B000gnish: I have the TC10. and I used to a have a treadmill. They are very different machines. The TC 10 console is horrible though. Bowflex should be emabarrssed about that. You can't walk on it with out holding on either so just hang on. It is great if you have bad joints because it can give you a workout without stressing the joints. It takes less room as well.
Get a treadmill if you are able to run without pain, otherwise look into other options such as a treadclimber
Tried True: OMG! I have been wanting the bowflex for a really long time but I was always apprehensive about the 'feel' of it. I even called them 3x to get financed for it but decided to wait for some weird reason. Im so glad you did a side by side review, cos I had no idea other companies were making similar machines. 'had nordic track machines before and they were always really good quality. I just checked the NT website, and am DEF going with the X9i machine!!!! Thanks guys!!!
Buck B: Thanks. I agree with your impressions. Glad I didn't buy it.
Ellis Drewery: This is a case of comparing apples and oranges. You have a vertically challenged individual and a long, tall drink of water trying to compare these two machines. The tall fellow sets up on the Nordic Track with the platform at a much more acute angle, requiring him to walk bowed over in order to hold on and not fall off the track. There's no way this lanky guy could have endured this uncomfortable position for much more than 3 minutes or so. No wonder he burned off a few more calories than the little fellow on the Treadclimber, who appeared to be walking at a much more comfortable rate and posture. Maybe the TC 10 doesn't have much of a complex console, but do you really need all those bells and whistles? A totally useless demonstration.
Crystal Boswell: Can you compare the X9i and the TC20? Maybe the differences between the X9i and the C600 both by NordicTrack? Thanks a million!
Stephanie Klunder: This is not a review, it's a "bash a bowflex" video. First of all obviously your going to burn more calories at a 40% incline! That's obvious to even the most ignorant treadmill user. So that point is void. Secondly, you screwed up the review by even doing the calorie comparison because as soon as your gigantico friend hopped off and you hoped on, you were doing fine! Even walked a sec. with no hands! (something your friend claimed he couldn't do!) This whole review was very disappointing. When comparing something your supposed to go over pros and cons of both machines. You didn't do that here. For instance, the treadclimber is smaller and there is less impact. That's a bonus for a lot of people! And who needs touch screen displays?! I have a phone! I can set that on there and watch whatever I want with it! This is just a rediculous way to root for your favorite machine, by hiding your bias in a "review" video... Bad move.
Rakibul Hasan: Thanks for the Video clip! Forgive me for butting in, I am interested in your initial thoughts. Have you thought about - Dalletante Magic Growth Blueprint (probably on Google)? Ive heard some awesome things about it and my work buddy at very last surprisingly increased height and got taller with it.
Antonio Ric: I'm sorry but your guys look like two idiots. I'm a personal trainer and I teach clients on both the tread climber and treadmills. That particular model has adjustments underneath the rollers. If you don't know how to read the proper techniques in the manual why give out false information unless you two idiots work for a competitor. The tread climber is an excellent machine that works wonders for my clients. But thx for the show dumb and dumber
jeff darnell: This review was biased as hell. Most consumer products are made for average size people so I would understand how a guy that is 6 foot 5 would have problems finding a treadmill and would not considered this a con, only in his case. Im sure he hit a button or the key to make it stop as to seeing how biased they were, just to make it look bad. The caloric burn counter is not an accurate representation and you would think a treadmill review guru would know that it is just an estimate. On the same exact machine with same setting the two guys would burn different calories.
Brian Bonell: Do these guys even know anything about treadmills? He literally asked what to call a tread belt. lol he doesn't even know how to walk on it he probably hit the clip for the safety key when it stopped.
Joe Primal: We want to stay in shape for hiking & backpacking in the mountains. Are these incline trainers the right tool for the job? I want something that will really kick my butt. EDIT - I went ahead and bought one of the x7i units. IDK about all the electronics, I want to workout not fidget with the internet, but the answer is YES, it will kick your butt. Awesome!
Carlton Vose: The information in this video might be a little outdated. As of 04-18-14: I just checked the NordicTrack X9i website and it's $2,999.99. The model TC10 of the TreadClimber, which is shown above, is $1,999.99. So it's 1,000 bucks cheaper, hence the lackluster display, which appears to be an accurate evaluation.
prettylolitadoll: This is like the bad infomercial you see at night.
Shane Logan: your stupid
Russ Boyes: This model is not made for 6'5" men with big feet. So biased of a review, it's actually very funny. Thanx for the laugh.
johnnyp211: Hi, I have a few issues with your video...(no offense) I have been thinking about buying the TC10 for a few months, but according to the bowflex website it was $999? not the $2200+ you and your 6-1/2 tall friend claim it is...2, what qualifies you to be a treadmill review guru??? According to the dictionary a Guru is a term for a "teacher, or master of a specific art or subject, mainly a teacher" According to your info your just some random guy who "used to" run cross country, and play soccer? Im not trying to be rude, but what makes you a Guru, im confused...???
tmcmellon: It's pretty obvious on the bias toward the Nordic track. I wonder how much $ he got out of this. 6 and a half feet tall and shaped like a pear." All the entertainment options" What a douche. Hardly a fitness expert.
Izzy So (Tejanito111): With all due respect to the bowflex people this junk is not worth $2000 at least not for me.....
kari darnell: I like how you compared the calorie count on both machines. But, wouldn't it have been a more balanced comparison if the NordicTrack was not set at the 40% incline? Naturally, more calories will be burned because it's at a higher incline. For a more accurate comparison, could you do another test between the two but have them set at the same incline percentage? Although, it does seem like the NordicTrack is better than the TreadClimber.
