Trying the Bowflex Treadclimber

Ever since I started working at Flaman, I've always wanted to give the famous Bowflex Treadclimber a try. I've seen the infomercials that are so convincing and I, even though I work in marketing and know all the tricks of the trade, have been compelled to buy one. So, I figured that if I am going to buy one, I should obviously try it first.

Just after lunch today, I decided to bite the bullet and give it a try. We have a TC20 set up in our show room for customers to try, so I hopped on. After about one minute I started to feel it working in my hips and upper thighs. I couldn't' believe it! Two minutes go by and I am breathing heavily. The speed was only set at 2.5, how is this possible? I am definitely not in very good shape, but after the three-minute mark, I started sweating. How can this be affecting me so quickly?

By the time I got to the five-minute mark, I was done. I hadn't planned on doing a full on workout. I still have a whole half-day of work to do. My heart was pounding and my hips, glutes and thighs were kind of burning. I couldn't believe that after five minutes, it felt like I had gone for a 25 minute run. Think of what 15 or even 30 minutes would do! Needless to say, I was impressed. I think I'll make this machine a more frequent part of my new workout routine, and who knows, maybe I'll buy one for myself.
