Press the START button and enter a target
heart rate setting.
When the button is pressed, the words “ENTER
PERCENT” and the current target heart rate setting for the program will appear in the main display. The target heart rate setting represents a
percentage of your estimated maximum heart
rate. Note: Your estimated maximum heart rate is
determined by subtracting your age from 220. For
example, if you are 30 years old, your estimated
maximum heart rate is 190 beats per minute (220
– 30 = 190). Therefore, if you are 30 years old, a
target heart rate setting of 65% is equal to 123
beats per minute (65% of 190 is 123).
See step 1 on page 10.
3
Press the START button and enter your age.
Select one of the three pulse programs.
To select a pulse program, repeatedly press the
PROGRAM SELECT button until the words “CARDIO PULSE,” “ENDURANCE PULSE,” or “MANUAL PULSE” appear in the main display. Note:
The CARDIO PULSE program will keep your
heart rate near 65% of your estimated maximum
heart rate (see step 5 at the right for an explanation of estimated maximum heart rate). The ENDURANCE PULSE program will keep your heart
rate near 80% of your estimated maximum heart
rate. The MANUAL PULSE program will keep
your heart rate near a percentage that you select.
If desired, you can change the target heart rate
setting by pressing the + and – buttons beside the
ENTER AGE/WT. button. The target heart rate
setting can be from 50% to 85% of your estimated
maximum heart rate.

each segment. (If the MANUAL PULSE program
is selected, the same target heart rate setting is
programmed for all segments.)
Note: During pulse
programs, the matrix will show a
moving graphic
that represents
your heart rate.
Each time a heartbeat is detected,
an additional peak will appear in the graphic.
At the end of each segment, a series of tones will
sound, and then the resistance of the pedals will
automatically increase or decrease, if necessary, to
bring your heart rate closer to the target heart rate
setting for the next segment. The program will continue in this way until the main display shows that
no time remains in the program.

EXERCISE GUIDELINES
3
FACTORS IN A SENSIBLE DIET
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 MHR—only clinical stress
testing can provide an actual MHR reading.
• Choose high-fiber, low-fat, and low-sugar
foods: fruits, vegetables, and whole grains.
• Eat at least five servings of fruits and
vegetables daily.
• Reduce red meat consumption; eat lean meat,
white meat, and fish.
• Choose healthful snacks; bring healthful 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 level—
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 size—don'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
daily.
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
The following nine 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
commitment to physical fitness.
Consult your physician before beginning
any exercise program.
A medical examination or consultation with your
physician is essential.

3. Hamstring Stretch—Sit 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 Stretch—Sit 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 Stretch—With 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 helps provide 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.
3
2
The correct form for several stretches is described
below (see the drawings at the right). Be sure to
move slowly as you stretch—never bounce.
1. Toe Touch Stretch—Sit 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.
4
2. Calf/Achilles Stretch—With 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.
28
5
“T” 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 is to maintain your target heart rate
for the duration of the workout period.

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

Get FIT with NordicTrack
7
Effective aerobic exercise has three major parts:
frequency, intensity, and time. The acronym "FIT"
may help you to remember these three parts:
Cool down after aerobic exercise.
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 recumbent
bike at a slower pace for at least five minutes following the aerobic phase.
“F” 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
“I” 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 handgrip pulse sensor or the method
described below:
I
8
Stretch again at the end of your exercise
session.
Stretching after exercise reduces muscle soreness. See step 5 on page 28.
9
1. Lower your wrist below your heart level. This
will make your heart rate stronger and easier to
feel.
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."
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.
—Kenneth 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 fingers—let
the beat come to your fingers. If you can't find
your pulse, use the opposite wrist and hand.
29
WORKOUT TIPS
Move on to the Fitness Level only when you feel ready
and your heart rate has moved below your target heart
rate zone.
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 28. 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, long-term 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 threeminute 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.
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.
