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.

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.

    Comments about Bowflex TreadClimber TC5:

    I'm 85 years of age, had a coronary artery bypass in 2003, have an aching lower back, and suffer from shortness of breath with exertion. My wife is 78, has cardiomyopathy (congestive heart failure) with accompanying shortness of breath, for which she has an implanted pacemaker/defibrallator. She also has Type II diabetes.

    We purchased the TC5 TreadClimber because it is not motorized and we believed it would be easier to control. It is.

    Because of our health conditions, we are interested in improving my breathing and back condition, and both of our endurances.

    So far I'm able to do only two minutes (about 200 single strides) before I'm too winded, and my wife can do only about 25 strides.

    We both enjoy using the TC5 and will continue trying to stretch our times.

          The tread climber is easy to use for any adult with good health. Presently, I am 67 years of age and use this machine 3 times a week for about 5 minutes along with the warm-up exercises. I do not need to lose weight other than about 5 pounds, but use to strengthen muscles and build up stamina.

          I actually wish I had just saved up and bought the next model up...the base model is just that...a base model. It was VERY difficult to assemble and I usually have little trouble with this type of thing.

          A caveat to the "recommend to a friend" choice...I would not recommend the base model. That said, I will still use it and it is a VERY good workout...just not as smooth as I would have hoped.

            1 answer

            • CUSTOMER CARE

              A:

              Hi Tammy. If you check on page 25 of your owners manual it will walk you thru the process: While operating the machine, notice where the belts run on each Treadle. The Walking
              Belt Adjustment Bolts are on the front end of each Roller. If the belt is tracking too far to the right, use a 5mm hex wrench to turn the right walking belt adjustment bolt clockwise on that belt in a half turn increment. Secure the hex wrench and operate the walking belts for approximately 30 seconds, noticing if the walking belt is adjusted. Repeat as necessary until adjusted.
              If the belt tracks too far to the left, do the same thing on the left walking belt adjustment bolt. Thank you.

              As this is your first time working out on a machine of this type, I recommend at least the TC10 model as it comes equipped with a motor to drive the motion of the walking belts. The TC5 is manually operated which can make it a bit more difficult in some cases, especially if you aren't used to it in the first place.
