TrueForm Runner American Made Curved Treadmills

TrueForm Runner Non-Motorized Curved Treadmill 

 The TrueForm Runner by Samsara Fitness is a manually operated treadmill with a curved deck for enhanced performance during running, jogging, and walking. The TrueForm Runner is a non-motorized machine, meaning you have to supply the power that drives the belt, and there are no limitations for top speed. The TrueForm Runner moves as fast as the exerciser can physically go. Unlike standard electric treadmills, the TrueForm Runner self-powered treadmill features an innovative curved deck that is controlled 100% by the movements and force of the athlete using it. It requires that you maintain good posture, and use your core strength, hamstrings, and glutes to drive the belt backwards. It will help you train by rewarding technically-sound posture, body position, balance, and cadence. The TrueForm manual treadmill is engineered to help the user feel the perfect position and teach the skill of running. Receiving instant physical feedback in just a few strides, users will feel any form deficiencies and have the ability to intuitively learn efficient movement patterns. The TrueForm Runner curved treadmill will force the body into the right position during movement. You simply can't run on it unless you are running correctly. Vulcanized rubber slats provide a firm surface for stable contact and more efficient push-off and gait cycle for healthy, supported form during running. Set your own limits or push right past them. The TrueForm Runner can handle even the most advanced and intense cardiovascular training regimens, creating the nearest simulation of genuine road running.

How is the TrueForm Runner different from other curved treadmills? 

The TrueForm Runner has a very gentle curve of 2.5 inches from lowest part of curve to the highest point at the front and rear. Some other manufacturers have a curve of 6.5 to 8 inches, allowing the runner to move faster in an easier fashion since gravity is assisting with the movement downward once the foot plants. Under machine-assisted acceleration, the runner is thus falling forward trying to perpetually chase the belt, and running more "quad dominant" with less focus on the posterior. With the TrueForm Runner, you focus more on what's beneath your feet. With a lower curve, the TrueForm keeps you in better dynamic balance with less focus on trying to keep up with the belt. As you get accustomed to running with proper form, the feeling becomes easier and you can go longer distances. The TrueForm forces you to run a bit slower than you might on similar cardio trainers, so focus on the time on the machine, not the distance traveled. Running for time instead of distance is how the heartrate-based endurance community actually trains, and is the difference between exercising for long-term health versus short-term fitness. So, for more fat burning effects, it is recommended to run long and slow. At the same speeds as outdoor running, training on the TrueForm is actually more work, since it results in more muscular recruitment, more CO2 production, more lactate producing, and is more metabolically and aerobically taxing. At the same time, runners will feel less impact stress (g-force stress) than running on a motorized treadmill or outdoors. The runner is required to be in balance at all times, leading to constant core recruitment. Training on the TrueForm Runner results in less stress, more effort, moving better in balance, and moving under proper positioned load to support your own bodyweight. Run strong and stay injury-free!

    Ecstatic with this Purchase!

    Shipping was really fast first of all. Runner came in great condition and I would suggest having two people for install, although it was not difficult. It's the perfect addition to our garage gym and the whole family has been using it daily. My legs and knees feel so much better running on this versus the street which I am super happy about. It just feels like well built piece of machinery and it is made in the USA to boot!
