BEFORE GETTING STARTED
It is always important to consult a physician for a complete physical examination before starting any exercise program.
Beyond identifying any risk factors you may have, your health professional can assist you in developing an exercise
program which establishes the frequency and intensity appropriate for your age and current health status.
The CMXERG+ is an excellent choice for rehabilitation or deconditioned individuals in that it provides for a low pedaling
requirement. You should always exercise caution when using this equipment for the first time. Overexertion or the
possibility of injury exists when starting any new exercise program.
CAUTION: If at any time during a workout, you experience pain or tightness in the
chest, an irregular heartbeat, shortness of breath, feel faint or severe discomfort of
any kind, STOP exercising immediately. Consult your physician before continuing
your program.

SETTING UP AND OPERATING THE CMXErg+
Taking a moment to learn how to set up your CMXErg+ correctly will make your workouts a more pleasant experience.
Understanding all the uses of the CMXErg+ will allow you to achieve all of your rehabilitation and fitness goals.
FOR USE AS UPPER BODY ERGOMETER
Place the CMXErg+ on a solid and secure table top:
Make sure the foam hand pedals are attached.
Set the crank length and tighten the yellow knobs. The cranks can be positioned either in the same
direction or 180 degrees opposite of one another.
Set the resistance level.
Sit or stand so that your shoulders are approximately the same height as the grip spindle.
Begin rotating. Be sure to rotate in a controlled manner.
FOR USE AS A BIKE
Place the CMXErg+ on the floor in front of your seat:
Make sure foot pedals (not included) are attached securely.
Set the crank length and tighten the yellow knobs.
Set the resistance level.
To find the appropriate pedaling position for you:
Sit and place the ball of your foot on the center of the pedal.
Your knee should remain slightly bent when the pedal is in the farthest position away from you.
You should be able to complete the entire pedal rotation without locking the knees and without
dramatically shifting your weight from side to side.
Begin pedaling in a controlled manner.
NOTE: If the pedaling unit is too close or too far away for your pedaling comfort then you will need to re-adjust the
position by getting out of your chair and carefully moving the CMXErg+ until you find your optimal position.
DISPLAY CONSOLE
The display console of the CMXErg+ serves to provide you with basic feedback of your workout.
NOTE: Always use a light touch when pressing the key on the console. Never press the key with anything other than
your fingers. Sharp objects such as ball point pens, keys or tools could damage the key and are considered misuse for
warranty purposes.
To turn on the display: Either press the key or begin rotating. The display will turn off after 3 minutes of no pedaling.

GUIDELINES FOR EFFECTIVE EXERCISE
Often, the toughest—but most important step—of any exercise program is simply getting started. By purchasing the
CMXErg+, you have already achieved what many people are still struggling with—making the commitment to leading a
more fulfilling life by including a program of physical activity.
CONGRATULATIONS on accomplishing the first step towards a healthier and more satisfying future!
SETTING A GOAL AND DEFINING OBJECTIVES
An important step in a successful exercise program is to set achievable goals and objectives. Regardless of your current
physical condition, you need to establish a workable plan to reach your fitness goals. Begin by asking yourself a few
basic questions. Are you just beginning an exercise program and wishing to change your lifestyle from sedentary to
physically active, or are your goals to enhance your current fitness levels? What are your primary objectives? Is your
program to be geared toward losing weight, increasing aerobic capacity, or rehabilitation?
In order to ensure that you fully receive all benefits associated with a sound exercise program, you should first identify
any risk factors that may influence the design of your exercise program. Your health care professional should be the
first step in identifying risk factors that may need to be addressed in establishing a program. Consider having a trained
fitness professional help you in developing an individualized program that is enjoyable, easily maintained, but still
challenging enough to achieve your desired results.
Remember that your greatest benefit will come from an increased sense of well-being that comes along with a lifestyle
that includes physical activity. People who have already made physical fitness a part of their daily lives will confirm that
the benefits of including physical activity in your life far outweigh the inconvenience and time spent.
Any time you spend on your exercise program will reward you with increased energy, reduced stress, a greater ability
to focus and concentrate, and improved self-confidence. You and the people you share your life with will reap the
rewards of your new lifestyle.
FLEXIBILITY TRAINING
Achieving and maintaining an adequate range of motion should always be included in a comprehensive exercise
program. Sufficient flexibility will increase your enjoyment and maximize the effectiveness of exercising on the
CMXErg+. It will also reduce discomfort while working out and reduce the risk of injury. Always warm-up before
stretching. Warm-up should include light activity to increase both your heart rate and body temperature. Increasing
your body temperature allows you to stretch muscles more effectively and safely. Attempting to stretch a cold muscle
is counterproductive and can lead to an injury that may interfere with the continuation of your fitness program and can
postpone reaching your goals.
WARMING UP
A good warm-up is one of the most important and most frequently overlooked part of an exercise regimen. Without a
proper warm-up, the muscles of the body are far more prone to injury. A good warm-up prepares the body for the
stress you will place your muscles under during your workout and will decrease your chances of becoming injured.
Muscles perform better when they are warmer than normal body temperature. Always take the time to warm-up
properly. It will decrease the discomfort during exercise and will help you get the most out of your workout.
While a 5 to 10 minute warm-up is adequate for some people, others may need a longer warm-up period.
8
FREQUENCY
How often should you exercise? The number of times per week that you engage in strength or aerobic exercise
depends largely on what your goals are and your current fitness level. People new to an active lifestyle are more likely
to keep with it if they start gradually. Beginners might consider a weekly schedule that includes days off. Work towards
a goal of including exercise at least 3 to 5 days per week.
INTENSITY
How hard should you exercise? The intensity of your workout will reflect your goals and your current fitness level. If
you are unsure of your current fitness level, start at a low intensity and gradually increase it over time.
DURATION
How long should you exercise? You should aim to complete 15 to 60 minutes of activity per day. Keep in mind that this
does not include warm-up or cool-down. But you can with the CMXErg+ do several short(5 - 10 minutes) sessions and
gain the value of the total.
COOL-DOWN
Just as the warm-up is essential for preparing your muscles for vigorous exercise, the cool-down is equally important.
Over 5 to 10 minutes, gradually lower your heart rate by slowly decreasing your exercise intensity.
Taking the time to warm-up and cool-down properly will decrease the level of discomfort you will experience when you
tackle your next workout. More importantly, though, proper warm-up and cool- down segments will greatly decrease
your risk of injury.
Most importantly: Stick with your program! You already accomplished the hard part. You made the commitment and
you researched, chose, and bought the equipment to make your goals become reality.
Now it's up to you. Remember that all of the guidelines you just read are just that- guidelines. If a 30 minute workout is
too much for your current fitness level, choose a duration that you can complete and gradually increase your time. Any
increase in the amount of physical activity over what you are currently doing, is a step forward.
Remember that even the most conditioned and dedicated athletes have days in which they slip from their training
plans, make poor nutritional choices, or quit in the middle of a workout. If you find yourself in such a situation, think
about the progress you had made previously, reevaluate your training plan, and recommit to your goals.
