The True M50 is the upgrade model in their popular Motivational Series. It's likely to withstand years of heavy use from a jogger or runner weighing less than 300 pounds, as well as it offers sturdy construction that can handle most fitness needs without fail. This treadmill is offered with a lifetime warranty on the frame, 30 years on the motor, 5 years on parts, and 1 year on the labor so despite only weighing 220 lbs., True does believe this frame will stand the test of time.
The True M50 is an attempt to build on the M30 but the differences are not enough to warrant the extra cost of the M50. The addition of metal straddle covers instead of plastic and an orthopedic, lubricant infused belt are the only differences between the models and do not quite make up for the additional price requested for the M50.
The True M50 is a great bet for most fitness lovers looking for a base entry level product. You will not get the same amount of programming as other similarly priced competitors, but you do receive a decent machine with all of its durability and high-quality build backed up by the True name brand. Also, if you are looking to save space with a folding model look elsewhere. With speeds up 12 MPH and an incline of 15%, this 3 HP motorized model provides for a decent workout for a heavy jogger or light runner and simultaneously offers the standard two water bottle holders, accessory tray, and integrated tablet holder found on most treadmills. It is important to note the M50 treadmill offers a more basic version of what most people would expect in this price range.
