IMPORTANT PRECAUTIONS

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 eight feet of clearance behind it. 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 300 pounds.

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

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 7), 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 dissi-

pation 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.Using the included hand weights and not holding the handrails may compromise your ability to maintain your balance. Exercises using hand weights should be attempted only by experienced users.

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.

3

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 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.

22.When folding or moving the treadmill, make sure that the pin on the lock knob is inside of the catch (see page 21).

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

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

25.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. 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.

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

ASSEMBLY

Assembly requires two people. Set the treadmill in a cleared area and remove all packing materials. Do not dispose of the packing materials until assembly is completed. No tools are required for assembly.

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. With the help of a second person, carefully raise the

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 toll-free 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 exercise.

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 the number 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 the included hand weights for upper-body exercise.

The console even allows you to create custom workout 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 different 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 internet site at www.iFIT.com and access basic programs, audio programs, and video programs directly from the internet. And by adding an optional upgrade module to the console, you can use virtually endless features from our internet site. See www.iFIT.com for complete details.

To purchase iFIT.com CD’s, iFIT.com videocassettes, or an optional upgrade module, call toll-free 1-800- 735-0768.

To use the manual mode of the console, follow the steps beginning on page 10. To use a performance program or a total-body workout program, see page 12. To create a custom program, see page 13. To use a custom program, see page 14.

To use iFIT.com CD or video programs, refer to page 18. To use iFIT.com programs directly from our internet site, see page 19.

HOW TO ADJUST THE FIRMNESS OF THE CUSHIONING SYSTEM

The treadmill features a cushioning system that reduces the impact as you

walk or run on the treadmill.

The firmness of the cushioning system is con-

trolled with the knob on the right side of the treadmill. To increase the firmness, turn the knob clockwise; to decrease the firmness, turn the knob counterclockwise. Note: The faster you run on the treadmill, or the heavier your weight, the firmer the cushioning system should be. If the cushioning system is too soft, you will hear the walking platform hitting the platform bumpers as you run.
