MaxiClimber Sports ResistanceThe earlier MaxiClimber model features Bi-directional Hydraulic Resistance System while the latest SPORTS model has a elastic resistance bands. This is an important change that you as a buyer should take a note of. Resistance elastic bands of MaxiClimber Sports are weaker as compared to hydraulic resistance of the earlier MaxiClimber model. The elastic resistance also has just three levels of resistance compare to the 12 of the earlier MaxiClimber. Elastic resistance bands are more suited for rehabilitation exercises than sports exercises. The benefit of having elastic resistance bands is that you can change the bands when they wear out.

Our Verdict on MaxiClimber SportRock Climbing has become a new fitness trend. Rock climbing makes you sweat and burn calories. Vertical Climbers like the MaxiClimber Sport mimic the rock climbing motion and claim to provide the same results as you may get from actual climbing. MaxiClimber Sport combines Rock Climbing + HIIT. But wait you don’t really need an expensive machine like the MaxiClimber Sport to burn calories with HIIT training. Self.com has a good article named “A Sweaty 24-Minute Cardio HIIT Workout You Can Do In Your Living Room” which lists a number of HIIT exercises that you can do without a exercise machine, in your very living room.
We are not demonizing the MaxiClimber Sport in this review, we are merely pointing out the fact that you don’t need a $120 climber machine to loose weight and burn calories. Well certainly the capabilities of the MaxiClimber Sport are over-rated. The same results can be achieved by watching videos and using in-expensive workout equipment. Maxi-Climber is a machine and it is going to wear down. The fact that the MaxiClimber Sport is made by a company that has no prior experience of manufacturing sturdy and reliable fitness products, puts serious questions about the quality of the climber. If I am going to invest $120 on a fitness machine I am going to check who the manufacturer is.
MaxiClimber is nothing new there have been many models of MaxiClimbers in the market since its launch in 2014. MaxiClimber was the first “vertical climber” in the market but since then there haven’t been many climbers. And there isn’t a single vertical climber from a reputed fitness brand.
Even the MaxiClimber reviews on Amazon.com say a lot about the product. There are more than 2500 MaxiClimber reviews on Amazon.om out of which 13% reviews are with 1-star rating (poor), 6% reviews are with 2-star rating and 10% reviews are with 3-star ratings. So close to 30% MaxiClimber users (that is approx 750 users) have critical view about the product.
Remember if the MaxiClimber Sport technique had REALLY worked for burning calories, then all major fitness brands would have made vertical climbers. Do you think they (Major Fitness Brands) would have ignored the potential of vertical climbers? – NO. But you don’t see reputed fitness brands (Like Horizon, ProForm, Exerpeutic, NordicTrack, Weslo, Nautilus etc) making vertical climbers. The reason – vertical climbing does not work that efficiently. Vertical climber cannot be a replacement for a treadmill, an exercise bike or a stepper.
Vertical Climbers are just a gimmick and have very little practical value. We would suggest not to invest your money in the MaxiClimber Sport vertical climber.
