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 have wanted a treadclimber for awhile. I was very excited to receive it. I have been working out for over 10 years using treadmills, elipitcals and running/power walking. I thought the treadclimber was going to be a breeze. I thought I would step on it and be able to go for 45-50 minutes and do my usual cardio routine. Well, I was so surprised that when I first used it, I could barely do 5 minutes. I had never experienced a workout like this before. It really makes you work and its a hard workout. I have now had it for 2 weeks and I'm up to 25 minutes. I never thought it would take me this long to get to 25 minutes. Even though its a hard workout, I know its doing my body good. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking to lose weight or gain muscle strength.

Okay so I used to live at the gym but my schedule changed and so I thought this would be the best way to get a good workout in from home. Big mistake. There are numerous problems with this machine. I was moving so I waited over 6 weeks to put together and I was over my return period or I would have returned it in a heartbeat. The display never has worked but the big problem is with NO MOTOR this is so difficult to use it knocks like your hitting the bottom because there is no hydraulic system it is bearings only. NO MOTOR so keeping the rythm very difficult you might as well march in place. It is not fun I know workouts aren't supposed to be fun but they aren't supposed to feel impossible either. Something is just not right in my opinion with the design. As a single parent money is tight and this is very unfortunate for me. If your goinf to buy I would suggest the motor model or something else not this!!

    This machine will cause you to loss weight. I've had it a month and have lost 10lbs. I'm sure I could have lost more by now, but I've been going slowly, using it 3 times a week 15 to 30 minutes at a time.
    If you don't exercise much this will be hard at the start. You have to get use to the motion on treadles, but hang in there you'll get it.
    Only 30lbs too go

      I'm 69 I use to walk. I want to be able to take a short walk over several times a day. Especially after lunch and dinner. But I also want to be at home when I walk.Bingo The Treadclimber, I've got the best of both worlds.

      Comments about Bowflex TreadClimber TC5:

      I purposely waited this long to leave my review to make sure I could give one that was as complete as possible. When I first got my TC5 I had some difficulties for which I turned to previous reviews to find they were fairly common. I'll try to address these in my review.

      Part I: Ordering and Delivery. I first ordered my TC5 back in May. I paid outright with no financing. Please be aware if you choose this method, Nautalis puts an initial hold on the funds, which is later released because processing can take up to two weeks (and did for me); this means you will have to watch your spending as they don't charge you until the product ships. Once the product did ship, it got here in a matter of days despite me living in Hawaii, which I was very happy about. It arrived in early June.

      Part II: Assembly. Like many have pointed out in their own reviews, assembly is not a one person job. It *can* be done by just one person, but will be much harder and a workout in itself. You will do a lot of heavy lifting and wiggling, so be sure to ask a strong sturdy friend for help. The wheels are on the back of the machine, which makes it hard to relocate. Be sure of where you want to put it and assemble as close to this location as possible.

      Part III: Use. I've always wanted a Treadclimber, since they first came out over a decade ago, but could never afford one. I didn't qualify for financing, but I am so happy I made this investment. A lot of people have compared this to walking in sand, but I think it's more like constant uphill hiking. The first week I could only do 5-10 minutes at a time. It took me a couple of weeks to build up my muscles and endurance, and now (some 7 weeks later) I am able to do 20-30 minutes at a time, several days a week. My usual routine is 20 minutes in the morning and 20 in the late afternoon, but I try to do at least 10 minutes a day, every day of the week. Ten minutes gets me up to a good sweat. Something else I'd like people to take notice of in it's use is how low impact this machine really is. Somehow I hurt my foot the other day and my heel is too tender to even walk on normally. Yet I'm still able to get up and do my 20 minutes with no pain in my foot. I can't walk regularly, but I can still exercise and I love it!

      Part IV: Results. I read somewhere that the best results come in the first six weeks of using the TC5. I didn't see much in the way of results in my first six weeks to no fault of Bowflex or the TC5; my lack of results was due to not following the instructed regimen or provided diet plan. However, since I began using the TC5 regularly (the past two weeks with the above stated routine) I have lost about two pounds a week, which I am very happy with considering I didn't change my diet much.

      Part V: Issues. One issue I notice several people having is with noise. When I first started using the TC5, it did make quite a bit of noise but as time went on and my muscles started toning, the noise level went down. In my personal experience, if you are properly aligned (back straight, core tight, shoulders back, chest out) the TC5 makes minimal noise. The worst part of it now comes from the back rollers which start to creak after 5-10 minutes. Another issure I noticed is with the tread bands sliding to the side during use. This can be adjusted by tightening/loosening the 'screws' (I'm not sure what to call them...) at the top of the treadles. There are four in total, two on each treadle, that need to be adjusted with an Alan wrench (included). Trial and error is really the only way to go with this one. I've got mine balanced well enough that the treads slide a little, but don't scrape the sides anymore. You will notice deterioration on the outsides of the treadles unless you balance them correctly and this can happen fairly quickly. Balancing the top rollers will also help reduce the noise level.

      Part VI: Anything else. The TC5 is a non-electric model, so you set the pace instantly. I like this because if I suddenly get tired I don't have to adjust anything, I just walk slower. If I feel more energized I simply walk faster and track my speed and progress on the battery-operated screen. I am very happy with my purchase and excited to continue on my fitness journey.

      The one suggestion I have that I think would make this machine that much better is to put the wheels on the front end instead of the back end so people can use leverage to easily move it around. It is a very heavy piece of equipment.

                  Hi Coach! The TC5 tends to be slightly more effective than the motorized models in that the user will tend to burn more calories on the TC5 because it is manually operated whereas the TC10 and TC20 have the motor to help make the belts move.

You also have the potential to burn even more calories on the TC5 than you would on the TC10 or TC20 because it is manually operated, making you work harder than you would on the other two that have motors to help the belts move.

                  Hi Art! We highly recommend that you check with your doctor regarding your particular exercise needs. The Bowflex TreadClimber TC5 and TC10 are very popular machines, largely because they is designed to be very low impact. However, your experience is subjective, so we cannot determine whether or not either machine would be right for you. We highly recommend seeking professional assistance before making any decisions regarding a purchase.

                Does the Treadclimber TC5 fold down for storage when not in use? Is it easy to move from room to room?

                  Hi Sharon! The TreadClimber TC5 does not fold but it is equipped with transport wheels at the rear of the machine to allow for easy maneuverability.
