exercises to lose weight, you’ve come to the right place. There are a variety of options that can get you the sexy body you want, but we will present here two healthy and efficient options to choose from: treadmills and treadclimbers. Both are effective, but one is faster than the other. And we know that those who aim to shed extra pounds want fast results. So, what is the best option?

Treadmills are units that use one belt, powered by a sturdy motor. They work with high incline and speed levels, allowing users to program running and cardio workouts based on their fitness level.

Treadclimbers are cardio equipment that works as 3-all-in-one machine: treadmill, stair climber and elliptical. They incorporate 2 treadles, one for each foot. The main advantage is that you get to make two movements simultaneously, that is climbing and walking.

When talking about weight loss, the main concept is the intensity.

Treadmills incorporate specific weight loss programs with preset incline and speed values. However, to complete such a workout, you need to have speed endurance, and this is something you can build only over time. Some treadmill consoles allows you to insert age, weight and gender; therefore, giving accurate feedback on your performance. It’s important to be constantly aware of how your body is coping, in order to improve your performance and reach your weight loss goals.

Treadclimbers help you keep track of your performance, offer weight loss programs, and provide more intensity that will help you reach your goals 3 times faster. And you don’t need speed endurance to keep up the pace.

The treadclimber is not built for runners; this is something you should keep in mind. It is designed for low-impact walking, for climbing and stepping. On this machine, the factor that determines the intensity is resistance. Maximum speed supported is 4 mph. Yes, it’s lower than on a treadmill, but the movements of this machine make the difference.

The difference between treadmills and treadclimbers is the latter works all your core muscles at the same time, without risking to lose your breath while you work out. This is what leads to burning fat, and in 3 times shorter than a treadmill.

I started losing my extra pounds after 6-7 weeks of running on a treadmill. Even if there are a variety of weight loss workouts to do on the treadmill, it takes time to build endurance to finish a fat burning workout from the start to end.

However, I did have the chance to test treadclimbers as well. And yes, you can feel the difference in your body from the first week of working out. Even if you have little endurance at the beginning, 20 minutes on the tread climber are 3 times more intense than running on the treadmill at 10 mph.

No matter what your personal preference is, the most important fact is to exercise for a healthy heart and body. However, if you are determined to do exercises to lose weight, and you want this to happen fast, treadclimbers are the better choice.
