True Fitness makes various models of treadmills for in-home use. When you purchase your treadmill, it comes already calibrated. However, if you move your treadmill to another room, or have service performed on it, you will need to recalibrate your machine. Calibration helps ensure that the speed and incline are accurate. You can calibrate your True Fitness treadmill in a few simple steps.
