Is space a major concern for you in your home? Is that why you have, until now, not even contemplated investing in an exercise machine that will enable you to work out from the comfort of your own home? It’s fair to say that in the past, it was harder to find suitably sized exercise equipment for home use that offered the same level of efficiency and performance as those at the local gym.
That was in the past though. If you are not able to attend the gym and want something you can fit easily into your schedule, without using all the available floor space in your property, why not considered the Bowflex TreadClimber TC200. We’ve already featured the TC100 on this site and we thought that was a great piece of kit. The TC200, though, blows that out of the water. Keep reading to find out why this machine could be the best investment you make.
30 years and counting. That’s how long Bowflex have been working in the fitness industry. Crafting and supplying high performance and innovative exercise equipment to homes up and down the country and throughout the world. The popularity of the company is testimony to fact that their designs are some of the best in the business.
The TC200 is a case in point. If you have ever attended the gym in the past and miss using the different cardio machines, because they can target different muscle groups and it’s just nice to run through different motions, then this is for you. In a small and compact design, you get the benefit of not just one or two machines, but three. This is essentially a hybrid of a stair stepper, elliptical trainer and a good old-fashioned treadmill. As impressive as that is, that’s not the only feature we love about this new and improved version of the TC100.
5 Different Workout Programs
As is a common feature with most exercise machines above a certain price point, with the TC200 you get a selection of pre-installed workouts to choose from. These exist to make your life easier and give you the kind of workout you are looking for without having to fiddle with settings and adjust. You can just step on and get going with the 5 they offer – Interval, Distance Goal, Time Goal, Calorie Goal and Just Walk. Pick the one that suits you each time and you will have a worthwhile session.
3 Different Workouts in One
Although each machine offers great advantages to the user, it can be a bit boring and tedious performing the same motion, after a while. Which is why, like the TC100 before it, the TreadClimber TC200 works as a combination or hybrid of a stair stepper, elliptical and treadmill. You can really work out on this machine as if you were using any one of those individual machines. What’s more impressive, again like the TC100, the only thing you need to switch, or change is you. Just by changing your movement, you can switch easily between treadmill, elliptical and stair stepper styles of exercise. The upshot of this, apart from having a more versatile workout, is that you benefit from high-impact results, while having a low-impact experience in terms of the pain and strain you don’t feel.
Backlit, Clear and Crisp Display Console with Bluetooth Connectivity
As you’d expect from most modern machines these days, the Bowflex offers Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity which means you can hook up your phone or tablet and benefit from the extras offered by the TreadClimber app. The display console is fully backlit and offers all the controls you need to adjust and alter your workout in one easy to reach and use place. All the metrics you would expect are displayed, so you can always keep track of your progress.
- Option of 5 different workout programs
- 3-in-1 Cardio workout machine
- Easy to assemble, setup and use
- Achieve better results working out less with this machine
- Adjustable resistance and incline options are not included
Why pay for one device when you can pay for one that offers the benefits of using three in one? That’s the serious question you need to ask yourself when deciding whether the TreadClimber TC200 from Bowflex is for you or not. If space isn’t a problem in your home, we would still argue that it is better to save the large amounts of money three individual machines would cost and just invest in this. But that is up to you. This will give you a great workout, whatever you are looking to achieve.
