CONDITIONING GUIDELINES

ALWAYS CONSULT YOUR PHYSICIAN BEFORE BEGINNING AN EXERCISE PROGRAM.

HOW OFTEN? (Frequency of Workouts)

he 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)

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)

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! here 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

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.

TARGET HEART RATE ZONE CHART

What is Target Heart Rate Zone?

arget Heart Rate Zone tells you the number of times per minute 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. arget Zone will vary for each individual, depending on age, current level of conditioning, and personal fitness goals. The

American Heart Association recommends working-outat a arget 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 the70-75%range. See chart for reference.

STRETCHING

STRETCH FIRST

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.

. STANDING CALVE MUSCLE STRETCH

Stand near a wall with the toes of tour 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.

2. STANDING QUADRICEPS STRETCH

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

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 count of 15 seconds. Make sure that you do not bounce while stretching. Sit upright again. Repeat one time.

TIPS

THE IMPORTANCE OF WARM UP & COOL DOWN

WARM UP

he first 2 to 5 minutes of a workout should be devoted to warming up. The warm-upwill limber your muscles and prepare them for more strenuous exercise. Make sure that youwarm-upon your product at a slow pace. The warm up should gradually bring your heart rate into your Target Heart Rate Zone.

COOL DOWN

Never stop exercising suddenly! A cool-downperiod of3-5minutes 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 thecool-down,repeat the stretching exercises listed above to loosen and relax your muscles.

TIPS

ACHIEVING YOUR FITNESS GOALS

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:

Weight Loss - lower intensity, longer duration workouts

Improve Body Shape and Tone - interval workouts, alternate between hi and low intensities

Increased Energy Level - more frequent daily workouts

Improved Sports Performance - high intensity workouts

Improved Cardiovascular Endurance - moderate intensity, longer duration workouts

If possible try to define your personal goals in precise, measurable terms, and then put your goals in writing. he 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.

KEEPING AN EXERCISE DAIRY

o 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:

www.horizonfitness.com/guides/weeklylog.pdf www.horizonfitness.com/guides/monthlylog.pdf

As your fitness improves, you can look back and see how far you’ve come!

TROUBLESHOOTING

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?

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 loor. 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.

TROUBLESHOOTING - TREADMILL

our treadmill is designed to be reliable and easy to use. However, if you experience a problem, please reference the roubleshooting guide listed below.

PROBLEM: he banding straps were removed before ASSEMBLY STEPwas complete and the machine has sprung open and cannot be assembled.

SOLUTION: he air shocks have been engaged prematurely. To correct this, tilt the machine on it’s nose by lifting the deck (light end) upwards. Step on the foot latch and fold down the deck so that it is horizontal. You may now proceed with ASSEMBLY STEP 1

PROBLEM:

SOLUTION: erify the following:

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 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 no wires 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-ampcircuit, it is not on a GFCI equipped outlet, and it is not plugged into a 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.

Verify that the belt is properly tightened and centered (Refer to the Adjustment section for detailed directions).

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.

ou 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.

If the above troubleshooting section does not remedy the problem, discontinue use and turn the power off.

PLEASE CALL CUSTOMER TECH SUPPORT AT THE NUMBER ON THE BACK PANEL.

he following information may be asked of you when you call. Please have these items readily available:

Model Name

Serial Number

Date of Purchase (receipt or credit card statement)

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?

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 Horizon Fitness treadmill running again!

MAINTENANCE

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.

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 Horizon Fitness.

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.

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.

Fold the treadmill into the upright position, making sure that the lock latch is secure.

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.

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.

Remove the motor cover. Wait until ALL LED lights turn off.

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.

EVERY 6 MONTHS

It may be necessary to lubricate your treadmill running deck every six months to maintain optimal performance of your treadmill. Only use lubricant provided by Horizon Fitness! Please contact Horizon

Fitness with questions about applying lubricant to your treadmill.

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 rame 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.
