Numerous exercise step benches have been made, as exemplified by U.S. Pat. Nos. 5,275,579, 5,118,096, 5,116,044, 5,096,186, and 5,066,001 all to Wilkinson et al., 5,037,084 (Flor), 5,154,678 (Adamczyk), 5,176,596 (Ullman), 5,213,554 (Goldstein et al.), and 5,050,861 (Thomas et al.). Some of the described step benches require disassembly of the support members from the bench to adjust the height. Such an arrangement involves the risk of improper assembly or reassembly and the risk of loss of parts. Some step benches do not provide a sufficient range of height adjustment. Others do not provide as much stability as is desirable to the horizontal motion exerted as a user steps up and down repetitively. In still others, the height adjustment mechanism is not strong enough to withstand the hard use associated with aerobic step exercising.
