OPERATION AND ADJUSTMENT
THE PERFORMANT LUBETM WALKING BELT
an equipment-grounding conductor and a grounding
plug. Plug the power cord into a surge suppressor,
and plug the surge suppressor into an appropriate
outlet that is properly installed and grounded in
accordance with all local codes and ordinances.
Important: The treadmill is not compatible with
GFCI-equipped outlets.
Your treadmill features a walking belt coated with
PERFORMANT LUBETM, a high-performance lubricant.
IMPORTANT: Never apply silicone spray or other
substances to the walking belt or the walking platform. Such substances will deteriorate the walking
belt and cause excessive wear.
This product is for use on a nominal 120-volt circuit,
and has a grounding plug that looks like the plug illustrated in drawing 1 below. A temporary adapter that
looks like the adapter illustrated in drawing 2 may be
used to connect the surge suppressor to a 2-pole
receptacle as shown in drawing 2 if a properly
grounded outlet is not available.
HOW TO PLUG IN THE POWER CORD
DANGER:
Improper connection
of the equipment-grounding conductor can
result in an increased 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.

Grounded Outlet Box
Surge Suppressor
Grounding Pin
Your treadmill, like any other type of sophisticated
electronic equipment, can be seriously damaged by
sudden voltage changes in your home’s power.
Voltage surges, spikes, and noise interference can
result from weather conditions or from other appliances
being turned on or off. To decrease the possibility of
your treadmill being damaged, always use a surge
suppressor with your treadmill (see drawing 1 at
the right). To purchase a surge suppressor, see
your local HealthRider dealer or call 1-800-806-3651
and order part number 146148.

Grounded Outlet Box
Adapter
Use only a single-outlet surge suppressor that is
UL 1449 listed as a transient voltage surge suppressor (TVSS). The surge suppressor must have a
UL suppressed voltage rating of 400 volts or less
and a minimum surge dissipation of 450 joules.
The surge suppressor must be electrically rated
for 120 volts AC and 15 amps. There must be a
monitoring light on the surge suppressor to indicate whether it is functioning properly. Failure to
use a properly functioning surge suppressor could
result in damage to the control system of the
treadmill. If the control system is damaged, the
walking belt may change speed or stop unexpectedly, which may result in a fall and serious injury.
Surge Suppressor
Lug
Metal Screw
The temporary adapter should be used only until a
properly grounded outlet (drawing 1) can be installed
by a qualified electrician.
The green-colored rigid ear, lug, or the like extending
from the adapter must be connected to a permanent
ground such as a properly grounded outlet box cover.
Whenever the adapter is used it must be held in place
by a metal screw. Some 2-pole receptacle outlet box
covers are not grounded. Contact a qualified electrician to determine if the outlet box cover is
grounded before using an adapter.
This product must be grounded. If it should malfunction or break down, grounding provides a path of least
resistance for electric current to reduce the risk of electric shock. This product is equipped with a cord having

Measure your heart rate, if desired.
Follow the steps below to use the heart rate programs.
Note: You must wear the optional chest pulse sensor (see page 20) to use the heart rate programs.
See step 6 on page 11.
6
When the program is completed, remove the
key from the console.
1
When the program has ended, make sure that
the incline of the treadmill is at the lowest setting. Next, remove the key from the console and
put it in a safe place.Note: If the displays and
various indicators on the console remain lit
after the key is removed, the console is in the
“demo” mode. Refer to page 20 and turn off the
demo mode.
Put on the chest pulse sensor.
Refer to the instructions included with the optional
chest pulse sensor.
2
Insert the key fully into the console.
See HOW TO TURN ON THE POWER on page
10.
When you are finished using the treadmill, move
the on/off switch near the power cord to the off
position and unplug the power cord.
3
Select a heart rate program.
When the key is
inserted, the
manual mode
will be selected.
To select one of
the heart rate
programs, press
the Program button repeatedly until one of the two
heart rate program indicators lights.
The two profiles on the left side of the console
show how the target heart rate will change during
the programs. The numbers above the profiles
represent percentages of your estimated maximum heart rate. (Your estimated maximum heart
rate is determined by subtracting your age from
220. For example, if you are 30 years old, your
estimated maximum heart rate is 190 beats per
minute [220 – 30 = 190]. Therefore, if you are 30
years old, a target heart rate setting of 50% is
equal to 95 beats per minute [50% of 190 is 95]).
13
During heart rate programs, the program
display will show a
graphic that represents
your heart rate. Each
time a heartbeat is detected, an additional
peak will appear.
4
The speed and/or incline of the treadmill will then
change, if needed, to bring your heart rate closer to
the target heart rate setting for the next segment.
The program will continue in this way until no time
remains in the program. The walking belt will then
slow to a stop.
If the speed or incline setting for the current segment is too high or too low, you can adjust the setting with the Speed or Incline buttons. However, if
you decrease the speed, the incline will automatically increase; if you increase the speed, the incline will decrease. If you increase the incline, the
speed will decrease; if you decrease the incline,
the speed will increase. The treadmill will always
attempt to keep your heart rate near the target
heart rate setting for the current segment. Note:
When the incline reaches the lowest setting, the
speed cannot be increased any further. When the
incline reaches the highest setting, the speed cannot be decreased any further.
Enter your age.
When a heart rate program is selected, the letters AGE and the current
age setting will begin to
flash in the Calories/
Fat Calories/Heart Rate
display. You must enter your age to use a heart
rate program. If you have already entered your
age, go to step 5. If you have not entered your
age, press the Incline (Age Set) buttons until your
age is shown. Your age will then be saved in memory.
5
If your pulse is not detected during the program,
the letters PLS will flash in the Calories/
Fat Calories/Heart Rate display and the speed
and incline of the treadmill may automatically decrease until your pulse is detected. If this occurs,
refer to the instructions included with the chest
pulse sensor.
Press the Start button or the Speed ▲ button to
start the program.
A moment after the button is pressed, the treadmill will automatically adjust to the first speed and
incline settings for the program. Hold the handrails
and begin walking.
To stop the program at any time, press the Stop
button. Heart rate programs should not be stopped
temporarily and then restarted. To use a heart rate
program again, reselect the program and start it at
the beginning.
Each heart rate program is divided into one-minute
segments. (The Time/Incline/Segment Time display will show both the time remaining in the program and the time remaining in the current segment of the program.) One target heart rate setting is programmed for each segment. (The same
target heart rate setting may be programmed for
consecutive segments.)
6
Follow your progress with the displays.
Refer to step 5 on page 10.
7
When only three seconds remain in the first oneminute segment of the program, a series of tones
will sound and the Time/Incline/Segment Time
display and the Speed/Min-Mile display will flash.
When the program is completed, remove the
key from the console.
Refer to step 6 on page 13.

CONDITIONING GUIDELINES
WARNING:
Before beginning this
or any exercise program, consult your physician. This is especially important for individuals over the age of 35 or individuals with preexisting health problems.
The pulse sensor is not a medical device.
Various factors, including your movement,
may affect the accuracy of heart rate readings.
The sensor is intended only as an exercise aid
in determining heart rate trends in general.
The following guidelines will help you to plan your exercise program. For more detailed exercise information, obtain a reputable book or consult your physician.
EXERCISE INTENSITY
Whether your goal is to burn fat or to strengthen your
cardiovascular system, the key to achieving the
desired results is to exercise with the proper intensity.
The proper intensity level can be found by using your
heart rate as a guide. The chart below shows recommended heart rates for fat burning and aerobic exercise.
To find the proper heart rate for you, first find your age
near the bottom of the chart (ages are rounded off to
the nearest ten years). Next, find the three numbers
above your age. The three numbers define your “training zone.” The lower two numbers are recommended
heart rates for fat burning; the higher number is the
recommended heart rate for aerobic exercise.
To measure your heart rate during exercise, use the
pulse sensor. If your heart rate is too high or too low,
adjust the speed and incline of the treadmill.
Fat Burning
To burn fat effectively, you must exercise at a relatively
low intensity level for a sustained period of time.
During the first few minutes of exercise, your body
uses easily accessible carbohydrate calories for en-
ergy. Only after the first few minutes does your body
begin to use stored fat calories for energy. If your goal
is to burn fat, adjust the speed and incline of the treadmill until your heart rate is near the lowest number in
your training zone.
For maximum fat burning, adjust the speed and incline
of the treadmill until your heart rate is near the middle
number in your training zone.
Aerobic Exercise
If your goal is to strengthen your cardiovascular system, your exercise must be “aerobic.” Aerobic exercise
is activity that requires large amounts of oxygen for
prolonged periods of time. This increases the demand
on the heart to pump blood to the muscles, and on the
lungs to oxygenate the blood. For aerobic exercise,
adjust the speed and incline of the treadmill until your
heart rate is near the highest number in your training
zone.
WORKOUT GUIDELINES
Each workout should include the following three parts:
A Warm-up—Start each workout with 5 to 10 minutes
of stretching and light exercise. A proper warm-up increases your body temperature, heart rate and circulation in preparation for exercise.
Training Zone Exercise—After warming up, increase
the intensity of your exercise until your pulse is in your
training zone for 20 to 60 minutes. (During the first few
weeks of your exercise program, do not keep your
pulse in your training zone for longer than 20 minutes.)
Breathe regularly and deeply as you exercise—never
hold your breath.
A Cool-down—Finish each workout with 5 to 10 minutes of stretching to cool down. This will increase the
flexibility of your muscles and will help prevent post-exercise problems.
EXERCISE FREQUENCY
To maintain or improve your condition, complete three
workouts each week, with at least one day of rest between workouts. After a few months, you may complete up to five workouts each week if desired.
The key to success is to make exercise a regular and
enjoyable part of your everyday life.

down toward your toes as far as possible. Hold for 15 counts, then
relax. Repeat 3 times. Stretches: Hamstrings, back of knees and
back.

relax. Repeat 3 times for each leg. Stretches: Hamstrings, lower
back and groin.

3. Calf/Achilles Stretch
With one leg in front of the other, reach forward and place your
hands against a wall. Keep your back leg straight and your back
foot flat on the floor. Bend your front leg, lean forward and move
your hips toward the wall. Hold for 15 counts, then relax. Repeat 3
times for each leg. To cause further stretching of the achilles tendons, bend your back leg as well. Stretches: Calves, achilles tendons and ankles.

5. Inner Thigh Stretch
