Surge suppressors are sold at most hardware stores
and department stores. 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.
Surge Suppressor
Lug
Metal Screw
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
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.
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 at the right. 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 EXERCISE ON THE TREADMILL
training zone. It may also be helpful to set the speed
control on the console to FAT BURN to help you maintain the proper intensity level. (See page 10.)
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 pre-existing health problems.
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. It may also be helpful to set the speed control on
the console to AEROBIC to help you maintain the
proper intensity level. (See page 10.)
The following guidelines will help you to plan your exercise program. Remember—these are general guidelines only. For more information, view the included
videocassette.
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. (This chart is also found on the console.)
High Performance Athletic Conditioning
If your goal is high performance athletic conditioning,
set the speed control on the console to PERFORMANCE to help you maintain the proper intensity level.
(See page 10.) Note: During the first few weeks of your
exercise program, keep your heart rate near the low
end of your training zone.
HOW TO MEASURE YOUR HEART RATE
To measure your
heart rate, stop exercising and place
two fingers on
your wrist as
shown. Take a sixsecond heartbeat
count, and multiply
the result by ten to
find your heart
rate. (A six-second count is used because your heart
rate drops quickly when you stop exercising.) If your
heart rate is too high or too low, adjust the speed or incline of the treadmill accordingly.
To find the proper heart rate for you, first find your age
on the left side of the chart (ages are rounded off to
the nearest ten years). Next, find the three numbers to
the right of your age. The three numbers are 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.
WORKOUT GUIDELINES
Fat Burning
A well-rounded workout includes the following three
important parts:
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 energy. 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 one of the lower two numbers in your
A Warm-up
Start each workout with 5 to 8 minutes of stretching
and light exercise (see SUGGESTED STRETCHES on
page 13). A proper warm-up increases your body
temperature, heart rate, and circulation in preparation
for exercise.
12
Training Zone Exercise
to cool down. This will increase the flexibility of your
muscles and will help to prevent post-exercise problems.
After warming up, increase the intensity of your exercise until your heart rate is in your training zone for 20
to 60 minutes. (During the first few weeks of your exercise program, do not keep your heart rate in your training zone for longer than 20 minutes.) Breathe regularly
and deeply as you exercise—do not hold your breath.
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.
A Cool-down
The key to success is to make exercise a regular and
enjoyable part of your everyday life.
Finish each workout with 5 to 8 minutes of stretching
SUGGESTED STRETCHES
The correct form for several basic stretches is shown at the
right. Move slowly as you stretch—never bounce.
1
1. Toe Touch Stretch
Stand with your knees bent slightly and slowly bend forward
from your hips. Allow your back and shoulders to relax as you
reach down toward your toes as far as possible. Hold for 15
counts, then relax. Repeat 3 times. Stretches: Hamstrings,
back of knees, and back.
2
2. Hamstring Stretch
Sit with one leg extended. Bring the sole of the opposite foot
toward you and rest it against the inner thigh of your extended
leg. Reach toward your toes as far as possible. Hold for 15
counts, then relax. Repeat 3 times for each leg. Stretches:
Hamstrings, lower back, and groin.
3
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.
4
4. Quadriceps Stretch
With one hand against a wall for balance, reach back and
grasp one foot with your other hand. Bring your heel as close
to your buttocks as possible. Hold for 15 counts, then relax.
Repeat 3 times for both legs. Stretches: Quadriceps and hip
muscles.
5. Inner Thigh Stretch
Sit with the soles of your feet together and your knees outward.
Pull your feet toward your groin area as far as possible. Hold
for 15 counts, then relax. Repeat 3 times. Stretches:
Quadriceps and hip muscles.

HOW TO EXERCISE ON THE WEIGHT BENCH
Next, perform 6 to 10 of the exercises shown on the included chart. To give balance and variety to your workouts, vary the exercises from workout to workout.
Begin with 1 set of 12 repetitions for each exercise. (A
“repetition” is one complete cycle of an exercise, such
as one sit-up. A “set” is a series of repetitions performed without pausing.) As your fitness level increases, perform 2 or 3 sets for each exercise. Always
rest for at least 1 minute after each set. When you can
complete 3 sets of 12 repetitions without difficulty, you
may choose to use heavier weights. CAUTION: The
CROSSTRAINER includes three pairs of hand
weights. Other hand-held weights may be used
with the CROSSTRAINER; however, do not put
other weights on the weight rack, or use weights
weighing more than 20 pounds each.
Finish each workout with 5 to 8 minutes of stretching to
cool down. This will increase your flexibility, and will
help to reduce soreness.
The CROSSTRAINER offers a variety of exercises
designed to trim, tone, and strengthen the body.
Please read these guidelines before using the weight
bench. For more information, view the included videocassette.
It is very important to avoid overdoing it during the first
few months of your exercise program, and to progress
at your own pace. CAUTION: If you feel pain or
dizziness at any time, stop immediately and begin
cooling down.
WARNING: Before beginning any exercise program, consult your physician. This is especially
important for persons over the age of 35 or persons with pre-existing health problems.
EXERCISE FORM
For the best results, correct form is important.
Maintaining proper form means moving through the full
range of motion for each exercise, and moving only the
appropriate parts of the body. The photographs on the
included chart show the correct starting and ending positions for each exercise. Make sure to perform each
exercise with a smooth, steady motion. Exhale as you
exert yourself, and inhale as you return to the starting
position; never hold your breath.
STRENGTH TRAINING GUIDELINES
Your strength training program should include 3 workouts each week. To give your body time to rest, workouts should be on alternating days, such as Monday,
Wednesday, and Friday.
Instead of waiting for a convenient time to exercise,
plan a specific time. The morning hours work well for
many, and the self-discipline required to rise early and
exercise may result in greater productivity throughout
the day. For others, exercising before dinner offers a
chance to wind down from the day’s activities. Whatever time you choose, be consistent and stick with it.
STAYING MOTIVATED
To stay motivated, try listening to music or watching
television while you exercise. It may also be helpful to
work out with a training partner. If desired, use a calendar to keep a record of your workouts, and write key
body measurements at the end of every month.
Each workout should include the following three
essential parts: (1) a warm-up, (2) 6 to 10 exercises,
and (3) a cool-down.
Remember, the key to lasting results is to make exercise a regular and enjoyable part of your daily life.
Begin each workout with 5 to 8 minutes of stretching to
warm up (see SUGGESTED STRETCHES on page
13). This will prepare the body for exercise by increasing circulation, delivering more oxygen to the muscles,
and raising the body temperature.

MAINTENANCE AND TROUBLE-SHOOTING
Most problems can be solved by following the steps in this section. If further assistance is needed, call
our toll-free HELPLINE at 1-800-736-6879, Monday through Saturday, 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. Central Time
(excluding holidays).
PROBLEM: The power does not turn on
SOLUTION: a. Make sure that the power cord is plugged into a surge suppressor, and that the surge suppressor
is plugged into a properly grounded outlet (see page 8). 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.
b. After the power cord has been plugged in, make sure that the key is fully inserted into the console. See step 1 on page 10.
c. Check the circuit breaker located on the treadmill
frame near the power cord. If the switch protrudes
as shown, the circuit breaker has tripped. To reset
the circuit breaker, wait for five minutes and then
press the switch back in.

PROBLEM: The power turns off during use
SOLUTION: a. Check the circuit breaker located on the treadmill frame near the power cord (see the drawing
above). If the circuit breaker has tripped, wait for five minutes and then press the switch back in.
b. Make sure that the power cord is plugged in.
c. Remove the key from the console. Reinsert the key fully into the console. See step 1 on page 10.
d. If the treadmill still will not run, please call our toll-free HELPLINE.
PROBLEM: The displays of the console do not function properly
SOLUTION: a. Check the batteries in the console. See BATTERY INSTALLATION on page 9. Most problems
are the result of drained batteries.
b. Remove the six screws from the hood. Carefully remove the hood. Locate the Reed Switch (45) and
the Magnet (44) on the left side of the Pulley (49).
Turn the Pulley until the Magnet is aligned with the
Reed Switch. Make sure that the gap between the
Magnet and the Reed Switch is about 1/8”. If necessary, loosen the Screw (53) and move the Reed
Switch slightly. Retighten the Screw. Re-attach the
hood, and run the treadmill for a few minutes to
check for a correct speed reading.

PROBLEM: The walking belt is off-center or slips when walked on
SOLUTION: a. If the walking belt has shifted to the left, first remove the key and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD.
Using the allen wrench, turn the left rear roller adjustment bolt clockwise, and the right bolt counterclockwise, 1/4 of a turn each. Be careful not to overtighten
the walking belt. Plug in the power cord, insert the
key and run the treadmill for a few minutes. Repeat
until the walking belt is centered.
b. If the walking belt has shifted to the right, first remove the key and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD.
Using the allen wrench, turn the left rear roller adjustment bolt counterclockwise, and the right bolt clockwise, 1/4 of a turn each. Be careful not to overtighten
the walking belt. Plug in the power cord, insert the
key and run the treadmill for a few minutes. Repeat
until the walking belt is centered.
c. If the walking belt slips when walked on, first remove the key and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD.
Using the allen wrench, turn both rear roller adjustment bolts clockwise, 1/4 of a turn. When the walking
belt is correctly tightened, you should be able to lift
each side of the walking belt 2 to 3 inches off the
walking platform. The center of the walking belt
should just touch the walking platform. Be careful to
keep the walking belt centered. Plug in the power
cord, insert the key and run the treadmill for a few
minutes. Repeat until the walking belt is properly
tightened.

PROBLEM: The walking belt slows when walked on
SOLUTION: a. 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.
b. If the walking belt is overtightened, treadmill performance may decrease and the walking belt may be
permanently damaged. Remove the key and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. Using the allen wrench,
turn both rear roller adjustment bolts counterclockwise, 1/4 of a turn. When the walking belt is properly
tightened, you should be able to lift each side of the
walking belt 3 to 4 inches off the walking platform.
The center of the walking belt should just touch the
walking platform. Be careful to keep the walking belt
centered. Plug in the power cord, insert the key and
run the treadmill for a few minutes. Repeat until the
walking belt is properly tightened.

HOW TO MOVE THE CROSSTRAINER
Before moving the CROSSTRAINER, make sure that the bench and treadmill are folded to the storage
position, and that the lock pins are fully engaged (see HOW TO FOLD THE TREADMILL TO THE STORAGE POSITION on page 11, and HOW TO FOLD THE BENCH TO THE STORAGE POSITION on page 14).
To move the CROSSTRAINER, first hold the handrails
and place one foot on the base as shown.
Next, tilt the CROSSTRAINER back until it rolls freely on
the front wheels. Carefully move the CROSSTRAINER to
the desired location. Place one foot on the base, and
carefully lower the CROSSTRAINER until it is resting on
the base. Never move the CROSSTRAINER without
tipping it back, or the base pads may come off. To reduce the risk of injury, use extreme caution while
moving the CROSSTRAINER. Do not move the
CROSSTRAINER over an uneven surface.
