INTRODUCTION
Congratulations and thank you for choosing PaceMaster – your partner in achieving your fitness goals and mastering your well-being.
PaceMaster’s advanced digital technology allows your treadmill to process information instantly, anticipating and adjusting to meet your
needs. Think of it as your own personal trainer.
PaceMaster’s superior components and US manufacture ensure we produce treadmills of the highest quality while also offering excellent
value for your dollar. PaceMaster treadmills have consistently received praise from a wide range of nationally recognized publications.
To get the most from your PaceMaster, please read this owner’s manual carefully before starting to use the treadmill. The manual contains
important information about the assembly, operation and maintenance of the machine.
Please ensure you read and fully understand all safety information.
DANGER,
CAUTION, or
WARNING indicates
important safety warnings throughout the manual. Failure to read and understand these warnings may result in personal injury or damage
to your treadmill.
Tip indicates a useful suggestion when installing, maintaining or using your treadmill.
Your PaceMaster treadmill is capable of varying your workout by changing speed, incline and time. It can also measure the effect of your
workout in a number of different ways. For example “Aerobic Points” (see page 45) is a well tested method to set workout goals based on a
desired level of overall fitness. Your PaceMaster treadmill can automatically calculate Aerobic Points for you. In this way your treadmill acts
like your own personal trainer.
Please take the time to familiarize yourself with the range of functions available. This will help you work with your PaceMaster treadmill for
maximum efficiency to achieve your fitness goals and master your well-being.
We wish you an enjoyable and rewarding partnership with your PaceMaster treadmill.

Grounding Instructions
DANGER: This product must be properly grounded. If it should malfunction or
become inoperable, 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. The plug must be plugged into
an appropriate outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local
codes and ordinances. See example to the right.
WARNING: Improper connection of the equipment grounding-conductor can result in a risk of electrical 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. This product is rated for more than 15
amperes and is for use on a circuit having a nominal rating of 120 volts. It is factory equipped with a specific electric cord and plug to
permit connection to a proper electric circuit. Make sure that the product is connected to an outlet having the same configuration as the
plug. No adapter should be used with this product. Attempting to bypass it with an adapter or in any way defeating its purpose can
result in a serious shock hazard.
As a safety precaution, unplug the treadmill during electrical storms or if the treadmill will not be in use for periods greater than one week.
CAUTION: If you need to use an extension cord it must be a 14 gauge, three wire cord, no longer than 12 feet.

buttons to set your weight and the Speed
buttons to set your

WARM UP AND COOL DOWN
By warming up prior to beginning the aerobic phase of your workout, you accomplish 2 goals; you stretch and warm up the muscles of the
back and extremities and create a slight acceleration of the heart rate so that the body can move gradually into the higher heart rate of the
aerobic phase. The aerobic phase should be followed by a minimum 5-minute cool down in which you keep moving at a slower pace. This
allows your heart rate to gradually decline and your body to gently adjust to the end of a workout instead of abruptly stopping. The cool
down phase also allows blood to be pumped from the lower extremities back to the central circulatory system. Simply put, the function of
warming up and cooling down is to ease you from a resting state into an active state and back to a resting state.
The treadmill’s computer, based on your main exercise starting and finishing speeds respectively, automatically calculates warm up and
cool down speeds.
When in the warm up mode, the TIMER display window counts down from 5 minutes and the Warm Up indicator light will blink. When in
the Cool Down mode, the TIMER display window counts down from 5 minutes and the Cool Down indicator light will blink.
To add warm up and/or cool down to a TIMED workout press the Warm Up / Cool Down button. The indicator light will blink, indicating that
the desired mode has been added to your workout. You will also notice that the workout time increases by 5 minutes for each addition.
To shorten the warm up mode, press the Warm Up / Cool Down button once. Warm up will be ended and you will advance into the main
exercise. To shorten the main exercise, press the Warm Up / Cool Down button and you will automatically begin the cool down phase. To
end the cool down, press STOP and your session will come to a close.
A cool down phase can be added to any workout (even if it wasn’t chosen prior to beginning the workout) by pressing the Warm Up / Cool
Down button.
Now you are ready to choose your workout mode. Whether it is Quick Start, Timed Workout (Manual), or one of the four Variable Intensity
Workouts, the following pages give you step-by-step instructions on how to use each workout.

CARDIO PROGRAMS
TRAIN LESS AND BENEFIT MORE FROM YOUR WORKOUTS
To maximize the benefits from your workouts, you must maintain a sufficiently high heart rate. Target heart rate training takes the
guesswork out of exercising. It provides you with the means to train within safe and effective ranges, all the while maximizing your
exercise time and effort.
The PaceMaster Platinum Pro VR has integrated heart rate control programs, which act as your personal trainer. You set your target
based on your individual fitness goal (weight management or cardiovascular improvement), the time and maximum speed and incline
parameters and the treadmill does the rest.
TIP: Based on the age entered, your PaceMaster treadmill automatically calculates your theoretical maximum heart rate and the Heart
Rate Zone bar indicates which portion of your heart rate training zone (fat burn or aerobic) you are currently training. The fat burn zone is
between 55% and 69% of your theoretical maximum heart rate. The aerobic zone is between 70% and 85% of your theoretical maximum
heart rate.
The PaceMaster Platinum Pro VR uses the Runners World standard formula to calculate your theoretical maximum heart rate. The
formula uses ½ your age subtracted from 205. For example, if you are 40 years old, your theoretical maximum is 185 beats per minute
(bpm). When your heart rate is between 102 and 128 bpm, you are training in the fat burn zone for weight management. When your heart
rate is between 130 to 157 bpm, you are training in the aerobic training zone for cardiovascular improvement. The safest and most
recommended method of determining your maximum heart rate is to have a physician administer a stress test.
THE WIRELESS CHEST STRAP TRANSMITTER
The PaceMaster Platinum Pro VR treadmill comes equipped
with a WIRELESS CHEST STRAP TRANSMITTER, which, when
worn, measures pulse (number of heart beats per minute) and
relays the information by way of an electro-magnetic field to a
receiver built into the treadmill’s computer. This system is
extremely accurate to within one beat per minute.
This chest strap must be worn to activate the HeartSmart™ Pulse
Monitoring. The Heart Rate Control workouts are non-operational
unless the chest strap is worn.
PUTTING ON THE CHEST STRAP
To properly wear your chest strap, adjust the strap to fit snugly
and comfortably around your chest with the electrodes (the
grooved areas) directly over your sternum, as pictured to the right.
For best results, the strap should be worn against skin. Moisture
is necessary for the transmitter to function properly. Usually,
perspiration is sufficient, but you may need to moisten the electrodes with water.
CARDIO WORKOUTS
Your PaceMaster Platinum Pro VR treadmill offers the following Heart Rate Control workouts:
C1 - Heart Rate Monitor: Displays your heart rate and the training zone during workouts.
C2 - Target HRC: Choose a heart rate training zone between 55% and 85% of your theoretical maximum.
C3 - Fat Burn HRC: Choose one of five levels in the fat burn training zone, between 55% and 69% of your theoretical maximum.
C4 - Cardio HRC: Choose one of five levels in the aerobic training zone, between 70% and 85% of your theoretical maximum.
C5 - Interval HRC: The treadmill automatically alternates between 70% and 85% of your theoretical maximum.
NOTE: The PAUSE feature will not operate in ANY heart rate control program to avoid any undue cardiovascular stress.

NOTE: The treadmill must be receiving a heart rate signal to proceed. If no heart rate signal is being received, all displays go blank
with the exception of the graphic display of the heart, and four dashes in the LEFT DATA DISPLAY window. Review “Putting on the chest
strap” instructions on page 30.
Step Seven:
The default max incline is 10.0% and the default max speed is 4.0 mph will appear in their corresponding windows and a target heart rate
will appear in the LEFT DATA DISPLAY window. Set the desired maximum speed using the SPEED buttons and the desired maximum
incline by pressing the INCLINE buttons. These parameters should be no faster or incline no higher than you feel comfortable
reaching. As a safety feature, your PaceMaster treadmill will NEVER exceed the speed and incline parameters you have set, even if they
are not sufficient to get you to your target heart rate. NOTE: The treadmill will take you to your target based on your heart rate, not
necessarily the speed and incline you entered. You will not reach the entered maximum speed and incline if your heart rate reaches the
target at a lower speed and/or incline. Speed and incline changes can be made at any time during your workout.
Step Eight:
Set the desired target Heart Rate by pressing
buttons.
• In C2 (Target HRC), you can choose a target heart rate from 55% to 85% of your theoretical maximum.
• In C3 (Fat Burn HRC), you can choose one of the five target heart rate zones optimal for weight management; from 55% to 69%
of your theoretical maximum.
• In C4 (Cardio HRC), you can choose one of the five target heart rate zones optimal for aerobic training, from 70% to 85% of your
theoretical maximum.

FITNESS EVALUATOR
Your PaceMaster Platinum Pro VR Treadmill offers cardio program C6 a Fitness Evaluation. Thru the administration of a fitness test your
treadmill can provide an estimation of your aerobic condition as well as analyzing the progress you make with training. The test is suitable
for all fitness levels and provides a general classification of your aerobic condition based upon predicted VO2 max. This Fitness
Evaluation consists of a 3 minute warm up and then a one mile walk/run/jog. Your heart rate upon the completion of one mile is recorded
and factored along with age, gender and your one mile time (exclusive of warm up and cool down) to estimate your VO2 max. This is
compared with VO2 max tables for the general public to arrive at a numerical score representing your estimated aerobic condition. The
Fitness Evaluator test should be performed prior to your workout.
Step One:
Put on the chest strap transmitter as pictured on page 30.
Step Two:
Stand on the running belt and attach the garment clip on the end of the magnetic safety key to your clothing. Insert the safety key into its
recess on the control panel.

on page 30.
Step Five:
Set your desired SPEED using the Speed
buttons. Choose a speed that will allow you to complete one mile at an easy,
steady pace. For test purposes men should choose a speed lower than 7.5 mph (8 minute mile) and women should choose a speed
lower than 6.7 mph (9 minute mile). Speed can be adjusted to these maximums during the test.
NOTE: All other buttons are non functional in this program.
Step Six:
Press the
button to begin the test. A 3-minute warm up will begin and upon the completion of the warm up the one mile test will
start. Upon the completion of the one mile test the cool down cycle automatically begins. Your Fitness Evaluation score will appear in the
RIGHT DATA DISPLAY window.
NOTE: Your Fitness Evaluation score can be classified into general fitness categories according to the following table:
Very Poor
Poor
Fair
Good
Excellent
Superior
Below 55
56-65
66-75
76-85
86-95
96-100
Analysis of the result is by comparing it with the result of previous tests. It is expected that, with appropriate training between each test,
the analysis would indicate improvement.
NOTE: When using Fitness Evaluator all totals (distance, calories, and Aerobic points) are cumulative in the warm-up phase. All totals
except distance are cumulative in the main workout phase, distance counts down. All totals (distance, calories, and Aerobic points) are

PERSONAL TRAINER PROGRAMS
The Platinum Pro VR has six PERSONAL TRAINER workouts; three Interval courses and three Custom programs. The Hill, Speed and
Mixed Interval programs, each with nine levels, were designed to improve your aerobic capacity by varying the intensity, enabling you to
exercise harder, longer and burn more calories. The three CUSTOM programs give you the option to either create a personal program in
advance or to create a personal program as you workout.
During your workout, you will be alerted to any speed and/or incline changes in the program with a series of visual and audible prompts.
The current speed and or incline will flash to indicate a change. The new speed and/or incline will then be displayed.
To be certain you are receiving the maximum benefit from your workout, wear your wireless chest strap transmitter and activate the
HeartSmart™ Pulse Monitoring System. The heart rate training zone in which you are currently exercising will be displayed on the Heart
Rate Zone bar in the PROFILE display window. For details, refer to the HEARTSMART™ PULSE MONITORING SYSTEM section in this

VIRTUAL REALITY PROGRAMS
VR Courses begin a new era in treadmill exercise technology. Until the introduction of VR Courses all treadmills pre-programmed
workouts were based upon time. VR Courses are based upon distance thereby duplicating the outdoor walk/jog/run experience. They are
in essence virtual reality workouts. There are two distinct and separate operating modes for VR Courses.
Manual Mode:
The user sets the speed that they desire and begins the course. In standard time based courses when you encounter course
changes (hills, mountains, valleys, etc.) the user will take the same amount of time to complete the course profile regardless of the user’s
speed. VR Courses add effect to speed by increasing or decreasing the amount of time (depending on speed) necessary to complete the
profile. For example: If you are walking at 3 mph and encounter a hill it may take 30 seconds to complete the hill (ascend & descend). On
time based courses it will take that same 30 seconds to complete the hill no matter what speed you are exercising at. With VR Courses
the hill will be shortened or lengthened depending upon your speed. That same hill that took 30 seconds to complete at 3 mph will take
only 15 seconds to complete at 6 mph. This method of exercising mimics the way one exercises outdoors.
Constant Effort Compensation Mode:
VR Courses provide challenging workout profiles that will automatically adjust the workout speed to provide the user with
constant exercise intensity when encountering course changes (hills, valleys, mountains, etc). For example: While running at 6 mph the
user encounters a hill. The PaceMaster Platinum Pro VR will automatically slow your speed in order to keep you in the same calorie burn
per minute range you were in prior to encountering the hill. This creates constant workout intensity while varying the muscle groups being
used (through the integration of hills, mountains, valleys, etc.) without increasing the workout intensity to extreme levels. It’s like cruise
control for your workouts based upon constant calorie burn rates per minute. VR Courses when used in the Constant Effort Compensation
Mode will provide frequent and challenging speed and incline adjustments helping to keep the user interested and involved with their
workout thereby eliminating boredom from your daily exercise regime.
Using V1, V2, V3, V4, V5 and V6 in Manual Mode:
Step One:
Stand on the running belt and attach the garment clip on the end of the magnetic safety key to your clothing. Insert the safety key into it’s
recess on the control panel.
TIP: If you have selected your user ID, go to Step Three.
Step Two:
Press the Incline
buttons to set your weight and the Speed
buttons to set your age, then press the
button.
Step Three:
In the Profile window press the
button to select V1 Lombard Street, V2 Steeple Chase, V3 Appalachian Trail, V4 Summit
Climb, V5 Coastal Path, or V6 Tahoe Rim the program number (V1, V2, V3, V4, V5, OR V6) will be displayed in the Right Data Display
window. The default workout distance will be displayed in the Left Data Display window while the default speed will be displayed in the
Speed window. The Incline display window will display the maximum elevation of the chosen program noted by the illumination of the Max
indicator LED light in the upper right of the Incline display. The Profile will display a graphic representation of the workout intensity. The
Timer window displays the amount of time needed to complete the program at the displayed Speed.
TIP: There is no automatic Warm Up and Cool Down integrated into the VR Courses. In order to add an automatic Warm Up and / or
Cool Down to the VR Course workouts press the Warm Up / Cool Down button until the appropriate Warm Up and / or Cool Down indicator
LED lights illuminate in the Profile display window.

level of intensity displayed noted by the illumination of the Max indicator LED light in the upper right of the Incline display. Similarly, the
Speed display window will display the maximum speed of the chosen program for the level of intensity displayed noted by the illumination
of the Max indicator LED light. The Left Data Display window will reflect the total distance of the course while the Timer display window
notes the time needed to complete the course at that level.

EXCLUSIVE PACEMASTER FEATURES
Exercise Preview
You can see exactly what you will accomplish prior to beginning a Timed Workout (Manual), or Variable Intensity Workout. An EXERCISE
PREVIEW predicts the total distance, caloric expenditure and Aerobic Points to be earned based on the time, incline and speed you chose.
After you have selected a Variable Intensity Workout, or have set the speed, time and incline parameters for a Timed Workout (Manual),
the predicted calories, and Aerobic points, will be displayed in the RIGHT DATA DISPLAY window. Press the SELECT button to change
the displayed result. Note that any adjustments to speed, time and incline will change those figures.
Aerobic Points
One of the main reasons people stop exercising is because they don’t see the physical changes they expected. Results, however, can
only be realized when you are training properly. For this reason, the Aerobic Point System has been incorporated into the design of
PaceMaster treadmills since 1968.
The Aerobic Point System was developed by Dr. Kenneth Cooper, the Father of Aerobics and renowned founder of The Cooper Aerobics
Center in Dallas, TX, to measure the aerobic benefit of the workout. Dr. Cooper’s formula compares the energy costs of aerobic activity
from the mathematical relationships between the oxygen expenditures assigned to each exercise at a given intensity and duration. This
formula is built into the PaceMaster computer to automatically calculate the number of AEROBIC POINTS you earn for each workout
Dr. Cooper states in his book, The Aerobics Program For Total Well Being; “The main idea of this system is that, in order to stay in good
shape and move toward a goal of total well-being, a person must earn a certain number of points each week by doing a certain amount of
aerobic exercise.” His research has determined that a man should work up to a minimum of 32 points per week and a woman should
work up to a minimum of 27 points per week. The number of weekly points you earn correlates with your level of fitness. The fitness
categories are:
Classification
Very Poor
Poor
Fair
Good
Excellent
Superior
Average Points per Week
Men
Less than 10
10-20
21-31
32-50
51-74
75+
Women
Less than 8
8-15
16-26
27-40
41-64
65+
If you have not been on a regular exercise program, it is highly recommended that you gradually work up to your desired fitness category
and then develop a maintenance program.
You can see the number of AEROBIC POINTS you will earn prior to beginning your workout by pressing the SELECT button until Aerobic
Points indicator is illuminated. To design a workout based on the number of AEROBIC POINTS you want to earn, follow the instructions
below for PERSONAL ELECTRONIC TRAINER.
Personal Electronic Trainer
Another feature exclusive to PaceMaster treadmills is the PERSONAL ELECTRONIC TRAINER. You can create a workout based on the
number of Aerobic Points you want to earn or the number of calories you want to burn.
To create a workout based on Aerobic Points:

CARE & MAINTENANCE
The following section describes necessary maintenance for your PaceMaster treadmill. This maintenance is the responsibility of the
purchaser and is not covered under our warranty. Failure to perform this necessary maintenance could result in damage to your treadmill.
CAUTION: Unplug your treadmill before attempting any cleaning or maintenance.
Deck and Tread Belt Cleaning
The running belt on your PaceMaster rides on a low friction deck. Proper operation will be jeopardized if any water, dirt, solvents, fluids or
abrasive materials come between the tread belt and the deck. For this reason, extra care must be used in keeping the belt clean. Use a
soft, damp cloth to remove dust, dirt and other substances from the area between the belt and the side of the machine. Do not clean the
tread belt by turning on the treadmill.
Lubrication
The motor and roller bearings are sealed for maintenance free operation and require no lubrication. The deck and tread belt are lubricated
at the factory.
The side rails are made of steel. By occasionally applying a coat of automotive wax to them will help prevent rusting.
Centering the Tread Belt
To improve belt life, the belt should be reasonably centered. Run the treadmill at 2.5 mph for 3 minutes to allow the belt to settle in place.
If the belt is NOT reasonably centered (no closer than 1/8” to the left or right deck shroud) follow the steps listed below.
WARNING: Never make adjustments while the belt is moving.
TIP: Unnecessary adjustments can result in premature belt wear.
CAUTION: Unplug your treadmill before attempting any cleaning or maintenance.
Step One: (figure 6)
Unplug the treadmill from the wall outlet
Keep Treadbelt
Reasonably Centered
If the belt is drifting to the left, using a 3/16” Hex wrench, turn the left-hand
adjustment bolt (1) a quarter turn clockwise and the right-hand adjustment
bolt (2) a quarter turn counter-clockwise.
If the belt is drifting to the right, using a 3/16” Hex wrench, turn the right-hand
adjustment bolt (2) a quarter turn clockwise and the left-hand adjustment
bolt (1) a quarter turn counter-clockwise.
Step Two:
Plug the treadmill in to the outlet and run the treadmill at 2.5 mph for 3 minutes
to allow the belt to settle in place. If the belt is NOT reasonably centered repeat
Step One.
Step Three:
If the belt remains reasonably centered increase the speed to 6.0 mph
and run the treadmill for 5 minutes. If the belt remains reasonably centered you have successfully
centered your belt, if not start at Step One.

Display. Check the both wiring connections between the elevation motor and the power supply. Also, check the wiring harness for cuts or
visual damage.
If “Err” appears in the incline display after attempting an elevation change, the control panel did not see elevation movement. Touch the
incline Up or Down button and an “E 217” will appear in the Data Window. Check the wiring connection between the elevation motor and
the power supply. Check the elevation fuse to see if it has blown. If the fuse has blown, replace fuse.
Hesitation of the Tread belt
Hesitation of the tread belt usually indicates slippage of either the tread belt (the belt you walk on) or the drive belt (the belt connecting the
drive roller to the motor). To determine which of these belts is slipping, first adjust the drive belt tension and test to see if the slippage
stops. If the hesitation is not corrected than the tread belt tension needs adjustment.
CAUTION: Unplug your treadmill before attempting any cleaning or maintenance.
Drive Belt Tension Adjustment
Step One:
Use a Phillips head screwdriver to remove the 2 screws that hold the front of the
motor cover in place and remove the motor cover.
1
Step Two: (figure 7)
Locate the four motor mount screws (item 1 in fig 7) as shown in the diagram
and loosen them each two turns each using the 3/16" Hex wrench.
Figure 7
Step Three: (figure 8)
Locate the drive belt adjustment screw (item 2 in fig 8) in the lower
front end of the treadmill. Insert the Hex wrench into the drive belt
adjustment screw and turn the screw 1/2 turn clockwise.
Step Four: (figure 7)
Complete the adjustment by tightening the four motor mount
screws (item 1 in fig 7).
Step Five:
Walk on the treadmill to determine if the slippage is decreased or
eliminated.
Figure 8
Step Six:
If no improvement is observed, the hesitation may be caused by a loose tread belt - see "Tread belt tension adjustment" below. If
improvement is noticed but slippage is still present, repeat steps 2 through 5. If you tighten the drive belt adjustment screw 1 1/2 turns and
there is still hesitation (slippage) contact your authorized PaceMaster dealer. Tightening the drive belt adjustment screw more than 1 1/2
turns can result in bearing damage to the motor and/or drive roller.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q. Why is time displayed as a negative number (i.e. – 1:15)?
A. The treadmill’s computer displays time in minutes and seconds (MM:SS) for workout times less than 1 Hour, and in hours and
minutes (– H:MM) for workout times 1 hour or greater. – 1:15 represents one hour and 15 minutes.
Q. Why can’t I change the speed in warm up or cool down?
A. Warm up and cool down speeds are based on parameters recommended by the American College of Sports Medicine and
cannot be overridden. To avoid undue cardiovascular stress, warm up begins at a lower percentage of the workout’s starting
speed and gradually takes you to the workouts starting speed. Conversely, cool down gradually reduces speed based on a
percentage of the workouts ending speed.
Q. How do I find out the total hours and miles on my treadmill?
A. Insert the magnetic safety key, when the “set weight” indicator begins to flash, press and hold the WORKOUT INTENSITY
LEVEL + button the total time and mileage will appear in their respective windows and the power supply software version will
appear in the INCLINE
Q. Can I eliminate warm up and/or cool down from a Variable Intensity Workout?
A. Yes. If you wish to remove the warm up and/or cool down phases prior to starting your workout, press the WARM UP/COOL
DOWN button until the corresponding indicator light is no longer illuminated. While in the warm up mode, press the Warm Up /
Cool Down button and you will advance into the main phase of your workout. While in the main workout mode press the Warm
Up / Cool Down button to advance to the cool down
Q. Why is dust accumulating behind and/or underneath my treadmill?
A. This is normal. The dust is a combination of the PVC belt material and the phenolic deck surface as it wears.
