ASSEMBLY

Assembly requires two people. Set the treadmill in a cleared area and remove all packing materials. Do not dispose of the packing materials until assembly is completed. Assembly requires the included allen wrench and your own flat-bladed screwdriver , wire cutters , and adjustable wrench .

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 treadmill 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 or foot pads, simply wipe off the lubricant with a soft cloth and a mild, non-abrasive cleaner.

CONDITIONING GUIDELINES

WARNING: Before beginning this or any exercise program, consult your physi- cian. This is especially important for individu- als over the age of 35 or individuals with pre- existing health problems.

The pulse sensors are not medical devices. Various factors, including the user???s move-

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 and incline of the tread- mill until your heart rate is near the lowest number in your training zone.

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

WARNING: Do not plug in the power cord until the treadmill is completely assembled.

1.Slide the treadmill out of the box. Insert the three Cage Nuts (96) into the three indicated holes in the treadmill.

To insert each Cage Nut (96), first hook one side of the Cage Nut into the hole and then use a flat-bladed screw- driver to press the other side into the hole, as shown.

2.With the help of a second person, carefully raise both Uprights (99) to a vertical position. Press the Latch Knob Sleeve (111) into the left Upright and hold the Latch Knob Spacer (112) against the left Upright.

Remove the Latch Knob (113) from the Latch Pin (107). Make sure that the Latch Pin Collar (109) and the Latch Pin Spring (110) are on the Latch Pin. (Note: If there are two Latch Pin Collars, place one on each side of the Spring.) Insert the Latch Pin into the Latch Knob Sleeve (111) and the Left Upright (99).

Tighten the Latch Knob (113) onto the Latch Pin (107).

3.With the help of a second person, raise the Walking Platform (24) to the storage position and make sure that the latch pin is engaged as described on page 26.

Position the Base Plate (91) on the treadmill as shown. Attach the Base Plate with the three Base Plate Screws (92). Note: It may be helpful if a second person tips the treadmill slightly as you tighten the Screws.

If the treadmill rocks slightly, turn one or both of the Leveling Feet (127) under the Uprights (99) until the rocking motion is eliminated. Carefully lower the Walking Platform (24) to the floor as described on page 27.

ment, may affect the accuracy of heart rate readings. The pulse sensors are intended only as exercise aids in determining heart rate trends in general.

The following guidelines will help you to plan your ex- ercise program. For more detailed exercise informa- tion, 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 recom- mended 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 ???train- ing zone.??? The lower two numbers are recommended heart rates for fat burning; the higher number is the recommended heart rate for aerobic exercise.

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

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-

Aerobic Exercise

If your goal is to strengthen your cardiovascular sys- tem, 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 and 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 in- creases your body temperature, heart rate and circula- tion 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 min- utes 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 be- tween workouts. After a few months, you may com- plete 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.

PROBLEM: The incline of the treadmill does not change correctly or does not change when iFIT.com CDs and videos are played

SOLUTION: a. With the key in the console, press one of the Incline buttons. Whilst the incline is changing, re- move the key. After a few seconds, re-insert the key. The treadmill will automatically rise to the maximum incline level and then return to the minimum level. This will recalibrate the incline system.

PROBLEM: The heart rate monitor does not function properly

SOLUTION: a. If the heart rate monitor does not function properly, see CHEST PULSE SENSOR TROUBLE- SHOOTING on page 8.

Remove the old battery from the sensor unit. Insert a new CR 2032 battery, making sure that the writing is on top. In addition, make sure that the rubber gasket is in place in the sensor unit. Replace the bat- tery cover and turn it to the closed position.

6.Make sure that all parts are properly tightened before you use the treadmill. Keep the included allen wrench in a secure place. The allen wrench is used to adjust the walking belt (see page 29). To protect the floor or carpet from damage, place a mat under the treadmill.

HOW TO USE THE CHEST PULSE SENSOR

PROBLEM: The walking belt slows when walked on

SOLUTION: a. 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.).

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 one end of the sensor unit, as shown in the inset draw- ing. 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.

each use, it may remain activated longer than nec- essary, draining the battery prematurely.

b.If the walking belt is overtightened, treadmill perfor- mance may decrease and the walking belt may be- come damaged. Remove the key and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. Using the allen wrench, turn both rear roller adjustment bolts counterclockwise, 1/4 of a turn. When the walking belt is properly tightened, you should be able to lift each side of the walking belt 8???10 cm (3???4 in.) off the walking platform. Be careful to keep the walking belt centred. Plug in the power cord, insert the key, and run the treadmill for a few minutes. Repeat until the walking belt is properly tightened.

c. If the walking belt still slows when walked on, call our Customer Service Department.

PROBLEM: The walking belt is off-centre or slips when walked on

Next, wrap the chest pulse sen-

sor around your chest and attach the other end of

the chest strap to the sensor unit.

Adjust the length of the chest strap, if necessary. The

chest pulse sensor should be under your clothes, tight against your skin, and as high under the pectoral mus- cles or breasts as is comfortable. Make sure that the

CHEST PULSE SENSOR TROUBLESHOOTING

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

SOLUTION: a. If the walking belt is off-centre, first remove the key and

UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. If the walking belt has shifted to the left, use the allen wrench to turn the left rear roller bolt clockwise 1/2 of a turn; if the walking belt has shifted to the right, turn the bolt counterclockwise 1/2 of a turn. Be careful not to overtighten the walking belt. Plug in the power cord, insert the key, and run the treadmill for a few minutes. Repeat until the walking belt is centred.

b.If the walking belt slips when walked on, first remove the key and UNPLUG THE POWER CORD. Using the allen wrench, turn both rear roller bolts clockwise, 1/4 of a turn. When the walking belt is correctly tightened, you should be able to lift each side of the walking belt 8???10 cm (3???4 in.) off the walking platform. Be careful to keep the walking belt centred. Plug in the power cord, insert the key, and carefully walk on the treadmill for a few minutes. Repeat until the walking belt is properly tightened.

PROBLEM: The treadmill rocks during use

logo on the sensor unit is facing forward and is right- side-up.

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 so- lution, 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

SOLUTION: a. If the treadmill rocks slightly during use, turn one or both of the Leveling Feet (127) under the Upright (99) until the the rocking motion is eliminated. Note: If nec- essary, tip the treadmill forward and use a phillips screwdriver to turn the Leveling Feet.
