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.
TREADMILL
OPERATION
Do not operate the treadmill if the power cord or plug is damaged.
If the treadmill appears to not be working properly, do not use the treadmill.
CAUTION: Running belt should NOT be moving during
tensioning. Over-tightening the running belt can
cause excessive wear on the treadmill as well as its
components. Never over-tighten the belt.
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 the upright, folded
position with the lock latch secured. Failure to follow these instructions could
result in injury.
Belt is too far to the right side
With the treadmill running at 1/2 mph, turn the right
adjustment bolt clockwise 1/4 turn at a time (using
the supplied Allen wrench). Check the belt alignment.
Allow belt to run a full cycle to gauge if more adjustment
is needed. Repeat if necessary, until the belt remains
centered during use.

INTRODUCTION
TA RGE T HE A RT RAT E Z ONE CHA RT
BEFORE
YOU BEGIN
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.
HOW HARD? (Intensity of Workouts)
TREADMILL
OPERATION
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 and the second is by evaluating your perceived exertion level (this is simpler than it
sounds!).

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.

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!

TROUBLESHOOTING
& MAINTENANCE
TROUBLESHOOTING
& MAINTENANCE
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.
Always consult your physician before beginning an exercise program.

1. STANDING CALF MUSCLE STRETCH
BEFORE
YOU BEGIN
Stand near a wall with the toes of your left foot about 18" from the wall, and
the right 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.
Repeat on the other side.
INTRODUCTION
WARM UP
IMPORTANT
PRECAUTIONS
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.
THE IMPORTANCE OF WARM UP & COOL DOWN
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. The warm up should gradually bring your heart rate into your Target Heart Rate Zone.
COOL DOWN
Never stop exercising suddenly! A cool-down period of 3-5 minutes 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.

ACHIEVING YOUR FITNESS GOALS
BEFORE
YOU BEGIN
STRETCHING
An important step in developing a long term fitness program is to determine your goals. Is your primary
goal for exercising to lose weight? Improve muscle? Reduce 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:

GUIDELINES
3. SITTING HAMSTRING & LOWER BACK MUSCLE STRETCH
TROUBLESHOOTING
& MAINTENANCE
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 one time.
TREADMILL
OPERATION
• Weight Loss - lower intensity, longer duration workouts
• Improve Body Shape and Tone - interval workouts, alternate between high and low intensities
• Increased Energy Level - more frequent daily workouts
• Improved Sports Performance - high intensity workouts
• Improved Cardiovascular Endurance - moderate intensity, longer duration workouts
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.

Does the red light on the ON/OFF switch light up?
If yes:
• Double check that all connections are secure, especially the console cable. Unplug and reconnect the console
cable to verify.
• Make sure the console cable is not pinched or damaged in any way.
• Turn the power off, unplug the power cable and wait 60 seconds. Remove motor cover. Wait until all red LED
lights have gone off on the motor control board before proceeding. Next, verify that none of the wires connected
to the lower board are loose or disconnected.
If no:
• Verify that the outlet the machine is plugged into is functional. Double check that the breaker has not tripped,
it is on a dedicated 20-amp circuit, it is not on a GFCI-equipped outlet, and it is not plugged into a power
strip/surge protector or extension cord.
• The power cord is not pinched or damaged and is properly plugged into the outlet AND the machine.
• The power switch is turned to the ON position.

• Power on the treadmill and have the safety key in position on the
console. Press and hold the elevation “+” and speed “-” buttons for
approximately 5 seconds to enter the Engineering Mode. The console
will beep and “ENG0” appears in the display.
• Press the Speed “+” or “-” button until “ENG2” appears in the display.
• Press, “ENTER” to select. Press, “START” to begin. The treadmill
running belt will begin to move automatically and the auto-calibration
sequence will properly set and store the speed values.
• Upon successful calibration, the treadmill will beep several times. The
console will automatically exit Engineering Mode and return to the
start-up screen.
IMPORTANT
PRECAUTIONS
WARNING
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.
PROBLEM: Operating speed appears inaccurate.
SOLUTION: Auto-calibrate the treadmill:
DO NOT stand on running belt while
calibrating – stand on the guide
rails. Treadmill will fluctuate between
low and high speeds for several
minutes until calibration is complete.
BEFORE
YOU BEGIN
WHY IS THE TREADMILL I PURCHASED LOUDER THAN THE ONE AT THE STORE?
• Make sure the treadmill is on a level surface.
• Verify that the belt is properly tightened and centered (Refer to the Adjustment section for detailed directions).
TROUBLESHOOTING - HEART RATE
Check your exercise environment for sources of interference such as fluorescent lights, computers, underground fencing, home
security systems 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.
TREADMILL
OPERATION
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.

INTRODUCTION
TR O U B LE S H OOTING
In order for Customer Tech Support to service your treadmill they may need to ask detailed questions about the symptoms that are
occurring. Some troubleshooting questions that may be asked are:
• How long has this problem been occurring?
• Does this problem occur with every use? With every user?
• If you are hearing a noise, does it come from the front or the back? What kind of noise is it (thumping, grinding, squeaking,
chirping etc.)?
• Has the machine been lubricated and maintained per the maintenance schedule?
Answering these and other questions will give the technicians the ability to send proper replacement parts and the service necessary
to get you and your Horizon Fitness treadmill running again!

Cleanliness of your treadmill and its operation environment will keep maintenance problems and service calls to a
minimum. For this reason, we recommend that the following preventive maintenance schedule be followed.
EVERY 6 MONTHS OR 150 MILES
It is necessary to lubricate your treadmill running deck every six months
or 150 miles to maintain optimal performance. Once the treadmill reaches
150 miles, the console will display the message “LUBE” or “LUBE BELT”.
The treadmill will not operate while the message is showing. Hold Stop
for 5 seconds to suspend message for 5 miles. Your treadmill came with
a bottle of lubricant which can be used for two applications. If you need
lubricant, contact Horizon Fitness. Only use lubricant provided by Horizon
