    Dec 22, 2003 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Efficient Workout
    Cons: Price Is Way Too High

    Summary: You may have started to see TreadClimber infomercials on TV, these are becoming (surprisingly) popular. I was first amazed at how much they cost. I figured they must be really great for such a high price tag. After trying all three models at a local ... read more

    Pros: Elevates heart rate. Compact fooprint. Burns calories.
    Cons: No hands use of unit hard to master. Weight loss claims exaggerated

    Summary: During the winter months (central Texas), I tried walking to get some cardio in and burn calories. I would walk for 60 - 90 minutes and only burn maybe 150 calories based on my Polar heart rate monitor (S710). It was hard to elevate my heart rate. I have ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: genious design, good customer support, strenuous yet low impact work-out.
    Cons: Difficult to assemble without assistance of another person; could use cushions on handles.

    Summary: I purchased the Nautilus TC5000 in september of this year to replace an aging Nordic-track eliptical (the e7). The TC5000 consists of two independent treadles which, with the support of hydraulic support arms which offer resistance and a rocker ... read more

    Pros: Small space, GREAT workout in little time.
    Cons: Pricey.

    Summary: I've been looking at the Treadclimber for nearly a year now, but I won't buy anything I can't see. Knowing the American Home Fitness in Taylor, Mi. carries Nautilus equipment, I'd stop in occasionally to see if they had it. The manager there took my ... read more

    Pros: seems to be a heck of a workout!
    Cons: price, price, price
