7.The treadmill should not be used by persons weighing more than 350 pounds. Never allow more than one person on the treadmill at a time.

8.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.

9.When connecting the power cord (see page 9), 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.

10.Use only a single-outlet surge suppressor that meets all of the specifications described on page 9. To purchase a surge suppressor, see your local IMAGE dealer or call the toll-free telephone number on the front cover of this manual and order part number 146148, or see your local electronics store.

11.Failure to use a properly functioning surge suppressor could result in damage to the con-

trol system of the treadmill. If the control system is damaged, the walking belt may change speed, accelerate, or stop unexpectedly, which may result in a fall and serious injury.

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.Read, understand, and test the emergency stop procedure before using the treadmill (see TREADMILL OPERATION).

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, and move the reset/off circuit breaker to the off position when the treadmill is not in use. (See the drawing on page 5 for the location of the circuit breaker.)

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 26.) You must be able to safely lift 45 pounds (20 kg) to raise, lower, or move the treadmill.

20.When folding or moving the treadmill, make sure that the storage latch is fully closed.


21.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.

22.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.

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

24.Inspect and properly tighten all parts of the treadmill every three months.

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

26.DANGER: Always unplug the power cord immediately after use, before cleaning the treadmill, and before performing the maintenance and adjustment procedures described in this manual.

Your treadmill features a walking belt coated with highperformance 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 the toll-free telephone number on the front cover of this manual and order part number 146148, or see your local electronics store.

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, accelerate, 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 elec-

tric 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.


Note: If there is a thin sheet of clear


plastic on the console, remove it.



The treadmill console offers an impressive array of features designed to make your workouts more effective.

When the manual mode of the console is selected, the speed and incline of the treadmill can be changed with the touch of a button. As you exercise, the console will display instant exercise feedback. You can even measure your heart rate using the handgrip pulse sensor or the optional chest pulse sensor (see page 25).

In addition, the console offers ten preset programs. Each program automatically controls the speed and incline of the treadmill as it guides you through an effective workout. Two heart rate programs are also offered. Each program automatically adjusts the speed and incline of the treadmill to keep your heart rate within a target range while you exercise. The console even allows you to create your own programs and save them in memory for future use. Note: The heart rate programs require the use of the optional chest pulse sensor.

The console also features interactive technology. Having technology is like having a per-

sonal 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 guides you through every step of your workout. High-energy music provides added motivation. To purchase CDs or videocassettes, call the tollfree telephone number on the front cover of this manual.

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.

To use the manual mode of the console, follow the steps beginning on page 11. To use a preset program, see page 14. To create and use a custom program, see pages 16 and 17. To use an CD or video program, see page 22. To use an program directly from our Web site, see page 24.



Note: To prevent damage to the walking platform, always wear clean shoes when using the treadmill.

Plug in the power cord







(see page 9). Next, locate




the reset/off circuit breaker







on the treadmill frame near






the power cord. Make sure




that the circuit breaker is in




the reset position.




Stand on the foot rails of the treadmill. Find the clip attached to the key (see the drawing on page 10), and slide the clip onto the waistband of your clothes. Next, insert the key into the console. After a moment, the displays and various indicators will light. Important: In an emergency situation, the key can be pulled from the console, causing the walking belt to slow to a stop. Test the clip by carefully taking a few steps backward; if the key is not pulled from the console, adjust the position of the clip.

For example, if you plan to exercise for 30 minutes, press the increase and decrease buttons below the Time display until the display shows a goal of “30:00.”

If you also plan to run two miles during your

workout, press the increase and decrease buttons below the

Distance display until

the display shows a goal of “2.00.”

When you set either one goal or two goals, the console will display the length of time you will exercise, the distance that you will walk or run, the approximate number of calories you will burn, your pace, and a speed setting. If desired, adjust any of the values. Note that the last two values that you change will become your workout goals.

4 Press the Start button to start the walking belt.


1 Insert the key into the console.


2 Select the manual mode.

When the key is inserted, the manual mode will be selected and the Manual Control

indicator will light. If a program has been
