CONSERVER CES INSTRUCTIONS
POUR TOUT USAGE ULTÉRIEUR.
9
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 requires a dedicated* line according to the electrical configurations listed in
the chart below.
* One individual branch circuit for each treadmill per NEC article 210-21 (b) (1) and 210-23 (or other appropriate, country
specific electrical compliance guidelines). The hot, neutral and ground wires must each be routed independently (not
looped or tied to other circuits.)" .
NOTE: Do not modify the plug provided with this product. If the plug does not fit into an available
electrical outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
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 bipolaire en Amérique du Nord. Si aucune prise de 20 A correctement
mise à la terre n'est disponible, en faire installer une par un électricien qualifié. Les modèles utilisant 16 A ou plus doivent être branchés sur un circuit spécialisé.
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. Any modification to the electrical plug will result in a voided warranty.
Un branchement incorrect du conducteur de mise à la terre peut entraîner des risques de
décharge électrique. Consulter un électricien si des doutes subsistent quant à la technique de
mise à la terre. NE PAS MODIFIER la fiche fournie avec l'appareil. Si elle ne s'adapte pas à une
prise, faire installer une prise correcte par un électricien qualifié. Toute modification à la fiche
annule la garantie.

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. A bubble level is recommended to ensure
proper leveling.
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"
If the clock setting has not been set, follow the instructions below to properly set the clock. To accept
the current settings, press the CLEAR key.
To change the setting, press the ENTER key. The MESSAGE CENTER displays: "CHOOSE CLOCK
DISPLAY MODE BY USING ARROW KEYS". Use an ARROW key to toggle the settings between "24
HOUR MODE" or "12 HOUR MODE AM/PM". To accept the mode, press the ENTER key.
The current time will be displayed in Greenwich Mean Time.
•
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". After
the clock has been updated the message center displays "CLOCK SET TO LOCAL".
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.
†
11
If the clock setting is incorrect, follow the instructions below to change the clock setting.
To enter the Clock's configuration, press and hold down the PAUSE key and press the CLEAR key
twice. Continue to hold down the PAUSE key until the MESSAGE CENTER displays the words "SERVICE MENU". Then, release the PAUSE key and press the QUICK START key. The MESSAGE
CENTER then displays "MANAGER CONFIG". Press the TIME down arrow key once - message center displays "CLOCK CONFIGURATION". Press the Enter key to access the CLOCK CONFIG
MENU.
Use arrow keys to select an item you want to change. You can select the following:
•
Set Day
•
Set Date
•
Set Time
Press ENTER on the item you want to change. Use the arrow keys to change the item and then
press ENTER. Your changes will be saved and then you will see "CLOCK SET TO LOCAL" in the
display. Once you see this message you can press the CLEAR key 3 times to exit the Clock configuration mode.
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 frame. 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 counter-clockwise.
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.

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 using the power cord clips 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.
NOTE: To accomodate treadmill incline, at least two feet (24”) of power cord is required
between the outlet and the last power cord clip for outlets in front of the treadmill.
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.
WARNING: Make sure that there is a 6-foot clearance behind the treadmill.
Contact Life Fitness Customer Service for an optional 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 : S'assurer 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.
NOTE: When using Pattern 1, it is extremely important to route
the power cord BETWEEN the lift frame and the main frame.

HEART RATE ZONE TRAINING® EXERCISE
3.1
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† (HRmax),
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, simply enter a new target heart rate using the
NUMERIC keypad.
To switch between programs during a workout, use the WORKOUT SELECTION keys.
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.
18
3.2
HEART RATE MONITORING
THE LIFEPULSETM SYSTEM
To use the treadmill’s LifepulseTM system to check the heart rate during a workout, grasp the stainless
steel sensors on the ErgoTM front handlebar. 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.
During the setup of a heart rate zone training workout, the user will be required to enter a start-up
speed. If a heart rate chest strap is not detected, the maximum allowable speed is 4.5 mph. If a heart
rate chest strap is detected, the maximum speed is 12 mph (15 mph on the 97Ti).

WORKOUT DESCRIPTIONS
QUICK START
QUICK START is the fastest way to begin exercising. After the QUICK START key is pressed, a
MANUAL workout begins. For accurate caloric expenditure, enter weight using the ENTER WEIGHT
button. The incline level is set to zero by default. Change the level using the INCLINE ARROW key.
Change the speed using the SPEED key, up or down as desired, or use the NUMERIC keypad to
enter a new speed value.
MANUAL
The MANUAL program is a constant effort workout in which the user can change resistance
level or speed at any time.
RANDOM
The RANDOM program creates a terrain of hills and valleys that varies with each workout. More
than one million different patterns are possible.
FAT BURN
The FAT BURN workout is designed to maintain a user’s heart rate at 65 percent of the theoretical
maximum† (HRmax) 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.
NOTE: The intensity level is changed by incline. Speed can be only changed by the user
CARDIO
The CARDIO workout is virtually identical to FAT BURN; however the target heart rate is calculated at 80 percent of the theoretical maximum† (HRmax)**. The higher target promotes cardiovascular improvement by placing a heavier workload on the heart muscle.
NOTE: The intensity level is changed by incline. Speed can be only changed by the user.
NOTE: Change the target heart rate at any time by using the NUMERIC KEYPAD.
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 (HRmax). For example, a 40-year-old user's recommended THR for the FAT BURN workout is 117, or 65 percent of the maximum, so the equation would be (22040)*.65 = 117.
** Target Heart Rate (THR) is a percentage of the theoretical maximum (HRmax). A 40-year-old user's recommended THR
for the CARDIO workout is 144, or 80 percent of the maximum; so the equation would be (220-40)*.80 = 144.
23
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 illuminated LEDs, which together have the appearance of hills and valleys. The computerized interval
training workout has been scientifically demonstrated to promote greater cardiorespiratory improvement than steady-pace 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, FAT BURN and the HEART RATE
ZONE TRAINING programs.
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.
24
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.
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.
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 PERSONAL TRAINER button repeatedly until the MESSAGE
CENTER displays “PERSONAL TRAINER 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.
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.
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.
25
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.
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:
26
•
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†
(HRmax), but the user can adjust the target rate during the workout setup. All hills and valleys
are percentages of HRmax. The workout consists of three hills that target three heart rate goals:
The first hill brings the heart rate to 70 percent of HRmax. The second hill increases the rate to
75 percent of HRmax. The third hill matches the Target Heart Rate brining the heart rate to 80
percent of HRmax. The valley always is defined as 65 percent of HRmax.
After a standard three-minute warm-up, the workout progresses toward the first hill and heart rate
goal. Once the user reaches 70 percent of HRmax, the hill continues for one minute. When the
minute expires, the level decreases into a valley. Once the user's heart rate falls to 65 percent of
HRmax, 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.

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† (HRmax), 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 of 80 percent of HRmax,
and a valley, which brings the heart rate down to 65 percent of HRmax. 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 65 percent of
HRmax 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.

the HEART RATE INTERVAL workout is 144, or 80 percent of the maximum; so the equation would be (220-40)*.80 = 144.
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 of 85 percent of the
theoretical maximum† (HRmax). 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 65 percent of HRmax 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.

29
FIT TEST
The treadmill Fit Test program is another exclusive feature of this versatile treadmill. The Fit Test workout
measures cardiovascular fitness and can be used to monitor improvements in endurance every four to six
weeks. The user must grasp the hand sensors (if equipped) when prompted or wear a heart rate chest
strap, as the test score calculation is based on a heart rate reading. The workout duration will be five minutes at a 5% incline. Immediately afterward, the console will take the user's heart rate reading, calculate a
fitness score, and display 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.
To set up the Fit Test:

O
O
time since you last drank a liquid containing caffeine or alcohol, or smoked a cigarette (at least four
hours is recommended)
time since you last exercised (at least six hours is recommended)
For the most accurate Fit Test results, you should 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 (HRmax). 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.

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 “ABOVE 5,000 FEET”(NAVY) / “ABOVE 4,500 FEET”(MARINES) or “BELOW 5,000
FEET”(NAVY) / “BELOW 4,500 FEET”(MARINES) 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.
For all FITNESS TESTS except GERKIN, 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 cooldown is three minutes. For longer times, the cool-down is five minutes. The user can abort the cooldown 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 PEB, Army, and
Marines tests; or a qualititative score, such as EXCELLENT, for the Navy test.
For the Gerkin test, the time at which the heart rate reached the target heart rate and is maintained
for 15 seconds, and a converted VO2 MAX value will be shown in the MESSAGE CENTER during
the workout summary.

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.
In the HILL and RANDOM workouts, these varying hills occur for equal durations, as discussed
in the HILL workout description. 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.
34
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. 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 PERSONAL TRAINER 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.

PROGRAMMING CUSTOM WORKOUTS
After entering the Manager’s Configuration, use the TIME ARROW keys to scroll through the list
of configuration options, or allow the MESSAGE CENTER to scroll automatically through the
options. When “CUSTOM WORKOUT ENTRY” appears, press ENTER to select this option.
The custom workouts are identified as numbers, from 1 to 6. Enter the desired number on the
NUMERIC keypad, or use the ARROW keys to scroll through the displayed numbers. Press
ENTER to confirm the number selection. If a workout does not already exist for that number, the
MESSAGE CENTER displays a request to begin creating the workout.
If a workout does exist for the number in question, the MESSAGE CENTER displays a statement
to that effect, followed by the option to modify the existing workout. The steps for modifying a workout are the same as those for creating a new workout:
Using the TIME ARROW keys or the NUMERIC keypad, select a workout duration time in minutes, and press ENTER. The duration cannot exceed the MAXIMUM TIME set in the Manager's
Configuration.
Next, select the interval type. Use the arrow keys to toggle between the displayed options, and
press the ENTER key to select the desired interval type. Options are:
•
Speed/Incline, in which a treadmill speed and/or incline grade is selected for each
interval
•
Target Heart Rate, in which a maximum target heart rate is selected for each interval.
The number of intervals is always 30, so the length of each interval equals the selected duration
divided by 30. Each interval is identified by the time at which it occurs during the workout.
If Speed/Incline is selected, the MESSAGE CENTER displays each interval, identified as the
time at which the interval occurs. For each displayed interval, enter a speed using the SPEED
ARROW keys, and/or enter an incline grade using the INCLINE ARROW keys. Press Enter to
confirm each selection. After values are selected for all 30 intervals, the MESSAGE CENTER
displays the statement, “CUSTOM WORKOUT COMPLETED”, followed by a prompt to create a
workout for the next number.
If Target Heart Rate is selected, the MESSAGE CENTER displays each interval, identified as a
numeral from 1 to 30. For each displayed interval, enter a target heart rate using the ARROW
keys. Press Enter to confirm each selection. After values are selected for all 30 intervals, the
MESSAGE CENTER displays the statement, “CUSTOM WORKOUT COMPLETED”, followed by
a prompt to create a workout for the next number.
38
USING QUICK START DISABLE
This configuration has two possible values which are selected using the incline arrow keys.
The values are as follows:
•
Quick Start with numeric keys “allowed”
•
Quick Start with numeric keys “not allowed”
The default value is “allowed”. This means that a user can start a QUICK START workout by
simply entering a desired workout speed using the numeric keys only. If the configuration is set
to “not allowed”, a user cannot use the numeric keys to start a QUICK START workout. This
configuration is designed to prevent users from inadvertantly starting a QUICK START workout
on treadmills that are integrated into a fitness networking system that requires the user to enter

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 2.5 MPH (4.0 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 at 4.0 MPH. (6.4 KPH) 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.
48
TENSIONING AN EXISTING STRIDING BELT
1
Enter the Manual workout and operate the treadmill for five minutes at 5.0 MPH (8.0 KPH).
NOTE: DO NOT RUN OR WALK ON BELT.
2
Reduce the speed to 2.0 MPH (3.2 KPH). Walk on the treadmill. Tightly grip the handrails
and apply force with feet on the striding belt near the motor cover against the moving belt
direction. 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.
4
Repeat STEPS 2 and 3 until the belt no longer slips. Do not exceed one full turn (four quarter turns) per side when adjusting the belt tensioning bolts.
5
Enter the MANUAL workout and operate the treadmill at 2.0 MPH (3.2 KPH) check to insure
proper tracking (See Section 6.5 “How to Adjust and Tension the Striding Belt”). 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.
