The Trueform is NOT your average treadmill. For one it lacks a motor. Other than the one the runner has built in that is. The uniquely curved deck and smooth resistance require you to run properly and generate elastic force to move the belt. Motorized treadmills are only about keeping up with the belt, crappy form or not! The Trueform will go as fast as you want it to. But let me tell you, it ain’t easy! We look forward to using the Trueform for winter run form improvement. Come in and give it a try! Check out their website which has many interesting videos on run technique/form.
