You can’t get a great body by training comfortably which is why this machine acts as a personal trainer, pushing your cardio fitness to a higher level.

Treadmill reviews by customers are excited by their True ES7.0 and find it to be one of the quietest machines they have ever used. From the large walking area and comfortable cushioning, to the powerful motor and reliable performance, they have no complaints about their purchase.
The three-way race for best performance in a residential high-end treadmill (over $5000) includes models from True, Star Trac, and LifeFitness. While all are recommended, we would rate the True machine slightly higher for better value over both a LifeFitness Club Series treadmill, and a Star Trac model (unless you are seriously considering paying $7.000 for a home machine).
At $5,399, the True ES7.0 is solid machine for achieving great cardio and calorie burning workouts, as well as training for longer races such as 10K and hill climbs.
If your budget allows for it, and you are interested in even more programs and a decline ramp feature, check out the ES9.0 for a few hundred dollars more. The True ES7.0 treadmill rates a Best Buy.
UPDATE: New Year's Treadmill Sales are on!
