Built from the ground up

After the launch of the Alpine Runner, it swiftly gained popularity among gym-goers and facility owners worldwide. Our goal was to design a treadmill that could serve as both a treadmill and a 30% incline trainer rather than merely an incline trainer that could double as a treadmill. This product is top-of-the-line in every aspect, which is why it's considered a member of the esteemed TRUE family.

Climb Higher

The ultimate incline training machine. With an incline range of -3% to 30%, this range intensifies workouts like never before. The Alpine Runner features a patented incline system engineered to minimize the load on the incline motor and reduce wear and tear.

Next Level Features

We recognize the importance of performance training equipment, but it is just as crucial for the equipment to have longevity. That's why we've incorporated premium key features into this product.

  • Alumnium straddle covers for a durable and premium quality
  • Patented incline system reducing motor wear and tear over time
  • TRUE's signature Soft System deck cushioning relieves impact on joints
  • Vertical upper handgrips provide support at the highest incline
  • Dual brake for reliable workout performance
Features of the Alpine Runner, such as the custom programs of the Monument Workouts, keep your users engaged with their workouts and happy with their membership.


With HIIT products becoming more prevalent, we wanted to make a product that fits into that same category. The Alpine Runner was the perfect fit as it could be used as a typical treadmill or a HIIT workout with its high incline.

Jared Kueker Vice President of Product Development TRUE Fitness


The Alpine Runner provides the familiarity of a standard treadmill, but unique features that encourage users to look beyond the standard workout. An independent, 3rd party lab conducted a study which demonstrated that the Alpine Runner is a far more effective weight loss tool than other treadmills.

More Effective at Burning Fat

An independent, 3rd party lab study demonstrated a significant reduction in the user’s body composition, most notably in their waist and arm size, after consistently incorporating the Alpine Runner in their workouts.

Greater Caloric Output

With 30% incline and 3% decline, the TRUE Alpine Runner provides a more challenging workout. This independent, 3rd party study showed users of the TRUE Alpine Runner consistently self-selected higher speeds and incline levels, which burns more calories.

Improves Metabolic Efficiency

The study demonstrates that Alpine Runner users significantly improved fat utilization at rest, signifying an improvement in metabolic efficiency. Metabolic efficiency is how well the body utilizes fat as an energy source and is a key component to weight loss.
