OPERATION
HOW TO USE THE SCHWINN EXERCISE BIKE
■ Seat adjustment
Proper seat adjustment helps ensure maximum exercise
efficiency and comfort, while reducing the risk of injury.
Fig. 1
1. Place one pedal in the forward position and center the
ball of your foot over the center of the pedal. Your leg
should be slightly bent at the knee (Figs. 1 and 2).
Fig. 2
2. If your leg is too straight or your foot cannot touch the
pedal, you will need to move the seat down on the
upright bike or forward on the recumbent bike. If your leg
is bent too much, you will need to move the seat up on
the upright bike or backward on the recumbent bike.
Fig. 3
3. Adjust the upright seat height by first dismounting the
bike, then pulling out the adjustment knob on the seat
tube and releasing the locking pin (Fig. 3). Lower or raise
the seat to the desired height. Release the seat knob,
engaging the locking pin. Be sure that the pin is fully
secured in a seat post hole. To adjust the recumbent
seat, pull the seat knob up to release the seat. Slide the
seat forward or backward to the desired position. The
knob will “pop” up into the next hole; turn the knob to
ensure a tight fit. (Fig.4)
Fig. 4
4. The upright bike also features a combination fore / aft
and micro seat height adjustment slider. To move the seat
closer to, or away from the console, loosen the knob,
slide the seat forward or rearward to the desired position
and re-tighten (Fig. 5). Because of the unique angled
design of the slider it also functions as a micro seat
height adjustment. Using this feature in combination with
the pop-pin adjustment on the seat tube enables you to
fine tune the proper seat height for optimum comfort and
performance.

Fig. 6
Fig. 7
■ Foot positioning/pedal strap adjustment
Place the ball of each foot on the pedals. Rotate the pedals until one foot is within arms reach. Then, reach down
carefully and fasten the rubber strap over your shoe and
secure it to the pedal by slipping the nub at the end of
the pedal through one of the slots in the strap. Pull down
on the strap until it snaps into place (Fig. 6). Repeat for
the other foot. Point your toes and knees directly forward to
ensure maximum pedal efficiency. Pedal straps can be
left in place for subsequent workouts.
■ Handlebar Adjustment
The upright bike offers an adjustable handlebar to ensure
a variety of comfortable hand positions. To adjust the
angle of the handlebars, loosen knob, adjust the handlebars to the desired position and re-tighten (Fig. 7).
OPERATION
Fig. 5
■ Console Adjustment
The upright and recumbent bike both feature a console position adjustment that enables you to position the console
closer or farther away from your body to make the console buttons easier to reach, the LCD screen easier to
view, and your body position more comfortable so you
don’t feel too cramped or too stretched out while exercising. To adjust the console position, loosen the knob,
adjust the console to the desired position and re-tighten
(Fig. 8). Experiment by moving the seat and console sliders
closer together or farther apart to totally customize the most
comfortable exercise position possible.
■ Resistance adjustment
Using the console, you have control over the levels of
resistance integrated into your workout. Typically, lower
resistance levels enable you to move at a faster pace, placing increased demand on your cardiovascular system.
Higher resistance levels will typically deliver more of a
muscle / endurance workout at lower RPMs. But everyone
is different! So experiment and find the beginning of
resistance that is comfortable for you.
Fig. 8
■ Lower body workout
Once you are in position and sitting comfortably, slowly
begin pedaling, with your arms relaxed and with your
hands resting on the hand grips. Pedal at an easy pace,
at a low resistance level until you feel comfortable and
secure. As you feel more comfortable, experiment with
the range of resistance levels available via the console.

OPERATION
USING THE COMPUTER
Using the Computer
Your Schwinn bike is equipped with a versatile computer console which
includes:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Quick Start
1 Manual program
6 profile programs
Calorie Goal
BMI (Body Mass Index)
Recovery Mode
Results Mode
This console provides you with important information about your workout
as well as controls the resistance levels. The following sections will
describe how to utilize the many functions provided by this computer. Keep
this manual accessible for future reference, as you will want to experiment
with the various functions while you become familiar with the bike.
Computer Console Design
Before we discuss using the specific functions of the computer, let’s get
familiar with the display, the different features, and various buttons located
on the console.
Computer Features
11
The large LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) screen located in the center of the
console is your information center. This display is divided into sections that
provide information about your workout and any preset information you
may have input into the computer. The display provides a large main window
that indicates the PROGRAM selection and RESISTANCE LEVEL. The
smaller windows across the bottom show INTERVAL TIME and TIME, RPM
and WATTS, DISTANCE, and HEART (PULSE) RATE. The next larger window
on the right side of the display shows SPEED and CALORIES, ENGLISH or
METRIC operating mode, and the CYCLIST ICON with spinning wheels
relative to your SPEED. The icon also indicates that the program is running.
The large main area of the display shows the program profile you are using.
Within this profile are “bricks”, or rectangles, that are stacked vertically and
indicate the relative resistance level and course profile. The computer is
capable of offering 16 different levels of resistance. One “brick” represents
the lowest level and eight “bricks” represent the highest level. You can view
the level you are exercising in by referencing the Level numbers displayed
on the left and right side of the “brick” display. Levels 1, 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13,
and 15 display on the left side and Levels 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, and 16 display
on the right. The highest value displayed is the resistance level you are
working out in.
OPERATION
■ LCD Display
In addition, you will notice that there are 12 columns of these “bricks” lined
up horizontally across the bottom of the center of the display. Each Profile
Program is 50 columns or “intervals” long so each of these columns or
“intervals” represents one fiftieth of your workout time. For example, if you
enter a workout time of 25 minutes, each column or “interval” time will last
a duration of 30 seconds. Since the display shows the first 12 columns of
your workout program, as you progress through the workout, the program
will scroll to the left. The flashing “bricks” on the leftmost column let you
know where you are in your workout and other columns to the right show
the upcoming course profile.
The Manual program will display in the 12 interval columns as viewed on
the LCD screen and do not scroll as you advance through the workout.
■ Alphanumeric Display
Within the LCD display the computer features a “message center” that
prompts you to input specific data and values to make the bike easy to
operate and gets you to your workout quickly.

SOURCE: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Atlanta,
GA. The CDC is an agency of the federal Department of Health and
Human Services.
FEATURES
There are limitations however. It may overestimate body fat in athletes and
others who have a muscular build. It may also underestimate body fat in
older persons and others who have lost muscle mass.
CONSULT YOUR PHYSICIAN FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT BMI
AND THE WEIGHT THAT IS APPROPRIATE FOR YOU.
Recovery Test:
Recovery Test shows how quickly your heart recovers from an exercise state
to a more restful state. Improved recovery is an indicator of increasing fitness.
For the console to perform the Recovery Test two things must happen. You
must press the RECOVERY button, AND, the console must be displaying
your heart rate. When both of these situations occur, then the console will
perform the Recovery Test.
The console will show “01:00 STOP” and the time will begin to count
down. Stop exercising but continue to grip the heart rate sensors. After 5
seconds, the display will show “00:55 RELAX” and will continue to count
down to 00:00. For the entire minute the console will also show your heart
rate. You must grip the heart rate sensors for the duration of the test.
The display will continue to show “RELAX” and your heart rate until the clock
counts down to 00:00. The console will then calculate your recovery score.
Recovery Score = Your heart rate at 1:00 (the beginning of the test) minus
your heart rate at 00:00 (the end of the test)
The display will show “SCORE (Recovery Score)”. This will remain on the
display for 5 seconds, then you can press RESULTS to view a summary of
your workout and end the program you are working out in or press START
to resume working out where you left off.
The higher the Recovery Test score value, the quicker your heart rate is returning
to a more restful state and is an indication of improving fitness. By recording
these values over time you can see the trend toward better health!
When you press the RECOVERY button and there is no heart rate signal or
display, the console will show “NEED HR” and the HEART RATE ICON on
16
OPERATION
the display will blink. This message will show for 5 seconds, then the
Program will resume. You must see your heart rate on the display and then
you must push the RECOVERY button again to perform the test.
Helpful Tip: For a more relevant score, try to obtain a steady heart rate for
3 minutes before pressing the RECOVERY button. This will be easier to
achieve, and obtain the best result, in the Quick Start or Manual program
so you can control level of resistance.
***Please note: The RECOVERY button does not function when you are in
the BMI program.
Results Mode:
When you complete a program the Results Mode will automatically display
and show your basic workout statistics. Manually pressing this button during
your workout will also end the program and then give you your basic workout
statistics. You cannot return to your workout after pressing this button.
To have the option of either ending your workout and seeing your workout

IMPORTANT Things You Should Know Before Exercising
A.
The values calculated or measured by the computer are for
exercise reference purposes only, NOT FOR MEDICAL PURPOSES. Please consult your physician before starting any
exercise program. He or she can help establish the exercise
frequency, intensity, (including determining your maximum and
minimum heart rate and target heart rate zones) and the exercise
time appropriate for your particular age and condition. If you
have any pain or tightness in your chest, an irregular heart
beat, shortness of breath, feel faint or have any discomfort
while you exercise, STOP! Consult your physician before continuing.
B.
Pulse rate — The pulse rate will be displayed after the system has
detected 4 stable pulse signals. Pulse rate is then updated after
receiving every two signals.
OPERATION
•
***Please Note: If your heart rate goes above 199, the “1” will
flash. So a heart rate of 224 will be displayed as 124, and the 1
will be flashing***
C.
Pulse rate readout — While the grip heart rate feature is a quick
and convenient way to check your heart rate, it is generally not as
accurate as a wireless transmitter belt and is subject to occasional
mis-readings and interference. You may, from time to time find
inconsistencies with the heart rate display on your display console.
There are many external factors that can affect the heart rate display.
Some factors that influence the reliability of the heart rate signal
include the environment where the equipment is used and even
the physiology of the users themselves. Electromagnetic interference
produced by such items as televisions, computers, microwave
ovens, cellular and cordless telephones and florescent lights can
also have an effect on the heart rate display on your equipment.
By moving the product away from such items, you may be able to
avoid many heart rate display problems.
D.
Resistance Control — You can control the resistance of the bike
by using the UP or DOWN buttons. You increase the resistance by
pressing the UP button or decrease the resistance by pressing
DOWN button. You will notice a slight lag in time while the electronic
brake adjusts to your input, so make sure to allow for this and
don’t over-compensate.
E.
Sleep Mode - The console will enter a “Sleep” mode and the system
will turn off automatically if there is no input for approximately 2
minutes. Press any button to return the computer to its pre“Sleep” state or press and hold the RESET button for 2 seconds
to clear the computer.

To move the recumbent bike, carefully but
securely lift the rear end of the bike and slowly
steer the bike to the desired location (Fig A).
To move the upright bike, carefully but
securely pull the handlebars toward you while
gently leaning the front of the bike downward
and slowly steer the bike to the desired location
(Fig B). Be gentle while moving the unit as any
sharp impact directly or indirectly to the
computer can affect computer operation.
■ Leveling your Exercise Bike
Fig. B
Levelers are located on each side of the rear
stabilizer. Rotate the knob on the top of each
stabilizer end cap in the direction of the "+" to
raise the leveler foot and rotate the knob in the
direction of the "-" to lower the stabilizer foot.
Check to make sure the bike is level and stable
before beginning to exercise. Repeat the above
as necessary.
■ Maintenance
Disconnect power supply before maintaining
or servicing the bike. Use a damp cloth to wipe your bike and computer
free of sweat. Inspect the bike before each use. Replace all parts at the
first sign of wear or damage. Call your authorized Schwinn® Fitness products
distributor if you have any questions on the proper use or maintenance of this
equipment or contact Schwinn® Fitness products customer service at 1-800864-1270.
Keep all tools that are supplied with the bike to perform future maintenance.
Daily: Before each use inspect for loose, broken, damaged or worn parts.
Do not use if found in this condition; repair or replace.
Weekly: Check for smooth seat slider and console slider operation. Wipe
any dust, dirt, or grime from the surfaces. If needed, sparingly apply a thin
coating of silicone lube to ease operation.
Monthly: Check pedals and crank arms and tighten as necessary. Check
all bolts and screws and tighten as necessary.
IMPORTANT: To avoid damaging the finish on your bike and computer,
never use a petroleum-based solvent when cleaning. Avoid getting excessive
moisture on the computer.

■ Exercise and Health
It is not a secret that lack of exercise is increasingly becoming a major health issue.
Obesity is on the rise, and being overweight can contribute to an increased risk in heart
attack, diabetes, high blood pressure and other life threatening illnesses.
Most people do not get enough activity during the day to make up for the time they
spend at their desks, driving their cars or sitting in front of their televisions. We have
learned that exercising is not simply something we must do to look good and have a
great body. Exercise is a requirement for health, and overall wellness, not to mention
it can help you feel great!
The good news is that we are seeing more and more research that indicates we don’t
have to work out intensely to see the benefits. Sure, it is great if you can workout for
30-40 minutes at a time, five days a week. But it is not essential. Shorter bouts of
exercise can have a great effect (especially if you are just starting out), and a little bit of
exercise at a time is much better than none at all.
FITNESS GUIDE
FITNESS GUIDELINES
And what is really exciting is that research indicates that whether you are young or
old, people who workout at light to moderate intensities may have an easier time sticking
to their exercise programs than those people who work out harder and more often.
So, you do not need to be an athlete or a fitness ”die-hard” to benefit from exercise…
you just need to get started, work out at levels that are comfortable and enjoyable to
you and stick with it!
■ Your New Home Fitness Program
There are many great reasons why home exercise equipment has increased in
popularity over the years, but topping the list is convenience. For any fitness program to
be successful, it must be something you will stick to on a regular basis. With home
exercise equipment, you can roll out of bed, put on a pair of sweats and start working
out while the coffee is brewing. No getting in the car and having to drive to the health
club. No standing in line waiting for the equipment to become available.
And there is the comfort and safety factor. Who wants to walk or run outside when it
is dark or is raining? Or try to ride a bike in the middle of heavy traffic? With your
home exercise equipment, you can exercise in the comfort and security of your airconditioned home.
Privacy and cleanliness are also important. Now you can exercise without feeling
rushed or that anyone is looking at you (which is great if you are embarrassed about
carrying around a few extra pounds). No more sharing sweaty equipment, or wondering
if you will catch athlete’s foot in the health club shower.
The biggest advantage, however, may simply be the time factor. With work schedules
ever-changing and busy family obligations, a home gym offers the benefit of being
able to work out when it is most convenient for you. No classes to time your schedule
around, or peak times to avoid. This is especially convenient if you have children at
home.
It couldn’t be easier!
24
FITNESS GUIDE
STEPS TO GETTING STARTED
Once you have made the commitment to start exercising at home, here are
some suggestions that may help you stay motivated.
The first step is the most difficult. Any new habit is difficult to establish at
first, but it can be done. Be patient, and plan to start slow and easy. Less is
more when you are first starting out … don’t overdo it!
Get a physical exam. If you have been inactive for several years or new to
an exercise program, be sure to ask your doctor before beginning any exercise
program. Especially if you are over 30, have health problems or have a history
of heart disease in your family.
Plan for your home fitness center. Set aside an area or a room in your
house or apartment that is exclusively for fitness, and make sure that it is
as comfortable as possible, so you’ll enjoy using it. If you like music,
watching television or looking outside while exercising, make sure these
things are accessible. Remember, if you don’t enjoy the space you are
exercising in, you won’t be motivated to continue your program.
Find an exercise buddy. Research has shown that starting an exercise
program with someone can increase your chances of sticking to it. If you
have a buddy that is also starting a program, you can encourage, motivate
and challenge each other.
Make fitness a part of your schedule. Include it in your daily planner just
as you would any other appointment. Plan ahead for the week so that you
can be sure to fit it in. Even if you are pressed for time one day, a little
exercise is better than none at all. Do what you can to fit it in, even if you
have less time than you hoped for.
Use positive affirmations. Affirmations will help you program your
subconscious to accept new beliefs. Saying to yourself a couple of times a
day, “I am living a healthier lifestyle by exercising several times per week at
home,” can help you stay on track.
Set goals. Setting goals can be helpful in keeping you motivated, but
remember to keep them realistic. Short-term and long-term goals can make
this easier. How many days do you want to exercise this week? How many
workouts would you like to have done in 90 days or a year?
25
Over the past 25 years, many people have focused on walking, running, cycling,
swimming and other types of aerobic activity as their only means of exercise.
However, we have learned that two other components of fitness are just as
important. These other two components are muscle strength and flexibility.
So in addition to having a strong heart and lungs, we also need to be able to
pick up a full bag of groceries and tie our shoes without having to sit down.
When developing your home fitness program, it is only appropriate that you
develop all three components in order to achieve balanced overall fitness.
Let’s take a look at all three components:
Cardiovascular fitness is training the heart and lungs to be stronger and
deliver more oxygen throughout your body with less effort. It can help reduce
the risk of heart disease, and help you manage your weight. It is the cornerstone
of fitness, and can be achieved in many ways such as walking or running on the
treadmill or outdoors, climbing stairs, cycling, or using a StairMaster® or
swimming in the pool or ocean.
FITNESS GUIDE
COMPONENTS OF FITNESS
For many years, it was suggested that moderate level cardiovascular activity
(activities that make you sweat and breathe and a moderate pace) should be
done 3 – 4 days a week for 15 – 45 minutes at a time. It is now recommended that
you attempt to do some cardiovascular activity EVERY day, if possible.
The good news is that the cardiovascular activity does not need to be
moderately intensive everyday, nor does it need to be sustained for 15 – 45
minutes at a time.
So while it is ideal to challenge your heart and lungs by doing something like
a strong power walk every other day for 15 – 45 minutes, it is more important
to make sure you do at least a little bit of cardiovascular activity every day,
even if you don’t do it for very long or very intensely.
For example, you might try using your Schwinn® exercise bicycle for a
scheduled, moderate level workout for 20 – 30 minutes on Monday,
Wednesday, Friday and Sunday (see the intensity monitoring section for
further details on how hard to workout). On the other days, you might try
going for a leisurely stroll 10 minutes in the morning and in the evening (or
whenever you can fit it in).
Whatever you do, just make sure you get your body moving, and your heart
and lungs pumping for some period of time every day.
Muscular Strength is training your muscles to remain strong using resistance
such as dumbbells, elastic tubing or your body weight. In the past decade,
we have learned that building or maintaining muscular strength is extremely
important for a balanced fitness program. And it is especially important as we
get older.
26
FITNESS GUIDE
We have learned through a variety of studies that those individuals who just
train aerobically (without strength training) do maintain their cardiovascular
endurance over the years, but they generally lose lean muscle mass as they
get older. However, those individuals who combine strength training and
cardiovascular training can maintain their lean body mass as they get older.
What this means is that if you just do cardiovascular activity, your body will
naturally lose muscle mass as you get older, and that means that you will
actually get “fatter” as you age, unless you incorporate strength training.
We have also learned that consistent strength training helps maintain bone
and muscle mass as we get older. For women, strength training (along with
cardiovascular training) may also protect against post-menopausal bone loss
and osteoporosis in their later years.
And strength training is not complicated. It is recommended that you do 8 – 12
repetitions of 8 – 10 major muscle groups at least 2 days a week. However,
you don’t have to do all these exercises at once. You can break them up into
shorter workouts throughout the day. For example, you can do just upper
body exercises in the morning, and your lower body exercises in the evening.
Or, you can alternate strength exercises with cardiovascular exercise (often
known as circuit training) by switching back and forth every couple of minutes.
The best part is you don’t need complicated equipment or fancy machines.
You can do everything you need to do with a simple pair of dumbbells, or you
can try Nautilus’® new Select Tech dumbbells, which provide you a wide
variety of weight options in a revolutionary all-in-one dumbbell. You can use
elastic tubing, or simply do body weight exercises such as push-ups or lunges.
Flexibility is being able to bend, reach, twist and turn with comfort and ease
as we perform daily tasks, play or exercise. It is perhaps the most ignored
component of fitness, but certainly the easiest one to incorporate into our
daily lives because it can be done anywhere and almost at any time.
To maintain your flexibility, you simply need to stretch. This could be as simple
as reaching for your toes, or reaching overhead when you wake up in the
morning. Or maybe you enjoy it so much that you would be interested in trying
the Nautilus® yoga workout video. You can even incorporate stretching into
your strength training workouts by stretching the muscles you have used
immediately after you have completed your exercise set.
Like cardiovascular training, it is recommended that you stretch every day.
However, you do not need to create a formalized program. You can simply
make sure that you stretch your major muscle groups throughout the day.
Make sure you include your thighs, calves, hamstrings, back, chest, neck and
shoulders.
Do what feels good, but also remember to mix it up. Don’t just do traditional
“reach and hold” stretches. Also, try gently moving through a range of motion
that is comfortable to you. For example, you don’t have to stretch your neck
simply by pulling on your head with your hand. You can also just rotate the
neck slowly around and look side to side.
27
Of course, every good health and fitness program will also include a good
nutrition component. Good nutrition is likely the most important factor in
maintaining ideal body weight and managing weight loss.
There are a variety of schools of thought regarding which nutrition program,
diet or eating plan is best. While we do not promote or endorse any particular
one, here are some things to consider that will help you get on the road to
a healthy diet:
Understand Caloric Balance. How many Calories you intake, and how
many Calories you burn off will determine whether you will gain or lose
weight day to day. It is impossible to achieve weight loss without some sort
of “Caloric deficit” that can be obtained through cutting Calories, or burning
off more than you take in. The wisest approach is to do a little of both –
cutting Calories and exercising. It is the only proven long-term weight
management program that is successful. You should ensure that you are
consuming at least 1,200 Calories per day total. A total weight loss of no
more than 2 lbs. per week is recommended for long-term weight management.
FITNESS GUIDE
NUTRITION
Eat a variety of foods. Regardless of your eating plan, you should be sure
to include a variety of foods in your diet, maximizing your intake of fruits
and vegetables whenever possible. Colorful meals and snacks that are
divided amongst the 4 food groups will ensure that you obtain the nutrients
needed for your body to function at optimal levels. Any diet that focuses on
just one food group source or processed foods can be unhealthy in the
long run, and should be avoided. Don’t focus too much on any particular
meal or snack, but rather on your overall intake of a variety of different
foods during any given day.
Drink water. Our bodies are made up of over 70% water, and most of us
don’t drink enough. Carry water with you everywhere you go, and drink as
often as you can. This helps the body function at optimum levels, and can
significantly help with weight management.
Eat more often and be mindful of your portions. Research has shown
that it can be helpful to eat smaller meals more often versus 3 larger meals
a day if you are looking to promote healthy weight maintenance or weight
loss. And we have discovered that many portions we eat are much larger
than necessary, and can be laden with Calories. So, try snacking more and
not eating so many large meals, and share your snacks or food with others
(or break your portions in half) to help manage your Caloric intake.
28
FITNESS GUIDE
MONITORING YOUR INTENSITY
When you are doing cardiovascular workouts, it is important that you work
at the appropriate intensities when you are first starting out. It is also important
that you workout at a variety of intensities after you have built a fitness base.
Research in recent years has indicated that one of the best ways to monitor
your cardiovascular intensity is to pay close attention to how you are feeling
when you workout. Most individuals can do a very good job of choosing the
correct intensities if they simply categorize how they feel into one of four
intensity “zones.”
These zones could be described the following ways:
Zone
Description
1
Easy
Warm-up
Cool-down
2
Challenging, but comfortable
Steady endurance pace
3
Challenging, and slightly uncomfortable
Race pace
Borderline out of breath
4
Breathless
Not maximum, but winded
Can’t keep the pace for very long
When you are first starting out, you should exclusively work in the Zone 1
and Zone 2 intensities. After a few weeks, you can occasionally incorporate
Zone 3 and Zone 4 intensities for short periods of time. Remember, when
you begin to incorporate Zone 3 and Zone 4 intensities, you will find that
you will likely have to drop down to Zone 1 intensities shortly thereafter as
brief recovery periods.
For variety, you can spend a little bit of time in each of the four Zones during
one workout, and then spend your time in just one Zone during the next
workout.
Prenatal woman should always remain at Zone 1 and Zone 2 intensities,
and anyone unaware of their current medical condition should also avoid
Zone 3 and Zone 4 without prior clearance from their doctor.
These Zones can be translated into target heart rate numbers if your home
fitness product has a grip or telemetric heart rate counter. Research has
29
The following chart will allow you to log your heart rate numbers based
upon how you feel when working out. Simply log the heart rate numbers
you find when you feel you are working at each of the specific intensities.

FITNESS GUIDE
shown the best way to do this is not to establish heart rate numbers based
upon age, but rather based upon how you feel.
As you get in better shape, the heart rate number you obtain for each zone
will get higher and higher, which means your heart is able to handle higher
intensities. Or you may find that your numbers don’t change, but you are
able to stay in Zone 3 and Zone 4 longer than you used to.
Don’t get too attached to any specific number or target heart rate. If you
train properly, you will notice numbers that used to be difficult have now
become easier. You will also notice that if you are sick or over-tired, you
may find that numbers that usually feel fairly easy are one day much harder,
and it is a good sign to take a break. If you notice that numbers that are
usually very challenging are one day fairly easy, then it is a good time to
push yourself.
Listening to your body, and using your heart rate numbers (when available) will
enable you to keep track of your intensity and see your progress as you train.

BEATING THE DROPOUT ODDS
The Surgeon General’s Report on Physical Activity and Health summarizes
a few main points:
1.
2.
3.
Regular physical activity offers substantial improvements in health
and well-being for a majority of Americans.
If you exercise regularly, you’ll reduce your risk of heart attack,
cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, osteoporosis and even the
common cold.
Regular exercise, regardless of the intensity, can help you control
stress, sleep problems and depression.
The benefits of exercise and activity are AMAZING! And yet, only 22 percent
of Americans engage in exercise for 20 minutes a day. And even among
individuals who begin exercise programs, the dropout rate is about 50 percent.
So, how do you beat these odds? The answer appears to be in how your
start and maintain your exercise program as well as how you create a habit
of exercise.
Why are you starting an exercise program? For most individuals, it is to
lose weight and look better, which are great reasons. However, since
changes in your body shape and size can be gradual, and won’t happen
overnight, it is important to focus on other benefits so that you will remain
motivated.
Thrive on the energy that exercise gives you. Watch your health risks scores
go down. Pay attention to how much easier everyday activity is. Notice how
much better you are sleeping. These kind of additional benefits will continue to
keep you motivated if you make them just as important to you as weight loss.
Additionally, try not to view exercise as punishment. Look at it as an investment
in your health. If you don’t feel motivated to workout one day, think of
something that is appealing to you that is active, and change your workout.
Try not to let your workout become routine or mundane, and always
remember that some exercise is better than none at all. So, if you feel you
are not motivated to continue, stop your workout early, or skip a day. It just
might be the thing you need to get you excited about your next workout.
Possibly the most important thing is to keep progressing your exercise program
slowly. Big increases in time or intensity can set you up for injury, and
cause you to drop out. Unless you are a world-class athlete, there is no
reason to workout at world-class levels. Remember to give yourself some
days off and get proper rest.
Finally, try to anticipate lapses. If you are traveling, or your schedule is
becoming busier, and you are fearful you may get off track, try planning
ahead. For example, book a hotel that has a workout facility or change up
31
Exercise is one of life’s joys. It energizes you, helps you look and feel better
and puts you on the road to better health. Your home fitness equipment
and gym is worth its weight in gold. Congratulations on making the choice
