately up to you, but it’s important to weigh the benefits and drawbacks of every machine to find the right one for you based on the features that each one has and what features will be of the most help to you. There’s no use in having a lot of features you won’t use.
