One of our 10 Best Treadmills for 2017! If you are having to stretch to buy a True, the Performance 100 is the first model I would buy personally. Think BWM 5 Series. Refinement, but it takes a decent size wallet to get this one. The Performance 100 won't leave you wanting more. The first model True treadmill without compromise. It lacks some of the high end features of the high end models but it is one that you can pound on and you don't have to worry about it. True also ranks #1 in the three annual service surveys that we have conducted. When I think of running machines, my mind goes first to True and then to other companies like Precor, Landice, and Lifefitness commercial treads.

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.
