Installation Requirements
•
Open the box and assemble the components in the sequence
presented in this guide.
Follow these installation requirements when assembling the unit:
•
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 cross-threading. Do not fully wrench
tighten fasteners until instructed to do so.
•
Assemble the unit near the location where you plan to use it
because it is heavy.
•
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.
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 equipment will occur.
Contact Customer Support. Refer to Obtaining Service.
Important: Assemble the unit near the location where you plan to use it
and provide ample space around the unit. Consult the Product Owner’s
Manual for proper placement of your equipment.

 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 the
following figure.
 Always face forward on the equipment and use the stationary
handrail or handlebars for balance.
 On self-powered equipment, maintain a comfortable rate of
motion above the minimum requirements. Check with the facility
manager to determine the requirements to maintain power.
11
 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.
 If Hr blinks in the HEART RATE display, it is detecting a signal,
but has not yet determined your heart rate. Make sure the chest
strap is positioned properly around your chest and against your
skin.
 If you prefer to use the touch-sensitive grips, grasp both and
wait five to ten seconds. Make sure both hands are moist (not
dry).
 When a signal is detected, a number flashes in the
HEART RATE display and indicates your heart rate.

Using the Touch-Sensitive Grips
While exercising, you must grasp both touch-sensitive grips for a
minimum of five to ten seconds to transmit your heart rate to the
display. Refer to the following figure.
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 grips. A chest strap may provide better results.
Important: While exercising, do not wear a chest strap and grasp
the touch-sensitive grips at the same time. Using both features
may cause erratic heart rate readings.
Figure 8: Touch-sensitive grips
User's Reference Manual: Heart Rate Features

Using SmartRate
The SmartRate feature helps you monitor and maintain your heart
rate in the target zone best suited to your specific needs. When a
heart rate signal is detected, a single LED blinks and indicates the
zone that your heart rate is in.
Important: To use the SmartRate feature, you must enter your age
during program selection. Refer to Selecting a Program.
The following table shows the percents used in calculating the
heart rate target zones. While your heart rate remains within these
zones, the corresponding light blinks and provides a visual cue.
CAUTION: Your heart rate should never exceed 85% of your
maximum aerobic heart rate or go above PEAK. If it does,
immediately reduce the intensity of your workout to return your
heart rate to your physician-recommended target zone.
The SmartRate indicator lights do not blink when:
 You do not wear or improperly position the chest strap. Or, you
fail to grasp both touch-sensitive grips for five to ten seconds.
 You do not enter your age during an exercise session.
For example, pressing QUICKSTART at the Precor banner
causes the Manual Program to begin. Your age has not been
entered and is considered a null value. Your heart rate will
appear in the HEART RATE display when you hold onto the
touch-sensitive grips or wear a chest strap, but none of the
SmartRate LEDs blink because the appropriate calculations
have not been made.
Note: You can remedy this situation by choosing a program
using one of the PROGRAMS keys and entering your time,
weight, and age.

Exercise to Your Target Heart Rate
Heart Rate Analysis
A dedicated window displays your heart rate while you exercise. To
view your heart rate (beats per minute) on the display, either wear a
chest strap or grasp both touch-sensitive grips.
Every time you complete a program using the chest strap or
touch-sensitive grips, the display provides a heart rate analysis
after the workout summary. Refer to Ending a Workout.
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.
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 equipment includes one or more heart rate programs that let
you exercise based on a specified target heart rate. As you
exercise, the programs monitor your heart rate and automatically
maintain it within a few beats per minute of your selected target. To
use these programs, press the PROGRAMS – HEART RATE key.
For more information, refer to Programs.
User's Reference Manual: Heart Rate Features
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 grips.
16
Troubleshooting Heart Rate
The following table 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. A user must
wear the chest strap or grasp both touch-sensitive grips.

STRIDES
TIME ELAPSED—displays time in minutes and seconds
and indicates the amount of time you have been
exercising. When you exceed 60 minutes during a single
session, the display converts to hours and minutes.
DISTANCE—shows the linear distance in either miles or
kilometers.
Note: The fitness facility can place limits on workout time.
TIME REMAINING—shows the amount of time remaining
in a workout. If the selected time is less than 60 minutes,
the display shows time in minutes and seconds. If you
select a time greater than 60 minutes, the display reflects
hours and minutes until the countdown reaches 60
minutes, at which time the display reverts to minutes and
seconds.
CALORIES—indicates the estimated cumulative number of
calories being burned.
CROSSRAMP
STRIDES/MIN—displays the number of strides you
complete in a minute up to a maximum value of 510
strides per minute. A stride is an exaggerated walking
movement. If you start in a position with one foot pedal
forward, a stride is completed when you move the rear
foot pedal all the way forward while the other foot pedal
moves to the rear. Two strides create one complete
revolution of the flywheel. So, the value that appears on
the display is always an even number between 56 and
510. The average and most effective pace is between
100 and 150 strides per minute.
TOTAL STRIDES—shows the total number of strides
completed, which is always an even number since two
strides create one complete revolution of the flywheel.
CROSSRAMP—displays the incremental motion affected
by the ramp position. The CROSSRAMP keys affect the
lift and let you set a ramp incline between 1 and 20. The
value displayed can change in whole number increments.

Use the following table to learn more about each workout program.
Choosing a Program
Choosing a program depends on your goals. If you are a beginner
or returning to regular exercise, you can start a cardio-conditioning
program to slowly return your body to a comfortable level of
exercise. If you have been exercising and feel that you have an
intermediate or advanced fitness level, you probably have
established goals. The Precor web site (www.precor.com) can give
you many ideas about fitness routines and advice from the experts.
Several of the exercise choices on the equipment are
preprogrammed with recommended settings. However, you have
the option to override the suggested settings, with some
exceptions. If changes are not allowed, a message scrolls across
the display explaining your options.

 Begin at the Precor banner and choose a program by pressing
a PROGRAMS key or QUICKSTART.
 While exercising, you need to sustain your exercise motion.
Stopping any movement causes the equipment to shut down to
conserve battery power.
 A blinking column indicates your position as you progress
through a workout.
 To use the SmartRate feature, you need to specify your age and
wear a chest strap or hold on to the touch-sensitive grips.
 In some programs, an unlimited time setting may be an available
option.
 The fitness facility can set limits on workout, pause, and cool
down times and customize other aspects of your exercise
session. Check with your manager to learn if any limits are in
place that might affect your program selections.
If your level of exertion becomes too great, reduce your level of
intensity by overriding each upcoming segment in the program
profile. When you complete a program that contains a time limit or
goal period, an automatic cool-down period begins.

specified period of time.
A cool-down period occurs automatically when you end your
workout. An exception to the cool-down period exists if the fitness
facility allows it. Refer to Cooling Down After a Workout for more
information.
Note: To use the SmartRate feature, you need to specify your age
by accessing the Manual Program through the PROGRAMS key
and answering the age prompt. If you use QUICKSTART to access
the Manual Program, your age has a zero or null value so the
SmartRate feature is not available.
User's Reference Manual: Programs
The program lets you choose the rest and work intervals according
to your training regimen.
While exercising, you can vary your stride rate and the resistance.
To change the preset resistance settings, use the RESISTANCE
keys. The settings are repeated throughout the remainder of the
program. The display lets you know when the resistance is about to
change and it indicates the levels of the next interval.
34
Gluteal Program
The Gluteal Program, available by pressing the VARIETY key, is
designed to exercise the gluteal muscles. The ramp incline levels
are preprogrammed. You can monitor the current intensity of your
workout by reviewing the profile, which tracks the ramp level as it
changes.
Heart Rate Program
The Basic HRC Program, available by pressing the HEART RATE
key, lets you set a target for your heart rate. The program adjusts
the resistance to maintain your heart rate within two beats per
minute of the target heart rate while you exercise. To use this
program, you must enter your age and wear a chest strap so your
heart rate can be monitored throughout the session.
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 navigational arrow keys to change the
target heart rate once you finish the warm-up period. Do not
exercise over the recommended range.
User's Reference Manual: Programs
Heart Rate Program Tips
The Basic HRC Program enhances your overall cardiovascular
fitness levels to help you achieve your weight loss and fitness
goals. Read through the following tips before selecting the Basic
HRC Program. These tips provide general information regarding
how the program functions. For more information and exercise
suggestions, refer to the Precor web site at www.precor.com.
Important: Maintain a rate of motion above the minimum
requirements. Refer to Self-Powered Features. Automatic
adjustments to the resistance cannot take place if you drop below
the minimum requirements for operation.
 The program provides a 3-minute warm-up period. During this
time, you may change the resistance or CrossRamp settings.
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 automatically adjusts the resistance to keep your
heart rate at the selected target. After the warm-up period,
pressing the RESISTANCE keys no longer affects the
resistance levels. Check the SmartRate display to see if you are
maintaining your preferred zone. Check the HEART RATE
display to determine your actual heart rate. For information
about understanding your target heart rate, refer to Heart Rate
Features.
35
 You can change the target heart rate, but doing so affects how
well your target heart rate remains in the preferred zone. It takes
time to readjust the resistance so that your heart rate remains
on target.
Weight Loss Program
 If you wish to quit the Basic HRC Program, you can make a
mid-session transfer to another program, but you cannot return
or transfer mid-session to the Basic HRC Program.
The Weight Loss Program, available by pressing the WEIGHT
LOSS key, provides a program targeted at lowering body fat while
improving muscle tone and conditioning.
 A cool down period is automatically added to the end of the
program.
The workout time is fixed at 28 minutes and consists of seven
4-minute intervals. You are not prompted for a workout time.
If you are having difficulty with the heart rate features, talk to your
fitness facility manager.
Use the RESISTANCE keys to change the resistance for the rest
or work intervals. When you make changes, the program repeats
the settings for the remaining intervals. You can use the
CROSSRAMP keys to change the ramp incline.
The display lets you know when the resistance levels are about to
change.
Note: You cannot transfer mid-session to the Weight Loss
Program.
User's Reference Manual: Programs
36
For the ideal weight loss range, your heart rate should remain
between 55% and 70% of your maximum aerobic heart rate. If you
wear a chest strap or grasp both touch-sensitive grips, you can use
SmartRate as a visual cue.
 Set a comfortable stride rate and then adjust the settings.
 Maintain a level of exertion so that the SmartRate LEDs in the
FATBURN target zone blink in the display during the rest
intervals.
 During the work intervals, increase your level of exertion so that
the LEDs in the CARDIO target zone blink.
For more information about the SmartRate display, refer to Using
SmartRate.

reattach the safety clip, press the SPEED up key or QUICKSTART
and reenter the safety code, if necessary.
Note: The treadmill retains users’ workout statistics if they resume
their workout within the limit set for pause mode.
ENTER SAFETY CODE
Users have two minutes to press the following number key
sequence and continue their workout: 1, 2, 3, 4.
Important: Tell users to hold onto the handrail with one hand
before entering the safety code with the other hand.
If the correct keys are pressed, the program selection process
begins. If the code is incorrect, the display prompts the user to
reenter the code after a 2-minute time out.
Figure 4: Attaching the safety clip
Note: On the treadmill, a 3-second countdown appears on the
display, and then the running belt starts moving. Refer to Workout

It is important to keep the area around the treadmill open and free
from encumbrances such as other equipment. The minimum space
requirement needed for user safety and proper maintenance is
three feet wide by six feet deep (one meter wide by two meters
deep), directly behind the running belt.
Important: When it is not being used, turn the treadmill Off.
Weight Limit
You should not allow runners over 350 lb. (160 kg) or walkers
heavier than 500 lb. (225 kg) on the treadmill.
Product Owner's Manual: Treadmill Safety Features
11
Self-Powered Features
On self-powered equipment, the battery initializes and displays the
Precor banner when a user starts exercising. A minimum rate of
motion must be maintained for the banner to appear, as shown in
the following table. When a person meets the requirements, the
power that is generated allows the equipment to function properly.
Table 1. Minimum requirements for operation
Equipment Rate of Motion
EFX
Cycle
40 strides per minute (SPM)
20 revolutions per minute (RPM)
Informational displays appear when the battery is low or when the
rate of motion drops below the minimum requirements. The display
explains what to do to retain power. If the messages are ignored,
the equipment begins shutdown procedures to maintain the charge
of the battery. Refer to Informational Displays Prior to Shutdown.
An optional power adapter can be purchased and provides
sustained power to the equipment. If you plan to change the
program settings, the power adapter is highly recommended. To
purchase the optional power adapter, check with your dealer.
Product Owner's Manual: Self-Powered Features
Informational Displays Prior to
Shutdown
The equipment saves its battery charge by moving into a shutdown
mode. If the user does not maintain the minimum rate of motion, a
30-second shutdown process begins.
Dots appear in the display and all key presses are ignored. If no
movement is detected or the rate of motion remains below the
minimum, the dots steadily disappear as the countdown continues.
Note: The user can resume exercising if he or she begins before
the countdown period elapses.
Important: If the equipment is connected to a CSAFE master
device, a slightly different scenario occurs. When ten seconds
remain before the equipment shuts off, the exercise session ends.
RESETTING appears in the display while the equipment
disconnects from the CSAFE master device. All key presses are
ignored.
12
Symptoms of a Low Battery
Using the Optional Power Adapter
If no one has used the equipment for an extended period of time,
the battery may need recharging.
After connecting the power adapter to the equipment, plug the
opposite end into the appropriate power source 120 V or 240 V.
Symptoms of a low battery include:
CAUTION: When the optional power adapter is in use, make sure
that the power supply cord does not create a safety hazard. Keep
it out of the way of traffic and moving parts. If the power supply
cord or power conversion module is damaged, it must be
replaced.
 A flickering or erratic display
 User and workout information is lost once the user stops
exercising. No workout summary or notification of pending
shutdown occurs.
Important: To maintain a constant power source, use the optional
power adapter.
Product Owner's Manual: Self-Powered Features
The display functions differently when the power adapter is
connected. Because the power adapter provides a constant
source of power, a user can pause for brief periods without
initiating shutdown procedures. When the pause time limit expires
and the user has not resumed exercising, the display returns to the
Precor banner. Refer to Setting a Pause Time Limit. To learn how
to install the power adapter, refer to The Optional Power Adapter
Kit.
13
The Optional Power Adapter Kit
Replacing the Battery
If you purchase the optional power adapter, you must also
purchase the internal cable kit. The kit supplies the cable, bracket,
and fasteners that connect the power adapter to the lower
electronics board.
The equipment’s battery is built to last for a long time. However, if
you feel that the battery may need replacing, check with an
authorized service technician. Refer to Obtaining Service.
CAUTION: The internal cable kit must be installed by authorized
service personnel. Do not attempt installation on your own as
you could void the Precor Limited Warranty. For more
information, refer to Obtaining Service.
CAUTION: The battery stored inside the equipment contains
hazardous materials and must be disposed of according to
Hazardous Waste Regulations. Refer to Hazardous Materials
and Proper Disposal.
Once the internal cable kit is installed, you can plug the optional
power adapter into the equipment. Plug the opposite end into the
appropriate power source for your equipment 120 V or 240 V.

Treadmill: Determining the Club Speed
Limit
You can set a maximum speed for the treadmill. This limits how fast
the running belt moves and, consequently, the number of speed
settings that are available to the user. The speed is displayed in
miles per hour (mph) or kilometers per hour (kph) depending upon
the units of measure (U.S. standard or Metric) selected earlier. The
speed ranges from 0.5 to 12 mph (0.8 to 20kph).
Important: If you select a number that limits the miles per hour,
your change will not affect the kilometers per hour (and vice
versa). The treadmill does not convert the speed entered in mph
(U.S. standard) to kph (Metric). It stores separate numbers for the

Maintenance
It is important to perform the minor maintenance tasks described
below. Failure to maintain the equipment as described in this
section could void the Precor Limited Warranty.
DANGER
To reduce the risk of electrical shock, always
unplug the equipment from its power source (an
optional power adapter in the case of
self-powered equipment) before cleaning it or
performing any maintenance tasks.
Daily Inspection
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.
On treadmills, check for worn, frayed or missing safety lanyards.
Replace missing or worn safety lanyards immediately. Make sure
users attach the safety clip to their clothing before exercising on
the treadmill.
Daily Cleaning
Precor recommends the equipment be cleaned before and after
each exercise session. Use mild soap and water to dampen a
clean, soft cloth and wipe all exposed surfaces. This helps remove
dust and 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
equipment. Allow the equipment to dry completely before using.
Frequently vacuum the floor underneath the equipment to prevent
the accumulation of dust and dirt, which can affect the smooth
operation of the equipment. Use a soft nylon scrub brush to clean
the running belt on treadmills or the grooves on equipment with
foot pedals.
CAUTION: On treadmills, as you clean the hood or side rails, be
aware of the handrail extensions so you do not inadvertently hit
your head or injure yourself.
Important: If you determine that the equipment needs service,
disconnect any power connections and move the equipment away
from the exercising area. Place an OUT OF SERVICE sign on it
and make sure all patrons and users know that they must not use
the equipment.
