Use caution during the assembly of this product. Step 1: Step 2: Align the vertical support frame (C) to the bottom base of the treadmill deck (A). Then attach (C) to (A) using two (A-1) – set screws and two (C-1) – washers. Attach (G) & (F) to (H) using 2 (A4) bolts. A) Locate the silver feeding line attached to the inside of (D) and find the control wire attached to (A). Carefully hook the silver feeding line around the control wire harness at the bottom base of the treadmill deck (A). Feed the silver feeding line and the control wire harness into the bottom of the vertical support frame (D) and all the way though the top. As shown in (Fig 1). (Fig 1) B) Attach (E) to (H) using 2 (A5) C) Once the Wire Harness has completely passed through the vertical support frame, attach the vertical support frame (D) to the bottom portion of the deck (D) using two (A-1) – bolts and two (C-1) – washers. D) Note: Do not attach (A3) bolts until after step 3. ATTENTION: Do not fully tighten these set screws until entire unit is assembled. Step 3: A) Connect the Wire Harness to Console Wire Harness (See Fig 2). Then connect the Console (H) Heart Rate Wire Harness with the contact Bar (E) Wire Harness as Shown in Fig 3 B) Carefully align the Console (H) with the vertical support frames (D) & (C). Once aligned, secure the console (H) with 4 (A-5) bolts and 2 (C-1) washers. C) Next, insert two (A-3) set screws at the bottom of the vertical support frames and then proceed to tighten the rest of the unit. ATTENTION: When attaching the vertical support frame (D) to the treadmill deck (A) and then to the console (H) be sure not to crimp or sever the Control Wire. Severing these wires can cause the treadmill to short out. D) Finally, attach the sports bottle holder (I) by using two (A-6) Phillips screws & 2 (C-2) Washers. 11 Belt Tension and Centering Set Up Initial Adjustment After assembly and before turning power on position the rear roller using the "T" wrench (refer to the drawing if needed). Make 3 turns clockwise to avoid the belt from slipping. Make 3 Turns If belt is too far to the left side: 1) Turn the left roller bolt 1/4 turn clockwise (tighten) 2) Turn the right roller 1/4 turn counterclockwise (loosen) If belt is too far to the right side: 1) Turn the right roller bolt 1/4 turn clockwise (tighten) 2) Turn the left roller bolt 1/4 turn counterclockwise (loosen) 12 A) TENSIONING THE BELT If you can feel a slipping sensation when you plant your foot on the belt, the belt is slipping over the roller. This is normal and a common adjustment on a treadmill. To eliminate slipping, tighten both sides of the rear roller. Using an Allen wrench, tighten the roller tension bolts (located at the end caps) 1/4 of a turn clockwise as shown below. Try the treadmill again to check for slipping. Repeat if necessary, but NEVER TURN the roller bolt more than 1/4 turn at a time. 1/4 Turn CAUTION: OVER TIGHTENING OF THE ROLLER WILL SEVERELY SHORTEN THE LIFE OF THE BELT AND MAY CAUSE FURTHER DAMAGE TO OTHER COMPONENTS. NOTE: If you have tightened the running belt and are still experiencing a slipping sensation, call your Endurance dealer for service. B) CENTERING THE BELT If belt is too far to the left side: 1) Turn the left roller bolt 1/4 turn clockwise (tighten) 2) Turn the right roller 1/4 turn counterclockwise (loosen) If belt is too far to the right side: 1) Turn the right roller bolt 1/4 turn clockwise (tighten) 2) Turn the left roller bolt 1/4 turn counterclockwise (loosen) 13 C) BELT MAINTENANCE Inspect the Running belt monthly to check its condition. Look for loose pieces, tears or extremely worn areas. If these conditions occur, replace the running belt immediately. Please call Endurance Customer Support.

Fortunately thereʼs a positive reinforcing cycle between flexibility and activity. Adequate flexibility enables you to maintain an active lifestyle, and an active lifestyle makes an important contribution to maintaining adequate flexibility. These relationships grow stronger the older we become. When should I stretch? Any time is a good time to Stretch. In the morning it can work out the kinks in your back, at work, you can relax your neck and shoulders, and after work stretch out your lower back. However, you should never do your stretches before you have had a chance to warm your body up. How should I stretch? Perform the following stretches slowly and smoothly until you feel a slight “tugging” sensation on the muscles involved. Donʼt stretch to the point that you feel pain, and donʼt bounce or you could pull a muscle. Hold each stretch for 10 to 20 seconds. Exhale through the stretch, and breathe slowly. This will keep you from bouncing. Calf (back of lover leg) 1. Straight knee start with the leg to be stretched approximately three feet from the wall and the opposite leg on step forward. Lean toward the wall, keeping your heels down and feet turned in slightly. 2. Bent knee start same as above, but move approximately one foot closer to the wall and bend the knee of the back leg to be stretched. 3. Repeat using the other leg. Iliotibial Band (outside of hip) 1. Start with the leg to be stretched one step back and behind the opposite foot. Move your hips sideways toward the side of your body being stretched. Keep the upper body away from the wall and do not bend forward. 2. Repeat using the other leg. 24 Lower Back, Hips, Groin, and Hamstrings 1. Stand with the feet about shoulder- width apart and pointed straight ahead. If you are pretty flexible and need more of a stretch, cross one leg in front of the other for a few stretches, then switch legs. 2. Slowly bend forward from the hips, always keeping your knees slightly bent. 3. Stretch only to the point where you feel a tugging in the back of your legs. Side Bends 1. Stand with your feet about shoulder - width apart and toes pointed straight ahead. Keep your knees slightly bent, one hand on your hip; extend your other arm up and over your head.

Hold your right hand with your left hand and bend slowly to the left, using your left arm to pull the right arm gently over the head and down toward the ground. 3. Repeat with other side. Quadriceps (front of thigh) 1. Lying on our stomach, pull the heel toward your buttocks with the opposite hand. Keep the thigh of the leg being stretched close to the leg on the floor. 2. The same stretch can be done standing. Do not allow the thigh to come in front of you and so not bend forward at the waist. 3. Do this exercise twice – once on each leg. 25 Groin (inside of thigh) 1. Sit on the floor with the soles of your feet together. Gently push knees down toward the floor with your elbows. 2. Stand with your feet three to four feet apart and turned out slightly. 3.

Cleaning When cleaning the exterior of the unit, a non-abrasive cleanser and soft cotton cloth are strongly recommended. At no time should cleanser be applied directly to any part of the equipment. Instead, place the non-abrasive cleaning solution on a soft cloth and wipe down the unit. • Clean the Display Console and all exterior surfaces regularly. • Vacuum running belt regularly to keep debris from accumulating. • Inspect exterior parts regularly for wear and tear, especially the running belt and deck. • Inspect area under treadmill and vacuum regularly.

Use the included Treadmill Silicone Lubricant Spray (H) (see Treadmill Hardware and Components Page at the front of the book) for optimum performance and extended deck and belt life. To lubricate your deck: 1) Insert the tube into the spray tip. NEVER POINT THE SPRAY TIP OR SPRAY TUBE TOWARD YOUR FACE. 2) Make sure the treadmill is OFF and unplugged from the power source. 3) Pull up lightly on the tread belt and spray lubricant as evenly as possible between the underside of the tread belt and the top of the deck. As you use your treadmill, the lubricant will spread and even out – protecting your deck and belt. 4) Store silicone lubricant in a safe place and out of the reach of children. Warning 1) Do not spray lubricant on the top side of the tread belt. The running surface must retain traction. 2) Inspect tread belt for overspray before use. 3) If you accidentally oversprayed silicone spray on the top side of the treadbelt or the side rails, clean immediately to prevent accidental injury. 28 IN HOME LIFETIME WARRANTY CONDITIONS Endurance warrants all treadmills as follows: Treadmill Frame Treadmill Parts Treadmill Electronics Treadmill Wear Items Labor LIFETIME LIFETIME LIFETIME LIFETIME 1 YEAR 1.
