may also interfere with heart rate measurement.

Fitness guide
Starting and Finishing Your Workout
Begin and end each workout with a Warm Up / Down session - a few minutes of stretching to
help prevent strains, pulls and cramps.
Correct Cycling Form
• Sit on the cycle, with your feet on the pedals and inside the pedal straps.
• Ensure that the seat height is adjusted correctly - you should be stable and balanced whilst
on the saddle. The basic rule for getting the seat height right is that as the pedal reaches its
lowest point, the leg is almost straight.
• Try to ensure that your back is straight whilst exercising, especially for long periods.
Suggested Stretches
The correct form for several basic stretches is shown at the right. Move slowly as you stretch—
never bounce.
1. Hamstring Stretch
2. Calf/Achilles Stretch
3. Quadriceps Stretch
4. Inner Thigh Stretch
Sit with one leg
extended. Bring the
sole of the opposite
foot toward you and
rest it against the inner
thigh of your extended
leg. Reach toward your
toes as far as possible.
Hold for 15 counts, then
relax. Repeat 3 times
for each leg. Stretches:
Hamstrings, lower back
and groin.
With one leg in front of
the other, reach forward
and place your hands
against a wall. Keep your
back leg straight and
your back foot flat on the
floor. Bend your front leg,
lean forward and move
your hips toward the wall.
Hold for 15 counts, then
relax. Repeat 3 times for
each leg. To cause further
stretching of the achilles
tendons, bend your back
leg as well. Stretches:
Calves, achilles tendons
and ankles.
With one hand against a
wall for balance, reach
back and grasp one foot
with your other hand. Bring
your heel as close to your
buttocks as possible. Hold
for 15 counts, then relax.
Repeat 3 times for each
leg. Stretches: Quadriceps
and hip muscles.
Sit with the soles of your
feet together and your
knees outward. Pull your
feet toward your groin
area as far as possible.
Hold for 15 counts, then
relax. Repeat 3 times.
Stretches: Quadriceps
and hip muscles.

How Long Should I Exercise For?
That really depends on your current level of fitness. If you’re just starting out on a new exercise
program, you should start gradually and build up - do not try to do too much too quickly. 30
minutes, 3 times a week should be enough.
Don’t push yourself too hard - you should never feel exhausted during or following exercise.
Heart Rate Training
To get the most out of your new piece of fitness equipment and see the best results from your
training you should exercise at the right level of effort, and that means listening to your heart!
Working out to a target heart rate means you can direct your workout to achieve different goals:
Good health - For those wishing to improve quality of life and general well being. Your sessions
will need to be done at an intensity of between 50 - 60% of your estimated maximum heart rate,
should last about 30 minutes and can be done on most days of the week.
Weight loss - To see a significant reduction in body fat, your sessions must be a little more intense
- between 60 and 70% of your estimated maximum heart rate. These sessions can also be
performed on most days of the week for up to 30 minutes.
Improving fitness levels - These sessions should be performed at 70 - 80% of your estimated
maximum heart rate and can also involve bouts of interval training that would have your heart rate
peaking for short times near your maximum heart rate level. These are intense sessions and will
require at least a 48 hour rest between sessions.
Calculating Your Target Heart Rate
First, you need to find your estimated maximum heart rate using the formula “220 minus your age
in years”. So, if you are 35 years old your estimated maximum heart rate is:
220 - 35 = 185 beats per minute (bpm)
Next, to calculate your target heart rate, simply multiply your estimated maximum heart rate
(185bpm) by the applicable percentage. So, if your goal is better health:
185 x 60% = 111bpm
NOTE: The important issue to remember with all estimated calculations is that they are just
estimates - if you don’t feel comfortable exercising at your target then reduce it to a level
you are comfortable with.
Heart rate training requires you to monitor your heart rate throughout the workout. For this we
recommend using a chest strap (if your machine has a wireless receiver) or a heart rate monitor.
For more information please get in touch using the Contact Us details.
ALWAYS CONSULT YOUR DOCTOR BEFORE UNDERTAKING A NEW EXERCISE REGIME.
IF YOU EXPERIENCE NAUSEA, DIZZINESS OR OTHER ABNORMAL SYMPTOMS DURING
EXERCISE, STOP AT ONCE AND CONSULT YOUR DOCTOR.
