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.
1. It is the responsibility of the owner to ensure
that all users of this treadmill are adequately
informed of all warnings and precautions.
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 or stop unexpectedly, which may result
in a fall and serious injury.
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
the power cord, and move the reset/off circuit
breaker to the off position when the treadmill

and order part number 146148.
19. When folding or moving the treadmill, make
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 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
resistance for electric current to reduce the risk of elec-

FEATURES OF THE CONSOLE
The treadmill console offers an impressive array of
features designed to make your workouts more effective.
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 instant exercise feedback. You can even measure your heart rate using the handgrip pulse sensor or
the optional chest pulse sensor (see page 25).
In addition, the console offers ten preset programs.
Each program automatically controls the speed and incline of the treadmill as it guides you through an effective workout. Two heart rate programs are also offered.
Each program automatically adjusts the speed and incline of the treadmill to keep your heart rate within a target range while you exercise. The console even allows
you to create your own programs and save them in
memory for future use. Note: The heart rate programs
require the use of the optional chest pulse sensor.
The console also features iFIT.com interactive technology. Having iFIT.com technology is like having a per-
Clip
sonal 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 toll-free
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. Additional options are soon to be available. 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, see page 14. To create and use a custom
program, see pages 16 and 17. To use an iFIT.com

Press the Start button to start the program.
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.
The two profiles on the right side of the console
show how the target heart rate will change during
the programs. During heart rate program 1, your
heart rate will reach approximately 85% of your
estimated maximum heart rate; during heart rate
program 2, your heart rate will reach approximately 90% of your estimated maximum heart
rate. 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).
Each heart rate program is divided into 30 oneminute segments. One target heart rate is programmed for each segment.
During each segment, the console will regularly
compare your heart rate to the current target heart
rate. If your heart rate is too far below or above
the target heart rate, the speed of the treadmill will
18
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 4 on page 18) and your heart
rate is still 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.
If your pulse is not detected during the program,
the letters “PLS” will flash in the Pulse/Pace display, and the speed and incline of the treadmill
may automatically decrease until your pulse is detected. If this occurs, see the instructions included
with the optional chest pulse sensor.
To stop the program temporarily, press the Stop
button. The Time display will begin to flash. To
restart the program, press the Start button or the
Speed increase button. After a moment, the walking belt will begin to move at 1 mph. When the
the console compares your heart rate to the current target heart rate, the speed and/or incline of
the treadmill may then automatically change.
During the last three seconds of each segment, a
series of tones will sound and the Speed display
and the Incline display will flash.
The program will continue until no time remains.
The walking belt will then slow to a stop.
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 current 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.

Most treadmill problems can be solved by following the instructions below. If further assistance is
needed, please call our Customer Service Department toll-free at 1-866-997-6999, Monday through Friday,
6 a.m. until 6 p.m. Mountain Time (excluding holidays).
PROBLEM: The power does not turn on
SOLUTION: a. Make sure that the power cord is plugged into a surge suppressor, and that the surge suppressor
is plugged into a properly grounded outlet (see page 9). Use only a single-outlet surge suppressor
that meets all of the specifications described on page 9. Important: The treadmill is not compatible
with GFCI-equipped outlets.
b. Make sure that the key is fully inserted into the console.
c. Check the reset/off circuit breaker located on the frame near the
power cord. If the switch protrudes as shown, the circuit breaker has
tripped. To reset the circuit breaker, wait for five minutes and then
press the switch back in.

PROBLEM: The power turns off during use
SOLUTION: a. Check the reset/off circuit breaker (see 1. c. above). If the circuit breaker has tripped, wait for five
minutes and then press the switch back in.
b. Make sure that the power cord is plugged in. If the power cord is plugged in, unplug it, wait for
five minutes, and then plug it back in.
c. Remove the key from the console and then reinsert it.
PROBLEM: The displays of the console do not function properly
SOLUTION: a. Remove the key from the console and UNPLUG THE
POWER CORD. Next, remove the screws from the hood
and carefully remove the hood. Locate the Reed Switch
(42) and the Magnet (24) on the left side of the Pulley (40).
Turn the Pulley until the Magnet is aligned with the Reed
Switch. Make sure that the gap between the Magnet
and the Reed Switch is about 1/8”. If necessary, loosen
the indicated Screw (43), move the Reed Switch slightly,
and then retighten the Screw. Reattach the hood and run
the treadmill for a few minutes to check for a correct speed
reading.

PROBLEM: The walking belt slows when walked on
SOLUTION: a. Use only a single-outlet surge suppressor that meets all of the specifications described on page 9.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 measure your heart rate during exercise, use the
handgrip pulse sensor.
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.
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-
