The TRUE PS300 is the mid-range model of the series, a step up from the M30 and M50, offering the same great space-saving design, workout diversity and comfort features along with some additional features. At around $3000 it’s an expensive elliptical…but you do get what you pay for.

Here are the highlights of our TRUE PS300 review…

Total Body Workout

Unlike most elliptical trainer which usually only allow you to target lower body muscles alone or upper and lower together, TRUE ellipticals allow you to work out just your upper body. That is something very unique. The PS300, as well as the others, have side steps that serve two purposes. First, they make it easier to get onto the machine safely. Second, you can stand on them and just work out your upper body if you’re not in the mood to work out your legs…or if you just want to change it up to vary your workouts a bit. So you can work out your whole body at once, just your legs, or just your arms and upper body. It’s your choice.

Cardio 360

All of the TRUE ellipticals feature this patented virtual personal trainer. It puts you through a series of workouts targeting all of the different muscle groups to maximize your results and hit all of the spots you want to target.

Small Footprint

Since the TRUE PS300, and all of the models in the series, have a center drive, they have an extremely small footprint. This is opposed to the front and rear drive models that you see everywhere, which tend to be very long and not ideal for the home environment. At only 49″ long, the PS300 is 7″ longer than the M50 model but still way shorter than most ellipticals.

Heart Rate Cruise Control

Another patented feature, you can keep yourself in your ideal heart rate range the entire time with something called HRC Cruise Control. Just like in a car, once you hit that ideal number the machine automatically adjusts itself throughout your workout to keep you there the entire time. That’s a great way to get the most out of your workouts, as you’re not under working or overworking your body.

True M30 Panel

Additional Features

The PS300 features the same console as the M30 and the M50, an orange LED display with a reading rack/tablet holder. There are 12 different workouts to choose from to reach your speed, distance or hill conquering goals.

Upgrades to the other two models include an accessory tray, an additional two years on parts and electronics (7 as opposed to 5 on the others), extended handrails and moisture-proof grips, a lower step-up height for easier access and a higher max weight capacity (350 lbs.)

Anything we didn’t like?

After our TRUE PS300 review was completed, we compared it to the M30 and M50 to see if it was worth the additional price. It’s about $800 more than the base M30 model and $400 more than the M50. It does offer some additional features that you just read about above, but not really enough to justify the jump in price in our opinion. It does have a better warranty but these machines are built so well this shouldn’t really make a difference.

For heavier users it might be worth it, as it offers an additional 50 lb. max weight. But all in all we think most people will be perfectly served with one of the other models.

What’s the bottom line?

If you’re in the market for a high-end elliptical with a small footprint, you can’t go wrong with the TRUE PS300 trainer, or any other TRUE elliptical for that matter. These machines are built to last, with the highest grade materials, yet they have all of the comfort features to make your workouts as pleasurable and impact-free as possible.

Add to that the virtual personal trainer and heart rate functions and you have yourself the ideal cardio machine.
