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™.

I bought this Tread Climber for my wife and I to lose weight and improve overall health. We have had been using it for 2 weeks and I'm already seeing results. With a better diet and using the Tread Climber for 30 minutes a day 4 days a week, I have lost 7 of the 20 pounds I need to lose. I'm looking forward to the next doctor visit to see if my blood pressure and resting heart rate has come down any.

It's not an easy workout (for me). I guess workouts should never be easy. I do feel like I'm working more with this that I ever had on a treadmill or eliptical machine. It does feel like you are walking up a steep hill waist deep in mud. You get a good sweat going quickly.

The controls are difficult to use. There are only 5 buttons on the console. It's very difficult to set the goals for my wife and I. It would be nice if it could automate some intervals instead of manually having to adjust the speed up or down.

Bought it for my girlfriend and myself. Good workout but come on bowfkex ..... The heart rate monitor is lame. It should be able to connect to a smart phone or device and save pace, distance etc to any of the workout apps out there. For that matter bowfkex should have their own app for it. Very disappointing for an industry leader like Bowflex.

Great Low Impact Aerobic Workout

By Val

  • fun
  • Low impact

Cons

  • Console

Best Uses

  • Aeorbic
  • Walking

Comments about Bowflex TreadClimber TC20:

The TC20 is a great machine for getting me moving and getting my heart rate up which is what I was missing from my exercise routine. Living in Juneau, Alaska it can be difficult to get outside in the winter months when it is dark and icy, or in the summer when it rains for days on end. This machine provides a means for me to get exercise whenever I feel like it and no matter what the weather is doing outside.

I have the beginnings of arthritis in my right hip which can cause me quite a bit of pain, so I was looking for an aerobic workout that was low impact enough not to aggravate this. The TreadClimber is very comfortable to use and my joints are pain free after use. The main reason I chose this model was for the longer treadle length. I am of average height (5'-7"), but feel that the longer length allows me the space to adjust my stride easily and that keeps me walking for longer periods of time.

I read numerous online reviews and watched several videos before deciding on the TC20. I agree with comments that the console is a bit lackluster for the price, but I don't need bells & whistles, so that doesn't bother me. The heart rate monitor is nice to have.

The machine went together pretty easily with my boyfriend's help, and although some of the plastic pieces didn't line up as perfectly as I would have liked this does not seem to affect performance. the machine feels solid and strong.

Overall I am very pleased with this purchase and would recommend the machine to a friend…as a matter of fact, my best friend comes over twice a week to work out with me and she likes it too! The machine itself does not motivate me to work out, but I like having it as an option when I want to use it.

    Comments about Bowflex TreadClimber TC20:

    The heart monitor does not appear to work correctly when I max the machine at 4.5 it says my heart rate is 68 when I am clearly at least 170, then when I'm cruising my heart rates jumps up? The mileage and calories recorded do not match my pedometer readings by 1/2??

      Comments about Bowflex TreadClimber TC20:

      This piece of exercise equipment is unbelievable. I wish I had purchased from Bow Flex years ago. It is well made and easy to use. It is amazing that they combined an elliptical, stair master, and treadmill into one machine. The technology that went into designing this machine is amazing. Results can be seen immediately. I was hesitant to order this machine because I wanted to see one in person and try it before I made the purchase even though the company says that you can return it and receive a refund if you are unsatisfied. After receiving my equipment, I am so happy that I made the decision to purchase it. Their Customer Service department was very helpful and the company offers a payment plan that the purchaser can take advantage of. I opted for a technician to come to my house and assemble my machine. When the machine was delivered, I called up to schedule the assembly and I did not have to wait. I got an appointment two days later. I am ecstatic. Over all, the TC20 is a commercial grade piece f equipment that gives me the flexibility of achieving an amazing whole body workout within the comforts of my home. Thank you Bow Flex!

        • 10min X 3 If No Time
        • No Excuses Work Out

        Comments about Bowflex TreadClimber TC20:

        I am starting out with 10-15min workouts, and fitting in 2-3/d. I thought I was in okay shape, nope. Still, the fact that I can break it up means I have NO EXCUSES to work it in daily. I need "no excuses". The only downside is the screen; not impressive, but you do see your calorie/distance/time in real time, which is interesting. I must admit I am disappointed to see how slowly calories burn, but annoyance motivates me to keep going. Couldn't be happier. Will be using for years.

                      Hi Donna. The Bowflex TC20 TreadClimber is designed for assembly by the home user. However, Nautilus does offer in home assembly services on this machine for $249 + tax throughout the continental United States and most major metropolitan areas in Canada. This service may be purchased either at the same time as the machine, or separately after the machine is ordered.

                      A:

                      Hi JB. The TC20 TreadClimber will work just fine for both you and your wife. The walking surface on the TC20 is approximately 4 inches longer than that of the TC10, which will allow it to accommodate your longer stride easier, allowing for a more comfortable workout. At their highest point, the treadles are 17 inches from the floor (43 cm). Add that to your height, plus a couple of inches for comfortable clearance, to calculate your minimum ceiling height.

                    How do I order a heart band so that my wife and I don't have to make a major adjustment to the one we have each usage?

                    Do any 3 of the machines have an automatic kill switch key option to purchase? Also, do any of the machines have the option to purchase longer hand rest posts?

                      Hi Rube. All of our Bowflex TreadClimbers come equipped with safety keys so that in the event the key gets pulled out while the machine is in use, the belts will stop. As far as the arm posts, however, there are no posts available of varying length. There are only the ones designed for your specific model and are not cross-compatible between the models.

                  • Q:

                    Does the TC20 have an interval workout setting, where you can set for 2 speeds at the beginning of your workout and it will change the speed appropriately dividing it up while you workout? Also, does the TC20 have a min/max treadle capability without having to manually adjust the treadles?

                      I am sorry, Kel, but the answer to both questions is no. There isn't a workout program on the TC20 that will allow you to set it for 2 speeds and have it change automatically through the workout, nor is there a way to change the settings on the hydraulic shocks the user adjusting them manually.
