Default anyone have a Bowflex TreadClimber??

With boating season around the corner and my snacking taking its toll, I've been thinking about getting one since our treadmill just passed away. Just wondering what people have heard about them.
They give you a 6 week trial period and have a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee (minus the shipping). I don't think they have retail stores. I'd really like to try it first. So, I'm trying to decide if this unit is any good since it's more expensive than a regular treadmill. I'd love to hear what others think of it. Thanks.

Forgot to ask. Do you know approx. weight? It doesn't say on their web page. I can call tomorrow and ask. Our son thinks we should get an elliptical machine. The web site says it is "ike the motion of an elliptical". Our plan is to go visit a few stores on Tuesday and check out what's available.

One of the reasons we bought the TC instead of an elliptical was the ability to adjust your gait. An elliptical fixes your footstep on the stirrups. The TC is like a treadmill. We like it alot, and at only 30 min 3X/wk I can handle it. It really gets you swettin quickly without exhausting you. I got 3000 model at Sportsmart for 1900. Its alot but its a professional piece of equipment and it weighs 150# roughly as I almost threw my back out lifting it into the bed of my P/U ouch

wish I was closer. Place an ad in the paper, you probably could sell it for half price.
