The TreadClimber Works
on December 20, 2012
Last Nov 2011, my doctor told me that if i did not get serious about my fitness, i was going to become diabetic and have other major problems. On that day, I weighed 273 pounds, had a blood glucose # of 122, cholestrol # of 206, trigylcerides of 304 and my hemoglobin A1C was 6.6. i Am just under 6 feet tall.
I bought my TreadClimber TC10 as a Christmas present to myself (and my wife) and started to walk. It was really hard at first. for the first few weeks I could only go for 10 minutes at 1 mph.
Between Jan and Aug I had 1 number to watch.. my weight. I went back to the doctor in August, the weight was 239... 34 pounds lost. I was a lot more nervous about the numbers I could not see and anxiously awaited his review of my blood work. Oh that date, my blood glucose # was 106, my cholesterol # was 137, trigylcerides 119 and my hemoglobin A1C was 5.7. His message in August to me was 1) don't stop what you are doing and 2) your actions for the past 8 months made a big difference in your health.
Its now almost Christmas 2012.. just about 1 year after I bought the treadclimber. My weight is now at 222#, and tomorrow (12/21) i have my blood work done again for my next doctor visit in Jan. I am now spending 45 minutes on the treadclimber 4-6 nights a week. I just hit a new max distance of 2.51 miles in 45 minutes topping out at out at 4 mph for the last 7-8 minutes.. Most weeks, i am getting as far as 12-14 miles on this machine.
Thank you for a machine that is helping me get my health back. I am 52 years old and feel fitter than ast any other time in my life. I am not yet done with losing weight... and hope to be below 200# by spring.
