This is the Bowflex Treadclimber that is known to exercise leg muscles and this machine was designed to combine 3 of the other exercise machines that are being used today.
When you are using the Treadclimber you are getting a dose of the elliptical machine, stair climber, and treadmill. You probably got confused and wondered how all of that could be in one machine. Read along and find out why it has all 3 combined in it.
3 in 1 workout
The Treadclimber is has 2 platforms for each of your foot. Both of the platforms have a conveyor belt that is rotating backwards similar to a treadmill. The platforms go up and down as you walk on them which resemble a motion like you are climbing the stairs (stair climber) and it gives a low-impact workout on the joints and knees that are very similar to what an elliptical trainer is known for. The Treadclimber stands out by combining these 3 machines in one, it gives you a full workout with just one exercise machine. You can also choose the intensity level of your work out from 1 to 12. This means that it can be used by anyone. The capacity of the Treadclimber is 300 lbs. so a person who is overweight can easily use it.
Better calorie burn
If you use the Treadclimber walking for 30 minutes at 4.5 mph, you will burn the same amount of calories if you were on a treadmill running at 5 mph for 30 minutes. This means that you are able to the same amount of calories without exerting too much effort. If you want to burn more calories, all you have to do is increase the intensity level because the Treadclimber’s speed is only 4.5 mph which does not satisfy some people who have purchased the product. This could also depend on the weight of the person because people who have more body fat to lose are able to burn more calories in a given amount of time.
Easy to use
The Treaclimber is very easy to use because it has an interactive LCD screen which you can refer to when tracking your progress. You can follow the instructions in the manual on how to operate it which is really easy. It can save records for up to 2 people so they can track their calorie burn, time, intensity, program, etc. (more…)
