KDJUSTMENT
AND ()PERATION"
EXERCISING ON THE CARDIO FIT
Sit on the seat, place your feet on the pedals and hold the handlebar. To add variety to your exercise, you can
hold the top, sides or bottom of the handlebar, place your hands close together or far apart, or hold the handlebar
with an overhand or underhand grip.
To begin exercising, pull the handlebar towards your waist while pushing the pedals away with your legs. Return
to the starting position. This completes one repetition. Repeat, moving with a smooth, continuous motion. For the
best results, move through the full range of motion, maintain a steady pace, and keep your back straight.
LOWER BODY EXERCISE
To focus on the muscles of the lower body, rest your hands
on the Indicated bar as you exercise.
To focus on the calf muscles, point your toes as you push
the pedals away. As you return to the starling position, raise
your toes and rotate your heels downward. CAUTION: To
avoid Injury, keep you feet firmly on the pedals to
prevent them from slipping.
UPPER BODY EXERCISE
To focus on the muscles of the upper body, rest your feet on
the foot pegs rather than the pedals as you exercise.
Foot Peg
ABDOMINAL
EXERCISE
To exercise your abdominal muscles, keep your arms straight and bend back at the waist as you exercise.
Remember to keep your back straight.
RESISTANCE ADJUSTMENT

CARDIO FIT can be changed. There are 9 resistance levels:
level 1 is the easiest, and level 9 is the most difficult. To
change the resistance, turn the resistance adjustment collar
on the Resistance Cylinder (9). The arrow on the Resistance
Cylinder will show which resistance level you have selected.
CAUTION: The Resistance Cylinder becomes very hot
during use. Allow the Resistance Cylinder to cool before
touching It. When adjusting the resistance, touch only

zero and continue counting. (Monitor 2 above will display up to 9,999 repetitions.)
• 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.

MAINTENANCE
AND "I ROUBLE-SHOOTING
Inspect and tighten all parts of the CARDIO FIT at least every three months. Keep the monitor out of direct
sunlight or the LCD display may be damaged. The monitor can be cleaned using a soft, dry cloth. Do not allow
liquid to come in contact with the monitor. Remove the batteries when storing the CARDIO FIT.
REPLACING THE BA'I-rERIES
If the display of the Monitor (1) becomes dim, the two L1154
watch batteries should be replaced. Remove the #8 x 1/2"
Screw (16) from the back of the Monitor. Remove the two
screws from the back cover of the Monitor and remove the
back cover. Push the two old batteries out of the clips, and
insert two new batteries.
Reattach the back cove_,and reattach the Monitor (1) to the
Frame (6). Make sure that the wire on the Monitor is plugged
into the sensor wire; Insert any excess wire into the Frame.
Make sure not to pinch the wire between the Frame and the
Monitor.
ADJUSTING THE MAGNET AND REED SWITCH
If the monitor does not function properly, the Magnet (27) and
Reed Switch (15) should be checked. Pivot the Pedal Frame
(7) until the Magnet is aligned with the Reed Switch. Loosen
the #8 x 3/4" Screw (33) and adjust the position of the Reed
Switch so that there is a 1/8" gap between the Magnet and
the Reed Switch. Retighten the Screw.
LUBRICATING
THE CARDIO FIT
The ends of the Unk Arms (4) should be oiled every six
months. Apply a few drops of light multi-purpose oil between
the Link Arms and the dome caps in the indicated locations.

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.
WARNING: Before beginning this or any exercise
program, consult your physlclan. Thls Is especially
Important for persons over the-age of 35 or
persons with pre-existing health problems.
EXERCISE INTENSITY
To maximize the benefits of exercising, it is Important
t_ ex_,rcise wi;h the proper tntens}ty The prFJper
intensity level can be found by using your heart rate as
a guide. For effective aerobic exercise, your heart rate
should be maintained at a level between 70% end 85%
of your maximum heart rate as you exercise. This is
known as your training zone.
You can find your training zone in the table below.
Training zones are listed for both unconditioned and
conditioned persons according to age.

(BEATS/MIN)
During the first few months of your exemise program,
keep your heart rate near the low end of your training
zone as you exercise. After a few months, your heart
rate can be increased gradually until it is near the middle of your training zone as you exercise.
To measure
your heart rate,
stop exercising
and place two
fingers on your
wrist. Take a
six-se:ond
heartbeat
,/
count, and
multiplythe
result by 10 to
find your heart rate. For example, if your six-second
heartbeat count is 14, your he.art rate is 140 beats per
minute. (A six-second count is used because your
heart rate will drop rapidly when you stop exercising.)
Adjust the intensity of your exercise unt!l your heart
rate is at the proper level.
WORKOUT GUIDELINES
Each workout should consist of three basic pads_ a
warm-up, 20 to 30 minutes of training zone exercise,
and a cool-down. Warming up prepares the body for
exercise by increasing circulation, delivering more oxygen to the muscles and raising the body temperature.
Begin each workout with 5 to 10 minutes of stretching
and light exercise to warm up. Then, increase the
intensity of your exercise to raise your heart rate to
your training zone for 20 to 30 minutes. Breathe regularly and deeply as you exercise--never hold yourbreath. Finish each workout with 5 to 10 minutes of
stretching to cool down. This will increase the flexibility
of the muscles, and reduce soreness and other postexercise problems.
To maintain or improve your condition, complete three
workouts each week, with at least one day of rest
between workouts. After a few months of regular
exercise, you may complete upto five workouts each
week, if desired. The key to success is to make
exercise a regular and enjoyable part of your everyday
life.
