For aerobic exercise benefits, it’s recommended that you exercise from between 24 and 60 minutes per session.
But start slowly and gradually increase your exercise times. If you’ve been sedentary during the past year, it may
be a good idea to keep your exercise times to as little as 5 minutes initially. Your body will need time to adjust
to the new activity. If your goal is weight loss, a longer exercise session at lower intensities has been found to
be most effective.
BEFORE
YOU BEGIN
HOW HARD? (Intensity of Workouts)
How hard you workout is also determined by your goals. If you use your home gym to prepare for a 5K run, you will
probably work out at a higher intensity than if your goal is general fitness. Regardless of your long term goals,
always begin an exercise program at low intensity. Aerobic exercise does not have to be painful to be beneficial!
There are two ways to measure your exercise intensity. The first is by monitoring your heart rate, and the second
is by evaluating your perceived exertion level (this is simpler than it sounds!).

Target Heart Rate Zone tells you
the number of times per minute
your heart needs to beat to
achieve a desired workout effect.
It is represented as a percentage
of the maximum number of times
your heart can beat per minute.
Target Zone will vary for each
individual, depending on age,
current level of conditioning,
and personal fitness goals. The
American Heart Association
recommends working-out at a
Target Heart Rate Zone of between
60% and 75% of your maximum
heart rate. A beginner will want to
workout in the 60% range while
a more experienced exerciser will
want to workout in the 70-75%
range. See chart for reference.

BEFORE

The American Heart Association recommends that you exercise at least 3 to 4 days per week to maintain fitness.
If you have other goals such as weight or fat loss, you will achieve your goal faster with more frequent exercise.
Whether it’s 3 days or 6 days, remember that your ultimate goal should be to make exercise a lifetime habit.
Many people are successful staying with a fitness program if they set aside a specific time of day to exercise.
It doesn’t matter whether it’s in the morning before breakfast, during lunch hour or while watching the evening
news. What’s more important is that it’s a time that allows you to keep a schedule, and a time when you won’t
be interrupted. To be successful with your fitness program, you have to make it a priority in your life. So decide
on a time, pull out your day planner and pencil in your exercise times for the next month!

General Strength Training Guidelines

WARRANTY
• It is recommended that you perform at least 10-15 minutes of cardiovascular exercise before beginning your
strength routine in order to warm the muscles, increase the heart rate, and prepare your body for strength
training.
• Always raise and lower the weight in a smooth, slow, and controlled motion.
• Try not to hold your breath during strength training exercises. It is recommended that you exhale as you raise
the weight and inhale as you lower the weight.
• It is recommended that each muscle group be allowed to rest 48 hours between strength training.
• Complete each strength routine with a few simple stretches to maintain flexibility, and allow your body to
cool-down after your session.

For a 42-year-old user: Find age along the bottom of the chart (round to 40), follow age column up to

Heart Rate = 135 Beats Per Minute.
TROUBLESHOOTING
& MAINTENANCE
A simple way to gauge your exercise intensity is to evaluate your perceived exertion level. While exercising, if you
are too winded to maintain a conversation without gasping, you are working out too hard. A good rule of thumb
is to work to the point of exhilaration, not exhaustion. If you cannot catch your breath, it’s time to slow down.
Always be aware of these warning signs of overexertion.
Always consult your physician before beginning an exercise program.

PRECAUTIONS
TIPS
WARM UP
STRETCH FIRST
Before using your product, it is best to take a few minutes doing a few gentle stretching exercises.
Stretching prior to exercise will improve flexibility and reduce chances of exercise related injury. Ease into
each of these stretches with a slow gentle motion. Do not stretch to the point of pain. Make sure not to
bounce while doing these stretches.
Always perform 10-15 minutes of aerobic activity before beginning your strength training session. This
warm-up will limber your muscles and prepare them for more strenuous exercise. Make sure that you warmup on your product at a slow pace. The warm up should gradually increase your heart rate into your heart
rate training zone and increase core body temperature.
COOL DOWN
TIPS
ASSEMBLY
Stand near a wall with the toes of tour left foot about 18" from the wall, and
the right foot about 12" behind the other foot. Lean forward, pushing against
the wall with your palms. Keep your heels flat and hold this position for a
count of 15 seconds. Make sure that you do not bounce while stretching.
Repeat on the other side.
ACHIEVING YOUR FITNESS GOALS

Using a wall to provide balance, grasp your left ankle

of your thigh for 15 seconds. Repeat with your right
ankle and hand.

• Weight Loss - lower intensity, longer duration workouts
• Improve Body Shape and Tone - interval workouts, alternate between hi and low intensities
• Increased Energy Level - more frequent daily workouts
• Improved Sports Performance - high intensity workouts
CONDITIONING
GUIDELINES
2. STANDING QUADRICEPS STRETCH
If possible try to define your personal goals in precise, measurable terms, and then put your goals in writing.
The more specific you can be, the easier it will be to track your progress. If your goals are long term, divide
them up into monthly and weekly segments. Longer term goals can lose some of the immediate motivation
benefits. Short term goals are easier to achieve.
TROUBLESHOOTING
& MAINTENANCE
BEFORE
YOU BEGIN
An important step in developing a long term fitness program is to determine your goals. Is your primary
goal for exercising to lose weight? Improve muscle tone and/or strength? Reduce stress? Knowing what
your goals are will help you develop a more successful exercise program. Below are some common exercise
goals:
Sit on the floor with your legs together and straight out in front of you. Do
not lock your knees. Extend your fingers towards your toes and hold for a
count of 15 seconds. Make sure that you do not bounce while stretching. Sit
upright again. Repeat one time.

Never stop exercising suddenly! A cool-down period of 3-5 minutes allows your heart to readjust to the
decreased demand. Your cool-down period should consist of repeating the stretching exercises listed above

PROBLEM: The cables feel rough and are noisy during use.
SOLUTION: Verify the following:
Cleanliness of your home gym and its operation environment will keep maintenance problems and service calls to a
minimum. For this reason, we recommend that the following preventive maintenance schedule be followed.
EVERY WEEK
• Lubricate guide rods with a spray or silicone gel lubricant.
• Inspect cable ends and cable insulation for damage.
EVERY MONTH - IMPORTANT!
• Inspect all frame bolts and tighten as needed.
ADJUSTING CABLE TENSION
Regularly check the cable tension of your home gym. If excessive slack
exists adjust cable tension by removing the pulley bolts and moving
one or both pulleys to the inner mounting position in the dual floating
pulley bracket and then reinstalling the pulley bolts. Cable tension
may also be adjusted using the threaded cable screw on single pulley
bracket and weight stack. Twist threaded end to adjust tension and
then tighten lock nut.
NOTE: Always maintain at least ½˝ of weight cable screw in bayonet.

Your home gym is designed to be reliable and easy to use. However, if you experience a problem, please reference
