9.Wear appropriate exercise clothing when using the treadmill. Do not wear loose clothing 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.

11.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. To purchase a surge suppressor, see your local IMAGE dealer or call 1-800-999- 3756 and order part number 146148.

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

13.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.)

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

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

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

17.When using iFIT.com CD’s 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.

18.When using iFIT.com CD’s 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.

19.Always remove iFIT.com CD’s and videos from your CD player or VCR when you are not using them.

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

21.Do not attempt to raise, lower, or move the treadmill until it is properly assembled. (See ASSEMBLY on page 5, and HOW TO FOLD AND MOVE THE TREADMILL on page 24.) You must be able to safely lift 45 pounds (20 kg) in order to raise, lower, or move the treadmill.

HOW TO USE THE HEART RATE MONITOR

HOW TO PUT ON THE HEART RATE MONITOR

The heart rate monitor consists of two components: the chest strap and the sensor unit (see the drawing below). Insert the tab on one end of the chest strap through the hole in one end of the sensor unit. Press the end of the sensor unit under the buckle on the chest strap. The tab should be almost flush with the front of the sensor unit.

Buckle

Sensor Unit

Tab

Next, wrap the

heart rate monitor around your chest

and attach the other end of the chest strap to the sensor unit. Adjust

the length of the chest strap, if nec-

essary. The heart rate monitor should be under

your clothing, tight against your skin, and as high under the pectoral muscles or breasts as is comfortable. Make sure that the logo on the sensor unit is facing forward and is right-side-up.

Pull the sensor unit away from your body a few inches and locate the two electrode areas on the inner side. The electrode areas are the areas covered by shallow ridges. Using saline solution such as saliva or contact lens solution, wet both electrode areas. Return the sensor unit to a position against your chest.

HEART RATE MONITOR CARE AND MAINTENANCE

Thoroughly dry the heart rate monitor after each use. The heart rate monitor is activated when the electrode areas are wetted and the heart rate monitor is put on; the heart rate monitor shuts off when it is removed and the electrode areas are

dried. If the heart rate monitor is not dried after each use, it may remain activated longer than necessary, draining the battery prematurely.

Store the heart rate monitor in a warm, dry place. Do not store the heart rate monitor in a plastic bag or other container that may trap moisture.

Do not expose the heart rate monitor to direct sunlight for extended periods of time; do not expose it to temperatures above 122° Fahrenheit (50° Celsius) or below 14° Fahrenheit (-10° Celsius).

Do not excessively bend or stretch the sensor unit when using or storing the heart rate monitor.

Clean the sensor unit using a damp cloth—never use alcohol, abrasives, or chemicals. The chest strap may be hand washed and air dried.

HEART RATE MONITOR TROUBLE-SHOOTING

The instructions on the following pages explain how the heart rate monitor is used with the console. If the heart rate monitor does not function properly, try the steps below.

Make sure that you are wearing the heart rate monitor exactly as described at the left. Note: If the heart rate monitor does not function when positioned as described, try moving it slightly higher or lower on your chest.

Use saline solution such as saliva or contact lens solution to wet the two electrode areas on the sensor unit. If heart rate readings do not appear until you begin perspiring, re-wet the electrode areas.

As you walk or run on the treadmill, position yourself near the center of the walking belt. For the console to display heart rate readings, the user must be within arm’s length of the console.

The heart rate monitor is designed to work with people who have normal heart rhythms. Heart rate reading problems may be caused by medical conditions such as premature ventricular contractions (pvcs), tachycardia bursts, and arrhythmia.

The operation of the heart rate monitor can be affected by magnetic interference caused by high power lines or other sources. If it is suspected that this is a problem, try relocating the treadmill.

The CR2032 battery may need to be replaced (see page 27).

OPERATION AND ADJUSTMENT

THE PERFORMANT LUBETM WALKING BELT

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.

HOW TO PLUG IN THE POWER CORD

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 1-800-999-3756 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.

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.

FEATURES OF THE CONSOLE

The treadmill console offers an impressive array of features to help you get the most from your workouts.

When the console is in the manual mode, the speed and incline of the treadmill can be changed with a touch of a button. As you exercise, the console will display instant exercise feedback—you can watch your progress on the LED track while the four displays show your heart rate, the numbers of calories and fat calories you have burned, the distance you have walked, the incline level of the treadmill, the number of laps completed, your speed, your pace, and workout time.

The console also offers four performance programs and two total-body workout programs. Each program automatically controls the speed and incline of the treadmill as it guides you through an effective workout. The total-body workout programs also prompt you to use hand weights (not included) for upper-body exercise. (To purchase hand weights, refer to page 23.) 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.

The console even allows you to create user-defined programs and store them in memory for future use.

The console also includes built-in iFIT.com technology. iFIT.com technology is like having a personal trainer right in your home. Using the included audio cable, you can connect the treadmill to your home stereo, portable stereo, or computer and play special iFIT.com CD programs (CD’s are available separately). iFIT.com

CD programs automatically control the speed and incline of the treadmill as a personal trainer guides you through every step of your workout. High-energy music provides added motivation. Each CD features two programs designed by certified personal trainers.

In addition, you can connect the treadmill to your VCR and TV and play iFIT.com video programs (videocassettes are available separately). Video programs offer the same benefits as iFIT.com CD programs, but add the excitement of working out with a class and an in- structor—the hottest new trend at health clubs.

With the treadmill connected to your computer, you can also go to our new Web site at www.iFIT.com and access basic programs, audio programs, and video programs directly from the internet.
