relate to the equipment.
Use the charts below and on the following page to
keep track of your progress over time. Before writing
on them, make as many copies as you think you’ll
need. We suggest you keep these in a notebook. You
will find it both informative and motivational to look
back at what you’ve done, and this data will help you
to chart future fitness goals as you progress. Every two
weeks, measure yourself to rechart your progress.
Date
1) Before starting this or any other exercise
program, consult your physician, who can assist
you in determining the target heart rate zone
appropriate for your age and physical condition.
Certain exercise programs or types of equipment
may not be appropriate for all people. This is
especially important for people over the age of
35, pregnant women, or those with pre-existing
health problems or balance impairments.

INTRODUCTION
CONGRATULATIONS ON PURCHASING YOUR
EDGE 595r 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 bike will help in reducing body fat and increasing
cardiovascular endurance.
Be sure to read through this Owner’s Manual carefully.
It is the authoritative source of information about your Recumbent Bike.
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.
Retain this manual for future reference.

WARM UP & COOL DOWN STRETCHES
EDGE 595r HARDWARE KIT
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 to12 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.

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.
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.
3) Keep a log to record your progress and make
sure to keep it up-to-date. See pages 23 - 24.
When used properly, the unit pulse sensors
can help you to determine your estimated
heart rate. To do so:
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 Computer.
5) Upgrade your fitness program as you progress.
Your bike provides 19 different programs to
keep your workouts challenging.
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.
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.
By using the chart on the following page 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.
a) Lift the Locking Arm Assembly on the Seat Carriage and slide the Seat Carriage over the Support Tube.
The Seat should be facing forward. The Support Tube will have tube protruding, make sure Protruding
Tube is closer to the front. The Seat Carriage should be located in the middle of the Support Tube.
b) Connect the Main Frame Pulse Wires to the Support Tube Pulse Wires.
c) Slide the Support Tube over the horizontal tube on the Main Frame.
d) Attach three Allen Bolts to the front of the Support tube. Each Bolt should have a Washer and a Spring
Washer accompany the Bolt.
e) Attach an Allen Bolt through the Main Frame to the Support Tube. The Bolt should be accompanied
with a Washer and a Spring Washer.
f) Connect the Handlebar Pulse Wires with the Support Tube Wires.
g) Insert the Wire Plug securely into the back of the Support Tube.
2) Keep setting realistic goals as you go along,
and remind yourself of them often.
Remember, your Recumbent Bike also comes with
pulse sensors located on the Rear Handlebar.
b) Gently grab both metal pulse sensors on
both handlebars. Wait 6 seconds.

general rule, space your workouts throughout
the week and avoid consecutive days of
hard exercise.
a certain degree on your age, and is determined
by measuring your heart rate in beats per minute.
Refer to the “Measuring Your Heart Rate” section
below and on page 18 for more information on
how to determine and measure your heart rate.
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.
You can do different types of aerobic activities,
say walking one day, and use your bike 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.
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.
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.

three, 20 minute workouts of continuous aerobic
exercise each week. Working out on your 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 20 and 21
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?
DO NOT PINCH THE WIRES.
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

WHEN TO EXERCISE
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.
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.
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 19)
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
at or above 126 beats per minute to get a

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.
• Pregnant
• Balance impairment
• Taking medications that affect heart rate
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:
a) To attach Left Foot Pedal, turn the Pedal
Bolt counter-clockwise until snug.
DO NOT turn clockwise. Doing so
will strip the threads.

CARDIORESPIRATORY ENDURANCE – the ability
to deliver oxygen and nutrients to tissues, and to
remove wastes, over sustained periods of time.
Using your bike 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.
pedal bolt
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 sitand-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 page 23.

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.
Your exercise program should include something
from each of the four basic fitness components

GETTING STARTED
OPERATING THE MONITOR
Once your 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 bike to protect your flooring.
WARNING
Do not plug AC Adapter into wall until
monitor is completely assembled.
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.
INTRODUCTION
USING YOUR RECUMBENT BIKE
The bike 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 bike mobile and easy to use.
This Monitor provides different programs
designed to tailor to your fitness goals. Simply
choose the program you like, set the parameters
and begin exercising. The Monitor will display
calories, RPM, time, speed, wattage, pulse,
heart rate and distance.
IMPORTANT
Always consult with your physician before
beginning any exercise program. If you are
taking medication which may affect your heart
rate, a physician’s advice is absolutely essential.
IMPORTANT:
• This bike is not recommended for children.
• Always make sure that you feel balanced and secure.
• Always use your bike on a clean, solid and level surface.
WARNING
Do not attempt to open the back cover of the
Monitor console. This is not a battery storage area;
this Monitor is powered by an AC Adapter. This unit
is to be used only indoors and in a dry location. Do
not plug the AC Adapter into the wall until the
electronics monitor is completely assembled.
Using the Pulse Function on the Rear Handlebar
The pulse window on your Monitor works in conjunction with the pulse sensors found
on the rear handlebar. 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 19
of this manual. For additional information about the importance
of working within certain heart rate ranges, see pages
17 and 18 – 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.
