HOW TO USE THE AIR WALKER
ELECTRONIC MONITOR MODES
CAUTION: When mounting and dismounting
the AIR WALKER, adjust the resistance to a
high setting, hold the handles firmly, and be
sure that your body weight is centered directly over the pedals.
The simple-to-operate electronic monitor offers
five different modes to provide instant exercise
feedback. The five modes are described below:
SpeedÑDisplays the number of repetitions you are
performing per minute.
EXERCISING ON THE AIR WALKER
TimeÑDisplays the length of time you have exercised. Note: If you stop exercising for ten seconds or
longer, the time mode will pause until you resume.
Make sure that the lock knob is tightened into the left
leg and link plate (see assembly step 2 on page 4).
Adjust the resistance to a high setting, hold the handles, and step onto the pedals. The proper form for
exercising on the AIR WALKER is similar to the
motion of walkingÑmove one leg forward as you
move the other leg back.
DistanceÑDisplays the total number of repetitions
you have completed, up to Ò999.Ó The display will then
reset to Ò0Ó and continue counting.
CaloriesÑDisplays 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.
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 on
your muscles, change your stance on the AIR
WALKER. For example, change the position of your
hands on the handles, or bend your legs slightly
instead of keeping them straight.
ScanÑDisplays the speed, time, distance, and calories modes, for approximately 5 seconds each,
in a repeating cycle.
For a lower body workout, rest your hands on the
crossbar cover for balance as you move the pedals.
DIAGRAM OF THE ELECTRONIC MONITOR
RESISTANCE ADJUSTMENT
To vary the intensity of your workout, the resistance of
the AIR WALKER can be adjusted. To change the

STORAGE AND TROUBLE-SHOOTING
Inspect and tighten all parts of the AIR WALKER regularly. Replace any worn parts immediately.
HOW TO FOLD THE AIR WALKER FOR STORAGE
When the AIR WALKER is not in use, it can be folded
for storage. To fold the AIR WALKER, first remove the
lock knob from the left leg. Next, move to the front of
the AIR WALKER and place one foot on the round
tube. Firmly grasp the frame with your hands in the
locations indicated below. While holding the round
tube stationary with your foot, pull the top of the AIR
WALKER toward you until the uprights fold against
the frame. Place the AIR WALKER in a location
where it cannot fall.

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.
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.
For maximum fat burning, adjust your pace until your
heart rate is near the middle number in your training
zone as you exercise.
Aerobic Exercise
EXERCISE INTENSITY
If your goal is to strengthen your cardiovascular system, your exercise must be Òaerobic.Ó 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.
Strength 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
To measure your heart rate, first exercise for at least
four minutes.
Then, 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 six-second heartbeat count
is 14, your heart rate is 140 beats per minute. (A sixsecond count is used because your heart rate will
drop rapidly when you stop exercising.)
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 Òtraining zone.Ó 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.
9
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 with slow,
controlled stretches, and progress to more rhythmic
stretches to increase the body temperature, heart rate,
and circulation in preparation for strenuous 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.
