The displays are described below: HOW TO ADJUST THE PEDALING To increase the resistance of the pedals, turn the resistance knob clockwise; to decrease the resistance, turn the knob counterclockwise. Important: Stop turning the knob when turning becomes difficult, or damage may result, RPM SPEED TARGET TiME PULSE DISTANCE SENSOR / RESISTANCE Thumb Pulse Sensor Speed--This display shows your pedaling speed, in miles or kilometers per hour. Time--This Knob display shows the elapsed time. Distance--This display shows the distance you have pedaled, in miles or kilometers per hour. Calories--This display shows the approximate number of calories you have burned. Fat Calories--This display shows the approximate number of fat calories you have burned (see Burning Fat on page 11). Pulse--This display shows your heart rate when you use the thumb pulse sensor. Scan--This display shows speed, time, distance, calories, fat calories, and pulse information in a repeating cycle. Note: The pulse display will appear only when you use the thumb pulse sensor. HOWTOUSE THE CONSOLE Note: The console can show speed and distance in either miles or kilometers, The letters Before using the console, make sure that batteries are installed (see assembly step 7 on page 6). If there is a sheet of clear plastic on the display, remove the plastic. "mph" or "km/h" will appear in the display to show which unit of measurement is selected.

Then, place your thumb on the pulse sensor as described above. To select SCAN FAT CALS. CALORIES speed, time, distance, calories, or fat calories information for continuous RPM SPEED TiME DISTANCE display, press the Display button repeatedly. The indicators will show which display is selected. Make sure there is not an indicator below the word Scan. Make sure you are applying the proper amount of pressure to the pulse sensor. Try the pulse sensor several times until you become familiar with it. Remember to sit still while measuring your heart rate. B hen you are finished exercising, the console will turn off automatically.

As you pedal, the RPM meter on the left side of the display will indicate your approximate pedaling pace in revolutions per minute (rpm). The lowest bar on the RPM meter indicates a pedaling pace of 30 rpm. Additional bars will appear or disappear in increments of 10 rpm as you change your pedaling pace. 9 MAINTENANCE AND TROUBLESHOOTING Inspect and tighten all parts of the exercise cycle regularly. Replace any worn parts immediately. Switch slightly closer to or away from the Magnet, and then retighten the Screw. Turn the Crank for a moment. Repeat until the console displays correct feedback. When the Reed Switch is correctly adjusted, reattach the left side shield, the upright covers, and the left pedal. To clean the exercise cycle, use a damp cloth and a small amount of mild detergent. Important: To avoid damage to the console, keep liquids away from the console and keep the console out of direct sunlight. HOW TO ADJUST THE BELT BATTERY REPLACEMENT If you can feel the pedals slip while you are pedaling, even when the resistance is at the highest level, the belt may need to be adjusted. See HOW TO ADJUST THE REED SWITCH at the left and remove the left pedal, the upright covers, and the left side shield. If the console display becomes dim, the batteries should be replaced; most console problems are the result of low batteries. To replace the batteries, see assembly step 7 on page 6. To adjust the belt, you must also remove the right pedal and the right side shield. Using an adjustable wrench, turn the right pedal counterclockwise and remove it. Then, remove the screws from the right side shield. Note: One screw from the side shield is shorter than the other screws. Make sure to note the correct location of the short screw. Then, carefully remove the right side shield. HOW TO ADJUST THE REED SWITCH If the console does not display correct feedback, the reed switch should be adjusted. To adjust the reed switch, the left pedal, the upright covers, and the left side shield must be removed. Using an adjustable wrench, turn the left pedal clockwise and remove it. Next, remove the screws from the upright covers and the left side shield. Note: One screw from the side shield is shorter than the other screws. Make sure to note the correct location of the short screw. Then, carefully remove the upright covers and the left side shield. Next, loosen, but do not remove, the M8 x 20mm Bolt (23). Loosen the two M8 Nylon Locknuts (10), one on each side of the Flywheel (37). Tighten the M6 Nylon Locknuts (32), one on each side of the Flywheel, until the Belt (35) is properly tightened. Then, tighten the M8 Nylon Locknuts (10) and the M8 x 20mm Bolt (23). Finally, reattach the side shields, the upright covers, and the pedals. Next, turn the resistance knob to the lowest setting. With the left side shield removed, locate the Reed Switch (43). Turn the Crank (21) until the Magnet (38) is aligned with the Reed Switch. Loosen, but do not remove, the M4 x 15mm Screw (47). Slide the Reed 10 CONDITIONING GUIDELINES The following guidelines will help you to plan your exercise program. Remember that proper nutrition and adequate rest are essential for successful results. During the first few minutes of exercise, your body uses easily accessible carbohydrate calories for energy. Only after the first few minutes of exercise does your body begin to use stored fat calories for energy. If your goal is to burn fat, adjust the intensity of your exercise until your heart rate is near the lowest number in your training zone as you exercise. For maximum fat burning, adjust the intensity of your exercise until your heart rate is near the middle number in your training zone as you exercise. WARNING: Before beginning this or any exercise program, consult your physician. This is especially important for persons over the age of 35 or persons with pre-existing health problems. Aerobic Exercise The pulse sensc r is not a medical device. Various factors may affect the accuracy of heart rate readings. The pulse sensor is intended only as an exercise aid in determining heart rate trends in general. If your goal is to strengthen your cardiovascular system, your exercise must be "aerobic." Aerobic exercise is activity that requires large amounts of oxygen for prolonged periods of time. This increases the demand on the heart to pump blood to the muscles, and on the lungs to oxygenate the blood. For aerobic exercise, adjust the intensity of your exercise until your heart rate is near the highest number in your training zone. EXERCISE INTENSITY Whether your goal is to burn fat or to strengthen your cardiovascular system, the key to achieving the desired results is to exercise with the proper intensity. The proper intensity level can be found by using your heart rate as a guide. The chart below shows recommended heart rates for fat burning, maximum fat burning, and cardiovascular (aerobic) exercise. 165 155 145 140 130 125 115 145 138 130 125 118 110 103 125 120 115 110 105 95 90 20 80 30 40 50 60 70 WORKOUT GUIDELINES Each workout should include the following three parts: A warm-up, consisting of 5 to 10 minutes of stretching and light exercise. A proper warm-up increases your body temperature, heart rate, and circulation in preparation for exercise. _ Training zone exercise, consisting of 20 to 30 minutes of exercising with your heart rate in your training zone. (During the first few weeks of your exercise program, do not keep your heart rate in your training zone for longer than 20 minutes.) _) A cool-down, with 5 to 10 minutes of stretching (see page 12). This will increase the flexibility of your muscles and will help to prevent post-exercise problems. To find the proper heart rate for you, first find your age at the bottom of the chart (ages are rounded off to the nearest ten years). Next, find the three numbers above your age. The three numbers are your "training zone." The lowest number is the recommended heart rate for fat burning, the middle number is the recommended heart rate for maximum fat burning, and the highest number is the recommended heart rate for aerobic exercise. EXERClSEFREQUENCY To maintain or improve your condition, plan three workouts each week, with at least one day of rest between workouts. After a few months of regular exercise, you may complete up to five workouts each week, if desired. Remember, the key to success is make exercise a regular and enjoyable part of your everyday life. Burning Fat To burn fat effectively, you must exercise at a relatively low intensity level for a sustained period of time. 11 SUGGESTED STRETCHES The correct form for several basic stretches is shown at the right.
