Best Treadclimber For Home

A treadclimber is a very effective cardio machine to keep fit, burn fat fast and lose weight. Whatever your fitness objectives, a treadclimber can really help you attain your goals. A treadclimber incorporates three movements and offers you the benefits of a treadmill, a stair climber and an elliptical all in one single movement, that's what make it so powerful in terms of calorie-burning. According to a study by the University of Wisconsin, a treadclimber can enable you to burn 3.5 times more calories than other machines in the same amount of time.

A treadclimber also offers a more challenging and less boring workout minimizing impact on your joints thanks to the dual independent treadles that go up and down during your movement. Several health benefits come from exercising with a treadclimber like increased energy levels, improved bone density, increased HDL(Good cholesterol), improved cardiovascular system and reduced back pain.

Owning a treadclimber at home can be really convenient to stay fit and trim. It's a compact machine and doesn't require much space, so it's really practical for home use. You can just put it in a small corner in your room and exercise whenever you want.

Value-wise and price-wise, I think the best treadclimber for home is the Bowflex Treadclimber TC20. Although a bit pricey, this cardio machine is sturdy and really top-notch. The TC20's dimension is 55" L x 31.5" W x 55.25" H (139 x 80 x 140 cm), so it can fit in small spaces. It can also be easily transported due to its built-in wheels, so portability is a major benefit. For low-ceiling homes, consider this. Minimum ceiling height - At their highest point, the treadles are 17 inches off the floor. Just add 17 inches to your height and a couple more for clearance. This is something to consider before purchasing a treadclimber for home use.

The TC20 from Bowflex includes 5 functions like speed, time, distance, calories and HR and is equipped with a fully backlit LCD screen. It also comes with a wireless heart rate monitor and an indicator for the amount of calories burned, so tracking your progress doesn't get any better and easier than this.

The speed range of this powerful Bowflex treadclimber is 0.5 - 4.5 mph(0.8 - 7 kph). The weight is 217 Lbs(99 kg) with maximum user weight at 300 Lbs(136 kg). You have 12 different intensity levels which you can adjust according to your fitness level. You'd better start slow if you're a beginner and gradually work your way up. Start with 10-15 minutes and with time you can do 30-45 minutes. At level 12 and a speed of 3 mph, you can expect to burn 300-350 calories in just 25-35 minutes. Burn off the excess calories, fats and weight with this supreme treadclimber from Bowflex. Lead a healthy lifestyle by doing your cardio training regularly from the comfort of your home.

Final Verdict: With a proven track record in terms of fitness results, Bowflex has come out with a winner in the TC20 Treadclimber. It has also won About.com 2012 Readers' Choice Award for Best Premium Treadmill.
