I have a Treadclimber 5500. Yes it's expensive but it's worth it. It's easy on the joints-that's why I bought it- and it's worth it as long as you use it.

New goal- 120lbs
Bought one last year have dropped many pounds.Yes,money well spent.They usually run a financing special 18 months no interest.My payment was $66.00 starting out,every month it gets a little cheaper.With gas prices raising and gym membership isn't to cheap either,then you need gas to get there.I was kinda scared at first because i hadn't ever bought one before.I looked around for a used one.Yes,you can find them but what are you buying ?The ones a play it again sports wanted almost an new price for one.When you buy new you know what you are getting.It also,locks down for a treadmill or stepper, climber. It's really easy on your knees.To the person that wrote that it hurt her sister in laws knees,I believe is what was written.There is dials on my that you can set it from 1-12.12 being the highest.(on the climber part). If you can find one used and you know who well it's been taken care of....JUMP ON IT !!!They are worth a million bucks.I purchased the cheapest one at $1500.00 plus tax, on sale,getting the Bowflex mat free.I just wanted something simple to give me the results.A lot of the gyms only have a couple machines in there like them so when you want to use it there is someone on it.That is the only machine I really liked when I had my gym membership.Now they have on that is cheaper than that and I think it runs by your walking or running on it.I don't know if I would like that one or not.I would not trade mine for nothing in this world.Love,love,love it !!!
I don't have one as they are pricy. The ads make me want one. I've been looking for a used one.
I thought about getting one too, but I'm waiting awhile longer to purchase it.
Nope. I don't. But, I noticed your Saskatoon connections. I grew up in Saskatoon, but, married an American and have lived in Kansas for 26+ years. Still a Canadian citizen, though. Not willing to give that up. Was pretty willing to give up their 6 months of winter/8 months of non-walking weather, though. :-)
Ironically, my 21 y.o. daughter is engaged, living in Winnipeg and attending U of M, and getting married to a Canadian on May 22. Small world. Who'da thunk that she'd end up there?! She HATES the cold, and loves our 95-100F (35-38C) summer days, so, she doesn't even enjoy their summers. I, on the other hand, would love to be a snowbird that lives here for most of the year, but goes north for our hot and humid summers.

I don't but my sister-in-law does and she loves it. She has lost weight using it but if you have bad knees it is not a good thing to get. The incline bothers the knees of those who have knee problems. I used it while we were there and it did bother my knees so I had to do it without an incline. Good luck on your search!. I have a gazelle that I use when I cannot walk outside.
I am thinking about a treadclimber from bow flex. Does anyone have one? do you like it? is it worth the $.
In saskatoon we have about 8 months of the year where it is not outdoor weather and so I am looking for an indoor walking system.
Thanks for your feedback!
