Workout guidelines
Good health is an exercise in common sense.
The Surgeon General released a new study in 2001, The Surgeon General’s Call To
Action To Prevent and Decrease Overweight and Obesity. It indicates that 61% of
American adults are either overweight or obese. The story states that overweight
increases the risk of health problems, such as heart disease, certain types of cancer,
type 2 diabetes, etc. It further points out that overweight needs to be regarded primarily as a Health rather than as an Appearance issue.
The Surgeon General’s Healthy weight advice for consumers is:
1. Aim for a healthy weight: Find your Body Mass Index (BMI) on the chart below.
2. Be active: Keep physically active to balance the calories you consume.
3. Eat well: Select sensible portion sizes.
BMI = (weight (lb) ÷ height2 (in)) x 703

Heart rate is an important key to your exercise.
The Surgeon General also released a report on physical activity and health. This report
definitively stated that exercise and fitness are beneficial for a person’s health and redefined that exercise is a key component of disease prevention and healthier living.
Medical research has shown us that there is an amount of exercise, which is enough to
condition the cardio respiratory system and the muscles of the body. This amount of
exercise is between 60% and 85% of your maximum heart rate measured during a
training session. This range allows enough exercise to achieve fitness, but not an excessive amount to cause injury. Your heart rate is an excellent indicator of the amount of
10

Workout guidelines (continued)
stress placed on the cardiovascular system. Taking full advantage of this information,
this treadmill is designed to include heart rate monitoring features.
If exercise intensity is too low or too high, no gains will be made in fitness. If the intensity is too low, the stress levels are ineffective. If the intensity is too high, injury or
fatigue may set your exercise program back as you try to recover.
The best way to monitor exercise intensity is to accurately count your pulse during exercise. Your heart rate can easily be determined by counting your pulse at the chest, wrist
or at the carotid artery on your neck. It is difficult to count your own pulse during exercise, mainly because you cannot count fast enough to get an accurate number. This
treadmill is equipped with a wireless telemetry receiving system. What it does is automatically count your heart rate while you are wearing a heart rate chest belt during your
exercising period. Heart rate is monitored and electronically displayed as a digital
readout. Your target heart rate, the intensity needed to improve cardiovascular fitness,
depends primarily on your age and not your state of fitness. It is calculated as a percentage of your maximum heart rate, estimated as 220 minus your age. It is most effective to train at your target heart rate between 60% and 85% of your maximum heart
rate. In order to get the most accurate reading, it is recommended to enter your age
before your workout.
.
Heart Rate Guidelines
60% - 85% Maximum Target
Maximum Heart Rate & Training Zone
To calculate your maximum heart rate and find your training zone, use the following formula. An example has been provided below based for a 35-year –old person:
220 – Age = Maximum Heart Rate
60% of Maximum Heart Rate
85% of Maximum Heart Rate
Training Zone:
(220 – 35 = 185)
(60% x 185 = 111bpm)
(85% x 185 = 157bpm)
111bpm – 157bpm
Quantity & Quality
It is recommended that you accumulate at least 30 minutes of physical activity most days
of the week. Physical activity should be initiated slowly and the intensity should be
increased gradually. You should select activities that you enjoy and can fit into your
daily life. Having Diamondback equipment at home certainly gives you the comfortable
and convenient workout you want.
The American College of Sports Medicine makes the following recommendations for the
quantity and quality of training for developing and maintaining cardio respiratory fitness in healthy adults:
•
•
•
•
•
An activity that uses large muscle groups, maintained continuously, and is
rhythmical and aerobic in nature.
Duration: 20 to 60 minutes of continuous aerobic activity, including a warm-up
and cool-down period for each exercise session.
Frequency: 3 to 5 times per week.
Intensity: 60% to 85% of maximum heart rate.
In addition to aerobic exercise, it is recommended that you add strength training
of moderate intensity twice per week to your program.

Workout guidelines (continued)
Get a smart start on exercising.
Anyone over the age of 35, as well as younger persons whom are overweight, should
check with his/her physician before beginning any type of exercise program. People
who have diabetes or high blood pressure, a family history of heart disease, high
cholesterol or have lead a sedentary lifestyle should protect themselves with a medical check-up and a stress test, preferably administered during exercise by a healthcare professional.
1. Always stretch before your workout to loosen muscles, and afterwards to cool down.
2. The first few minutes of your workout should be devoted to warming up muscles
before a vigorous workout, and building your heart rate slowly.
3. After your aerobic workout of about 24-32 minutes, spend 10 minutes gradually
reducing your heart rate with a lower resistance level.
Remember, to start slow, with intensity low, until you build endurance and strength.
And always consult your physician before beginning any exercise program.

Heart Rate Monitoring Devices
Built in Wireless Heart Rate Receiver
Note: Chest strap transmitter does not come with this unit; contact your dealer for
purchase
This treadmill is equipped with a built-in receiver for your heart rate monitoring. To
get an accurate reading using these devices, you will need to be within three feet of
the console, and a minimum of four feet from others using a heart rate monitoring
device.
(Note: The transmitter may fluctuate erratically if you are too close to other heart rate
monitoring equipment or there is other electronics near by, such as TV, Radio...)
The receiver of the wireless ECG system is built into the console unit of this treadmill.
While using heart rate control modes, the computer monitors the exact measurement
of your pulse. Heart rate frequency is displayed while the computer continually compares heart rate to the preprogrammed personal data. The computer adjusts the
wattage to maintain heart rate at the preprogrammed level.
How to Wear Your Sensor/ Transmitter (Chest Strap)
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
Buckle one end of the chest strap onto the transmitter.
Adjust the band length so that the fit is snug, but not too tight.
Buckle the other end of the chest strap onto the transmitter.
Center the transmitter on your chest below the pectoral muscle (breasts).
Stretch the transmitter away from your chest and moisten the conductive
electrode strips located next to the buckles with water.
(Note: The transmitter is on automatically when being worn. It is off when it is not
connected to your body. However, as moisture may activate the transmitter,
thoroughly dry the transmitter to prolong battery life.)
Erratic Heart Rate Readings:
Erratic readings on the receiver can be caused by electromagnetic disturbances. If
the heart rate readings appear to be abnormal, check that your product is not within range of other strong electromagnetic signals. Common sources are televisions,
computers, cars, cell phones, TV antennas and high voltage power lines (both above
and below ground). Please note: Static electricity in clothing or a flapping shirt can
cause electrical interference, so some items of clothing, i.e. man-made fibers, can
also be the cause. Please try wetting the t-shirt in the area where the transmitter is.
If the battery of the transmitter is running low, the transmission range decreases and
may cause errors similar to the ones listed above in this document.

Maintenance
CAUTION – FOR SAFE OPERATION
Always inspect hardware prior to any exercise session. Turn power switch to the “OFF”
position and unplug electrical cord from the outlet before attempting maintenance.
Inspect unit for loose parts and frayed wires. Repair or replace any damaged or worn
parts, tighten all loose hardware as necessary.
After training, always wipe down your treadmill. Perspiration that continuously settles
on frame, pads or casing may eventually cause rust or damage to the unit. Damage
resulting from lack of proper maintenance will not be covered under warranty.
A proper maintenance will extend the life and ensure a better performance of the treadmill. Below you will find our recommendations for the maintenance of your treadmill:
Overall Cleaning
Use a damp cloth to clean outer surface and console of the treadmill. DO NOT USE
PETROLEUM BASED PRODUCTS TO CLEAN ANY PART OF THE TREADMILL. Use a
clean, lint free, cloth to occasionally clean the deck surface.
Belt/Deck Maintenance
Lubrication to the deck is very important to your treadmill. It will reduce the wear of the
deck and maintain the smooth running surface. Although this treadmill has been prelubed at the factory but periodic lubrication is still necessary. It is difficult to predict
exactly when the belt will need lubrication, one of the most common symptoms is a hesitation or pause of the belt when you set your foot. Here are some of the tips for deck
lubrication:
•
Wipe entire deck surface with a clean, lint free cloth.
•
Lubricate deck with the Diamondback Lubrication Kit (which can be purchased
through your Diamondback Dealer.)
•
Follow the instructions as specified in the Lubrication Kit.
•
Lubricate your treadmill approximately every 6 months of normal use.
Belt Adjustment
Proper belt adjustment is important for smooth and safe operation of the treadmill. If the
belt is too loose, you will feel a slight hesitation each time you take a step. (If this symptom occurs, first turn the treadmill off and try lubricating the deck/belt – see Belt/Deck
Maintenance.)
The adjustment screws must be tightened evenly in order to adjust the belt properly. The
adjustment screws are located at the rear of the treadmill in the end caps.

500tmOM
8/24/06

Page 42
Maintenance, (continued)
Both adjustment screws should be tightened 1/4 turn in a clockwise direction with a
wrench and the belt checked for slipping after each adjustment. If the belt continues to
slip, repeat this process until the belt stops slipping. Make sure to only turn the adjustment screws 1/4 turn each time until the slipping stops. This will insure that you do not
over-tighten the rollers. Over-tighten the rollers may cause serious damage to the treadmill.
If the belt tracks too close to one side, loosen the adjustment screw on the opposite
side, turning it counterclockwise 1/4 turn. Restart the treadmill and run it at 5 mph /
8 kph for 1 to 2 minutes to insure the belt will stay in the center. Repeat the procedure if necessary.
1/4 Turn each time on
both sides
If noises develop or malfunctions occur, contact your authorized Diamondback fitness
dealer.
