TreadClimber Vs. Treadmill Calories

By William McCoy

If you're fed up with running at night in inclement weather, you don't have to give up your goal of keeping in shape. Instead, take your workout indoors by investing in a treadmill or TreadClimber. Both machines provide a number of workout benefits, but using the TreadClimber leads to a faster calorie burn as you attempt to build a fit body.

More Than Double the Burn

The Bowflex TreadClimber helps you burn calories at a significantly faster rate than a workout on a treadmill, according to an Adelphi University study. The study found that a 180-pound person burns about 348 calories during a half-hour workout at 3 mph on the TreadClimber. The same person burns about 135 calories in 30 minutes of walking on a treadmill at 3 mph.

Climbing Toward a Healthy Body

Regardless of your reason for exercising on a TreadClimber, this workout can not only help you burn calories to burn fat but also strengthen your muscles. Bowflex notes this workout also leads to increased energy, stronger bones, a reduction in back pain and less risk of heart disease.
