What Is This Exercise Machine?

This device has become a popular alternative to the treadmill or elliptical machine over the last few years. It’s designed to be low impact, relatively quiet, and easy to use in your home. What is more, it is constructed with moving style pedals, or “treadles”, which move up and down with the user’s stride.

The inclined angle and the constant movement make this extremely useful at burning calories, even though you only need to walk – no running is necessary!

Advantages & Disadvantages Of Treadclimber

There are quite a few obvious advantages to choosing this one over a treadmill or elliptical device:

  • Ease Of Use
  • Low-Impact Design
  • Relatively Easy Set Up

All these make this workout option great for most people.

It’s a body-friendly option for those who have medical issues such as arthritis or limited range of motion; the elderly or pregnant women; or folks who are moderately overweight. However, everyone’s condition is unique and it’s best to talk to a doctor before beginning a new exercise.

The disadvantages to a Treadclimber are few, but they’re important to note:

  • No Running: You cannot run on it – it is not designed for that – so those who like to run will find that it may be a little too slow-paced for their tastes.
  • 300 Pounds Max: It has also not been constructed to hold users over 300 pounds – and although walking is a great workout for the obese, the machine simply can’t hold some heavy users.

Machine Evaluation & Comparison

Three-Different-Exercise-Machines

  1. TC vs. Elliptical Machine – These are both beneficial to users as they both have minimal impact on your joints. They operate smoothly and can keep track of your heart rate, calories burned, and so on. However, perhaps the most notable difference between the two is that with the elliptical, you can utilize your arms as well, while with the TC, you can’t. However, it uses incline to burn more cal., so it’s up to you which one you prefer.
  2. TC vs. Treadmill - While both can use varying tread speeds, a treadmill can increase to greater levels. However, at the same time it is significantly more damaging to your knees, as it is a high-impact dvice. On the contrary the Treadclimber is easy on joints and comfortable to use.
  3. TC vs. Incline Trainer – Both products use incline to boost the amount of fat & energy burned in a short amount of time. The key difference between the two is that the former´s treadles move with the user, minimizing impact and helping the user to keep their balance. The latter one can go to higher levels, but it causes higher stress for your knees and is not as ergonomically designed as the TC.

Online Places To Purchase A Used One

    I’ve been really curious about the treadclimber – glad I stumbled on your review! I had to give up my treadmill when I moved into my second floor apartment. Do you know if the TC5 is apartment-friendly? My landlord asked me to stop with the treadmill because the pounding was driving my neighbor below me crazy.

    • Hamilton

      That’s a really good question, I hadn’t thought of that before. I also live in a condo complex, and while there’s no one living underneath me right now, there probably will be soon.

  • Danielle

    Thanks for this review on the treadclimber. I have actually been very curious about it and this has been quite helpful, thanks.

  • Luke

    Thanks for the useful review! I’ve always seen the treadclimber at the gym, but never had the curiosity to use it. it seemed like beginner stuff, but I guess I’ll try it out :)

  • Anne B

    I really like the treadclimber, it’s one of the few gym pieces that really get me relaxed while working on it. I can just workout and read a book at the same time XD Although that’s not what I’m there for, it’s a nice reprise from my real workout, helping me cool down.

    • Fuscia

      I also know theat relaxation isn’t really what I’m at the gym for, but at least it’s something, right? I get so much reading to do between work and school, I figure it must be a little better to do my reading on the treadclimber than just sit home and do it…

  • Treadbanger

    This is how I first started working out…first this, then the threadmill, then running outside over flat fields and hills :D This article is very informative for newbies, but for me its just taken me to nostalgia land! I miss it.

    • Braham

      Kind of jealous to know that you get to run outside. we have so much snow here that the roads are narrow and the banks are high – not very safe for runners on the road with cars whizzing by.

  • Cristina

    It may be great for begginers and cardiobunnies, but I always hated this thing. Why do you need a machine for something you can easily do outside? Go find some steps, do a Rocky! But I guess it helps get people in a workout mood or something.

  • Peter K.

    I just started working out and this really helps me. I can’t run much because everything jiggles, but this I can do, and until I lose more weight this will help me get to my goals!
    Really good article, thank you!

    • Pebbles

      Lol :) Maybe I’m a little more overweight than I want to admit, but running hurts my knees. That’s why I’m looking at the treadclimber :)

  • Raz

    I really like the bowflex system, I know someone who literally transformed their body with it. They have a similar system in my gym, but I really wish I had enough room for a bowflex in my own house.

  • kikilasp

    We just purchased the Treadclimber and we love it!! We live in a country where snow and ice is with us for 7 months and its very cold outside so walking outside is not an option. I also have a permanent ankle injury and I need a low impact exercise which I get from the Treadclimber. My husband has that midriff belly and he is using the treadclimber which he enjoys.
