WATTS. Indicates the power or output (level of effort) being produced during exercise.
WATTS (Average). After a workout is ended the console displays your average watts for the entire
workout.
3.7 MEASURING YOUR HEART RATE
WARNING – Heart rate monitoring systems may be inaccurate. Over exercising may result in serious
injury or death. If you feel faint or dizzy, stop exercising immediately.
If your wireless heart rate readings are not functioning or are erratic please refer to Section 6.3, Heart
Rate Troubleshooting.
Your Bodyguard Fitness rower can detect your heart rate if you wear a compatible heart rate chest strap
(5kHz) that wirelessly transmits a signal to a receiver in the machine.
When the equipment detects your heart rate a small indicator begins to flash on the display and after a
short period of time if the reading is consistent a value will appear.
Before you begin a workout ensure you know your approximate Maximum Heart Rate (MHR).
An approximate of your Maximum Heart Rate is calculated as follows.
11
ROWERS – OWNER’S MANUAL
MHR = 220 – Age.
To determine your recommended heart rate level and help select the correct type of exercise program you
wish to follow, see the graphic below.
WARNING: Your heart rate should never exceed 90% of your Maximum Heart Rate.
On the Programs List, you will find several Heart Rate Training Programs whose parameters are based on
the above chart. These programs allow you to pre-set a specific heart rate (or zone) to target during
exercise. Throughout the workout, the program monitors your heart rate and makes changes to the
equipment’s settings to help keep you exercising at your target heart rate.
3.8 HEART RATE RECOVERY TEST
The Heart Rate Recovery Test is a protocol that tests the heart’s ability to recover from exercise, which is
a key component of heart health and general fitness. The rate of the heart’s recovery is scaled from F1.0
to F6.0 with F1.0 being the best result and F6.0 being the worst result. In order to get a more accurate
rate, users should complete the test after intense exercise. Once the Recovery button is pressed the user
should sit still and relax and the console will monitor the range and speed that the user’s pulse (chest
strap required) recovers for a period of 1 minute. After 1 minute is up, the result is displayed on the
console.
The test may be cancelled at any time by pressing the RESET button.
12
4 EXERCISE PROGRAMS
A program is a series of preset resistance levels that is controlled by the console. Many programs allow
the user to choose different levels, which will change the predetermined intensity of the entire workout
profile. The programs monitor exercise progress and statistics while adding fun, interest and variety to a
workout. The majority of programs are broken into segments that are equal to the total exercise goal
(time, distance, calories or strokes) divided by the total number of horizontal segments on the profile,
which for the rower is 16. For example, a 16-minute exercise program will consist of 16 one-minute time
segments whereas a 32-minute exercise will consist of 16 two-minute segments.
4.1
PROGRAM CATEGORIES
The W-45 console has 22 different programs sorted into 6 categories. Each category provides a different
type of training that affects the body in a different way.
The 6 different program categories are Manual, Race, Profile, Watt, HRC & User
When at the Main Menu the 6 program categories will scroll on the alphanumeric screen.
To select a category scroll through the list using the UP/DOWN keys and press enter.
Program Setup Information:
After selecting a program you may choose a goal or number of goals you would like to achieve in that
workout from Time, Distance, Calories & Strokes. If you wish to enter a value for a goal use the
Up/Down keys. If you do not wish to enter a value for a goal just press the Enter key while the dashes
are on display and move on to the next parameter. You can select a value for each parameter within the
following ranges.
Time: 5-99 minutes, Distance: 100-9990 meters, Calories: 10-9990, Strokes: 10-9990
You may choose several goals and the workout will finish whenever one of those goals is achieved.
Some programs include the option of choosing a level of profile intensity. To change the intensity use the
Up/Down keys and the profile on the display will adjust accordingly. Note that you can change the entire
profile level during the workout if your original choice is too easy or difficult.
If you stop rowing during a workout the console will go into PAUSE mode after 5 seconds inactivity. If
you do not recommence rowing or press any buttons for a period of 1 minute, the console switches to
sleep mode and resets.
4.1.1 JUSTGO (QUICK)
The JustGo program is a quick start program that begins automatically when you start rowing or if you
press the Start button when at the Main Menu. No workout goals are inputted prior to beginning the
workout so the console starts counting the workout parameters upwards as soon as the rowing begins.
During the JustGo program the user can press the “UP/DOWN” buttons to increase or decrease the
resistance intensity.
13
4.1.2 MANUAL
The Manual Program allows users to set a workout goal (Time, Distance, Calories or Strokes) prior to
commencing the workout, which is the sole difference between it and the JustGo (Quick) program. The
user controls the resistance intensity at all times during the workout and can press the “UP/DOWN”
buttons to increase or decrease the resistance intensity.
Manual Program
4.1.3 RACE
The Race Program allows you to preset the speed of an opposition rower (PC) and then compete
against them over a desired distance. The Race program provides excellent motivation as the console
displays flashing dots to represent the rowers as they race cross the screen during the workout.
YOU
PC

4.1.4 PROFILE
The Profile Program category consists of 12 preset workout profiles that automatically change the
resistance intensity throughout the program. The user can select a desired goal for the workout, which
will be equally divided up into the 16 segments on the profile. For example, if a user chooses a workout
goal of 32 minutes then each segment will represent 2 minutes of the workout. Alternatively, if the user
chooses a workout goal of 800 strokes then each of the 16 segments will represent 50 strokes.

Profile 12
4.1.5 WATTS
The Watts Program allows the user to preset a level of effort to maintain for the entire workout. During
the program the resistance intensity is automatically adjusted based on the stroke rate and power to
ensure the user maintains the desired level until the workout goal is met. The Watts program adjusts the
resistance intensity in the same way the HRC program does except it uses the Watts parameter as
opposed to the Pulse parameter to determine when to make intensity changes. This makes the Watts
program a great alternative to HRC training for users who do not have or like wearing a wireless Heart
Rate chest strap.
4.1.6 HEART RATE CONTROL
The Heart Rate Control (HRC) Program allows the user to preset a desired pulse level (Target Heart
Rate) to maintain throughout the entire workout. During the program the resistance intensity is
automatically adjusted to ensure the Target Heart Rate is maintained until the workout goal is met. The
user’s pulse is monitored via a wireless heart rate chest strap transmitter, which must send a continuous
signal throughout the program or NO PULSE will appear after a short period if no pulse is detected and
resistance intensity changes will not be able to be made.
When setting up the HRC program the user must enter their age (10-99) so an approximate Maximum
Heart Rate (see Section 3.7) can be calculated. Then the user must input their Target Heart Rate for the
workout, which may be selected as a percentage of their Maximum Heart Rate. There are 4 options;
55%, 65% and 75% of the Maximum Heart Rate or Target which allows you to select any number. Once
the Target Heart Rate for the workout is determined the user can set their goal and begin the workout.
4.1.7 USER (CUSTOM)
The 5 User Programs allow the user to design their own program profile so they can complete a
customized workout. The 16 segments can be preset to desired resistance intensity levels and stored
for later use. To create or edit a User Program select the USER program (U1~U5) that you wish to
create or modify by scrolling through the list with the UP/DOWN keys and pressing and holding the
ENTER button for 2 seconds. Once in editing mode use the UP/DOWN keys to set the desired
resistance intensity for each segment and the enter key to move to the next segment. Once finished
editing, press and hold the ENTER button for 2 seconds to exit the editing mode.

5 GENERAL MAINTENANCE
Bodyguard Rowers have been designed to provide many years of quality use. However, in order to
maintain product safety, performance and to maximize the life of the product, some general maintenance
should be performed periodically.
Please note that general maintenance is the responsibility of the owner and is not covered by the
product’s labor warranty, which only covers labor costs related to the diagnosis and repair of parts
damaged due to defects in manufacturing. For more information on the product’s warranty, visit
www.bodyguardfitness.com.
CAUTION - To prevent electrical shock or risk of fire, always turn the power OFF and disconnect the
power cord from the rower whenever you are inspecting, cleaning or repairing the rower.
5.1 GENERAL MAINTANCE TIMETABLE
After each workout:
• Check the central beam surface is clean and free of debris. Clean if necessary.
• Turn the power off and wipe down the rower using a mild, non-abrasive liquid cleanser applied
with a soft, cotton cloth. Do not spray cleansers directly on the unit or use an excessively wet
cloth.
Every month:
• Clean the area underneath the rower of any built-up dust or debris. This prevents it from entering
into the front mechanical compartment where it can cause issues such as overheating of
electrical components.
• Check the rower is level and that there is no rocking. Excessive rocking may cause damage to
the tracking wheels on the saddle.
• Inspect the nylon strap for any cuts or fraying on the sides. These can occur if the nylon strap
makes contact with the shroud guard. Trim away any frayed pieces with a sharp knife or pair of
scissors. There is no need to replace a slightly frayed nylon strap.
Every 6 months or as necessary:
Note: Many people choose to complete all stages of general maintenance themselves, however, most
specialty fitness dealers and service providers offer maintenance services if you wish to pay for an
experienced technician to complete the following.
• Check all frame screws are securely tightened.
• Turn the power off and unplug the power cord from the unit. Remove the shroud cover and
vacuum any dust that may have accumulated in the compartment. Be careful not to knock any
electronics with the vacuum nozzle as that could damage the components. Take a can of
compressed air and blow out any accumulated dust from any electronic boards and hard to reach
areas.
• Check the drive belt tension to ensure it is not too loose (results in the drive belt slipping on the
pulleys and creating a jerking feel when the handle is pulled.) or too tight (puts strain on the
pulleys and reduces the life of the drive belt and the bearings in the pulleys). The correct drive
belt tension should allow it to be turned 90 degrees with the hands.

6 TROUBLESHOOTING PROBLEMS
WARNING: Turn the power switch off and unplug the cord before touching any internal components.
The following information is provided as a guide to solving common problems that may arise.
Read your warranty information carefully to have a clear understanding regarding what is covered.
6.1 ERROR MESSAGES
E1: The servo motor (that adjusts the resistance) is not automatically returning to the zero position.
E2: During a workout, the UP/DOWN buttons have been pressed to adjust the intensity level but the
console cannot detect changes in resistance.
E3: During a workout, the console is not picking up a signal from sensor A or B.
Actions:
1. Turn off the power and disconnect the power adapter and remove the shrouds.
2. Check all the wires for damage and confirm they are connected correctly per the wiring diagram.
3. Check the connectors for damage or bent pins.
4. Plug in the unit and press and try to change the resistance, see if the servo motor moves
5. Consult your service provider.
6.2 RESISTANCE ISSUES
The resistance system is comprised of several parts that work together to move some fixed magnets
closer to (higher resistance) or further away (lower resistance) from a metal rim on a flywheel. Two
springs resting on the magnets bracket are constantly trying to push the magnets closer to the flywheel’s
metal rim but they are held back by a wire that runs from the magnets bracket to a servo motor. If the
servo motor releases more cable, the springs will push the magnets closer to the metal rim increasing
the resistance. However, if the servo motor winds in more cable then the magnets are pulled away from
the metal rim and therefore decreasing the amount of resistance. The servo motor is controlled by the
console which tells the servo motor how much cable to release or wind in depending on the resistance
level selected by the user.
Diagnosing resistance issues is relatively straightforward, however, if internal parts are required to be
changed then the shrouds will need to be removed to repair the unit.
If the console is lit up and functioning correctly and the user presses on the Up/Down buttons to change
resistance but does not hear the servo motor turning then the problem is either the servo motor has
failed or the wires connecting the console to the servo motor have been damaged or there is a loose
connection.
However, if the resistance wire that runs from the servo motor to the magnets is snapped then the unit
will be permanently on the highest possible resistance because the springs will just push the magnets as
close as possible the metal rim on the flywheel. The console will show the resistance level changing and
you will hear the servo motor turning as the Up/Down buttons are pressed on the console but because
the resistance wire is snapped it will not be able to pull the magnets away from the metal rim and lower
the resistance.

6.3 WIRELESS HEART RATE SYSTEM
To diagnose any problems with the Wireless Heart Rate System, please refer to Table 1.
NOTE – Only compatible (5kHz) wireless chest strap transmitters will function with the built-in wireless
receiver.
The Wireless Heart Rate System is made up of four parts; the compatible 5kHz wireless chest strap
transmitter the user attaches to their chest, the receiver in the rower, the cable that connects the
Wireless Heart Rate Receiver to the Display and the Display.

GENERAL TROUBLESHOOTING CHECKLIST
Table 2 – General Troubleshooting Checklist
PROBLEM
POSSIBLE CAUSE
SOLUTION
1) Unit not plugged in
2) Power not coming from Wall Socket
Console not
lighting Up
3) Damaged Power Supply
4) Damaged Power Inlet
5) Damaged Wiring or Loose connections
6) Damaged Console
Resistance not
Changing
Saddle (seat)
rocking
excessively, not
rolling smoothly
Nylon Strap
jerking when
pulling. (feels
like slipping)
1) Console not functioning – check that the console lights up
and when you press the Up/Down buttons the Resistance
level on the console changes.
2) Servo Motor Damaged – if console is working correctly
listen carefully inside the shroud for the servo motor to be
buzzing after the buttons on the console are pressed. Note:
If there is no noise, you can remove the shroud and confirm
visually that the servo motor does not turn when the level
on the console is changed.
3) Snapped Resistance Cable – The resistance cable joins the
servo motor to the magnets bracket and if snapped the
resistance will be permanently high. If you try to change the
resistance by pressing the Up/Down buttons on the console
you will hear the servo motor working but the resistance will
stay at a high level because the cable can not pull the
magnets away from the metal rim of the flywheel.
4) Broken Spring/s in the Magnet Bracket. The springs push
the magnets towards the metal rim on the flywheel but if
broken or out of position then the resistance will be reduced
and unable to be increased even if the servo motor is
working and the cable is fine.
1) Plug unit in
2) Ensure power is
coming from the
wall.
3) Replace Power
Supply
4) Replace Power Inlet
5) Ensure wires are
correctly plugged in
and functioning
correctly. (Tip: use a
multimeter to test for
continuity)
6) Replace Console
1) Replace Console
2) Replace Servo
