"Best Buys"


true elliptical machineTrue M30 Elliptical Trainer

Price: $2,099

Bottom Line: Building upon their center drive elliptical technology, True Fitness offers the M30 elliptical trainer that features a new streamlined display, space efficient design, and 21" stride length. While this unit stands out as the most affordable True Fitness elliptical, it still comes in at over $2,000.

Thoughts: Center drive elliptical trainers from True Fitness have always carried a hefty price tag. With the introduction of units like this M30 model, the center drive technology from True is becoming available to more budget conscious home users. While the M30 is a stripped down version of the more expensive products, it still offers a decent amount of features and is robust in its design. We were a little disappointed with the cut down display system, as it is simple to use, but limited. The drive system is elaborate on this machine, and maintenance will be more costly; however, the stride felt good but we would like to have some at least a few inches of adjustment available to add that level of versatility we expect from True Fitness. Still, if you are looking for a center drive elliptical the True Fitness M30 is not a bad option; however, consider the fact that you are paying a lot more for the True name than you are for features, the M30 is pretty distilled.
