If the heart rate monitor does not function when positioned as described, move it slightly lower or higher on your chest. • If heart rate readings are not displayed until you begin perspiring, rewet the electrode areas. • For the console to display heart rate readings, you must be within arm’s length of the console. • If there is a battery cover on the back of the sensor, replace the battery with a new battery of the same type. Pull the sensor away from your body a few inches and locate the two electrode areas, which are covered by shallow ridges. Using saline solution such as saliva or contact lens solution, wet the electrode areas. Then, return the sensor to a position against your chest. • The heart rate monitor is designed to work with people who have normal heart rhythms. Heart rate reading problems may be caused by medical conditions such as premature ventricular contractions (pvcs), tachycardia bursts, and arrhythmia. CARE AND MAINTENANCE • The operation of the heart rate monitor can be affected by magnetic interference from high power lines or other sources. If you suspect that magnetic interference is causing a problem, try relocating the fitness equipment. • Thoroughly dry the sensor with a soft towel after each use. Moisture may keep the sensor activated, shortening the life of the battery. • Store the heart rate monitor in a warm, dry place. Do not store the heart rate monitor in a plastic bag or other container that may trap moisture. 15 HOW TO USE THE ELLIPTICAL HOW TO PLUG IN THE POWER ADAPTER HOW TO LEVEL THE ELLIPTICAL IMPORTANT: If the elliptical has been exposed to cold temperatures, allow it to warm to room temperature before you plug in the power adapter. If you do not do this, you may damage the console displays or other electronic components. If the elliptical rocks slightly on your floor during use, turn one or both of the leveling feet beneath the rear of the frame until the rocking motion is eliminated. Plug the power adapter into the receptacle on the front of the elliptical. Then, plug the power adapter into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed in accordance with all local codes and ordinances. Leveling Feet HOW TO ADJUST THE STRIDE OF THE ELLIPTICAL To adjust the stride of the elliptical, first loosen one of the adjustment knobs and pull it outward until the adjustment arm pivots freely. Next, pivot the adjustment arm until the adjustment knob is aligned with one of the holes in the handlebar leg, and release the adjustment knob. Pivot the adjustment arm back and forth slightly to make sure that the adjustment pin is engaged in one of the holes in the handlebar leg. Then, tighten the adjustment knob. Adjust the other adjustment knob in the same way. Make sure that both adjustment knobs are in the same position. HOW TO MOVE THE ELLIPTICAL Due to the size and weight of the elliptical, moving it requires two persons. Stand in front of the elliptical, hold the upright, and place one foot against one of the front wheels. Pull on the upright and have a second person lift the frame until the elliptical will roll on the front wheels. Carefully move the elliptical to the desired location, and then lower it to the floor. Holes Pull on the upright Handlebar Leg Adjustment Pin Place your foot here Lift here 16 Adjustment Arm Adjustment Knob HOW TO EXERCISE ON THE ELLIPTICAL To mount the elliptical, hold the handlebars and step onto the pedal that is in the lower position. Then, step onto the other pedal. Push the pedals until they begin to move with a continuous motion. Note: The pedals can turn in either direction. It is recommended that you turn the pedals in the direction shown by the arrow; however, for variety, you can turn the pedals in the opposite direction. Handlebars To dismount the elliptical, wait until the pedals come to a complete stop. Note: The elliptical does not have a free wheel; the pedals will continue to move until the flywheel stops. When the pedals are stationary, step off the higher pedal first. Then, step off the lower pedal.

However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures: • • • • Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna. Increase the separation between the equipment and the receiver. Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected. Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help. FCC CAUTION: To assure continued compliance, use only shielded interface cables when connecting to computer or peripheral devices. Changes or modifications not expressly approved by the party responsible for compliance could void the user’s authority to operate this equipment. 26 MAINTENANCE AND TROUBLESHOOTING Inspect and tighten all parts of the elliptical regularly. Replace any worn parts immediately. Next, locate the Reed Switch (86). Turn the Pulley (53) until a Magnet (88) is aligned with the Reed Switch. To clean the elliptical, use a damp cloth and a small amount of mild soap. IMPORTANT: To avoid damage to the console, keep liquids away from the console and keep the console out of direct sunlight. 86 88 67 CONSOLE TROUBLESHOOTING If the console does not display your heart rate when you hold the handgrip heart rate monitor, or if the displayed heart rate appears to be too high or too low, see step 5 on page 20. 7 If the console does not display your heart rate when you use the chest heart rate monitor, see TROUBLESHOOTING on page 15. 93 53 17 If a replacement power adapter is needed, call the telephone number on the cover of this manual. IMPORTANT: To avoid damaging the console, use only a manufacturer-supplied regulated power adapter. HOW TO LEVEL THE ELLIPTICAL If the elliptical rocks slightly on your floor during use, see HOW TO LEVEL THE ELLIPTICAL on page 16. HOW TO ADJUST THE REED SWITCH If the console does not display correct feedback, the reed switch should be adjusted. Loosen, but do not remove, the indicated M4 x 16mm Screw (67). Slide the Reed Switch (86) slightly closer to or away from the Magnet (88), and then retighten the Screw. Then, rock the Pulley (53) forward and backward so that the Magnet passes the Reed Switch repeatedly. See EXPLODED DRAWING C on page 35. First, remove the Right Large Rail Cover (93) and the Right Rail Small Rail Cover (7). Then, remove all of the Screws (67, 73) from the Right Outer and Inner Shields (17, 19); there are two sizes of Screws in the Right Outer and Inner Shields—note which size of Screw you remove from each hole. Then, gently remove the Right Outer Shield. Repeat these actions until the console displays correct feedback. When the reed switch is correctly adjusted, reattach the right outer and inner shields and the right small and large rail covers. 27 EXERCISE GUIDELINES Burning Fat—To burn fat effectively, you must exercise at a low intensity level for a sustained period of time. During the first few minutes of exercise, your body uses carbohydrate calories for energy. Only after the first few minutes of exercise does your body begin to use stored fat calories for energy. If your goal is to burn fat, adjust the intensity of your exercise until your heart rate is near the lowest number in your training zone. For maximum fat burning, exercise with your heart rate near the middle number in your training zone. WARNING: Before beginning this or any exercise program, consult your physician. This is especially important for persons over age 35 or persons with pre-existing health problems. The heart rate monitor is not a medical device. Various factors may affect the accuracy of heart rate readings. The heart rate monitor is intended only as an exercise aid in determining heart rate trends in general. Aerobic Exercise—If your goal is to strengthen your cardiovascular system, you must perform aerobic exercise, which is activity that requires large amounts of oxygen for prolonged periods of time. For aerobic exercise, adjust the intensity of your exercise until your heart rate is near the highest number in your training zone. These guidelines will help you to plan your exercise program. For detailed exercise information, obtain a reputable book or consult your physician. Remember, proper nutrition and adequate rest are essential for successful results. WORKOUT GUIDELINES EXERCISE INTENSITY Warming Up—Start with 5 to 10 minutes of stretching and light exercise. A warm-up increases your body temperature, heart rate, and circulation in preparation for exercise. Whether your goal is to burn fat or to strengthen your cardiovascular system, exercising at the proper intensity is the key to achieving results. You can use your heart rate as a guide to find the proper intensity level. The chart below shows recommended heart rates for fat burning and aerobic exercise. Training Zone Exercise—Exercise for 20 to 30 minutes with your heart rate in your training zone. (During the first few weeks of your exercise program, do not keep your heart rate in your training zone for longer than 20 minutes.) Breathe regularly and deeply as you exercise—never hold your breath. Cooling Down—Finish with 5 to 10 minutes of stretching. Stretching increases the flexibility of your muscles and helps to prevent post-exercise problems. EXERCISE FREQUENCY To find the proper intensity level, find your age at the bottom of the chart (ages are rounded off to the nearest ten years). The three numbers listed above your age define your “training zone.” The lowest number is the heart rate for fat burning, the middle number is the heart rate for maximum fat burning, and the highest number is the heart rate for aerobic exercise. To maintain or improve your condition, complete three workouts each week, with at least one day of rest between workouts. After a few months of regular exercise, you may complete up to five workouts each week, if desired. Remember, the key to success is to make exercise a regular and enjoyable part of your everyday life. 28 SUGGESTED STRETCHES The correct form for several basic stretches is shown at the right. Move slowly as you stretch; never bounce. 1. Toe Touch Stretch Stand with your knees bent slightly and slowly bend forward from your hips.
