must be inserted into an outlet that is properly
installed and grounded in accordance with all local
codes and ordinances. Failure to properly ground the
equipment could void the Precor Limited Warranty.
DANGER
Improper connection of the equipmentgrounding conductor can result in a risk of
electric shock. Check with a qualified
electrician or service person if you are in
doubt as to whether the unit is properly
grounded. Do not modify the plug
provided with the equipment. If it does not
fit the outlet, get a proper outlet installed
by a qualified electrician.

appears on the console. Once you have entered the
entire safety code, you can begin your workout (or
change the settings on your treadmill). If a key is not
pressed within five seconds or the correct safety code
is not entered within two minutes, the message
INVALID CODE, TRY AGAIN appears on the console
and the running belt does not move. After two
minutes, the Precor banner reappears.

Measuring Your
Heart Rate
Important: The heart rate and SmartRate® features are
intended for reference only. They may not be accurate for
every user or at every intensity and are not intended for
use as a medical device. Also visit
www.precor.com/en-us/customer-service/faq.
The heartbeat indicator (icon) appears over the
SmartRate scale (refer to Using SmartRate).
 After a few seconds, the console displays your
current heart rate.
Before you start working out, make sure you know your
maximum heart rate. Then, as you work out, be sure to
reduce the intensity of your exercise if you reach or
exceed that number.

CAUTION: Your heart rate should never exceed 85% of
your maximum aerobic heart rate.
Precor cannot guarantee the accuracy of any readings
you may get, but for best results, measure your heart
rate in one of two ways:
You can use the following formula, provided by the
American College of Sports Medicine®, to figure out
your maximum heart rate:
If you have a chest strap (for use with a fitness
watch, for example), the equipment can receive
the heart rate signal the strap transmits.
Note: You may have better results using a chest
transmitter strap.
 You can grasp the heart rate sensors on the
handlebars.
When the equipment detects your heart rate, the
following things happen:
Maximum heart rate = 207 – (your age × 0.67)

Your typical target heart rate is 70% of your maximum
rate.
The following graph shows how your effective heart
rate ranges vary with your age.
On the Workout List, you can find several
preprogrammed heart rate workouts (refer to Available
Workouts). These workout courses automatically
manage your heart rate at a target level based on your
age. By monitoring your heart rate and making changes
to the equipment’s settings as you exercise, the
workouts keep your heart rate within a few beats per
minute of the target rate.
Figure 11: Heart rate target zones
Measuring Your Heart Rate
27
Precision Series / Energy Series Treadmill Owner's Manual: TRM 425 / 223
Using SmartRate
SmartRate displays actual heart rate information in
relation to the user’s target zone for weight loss and
cardiovascular training.
Note: Precor cannot guarantee the accuracy of any
readings you receive.
The SmartRate monitor is visible during all workouts.
In addition, Heart Rate Control (HRC) workouts adjust
their intensity automatically to keep a user’s heart rate
in its target zone.
CAUTION: Your heart rate should never exceed 85% of
your maximum heart rate. You can calculate your
maximum heart rate using the following formula:
Maximum heart rate = 207 – (0.67 × your age)
CAUTION: Before beginning any fitness program, see your
physician for a thorough physical examination. Seek
advice from your physician to learn the target heart rate
appropriate for your fitness level.
28
To test your heart rate:
1. Select a workout and press GO or ENTER.
2. Grasp the heart rate sensors with both hands. A
blinking heart indicator appears while the
equipment reads your heart rate. After a few
seconds, the console displays your heart rate in
beats per minute and shows it on the SmartRate
scale. The labels next to the SmartRate scale
indicate the zone where your heart rate is currently
operating:
– Warm Up
– Fat Burn (weight loss)
– Cardio
– High
Note: In the Basic Heart Rate Control workout, the GO
key is deactivated. The equipment needs to know your
age to set an accurate target heart rate, so you must
either enter it or select a user account before you start
the Basic Heart Rate Control workout.
Getting Accurate Heart Rate
Readings
Note: To receive an accurate reading, the strap needs
to be in direct contact with the skin on the lower
sternum (just below the bust line for women).
Precor cannot guarantee the accuracy of any readings
you may get, but for best results, heart rate sensors
need to be securely in contact with your skin. Use the
following guidelines to make sure they are.
To attach a chest strap:
Note: You may have better results using a chest
transmitter strap.
WARNING
1.
Carefully dampen the back of the strap with tap
water. Refer to the following figure.
Note: Do not use deionized water. It does not have
the proper minerals and salts to conduct electrical
impulses.
Signals used by the chest strap
transmitter (or heart rate strap) may
interfere with pacemakers or other
implanted devices. Contact your
doctor, the manufacturer of the chest
strap, and the manufacturer of the
implanted device before using a chest
strap transmitter.
Important: Precor cardio equipment works with 5 KHz
chest straps only. It does not work with Bluetooth®-based
chest straps, which are designed for use with mobile apps.
Measuring Your Heart Rate

29
Precision Series / Energy Series Treadmill Owner's Manual: TRM 425 / 223
2. Adjust the strap and fasten it around your chest.
The strap should feel snug, not restrictive. Refer to
the following figure.
Figure 13: Adjust chest strap
3. Make sure that the chest strap is right side up, lies
horizontally across your chest, and is centered in
the middle of your chest. Refer to the following
figure.
Figure 14: Fasten chest strap
30
4. After you put on the chest strap, face the display
console for a few seconds. This allows the receiver
in the console to recognize the signal from the
chest strap.
If you use the touch-sensitive grips, be sure to grasp
them securely (but not tightly—use a loose, cupping
hold) on both sides. You may need to wait for 15 to 20
seconds before your heart rate is displayed.
Important: The touch-sensitive grips work well for most
people. However, because of their body chemistry or
erratic heartbeats, a few people cannot use the grips. If this
applies to you, a chest strap may provide better results.
However, do not grasp the touch-sensitive grips while
wearing a chest strap—using both at the same time can
cause erratic heart rate readings.
Troubleshooting Heart Rate
Readings
Precor cannot guarantee the accuracy of any readings
but if your heart rate readings look wrong, or if you do
not see any readings at all, check the following list for
possible causes. If the solutions in this list do not solve
the problem, contact your dealer or Precor Customer
Support.
Important: The heart rate and SmartRate® features are
intended for reference only. They may not be accurate for
every user or at every speed and are not intended for use
as a medical device. Holding the heart rate handle touch
sensor while running may also decrease accuracy of the
heart rate reading and is not recommended. Also visit:
www.precor.com/en-us/customer-service/faq.
No Heartbeat Icon or Heart Rate Display
For touch-sensitive grips:
Make sure that your hands grasp the touchsensitive grips continuously and firmly (but not
tightly) for at least five to ten seconds.
 Check that the palms of your hands are not
covered with any sort of salve, rub, or lotion. If they
are, wash them.
 Check that your hands are not too dry. If they are,
moisten them slightly.
For a chest strap:



Make sure the strap is fastened, positioned, and
moistened correctly.
Make sure the strap is compatible with the
equipment. It must be a 5 kHz strap. Heart rate
straps that function at other frequencies, and
Bluetooth-based straps, are not compatible with
this equipment.
Precor cannot guarantee the accuracy of any readings
you may get, but for best results, follow these tips.
The heart rate sensors may not be in secure contact
with your skin. Try the following solutions.

The touch-sensitive grips may not be making secure
contact. Try the following solutions:
Make sure that your hands are clean, slightly
moist, and positioned as described earlier in this
table.
 Try using a chest strap instead of the grips.
If you are trying to use the grips and an active chest
strap at the same time, choose one or the other. Either
do not grasp the touch-sensitive grips, or remove or
turn off the chest strap.

Choosing and
Completing a
Workout
The instructions shown earlier in this manual provide
the simplest possible steps for getting started with
your new fitness equipment. But in most cases, you’ll
want to start with one of the preprogrammed workouts
available on the equipment.
Choosing a Workout
Your fitness equipment has been programmed with a
library of workout plans to help you meet your fitness
goals
To choose a workout:
1. Press the WORKOUTS key repeatedly to scroll
through the available workouts.
2. When you reach the workout you want, press the
ENTER key to select it, then press GO to begin.
Tip: The WORKOUTS key remains active while
you work out, in case you want to switch workouts
in the middle of your exercise session.
To adjust the duration of your workout and your
personal information:
1. At any time during your workout, press ENTER.
2. Use the left and right arrow keys to adjust the
duration of the workout, then press ENTER to
continue.
3. Adjust the weight shown so that it matches your
weight, then press ENTER again.
4. Adjust the age shown so that it matches your age,
then press ENTER one last time.
Choosing and Completing a Workout
Available Workouts
Your fitness equipment includes a wide selection of
workouts that are carefully designed to make sure you
get the best results out of every workout.
The human body is extremely efficient. If it makes the
same motion regularly over many days or weeks, it
learns to make that motion with less and less effort.
This process, called muscle adaptation, has one
drawback—the longer you stick to the same workout,
the less good that workout does you.
To prevent muscle adaptation from setting in as you
work out, try different kinds of workouts on different
days. By keeping your muscles guessing, you’ll keep
your energy use up, promoting faster weight loss and
better conditioning.
In the following figures, the elevated areas show the
work expenditure for each preset workout.
33
34
Precision Series / Energy Series Treadmill Owner's Manual: TRM 425 / 223
Interval 1-1 and Interval 1-2
Interval workouts help exercisers improve strength,
endurance, aerobic and anaerobic fitness. They
alternate short bursts of high intensity activity with
recovery periods.
These workouts are designed to raise and lower your
heart rate in a repeating fashion for a user-defined
period of time by alternating rest and work intervals of
two minutes each (for the Interval 1-1 workout) and
two minutes of rest followed by four minutes of work
(for the Interval 1-2 workout).
Training tip: You can further tailor your rest and work
period intensity by adjusting the incline, speed, or both
at any time. The equipment remembers these
preferences for each upcoming interval.
Figure 15: Interval 1-1
Figure 16: 1-2 Interval
Weight Loss
The American College of Sports Medicine
recommends that adults get at least 30-60 minutes of
moderately intense exercise five days a week. The
Weight Loss workout provides a structured and timebased aerobic challenge designed to help you reverse
or prevent weight gain.
The total time for this workout is fixed at 28 minutes. It
consists of alternating four-minute work and rest
intervals. During the work intervals, you can change
the incline at any time.
Training tip: For best results, wear a heart rate
monitor and maintain a target heart rate that is
between 50% and 70% of your maximum heart rate.
Figure 17: Weight Loss
Choosing and Completing a Workout

Precision Series / Energy Series Treadmill Owner's Manual: TRM 425 / 223
Basic Heart Rate Control
This workout monitors your heart rate to guide you
through a moderate intensity program that is optimal
for aerobic conditioning.
Training tip: This program offers a coaching benefit
for new and returning users who are learning how to
maintain a moderate, steady exertion level throughout
their workouts.
During the workout, your target heart rate is based on
the following calculation:
Target heart rate = 70% × (207 – (0.67 × your age))
The equipment adjusts its incline level to maintain your
target heart rate while you work out.
When a heart rate signal is not received, a heart shape
with a question mark appears in the upper text display.
Recheck your hand grip on the handheld sensors or the
placement of your chest strap.
Figure 18: Basic HRC
Note: For the unit to detect your heart rate, you must
grip the handheld heart rate sensors or wear a chest
strap while exercising. In the presence of both
handheld and wireless data, the handheld data takes
precedence and is displayed.
Hill Climb
Cross Country
This workout engages a wider range of muscle groups
by adjusting the incline to simulate a hill climbing
experience. Increasing or decreasing one workout
segment increases or decreases all remaining portions
by the same amount.
This workout delivers true training variety and
muscular engagement by continuously adjusting the
incline to simulate the dynamic terrain of an outdoor
run. Any increase or decrease made in one workout
segment will increase or decrease all remaining “hills”
and “valleys” depicted on the display by the same
amount.
Training tip: Incorporating hill climb workouts into
your regular cardio schedule will keep your workouts
varied and help build lower body muscle strength.
Training tip: Advanced users can manually increase
their speed during the hill climbs to increase the
cardiovascular challenge.

Precision Series / Energy Series Treadmill Owner's Manual: TRM 425 / 223
Random
Manual
Variety (for both the muscles and the mind) is the key
to continued success for every exercise goal. The
Random workout delivers a different training profile
every time you select it. The one-minute segments that
appear in the workout profile maintain a set incline
that you can override.
This workout motivates you by allowing you to define
and track your exertion levels throughout your exercise
session.
Training tip: Your body will respond differently to each
workout. The best way to evaluate and quantify the
effectiveness of each exercise session is to wear a
chest strap or use the touch-sensitive grips during your
training sessions.
Training tip: As you progress through your workout,
each segment of the profile reflects the last change
you made to the incline and speed settings. Challenge
yourself by adjusting your training parameters
regularly for the best results.
Figure 22: Manual
Aerobic
This workout is designed to condition your heart. You
can specify a length of time for your fitness session, its
incline, and its speed.
Figure 21: Aerobic
Ending a Session
Cooling down is an important aspect of your workout
because it helps reduce muscle stiffness and soreness
by transporting excess lactic acid out of the working
muscles. In addition, a five-minute cooldown allows
your heart rate to return to its normal, resting state.

Maintenance
Inspection
It is important to perform the minor maintenance tasks
described in this section. Failure to maintain the
equipment as described here could void the Precor
Limited Warranty.
1.
DANGER
To reduce the risk of electrical shock,
always unplug the equipment from its
power source before cleaning it or
performing any maintenance tasks.
Inspect the treadmill daily.
Look and listen for slipping belts, loose fasteners,
unusual noises, worn or frayed power cords, and
any other indications that the equipment may be in
need of service. If you notice any of these, obtain
service.
Important: If you determine that the treadmill needs
service, make sure that the treadmill cannot be used
inadvertently. Turn the unit Off, and then unplug the
power cord from its power source. Make sure other
users know that the treadmill needs service.
2. Check for worn, frayed or missing safety lanyards.
Replace missing or worn safety lanyards
immediately. Do not exercise on the treadmill
without attaching the safety clip to your clothing.
To order parts or to contact a Precor authorized
service provider in your area, refer to Obtaining Service.
Cleaning the Equipment
Storing the Chest Strap
Most of the working mechanisms are protected inside
the hood and base of the treadmill. However, for
efficient operation, the treadmill relies on low friction.
To keep the friction low, the unit’s running belt, staging
platforms, and internal mechanisms must be as clean
as possible.
Store your chest strap in a place where it remains free
of dust, dirt, and moisture, such as in a closet or
drawer. Be sure to protect the chest strap from
extremes in temperature. Do not store it in a place that
may be exposed to temperatures below 32° F (0° C).
Precor recommends the treadmill be cleaned before
and after each workout to remove dust, dirt, water, and
sweat. Use mild soap and water to dampen a soft cloth
and wipe all exposed surfaces.
To clean the chest strap, use a sponge or soft cloth
dampened in mild soap and water. Dry the surface
thoroughly with a clean towel.
CAUTION: Do not use any acidic cleaners. Doing so will
weaken the paint or powder coatings and void the Precor
Limited Warranty. Never pour water or spray liquids on
any part of the treadmill, and remove any accumulated
sweat from the treadmill after use. Allow the treadmill to
dry completely before using it again.
Frequently vacuum the floor underneath the unit to
prevent the accumulation of dust and dirt, which can
affect the smooth operation of the unit. Use a soft
nylon scrub brush to clean the running belt.
Maintenance
43
Precision Series / Energy Series Treadmill Owner's Manual: TRM 425 / 223
Checking the Alignment of the
Running Belt
Proper belt alignment allows the belt to remain
centered and ensures smooth operation. Realigning the
belt takes a few simple adjustments. If you are unsure
about this procedure, call Precor Customer Support.
CAUTION: Special care must be taken when aligning the
running belt. Turn off the treadmill while adjusting or
working near the rear roller. Remove any loose clothing
and tie back your hair. Be very careful to keep your fingers
and any other object clear of the belt and rollers,
especially in front of the roller and behind the deck. The
treadmill will not stop immediately if an object becomes
caught in the belt or rollers.
44
To check the alignment of the running belt:
1. The treadmill has adjustable rear feet. Make sure
that the running surface is level. If the treadmill is
placed on an uneven surface, adjusting the rear
feet can help, but will not compensate for
extremely uneven surfaces.
2. Turn the unit on.
3. Stand beside the treadmill and press GO.
The running belt starts automatically after a 3second countdown appears on the display.
4. After the running belt starts, increase the speed to
3 mph (5 kph).
CAUTION: If you hear any chafing or the running belt
appears to be getting damaged, stop the running belt
immediately by pressing the STOP switch.
NEVER add any foreign substance to the underside of
the running belt. The belt is designed to move over the
treadmill deck without any additional lubrication. If
you notice excessive friction or wear in the running
belt, contact Precor Customer Support.
5. Walk around to the rear of the unit and observe
the belt for a few minutes. The belt should be
centered on the running belt. If the belt drifts off
center, you must make adjustments (refer to
Adjusting the Running Belt).
Important: Failure to align the belt may cause the belt
to tear or fray, which is not covered by the Precor
Limited Warranty.
6. To stop the running belt, press the STOP switch.
7. Turn the treadmill off.
Adjusting the Running Belt
If you are unsure about adjusting the running belt, call
Precor Customer Support. Refer to Obtaining Service.
CAUTION: For your safety, use the power switch to turn
Off the treadmill before making any adjustments. Do not
adjust the running belt when someone is standing on the
unit.
To adjust the running belt:
1. Locate the right belt adjustment bolt in the rear
end cap of the treadmill. Refer to the following
figure.
Figure 23: Location of the adjustment bolt
Maintenance
45
46
Precision Series / Energy Series Treadmill Owner's Manual: TRM 425 / 223
To determine left and right, stand at the rear of the
treadmill and face the display. Make all belt
adjustments on the right rear corner bolt using the
hex key provided.
– If the belt is off center to the LEFT, turn the
adjusting bolt ¼ turn counterclockwise, which
moves the running belt to the right.
– If the belt tracks off center to the RIGHT, turn
the bolt ¼ turn clockwise; this moves the belt to
the left.
Important: Do not turn the adjusting bolt more than
¼ turn at a time. Overtightening the bolt can damage
the treadmill.
2. Recheck the alignment of the running belt.
Long-Term Storage
When the equipment is not in use for any length of
time, turn it off. Make sure that the power cord is
unplugged from its power source and is positioned so
that it will not become damaged or interfere with
people, furniture, or other equipment.

Treadmill 200 Series Assembly Guide
Getting Started
Installation Requirements
Thank you for choosing Precor. For proper installation, please read this guide
thoroughly and follow the assembly instructions. If you do not assemble the
treadmill according to these guidelines, you can void the Precor Limited Warranty.
Follow these installation requirements when assembling the unit:
CAUTION: You will need assistance to assemble this unit. DO NOT attempt assembly
by yourself.

Obtaining Service
Do not service the treadmill except for minor belt adjustments and maintenance
tasks as described in the owner’s manual. For more information regarding
customer support numbers or a list of Precor authorized service dealers, visit the
Precor web site at www.precor.com.





Assemble the unit near the location where you plan to use it and provide
ample space around the unit.
Important: Consult your owner’s manual for proper placement of your equipment.
Make sure that the power switch is OFF and that the treadmill is not plugged
into a power source. Check the ON/OFF power switch on the front of the
treadmill. Place the switch in the O (OFF) position.
Assemble the treadmill on a solid, flat surface. A smooth, flat surface under
the treadmill helps keep it level and a level treadmill will have fewer
malfunctions.
Open the box and assemble the components in the sequence presented in this
guide. If you plan to move the unit, obtain help and use proper lifting
techniques.
Important: Grasp the rear end of the treadmill frame or either side of the base
frame. Lift the treadmill and roll it on its front wheels. Do not grasp any other plastic
part while lifting or moving the unit. The plastic parts are not reinforced and they
may break.
Obtain assistance. Ask another capable adult for assistance during the
assembly process.
Use your fingers or the appropriate tools to insert fasteners. Proper alignment
helps prevent crossthreading. Do not fully wrench tighten fasteners until
instructed to do so.
Unpacking the Equipment
The treadmill is carefully tested and inspected before shipment. The unit is
shipped in two boxes. Ask for help from two or more people to unpack and
assemble the treadmill. If any items are missing, contact your dealer.

Leveling the Treadmill
Important: Before using the treadmill, make sure it is completely level and that it sits
evenly on the floor.
To ensure that the treadmill is completely level, you should check it in two
directions:
To level the treadmill:
1. Ask your assistant to lift the rear portion of the treadmill.
Important: Use proper lifting techniques when lifting the treadmill.
2. Loosen the upper lock nut with a 17 mm open-end wrench and rotate
the rear foot to raise or lower the treadmill.
from side to side (across the belt)
from front to back (along the belt)
The treadmill should be leveled to center or zero, depending on the type of level
you use. If adjustments are needed, adjust one rear foot at a time.

Figure 21: Level position along belt
Checking the Alignment
Proper belt alignment allows the belt to remain centered and ensures smooth
operation. Realigning the belt takes a few simple adjustments. If you are unsure
about this procedure, call Precor Customer Support. Refer to Obtaining Service.
CAUTION: Special care must be taken when aligning the running belt. Turn Off the
treadmill while adjusting or working near the rear roller. Remove any loose clothing and
tie back your hair. Be very careful to keep your fingers and any other object clear of the
belt and rollers, especially in front of the roller and behind the deck. The treadmill will
not stop immediately if an object becomes caught in the belt or rollers.
To check the alignment:
1. The treadmill has adjustable rear feet. Make sure that the running surface is
level before aligning or adjusting the running belt. For more information, see
Leveling the Treadmill.
2. Connect the power plug to an appropriate dedicated circuit and turn the unit
On.
3. Stand beside the treadmill and press QUICKSTART.
Note: If needed, enter the password. Refer to your owner’s manual. The
running belt starts automatically after a 3-second countdown appears on the
display.
4. Increase the treadmill belt speed until the display shows a speed of 3 mph (5
kph).
CAUTION: If you hear any chafing or see that the running belt appears to be getting
damaged, stop the running belt immediately by pressing the red STOP button.
Contact Precor Customer Support.
5. Walk around to the rear of the unit and observe the belt for a few minutes.
The belt should run centered along the running bed. If the belt drifts off center,
you will need to make adjustments. Refer to the next section.
Important: If the belt needs alignment, make the adjustments at once. Failure to
align the belt may cause the belt to tear or fray, which is not covered by the Precor
Limited Warranty.
6. To stop the running belt, press the red STOP button.
7. Turn the treadmill Off.

Adjusting the Running Belt
If you are unsure about adjusting the running belt, contact Precor Customer
Support. Refer to Obtaining Service.
CAUTION: For your safety, use the power switch to turn Off the treadmill before
making any adjustments. Do not adjust the running belt when someone is standing on
the unit.
To adjust the running belt:
1. Locate the right belt adjustment bolt in the rear end cap of the treadmill.
Figure 24: Belt adjustment bolt location
2. To determine left and right, stand at the rear of the treadmill and face the
display. Make all belt adjustments on the right rear corner bolt using the
6 mm hex key.
– If the belt is off center to the LEFT, turn the adjusting bolt ¹₄ turn
counterclockwise, which moves the running belt to the right.
– If the belt is off center to the RIGHT, turn the bolt ¹₄ turn clockwise,
which moves the belt to the left.
Important: Do not turn the adjusting bolt more than ¹₄ turn at a time.
Overtightening the bolt can damage the treadmill.
3. Recheck the alignment of the running belt.

Breaking in the Equipment
Precor equipment does not require an actual break-in period. However, moving
components such as belts, gears, and bearings can settle while the equipment is
being stored or shipped. This can cause the equipment to operate with a small
amount of roughness or noise when it starts up for the first time.
The equipment usually returns to smooth operation after a day or two of normal
use. If it does not, contact your dealer for assistance. For more information, refer
to your owner’s manual.
