Side steppers may see an opportunity within the company to move into a new department and this may present itself as either a promotion or sometimes even a step down. Even if its a demotion in the long run the benefits could outweigh the initial pay decrease or job level drop.
The benefits of side stepping can be exciting because you are about to get out of your comfort zone and start a whole new career in a role you have perhaps no experience in. You will most probably be working with colleagues who you haven’t interacted with in the past and you will be learning new skills everyday going forward. These skills will be a valuable asset to your CV and could even go towards helping you receive a professional qualification which your current company may even pay for.
If you think about side-stepping within the same company you are also cutting out the massive headache of having to resign, train up your replacement, apply for jobs, go through the on boarding process in a new company, learn all the policies & procedures of the new company and actually be the ‘new’ person in the company.
The side stepper is an aerobic machine used to tone the thighs, buttocks and calves as well as burn calories. The machine has two shoe-shaped steps that you put both feet on. As you step on each foot pad, you move the exercise machine steps from side to side and in an up and down motion, giving you a good cardiovascular workout to burn calories and keep blood pumping throughout your body. It is different from step aerobics, which uses a stepboard.
The side stepper works via hydraulics and without handles so you are forced to maintain balance, thereby working your core as you step from side to side. The movement you assume while staying on the exerciser is cardiovascular in nature, letting your heart pump blood throughout your system and expanding your lungs as you perform the steps. The movement is similar to climbing a stairs or stepping on and off a step board or pad.
