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 at least eight feet of clearance behind it and two feet 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 oxygen is 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 250 pounds. Never allow more than one person on the treadmill at a time.

8.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.

9.When connecting the power cord (see page 10), 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. Do not use an extension cord.

10.Use only a single-outlet surge suppressor that meets all of the specifications described on page 9. To purchase a surge suppressor, see your local PROFORM dealer or call 1-800-806- 3651 and order part number 146148.

11.Failure to use a properly functioning surge suppressor could result in damage to the control system of the treadmill. If the control system is damaged, the walking belt may change speed or stop unexpectedly, which may result in a fall and serious injury.

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.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.

17.Never leave the treadmill unattended while it is running. Always remove the key, unplug the power cord, and move the reset/off circuit breaker to the off position when the treadmill is not in use. (See the drawing on page 5 for the location of the circuit breaker.)

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 45 pounds (20 kg) to raise, lower, or move the treadmill.

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

3

20.When using iFIT.com CDs 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.

21.When using iFIT.com CDs 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.

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

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

TREADMILL OPERATION

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 PROFORM dealer or call 1-800-806-3651 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. There must be a monitoring light on the surge suppressor to indicate whether it is functioning properly. Failure to use a properly functioning surge suppressor could result in damage to the control system of the treadmill. If the control system is damaged, the walking belt may change speed or stop unexpectedly, which may result in a fall and serious injury.

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 that 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 instant exercise feedback. You can even measure your heart rate using the handgrip pulse sensor or the optional chest pulse sensor (see page 23).

In addition, the console offers four preset programs. Each program automatically controls the speed and incline of the treadmill as it guides you through an effective workout. Two heart rate programs are also offered. Each program automatically adjusts the speed and incline of the treadmill to keep your heart rate near a target heart rate while you exercise.

The console also features iFIT.com interactive technology. Having iFIT.com technology is like having a personal trainer in your home. Using the included audio

cable, you can connect the treadmill to your home stereo, portable stereo, computer, or VCR and play special iFIT.com CD and video programs (iFIT.com CDs and videocassettes are available separately). iFIT.com CD and video 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. To purchase iFIT.com CDs or videocassettes, call tollfree 1-800-735-0768.

With the treadmill connected to your computer, you can also go to our Web site at www.iFIT.com and access programs directly from the internet. Additional options are soon to be available. See www.iFIT.com for more information.

To use the manual mode of the console, follow the steps beginning on page 12. To use a preset program, see page 14. To use a heart rate program, see page 16. To use an iFIT.com CD or video program, see page 20. To use iFIT.com programs directly from our Web site, see page 22.

When only three seconds remain in the first segment of the program, both the Current Segment column and the column to the right will flash and a series of tones will sound. If the speed and/or incline of the treadmill is about to change, the Speed display and/or the Distance/Incline display will flash to alert you. When the first segment ends, all speed settings will move one column to the left. The speed setting for the second segment will then be shown in the flashing Current Segment column and the treadmill will automatically adjust to the speed and incline settings for the second segment. Note: If all of the indicators in the Current Segment column are lit after the speed settings have moved to the left, the speed settings may move downward so that only the highest indicators appear in the matrix. If some of the indicators in the Current Segment column are not lit when the speed settings move to the left again, the speed settings will move back up.

The program will continue in this way until the speed setting for the last segment is shown in the Current Segment column and the last segment ends. The walking belt will then slow to a stop.

If the speed or incline setting is too high or too low at any time during the program, you can manually override the setting by pressing the Speed or Incline buttons. Every few times a Speed button is pressed, an additional indicator will light or darken in the Current Segment column. (If any of the columns to the right of the Current Segment column have the same number of lit indicators as the Current Segment column, an additional indicator may light or darken in those columns as well.)

Note: When the next segment of the program begins, the treadmill will automatically adjust to the speed and incline settings for the next segment.

HOW TO USE HEART RATE PROGRAMS

CAUTION: If you have heart problems, or if you are over 60 years of age and have been inactive, do not use the heart rate programs. If you are taking medication regularly, consult your physician to find whether the medication will affect your exercise heart rate.

1 Put on the optional chest pulse sensor.

You must wear the optional chest pulse sensor (see page 23) to use a heart rate program. See the instructions included with the chest pulse sensor.

2 Insert the key fully into the console.

See HOW TO TURN ON THE POWER on page 12.

3 Select a heart rate program.

When the key is inserted, the manual

mode will be selected. To select a heart rate

program, press the Program Select button

repeatedly until one of the two heart rate program indicators lights.

The diagrams beside the heart rate program indicators show how the target heart rate will change during the programs. During the 85% Max program, your heart rate will reach approximately 85% of your estimated maximum heart rate; during the Self Select program, your heart rate will remain near a level that you select. Note: Your estimated maximum heart rate is determined by subtracting your age from 220. For example, if you are 30 years old, your estimated maximum heart rate is 190 beats per minute (220 – 30 = 190).

4

5

6

During heart rate programs, the matrix will show a moving graphic that represents your heart rate. Each time a heartbeat is detected, an additional peak will appear.

Enter your age.

When a heart rate pro-

gram is selected, the word “AGE” and the current age setting will flash in the Calories/Pulse

display. If you have al-

ready entered your age, simply press the Enter button. If you have not entered your age, press the increase and decrease buttons beside the Enter button to enter your age. Then, press the Enter button.

Enter a maximum speed.

After you have entered

your age, the letters “SPd” and the maximum speed setting of the pro-

gram will flash in the Speed display. If de-

sired, press the increase and decrease buttons beside the Enter button to adjust the maximum speed setting. When the desired setting is shown, press the Enter button.

If the 85% Max program is selected, go to step 7. If the Self Select program is selected, go to step 6.

Enter a target heart rate.

The letters “PLS” and

the target heart rate setting for the program will flash in the Calories/ Pulse display. If desired,

press the increase and

decrease buttons beside the Enter button to adjust the target heart rate setting. When the desired setting is shown, press the Enter button.

16

7 Press the Start button or the Speed increase button to start the program.

A moment after the button is pressed, the treadmill will automatically adjust to the first speed and incline settings of the program. Hold the handrails and begin walking.

Each heart rate program is divided into several time segments of different lengths. One target heart rate is programmed for each segment. Note: If the Self Select program is selected, the same target heart rate is programmed for all segments.

During each segment, the console will regularly compare your heart rate to the current target heart rate. If your heart rate is too far below or above the target heart rate, the speed of the treadmill will automatically increase or decrease to bring your heart rate closer to the target heart rate. If the speed reaches the maximum speed setting of the program (see step 5 on page 16) and your heart rate is still too far below the current target heart rate, the incline of the treadmill will also increase to bring your heart rate closer to the target heart rate.

During the last three seconds of each segment, a series of tones will sound and the Speed display and the Distance/Incline display will flash.

The program will continue until the last segment ends. The walking belt will then slow to a stop.

If the speed or incline setting is too high or too low at any time during the program, you can adjust the setting with the Speed or Incline buttons. However, each time the console compares your heart rate to the current target heart rate, the speed and/or incline of the treadmill may automatically change to bring your heart rate closer to the target heart rate.

If your pulse is not detected during the program, the letters “PLS” will flash in the Calories/Pulse display and the speed and incline of the treadmill may automatically decrease until your pulse is detected. If this occurs, see the instructions included with the optional chest pulse sensor.

To stop the program at any time, press the Stop button. Heart rate programs cannot be stopped temporarily and then restarted. To use a heart rate program again, reselect the program and start it at the beginning.

8 Follow your progress with the displays.

See step 5 on page 12.

9 Turn on the fan if desired.

See step 7 on page 13.

10 When you are finished exercising, remove the key from the console.

See step 7 on page 15.

EXERCISE GUIDELINES

WARNING: Before beginning this or any exercise program, consult your physician. This is especially important for individuals over the age of 35 or individuals with preexisting health problems.

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.

The following guidelines will help you to plan your exercise program. For more detailed exercise information, obtain a reputable book or consult your physician.

EXERCISE INTENSITY

Whether your goal is to burn fat or to strengthen your cardiovascular system, the key to achieving the desired results is to exercise with the proper intensity. The proper intensity level can be found by using your heart rate as a guide. The chart below shows recommended heart rates for fat burning and aerobic exercise.

To find the proper heart rate for you, first find your age near the bottom of the chart (ages are rounded off to the nearest ten years). Next, find the three numbers above your age. The three numbers define your “training zone.” The lower two numbers are recommended heart rates for fat burning; the highest number is the recommended heart rate for aerobic exercise.

To measure your heart rate during exercise, use the handgrip pulse sensor.

Fat Burning

To burn fat effectively, you must exercise at a relatively low intensity level for a sustained period of time. During the first few minutes of exercise, your body uses easily accessible carbohydrate calories for en-

ergy. Only after the first few minutes does your body begin to use stored fat calories for energy. If your goal is to burn fat, adjust the speed or incline of the treadmill until your heart rate is near the lowest number in your training zone.

For maximum fat burning, adjust the speed or incline of the treadmill until your heart rate is near the middle number in your training zone.

Aerobic Exercise

If your goal is to strengthen your cardiovascular system, your exercise must be “aerobic.” Aerobic exercise is activity that requires large amounts of oxygen for prolonged periods of time. This increases the demand on the heart to pump blood to the muscles, and on the lungs to oxygenate the blood. For aerobic exercise, adjust the speed or incline of the treadmill until your heart rate is near the highest number in your training zone.

WORKOUT GUIDELINES

Each workout should include the following three parts:

A Warm-up—Start each workout with 5 to 10 minutes of stretching and light exercise. A proper warm-up increases your body temperature, heart rate and circulation in preparation for exercise.

Training Zone Exercise—After warming up, increase the intensity of your exercise until your pulse is in your training zone for 20 to 60 minutes. (During the first few weeks of your exercise program, do not keep your pulse in your training zone for longer than 20 minutes.) Breathe regularly and deeply as you exercise—never hold your breath.

A Cool-down—Finish each workout with 5 to 10 minutes of stretching to cool down. This will increase the flexibility of your muscles and will help prevent post-ex- ercise problems.

EXERCISE FREQUENCY

To maintain or improve your condition, complete three workouts each week, with at least one day of rest between workouts. After a few months, you may complete up to five workouts each week if desired. The key to success is to make exercise a regular and enjoyable part of your everyday life.

SUGGESTED STRETCHES

The correct form for several basic stretches is shown at the right. Move slowly as you stretch—never bounce.

1. Toe Touch Stretch

Stand with your knees bent slightly and slowly bend forward from your hips. Allow your back and shoulders to relax as you reach down toward your toes as far as possible. Hold for 15 counts, then relax. Repeat 3 times. Stretches: Hamstrings, back of knees and back.

2. Hamstring Stretch

Sit with one leg extended. Bring the sole of the opposite foot toward you and rest it against the inner thigh of your extended leg. Reach toward your toes as far as possible. Hold for 15 counts, then relax. Repeat 3 times for each leg. Stretches: Hamstrings, lower back and groin.

3. Calf/Achilles Stretch

With one leg in front of the other, reach forward and place your hands against a wall. Keep your back leg straight and your back foot flat on the floor. Bend your front leg, lean forward and move your hips toward the wall. Hold for 15 counts, then relax. Repeat 3 times for each leg. To cause further stretching of the achilles tendons, bend your back leg as well. Stretches: Calves, achilles tendons and ankles.

4. Quadriceps Stretch

With one hand against a wall for balance, reach back and grasp one foot with your other hand. Bring your heel as close to your buttocks as possible. Hold for 15 counts, then relax. Repeat 3 times for each leg. Stretches: Quadriceps and hip muscles.

5. Inner Thigh Stretch

Sit with the soles of your feet together and your knees outward. Pull your feet toward your groin area as far as possible. Hold for 15 counts, then relax. Repeat 3 times. Stretches: Quadriceps and hip muscles.
