The prompt, SELECT UNITS scrolls across the display and then, the current unit of measure appears. The message scrolls continually until you press a key. Any ▼ or ▲ key lets you alternate between the prompts. 4. Once your selection is displayed, three options exist. You can, a. press the SELECT to accept the unit of measure being displayed and continue with programming the treadmill. (Refer to Determining the Club Speed Limit.) The changes are saved in memory. The C932 will retain your selection even when it is turned OFF and unplugged. b. press the red Stop button, which keeps the “current unit of measure”, unchanged and advances to the next section. Note: The “current unit of measure” is not necessarily the one being displayed. It refers to the unit of measure that was in existence prior to entering the SELECT UNITS program. c. press RESET, which keeps the “current unit of measure”, unchanged, ends programming mode, and returns to the PRECOR banner. Important: If you change the Unit of Measure display, be sure to check the speed limit setting to verify that it is correct. Refer to Determining the Club Speed Limit below. page 22 C O M M E R C I A L P R O D U C T S D I V I S I O N DETERMINING THE CLUB SPEED LIMIT You can set a maximum speed for the treadmill. This limits how fast the running belt moves and, consequently, how many adjustments a user can make to the treadmill’s speed. The speed is displayed in miles per hour (mph) or kilometers per hour (kph) depending upon the units of measure (U.S. standard or Metric) that are selected. Once the prompt SET MAX SPEED scrolls across the display, use the ▼▲ keys to choose a speed between: 0.5 to 11.0 mph (1.0 to 18 kph). Press SELECT to continue programming the treadmill. Refer to step 4 above. Important: If you select a number that limits the miles per hour, your change will not affect the kilometers per hour (and vice versa). The treadmill does not convert the speed entered in miles per hour (U.S. standard) to kilometers per hour (Metric). It stores separate numbers for the different units of measure. SETTING A WORKOUT TIME LIMIT You can limit how long a user works out by setting a duration between 1 and 99 minutes. The treadmill also lets you choose NO LIMIT (found at the zero point between 99 and 1) which allows the user to select a course and work out indefinitely. Note: The QuickStart program is automatically limited to the Club limit. For example, if you set the workout time limit to 20 minutes, the treadmill allows users to specify a workout between 1 and 20 minutes. Users cannot specify a time longer than 20 minutes. Important: An exception to the rule is the Weight Loss course. It has a course duration of 28 minutes. Use the ▼▲ keys to select a workout time limit. Touch either ▼▲ key and the display changes in one minute increments. Press and hold the ▼ or ▲ key and the numbers advance or decrease faster. Take into account that the user may get an additional cool-down period appended to his or her workout (depending on course selection), so adjust the maximum time limit accordingly. Press SELECT to continue programming the treadmill. Refer to step 4 above. Note: If the workout time is set to NO LIMIT users can workout indefinitely and no cool-down is appended to the course. The exception is the Weight Loss course. SETTING A PAUSE TIME LIMIT Setting a pause time limit is useful because the treadmill returns to the PRECOR banner at a selected interval after the Stop key is pressed. After the reading the scrolling prompt and message, use the ts keys to set the pause time limit between 1 and 120 seconds (two minutes). Press SELECT to continue programming the treadmill. For other options, refer to step 4 on the previous page. page 23 C O M M E R C I A L P R O D U C T S D I V I S I O N SETTING A COOL DOWN TIME LIMIT You can set a limit to the duration of a user’s cool down time in one-minute increments. It is highly recommended, in most workout literature, that a user cool down for at least three minutes to allow their heart rate to return to a “normal,” non-exercising state. A cool down period also allows lactic acid, which may have built up in a person’s body during a workout, to dissipate somewhat during the cool down phase. After the scrolling prompt appears, use the ts keys to set a cool down time limit between 1 and 5 minutes. Press SELECT to accept the displayed value and return to the PRECOR banner. For other options, refer to step 4 on the previous page. VIEWING THE ODOMETER, HOURS OF USE, SOFTWARE VERSION, AND ERROR LOG Important: Review Programming Tips on the previous page before taking the following steps. To view the odometer, the number of hours that the running belt has been in use, the C932 software version number, or the error log, begin at the PRECOR banner and press the following key sequence: RESET, SPEED ▼, SELECT The numbers 6, 5 appear on the display as you press the associated key. The field name MILES or KILOMETERS scrolls across the display and indicates the unit of measure currently in use by the treadmill. The odometer value appears next. The odometer tracks the running belt movement. The numeric value that appears indicates the distance traveled in cumulative miles or kilometers. The message continues to scroll until you press a key. Refer to Programming Tips on page 21. Press the SELECT key and the word HOURS scrolls across the display. The number that follows indicates the hours of that the running belt has been in use. The C932 actually notes the passing of course minutes, but the numeric value that appears is truncated to the nearest full hour. Press SELECT again and the unit’s three digit software version number (upper display software version) scrolls past followed by the lower board’s software version number. The words “UPPER SW:” and “LOWER SW:” appear prior to the version being displayed. page 24 C O M M E R C I A L P R O D U C T S D I V I S I O N Press SELECT once again and the Error Log appears. The most recent error log appears first and scrolls across the display. If the words, NO ERRORS appear, no errors have been recorded. Up to ten error codes can be recorded and viewed in the following format. Most recent error 1: ER33 AT Error code The number of hours that the treadmill has been in use when the error occurred 12,345,678 MILES 1,714 HOURS Odometer reading at the time the error occurred Note: To clear (delete) the error log, press the QuickStart key for at least four seconds while the message HOLD QUICKSTART TO CLEAR ERROR LOG scrolls across the display. If the QuickStart key is released before the message finishes scrolling, then the display returns to the previous error code. If you continue to press the QuickStart key until the message finishes scrolling, then prompts appear on the display and let you know when the error messages have been deleted from memory. Important: You cannot retrieve the error log once you have deleted it. To return to the PRECOR banner, press RESET, SELECT, or the red Stop button. page 25 C O M M E R C I A L P R O D U C T S D I V I S I O N The C932 Display The C932 is designed so users can work out with minimal instruction or training. The directions on the console and the prompts on the display will guide a user through the entire workout session. Before the treadmill is used, however, we recommend that you, as club owner or manager, familiarize yourself with it so you can instruct your customers to use it safely and effectively. This section covers the following information: • an overview of the different features provided on the display console • an explanation about the Setup Mode and Display Prompts • instructions for using the heart rate options FEATURES ON THE DISPLAY CONSOLE As a user works out, the display consecutively scans through the highlighted features [PROFILE, TIME, DISTANCE, CALORIES, SPEED, INCLINE, HEART RATE (HR) and SmartRate®]. Indicator lights appear next to the feature being displayed. A user can change which features appear by pressing the SELECT key. Refer to Changing the Display Features Using the SELECT Key on page 34. Diagram 17 shows the display console label. Its display features and keys are explained on the following pages. Diagram 17 C932 display console C932 SmartRate® display Course profile and data entry fields Once you begin a course, the profile appears in this portion of the display and remains until the scanning process begins. Keypad keys The keys on the keypad let you: • control your workout session, • answer prompts prior to starting a course, • determine which display features appear, • prematurely end a course, and • adjust the incline and speed. Refer to Keys on the Keypad on page 32. page 26 Select key Customize the display by highlighting an LED indicator. Make your selections by pressing the SELECT key. A lit LED indicates which feature is being displayed. C O M M E R C I A L P R O D U C T S D I V I S I O N The SmartRate® and Heart Rate system is standard equipment. The heart rate receiver is factory-installed in the display console. To actively view the SmartRate® and heart rate displays, a user must wear a POLAR® chest strap, face the display console, enter his or her age (during the Setup prompts), and begin a course. The user’s heart rate is transmitted from the chest strap to the receiver inside the console and appears on the display. A blinking segment approximates the user’s heart rate and shows which zone the heart rate is in: weight loss or cardiovascular. Important: During a course, a user’s heart rate must be above 40 beats per minute before the segment begins to blink. Note that pressing QuickStart at the PRECOR banner causes the SmartRate® display feature to be inactive. SETUP MODE AND PROMPTS The PRECOR banner is the “starting point” when a user begins a workout. If the banner does not scroll across the display, press the RESET key. If the display appears blank, make sure that the treadmill is turned ON. Press the ON/OFF [I/O] switch located at the front, near the power receptacle, to ON. PRECOR banner: From the PRECOR banner, a user presses the SELECT key to access the Setup mode which lets a user determine the course, workout time, weight, and age parameters as described below. Note: Key presses to the INCLINE ▼▲ or SPEED ▼▲ keys are ignored when the banner is being displayed. Refer to page 30 for more information about the keypad. MANL: The course prompt, MANL, indicates that the C932 is ready to accept course entries. To help a user determine which course they want to use, the course names and profiles appear on the display console label. The ▼ and ▲ keys let a user scroll through the available courses. The display presents the abbreviated name of the course. To choose the selection being displayed and continue in Setup mode, press SELECT. (Refer to The Setup Mode and the QuickStart Feature on page 28.) Note: Depending on the course that is selected, a user may be prompted for other information. Refer to C932 Courses on page 40. XX MIN: Acceptable entries at the workout time prompt range between NOLIM (zero) and 99 minutes. Use the ▼ and ▲ keys to change the selection. If the club allows it and a user wants to work out indefinitely, they can choose NOLIM. A cool-down period will not be appended to the course. Note that the Weight Loss course has a preset time limit so a user will not be prompted for a workout time when they choose WTLS. A user cannot workout indefinitely in the Weight Loss course. To continue in Setup mode, press SELECT. Important: The club has the option to set limits on course duration and cool down and pause time. Refer to Club Information on page 20. page 27 C O M M E R C I A L P R O D U C T S D I V I S I O N 150 LB (68 KG): Acceptable weight entries range from 1 through 999 (pounds or kilograms). Change the number using the ▼ and ▲ keys or accept the displayed number (and continue in Setup mode) by pressing SELECT. Important: Enter a number that reflects a user’s actual weight since the calorie count and several other calculations are based on the weight entry. AGE 0: The age prompt appears if the heart rate receiver is properly installed in the display console. Acceptable entries range from 1 to 99. Change the blinking number using the ▼ and ▲ keys or accept the displayed number by pressing SELECT. Important: An age entry is required if the user wants to use the heart rate capabilities of the treadmill. Refer to Heart Rate Capabilities on page 44. THE SETUP MODE AND THE QUICKSTARTTM FEATURE The QuickStart feature can be pressed any time during the Setup prompts. Since the QuickStart program accesses factory default values (refer to Club Information on page 20) and assumes the age value is equal to zero, the SmartRate program is disabled. However, the values that the QuickStart program uses are dependent on when a user presses QuickStart in the Setup mode. See the table below. CAUTION: Pressing the QuickStart key at the PRECOR banner or after any one of the Setup prompts causes the running belt to begin moving automatically. Hold onto the handrail because the belt starts moving after a short warning message scrolls across the display, “Belt Starting 3, 2, 1,...” If QuickStart is pressed at the: The following occurs: PRECOR banner The user bypasses the Setup prompts altogether and starts working out using the Manual course. Default values apply. Course prompt The profile associated with the course name (MANL, INTV, WTLS, etc.) appears on the display and becomes the user’s selection for their workout. Workout Time prompt The information (XX MIN) that appears on the display becomes the workout time for the course. A user can change the display using the ▼ or ▲ keys. See Workout Tips. Note: A user can select an indefinite workout time, if the Club allows it. By pressing either ▼▲ key, the word “NOLIM” appears on the display where the number zero would normally appear (between 99 and 1). Refer to Club Information on page 20. page 28 C O M M E R C I A L P R O D U C T S D I V I S I O N Table continued... If QuickStart is pressed at the: The following occurs: Weight prompt The weight (150LB or 68KG) that appears on the display becomes the designated weight that the C932 uses to compute various cal culations. A user can change the display from 1 through 999 using the ▼ or ▲ keys. Age prompt The age prompt (AGE 0) that appears on the display becomes the designated age that the C932 uses for SmartRate® system. A correct age entry between 1 and 99 is very important if a user plans to use the heart rate characteristics of the treadmill. The QuickStart key acts the same as the SELECT key at this point because the user has answered all the Setup prompts. CENTER DISPLAY DURING A WORKOUT The PRECOR banner, setup prompts, course profiles and feature selections appear in the center display. Prior to working out, prompts guide the user through the Setup mode. Refer to Setup Mode and Prompts. Once a user begins a workout, the SCAN LED is lit indicating that all highlighted features (PROFILE, TIME, DISTANCE, etc.) will appear consecutively on the display. A user can change what features are scanned by pressing the SELECT key. Refer to Changing the Display Features Using the SELECT Key on page 34. The following describes the information that can appear in the display. PROFILE: At the beginning of a course, the profile appears on the right side of the display and corresponds to the course that has been selected. As a user proceeds through the workout, a blinking column indicates his or her position in the course. The height of the column indicates the level of incline. Every time the incline changes by several sequential levels (up or down) the height of the column changes by one cell. TIME: A time (0:00) display appears when a user begins working out. TIME appears in minutes and seconds. However, should a user exceed 60 minutes (during a single workout), the TIME display converts to hours and minutes. Most often, the TIME display shows the amount of time remaining in a workout. DISTANCE: The distance that a user has traveled appears (00.00) once a workout begins. Distance can appear in miles or kilometers. If the user wishes to change the display, they will need to contact the club manager or owner. Refer to the instructions found in Club Information on page 20. page 29 C O M M E R C I A L P R O D U C T S D I V I S I O N Note: If a user were to exceed 65.53 miles (or kilometers) in a single workout, the numerical display resets to zero and begins over again. CALORIES: Provides an estimate of the cumulative number of calories burned. The calorie calculation is derived from the speed, incline level, and a user’s weight. An accurate weight entry results in a more accurate calorie count. SPEED: Displays the running belt’s speed. The ▼ and ▲ keys let a user decrease or increase the treadmill’s speed. The running belt speed ranges from 0.5 to 11.0 mph (1.0 to 18.0 kph) and can be changed in 0.1 increments. Note: A user can check the speed (when it is not the chosen display) any time during a workout by tapping either SPEED ▼ or ▲ key. Pressing and holding the SPEED ▼ or ▲ key causes the treadmill’s speed to change. Refer to Keys on the Keypad on page 32. INCLINE: Displays the percent of incline during a workout. The INCLINE ▲ and ▼ keys affect the treadmill’s lift and let a user set an incline between 0% and 15.0%. The values displayed can change in 0.5% increments. Note: A user can check the incline (when it is not the chosen display) any time during a workout by tapping either INCLINE ▲ and ▼ key. Pressing and holding the INCLINE ▲ and ▼ key causes the treadmill’s incline to change. Refer to Keys on the Keypad. HR: The heart rate display lets a user monitor his or her heart rate. When a heart beat is detected, the number appears when the display scans HR (Heart Rate). The indicator (LED) light next to the HR label pulses whenever the heart rate receiver detects the user’s pulse. If a user is not wearing a POLAR® chest strap, the heart rate will not be detected and no pulse rate appears (the display remains blank). Important: If a “— — —” appears in the display, the C932 is having difficulty detecting a user’s heart rate. Make sure that the POLAR® chest strap is positioned properly on a user’s chest against the skin. If the heart rate receiver in the display console has become disconnected, the display appears blank. Refer to the Heart Rate Capabilities on page 44. SmartRate® display: Once a course begins, a blinking column segment along the right edge of the display approximates a user’s heart rate and shows which zone the user’s heart rate is in: weight loss or cardiovascular. page 30 • Weight Loss Zone: Maintaining a heart rate between 55% and 70% of a user’s maximum aerobic heart rate, helps burn enough calories that, when continued on a regular basis for 30 minutes or more, provides the greatest fat-burning results. The yellow LED’s on the SmartRate® display indicate the Weight Loss zone. • Cardiovascular Zone: Maintaining a heart rate between 70% and 85% of a user’s maximum aerobic heart rate, helps (when continued on a regular basis for 30 minutes or more) improve a user’s overall cardiovascular/cardiorespiratory fitness level. The green LED’s on the SmartRate® display indicate the Cardiovascular zone. C O M M E R C I A L P R O D U C T S D I V I S I O N The C932 Keypad The C932 keypad allows a user to control the workout session. Information that you will find in this section includes: • Tips on using the display keypad • Descriptions of each key on the keypad • How to use the SELECT key to change which features appear on the display KEYPAD TIPS Review the following tips and make sure that your customer’s know how to use the keypad. • Accurate entries are required or features such as SmartRate® will not work properly. • During the Setup prompts, a user can change the information being displayed by pressing any ▼ or ▲ key. (Incline and speed levels are not affected until the course begins.) • Press SELECT to “select” the information being displayed. • Pressing QuickStart at the PRECOR banner bypasses further selections and displays the Manual (MANL) course.

P R O D U C T S D I V I S I O N QUICKSTARTTM: When pressed at the Precor banner, the running belt begins moving after a three second delay. SmartRate® is inactive and default values apply. Keypad keys The keys on the keypad let you: • control your workout session, • answer prompts prior to starting a course, • determine which display features appear, • prematurely end a course, and • adjust the incline and speed levels. KEYS ON THE KEYPAD The following information explains the different uses of the keys from left to right. To locate each key, look at the display console or refer to Diagram 18. INCLINE ▲▼: During a workout, the INCLINE ▲▼ keys let you increase or decrease the incline in 0.5% increments. The display can show a range from 0 to 15%. Setting 0 is level (and the lowest) incline. When a user changes the incline by pressing the INCLINE ▲ or ▼ key, the number that appears on the display shows the target incline (not necessarily, the present incline) because the display can change much faster than the treadmill’s lift. Note: Any time during a workout, a user can view the actual incline by lightly touching either INCLINE ▲ or ▼ key. A user can opt to change the incline, if they hold the key down for more than one second. During Setup mode, the INCLINE ▲▼ keys are used for data selection. Pressing either ▲ or ▼ key does not affect the incline. However the ▲ or ▼ keys do affect what appears on the display. Refer to Setup Mode and Prompts on page 27. RESET: Provides access to diagnostics (see Club Information on page 20) and lets the user access the Workout Summary display while in Pause mode. Refer to Pause, Workout Summary, and Exit Features on page 39. Note that if the user presses RESET during the Setup mode, the use exits Setup mode and the PRECOR banner returns. QUICKSTART: This key lets a user bypass the Setup prompts and start their workout immediately using the Manual (MANL) course. The QuickStart key can be pressed any time during the Setup prompts.

If a user turns an item “ON,” the indicator light next to the item remains lit and the featured information continually appears on the display. The SCAN LED turns off indicating that the display is no longer scanning all the features. 2. To reset to scan mode, press the SELECT key until the SCAN LED is lit. page 34 C O M M E R C I A L P R O D U C T S D I V I S I O N Exercising on the C932 Once the C932 is set up, it is ready to use. The easy-to-understand prompts let the user select a course and specify how long he or she wishes to work out. The speed and incline levels can be adapted to meet their fitness goals. Important: Club owners, managers, and personal trainers. Remind users how important it is to use the treadmill’s safety features and security clip while working out on the treadmill. Instruct them on how to attach the security clip to their clothing near their waistline. If any complications occur, a strong tug on the security cord or a quick tap on the STOP key will stop the running belt. Note: This section of the manual is written for the user because it specifically explains how to work out on the treadmill. References are made in second person. Information presented in this section includes: • Using the safety features • Quick steps to working out • Reviewing keypad and workout tips • Cooling down, pause and exiting features CAUTION: Do not allow children on or near the treadmill. If anything should get caught in the rollers, the running belt does not stop immediately. SAFETY FEATURES The C932 treadmill is a powerful machine. Safety aspects to consider include: • Always hold onto the handrail whenever you step on to or off of the treadmill. • Always attach the security clip to your clothing prior to working out. • Prior to the start of a course, the display will return to the PRECOR banner if more than two minutes elapse without a key press occurring. USING THE SECURITY CLIP A security clip is attached, by its cord, to the red Stop button that straddles the handrail. Always attach the security clip to your clothing before each workout. A tug on the cord trips the security switch and slows the running belt to a stop. If the security switch trips while you are working out, the treadmill retains your workout statistics and enters Pause mode. To resume your workout, reattach the security clip to your clothing, and press the SPEED ▲ key until you reach the desired speed. USING THE HANDRAILS Always grasp the handrails to help keep your balance when stepping on to or off of the treadmill and when you press the display keys. CAUTION: When you press the QuickStart key, keep in mind that the running belt begins moving automatically at 1.0 mph or 1.5 kph following the scrolling prompt: BELT STARTING 3, 2, 1… Other courses, such as the Interval (INTV) course have user-defined speeds. Prior to a change in speed, a three-minute warning scrolls across the display. Always grasp a handrail when the running belt changes speeds. Do not let go until you are comfortable with the running belt speed. page 35 C O M M E R C I A L P R O D U C T S D I V I S I O N USING THE STOP BUTTON The red Stop button is not part of the keypad, but it is an integral part of the treadmill’s safety features. Anytime during a workout, a firm tap on the red STOP button or a tug on the security cord slows the running belt to a stop. The treadmill retains a user’s workout statistics and enters Pause mode. Refer to Pause, Workout Summary, and Exit Features on page 39. Important: During a workout, if a user makes a mistake in pressing the STOP button, they can immediately press the SPEED ▲ to resume the speed of the running belt where they last left off. REVIEWING KEYPAD AND WORKOUT TIPS The steps to working out on the treadmill are listed on the opposite page. A short description appears in the left margin with the more thorough explanation following on the right.

Hold onto a handrail and place your feet on the right and left staging platforms, remove the security clip from your clothing, and step off the treadmill. COOLING DOWN AFTER YOUR WORKOUT Cooling down is an important aspect of your workout because it helps reduce muscle stiffness and soreness by transporting excess lactic acid out of the working muscles. Cooling down for at least three minutes helps provide a smooth transition that allows your heart rate to return to its normal (non-exercising) state. When you enter cool down, a message notifies you that you have reached the end of the course and the cool-down period is about to begin. The running belt slows by about 20 percent and the incline returns to 0 percent. The Manual course profile appears in the display. You can change the speed and incline by pressing the respective ▼ or ▲ keys. When you complete the cool-down period, a Workout Summary appears. See the information beginning on page 39. Important: The automatic cool-down period does not occur if the selected workout time is NOLIM. In any other course, the automatic cool-down period is activated when you complete the course. If you exit a course prior to its completion, then the cool down program is not implemented. page 38 C O M M E R C I A L P R O D U C T S D I V I S I O N To prematurely end the cool-down period, press the red Stop button and then RESET. Refer to the table on the next page. Your workout statistics are added to the cumulative totals while the running belt slows to a gradual stop. The Workout Summary display appears so you can review your cumulative totals. The following information shows what happens when you press certain keys while in the Cool down mode. While in Cool down, you press This is what happens..., Stop Enters Cool down - Pause mode. The running belt slows to a gradual stop. TIME stops incrementing.

This section provides: • Descriptions of the courses printed on the display console label • A more detailed look at the SmartRate® and heart rate features COURSE FEATURES • If the club allows it, you can work out indefinitely in any course (except Weight Loss). At the XX MIN prompt, select NOLIM. Important: The automatic cool-down period is not appended to courses where the duration is NOLIM. • Place a time limit on any course during the Setup prompts. At the XX MIN prompt, indicate the duration of your workout. When you complete the course, the automatic cool-down period begins. • Determine the speed and incline as you move through course. • SELECT preprogrammed courses which provide preset inclines. In Weight Loss* and Heart Rate* and Random courses, the incline automatically changes as you progress through the course profile. You have complete control over the running belt speed. You can also override the incline using the INCLINE ▲▼ keys for each upcoming segment in the course profile. The profile changes accordingly and the incline position is saved until a different course is used. When you complete a preprogrammed course, the automatic cool-down period begins. The progress that you make during a course is tracked by a blinking cursor. If the column is several segments high, the entire column blinks. • Access to heart rate and SmartRate® capabilities is available when the person exercising wears a POLAR® chest strap. The SmartRate® indicator lights do not appear if QuickStart is pressed as the PRECOR banner scrolls across the display. The different course names appear on the following pages along with a description of the course features. Refer to Diagram 19 on the next page. page 41 C O M M E R C I A L P R O D U C T S D I V I S I O N Diagram 19 C932 Course label. COURSE DESCRIPTIONS Note: The asterisk * denotes the courses that require the user to wear the POLAR® chest strap during a workout. MANUAL (MANL) Course duration: TIME set by user In the Manual course, speed and incline changes are completely under your control. The profile is initially a flat line. If changes are made to the incline, the course profile reflects the changes in all subsequent column segments. The blinking cursor indicates your position on the course. If you press QuickStart at the PRECOR banner to access the Manual course, the course TIME defaults to the club limit. You need to press the red Stop button when you have completed your workout. Note that a cool-down period does not occur when you press Stop. Always, remember to incorporate a cooling down period into your workout. Note: You have the option to designate a workout time for the Manual course during the Setup mode. For more information, refer to Quick Steps to Working Out on page 37. INTERVAL (INTV) Course duration: TIME set by user The Interval course is one of the best for conditioning your cardiovascular system. The course is designed to raise and lower your heart rate in a repeating fashion for a specified period of time. The interval course on the C932 lets you set the rest and work intervals according to your training regimen. You set the speed and incline for the first rest and work intervals and the software takes over from there, repeating the intervals throughout the course until you press the Stop button. CAUTION: Since the “speed” can be set and saved with Interval and Weight Loss courses, a warning message appears prior to the start of the course (if the set speed is greater than 1 mph or 1.5 kph). Make sure that the security clip is fastened to your clothing near your waistline. Do not proceed with the course, if you are unfamiliar with the set speeds. page 42 C O M M E R C I A L WEIGHT LOSS (WTLS) P R O D U C T S D I V I S I O N Course duration: TIME preset In the Weight Loss course, the workout time is fixed at 28 minutes. You are not prompted (during Setup mode) for a workout time after selecting this course. The course consists of seven, four-minute intervals. You can change the incline or speed (using the appropriate ▼ or ▲ key) any time during the four-minute rest or four-minute work interval. When you change the incline level or speed, the software remembers and repeats the settings for the remaining intervals. When you complete the course, the automatic cool-down period begins. For the ideal “weight loss” range, your heart rate should be between 55% and 70% of your maximum aerobic heart rate. To view the heart rate and SmartRate® features, you must wear the POLAR® chest strap. Set the incline level and speed so that your heart rate is maintained at 55% during the rest interval and 70% of your maximum aerobic heart rate during the work intervals. The weight loss range correlates to the yellow LED’s on the SmartRate® display. RANDOM (RAND) Course duration: TIME set by user Every time a Random course is selected, a different course profile appears. The segments that appear in the course profile maintain a set incline that you can override using the INCLINE ▼▲ keys. The incline is preset to zero for the first segment. The maximum incline change allowed between segments is plus or minus 4 percent. If the club lets you set the workout time at NOLIM (no limit), you need to press the red Stop button when you have completed your workout. You will need to access Manual mode to cool down. HEART RATE COURSE (HRC)* Course duration: TIME set by user This course lets you set a target for your heart rate. The treadmill adjusts the incline to maintain your target heart rate while you work out. Similar to the Weight Loss course, you must wear a POLAR chest strap. For more information, refer to Heart Rate Course on page 46. page 43 C O M M E R C I A L P R O D U C T S D I V I S I O N Heart Rate Capabilities You can make each program on the C932 a heart rate “interactive” course by monitoring and maintaining your heart rate in the SmartRate® zone best suited for your specific needs. You’ll need to obtain and wear a POLAR chest strap to activate the heart rate capabilities. Note: The SmartRate® indicator lights do not appear if you press QuickStart as the PRECOR banner is scrolling across the display. Refer to Features on the Display Console for more information. Before using the treadmill’s heart rate capabilities, take time to read the following guidelines. • Consult with your physician before engaging in any vigorous exercise. Do not use the Heart Rate Course or the treadmill’s heart rate capabilities until authorized by your physician. • Slow down and stop immediately if you experience any pain or abnormal symptoms. • Gently stretch your lower body and back before and after working out to help prevent stiffness or soreness. • Know your heart rate (pulse) and your physician-recommended heart rate target zone. Individual heart rates vary according to several physiological factors and may not correspond directly with the diagrams and tables provided. • You should not use the heart rate capabilities if you are taking any medications that either speed up or slow down your heart rate. • Always face forward on your C932 and use the handrail for balance. Keep in mind that you are wearing sensitive equipment (the POLAR® chest strap) and upper body movement should be kept to a minimum. • After putting on the chest strap, be sure that the C932 is ON. Face the display console for a minimum of 15 seconds. This allows the receiver in the console to acknowledge the presence of the transmitter. • Incorporate a cool-down period into your workout to help lower your heart rate and minimize muscle stiffness or soreness. USING THE SMARTRATE® FEATURE Add the benefit of SmartRate® to every course on the treadmill. Using SmartRate® as a visual cue helps you adjust your exercise routine to suit specific needs. SmartRate® simplifies the correlation between heart rate and exercise. You don’t have to stop concentrating on your workout to find your pulse. It is displayed right in front of you along with the SmartRate® zone. Once you begin a workout, a blinking segment in the bar graph appears on the display, if you indicated your age during the Setup prompts. The blinking segment indicates the zone that your heart rate is in: Weight Loss or Cardiovascular. Note to Club owners, managers, and personal trainers: Review the information that accompanies the Precor Heart Rate System option. It explains how to adjust and use the chest strap. page 44 C O M M E R C I A L P R O D U C T S D I V I S I O N Diagram 20 Target zones.

Always check with your physician to learn what the appropriate heart rate is for your level of fitness. Do not push yourself beyond the recommended range. The individual target zones are based on a simple algorithm: 220 minus your age. The algorithm provides a number that estimates your maximum aerobic heart rate. For the ideal “weight loss” range, your heart rate should be between 55% and 70% of your maximum aerobic heart rate. Yellow LED’s light in the SmartRate® display when your heart rate is in the weight loss range. Important: Your heart rate should never exceed 85% of your maximum aerobic heart rate or go above your target zone. Refer to Diagram 20. When you maintain your heart rate between 70% and 85% of your maximum aerobic heart rate, you are improving your overall cardiovascular/cardiorespiratory fitness level. Green LED’s light in the SmartRate® display appear when you maintain your heart rate in the cardiovascular fitness range. Maintaining your heart rate in either zone (weight loss or cardiovascular) for 30 minutes or more on a regular basis (minimum 3 times a week) provides the greatest benefits. page 45 C O M M E R C I A L P R O D U C T S D I V I S I O N HEART RATE COURSE Once you set your target heart rate and the running belt’s speed, the Heart Rate Course monitors your heart rate and automatically maintains it within a few beats per minute (bpm) of the selected target. Blinking lights on the SmartRate® bar graph appear to show the “zone” that you are in. Note: For the C932 to detect a heart rate, you must purchase the heart rate option and wear the POLAR® chest strap during a workout. The chest strap transmits your heart rate signal to the receiver that is installed in the display console. During your workout, the heart rate indicator lights and blinks at the same rate as your pulse. This lets you see what your heart rate is doing even when the display is presenting other workout statistics. To use the Heart Rate Course follow the steps found in Quick Steps to Working Out on page 37 and choose HRC as the course. Enter the workout time, your weight and age. When you begin the course, the following occurs: • The software verifies that it detects a heart rate signal. You need to press the SPEED ▲ key to begin your workout. Note: If the treadmill is having difficulty detecting your heart rate, three dashes will (- - -) appear in the Heart Rate display. Use the Precor spray that is supplied with the chest strap and readjust the strap around your chest. Make sure that it is against your skin. • The treadmill provides a three minute warm-up period before entering the Heart Rate Course. During this time, you may make changes to the incline by pressing the INCLINE ▲▼ keys. Use the SPEED ▼▲ keys to set the running belt’s speed. Note: If your heart rate moves into the heart rate zone for your age during the three minute warm-up period, the warm-up period ends and the Heart Rate Course begins. • After the warm-up period, the treadmill automatically adjusts the incline to keep your heart rate at the selected target. Pressing the INCLINE ▲▼ keys no longer affects the treadmill’s incline, but does affect a change to the target heart rate. You can also check the SmartRate® display to see if you are in your preferred zone (cardiovascular or weight loss). Note: You can change your target heart rate or speed anytime during a workout, but doing so affects the treadmill’s ability to maintain your target heart rate in the preferred zone. It takes time for the treadmill to readjust the incline so that your heart rate remains on target. CAUTION: A warning message will appear if you go above your maximum recommended heart rate target zone. Heed the warning and get permission from your personal physician before working out above the maximum recommended zone for your age and fitness level. See Diagram 20 on the previous page for the recommended target zones. • page 46 When you complete the course, continue cooling down for he designated period of time. C O M M E R C I A L P R O D U C T S D I V I S I O N Maintenance The C932 is built to withstand the rigors of the health club environment. However, as club manager or owner, you are responsible for cleaning and maintaining the unit’s integrity. If you fail to maintain the treadmill as described below, it could affect or void the Precor limited warranty. DANGER — To reduce the risk of electrical shock, always unplug the unit from its power source before cleaning it or performing any maintenance tasks. INSPECTION Perform a daily inspection of the treadmill. 1. Look and listen for slipping belts, loose fasteners, unusual noises, worn or frayed power cords, and any other indications that the equipment may be in need of service. Obtain service should you notice any of the above. Important: If you determine that the treadmill is in need of service, move it away from the main workout area and place an large “Out of Service” sign on it. While it is awaiting service, remove the power cord so no one can use the treadmill. 2. Check for worn, frayed, or missing safety lanyards. Replace missing or worn safety lanyards immediately. A safety lanyard with its security clip must be fastened to the treadmill’s red STOP button. Do not allow users on a treadmill without it. To order parts or to contact a Precor authorized service provider in your area, refer to Obtaining Service on page 7. CLEANING THE EQUIPMENT Most of the working mechanisms are protected inside the treadmill’s hood and solid base. However, for efficient operation, the treadmill relies on low friction. To keep the friction low, the treadmill must be as clean as possible. It is recommended the bed and belt be cleaned daily. Before or after each workout, use a damp, soft cloth to clean the staging platform, running bed and between the belt and running bed surface as far as you can easily reach. This removes any dust or dirt that might affect the smooth operation of the unit. Periodically, clean the treadmill’s frame, display console, handrails and running belt with a dampened (not dripping wet), clean cloth using a diluted solution of mild soap and water. To clean the groves on the belt, use a soft nylon scrub brush. Vacuum the floor underneath the unit every week to prevent the accumulation of dust and dirt. The Precor Heart Rate equipment requires little maintenance beyond keeping it dust free. Dampen a sponge or soft cloth in mild soap and water to clean the POLAR® chest strap. Dry the surface thoroughly with a clean towel. ALIGNING THE RUNNING BELT The correct alignment of the running belt is critical to the smooth operation of the treadmill. The belt is properly aligned at the factory. However, during shipping and handling or by use on an uneven surface, the belt may move off center and require a few simple adjustments. page 47 C O M M E R C I A L P R O D U C T S D I V I S I O N If you plan to align the running belt, check its operation by following the procedure in Checking the Alignment of the Running Belt on page 19. If you determine that the belt needs alignment, follow the instructions here. CAUTION: Special care must be taken when aligning the running belt. Turn OFF the treadmill while adjusting or working near the rear roller. Remove any loose clothing and tie back your hair. Be very careful to keep your finger or any other object clear of the belt and rollers, especially in front of the roller and behind the deck. The treadmill will not stop immediately if an object becomes caught in the belt or rollers. Realigning the belt takes a few simple adjustments. If you are unsure about this procedure, call Precor Customer Support (see Obtaining Service on page 7.) Take the following steps to align the running belt on the treadmill. To ensure your safety, make all adjustments while the treadmill is OFF. 1. Make sure the treadmill is OFF and the running belt has completely stopped. 2. Locate the left belt adjustment bolt in the rear end cap of the treadmill. (To determine left and right, stand at the rear of the treadmill and face the display.) The direction you turn the bolt depends on how the belt is tracking. Make all belt adjustments on the left rear corner bolt using the hex key provided. • If the belt is off center to the LEFT, turn the adjusting bolt 1/4 turn clockwise, which moves the running belt to the right. • If the belt tracks off center to the RIGHT, turn the bolt 1/4 turn counterclockwise; this moves the belt to the left. Important: Do not turn the adjusting bolt more than 1/4 turn at a time. Overtightening the bolt can damage the treadmill. 3. Turn ON the treadmill, press QuickStart, and then increase the running belt speed to 3 mph (5 kph) by pressing Speed ▲. CAUTION: Stand to the side of the treadmill. The running belt begins moving automatically after you press QUICKSTART. 4. Observe the running belt for a couple of minutes. The belt should be centered on the running bed. A few inches from either side of the side rail platform. CAUTION: If you hear any chafing or the running belt appears to be getting damaged, stop the running belt immediately by pressing the red Stop key. Contact Precor Customer Support. 5. If the belt needs additional alignment, repeat steps 1 through 4 of this procedure until the belt is properly aligned. 6. After aligning the belt, press the Stop button and Reset. Turn OFF the treadmill. Tighten any loose fasteners or other components on the equipment. If you hear unusual noises or you feel that the treadmill is in need of repair or service, contact Precor Customer Support. Refer to Obtaining Service on page 7. page 48 C O M M E R C I A L P R O D U C T S D I V I S I O N SERVICING THE TREADMILL Do not attempt to service the treadmill yourself except for the maintenance described in this manual. The unit does not contain any user-serviceable parts that require lubrication. Refer to Obtaining Service on page 7. STORING THE POLAR® CHEST STRAP Store the chest strap transmitter in a place where dust and dirt cannot accumulate on it such as, a closet or drawer. Be sure to keep the chest strap protected from extremes in temperature. Do not store it in an area that may be exposed to temperatures below 32 degrees Fahrenheit. LONG TERM STORAGE When the treadmill is not in use for any length of time, turn it OFF. Ensure that the power cord is unplugged from the wall outlet and is positioned so that it will not become damaged or interfere with other equipment or people. page 49 Precor is a registered trademark of Precor Incorporated.
