TRUE Z5.4 Treadmill Named “Top Pick” by Runners World Magazine

For more than 25 years, TRUE Fitness has offered some of the most space efficient and safest treadmills on the market. Now, the company’s classic TRUE Z5.4 Treadmill – is earning rave reviews from Runners World Magazine.

In its review, staffers at Rodale/Runners World put nine new treadmill models to the test. After hundreds of miles of testing, testers rated the TRUE Z5.4 as the “plushest ride.” The review highlights the treadmill’s patented Soft System deck, a surface that is softer at the front to reduce impact and then firmer toward the back for a firm push-off. Testers also applauded the Z5.4’s 22 inch belt, versus the standard 20, and the Heart Rate Controlä System, which adjusts both grade and speed to help users maintain a target heart rate throughout their workout.

“It is an honor to be considered a top pick by Runners World,” says Frank Trulaske, president and CEO of TRUE Fitness. “Our goal has always been to offer customers innovative, quality equipment that allows them to meet their fitness goals. “Our low profile, low step-up Z Treadmills has a long history of success, and we’re pleased that testers at Runners World enjoyed their TRUE experience.”

The TRUE Z5.4 treadmill is designed to fit into its owners’ lifestyle without overtaking it. The machine offers a small footprint and an extremely quiet motor that won’t disturb family members. In addition to the Heart Rate Control System, 22 inch belt and Soft System deck, the TRUE treadmill features heavy-gauge, robotically welded steel throughout for superior stability, durability and performance.
