IMPORTANT STEPS
Before beginning
Before using this product, please
consult your personal physician for
a complete physical examination.
Frequent and strenuous exercise
should be approved by your doctor.
If any discomfort should result from
your use of this product, stop
exercising and consult your doctor.
Proper usage of this product is
essential. Please read your manual
carefully before exercising.
How you begin your exercise
program depends on your physical
condition. If you have been inactive
for several years, or are severely
overweight, you must start slowly
and increase your time gradually, a
few minutes per week.
Please keep all children away from
the equipment during use and when
equipment is unattended.
Always wear appropriate clothing,
including athletic shoes, when
exercising. Do not wear loose
clothing that could become caught
during exercising.
Make sure that all bolts and nuts are
tightened when equipment is in use.
Periodic maintenance is required on
all exercise equipment to keep it in
good condition.
Initially you may be able to exercise
only for a few minutes in your target
zone. However, your aerobic fitness
will improve over the next six to eight
weeks. Don’t be discouraged if it
takes longer. It’s important to work
at your own pace. Ultimately, you’ll
be able to exercise continuously for
30 minutes. And the better your
aerobic fitness, the harder you will
have to work to stay in your target
zone. But remember these essentials:
>Contact your physician before
starting a workout or training
program. Have your doctor review
your training and diet programs to
advise you of a workout routine you
should adopt.
>Begin your training program slowly
with realistic goals that have been
set by you and your doctor.
>Supplement your program with
some type of aerobic exercise such
as walking, jogging, swimming,
dancing and/or bicycling.

Monitor your pulse frequently. If you
do not have an electronic heart rate
monitor, have your physician show
you the proper way to manually check
your pulse by using your wrist or
neck. Establish your target heart rate
based on your age and
condition.
>Drink plenty of fluids during the
course of your routine. You must
replace the water content lost from
excessive exercising to avoid
dehydration. Avoid drinking large
amounts of cold liquids. Fluids should
be at room temperature when
consumed.
important steps
Warning
To make sure your heart is beating
in its target zone, you’ll need to know
how to monitor your heart rate. The
easiest way is to feel the pulse in
the carotid artery on either side of
your neck, between the windpipe
and the large neck muscles. Count
PULSE IN BEATS PER MINUTE
EXERCISING IN YOUR TARGET ZONE
target heart rate
Finding your pulse
the number of beats in ten seconds,
then multiply by six. This gives you
the number of beats per minute.
How fast should your heart beat
during aerobic exercise? Fast
enough to reach and stay in its
“target zone,” a range of beats per
minute that is largely determined by
your age and physical condition. To
determine your target zone, consult
the chart we have provided.

AGE IN YEARS
Aerobic exercise is any
sustained activity that sends oxygen
to your muscles via your heart and
lungs. It will improve the fitness of
your lungs and heart: your body’s
most important muscle. Aerobic
fitness is promoted by any activity
that uses your large muscle groups
- arms, legs or buttocks, for example.
Your heart beats quickly and you

breath deeply. An aerobic exercise
should be part of your entire exercise
routine.

WARM UP AND COOL DOWN
stretching routine
Inner Thigh Stretch
A successful exercise program
consists of a warm-up, aerobic
exercise, and a cool-down. Do the
entire program at least two and
preferably three times a week, resting
for a day between workouts. After
several months, you can increase
your workouts to four or five times
per week.
Warming up is an important part of
your workout, and should begin every
session. It prepares your body for
more strenuous exercise by heating
up and stretching out your muscles,
increasing your circulation and pulse
rate, and delivering more oxygen to
your muscles. At the end of your
workout, repeat these exercises to
reduce sore muscle problems. We
suggest the following warm-up and
cool-down exercises:
Sit with the soles of your feet together
with your knees pointing outward. Pull
your feet as close into your groin as
possible. Gently push your knees
towards the floor. Hold for 15 counts.
Hamstring Stretch
Sit with your right leg extended. Rest the sole
of your left foot against your right inner thigh.
Stretch toward your toe as far as possible.
Hold for 15 counts. Relax and then repeat
with left leg extended.
Head Roll
Rotate your head to the right for one count,
feeling the stretch up the left side of your
neck. Next, rotate your head back for one
count, stretching your chin to the ceiling
and letting your mouth open. Rotate your
head to the left for one count, and finally,
drop your head to your chest for one count.

Calf-Achilles Stretch
Lean against a wall with your left leg in
front of the right and your arms forward.
Keep your right leg straight and the left
foot on the floor; then bend the left leg
and lean forward by moving your hips
toward the wall. Hold, then repeat on
the other side for 15 counts.
Side Stretch
Open your arms to the side and continue
lifting them until they are over your head.
Reach your right arm as far upward
toward the ceiling as you can for one
count. Feel the stretch up your right side.
Repeat this action with your left arm.

Toe Touch
Slowly bend forward from
your waist, letting your back
and shoulders relax as you
stretch toward your toes.
Reach down as far as you can
and hold for 15 counts.
