OPERATION AND ADJUSTMENT
THE PERFORMANT LUBETM WALKING BELT
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.
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.

Adapter
Your treadmill, like any other type of sophisticated
electronic equipment, can be seriously damaged by
sudden voltage changes in your homeÕs 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).
Surge Suppressor
Lug
Metal Screw
Surge suppressors are sold at most hardware stores
and department stores. 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.
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
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.

CONDITIONING GUIDELINES
Burning Fat
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 pre-existing health problems.
To burn fat, you must exercise at a low intensity level
for a sustained period of time. During the first few
minutes of exercise, your body uses easily accessible
carbohydrate calories for energy. Only after the first few
minutes of exercise does your body begin to use stored
fat calories for energy. If your goal is to burn fat, adjust
the intensity of your exercise until your heart rate is
near the low end of your training zone as you exercise.
The following guidelines will help you to plan your exercise program. RememberÑthese are general guidelines. For more detailed information about exercise,
obtain a book or consult your physician.
WARNING:
The pulse sensor is
not a medical device. Various factors,
including your movement, may affect the
accuracy of heart rate readings. The pulse
sensor is intended only as exercise aids in
determining heart rate trends in general.
EXERCISE INTENSITY
Whether your goal is to burn fat or 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. For effective exercise, your heart rate
should be maintained at a level between 71.5% and
85% of your maximum heart rate as you exercise. This
is known as your training zone.
Aerobic Exercise
If your goal is to strengthen your cardiovascular system, your exercise must be Òaerobic.Ó 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 intensity of your exercise until your heart
rate is near the middle of your training zone.
You can find your training zone in the table below.
Training zones are listed according to age and physical
condition.

WORKOUT GUIDELINES
Each workout should include the following three important parts: (1) a warm-up, (2) training zone exercise,
and (3) a cool-down.
Warm-up
Warming up prepares the body for exercise by increasing circulation, delivering more oxygen to the muscles,
and raising the body temperature. Begin each workout
with 5 to 10 minutes of stretching and light exercise to
warm up (see SUGGESTED STRETCHES on page 17).
Training Zone Exercise
After warming up, increase the intensity of your exercise until your heart rate is in your training zone for 20
to 60 minutes. (During the first few weeks of your exercise program, do not keep your heart rate in your training zone for longer than 20 minutes.) Breathe regularly
and deeply as you exerciseÑnever hold your breath.
16
Cool-down
tween workouts. After a few months, you may complete up to five workouts each week if desired.
Finish each workout with 5 to 10 minutes of stretching
to cool down. This will increase the flexibility of your
muscles and will help to prevent post-exercise problems.
The key to success is to make exercise a regular and
enjoyable part of your everyday life.
Exercise Frequency
To maintain or improve your condition, complete three
workouts each week, with at least one day of rest be-
SUGGESTED STRETCHES
The correct form for several basic stretches is shown at the
right. Move slowly as you stretchÑnever bounce.
1
1. Toe Touch Stretch
