Price You get what you pay for when it comes to treadmills, but for most of us any treadmill is going to be a significant investment. When you shop by price you must be even more careful to select the best in that price range. The price ranges generally break down to Budget $500-$1500, Mid-Range $1500-$3000 and Quality $3000-up. There are often significant sales and discounts. The Motor and Horsepower The motor matters - it is what gets the heaviest workout. The horsepower ratings can be confusing, the figure you want to look at is the "continuous duty rating" and shop for 1.5 to 2.5 HP "continuous duty". The "peak duty" rating is less valuable. The "treadmill duty" rating falls between continuous and peak. Look for the longest warranty on the motor, 1 year at least. DC motors are quieter. Stability and Smooth Ride Test treadmills wearing your workout shoes and clothes. A shaky or jerky ride is not acceptable. The hand rails should feel sturdy enough to support you and be in a good position to grip easily and not block your arm motion. The belt must be wide enough and long enough for your stride. Workout Features Boredom kills treadmills. Choose a model that has the most pre-set and programmable workouts to vary pace and incline. The incline and speed should be easily adjustable from the console. A pulse monitor is a big plus. A water bottle holder and book rack are essential for me. Some models plug into a VCR, CD, or internet for new workouts. Books or videos on how to use your treadmill effectively can get you going in the right direction. • Top Treadmill Accessories, Books, Video Noise and Space The treadmill needs to work in your space. How noisy is it? If you plan to watch TV or listen to music, you need to be able to hear those over the treadmill itself. A model that looks small in the store can turn into an elephant in your spare room. Check its size when folded or stored and test how easy it is to move.

The term immobilize is on the display panel and I want to start it up. How do I get it going again?


When necessary to immobilize the treadmill, set display to read SELECT A WORKOUT. (Press the STOP Key
twice if not already there). Then hold down the SPEED DOWN Key and press the STOP Key. The treadmill
now displays IMMOBILIZED. In this state, the treadmill cannot be operated. The main motor and incline are
disabled. The treadmill will remain in this state across resets, power cycles, etc. To restore normal operation,
repeat the same key sequence: hold down the SPEED DOWN Key and press the STOP Key. The treadmill will
display SELECT A WORKOUT again.

I have a Healthstream Ge3400 Lightning treadmill and I need to know how to tighten the belt as I can't find the user manual for it, It has been ages since it has been used and when you walk on it even...


hi,
Here is the steps to adjust the treadmill belt,
(1). Turn off the treadmill and remove the plug from the wall outlet to make sure it doesn't turn on during the readjustment process.

(2).Tighten the roller bolts on the rear of the treadmill belt with an Allen wrench. Tighten both the right and left bolts with 1/4 turns.

(3).Avoid tightening the bolts more than 1/4 of a turn at a time. If the belt is tightened too much, it may cause damage to the belt, which would require a replacement.

(4).Plug the treadmill into the wall and press "Power."

(5). Select a program and begin walking. If the treadmill is still slipping, turn off the treadmill, unplug it and tighten the bolt a 1/4 turn again until it is properly adjusted.

watch the following video which will help you to do the same.All brand hve the same procedure for tighten the walking belt

I have a Reebok treadmill. The belt stops while the motor continues while walking on it. What could be causing this to happen?


the drive belt is too loose. you need to tighten the belt that drives the front rolller, which drives the walking belt. depending on the type of treadmill there shoudl be a way you can do this by loosening the motor and adjusting that to tighten the belt. it could also be that the belt needs to be replaced and also could be the walking belt. you should try to tighten the walking belt first. that is at the end of the treadmill where you walk on it. there are two holes one on each side of the treadmill where teh belt goes back under the treadmill. there are allen key bolts that you need to tighten clockwise one turn then try the treadmill. if it doesnt tighten then turn another full turn. if not tight enough then it might be the drive belt. if you tighten the walking belt all the way then try to tighten the drive belt.

I have a Proform 380 Treadmill. When the treadmill is on the belt rubs on the left side.How do I center the belt?


If the walking belt is off-center, 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 centered.

After walking about 15 seconds the belt slows way down and stops completely.


The walking belt slows when walked on the walking belt maybe overtightened, treadmill performance may decrease and the walking belt may become damaged or the opposite the drive and /or running belt may need tightening. Last thing would be that the belt needs lubrication to be applied between belt and deck.
