How to Use the CardioTrackª Heart Rate Monitor
3. Pull the transmitter away from your body a few
inches and locate the two electrode areas on the
inner side. The electrode areas are the two long,
grooved rectangles. Using saline solution such as
saliva or contact lens solution, wet both electrode
areas. Return the transmitter to a position against
your chest.
IMPORTANT: If a user has an implanted
medical device such as a pacemaker, the
user must check with his or her physician
prior to using the heart rate monitor.
The unique CardioTrack heart rate monitor is specially
designed for accuracy, comfort, and durability. To get
the best performance from the heart rate monitor,
please read the instructions below.
HEART RATE MONITOR TROUBLE-SHOOTING
The instructions on pages 11 to 17 of this userÕs
manual explain how the heart rate monitor is used
with the console. If the letters ÒPLSÓ appear in the
PULSE display, or if the displayed heart rate is
excessively high or low when the heart rate monitor is used, try the trouble-shooting steps below.
HOW TO PUT ON THE HEART RATE MONITOR
The heart rate monitor consists of two components:
the chest strap and the transmitter. Follow the steps
below to put on the heart rate monitor.
1. Make sure that the heart rate monitor is under your
clothing, against your skin, and as high under the
pectoral muscles or breasts as is comfortable.
Note: If the heart rate monitor does not function
when positioned as described, try moving it slightly
lower or higher on your chest.

Tabs
2. Make sure that the NordicTrack logo on the transmitter is facing forwards and is right-side-up.
Tab
Transmitter
3. Use saline solution such as saliva or contact lens
solution to wet the two electrode areas on the
transmitter. If heart rate readings do not appear
until you begin perspiring, re-wet the electrode areas.
Buckle
4. As you walk or run on the treadmill, position yourself near the center of the walking belt. For the
console to display heart rate readings, the user
must be within armÕs length of the console.
1. Refer to the inset drawing above. Insert the tab on
one end of the chest strap through the hole in one
end of the transmitter. Press the end of the transmitter under the buckle on the chest strap. The tab
should be flush with the front of the transmitter.
5. The heart rate monitor is designed to work with
people who have normal heart rhythms. Heart rate
reading problems may be caused by medical
conditions such as premature ventricular contractions (pvcs), tachycardia bursts, and arrhythmia.
2. Wrap the
heart rate
monitor
around your
chest and
attach the
NordicTrack
other end of
Logo
the chest
strap to the
transmitter.
Adjust the
length of the
chest strap, if necessary. The heart rate monitor
should be under your clothing, against your skin,
and as high under the pectoral muscles or breasts
as is comfortable. Make sure that the NordicTrack
logo is facing forward and is right-side-up.
6. The operation of the heart rate monitor can be
affected by magnetic interference caused by high
power lines or other sources. If it is suspected that
magnetic interference may be causing a problem,
try relocating the treadmill.
7. If the heart rate monitor still does not function
properly, test it by having another person try it.
8. The CR2032 battery may need to be replaced (see
page 9).
8
¥ If the heart rate monitor
does not function properly, the CR 2032 battery may need to be
replaced. To replace the

the transmitter. Insert a
coin into the slot in the
cover and turn the cover counterclockwise to the
ÒopenÓ position. Remove the cover.
HEART RATE MONITOR CARE AND MAINTENANCE
¥ Thoroughly dry the heart rate monitor after each
use. The heart rate monitor is activated when the
electrode areas are wetted and the heart rate monitor is put on; the heart rate monitor shuts off when it
is removed and the electrode areas are dried. If the
heart rate monitor is not dried after each use, it may
remain activated longer than necessary.
¥ Store the heart rate monitor in a warm, dry place.
Do not store the heart rate monitor in a plastic bag
or other container that may trap moisture.
Remove the old battery
and insert a new CR
2032 battery, making
sure that the battery is
turned so the writing is
on top. In addition, make
sure that the rubber gasket is in place in the
transmitter. Replace the
battery cover and turn it
to the closed position.
¥ Do not expose the heart rate monitor to direct
sunlight for extended periods of time. Do not expose
the heart rate monitor to temperatures above 122¡
Fahrenheit (50¡ Celsius) or below 14¡ Fahrenheit
(-10¡ Celsius).

Grounded Outlet Box
Adapter
Your treadmill, like any other type of sophisticated
electronic equipment, can be seriously damaged by
sudden voltage changes in your homeÕs power.
Voltage surges, spikes, and noise interference can
result from weather conditions or from other appliances
being turned on or off. To decrease the possibility of
your treadmill being damaged, always use a surge
suppressor with your treadmill (see drawing 1 at
the right).
Surge Suppressor
Lug
Metal Screw
Surge suppressors are sold at most hardware stores
and department stores. Use only a single-outlet surge
suppressor that is UL 1449 listed as a transient voltage
surge suppressor (TVSS). The surge suppressor must
have a UL suppressed voltage rating of 400 volts or
less and a minimum surge dissipation of 450 joules.
The surge suppressor must be electrically rated for
120 volts AC and 15 amps.
The temporary adapter should be used only until a
properly grounded outlet (drawing 1) can be installed
by a qualified electrician.
The green-colored rigid ear, lug, or the like extending
from the adapter must be connected to a permanent
ground such as a properly grounded outlet box cover.
Whenever the adapter is used it must be held in place
by a metal screw. Some 2-pole receptacle outlet box
covers are not grounded. Contact a qualified electrician to determine if the outlet box cover is
grounded before using an adapter.
This product must be grounded. If it should malfunction or break down, grounding provides a path of least
resistance for electric current to reduce the risk of electric shock. This product is equipped with a cord having
an equipment-grounding conductor and a grounding
plug. Plug the power cord into a surge suppressor,
and plug the surge suppressor into an appropriate
outlet that is properly installed and grounded in
accordance with all local codes and ordinances.

Conditioning Guidelines
FACTORS IN A SENSIBLE DIET
3
Your target heart rate (THR), is the rate at which
you would like your heart to work during aerobic
exercise. It is expressed as a percentage of your
maximum heart rate (MHR). MHR is the maximum
number of times that your heart can pump during
one minute. To determine your approximate MHR,
subtract your age (in years) from 220. This is only
an estimation of your MHRÑonly clinical stress
testing can provide an actual MHR reading.
¥ Choose high-fiber, low-fat, and low-in-sugar
foods: fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.
¥ Eat at least five servings of fruits and
vegetables each day.
¥ Cut back on red meat consumption; eat lean
meat, white meat, and fish.
¥ Choose healthy snacks; bring healthy foods
with you to work or in the car.
Once you have determined your MHR, you can
establish your target heart rate zone. Beginning
exercisers may wish to start at 60 to 70 percent of
their MHR. This level is called the Health level.
Exercise at 70 to 85 percent of your MHR for the
optimal training, aerobic, or cardiovascular levelÑ
the Fitness level. Advanced exercisers, or those
wishing to do sports, athletic conditioning, or interval training workouts should exercise at 80 to 85
percent of the MHR for short periods of time. The
chart below shows Target Heart Rate Zones for
Health, Fitness, and Advanced exercisers.
¥ Eat regular meals or mini-meals. Control your
portion sizeÑdon't binge or overeat. Eat
slowly.
¥ Reduce fast food and pre-packaged meals.
¥ Pay attention to fat content and calories.
¥ Limit alcoholic beverages and caffeine.
¥ Drink at least eight to ten glasses of water a
day.
Be sure to check your heart rate at least twice
during an aerobic conditioning session. First, check
your heart rate five minutes into your workout to be
sure that you are at the proper intensity. Then,
check it again near the end of your workout to
verify that you have maintained your target heart
rate for the recommended period of time.
EXERCISE STEPS

Pulse
The following 9 steps for designing your exercise
program were developed by exercise physiologists at
NordicTrack. The actual exercise you perform is only
a part of a safe and effective training program. There
are many other aspects to developing a life-long

3. Hamstring StretchÑSit with one leg extended.
Bring the sole of the opposite foot toward you and
rest it against the inner thigh of your extended leg.
Reach toward your toes as far as possible. Hold for
15 to 30 seconds, then relax. Repeat 3 times for
both legs. Stretches: Hamstrings, lower back, and
groin.
WEIGHT LOSS TIPS
At least four, 30-minute workouts per week,
along with a reduced-calorie diet, are
recommended if you are trying to lose weight.
However, be sure to stay within your target heart
rate zone and exercise a maximum of 5 days per
week for 60 minutes per workout.
4. Inner Thigh StretchÑSit with the soles of your
feet together and your knees outward. Pull your
feet toward your groin area as far as possible. Hold
for 15 to 30 seconds, then relax. Repeat 3 times.
Stretches: Quadriceps and hip muscles.
Good posture is the key to safe, comfortable
workouts. Keep your chin up and your head
facing forward. Align your head and shoulders
with your hips. Avoid leaning forward. Keep your
back straight.
4
5. Quadriceps StretchÑWith one hand against a
wall for balance, reach back and grasp one foot
with your other hand. Bring your heel as close to
your buttocks as possible. Hold for 15 to 30
seconds, then relax. Repeat 3 times for each leg.
Stretches: Quadriceps and hip muscles.
Warm up before you begin.
A warm-up routine prepares your body and mind
for vigorous exercise. It also provides insurance
against injury and soreness. Warm up with two to
five minutes of slow exercise, at minimal intensity.
5
1
Stretch after your warm-up.
A pliable, well-stretched muscle is less susceptible
to injury. Perform the recommended stretches on a
smooth, flat surface.
The correct form for several stretches is described
below (refer to the drawings at the right). Be sure to
move slowly as you stretchÑnever bounce.

1. Toe Touch StretchÑSit with your knees bent
slightly and slowly bend forward from your hips.
Allow your back and shoulders to relax as you
reach toward your toes as far as possible. Hold for
15 to 30 seconds, then relax. Repeat 3 times.
Stretches: Hamstrings, back of knees, and back.
5
2. Calf/Achilles StretchÑWith one leg in front of
the other, reach forward and place your hands
against a wall. Keep your back leg straight and
your back foot flat on the floor. Bend your front leg,
lean forward, and move your hips toward the wall.
Hold for 15 to 30 seconds, then relax. Repeat 3
times for each leg. To cause further stretching of
the achilles tendons, bend your back leg as well.
Stretches: Calves, achilles tendons, and ankles.
4
23
ÒTÓ is for the time or duration of your workout.
Beginning exercisers may wish to start with 5
to 10 minutes of aerobic activity. Those in average
physical condition should exercise for 20 to 30
minutes. Highly fit people, or people who want to
lose weight, should exercise for 30 to 60 minutes.
The key to the time factor is that you maintain your
target heart rate for the duration of the workout
period.
T
BENEFITS OF AEROBIC EXERCISE
¥ Effective weight loss and management
¥ Added protection from heart disease
¥ Increased strength and health of bones
¥ Higher levels of energy for greater productivity
during the day
Remember to take it slowly. Fitness is a lifelong
commitment. If you can't go the full 20 minutes
from the start, which is common, try to exercise for
five minutes at a time, a couple of times a day.
Recent research indicates that several short
workouts in one day can also provide fitness
benefits. Gradually, your stamina will increase and
it will become easier to exercise for longer periods
of time.
¥ Healthy stress relief from a pressure-packed
day
¥ Greater intellectual capacity and productivity
6
Get FIT with the PowerTread 1750.
Effective aerobic exercise has three major parts:
frequency, intensity, and time. The acronym "FIT"
may help you to remember these three parts:
7
Keep moving! It is important that you cool down
properly to allow your heart rate to decrease slowly
after it has been elevated. This helps the blood
flow from your extremities back to your heart. Keep
your legs moving on the treadmill at a slower pace
for at least five minutes following the aerobic
phase.
ÒFÓ stands for the frequency of your workouts.
Three to five workouts per week are recommended. Exercise at least four times a week for
weight loss.
F
ÒIÓ refers to the intensity of your workout.
Check your heart rate at least twice during
your aerobic exercise session: once during the
session and once again at the end. Maintain a
workout intensity level within your Target Heart
Rate Zone. You can measure your heart rate using
the heart rate monitor. An alternate method is
described below:
I
Cool down after aerobic exercise.
8
Stretch again at the end of your exercise
session.
Stretching after exercise reduces muscle soreness.
See step 5 on page 23.
9
Participate in strength training.
"Balanced fitness, including both strength training
and aerobic exercise, can do more to ensure a
happy life than just about anything else known to
medical science today."
1. Lower your wrist below your heart level. This will
make your heart rate stronger and easier to feel.
2. Using the
index and
middle fingertips
of your right
hand, touch your
left wrist, onefourth inch from
your wrist joint,
at the base of
your thumb.
ÑKenneth Cooper, M.D., M.P.H., founder of The
Cooper Institute For Aerobic Research, Dallas,
Texas.
A strength-training program increases your lean
muscle mass. Lean muscle mass aids in burning
body fat. With additional muscle mass and
strength, you will receive the full benefits of an
exercise program. You will also be less prone to
injuries during the aerobic phase of your workout.
3. Apply minimal pressure with both fingersÑlet
the beat come to your fingers. If you can't find your
pulse, use the opposite wrist and hand.
24
Move on to the Fitness Level only when you feel ready
and your heart rate has moved below your target heart
rate zone.
WORKOUT TIPS
Full-body conditioning helps take care of many
of life's aches and pains. However, it takes time
for your body to adapt to any new routine. Below
are some tips that will help ease you into your
new NordicTrack routine.
The Fitness level usually lasts 12 to 20 weeks. (It may
last longer, depending on your fitness goals.) At this
level you should strive to achieve your fitness goals.
Set realistic short- and long-term goals for yourself.
Frequently re-evaluate your fitness goals and reward
yourself as you are successful.
¥ Begin and end each exercise session with the
stretches on page 23. Stretch in a smooth,
controlled manner. Hold each stretch for 15 to
30 seconds. You may experience some initial
muscle soreness and discomfort as a result of
exercising inactive or poorly stretched
muscles. For maximum benefit, a stretching
routine must be performed every day.
Move on to the Advanced Level when you have
reached your fitness goals and your heart rate has
moved below your target heart rate zone.
Work out at the Advanced level once you have reached
your desired fitness goals. It is intended to be a maintenance program and should continue on a regular, longterm basis.
¥ Be aware of your body's signals and react to
them accordingly. At your correct exercise
intensity, you should be able to whistle or
maintain a normal conversation. If during
exercise you feel tired, light-headed, dizzy, or
nauseated, stop exercising immediately and
consult your physician. Your heart rate may
also be affected by such things as stress,
caffeine, nicotine or prescription drugs.
You may wish to add Interval Training to your maintenance program as well. Interval training will add variety
to your workout routine and further condition your
cardiovascular system. Interval training has been
shown to promote higher levels of aerobic conditioning.
It consists of spurts of high-intensity activity followed by
active rest periods of exercise at a lower intensity.
For example, a one-minute spurt of high-resistance,
fast exercise* is followed by a two- to three-minute
active rest period of low-resistance, slow exercise. The
duration of these periods should be based more on
how you feel rather than time. A sequence such as this
should be repeated 5 to 20 times during your workout
session.
WORKOUT PROGRAMS
The Health level typically lasts four to six weeks. At this
level you should be concerned with slowly improving
your fitness level and endurance.
*Estimated maximum heart rate (MHR) = 220 - your age.
Take it slowly. Set mini-goals for yourself. You may
want to begin your fitness routine with three or four
short, 5- or 10-minute workouts in a day.
