BEFORE YOU BEGIN Thank you for selecting the revolutionary NordicTrack C2100 treadmill. The C2100 treadmill offers a selec- tion of features designed to make your workouts at home more enjoyable and effective. And when you’re not exercising, the unique C2100 treadmill can be folded up, requiring less than half the floor space of other treadmills.
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.
2. With the help of a second person, set the console assem- bly on the Uprights (85). Make sure that no wires are pinched. Attach the console assembly with four Console Bolts (72), Washers (96), and Star Washers (67) (only one side is shown).
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 26). To protect the floor or carpet from damage, place a mat under the treadmill.
(see drawing 1 at the right). To purchase a surge suppressor, see your local NordicTrack dealer or call the toll-free telephone number on the front cover of this man- ual and order part number 146148, or see your local electronics store.
In addition, the console features eight preset programs. Each program automatically controls the speed and in- cline of the treadmill as it guides you through an effec- tive workout. The console also offers two heart rate pro- grams that control the speed and incline of the treadmill to keep your heart rate near a target heart rate during your workouts.
When you are finished exercising, remove the key. Step onto the foot rails, press the Stop button, and adjust the incline of the treadmill to the lowest setting. The incline must be at the lowest setting when the treadmill is folded to the storage posi- tion or the treadmill will be damaged.
HOW TO USE A HEART RATE PROGRAM Heart rate program 1 will automatically adjust the speed and incline of the treadmill to keep your heart rate near a target heart rate that you select. Heart rate program 2 will keep your heart rate within a preset range.
If your pulse is not detected during the program, the letters “PLS” will flash in the Pulse/Speed dis- play and the speed and/or incline of the treadmill may automatically decrease. If this occurs, see the instructions included with the optional chest pulse sensor.
