IMPORTANT PRECAUTIONS
WARNING:
To reduce the risk of burns, fire, electric shock, or injury to persons, read the
following important precautions and information before operating the treadmill.
11. Failure to use a properly functioning surge
suppressor could result in damage to the control system of the treadmill. If the control system is damaged, the walking belt may change
speed, accelerate, or stop unexpectedly,
which may result in a fall and serious injury.
1. It is the responsibility of the owner to ensure
that all users of this treadmill are adequately
informed of all warnings and precautions.
2. Use the treadmill only as described in this
manual.
12. Keep the power cord and the surge suppressor away from heated surfaces.
3. Place the treadmill on a level surface, with at
least eight feet of clearance behind it and two
feet on each side. Do not place the treadmill
on any surface that blocks air openings. To
protect the floor or carpet from damage, place
a mat under the treadmill.
13. Never move the walking belt while the power
is turned off. Do not operate the treadmill if
the power cord or plug is damaged, or if the
treadmill is not working properly. (See
BEFORE YOU BEGIN on page 5 if the treadmill is not working properly.)
4. Keep the treadmill indoors, away from moisture and dust. Do not put the treadmill in a
garage or covered patio, or near water.
14. Never start the treadmill while you are standing on the walking belt. Always hold the
handrails while using the treadmill.
5. Do not operate the treadmill where aerosol
products are used or oxygen is administered.
15. The treadmill is capable of high speeds.
Adjust the speed in small increments to avoid
sudden jumps in speed.
6. Keep children under the age of 12 and pets
away from the treadmill at all times.
7. The treadmill should not be used by persons
weighing more than 350 pounds. Never allow
more than one person on the treadmill at a time.
16. The pulse sensor is not a medical device.
Various factors, including the user's movement, may affect the accuracy of heart rate
readings. The pulse sensor is intended only
as an exercise aid in determining heart rate
trends in general.
8. Wear appropriate exercise clothes when
using the treadmill. Do not wear loose clothes
that could become caught in the treadmill.
Athletic support clothes are recommended
for both men and women. Always wear athletic shoes. Never use the treadmill with bare
feet, wearing only stockings, or in sandals.
17. Never leave the treadmill unattended while it
is running. Always remove the key, unplug

sure that the storage latch is fully closed.
3
20. When using iFIT.com CDs and videos, an
electronic “chirping” sound will alert you
when the speed and/or incline of the treadmill
is about to change. Always listen for the
“chirp” and be prepared for speed and/or incline changes. In some instances, the speed
and/or incline may change before the personal trainer describes the change.
23. Inspect and properly tighten all parts of the
treadmill every three months.
24. Never drop or insert any object into any opening.
25.
DANGER: Always unplug the power
cord immediately after use, before cleaning
the treadmill, and before performing the maintenance and adjustment procedures described in this manual. Never remove the
motor hood unless instructed to do so by an

TREADMILL OPERATION
THE PRE-LUBRICATED WALKING BELT
tric 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.
Important: The treadmill is not compatible with
GFCI-equipped outlets.
Your treadmill features a walking belt coated with highperformance lubricant. IMPORTANT: Never apply silicone spray or other substances to the walking
belt or the walking platform. Such substances will
deteriorate the walking belt and cause excessive
wear.
HOW TO PLUG IN THE POWER CORD
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 below. 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.
DANGER:
Improper connection
of the equipment-grounding conductor can
result in an increased risk of electric 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.

Your treadmill, like any other type of sophisticated
electronic equipment, can be seriously damaged by
sudden voltage changes in your home’s power.
Voltage surges, spikes, and noise interference can
result from weather conditions or from other appliances
being turned on or off. To decrease the possibility of
your treadmill being damaged, always use a surge
suppressor with your treadmill (see drawing 1 at
the right). To purchase a surge suppressor, see
your local EPIC dealer or call 1-866-997-6999 and
order part number 146148, or see your local electronics store.

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. There must be a monitoring light on the surge suppressor to indicate
whether it is functioning properly. Failure to use a
properly functioning surge suppressor could result
in damage to the control system of the treadmill. If
the control system is damaged, the walking belt
may change speed, accelerate, or stop unexpectedly, which may result in a fall and serious injury.

The temporary adapter should be used only until a
properly grounded outlet (drawing 1) can be installed
by a qualified electrician.
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

FEATURES OF THE CONSOLE
The treadmill console offers an impressive array of
features designed to help you get the most from your
workouts.
When the manual mode of the console is selected, the
speed and incline of the treadmill can be changed with
the touch of a button. As you exercise, the console will
display continuous exercise feedback. You can even
measure your heart rate using the handgrip pulse sensor or the optional chest pulse sensor (see page 24).
In addition, the console offers 6 preset programs. Each
program automatically controls the speed and incline of
the treadmill as it guides you through an effective workout. You can even create custom workout programs
and store them in memory for future use.
Two heart rate programs are also offered. Each program automatically adjusts the speed and incline of the
treadmill to keep your heart rate near a target heart rate
while you exercise. Note: The heart rate programs require the use of the optional chest pulse sensor.
Clip
The console also features iFIT.com interactive technology. Having iFIT.com technology is like having a personal trainer in your home. Using the included audio
cable, you can connect the treadmill to your home
stereo, portable stereo, computer, or VCR and play
special iFIT.com CD and video programs (iFIT.com
CDs and videocassettes are available separately).
iFIT.com CD and video programs automatically control
the speed and incline of the treadmill as a personal
trainer guides you through every step of your workout.
High-energy music provides added motivation. To purchase iFIT.com CDs or videocassettes, call tollfree 1-866-997-6999.
With the treadmill connected to your computer, you
can also go to our Web site at www.iFIT.com and access programs directly from the internet. See
www.iFIT.com for more information.
To use the manual mode of the console, follow the
steps beginning on page 11. To use a preset program,

will be shown. For the most accurate heart rate
reading, continue to hold the contacts for
about 15 seconds.
The right display will also show your heart rate
when you use the handgrip pulse sensor or the
optional chest pulse sensor. In addition, during
heart rate programs the right display will show a
heart rate bar that shows your heart rate as a percentage of your estimated maximum heart rate
(see step 3 on page 17 for an explanation of your
estimated maximum heart rate). For example, if
four to six segments of the bar appear, your heart
rate is between 60% and 70% of your estimated
maximum heart rate.

and the treadmill will automatically adjust to the
speed and incline settings for the second segment.
Note: If all of the indicators in the Current Segment
column are lit after the speed settings have moved
to the left, the speed settings may move downward
so that only the highest indicators appear in the
matrix. If some indicators in the Current Segment
column are not lit when the speed settings move to
the left again, the speed settings will move back
up.
When a preset program is selected, the left display will flash the maximum incline setting of the
program for a few seconds, and the right display
will flash the maximum speed setting. The left display will then show how long the program will last.
In addition, the matrix in the left display will show

CAUTION:
If you have heart problems, or if you are over 60 years of age and
have been inactive, do not use the heart rate
programs. If you are taking medication regularly, consult your physician to find whether
the medication will affect your exercise heart
rate.
Follow the steps below to use a heart rate program.
Note: You must wear the optional chest pulse sensor (see page 24) to use a heart rate program. While
using the chest pulse sensor, do not use the handgrip pulse sensor.

beside the Enter button to adjust the target heart
rate setting. When the desired setting is shown,
press the Enter button.
During the 85% Max program, your heart rate will
reach approximately 85% of your estimated maximum heart rate. During the Self Select program,
your heart rate will remain near a level that you
select. Note: Your maximum heart rate is estimated by subtracting your age from 220. For example, if you are 30 years old, your estimated
maximum heart rate is 190 beats per minute (220
– 30 = 190).

Press the Start button or the Speed + button to
start the program.
The program will continue until the last segment
ends. The walking belt will then slow to a stop.
A moment after the button is pressed, the treadmill will automatically adjust to the first speed and
incline settings of the program. Hold the handrails
and begin walking.
If the speed or incline setting is too high or too low
at any time during the program, you can adjust the
setting with the Speed or Incline buttons. However,
each time the console compares your heart rate to
the target heart rate, the speed and/or incline of
the treadmill may automatically change to bring
your heart rate closer to the target heart rate.
During heart rate programs, the matrix in the
left display will show a
heart beat symbol.
Each time a heart beat
is detected, a peak will
appear.
If your pulse is not detected during the program,
the letters “PLS” will flash in the right display and
the speed and incline of the treadmill may automatically decrease.
To stop the program at any time, press the Stop
button. Heart rate programs cannot be stopped
temporarily and then restarted. To use a heart rate
program again, reselect the program and start it at
the beginning.
Each heart rate program is divided into several time
segments of different lengths. One target heart rate
is programmed for each segment. Note: If the Self
Select program is selected, the same target heart
rate is programmed for all segments.
During each segment, the console will compare
your heart rate to the target heart rate. If your
heart rate is too far below or above the target
heart rate, the speed of the walking belt will automatically increase or decrease to bring your heart
rate closer to the target heart rate. If the speed
reaches the maximum speed setting of the program (see step 5 on page 17) and your heart rate
is too far below the current target heart rate, the
incline of the treadmill will also increase to bring
your heart rate closer to the target heart rate.

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 included 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 the edges of
the walking belt 3 to 4 inches off 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 is off-center or slips when walked on
SOLUTION: a. If the walking belt is off-center, first remove the key
and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. If the walking
belt has shifted to the left, use the allen wrench to
turn the left rear roller bolt clockwise 1/2 of a turn; if
the walking belt has shifted to the right, turn the
bolt counterclockwise 1/2 of a turn. 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 slips when walked on, first remove
the key and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. Using
the allen wrench, turn both rear roller 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 3 to 4 inches off the walking platform. Be
careful to keep the walking belt centered. Plug in the
power cord, insert the key, and walk on the treadmill
for a few minutes. Repeat until the walking belt is
properly tightened.

EXERCISE GUIDELINES
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 preexisting health problems.
The pulse sensor is not a medical device.
Various factors, including the user's movement, may affect the accuracy of heart rate
readings. The pulse sensor is intended only
as an exercise aid in determining heart rate
trends in general.
The following guidelines will help you to plan your exercise program. For more detailed exercise information, obtain a reputable book or consult your physician.
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.
To find the proper heart rate for you, first find your age
near the bottom of the chart (ages are rounded off to
the nearest ten years). Next, find the three numbers
above your age. The three numbers define your “training zone.” The lower two numbers are recommended
heart rates for fat burning; the highest number is the
recommended heart rate for aerobic exercise.
To measure your heart rate during exercise, use the
handgrip pulse sensor.
Fat Burning
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 en-
ergy. 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 or incline of the treadmill until your heart rate is near the lowest number in
your training zone.
For maximum fat burning, adjust the speed or incline
of the treadmill until your heart rate is near the middle
number in your training zone.
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 or incline of the treadmill until your
heart rate is near the highest number in your training
zone.
WORKOUT GUIDELINES
Each workout should include the following three parts:
A Warm-up—Start each workout with 5 to 10 minutes
of stretching and light exercise. A proper warm-up increases your body temperature, heart rate and circulation in preparation for exercise.
Training Zone Exercise—After warming up, increase
the intensity of your exercise until your pulse is in your
training zone for 20 to 60 minutes. (During the first few
weeks of your exercise program, do not keep your
pulse in your training zone for longer than 20 minutes.)
Breathe regularly and deeply as you exercise—never
hold your breath.
A Cool-down—Finish each workout with 5 to 10 minutes of stretching to cool down. This will increase the
flexibility of your muscles and will help prevent post-exercise problems.
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. The key
to success is to make exercise a regular and enjoyable
part of your everyday life.
29
SUGGESTED STRETCHES
The correct form for several basic stretches is shown at the right. Move slowly as you stretch—never bounce.
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.
1
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.
2
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.
3
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
each leg. 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.
