TruPace Fitness was first started in Europe and has been selling fitness equipment for the last 15 years. They have proven to be extremely popular for their good value and feature-packed equipment. The US was bound to test out TruPace equipment for themselves. What is surprising is that this equipment is just as caught up on technology and price of current fitness equipment available in the US.
The TruPace M120 treadmill is foldable, so if you don’t have much space, it’s easy to store. The foot print required is 72″ by 36″.
The speed ranges from 0.6 to 10 mph. This range is good for most runners. Jogging is around 6 mph, so you won’t run for long at 10 mph if you can reach it.
The incline consists of 15 levels, which cater to anyone that does power walking or a “hill” workout to really work and tone those legs.
The deck is cushioned to minimize the aches and pains after a long run. Most people want to control the settings themselves with the manual program, but if you feel like a different challenge or have a particular fitness goal in mind, like weight loss, then the workout programs would be better for you. There are 14 workout programs which include the manual program.
There are 12 speed and incline programs which adjust the setting to a predetermined course. The last program is a body fat test. The programs can be easily chosen from the console in front of you. The speed and incline can be changed with the push of a button. The bright blue backlit LCD with dot matrix display will give you all the info you need to know, such as speed, distance, calories, and there is a heart rate monitor that tells you how fast your heart is beating.
There is also a universal audio system built in, and TruPace calls it the TruSound system. You can plug in a iPod or MP3 player into the dock and enjoy your favorite tunes. The music is heard from 2 speakers and helps keep you motivated and occupied as you workout.
The transport wheels on the M120 allow you to move it into any room or position it easily. If you combine all this with the excellent warranty, then you can see why the TruPace M120 treadmill is an extremely affordable machine.
