INTRODUCTION
CONGRATULATIONS ON PURCHASING YOUR
NEW BALANCE 7.0r RECUMBENT BIKE
With this product in your home, you have everything you need to start
your own workout program to tone and firm the major muscle groups of
your lower body. This is vital for all of us, regardless of age, sex, or fitness
level, and regardless of whether your primary goal is toning, health
maintenance, or more energy for daily activities.
Proper exercise, including a low fat diet, strength training and aerobic
exercise, tones and conditions the muscles we use every day to stand,
walk, lift and turn. It can actually transform our body composition by
reducing body fat and increasing the proportion of lean muscle in
our bodies. Using the recumbent bike will help in reducing body fat
and increasing cardiovascular endurance.
Be sure to read through this Owner’s Manual carefully.

IMPORTANT:
Please read pages 9-10 before beginning
your workout for important instructions
on how to use your New Balance
7.0r Recumbent Bike.
GETTING STARTED
Once your New Balance 7.0r Recumbent Bike is assembled, make sure that your workout space has a
solid, level surface with plenty of space around it. We recommend placing a mat under your unit to
protect your flooring.
Correct Workout Position
When exercising, keep your back straight and your head in a neutral position to minimize neck and upper
back strain. When pedaling do not lock out your knees, at the bottom of the pedaling motion there should
be a slight bend in the knee. Always try to pedal the bike with a smooth and rhythmic motion.
USING YOUR NEW BALANCE 7.0r RECUMBENT BIKE
WARNING
RISK OF ELECTRICAL SHOCK. THIS UNIT IS TO BE USED
ONLY INDOORS AND IN A DRY LOCATION.
The New Balance 7.0r, provides a completely smooth and natural feeling, that minimizes the impact on
your hips, knees and ankles while providing a superior aerobic and muscle toning workout. The durable
steel frame and transport wheels make the unit mobile and easy to use.
IMPORTANT:
• This unit is not recommended for children.
• Always make sure that you feel balanced and secure.
• Always use your machine on a clean, solid and level surface.
DUAL SIDED PEDAL
Top Side of Pedal
Bottom Side of Pedal
The New Balance 7.0r has a dual side
pedal. The top pedal is to be used with
shoes and the bottom smooth side of
the pedal is meant to be used with a
bare or sock covered foot.
To use the bottom side of the pedal
gently nest the balls of your feet into
the pedal contour. You may have to try
sliding your foot forward and backward
before you feel it nest into the pedal.
Once your foot is comfortably aligned
with the pedal contour, tighten the
strap so it is firmly around the foot.

USING THE PULSE FUNCTION ON THE HANDLEBARS
The Pulse window on your electronics works in conjunction with the pulse sensors found
on the Rear Handlebars. When you are ready to read your pulse:
1) Place both hands firmly on the pulse sensors. For the most accurate reading, it is
important to use both hands.
2) Look at your pulse window. The small heart will begin to blink.
3) Your estimated heart rate will appear in the window approximately 6 seconds after
you grasp the pulse sensors.
4) Refer to the Target Heart Rate Zone Chart
found on page 17 of this manual. For additional
information about the importance of working
within certain heart rate ranges, see pages
15 and 16 – Measuring Your Heart Rate.
5) This estimate is not exact and persons with
medical conditions and/or a specific need
for accurate heart rate monitoring should
not rely on the estimations provided.

OPERATING THE COMPUTER
WARNING
The batteries must be installed as instructed
on page 8. Do not carry batteries loosely,
such as in a purse or pocket. The batteries
may explode or leak and cause injury if
installed improperly, misused, disposed
of in a fire or recharged.

Introduction
Your unit is equipped with a programmable
computer to help you track your progress and
motivate you to reach your fitness goals.
The computer will count up in 0.1 increments. After
the display value reaches 999, it will reset to “0” and
begin counting from 0.1 again.
This computer provides different programs designed
to tailor to your fitness goals. Simply choose the
program you like, set the time limit and begin
exercising. Your monitor will then show your
approximate pulse, approximate calories burned,
elapsed time, speed and distance traveled.
AGE: Your computer is age-programmable from
10 to 99 years when you choose all programs
except Program 8. When using Program 8 you will
set Target Heart Rate instead of Age.
Functions and Features
QUICK START BUTTON: Allows you to start the
computer without selecting a program. TIME
automatically begins to count up from zero.
Use the ▲ UP and ▼ DOWN buttons to adjust
the resistance.
TIME: Shows your elapsed workout time in minutes
and seconds. Your computer will automatically
count up from 0:00 to 99:59 in one second intervals.
You may also program your computer to count
down from a set value by using the ▲ UP and
▼ DOWN buttons. If you continue exercising once
the time has reached 0:00, the computer will
begin beeping, and reset itself to the original
time set, letting you know your workout is done.
SPEED: Displays your workout speed in miles
per hour.
Note: This unit is not recommended for children.
If you do not set an age, this function will always
default to age 30.
PULSE (approximate): Your computer displays your
pulse rate in beats per minute during your workout.
Pulse sensors, located on the Rear Handlebars
enable the user to read his/her pulse rate. By
grasping the sensors and holding firmly, the display
will read your pulse rate in the display window. Your
pulse will continue to read as long as your hands
stay on the pulse sensors.
When used properly, the heart rate pulse
sensors and display monitor provide a
reasonably accurate estimate of your actual
heart rate. This estimate is not exact and
persons with medical conditions and/or a
specific need for accurate heart rate monitoring
should not rely on the estimations provided.
DISTANCE: Displays the accumulative distance
traveled during each workout up to a maximum
of 99.9 miles. The distance will be displayed in
tenths of a mile.
Buttons and Definitions
CALORIES (approximate): Your computer will
estimate the cumulative calories burned at any
given time during your workout. Calorie expenditure
on your computer is based on realistic expectations;
however, your computer is not individually programmable for all necessary variables to accurately
monitor actual calories burned.
START: This button allows the user to STOP or START
exercising. (By holding this button for two seconds
the user can reset all values to “0”). The computer
will turn off automatically after approximately 4.5
minutes of non use. All values will then be reset to “0”.
ENTER: This button allows users to select the
Program, Time, Distance, Age, Calories, (Target Heart
Rate Program 8 only).
(continued on next page)

▲ UP BUTTON: This button allows the user to increase
the values of the Tension Level, Time, Distance,
Calories, Age and Program.
▼ DOWN BUTTON: This button allows the user to
decrease the values of the Tension Level, Time,
Distance, Calories, Age and Program.
LCD Workout Graphics
This system offers 13 programs that you can preset
the workout time and will divide the time by 10
intervals. If you do not preset the workout time
the system will count up the workout time in
one-second increments.
Programs 1-7:
be able to keep your Heart Rate close to the target
beats per minute.
When used properly, the heart rate pulse sensors
and display monitor provide a reasonably
accurate estimate of your actual heart rate. This
estimate is not exact and persons with medical
conditions and/or a specific need for accurate
heart rate monitoring should not rely on the
estimations provided.
Important: You must keep your hands on the pulse
sensors throughout the entire workout when using
Programs 8 through 11.
Important: Be sure to set your actual age when
using these programs.

EXERCISE GUIDELINES
IMPORTANT
Please review this section before you begin exercising.
IMPORTANT:
If you are over 35 and have been inactive for
several years, you should consult your physician,
who may or may not recommend a graded
exercise test.
If you are just beginning your exercise program,
your target heart rate range should be roughly at
60% of your maximum heart rate. As you become
more conditioned (or if you are already in good
cardiovascular shape) you can increase your
target heart rate to 70%-85% of your maximum
heart rate. Remember, your target heart rate is
only a guide.
You should also consult your physician if you
have the following:
• High blood pressure
• High cholesterol
• Asthma
• Heart trouble
• Family history of early stroke or
heart attack deaths
• Frequent dizzy spells
• Extreme breathlessness after mild exertion
• Arthritis or other bone problems
• Severe muscular, ligament or
tendon problems
• Other known or suspected disease
• If you experience any pain or tightness
in your chest, an irregular heartbeat or
shortness of breath, stop exercising
immediately. Consult your physician
before continuing.
KNOWING THE BASICS
Physical fitness is most easily understood by
examining its components, or "parts".
There is widespread agreement that these
five components comprise the basics of
physical training:
CARDIORESPIRATORY ENDURANCE – the ability
to deliver oxygen and nutrients to tissues, and to
remove wastes, over sustained periods of time.
Using your New Balance 7.0r will improve this.
MUSCULAR STRENGTH – the ability of a muscle to
exert force for a brief period of time. Upper-body
strength, for example, can be measured by various
weight-lifting exercises.
MUSCULAR ENDURANCE – the ability of a muscle,
or a group of muscles, to sustain repeated contractions or to continue applying force against a fixed
object. Push ups are often used to test endurance
of arm and shoulder muscles.
FLEXIBILITY – the ability to move joints and use
muscles through their full range of motion. The
sit-and-reach test is a good measure of flexibility
of the lower back and backs of the upper legs.
BODY COMPOSITION – often considered a
component of fitness. It refers to the makeup of
the body in terms of lean mass (muscle, bone, vital
tissue and organs) and fat mass. An optimal ratio of
fat to lean mass is an indication of fitness, and the
right types of exercises will help you decrease body
fat and increase or maintain muscle mass. To help
track your progress we have provided Workout
Progress Charts on pages 21 and 22.
• Pregnant
A COMPLETE EXERCISE PROGRAM
• Balance Impairment
How often, how long and how hard you exercise,
and what kinds of exercises you do should be
determined by what you are trying to accomplish.
Your goals, your present fitness level, age, health,
skills, interest and convenience are among the
factors you should consider. For example, an
athlete training for high-level competition would
follow a different program than a person whose
goals are good health and the ability to meet
work and recreational needs.
• Taking medications that affect heart rate
Your exercise program should include something
from each of the four basic fitness components
14
described previously. Each workout should begin
with a warm up and end with a cool down. As a
general rule, space your workouts throughout the
week and avoid consecutive days of hard
exercise.
Here are the amounts of activity necessary for the
average healthy person to maintain a minimum
level of overall fitness. Included are some of the
popular exercises for each category.
by measuring your heart rate in beats per minute.
Refer to the “Measuring Your Heart Rate” section
below and on page16 for more information on how
to determine and measure your heart rate.
You can do different types of aerobic activities, say
walking one day, and use your New Balance 7.0r
the next. Make sure you choose an activity that
can be done regularly, and is enjoyable for you.
The important thing to remember is not to skip too
many days between workouts or fitness benefits will
be lost. If you must lose a few days, gradually work
back into your routine.
WARM UP – 5 -10 minutes of exercise such as
walking, slow jogging, knee lifts, arm circles or
trunk rotations. Low intensity movements that
simulate movements to be used in the activity
can also be included in the warm up.
WHEN TO EXERCISE
MUSCULAR STRENGTH – a minimum of two, 20
minute sessions per week that include exercises for
all the major muscle groups. Lifting weights is the
most effective way to increase strength.
The hour just before the evening meal is a
popular time for exercise. The late afternoon
workout provides a welcome change of pace at
the end of the work day and helps dissolve the
day's worries and tensions.
MUSCULAR ENDURANCE – at least three, 30 minute
sessions each week that include exercises such as
calisthenics, push ups, sit ups, pull ups, and weight
training for all the major muscle groups.
Another popular time to work out is early morning,
before the work day begins. Advocates of the early
start say it makes them more alert and energetic
on the job.
CARDIORESPIRATORY ENDURANCE – at least
three, 20 minute workouts of continuous aerobic
exercise each week. Working out on your New
Balance 7.0r Recumbent Bike is a good way to
obtain this aerobic activity. Other popular aerobic
conditioning activities include brisk walking,
jogging, swimming, elliptical exercise, rope jumping,
rowing, cross-country skiing, and some continuous
action games like racquetball and handball.
FLEXIBILITY – 10 -12 minutes of daily stretching
exercises performed slowly, without a bouncing
motion. This can be included after a warm up or
during a cool down. Refer to pages 18 and 19
for a list of total body stretches.
COOL DOWN – a minimum of 5 -10 minutes of
slow walking or lower intensity cycling, combined
with stretching.
AEROBIC EXERCISE:
HOW MUCH? HOW OFTEN?
Experts recommend that you do some form of
aerobic exercise at least three times a week for a
minimum of 20 continuous minutes. Of course, if
that is too much, start with a shorter time span and
gradually build up to the minimum. Then gradually
progress until you are able to work aerobically for
20 - 40 minutes. If you want to lose weight, you may
want to do your aerobic workout five times a week.
It is important to exercise at an intensity vigorous
enough to cause your heart rate and breathing to
increase. How hard you should exercise depends to
a certain degree on your age, and is determined
Among the factors you should consider in
developing your workout schedule are personal
preference, job and family responsibilities,
availability of exercise facilities and weather. It's
important to schedule your workouts for a time
when there is little chance that you will have to
cancel or interrupt them because of other
demands on your time.
You should not exercise strenuously during
extremely hot, humid weather or within two
hours after eating. Heat and/or digestion both
make heavy demands on the circulatory system,
and in combination with exercise can be an
over-taxing double load.
MEASURING YOUR HEART RATE
(see chart on page 17)
Heart rate is widely accepted as a good method
for measuring intensity during running, swimming,
cycling, and other aerobic activities. Exercise that
doesn't raise your heart rate to a certain level and
keep it there for 20 minutes won't contribute
significantly to cardiovascular fitness.
The heart rate you should maintain is called your
Target Heart Rate. There are several ways of arriving
at this figure. One of the simplest is: maximum heart
rate (220 - age) x 70%. Thus, the target heart rate for
a 40 year-old would be 126. In this example for this
40 year old to get a cardiovascular effect the
individual would need to keep their heart rate
(continued on next page)
15
at or above 126 beats per minute to get a
cardiovascular effect. Note: Although 70% was
used in this example, the heart rate range needed
to achieve results falls between 60% and 85% of
your maximum heart rate.
If you are just beginning your exercise program,
your target heart rate range should be roughly at
60% of your maximum heart rate. As you become
more conditioned (or if you are already in good
cardiovascular shape) you can increase your
target heart rate to 70%-85% of your maximum
heart rate. Remember, your target heart rate is
only a guide.
When checking heart rate during a workout, take
your pulse within five seconds after interrupting
exercise because it starts to go down once you
stop moving. Count pulse for 10 seconds and
multiply by six to get the per-minute rate.
Remember, your New Balance 7.0r Recumbent
Bike also comes with pulse sensors located on the
Rear Handlebars.
When used properly, the unit pulse sensors
can help you to determine your estimated
heart rate. To do so:
CLOTHING
All exercise clothing should be loose-fitting to
permit freedom of movement, and should make
the wearer feel comfortable and self-assured.
Never wear rubberized or plastic clothing, such
garments interfere with the evaporation of
perspiration and can cause body temperature
to rise to dangerous levels.
We recommend wearing a workout shoe with a
rubberized sole unless instructed otherwise.
TIPS TO KEEP YOU GOING
1) Adopt a specific plan and write it down.
2) Keep setting realistic goals as you go along,
and remind yourself of them often.
3) Keep a log to record your progress and make
sure to keep it up-to-date. See page 21-24.
4) Include weight and/or percent body fat
measures in your log. Extra pounds can easily
creep back.
a) Push the START button on your electronics
monitor.
5) Upgrade your fitness program as you progress.
Your New Balance 7.0r provides 13 different
workout programs to keep your workouts
challenging.
b) Gently grab both metal pulse sensors on
both handlebars. Wait 6 seconds.
6) Enlist the support and company of your family
and friends.
c) Your estimated heart rate range will be
displayed on screen. Check the chart on the
following page to see if you are within your
range according to your age.
7) Update others on your successes.
When used properly, the heart rate pulse
sensors and display monitor provide a
reasonably accurate estimate of your
actual heart rate. This estimate is not exact
and persons with medical conditions and/or
a specific need for accurate heart rate
monitoring should not rely on the
estimations provided.
9) Reward yourself periodically for a job well done!
By using the chart on page 17 you can see where
your heart rate falls in the minimum and maximum
target zones.
The above are guidelines, people with any medical
limitations should discuss this formula with their
physician.
16
8) Avoid injuries by pacing yourself and including
a warm up and cool down period as part of
every workout. See page 15.

WARM UP & COOL DOWN STRETCHES
Stretches can help improve flexibility and relieve the tightness in muscles
that results from repetitive sport movements that require a limited range
of motion. 10 to 12 minutes of daily stretching is recommended. This can
be done when warming up or cooling down. When performing these
stretches, your movements should be slow and smooth, with no bouncing
or jerking. Move into the stretch until you feel a slight tension, not pain, in
the muscle and hold the stretch for 20 to 30 seconds. Breathe slowly and
rhythmically. Be sure not to hold your breath. Remember that all stretches
must be done for both sides of your body.
1. Quadriceps Stretch
Stand close to a wall, chair or other solid object. Use one hand
to assist your balance. Bend the opposite knee and lift your heel
towards your buttocks. Reach back and grasp the top of your
foot with the same side hand. Keeping your inner thighs close
together, slowly pull your foot towards your buttocks until you
feel a gentle stretch in the front of your thigh. You do not have
to touch your buttocks with your heel. Stop pulling when you
feel the stretch. Keep your kneecap pointing straight down and
keep your knees close together. (Do not let the lifted knee swing
outward.)
Hold the stretch for 20 to 30 seconds. Repeat for the other leg.
2. Calf and Achilles Stretch
Stand approximately one arms length away from a wall or chair
with your feet hip-width apart. Keeping your toes pointed forward, move one leg in close to the chair while extending the
other leg behind you. Bending the leg closest to the chair and
keeping the other leg straight, place your hands on the chair.
Keep the heel of the back leg on the ground and move your
hips forward. Slowly lean forward from the ankle, keeping your
back leg straight until you feel a stretch in your calf muscles.
Hold for 20 to 30 seconds. Repeat for the opposite leg.
3. Overhead/Triceps Stretch
Stand with your feet shoulder width apart and your knees slightly
bent. Lift one arm overhead and bend your elbow, reaching
down behind your head with your hand toward the opposite
shoulder blade. Walk your fingertips down your back as far as
you can. Hold this position. Reach up with your opposite hand
and grasp your flexed elbow. Gently assist the stretch by pulling
on the elbow.
Hold for 20 to 30 seconds. Repeat for the opposite arm.
18
4. Back Stretch
Stand with your legs shoulder length apart and your knees
slightly bent. Bend forward from your waist with your arms
extending loosely in front of your body. Gently bend from the
waist flexing your body as far forward as it will go.
Hold for 20 to 30 seconds. Straighten up and repeat.
5. Standing Hamstrings Stretch
Stand with your legs hip-width apart. Extend one leg out in
front of you and keep that foot flat against the ground. With
your hands resting lightly on your thighs, bend your back leg
and lean forward slightly from your hips until you feel a stretch
in the back of your thigh. Be sure to lean forward from the hip
joint rather than bending at your waist.
Hold for 20 to 30 seconds. Repeat for the opposite leg.
6. Buttocks, Hips and Abdominal Stretch
Lay flat on your back with your hips relaxed against the floor.
Bend one leg at the knee. Keeping both shoulders flat on the
floor, gently grasp the bent knee with your hands and pull it over
your body and towards the ground. You should feel a stretch in
your hips, abdominals and lower back.
Hold for 20 to 30 seconds and release. Repeat for opposite side.
7. Inner Thigh Stretch
Sit on the floor and bend your legs so that the soles of your feet
are together. Place your elbows on your knees. Lean forward
from the waist and press down lightly on the inside of your knees.
You should feel a stretch in the muscles of your inside thigh.
8. Arm Pullback
Stand with your feet shoulder width apart and toes pointing
forward and with your knees slightly bent. Let your arms hang
relaxed on either side of your body. Expand your chest and pull
your shoulders back. Bend your elbows slightly and clasp your
hands behind your back. Slowly straighten your arms as you lift
your hands upward. Raise your hands upward until you feel mild
tension in your shoulder and chest region.
Hold for 20 to 30 seconds. Lower your arms to their original
position and bend your elbows. Release your hands and return
them to your sides.
