Probably one of the most interesting things about going to the gym is related to the opportunity of working with advanced sports equipment, each particular machine being used for a certain specific purpose, like exercising a certain muscle group or helping users lose some weight.
However, since neither home users nor gym owners are willing to spend that much money on specialized equipment nowadays, the various manufacturers of such products have begun to come up with all sorts of complex devices, capable of providing numerous types of workouts.
And that's exactly the case with the particular model you're about to see as follows, namely the TreadClimber TC6000 presented by the Bowflex company, which offers users no less than three major different types of workouts, without counting the additional possibilities.
Thus, the device can work in treadmill mode (the belts allow users to move forward, at speeds of up to 4.5 mph or 7.2 km/h), stairclimber mode and elliptical mode, which combines the action of the two modes mentioned above.
Beside allowing users to carry out several types of workouts, the TC6000 can also successfully replace a human personal trainer. And that's because it comes pre-loaded with the Bowflex Advantage application, which tracks the total workout volume, last 5 Fitness Tests, and keeps an eye on your weight loss progress, for up to 5 users.
Additionally, the device allows users to customize their workouts, since they will be able to choose from the available 12 intensity settings or 12 exercise programs. The device even calculates just how many calories a person has burned, based on body weight, intensity setting, distance and speed, and display the result on the large multifunction, backlit LCD display.
Since it's quite a complex product, clearly designed for public gyms, the TreadClimber TC6000 is quite an expensive machine, selling for an estimate 3,500 US dollars. However, customers will also get quite a few additional products within the sales package, including here a Wireless Heart Rate monitor, TreadClimber instructional DVD with Owen McKibbin and Fast Fat Loss Now!
