I finally bought a copy of G.UT.S. and I was so inspired that I decided to build a step. I did not want to spend $60 to $100 to buy a plastic step, and I do not have stairs. So for about $10 to $20, depending on available hardware and lumber laying around, a person could build their own step bench. In the spirit of the Transformetrics, I am giving the design plans away. If you have already built the boxes featured in PTYP, M7, and G.U.T.S., you will enjoy building this project too.

That is a nice looking bench, one question, how many inches tall is the bench?

I went to Walmart and bought two gray step stools for abut $5 each. I use them for the Atlas pushups and then push them together for a step, one for each foot. They are about 7 inches high, perfect for this!

Hey Mrhealthpatriot,

I must say that your bench looks great. I'm glad that you are enjoying G.U.T.S.

The bench has about the same dimensions as a "Reebok Step" or "The Step" - The bench is 14 x 40 inches and is 12 inches tall. Of course, it is made in the USA!

I am fortunate enough to have an IKEA located near my home. They sell a wooden step stool with two steps (two difficulty levels) for $20 each...half price during sales. The children's department has benches that can be used for stepping. Not as much creativity needed to put these together, just some time and some elbow grease.
