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 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.

I was sweating and feeling the burn in my legs after a few minutes on the machine, and that is exactly why I bought it. So, in that regard, it works exactly as it should.
On the down side, unless you pay to have it assembled for you, the machine was very difficult to put together. The plastic covers did not fit well together nor did the pre-drilled holes in them match up with the holes in the metal parts, so putting the screws in were difficult. Also, every time I turn on the fan or some other electronics in the same room, the machine's tracker beeps, which is odd to me because it runs on batteries and isn't connected to anything.
Bottom line, I don't feel the machine is worth the amount I paid for it, but I do believe that anyone serious about losing weight or getting into shape can do so with this machine.

                      Does the TreadClimber TC 5 fold or roll in order to store? Planning on buying one soon and there is no information on storage options.
