The Bowflex TC10 and TC20 TreadClimbers share similar features, such as low-impact treadles and LCD screens that display speed, time and calories burned. The TC20 also includes a heart rate monitor.
Bowflex TreadClimber technology combines the cardio benefits of the treadmill, stair climber and elliptical machine. Two treadles operate on separate belts to simulate the benefits of walking, jogging and running on a treadmill. The treadles also deliver a pumping movement that provides aerobic benefits comparative to stair-climber machines.
The low-impact rise and fall of the treadles emulate the elliptical workout. Other features include variable speeds and custom programming to optimize the user's workout. Two users can program and store individual data, including fitness goals.
