How long will the TRUE 950 last?

True has added another solid offering to the $6000 and up category with the 950 treadmill addition to their line. Constructed with commercial-grade materials, the True 950 is a high-end model weighing in at 324 lbs. and capable of holding users up to 350 lbs. The warranty offering by True shows they believe in the build of this machine. Their warranty covers a lifetime on the frame, 30 years on the motor, 10 years on parts, and 1 year on labor. A moderate to heavy jogger should get many years of genuinely supurb use from this treadmill with proper maintenance.

Brief Overview

The True 950 is designed with high quality features and materials, but are they enough to make them stand out from their competitors? We realize spending over $7000 is not budget-friendly for most households. Also, the offering of an orthopedic belt might cause a concern to regular users as they are typically thicker than normal belts and can cause more the motor and drive electronics to have more wear and tear. Nonetheless, True has been pumping out quality treadmills for years and they do back this offering with a fantastic warranty.

Overall Quality

Whether you are a seasoned runner, claim to be able to run a marathon but barely make it through your first 5k, or have never run before in your life, the True 950 treadmill is for you. The latest addition to the line of True treadmills brings a whole new level of performance and reliability that will impress even the most experienced runners out there.
The True 950 treadmill boasts a 21" x 60" running surface that rolls over an exclusive lubricant Infused Orthopedic belt that reduces impact on joints, arches, and back so you can run longer without pain. The treadmill continues the tradition of being driven by a 4.0 HP DC continuous motor that drives the belt at speeds ranging from 0.5 to 12.0 MPH. The speed range can be personally adjusted based on your own capabilities for beginners to train at lower speeds while challenging yourself over time by increasing your speed as you get better and stronger. The True 950 treadmill is also built with a 15% incline feature so you can climb hills or tone your quads and calves. It also comes loaded with more than just the basics on the functionality of any treadmill. The 16" touchscreen display includes numerous workout programs and an entertainment option with favorites like TV, streaming video, and internet connectivity and provides a single port HDMI for screen mirroring.
The TRUE’s Soft System® is designed to be bio-mechanically correct and provide a stronger push off with every step. The front of the deck features neoprene shock absorbers which cushion footsteps and is flippable for longer lasting durability.
