Simply one of the best treadmills you can buy and the Best Buy of all treadmills at or above the $6,000 price point! True is building a unique machine and it is rather exclusive too considering the price. With all of this in mind, there is nothing else I would want in a treadmill personally if I had an unlimited budget and the interface is wonderful. If price is no object and you have quietness and cushioning as big factors, forget commercial models and go with this True. True has spent years refining these aspects of the machines and they do a better job than anyone. This would be my personal choice if I were buying a machine and had the $8,000 plus to plunk down on it. With my bad back, the adjustable cushioning is just what I need because my wife likes the treadmill with a firmer feel. Also, these are so quiet that have a hard time hearing the machine run if no one is on the belt.

General Information

True was started in the early 80's by the Trulaske brothers and is known for their incredibly quiet operation and soft feel. Frank Trulaske is now the sole owner of True. True just keeps refining the quality of their machines and then presents a very solid product to the market. Quality and value are hallmarks of the True line and they are known for phenomenal customer service.

Quality / Philosophy

True uses good components on their machines but the key to True is their inarguably magnificent belt and deck combination, which is simply the best in the treadmill market. Since we have been talking to their engineers and designers for years, we understand how they make a quality product. They believe in taking care of customers- which goes a long way in today’s world.


True is one of the rocks in the business and will be around for a long time to come. Since the majority of True’s machines sell in the higher price range, we believe that the pressure felt by many American manufacturers won’t apply to True due to the low volume of units involved. If you are looking for a high quality machine and can afford it, True is the best option in the premium market.
