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!!!!
Buck B: Thanks. I agree with your impressions. Glad I didn't buy it.
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!
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
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!
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
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
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.
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.
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
But thx for the show dumb and dumber
prettylolitadoll: This is like the bad infomercial you see at night.
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
Shane Logan: your stupid
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
rose bud: definitely going with a NordicTrack at Sears ~ better quality for the price
~ much better customer service too
Thanks Guru ~ Sorry I don't have any curse words to add ~ I'll be taking it
out on the machine lol YEAH BABY
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...???
thecommish2012: Here is what i dont like, the dude was exhausted on the nordic track after
2 mins! How could you do a 30-45 min workout like that? Answer, you
couldnt. So the point is, sustained heart rate increase on the boflex.
Duno, seems logical.
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: With all due respect to the bowflex people this junk is not worth $2000 at
least not for me.....
Treadmill Review Guru: The tall guy in the video is 6'5" and has this machine in his basement
where the ceilings are about 8'6" he said. He told me he has plenty of
clearance, probably a foot or more. So that said, the NordicTrack will (at
40% incline) add about 12-15 inches to your height.
Ngan Luong: I think this is an honest review I've ever see. But I think this is just a
personal opinion. I see you do not like the Bowflex Treadclimber. I want to
buy TC10 and I've read a lot of articles review, I see many great comments
about the Bowflex Treadclimber. For example, this video:
FitnessEX: Thank you for a machine that is helping me get my health back. I am 52
years old and feel fitter than ast any other time in my life. I am not yet
done with losing weight... and hope to be below 200# by spring. here is the
link to it in case anyone is interested:amzn.to\16CWkVD
Nicole E: They are walking on the tread climber wrong. You need to walk to the front
of the machine. He's walking at the end of it and that's wrong. He's also
way to big for the machine. Very biased review
EE Videos: Purchased a TC10 & I'm happy. Not sure if it's because the tester is 6'6",
but I haven't experienced issues with slipping off the back of the machine.
If you keep the speed and resistance in synch & follow the instructions
("Keep your hands on the Handlebars and stay as near the front of the
machine as is comfortable"), sliding off the back shouldn't be an issue.
TC10 is more compact, though it's not designed for running, so I'd expect
the calorie-burning potential to be greater w/ the x9i.
AllenTax: Hmm both guys are yummy.Stop wineing and drink something. Of course there
be miss cals. As the 2 guys heights,body type,incline.
lionness14: Lol im sorry I noticed towards the end the other guy which as you could see
compared to the freakin giant had no problem like the other guy on the
bowflex because he is a lot smaller. Also they sell products for this
company Nordic for sure they keep talkin about how bowflex doesn't have all
those features like the Nordic okay to me bowflex designed the machine so
you can freakin workout not to have sex with the damn thing ohh u need music
get a freakin radio and get a life so dumb
Garth Galvin: Looking at the person on the nordictrack that just looked awkward on the
back... I would hope the level does not have to be so steep... did not look
at all comfortable.
Pushpa Raj Poudel: You're right. you can make your workout sessions much more productive if
your eating the right foods to avoid fat and belly. Listen to this do you
know about the 7 odd foods that kill belly fat if you don't know about them
you must see this. you can see it here bit.ly/17mWCAV?=dhxhq
Mslizzybluts: I agree. I was ready to order the middle treadclimber but this has changed
my mind. Did you get the Nordic Track x9i? I had the Nordictrack ski
machine (can't remember the name but it was in the 1980's) and it was a
well made product.
LASASHAisIMLOVED07: how is this video misleading they are giving their personal opinions and
reviews i can definitely see why the taller guy wouldn't want it it is
obviously not for a person of his height. And money wise the Tread climber
is more expensive that i know from doing my own research.
lionness14: Exactly there is a max weight for the bowflex ass well
doubanjiang: Good review, but the calorie burn comparison was a joke. You should've had
the machines at the same degree of incline.
Upul Abeyrathna: Hiya, have you experienced "Fat Blast Formula"? (check on google) You will
learn about the serious crimes we commit against our bodies. With "Fat
Blast Formula", you will discover how to lose weight fast.
Joe Johnson: hey would you mind if I posted this review on a website?
rohit patro: if you dudes need to get ripped prompt without wasting a one additional
minute in the gym, then you should watch this video tutorial SIXPP.COM The
unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit is of great worth in God's
IboHuasca: Just look at the two machines... At first glance I can see multiple
benefits to the Nordictrack. It just seems like the two tread belts would
slip on the bowflex. That's basically twice the moving parts, and twice the
potential for breakdown. I'm not sure if the review was legitimate or not,
but even if it wasn't, valid points were made.
apinori: Hi, i know its been a year but is there another model of the Nordic track
that is out now? I was definitely sold on the bowflex until i started my
research, im glad i came across this. Thanks!
itsmeamanda01: $1,999??? I looked it up online and it's $2999!
Treadmill Review Guru: Mayo Clinic would STRONGLY disagree with your ignorant statement:
mayoclinic (dot) com/health/exercise/SM00109
afsaldurranihotmail: dude learn about physique, cals burned and body before commenting on others
and becoming guru of some kind no disrespect intented towards u i m just
telling my point and that lot of other fitness guys will say that too have
Kelly Newcomb: This was a very helpful video. I've thought the TreadClimber looked neat,
but I loved the incline and decline of the x9i. This detailed video has me
convinced that the the x9i is what I want. I'm training for the Nashville
half marathon, and the hills have me concerned, as I live in a very flat
area. This would give me a good base to add to the little hill drills I can
do around here.
afsaldurranihotmail: how do they disagree i read the website u posted to me and the maximum
calories burned in an hour for 73kg person there is 861 lets make that 900
break cals down to 1 min equals 15 cals i said in my comment max is 15-20
cals for human body to burn it proves my point and the machine showing 60
cals in 2.30 mins is not possible any human way all machines show higher
cal burns then what actually u burn.
Jp1973poet: These comments are so fake. Don't be fooled. Tread climber is 110%!! The
Nordic track is ok also but for them to bash it is a joke. My wife lost 42
pounds in 4 months and loves it and I lost 32 pounds. And I'm 6 foot 1 and
weighed 240 when I started it. The best machine out there. They work for
Nordic track. Don't be fooled. These guys are fake
Treadmill Review Guru: Evan, I respect your opinion, and I'm glad that you love your treadclimber!
I simply made this review to compare the two machines because I was quite
surprised that the treadclimber was lacking in areas that I didn't realize
until I received the machine myself. Obviously a person doesn't have to
choose to use the full incline at all times on an incline trainer, but that
is the beauty of an incline trainer - you have the option to do so, but can
still get a normal treadmill workout if you want.
Robert McCurry: Worst customer service ever! Machine worked for 2 weeks. Over 30 minutes on
hold everyday that I have called. Have asked to talk to supervisor and no
returned calls or emails. White glove set up what a laugh! Buyer beware!
Johnnymailman: Well it's kind of like the old apples and oranges comparison. Treadmills
are for "high impacted" running work outs, and tread climbers are for low
impact (easier on the knees and ankles) work out.
DeathPixie23: How much does that 6'6'' guy weight?? The maximum weight on the bowflex is
300! Might also have caused problems!!!
