WOODWAY History
WOODWAY’s history begins in Germany in 1974. Willi Schoenberger, a technical
director in charge of planning a fitness center, noticed that the most important piece of
equipment, the treadmill, didn’t meet the most important requirements: a mechanically
sound machine that is designed to meet human needs.
He envisioned a comfortable surface that didn’t interfere with the natural biomechanics
of running or walking. Also, he wanted a transportation system which eliminated the
friction associated with conventional (conveyor belt) treadmills. After intensive research,
and trial and error (and in cooperation with the Deutsche Sporthochschule in Cologne,
Germany), Willi developed and patented a very unique and revolutionary treadmill
design.
In 1975, WOODWAY GmbH was founded in Weil am Rhein, Germany. The name
"WOODWAY" is derived from the German "Waldweg" (Wald = Wood and Weg = Way) –
the feel of running on a soft pine needle covered path in the forest.
In 1983, a manufacturing license was awarded to Sakai Medical, for the use of
WOODWAY technology in the Japanese marketplace.
In 1988, a U.S. license was granted to a small, well-established manufacturing company
in Waukesha, Wisconsin. WOODWAY USA was formed when the U.S. incarnation of
the WOODWAY was developed and completed in 1990. WOODWAY USA is proud to
be the primary manufacturer of WOODWAY Treadmills worldwide, exporting treadmills
for international distribution, in addition to serving our domestic customers and clients.
Today, WOODWAY’s design and manufacturing facilities in the United States, Germany
and Japan make WOODWAY the largest specialized treadmill manufacturer in the
world. Constant enhancements in quality, design and function are shared and
implemented by all three WOODWAY manufacturers.
As WOODWAY moves forward, attention to product quality, innovation, and customer
service are at the forefront of our efforts. Along with our treadmills, other products,
services and strategic relationships are being developed so as to keep WOODWAY on
the leading edge as we meet fitness training, testing and rehabilitation needs.

Important Safety Instructions
A safety sign has been included with your treadmill. It is the responsibility of the
owner to post this sign in a visible area near the machine.
Controlled Start Speed – 1 MPH
The EcoMill is designed to control the maximum belt speed for user safety. The initial
start speed is 1 MPH to assure the user has adequate time to adjust to the nonmotorized running surface. Once acclimated, the user can then adjust the maximum
speed to their desired speed for their workout.
WOODWAY Training Technique Advisory:
To maximize the benefit and safety of your treadmill training WOODWAY recommends
all users maintain proper running form and not shuffle their feet.
When servicing any piece of fitness equipment, basic precautions must be followed.
Familiarize yourself with all warnings, instructions and procedures concerning proper
care and maintenance of a WOODWAY treadmill. Instructions are found in this service
training manual and some also appear on labels and instructions on the treadmill itself.

DANGER – To Reduce the Risk of Electrical Shock

Do not operate the heart rate monitor transmitter in conjunction with an electrical
heart pacemaker. The transmitter may cause electrical disturbances.

Do not soak the treadmill surfaces with any liquid; use a sprayer or damp cloth.

Do not place any open liquid containers on any part of the treadmill. The use of sport
bottles with closeable tops is acceptable to be used.

Do not attempt to service your treadmill yourself if you feel at risk.

Always keep the running surface clean.
CAUTION:

Consult with your physician before beginning any exercise program, especially if any
of the following pertain to you: history of heart disease, high blood pressure,
diabetes, chronic respiratory disease, elevated cholesterol, smoke cigarettes, or
experience any other chronic disease or physical impairments.

Pregnant women should consult their physician before beginning an exercise
program.

If you experience dizziness, chest pains, nausea or any other abnormal symptoms
while utilizing the treadmill, stop immediately. Consult a physician before continuing.

A qualified mechanic should perform service or repair work. It is preferable that
mechanics have successfully completed our factory-authorized service school or
equivalent.
WARNING – To reduce the risk of injury to you and to others:

THE ECOMILL IS NON-MOTORIZED – The user controls the rate of speed
including the rate at which the treadmill slows or comes to a stop. There is no motor
on the EcoMill, therefore there is not an emergency stop lanyard. The treadmill will
come to a stop on its own, it is imperative that all users familiarize themselves with
the treadmill and its features.

THE ECOMILL IS NON-MOTORIZED – The belt moves freely, always mount and
dismount the EcoMill from the rear of the treadmill. Use the handrails at all times
FORM: EM OWNERS MNUL
REV: 6/4/10

when mounting and dismounting from the rear.
Set up and operate treadmills on a solid, level surface.

Keep all loose clothing and towels away from the treadmill running surface. It is also
important that shoe laces do not extend past the bottom of the sole of the shoe.

Keep the area behind the treadmill clear and at least FOUR FEET from walls or
furniture.

Keep hands away from all moving parts.

Never leave children unsupervised around a treadmill.

Inspect the treadmill for worn or loose components prior to use. Tighten/replace any
worn or loose components prior to use.

WOODWAY treadmills are built to handle runners weighing up to 800 pounds at
speeds between 0-4 MPH and 550 pounds at speeds up to 18 MPH. A treadmill
running belt might not stop immediately if any object becomes caught in the belt or
rollers.

Care should be taken when entering and exiting the treadmill. Never enter or exit the
treadmill while the running belt is moving. Use the handlebar or handrails whenever
practical.

Wear proper athletic shoes, such as those with rubber or high-traction soles. Do not
use shoes with heels or leather soles. Make sure no stones are embedded in the
soles.

Allow several minutes to bring your heart rate into the training zone shown
elsewhere in this manual. Walk slowly after your workout to allow your body time to
cool down and your pulse rate to decrease.

The safety and integrity designed into the machine can only be maintained when the
treadmill is regularly examined for damage and repaired. It is the sole responsibility
of the user/owner or facility operator to ensure that regular maintenance is
performed. Worn or damaged components should be replaced immediately or the
treadmill removed from service until the repair is made. Only manufacturer supplied
or approved components should be used to maintain and repair the treadmill.

Things to Consider Before Starting Exercise Program
CONSULT A PROFESSIONAL FITNESS TRAINER
It is advisable for all exercise beginners to consult a professional fitness instructor or
personal trainer to develop an overall fitness evaluation/wellness program before
starting an exercise routine.
CONSULT A PHYSICIAN
If you are over 40, have a history of heart disease, are overweight, or have not been
involved in any kind of exercise program for several years, it is recommended that you
see your physician as a precaution before engaging in a vigorous exercise program.
UNDERSTAND THE IMPORTANCE OF WARMING UP AND COOLING DOWN
It is important to warm up and cool down prior to and at the end of each work out,
respectively. Always try to incorporate a series of basic leg stretches before and after
each workout. Stretching provides the necessary flexibility to prevent sore muscles and
injury during daily activities.
LEARN HOW TO TAKE YOUR PULSE PROPERLY
To select the fitness level that is most suitable to exercise, it is important to correctly
determine your heart rate or pulse. To do this, it is recommended that you use a good
quality heart rate monitor. If you do not have a heart rate monitor, you can find your
pulse by placing your fingers on the underside of your wrist or either side of your throat.
While looking at the second hand on your watch, count how many heartbeats you feel
within fifteen (15) seconds. Multiply this number by four to get your Beats Per Minute
(BPM). Your heart rate will be needed when you take the Self-Fitness Test.
KNOW YOUR MAXIMUM HEART RATE
To determine your maximum heart rate, subtract your age from 220 (general formula).
The difference is the approximation of your maximum heart rate, as used by the
American Heart Association and The American College of Sports Medicine. The only
way to determine your true maximum heart rate is to have a stress test administered by
your physician. The American Heart Association recommends that you have a stress
test done if you have any history of heart disease or if you are over the age of 40 and
beginning an exercise program.
During exercise, it is recommended that you not exceed 85% of your maximum heart
rate. Our programs are designed to keep your heart rate within your target zone. Your
target zone is an area between 60 and 75% of your maximum heart rate. Should you
find your heart rate above the 75% level, you have probably selected a fitness level that
is too high in that particular fitness program. You should either drop to a lower intensity
level in the same fitness program, or use a less stressful fitness program.

HOW OFTEN SHOULD YOU EXERCISE?
The biggest mistake made by people when starting an exercise program is that they try
to do too much too fast. Give yourself time to get into shape. Becoming re-conditioned
also takes time. Either way, it will not happen overnight. Remember: the key is
consistency and duration of exercise, not intensity. Fitness experts recommend that you
start by exercising three to four days a week within your target heart rate for at least 20
minutes per session. Your ultimate goal should be to get yourself gradually to a level of
fitness where you can comfortably keep your heart rate in the target zone for 50 to 60
minutes four to five times a week.
WEAR PROPER WALKING/JOGGING SHOES
To help avoid getting sore feet and muscles, it is suggested that you invest in a good
pair of walking/jogging shoes. It is important to purchase a comfortable pair of shoes
with good heel and arch support. Also, remember to regularly replace old or worn out
shoes with new shoes.
STAY ACTIVE
Between workouts it is suggested that you simply stay active, eat well-balanced meals,
and drink plenty of water. The combination of these activities should enhance your
chances for a future of good health.

Location Requirements
Install your treadmill on a structurally sound surface. If it is to be used above ground
level set it up near the corner of the room to ensure maximum support during highspeed use. The surface should be reasonably level to ensure minimum frame flexing.
Do not place the treadmill directly on shag or plush carpeting because of the moving
parts underneath. If the operating area is thickly carpeted, set the unit on a mat
(WOODWAY has a selection of mats available for purchase if needed; call 1-800WOODWAY for details). This will reduce the lint that can get into the treadmill and also
reduce carpet wear.
Transporting Your Treadmill
CAUTION: THIS TREADMILL IS HEAVY AND COULD CAUSE INJURY IF PROPER
LIFTING TECHNIQUES ARE NOT UTILIZED. LIFTING BARS ARE SUPPLIED WITH
THE TREADMILL TO MOVE THE TREADMILL.
Lifting bars are inserted into each bottom corner of the treadmill. Do not pull or lift on the
cosmetic covers. If a flat dolly is available, place the dolly underneath the treadmill and
push it to the desired location. If the treadmill must be disassembled, the cosmetic
covers and the handrail assembly could be removed for easier transportation.
EcoMill Set-Up
The EcoMill is designed to be mobile and comes standard with 2 wheels on the front
underside of the frame rails. To move the treadmill, carefully lift on the bar at the back of
the treadmill elevating the rear to a near 45 degree angle. At this point the front of the
unit will be resting on the wheels and the treadmill can be moved via pushing.

Belt Surface
The patented running belt is made of individual slats mounted on a continuous set of
tooth belts. The tooth belts mesh with the front pulley assembly, which meshes with the
drive pulley. This results in no belt slippage. The individual slats are comprised of two
materials: a rubber based surface and an aluminum T-shaped frame. The rubber
material, approximately 3/8 inch thick, and the aluminum T-slat makes a WOODWAY
the "softest treadmill running surface in the world". The rubber running surface greatly
reduces shock of impact and helps reduce the local extremity pain associated with longterm running. The positive belt engagement eliminates friction and heat, and therefore
increases the longevity of the running surface and treadmill itself.
The WOODWAY rubber belt surface is unlike other treadmills (which normally utilize a
cotton and nylon belt). All treadmills take time getting us to operating and using them.
With your WOODWAY, you may find, at first, that the surface has a "grip" to it you have
not experienced before. The more often you utilize your treadmill the more you will
become accustomed to the feel of it. Like all treadmills, it is important not to drag your
feet on a WOODWAY treadmill.
Transportation System
The transportation system is comprised of two bearing rail assemblies, an endless steel
wire reinforced lateral belt, and 7-inch diameter toothed roller drums. The bearing rails
support the running surface and are integral to reducing belt wear and friction.
The two endless lateral belts have many key functions: they hold the individual slats
together, transfer power to and from the motor and runner, and help keep the running
belt from tracking to the left or right. The two bearing rails consist of three main parts:
the bearing rail, individual bearings, and the bearing-supported roller guides. A smooth
section of the lateral belts roll over the bearings and roller guides.
The bearing rail supports all the bearings and roller guides and helps to distribute the
local loads throughout the treadmill. The roller guides on each side assist to reduce
tracking error and help support the running belt. The individual bearings on each side
also evenly distribute the load across the treadmill.
The toothed drums are used to eliminate any slippage. The drum assemblies have
heavy-duty pillow blocks (bearings) which also reduce friction.
This unique transportation system results in very little friction so you can simply push
the running belt under your own power!

Serial Number Placement
Each WOODWAY treadmill is assigned a serial number when built. Depending on the
year your model was built, it will have either a 7 – 8 digit alpha-numeric code, or a 9
digit numeric code. The serial number can be found on the front left section of the
treadmill frame.
The label also includes information about your particular treadmill. It lists input voltage
and current, and the options and/or features of your treadmill. Please refer to your
packing slip or invoice or contact WOODWAY USA (1
1-800-WOODWAY) to determine
the features you may have ordered, if you are in doubt, with your treadmill.
Polar ® Heart Rate Monitor
The display board is equipped to project a user’s heart rate in conjunction with the use
of a Polar® Monitor. In order for the board to correctly display a user’s heart rate, the
receiver within the display board must obtain a stable heart rate signal from the Polar ®
transmitter.
The Polar® Heart Rate System consists of three main elements: 1) the
Sensor/Transmitter, 2) the Chest Band/Strap and 3) the Monitor/Console. The receiver
of the wireless ECG system is built into the monitor/console unit of the board. While
operating under heart rate control modes, the computer monitors the exact
measurement of and control over the activity of the heart.
How to Wear the Chest Strap
The Sensor/Transmitter is worn just below the chest and at the top of the abdomen,
preferably directly on bare skin (not over clothing). The transmitter should be centered
below the pectoral muscles (breasts). Once the strap is secured, pull it away from the
chest by stretching the band, and moisten the conductive electrode strips located
underneath the snaps. If you wish to wear the band over a shirt, moisten the shirt under
the area of the electrode strip. The transmitter operates automatically while you are
wearing it. It does not operate while it is disconnected from your body. However, as
moisture may activate the transmitter, please wipe it dry after use. The chest band is
washable. After you have detached the transmitter, wash the band in warm water, using
mild soap, and rinse thoroughly in clean water. Never scrub the transmitter surfaces.
FORM: EM OWNERS MNUL
REV: 6/4/10

The Transmitter
You must be within three and a half feet of the receiver in order for the signal to
transmit. Please take note that your transmitter may fluctuate erratically if you are too
close to other Polar® equipment. Maintain at least a three-foot distance between other
Polar® units.
Note: Erratic heart rate reception may occur if the Polar® Monitor is too close in
proximity to strong sources of electromagnetic radiation, such as television sets,
personal computers, electric motors and some other types of fitness equipment. Only
one transmitter should be used inside the range of any one receiver as the receiver may
pick up several signals simultaneously causing an inaccurate readout.

1.0 MPH Start Speed
The EcoMill is designed to control the maximum belt speed for user safety. The initial
start speed is 1 MPH to assure the user has adequate time to adjust to the nonmotorized running surface. Once acclimated, the user can then adjust the maximum
speed to their desired speed for their workout.
One Way Drive Mechanism
The EcoMill’s non-motorized running surface is designed for the user to control and
actually drive or turn the belt. The innovative curved design coupled with gravity makes
this possible.
For the safety of the user, the running surface only rotates in a motion that allows for
forward running use of the machine (as opposed to reverse). This provides a stable and
nearly locked running surface for mounting and dismounting of the treadmill from the
rear or back of the unit.
THE ECOMILL SHOULD ONLY BE ENTERTED FROM THE BACK OF THE UNIT –
NEVER STEP ON THE FRONT OF THE ECOMILL UNIT
STEPPING ON THE FRONT OF THE UNIT WILL CAUSE THE BELT TO SPIN

Cleaning and Inspection
Periodic cleaning and inspection of your WOODWAY treadmill will help to lengthen the
life while helping keep it looking like new. With this preventative maintenance it will be
easier to spot problems that might not otherwise be found.
Below is a guideline of our recommended cleaning and maintenance intervals. If your
treadmill is located in a dirty environment or under heavy-duty use, cleaning and
inspection should be implemented more often.
Do not use abrasive brushes or cleaners, as they may scratch the paint and plastic
surfaces. Do not soak any surface; the sensitive electronics may be harmed.
CAUTION: Turn off treadmill battery back-up system.
Weekly:
 Clean handrail, front display panel & cosmetic covers.
 Check overall condition of the treadmill.
 Move, and vacuum underneath the treadmill.
Every Six (6) Months:
 Vacuum inside the treadmill (remove cosmetic covers.)
 Inspect all nuts and bolts. Tighten any that are loose.
 Clean running surface.
 Check drive belt – replace if shredding or teeth are missing.
Yearly:
 Grease front and rear roller bearings.
Seasonally:
 In autumn & winter remember that the dry climate in many regions of the country
will cause a greater static discharge to occur when the treadmill is used. Be sure
to spray the running surface with a staticide spray regularly to prevent static
shock to the treadmill user.

Lubrication
Bearings
Almost all of the bearings used in the treadmill are pre-lubricated and do not need to be
greased. On a yearly basis, the four (4) bearings located at the front and rear shaft will
need to be lubricated.
Running Belt
The teeth on the bottom of the running belt are pre-lubricated to aid in reducing noise.
There is no need to lubricate the teeth. If running belt is rubbing against the side of the
drive pulleys, then a small amount of grease (i.e. Molykote or equal) on the edges of the
belt slats will help reduce noise. Apply grease to the teeth on the back drive shaft to
help the belt stay aligned properly.
