D) Insert the red plastic safety key into the slot at the center front edge of the treadmill control console. All LED displays should light up and a tone will sound. Attach the other end of the key leash to the waistband of your clothing. REMOVAL OF THIS KEY AT ANY TIME WILL CAUSE THE TREADMILL TO STOP IMMEDIATELY and all values such as time, mileage and calories will be lost and reset to zero. Stand with one foot on each side of the treadmill walking belt surface as the starting position for all operations. Before starting, locate the STOP button at the lower center of the control console. Remember that the treadmill is designed for users up to 250 lbs. E) For Manual operation, press the speed increase button (symbol + on console) and you will note that the number in the right-hand window is changing. A tone will sound when the button is pressed and released. Speed increases or decreases in 0.1MPH increments starting at 1.0MPH and stopping at a top speed of 10.0 MPH. Hold the speed increase button until you reach your desired starting speed. As soon as you release the speed increase button, a tone will sound and the motor will start and steadily increase speed to reach the speed you entered. Hold on to the handrails of the treadmill while you view the moving belt. When you feel comfortable with the pace of the belt, step onto the belt and begin walking. Do not continue to stare at the belt. Look up. When you are comfortable with the pace, you may choose to let go of the treadmill handrails. NOTE: Due to the varying weight of users and other factors, you may notice a variation in the speed of the belt compared to the setting you chose. This will happen during the entire workout and is not a malfunction. F) QUICK RESPONSE SPEED The QRS system allows the user to move to one of the quick speed levels with convenience of 2 button strokes. PRESS the QRS button and press your chosen speed level button, 2, 4, 6, 8 or 10 MPH, on the console. You must make the speed choice within 5 seconds of pushing the QRS button. The treadmill will automatically move to the new chosen speed at the standard rate of increase or decrease. BE ALERT! The QRS system works whether the belt is moving OR stopped. G) In Manual operation, to decrease speed, press the speed decrease button (symbol - on console). A tone will sound when the button is pressed and released. The number in the right-hand window will change to reflect the new speed that you have chosen. The treadmill will gradually reduce speed after you release the decrease button until it reaches the new speed that you have entered. YOU MAY STOP THE TREADMILL IMMEDIATELY BY REMOVING THE SAFETY KEY MENTIONED, or by pressing the red STOP button located near the middle of the console. The treadmill will stop more gradually using the STOP button than by using the safety key. NOTE: The right-hand window only shows the speed while you are adjusting the speed OR if you press the MODE button. Pressing the MODE button will display the current speed setting for 5 seconds. At all other times, the distance the treadmill belt has traveled during the current session will be displayed. It is displayed in 00.1-mile increments up to 99.9 miles after which it returns to 00.0 miles. You can also determine which value is being displayed by noting which small, round LED above the window is currently lit. The left side LED indicates speed and the right side LED indicates distance.

H) The walking belt of all treadmills may occasionally move to the right or left causing the belt to come into contact or near contact with other fixed parts of the treadmill. For best operation, the belt should stay nearly centered on the supporting deck. The user may occasionally need to correct the position of the belt. At the rear of the treadmill there are two adjustment bolt heads (#29). See illustration above. These are used to move the belt to the left or right as follows: 1. No one should be standing on the belt while making these adjustments. 2. Start the treadmill belt moving according to the instructions. 3. Set the speed at approximately 5.0 mph. The faster the belt is running, the faster the adjustment will be seen. CAUTION: If you adjust the belt too far, you may not be able to stop the right or left movement of the belt before it reaches the side of the deck and other parts of the treadmill. This may cause damage to your belt or treadmill. This is not covered by the warranty.

4. Insert the short end of the Allen wrench provided into the bolt head. If the belt is too far to the right as looking at the treadmill from the rear, use the right side bolt. If the belt is too far left, use the left side bolt. 5. With the belt running, turn the Allen wrench 1/2 turn clockwise. Observe the belt. It should start moving away from the side. Turning the bolt head clockwise (either bolt head) will cause the walking belt to move away from the bolt you are turning. 6. You may repeat the 12 turn two (2) more times for a total of three 12 turns. Allow some time, at least 30 seconds for the belt to move. 7. Never make more than three half turns of the same bolt head. If, after three 12 turns the belt remains out of position, use the other side for adjustment as follows: If you have been using the right side bolt, move to the left side. Turn the bolt counterclockwise 12 turn. (See illustration above.) Turning the bolt head counterclockwise (either bolt head) will cause the walking belt to move toward the bolt you are turning. Allow some time, at least 30 seconds for the belt to move. If your belt appears to slip as you are walking on it, you should tighten the belt somewhat to eliminate the slip. Follow the instructions above EXCEPT make an equal number of adjustment turns on EACH bolt. It may take a number of complete revolutions to tighten your belt. Turning the bolt heads clockwise will tighten the belt. Make one complete revolution adjustment to each bolt head and then walk on the your treadmill to test for slipping. If it still slips, repeat the operation. After making 2 complete turns of each bolt and slipping still occurs, make 12 turns in each bolt and test after each side is adjusted. Adjusting the walking belt too tight can cause damage to your treadmill. FOLLOW THESE INSTRUCTIONS. I) PULSE MODE. The pulse sensor is on whenever the red safety key is inserted. For safety and enhanced accuracy, the treadmill should be stopped whenever you place your finger on the pulse sensor. To take your pulse reading, stop your treadmill by pressing the stop button. Your distance and time values will be saved. Place one foot on each siderail and remain as still as you possibly can. Place your index finger OVER the pulse lens. Three bars should appear within a few seconds. In addition, the upper left side LED above the left-hand window will light. This signals that the pulse reading is eminent. Two seconds after the bars appear they will disappear one at a time. The sensor will then display the average pulse rate. Once finished, re-start your treadmill by resetting your speed value as instructed in #E or complete your workout by removing the safety key. NOTE: 1) DO NOT press your finger firmly onto the lens. Too much pressure on your finger tip, movement of your hand or body will result in the wrong reading or no reading at all. 2) THE PULSE SENSOR IS NOT A MEDICAL DEVICE. IT IS MEANT FOR YOUR INFORMATION PURPOSES ONLY AND IS DESIGNED TO GIVE AN AVERAGE PULSE RATE. IT IS NOT INTENDED TO OFFER MEDICAL ADVICE NOR WILL IT MEASURE PULSE ACCURATELY EVERY TIME. J) CALORIE BURN. The calories burned during the current workout are displayed in the left-hand window of the control console. It will show values from 001 to 999. Calories expended are controlled by distance, not speed. K) STOPPING THE TREADMILL. When you are finished with your workout or at any time during the workout, you may stop the treadmill in a number of ways: A) Depress and release the STOP button. The treadmill will gradually slow to 00.0MPH and the distance covered and calories burned during that workout will continue to be displayed on the console. The values will stay for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, all values will clear and you must start again with instruction #D. You can clear the values by pressing and holding the STOP button for 5 seconds. You can then start the treadmill by pressing the SPEED increase button in Instruction #E.

The treadmill may be folded to reduce the floor space the treadmill occupies when it is not in use. With the treadmill off AND unplugged, you may lift the deck by the rear portion until it reaches the console. You must be able to lift and support at least 75 lbs. to perform this operation. Align the sliding bolt on the underside of the treadmill with the plastic receiver hole in the right side hand rail. Slide the Locking Bolt into the Lock Receiver hole and press the handle down to firmly lock the treadmill in the upright position. Carefully and slowly remove your hand from the deck and assure that the lock is engaged. The deck should not move when the lock is engaged. Supporting the weight of the deck as before, carefully lower the deck to the floor. DO NOT DROP THE DECK. Once it is in the use position, start again with Instruction #A. MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS 1. LUBRICATION: Your deck and walking belt come from the factory ready to use. There is no need to apply any lubricant in order to start to use your new treadmill. We recommend that a small amount of the lubricant provided on your parts tray be applied after 200 hours of use. For example, after using your treadmill for 5 days a week at 45 minutes per day, your treadmill will need to be lubricated in about one year. 2. In order to apply the lubricant your must follow these steps: A. Unplug the treadmill from the electrical outlet. B. Loosen the belt tension a small amount by turning the roller adjustment screws at the end of the treadmill counter clockwise (to the left). Use the hex key that was provided with your treadmill. You may need to turn both these screws at least 2 full turns or more to provide the slack you need to perform the lubrication.

C. When you can lift the edge of the treadmill walking belt a small distance from the deck, one inch or so, you will have enough space to apply the lubricant. D. Snip the end of the needle top of the silicone container with a scissors or other sharp object. Be careful not to cut off too much of the top. You need a very small opening to properly apply the lubricant. There is a cap provided to close the container after use. Push the needle top of the container under the belt as far as you can and apply the silicone directly to the deck. The silicone should be applied in drops or in a very thin stream. Apply the silicone the entire length of the deck on both sides of the walking belt. One application per side is all that is needed. E. Tighten the roller adjustment screws by turning them clockwise (to the right) the exact same number of turns that you used to loosen them. You must now make sure that the treadmill walking belt is centered. F. Plug the treadmill in to the electrical outlet. G. With no one on the treadmill, start it at a slow speed, less than 2.5 MPH. Watch the belt for 30 to 60 seconds. If it is running in the center of the deck, increase the speed to 5.0 MPH and observe if it stays in the center of the deck. If it stays in the center, the treadmill is ready to use. H. If the belt is off center of moves back and forth on the deck, refer to your operating instructions for the belt adjustment procedure.

A WORD ABOUT TREADMILLS


The use of a treadmill can sometimes produce static electricity. The discharge of this electricity can be annoying, startling and uncomfortable. It usually comes in the form of an unexpected snap or pop when touching some of the metal parts on the treadmill. Sportcraft takes great care in engineering their treadmills to eliminate this discharge however factors outside of our control do sometimes lead to static buildup. Some of the common causes of static buildup and discharge involve the shoes and clothing of the user. Our testing has shown that certain footwear may be more prone to a buildup of static electricity. Our tests also show that certain nylon and other polyester material in garments may be more prone to a buildup of static electricity much the same as footwear. IF YOU ARE EXPERIENCING STATIC ELECTRICITY DISCHARGE WHILE USING YOUR TREADMILL, CHANGE YOUR FOOTWEAR AND/OR YOUR OUTER GARMENTS. If you continue to experience static electricity while using your treadmill, tests have shown that the use of Static Guard, a product sold in grocery and discount stores, can eliminate the discharge of static electricity. Spray the product directly on the treadmill belt while it is moving at a slow speed. Coat the entire belt surface. Allow the product to completely dry for at least 10 minutes or such longer time as directed by the static spray manufacturer. Check your footing on the belt before you restart your workout. Reapply the static spray if necessary. Please contact Sportcraft Consumer Affairs Division at 1-800-526-0244 or by e-mail at sportcraft@sportcraft.co m if you have any questions, concerns or needs concerning static electricity or any other concerns with your Sportcraft treadmill.

WORKOUT AND TRAINING TIPS


Got a question about how to make the most of your treadmill workout? Take a look below to find out more about getting quicker results, exercising safely, staying motivated, and having fun too! Why should I workout? The benefits of exercise are far-reaching. You can not only lose weight and tone muscle, especially as part of a complete healthy lifestyle that includes good nutrition, but you can also relieve stress, keep your bones strong, and lower your risk of some health-oriented illnesses. How often do I workout? Fitness experts* say that to get best conditioning for your heart and lungs and for good health you should workout aerobically, such as running or walking, 3 to 5 days a week. If you are a beginner, 3 days a week will be plenty until your body gets used to it. If you have already been working out, 4-5 days a week will help you get more fit. Try to alternate an exercise day with a rest day. If you workout, 4-5 days a week, make sure your back-to-back exercise days alternate between being easy and hard, or shorter and longer. Remember, rest is also an important part of working out whether you are a beginner or more advanced. How long should a workout be? A total of 20 to 60 minutes on a workout day is your goal, fitness experts say.* A beginner does less; if you have experience, you can do more. If you dont have time or arent comfortable doing all of it at once, you can also break up your exercise into 10-minute segments during the day for the same results. For example, if your goal is a 30-minute walk, you can do 3, 10-minute walks. How hard do I workout? A workout for general conditioning, good fitness, better health, and weight loss should be moderate - not too hard and not too easy.* You should be able to talk without feeling out of breath, but you shouldnt be able to deliver a lecture! You should be able to sustain your workout intensity for the length of time you choose. If you are new to exercise, keep the workout feeling a little easier until your body gets used to it. As you advance, you can work out harder. What do I do during a workout? There are three parts to any workout: Warm-up - 5-10 minutes - At an easy pace to loosen your muscles and warm-up your heart. You can either walk or jog on the treadmill at slower speed, or do other light aerobic activities for a few minutes to let your muscles to prepare themselves for the aerobic section. Aerobic section - 20-60 minutes - As described in the above questions. Cool-down - 5-10 minutes - To let your breathing, and heart rate slowdown. Remain on the treadmill, walking or jogging at a gradually slower pace during the cool-down. Then stretch. Why should I stretch and when is the best time? When you exercise, your muscles work hard and contract or get tight. Stretching help muscles return to their preexercise looseness so you can avoid injury. Its best to stretch after a cool-down when you are warm and muscles are pliable. Fitness experts* recommend you: Stretch 2 to 3 days a week. Stretch the major muscles you used. For example, on a treadmill, the muscles used include: hamstrings (back of upper legs), thighs (front of upper legs), calves, shins (front of lower legs), hips, back, and chest. Hold each position for 10-30 seconds just to a point of mild tension but not pain. Do not bounce and keep your breathing steady. Stretch each muscle 3 to 4 times per session for best results. Do I need special shoes for a treadmill workout? If you are going to mostly walk or mostly run, invest in shoes made for that specific activity if possible. Shoes dont need to be expensive. They should in general offer: Good support. Walking shoes in particular need excellent heel support, called a heel cup. Enough cushioning for your needs. Running shoes will have more in the forefoot, and walking shoes will have less overall because of lower impact. Breathable uppers so your sweat and heat can escape. Forefoot flexibility, especially for walking.

What should I wear? Wear comfortable clothing that allows you to move freely. For example: Loose pants or sweats, or exercise tights, depending on your personal taste. Man-made wicking fibers, such as polyester, CoolMax, or Lycra that dont just soak up and hold the sweat like cotton does and can be more comfortable when you sweat. Synthetic socks, which also dont absorb all your sweat and can help fend off blisters since they dont stay wet and soggy. Is there a special technique? Stand tall, with shoulders back, chest lifted, and abdominal muscles tight. Avoid leaning forward from your waist, or hanging onto the rails except to catch your balance or to get on and off. Use your arms strongly as you swing them forward and backward from the shoulder, and dont neglect the swing backward! Walkers should also land on their heels with toes lifted high and roll through the entire foot. Runners should land quietly and softly. How do I stay motivated? Does it matter where I put the treadmill? Set up the treadmill in a room that is well-ventilated and inviting so you want to go there. Windows are helpful so you can get air and look outside. A music system can help entertain and motivate, as can a TV or VCR. Try watching movies or your favorite sports team during a workout! Also, experiment with varying your intensity and incline during a workout. Log your progress so you can keep track of your changes and improvement. Why should I drink water? Water keeps your engine running smoothly and safely. Keep a plastic sport bottle of water handy during a workout and sip as you go. Drink at least 8 to 10 cups of fluids a day - more if you workout or its hot. If you feel thirsty, youre already dehydrated. * American College of Sports Medicine (www.acsm.org): ACSMs Guidelines For Exercise Testing and Prescription/ Sixth Edition, Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2000. Cautions If you are a women over 55 or a man over 45 and have not been exercising regularly, or if you have a family history of diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, or other health problems such as high blood pressure or high cholesterol, or you are a smoker, or you are very overweight, consult with a physician before beginning an exercise program. If you experience dizziness, headaches, numbness, tingling, disorientation, unsteadiness, shortness of breath, leg swelling, nausea, headaches, feel unusually fatigued, or experience any other unusual symptoms or pain, stop immediately and consult with your physician.
