The entry level model for True has proven to be a strong machine. Think of a BWM 3 Series. Not up to the standards of the PS line but it is nearly $1,000 less. Finally True has come back to the sub $2,000 price point with an entry level model. It has some of the refinements of their higher end models at a budget price. Although this has the True name, it still cuts many corners to get it to a relatively low price for True. My guess is that the NordicTrack and Proform units in this range or the Yowza units will make a much more compelling case than True at this price point. You are paying for the True name to some extent but if you want the best service in the business, True is the way to go!

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.
