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.

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 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 135 kg (300 lbs.).

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

9.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.

10.When connecting the power cord (see page 10), plug the power cord into an earthed circuit. No other appliance should be on the same circuit. When replacing the fuse, an ASTA approved BS1362 type should be fitted to the fuse carrier. A 13 amp fuse should be used.

11.If an extension cord is needed, use only a 3- conductor, 1mm2 (14-gauge) cord that is no longer than 1.5 m (5 ft.).

12.Keep the power cord 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 TROUBLESHOOTING on page 26 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 pulse sensors are not medical devices. Various factors, including the user's movement, may affect the accuracy of heart rate readings. The pulse sensors are intended only as an exercise aid in determining heart rate trends in general.

17.Never leave the treadmill unattended while it is running. Always remove the key, unplug the power cord, and switch 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.)

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

19.Do not change the incline of the treadmill by placing objects under the treadmill.

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

3

21.When using iFIT.com programs, 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 iFIT.com programs, you can manually override the speed and incline settings 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 program.

23.Always remove iFIT.com CDs and videos from your CD player or VCR and disconnect your MP3 player when you are not using them.

24.Inspect and properly tighten all parts of the treadmill regularly.

25.Never insert or drop 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. Never remove the motor hood unless instructed to do so by an authorised service representative. Servicing other than the procedures in this manual should be performed by an authorised service representative only.

27.The treadmill is intended for in-home use only. Do not use the treadmill in any commercial, rental, or institutional setting.

WARNING: Before beginning this or any exercise program, consult your physician. This is especially important for persons over the age of 35 or persons with pre-existing health problems. Read all instructions before using. Newlife assumes no responsibility for personal injury or property damage sustained by or through the use of this product.

HOW TO USE THE CHEST PULSE SENSOR

HOW TO PUT ON THE CHEST PULSE SENSOR

The chest pulse sensor 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 into the hole in one end of the sensor unit, as shown in the inset drawing. Press the end of the sensor unit under the buckle on the chest strap. The tab should be flush with the front of the sensor unit.

Next, wrap the chest

pulse sensor around your chest and attach the other end of the chest strap to the

sensor unit. Adjust the length of the chest strap, if neces-

sary. The chest pulse

sensor should be under your clothes, 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.

Next, 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 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.

CHEST PULSE SENSOR CARE AND MAINTENANCE

Thoroughly dry the chest pulse sensor after each use. The chest pulse sensor is activated when the electrode areas are wetted and the heart rate monitor is put on; the chest pulse sensor shuts off when it is removed and the electrode areas are dried. If the chest pulse sensor is not dried after each use, it may remain activated longer than necessary, draining the battery prematurely.

Store the chest pulse sensor in a warm, dry place. Do not store the chest pulse sensor in a plastic bag or other container that may trap moisture.

Do not expose the chest pulse sensor to direct sunlight for extended periods of time; do not expose it to temperatures above 50° C (120° F) or below -10° C (15° F).

Do not excessively bend or stretch the sensor unit when using or storing the chest pulse sensor.

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

CHEST PULSE SENSOR TROUBLESHOOTING

The instructions on the following pages explain how the chest pulse sensor is used with the console. If the chest pulse sensor does not function properly, try the steps below.

Make sure that you are wearing the chest pulse sensor as described at the left. Note: If the chest pulse sensor does not function when positioned as described, move it slightly lower or higher 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, rewet the electrode areas.

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

The chest pulse sensor 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 chest pulse sensor 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 28).

OPERATION AND ADJUSTMENT

THE PRE-LUBRICATED WALKING BELT

Your treadmill features a walking belt coated with 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

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 equipped with a power cord having an equipment-earthing conductor and an earthing plug. Important: If the power cord is damaged, it must be replaced with a manufacturer-recommended power cord.

See drawing 1. Plug the indicated end of the power cord into the socket on the treadmill.

See drawing 2. Plug the power cord into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed and earthed in accordance with all local codes and ordinances. Important: The treadmill is not compatible with

GFCI-equipped outlets.

FEATURES OF THE CONSOLE

The treadmill console offers an impressive array of features designed to help you get the most from your workouts. 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 continuous exercise feedback. You can even measure your heart rate using the handgrip pulse sensor or the chest pulse sensor.

In addition, the console features eight preset programs. Each program automatically controls the speed and incline of the treadmill as it guides you through an effective workout. The console also offers two heart rate programs that control the speed and incline of the treadmill to keep your heart rate near a target heart rate during your workouts.

The console also features iFIT.com interactive technology. Having iFIT.com technology is like having a personal trainer in your home. Using a stereo audio cable, you can connect the treadmill to your portable stereo, home stereo, computer, or VCR and play special

iFIT.com MP3, CD, and video programs (iFIT.com MP3 programs, CDs, and videocassettes are available separately). iFIT.com programs automatically control the speed and incline of the treadmill as a personal trainer guides you through every step of your workout; highenergy music provides added motivation. To download iFIT.com MP3 programs, go to www.iFIT.com. To purchase iFIT.com CDs or videocassettes, call the telephone number on the front cover of this manual.

With the treadmill connected to your computer, you can also go to www.iFIT.com and access iFIT.com programs directly from our Web site. See www.iFIT.com for more information.
