OPERATION
Using Your Schwinn® Elliptical Trainer Model 438
Before operating your Schwinn® 438 elliptical trainer, read the
warnings listed on pages 17 and 18 of this manual.
CONSULT YOUR PHYSICIAN BEFORE STARTING
ANY EXERCISE PROGRAM. He or she can help establish
the exercise frequency, intensity, (including determining your
maximum and minimum heart rate and target heart rate zones),
and the exercise time appropriate for your particular age and
condition.
If you have not been exercising or are pregnant or have a
heart condition or any physical limitation, failure to consult
your physician before engaging in physical exercise, such as
using this elliptical trainer, could result in serious injury or
death. If while using this elliptical trainer you have any pain
or tightness in your chest, an irregular heart beat, shortness of
breath, feel faint, or have any discomfort, STOP and consult
your physician immediately.
Getting Started
Plug the AC adapter into the back of the console.
To start using your Schwinn® elliptical trainer, stand on the
foot pedals, with the front of your shoes close to the front
edge of the foot platform. Place your hands at a comfortable
position on the upper body arms. Move your highest foot
forward, and follow the natural path of the machine.
Start on a level that is comfortable to familiarize yourself with
the machine. Once you are comfortable, start adjusting the
level to achieve the desired workout.
■ Full Body/Lower Body
You can use your Schwinn® elliptical trainer for a complete
body workout or lower body workout only. If you choose
not to use your arms, place them on the stationary handles
in front of you. Remember, the more muscles you use, the
more calories you burn.
■ Forward/Reverse
You can use your Schwinn® 438 elliptical trainer in the
forward and reverse directions to vary the muscles you work
out. This will also vary your workout, helping you to stay
20
motivated. To change directions, simply slow the pedals
down until they stop, and switch directions.
OPERATION
■ Resistance Control
You can change the resistance level in your Schwinn® 438
elliptical trainer at any time during your workout. Adjusting
your level will allow you to increase or decrease your
intensity level. Use the console to control the resistance.
Overview of the Schwinn® 438 Elliptical Computer
Your Schwinn® 438 elliptical trainer is equipped with a
versatile computer console, which includes:
• Backlit LCD
• LED and scrolling alpha-numeric prompts
• 3 speed, air-flow direction adjustable fan
• Magazine rack
• Four user settings
• Quick Start
• One manual program
• Ten profile programs
• Three heart rate control programs
• Four user settings
• Eight custom user-defined programs (two for each of the
four user settings)
• Time trial program
• Fitness test
• Calorie goal
• BMI (Body Mass Index)
• Recovery mode
• Results mode
• Fitness summary
• Switchable English/metric capability
• Auto shut-off
This computer provides you with important information about
your workout as well as controls the resistance levels. The
following sections describe how to utilize the many functions
this computer provides. Keep this manual accessible for future
reference, as you will want to experiment with the various
21
OPERATION
functions while you become familiar with your Schwinn® 438
elliptical trainer.
Computer Console Design
Before we discuss using the specific functions of the computer,
let’s get familiar with the display, the different features, and
various buttons located on the console.
LCD Display
The large LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) screen located in the
center of the console is your information center. This display
is divided into sections that provide information about your
workout and any preset information you may have input into
the computer.
The display provides a large main window that indicates the:
• PROGRAM selection and
• RESISTANCE LEVEL.
The smaller windows across the bottom show:
• INTERVAL TIME and TIME,
22
• RPM and WATTS, DISTANCE, and
• HEART (PULSE) RATE.
OPERATION
The next larger window on the right side of the display shows:
• SPEED and CALORIES,
• ENGLISH or METRIC operating mode, and
• the motion indicator relative to your SPEED.
The icon also indicates that the program is running. The large
main area of the display shows the program profile you are
using. Within this profile are “bricks,” or rectangles, that are
stacked vertically and indicate the relative resistance level and
course profile. The computer is capable of offering 16 different
levels of resistance. One “brick” represents the lowest level,
and eight “bricks” represent the highest level. You can view
your exercise level by referencing the level numbers displayed
on the left and right side of the “brick” display. Levels 1, 3, 5,
7, 9, 11, 13, and 15 display on the left side and levels 2, 4, 6,
8, 10, 12, 14, and 16 display on the right. The highest value
displayed is the resistance level at which you are working out.
In addition, you will notice there are 12 columns of these
“bricks” lined up horizontally across the bottom of the display
center. Each profile program is 50 columns or “intervals” long,
so each of these columns or “intervals” represents one-fiftieth
of your workout time. For example, if you enter a workout
time of 25 minutes, each column or “interval” time will last
a duration of 30 seconds. Since the display shows the first 12
columns of your workout program as you progress through
the workout, the program will scroll to the left. The flashing
“bricks” on the left-most column let you know where you
are in your workout, and other columns to the right show the
upcoming course profile.
The manual, heart rate control, custom, and time trial
programs will display in the 12-interval columns, as viewed
on the LCD screen, and do not scroll as you advance through
the workout.
■ Alphanumeric Display
Within the LCD display the computer features a “message
center” that prompts you to input specific data and values
to make the elliptical trainer easy to operate and gets you to
your workout quickly.
23
Using the Schwinn® 438 Computer
OPERATION
■ LCD Display Descriptions
TIME
Displays the workout time. The
time will count down from the
time you entered when beginning
the program and shows the time
remaining for your workout. The
time starts to count up once it
reaches zero.
INTERVAL TIME
Displays the interval time. The
interval time will count down,
showing the time remaining before
the program moves to the next
column.
RPM
Displays the current pedal
revolutions per minute (rpm).
WATTS
Displays the current power you
are producing at a given resistance
level. A watt is a measure of
workload similar to horsepower
(in fact, one horsepower is equal to
746 watts).
DISTANCE
Displays the estimated distance
traveled (miles or kilometers).
PULSE
Displays your current heart rate
beats per minute (bpm). You must
grip each heart rate contact sensor
pod to enable the computer to
detect your heart rate.
SPEED
Displays the estimated speed (miles
or kilometers per hour).
CALORIES
Displays the estimated calories you
have burned during the exercise.

■ Grip Heart Rate
This Schwinn® elliptical trainer is equipped with grip heart
rate sensors located on the handlebars. You must contact
these sensors with both hands so that the computer can
detect your pulse. The computer uses information detected
by the grip heart rate sensors for many of the software
features. Make sure you are griping the pods, and look
for the flashing “heart” icon and pulse rate located on the
lower right portion of the LCD display (to the left of the
motion indicator), indicating that a pulse signal is being
received. This is extremely important for the Heart Rate
26
OPERATION
Control and Fitness Test programs. The computer must
receive a steady, consistent signal for the duration of these
programs to operate correctly. If there is no display, please
see “IMPORTANT Things You Should Know Before
Exercising” on page 32 for more information.
Software Features
■ Quick Start
This is a “one-touch” way of starting the Manual program.
■ Manual Mode
You manually adjust the resistance level during your
workout to make the program easier or more challenging.
■ Ten Profile Programs
The computer offers a variety of fun and exciting profile
programs to keep you motivated and on track to achieving
your fitness goals:
• Profile Program 1 Ride in the Park
• Profile Program 2 Rolling Hills
• Profile Program 3 Plateau
• Profile Program 4 Speed Intervals
• Profile Program 5 Strength Intervals
• Profile Program 6 Pyramid Intervals
• Profile Program 7 Ramp Interval 1
• Profile Program 8 Ramp Interval 2
• Profile Program 9 Pikes Peak
• Profile Program 10 Cross-Training
■ Three Heart Rate Control (H.R.C.) Programs
These programs enable you to workout in three different
heart rate zones: 60% to 70% of maximum heart rate,
70% to 80% of maximum heart rate, and 80% to 90% of
maximum heart rate. The zones are calculated based upon
your age and the percent of maximum heart rate you select
to exercise in.
Please note: You must either use the chest strap or grip the
heart rate sensor pods located on the handlebars in order
for the computer to read your pulse and for the Heart Rate
Control programs to work effectively.
27
OPERATION
60%–70% of maximum heart rate—General Fitness Zone—
Fat Burning Exercise within this zone improves general
fitness, begins to develop endurance, and contributes greatly
to weight control and management by utilizing mostly fat
calories for energy.
70%–80% of maximum heart rate—Aerobic Workout
Zone—Endurance Training Exercise within this zone
increases overall fitness, improves cardiovascular efficiency
and endurance.
80%–90% of maximum heart rate—Anaerobic Workout
Zone—Performance Training Exercise within this zone
maximizes fitness and athletic performance. Important: We
strongly recommend you consult with your physician before
exercising in this zone.
■ Four User Settings
Each user setting allows the you to set up and store into the
computer memory your name, weight, height, age, and sex.
Each user setting allows for two different workout profiles,
which you can customize.
■ Time Trial
This program enables you to workout against a “pacer” to
determine how long it takes you to cover a preset distance.
You preset the speed of the “pacer” as the baseline of your
workout, and race to the end of the preset distance. At the
end of the Time Trial, the computer displays the watts,
distance, and speed you achieved.
■ Fitness Test
The Fitness Test is one of the best ways to measure
improvements in your physical fitness level. The test
measures your fitness by comparing your power output (in
watts) to your heart rate. In general, as you become “more
fit,” you will produce more power (watts) at a given heart
rate. As the test starts, the power (watts) slowly increases.
This means you will work harder and, as a result, your heart
rate increases. The watts continue to increase automatically
until your heart rate reaches the “test zone.” This zone
is individually computed to be near 75 percent of your
maximum heart rate. When you reach the “test zone” the
elliptical holds the watts steady for three minutes. This
is to allow you to reach a steady state (where your heart
rate has become basically steady). At the end of the three
28
OPERATION
minutes, the computer measures your heart rate, and the
power (watts). These numbers, along with information about
your age and weight, are put into a formula and produce a
“Fitness Score.”
Note: The Fitness Test is an excellent way to measure
changes in your own fitness level. It is not designed to be
used to compare one person’s score to another person’s
score. This is because the test protocol only estimates your
“Maximum Heart Rate.”
■ Calorie Goal
The Calorie Goal feature lets you select an amount of
calories you would like to burn during your workout.
When selecting CALORIE GOAL, use the UP or DOWN
buttons to select the amount of calories you wish to burn
from 10–990. Each increment will change the calories by
ten. Confirm your selected value by pressing the ENTER
button.
The console will prompt you to choose a profile program.
Use the UP or DOWN buttons to select a profile program,
and press the ENTER button to confirm your selection.
During the program, the calorie display will count down
from the number of calories you entered to zero.
■ Body Mass Index (BMI) Measurement
BMI is a useful tool that shows the relationship between
weight and height associated with body fat and health risk.
The table below gives a general rating and BMI score1:
BMI
Underweight
Below 18.5
Normal
18.5–24.9
Overweight
25.0–29.9
Obesity
30.0 and above
There are limitations, however. It may overestimate body
fat in athletes and others who have a muscular build. It may
also underestimate body fat in older persons and others who
have lost muscle mass.
1. SOURCE: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Atlanta, GA. The CDC is an agency of the federal Department of
Health and Human Services.
29
OPERATION
When choosing the BMI program you will be prompted
to enter your height and weight, and the computer will
calculate and display your Body Mass Index. The console
will display “IDEAL BMI RANGE.” The ideal or normal
range is 18.5–24.9. The console will also display your ideal
weight range for your height.
CONSULT YOUR PHYSICIAN FOR MORE
INFORMATION ABOUT BMI AND THE WEIGHT
THAT IS APPROPRIATE FOR YOU.
■ Recovery Test
Recovery Test shows how quickly your heart recovers from
an exercise state to a more restful state. Improved recovery
is an indicator of increasing fitness. For the console to
perform the Recovery Test, two things must happen. You
must press the RECOVERY button, and the console must
be displaying your heart rate. When both of these situations
occur, then the console will perform the Recovery Test.
The console will show “01:00 STOP,” and the time will
begin to count down. Stop exercising but continue to grip
the heart rate sensors. After five seconds, the display will
show “00:55 RELAX” and continue to count down to
00:00.
For the entire minute, the console will also show your heart
rate. You must grip the heart rate sensors for the duration of
the test. The display will continue to show “RELAX” and
your heart rate until the clock counts down to 00:00. The
console will then calculate your recovery score.
Recovery Score = Your heart rate at 1:00 (the beginning of
the test) minus your heart rate at 00:00 (the end of the test).
The display will show “SCORE (RECOVERY SCORE).”
This will remain on the display for five seconds, then you
can press RESULTS to view a summary of your workout
and end the program, or press START to resume working
out where you left off.
The higher the Recovery Test Score value, the quicker
your heart rate is returning to a more restful state, and is an
indication of improving fitness. By recording these values
over time you can see the trend toward better health!
When you press the RECOVERY button and there is no
heart rate signal or display, the console will show “NEED
30
OPERATION
HR,” and the HEART RATE icon on the display will blink.
This message will show for five seconds, then the program
will resume. You must see your heart rate on the display,
and then you must push the RECOVERY button again to
perform the test.
Helpful Tip: For a more relevant score, try to obtain a
steady heart rate for three minutes before pressing the
RECOVERY button. This will be easier to achieve and
obtain for best results in the Quick Start or Manual program
so that you can control level of resistance.
Please note: The RECOVERY button does not function
when you are in the BMI program.
■ Results Mode
When you complete a program, the Results mode will
automatically display and show your basic workout
statistics. Manually pressing the RESULTS button during
your workout will also end the program and display your
basic workout statistics. You cannot return to your workout
after pressing the RESULTS button.
To have the option of either ending your workout and seeing
your workout results or pausing your workout so you can
return to where you left off, perform the following steps:
To STOP or PAUSE the program:
1
Press the START/PAUSE button to pause your
workout. The display will show “PRESS RESULT
OR PRESS START.”
2
Press the RESULTS button to have the computer
show your workout results and end the program, or
press START/PAUSE to resume the program where
you left off.
In Results mode, the console will display:
“GREAT JOB”—This will hold for approximately three
seconds.
“YOUR RESULTS”—This will hold for approximately
three seconds.
The display will show the following workout results:

IMPORTANT Things You Should Know Before
Exercising
■ The values calculated or measured by the computer are for
exercise reference purposes only, NOT FOR MEDICAL
PURPOSES.
■ Pulse rate—The pulse rate will display after the system has
detected four stable pulse signals. Pulse rate is then updated
after receiving every two signals.
Please note: If your heart rate goes above 199, the “1” will
flash. So a heart rate of 224 will be displayed as “124”, and
the “1” will be flashing.
■ Pulse rate readout—While the grip heart rate feature is a
quick and convenient way to check your heart rate, it is
generally not as accurate as a wireless transmitter belt and is
subject to occasional misreadings and interference. You may
from time to time find inconsistencies with the heart rate
display on your display console.
There are many external factors that can affect the heart rate
display. Some factors that influence the reliability of the
heart rate signal include:
■ the environment where the equipment is used,
■ the physiology of the users themselves, and
■ Electro-Magnetic Interference (EMI) produced by such
items as televisions, computers, microwave ovens,
cellular and cordless telephones, and fluorescent lights.
By moving the product away from such items, you may be
able to avoid many heart rate display problems.
■ Resistance control—You can control the resistance of
your elliptical trainer by using the UP or DOWN buttons.
You increase the resistance by pressing the UP button or
32
OPERATION
decrease the resistance by pressing the DOWN button. You
will notice a slight lag in time while the electronic brake
adjusts to your input, so make sure to allow for this and
don’t over-compensate.
■ Sleep mode—The console will enter Sleep mode, and the
system will turn off automatically if there is no input for
approximately two minutes. Press any button to return
the computer to its pre-“sleep” state, or press and hold the
RESET button for two seconds to clear the computer.

Please note: You must either use the wireless chest strap or
grip the heart rate sensor pods located on the handlebars for
the computer to read your pulse and for the heart rate control
programs to work effectively.
Based on your age, the elliptical trainer will calculate a
maximum heart rate and the heart rate zones described below.
These rates are based on average fitness for persons your age.
You may be more or less fit, and your actual maximum heart
rate and zones may be correspondingly higher or lower. You
should therefore consult your physician for the maximum
heart rate that is right for you and the heart rate zones in which
you can safely exercise.

37
OPERATION
■ Changing Levels
You can only increase or decrease the resistance level by
pressing the UP or DOWN buttons when in the first interval
column, which is the warm-up column. This enables you to
set your starting warm-up level. A longer warm-up at lower
resistance can burn more calories than a shorter warm-up at
higher resistance. After the program exits the first interval
warm-up column, the UP and DOWN buttons become
inoperative, and the program automatically adjusts the
resistance to bring you into your selected zone.
The program is designed to slowly bring you up to your
selected heart rate workout zone, hold you within that zone
by reading your heart rate, and adjust the level of resistance
to keep your workout within that zone. The program then
slowly brings you down into a cool-down zone at the end of
the program by reducing the resistance level in the last two
columns.
As a precaution, if your heart rate is above your selected
heart rate zone and the resistance level is at the minimum
level for 30 seconds, the message “SLOW DOWN” will

FITNESS GUIDE

■ Exercise and Health
It is not a secret that lack of exercise is increasingly becoming a major health
issue. Obesity is on the rise, and being overweight can contribute to an increased
risk in heart attack, diabetes, high blood pressure and other life threatening
illnesses.
Most people do not get enough activity during the day to make up for the time
they spend at their desks, driving their cars or sitting in front of their televisions.
We have learned that exercising is not simply something we must do to look
good and have a great body. Exercise is a requirement for health, and overall
wellness, not to mention it can help you feel great!
The good news is that we are seeing more and more research that indicates
we don’t have to work out intensely to see the benefits. Sure, it is great if you
can workout for thirty to forty minutes at a time, five days a week. But it is not
essential. Shorter bouts of exercise can have a great effect (especially if you are
just starting out), and a little bit of exercise at a time is much better than none at
all.
And what is really exciting is that research indicates that whether you are young
or old, people who workout at light to moderate intensities may have an easier
time sticking to their exercise programs than those people who work out harder
and more often.
So, you do not need to be an athlete or a fitness ”die-hard” to benefit from
exercise… you just need to get started, work out at levels that are comfortable
and enjoyable to you and stick with it!
■ Your New Home Fitness Program
There are many great reasons why home exercise equipment has increased in
popularity over the years, but topping the list is convenience. For any fitness
program to be successful, it must be something you will stick to on a regular
basis. With home exercise equipment, you can roll out of bed, put on a pair
of sweats and start working out while the coffee is brewing. No getting in the
car and having to drive to the health club. No standing in line waiting for the
equipment to become available.
And there is the comfort and safety factor. Who wants to walk or run outside
when it is dark or is raining? Or try to ride a bike in the middle of heavy traffic?
With your home exercise equipment, you can exercise in the comfort and
security of your air-conditioned home.
Privacy and cleanliness are also important. Now you can exercise without
feeling rushed or that anyone is looking at you (which is great if you are
48
The biggest advantage, however, may simply be the time factor. With work
schedules ever-changing and busy family obligations, a home gym offers
the benefit of being able to work out when it is most convenient for you. No
classes to time your schedule around, or peak times to avoid. This is especially
convenient if you have children at home.
It couldn’t be easier!
Steps To Getting Started
Once you have made the commitment to start exercising at home, here are some
suggestions that may help you stay motivated.
■ The First Step Is the Most Difficult
Any new habit is difficult to establish at first, but it can be done. Be patient, and
plan to start slow and easy. Less is more when you are first starting out … don’t
overdo it!
■ Get a Physical Exam
If you have been inactive for several years or new to an exercise program,
be sure to consult with your doctor before beginning any exercise program.
Especially if you are over 30, have health problems or have a history of heart
disease in your family.
■ Plan for Your Home Fitness Center
Set aside an area or a room in your house or apartment that is exclusively for
fitness, and make sure that it is as comfortable as possible, so you’ll enjoy using
it. If you like music, watching television or looking outside while exercising,
make sure these things are accessible. Remember, if you don’t enjoy the space
you are exercising in, you won’t be motivated to continue your program.
■ Find an exercise buddy.
Research has shown that starting an exercise program with someone can
increase your chances of sticking to it. If you have a buddy that is also starting a
program, you can encourage, motivate and challenge each other.
■ Make fitness a part of your schedule.
Include it in your daily planner just as you would any other appointment. Plan
ahead for the week so that you can be sure to fit it in. Even if you are pressed for
time one day, a little exercise is better than none at all. Do what you can to fit it
in, even if you have less time than you hoped for.

embarrassed about carrying around a few extra pounds). No more sharing
sweaty equipment, or wondering if you will catch athlete’s foot in the health
club shower.
FITNESS GUIDE
■ Use Positive Affirmations
Affirmations will help you program your subconscious to accept new beliefs.
Saying to yourself a couple of times a day, “I am living a healthier lifestyle by
exercising several times per week at home,” can help you stay on track.
■ Set Goals
Setting goals can be helpful in keeping you motivated, but remember to keep
them realistic. Short-term and long-term goals can make this easier. How many
days do you want to exercise this week? How many workouts would you like to
have done in ninety days or a year?
Components of Fitness
Over the past 25 years, many people have focused on walking, running, cycling,
swimming and other types of aerobic activity as their only means of exercise.
However, we have learned that two other components of fitness are just as
important. These other two components are muscle strength and flexibility. So in
addition to having a strong heart and lungs, we also need to be able to pick up a
full bag of groceries and tie our shoes without having to sit down.
When developing your home fitness program, it is only appropriate that you
develop all three components in order to achieve balanced overall fitness. Let’s
take a look at all three components:
■ Cardiovascular Fitness
Training the heart and lungs to be stronger and deliver more oxygen throughout
your body with less effort. It can help reduce the risk of heart disease, and help
you manage your weight. It is the cornerstone of fitness, and can be achieved in
many ways such as walking or running on the treadmill or outdoors, climbing
stairs, cycling, or using a StairMaster® stepper or swimming in the pool or
ocean.
For many years, it was suggested that moderate level cardiovascular activity
(activities that make you sweat and breathe and a moderate pace) should be done
three to four days a week for 15–45 minutes at a time. It is now recommended
that you attempt to do some cardiovascular activity EVERY day, if possible.
The good news is that the cardiovascular activity does not need to be moderately
intensive everyday, nor does it need to be sustained for 15–45 minutes at a time.
So while it is ideal to challenge your heart and lungs by doing something like
a strong power walk every other day for 15–45 minutes, it is more important to
make sure you do at least a little bit of cardiovascular activity every day, even if
you don’t do it for very long or very intensely.
For example, you might try using your Schwinn® exercise bicycle for a
50
Whatever you do, just make sure you get your body moving, and your heart and
lungs pumping for some period of time every day.
■ Muscular strength
Training your muscles to remain strong using resistance such as dumbbells,
elastic tubing or your body weight. In the past decade, we have learned that
building or maintaining muscular strength is extremely important for a balanced
fitness program. And it is especially important as we get older.
We have learned through a variety of studies that those individuals who just
train aerobically (without strength training) do maintain their cardiovascular
endurance over the years, but they generally lose lean muscle mass as they
get older. However, those individuals who combine strength training and
cardiovascular training can maintain their lean body mass as they get older.
What this means is that if you just do cardiovascular activity, your body will
naturally lose muscle mass as you get older, and that means that you will
actually get “fatter” as you age, unless you incorporate strength training.
We have also learned that consistent strength training helps maintain bone
and muscle mass as we get older. For women, strength training (along with
cardiovascular training) may also protect against post-menopausal bone loss and
osteoporosis in their later years.
And strength training is not complicated. It is recommended that you do 8–12
repetitions of 8–10 major muscle groups at least two days a week. However, you
don’t have to do all these exercises at once. You can break them up into shorter
workouts throughout the day. For example, you can do just upper body exercises
in the morning, and your lower body exercises in the evening. Or, you can
alternate strength exercises with cardiovascular exercise (often known as circuit
training) by switching back and forth every couple of minutes.
The best part is you don’t need complicated equipment or fancy machines. You
can do everything you need to do with a simple pair of dumbbells, or you can try
the new Nautilus’® SelectTech™ dumbbells, which provide you a wide variety
of weight options in a revolutionary all-in-one dumbbell. You can use elastic
tubing, or simply do body weight exercises such as push-ups or lunges.
■ Flexibility
Being able to bend, reach, twist and turn with comfort and ease as we perform
daily tasks, play or exercise. It is perhaps the most ignored component of fitness,
51
FITNESS GUIDE
scheduled, moderate level workout for 20–30 minutes on Monday, Wednesday,
Friday and Sunday (see the intensity monitoring section for further details on
how hard to workout). On the other days, you might try going for a leisurely
stroll 10 minutes in the morning and in the evening (or whenever you can fit it
in).
FITNESS GUIDE
but certainly the easiest one to incorporate into our daily lives because it can be
done anywhere and almost at any time.
To maintain your flexibility, you simply need to stretch. This could be as simple
as reaching for your toes, or reaching overhead when you wake up in the
morning. Or maybe you enjoy it so much that you would be interested in trying
the Nautilus® yoga workout video. You can even incorporate stretching into your
strength training workouts by stretching the muscles you have used immediately
after you have completed your exercise set.
Like cardiovascular training, it is recommended that you stretch every day.
However, you do not need to create a formalized program. You can simply make
sure that you stretch your major muscle groups throughout the day. Make sure
you include your thighs, calves, hamstrings, back, chest, neck and shoulders.
Do what feels good, but also remember to mix it up. Don’t just do traditional
“reach and hold” stretches. Also, try gently moving through a range of motion
that is comfortable to you. For example, you don’t have to stretch your neck
simply by pulling on your head with your hand. You can also just rotate the neck
slowly around and look side to side.
Nutrition
Of course, every good health and fitness program will also include a good nutrition
component. Good nutrition is likely the most important factor in maintaining ideal
body weight and managing weight loss.
There are a variety of schools of thought regarding which nutrition program, diet
or eating plan is best. While we do not promote or endorse any particular one, here
are some things to consider that will help you get on the road to a healthy diet:
■ Understand Caloric Balance
How many calories you intake, and how many calories you burn off will
determine whether you will gain or lose weight day to day. It is impossible to
achieve weight loss without some sort of “caloric deficit” that can be obtained
through cutting calories, or burning off more than you take in. The wisest
approach is to do a little of both—cutting calories and exercising. It is the only
proven long-term weight management program that is successful. You should
ensure that you are consuming at least 1,200 calories per day total. A total
weight loss of no more than two pounds per week is recommended for long-term
weight management.
■ Eat a Variety of Foods
Regardless of your eating plan, you should be sure to include a variety of foods
in your diet, maximizing your intake of fruits and vegetables whenever possible.
Colorful meals and snacks that are divided amongst the four food groups will
ensure that you obtain the nutrients needed for your body to function at optimal
52
■ Drink Water
Our bodies are made up of over 70 percent water, and most of us don’t drink
enough. Carry water with you everywhere you go, and drink as often as you can.
This helps the body function at optimum levels, and can significantly help with
weight management.
■ Eat More Often and Be Mindful of Your Portions
Research has shown that it can be helpful to eat smaller meals more often
versus three larger meals a day if you are looking to promote healthy weight
maintenance or weight loss. And we have discovered that many portions we eat
are much larger than necessary, and can be laden with calories. So, try snacking
more and not eating so many large meals, and share your snacks or food with
others (or break your portions in half) to help manage your caloric intake.
Monitoring Your Intensity
When you are doing cardiovascular workouts, it is important that you work at the
appropriate intensities when you are first starting out. It is also important that you
workout at a variety of intensities after you have built a fitness base.
Research in recent years has indicated that one of the best ways to monitor your
cardiovascular intensity is to pay close attention to how you are feeling when
you workout. Most individuals can do a very good job of choosing the correct
intensities if they simply categorize how they feel into one of four intensity
“zones.”
These zones could be described the following ways:
Zone
Description
1
Easy
Warm-up
Cool-down
2
Challenging, but comfortable
Steady endurance pace
3
Challenging, and slightly uncomfortable
Race pace
Borderline out of breath
4
Breathless
Not maximum, but winded
Can’t keep the pace for very long
53
FITNESS GUIDE
levels. Any diet that focuses on just one food group source or processed foods
can be unhealthy in the long run, and should be avoided. Don’t focus too much
on any particular meal or snack, but rather on your overall intake of a variety of
different foods during any given day.
FITNESS GUIDE
When you are first starting out, you should exclusively work in the Zone 1 and
Zone 2 intensities. After a few weeks, you can occasionally incorporate Zone 3
and Zone 4 intensities for short periods of time. Remember, when you begin to
incorporate Zone 3 and Zone 4 intensities, you will find that you will likely have to
drop down to Zone 1 intensities shortly thereafter as brief recovery periods.
For variety, you can spend a little bit of time in each of the four Zones during one
workout, and then spend your time in just one Zone during the next workout.
Prenatal woman should always remain at Zone 1 and Zone 2 intensities, and
anyone unaware of their current medical condition should also avoid Zone 3 and
Zone 4 without prior clearance from their doctor.
These Zones can be translated into target heart rate numbers if your home fitness
product has a grip or telemetric heart rate counter. Research has shown the best
way to do this is not to establish heart rate numbers based upon age, but rather
based upon how you feel.
The following chart will allow you to log your heart rate numbers based upon how
you feel when working out. Simply log the heart rate numbers you find when you
feel you are working at each of the specific intensities.
A. Zone

As you get in better shape, the heart rate number you obtain for each zone will get
higher and higher, which means your heart is able to handle higher intensities. Or
54
you may find that your numbers don’t change, but you are able to stay in Zone 3
and Zone 4 longer than you used to.
Listening to your body, and using your heart rate numbers (when available) will
enable you to keep track of your intensity and see your progress as you train.
Beating the Dropout Odds
The Surgeon General’s Report on Physical Activity and Health summarizes a few
main points:
1.
Regular physical activity offers substantial improvements in health and
well-being for a majority of Americans.
2.
If you exercise regularly, you’ll reduce your risk of heart attack, cancer,
diabetes, high blood pressure, osteoporosis and even the common cold.
3.
Regular exercise, regardless of the intensity, can help you control stress,
sleep problems and depression.
The benefits of exercise and activity are AMAZING! And yet, only 22 percent of
Americans engage in exercise for 20 minutes a day. And even among individuals
who begin exercise programs, the dropout rate is about 50 percent.
So, how do you beat these odds? The answer appears to be in how your start and
maintain your exercise program as well as how you create a habit of exercise.
Why are you starting an exercise program? For most individuals, it is to lose
weight and look better, which are great reasons. However, since changes in your
body shape and size can be gradual, and won’t happen overnight, it is important to
focus on other benefits so that you will remain motivated.
Thrive on the energy that exercise gives you. Watch your health risks scores go
down. Pay attention to how much easier everyday activity is. Notice how much
better you are sleeping. These kind of additional benefits will continue to keep you
motivated if you make them just as important to you as weight loss.
Additionally, try not to view exercise as punishment. Look at it as an investment
in your health. If you don’t feel motivated to workout one day, think of something
that is appealing to you that is active, and change your workout. Try not to let your
workout become routine or mundane, and always remember that some exercise is
better than none at all. So, if you feel you are not motivated to continue, stop your
55
FITNESS GUIDE
Don’t get too attached to any specific number or target heart rate. If you train
properly, you will notice numbers that used to be difficult have now become easier.
You will also notice that if you are sick or over-tired, you may find that numbers
that usually feel fairly easy are one day much harder, and it is a good sign to take
a break. If you notice that numbers that are usually very challenging are one day
fairly easy, then it is a good time to push yourself.
FITNESS GUIDE
workout early, or skip a day. It just might be the thing you need to get you excited
about your next workout.
Possibly the most important thing is to keep progressing your exercise program
slowly. Big increases in time or intensity can set you up for injury, and cause you
to drop out. Unless you are a world-class athlete, there is no reason to workout at
world-class levels. Remember to give yourself some days off and get proper rest.
Finally, try to anticipate lapses. If you are traveling, or your schedule is becoming
busier, and you are fearful you may get off track, try planning ahead. For example,
book a hotel that has a workout facility or change up your workout so that you
keep your interest high and your boredom low. The bottom line is you must be
creative and innovative to keep up your fitness program. With some imagination
and planning, it is easy to do.
Exercise is one of life’s joys. It energizes you, helps you look and feel better and
puts you on the road to better health. Your home fitness equipment and gym is
worth its weight in gold. Congratulations on making the choice to get started!
