How long will the TRUE M30 last?

The True M30 is the basic offering from the True Motivational Series and is likely to withstand years of use from a heavy jogger or light runner weighing less than 300lbs. Although an ideal workout environment will always be a contributing factor to elongated life, this treadmill has been built with sturdy construction that can handle most levels of an athlete's needs without fail. True offers a lifetime warranty on the frame, 30 years on the motor, 5 years on parts, and 1 year on labor.

Brief Overview

The M30 is an entry-level machine and strives to cater more towards a lower price range user. While we don't think this treadmill really provides the best value for what you pay, it does have some strengths that make up for its shortcomings like reliability from the company itself.

Overall Quality

The TRUE M30 treadmill is a great bet for most fitness lovers looking for a base product. You will not get the same amount of programming as say, NordicTrack or Proform but you will receive an excellent product from a company that stands behind its products with the True name on board. True has been able to provide the M30 with an incredibly durable and high-quality build. The M30 frame is solid. While the motor is 3.0 HP, the M30 offers speeds up to 12 MPH and comes with a decent 15% incline. It also offers 2 water bottle holders, an accessory tray, and a tablet holder which is standard on most treadmills. In this price range, we find the M30 seems relatively bare compared to other models.

If you're looking for a treadmill and your only concerns are what it can do, then there are more options in this price range. While True's entry-level machine doesn't offer as many programs or convenient features compared to higher end models, it does come with some of the company name recognition that comes along with buying from a well-recognized brand like theirs. On the other hand, if you are looking for entertainment during your workouts and getting the best features for money spent then this treadmill is not for you.
