ABOUT HOME EXERCISE

Your Vision Fitness Treadmill is the ideal choice to help you maintain year round fitness. You can use your Vision Fitness Treadmill as the core of your exercise program, or as a supplement to other fitness activities. Many people will ride their bikes, hike, or swim in the more pleasant months, only to lose their improved fitness with the arrival of inclement weather. By placing a Vision Fitness Treadmill in the convenience of your home, you can keep your exercise program going despite bad weather, early nightfalls, or an ever increasingly busy schedule.

Below are some of the advantages of having a Vision Fitness Treadmill in your home:

Exercise is not weather dependent.

Saves you time by eliminating the drive time you would have to and from a health club.

You can exercise before or after work when it might be dark.

You can do multiple activities such as watching TV, or listening to your favorite music.

It’s easier to control exercise intensity.

It’s a safe and comfortable environment.

You can stay in shape while spending time with your children and family.

You can avoid pollen during peak allergy times.

CAUTION! BEFORE BEGINNING

ANY EXERCISE PROGRAM, ALWAYS

CONSULT YOUR PHYSICIAN. IF YOU

EXPERIENCE CHEST PAINS, NAUSEA,

DIZZINESS OR SHORTNESS OF

BREATH, STOP EXERCISING AND

CONSULT YOUR PHYSICIAN BEFORE

CONTINUING.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS

When using an electrical product, basic precautions should always be followed, including the following: Read all instructions before using this Vision Fitness Treadmill.

WARNING!

Connect this appliance to a properly grounded outlet only. See grounding Instructions.

GROUNDING INSTRUCTIONS

This product must be grounded. If it should malfunction or breakdown, grounding provides a path of least resistance for electrical current to reduce the risk of electrical shock. This product is equipped with a cord having an equipment-grounding conductor and a grounding plug. The plug must be plugged into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with local codes and ordinances.

DANGER! Improper connection of the equipment-grounding conductor can result in a 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 fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.

This product is for use on a nominal 120-volt circuit, and has a grounding plug that looks like the plug illustrated in sketch A below, Page 5. A temporary adapter that looks like the adapter is illustrated below may be used to connect this plug to a 2-pole receptacle as shown, if a properly grounded outlet is not available. The temporary adapter should be used only until a properly grounded outlet 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.

PLACEMENT IN YOUR HOME

It is important that you place your Vision Fitness Treadmill in a comfortable and inviting room. Your Vision Fitness Treadmill is designed to use minimal floor space and go nicely in your family room, den, or bedroom. Many people will place their treadmills facing the TV or a picture window. If at all possible, avoid putting your Treadmill in an unfinished basement. To make exercise a desirable daily activity for you, the treadmill should be in an attractive setting.

Occasionally after long term use you will find a fine black dust below your Vision Fitness Treadmill. This is normal wear, mostly from your sneakers and DOES NOT mean there is anything wrong with your treadmill. This dust can be easily removed with a vacuum cleaner. If you wish to prevent this dust from getting on your floor or carpet, place a rubber or vinyl mat beneath your treadmill.

LEVELING THE BASE

If your Vision Fitness Treadmill wobbles when you have placed it where you intend to use it, raise or lower one or both of the adjustable levelers located on the bottom of the base. Once you have leveled the Fitness Treadmill, lock the levelers in place by tightening the winged lock nuts against the base frame.

POWER CORD AND SWITCH

Plug the power cord into the plug receptacle located at the front of the treadmill deck. Plug the cord into a grounded 115V wall socket and turn the power switch on.

USE DEDICATED CIRCUIT

The outlet selected should be a dedicated circuit. It is particularly important that no sensitive electrical equipment, such as computer or TVs, share the same circuit.
