Bowflex TreadClimber TC10 Review
The Bowflex TreadClimber TC10 is unique in the way that it combines the actions of three cardio machines into one, allowing you to get a whole body workout in from one machine, and perhaps more importantly you can mix up your regime to avoid the monotony of a specific exercise setting in – one of the most common reasons people give up on their fitness goals.
You are able to replicate the walking and jogging action of a treadmill by splitting the treadle into two separate belts. But as the TC10 has a speed range of 0.5 to 4 mph, you should keep in mind that it isn’t the best of machines for running on.
The pumping action of the separate treadles replicates the exertion of stepping, and as the TC10’s treadles rise to meet your stride, you can also enjoy the same smooth, ergonomic motion of elliptical trainers.
There are 4 separate LCD display screens, allowing you to view all of the essential information as you work out, such as speed, time, distance, and calories burned.
However, considering the price of the TC10 it would’ve been nice if a few more functions and built-in workout programs were included, although the G.O. Coach console, which tracks the weekly progress of a single user toward a 90-minute goal, is a nice touch.
Other features include an ergonomically designed console that provides easy access to water bottles and magazines, an instant Quick Start feature, transport wheels for easy mobility, a rear step platform, and a Bowflex body weight loss plan.
The TC10 weighs 185 pounds, has a maximum user weight capacity of 300 pounds, and is backed by a 2-year warranty. You may also want to know that according to a study conducted at the University of Wiconsin, TreadClimber technology enables you to burn up to 3.5 times the calories as other cardio machines.
Bowflex TreadClimber TC10 User Reviews
The Bowflex TreadClimber currently has an average rating of 3.7 out of 5.0. Users say that the machine is easy to assemble: “went together fairly easily,” “simple to put together.”
A couple of owners feel that it is a good choice for people with joint trouble – one purchased the TC10 because he found treadmills too damaging to the knees, and another for rehab purposes.
The TC10 is also able to offer users an effective workout: “Definitely a better workout than any other one piece of equipment I have used, ”The thing I find the most amazing is how it impacts my lower stomach muscles.”
However, one user feels that the controls could be improved upon and would also prefer a “more detailed workout history.
