should always be followed, including the following: Read all instructions before using this treadmill. It
is the responsibility of the owner to ensure that all users of this treadmill are adequately informed of all
warnings and precautions.
WARNING! Connect this exercise product to a properly grounded outlet only. See grounding instructions.
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.
DANGER! 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.
This product is for use on a nominal 120-volt circuit, and has a grounding plug that looks like the plug
illustrated below. A temporary adapter such as the one illustrated below may be used to connect this
plug to a 2-pole receptacle as shown, if a properly grounded outlet is not available. The temporary
adapter should be used only until a properly grounded outlet 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.

Before You Begin
CONGRATULATIONS! on choosing your treadmill. You’ve taken an important step in developing
and sustaining an exercise program! Your treadmill is a tremendously effective tool for achieving your
personal fitness goals. Regular use of your treadmill can improve the quality of your life in so many
ways.
Here are just a few of the health benefits of exercise:
• Weight Loss • A Healthier Heart • Improved Muscle Tone • Increased Daily Energy Levels • Reduced
Stress • Help In Countering Anxiety and Depression • An Improved Self Image
The key to reaping these benefits is to develop an exercise habit. Your new treadmill will help you eliminate the obstacles that prevent you from getting in your exercise time. Inclement weather and darkness won't interfere with your workout when you use your treadmill in the comfort of your home. This
guide provides you with basic information for using and enjoying your new machine. A more complete
knowledge of your new treadmill will assist you in realizing your goal of a healthy lifestyle.
TURN POWER ON
Make sure that your treadmill is properly connected to a power outlet. The on/off switch is located next to
the power cord. Flip this switch to the 'on' position, so that the switch is lit. You will hear a beep and the
console will light up.
DO NOT STAND ON THE BELT
While you are preparing to use the treadmill, do not stand on the belt. Place your feet on the side rails
before starting the treadmill. Start walking on the belt only after the belt has begun to move. Never
start the treadmill at a fast running speed and attempt to jump on!
9
SAFETY KEY
Your treadmill will not start unless the safety key is placed in position. Attach the clip end securely to
your clothing. This safety key is designed to cut the power to the treadmill if you should fall. NEVER
USE THE TREADMILL WITHOUT SECURING THE SAFETY KEY CLIP TO YOUR CLOTHING. PULL ON
THE SAFETY KEY CLIP FIRST TO MAKE SURE IT WILL NOT COME OFF YOUR CLOTHING.
FOLDING
Firmly grasp the back end of the treadmill. Carefully lift the end of the treadmill deck into the upright
position until the foot lock latch engages and securely locks the deck into position. Make sure the deck
is securely latched before letting go. To unfold, firmly grasp the back end of the treadmill. Gently press
down on the foot lock latch with your foot until the lock latch disengages. Carefully lower the deck to
the ground.
MOVING
Your treadmill has a pair of transport wheels built into the frame. To move, make sure the treadmill is
folded and securely latched. Then firmly grasp the handlebars, tilt the treadmill back and roll.
CAUTION! Our Treadmills are heavy, use care and additional help if necessary when moving. Do not
attempt to move or transport treadmill unless it is in upright, folded position with the lock latch
secured. Failure to follow these instructions could result in injury.
10
TENSIONING THE RUNNING BELT (NOTE: Running belt should NOT be moving during adjustments)
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 with
the appropriate size allen wrench, turning it 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 (NOTE: Running belt should NOT be moving during adjustments)
If the running belt is too far to the right side: turn the right adjustment bolt clockwise 1/4 turn at a
time. Turn the treadmill on and check the belt alignment. Repeat if necessary, until the belt remains
centered during use (using the supplied Allen wrench).
If the running belt is too far to the left side: turn the right adjustment bolt counter-clockwise 1/4 turn
at a time. Turn the treadmill on and check the belt alignment. Repeat if necessary, until the belt
remains centered during use (using the supplied Allen wrench).

Troubleshooting & Maintenance Procedures
COMMON PRODUCT QUESTIONS
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 HAD DELIVERED LOUDER THAN THE ONE AT THE STORE?
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 that a normal conversational tone of voice, it
is considered normal noise.
TROUBLESHOOTING - TREADMILL
Your treadmill is designed to be reliable and easy to use. However, if you experience a problem, please
reference the troubleshooting guide listed below.
PROBLEM: The console does not light up.
SOLUTION: Verify that the power cord is plugged in properly to the outlet, and that the treadmill switch
is turned on.
PROBLEM: The treadmill circuit breaker trips during a workout.
SOLUTION: Verify that the treadmill is plugged into a dedicated 20amp circuit, that it is NOT plugged
into an extension cord and that it is NOT plugged into a GFCI-equipped outlet.
PROBLEM: The treadmill shuts off when elevating.
SOLUTION: Verify that there is enough slack in the power cord to reach to the wall outlet during elevation.
19
TROUBLESHOOTING - TREADMILLS
PROBLEM: The running belt does not stay centered during a workout.
SOLUTION: Verify that the treadmill is on a level surface. Verify that the belt is properly tightened and
centered (Refer to the ADJUSTMENT section).
TROUBLESHOOTING - HEART RATE
Check your exercise environment for sources of interference such as fluorescent lights, computers, or
appliances containing large motors. These items may cause erratic heart rate readouts.
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.
• Anyone whose skin on the measuring palm is especially thick.
If the above troubleshooting section does not remedy the problem,
discontinue use and turn the power off.
PLEASE CALL OUR TOLL-FREE DIRECT CUSTOMER ASSISTANCE CENTER @ 1.888.993.3199
Mon.-Fri., 8 a.m.-5 p.m. CST (excluding holidays).

MAINTENANCE
Cleanliness of your treadmill and its operation environment will keep maintenance problems and service calls to a minumum. For this reason, we recommend that the following preventive maintenance
schedule be followed.
AFTER EACH USE (DAILY)
Clean and inspect, following these steps:
• Turn off the treadmill with the on/off switch, then unplug the power cord at the wall outlet.
• Wipe down the running belt, deck, motor cover, and console casing with a damp cloth. Never use
solvents, as they can cause damage to the treadmill.
• Inspect the power cord. If the power cord is damaged, contact Horizon Fitness.
• Make sure the power cord is not underneath the treadmill or in any other area where it can become
pinched or cut.
• Check the tension and alignment of the running belt. Make sure that the treadmill belt will not damage any other components on the treadmill by being misaligned.
EVERY WEEK
Clean underneath the treadmill, following these steps:
• Turn off the treadmill with the on/off switch, then unplug the power cord at the wall outlet.
• Fold the treadmill into the upright position, making sure that the lock latch is secure.
• Move the treadmill to a remote location.
• Wipe or vacuum any dust particles or other objects that may have accumulated underneath the treadmill.
• Return the treadmill to its previous position.
EVERY MONTH
• Turn off the treadmill with the on/off switch, then unplug the power cord at the wall outlet.
• Inspect all assembly bolts of the machine for proper tightness.
• Remove the motor cover and clean the motor and lower board area to eliminate any lint or dust
particles that may have accumulated. Failure to do so may result in premature failure of key electrical
components.
EVERY 6 MONTHS
It may be necessary to lubricate your treadmill running deck every six months to maintain optimal performance of your treadmill. Only use lubricant provided by Horizon Fitness! Please contact Horizon
Fitness with questions about applying lubricant to your treadmill.
• Turn off the treadmill with the on/off switch, then unplug the power cord at the wall outlet.
• Loosen both the rear roller bolts. (for best results, place two removable marks on both sides of the
frame and note roller position). Once the belt is loosened, take the bottle of lubricant and apply it to
the entire top surface of the running deck. Tighten both rear roller bolts (matching up the marks for
proper position) to original position. After you have applied lubricant, plug in the power cord, insert the
safety key, start the treadmill and walk on the belt for two minutes to spread the lubricant.
• Lubricate the air shocks with teflon based spray.

Conditioning Guidelines
Always consult your physician before beginning an exercise program.
HOW OFTEN?
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
your shower, 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. If you are 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!
HOW LONG?
For aerobic exercise benefits, it’s recommended that you exercise from between 24 and 32 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.
HOW HARD?
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-sold
separately), and the second is by evaluating your perceived exertion level (this is simpler than it
sounds!).
PERCEIVED EXERTION LEVEL
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 the warning signs of overexertion.
22
TARGET ZONE HEART RATE CHART
Your Target Zone is a percentage of your maximum heart rate. 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. See the chart below for convenient reference.
EXAMPLE: for a 42-year old user: find AGE along the bottom of the chart (round to 40),
follow AGE column up to the TARGET ZONE BAR. RESULTS: 60% of maximum Hear Rate = 108
Beats Per Minute, 75% of maximum Heart Rate = 135 Beat Per Minute.
23
DEVELOPING A FITNESS PROGRAM
STRETCH FIRST
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.
WALL PUSH
Stand near a wall with the toes of one foot about 18" from the wall, and the other foot about 12" behind
the other foot. Lean forward, pushing against the wall with your palms. Keep your heels flat and hold
this position for a count of 15 seconds. Make sure that you do not bounce while stretching. Alternate
positions of your feet and repeat for a total of 8 repetitions.
STANDING QUADRICEPS STRETCH
Using a wall to provide balance, grasp your left ankle with your left hand and hold your foot against the
back of your thigh for a count of 15 seconds. Repeat with your right ankle and hand, and continue alternating for a total of 8 repetitions.
SEATED TOE TOUCH
Sit on the floor with your legs together and straight out in front of you. Do not lock your knees. Extend
your fingers towards your toes and hold for a count of 15 seconds. Make sure that you do not bounce
while stretching. Sit upright again. Repeat for a total of 8 repetitions.
THE IMPORTANCE OF WARM UP & COOL DOWN
WARM UP
The first 2 to 5 minutes of a workout should be devoted to warming up. The warm-up will limber your
muscles and prepare them for more strenuous exercise. Make sure that you warm-up on your product
at a slow pace.
COOL DOWN
Never stop exercising suddenly! A cool-down period allows your heart to readjust to the decreased
demand. Make sure that your cool down period consists of a very slow pace to allow your heart rate to
lower. After the cool-down, repeat the stretching exercises listed above to loosen and relax your muscles.
24
ACHIEVING YOUR FITNESS GOALS
An important step in developing a long term fitness program is to determine your goals. Is your primary
goal for exercising on your treadmill to lose weight? Improve muscle? Burn stress? Prepare for the spring
racing schedule? Knowing what your goals are will help you develop a more successful exercise program.
Below are some common exercise goals:
•
•
•
•
•
Weight Loss
Improve Body Shape and Tone
Increased Energy Level
Improved Sports Performance
Improved Cardiovascular Endurance
•
•
•
•
Weight Maintenance
Strengthen Leg Muscles
Improved Sleep Patterns
Stress Reduction
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 treadmill console provides you
with several readouts that can be used to record your progress. You can track Distance, Calories or Time.
Time is the most important and useful of test functions.
KEEPING AN EXERCISE DAIRY
Photocopy the weekly and monthly log sheets which are located near the end of this user guide to make
your personal exercise log book. As time goes by you’ll be able to look back with pride at the work you’ve
done. As your fitness improves, you can look back and see how far you’ve come.
