GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
This product must be grounded. If a treadmill should malfunction or breakdown, grounding provides a path
of least resistance for electrical current to reduce the risk of electrical 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 local codes and ordinances.
TREADMILL
OPERATION
WARNING
Improper connection of the equipment-grounding conductor can result in a 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.

FOLDING
If you can feel a slipping sensation when running on the
treadmill, the running belt must be tightened. In most
cases, the belt has stretched from use, causing the
belt to slip. This is a normal and common adjustment.
To eliminate this slipping, turn the treadmill off
and tension both the rear roller bolts using the
supplied Allen wrench, turning them 1/4 TURN to the
right as shown. Turn the treadmill on and check for
slipping. Repeat if necessary, but NEVER TURN the
roller bolts more than 1/4 turn at a time. Belt is properly
tensioned when the slipping sensation is gone.
CENTERING THE RUNNING BELT
The running belt has been properly adjusted at the
factory before it was shipped. At times the belt can
move off-center during shipment. Before operating the
treadmill, make sure the belt is centered and remains
centered to maintain smooth operation.

In this program, the large LED dot matrix window displays your heart rate during exercise. The middle row
represents your target heart rate (THR) and the other rows equal +/-2 heart beats. If you are working out
beneath your THR, the LEDs below the middle row will illuminate. If you are over, the LEDs above the middle
row will illuminate. Your current heart rate is represented by the flashing column and the window will refresh

Distance = Yards
After the 5 minute warm-up period, the incline level will increase gradually to get the user to the entered
target heart rate zone. Once the user is at the target heart rate zone (plus or minus 5 beats per minute)
the incline level will remain until you would rise above or drop below you target heart rate zone at which
time the incline would adjust accordingly. The last 5 minutes of the program will begin the cool down period. At
this time, the program will gradually decrease the resistance level to give the user a smooth cool down.

HOW OFTEN? (Frequency of Workouts)
The American Heart Association recommends that you exercise at least 3 to 4 days per week to maintain
cardiovascular fitness. If you have other goals such as weight or fat loss, you will achieve your goal faster with
more frequent exercise. Whether it’s 3 days or 6 days, remember that your ultimate goal should be to make
exercise a lifetime habit. Many people are successful staying with a fitness program if they set aside a specific
time of day to exercise. It doesn’t matter whether it’s in the morning before breakfast, during lunch hour or while
watching the evening news. What’s more important is that it’s a time that allows you to keep a schedule, and a
time when you won’t be interrupted. To be successful with your fitness program, you have to make it a priority in
your life. So decide on a time, pull out your day planner and pencil in your exercise times for the next month!
ASSEMBLY
THR ZONE 1
HOW LONG? (Duration of Workouts)
For aerobic exercise benefits, it’s recommended that you exercise from between 24 and 60 minutes per session.
But start slowly and gradually increase your exercise times. If you’ve been sedentary during the past year, it may
be a good idea to keep your exercise times to as little as five minutes initially. Your body will need time to adjust
to the new activity. If your goal is weight loss, a longer exercise session at lower intensities has been found to
be most effective. A workout time of 48 minutes or more is recommended for best weight loss results.
BEFORE
YOU BEGIN
Lets you
a perfect workout for you with specific speed, incline and time combination.
The ultimate in personal programming. Time-based goal.
Always consult your physician before beginning an exercise program.
HOW HARD? (Intensity of Workouts)
How hard you workout is also determined by your goals. If you use your treadmill to prepare for a 5K run, you will
probably work out at a higher intensity than if your goal is general fitness. Regardless of your long term goals,
always begin an exercise program at low intensity. Aerobic exercise does not have to be painful to be beneficial!
There are two ways to measure your exercise intensity. The first is by monitoring your heart rate (using the grip
pulse handlebars or a wireless chest transmitter - may be sold separately), and the second is by evaluating your
perceived exertion level (this is simpler than it sounds!).

A simple way to gauge your exercise intensity is to evaluate your perceived exertion level. While exercising, if you
are too winded to maintain a conversation without gasping, you are working out too hard. A good rule of thumb
is to work to the point of exhilaration, not exhaustion. If you cannot catch your breath, it’s time to slow down.
Always be aware of these warning signs of overexertion.

Target Heart Rate Zone tells you
the number of times per minute
your heart needs to beat to
achieve a desired workout effect.
It is represented as a percentage
of the maximum number of times
your heart can beat per minute.
Target Zone will vary for each
individual, depending on age,
current level of conditioning,
and personal fitness goals. The
American Heart Association
recommends working-out at a
Target Heart Rate Zone of between
60% and 75% of your maximum
heart rate. A beginner will want to
workout in the 60% range while
a more experienced exerciser will
want to workout in the 70-75%
range. See chart for reference.
IMPORTANT
PRECAUTIONS
What is Target Heart Rate Zone?
ASSEMBLY
Before using your product, it is best to take a few minutes doing a few gentle stretching exercises.
Stretching prior to exercise will improve flexibility and reduce chances of exercise related injury. Ease into
each of these stretches with a slow gentle motion. Do not stretch to the point of pain. Make sure not to
bounce while doing these stretches.

If possible try to define your personal goals in precise, measurable terms, and then put your goals in writing.
The more specific you can be, the easier it will be to track your progress. If your goals are long term, divide
them up into monthly and weekly segments. Longer term goals can lose some of the immediate motivation
benefits. Short term goals are easier to achieve. Your console provides you with several readouts that can
be used to record your progress. You can track Distance, Calories or Time.

M O N T H LY L O G SHEETS
ARE THE SOUNDS MY TREADMILL MAKES NORMAL?
All treadmills make a certain type of thumping noise due to the belt riding over the rollers, especially new
treadmills. This noise will diminish over time, although may not totally go away. Over time, the belt will
stretch, causing the belt to ride smoother over the rollers.
WHY IS THE TREADMILL I PURCHASED LOUDER THAN THE ONE AT THE STORE?
M O N TH LY T O TA L S :
ASSEMBLY
ASSEMBLY
All fitness products seem quieter in a large store showroom because there is generally more background noise
than in your home. Also, there will be less reverberation on a carpeted concrete floor than on a wood overlay
floor. Sometimes a heavy rubber mat will help reduce reverberation through the floor. If a fitness product is
placed close to a wall, there will be more reflected noise.
WHEN SHOULD I BE WORRIED ABOUT A NOISE?
As long as the sounds your treadmill makes are no louder than a normal conversational tone of voice, it is
considered normal noise.

You may experience an erratic readout under the following conditions:
• Gripping the heart rate handlebars too tight. Try to maintain moderate pressure while holding onto the heart rate handlebars.
• Constant movement and vibration due to constantly holding the heart rate handlebars while exercising. If you are receiving erratic
heart rate readouts, try to only hold the grips long enough to monitor your heart rate.
• When you are breathing heavily during a workout.
• When your hands are constricted by wearing a ring.
• When your hands are dry or cold. Try to moisten your palms by rubbing them together to warm.
• Anyone with heavy arrhythmia.
• Anyone with arteriosclerosis or peripheral circulation disorder.
