The Man in the Elevator

A man lives on the tenth floor of a building. Every day, he takes the elevator to the first floor to go to work or to go shopping. When he returns, he always takes the elevator to the seventh floor and then walks the remaining flights of stairs to his appartement on the tenth floor.
Why does he do this?

Ok egyptia, here you are some hints:
* The man doesn't do anything between the 7th an the 10th floor other than climbing stairs.
* If he had somebody else with him, the other person would not have done the same
* If he lived on the 6th floor he would have gone to the 6th floor using the elevator

Good Luck :)

hmmm .. may be he doesn't stand the pressure in the elevator more than the 6th floor .. or his doctor ordered him to exercise daily so he climbs the stairs :)
