ision Fitness began as the fitness
division of Trek® Bicycle Company, one
of the world’s largest manufacturers of
quality outdoor bicycles. At Trek, we
pioneered the development of the smoothest and
quietest exercise bikes available. In 1996, Vision
Fitness was spun off by the former Trek Fitness
management team to continue to bring to market
innovative fitness products. We offer our customers the
same combination of quality, value, and performance
that has made our founding company the most asked
for bicycle brand in America.

All of our treadmills are designed with the realities of
home exercise in mind. Our “Power I.Q.™” PWM
Motor Controller keeps the tread belt travelling at a
smooth, consistent speed. Our ECS Elastomer
Cushioning System™ assures a comfortable response
with each foot strike. Finally, our HRC Heart Rate
Control system allows you to achieve the most
efficient workout possible.
At the recent Health and Fitness trade show, our
dealers awarded us with the Best Customer Service in
the industry. We take great pride in offering the best
service in the industry to all our customers.
We invite you to walk or run on any of our treadmills

Q u a l i t y
selecting the right equipment for you
C H E C K L I S T
Heavy Gauge Steel Frame
■ WHAT TYPE OF EQUIPMENT WILL YOU USE? Don’t be overly concerned about which type of equipment is
‘best’. Nearly all types of aerobic equipment will deliver a beneficial workout. The more important
question is this - Which type of equipment will you use? Walking and running are America’s #1
participation activities with over 67 million people participating last year. A treadmill lets you bring
your favorite outdoor activity indoors.
■ TRY IT FIRST. Always try a new fitness product first. Spend 5 minutes or more on the equipment to make sure
it fits you and that the motion is fluid and natural, not awkward. Also, make sure the levels can be adjusted
to meet your needs.
■ IS IT BOTH AFFORDABLE AND GOOD QUALITY? Some types of equipment such as treadmills deliver a good workout, but are inherently more expensive than other types of fitness products. Since treadmill prices vary over a
wide range, make sure no shortcuts have been taken by reviewing our No-Compromise Design & Affordable
Quality Design sections.

No-Compromise
D E S I G N
We’ve taken a No-Compromise approach to
the selection of every component used in
Vision Fitness 8000 Series treadmills.
using a heart rate monitor
This starts by using only component suppliers with years of treadmill manufacturing
The American Heart Association recommends that you exercise 3 to 4 days
per week at 60 to 75% of your maximum heart rate to maintain cardiovascular
fitness. By monitoring your heart rate while you exercise, you can achieve
the optimally beneficial workout in the minimum amount of time.
experience. Combined, our key component suppliers have over 40 years experience in the
treadmill business. Throughout our component selection process, we are constantly asking
the simple but critical question —Which part is more reliable? This approach to product
design means we will never be the low price treadmill manufacturer. That’s not our goal.
Our goal is to design and build treadmills that will provide you with year after year of

performance, with minimal maintenance or service — and to do that we only use brand-
HEART
INDUSTRIAL GRADE MOTORS WITH RATING OF F OR H In the 8000 Series, Vision Fitness uses only
2 hp continuous duty F frame motors from Leeson FHP or Baldor. Horsepower ratings are
just one characteristic of a motor. Other key motor features are insulation grade,
ventilation, bearings, and brush access. In general, a larger motor with superior insulation
(ratings of F or H) will last longer because of superior cooling characteristics. (Less
expensive motors are rated A, B, or C.) All our motors use top grade ball bearings on
both ends of the motor shaft whereas less expensive motors often use bushings. Also,
our motor brushes, which are a slow wearing part on any motor, can be easily accessed
without motor disassembly.

YOUR HEART KNOWS BEST Heart rate training is the most
effective way to burn fat and lose weight. Best of all it’s easy to
do; simply enter your target heart rate into the console (turn
to Page 25 to find your target heart rate). The console then
automatically adjusts the elevation on the treadmill to keep
you in your target heart rate zone. The heart rate control
utilizes a wireless telemetric strap that is worn around your
chest to send your heart rate information to the console.

basic fitness guidelines*
S T R E T C H F I R S T Before beginning your workout,
spend a few minutes doing gentle stretching exercises.
W A R M U P The first 2 to 5 minutes of a workout should
be devoted to warming up. The warm up will gradually
prepare your muscles for the more vigorous workout.
THE HEART OF YOUR WORKOUT
how often?
The American Heart Association recommends that you exercise
at least 3 to 4 times per week to maintain cardiovascular fitness.
If you have other fitness goals, such as weight loss or athletic conditioning,
you will achieve your goal faster working out 5 to 6 times per week.
how long?
For aerobic conditioning benefits, it’s recommended that you
exercise from 24 to 32 minutes per session. Be sure to start slowly
and gradually increase your time. If your primary fitness goal is weight
loss, longer sessions at lower intensities have been found to be most effective.
how hard?
Always begin an exercise program at low intensities. Aerobic
exercise does not have to be painful to be effective. If while
exercising you are too winded to maintain a conversation without gasping,
you are working out too hard.
24
C O O L
D O W N Use a lower resistance setting at the end
of your workout to gradually lower your heart rate. A cool
down period allows your heart to adjust to the decreased demand.
*Always consult your physician before beginning an exercise program. The Owner’s
Guide you receive with your purchase covers these guidelines in more detail.

2-PLY BELT There will be minimal belt stretch in a 2-Ply
Belt which means less frequent belt tensioning is required
than with a standard 1-Ply Belt. A 2-Ply Belt will also lay
flatter over time without curling or puckering. In addition,
the 2-Ply weaving provides a more stable side-to-side walking
surface. Some thin 1-Ply belts have a more pliable weave and will
have a noticeable lateral or sideways shift with each foot-plant.
2.5” CROWNED ROLLER A larger roller means a larger belt contact
area. The advantage of a larger contact area is that the running belt
can then be adjusted looser without slipping. Less tension on the
belt allows the entire power system to run cooler by reducing the
load on the roller bearings, motor and controller. The larger
roller tubing also permits the use of a larger bearing and larger
diameter roller axle, which also extends the life of the roller. This is
why you’ll only see a 2.5” or greater rollers on light institutional and club treadmills. A crowned roller is
machined so that it has a wider diameter in the center than on the ends. This crowning helps the belt to selfcenter as you use it.
PREWAXED PHENOLIC COATED DECK A Prewaxed Phenolic Slik-Dek needs far less care than a silicone lube
deck. The wax film from the deck impregnates the filament backing of the belt providing a low friction,
long lasting coating. Because silicone by nature is more ‘migratory’ (not wanting to stick to anything), less
expensive silicone lube decks require frequent re-applications of silicone. Failure to lubricate frequently
enough will increase the friction between the deck and belt potentially causing a treadmill malfunction or
breakdown.
WARRANTY Vision Fitness offers a limited lifetime warranty on the frame, a fiveyear motor, and a three-year parts/electronics and one-year labor warranty for
home use on the 8000 Series.*

POWER IQ™ The Digital Concepts PWM Motor
Controller Board in our treadmills have built in
intelligence. If the current draw (amperage) were
ever to rise above a preset limit, the board would automatically turn the power
off to the motor preventing costly damage to either the controller or the motor.
The built in “Power Off” switch means that if the belt were to get
jammed or stop for any reason, the treadmill would be shut off. The
board can be reset simply by turning the power switch off for 30
seconds, and restarting. Our PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) Motor
Controller will be both quieter and deliver more power than a standard
SCR controller.

BIGGER IS BETTER It’s important that you feel
comfortable working out on your treadmill. The
more comfortable you feel, the more likely you are
to continue using your treadmill and achieve your
fitness goals. The 60” x 20” running surface on
our T8600 Series and T8500HRC is 23% larger than
most of our competitors’. Our T8400HRC, T7400 and
T7000 have a running surface that measures a 54” x 20” (11%
greater than most of our competition). Vision Fitness treadmills
give you room to roam.

E.C.S. ELASTOMER CUSHIONING SYSTEM offers the perfect amount of vertical
cushioning with each strike of the foot. When your foot strikes the
treadmill, the elastomers only flex in a vertical motion, never side to side
or front to back. The side to side and front to back motion makes for
unstable foot placement and sloppy cushioning. The amount of cushioning
on a treadmill is very important. Too much and the treadmill feels mushy, too little and the treadmill feels like
your running barefoot on cement. We use a special set of eight strategically placed elastomers to support our
deck from the treadmill frame. Each elastomer is poly rubber resin that is designed to a specific durometer,
giving you the perfect amount of cushioning with each strike of your foot.
THE HEAVIER THE BETTER All of our treadmills are made of an extra heavy gauge steel. A heavier treadmill
provides a more solid, stable running/walking surface, with minimal shake and bounce. Lift a corner of one of
our treadmills and you can immediately feel the difference for yourself, but be careful they are heavy.
COURSE PROGRAMS HAVE LEVELS Course programs are a great way
to make a workout more interesting. But since we are all at
different levels of physical conditioning, it’s critical that we have
the option of not only choosing the program, but also choosing
the level of difficulty. Vision Fitness provides nine different
levels for each course profile so you can find the level that best fits
your needs.
ISO 9001 QUALITY CONTROL The first step is to select the right components, the
second, and equally important step is to assemble these components with
consistency and precision. Final assembly of Vision Fitness treadmills is performed
in an ISO 9001 Quality Certified facility. ISO standards are an internationally
recognized quality methodology designed to assure the highest standards of
production.
In addition, each treadmill goes through a final detailed 44 point inspection.
Important standards such as vibration and decibel readings are taken to assure only the
highest quality treadmill is shipped.

BUILT FOR THE LONG HAUL The T8600HRC & T8600S are built for the light institutional
market, which includes hotels, rehabilitation centers, corporate fitness centers and
municipal facilities. These markets require products that are designed to hold up to many
hours of use and abuse. Every component of the T8600HRC & T8600S are built to meet
these demanding specifications. This attention to detail makes the T8600 Series the perfect
light institutional treadmill, or the ultimate home treadmill.
ez•START ™ CONSOLES Both the T8600HRC & T8600S come with our ez•START ™
feature. The Large “Safety Stop” Off button provides piece of mind. The T8600S is our noprogram model that allows you to get on and go, you can adjust the elevation from 0 to 12
degrees and the speed from .5mph to 12mph while viewing time, calories, distance and
pace. The T8600HRC has built in heart rate control along with 6 programs from intervals
to weight loss. Each of the programs has 9 different levels to keep you motivated.
SIEGLING COOL-WEAVE™ 2-PLY BELT The Siegling
Cool-Weave™ belt runs cooler than conventional
belts, which adds to the longevity of the entire

treadmill.
D&P 1” COMMERCIAL GRADE SLIK-DEK™ has a prewaxed phenolic coating that impregnates the filament backing of
the belt providing a low friction, long lasting coating. The deck is also coated
on both sides so that after extensive use, it can be reversed for twice the life.

Both walkers and runners will enjoy the expansive feeling of this Full Platform Treadmill.
FOLLOW YOUR HEART Heart rate training is the smartest and most effective way to get a
workout in the least amount of time. The console automatically adjusts the elevation on
the treadmill to keep you in your target heart rate zone. The telemetric heart rate utilizes a
wireless transmitter worn around your chest to send your heart rate information to the
console.
NEVER-GET-BORED COURSE PROFILES Choices, choices and more choices. Speed programs,
elevation programs, distance programs. The T8500HRC has two Weight Loss Profiles,
Speed Intervals, a 5-K and 10-K Course, all with nine levels of intensity to choose from.

ROOM TO ROAM The Vision Fitness T7400 is not as large as our T8500HRC treadmill, but
its 54” x 20” running surface is still 11% larger than most competitors. The 20” wide belt
and security, the T7400 comes standard with both front and side handlebars.
EASY TO READ CONSOLE The 3-window LED display allows you to scan for Time, Distance,
Pace or Calories, while always viewing Speed and Elevation. The
ez•START ™
feature lets you get on the treadmill and begin exercising immediately. It is rare to find an
affordable quality treadmill with as many programs as the T7400. You can choose from
Intervals to Weight Loss to a 5K or 10K Run, and each of the Programs offers 9 different
levels. Integrated into the console is a personal stereo/waterbottle holder.
2.5” CROWNED ROLLER means a larger belt
contact area. The advantage of the larger
contact area is that it allows the entire power
system to run cooler by reducing the load on
the roller bearings, motor, and controller. The
crowning on the roller helps the belt to self-

fraying or curling.

STAY MOTIVATED Our T8400HRC lets you pick from 5 profiles from intervals to weight loss
to 5K and 10K workouts. Each of the profiles has nine different challenging levels, for a
total of 47 different workouts. Our heart rate control program automatically adjusts the
elevation of the T8400HRC to keep you in your target heart rate zone. Heart rate training
is the most effective way to burn fat and lose weight.
IT’S ALL IN THE DETAILS What separates the T8400HRC from our competitors is in the
details. Our Power I.Q.™ PWM Motor Controller has a built in “Power Off” Switch so that
if the belt were to ever become jammed, the motor automatically shuts off. This
feature prevents costly damages to the motor and motor controller. All of the components
that go into the T8400HRC are designed to fit and work together to exacting standards.
That is why final assembly of all Vision Fitness treadmills is done in an ISO 9001 Quality
Certified Facility. In addition, each treadmill goes through a final detailed 44-point
inspection. Important standards such as vibration and decibel readings are taken to assure
only the highest quality treadmill is shipped.

Our ECS Elastomer Cushioning System™ offers the
perfect amount of vertical cushioning with each strike of

1.7MM ANTI-STATIC BELT The belt that we use on
our 7000 Series treadmills is almost twice as
thick as our competitors’ at this price point.
The additional thickness of our belt will help
prevent curling on the edges and premature
wear.
2.5” CROWNED ROLLER A larger roller means a
larger belt contact area. The advantage of a
larger contact area is that the running belt
can then be adjusted looser without slipping.
Less tension on the belt allows the entire
power system to run cooler by reducing the
load on the roller bearings, motor and controller. A crowned roller is machined so that it has a
wider diameter in the center than on the ends. This crowning helps the belt to self-center as you
use it, without causing belt fraying or curling.
PREWAXED PHENOLIC COATED DECK A Prewaxed Phenolic deck needs far less care than a silicone lube
deck. The wax film from the deck impregnates the filament backing of the belt providing a low
friction, long lasting coating.
ISO 9001 QUALITY CONTROL Final assembly of Vision Fitness treadmills is
performed in an ISO 9001 Quality Certified facility. ISO is an internationally
recognized quality system.
WARRANTY On our 7000 Series we offer a limited lifetime warranty on the frame, a
five-year motor, and a two-year parts/electronics and one-year labor warranty for

equipment we have carefully selected key components for our value line of treadmills.
These treadmills are designed for lighter weight users and more for the walkers. We have
determined which components we can change and still have a high quality treadmill.
Our goal remains the same as with our 8000 Series Performance line of treadmills;
design and build treadmills that will provide you with year after year of performance,
with minimal maintenance or service.
CAMBRIDGE MOTOR WORKS™ 2HP CONTINUOUS DUTY MOTOR
Vision Fitness has specified all of the components that go into
the making of our exclusive Cambridge Motor Works™
motor. We have specified a motor that gives the best
ventilation, bearings and brush access in a value priced treadmill.

POWER IQ™ The Digital Concepts PWM
Motor Controller Board in our treadmills
have built-in intelligence. If the current
draw (amperage) were ever to rise above a preset limit, the board would
automatically turn the power off to the motor preventing costly damage to
either the controller or the motor. The built in “Power Off” switch means
that if the belt were to get jammed or stop for any reason, the treadmill
would be shut off. The board can be reset simply by turning the power
switch off for 30 seconds, and restarting. Our PWM (Pulse Width
Modulation) Motor Controller will be both quieter and deliver more
power than an SCR controller.
