HOW TO USE THE AIR WALKER XT
RESISTANCE ADJUSTMENT
CAUTION: When mounting or dismounting
the AIR WALKER XT, hold the frame beside
the hip pad and center your weight over the
pedals.
To vary the intensity of your workout, the resistance of
the AIR WALKER XT can be adjusted. CAUTION: Do
not adjust the resistance while you are standing
on the AIR WALKER XT. Always dismount the AIR
WALKER XT before adjusting the resistance. To
adjust the resistance, turn the resistance dials on the
resistance cylinders. There are twelve different resistance levels. Arrows on the resistance cylinders will
show which resistance level is selected. Select the
same resistance level on both cylinders.
CAUTION: When using the AIR WALKER XT,
always hold the handles or place your hands
on the frame beside the hip pad.
CAUTION: When using the independent
mode, hold the frame beside the hip pad and
be careful to control your movement and
maintain your balance at all times.
Resistance
Dial
The unique AIR WALKER XT can be used in either
the dependent mode or the independent mode In
the dependent mode, as one pedal moves forward,
the other pedal moves backward an equal distance. In
the independent mode, the pedals move independently of each other, allowing for a freer movement.
HOW TO USE THE DEPENDENT
MODE
Make sure that the lock knob is tightened into the left
leg and link plate. Adjust the resistance to a high
setting (see RESISTANCE ADJUSTMENT at the
right). Hold the handles and step onto the pedals. The
proper form for exercising on the AIR WALKER XT is
similar to the motion of walking--move one leg
forward as you move the other leg back.
CAUTION: The resistance cylinders become very
hot during use. Allow the resistance cylinders to
cool before touching them. When adjusting the
resistance, touch only the resistance dials.
ELECTRONIC
The electronic monitor offers five modes to provide
instant exercise feedback:
For a full body workout, hold the handles as you walk,
and move your arms and legs in motion with the
handles and pedals. To vary the effect of the exercise,
change your stance on the AIR WALKER XT by
bending your legs slightly instead of keeping them
straight.
Time--Displays the length of time you have exercised.
Note: If the display reaches 99 minutes and 59
seconds, it will reset to zero and continue counting.
Reps/Min--Displays the number of repetitions you
are completing per minute.
For a lower body workout, rest your hands on the
frame for balance as you move the pedals.
HOW TO USE THE INDEPENDENT
MONITOR MODES
Reps--Displays
the total number of repetitions you
have completed. Note: If the display reaches 8,190, it
will reset to zero and continue counting.
MODE
Remove the lock knob and washers from the left leg.
Keep the lock knob and washers in a secure place.
Calories--Displays
the approximate number of
Calories you have burned. Note: If the resistance is
near the highest or lowest setting, the actual number
of Calories you have burned will be slightly higher or
lower than the number displayed.
Adjust the resistance to a high setting, hold the
frame, and step onto the pedals. Exercise as
described above. CAUTION: When using the independent mode, hold the frame beside the hip pad
and be careful to control your movement and
maintain your balance at all times.
Scan--Displays
the other four modes, for five
seconds each, in a repeating cycle.

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.
your body begin to use stored fat calories for energy. If
your goal is to burn fat, adjust your pace until your
heart rate is near the lowest number in your training
zone as you exercise. It may also be helpful to set the
dials on the resistance cylinders at level 1, 2, 3, or 4.
cise
For maximum fat burning, adjust your pace until your
heart rate is near the middle number in your training
zone as you exercise.
program, consult your physician, This is
especially
imPortant for persons ove r the age
of 35 or persons with pre-existing health
problems.
Aerobic Exercise
EXERCISE INTENSITY
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 your pace until your heart
rate is near the highest number in your training zone.
It may also be helpful to set the dials on the resistance
cylinders at level 5, 6, 7, or 8.
Whether your goal is to burn fat or 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.
BPM
HEART RATE TRAINING
Strength
ZONES
Training
To strengthen and tone your muscles, you must exercise your muscles at a moderate to high percentage of
their capacity. Set the dials on the resistance cylinders
at level 9, 10, 11, or 12.
HOW TO MEASURE YOUR HEART RATE
Age 20
30
40
50
60
70
To measure your heart rate, stop exercising and place
two fingers on your wrist as shown. Take a six-second
heartbeat
count, and
multiply the
result by 10 to
find your heart
rate. For
example, if
your sixsecond heartbeat count is
14, your heart
rate is 140
beats per minute. (A six-second count is used because
your heart rate will drop rapidly when you stop
exercising.)
80
To find the proper heart rate for you, first find your age
near the bottom of the chart (ages are rounded off to
the nearest ten years). Next, look above your age and
find the three numbers in light grey boxes. 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; the highest number is the
recommended heart rate for aerobic exercise.
Fat Burning
To burn fat effectively, you must exercise at a relatively low intensity level for a sustained period of time.
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
Adjust the intensity of your exercise until your heart
rate is at the desired level. You can adjust the intensity
of your exercise by adjusting the resistance or by
changing your pace.

WORKOUT GUIDELINES
when you stop exercising suddenly. Stretching for
increased flexibility is also most effective after exercising. A proper cool-down should leave you relaxed and
comfortably tired.
Each workout should include the following three parts:
A warm-up, lasting 5 to 10 minutes. Begin
controlled stretches, and progress to more
stretches to increase the body temperature,
and circulation in preparation for strenuous
with slow,
rhythmic
heart rate,
exercise.
EXERCISE FREQUENCY
Training zone exercise, consisting of 20 to 30 minutes of exercising with your heart rate in your training
zone.
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.
A cool-down, with 5 to 10 minutes of stretching.
Thorough stretching helps to offset problems caused
Remember, the key to success is make exercise a
regular and enjoyable part of your everyday life.
