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 incline trainer.
12. Failure to use a properly functioning surge
suppressor could result in damage to the control system of the incline trainer. If the control
system is damaged, the walking belt may
change speed, accelerate, or stop unexpectedly, which may result in a fall and serious injury.
1. It is the responsibility of the owner to ensure
that all users of this incline trainer are adequately informed of all warnings and precautions.
2. Use the incline trainer only as described.
3. Place the incline trainer on a level surface,
with at least eight feet of clearance behind it
and two feet on each side. Do not place the
incline trainer on any surface that blocks air
openings. To protect the floor or carpet from
damage, place a mat under the incline trainer.
13. Keep the power cord and the surge suppressor away from heated surfaces.
14. Never move the walking belt while the power
is turned off. Do not operate the incline
trainer if the power cord or plug is damaged,
or if the incline trainer is not working properly. (See BEFORE YOU BEGIN on page 5 if
the incline trainer is not working properly.)
4. Keep the incline trainer indoors, away from
moisture and dust. Do not put the incline
trainer in a garage or covered patio, or near
water.
15. Never start the incline trainer while you are
standing on the walking belt. Always hold the
handrails while using the incline trainer.
5. Do not operate the incline trainer where
aerosol products are used or where oxygen is
being administered.
16. The incline trainer is capable of high speeds.

6. Keep children under the age of 12 and pets
away from the incline trainer at all times.
7. The incline trainer should not be used by persons weighing more than 300 pounds.
17. 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. Never allow more than one person on the incline trainer at a time.
9. Wear appropriate exercise clothes when
using the incline trainer. Do not wear loose
clothes that could become caught in the incline trainer. Athletic support clothes are recommended for both men and women. Always
wear athletic shoes. Never use the incline

22. When folding or moving the incline trainer,
make sure that the storage latch is fully
closed.
27. Never insert or drop any object into any
opening.
26. Inspect and properly tighten all parts of the
incline trainer regularly.
28.
23. When using iFIT.com CDs and videos, an
electronic “chirping” sound will alert you
when the speed and/or incline of the incline
trainer 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.

OPERATION AND ADJUSTMENT
THE PRE-LUBRICATED WALKING BELT
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 incline trainer is not compatible
with GFCI-equipped outlets.
Your incline trainer features a walking belt coated with
high-performance 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.
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.
HOW TO PLUG IN THE POWER CORD
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 incline trainer, 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 incline trainer being damaged, always use a
surge suppressor with your incline trainer (see
drawing 1 at the right). To purchase a surge suppressor, see your local NordicTrack dealer or call
1-888-825-2588 and order part number 146148.

Adapter
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 incline trainer. 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 electric shock. This product is equipped with a cord having

guide you through effective workouts. Speed programs
regulate the intensity of your exercise primarily by
varying the speed of the walking belt, although they
also vary the incline; incline programs primarily vary
the incline, although they also vary the speed.
Each program is divided into one-minute segments. One speed setting and one incline setting
are programmed for each segment. Note: The
same speed setting and/or incline setting may be
programmed for two or more consecutive segments.
Follow the steps below to use a speed program or an
incline program.

walking belt has moved.
The Time/Distance display
will show the total number of
hours that the incline trainer
has been used.
An “E” for English miles or
an “M” for metric kilometers
will appear in the Speed/
Pace display. Press the
Speed + button to change
the unit of measurement.
IMPORTANT: The Fat Calories/Calories/Pulse display should be blank. If a “d” appears in the display,
the console is in the “demo” mode. This mode is intended to be used only when an incline trainer is displayed in a store. When the console is in the demo

CONDITIONING GUIDELINES
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.
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.
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.
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 higher number is the
recommended heart rate for aerobic exercise.
To measure your heart rate during exercise, use the
handgrip pulse sensor.
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-
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 and incline of the incline
trainer until your heart rate is near the lowest number
in your training zone.
For maximum fat burning, adjust the speed and incline
of the incline trainer until your heart rate is near the
middle number in your training zone.
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 and incline of the incline trainer until
your heart rate is near the highest number in your
training zone.
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.
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 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.
