Unfolding a ProForm Treadmill
Treadmills are a popular piece of exercise equipment, providing a great way to get in your daily cardio. One of the most convenient features of many treadmills is the ability to fold them up and store them away when they’re not in use. But if you’ve recently purchased a ProForm treadmill, you may be wondering how to properly unfold it. Here’s a step-by-step guide to unfolding your ProForm treadmill safely and correctly.
1. Place the treadmill on a flat surface. Be sure to have it away from any walls or other objects.
2. Locate the release lever(s). Depending on the model, you may have one or two release levers. On most ProForm treadmills, the levers are located near the front, just below the console.
3. Push the lever(s) down. Push the lever down until you hear a click that indicates the treadmill is unlocked.
4. Hold the console. Firmly grasp the console with both hands.
5. Pull the treadmill upward. Slowly and steadily pull the treadmill upward until it is in an upright position.
6. Lock the lever(s). Push the lever up until you hear another click that indicates the treadmill is locked.
7. Check the safety key. Many ProForm treadmills are equipped with a safety key that must be inserted into the console before the treadmill can be used. Make sure the key is properly inserted and functioning before using the treadmill.
Now that your ProForm treadmill is unfolded and ready for use, you can enjoy a safe and effective workout. Be sure to read the user manual for any additional safety tips or instructions.
