The key to reaping these benefits is to develop an exercise habit. Your new home gym will help you eliminate
obstacles that prevent you from exercising. Inclement weather and darkness won't interfere with your
workout when you use your home gym in the comfort of your home. This guide provides you with basic
information for using and enjoying your new machine.

PRECAUTIONS
• Improved Muscle Tone and Strength
• Increased Daily Energy Levels
• A Healthier Heart
• Weight Loss
The American Heart Association recommends that you exercise at least 3 to 4 days per week to maintain
cardiovascular 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!
ASSEMBLY
Here are just a few of the health benefits of exercise:
HOW OFTEN? (Frequency of Workouts)
HOW LONG? (Duration of Workouts)
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 five 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. A workout time of 48 minutes or more is recommended for best weight loss results.

IMPORTANT
PRECAUTIONS
and sustaining an exercise program! Your home gym is a tremendously effective tool for achieving your
personal fitness goals. Regular use of your home gym can improve the quality of your life in so many
ways.
Always consult your physician before beginning an exercise program.
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 (using the grip
pulse handlebars or a wireless chest transmitter - may be sold separately), and the second is by evaluating your
perceived exertion level (this is simpler than it sounds!).

WARNING
SEAT ASSEMBLY PIN
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.
General Strength Training Guidelines
• It is recommended that you perform at least 5-10 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.

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

What is Target Heart Rate Zone?
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.

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:

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.
