Congratulations on your commitment toward better health and fitness! The staff at Aerobics Inc. would like to thank you for purchasing a PaceMaster treadmill. Not only did you buy one of the highest quality treadmills on the market; you also received excellent value for your dollar. PaceMaster treadmills have been rated “BEST BUY”...
Aerobics, Inc. • Never operate your PaceMaster treadmill if it has a damaged cord or plug, if it is not operating properly, if it has been dropped or damaged or if it has been immersed in water. Should any of these occur, contact your authorized PaceMaster retailer or service center for examination or repair.
Your P should be installed indoors on a flat, level surface near a 120Volt/ 15Amp outlet. PaceMaster requires a dedicated, non- switched outlet that is not part of a GFI (Ground Fault Interrupter) circuit, preferably no more than 5 feet from the outlet to eliminate the need for an extension cord.
Grounding Instructions DANGER: This product must be properly grounded. If it should malfunction or become inoperable, 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.
To install the motor cover, stand in front of the treadmill. Pick up the motor cover (16) so it is level and the word PaceMaster is upside down. Holding the motor cover level and waist high, tilt it 45 degrees by lowering your left hand.
Press the START/STOP button. Within a few seconds, the tread belt will begin to move. If the tread belt does not move, or the treadmill stops after a few seconds and displays an error code, make a note of the error code and contact the authorized PaceMaster retailer where you purchased your treadmill.
WARM UP / COOL DOWN – To achieve the maximum benefit from your workout, fitness experts advise that you warm up for a minimum of 5 minutes before and cool down for a minimum of 5 minutes after your main aerobic routine. This is a built-in feature on all PaceMaster treadmills.
Aerobic Points is a system of measuring the aerobic benefit of the workout. You can see how many Aerobic Points you have earned at any time by pressing the AEROBIC POINTS button. The POINTS indicator light will be illuminated. You can toggle between Calories and Aerobic Points by pressing the corresponding button.
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS Initially, you may want to keep both hands on the side rails until you feel comfortable walking on your ProPlus . Once comfortable, try Removing your hands to let them swing naturally, as you would walking outdoors. Always hold on to the side rail or front handle bar with one hand when operating the buttons of the control panel.
QUICK START Once you have entered your weight, Quick Start allows you to begin your workout by pressing one button. You control the speed, incline and time.

One of the main reasons people stop exercising is because they don’t see the physical changes they expected. Results, however, can only be realized when you are training properly. For this reason, the Aerobic Point System has been incorporated into the design of PaceMaster treadmills since 1968.
