Bowflex treadmill calibration fail treadclimber
Models: TreadClimber TC5300
My husband and I purchased the Bowflex TreadClimber 5300 because we believed the hype. It is a good work out. BUT the service is horrible. If you need repairs (and this machine is very prone to techical malfunction, you are expected to call an 800# and the operator walks you through a series of diagnostic steps. You actually need to remove a protective cover, crawl around on the floor and inspect the machine. The last time we had an issue (we ending up needing a new console) it took five phone calls (and much frustration) to get any real assistance. When I was about to give up and I asked if there was any way to have a trained technition come to my home. The service rep said that the warranty didn't cover that and it would be at my expense. "FINE" I said, only to learn that the company authorized to service this expensive clothes rack doesn't have any one working in my area. I DO NOT recommend this machine at all.
I purchased a treadclimber and could not get it to work correctly. The pedals kept sticking and stalling. I called Bowflex and they walked me through several repair steps

For muscles2008-06-24 03:49:36 by chidame
To heal and grow, they need recovery time to repair all the little tears in them made during resistance exercise. working the same muscles every day on your bowflex is counterproductive. to see progress faster, giving the muscles time to heal by going to a split routine for every day or a whole body routine every other day would be a better move.
would you have time for cardio exercise if you had a stationary bike, treadmill or elliptical at home?
fwiw, i agree with everyone who is telling you to lose weight, gain muscle, and focus on an end goal weight later. i'm assuming what you really want is to look great, be healthy and be in the best shape of your life.

Our home gym is in our basement. We have a what I think you're talking about for the standard weight exercises, a treadmill, and an elliptical. Been thinking about getting a rowing machine, but haven't yet. We also have a TV with VHS/DVD and mats down for stretching (and some lifting).
I don't know if you know what you're doing with weights, but you might want to get a book to help you get...'re working all of the major muscle groups. I know I've mentioned it on here before, but my favorite is "Getting Stronger" by Bill Pearl, which was the textbook for the weightlifting class I took in college. We had considered getting a Bowflex, but decided that I'd try sticking to a routine in there for a few months to see if I got the benefit I wanted without crowding our space more, and I did.
