Product Description

Amazon.com

Whether you're just starting to get in shape or are a seasoned athlete, Bowflex's Treadclimber TC3000 Cardio Machine is a home fitness machine that offers an array of electronics and features to push your workout to the next level. Similar in function to a treadmill, this low-impact machine is engineered to burn fat without pounding your joints. It has unique dual treadles (rather than a single belt area surface) that rise up to cushion each step. This design eliminates the jarring impact of hard, flat surfaces and reduces the joint and muscle strain that can be part of other workout machines.

It has twelve intensity settings to tailor your workout specifically to your fitness and comfort level while six electronic functions allow you to track your speed, time, distance, calories burned, calories per minute, and total steps taken during your workout. Five LCD readout windows allow you to see all vital workout stats easily. Large footboards alongside the tread belts make starting or stopping exercise safe and easy. The speed of the TC3000 adjusts from 0.7 to 4.0 miles per hour for a casual stroll to serious power walking.

The TC3000 features an LCD screen display to track your speed, time, distance, calories burned, calories per minute, and total steps taken.
Key Features:
  • Maximum speed: 0.7-4.0 miles per hour/1.1-6.4 kilometers per hour

  • Electronic functions: speed, distance, time, calories per minute, total calories, and total steps
  • Computer indicator shows calories per minute and total calories burned

I got my machine earlier this year. As the other reviewer indicates, at first I really didn't like it. It was awkward and hard to use. I was really worried.

The second time I used it I slowed down the speed and worked on getting the feel for the machine. On a treadmill I always walk at about 4.5 MPH. So I set this machine initially to 4.0 MPH. That is much, much too fast for a beginner. (Don't worry it is still a good workout at 3.0 MPH.) That did it.

Now it is the easiest and best exercise machine I have ever used. I get a better workout than a treadmill with lots less stress and pain in my knees. It is more natural for me than an elliptical.

If you get one of these, you will love it. You just have to stick to it for a few times (it took me two workout sessions) to master it.

Verified Purchase
Because of the business of my life, I do not have the time to make it to a gym on a routine basis. Therefore, I take great consideration when it comes to investing in a piece of work-out equipment. I have been diligently using an elliptical for over a year now and it's done a fairly good job of working my lower body. But, it gets boring and it started to make my hips ache.

After researching the TreadClimber for over a year (the cost was a big factor for me), I decided I'd purchase it because it not only worked my lower body, but was versatile enough for cardio. So the "three-pieces-of-equipment-in-one" was a big selling point to me.

If I could go back, I would not have bought the TreadClimber and here's a few reason's why:

1. The hydraulics with the stepping are awkward and they do not go up and down on their own (cheaply engineered for the price I was paying). So, if you are like me and do not walk "perfectly", the machine will pull to one side - not moving up and down evenly. Therefore, you are spending more time in your workout "getting leveled out" then working effectively.
2. It is small width-size, so I cannot walk without smashing my hands into the side bars.
3. The treadles are slim and if you have larger feet (especially once you have sneakers on - I wear a woman's size 10), you are bound to hit the motionless sides and get catapulted several feet behind you.
4. Because of the increased chances of hitting the motionless sides, you must FOCUS on the treadles constantly, if you are to get the best work-out - which means NOT holding onto the side bars. It is discouraging and distracting to be staring at the belt for the entire workout.
5. Do not believe that the stair stepper is of any use.

Thankfuly, we bought this machine through Amazon, and they have given us wonderful customer service so we're not out nearly 2 grand!

This machine does not work properly. We were never able to make the treadles go up and down more that a few inches. Regardless of the setting and regardless of the size of the person using it. Sent the first one back - received the 2nd and it worked exactly the same!!

Unfortunately for Bowflex, they provide you with an instructional DVD. Unfortunate, in that it is obvious that the machine sitting in your home does not work like the one on the DVD. Not even close!!

Please do not waste your money! We called Bowflex to get some customer support (if that's what you want to call it) and really, I think they're aware that this is a cheap product. If even 1/2 the people that order this peice of junk keep it, Bowflex still makes a fortune!

Not only does it not work, but it makes a tremendous amount of noise....not working. Buyer beware!!

I had originally been using a Cadence G40 treadmill ($200 from wal-mart) as the main piece of equipment for my exercise routine. Then, I would get off that and use my husband's elliptical or my exercise bike. I was using 3 pieces of equipment and they were very bulky because we had it all set up in our dining room. Then, I saw a commercial on t.v. advertising the treadclimber, saying that you could burn more calories in half the time as you would on a treadmill. The girl on the commercial made it look so easy and enjoyable. My husband looked it up on the internet and we found out that it doubles as a treadmill. I thought, what more could I need than that? 2 things in 1! That meant that it would take up less space than all the other equipment. I made what I now consider the mistake of selling my treadmill and was prepared to sell the elliptical and bike at a cheap price, but no one bought them so they are still sitting in our house and in a way I am glad. We bought the treadclimber after selling the treadmill and waited for what seemed like quite awhile for our payment to be processed and for it to arrive. We came home one night and had 4 boxes on our front porch. My husband took quite a lot of time assembling it himself which was no easy task. It is heavy equipment to put together. I tried the treadclimber function after watching the dvd and learning how to use it and what I know is that if you do not look at the chart that it comes with telling you what workout level you should be on according to your weight, you will barely get the treadles to move. I tried putting it on lower settings, but I could not get the stepping motion. I had my feet as far forward as possible on the treadles, but the climb counter was not detecting my steps.Read more ›
