General Information
Rea d th is Owne r's Man ual sa fety ins truc tions
thoroughly to familiarize yourself with the BodyCraft
VR500 before using it.
Your BodyCraft VR500 is made of the highest quality
materials, it is still important that you take care of your
BodyCraft VR500 on a regular basis.
T h e B o d y C r a f t V R5 0 0 i s de s i gn e d f o r Residential
and Li g h t Commercial use.
Before beginning any exercise program, consult your
physician. He or she can help evaluate your present
fitness level and determine the exercise program that is
the most appropriate for your age and physical conditi on.
Your BodyCraft VR500 is for indoor use only and should
NOT be used or stored in dam p areas. Wipe all
perspiration from your BodyCraft VR500 after each use.
The BodyCraft VR500 has been tested and certified
according to EN957-1 and EN957-7 Class S.A.
If you experience any pain or tightness in your chest,
irregular heartbeat, shortness of breath, faintness, or
unusual discomfort upon exercising, stop and consult a
physici an.
For safety, inspect your BodyCraft VR500 on a regular
basis. When used in a light commercial environment
safety check and clean every day. When used in a
domestic environment safety check and clean before use.
Adult supervision is required at all times when children
are on or near the BodyCraft VR500. Unsupervised
children should keep away from the equipment at all
tim es.
Components most Susceptible to Wear
It is important to keep your purchase receipt !
You may be asked to produce it to authenticate your Warranty.
SEAT ROLLERS - ALUMINUM BEAM [part#001,118]
DO NOT attempt to modify or alter your BodyCraft VR500 as
it will be considered tampering and will invalidate your warranty.
Keep fingers and limbs, loose clothing and hair away
from movi ng parts.
Before each workout on your BodyCraft VR500 we
advise that a Precautionary Safety Check is wise. All
equipment should be Safety Checked for wear and
d a m a g e . I f y o u fi n d a n y d a m a g e o r de f e c t iv e
comp onents STOP using the BodyCraft VR500
I M M E D I AT E L Y. R e p l a c e d e f e c t i v e c o m p o n e n t s
immediately and/or keep the equipment out of use until
repaired. For repair help - see General Information on
this page.
Care should be taken when getting ON or OFF your AirMagnetic Rower. Please follow the instructions on page
4.
Wear comfortable, lightweight, well-ventilated clothing
to help sweat evaporate. Make sure your shoes fit you
properly and provide external and lateral stability support
to prevent ankle and knee injuries. Wear cross-training,
walking or running shoes.
It's very important not to become dehydrated. Your body
needs water lost during exercise.
Don't forget to warm-up and cool-down. Limbering up
"cold" muscles and cooling down after exercise are
important injury-prevention measures.
Use only the accessory attachments recommended by
the manufacturer. DO NOT attempt to modify or alter
your BodyCraft VR500 as injury may result.
These parts can be damaged by dust and dirt and should
be cleaned regularly. By keeping the A LUM INUM BEAM
[001] clean, you will prolong the life of the SEAT ROLLERS
[118] and ALUMINUM BEAM [001]. Using a damp cloth
wipe the top of the ALUMINUM BEAM [001].Pay special
attention to the outside edges. Check and remove any
black spots.
DRIVE STRAP [part#709]
The DRIVE STRAP [709] is made of high quality nylon
webbing which is extremely strong. It is important to
inspect the DRIVE STRAP [709] for wear. Check for
nicks, cuts and fraying that may weaken the integrity.
Also check that the stitching at the handle bar end is
intact. If any of these symptoms are found discontinue
use immediately and contact your dealer for a
replacement DRIVE STRAP [709].
FOOT REST Assembly
[part#014,027,143,147,154 ,314A,367,386A,710]
In the unlikely event that your BodyCraft VR500 needs
servicing, repairs or something is missing or broken then
contact your dealer as soon as possible. They should be
able to help you immediately with any and all problems
you have. You can also contact us directly at 800-990-5556
or email us at [email protected]
Please continue to read the Owner's Manual and all
safety instructions thoroughly to familiarize yourself with
the BodyCraft VR500 before using it.
D ES I G N ER S NO T E : T h e re t u r n s p r in g o n th e
BodyCraft VR500 Rower has been calibrated with the
lightest amount of return force. The spring tension used
in the recoil insures for proper rowing exercise
technique and is sufficient to recoil the DRIVE STRAP
ASSEMBLY [709] regardless of the return speed of the
handle to the start positi on.
This gives the user an improved level of exercise by
increasing the benefit to the hamstring group of muscles
at the rear of the thigh. This muscle group is called upon
when the user moves the seat forward.
We have faithfully duplicated the “normal” rowing action
one would get when rowing on water where the oar is not
pull ed forward.
The FOOT REST Assembly has many moving parts. It
is essential that these parts be in good condition at all
times. Check that the FOOT STRAP BUCKLE firmly holds
the FOOT STRAP. Check that the HEEL REST [143]
HEEL REST HOLDER[147] self locking system is
working correctly. Make sure that all Bolts are tight and
fi rm . If an y de fe ct s are fo u nd di s co n tin u e u s e
immediately and contact your dealer for replacement
parts.
All FASTENERS [Nuts, Bolts, and Screws]
Regularly inspect all Nuts, Bolts and Screws to insure
they are tight and firm.

Pairing the VR500 Handlebar Control with Computer
In the rare event that your VR500 loses its wireless pairing between the handlebar control and computer, you will need to perform the following
steps to create a new, unique, wireless pairing between the handlebar control and the computer. Please follow all steps very carefully.
We suggest using two people to perform the steps as the battery needs to be inserted into the handlebar controller at the same time the power
adapter is plugged into the rower. This will create a unique PAIRING between the handlebar controller and the computer.
Step 1 - Turn handlebar upside down and rest it in the handlebar holder. If the battery cover is secured by 2 screws, remove them with a phillips
head screw driver.
Step 2 - Remove battery cover. (If battery is inside, remove battery)
Step 3 - Insert the power supply pack into a nearby 110v outlet.
Step 4 - With the power supply plugged into the nearest outlet, AT THE SAME TIME, one person should
slide the battery (positive + side up,) making sure the top prongs are on top of the positive side) into the
battery compartment while the other person plugs the power supply cord into the rower. You will see the
computer screen light up for 1-2 seconds before switching to the USER screen.
Step 5 - Wait 5-10 seconds before pressing the up or down arrows
on your handlebar controller. At this point your handlebar controller
should have its own unique link to the computer and should be
functioning correctly.
Step 6 - Replace the battery cover and insert the two phillips head
screws into the designated holes. Flip handlebar controller upright
and the pairing process is complete.
