Belt Tension and Centering Set Up
Initial Adjustment
After assembly and before turning power on position the rear roller using the "T"
wrench (refer to the drawing if needed). Make 3 turns clockwise to avoid the belt
from slipping.
Make 3 Turns
If belt is too far to the left side:
1) Turn the left roller bolt 1/4 turn clockwise (tighten)
2) Turn the right roller 1/4 turn counterclockwise (loosen)
If belt is too far to the right side:
1) Turn the right roller bolt 1/4 turn clockwise (tighten)
2) Turn the left roller bolt 1/4 turn counterclockwise (loosen)
12
A) TENSIONING THE BELT
If you can feel a slipping sensation when you plant your foot on the belt, the belt is
slipping over the roller. This is normal and a common adjustment on a treadmill. To
eliminate slipping, tighten both sides of the rear roller. Using an Allen wrench, tighten
the roller tension bolts (located at the end caps) 1/4 of a turn clockwise as shown
below. Try the treadmill again to check for slipping. Repeat if necessary, but NEVER
TURN the roller bolt more than 1/4 turn at a time.
1/4
Turn
CAUTION:
OVER TIGHTENING OF THE ROLLER WILL SEVERELY SHORTEN THE LIFE OF
THE BELT AND MAY CAUSE FURTHER DAMAGE TO OTHER COMPONENTS.

Stretching / Flexibility
Adequate flexibility is the ability to move your limbs and joints easily (through a
complete range of motion) the way you need to in order to meet the challenges of
daily life. Fortunately thereʼs a positive reinforcing cycle between flexibility and activity.
Adequate flexibility enables you to maintain an active lifestyle, and an active lifestyle
makes an important contribution to maintaining adequate flexibility. These relationships
grow stronger the older we become.
When should I stretch?
Any time is a good time to Stretch. In the morning it can work out the kinks in your
back, at work, you can relax your neck and shoulders, and after work stretch out your
lower back. However, you should never do your stretches before you have had a
chance to warm your body up.
How should I stretch?
Perform the following stretches slowly and smoothly until you feel a slight “tugging”
sensation on the muscles involved. Donʼt stretch to the point that you feel pain, and
donʼt bounce or you could pull a muscle. Hold each stretch for 10 to 20 seconds. Exhale
through the stretch, and breathe slowly. This will keep you from bouncing.
Calf (back of lover leg)
1. Straight knee start with the leg to be stretched approximately three feet
from the wall and the opposite leg on step forward. Lean toward the wall,
keeping your heels down and feet turned in slightly.
2. Bent knee start same as above, but move approximately one foot closer to
the wall and bend the knee of the back leg to be stretched.
3. Repeat using the other leg.
Iliotibial Band (outside of hip)
1. Start with the leg to be stretched one step back and behind the opposite
foot. Move your hips sideways toward the side of your body being
stretched. Keep the upper body away from the wall and
do not bend forward.
2. Repeat using the other leg.
26
Lower Back, Hips, Groin, and Hamstrings
1. Stand with the feet about shoulder- width apart and pointed straight
ahead. If you are pretty flexible and need more of a stretch, cross one
leg in front of the other for a few stretches, then switch legs.
2. Slowly bend forward from the hips, always keeping your knees
slightly bent.
3. Stretch only to the point where you feel a tugging in the back of
your legs.
Side Bends
1. Stand with your feet about shoulder - width apart and toes pointed
straight ahead. Keep your knees slightly bent, one hand on your hip;
extend your other arm up and over your head. Slowly bend at your waist
to one side, toward the hand on your hip.
2. Extend both arms overhead. Hold your right hand with your left hand
and bend slowly to the left, using your left arm to pull the right arm
gently over the head and down toward the ground.
3. Repeat with other side.
Quadriceps (front of thigh)
1. Lying on our stomach, pull the heel toward your buttocks with the
opposite hand. Keep the thigh of the leg
being stretched close to the
leg on the floor.
2. The same stretch can be done standing. Do
not allow the thigh to come in front of you and
so not bend forward at the waist.
3. Do this exercise twice – once on each leg.
27
Groin (inside of thigh)
1. Sit on the floor with the soles of your feet together. Gently push knees
down toward the floor with your elbows.
2. Stand with your feet three to four feet apart and turned out slightly.
3. Keep the knee of the leg to be stretched straight, and bend the opposite
knee as you move your body toward the bent leg. Keep your toes
pointed forward.
4. Repeat using the other leg
Hamstrings (back side of upper leg)
1. Sit with one knee bent and the leg to be stretched out straight. Reach for
the toes of the straight leg with the right hand and then the left hand.
2. Repeat with the other leg.
Gluteus (back of hip)
1. Lie on your back. Pull one knee up to your chest while keeping the
opposite leg down on the floor with the knee straight.
2. The same may be done standing.
3. Repeat with the other leg.
Anterior Tibialis (front of shin)
1. Stand with all of your weight on one leg.
Extend the opposite leg forward and flex
and point at the ankle.

Maintenance
Here are some preventative maintenance tips that will keep your treadmill operating
at its best.
Cleaning
When cleaning the exterior of the unit, a non-abrasive cleanser and soft cotton cloth
are strongly recommended. At no time should cleanser be applied directly to any part
of the equipment. Instead, place the non-abrasive cleaning solution on a soft cloth
and wipe down the unit.
• Clean the Display Console and all exterior surfaces regularly.
• Vacuum running belt regularly to keep debris from accumulating.
• Inspect exterior parts regularly for wear and tear, especially the
running belt and deck.
• Inspect area under treadmill and vacuum regularly.

Lubricating
the Running Belt and Deck
Your running deck features a phenolic surface which reduces friction. Use the
included Treadmill Silicone Lubricant Spray (H) (see Treadmill Hardware and
Components Page at the front of the book) for optimum performance and
extended deck and belt life.
To lubricate your deck:
1) Insert the tube into the spray tip. NEVER POINT THE SPRAY TIP OR
SPRAY TUBE TOWARD YOUR FACE.
2) Make sure the treadmill is OFF and unplugged from the power source.
3) Pull up lightly on the tread belt and spray lubricant as evenly as possible
between the underside of the tread belt and the top of the deck. As you
use your treadmill, the lubricant will spread and even out – protecting
your deck and belt.
4) Store silicone lubricant in a safe place and out of the reach of children.
Warning
1) Do not spray lubricant on the top side of the tread belt. The running
surface must retain traction.
2) Inspect tread belt for overspray before use.
3) If you accidentally oversprayed silicone spray on the top side of the
treadbelt or the side rails, clean immediately to prevent accidental injury.
