make sure that the location and position permit access to a plug.
15. Never start the treadmill whilst you are standing on the walking belt. Always hold the
handrails whilst using the treadmill.
5. Keep the treadmill indoors, away from moisture and dust. Do not put the treadmill in a
garage or covered patio, or near water.
16. The treadmill is capable of high speeds.
Adjust the speed in small increments to avoid
sudden jumps in speed.
6. Do not operate the treadmill where aerosol
products are used or where oxygen is being
administered.
17. The pulse sensor is not a medical device.
Various factors, including the user's movement, may affect the accuracy of heart rate

ASSEMBLY
Assembly requires two people. Set the treadmill in a cleared area and remove all packing materials. Do not
dispose of the packing materials until assembly is completed. The treadmill can be assembled without tools.
Note: The underside of the treadmill walking belt is coated with high-performance lubricant. During shipping, a
small amount of lubricant may be transferred to the top of the walking belt or the shipping carton. This is a normal
condition and does not affect treadmill performance. If there is lubricant on top of the walking belt, simply wipe off
the lubricant with a soft cloth and a mild, non-abrasive cleaner.
1. With the help of a second person, carefully raise the
Uprights (15) until the treadmill is in the position shown.

OPERATION AND ADJUSTMENT
THE PERFORMANT LUBETM WALKING BELT
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. They will
deteriorate the walking belt and cause excessive wear.
HOW TO PLUG IN THE POWER CORD
This product must be earthed. If it should malfunction or break
down, earthing provides a path of least resistance for electric
current to reduce the risk of electric shock. This product is
equipped with a cord having an equipment-earthing conductor
and a earthing plug. Plug one end of the cord into the treadmill.
Plug the power cord into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed and earthed in accordance with all local codes
and ordinances.
DANGER:
Improper connection of the
equipment-earthing 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 earthed. 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.

MAINTENANCE AND TROUBLE-SHOOTING
Most treadmill problems can be solved by following the steps below. Find the symptom that applies, and
follow the steps listed. If further assistance is needed, please call our Customer Service Department.
1. SYMPTOM: The power does not turn on
a. Make sure that the power cord is plugged into a properly earthed outlet. (See HOW TO PLUG IN THE
POWER CORD on page 7.) If an extension cord is needed, use only a 3-conductor, 14-gauge (1mm2) cord
that is no longer than 5 feet (1.5 meters).
b. After the power cord has been plugged in, make sure that the key is inserted into the console as far as it will
go. See step 1 on page 9.
c. Check the circuit breaker located on the treadmill near the

CONDITIONING GUIDELINES
During the first few minutes of exercise, your body
uses easily accessible carbohydrate calories for energy. 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. It may also be helpful to use incline
program 2 or 3 or speed program 2 or 3 on the console
(see pages 10 to 12).
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 your movement,
may affect the accuracy of heart rate readings.
The sensor is intended only as an exercise aid
in determining heart rate trends in general.
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
The following guidelines will help you to plan your exercise program. Remember—these are general guidelines only. For more detailed exercise information, obtain a reputable book or consult your physician.
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. It may also be helpful to use incline program 1 or
speed program 1 (see pages 10 to 12).
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.
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. Note: During the
first few weeks of your exercise program, do not keep
your pulse in your training zone for longer than 20 minutes.
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.
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.
To measure your heart rate during exercise, use the
pulse sensor on the handrail. If your heart rate is too
high or too low, adjust the speed and incline of the
treadmill.
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
Fat Burning
To burn fat effectively, you must exercise at a relatively
low intensity level for a sustained period of time.

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.

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.
