One of our 10 Best Treadmills for 2017! True does the best job with orthopedic belts and the Performance 300 is no exception to this rule. If you are looking for an affordable True that has a 60? belt, this is your best option. The orthopedic belt is well worth the extra cost and with True's patented deck system, it alleviates the concerns we normally have with ortho belts. You do get the shortcomings of the extra weight on some drive system parts but True minimizes these effects to a great extent with great design. With other companies getting better and better, True still stands as the brand to beat in what we consider the high end home treadmill market. The quality of the parts is excellent and the factory is typically easy to deal with.

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.
