Before you buy another piece of workout equipment, you need to know about the newest line from Bowflex; the Bowflex TreadClimber.
While most of their products sell themselves, I thought it’d still be valuable to write up this Bowflex TreadClimber review, especially if you’re looking to get in shape in the New Year.
UPDATE: Bowflex has a coupon to save over $400 and to get free shipping on the TreadClimber. Just use this Bowflex Coupon Code: T4HFSA1

Bowflex TreadClimber Review
Here’s the twitter version: The Bowflex TreadClimber combines three cardio machines into one better solution, so you can burn more, faster. It takes the best of the treadmill, stair stepper, and elliptical and combines it into a dynamic, cardio workout that burns about 350 calories in just ½ an hour.
You’d spend and entire hour walking on a treadmill to get those results! Here’s the thing, it’s obviously not a magic pill, so it requires you to get up and to do the workout. But if you can shave off hours each week and still burn the same calories, you can spend your time doing other things that you love.
Sound too good? I know, but here’s the Facts:
The Bowflex TreadClimber combines an incline step along with a continuous track while providing resistance and elliptical motion. The combination of these kinematic properties means less impact on your joints. Having a slight incline forces you to strengthen your hip flexor and extensor muscles while the fluid flow keeps your joints in a low plane. This combination activates the lower muscle groups efficiently and gives you a better workout.
Here’s the general feature list of the Bowflex TreadClimber:
• Burn up to 40% more than a stair climber • Burn up to 3.5X more than a treadmill at the same speed • 6 Weeks Fitness Results Guarantee • Bilateral Independent Treadles • 3 TreadClimber options to choose
Bowflex TreadClimber TC20
The latest in the Bowflex TreadClimber family is the TC20. Here’s the spec list for the TC20:
- G.O. Coach technology tracks goals and progress
- Personalized workouts
- 3 Landmark Challenge settings
- Fully backlit LCD screen
- 4.5 mph max readout speed
- Integrated heart rate monitor
- 2 user program storage
- Compact design for storage
- 3 year warranty coverage
- List Price: $3,200 (See the discount below)
Bowflex TreadClimber TC10
The TC10 is a more affordable TreadClimber and the best seller as of this year. Here are the features of the TC10:
- 4 Screen LCD Display (Speed, Distance, Time, Calories)
- 4 mph max readout speed
- Single user program storage
- Compact design for easy storage
- 2 year warranty coverage
- List Price: $2,100 (See the discount below)
Bowflex also makes a TreadClimber TC5 that is motor free and starts around $1,000. While the quality of Bowflex makes this a great machine, the TC10 and TC20 are favorites among users because of the specs listed above. If you can’t afford the TC10 or TC20, the TC5 may be a good option for you!
Bowflex TreadClimber Summary:
Here’s the thing – if you are limited in space in your home and don’t want 3+ machines crowding your guest bedroom or living room, check out the TreadClimber.
- It’s affordable for exercise equipment ($1,000- $3,000)
- It’s compact and storage friendly.
- It’s efficient and saves you time.
I really like the interactive backlit display and “G.O. Coach” on the TC20 that provides a customized workout program (for up to two users). It keeps you motivated, especially with programs like the 3 “Landmark Challenges” settings to on track you to achieve further distances.
At the end of the day, the TreadClimber is ideal for those who enjoy walking, hiking, staying active, all while putting less stress on your joints. This is an especially attractive feature for those who are 50+ years and active.
