The TRUE Performance 300 is the middle treadmill in the popular series, offering the same commercial-grade construction and advanced cushioning system that the company is known for. It was recently upgraded to include new innovative features.
The Performance 300 has a bright 7" LCD console with Quick Speed Keys, USB port and wireless heart rate monitoring capability. It is made of robotically welded commercial grade steel.
Let's take a look at some of the important specs...
The TRUE Performance 300 is one of their most popular treadmills, and has received numerous awards over the years. Previously called the PS300 prior to recent upgrades, it joins the entry level 100 and the top of the line 800 models.
All of the TRUE treadmills are commercial-grade, built from the highest quality components and designed with all types of users in mind, from the casual walker all the way up to the serious runner.
The high quality orthopedic belts have always been a hallmark of the company. The Performance 300 features the TRUE Soft System cushioning which absorbs a lot of the impact and gives you the ideal stride ergonomics.
The belt is also generously sized: 21" wide and 60 " long, which is plenty of room for even tall users to stretch out. (Note that the entry level M30 and M50 offer shorter and narrower running surfaces.)
You get speeds up to 12 mph, and incline up to 15%, so you can really change up your workouts and challenge yourself. You also get the company's exclusive HRC Cruise Control for keeping yourself in the ideal target throughout your workout.
The console is a little more advanced than the one found on the M series, with a nice array of workout programs and saved workout capability. You also get Quick Speed keys for easy changing while you run.
One of the newest additions to the Performance 300 and other models is the Wahoo Run Fit App which allows you to track your workouts and sync them to your favorite fitness apps. That way you can keep on top of your workouts to see how you are progressing over time.
Any downsides here? Not really. It is on the pricey side, at around $3,399 on sale. You can spend less and get a very good treadmill. Also, it would be nice to get a touch screen at this price, but it does come on the up-level Performance 800 model.
The 300 is a solid treadmill, and if you have the budget for it you'll be more than happy with your purchase.
You get a strong motor, great cushioning, heart rate monitoring, nice workouts, incline up to 15% and new tracking capability.

Still, the 300 is a winner. If you are considering it take a look at the 800 model as well with the touch screen, adjustable deck and quick incline.
