3-in-1 TreadClimber® technology trims your workout time and delivers faster results—guaranteed.

The TreadClimber® machine is a unique breakthrough in the fitness industry. It combines the actions of the three most effective cardio machines into one:

  1. TREADMILL: Splitting the treadle into two separate belts, the TreadClimber® machine delivers the walking, jogging and running action of a treadmill—and goes a step further. In addition to your legs and glutes, it engages the core muscles that help maintain your balance.
  2. STAIR CLIMBER: The pumping action of the separate treadles replicates the highly effective aerobic exertion of stepping.
  3. ELLIPTICAL: As the TreadClimber® machine's treadles rise to meet your stride, the impact on your joints is reduced, so you enjoy the same smooth, ergonomic motion of the best elliptical machines.

The efficient and easy TreadClimber® machine gives you the ultimate cardio workout—and all you do is WALK™.

Here is an update from my Aug 2012 review. at that time, i was 239# (started at 273 1 year ago). Now i am at 222#. Between labor day and the end of the year, I spent 58 hours on my treadclimber, walked 182 miles and burned just under 37,000 calories... increasing my time from 30 minutes 5/6 times a week to 50 minutes 5/6 times a week.

Had the chance to sit with my doctor this week. blood work continues to show good results. glucose is now at 94, quite a drop from 122 (pre-diabetes a year ago), A1C now at 5.4.. down 1.2 points over the past year. He told me that a recent study showed that reducing A1C by just 0.5 reduced risk of cardiovascular death by 45%. Trigylcerides now at 95 (was at 304).

The weight loss is good, the impact of the exercise on my internal workings is most amazing...Just this week, made it to 2.91 miles in 50 minutes... and aiming to get to 3 miles in 50 minutes in the next month... and to be below 200# by the time spring comes along.

even brave enough to include before/after pictures now!

There is no doubt that the TC10 is a great workout. But, there are many attributes that makes me wish I could upgrade to the TC20. But, to pay $500 out of my own pocket to pack and ship it back and then order a TC20... I will just learn to live with the shortcomings of the TC10.

Here is what I found...

The TC10 treadles (running track) are too short and narrow for anyone over 5'10". If you are over 5'10", get the TC20 which has longer treadles. I am 6'2" and I doubt that I will ever be able to take my hands off the grab bars to keep me from falling off during the workout. For me, I just have to take shorter steps to make the TC10 work.

The G.O. Coach is COMPLETELY useless if more than 1 person uses the TC10. The TC20 supports 2 people on the G.O. Coach. The G.O. Coach is a GREAT concept, but, simply will not work with more than one user.

The TC20 has a Quick Start mode that is more goal-oriented -- set a time or distance or calories burned and work your way up to that... the TC20 lets you know when you have achieved your goal for the workout session. This is the closest thing they have to an automate training mode -- see more comments later on in this review. The TC10 does not have Quick Start.

The plastic is cheap and does not assemble in a tight fashion. This was VERY disappointing.

The height and angle of the console is next to useless for a magazine or iPad during your workout. Your neck will be aching if you try to do this. The TC20 looks like they have improved upon this -- although it might not be perfected.

Like identified in other reviews, the machine is VERY noisy. It also does NOT move easily unless the flooring is perfect to move it. If the TC10 is on the mat and you want to move it on to a plush carpet, it does NOT move easily. Plus, after a workout, you are often so "beat" that you barely have the strength to move it.

One thing to keep in mind with the TC20 and the TC15... there is NO system that will automatically adjust the speed or resistance during your training session. For example, if you like to do interval training on an elliptical or treadmill (differing levels of resistance for various time periods to simulate hills), the TreadClimber WILL NOT AUTOMATICALLY ADJUST THE SPEED based on timed intervals. You control the speed, and, you have to pay attention to the time and adjust the speed yourself. I suspect that this is a safety issue given the design of the machine -- with the short treadles and the intensity of the workout, you want to be in full control of your speed. As a result, there is no computer display telling you that you are in a "cool down" portion of your workout.

I will give Bowflex credit on this -- they are not cutting corners on the no automatic speed adjustments as that is a legitimate safety issue. Plus, when you read the Owners Guide, you really see that they want you to be in control of your workout / training routine... but, they could have at least built in some audible alarms.

I do think Bowflex is cutting corners on the cheap plastic parts that don't fit well together. Same for the height and angle of the console that makes an iPad, magazine or book difficult to read. I also think that the Bowflex web site should have a sales consultant feature that walks the customer through some qualifying questions and make a recommendation (I would have bought the more expensive TC20 had I gone through a recommendation wizard). They should ask questions like: is it important to read a magazine during your workout... TC20. Are you more than 5'10"... TC20. They should ask those questions and explain why the upgraded model is a better fit than the mid-range model.

With all that negative, why would I recommend to a friend / buy it again. Compared to an elliptical, stair stepper or treadmill, the TreadClimber is an incredible workout -- it is in a class by itself. And that is why you buy a machine like this, you want results. So, I will live without being able to put the iPad on it, I will live with the cheap plastic, I will live with the G.O. Coach effectively being out of commission because more than one person uses the machine and I will get used to taking shorter steps and managing my own speed / monitoring the time for the interval workouts. I will live with all these shortcomings because the TC10 is a GREAT workout.

My 2-star rating is deserved by Bowflex. There are so many issues that are documented over the past few years on this web site (that I now echo in my review) that they CAN FIX. For what Bowflex is charging, they should fix these issues and they would have a 5-star product.

Comments about Bowflex TreadClimber TC10:

I'm 81 years old and had gotten pretty overweight and nothing was working to shed the pounds. The claim of 3 days @ 30 mins each is hooey. I do this 7 days a week @ 30 mins/day plus 5-min at the start of each quarter watching NFL games - that's an extra 60 min on Sunday and extra 20 min on Mon & Thurs. While the pounds aren't melting away quickly, I am losing 1#/wk. But the difference is very noticeable in the toning. Maybe after all the fat is burned I will see quicker results. I am, in an odd way, enjoying my morning workout. But then, I guess I am a glutton for punishment.

      I bought this unit to help me loose weight and to get in shape. I am not up to doing it for 1/2 hour yet but I can do it in 10 minute increments at this time. I am working slowly so that the I can stay focused and motivated. It's nice that it's set up and ready to go when I am, I don't have to take time and get it ready to go.

      I used the TC10 for 4 weeks, at least 5x a week for a MIn. of 30 mintues. I got a good workout, worked up a sweat and my heartrate got a workout too. I did not lose ONE POUND! I am 50 yrs. old and worked out for 27 yrs straight, took three yrs. off and gained 27 LBS. I thought this machine would work taking it off, was very dissappointed.

                  A:

                  It shouldn't hurt anything if you turn the shocks too much in either direction. It will just make it a little harder to see which resistance you're on. The dots on the belts are to give you a visual to see that the treads are moving.

              • Q:

                I LIVE IN A SINGLE STUDIO APARTMENT AND I NOTICED LATELY THAT I'M GAINING WEIGHT. I WOULD LIKE TO LOSE ROUGHLY 40 TO 60 LBS.

                I USED TO WORK OUT BEFORE BUT, DUE WORKING SO MUCH AT WORK I'VE GAINED A LOT OF WEIGHT.

                IS THERE CERTAIN MODES ON THE TREADCLIMBER TC10 TO BURN AND WORK OUT OR IS ONLY ONE MODE ON THE MACHINE??

                  There is only one workout on the TC10. You can adjust the speed and the hydraulic level to change the intensity.

                I am in my 80's and have always exercised extensively but for many years now I haven't. Is the TC10 too advanced for my purpose and age? Does it have a low rate of workout so as to build me up slowly?
