HOW TO SET UP THE INCLINE TRAINER

Assembly requires two persons. Set the INCLINE TRAINER in a cleared area and remove all packing materials. Do not dispose of the packing materials until assembly is completed. Assembly can be completed using the included allen wrenches.

Note: The underside of the INCLINE TRAINER 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 INCLINE TRAINER performance. If there is lubricant on top of the walk-

ing belt, simply wipe off the lubricant with a soft cloth and a mild, non-abrasive cleaner.

HOW TO CONNECT THE INCLINE TRAINER

HOW TO CONNECT THE POWER CORD

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. Note: These instructions describe how the power cord should be connected in the UK, Germany, Italy, Spain, or France. To connect the power cord in other countries, refer to the instruction sheet accompanying this manual.

DANGER: Improper connection the 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.

the cord with the included allen wrench and the two

bracket screws.

 

 

Next, plug the grounding plug into a receptacle as shown in drawing 2 at the right. Do not modify the plug or the receptacle. Do not use an adapter, a surge protector, or an extension cord.

HOW TO CONNECT A CATV CABLE

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

Locate the cable jack on the front of

the INCLINE

TRAINER. Connect the CATV cable to the cable jack using the PAL adapter. Route the cable so that it will not be pinched or

crushed by the wheels when the incline is changed.

A satellite receiver, VCR, or DVD player can also be connected to the INCLINE TRAINER. 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 INCLINE TRAINER.

Note: Audio/video equipment without coaxial outputs (some satellite receivers and DVD players) requires a RF modulator to work correctly with the INCLINE TRAINER. 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.
