Clear/Stop key
Each exercise program starts from the left part of the screen and terminates when it reaches the right part of the screen.
A flashing dot will indicate your progression in the program.
As the speed and elevation increase, the corresponding profile will move towards the top of the viewing screen. At the top
of the screen, a scrolling message center displays all your exercise parameters from the start of the program.
The two informational windows will display SPEED, DISTANCE, CALORIES, ELAPSED TIME, PACE and ELEVATION.
SPEED indicates the treadmill belt speed in miles per hour or kilometers per hour, ranging from 0.5 to 10 mph or 0.8 to
16.0 km/h for the T240 – T240P – T240C and from 0.5 to 11 mph or 0.8 to 17.6 km/h for the T280P – T280C .
CALORIES will indicate total of your caloric expenditure from the start of the exercise.
DISTANCE displays the total distance in miles or kilometers from the start of the exercise, ranging from 0.00 to
99.00 miles or 0.00 to 99.00 km.
ELAPSED TIME indicates the amount of time accumulated from the start of any program. The time will range from
0 to a maximum of 99 minutes.
PACE indicates how long it will take to complete one mile or one kilometer at that current speed. Pace per mile or
kilometer is shown in minutes and seconds.
ELEVATION will display the slope of the running belt in terms of percentage. As an example, one percent (1%) slope is
equal to one foot (or one meter) climbed for each 100 feet (or 100 meters) covered.
NOTE – The parameter like calories displays an evaluation of the real values of your exercise parameters. The evaluations
are based on formal information, tests and are supported by specialists and physicians.
Keys
During an exercise, you can change the value shown on each informational window by pressing the adjacent round select
key once. If you wish to have the information displayed in a scanning mode, simply hold down the round select key for three
seconds and release it. You can also activate any window to scan by repeating the above sequence. To remove the scan, just
press the round select key once again.
The INCREASE and DECREASE Speed keys allow you to modify the speed of the running belt during an exercise. These
keys also allow you to select the programs and parameters prior to each exercise. During any exercise program, you can
modify the speed of the belt by pressing or holding either the INCREASE or DECREASE Speed key. If you continuously
hold down a Speed key, the speed display will change by a tenth of a mile (or kilometer) per hour (0.1 mph or 0.1 km/h).
Release the Speed key when you have selected your desired exercise speed.
Notice that the treadmill belt will slowly change to your desired speed. The desired SPEED L.E.D. will be
displayed flashing on the display window on the left, while the actual belt speed slowly ramps up to your
target speed. Once the speed has been attained the SPEED L.E.D. will stop flashing.
The CLEAR/STOP key allows you to cancel a program selection for any reason. Press this key once to clear data not yet
entered.
NOTE – Use the CLEAR/STOP key to stop the running belt should you encounter difficulty or need to stop quickly during an
exercise.
NUMERIC KEYPAD: Use Numeric keys to enter exercise time, belt speed, weight, distance and target heart rate (T280P –
T280C only).
NOTE – These keys also become Quick Speed keys during a program because they can be used to enter directly the speed
whole numbers you want to reach without having to use the SPEED INCREASE or DECREASE keys. You just need to select the
speed with the numeric keypad keys and press the ENTER key at the top on the right hand side of your computer display
monitor. However, if you want to go to 6.5 mph, you need to push 6 and press the ENTER key, you will see your entries on
the central information window. Then, with the INCREASE Speed key, go from 6 mph to 6.5 mph.
ENTER KEY: Press this key to accept entries of workout setup values.
NOTE – To enter data, you could use either the JustGoTM/ENTER key or the green “ENTER” key at the top on the right
hand side of your computer display monitor.
COOL DOWN: Press this key to begin an automatically customized workout cool-down (T280P – T280C only).
PAUSE: Press this key to stop the belt and hold the current workout (T280P – T280C only).

Scanning Feature
During an exercise you will be able to view nine scanning exercise parameters on the central informational window along
with the exercise program. The parameters that will be displayed are :
• DISTANCE is shown in miles or kilometers for the entire exercise.
•
•
•
•
CALORIES indicates the caloric expenditure based on your actual exercise.
PACE is shown in minutes and seconds.
ELEVATION is shown in % of elevation.
HEART RATE displays your actual heart rate if the optional chest strap is used. The display is shown in beats per
minute.
• TREM (time remaning) indicates the amount of time left once a program has started.
or DIST. REM (distance remaining) if you chose distance in your settings
or CAL. REM (calories remaining) if you chose calories in your settings.
• CAL./HOUR (calories per hour) indicates the hourly caloric expenditure based on your actual exercise.
• SPEED displays the actual speed in miles per hour or kilometers per hour.
All these parameters scroll on the central informational window.
1.2
Pausing During an Exercise
You can pause any exercise by pressing the PAUSE key. When this key is pressed during an exercise, the motor will stop and
the running belt will slow down to 0 mph (0 km/h) within a few seconds. The stop is gradual, allowing the user to come
safely to a complete stop. The elevation will remain at the level just prior to the pause.
To pause an exercise:
1. Press the PAUSE key whenever you feel the need to stop the exercise or if you need to momentarily pause the exercise.
A message will appear on the screen indicating the amount of time remaining in the pause. The pause countdown
will only start once the running belt has come to a complete stop.
2. If you wish to continue the exercise, simply press the JustGoTM/ENTER key to start the running belt.
3. If you wish to cancel the exercise during the pause, simply press the CLEAR/STOP key. The exercise will be terminated and
a summary of your exercise parameters plus the option to save the exercise will be displayed. If your pause is over the
duration of the pause time, the exercise will terminate automatically.
1.3
Saving an Exercise (custom programs)
Once any program is finished or is prematurely terminated, the user has the option to save 15 elevations and speed levels
and recall it at a later date. This feature is very useful when a particular exercise is interesting and motivational. With
the T240 – T240P – T240C – T280P – T280C, you have the ability to create or modify an existing program and save it with
the ability to recall it including the heart rate control program. The T240 – T240P – T240C – T280P – T280C has the unique
feature of saving a heart rate control program and being able to recall this exercise and do it without the chest strap.
Saving an exercise program allows the computer to store 15 speed and elevation changes made during your exercise. The
speed and elevation levels saved are the ones before it moves to the next segment. With the T240 – T240P – T240C –
T280P – T280C, you have the ability to create or modify an existing program (personalize) and save it with the ability to
recall it.
When any program is finished or is prematurely terminated, the exercise parameters will first appear and then a menu will
be displayed in which you have the option to save the exercise. The option will be displayed as “TO SAVE THIS EXERCISE
PRESS ENTER IF NOT PRESS STOP”.
If you wish to save the exercise at the end of the program: (The T240 has two custom program slots and T240P – T240C –
T280P – T280C has four.)
1. Press the JustGoTM/ENTER key while your parameters are scrolling.
2. The T240 – T240P – T240C – T280P – T280C will indicate to you under which CUSTOM number it has been saved.
NOTE – If the memory is full press the INCREASE or DECREASE keys to select the CUSTOM program you would like to
overwrite. Press the JustGoTM /ENTER key to accept.
If you do not wish to save the exercise, press the CLEAR/STOP key to return to the welcome screen.

1.4 Viewing Exercise Parameters
At the end of each exercise program, the computer will display four exercise parameters. These parameters will be TOTAL
DISTANCE, CALORIES BURNED, TOTAL EXERCISE TIME, and AVERAGE SPEED.
• TOTAL DISTANCE displays the distance travelled for the entire exercise.
• CALORIES BURNED displays the approximate caloric expenditure for the entire exercise.
• TOTAL EXERCISE TIME displays the length of the exercise in minutes and seconds.
• AVERAGE SPEED displays the average speed value for the entire exercise.
The total exercise parameters on the T240 – T240P – T240C – T280P – T280C will loop for 2 minutes, showing your exercise
parameters until you press CLEAR/STOP to exit back to the welcome screen. If you do not wish to view the exercise

2.14 Heart Rate Recovery
Your T240 – T240P – T240C – T280P – T280C is pre programmed with a unique and useful program that is used to help determine
your fitness level. After a program (workout) it can be used to count the time between the actual and your predetermined
resting heart rate.
In order to use this program you will need to turn ON Heart Rate Recovery in the settings menu. By default, this option is
turned off. You would need to enter in you resting heart rate.
Fit Levels
Although it is difficult to assess each individual based on a generic chart, it is agreed that a quicker time from an exercise
level heart rate to a resting (predetermined) heart rate is beneficial to cardio fitness. The best way to use this program is to
use it today.
Using Recovery
It will only work while using the optional chest strap. After your exercise is complete, stay on the machine with your chest
strap facing the console. Try not to move. It is best to keep your arms to your side as to not interfere with the signal. Stay
in this position until the computer has finished reading the heart rate signal. Depending on your fitness level this could be
a few minutes or longer.
NOTE – Using Heart Rate Recovery with Cool/Down. Note that the Heart Rate Recovery will start counting only after the
Cool/Down has ended. If you are using Warm/Up and Cool/Down your Heart Rate Recovery will only start at the end. In order
to benefit from Heart Rate Recovery we recommend to deactivate the Cool/Down option.

Heart Rate Access Feature
A program is a pre-set hill pattern. You will get the same profile (hills and valleys) every time you select the same specific
exercise program. By increasing the levels you can change the predetermined hill profiles. The programs allow you to
monitor your progress and they add fun and interest to your exercise.
Each segment time is equal to the selected exercise time divided by 15 segments. Therefore, a 45 minute exercise results in
a 3 minute segment time.
W A R N I N G
BEFORE SELECTING ANY EXERCISE PROGRAM, FIRST STRADDLE YOUR FEET
ON THE FOOT RESTS. NEVER START ANY EXERCISE PROGRAM
WITH ONE OR BOTH FEET ON THE RUNNING BELT.
Program Levels
The Cardiovascular, Interval, Random, Hill Climb and Speed Run programs have 5 individual exercise levels. LEVEL 1 is the
easiest and LEVEL 5 is the most difficult. This feature allows you to alter the intensity of your workout.
JustGoTM Program
The JustGoTM program allows you to start a manual exercise with the push of one key. Since the JustGoTM program is the
initial program, it will always be displayed first for easy selection. You have total control of the speed and elevation of the
belt at all times during this program. Use the JustGoTM program if you like to walk or run at fairly constant speeds with little
or no changes during the exercise.
During the exercise, the speed and elevation that you select will remain for the entire exercise until the next change you
make. Your progression in the exercise is shown by one flashing dot.
To start exercising in the JustGoTM program:
1. Press the JustGoTM/ENTER key when the JustGoTM program is displayed on the screen. The running belt will slowly start
at 0.5 mph or 0.8 km/h and at 0% elevation with the exercise duration automatically set to the maximum.
The JustGoTM program does not allow the user to predetermine the exercise duration or enter a weight amount.
Therefore, the caloric expenditure and calories per hour values will be based on a user of 150 pounds or 68 kilograms.
The calorie values should therefore be used only as references when in the JustGoTM program.
2. Change the speed and elevation at all times by pressing the respective Speed and Elevation INCREASE and DECREASE keys.
3. You can pause, resume, end the program and save the program at anytime. It is not necessary to exercise the full
duration to save the program.
16
Manual Program
The Manual program allows you to create your own exercise as you progress in the program. The speed and elevation
are completely controlled by the user at all times. At a glance, the JustGoTM and Manual programs seem very similar due to
the fact that the user controls both the speed and elevation at all times. The difference is that in the Manual program, you
can select your exercise duration and weight for a more accurate display of the calories.
During the exercise, the speed and elevation that you select will remain for the entire exercise until the next change you
make. Your progression in the exercise is shown by one flashing dot.
To select the Manual program:
Press the MANUAL key (T280P – T280C only) or the INCREASE or DECREASE key until you reach the Manual program.
Press the JustGoTM/ENTER key to accept and follow the instructions shown in the central information window.
Cardiovascular Program
The Cardiovascular program has been designed to allow you to train at moderate intensity levels with short duration,
high intensity periods followed by a quick recovery period. The Cardiovascular program has predetermined speed and
elevation profiles according to the selected exercise levels. You can change the speed and elevation during the exercise if
you find it too easy or hard.
The speed profile has a set of high intensity segments to greater work your heart muscles. Changing the speed manually will
cause only that segment to change. Changing the elevation manually will cause the entire profile to change.
The following table shows the different speeds and elevations for each level.

Cardiovascular program. Press the JustGoTM/ENTER key to accept and follow the instructions shown in the central
information window.
Interval Program (T240P – T240C – T280P – T280C)
The Interval Training program allows you to exercise with constant high intensity workouts and rest periodically at set
recovery periods. The Interval Training program has predetermined speed and elevation profiles according to the selected
exercise levels. You can change the speed and elevation during the exercise if you find it too easy or hard.
If you are at a rest (low intensity) segment, then changing the speed manually will cause all the other segments to change.
If your are at a peak (high intensity) segment, then changing the speed manually will cause all the peak segments to
change. Changing the elevation manually will cause the entire elevation profile to change.

feature allows an almost infinite amount of exercise programs to be displayed at the touch of a key. Each new Random
program will have a programmed speed and elevation profile, resulting in automatic speed and elevation changes. If
you wish, you can change the speed or elevation at anytime during the exercise. The computer can display over 4 billion
random programs.

Heart Rate Control Program (HRC) and Weight Loss Program
(Requires wireless chest strap)
The Heart Rate Control and Weight Loss Program allows you to exercise at a predetermined heart rate level. By selecting the
desired heart rate level (Weight Loss in Weight Loss program), the running belt and elevation will automatically adjust to
decrease or increase the exercise intensity.
By selecting your age, plus the intensity level that you want to work your heart at (Only HRC), a target heart rate level is
calculated by the computer.
NOTE – This program can only be used with the optional heart rate chest strap available from your Authorized Bodyguard®
Dealer. Use of the heart rate chest strap will allow the treadmill belt to change speed along with a change in elevation. To
achieve optimal results, it is recommended to place the chest strap directly over the skin. The strap should be very snug since
any significant amount of shock or impact due to fast running may temporarily produce wrong heart rate signals. You should
not be more than arm’s length from the front handle bar to achieve the best signal. If at anytime the heart rate receiver does
not detect a signal from the chest strap for more than a few seconds, the following message will appear ‘‘UNSTABLE HR
SIGNAL PLEASE CHECK CHEST STRAP’’.
WARNING – Before attempting to use any of this equipment, you should read the instruction manual carefully. Use of
this equipment by people with heart or other medical problems may result in serious injury. You should consult with a
physician prior to using this equipment. It is recommended to periodically consult your physician as you continue to use this
equipment. Immediately cease exercise if you feel dizzy, faint or short of breath. Use of this equipment in a manner other
than as prescribed by these instructions herewith may result in serious injury.
To select the Heart Rate Control program or Weight Loss program:

or DECREASE keys to select your age. The age will vary from 10 to 100 years. Press the JustGoTM/ENTER key to accept.
5. Select an exercise intensity based on your preferred level of exercise. The 60% level is a good guide for those interested
in training in the fat loss range. The 70% level is suitable for those interested in training in the cardiovascular range. The
18
80% level requires the most effort and is suitable for persons with a higher level of fitness. Press the JustGoTM/ENTER key
to accept the intensity (60% is a default in Weight Loss Program).
6. You can modify the heart rate level suggested by the computer or press the JustGoTM/ENTER key to accept it and start
the exercise.
7. To start the exercise, press the JustGoTM/ENTER key.
During the Heart Rate Control or Weight Loss program, you can change the speed or elevation by pressing the Speed or
Elevation INCREASE or DECREASE keys. Keep in mind that the computer will then gradually readjust the speed and/or
elevation to compensate for the change in speed or elevation you made by gradually bringing your ACTUAL heart rate near
the TARGET heart rate level.
WARNING – If you feel that the running belt is moving too fast for your fitness level and you cannot keep up, press the
CLEAR/STOP key and terminate the exercise program. You can try the program again, but at a lower INTENSITY level
(60%). If this is still too fast for you, do not use the Heart Rate Control program until your fitness level allows you to
safely exercise at your TARGET heart rate level.
During the exercise, the main computer screen will show a speed or elevation profile like the other programs, but will display
your ACTUAL heart rate and your TARGET heart rate on the message center. Once the exercise has started, your ACTUAL
heart rate should be lower than the TARGET heart rate. The computer then will gradually regulate the speed and elevation
simultaneously to increase your exercise intensity level, resulting in a higher ACTUAL heart rate.
Your heart rate will be displayed on the message center as ACTUAL heart rate and TARGET heart rate (T). For example:
HRATE 110/115T.
NOTE – You can change your target heart rate while in the program by pressing the JustGoTM/ENTER key and modify it by
using the Speed DECREASE or INCREASE keys and by pressing the JustGoTM/ENTER key to accept it.
Walk Program
The Walk program allows you to create your own exercise as you progress in the program. The speed and elevation are
completely controlled by the user at all times. At a glance, Manual and Walk programs seem very similar due to the fact that
the user controls both the speed and elevation at all times. The difference is that in the Walk program, you can’t go over
4.0 MPH (6.4 KM/H) and 6% of elevation.

Rate Receiver
Receiver
The Bodyguard® Heart Rate receiver inside each T240 – T240P – T240C – T280P – T280C treadmill is specifically designed to
work in conjunction with the optional Heart Rate chest strap. The Heart Rate chest strap allows the computer to monitor your
heart rate, or pulses per minute. This value is shown on the computer screen and should only be used as a guide in helping you
achieve your personal fitness goals.
If no Heart Rate chest strap is used, no heart rate value (0) will be displayed on the computer screen. Before using any Heart Rate
chest strap on any exercise equipment, it is important to consult with a physician prior to commencing any exercise program.
WARNING – Before attempting to use any of this equipment, you should read the instruction manual carefully. Use of this
equipment by people with heart or other medical problems may result in serious injury. You should consult with a physician prior
to using this equipment. It is recommended to periodically consult your physician as you continue to use this equipment.
Immediately cease exercise if you feel dizzy, faint or short of breath. Use of this equipment in a manner other than as prescribed
by these instructions herewith may result in serious injury.
As a guide to effective exercising, to determine your recommended heart rate training zone, find your age on the heart rate
chart (refer to page 5) and read the heart rate target zone based on various intensity levels. These levels include fat burning zone,
cardiovascular zone and aerobic zone.
Tip – Sometimes you will need to moisten the back of the heart rate chest strap to obtain a signal. Use a few drops of water to
moisten the chest strap, then place directly over the skin. The chest strap does not work properly when placed over clothing.

3. Press the CLEAR/STOP key to terminate the test.
Belt Alignment
Should you need to adjust the tracking of the running
belt, you must make all adjustments during the BELT
ALIGNMENT procedure. To determine if the belt is not
aligned along the center of the deck, measure the
visible deck surface on both left and right sides of the
belt. If these values are nearly equal, do not adjust the
belt. If one side of the belt is closer to the foot rests
than the other side, then you will need to adjust the
belt to track to the opposite side.
NOTE – Your treadmill will need belt alignment
especially during the first 24 hours of use because the
belt stretches itself during that time. After the first 24
hours, no more adjustment should be needed.
A
B
C
D
To verify the belt alignment, check visual gap (A) between
belt ends and foot rests (B). Belt alignment bolts (D) are
visible through hole in rear roller caps (C).
To adjust running belt alignment.
1. In the Diagnostics menu, select the “BELT ALIGNMENT” and accept it by pressing the JustGoTM/ENTER key.
2. Press the JustGoTM/ENTER key to proceed.
3. You will need the 5/32” hex key to turn the bolts located inside the rear roller end caps.
WARNING – Do not stand on the belt during this procedure. Keep loose clothing and long hair away from the belt and
rollers when performing belt alignment.
4. Allow the belt to reach 2.0 mph or 3.2 km/h (speed will be displayed on the computer screen). Looking from the rear
of the treadmill, notice the gap between left and right sides of the belt and the foot rests.
If the running belt is tracking to the left of the deck surface:
• turn the left bolt in a clockwise direction to allow the belt to track to the right and ultimately in the center, or;
• turn the right bolt in a counter-clockwise direction to allow the belt to track to the right and ultimately in
the center.
25

•
turn the left bolt in a counter-clockwise direction to allow the belt to track to the left and ultimately in the center, or;
•
turn the right bolt in a clockwise direction to allow the belt to track to the left and ultimately in the center.
NOTE – During any belt alignment procedure, do not turn each bolt by more than 1 to 1-1/2 revolutions. Exceeding this may
cause a high amount of tension on the running belt and result in premature wear of the belt and rollers. It is best to adjust only
one alignment bolt, since this will prevent the belt from excessive stretching resulting from adjustment of both alignment bolts.
5. To verify that the belt is properly aligned, slowly increase the speed to a maximum of 6.0 mph or 9.6 km/h, and let
the belt turn for at least one minute. Carefully observe that the belt does not track to the left or right side. If the belt
continues to track to one side, or you hear a rubbing noise, immediately press the CLEAR/STOP key to stop the belt. You
will need to verify the alignment again.
6. Press the CLEAR/STOP key to terminate the test.

General Care
Your T240 – T240P – T240C – T280P – T280C have been designed and built to give you trouble free use. For maximum safety
however, you should periodically check your unit for signs of wear.
Here’s a quick check list followed by reference Table 3 :
• After each workout, you should wipe down your T240 – T240P – T240C – T280P – T280C using a mild, non-abrasive liquid
cleanser applied on a soft cotton cloth. Do not spray cleansers directly on the unit or use an excessively damp cloth. Do
not clean the unit with the power ON, be sure that it is OFF.
• Be sure that the treadmill is on a level surface and that it is not rocking. Excessive rocking may cause the running belt to
track to one side of the deck resulting in accelerated wear of the running belt.
• Keep liquids including excessive sweat away from the computer console.
• The running belt and deck surface should be kept clean. Dirt and other debris can cause slipping when exercising.
• Check that each handle bar is secure on the frame.
• Do not put any lubricating product other than the Bodyguard® lubricant.
• Place a carpet or rubber mat under the treadmill to avoid any build up of debris from your exercise shoes. Under
extreme conditions, some debris may collect on the floor just behind the rear roller. It is also recommended to periodically
remove any dust that may have accumulated under the treadmill. Excessive amounts of dust may enter into the motor
assembly and cause the motor to overheat.
• It is very important to periodically remove any dust that may have accumulated under the motor cover. Use compressed
air to blow out the accumulated dust in the motor and board area.
WARNING – To prevent electrical shock or risk of fire, always turn the power OFF and disconnect the power cord whenever
you are inspecting and repairing your T240 – T240P – T240C – T280P – T280C.
Belt and Running Deck
Running Belt
The running belt supplied with each treadmill is of the highest quality, offering superior traction and low noise under
extreme conditions. It is therefore important to maintain each running belt periodically by observing that no cuts have
appeared over time, and that the running belt has not shifted to one side of the deck surface. If the running belt constantly
tracks (or moves) to one side of the deck, you must adjust the alignment bolts placed at the rear of the running belt.
See Belt Alignment for complete procedure.
28
Deck Surface
The running deck needs to remain free of any loose items that may become trapped between the running belt and the
rollers. Avoid dropping liquids on the deck as this may cause gum up problem on the belt.
Under extreme conditions resulting in heavy wear and tear on the deck surface, it may be necessary to remove the deck and
turn it over, or turn it back-to-front to expose a fresh surface. The deck is especially designed to offer four reversible sides
for a longer life use of the deck.
Please contact your Bodyguard® Dealer for servicing the deck.
Make certain to have the power off before doing any
maintenance.

Lubricant Application
1. Clean the deck surface and the inside part of the belt with a dry piece of
fabric. Clean the belt first by using a long piece of fabric across the belt
and start the belt so it makes two complete turns. Then, release the
tension on the rear roller to be able to clean the deck surface of any
debris or remaining wax.
2. Open the lubricant supplied by your dealer. Place the lubricant tube in
the middle of the belt at about 15 inches from the hood cover. Step on
the treadmill and step down with your feet where the lubricant tube is
located under the belt to make sure that most of the lubricant is now
spread evenly on the deck surface. DO NOT START THE TREADMILL YET.
BEST ZONE
3. Remove the LUBE TUBE from under the belt and put the tension back
again on the rear roller. Stand where you applied the lubricant and
press JUSTGO to start the belt turning at 0.5 MPH (or 0.8 KMH). Let the
belt bring you a the back of the treadmill and come back where you
were standing. Do this twice so the lubricant will be present on the
total surface of the deck. Start the treadmill and make sure the belt
alignment is correct. Refer to the owner’s manual if any problem occurs.
