The Versa Climber claims to burn 206% more calories than a standard treadmill. Increasing calorie burn is one way to lose more weight, but staying dedicated to a home workout program can be difficult for some dieters. While the machine may be more effective, the ability to work out for 20 minutes every day may be hard for dieters who work long hours. A lack of nutritional information or dieting tips may leave the dieter thinking they can eat what they want and still lose weight.
