Best High-End
Best Mid-Range
Best Inexpensive

We spent 25 hours on research, videography, and editing, to review the top selections for this wiki. Vertical climbers offer a number of benefits over other fitness machines. They provide a full-body workout without putting undue stress on your joints, but don't compromise on their ability to burn lots of calories in a short period of time. They require less space than an exercise bike or treadmill, and can be folded up and placed out of the way when not in use. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to support our work. Skip to the best vertical climber on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

October 29, 2018:

While researching vertical climbers we found that their were very many similar items that were simply rebranded. We did our best to avoid all of these, and instead focused on those offered by reputable companies known for making fitness equipment. We also made choosing stable and well-made models a priority.

A wandering writer who spends as much time on the road as in front of a laptop screen, Brett can either be found hacking away furiously at the keyboard or, perhaps, enjoying a whiskey and coke on some exotic beach, sometimes both simultaneously, usually with a four-legged companion by his side. He has been a professional chef, a dog trainer, and a travel correspondent for a well-known Southeast Asian guidebook. He also holds a business degree and has spent more time than he cares to admit in boring office jobs. He has an odd obsession for playing with the latest gadgets and working on motorcycles and old Jeeps. His expertise, honed over years of experience, is in the areas of computers, electronics, travel gear, pet products, and kitchen, office and automotive equipment.
