Safety Tips
Congratulations on your purchase of a TRUE residential
treadmill. You have chosen a premium piece of exercise
equipment designed to meet your fitness needs for a
lifetime.
Before using your treadmill, please review this manual to
learn about the unit’s features, functions, maintenance
procedures, and safe operation.
SAFETY TIPS:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
9.
Always use the safety key and attach
lanyard to your clothing at about
waist height.
Wear comfortable, good-quality
walking or running shoes.
Warm-up and cool-down periods are
important for a complete workout.
Always straddle the belt and allow it to
start moving before stepping onto it.
Hold the grab bar while adjusting the
controls.
Keeping your eyes focused straight
ahead will help you maintain your
balance.
Adjust your own speed and grade.
Never make adjustments for another
person or allow someone else to make
adjustments for you.
Always allow the belt to stop completely
before dismounting. Gradually slowing
down also minimizes the sensation of
feeling like you are still moving after you
stop.
Allow space behind treadmill and sides
in the event you lose your balance.
10. Always inspect your treadmill to
ensure there are no foreign objects
obstructing the moving parts.
11. To avoid any possibility of being struck
or caught between moving parts,
bystanders should not be within reach
of the treadmill while it is in motion.
12. For safety reasons and to prevent
damage to your treadmill, allow only
ONE person at a time on your machine.
13. Never leave unsupervised children
near your treadmill.
14. Animals should never be allowed on or
near your treadmill.
15. Keep the power cord clear of the
incline system. Allow extra slack for
inclining the machine. Do not run the
power cord under the treadmill.
16. Your treadmill is designed for indoor
use only.
17 . Never use your treadmill around water
or while you are wet. Using the unit
around a pool, hot tub or sauna will
void the warranty.
18 . Do not operate treadmill while using
bottled oxygen.
Learning The Basics
1-3
THE BASICS
Your treadmill is made up of two main sections: the base and
the pedestal.
The base of the treadmill consists of a metal frame, a
shock-absorbing deck system and a powerful 2.5
continuous-duty horsepower DC motor. The motor powers a
pulley system which moves the running belt over the deck.
(See figure 1, page 1-4)
The pedestal mounts on the top of the frame. It places the
displays, information readout and touch keys within easy sight
and reach.
(See figure 1, page 1-4)
SETTING UP YOUR
TREADMILL
IMPORTANT ELECTRICAL
REQUIREMENTS
Place your treadmill on a clean, level surface.
Make sure the electrical cord easily reaches a
grounded three-pronged outlet and has
enough slack to allow the deck to incline
unhindered by the cord. Do not allow the
treadmill assembly to rest on the cord.
Although your treadmill is designed to
operate on most carpeted surfaces, some
deeply padded or heavy shag carpets can
cause damage to the unit. To prevent
damage to your treadmill or carpet, have
someone stand on the deck and make sure
the treadmill belt doesn’t touch the carpet at
any point.
Your TRUE treadmill is designed for indoor
use only. Always keep the control panel out of
direct sunlight.
Your True treadmill requires a dedicated
110 VAC 15 amp grounded outlet circuit.
WARNING: Do not use an extension cord or
an ungrounded outlet. The ground helps
prevent electrical damage to your treadmill
and enhances your safety by preventing
shock.
A GROUNDED OUTLET IS CRITICAL
FOR THE HRC SYSTEM TO FUNCTION
PROPERLY.

ASSEMBLY
TRUE treadmills are shipped in two pieces:
the pedestal assembly (which includes the
control console) and the base.
Instructions for assembling the unit:
1. Remove the protective packaging
materials. NOTE: Do not lift the treadmill
by the motor when removing from carton!
2. Lay pedestal on deck as shown. (Fig. 1)
3. Feed wire harness through reusable wire
ties from left to right. (Fig. 2)
4. Tighten wire ties and tuck excess tie down
between motor and PWM board. (Fig.2)
NOTE: Do not cut off excess wire tie.
These are reusable.
5. Raise top of pedestal into place.
6. Install three of the enclosed screws with lock
washers on each side, then tighten all six
screws. (Fig. 3)
IMPORTANT: Do not operate unless all six
screws are fastened securely. Be sure
screws and lock washers thread into the
holes in pedestal. Reverse procedure
whenever removing the pedestal. Remove
pedestal console only while treadmill is at
zero grade and unplugged.
ELECTRICAL REQUIREMENT:
Your TRUE treadmill requires a dedicated
110 VAC 15 amp grounded outlet circuit.
WARNING: Do not use an extension cord or
an ungrounded outlet. The ground helps
prevent electrical damage to your treadmill and
enhances your safety by preventing shock.
This grounded outlet is critical for the HRC
system to function properly. NOTE: Units
produced for use outside of the U.S.A. will have
voltage indicated on the identification tag.
BELT ADJUSTMENTS
Your treadmill’s running belt has been
properly aligned at the factory. However,
when the treadmill is used on an uneven
surface, please follow these instructions:
PREFERRED METHOD
Level the treadmill by placing shims 1/8” to
3/8” thick under the front wheel and rear
shock absorber on one side. NOTE: This
method will provide extended belt life by
keeping both rollers parallel. Adjusting the
belt tracking by using the roller bolts will
cause the belt to stretch on one side.
Treadbelt Tension & Safety Features
NOTE: Your authorized True dealer
may provide additional support.
ALTERNATIVE METHOD
1. Stand beside the treadmill, insert the safety
key into the bottom of the control panel and
follow operating instructions for running the
treadmill at 5 mph. (Section 2.5)
2. If the belt is off-center to the right, turn the
left roller adjustment bolt counter clock-wise
1/4 turn. If the belt is off-center to the left,
turn the left roller adjustment bolt 1/4 turn
clockwise. (Figure 1 Detail 1)
3. Let the machine run for several minutes to
check the alignment. (Belt alignment does
not need to be perfect). If more correction is
needed, turn the adjustment bolt 1/4 turn
and check again.
TREADBELT TENSION:
To assure maximum life of the treadbelt, roller
and drive motor, make sure the treadbelt
tension is set correctly. (Your treadbelt has
been properly tensioned at the factory.)
1
Figure 1
•Turn both rear roller adjustment bolts
(Detail 1) counter-clockwise until treadbelt
just begins slipping when walking on it, then
turn both rear roller adjustment bolts
clockwise in equal quarter turn increments
until treadbelt stops slipping. NOTE: Be sure
to run on treadbelt to ensure that the treadbelt does not slip while under load.

SAFETY FEATURES
PADDED HAND RAIL
The padded hand rail is mounted to the rear
of the control console. The bar provides a
convenient support to use throughout your
workout.
ON/OFF SWITCH
The on/off switch is located to the right of the
power cord on the front of the machine. It
completely removes AC power from your
treadmill. It is recommended that you use this
switch to turn the machine off after each
workout.
CIRCUIT BREAKER
Your TRUE treadmill is protected from
overload by a 15 amp circuit breaker that can
be reset in the event of a power overload. It is
located to the left of the power cord.
SAFETY KEY AND LANYARD
You can protect yourself from injuries resulting
from unexpected loss of balance by attaching
the lanyard to your clothing at about waist
height when you use your treadmill. When the
safety key is detached, your treadmill will not
operate. Storing the safety key in a secured
location while your treadmill is not in use will
prevent children and other unauthorized
users from operating your treadmill.
REAR ROLLER SHIELDS
Steel guards over the ends of the rear roller
prevent towels and other items from getting
caught in the running belt.
FULLY ENCLOSED MOTOR
The motor and flywheel are fully enclosed in a
protective metal compartment.

THE TRUE S.O.F.T. SYSTEM IS A
DIFFERENCE YOU CAN FEEL.
True’s unique S.O.F. T. System is the most
advanced shock-absorbing system available.
It cushions the initial impact and then
transitions to a firm, secure surface for
push-off providing lateral stability throughout,
eliminating deck shift from side to side. The
benefit is less stress on the ankles, knees,
hips and back.
ADJUST THE FEEL WITH
S.O.F.T. SELECT.
All True S.O.F.T. Select series treadmills take
the user to a new level of comfort. Now you
can “personalize” the treadbelt surface to
suit your walking or running needs, from soft
to firm or anywhere in between.

Cardiointeractive & Heart Rate Control
INTRODUCTION
You are now the owner of the most sophisticated
Heart Rate Control treadmill available. The TRUE
HRC is unique and patented. It accommodates
users from rehabilitation to world class athletes, and
all those in between. The TRUE HRC treadmill
allows you to do a completely hands free heart rate
controlled workout using speed, grade or both.
By training at a specific target heart rate, you can
exercise at a more efficient cardiovascular level.
The TRUE HRC system is unique because you
must enter the key parameters of your workout;
target heart rate, maximum speed, maximum grade,
and time, prior to beginning your HRC workout. As
you approach your target heart rate, the treadmill’s
computer takes over and changes the speed and/or
grade automatically to keep you near your target
heart rate. This gives you a completely “hands free”
workout.
RECOMMENDATIONS
Before selecting a target heart rate control workout, it
is important to use the treadmill for several workouts
in the manual mode while monitoring your heart rate.
You can monitor your heart rate during workouts by
wearing the heart rate transmitter included with your
treadmill.
After you have spent some time learning how your
heart responds to different levels of speed and grade,
you will have a better understanding of how to select
the maximum speed and maximum grade required to
reach your target heart rate.
CONSULT YOUR PHYSICIAN TO DETERMINE
YOUR TARGET HEART RATE.
WORKOUT GUIDELINES
1. Target Heart Rate Training
(Heart Rate Workouts 1-5):
Preset your target heart rate, maximum speed,
maximum grade, and time of workout. These are
time-based workouts. The distance traveled will
vary depending on speed.
2. 2 Mile, 4 Mile, 5K, and 10K Target Heart Rate
Training (Model 500CI/550 only)
For these workouts you preset target heart rate,
maximum speed, and maximum grade. These
are distance-based workouts. The duration of the
workout will depend on your speed.
2-10
3.
Interval Heart Rate Training (Model 500CI/550 Only)
Interval heart rate training takes your workout to
an even higher level. Interval training allows you to
program periods of rest between periods of work.
For each workout, you enter target heart rate,
maximum speed, maximum grade, duration of
workout, and duration of work and rest intervals.
These are time-based workouts. The distance
traveled will depend on your speed.
4. Cruise Control (see 2-16)
Manual workout with heart rate transmitter. When
you reach desired heart rate, press cruise control
key and it’s hands-free.
5. Manual Workout:
This is a completely user controlled workout. You
control the speed and the grade throughout your work
out. Your heart rate may be monitored during this
workout, but it is not heart rate controlled.
6. Programs:
There are 4 preprogrammed workouts:
• Hill Interval workout
• Weight Loss workout
• Cardiovascular workout
• Speed Interval workout
Each workout has 9 levels of intensity. The
treadmill controls both the speed and grade.
These are not heart rate controlled, but will
monitor heart rate.
User determines duration of programs are 15:00
to 99:00 minutes.
7. User Program:
A total of 50 changes can be made to speed
and/or grade in a user program. One change per
30 second time block, IE: (0-:30, :30-1:00, 1:001:30) can be made.
8. Method Used To Increase Heart Rate:
To raise your heart rate in the HRC mode, speed
will always increase until maximum speed is
attained, followed by grade (if grade is used in the
workout).
9. Method Used To Decrease Heart Rate:
To lower heart rate in the HRC mode, grade will
always decrease until zero grade is reached,
followed by speed (if grade is used in the workout).
10. Speed Change:
Each change in speed is in .1 M.P
. H. increments.
11. Grade Change:
Each change in grade is in .5% grade increments.
NOTE: The heart rate control workouts are files which store workout parameters once you have completed an
HRC program. You do not need to enter all parameters each time you use the same workout. Just insert the
safety key, select which file or workout you want, and press start.
2-11
True Target Heart Rate Control: How It Works
This unique, simple, and safe system is
easy to use and understand.
The user first sets their personal
maximums for both speed and grade. This
allows the user to customize and create a
variety of workouts. By setting personal
maximums for speed and grade, the user is
provided safe workouts that fit their
capabilities. Once this data is entered, along
with target heart rate and workout time, the
user is ready to start their Heart Rate Control
workout.
The initial stage of the Heart Rate Control
workout is the warm-up stage and allows the
user the flexibility to adjust their speed or
grade at anytime. The warm-up stage is not
predetermined by the amount of time input
prior to workout, and the user may take as
much time as they wish to approach their
target heart rate. The warm-up stage ends
when the user’s heart rate is ten beats below
the pre-set target heart rate.
At this point, the user enters the Heart Rate
Control stage, and the treadmill’s computer
takes control of both the speed and grade
(hands free).
The treadmill software gradually increases
the user’s heart rate to within 10 beats of the
target heart rate.
In the situation where workload needs to be
increased in order to elevate the heart rate,
the speed will be increased first in 1/10 mph
increments.
If needed, the speed will continue to
increase up to the pre-set maximum. If the
user still requires additional workload to raise
the heart rate, the grade will be raised in .5%
increments up to the maximum pre-set grade
(unless zero grade was entered).
Conversely, whenever the workload needs
to be reduced in order to lower the heart rate,
the grade will always be reduced first. The
grade will be reduced to zero (if required),
before speed is reduced.
EXAMPLES OF HOW HRC CAN WORK
FOR YOU:
Example #1:
A user who physically cannot walk over
2.5 mph can safely use heart rate
control by entering maximum speed of
2.5 in a Heart Rate Control workout.
Example #2:
A runner can run up to a speed of 10 mph,
without hills, by entering a maximum
speed of 10 mph and a maximum grade
of 0%.
Example #3:
A walker enters a maximum speed of
4.0 mph and a maximum grade of 6%.
The walker is limited to a maximum
speed of 4.0 mph and grade will be
used if required to elevate the heart
rate up to a maximum of 6%.
Optional TRUE-UltraCoach software and
RS 232 port.
TRUE 500 HRC and CI treadmills are
equipped to receive an RS 232 port. This
allows your True treadmill to connect to your
personal computer and utilize True’s optional
TRUE-UltraCoach software. The RS 232
port is included with the purchase of TRUEUltraCoach.
True Ultracoach is a prescriptive software
package that takes you through the process
of a fitness test and then prescribes workouts
based on your fitness test and workout
history. This software package also graphs
and stores workouts to be used as a base of
reference for future prescriptive workouts.

• To lower heart rate in the HRC mode, grade
will always decrease first, followed by
speed.
• If you enter the HRC stage, below 5mph,
the speed you enter will be the maximum
speed of your workout. i.e.: If you like to walk
at a maximum speed of 3.8 mph, you should
enter HRC at 3.8 mph.
• If you enter the HRC stage above 5 mph,
you will have an additional 1 mph of speed.
i.e.: If you enter HRC at 6 mph, your
maximum attainable speed in the HRC
stage will be 7 mph.
• If at any time you enter the HRC stage with
grade, you will have an additional 4% of
grade available in the HRC stage. i.e.: If you
enter the HRC stage at 1% grade your
maximum attainable grade will be 5%.

that you spend an equal amount of time in the cool
down stage as you did in the warm up stage or, a
minimum of at least 2 minutes. Press
when you are finished!
NOTE: Workout totals of average heart rate, distance, calories will be displayed at the end of your
workout. If while in the HRC stage you prematurely end your workout, you will enter the cool
down stage and your work load will remain
constant. You may then manually adjust speed
and grade.
NOTE: Accumulated data of average heart rate,
distance, calories, and time is displayed each time
is pressed.
Heart Rate Control Important Points
• The Heart Rate Monitor strap provided with
your treadmill should be worn directly against
you skin, 1-2 inches below the pectoral
muscles/breast line. Initially the transmission
signal for your heart rate may be erratic or
nonexistent. Perspiration on your skin is
necessary for proper transmission. In most
cases, by the end of your warm-up,
transmission becomes consistent and
accurate. If not, saline solution should be used
to moisten the sensors on the back of the
strap. Women should be careful to place the `
transmitter below their bra line. If the
transmitter strap is adjusted or moved while
exercising, communication may be temporarily
affected.
• If communication is lost for 30 seconds, the
treadmill will automatically shut off. It is
important to keep the transmitter adjusted
properly.
• The transmitter emits a fairly weak signal to
the receiver, so interference from more
powerful airwaves (everything from other
exercising equipment to airplanes) is not
uncommon. The good news is that
interference is usually quite brief. If you
continue to have intermittent heart rate
display problems, consult your local service
technician. The problem may be with the
transmitter batteries.
• Oxygen intake directly affects your heart
rate. To prevent your heart rate from spiking
up, maintain a constant rate of oxygen intake.
Maintaining a fluid motion while walking or
running and refraining from talking helps to
keep your heart rate from spiking.
Note: Talking while in the HRC stage can
cause your heart rate to rise independent
of your workload and cause the software to
make necessary changes. This will cause
inappropriate speed and/or grade changes,
and affect the efficiency of your HRC workout.
• A grounded outlet is critical for the HRC
system to function properly.
• If erroneous heart readings are displayed
above the target selected, you can pull the
transmitter portion away from your chest for
several seconds. This will keep you from
exiting HRC.
2-20
• Two users wearing the same kind of transmitter
at the same time, in close proximity, may cause
false heart rate display readings.
• Use only the transmitter provided with your
TRUE HRC Treadmill, or a Polar standard
transmitter.
• Use dedicated 110 VAC, grounded outlet to
help prevent interference.
Your TRUE HRC Treadmill is designed to meet
the needs of both walkers and runners by
adjusting speed and grade accordingly:
• To raise your heart rate in the HRC mode,
speed will always increase first, until you reach
your maximum speed, followed by grade (if
grade is used in the workout).
• To lower your heart rate in the HRC mode,
grade will always decrease first, until you reach
0% grade, followed by speed (if grade is used in
the workout).
• Each change of speed is .1 MPH increments.
• Each change of grade is .5% grade increments.
• For examples of workout maximum speed
and maximum grade, refer to program charts
on page 2-9.
HEART RATE SAFETY PARAMETERS
Your TRUE HRC Treadmill computer
software is programmed with the following
safety parameters:
• If your heart rate exceeds your target by 12
beats, there will be a 30% MET reduction in
workload to reduce your heart rate.
• If your heart rate exceeds your target by 20
beats, the unit will automatically shut off as a
precautionary measure. (Be cautious when
selecting your target heart rate so the 20
beat variance will not exceed your maximum
heart rate as determined by your physician).

The F.I.T. Formula
THE
F.I.T. FORMULA
(Frequency, Intensity,Time)
YOUR FITNESS PROGRAM
You can get valuable fitness benefits from your
TRUE Treadmill. Using the treadmill regularly
may increase the ability of your heart and
lungs to supply oxygen and nutrients to
exercising muscles over an extended period of
time. The treadmill will also help you
develop added muscle endurance and
balanced strength throughout your body.
DETERMINING YOUR NEEDS
Calculate your maximum heart rate as a first
step in developing your fitness program. The
formula to calculate average maximum heart
rate for one minute is 220 beats per minute
minus your age. To find your pulse, locate a
vein on your neck or inside your wrist, then
count beats for ten seconds, then multiply by
six. (Refer to chart on page 2-22.)
It’s also important to know your target
training zone or target heart rate. The
American Heart Association (AHA) defines
target heart rate as 60-75 percent of your
maximum heart rate. This is high enough to
condition, but well within safe limits. The
AHA recommends that you aim for the lower
part of the target zone (60 percent) during
the first few months of your exercise program.
As you gradually progress you can increase
your target to 75 percent.According to the
AHA, “Exercise above 75 percent of the
maximum heart rate may be too strenuous
unless you are in excellent physical condition.
Exercise below 60 percent gives your heart
and lungs little conditioning.”
In addition to monitoring your heart rate as
you exercise, be certain of how quickly your
heart rate recovers. If your heart rate is over
120 beats per minute five minutes after
exercising, or is higher than normal the
morning after exercising, your exertion may
be too strenuous for your current level of
fitness. Reducing the intensity of your workout
is recommended.
The age-adjusted target heart rates indicated
in the previous chart reflect averages. A
variety of factors (including medication,
emotional state, temperature, and other
conditions) can affect the exercise heart rate
appropriate for you.
WARNING: Consult your doctor to establish
the exercise intensity (target heart rate zone)
appropriate for your age and condition before
beginning any exercise program.
BEGINNING YOUR
EXERCISE PROGRAM
WARM-UP: Slow and Deliberate Exercise
You are not warmed up until you begin to
perspire lightly and breath more deeply.
Warming up prepares your heart and other
muscles for more intense exercise and helps
you avoid premature exhaustion. Begin each
workout by walking even if you plan to run.
Start slowly, exploring different speeds until
you can comfortably sustain your speed, a
suggested minimum of three minutes.
Perspiration on your brow is a good indicator
of a thorough warm-up. The older you are,
the longer your warm-up period should be.
WORKOUT: Brisk and Rhythmic Exercise
The workout trains and conditions your heart,
lungs, and muscles to operate more efficiently.
Increase exercise in response to your heart
rate to train and strengthen your cardiovascular
system. Concentrate on moving your arms and
legs smoothly. Walk naturally and avoid
jerking motions that can cause pulled
muscles, sprained joints, and loss of balance.
COOL DOWN: Slow and Relaxed Exercise
Cooling down relaxes your muscles and gradually
lowers your heart rate. Slowly reduce your
workload until your heart rate is below 60 percent
of your maximum heart rate. The cool down
should last at least five minutes, followed by
some light stretching to enhance your flexibility.
The F.I.T. Formula
UNDERSTANDING THE
F.I.T. FORMULA
The workout portion of your exercise
program consists of three major variables:
Frequency, Intensity, and Time.
FREQUENCY: How Often You Exercise
You should exercise three to five times a week
to improve your cardiovascular and muscle
fitness. Improvements are minimal with less
frequent exercise.
INTENSITY: How Hard You Exercise
Intensity of exercise is reflected in your heart
rate. Exercise must be sufficiently rigorous to
strengthen your heart muscle and condition
your cardiovascular system. Only your
doctor can prescribe the target training heart
range appropriate for your particular needs
and physical condition.
• Start with exercise that stimulates you to
breathe more deeply.
• Alternate periods of moderate and easy
exercise to help your body adapt to new
levels of exertion without unnecessary
strain.
• If you are just beginning an exercise
program, you may be most comfortable
walking at a speed of 1-2 MPH. As you
use your treadmill regularly, higher speeds
may be more comfortable and more
effective.
• Inability to maintain a smooth, rhythmic
motion suggests that your speed and/or
elevation may be too great.
• If you feel out of breath before you have
exercised 12 minutes, you are probably
overdoing it.
As your fitness level improves, you will need
to increase your workload in order to reach
your target heart rate. The first increase may
be necessary after two to four weeks of
regular exercise. Never exceed your target
heart rate zone.
2-24
Increase the speed and/or incline on the
treadmill to raise your heart rate to the level
recommended by your doctor. The incline
feature can be used to greatly increase the
workload without increasing speed. The
chart below indicates how much the effort
changes with each percent of grade at
popular speeds for a person weighing 155
pounds.
METS
One MET is the amount
of energy your body
uses when you’re
resting. If a physical
activity has an equivalent
of 6 METS, its energy
demands are 6 times
that of your resting state.
The MET is a useful
measurement, because it
accounts for differences
in body weight.

TIME: How Long You
Exercise
Sustained exercise conditions your heart,
lungs, and muscles. The longer you are able
to sustain exercise within your target heart
range, the greater the aerobic benefits.
• To begin, maintain two to three minutes of
steady, rhythmic exercise, then check your
heart rate.
• The initial goal for aerobic training is 12
continuous minutes.
• Increase your workout time approximately
one or two minutes per week until you are
able to maintain 20-30 continuous minutes
at your training heart rate.
USING THE F.I.T. FORMULA
The F.I.T. formula and chart are designed to
help you begin a program tailored to your
needs. You may wish to keep an exercise log
to monitor your progress.
2-25
The F.I.T. Formula
BEGINNING FITNESS PROGRAM
If you cannot sustain 12 continuous minutes in
your target heart rate zone, exercise several
times a day to get into the habit of exercise.
Try to reach and maintain 60-65 percent of
your maximum heart rate. Alternate exercise
with periods of rest until you can sustain 12
continuous minutes of exercise at 60-65 percent
of your maximum heart rate.
Begin exercising in three to five minute sessions.
ESTABLISHING AEROBIC FITNESS
If you can sustain 12 but not 20 continuous
minutes of exercise in your target heart rate zone:
• Exercise three to five days a week.
Rest at least two days per week.
• Try to reach and maintain 60-75 percent of
your maximum heart rate with moderate
rhythmic exercise.
• Begin with 12 continuous minutes.
Increase your time by one to two minutes
per week until you can sustain 20
continuous minutes.
MAINTAINING AEROBIC FITNESS
If you can sustain 20 continuous minutes in
your target heart rate zone, begin to increase
the length and intensity of your workout:
• Exercise four to six days a week or on
alternate days.
• Try to reach and maintain 70-85 percent of
your maximum heart rate with moderate to
somewhat hard exercise.
• Exercise for 20-30 minutes.
• Exercise four to five times a week.
• Try to reach and maintain 60-75 percent of
your maximum heart rate with moderate
exercise.
• Exercise for 30-45 minutes at 60-65
percent of your target heart rate.
Here are some tips to achieving your weight
management goal:
• Consume most of your dietary calories at
breakfast and lunch, and eat a light dinner.
Do not eat close to bedtime.
• Exercise before meals. Moderate exercise
will help suppress your appetite.
• Take exercise breaks throughout the day to
help increase metabolism (calorie
expenditure).
ATHLETIC TRAINING
When you are training to improve strength
and performance:
• Exercise four to five days a week.
• Alternate exercise days and intervals of
hard to very hard exercise with easy to
moderate exercise.
• Exercise for 30 minutes or longer.

MANAGING WEIGHT
Consistent aerobic exercise will help you
change your body composition by lowering
your percentage of body fat. If weight loss is
a goal, combine an increase in the length of
your workouts with a moderate decrease in
caloric intake. For weight control, how long
and how often you exercise is more important
than how hard you exercise.
WARNING: These strategies are intended for
average healthy adults. If you have pain or
tightness in your chest, an irregular heartbeat,
shortness of breath or if you feel faint or have
any discomfort when you exercise- STOP!
Consult your physician before continuing.
Remember, every workout should begin with a
warm-up and finish with a cool-down.
Care & Maintenance
3-1
Your TRUE treadmill is constructed of quality
materials and manufactured to provide many
years of faithful service. Simple routine
cleaning and a preventive maintenance
program will extend the life of your treadmill.
4. Plug the power cord into the electrical outlet.
5. Immediately after applying the lubricant
WALK on the treadmill for 3-4 minutes at
1 mph. You must WALK on all areas of
treadbelt to ensure the lubricant is evenly
distributed.
NOTE: To prevent electrical shock, be certain
the treadmill is turned off and unplugged from
the electrical outlet before performing any
cleaning or routine maintenance.
Your TRUE dealer can provide lubricant and
additional instructions, or you may call TRUE
Fitness at 1-800-426-6570.
TREADBELT AND
RUNNING DECK LUBRICATION:
For maximum treadmill life, True Treadmills are
designed to require a routine lubrication as
part of a general maintenance for the
machine. This simple maintenance procedure
will prevent premature wear of the treadbelt,
running deck and drive motor system.
Lubrication is a necessary maintenance
procedure, and failure to lubricate can result
in a voided warranty, please follow the
recommended lubrication schedule as
closely as possible.
USAGE
1-4 mph
4-7 mph
7 mph and above
LUBRICATION
once per year
every 6 months
every 3 months
This schedule is the recommended application
for a single user, up to 30 minutes per use on a
daily basis . If there is more than one user
regularly using the treadmill, please contact
True Fitness for the recommended lubrication
schedule.
APPLICATION OF LUBRICANT:
The best time to apply lubricant is
IMMEDIATELY after a workout. The deck will
take the lubricant best when it is warm.
1. If not immediately after a workout, walk on
the treadmill for 2-3 minutes at 3-4 mph.
2. Turn off the power and disconnect the
treadmill from the electrical outlet.
3. Lift the treadbelt edge near the front 1/3 of
belt. Apply 1/4 tsp. of lubricant from both
sides of the unit as close to center of the
running deck as possible.
CAUTION: USE ONLY TRUE LUBRICANT.
DO NOT USE TEFLON, SILICONE OR
GRAPHITE. USE OF OTHER LUBRICANTS
WILL ADVERSELY AFFECT THE
PERFORMANCE OF THE TREADMILL
AND VOID THE WARRANTY.
CLEANING DAILY: Perspiration should be
wiped from the control console and treadmill
surfaces after your workout.
CLEANING WEEKLY: You should wipe
down your treadmill once a week with a water
dampened, soft cloth. Be careful not to get
excessive moisture between the edge of the
digital display panel and the console, as this
might create an electrical hazard or cause the
electronics to fail.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT CLEAN OR WIPE
THE TOP OF THE DECK UNDER THE
CENTER OF THE RUNNING BELT.
MONTHLY: Clean dust and dirt that might
accumulate under and behind your treadmill
once a month. Small rubber particles from
the soles of walking shoes will accumulate
alongside the belt and also behind the unit.
Expert service and maintenance at a reasonable
cost are available through your factory-trained,
authorized TRUE dealer. The dealer maintains a
stock of repair and replacement parts and has
the technical knowledge to meet your service
needs.
