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 treadmill.
1. It is the responsibility of the owner to ensure
that all users of this treadmill are adequately
informed of all warnings and precautions.
12. Failure to use a properly functioning surge
suppressor could result in damage to the control system of the treadmill. If the control system is damaged, the walking belt may change
speed or stop unexpectedly, which may result
in a fall and serious injury.
2. Use the treadmill only as described.
3. Place the treadmill on a level surface, with at
least eight feet of clearance behind it and two
feet on each side. Do not place the treadmill
on any surface that blocks air openings. To
protect the floor or carpet from damage, place
a mat under the treadmill.
13. Keep the power cord and the surge suppressor away from heated surfaces.
4. Keep the treadmill indoors, away from moisture and dust. Do not put the treadmill in a
garage or covered patio, or near water.
14. Never move the walking belt while the power
is turned off. Do not operate the treadmill if
the power cord or plug is damaged, or if the

OPERATION AND ADJUSTMENT
THE PERFORMANT LUBETM 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 treadmill is not compatible with
GFCI-equipped outlets.
Your treadmill features a walking belt coated with
PERFORMANT LUBETM, a 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 treadmill, 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 treadmill being damaged, always
use a surge suppressor with your treadmill (see
drawing 1 at the right). To purchase a surge suppressor, see your local PROFORM dealer or call
1-800-806-3651 and order part number 146148.

Grounded Outlet Box
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
treadmill. If the control system is damaged, the
walking belt may change speed or stop unexpectedly, which may result in a fall and serious injury.

Metal Screw
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

Insert the key fully into the console.
See HOW TO TURN ON THE POWER on page
11.
2
Select one of the personal trainer programs.
When the key
is inserted, the
manual mode
will be selected. To select a personal
trainer program, press the Program button repeatedly until
one of the four personal trainer program indicators
lights. When a personal trainer program is selected, the Time/Incline/Segment Time display will
flash the maximum incline setting for the program
for six seconds, and the Speed/Min-mile display
will flash the maximum speed setting.
When only three seconds remain in the first segment of the program, both the Current Segment
column and the column to the right will flash and a
tone will sound. In addition, if the speed and/or
incline of the treadmill is about to change, the
Speed/Min-mile display and/or the Time/Incline/
Segment Time display will flash to alert you, and
three tones will sound. When the first segment is
completed, all speed settings will move one column to the left. The speed setting for the second
segment will then be shown in the flashing
Current Segment column and the treadmill will automatically adjust to the speed and incline settings
for the second segment. Note: If all of the indicators in the Current Segment column are lit after the
speed settings have moved to the left, the speed
settings will move downward so that only the highest indicators appear in the LED matrix. If some of
the indicators in the Current Segment column are
not lit when the speed settings move to the left
again, the speed settings will move back up.
The four profiles on the right side of the console
show how the speed and incline of the treadmill
will change during the programs. The numbers
beside the profiles show the maximum speed and
incline settings for the programs.
The program display
will show the first four
speed settings for the
program. The Time/
Incline/Segment Time
display will show how
long the program will
last.
3
The program will continue in this way until the
speed setting for the last segment is shown in the
Current Segment column and no time remains in
the Time/Incline/Segment Time display. The walking belt will then slow to a stop.
If the speed or incline setting for the current
segment is too high or too low, you can manually
override the setting by pressing the Speed or
Incline buttons. Every few times one of the Speed
buttons is pressed, an additional indicator will light
or darken in the Current Segment column. If any of
the columns to the right of the Current Segment
column have the same number of lit indicators as
the Current Segment column, an additional indicator may light or darken in those columns as well.
Important: When the current segment of the
program ends, the treadmill will automatically
adjust to the speed and incline settings for the
next segment.
Press the Start button or the Speed ▲ button to
start the program.
A moment after the button is pressed, the treadmill will automatically adjust to the first speed and
incline settings for the program. Hold the handrails
and begin walking.
Each program is divided into several time segments of different lengths. (The Time/Incline/
Segment Time display will show both the time remaining in the program and the time remaining in
the current segment.) One speed setting and one
incline setting are programmed for each segment.
(The same speed setting and/or incline setting may

HOW TO USE HEART RATE PROGRAMS
CAUTION:
If you have heart problems, or if you are over 60 years of age and
have been inactive, do not use the heart rate
programs. If you are taking medication regularly, consult your physician to find whether the
medication will affect your exercise heart rate.
Follow your progress with the displays.
See step 5 on page 11.
5
Measure your heart rate if desired.
Follow the steps below to use a heart rate program.
Note: You must wear the optional chest pulse sensor (see page 21) to use a heart rate program.
See step 6 on page 12.
6
When the program is completed, remove the
key from the console.
1
When the program has ended, make sure that
the incline of the treadmill is at the lowest setting. Next, remove the key from the console and
put it in a safe place. Note: If the displays and
various indicators on the console remain lit
after the key is removed, the console is in the
“demo” mode. See page 21 and turn off the
demo mode.
Put on the chest pulse sensor.
See the instructions included with the optional
chest pulse sensor.
2
Insert the key fully into the console.
See HOW TO TURN ON THE POWER on page
11.
When you are finished using the treadmill, unplug
the power cord.
3
Select a heart rate program.
When the key is
inserted, the
manual mode
will be selected.
To select a
heart rate program, press the
Program button repeatedly until one of the two
heart rate program indicators lights.
The two profiles on the left side of the console
show how the target heart rate will change during
the programs. The numbers above the profiles
represent percentages of your estimated maximum heart rate. Note: Your estimated maximum
heart rate is determined by subtracting your age
from 220. For example, if you are 30 years old,
your estimated maximum heart rate is 190 beats
per minute (220 – 30 = 190). If you are 30 years
old, a target heart rate setting of 50% is equal to
95 beats per minute (50% of 190 is 95).
14
During heart rate programs, the program
display will show a
graphic that represents
your heart rate. Each
time a heartbeat is detected, an additional
peak will appear.
4
During the program, the console will regularly
compare your heart rate to the current target heart
rate setting. If your heart rate is too far below or
above the target heart rate setting, the speed of
the treadmill will automatically increase or decrease to bring your heart rate closer to the target
heart rate setting. If the speed reaches the maximum speed limit for the program (see step 6 at
the left) and your heart rate is still too far below
the current target heart rate setting, the incline of
the treadmill will also increase to bring your heart
rate closer to the target heart rate setting.
Enter your age.
When a heart rate program is selected, the letters AGE and the current
age setting will begin to
flash in the Calories/
Fat Calories/Heart Rate
display. You must enter your age to use a heart
rate program. If you have already entered your
age, go to step 5. If you have not entered your
age, press the Incline (Age Set) buttons until your
age is shown. Your age will then be saved in memory.
5
The program will continue until no time remains in
the program. The walking belt will then slow to a
stop.
If the speed or incline setting is too high or too
low, you can adjust the setting with the speed or
incline buttons. However, each time the console
compares your heart rate to the current target
heart rate setting, the speed and/or incline of the
treadmill may automatically change to bring your
heart rate closer to the target heart rate setting.
Adjust the maximum speed limit for the
program.
If your pulse is not detected during the program,
the letters PLS will flash in the Calories/Fat
Calories/Heart Rate display and the speed and incline of the treadmill may automatically decrease
until your pulse is detected. If this occurs, see the
instructions included with the chest pulse sensor.
When a heart rate program is selected, the letters SPd (speed) and the
maximum speed limit for
the program will flash in
the Speed/Min-Mile display. If desired, change the maximum speed limit
by pressing the Quick Speed buttons.
6
To stop the program at any time, press the Stop
button. Heart rate programs should not be stopped
temporarily and then restarted. To use a heart rate
program again, reselect the program and start it at
the beginning.
Press the Start button or the Speed ▲ button to
start the program.
7
A moment after the button is pressed, the treadmill will automatically adjust to the first speed and
incline settings for the program. Hold the handrails
and begin walking.
Follow your progress with the displays.
See step 5 on page 11.
8
Each heart rate program is divided into one-minute
segments. (The Time/Incline/Segment Time display will show both the time remaining in the program and the time remaining in the current segment of the program.) One target heart rate setting is programmed for each segment. (The same
target heart rate setting may be programmed for
consecutive segments.)
When the program is completed, remove the
key from the console.
See step 6 on page 14.

PROBLEM: The incline of the treadmill does not change correctly or does not change when iFIT.com
CD’s and videos are played
SOLUTION: a. With the key inserted in the console, press one of the Incline buttons. While the incline is
changing, remove the key. After a few seconds, re-insert the key. The treadmill will automatically rise to the maximum incline level and then return to the minimum level. This will recalibrate
the incline.

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
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 treadmill until your heart rate is near the lowest number in
your training zone.
For maximum fat burning, adjust the speed and incline
of the treadmill 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 treadmill 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.
26
SUGGESTED STRETCHES
The correct form for several basic stretches is shown at the right. Move slowly as you stretch—never bounce.
1. Toe Touch Stretch
Stand with your knees bent slightly and slowly bend forward from
your hips. Allow your back and shoulders to relax as you reach
down toward your toes as far as possible. Hold for 15 counts,
then relax. Repeat 3 times. Stretches: Hamstrings, back of knees
and back.
1
2. Hamstring Stretch
Sit with one leg extended. Bring the sole of the opposite foot toward you and rest it against the inner thigh of your extended leg.
Reach toward your toes as far as possible. Hold for 15 counts,
then relax. Repeat 3 times for each leg. Stretches: Hamstrings,
lower back and groin.
2
3. Calf/Achilles Stretch
With one leg in front of the other, reach forward and place your
hands against a wall. Keep your back leg straight and your back
foot flat on the floor. Bend your front leg, lean forward and move
your hips toward the wall. Hold for 15 counts, then relax. Repeat
3 times for each leg. To cause further stretching of the achilles
tendons, bend your back leg as well. Stretches: Calves, achilles
tendons and ankles.
3
4
4. Quadriceps Stretch
With one hand against a wall for balance, reach back and grasp
one foot with your other hand. Bring your heel as close to your
buttocks as possible. Hold for 15 counts, then relax. Repeat 3
times for each leg. Stretches: Quadriceps and hip muscles.
5. Inner Thigh Stretch
Sit with the soles of your feet together and your knees outward.
Pull your feet toward your groin area as far as possible. Hold for
15 counts, then relax. Repeat 3 times. Stretches: Quadriceps
and hip muscles.
