Bowflex TreadClimbers are exercise machines that combine the motions of elliptical, treadmill, and stair climbing machines. The TreadClimber uses a combination of walking and stepping motions for a cardio workout, and it comes with adjustable resistance levels to provide a weight-bearing exercise.What is the difference between the TreadClimber models?
Two common Bowflex TreadClimber models are the TC100 and the TC200. They are both electrically powered and feature bottle holders, media holders, backlit displays, and USB ports. They also both have wheels that enables them to be moved to a low-traffic area when not in use. Still, there are a few differences between these two models.

This feature lets two different people monitor their progress toward their individual workout goals. The TC100 tracks time, distance, speed, and calories burned per workout.
