­TENSIONING THE RUNNING BELT
IMPORTANT
PRECAUTIONS
The running belt has been properly adjusted at the
factory before it was shipped. At times the belt can
move off-center during shipment.
CAUTION: Running belt should NOT be moving during
tensioning. Over-tightening the running belt can
cause excessive wear on the treadmill as well as its
components. Never over-tighten the belt.
ASSEMBLY
If you can feel a slipping sensation when running on the
treadmill, the running belt must be tightened. In most
cases, the belt has stretched from use, causing the
belt to slip. This is a normal and common adjustment.
To eliminate this slipping, turn the treadmill off
and tension both the rear roller bolts using the
supplied Allen wrench, turning them 1/4 TURN to the
right as shown. Turn the treadmill on and check for
slipping. Repeat if necessary, but NEVER TURN the
roller bolts more than 1/4 turn at a time. Belt is properly
tensioned when the slipping sensation is gone.
BEFORE
YOU BEGIN
CENTERING THE RUNNING BELT
The running belt has been properly adjusted at the
factory before it was shipped. At times the belt can
move off-center during shipment. Before operating the
treadmill, make sure the belt is centered and remains
centered to maintain smooth operation.

INTRODUCTION
CO N D I T I O N I N G G U I DELINES
IMPORTANT
PRECAUTIONS
Always consult your physician before beginning an exercise program.
HOW OFTEN? (Frequency of Workouts)
ASSEMBLY
The American Heart Association recommends that you exercise at least 3 to 4 days per week to maintain
cardiovascular fitness. If you have other goals such as weight or fat loss, you will achieve your goal faster with
more frequent exercise. Whether it’s 3 days or 6 days, remember that your ultimate goal should be to make
exercise a lifetime habit. Many people are successful staying with a fitness program if they set aside a specific
time of day to exercise. It doesn’t matter whether it’s in the morning before breakfast, during lunch hour or while
watching the evening news. What’s more important is that it’s a time that allows you to keep a schedule, and a
time when you won’t be interrupted. To be successful with your fitness program, you have to make it a priority in
your life. So decide on a time, pull out your day planner and pencil in your exercise times for the next month!
HOW LONG? (Duration of Workouts)
BEFORE
YOU BEGIN
For aerobic exercise benefits, it’s recommended that you exercise from between 24 and 60 minutes per session.
But start slowly and gradually increase your exercise times. If you’ve been sedentary during the past year, it may
be a good idea to keep your exercise times to as little as five minutes initially. Your body will need time to adjust
to the new activity. If your goal is weight loss, a longer exercise session at lower intensities has been found to
be most effective. A workout time of 48 minutes or more is recommended for best weight loss results.
HOW HARD? (Intensity of Workouts)
CONDITIONING
GUIDELINES
TREADMILL
OPERATION
How hard you workout is also determined by your goals. If you use your treadmill to prepare for a 5K run, you will
probably work out at a higher intensity than if your goal is general fitness. Regardless of your long term goals,
always begin an exercise program at low intensity. Aerobic exercise does not have to be painful to be beneficial!
There are two ways to measure your exercise intensity. The first is by monitoring your heart rate (using the grip
pulse handlebars or a wireless chest transmitter - may be sold separately), and the second is by evaluating your
perceived exertion level (this is simpler than it sounds!).
PERCEIVED EXERTION LEVEL
25
LIMITED
WARRANTY
TROUBLESHOOTING
& MAINTENANCE
A simple way to gauge your exercise intensity is to evaluate your perceived exertion level. While exercising, if you
are too winded to maintain a conversation without gasping, you are working out too hard. A good rule of thumb
is to work to the point of exhilaration, not exhaustion. If you cannot catch your breath, it’s time to slow down.
Always be aware of these warning signs of overexertion.

your heart needs to beat to
achieve a desired workout effect.
It is represented as a percentage
of the maximum number of times
your heart can beat per minute.
Target Zone will vary for each
individual, depending on age,
current level of conditioning,
and personal fitness goals. The
American Heart Association
recommends working-out at a
Target Heart Rate Zone of between
60% and 75% of your maximum
heart rate. A beginner will want to
workout in the 60% range while
a more experienced exerciser will
want to workout in the 70-75%
range. See chart for reference.

STRETCHING
IMPORTANT
PRECAUTIONS
STRETCH FIRST
ASSEMBLY
Before using your product, it is best to take a few minutes doing a few gentle stretching exercises.
Stretching prior to exercise will improve flexibility and reduce chances of exercise related injury. Ease into
each of these stretches with a slow gentle motion. Do not stretch to the point of pain. Make sure not to
bounce while doing these stretches.
1. STANDING CALF MUSCLE STRETCH
BEFORE
YOU BEGIN
Stand near a wall with the toes of your left foot about 18" from the wall, and
the right foot about 12" behind the other foot. Lean forward, pushing against
the wall with your palms. Keep your heels flat and hold this position for a
count of 15 seconds. Make sure that you do not bounce while stretching.
Repeat on the other side.

GUIDELINES
Using a wall to provide balance, grasp your left ankle
with your left hand and hold your foot against the back
of your thigh for 15 seconds. Repeat with your right
ankle and hand.
3. SITTING HAMSTRING & LOWER BACK MUSCLE STRETCH
TROUBLESHOOTING
& MAINTENANCE
Sit on the floor with your legs together and straight out in front of you. Do
not lock your knees. Extend your fingers towards your toes and hold for a

TIPS
INTRODUCTION
TIPS
THE IMPORTANCE OF WARM UP & COOL DOWN
IMPORTANT
PRECAUTIONS
WARM UP
The first 2 to 5 minutes of a workout should be devoted to warming up. The warm-up will limber your
muscles and prepare them for more strenuous exercise. Make sure that you warm-up on your product at a
slow pace. The warm up should gradually bring your heart rate into your Target Heart Rate Zone.
COOL DOWN
ASSEMBLY
Never stop exercising suddenly! A cool-down period of 3-5 minutes allows your heart to readjust to the
decreased demand. Make sure that your cool down period consists of a very slow pace to allow your heart
rate to lower. After the cool-down, repeat the stretching exercises listed above to loosen and relax your
muscles.
TIPS
ACHIEVING YOUR FITNESS GOALS
BEFORE
YOU BEGIN
An important step in developing a long term fitness program is to determine your goals. Is your primary
goal for exercising to lose weight? Improve muscle? Reduce stress? Prepare for the spring racing schedule?
Knowing what your goals are will help you develop a more successful exercise program. Below are some
common exercise goals:
TREADMILL
OPERATION
• Weight Loss - lower intensity, longer duration workouts
• Improve Body Shape and Tone - interval workouts, alternate between high and low intensities
• Increased Energy Level - more frequent daily workouts
• Improved Sports Performance - high intensity workouts
• Improved Cardiovascular Endurance - moderate intensity, longer duration workouts
CONDITIONING
GUIDELINES
If possible try to define your personal goals in precise, measurable terms, and then put your goals in writing.
The more specific you can be, the easier it will be to track your progress. If your goals are long term, divide
them up into monthly and weekly segments. Longer term goals can lose some of the immediate motivation
benefits. Short term goals are easier to achieve. Your console provides you with several readouts that can
be used to record your progress. You can track Distance, Calories or Time.
TROUBLESHOOTING
& MAINTENANCE
KEEPING AN EXERCISE DIARY
To make your personal exercise log book, photocopy the weekly and monthly log sheets, which are located
on the following pages, or you can print them off of your computer by going to:

COMMON PRODUCT QUESTIONS
ARE THE SOUNDS MY TREADMILL MAKES NORMAL?
All treadmills make a certain type of thumping noise due to the belt riding over the rollers, especially new
treadmills. This noise will diminish over time, although may not totally go away. Over time, the belt will
stretch, causing the belt to ride smoother over the rollers.
WHY IS THE TREADMILL I PURCHASED LOUDER THAN THE ONE AT THE STORE?
ASSEMBLY
All fitness products seem quieter in a large store showroom because there is generally more background noise
than in your home. Also, there will be less reverberation on a carpeted concrete floor than on a wood overlay
floor. Sometimes a heavy rubber mat will help reduce reverberation through the floor. If a fitness product is
placed close to a wall, there will be more reflected noise.
WHEN SHOULD I BE WORRIED ABOUT A NOISE?
As long as the sounds your treadmill makes are no louder than a normal conversational tone of voice, it is
considered normal noise.

TREADMILL
OPERATION
Does the red light on the ON/OFF switch light up?
If yes:
• Double check that all connections are secure, especially the console cable. Unplug and reconnect the console
cable to verify.
• Make sure the console cable is not pinched or damaged in any way.
• Turn the power off, unplug the power cable and wait 60 seconds. Remove motor cover. Wait until all red LED
lights have gone off on the motor control board before proceeding. Next, verify that none of the wires connected
to the lower board are loose or disconnected.
If no:
• Verify that the outlet the machine is plugged into is functional. Double check that the breaker has not tripped,
it is on a dedicated 20-amp circuit, it is not on a GFCI equipped outlet, and it is not plugged into a power
strip/surge protector or extension cord.
• The power cord is not pinched or damaged and is properly plugged into the outlet AND the machine.
• The power switch is turned to the ON position.
INTRODUCTION
PROBLEM: The treadmill circuit breaker trips during a workout.
SOLUTION: Verify the following:
• Make sure the treadmill is plugged into a dedicated 20-amp circuit.
• Verify that you do not have the machine on an extension cord or surge protector.
• Confirm that the machine is not plugged into a GFCI-equipped outlet or on a circuit that has a GFCI‑equipped outlet on it.
IMPORTANT
PRECAUTIONS
PROBLEM: The running belt does not stay centered during a workout.
SOLUTION: Verify the following:
• Make sure the treadmill is on a level surface.
• Verify that the belt is properly tightened and centered (Refer to the Adjustment section for detailed directions).
PROBLEM: Operating speed appears inaccurate.
SOLUTION: Auto-calibrate the treadmill:
ASSEMBLY
• Power on the treadmill and have the safety key in position on the
console. Press and hold the elevation “+” and speed “-” buttons for
approximately 5 seconds to enter the Engineering Mode. The console
will beep and “ENG0” appears in the display.
• Press the Speed “+” or “-” button until “ENG2” appears in the display.
• Press, “ENTER” to select. Press, “START” to begin. The treadmill
running belt will begin to move automatically and the auto-calibration
sequence will properly set and store the speed values.
• Upon successful calibration, the treadmill will beep several times. The
console will automatically exit Engineering Mode and return to the
start-up screen.
WARNING
DO NOT stand on running belt while
BEFORE
YOU BEGIN
calibrating – stand on the guide
rails. Treadmill will fluctuate between
low and high speeds for several
minutes until calibration is complete.
TROUBLESHOOTING - HEART RATE
Check your exercise environment for sources of interference such as fluorescent lights, computers, underground fencing, home
security systems or appliances containing large motors. These items may cause erratic heart rate readouts.
TREADMILL
OPERATION
You may experience an erratic readout under the following conditions:
• Gripping the heart rate handlebars too tight. Try to maintain moderate pressure while holding onto the heart rate handlebars.
• Constant movement and vibration due to constantly holding the heart rate handlebars while exercising. If you are receiving
erratic heart rate readouts, try to only hold the grips long enough to monitor your heart rate.
• When you are breathing heavily during a workout.
• When your hands are constricted by wearing a ring.
• When your hands are dry or cold. Try to moisten your palms by rubbing them together to warm.
• Anyone with heavy arrhythmia.
• Anyone with arteriosclerosis or peripheral circulation disorder.
• Anyone whose skin on the measuring palm is especially thick.

WARRANTY
In order for Customer Tech Support to service your treadmill they may need to ask detailed questions about the symptoms that are
occurring. Some troubleshooting questions that may be asked are:
• How long has this problem been occurring?
• Does this problem occur with every use? With every user?
• If you are hearing a noise, does it come from the front or the back? What kind of noise is it (thumping, grinding, squeaking,
chirping etc.)?
• Has the machine been lubricated and maintained per the maintenance schedule?
32
Answering these and other questions will give the technicians the ability to send proper replacement parts and the service necessary
to get you and your AFG treadmill running again!
INTRODUCTION
MA I N T E N A N C E
IMPORTANT
PRECAUTIONS
Cleanliness of your treadmill and its operation environment will keep maintenance problems and service calls to a
minimum. For this reason, we recommend that the following preventive maintenance schedule be followed.
ASSEMBLY
AFTER EACH USE (DAILY)
Clean and inspect, following these steps:
• Turn off the treadmill with the on/off switch, then unplug the power cord at the wall outlet.
• Wipe down the running belt, deck, motor cover, and console casing with a damp cloth. Never use solvents, as they
can cause damage to the treadmill.
• Inspect the power cord. If the power cord is damaged, contact AFG.
• Make sure the power cord is not underneath the treadmill or in any other area where it can become pinched or cut.
• Check the tension and alignment of the running belt. Make sure that the treadmill belt will not damage any other
components on the treadmill by being misaligned.
BEFORE
YOU BEGIN
EVERY WEEK
Clean underneath the treadmill, following these steps:
• Turn off the treadmill with the on/off switch, then unplug the power cord at the wall outlet.
• Move the treadmill to a remote location.
• Wipe or vacuum any dust particles or other objects that may have accumulated underneath the treadmill.
• Return the treadmill to its previous position.
Please contact AFG with questions about applying lubricant to your treadmill.
CONDITIONING
GUIDELINES
RUNNING BELT
TROUBLESHOOTING
& MAINTENANCE
• Turn off the treadmill with the on/off switch, then unplug the
power cord at the wall outlet.
• Loosen both the rear roller bolts. (For best results, place two removable
marks on both sides of the frame and note roller position). Once
the belt is loosened, take the bottle of lubricant and apply it to the
entire top surface of the running deck. Tighten both rear roller bolts
(matching up the marks for proper position) to original position. After
you have applied lubricant, plug in the power cord, insert the safety
key, start the treadmill and walk on the belt for two minutes to spread
the lubricant.
• Lubricate the air shocks with Teflon based spray.
• Once lubrication is complete, reset the console by pressing and holding
‘STOP’ and Speed ‘+’ buttons for 5 seconds.
LUBRICATION

LIMITED
WARRANTY
EVERY 6 MONTHS OR 150 MILES
It is necessary to lubricate your treadmill running deck every six months
or 150 miles to maintain optimal performance of your treadmill. Once the
treadmill reaches 150 miles, the console will prompt you to lubricate the
treadmill. Only use lubricant provided by AFG!
TREADMILL
OPERATION
EVERY MONTH - IMPORTANT!
• Turn off the treadmill with the on/off switch, then unplug the power cord at the wall outlet.
• Inspect all assembly bolts of the machine for proper tightness.
• Turn off the treadmill and wait 60 seconds.
• Wait until ALL LED lights turn off.
• Remove screws holding motor cover to the frame. Remove the lower mast bolts in order to slide the motor cover
upwards. While sliding the motor cover up the masts, be careful not to scratch the paint. Prop up the motor cover
to continue.
• Clean the motor and lower board area to eliminate any lint or dust particles that may have accumulated. Failure to
do so may result in premature failure of key electrical components.
• Vacuum and wipe down the belt with a damp cloth. Vacuum any black/white particles that may accumulate around
the unit. These particles may accumulate from normal treadmill use.
