1.2 Personal safety
+ Before you start using the equipment, you should consult your physician that this type of
exercise is suitable for you from a health perspective. Particularly affected are persons who:
have a hereditary disposition to high blood pressure or heart disease, are over the age of 45,
smoke, have high cholesterol values, are overweight and/or have not exercised regularly in
the past year.
+ Please note that working out excessively can seriously damage your health.
+ The equipment may only be used for its intended purpose; this means for power training by
adults.
+ Any other usage is prohibited and potentially dangerous. The contract partner cannot be
held liable for damage resulting from improper use.
+ The equipment may not be used by several persons at the same time.
+ Children should not be allowed unsupervised access to the equipment.
+ Before starting your training, make yourself familiar with all of the equipment‘s functions
and setting options. Have an expert explain the correct usage of the product to you.
+ Make sure that nobody is in the range of motion of the equipment while exercising.
+ Keep your hands, feet and other body parts, hair, clothing, jewelry and other objects well
clear of moving parts.
+ During use, wear suitable sports clothing rather than loose or baggy clothing. When
selecting sports shoes, think about the suitability of the sole – preferably this should be
made of rubber or other non-slip materials. Shoes with heels, leather soles, studs or spikes
are not suitable. Never work out in bare feet.
+ It is also important to take note of the information given in the workout instructions for
creating a workout plan.
+ At the first signs of weakness, nausea, dizziness, pain, difficulty in breathing or other
abnormal symptoms, stop your workout immediately and, if necessary, consult your
physician.
+ Handicap people must have a medical certificate before they may use the equipment and
should be closely monitored when they use any training equipment.
+ Before each training session, check all cables for any possible damage. Immediately replace
defective cables and do not use the equipment until it has been repaired. Also pay attention
to any material fatigue.
+ Never let go of the handlebars or grips as long as there is resistance in order to avoid
crushing and similar injuries.
+ Make sure that the cables are always in the wheel guide. If the cables are stuck while you are
training, stop training immediately and check the cable run.
+ If you adjust the seat, make sure that it fully locks in its new position, because otherwise it
may slide and lead to injuries.

1.3 Set-up place
+ The equipment should only be used indoors, in a sufficiently heated and dry area (ambient
temperature between 10°C and 35°C). The equipment should not be used outdoors or in
rooms with high humidity (over 70%) like swimming pools. The equipment should only be
stored in surroundings with an ambient temperature between 5°C and 45°C.
+ The training room should be well ventilated during training and not be exposed to any
draughts.
+ Choose a location in which to place the equipment such that there is enough free space/
clearance to the front, the rear and to the sides of the equipment (at least 1.50 m).
Furthermore, the equipment should not be set up in main entrances or on escape routes.
+ No objects of any type should be inserted into the openings of the equipment.
+ The equipment should be placed on a level and solid surface, any unevenness in the floor
should be leveled out.
+ A floor protective mat / equipment underlay can help to protect high-quality floor coverings
(parquet, laminate, cork, carpets) from dents and sweat and can help to level out slight
unevenness.
+ Store your equipment where children cannot come into contact with it and there is not
much traffic.

4 WORKOUT INSTRUCTIONS
The Taurus UltraForce is a multi-functional multi-gym for achieving many training targets.
Muscle toning and tightening are possible as well as an improvement of strength-endurance
and an effective support in losing weight. We have compiled some important training tips for
you so you can achieve your training targets as effectively, safely and lastingly as possible.
4.1 General training instructions
IMPORTANT Please read through this section before you begin training.
IMPORTANT: If you are older than 35 years and have not trained for several years, consult your
physician and they will recommend an assessment test. Your physician can support you in
determining the target heart rate zone corresponding to your age and fitness level as well.
You should also consult your physician in the event of:
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol values
– Asthma
– Heart problems
- (Death through) strokes or heart attacks in your family history
- Frequent cases of dizziness
- Extreme breathing problems after slight strain
- Arthritis or other bone problems
- Serious muscle/ligament/or tendon problems
- Other known or presumed illnesses
- If you feel pain or tension in the breast, feel an irregular heart beat or are short of breath, stop
training immediately. Consult your physician before you continue.
- Pregnancy
- Balance impairments
- Taking medicine that affects your heart rate.
Warm-up
We recommend starting every training session by warming up in order to prevent injuries
and to maximize performance. Your warm-up phase prepares your muscles softly for the load.
Begin with five to 10 minutes of soft exercises (e. g., walking) that gradually increase your heart
rate and loosen up your muscles. The warm-up phase should be aerobic and require a slight,
unconstrained range of movement. This should be followed by five to 10 minutes of stretching
(see page 38 in these instructions or in the included training instructions). Never bring your
body beyond the point of soft tension or strain. Make sure to have soft, rhythmic, controlled
movements.
33
Clothing
All training clothing should sit loosely and comfortably (for enough freedom of movement)
and give self-confidence. Never wear rubber and synthetic clothing; such materials impair
the evaporation of sweat and may cause a dangerous increase in body temperature. Wear
comfortable, supportive sport shoes with anti-slip soles like running or aerobic shoes.
Motivation tips
1. Create a plan and write it down.
2. Set realistic goals and remind yourself of them often.
3. Keep a journal in order to record your progress and update it regularly. See tables in these
instructions.
4. Write down your weight and/or body fat percentage measurings in the journal.
5. Get support and participation from family and friends.
6. Keep other people up to date about your success.
7. Avoid injuries through adjustments including warm up and cool down phases as a part of
your daily workout.
8. Reward yourself in regular intervals for a job well done!
4.2 Exercise and safety notes
1.) Carefully and completely go through these user instructions and the included training
instructions before you start a training program. Remember to follow the instructions exactly.
These were developed with your health and safety in mind.
2.) Execute all exercises in a slow and controlled manner. Execute all exercises at the speed
specified in the training instructions in order to achieve the best results. Training at a high pace
is not recommended and may impair your safety and results.
3.) You may not be able to completely finish all sets and repetitions at first. If you feel fatigue in
your muscles or if you cannot train in a good condition and with the corresponding techniques,
lower the resistance level or take a short break and cool down.
4.) Record the number of sets and repetitions that you can initially do for each exercise. You will
be surprised how fast you can make progress. Within a few weeks, it will be possible for you to
execute all sets and repetitions at your selected resistance level.
5.) Take it slow. If you are tired and emaciated after training, you are training at a level that is too
high. You can achieve good results with training that challenges you, but does not cause pain
or excessive tiredness.
6.) Make sure you know how to execute safe and appropriate training. These safety measures
are for your benefit and you should follow them exactly in order to maximize the effectiveness
of your training routine.
7.) You will feel the results of your training with this equipment within one to two weeks. Pay
attention to a better posture and you will find more power and effectiveness in your muscles.

4.3 Exercise manual
A detailed description of all exercises can be found in the included training instructions.
4.4 Equipment settings
Set resistance with glide-n-lock technology
The resistance setting is done quickly. Simply pull up the glide-n-lock slider to unlock it from its
current position. Hold the slider up and move it into the desired weight setting and then let go
of the slider. Make sure that the locking mechanism has locked in the new resistance position.
Make sure that the resistance indicator is red.
Seat adjustment
The UltraForce seat allows for two sitting heights. If you are tall, you may prefer the lower
position in order to reach the complete range of movement of the exercises with the lat tower. If
you are smaller, you may prefer the higher position in order to be able to grab the lat bar easier.
You can choose. If you would like to change the position, remove the long socket pin and pull
the seat up in order to unlock it from the position pins. Set it to the new position and place the
seat back on the position pins. As soon as it is at the desired position, insert the long socket pin
again to lock it.
Do not use the seat if the long socket pin is not inserted.
Adjust leg piece
The lower foam upholstery on the leg extension tube has four positions. These are adjusted to
the user’s leg length and comfort.
In order to change the foam upholstery, simply remove the leg bar cap at the end of the
upholstery. Remove the foam cushion on the side. Now push the tube and remaining upholstery
from the leg assembly hole. Set it to the new desired position. Attach the leg bar cap and the
first foam upholstery again. Make sure that the leg bar cap is installed securely again.
UltraForce positions of the pulleys
The UltraForce equipment uses a simple system of cables, pulleys and hooks in order to be able
to execute over 100 exercises. Below you can see a diagram that shows you the possibilities for
the mobile positions of the pulleys and accessory hooks.

our customer service as indicated. We are happy to help you by phone via our service hotline.
Error descriptions
Your fitness equipment is developed for long-term, high-quality training. However, should a
problem arise, please first read the operating instructions. For further assistance, please contact
your contract partner or call our service hotline. To ensure your problem is solved as quickly as
possible, please describe the defect as exactly as possible.
In addition to the statutory warranty, we provide a warranty for every fitness equipment
purchased from us according to the following provisions.
Your statutory rights are not affected.
Warrantee
The warrantee is the first/original buyer and/or any person who received a newly purchased
product as a gift from the original buyer.
Warranty periods
The following warranty periods begin on delivery of the fitness equipment.
Model
Use
Full warranty
UltraForce
Home use
24 months
Repair costs
According to our choice, there will either be a repair, a replacement of individual damaged
parts or a complete replacement. Spare parts, that have to be mounted while assembling the
equipment, have to be replaced by the warrantee personally and are not a part of repair. After
the expiration of the warranty period for repair costs, a pure parts warranty applies, which does
not include the repair, installation and delivery costs.
The terms of use are defined as follows:
• Home use: solely for private use in private households up to 3 hours per day
• Semi-professional use: up to 6 hours per day (e. g. rehabilitation centers, hotels, clubs, company gyms)
• Professional use: more than 6 hours per day (e. g. commercial gyms)

Warranty service
Within the warranty period, equipment which develops faults as a result of material or
manufacturing defects, will be repaired or replaced at our discretion. Ownership of equipment
or parts of equipment which have been replaced is transferred to us. The warranty period is not
extended nor does a new warranty period begin following repair or replacement under the
warranty.
Warranty conditions
For the warranty to be valid, the following steps must be taken:
Please contact our customer service by email or phone. If the product under warranty has to be
sent in for repair, the seller bears costs. After expiry of the warranty, the buyer bears the costs
of transport and insurance. If the fault is covered by our warranty, you will receive a new or
repaired equipment in return.
Warranty claims are invalid in case of damage resulting from:
• misuse or improper handling
• environmental influences (moisture, heat, electrical surge, dust, etc.)
• failure to follow the current safety measures for the equipment
• failure to follow the operating instructions
• use of force (e. g. hitting, kicking, falling)
• interventions which were not carried out by one of our authorized service centers
• unauthorized repair attempts
Proof of purchase and serial number
Please make sure that you are able to provide the appropriate receipt when claiming on your
warranty. So that we can clearly identify the model of your equipment, and for the purposes of
our quality control, you will need to give the serial number of your equipment, when contacting
the service team. Where possible please have your serial number and your customer number
ready when you call our service hotline. It will help us to deal with your request swiftly.
If you have trouble finding the serial number on your fitness equipment, our service team is at
your disposal to offer further information.
Service outside the warranty period
We are also happy to issue an individual cost estimate if there is a problem with your fitness
equipment after the warranty has expired, or in cases which do not fall under the terms of
the warranty, e. g. normal wear and tear. Please contact our customer service team to find a
quick and cost-effective solution to your problem. In such a case you will be responsible for the
delivery costs.
Communication
Many problems can be solved just by speaking to us as your specialist supplier. We know how
important it is to you as a user of the fitness equipment to have problems solved quickly and
simply, so you can enjoy working out with minimal interruption. For that reason, we also want
to resolve your queries quickly and in a straightforward manner. Thus, please always keep your
customer number and the serial number of the faulty equipment handy.
