ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENTS
For your safety and to ensure good treadmill performance, the
ground on this circuit must be non-looped. Please refer to NEC
article 210-21 and 210-23. Your Treadmill is provided with a
power cord with a plug listed below and requires the listed outlet.
Any alterations of this power cord could void all warranties of this
product.
120 NEMA 5-20R
120 NEMA 5-20R
220 NEMA 6-20R
220 NEMA 6-20R
North American power cord plugs shown. Depending on your country, the plug type may vary.
DEDICATED CIRCUIT AND ELECTRICAL INFO
All Matrix units require the use of a 15 amp or 20 amp “dedicated circuit,” with a non-looped (isolated) neutral/ground, for the power
requirement. Quite simply this means that each outlet you plug into should not have anything else running on that same circuit. The
easiest way to verify this is to locate the main circuit breaker box, and turn off the breaker(s) one at a time. Once a breaker has been
turned off, the only thing that should not have power to it are the units in question. No lamps, vending machines, fans, sound systems,
or any other item should lose power when you perform this test.
Non-looped (isolated) neutral/grounding means that each circuit must have an individual neutral/ground connection coming from it,
and terminating at an approved earth ground. You cannot “jumper” a single neutral/ground from one circuit to the next.
6
In addition to the dedicated circuit requirement, the proper gauge wire must be used from the circuit breaker box, to each outlet that
will have the maximum number of units running off of it. If the distance from the circuit breaker box, to each outlet, is 100 ft or less,
then 12 gauge wire may be used. For any distance greater than 100 ft from the circuit breaker box to the outlet, 10 gauge wire must
be used.
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
The treadmill must be grounded. If it should malfunction or breakdown, grounding provides a path of least resistance for electric
current to reduce the risk of electric shock. The treadmill is equipped with a cord having an equipment-grounding conductor and a
grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all
local codes and ordinances. If the user does not follow these grounding instructions, the user could void the Matrix
limited warranty.
DANGER
Improper connection of the equipment-grounding conductor can result in a risk of electric shock. Check with a qualified
electrician or serviceman if you are in doubt as to whether the product is properly grounded. Do not modify the plug provided
with the product. If it will not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
120v units
The Matrix T5x, T7x and T7xe 120 treadmill is for use on a nominal 120-volt circuit and has a non-looped grounding plug. Make sure
that the 110-volt treadmill is connected to an outlet, NEMA 5-20R, having the same configuration as the plug. No adapter should be
used with this product.
220v units
The Matrix T5x, T7x and T7xe 220 treadmill is for use on a nominal 220-volt circuit and has a non-looped grounding plug. Make sure
that the 220-volt treadmill is connected to an outlet, NEMA 6-20R, having the same configuration as the plug. No adapter should be
used with this product.
WARNING
Connect this exercise product to a properly grounded outlet only.
Never operate product with a damaged cord or plug even if it is working properly. Never operate any product if it appears
damaged, or has been immersed in water. Contact Customer Tech Support for replacement or repair.

BASIC OPERATION
9
LOCATION OF THE TREADMILL
Place the treadmill on a level and stable surface. Please leave a clear zone behind the treadmill that is at
least the width of the treadmill and at least 79” (2000 mm) long. This zone must be clear of any obstruction
and provide the user a clear exit path from the machine. In case of an emergency, place both hands on the
side arm rests to hold yourself up and place your feet onto the side rails. For ease of access, there should
be an accessible space preferentially on both sides of the treadmill equal to 36” (915 mm) to allow a user
access to the treadmill from either side. Do not place the treadmill in any area that will block any vent or air
openings. The treadmill should not be located in a garage, covered patio, near water or outdoors.
12”
300 mm
CAUTION – RISK OF INJURY TO PERSONS
While you are preparing to use the treadmill, do not stand on the belt. Place your feet on the side rails
before starting the treadmill. Start walking on the belt only after the belt has begun to move. Never start the
treadmill at a fast running speed and attempt to jump on!
Using the SAFETY KEY
Your treadmill will not start unless the stop button is reset. Attach the clip end securely to your clothing.
This safety key is designed to cut the power to the treadmill if you should fall. Check the operation of the
safety key every 2 weeks.
6’ 7”
2000 mm
WARNING
Never use the treadmill without securing the safety key clip to your clothing. Pull on the safety key clip first to make sure it
will not come off your clothing.
PROPER USAGE
10
Your treadmill is capable of reaching high speeds. Always start off using a slower speed and adjust the speed in small increments
to reach a higher speed level. Never leave the treadmill unattended while it is running. When not in use turn the on/off switch to off
and unplug the power cord. Make sure to follow the MAINTENANCE schedule in this guide to maintain optimal performance and
prevent premature electronic failure. Keep your body and head facing forward. Do not attempt to turn around or look backwards
while the treadmill is running. Stop your workout immediately if you feel pain, faint, dizzy or are short of breath.
LEVELING the treadmill
Use of shim or adding leveling foot.
NOTE: It is extremely important that the levelers are correctly adjusted for proper operation. An unbalanced unit may cause belt
misalignment or other issues. Use of a level is recommended.
Remove the leveling shim provided on the underside of the treadmill. The shim can be found mounted on the underside of the right hand
side rail. Remove the rear foot on the side of the treadmill that is resting low. Install the shim as shown above and return the rear foot.
When installing the optional rear leveling foot accessory, remove the
existing rear foot. Replace with new leveling foot and fasten to the
frame using the existing fasteners that held in the half-moon foot.
WARNING
Our Treadmills are heavy, use care and additional help if necessary when moving.
11
­TENSIONING THE RUNNING BELT
After placing the treadmill in the position it will be used, the belt must be checked for proper tension and centering. The belt might
need to be adjusted after the first two hours of use. Temperature, humidity, and use cause the belt to stretch at different rates. If the
belt starts to slip when a user is on it, be sure to follow the directions below.
A
Locate the two hex head bolts on the rear of the treadmill. The bolts are located at each end of the frame at the back of the
treadmill. These bolts adjust the rear belt roller. Do not adjust until the treadmill is on. This will prevent over tightening of one side.
B
The belt should have equal distance on either side between the frame. If the belt is touching one side, do not start the treadmill.
Turn the bolts counter clockwise approximately one full turn on each side. Manually center the belt by pushing the belt from side to
side. Tighten the bolts the same amount as when the user loosened them, approximately one full turn. Inspect the belt for damage.
C While the treadmill is running at 3 mph, observe the belt position. If it is moving to the right, tighten the right bolt by turning it
clockwise ¼ turn, and loosen the left bolt ¼ turn. If it is moving to the left, tighten the left bolt by turning it clockwise ¼ turn and
loosen the right ¼ turn. Repeat Step 3 until the belt remains centered for several minutes.
D
Check the tension of the belt. The belt should be very snug. When a person walks or runs on the belt, it should not hesitate or slip.
If this occurs, tighten the belt by turning both bolts clockwise ¼ turn. Repeat if necessary.
NOTE: Use the orange strip in the lateral position of the side rails as criteria to confirm the belt is properly centered. It is necessary to
adjust the belt until the edge of the belt is parallel to the orange or white strip.
CAUTION
Do not run belt faster than 1 mph while centering. Keep fingers, hair and clothing away from belt at all times.

Using the HEART RATE function
Your unit could be equipped with a heart rate pulse grip.
The heart rate function on this product is not a medical device. While heart rate grips can provide a relative estimation of
your actual heart rate, they should not be relied on when accurate readings are necessary. Some people, including those in
a cardiac rehab program, may benefit from using an alternate heart rate monitoring system like a chest or wrist strap. Various
factors, including movement of the user, may affect the accuracy of your heart rate reading. The heart rate reading is intended
only as an exercise aid in determining heart rate trends in general. Please consult your physician.
PULSE GRIPS
Place the palm of your hands directly on the grip pulse handlebars. Both hands must grip the bars for your heart rate to register. It
takes 5 consecutive heart beats (15-20 seconds) for your heart rate to register. When gripping the pulse handlebars, do not grip
tightly. Holding the grips tightly may elevate your blood pressure. Keep a loose, cupping hold. You may experience an erratic readout
if consistently holding the grip pulse handlebars. Make sure to clean the pulse sensors to ensure proper contact can be maintained.
14
WIRELESS HEART RATE RECEIVER
When used in conjunction with a wireless chest transmitter, your heart rate can be transmitted wirelessly to the unit and displayed
on the console.
Prior to wearing the wireless chest transmitter on your chest, moisten the two rubber electrodes with water. Center the chest strap
just below the breast or pectoral muscles, directly over your sternum, with the logo facing out. NOTE: The chest strap must be tight
and properly placed to receive an accurate and consistent readout. If the chest strap is too loose, or positioned improperly, you may
receive an erratic or inconsistent heart rate readout.

WARNING!
Heart rate monitoring systems may be inaccurate. Over exercising may result in serious injury or death. If you feel faint, stop
exercising immediately.

One of the most common wear and tear items on a treadmill is
the deck and belt combination. If these two items are not properly
maintained they can cause damage to other components. This
product has been provided with the most advanced maintenance
free lubricating system on the market. The Matrix Ultimate Deck™
does not require any maintenance, other than cleaning and belt
tightening, for up to 25,000 miles.
C Do not pour water or cleaning solutions on any surface. This
could cause electrocution.
WARNING: Do not run the treadmill while cleaning the belt and
deck. This can cause serious injury and can damage the machine.
D
Wipe the console and side rails after every use.
E
Brush away any wax deposits from the deck and belt area.
This is a common occurrence until the wax is worked into the
belt material.
Maintain the belt and deck by wiping the sides of the belt and
deck with a clean cloth. The user can also wipe under the belt 2
inches on both sides removing any dust or debris.
F
Be sure to remove any obstructions from the path of the
elevation wheels including power cords.
G Monthly, unplug the treadmill and remove the motor cover.
Check for debris and clean with a dry cloth or small vacuum
nozzle.
H
For cleaning 7xe displays, use distilled water in an atomizer
spray bottle. Spray distilled water onto soft, clean, dry cloth
and wipe display until clean and dry. For very dirty displays,
adding vinegar is recommended.
WARNING: Do not plug the treadmill in until the motor
cover has been reinstalled.

WORKOUT DESCRIPTIONS
FIT TEST
Your Matrix treadmill offers a variety of fitness tests-the Gerkin firefighter protocol, the WFI firefighter protocol, the Army, Navy,
USMC, and USAF as well as the Physical Efficiency Battery (PEB).
The Gerkin protocol was developed by Dr. Richard Gerkin of the Phoenix (Arizona) Fire Department. It is a sub-maximal graded
treadmill evaluation used by many Fire Departments across the United States to assess the physical condition of the firefighters. The
test requires constant monitoring of the user’s heart rate so the use of a telemetric chest strap is highly encouraged. The workout
operates as follows:
Warm-up: The warm-up is 3 minutes long and runs at 3.0 mph (4.8 kph) and 0% incline.
Stage 1: At the 3 minute mark, the treadmill will gradually increase speed to 4.5 mph (7.2 kph). The actual test begins at 4.5
mph (7.2 kph).
Stage 2: After one minute, the treadmill incline will increase
to 2%.
Stage 3: After one minute, the treadmill speed increases to
5.0 mph (8.0 kph).
Stages 4 through 11: After every odd minute, the treadmill incline will increase by 2%. After every even minute, the
treadmill speed will increase by 0.5 mph (0.8 kph). Once the user’s heart rate exceeds the target heart rate (85% of
maximum as determined by the equation (220-Age)*%=target heart rate zone), the individual continues the evaluation for
an additional 15 seconds. During the 15 second period, the evaluation remains at the stage where the target heart rate is
exceeded, without any change to speed or incline. If the heart rate does not return to or below the target heart rate, the
evaluation ends and the final evaluation stage is recorded. If the heart rate returns to or below the target heart rate, the
program continues at the point where it would have been had the program not stabilized for 15 seconds.
Test completion: The test is completed when user heart rate exceeds the target for more than 15 seconds or the user
completes all 11 stages, whichever occurs first. The treadmill will enter a cool down cycle for 3 minutes at 3.0 mph (4.8 kph),
0% incline.
