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

3.Place the treadmill on a level surface, with at least 2.5 m (8 ft.) of clearance behind it and 0.5 m (2 ft.) on each side. Do not place the treadmill on a surface that blocks any 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 place 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.Do not operate the treadmill until it is properly and fully assembled (see ASSEMBLY on page 7).

HOW TO MOVE THE TREADMILL

Before moving the treadmill, unplug the power cord. Note: It may be necessary to disconnect a CATV cable and a network wire from the treadmill, depending on how far the treadmill will be moved.

Due to the size and weight of the treadmill, moving it requires two or three persons. Hold the metal frame firmly in the location shown at the right. CAUTION: To decrease the possibility of damage to the treadmill or of injury, do not lift the frame by the plastic front cover. Carefully roll the treadmill on the wheels to the desired location and then lower it back to the level position. CAUTION: To reduce the risk of injury, use extreme caution while moving the treadmill. Do not attempt to move the treadmill over uneven surfaces.

Note: If the included power cord is not long enough, see HOW TO CONTACT CUSTOMER CARE on page 2 of this manual and order a 3.6 m (12-foot) power cord.

HOW TO CONNECT THE TREADMILL

DANGER: Improper connection he equipment-grounding conductor can result in an increased risk of electric shock. Check with a qualified electrician or service-

man 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. Do not use an adapter to connect the plug to an improper receptacle.

HOW TO CONNECT THE POWER CORD IN THE UNITED STATES

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 for use on a dedicated, 20-amp, 120-volt circuit. No other appliance should be on the same circuit. This product is equipped with a cord having an equipment-grounding conductor and a grounding plug.

Plug the grounding plug into a standard NEMA 5-20 receptacle. Do not modify the plug or the receptacle. Do not use an adapter, a surge protector, or an extension cord. The receptacle must be grounded.

NEMA 5-20

Receptacle

HOW TO CONNECT THE POWER CORD IN THE UK This product must be earthed. If it should malfunction or break down, earthing provides a path of least resistance for electric current to reduce the risk of electric shock.

This product is for use on a dedicated, 10-amp, 240-volt circuit. No other appliance should be on the same circuit. The product is equipped with a cord having an equipment-earthing conductor and an earthing plug.

Plug the earthing plug into a receptacle as shown at the right. Do not modify the plug or the receptacle. Do not use an adapter or an extension cord. The recep-

tacle must be earthed.

HOW TO CONNECT A CATV CABLE

If your treadmill has the Workout TV console, a CATV cable must be connected to the treadmill for cable TV stations to be viewed.

Locate the cable jack on the front of the treadmill. Connect the CATV cable to the cable jack (in the UK use a PAL adapter [not included]). Route the cable so that it will not be pinched

or crushed by the lift mechanism or the frame.

A satellite receiver, VCR, or DVD player can also be connected to the treadmill. Connect a CATV cable from the coaxial output on your equipment (usually labeled TV OUT or RF OUT) to the cable jack on the front of the treadmill.

Note: Audio/video equipment without coaxial outputs (some satellite receivers and DVD players) will require an RF modulator to work correctly with the treadmill. RF modulators are not available from FreeMotion Fitness, but are available at electronics stores. See the owner's manual for the equipment you wish to connect to determine if an RF modulator is needed, or contact your local audio/visual service provider.

FEATURES OF THE CONSOLE

The Basic console offers an impressive array of features designed to help you get the greatest benefits from your exercise.

When the QUICK START mode is selected, the speed and incline of the treadmill can be changed with the touch of a button. As you exercise, the console will provide continuous exercise feedback. You can even measure your heart rate using the built-in pulse sensor.

In addition, the console offers a wide selection of workout programs. Each program automatically controls the speed and/or incline of the treadmill to give you an effective workout.

The console also offers three HEART RATE programs that adjust the speed and incline of the treadmill to

keep your heart rate near target levels during your workouts, and three unique FITNESS TEST programs that measure your relative fitness level. Note: The HEART RATE programs and the FITNESS TEST programs require the use of a Polar®-compatible chest pulse sensor (not included).

Before using the treadmill, please read OVERVIEW OF THE CONSOLE beginning on page 15. To use the QUICK START mode of the console, follow the steps beginning on page 17. To use a MANUAL program, see page 18. To use a FITNESS TEST program, see page 20. To use a HEART RATE program, see page 22. To use an INTERVAL program, see page 24. To use a WALK/RUN program, see page 26. To use a TERRAIN program, see page 27. To use the FIXED or RANDOM program, see page 28. To use a CUSTOM program, see page 29.
