When lives depend on your aerobic capacity you need to train in full gear, at speed, with no distractions. The TRUEFORM.RUNNER is over-engineered and built like a tank to take anything you can throw at it.



From US Army Medical Corps to SpaceForce, the USA-built TRUEFORM.RUNNER provides a universal platform for explosive acceleration, controlled deceleration, and building aerobic capacity. Because the curve forces the user to adopt a more natural gait Agencies are able to reduce attrition from boot camp to veteran reservist training.


training is designed to build acceleration and the ability to stop and immediately focus. For the last 5 years, TRUEFORM. adviser Coach Dan Palacios has been the primary strength and conditioning consultant for the Broward College Institute of Public Safety's Police Academy and other law enforcement agencies. You will find TrueForms being used by agencies from Police Academies to the Secret Service.


Training is not just about speed or acceleration, it's about focus, balance, and stamina. According to the National Institutes of Health, 45% of on-duty firefighter deaths result from cardiac events. The TRUEFORM.RUNNER is built like a tank and its stable surface enables fire officers to train in full gear with packs, bottles, and smart mannequins. Training on a TRUEFORM reduces the variables, enabling officers to recognize and train to absorb and balance their gear before they tackle inconsistent surfaces, thereby reducing the risk of injury, attrition, and death.
