1.2
SETUP
Read the Operation Manual before setting up the Life Fitness Treadmill. Place the treadmill
where it will be used before beginning the setup procedure.
ELECTRICAL POWER REQUIREMENTS
The Life Fitness Treadmill is intended for use on a normal 120-Volt electrical circuit in the United
States and Canada. The following table provides the current rating for this product based on
supply voltage. Make sure that this treadmill model supports the proper line voltage for the
installation location before plugging it into the outlet.
GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS
This Life Fitness product must be properly grounded. If the unit malfunctions or breaks down,
proper grounding provides a path of least resistance for the electric current, which reduces the
risk of shock to anyone touching or using the equipment. Each unit is equipped with an electrical
cord, which includes an equipment grounding conductor and a grounding plug. The plug must
be inserted into an outlet that has been properly installed and grounded in accordance with all
local codes and ordinances.
A temporary adapter MUST NOT BE USED to connect this plug to a two-pole receptacle in North America. If a properly grounded, 20-amp outlet is not available, one must
be installed by a qualified electrician. Models drawing 16 amps or more must be
installed on a dedicated line.
IL EST ABSOLUMENT INTERDIT d'employer un adaptateur temporaire pour brancher
cette fiche sur une prise à deux pôles en Amérique du Nord. Si aucune prise de 20 A
correctement mise à la terre n'est disponible, il convient d'en faire installer une par
un électricien qualifié. Les modèles utilisant 16 A ou plus doivent être installés sur
des lignes qui leur sont réservées.
DANGER: A risk of electrical shock may result from improper connection of the
equipment-grounding conductor. Check with a qualified electrician if in doubt as to
proper grounding technique. DO NOT modify the plug provided with the product. If it
will not fit an electrical outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
Un branchement incorrect du conducteur de mise à la terre peut entraîner des risques de
décharge électrique. Consultez un électricien si des doutes subsistent quant à la technique de mise à la terre. NE MODIFIEZ PAS la fiche fournie avec l'appareil. Si elle ne
s'adapte pas à une prise, faites en installer une correcte par un électricien qualifié.
10
WAX BAG INSTRUCTIONS
To install the wax bag, turn the power off at the ON/OFF switch, and unplug the unit from the
electrical outlet.
Remove the access panel. Remove the two screws (A) securing the wax bag access panel
(B), located on the user left side of the unit. Remove the panel and set it aside.
Install the wax bag. Verify that the wax bag protective liner (C) is open and ready to receive the
wax bag (D). Remove the new wax bag from its packaging and carefully insert it into the access
hole. The wax bag hose faces the rear of the unit. Remove the two wingnuts (E) located just
inside the access hole. Align the mounting holes located in the wax bag flange with the two
wingnut studs (F). Secure the wax bag with the two wingnuts.
CAUTION: Be careful to not rip or damage the wax bag on the wingnuts or
wingnut studs when inserting the new wax bag.
MISE EN GARDE : lors de l'insertion du nouveau sac de cire, veillez à ne pas le
déchirer ou l'endommager sur les écrous papillon ou sur leurs goujons.
Attach the hose clamp. Slide the hose clamp (G) over the end of
the wax bag outlet hose (H). Position the clamp approximately
three inches from the end of the hose and engage it, clamping it
(1) onto the wax bag hose to prevent spillage.
Connect the wax bag hose to the pump inlet hose. Cut the end
of the wax bag hose one half-inch from the end. Slide it onto the
barbed nozzle on the wax pump inlet hose (J). Be sure to fully seat
the wax bag hose onto the inlet hose. Release the hose clamp (2).
CAUTION: Failure to release the hose clamp greatly shortens belt life.
MISE EN GARDE : la bride de serrage doit être relâchée sous peine de réduire de
façon importante la durée de vie du tapis.
Replace the access panel. Replace the wax bag access panel, and secure it with the two
screws.

HOW
TO
POSITION AND STABILIZE
THE
LIFE FITNESS TREADMILL
Following all safety instructions in Section 1.1, move the
treadmill to the location in which it will be used. See
Section 7, titled Specifications, for the dimensions of the
footprint. Allow a distance of eight inches, or 21 centimeters, between the treadmill and other units on either side.
Allow a distance of six feet, or two meters, from the rear
of the treadmill to any object or surface.
After placing the unit where it will be used, check its stability. If there is even a slight rocking
motion or the unit is not stable, determine which stabilizing leg is not resting on the floor. To
adjust, loosen the JAM NUT (A), and turn the STABILIZING LEG (B) until the rocking motion
ceases, and both stabilizing legs rest firmly on the floor. Retighten the JAM NUT.
NOTE: It is extremely important that the stabilizing leg be correctly adjusted for proper operation. An unbalanced unit may cause striding belt misalignment.
POWER SWITCH
Located on the front panel at the base of the treadmill, the ON/OFF switch has two positions:
"I" (one) for ON and "0" (zero) for OFF.
SETTING
THE
CLOCK
The unit contains a clock, which is used for system maintenance and event tracking.
After the unit has been turned on†, the display will prompt for the following:
"Would you like to change the clock from GMT to local time - if YES press Enter - if NO press
Clear"
It is not mandatory to change the clock setting. To accept the current settings, press the CLEAR
key.
To change the setting, press the ENTER key. The MESSAGE CENTER displays: “CHOOSE
DISPLAY MODE - 12 HOUR MODE AM PM”. Use an ARROW key to toggle the setting to
CHOOSE DISPLAY MODE - 24 HOUR MODE. To accept the mode, press the ENTER key.
The current time (in Greenwich Mean Time) will be displayed.
•
Use the TIME arrows to change the hours
•
Use the INCLINE arrows to change the minutes
•
Use the SPEED arrows to change the seconds
When finished press the ENTER key. The MESSAGE CENTER displays “UPDATING CLOCK”.
At this point, the clock has been reset, and the normal startup procedure continues.
This prompt appears for the first five times that the unit is turned on, including power-ups at the
factory.
†
12
CENTERING
THE
BELT
After installing and levelling the treadmill, check the belt to ensure that it is tracking properly.
First, plug the power cord into an appropriate outlet. See Electrical Requirements at the beginning of this section for details. Then, turn the treadmill ON.
Have one person stand on the platforms on either side of the treadmill belt. Do not stand on the
belt at this time. Press the QUICK START key, and increase the speed to 4.0 miles per hour
(MPH), or 6.4 kilometers per hour (KPH), using the SPEED UP arrow.
If the striding belt moves to the right while it is running, have a second person turn the right tension bolt a quarter-turn clockwise, and then turn the left tension bolt (A) a quarter-turn counterclockwise. See the illustration below. This action sets the striding belt tracking back to center of
the roller.
If the striding belt moves to the left, turn the left tension bolt a quarter-turn clockwise and then
turn the right tension bolt a quarter-turn counter-clockwise to start the striding belt tracking back
to center of roller.
Repeat these adjustments until striding belt appears centered. Allow the belt to continue running
for several minutes to be sure that the tracking is stabilized.
NOTE: Do not exceed one full turn of the adjusting screws in either direction. If, after one full
turn, the belt does not track properly, contact Customer Support Services. The phone numbers
are listed in Section 6.7, titled How to Obtain Product Service.
13
SMART STOP BELT STOP SYSTEM
TM
The Smart StopTM belt stop system senses that a user is standing on the belt. If the user steps
off while the striding belt is in motion, the system automatically pauses the workout. During the
FIT TEST, the workout is aborted. To continue the workout, press the ENTER key.
FITNESS NETWORKING
The two interchangeable networking ports (A) are located on the back of the display console.
These openly accessible ports allow the treadmill to be connected to a fitness entertainment
system and/or a fitness network, such as FitLinxx®.
14
•
Networking: The built-in networking ports allow the unit to exchange workout
information with a fitness network database.
•
Fitness Entertainment: The built-in network ports allow the treadmill to power a
third-party receiver for use with an entertainment system, such as the Cardio Theater®
system or BroadcastVisionTM.
POWER CORD ROUTING
The power cord can be run straight from the treadmill, shortened and exited out the user-front
left side, or run under the frame and exited out the user right-rear side of the treadmill.
For efficient cord management, the following routing options are recommended:
With the power cord unplugged, insert the clips in the appropriate holes. See the illustration
below. Use Hole Pattern 1 or 2 to locate the clips and secure the power cord with the clips,
taking up any slack between clips.
NOTE: It may be necessary to tip the treadmill to route the power cord properly.
To plug the power cord into an outlet in front of the treadmill, use Hole Pattern 1 for outlets
located at the front of the machine.
To plug the power cord into an outlet in rear of the treadmill, use Hole Pattern 2 for outlets
located at the rear of the machine.
Make sure that there is a 6-foot clearance behind the treadmill. Contact Life Fitness Customer
Service for a longer power cord if necessary.
WARNING: Insure that the power cord (A) does not contact the striding belt or
get pinched between the frame (C), lift arm (B) or the wheel; failure to follow this
warning may result in serious injury.
AVERTISSEMENT : assurez-vous que le cordon d'alimentation n'entre pas en
contact avec le tapis et ne soit pas pincé entre le cadre, le bras de levage ou
la roue. Le non respect de cet avertissement peut provoquer de graves blessures.

HEART RATE ZONE TRAINING® EXERCISE
WHY HEART RATE ZONE TRAINING® EXERCISE?
Research shows that maintaining a specific heart rate while exercising is the optimal way to
monitor the intensity of a workout and to achieve maximum results. That is the idea behind the
Life Fitness Heart Rate Zone Training® approach to exercise.
Zone Training identifies an exerciser's ideal heart rate range, or zone, for burning fat or
increasing cardiovascular fitness. The zone is a percentage of the theoretical maximum†, and its
value depends on the workout. The Life Fitness Treadmill features five exclusive workouts
designed to take full advantage of the benefits of Heart Rate Zone Training+ exercise:
• FAT BURN
• CARDIO
• HEART RATE HILLTM
• HEART RATE INTERVALTM
• EXTREME HEART RATETM
Each workout offers different benefits, as discussed in Section 4, titled The Workouts.
NOTE: Consulting a fitness trainer is recommended for defining specific fitness goals and
designing a workout program.
To change the target heart rate during a workout, switch between these programs, or simply
enter a new target heart rate, using the NUMERIC keypad.
The Heart Rate Zone Training® workout programs measure heart rate. Wear the optional
telemetry chest strap, or grip the LifepulseTM sensors, to enable the treadmill’s on-board computer to monitor the heart rate during a workout. The computer automatically adjusts the incline
level to maintain the target heart rate based on the actual heart rate.
Defined by the American College of Sports Medicine's "Guidelines for Exercise Testing and
Prescription" as equal to 220 minus an individual’s age.

3.2
HEART RATE MONITORING
THE LIFEPULSETM SYSTEM
To use the treadmill’s LifepulseTM system to check the hear rate during a workout, grasp the
stainless steel sensors on the handlebars. Two sensors are located on each of the handlebars.
Contact must be maintained with all four sensors to obtain a heart rate. The console displays a
heart rate within 20 to 30 seconds of contact with the sensors.
Do not attempt to grasp the sensors at speeds above 4.5 MPH, or 7.2 KPH. For these speeds,
the use of a heart rate chest strap is recommended.
THE OPTIONAL HEART RATE CHEST STRAP
The Life Fitness Treadmill is equipped with Polar® telemetry, a heart rate monitoring system
in which electrodes, pressed against the skin, transfer heart rate signals to the treadmill
console. These electrodes are attached to a chest strap that the user wears during the workout. The
chest strap is optional. To order it, call Life Fitness Customer Support Services at 1-800-351-3737.
See the diagram below for correct positioning of the strap. The electrodes (A), which are the two
grooved surfaces on the underside of the strap, must remain wet to transmit accurately the electrical impulses of the heart back to the receiver. Moisten the electrodes. Then, secure the strap
as high under the chest muscles as possible. The strap should be snug, but comfortable enough
to allow for normal breathing.
The transmitter strap delivers an optimal heart rate reading when the electrodes are in direct
contact with bare skin. However, it functions properly through a thin layer of wet clothing.
If it becomes necessary to re-moisten the chest strap electrodes, grasp the center of the strap,
pull it away from the chest to expose the two electrodes, and re-moisten them.

THE WORKOUTS
WORKOUT OVERVIEWS
The following workouts are preprogrammed for the Life Fitness Treadmill.
QUICK START is the fastest way to begin exercising. After the QUICK START key is pressed, a
MANUAL workout begins immediately.
FAT BURN is a low-intensity workout for burning the body’s fat reserves. The user wears a heart rate
chest strap, or grasps the LifepulseTM sensors continuously. The program adjusts the intensity level,
based on the actual heart rate, to maintain the rate at 65 percent of the theoretical maximum†.
CARDIO is a higher intensity workout for more fit users, emphasizing cardiovascular benefits
and maximum fat burning. The user wears a heart rate chest strap, or grasps the LifepulseTM
sensors continuously. The program adjusts the intensity level, based on the actual heart rate, to
maintain the rate at 80 percent of the theoretical maximum.
HILL is an interval training workout. Intervals are periods of intense aerobic exercise separated
by regular periods of lower-intensity exercise.
RANDOM is an interval training workout of constantly changing intensity levels that occur in no
regular pattern or progression.
MANUAL is a workout in which the intensity level does not change automatically.
CUSTOM PLUSTM workouts are accessed through the CUSTOM PLUS key. These include the
pre-programmed CALORIES GOAL and DISTANCE GOAL workouts, as well as up to six custom workouts, which may be programmed by a fitness club manager or other authorized staff.
SPORT TRAININGTM (5K) is a distance-goal workout that simulates an actual terrain with varying incline levels. It is designed to assist runners in training for a 5-kilometer, or
3.1-mile, race.
SPORT TRAININGTM (10K) is a distance-goal workout that simulates an actual terrain with varying
incline levels. It is designed to assist runners in training for a 10-kilometer, or 6.2-mile, race.
HEART RATE HILLTM takes the user through three different hills based on the target heart rate.*
HEART RATE INTERVALTM alternates between a hill and a valley based on the target heart rate.
EXTREME HEART RATE TM is an intense workout for more experienced users. It is designed to
get the heart rate up and down as quickly as possible.
FIT TEST is a five-minute workout with which the user can measure cardiovascular fitness
compared to other people of the same age and gender.
Defined by the American College of Sports Medicine's "Guidelines for Exercise Testing and
Prescription" as equal to 220 minus an individual’s age.
†
* Target Heart Rate (THR) is a percentage of the theoretical maximum. A 40-year-old user's THR
for the HEART RATE HILL workout is 144, or 80 percent of the maximum; so the equation would
be (220-40)*.80=144.
22
MILITARY FITNESS TESTS are similar to FIT TEST workouts, except that these programs set
distance goals instead of time goals. The three tests are:
• ARMY PHYSICAL FITNESS TEST (PFT)
• NAVY PHYSICAL READINESS TEST (PRT)
• MARINES PHYSICAL FITNESS TEST (PFT)

4.3
WORKOUT DESCRIPTIONS
QUICK START
QUICK START is the fastest way to begin exercising. After the QUICK START key is pressed, a
MANUAL workout begins. The incline level is set to zero by default. Change the level using the
INCLINE ARROW key, or change the speed using the SPEED key, as desired. Or, use the
NUMERIC keypad to change these values.
FAT BURN
The FAT BURN workout is designed to maintain a user’s heart rate at 65 percent of the theoretical
maximum† for optimal results. Throughout the workout, the user wears a chest strap or grasps the
LifepulseTM sensors. If the user is not wearing a chest strap, the WORKOUT PROFILE WINDOW
displays a heart shape, and the MESSAGE CENTER displays a prompt to grasp the sensors.
The console continuously monitors and displays the heart rate, adjusting the intensity level of the
treadmill to reach and maintain the target*. This system eliminates over- and under-training, and it
maximizes the aerobic benefits of exercise by using the body's fat stores for fuel.
CARDIO
The CARDIO workout is virtually identical to FAT BURN; however the target heart rate is calculated at 80 percent of the theoretical maximum. The higher target promotes cardiovascular
improvement by placing a heavier workload on the heart muscle.
NOTE: Change the target heart rate at any time by using the NUMERIC KEYPAD.
USING TIME
IN
ZONE GOAL
The Time in Zone Goal program, a feature of Heart Rate Zone Training®, enhances FAT BURN and
CARDIO workouts by setting a duration for staying within the target zone as the workout goal. Once
the duration objective is met, the workout goes into a cool-down phase. To use this feature:
1. Press the CUSTOM PLUS key repeatedly until the MESSAGE CENTER displays
TIME IN ZONE GOAL. Then, press ENTER.
2. Enter weight.
3. Select the duration for staying within the zone.
4. Select either the FAT BURN or CARDIO workout.
5. Enter age.
6. Accept or change the target heart rate displayed by the MESSAGE CENTER.
7. Enter speed.
8. Begin the workout.
Defined by the American College of Sports Medicine's "Guidelines for Exercise Testing and

†
* Target Heart Rate (THR) is a percentage of the theoretical maximum. For example, a
40-year-old user's THR for the FAT BURN workout is 117. The FAT BURN workout targets
65 percent of the maximum, so the equation would be (220-40)*.65=117.
24
HILL
The Life Fitness-patented HILL workout offers a variety of configurations for interval training. Intervals
are periods of intense cardiovascular exercise separated by regular periods of lower-intensity exercise. The WORKOUT PROFILE window represents these high and low intervals as columns of light,
which together have the appearance of hills and valleys. The computerized interval training workout
has been scientifically demonstrated to promote greater cardiorespiratory improvement than steadypace training.
The HILL workout goes through four phases, each marked by different intensity levels. The WORKOUT PROFILE window displays the progress of these phases. As noted in the descriptions below,
the heart rate should be measured at two stages in the workout to gauge its effectiveness. Wear the
chest strap or continuously grip the LifepulseTM handles. The MESSAGE CENTER does not display a
request for a heart rate measurement, as it does with CARDIO and FAT BURN.
1
Warm-up is a phase of low, gradually rising resistance, which brings the heart rate into the
lower end of the target zone and increases respiration and blood flow to working muscles.
2
Plateau increases the intensity slightly, and keeps it steady, to bring the heart rate to the low
end of the target zone. Check the heart rate at the end of this phase.
3
Interval Training is a series of increasingly steeper hills, alternating with valleys, or stints of
recovery. The heart rate should rise to the high end of the target zone. Check the heart rate
at the end of this phase.
4
Cool-down is a low-intensity phase that allows the body to begin removing lactic acid, and
other exercise by-products, which build up in muscles and contribute to soreness.
Each column, as seen in the WORKOUT PROFILE WINDOW and the chart above, represents
one interval. The overall duration of the workout determines the length of each interval. Each
workout is made up of 20 intervals, so the duration of each interval is equal to the duration of
the entire workout divided by 20.
1 to 9 minutes: A workout with a duration of less than 10 minutes is insufficient for the HILL
program to complete all four phases adequately. The program, therefore, condenses a workout
of this duration at various stages.
25
10 to 19 minutes: The interval durations initially are set at 30 seconds for a 10-minute workout.
For every minute over 10, each interval increases by three seconds. A 15-minute workout
consists of 20 intervals at 45 seconds each.
20 to 99 minutes: All intervals last 60 seconds. If the user adds minutes to the pre-set duration
while the workout is in progress, the program adds hills and valleys that are identical to the first
eight intervals of the Interval Training phase. This pattern repeats until the workout is completed.
RANDOM
The RANDOM program creates a terrain of hills and valleys that varies with each workout. More
than one million different patterns are possible.
MANUAL
The MANUAL program sets an intensity level that does not change automatically. While the workout is in progress, increase or lower the intensity level as desired, using the SPEED and/or
INCLINE ARROW keys or the NUMERIC KEYPAD.
SPORT TRAININGTM
This distance-goal workout is designed for runners training for races. The program creates realistic
terrains by setting different incline levels throughout the course. Incline grades depend on the difficulty levels selected during the workout setup. A 1.5 percent incline grade, which is the baseline
level, simulates a flat running surface. A zero percent grade simulates running downhill. Incline
durations range between 30 and 60 seconds. The course ends when the distance goal is met.
Two Sport TrainingTM programs are available on the treadmill:
•
SPORT TRAININGTM (5K) is a 5-kilometer, or 3.1-mile, course.
•
SPORT TRAININGTM (10K) is a 10-kilometer, or 6.2-mile, course.
HEART RATE HILLTM
This program combines the standard HILL workout profile with the concept of Heart Rate Zone
Training. The default target heart rate* is calculated as 80 percent of the theoretical maximum†,
but the user can adjust the target rate during the workout setup. The workout consists of three
hills that target three heart rate goals: The first hill brings the heart rate to 90 percent of the target rate. The second hill increases the rate to 95 percent. The third hill matches the target heart
rate. The valley always is defined as 85 percent of the target.
After a standard three-minute warm-up, the workout progresses toward the first hill and heart rate
goal. Once the user reaches 90 percent of the target heart rate, the hill continues for one minute.
When the minute expires, the level decreases into a valley. Once the user's heart rate falls to 85
percent of the target, the valley continues for one minute. Then, the next hill begins with its corresponding heart rate goal. After the user completes the third hill/valley pair, the program returns to the
first hill and repeats the cycle as long as the duration allows. At the end of the duration, the workout
goes into a cool-down phase. If the heart rate goes above the theoretical maximum for more then

†
* Target Heart Rate (THR) is a percentage of the theoretical maximum. A 40-year-old user's THR
for the HEART RATE HILL workout is 144, or 80 percent of the maximum; so the equation would
be (220-40)*.80=144.
26
45 seconds, the treadmill automatically goes into pause mode. If the user does not reach a heart
rate goal after five minutes, the MESSAGE CENTER displays a prompt to increase or decrease
speed, depending on whether the workout is in a hill or valley phase. The program does not proceed
to a new heart rate goal until the user reaches the current goal.

This program also combines the standard HILL workout profile with the concept of Heart Rate
Zone Training. The default target heart rate* is calculated as 80 percent of the theoretical maximum†, but the user can adjust the target rate during the workout setup. The workout alternates
between a hill, which brings the heart rate up to the target rate, and a valley, which brings the heart
rate down to 90 percent of the target. After a standard three-minute warm-up, the workout progresses
toward the first hill and heart rate goal. Once the goal is reached, the hill continues for three minutes.
Then, the level decreases into a valley. Once the 90 percent goal is reached, the valley continues for
three minutes, after which the next hill begins. The user's fitness level determines the number of hills
and valleys encountered within the duration. At the end of the duration, the workout goes into a cooldown phase. If the heart rate goes above the theoretical maximum† for more then 45 seconds,
the treadmill automatically goes into pause mode. If the user does not reach a heart rate goal after
five minutes, the MESSAGE CENTER displays a prompt to increase or decrease speed, depending
on whether the workout is in a hill or valley phase. The program does not proceed to a new heart
rate goal until the user reaches the current goal.

28
EXTREME HEART RATE
TM
This intense, varied workout is designed to help more experienced users to break through fitness
improvement plateaus. The workout alternates between two target heart rates* as quickly as possible. The effect is similar to that of running sprints. The user must wear a chest strap or grip the
LifepulseTM sensors throughout the workout.
NOTE: It is recommended that users who run at speeds faster than 4.5 MPH wear the chest strap
and do not use the LifepulseTM sensors.
When setting up the workout, the user enters a target heart rate and selects a walk speed and a
jog speed. After a standard three-minute warm-up, the treadmill accelerates to the jog speed,
and the incline increases, until the user reaches the target heart rate goal. That target rate is
maintained for a stabilizing period. Then, the incline is reduced to 0 percent, and the treadmill
slows to the walk speed. When the heart rate falls to the 75 percent goal, it is maintained there
for a stabilizing period. The program repeats the alternating of speeds and incline levels, continuing this pattern throughout the duration.
If the user does not reach a heart rate goal after five minutes, the MESSAGE CENTER displays
a prompt to increase or decrease speed, depending on whether the workout is in a hill or valley
phase. The program does not proceed to a new heart rate goal until the user reaches the current goal.

User Example (40 year old / 153 recommended THR)
* Target Heart Rate (THR) is a percentage of the theoretical maximum. For example, a
40-year-old user's THR for the EXTREME HEART RATETM WORKOUT is 153. The workout
program targets a standard 85 percent of the maximum, so the equation would be
(220-40)*.85=153.
* The FITNESS TEST design is based on a published study: Ebbeling, Cara B.; Puleo, Elane
M.; Ward, Ann; Widrick, Jeffrey, and Rippe, James M. "Development of a Single Stage
Submaximal Treadmill Walking Test:” University of Massachusetts Medical Center, 1991
29
DISTANCE GOAL
This workout is designed to build endurance. The objective is to cover a certain distance in
miles. Once the objective is met, the workout automatically goes into a cool-down phase, and
ends afterward.
Note: When a user sets this goal with the TIME ARROW keys, the console displays the values
in .10-mile increments.
CALORIES GOAL
This workout is designed to promote weight loss and weight control. The objective is to burn a
certain number of calories in the selected time duration. Once the objective is met, the workout
automatically goes into a cool-down phase, and ends afterward.
CUSTOM WORKOUTS
The treadmill console stores up to six custom workouts. These workouts are created by fitness
club managers or other authorized personnel. For information on creating these workouts, see
the topic titled Programming Custom Workouts in Section 5, titled The Manager’s Configuration.
To use custom workouts, press the CUSTOM PLUS button repeatedly until the MESSAGE CENTER displays CUSTOM WORKOUTS. Then, press ENTER. The MESSAGE CENTER displays
a prompt to select a custom workout number, ranging from 1 to 6. Using the ARROW keys or
the NUMERIC keypad, select the number and press ENTER. If a workout has not been created
for that number, the MESSAGE CENTER simply scrolls to the next number. If a workout has
been been created for the selected number, the MESSAGE CENTER displays successive
prompts to enter the weight and choose a speed. After these entries are provided, the workout
begins.
FIT TEST
The FIT TEST workout measures cardiovascular fitness and can be used to monitor improvements in endurance every four to six weeks. The user must wear the heart rate chest strap, as
the test score calculation is based on a heart rate reading. The five-minute workout begins with
a 60-second warm-up, followed by four minutes of constant effort. Immediately afterward, the
console takes the user’s heart rate reading, calculates a fitness score, and displays the score in
the MESSAGE CENTER.
The FIT TEST is considered to be a submax VO2 (volume of oxygen) test*. It gauges how well
the heart supplies oxygenated blood to the exercising muscles, and how efficiently those muscles receive oxygen from the blood. Physicians and exercise physiologists generally regard this
test as a good measure of aerobic capacity. Please note that the estimated VO2 max scores
achieved will be 10 percent to15 percent higher on other Life Fitness cardiovascular equipment
than those achieved on a stationary cycle. Stationary cycling has a higher rate of isolated muscle fatigue of the quadriceps when compared to walking/running on the treadmill or climbing on
the treadmill. This higher rate of fatigue corresponds to lower levels of estimated VO2 max
scores.
30
The rate of pedaling or stepping is often difficult to control. Treadmill speed and incline, however, can be regulated precisely. Unlike cycling or stepping, walking is a natural, habitual activity.
Most people become accustomed to walking on a treadmill within two minutes.
NOTE: If the FIT TEST heart rate is lower than 60 percent of the theoretical maximum† heart
rate, the user will be instructed to perform the FIT TEST again at a faster belt speed.
To set up the test, press the FIT TEST key. When the MESSAGE CENTER displays FIT TEST,
press ENTER. At the MESSAGE CENTER prompts, enter the weight, age, gender, and desired
speed, using the ARROW keys or the NUMERIC keypad, pressing ENTER after each entry.
Then, begin the workout. To ensure an accurate test score, do not change entries once the
workout begins.
This table lists general fitness level categories.
BEGINNER
2.0 MPH / 3.2 KPH
INTERMEDIATE
3.0, 4.0 MPH / 4.8, 6.4 KPH
ADVANCED
4.5 MPH / 7.2 KPH
The treadmill does not accept:
•
heart rates less than 52 or greater than 200 beats per minute
•
body weights less than 75 pounds (34 kg) or greater than 400 pounds (180 kg)
•
ages below 10 or over 99 years
•
data input that exceeds human potential
To correct errors when entering FIT TEST data, pressing CLEAR / PAUSE, input the correct
information, and press ENTER.
It is important to take the FIT TEST under similar circumstances each time. A heart rate is affected by many factors, including:
•
amount of sleep the previous night; at least seven hours is recommended
•
time of day
•
time since last meal; two to four hours after the last meal is recommended
•
time since last drinking a liquid containing caffeine or alcohol, or smoking a cigarette; at
least four hours is recommended (Life Fitness does not recommend or condone use of
alcohol or tobacco products).
•
time since last exercise; at least six hours is recommended
For the most accurate results, perform the FIT TEST on three consecutive days, and average
the three scores.
NOTE: To receive a proper Fit Test score, the work done must be within a training heart rate
zone that is 60 percent to 85 percent of the theoretical maximum heart rate. This rate is defined
by the American College of Sports Medicine's "Guidelines for Exercise Testing and Prescription"
as equal to 220 minus an individual’s age.

MILITARY FITNESS TESTS
The Life Fitness Treadmill features Army and Navy Physical Readiness Tests (PRTs) and the
Marines Physical Fitness Test (PFT). These tests are similar to the FIT TEST workout, except
that each has a preset distance goal.
•
ARMY PRT: 2.0 miles
•
NAVY PRT: 1.5 miles
•
MARINES PFT: 3.0 miles
Scores for these tests are based on finishing time, age, and gender.
32
To set up one of these tests, press the FIT TEST key repeatedly, until the MESSAGE CENTER
displays the name of the desired test. Then, press ENTER. If the selected test is either the
NAVY or MARINES test, the MESSAGE CENTER displays a question as to whether the test is
taking place below a certain altitude. For the NAVY test, the altitude is 5,000 feet above sea
level; and for the MARINES test, the altitude is 4,500 feet above sea level. Using the ARROW
KEYS, select the answer YES or NO by toggling between these words displayed in the MESSAGE CENTER. Press Enter.
At the MESSAGE CENTER prompts, enter the weight, age, gender, and desired speed, using the
ARROW keys or the NUMERIC keypad. Press ENTER after each entry. Then, begin the workout.
To ensure an accurate test score, do not change these entries once the workout begins.
After the distance goal is reached, the workout program goes into a cool-down. The duration of
this phase depends on the amount of time taken to complete the test. For less than five minutes,
the cool-down is one minute. For five to 15 minutes, the cool-down is three minutes. For longer
times, the cool-down is five minutes. The user can abort the cool-down by pressing the STOP button or the CLEAR key. After the cool-down is aborted or completed, the MESSAGE CENTER displays the finishing time and a point score for the Army and Marines tests, or a qualititative score,
such as EXCELLENT, for the Navy test.

LIFE FITNESS TREADMILL
SELECTING A LEVEL
The steps for setting up a HILL or RANDOM workout include selecting a level. The word “level”
refers to a range of incline percentages. The treadmill features 20 levels, with Level 1 having the
lowest average incline grade and Level 20 having the highest.

9.0 - 15.0
Within each level are seven incline percentages, or hills. During a workout, each hill appears in
the WORKOUT PROFILE window as rows of light stacked in a column. The number of lit rows
within a column corresponds to an incline percentage. For example, in Level 5, the lowest
incline is 0.0 percent and is represented as one lit row. The highest incline, 4.3 percent, is represented by a column with all seven rows lit.
33
In the HILL and RANDOM workouts, these varying hills occur for equal durations, as discussed
in the HILL workout description. It is possible to change the incline percentage manually, but the
change remains in effect only for the duration of the hill in question. When the workout program
brings up a new hill, the incline percentage changes automatically to match that hill.
To change levels during a workout, use the ARROW keys or the NUMERIC keypad.
USING INSTAPACETM FEEDBACK
The InstaPaceTM Feedback feature enables users to monitor their pace, or rate of minutes
per mile, while running on the treadmill. This feature must be enabled in the Manager’s
Configuration. See Section 5, titled The Manager’s Configuration, for more information. Also, the
treadmill speed must be at least 4.5 MPH. The MESSAGE CENTER displays the MPH and
pace simultaneously when the user adjusts the treadmill speed with the ARROW KEYS. If the
user adjusts the speed using the NUMERIC keypad, the MESSAGE CENTER displays the pace
after the treadmill reaches the new speed.
USING ZEROUTTM SPEED CONTROL
If, during a workout, a user decreases the speed to the minimum and continues to hold the
DECREASE SPEED ARROW, the speed falls to 0 MPH, which is pause mode. The minimum
speed is 0.5 MPH, unless changed in the Manager’s Configuration. See section 5.2, titled
Configuration Settings, for more information.
COOL-DOWN
Life Fitness' unique Cool-Down Protocol automatically customizes every cool-down based on
each user's workout performance. Workout performance factors, such as speed, incline, duration, and heart rate, determine the duration and intensity of the cool-down.
DIMMING
The dimming feature controls the brightness of the treadmill console display. To change the
default brightness setting, press the CUSTOM PLUS button repeatedly until the MESSAGE
CENTER displays “DIMMING,” and press ENTER. Then, use the ARROW keys to increase or
decrease the brightness to the desired setting, and press ENTER to save the new setting; or
press CLEAR to revert to the default brightness setting.
If a new brightness setting is selected for a workout, that setting remains in place until it is manually changed, or the workout concludes. When a new workout begins, the brightness reverts to
the default setting.

HOW
TO
ADJUST AND TENSION
THE
STRIDING BELT
Do not move treadmill or place hands under treadmill while it is plugged into an electrical outlet!
THE BELT TENSIONING BOLTS
A 5/16-inch hex key wrench is required for this task. The Life Fitness Treadmill has access holes
in the rear roller guards which allow access to the tensioning bolts. These tensioning bolts make
it possible to adjust the tracking and centering of the striding belt (A) without removing the
guards.
NOTE: It is extremely important that the treadmill be correctly leveled prior to any tracking
adjustments. An unstable unit may cause striding belt misalignment. See the topic titled "How To
Stabilize the Life Fitness Treadmill" in the Section 1.2, titled Set Up, prior to attempting any rear
roller adjustments.
Before proceeding, it is helpful to visualize the REAR ROLLER (B) pivot point (C). Each adjustment made to one side of the ROLLER must be met with an equal and opposite adjustment (D)
to the other side of the ROLLER to maintain an ideal belt tension at the pivot point.
TRACKING (CENTERING) A STRIDING BELT
Two people are needed to perform this procedure.
1
Locate the two access holes to the belt tensioning bolts on each of the rear roller guards.
2
One person stands on the side rails of the treadmill and straddles the belt. This person
presses the MANUAL workout and sets the belt speed to 4.0 MPH (6.4 KPH).
3
If the striding belt has moved to the right, the second person turns the right tension bolt a
quarter-turn clockwise and then turns the left tension bolt a quarter-turn counter-clockwise to
make the striding belt track back to the center of the roller.
If the striding belt has moved to the left, turn the left tension bolt a quarter-turn clockwise
and then turn the right tension bolt a quarter-turn counter-clockwise to make the striding belt
track back to the center of the roller.
4
Repeat the adjustments until the striding belt appears centered. Allow the machine to continue running for several minutes to observe if tracking remains stabilized.
NOTE: Do not exceed one full turn of the adjusting screws in either direction. If after one full
turn the belt does not track properly, contact Customer Support Services. The phone numbers
are listed in Section 6.7, titled How to Obtain Product Service.
42
TENSIONING AN EXISTING STRIDING BELT
1
Enter the Manual workout and run the treadmill for five minutes at 5.0 MPH (8.0 KPH).
NOTE: DO NOT RUN ON BELT.
2
Reduce the speed to 2.0 MPH (3.2 KPH). Walk on the treadmill. Tightly grip the handrails
and attempt to stall the striding belt. If the belt slips, continue to Step 3. If it does not slip,
the tension is correct.
3
Using the STOP key, stop the treadmill. Turn the belt tensioning bolts a quarter-turn clockwise for each side. Do not exceed one full turn (four quarter turns) per side.
4
Enter the MANUAL workout and run the treadmill at 2.0 MPH (3.2 KPH) check to insure
proper tracking. If the striding belt drifts to the left or right see the topic titled Tracking
(Centering) an Existing or New Striding Belt on the previous page.
Do not over-tighten the tensioning bolts while making belt adjustments. Over-tightening of bolts
may over stretch and damage the striding belt or roller bearings. Do not exceed one full turn of
either bolt in either direction.

6.6
CLEANING
THE
WAX NOZZLE
The MESSAGE CENTER periodically displays a wax reminder message, if the use if WAX
REMINDER setting is enabled in the MANAGER’S CONFIGURATION. When this message
appears, take the following steps:
A. Remove panel on right side to access nozzle (A).
B. Make sure that the unit is off, and the electrical plug has been removed from the wall.
C. Using a Phillips head screwdriver remove the two screws holding the right access panel in
place.
D. Carefully reach inside and while gently pushing the nozzle (A) into its brass holder body (C),
rotate the nozzle one-quarter turn clockwise. Make note of the orientation of the two flat surfaces on the top and bottom of the nozzle. When the nozzle is replaced after cleaning, the
flats must be on the top and bottom for nozzle to be correctly replaced.
D. Place nozzle in a container of hot water and let it sit for 10 minutes. Carefully remove nozzle. Water and nozzle will be hot.
CAUTION: If necessary, scrub with a medium soft bristle brush until there is no
further wax visible on the outside or inside of the nozzle.
Mise en garde. Si nécessaire, frottez la buse avec un brosse moyennement douce
jusqu’à ce que toute trace de cire ait disparue à l’intérieur comme à l’extérieur.
E. Dry nozzle with a lint free towel and reinsert with ¼ turn counterclockwise.

This Life Fitness Treadmill features exciting, new workout programs and features.
NEW WORKOUT PROGRAMS:
HEART RATE HILL, HEART RATE INTERVAL, and EXTREME HEART RATE combine the
interval training benefits of the standard HILL workout profile with Heart Rate Zone Training®,
which targets specific heart rate zones.
The ARMY PHYSICAL READINESS TEST, NAVY PHYSICAL READINESS TEST, and
MARINES PHYSICAL FITNESS TEST are distance-goal workout programs that provide
performance scores.
SPORT TRAINING simulates the experience of running on an outdoor terrain.
NEW FEATURES:
Custom Plus Programming Modifications include the ability to select a speed and an incline
grade for each interval.
Programming a Distance Goal in .10-mile increments: When a user sets up a DISTANCE
GOAL workout with the TIME ARROW keys, the MESSAGE CENTER displays the distance goal
values in .10-mile increments.
MaxTimeTM Control Option enables fitness club managers to set workout duration limits during
peak and non-peak hours of club traffic.
Standby Mode enables fitness club managers to set periods at which which the treadmill
automatically powers up or powers down.
ZerOutTM Speed Control: If, during a workout, a user decreases the speed to the minimum and
continues to hold the SPEED DOWN arrow, the speed falls to 0 MPH, which is pause mode.
InstaPaceTM Feedback enables users to monitor rate of minutes per mile, while running on the
treadmill.
NEW WORKOUTS
HEART RATE HILL WORKOUTTM
This workout consists of three hills that target three heart rate goals: The first hill brings the heart rate
to 90 percent of the target rate.* The second hill increases the rate to 95 percent. The third hill matches the target rate. The valley always is 85 percent of the target. The user must wear a chest strap or
grip the LifepulseTM sensors throughout the workout. After a three-minute warm-up, the workout
progresses toward the first hill and heart rate goal. Once the user reaches 90 percent of the target
rate, the hill continues for one minute. When the minute expires, the level decreases into a valley.
Once the user's heart rate falls to 85 percent of the target, the valley continues for one minute. Then,
the next hill begins with its corresponding heart rate goal. After the user completes the third hill/valley
pair, the program returns to the first hill and repeats the cycle as long as the duration allows. At the
end of the duration, the workout goes into a cool-down phase. If the heart rate goes above the theoretical maximum† for more then 45 seconds, the treadmill automatically goes into pause mode. If the
user does not reach a heart rate goal after five minutes, the MESSAGE CENTER displays a prompt
to increase or decrease speed, depending on whether the workout is in a hill or valley phase. The
program does not proceed to a new heart rate goal until the user reaches the current goal.

* Target Heart Rate (THR) is a percentage of the theoretical maximum. A 40-year-old user's THR for the HEART RATE HILL
workout is 144, or 80 percent of the maximum; so the equation would be (220-40)*.80=144.

Hill
This workout alternates between a hill, which brings the heart rate up to the target rate, and a
valley, which brings the heart rate down to 90 percent of the target. The user must wear a chest
strap or grip the LifepulseTM sensors throughout the workout. After a three-minute warm-up, the
workout progresses toward the first hill and heart rate goal. Once the goal is reached, the hill
continues for three minutes. Then, the level decreases into a valley. Once the 90 percent goal is
reached, the valley continues for three minutes, after which the next hill begins. The user's fitness level determines the number of hills and valleys encountered within the duration. At the
end of the duration, the workout goes into a cool-down phase. If the heart rate goes above the
theoretical maximum for more then 45 seconds, the treadmill automatically goes into pause
mode. If the user does not reach a heart rate goal after five minutes, the MESSAGE CENTER
displays a prompt to increase or decrease speed, depending on whether the workout is in a hill
or valley phase. The program does not proceed to a new heart rate goal until the user reaches
the current goal.

EXTREME HEART RATE WORKOUTTM
This intense, varied workout is designed to help more experienced users to break through fitness
improvement plateaus. The workout alternates between two target heart rates as quickly as possible. The effect is similar to that of running sprints. The user must wear a chest strap or grip the
LifepulseTM sensors throughout the workout.
NOTE: It is recommended that users who run at speeds faster than 4.5 MPH wear the chest
strap and do not use the LifepulseTM sensors.
When setting up the workout, the user enters a target heart rate and selects a walk speed and a
jog speed. After a standard three-minute warm-up, the treadmill accelerates to the jog speed,
and the incline increases, until the user reaches the target heart rate goal. That target rate is
maintained for a stabilizing period. Then, the incline is reduced to 0 percent, and the treadmill
slows to the walk speed. When the heart rate falls to the 75 percent goal, it is maintained there
for a stabilizing period. The program repeats the alternating of speeds and incline levels, continuing this pattern throughout the duration.
If the user does not reach a heart rate goal after five minutes, the MESSAGE CENTER displays a
prompt to increase or decrease speed, depending on whether the workout is in a hill or valley phase.
The program does not proceed to a new heart rate goal until the user reaches the current goal.

MILITARY FITNESS TESTS (9700HR
ONLY)
Each of these workouts has a preset distance goal.
• Army PRT: 2.0 miles
• Navy PRT: 1.5 miles
• Marines PFT: 3.0 miles
Scores for these tests are based on finishing time, age, and gender.
To set up one of these tests, press the FIT TEST key repeatedly, until the MESSAGE CENTER displays the name of the desired test. Then, press ENTER. If the selected test is either the Navy or
Marines test, the MESSAGE CENTER displays a question as to whether the test is taking place
below a certain altitude. For the Navy test, the altitude is 5,000 feet above sea level; and for the
Marines test, the altitude is 4,500 feet above sea level. Using the arrow keys, select the answer YES
or NO by toggling between these words displayed in the MESSAGE CENTER. Press ENTER.
At the MESSAGE CENTER prompts, enter the weight, age, gender, and desired speed, using the
ARROW keys or the NUMERIC keypad. Press ENTER after each entry. Then, begin the workout. To
ensure an accurate test score, do not change these entries once the workout begins. After the distance goal is reached, the workout program goes into a cool-down. The duration of this phase
depends on the amount of time taken to complete the test. For less than five minutes, the cooldown is one minute. For five to 15 minutes, the cool-down is three minutes. For longer times, the
cool-down is five minutes. The user can abort the cool-down by pressing the STOP button or the
CLEAR key. After the cool-down is aborted or completed, the MESSAGE CENTER displays the
finishing time and a point score for the Army and Marines tests, or a qualititative score, such as
EXCELLENT, for the Navy test.
SPORT TRAINING WORKOUTTM
This distance-goal workout is designed for runners training for races. The program creates realistic
terrains by setting different incline grades throughout the course. The difficulty of these grades
depends on the level selected during the workout setup. A 1.5 percent incline grade, which is the
baseline level, simulates a flat running surface. A zero percent grade simulates running downhill.
Incline durations range between 30 and 60 seconds. The course ends when the distance goal is
met. Two SPORT TRAININGTM programs are available on the treadmill:
• SPORT TRAININGTM (5K) is a 5-kilometer, or 3.1-mile, course.
• SPORT TRAININGTM (10K) is a 10-kilometer, or 6.2-mile, course.
NEW FEATURES
Custom Plus Programming Modifications - The Manager's Configuration provides new
features for creating custom workouts:
• When programming an interval workout, the user may select a speed and an incline
grade for each interval.
• Each interval is now identified by the time at which it occurs during the workout.
Programming a Distance Goal in .10-mile increments - When a user sets up a DISTANCE
GOAL workout with the TIME ARROW keys, the MESSAGE CENTER displays the distance goal
values in .10-mile increments.
MaxTimeTM Control Option - This feature enables fitness club managers to set workout duration
limits during peak and non-peak hours of club traffic. After entering the Manager's Configuration,
select the MAXTIME SETUP option. The MESSAGE CENTER displays the statement "MAXTIME CONTROL OFF" and then displays a maximum workout duration value. The default value
is 60 minutes, and it can be changed with the INCLINE or SPEED ARROW keys. This value is
always in effect unless the MaxtimeTM control feature is turned on. To turn the feature on, use
the INCLINE or SPEED ARROW keys, and switch the setting to MAXTIME CONTROL ON.
Then, press ENTER.
The MESSAGE CENTER displays a PEAK DURATION value, which is the maximum possible
workout duration, in minutes, during high-traffic hours. Use the ARROW keys or the NUMERIC
keypad to increase or decrease the displayed value, and press ENTER. The MESSAGE CENTER then displays a NON-PEAK DURATION value, which is the maximum possible workout
duration all other times. Use the ARROW keys or the NUMERIC keypad to increase or decrease
the displayed value, and press ENTER.
The MESSAGE CENTER then displays a PEAK 1 time period in hours and minutes. This is the
period during which the peak workout duration value is in force. Use the TIME ARROW keys to
change the hours, and use the INCLINE ARROW keys to change the minutes. Press ENTER.
The MESSAGE CENTER then displays the PEAK 1 duration value, which is the amount of time
in minutes that the peak period remains in force. Using the ARROW keys, change the value, and
press ENTER.
The MESSAGE CENTER then displays a PEAK 2 time period. Repeat the steps described in the
preceding paragraph to set up a second peak time.
Standby Mode - This feature enables fitness club managers to set periods at which the treadmill
automatically powers up or powers down. While in the Manager's Configuration, select the
STANDBY SETUP option. The MESSAGE CENTER displays the statement, STANDBY
DISABLED. Using the ARROW keys, switch the setting to ENABLED. The MESSAGE CENTER
displays an AUTO OFF value, which is the time of day, in hours and minutes, at which the treadmill automatically switches off. Use the TIME ARROW key to change the hours, and use the
INCLINE ARROW key to change the minutes. Press ENTER. The MESSAGE CENTER displays
an AUTO ON value, which is the time of day, in hours and minutes, at which the treadmill automatically switches on.
ZerOutTM Speed Control - If, during a workout, a user decreases the speed to the minimum and
continues to hold the SPEED DOWN arrow, the speed falls to 0 MPH, which is pause mode. The
minimum speed is 0.5 MPH, unless changed in the Manager's Configuration.
InstaPaceTM Feedback - This feature enables users to monitor pace, or rate of minutes per mile,
while running on the treadmill. It must be enabled in the Manager's Configuration. Also, the
treadmill speed must be at least 4.5 MPH. The MESSAGE CENTER displays the MPH and pace
simultaneously when the user adjusts the treadmill speed with the ARROW keys. If the user
adjusts the speed using the NUMERIC keypad, the MESSAGE CENTER displays the pace after
the treadmill reaches the new speed.
