WARNING: To reduce the risk of burns, fire, electric shock, or injury to persons, read the following important precautions and information before operating the treadmill.

1.It is the responsibility of the owner to ensure that all users of this treadmill are adequately informed of all warnings and precautions.

2.Use the treadmill only as described in this manual.

3.Place the treadmill on a level surface, with at least eight feet of clearance behind it and two feet on each side. Do not place the treadmill on any surface that blocks air openings. To protect the floor or carpet from damage, place a mat under the treadmill.

4.Keep the treadmill indoors, away from moisture and dust. Do not put the treadmill in a garage or covered patio, or near water.

5.Do not operate the treadmill where aerosol products are used or where oxygen is being administered.

6.Keep children under the age of 12 and pets away from the treadmill at all times.

7.The treadmill should not be used by persons weighing more than 250 pounds.

8.Never allow more than one person on the treadmill at a time.

9.Wear appropriate exercise clothes when using the treadmill. Do not wear loose clothes that could become caught in the treadmill. Athletic support clothes are recommended for both men and women. Always wear athletic shoes. Never use the treadmill with bare feet, wearing only stockings, or in sandals.

10.When connecting the power cord (see page 8), plug the power cord into a surge suppressor (not included) and plug the surge suppressor into a grounded circuit capable of carrying 15 or more amps. No other appliance should be on the same circuit. Do not use an extension cord.

11.Use only a single-outlet surge suppressor that meets all of the specifications described on page 8. To purchase a surge suppressor, see your local IMAGE dealer or call 1-800-806-3651 and order part number 146148.

12.Failure to use a properly functioning surge suppressor could result in damage to the control system of the treadmill. If the control system is damaged, the walking belt may change speed or stop unexpectedly, which may result in a fall and serious injury.

13.Keep the power cord and the surge suppressor away from heated surfaces.

14.Never move the walking belt while the power is turned off. Do not operate the treadmill if the power cord or plug is damaged, or if the treadmill is not working properly. (See BEFORE YOU BEGIN on page 5 if the treadmill is not working properly.)

15.Never start the treadmill while you are standing on the walking belt. Always hold the handrails while using the treadmill.

16.The treadmill is capable of high speeds. Adjust the speed in small increments to avoid sudden jumps in speed.

17.The pulse sensor is not a medical device. Various factors, including the user's movement, may affect the accuracy of heart rate readings. The pulse sensor is intended only as an exercise aid in determining heart rate trends in general.

18.Never leave the treadmill unattended while it is running. Always remove the key, unplug the power cord from the front of the treadmill and move the on/off switch to the off position when the treadmill is not in use. (See the drawing on page 5 to locate the on/off switch.)

19.Do not attempt to raise, lower, or move the treadmill until it is properly assembled. (See ASSEMBLY on page 6, and HOW TO FOLD AND MOVE THE TREADMILL on page 21.) You must be able to safely lift 45 pounds (20 kg) in order to raise, lower, or move the treadmill.

20.Do not change the incline of the treadmill by placing objects under the treadmill.

21.When folding or moving the treadmill, make sure that the storage latch and the console latch are fully closed.


22.When using CDs and videos, an electronic “chirping” sound will alert you when the speed and/or incline of the treadmill is about to change. Always listen for the “chirp” and be prepared for speed and/or incline changes. In some instances, the speed and/or incline may change before the personal trainer describes the change.

23.When using CDs and videos, you can manually override the speed and incline settings at any time by pressing the speed and incline buttons. However, when the next “chirp” is heard, the speed and/or incline will change to the next settings of the CD or video program.

24.Always remove CDs and videos from your CD player or VCR when you are not using them.

25.Inspect and properly tighten all parts of the treadmill regularly.

26.Never insert or drop any object into any opening.

27.DANGER: Always unplug the power cord from the front of the treadmill immediately after use, before cleaning the treadmill, and before performing the maintenance and adjustment procedures described in this manual. Never remove the motor hood unless instructed to do so by an authorized service representative. Servicing other than the procedures in this manual should be performed by an authorized service representative only.

28.This treadmill is intended for in-home use only. Do not use this treadmill in any commercial, rental, or institutional setting.

Assembly requires two persons. Set the treadmill in a cleared area. Do not remove the cardboard from the area shown in drawing 2 below. Remove all other packing materials. Do not dispose of any packing materials until assembly is completed. Treadmill assembly requires the included allen wrench and your own phillips screwdriver and 9/16” wrench .

Note: The underside of the treadmill walking belt is coated with high-performance lubricant. During shipping, a small amount of lubricant may be transferred to the top of the walking belt or the shipping carton. This is a normal condition and does not affect treadmill performance. If there is lubricant on top of the walking belt, simply wipe off the lubricant with a soft cloth and a mild, non-abrasive cleaner.

1.While a second person holds one end of the treadmill, carefully tip the treadmill onto its side as shown. Using the included allen wrench and a 9/16” wrench, attach the two Extension Legs (70) to the base of the Uprights (109) with the four Bolts (71) and Nuts (74). Make sure that the Extension Legs are turned so the Base Pads (66) are in the positions shown.

With the help of a second person, carefully raise the treadmill to the vertical position, and then lower the Walking Platform (93) to the floor. Note: If the treadmill rocks slightly, tip the treadmill back onto its side, loosen the four Nuts (74), adjust the positions of the Extension Legs (70), and then retighten the Nuts. Raise the treadmill back to the vertical position. Repeat until the rocking motion is eliminated.

2.Attach the Storage Latch Assembly (33) and the Latch Spacer (35) to the left Upright (109) with the two 3/4” Screws (67) as shown. Be careful not to overtighten the Screws.

Thread the Console Latch (55) into the right Upright (109).

3.Pull the Console Latch (55) to the right, and rotate the Console Base (43) to the position shown. Release the Console Latch, making sure that the Console Base is locked in place. Note: It may be helpful to push down on the right Handrail (39) and push the Console Latch into the locked position.

Note: If the Handrail (39) rocks, attach one or two pieces of the included felt onto the bracket in the locations shown in drawing 2.























































































4a. Make sure that the treadmill is less than six feet away from the cabinet.

Note: There are two ways to connect the treadmill to an outlet. First, the cabinet has a power cord that can be plugged into the treadmill and another power cord that can be plugged into an outlet using a surge suppressor. Second, the treadmill power cord can be plugged into the treadmill and into an outlet using a surge suppressor. To connect the treadmill using the cabinet power cord, follow the instructions in this step. To connect the treadmill using the treadmill power cord, see step 4b.

Important: All references to power cords in other sections of this manual apply to both the cabinet power cord and the treadmill power cord.

Feed the cabinet power cord and the cabinet audio wire through the looped Plastic Tie (76) at the front of the treadmill. Plug the power cord and the audio wire into the treadmill as shown. Tighten the Plastic Tie. (The Plastic Tie can also be released if needed.)

4b. Plug the Treadmill Power Cord (123) into the front of the treadmill as shown.

5.Locate the indicated wire on the back of the cabinet. Plug the wire into the connection panel.

If you plan to use one or both of the power cords on the back of the cabinet, plug the power cords into appropriate outlets using surge suppressors as described on page 8.

6.Make sure that all parts are properly tightened before you use the treadmill. Note: If there is a thin sheet of clear plastic on the console decal, remove it. Keep the included allen wrench in a secure place. The allen wrench is used to adjust the walking belt (see page 24). To protect the floor or carpet from damage, place a mat under the treadmill.






















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.


DANGER: Improper connection of the equipment-grounding conductor can result in an increased risk of electric shock. Check with a qualified electrician or serviceman if you are in doubt as to whether the product is properly grounded. Do not modify the plug provided with the product—if it will not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.

Your treadmill, like any other type of sophisticated electronic equipment, can be seriously damaged by sudden voltage changes in your home’s 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). To purchase a surge suppressor, see your local IMAGE dealer or call 1-800-806-3651 and order part number 146148.

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. There must be a monitoring light on the surge suppressor to indicate whether it is functioning properly. Failure to use a properly functioning surge suppressor could result in damage to the control system of the treadmill. If the control system is damaged, the walking belt may change speed or stop unexpectedly, which may result in a fall and serious injury.

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. Important: The treadmill is not compatible with GFCI-equipped outlets.

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.

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.

If there is a thin sheet of clear plastic



on the face of the console, remove it.



CAUTION: Before operating the console, read the following precautions.

Do not stand on the walking belt when turning on the power.

Always wear the clip (see the drawing above) while operating the treadmill.

Adjust the speed in small increments to avoid sudden jumps in speed.

To reduce the possibility of electric shock, keep the console dry. Avoid spilling liquids on the console and place only a sealed water bottle in the water bottle holder.


The advanced console offers an impressive array of features to help you get the most from your exercise. When the manual mode of the console is selected, the speed and incline of the treadmill can be changed with a touch of a button. As you exercise, the console will display continuous exercise feedback. You can even measure your heart rate using the handgrip pulse sensor or the optional chest pulse sensor (see page 20).

Nine certified personal trainer programs are also offered. Each program automatically controls the speed and incline of the treadmill to give you an effective jogging or running workout. Two heart rate programs are also featured. Each program controls the speed and incline of the treadmill to keep your heart rate near a target level during your workouts. Note: The heart rate programs require the use of the optional chest pulse sensor.

The console also features new interactive technology. Having technology is like having a personal trainer in your home. Using the included audio cable, you can connect the treadmill to your home stereo, portable stereo, computer, or VCR and play special CD and video programs ( CDs and videocassettes are available separately). CD and video programs automatically control the speed and incline of the treadmill as a personal trainer coaches you through every step of your workout. High-energy music provides added motivation. To purchase CDs or videocassettes, call tollfree 1-800-735-0768.

With the treadmill connected to your computer, you can also go to our Web site at and access programs directly from the internet. Additional options are soon to be available. See for more information.
