Nautilus Treadclimer
I normally run for 15 minutes after my workout usually at 7 miles per hour. A few weeks back all the treadmills were being used and I decided to try out the Nautilus Treadclimer I was amazed how many calories it was burning up 500 in half an hour at 4 miles per hour with the treads to max height. Thatís faster calorie burning than my running.
What do you guys think Should I now ditch the running and switch to 20 minutes on the treadclimer three times per week? Anybody use it for their cardio ?
Its much more fun to use than running and easier on my 46 year old knees:biglaugh:

I use tread climber in my weekly routine exercise. I mix running and treadclimer. Still there is no substitute to the benefits of running and also the feeling of fresh air while doing the run and the view you can see while running.

If you don't have the time to go out in the parks or around your village, treadmills will be best for you. It has the same benefits as running or jogging however, there's no equal to running outside. You can get fresh air for your lungs, and you got to see other people. That can be therapeutic sometimes. It's like doing your exercise with no pressure.

yes I agree to mix running and tread climber, but hey if tread climber works for you then thats fine. I also used tread climber for cardio and it works great

I just bought a new treadmill. I think calorie count differs a lot from a walk in the park. I think 7 mph 120 kcal in 10 min on a treadmill is a decent number. So the 500 with 4 mph in 30 minutes is too much I think.

Treadclimber is good. I like mixing up my cardio though so I mix it up a lot. I would recommend it.
