You should look into Youtube for a vid of dissassembly and reassembly. Youtube is a wonderful tool as techs love to teach.
Also, typically, the entire upper structure folds flat onto the walk belt for easy storage.
Here is a link to the Owners manuel. It will show you assembly, so you can simply work in reverse.
Looks like it may be easier to remove the feet once you have it folded.

Treadmil stops or slows down upon walking.

Check both belts to be sure they are adjusted and not slipping.Check the underside of the walk belt to see if it feels frayed in the center as compared to the edges, the center always wears more than the edges a really worn belt must be replaced. if it is nor worn there is a wax lubricant for proform treadmills that can be purchased at retail stores that sell treadmills.Sears, dicks sporting goods and also are good places to buy it.
