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 at least 2 meters 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.When choosing a location for the treadmill,

make sure that the location and position permit access to a plug.

5.Keep the treadmill indoors, away from moisture and dust. Do not put the treadmill in a garage or covered patio, or near water.

6.Do not operate the treadmill where aerosol products are used or where oxygen is being administered.

7.Keep children under the age of 12 and pets away from the treadmill at all times.

8.The treadmill should not be used by persons weighing more than 250 pounds (114 kgs).

9.Never allow more than one person on the

treadmill at a time.

10. 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.


11.When connecting the power cord (see HOW

TO PLUG IN THE POWER CORD on page 8), plug the power cord into a surge protector (not included) and plug the surge protector

into a grounded circuit capable of carrying 15 or more amps. No other appliance should be

on the same circuit.

12.Use only a CUL-listed surge protector, rated

at 15 amps, with a 14-gauge cord of five feet or less in length. Do not use an extension cord.

13.Keep the power cord and the surge protector away from heated surfaces.

14.Never move the walking belt whilst 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.)

15.Never start the treadmill whilst you are standing on the walking belt. Always hold the handrails whilst 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 whilst 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.)

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 22.) You must be able to safely lift 20 kg in order to raise, lower, or move the treadmill.

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


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

22.When using 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.

23.When using 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.

24.Always remove CD’s and videos

from your CD player or VCR when you are not using them.

25.Inspect and tighten all parts of the treadmill regularly.

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

27.DANGER: Always unplug the power cord immediately after use, before cleaning

the treadmill, and before performing the maintenance and adjustment procedures de-

scribed 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.

28.This treadmill is intended for in-home use only. Do not use this 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. ICON assumes no responsibility for personal injury or property damage sustained by or through the use of this product.

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.

The advanced 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 provide continuous exercise feedback. You can even measure your heart rate using the built-in pulse sensor.

Three preset workout programs are also offered. Each program automatically controls the speed and incline

of the treadmill to give you an effective workout. You can even create your own custom workout programs

and store them in memory for future use.

The console also features new interactive technology. technology is like having a personal trainer right in your home. Using the included audio cable, you can connect the treadmill to your

settes are available separately). Video programs offer the same benefits as CD programs, but add
