BEST FOR Com­pet­i­tive run­ners and hard­core track rac­ers. THE GOOD The True­form Run­ner looks much like the Wood­way Curve (p94), and is pow­ered the same way: you are the mo­tor that drives the belt by en­gag­ing your back­side mus­cles. It’s hand-built, with a very solid frame and re­al­is­tic run­ning sur­face that lasts far longer than a typ­i­cal tread­mill belt. Plus, with no mo­tor or elec­tri­cal com­po­nents, there are fewer parts to break down over the life of the ma­chine. We loved the fact that it comes avail­able in dif­fer­ent run sur­faces de­pend­ing on your needs. Our test model had a run­ning- track sur­face, which al­lowed testers to train in spikes for a mile race, but it’s also avail­able with a rub­berised belt or a turf sur­face (foot­ball and rugby play­ers can warm up in their studs). THE GRIPE Testers found the 43cm-wide run­ning sur­face too nar­row; they had to con­cen­trate to stay cen­tred on the belt. RUN­NING SUR­FACE 43cm x 163cm MAX­I­MUM SPEED N/ A MAX­I­MUM IN­CLINE None PRO­GRAMMES None MO­TOR None BUY bull­doggear. eu

The True­form’s curved sur­face re­quires good form – a slight lean and land­ing with your feet be­low you.
