Features extreme users would appreciate...
A motor that ensures stress free routines
This 4 HP motor is one of the best in its category and delivers enough punch to energize an efficient drive system, ultimately ensuring a comfortable training schedule for the committed professional. It easily reaches top speeds of 12 mph, creating an absolutely noise free environment. You can place this machine confidently in your office space without annoying your boss or colleagues. Watch TV, listen great music without having your ears sawn off by your treadmill.
The walking area is ideal for serious runners
Whether you are an inexperienced beginner or an experienced veteran, a running surface of 22" x 60" is the ideal platform for achieving any extreme fitness goal. It's easy to run on, easier to maneuver inclines up to 15%, very stable and remains perfectly centered without wobbling at high speeds.
High quality adjustable impact cushioning protects all users
Power runners need extreme protection for vulnerable joints and tender muscles, and this is something that is assured with an orthopedic belt and cushioning that is adjustable. This represents a higher level of impact protection that can benefit even those who are undergoing physiotherapy. This is quality that is generally not available below $4,000.
Reversible deck adds value to treadmill
Reversibility of the deck is a useful option that affords protection against uneven wear and tear that otherwise requires expensive replacement of the deck.
Stronger warranty is backed up by good customer service
Frame and motor get lifetime while parts and labor are 10 years and 2 years respectively, which is excellent by any reckoning in the premium segment. Users placing a higher premium on personalized care and timely servicing can opt for this model without a moment's hesitation. In our recent customer service study, True zoomed to #1 leaving competitors gasping in its wake.
A great buy but for the price...
If your dad owns the bank this could be yours...
With most of our assessment parameters scoring good to excellent, this is a treadmill designed to take considerable punishment from serious runners and professional racers. The Amazon River separating the professional from fitness paradise is pricey. Very few people are able to bridge that river. The budget constrained individuals need not despair as there are wonderful options at lower price points, particularly $2,500, that hold equal promise.
The final word
If you happen to be a professional in search of a kindred spirit, a machine that could transport you to the higher realms of physical fitness with all the bells and whistles that come with high technology, see if you can muster up this amount; it will definitely be worth every dime invested.
If you want the best of the best, this is your option from True.
