Bowflex Introduces Next Generation of Popular TreadClimber Cardio Trainer

Nautilus, Inc. (NYSE:NLS) has introduced a new model in its family of Bowflex(R) TreadClimber cardio trainers, the Bowflex TreadClimber TC5300 cardio trainer.

Nautilus, Inc. (NYSE:NLS) has introduced a new model in its family of Bowflex(R) TreadClimber cardio trainers, the innovative cardio machines that help people get the body they want in half the time and with less perceived effort through a quick, effective and low-impact workout.

The Bowflex TreadClimber TC5300 cardio trainer helps people burn calories fast by using dual-motion treadles that combine three exercise styles in one easy to use machine. The exercise motion combines the forward action of a treadmill, upward action of a stair climber, and low-impact motion of an elliptical trainer. With varying
speed and resistance options, and a more natural, comfortable stride through redesigned longer treadles, the TreadClimber 5300 trainer provides users with an exceptional cardiovascular workout.

"This product is perfect for time-strapped consumers who want to achieve an excellent cardio workout at home in a short amount of time, and with minimal impact on ankles, knees and hips," said Tim Hawkins, chief customer and marketing officer for Nautilus, Inc. "Our customer
satisfaction rates on TreadClimber units are above 90 percent. Judging from demonstration tests and initial sales, we believe the enhancements on this model will garner an even higher rating."

The unit includes more advanced electronics than previous models, including a unique "floors climbed" electronics feature, along with precise "calories burned" calculations based upon body weight, intensity, distance and speed. Its speed can increase to 4.5 miles per hour with 12 intensity settings. It also includes easy-to-read workout statistics through a large LCD display, an ergonomic bar with two grip options for added comfort, a convenient rear step-deck for easier
mounting and dismounting, and a heart rate monitor.

"The TreadClimber cardio machine continues to be popular among all age groups and fitness levels," said Jay Blahnik, an international trainer of fitness instructors, author of Full Body Flexibility, and advisor to the Nautilus Institute. "Its revolutionary design and
amazing calorie burning potential set it apart from other cardio trainers. This new design with longer treadles, improved electronics, and ergonomic bar make working out even more comfortable."

The product is backed by a Bowflex(R) 100% satisfaction guarantee, along with a two-year warranty on hydraulics, three-years on electronics and parts, and five years on the motor.

The Bowflex TreadClimber TC5300 retails for $2,899 and can be financed as low as $43 per month. It is available only directly from the company, and can be ordered by contacting or by calling 800-694-4027. Nautilus offers optional "white glove" home delivery including assembly for as
low as $99.
