1.2 Personal safety
+ Before you start using the equipment, you should consult your physician that this
type of exercise is suitable for you from a health perspective. Particularly affected
are persons who: have a hereditary disposition to high blood pressure or heart
disease, are over the age of 45, smoke, have high cholesterol values, are overweight
and/or have not exercised regularly in the past year.
+ Please note that working out excessively can seriously damage your health. Please
also be aware that heart rate monitoring systems might be imprecise.
+ The equipment may only be used for its intended purpose; that means for whole
body training by adults.
+ Any other usage is prohibited and potentially dangerous. The contract partner
cannot be held liable for damage resulting from improper use.
+ The equipment is strictly for use by one person at a time.
+ Children should not be allowed unsupervised access to the equipment.
+ Before starting your training, make yourself familiar with all of the equipment‘s
functions and setting options. Have an expert explain the correct usage of the
product to you.
+ Make sure that nobody is in the range of motion of the equipment while exercising.
+ Keep your hands, feet and other body parts, hair, clothing, jewelry and other
objects well clear of moving parts.

When selecting sports shoes, think about the suitability of the sole – preferably
this should be made of rubber or other non-slip materials. Shoes with heels,
leather soles, studs or spikes are not suitable. Never work out in bare feet.
+ It is also important to take note of the information given in the workout instructions
for creating a workout plan.
+ At the first signs of weakness, nausea, dizziness, pain, difficulty in breathing or
other abnormal symptoms, stop your workout immediately and, if necessary,
consult your physician.
+ Without prior agreement from your authorized contract partner, opening the
equipment is prohibited.
+ Be careful when you get on or off the equipment.
7
1.3 Electrical safety
+ The equipment requires a 220 - 230V / 50 Hertz mains power supply.
+ The equipment should be connected directly to a grounded plug socket only by
means of the power cable supplied. The use of multi-socket adapters or similar
is not recommended. Extension leads must comply with local electrical safety
guidelines. Always fully unwind the power cable.
+ The outlet should be secured with a fuse with a minimum value of „16 amperes,
slow“.
+ In order to reduce the risk of an electric shock, always unplug the equipment from
the mains socket immediately after your workout, before assembly or dismantling,
and before maintenance or cleaning. Do not pull on the cable.
+ When plugged in, do not leave the equipment unattended at any time. To avoid
use by anyone unfamiliar with the operating instructions, the power cable should
be removed when the equipment is not in use.
+ Keep the power cable away from heat, oil and sharp edges. Do not route the power
cable underneath the equipment or under a carpet or rug, and do not place any
objects on top of it.
+ Make no modifications to either the power cable or the mains plug.
+ If the power cable or the plug are damaged or defective, contact your authorized
contract partner. Do not use the equipment in the meantime.
+ Do not keep electrical devices (e. g., mobile phones) in close proximity to the
console or the control electronics, otherwise display values (e. g., pulse measuring)
could be inaccurate.
1.4 Set-up place
+ The equipment should only be used indoors, in a sufficiently heated and dry area
(ambient temperature between 10°C and 35°C). The equipment should not be
used outdoors or in rooms with high humidity (over 70%) like swimming pools. The
equipment should only be stored in surroundings with an ambient temperature
between 5°C and 45°C.
+ The training room should be well ventilated during training and not be exposed to
any draughts.
+ Always keep the power cable away from hot surfaces and grounds and make sure
that the cable is not stuck somewhere or becomes a „trip hazard“.
+ No objects of any type should be inserted into the openings of the equipment.
+ The equipment should be placed on a level and solid surface, any unevenness in
the floor should be leveled out.
8
RX9 Pro
+ A floor protective mat / equipment underlay can help to protect high-quality floor
coverings (parquet, laminate, cork, carpets) from dents and sweat and can help to
level out slight unevenness.
+ Choose a location in which to place the equipment such that there is enough free
space/clearance to the front, the rear and to the sides of the equipment. Make
sure that you leave at least 30 cm on each side of the equipment and at least 15
cm in front of and behind the equipment as a training zone. This is the minimum
required area in order to safely use the equipment.
The recommended free zone around the equipment should be at least 60 cm on
each side and 45 cm in front of and behind the equipment.
Furthermore, the equipment should not be set up in main entrances or on escape
routes.
2 ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS, MAINTENANCE AND CARE
2.1 General instructions
+ Please check if all parts and tools belonging to the equipment are included in the
delivery and if there is any transport damage. If there are any complaints, please
contact your contract partner directly.
+ Some of the nuts and bolts to be used in assembly are already pre-mounted in
order to make set-up as easy as possible.
+ The equipment must be assembled by adults. In case of doubt, ask for assistance
from another person with technical skills.
+ Keep children away from the equipment during assembly, because small parts are
included in the delivery and may be swallowed.
+ Make sure that you have enough space (at least 1.50 m) in every direction during
assembly.
9
+ Do not leave any tools and packaging materials like plastic sheeting laying around
to avoid danger of suffocation for children.
+ Assemble the equipment on an underlay mat or on the cardboard packaging in
order to avoid damage to the equipment and to the floor (scratches).
+ Before starting assembly, all individual parts should be placed on the floor next to
each other.
+ Read the assembly instructions carefully and assemble the equipment according
to the illustrations. Proceed carefully and cautiously.
+ First loosen all parts and check for their correct fitting. Then tighten the screws
using a tool.
+ Modifications to the design or improper repairs may pose a hazard to the user and
should not be carried out. The product warranty may be void as a result.
+ Only authorized service technicians are permitted to carry out all servicing and/or
repairs – it excludes maintenance and care.
+ Damaged or worn components may impair your safety and the lifespan of
the equipment. You should therefore immediately replace damaged or worn
components. Please contact your contract partner in such a case. The equipment
should no longer be used until it has been repaired. When needed, only use
original Taurus spare parts.
+ Check the tightness of all screw connections once a month.
+ In order to be able to guarantee the constructively defined safety level of this
equipment, we recommend having the equipment regularly maintained (at least
once a year) by specialists (service technicians of your contract partner).
+ The equipment may be cleaned of dust, dirt and sweat using a damp cloth. The
use of solvents should be strictly avoided. Also, make sure that no liquids (e. g.
sweat) get into the openings of the equipment (e. g. console).
+ It is recommended to have a safety check before each training session and to examine
the equipment for wear or damage. If you determine damaged or defective parts,
the equipment should not be used until it is repaired. Please contact the contract
partner for the repair.
+ Manufacturer note: The pull strap is equipped with a return spring so that the
pull strap is automatically wound up again. The return spring is equipped with the
lowest possible power. The reason for the light return spring is to give the user a
better training effect for the rear thigh muscles. These muscles are stressed when
the user moves the seat forward. If the return power is strong, the person using the
equipment would be pulled.

2.2 Faults and troubleshooting
PROBLEM “NO PULSE” / heart rate detected
SOLUTION
1) If your skin is too dry, your chest strap cannot detect the electrical impulse from
your heart rate. Moisten the sensors of the chest strap slightly in order to improve the
contact. For longer units, like a marathon, we recommend using contact gel for the
chest strap.
2) Make sure that you use a compatible analog chest strap with a frequency of 5 kHz.
3) Change the batteries in your chest strap even if the chest strap is new.
4) If you are using a 5 kHz frequency chest strap, there may be interfering signals.
Move your rowing machine to another place and, if applicable, remove all electrical
devices out of the surrounding area. Then check the heart rate signal again.
5) Check if your chest strap is working correctly. Test it on a different equipment (on
site by the contract partner, local health club, etc.).
6) Contact your contract partner in order to confirm the compatibility of your chest
strap.
PROBLEM LCD blurs - divided LCD - software error, etc.
SOLUTION
1) Computer reset: Press the RESET button for a few seconds.
2) Restart the computer: Disrupt the power supply for about 15 seconds.
3) Reconnect all cable plug connections, see assembly instructions.
3) Ask for replacement console and install it.
FAQ – FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: Chest strap - does my old chest strap work with the rowing machine?
A1: 5 kHz chest strap = mostly - provided that your computer is 5 kHz compatible. A2:
Digital chest strap (2.4 GHz) = no - digital chest straps are coded and normally only
compatible with one equipment.
Q: How does the computer determine and calculate the distance (e. g. meters) and
speed (e. g. time/500m)?
A: Distance - This rowing machine has two sensors on the pull strap, Sensor A and
Sensor B. Thus, the computer can determine if the strap moves backwards (stroke
pull) or forwards (release of a stroke). The computer measures the rotations per stroke,
combined with a factor for the resistance level, a higher resistance results in more
meters. The speed is calculated from this combined with the time factor.

With these interval programs, intense training phases alternate with short recovery
phases. It is scientifically proven that interval training burns more calories than cardio
training with consistent intensity. You have the possibility to choose between two
interval methods:
Interval distance program = stress distance in meters + individually definable recovery
phase in seconds
Interval time program = stress time in seconds + individually definable recovery phase

4.3.4 60%, 75%, 90 % heart rate program
The heart rate program allows you to control the load through your heart rate. The
rowing machine resistance here is set automatically so that you always train with
your selected heart rate. Every 30 seconds, the computer compares your pulse with
the selection and adjusts the resistance correspondingly. The percentage numbers
indicate the value % of the maximum heart rate. The rule of thumb for the calculation
of the maximum heart rate is:
HRmax = 220 - age
This program requires a pulse signal from a compatible chest strap.
These three % heart rate programs work with the data from the selected user in order
to better calculate your performance data. Thus, enter a user when possible.
NOTE: During your workout, you cannot adjust % HR or the resistance levels.
In order to determine the optimal training pulse for your goals, continue to read Chapter
5.1 of these instructions. However, we recommend initially starting your training at an
easy level. Begin training at 60 % and increase it with your progress.

BMR: The Basal Metabolic Rate indicates the minimum required number of calories to
supply a human in a rest state. This calorie amount (in kcal) would be consumed by the
body during a day of rest.
If you count the calories from your food every day, subtract the BMR and the burnt
calories during training - the result is an approximate indicator of if you will lose or gain
weight.
If you would like to lose weight, you have to reduce your calorie intake.
Slowly reduce your calorie intake over two to three weeks so that your metabolism can
adjust. Never reduce your daily calorie intake below you BMR.
TDEE: The total daily intake is an estimate of your daily intake of calories. We recommend
lowering your calorie intake moderately. Keep your calorie intake about half way
between your BMR and TDEE.

5 WORKOUT INSTRUCTIONS
5.1 Heart-rate measuring
Telemetric heart rate measuring
This rowing machine is already equipped with a heart rate receiver as standard. Using
a chest strap makes it possible for you to have a wireless heart rate measuring. This
optimal and ECG-precise type of measuring reads the heart rate directly from the skin
through a transmitting chest strap. The chest strap then sends the impulse to the
receiver integrated in the console.
Positioning the chest strap and moistening the electrodes:
Place the belt directly below the chest, while the transmitter should be placed on the
middle of the chest. The chest strap should sit comfortably, but not too loose. If the
belt is too loose, the contact to the electrodes may be disrupted or the belt may slip
while exercising. The transmitter turns on automatically once it is put on. In order to
allow for a precise measuring, you should moisten the rubber electrodes. This is best
done with a special chest strap contact gel, which is also used for ultrasound scans.
Note:
If you have not been active in doing sports for a longer period of time, you should
first go to your physician in order to discuss your training with them. You should also
contact your physician in advance in the event of heart problems, high/low blood
pressure and obesity.
Training with heart rate orientation
Heart rate orientation guarantees an extremely effective and healthy training. Through
your age and the following table, you can quickly and easily read and determine the
optimal pulse for your training. An acoustic alarm will sound if your heart rate exceeds
the set target heart rate. Which target heart rate is important for which training goal
can be found out in the following.
Fat burning (weight management): The main goal here is to burn deposits of fat. In
order to achieve this training goal, a low training intensity (approximately 55% of the
maximum heart rate) and a longer training period are required.
Cardiovascular training (cardio training): The primary goal is to increase endurance
and fitness through an improved provision of oxygen through the cardiovascular
system. In order to achieve this training goal, medium intensity (approximately 75%
46
RX9 Pro
of the maximum heart rate) with a medium training period is required.
Anaerobic (maximum) load training: The main goal of maximum load training is to
improve recovery after short, intense loads in order to be able to quickly return to the
aerobic zone. In order to achieve this training goal, a high intensity (approximately
90% of the maximum heart rate) with short, intense load is required, which is followed
by a recovery phase in order to prevent muscle fatigue.
Example:
For a 45-year-old man or woman, the maximum heart rate is 175 (220 - 45 = 175).
• The fat burning target zone (55%) is at approximately 96 beats/min.
= (220 - age) x 0.55.
• The cardio target zone (75%) is at approximately 131 beats/min.
= (220 - age) x 0.75.
• The maximum heart rate for an anaerobic load training (90%) is at ­approximately
157 beats/min. = (220 - age) x 0.9.

Do not completely extend
Wrong
At the end of the movement, the user completely
stretches the leg and knee.
Right
Keep your knee slightly bent at all times even at
the end of the movement instead of stretching
it completely.
Leaning too far forward
Wrong
The body is bent too far forward. The shins are
no longer vertical. The head and shoulders are
facing the feet. The body is therefore in a weak
position to execute the movement.
Right
The shins are vertical. The body is pressed against
the legs, the arms are completely stretched out
in front and the body is slight bent forward. This
position should be pleasant.
49
Rowing with bent arms
Wrong
The user begins the movement with the arms
instead of first pressing with the legs.
Right
The user begins by stretching out the legs,
relaxing the back and stretching the arms.
Bent wrists
Wrong
The user bents the wrists during the movement.
Right
Always execute the rowing movement with
straight wrists.

5.3 10 tips for effective rowing training
1. Set goals
What would you like to achieve with your training? Weight regulation, improved endurance, prevent risk of disease, more mobility, cardiovascular training, etc. In order
to achieve your long-term training goal, set individual partial goals, e. g., weekly or
monthly goals.
2. Concentration on training
Try to only dedicate yourself to your training unit and do not be distracted.
3. Position yourself correctly while exercising
When you execute the movement, your upper body should lean forward slightly and
your back should be straight. Avoid evasive movements in the hip or back area.
4. Correct breathing / appropriate resistance level
Do not overexert yourself physically and mentally by starting with resistance levels
that are too high. Start slowly and increase the resistance steadily. Aim for regular and
calm breathing.
5. Keep yourself properly hydrated
Drink, drink, drink! Have a drinking bottle close by during your workout.
6. Sufficient recovery phases
Allow your body and your muscles enough time to recover after your workout. Only a
relaxed muscle will be fully operational again.
7. Choose a diversified program
Switch your focus between different muscle groups and different levels of intensity
during your workout.
8. Creating the right workout
Every training session should have a warm-up phase, a cool-down phase and a targeted stretching. It increases physical and mental performance and prevents injuries
and sore muscles.
9. Workout journal
Keep a record of your training sessions. Note the date, resting pulse, active pulse, recovery pulse, resistance level, time, distance, calories burnt and fitness level.
51
10. Reward yourself
Do something good for you and your body after training or after achieving a partial
goal. Go to the sauna or a swimming pool. Mix a protein shake or enjoy a delicious
salad.
5.4 Designing a workout
We recommend two or three workouts per week. Warm up for about five minutes before starting each workout. Finish the workout with a cool-down and targeted stretching.
Warm-up approx. five minutes Dynamic movement of large muscle groups at a low intensity. Core body temperature increases and the metabolic process is speeded up.
