Read the following before using the heart rate or SmartRate
features.
•
Consult your physician before engaging in any vigorous
exercise. Do not use the heart rate programs until
authorized by your physician.
Know your heart rate and your physician-recommended
heart rate target zone. Individual heart rates vary
according to several physiological factors and may not
correspond directly with Diagram 6.

Wearing a Chest Strap
During a workout, the heart rate features appear on the
display when you wear a chest strap. To receive an accurate
reading, the chest strap needs to be in direct contact with
your skin.
1. Carefully dampen the back of the strap with tap water
Refer to Diagram 7.
Important: Do not use deionized water. It does not have
the proper minerals and salts to conduct electrical
impulses.
2. Adjust the strap and fasten it around your chest. The
strap should feel snug, not restrictive. Refer to
Diagram 8.
.
Diagram 8: Adjust chest strap
3. Make sure that the chest strap is right side up, lies
horizontally across your chest, and is centered in the
middle of your chest. Refer to Diagram 9.
Diagram 7: Moisten chest strap
Diagram 9: Fasten chest strap
After you put on the chest strap, face the display console for
a minimum of 15 seconds. This allows the receiver in the
console to recognize the signal from the chest strap.

14
Using the Heart Rate
Touch-Sensitive Handrail Grips
While exercising, you must grasp both touch-sensitive
handrail grips for a minimum of five to ten seconds to
transmit your heart rate to the display. Refer to Diagram 10.
Usually, the concentration of salts in a person’s perspiration
provides enough conductivity to transmit a signal to the
receiver inside the display console. However, some people,
because of body chemistry or erratic heart beats cannot use
the touch-sensitive heart rate feature on the treadmill. A
chest strap may provide better results.
Important: While exercising, do not grasp the touchsensitive handrail grips and wear the chest strap at the
same time. The touch-sensitive handrail grips override the
signals from the chest strap transmitter. If used together,
inconsistent readings may occur.
Using SmartRate
Touch-sensitive
handrail grips
Diagram 10: Touch-sensitive handrail grips
The SmartRate feature helps you monitor and maintain your
heart rate in the target zone best suited to your specific
needs. All 10 LEDs may light during a workout. When the
treadmill detects a heart rate, a single LED blinks and
indicates the zone that your heart rate is in.
Important: To use the SmartRate feature, you must choose
a program and enter your age during the setup phase of
your exercise session.
The 10 LEDs in the SmartRate display are color-coded. A
pulsating orange LED indicates you are outside the
recommended heart rate target zone. Green LEDs indicate
when you are exercising within the recommended fat burn or
cardio fitness zones.
Owner’s Manual: Heart Rate Features
15
Table 1 shows the percents used in calculating the heart rate
target zones. While your heart rate remains within these
zones, the corresponding lights blink and provide a visual cue.
The calculation used to determine your maximum aerobic heart
rate is (220 minus your age). When you multiply it by the
percent indicated in Table 1, you can understand the relationship between the pulsating LED and your target heart rate.
CAUTION: Your heart rate should never exceed 85% of
your maximum aerobic heart rate or go above PEAK. If it
does, immediately reduce your pace or adjust the incline
to return your heart rate to your physician-recommended
target zone.

Exercise to Your Target Heart Rate
Heart Rate Analysis
A heart rate receiver is an integral part of the display so you
can monitor your heart rate while exercising. If you wear a
chest strap or grasp both touch-sensitive handrail grips, your
heart rate (beats per minute) appears on the display.
Every time you complete a program using the chest strap or
touch-sensitive handrail grips, the treadmill provides a heart
rate analysis after the workout summary.
The Precor web site (www.precor.com) has several
suggestions for workouts with varying levels of intensity. It
provides many workout details that include the appropriate
target heart rate.
The treadmill includes several programs that let you exercise
based on a specified target heart rate. As you exercise, the
heart rate programs monitor your heart rate and
automatically maintain it within a few beats per minute (bpm)
of your selected target. Refer to Table 2.
Your average heart rate appears followed by the maximum
heart rate achieved during your workout. A third display
appears, if you entered your age, and indicates the amount of
time your heart rate remained between the target zones
shown.
The heart rate analysis is based on how often your heart rate
signal is received while exercising. If you use the chest strap,
the average heart rate will be more accurate than if you
occasionally grasp the touch-sensitive handrail grips.
To use these programs, press the PROGRAMS - HEART

maintain your heart rate within two beats per minute of the
target heart rate while you exercise. To use these programs,
you must enter your age and wear a chest strap or grasp the
touch-sensitive handrail grips so your heart rate can be
monitored throughout the session. Refer to Table 5 for more
information about the heart rate programs.
Important: Consult your physician to determine the
appropriate target heart rate for your age and fitness level.
If your physician recommends a different target heart rate
than the one that appears on the display, use the OPTIONS
key to change your target heart rate while exercising. Do not
exercise over the recommended range of 85% of your
maximum aerobic heart rate.
Owner’s Manual: Programs
The Heart Rate programs enhance your overall
cardiovascular fitness levels to help you achieve your weight
loss and fitness goals. Read through the following tips
before selecting a program. These tips provide general
information regarding how the programs function. For more
information and exercise suggestions, refer to the Precor
web site at www.precor.com.
•
Each program provides a 3-minute warm-up period.
During this time, you may change the incline or speed,
but you cannot change to a distance or calorie goal. At
the end of the warm-up period, the program automatically
controls the incline. Pressing the INCLINE arrow keys
has no affect.
Note: When your target heart rate is achieved or the
3-minute period elapses, the warm-up period ends and
the program begins.

•
•
•
The program sets the target heart rate as a percentage of
220 minus your age. Changing the target heart rate or
speed affects the unit’s ability to maintain your target
heart rate in the preferred zone. It takes time for the
treadmill to readjust the incline so that your heart rate
remains on target. Check the SmartRate and the HEART
RATE displays to see if you are maintaining your preferred
zone and to determine your actual heart rate. For
information about understanding your target heart rate,
refer to Heart Rate Features.
To change your target heart rate, refer to Adjusting Your
Target Heart Rate.

PERFORMANCE
The Fitness Test provides a 15-minute test consisting of five
3-minute stages. You cannot adjust the speed or incline
levels. When you complete the test, the display provides a
fitness level.
The Fitness Test measures the maximum amount of oxygen
(V02 max) the body can use for energy production during
exercise. The higher the amount of oxygen that your body
can use enhances your ability to exercise for prolonged
periods of time. The test results can help you gauge the
effectiveness of your current exercise routine and tailor it to
meet your fitness goals.
Important: You must wear the chest strap throughout the
Fitness Test. If the heart rate reception is erratic, incorrect
readings can occur and the test will automatically end. If
you have completed at least two stages of the test, you will
receive a score.

Troubleshooting Heart Rate
Table 9 may help you understand and troubleshoot erratic
heart rate readings.
Important: A heart rate can only be detected when the
Precor heart rate receiver is properly installed in the display
and the treadmill is turned On. You must also wear the chest
strap or hold on to both touch-sensitive handrail grips.
To conduct electrical impulses from a user’s heart, both
touch-sensitive handrail grips must be grasped firmly for five
to ten seconds. Usually, the concentration of salts in a
person’s perspiration provides enough conductivity to
transmit a signal to the receiver in the display console.
However, because of body chemistry or erratic heartbeats,
some people cannot use the heart rate feature. A chest strap
may provide better results. Refer to the QuickStart Card for
proper placement of the chest strap.

Maintenance
It is important to perform the minor maintenance tasks
described in this section. Failure to maintain the treadmill as
described here could void the Precor Limited Warranty.
DANGER
To reduce the risk of electrical shock,
always unplug the unit from its power
source before cleaning it or
performing any maintenance tasks.
Inspection
Inspect the treadmill daily.
1. Look and listen for slipping belts, loose fasteners,
unusual noises, worn or frayed power cords, and any
other indications that the equipment may be in need of
service. If you notice any of these, obtain service.
Important: If you determine that the treadmill needs
service, make sure that the treadmill cannot be used
inadvertently. Turn the unit Off, and then unplug the
power cord from its power source. Make sure other
users know that the treadmill needs service.
Owner’s Manual: Maintenance
2. Check for worn, frayed or missing safety lanyards.
Replace missing or worn safety lanyards immediately.
Do not exercise on the treadmill without attaching the
safety clip to your clothing.
To order parts or to contact a Precor authorized service
provider in your area, refer to Obtaining Service.
Cleaning the Equipment
Most of the working mechanisms are protected inside the
hood and base of the treadmill. However, for efficient
operation, the treadmill relies on low friction. To keep the
friction low, the unit’s running belt, staging platforms, and
internal mechanisms must be as clean as possible.
Precor recommends the treadmill be cleaned before and
after each workout. Use mild soap and water to dampen a
soft cloth and wipe all exposed surfaces. This helps remove
any dust or dirt.
CAUTION: Do not use any acidic cleaners. Doing so will
weaken the paint or powder coatings and void the Precor
Limited Warranty. Never pour water or spray liquids on any
part of the treadmill. Allow the treadmill to dry completely
before using.
70
Frequently vacuum the floor underneath the unit to prevent
the accumulation of dust and dirt, which can affect the
smooth operation of the unit. Use a soft nylon scrub brush to
clean the running belt.
Storing the Chest Strap
Store the chest strap in a place where it remains free of dust
and dirt such as, in a closet or drawer. Be sure to protect
the chest strap from extremes in temperature. Do not store it
in a place that may be exposed to temperatures below 32° F
(0° C).
To clean the chest strap, use a sponge or soft cloth
dampened in mild soap and water. Dry the surface
thoroughly with a clean towel.
Checking the Alignment of the
Running Belt
Proper belt alignment allows the belt to remain centered and
ensures smooth operation. Realigning the belt takes a few
simple adjustments. If you are unsure about this procedure,
call Precor Customer Support. Refer to Obtaining Service.
CAUTION: Special care must be taken when aligning the
running belt. Turn Off the treadmill while adjusting or
working near the rear roller. Remove any loose clothing
and tie back your hair. Be very careful to keep your fingers
and any other object clear of the belt and rollers,
especially in front of the roller and behind the deck. The
treadmill will not stop immediately if an object becomes
caught in the belt or rollers.
1. The treadmill has adjustable rear feet. Make sure that the
running surface is level. If the treadmill is placed on an
uneven surface, adjusting the rear feet can help, but will
not compensate for extremely uneven surfaces.
2. Turn the unit On.
3. Stand beside the treadmill and press QUICKSTART.
Owner’s Manual: Maintenance
71
4. If needed, enter the safety code by pressing the following
number keys in sequence: 1, 2, 3, 4.
The running belt starts automatically after a 3-second
countdown appears on the display.
5. Press the SPEED up arrow key until the display shows a
speed of 3 mph (5 kph).
CAUTION: If you hear any chafing or the running belt
appears to be getting damaged, stop the running belt
immediately by pressing the red STOP button.
Contact Precor Customer Support.
Adjusting the Running Belt
If you are unsure about adjusting the running belt, call Precor
Customer Support. Refer to Obtaining Service.
CAUTION: For your safety, use the power switch to turn Off
the treadmill before making any adjustments. Do not
adjust the running belt when someone is standing on the
unit.
1. Locate the right belt adjustment bolt in the rear end
cap of the treadmill. Refer to Diagram 18.
6. Walk around to the rear of the unit and observe the belt
for a few minutes. The belt should be centered on the
running belt. If the belt drifts off center, you must make
adjustments. Refer to Adjusting the Running Belt.
Important: Failure to align the belt may cause the belt to
tear or fray, which is not covered by the Precor Limited
Warranty.
7. To stop the running belt, press the red STOP button.
8. Turn the treadmill Off.
Owner’s Manual: Maintenance
Diagram 18: Location of the adjustment bolt
To determine left and right, stand at the rear of the
treadmill and face the display. Make all belt adjustments
on the right rear corner bolt using the hex key provided.
72
• If the belt is off center to the LEFT, turn the adjusting
bolt ¼ turn counterclockwise, which moves the
running belt to the right.
• If the belt tracks off center to the RIGHT, turn the bolt
¼ turn clockwise; this moves the belt to the left.
Important: Do not turn the adjusting bolt more than ¼
turn at a time. Overtightening the bolt can damage the
treadmill.
2. Recheck the alignment of the running belt by repeating
the steps found in Checking the Alignment of the
Running Belt.
Long-Term Storage
When the treadmill is not in use for any length of time, turn it
Off. Make sure that the power cord is unplugged from its
power source and is positioned so that it will not become
damaged or interfere with people or other equipment.

QUICKSTART™
Begin Your Workout with QUICKSTART
CAUTION: Before using the treadmill, read all these
instructions. Failure to do so may result in serious injury.
To begin exercising immediately without personalizing your exercise
session, take the following steps.
• Do not allow children or those unfamiliar with its
operation, on or near this equipment.
1. Turn On the treadmill, using the power switch located beneath the
front of the unit, near the power cord.
• Before beginning any fitness program, see
your physician for a thorough physical
examination. Seek advice from your physician
to learn the target heart rate appropriate for
your fitness level.

is moving.
9.35
• If you feel pain, faintness, or
dizziness, stop exercising
immediately.
Workout Tips
Use the Safety Clip
Always attach the safety clip
to your clothing before each
workout. A tug on the lanyard
trips the safety switch inside
the display and stops the
running belt. If the safety
switch trips while you are
exercising, the treadmill retains
your workout statistics and
enters pause mode. To resume
your workout, reattach the
magnetic safety key to the
console and attach the clip to
your clothing. Enter the
password, and then
press QUICKSTART.
• Before and after a workout, gently stretch
your lower body and back to help prevent
stiffness or soreness.
• At the beginning of a workout, take several
minutes to bring your heart rate into your
target zone (shown in Diagram D on the
other side of this card).
• To display your heart rate, wear a chest
strap or use both hands to grasp the touchsensitive handrail grips.
• Incorporate a cool-down period into your
workout to help lower your heart rate and
minimize muscle stiffness and soreness.
4. Hold on to the handrail with one hand and press QUICKSTART with
the other. If needed, enter the password. Refer to your owner’s
manual.
A 3-second countdown appears, and then the running belt starts
moving. The Manual Program begins.
5. Step on to the running belt with the speed at 1 mph (1 kph), and
begin exercising.
• To increase or decrease the incline or speed, use the INCLINE or
SPEED arrow keys.
• To pause, hold onto a handrail with one hand while you press the
PAUSE/RESET key with the other.
6. To adjust the time goal, use the TIME +/- key. When the blinking
time prompt appears, use the number keypad to adjust the time.
Press OK.
Note: When you reach your time goal, you automatically enter a
cool-down period.
7. Complete the cool-down period and a workout summary, which
presents your exercise session statistics, appears. To review your
cumulative distance and average speed, press the right selection
key. The cumulative number of calories burned appears in an upper
display.
8. Remove the safety clip from your clothing and hold on to a handrail
as you step off the treadmill.
9. To prevent unauthorized use, turn the treadmill Off.
Note: To personalize your exercise experience, refer to Workout
Options in the owner’s manual.

•
Determine your level of fitness: beginner,
intermediate, or advanced.
•
Determine your immediate goal: endurance
training, cardio-conditioning, or weight loss.
If you are a beginner, start a cardio-conditioning
program to slowly adjust your body to a comfortable
level of exercise. Over a recommended 8-week
period, you will increase your endurance and strength
while improving flexibility.
If you have been exercising and feel that you have
reached an intermediate or advanced fitness level, you
probably have established goals for yourself.
For all fitness levels, plan to exercise at a comfortable
pace for 20 to 30 minutes a day. Wear a chest strap
to monitor your heart rate. Supplement your plans
with fitness workouts from the Precor web site
(www.precor.com). The Precor web site also provides
expert advice to help you reach your fitness goals.
2. Adjust the strap and fasten it around your chest.
The strap should feel snug, not restrictive
(Diagram B).
For the greatest benefits, maintain your heart rate in
either zone for 30 minutes or more at least three times
a week.
3. Make sure that the chest strap is right side up, lies
horizontally across your chest, and is centered in
the middle of your chest (Diagram C).
CAUTION: Your heart rate should never exceed
85% of your maximum aerobic heart rate or go
above your target zone (Diagram D).

When these steps are complete, you are ready to view
your heart rate!
Touch-Sensitive Handrail Grips
Several Precor products incorporate touch-sensitive
heart rate grips on the handrails. If you prefer to use
the touch-sensitive handrail grips, use both hands.
Make sure both hands are moist (not dry) when you
grasp the touch-sensitive handrail grips.
Monitor Your Heart Rate
The SmartRate and heart rate displays provide visual
cues that help you adjust your fitness routine to reach
your goals. Use these features to keep your heart rate
within the target zones.
Wear a Chest Strap
During a workout, the heart rate features appear on
the display when you wear a chest strap. To receive
an accurate reading, the chest strap needs to be in
direct contact with your skin. After you put on the
chest strap, face the display console for a minimum of
15 seconds. This allows the receiver in the console to
recognize the signal from the chest strap.
1. Carefully dampen the back of the strap with tap
water (Diagram A).
Important: Do not use deionized water. It does
not have the proper minerals and salts to conduct
electrical impulses.

SmartRate® Features
When you begin an exercise session, a blinking
segment in the SmartRate display appears if you
entered your age during the setup phase. The blinking
segment indicates the current zone of your heart rate.
The calculation used for the heart rate target zone is
your maximum aerobic heart rate:
(220 minus your age) multiplied by a percent.
For the ideal weight loss range, your heart rate should
remain between 55% and 70% of your maximum
aerobic heart rate. To improve your overall
cardiovascular and respiratory fitness level, maintain
your heart rate between 70% and 85% of your
maximum aerobic heart rate.
Diagram D
Cool Down After Your Workout
Cooling down is an important aspect of your workout
because it helps reduce muscle stiffness and
soreness by transporting excess lactic acid out of the
working muscles. Cooling down for at least three
minutes helps provide a smooth transition that allows
your heart rate to return to its normal, non-exercising
state.

Low-Impact Treadmills
Thank you for choosing Precor. For proper installation, please read this guide
thoroughly and follow the assembly instructions. If you do not assemble the
treadmill according to these guidelines, you could void the Precor Limited
Warranty.
Obtaining Service
You should not attempt to service the treadmill except for minor belt adjustments
and maintenance as described in the owner’s manual. Should you need more
information regarding customer support numbers or a list of Precor authorized
service centers, visit the Precor website at www.precor.com/cons.
Installation Requirements
Follow these installation requirements when assembling the unit:
•
Assemble the unit near the location where you plan to use it.
•
Provide ample space around the unit.
Open space around the unit allows for easier access.
•
Set up the unit on a solid, flat surface.
A smooth, flat surface under the unit helps keep it level. A level unit has fewer
malfunctions.
•
Open the box and assemble the components in the sequence presented
in this guide.
•
Obtain assistance.
Ask another capable adult for assistance during the assembly process.
•
Use your fingers or the appropriate tools to insert fasteners.
Proper alignment helps alleviate crossthreading. Do not fully wrench tighten
fasteners until instructed to do so.
Unpacking the Equipment
The treadmill is carefully tested and inspected before shipment. The unit is shipped
in one box. Ask for help from two or more people to unpack and assemble the
treadmill. If any items are missing, contact your dealer.
Important: When wrench tightening, the head of the fastener should be flush
with the product. If it is not, cross-threading has occurred. Do not attempt to
rework the assembly as more damage to the unit will occur. Contact
Customer Support. Refer to Obtaining Service.

Unwrap the cable and remove the kinks. Ask your assistant to hold
the handrail extensions while you feed the cable inside the right
upright support. Make sure the cable connector rests on the floor at
the base of the upright support.
Interior rail
CAUTION: Be aware of the handrail extensions when you are
working around the front of the unit. It is easy to bump your
head or sustain other injuries if you ignore the location of the
handrail extensions.
Have your assistant hold the handrail assembly above the upright
supports. Tip the assembly forward so the mounting brackets slide
along the interior rails inside the upright supports. Align the
mounting holes and insert six buttonhead screws (B). For easier
assembly, insert the top rear fasteners first. Then, lift the handrail
extensions and insert the bottom front fasteners. Align the top front
mounting holes and thread the two remaining fasteners. Finger
tighten.
Important: Make sure the fasteners do not pinch the cable. Cables
damaged by improper installation will not be covered by the Precor
Limited Warranty.
Pull the cable connector through the hole in the right upright
support.
Connect the display cable to its receptacle on the electronics
board. The tab on the cable connector faces the front of the
treadmill. An audible click is heard when the cable is properly
attached.
Note: Place the excess cable inside the upright support.
Tighten all mounting screws.
a. Start at the base and use the ¼-inch hex key to alternately tighten
the eight fasteners that secure the upright supports to the base
assembly. Refer to steps 2 and 3.
b. Use the ³⁄₁₆-inch hex key to wrench tighten the six screws that
secure the handrail extensions to the upright supports. Refer to
step 5.

Position the hood over the running belt so you can slide it through
the upright supports from the rear. Align the hood with its four
fasteners. Use the ³⁄₁₆-inch hex key to wrench tighten the two side
fasteners before wrench tightening the two fasteners that secure the
front of the hood.
Install the display console.

Position the display console so the half-round cutout rests on the
display support bar. Place any excess cables inside the display
console. Tip the display console up so its base aligns with the
mounting bracket on the center handrail.
CAUTION: Have your assistant hold the display console until it
is fastened to the center handrail and display support bar. If it
drops, cables will stretch or break and damage will occur to the
electronic boards. The Precor Limited Warranty does not cover
damage caused during installation.
Secure the display console to the display support bar with two
socket head screws (E). Wrench tighten using a ³⁄₁₆-inch hex key.
Once the display console is secure, your assistant can stop
supporting it.
Secure the display console to the center handrail with one socket
head screw (C) and washer (D). Wrench tighten using the ³⁄₁₆-inch
hex key.
Attach the console cover (G) by inserting the bottom two tabs.
Rotate the cover up and apply pressure so the top tab snaps into
place.
Note: If you need to remove the cover, apply pressure to the thumb
tab and rotate the cover out.
Place the two water bottle holders (J) onto their brackets and secure
each with a buttonhead screw (F). Tighten each screw with a
Phillips-head screwdriver.
Place the magnetic safety key (H) into the cutout on the display
console.

Checking the Alignment and Adjusting the Running Belt
Proper belt alignment allows the belt to remain centered and ensures smooth
operation. Realigning the belt takes a few simple adjustments. If you are unsure
about this procedure, call Precor Customer Support. Refer to Obtaining Service.
To adjust the running belt:
To check the alignment:
CAUTION: For your safety, use the power switch to turn Off the treadmill
before making any adjustments. Do not adjust the running belt when
someone is standing on the unit.
CAUTION: Special care must be taken when aligning the running belt. Turn Off
the treadmill while adjusting or working near the rear roller. Remove any
loose clothing and tie back your hair. Be very careful to keep your fingers and
any other object clear of the belt and rollers, especially in front of the roller
and behind the deck. The treadmill will not stop immediately if an object
becomes caught in the belt or rollers.
If you are unsure about adjusting the running belt, contact Precor Customer
Support. Refer to Obtaining Service.
1. Locate the right belt adjustment bolt in the rear end cap of the treadmill.
1. The treadmill has adjustable rear feet. Make sure that the running surface is
level before aligning or adjusting the running belt. Refer to step 18.
2. Connect the power plug to a dedicated, 15-amp power source and turn
the unit On.
3. Stand beside the treadmill and press QUICKSTART.
Adjustment bolt location
4. If needed, enter the password. Refer to your owner’s manual. The running belt
starts automatically after a 3-second countdown appears on the display.
To determine left and right, stand at the rear of the treadmill and face the
display. Make all belt adjustments on the right rear corner bolt using the
¼-inch hex key.
5. Press the SPEED up arrow key until the display shows a speed of 3 mph
(5 kph).
• If the belt is off center to the LEFT, turn the adjusting bolt ¼ turn
counterclockwise, which moves the running belt to the right.
CAUTION: If you hear any chafing or see that the running belt appears to
be getting damaged, stop the running belt immediately by pressing the
red STOP button. Contact Precor Customer Support.
6. Walk around to the rear of the unit and observe the belt for a few minutes. The
belt should run centered along the running bed. If the belt drifts off center, you
will need to make adjustments. Refer to the next section.
• If the belt is off center to the RIGHT, turn the bolt ¼ turn clockwise, which
moves the belt to the left.
Important: Do not turn the adjusting bolt more than ¼ turn at a time.
Overtightening the bolt can damage the treadmill.
2. Recheck the alignment of the running belt.
Important: If the belt needs alignment, make the adjustments at once. Failure
to align the belt may cause the belt to tear or fray, which is not covered by the
Precor Limited Warranty.
