True 540 P Treadmill Review

True 540 P Treadmill

True 540 P Treadmill

The True 540 P treadmill comes with a wider running surface to give you more room to move and be comfortable during your workout.

And, like other True treadmills, it features the best belt and deck combination in the market to give you the smoothest and most silent treadmill experience.

Is This Your Best Buy Treadmill?

If you want to buy treadmills with lots of space to run on, then this is one of your better choices. The True 540 P, as well as others in the 540 series, has some of biggest running surface in the True lineup. However, with a price tag above $3,500, I don’t think most people can afford this. So if this machine is beyond your budget, I suggest you look for comparable treadmills using our best buy treadmills page.

What You’ll Get

This model boasts a 3.0HP continuous duty motor that serves up speeds of up to 10mph and inclines that reaches 15%. So it doesn’t matter whether you’re a beginner or advance runner, this machine can provide you the intensity you need.

The 22” x 54” running space is wider than units from the 500 series. It gives you even more room to move and be comfortable during your workout. Plus, with its magnificent belt and deck combination, this unit could very well provide you the best treadmill experience you’ll ever have.

This machine also features 4 pre-programmed workouts (Weight Loss, Speed Interval, C/V Workout, Hill Interval) with 9 intensity levels each and 3 customizable programs to give you more variety and flexibility in your exercises.

A new facet that can be found in the 540 series is the S.O.F.T. select feature. With it, you can customize the softness of your treadmill to fit you more through 12 manually adjustable settings.

And finally, this machine comes with excellent warranty. Its drive motor and all of its parts are covered for 10 years… making this one of the best warranties in its price range. Other warranties include a lifetime for frames and 1 year for labor.


As expected, the biggest weakness of this machine is that it is overpriced. It provides little value for the price it’s asking.


I don’t recommend the True 540 P treadmill. It provides below average value for its price. If you really want a decent True treadmill, stick with the True 500 HRC classic or better yet, visit our best buy treadmills page and check out other quality brands.
