Safety Precautions
•
Always read and follow the Warning and Safety
labels attached to your Bowflex Sport ® home
gym. Do not remove these labels. If you need
replacement labels, please call a Nautilus
Representative at (800) 605-3369.
•
Read the owner’s manual and follow it carefully
before using the machine.
•
Parents and others in charge of children should be
aware of their responsibility, because the natural
play instinct and the fondness for experimenting
of children can lead to situations and behavior for
which the training equipment is not intended.
•
•
•
•
Never allow children to use the Bowflex Sport®
home gym unsupervised. To do so could result
in injury. If children are allowed to use the
equipment, their mental and physical development
should be taken into account. They should be
controlled and instructed on the correct use of the
equipment.
This equipment is under no circumstances suitable
as a children’s toy.
Inspect your machine for any worn or loose
components prior to use. Tighten or replace
any worn or loose components prior to use.
Pay close attention to cables, or belts and
their connections.
Never use dumbbells or other weight equipment
to incrementally increase the weight resistance.
Use only the Power Rods® that came with your
Bowflex Sport ® home gym.
•
This machine is meant for individual consumer use
only, and is not meant for use by institutions.
•
Maximum user weight for the Bowflex Sport ®
home gym is 300 pounds (136 kg). For your safety,
do not use or allow others to use the Bowflex
Sport® home gym if they weigh in excess of 300
pounds (136 kg).
•
Allow a workout area of at least 8’4” x 6’6” (2.6
m x 2 m) of free space for safe operation of the
Bowflex Sport ® home gym.
•
Keep your body weight centered on the machine,
seat, or base frame platform while exercising.
•
When using the Bowflex Sport® home gym for
standing leg exercises, always grasp the Lat Bar
on your machine for stability.
•
Keep out of the path of the Power Rods® when
exercising and make certain that observers also
stand clear of the Bowflex Sport ® home gym
when the Power Rods® are in use.
•
Never move or adjust the seat while sitting on it.
Never stand on the seat.
•
When hooking up Power Rods® do not stand
directly looking over the top of the rods. Stand off
to the side while attaching rods.
•
Never attempt to exercise with more resistance
than you are physically able to handle.
•
Keep cables and Power Rods® bound with the rod
binding strap when not in use.
•
Set up and use your Bowflex Sport ® home gym
on a hard, level surface.
•
•
Do not wear any loose or dangling clothing or
jewelry while using the Bowflex Sport ® home
gym. Stand clear of all moving components.
Before exercising, make sure the cable pulley
system is properly secured, properly attached,
and in perfect working condition.
•
Before beginning any exercise program consult
your physician or health care professional. Only he
or she can determine the exercise program that is
appropriate for your particular age and condition.
If you experience any light-headedness, dizziness,
or shortness of breath while exercising, stop the
exercise and consult your physician.
All exercises in this manual are based on the
calibrated resistance and capacity levels of
the Bowflex Sport ® home gym. Exercises
not in this manual are not recommended by
the manufacturer.
•
Never attempt to exercise while the seat rail is
in the folded position.

Basic Assembly Principles
Here are a few basic tips that will make your assembly of the Bowflex Sport® home gym quick and easy. By using these
principles, you can simplify each process and save yourself extra time and effort.
1. To make the assembly process go faster, gather the pieces you need for each step and thoroughly read the assembly
instructions for that step prior to starting assembly for the step.
2. When tightening a locknut on a bolt, use a combination wrench to grip the locknut and ensure that it is fastened securely.
3. When attaching two pieces, gently lift and look through the bolt holes to help guide the bolt through the holes.
4. As a general rule, and for all bolts and nuts on your Bowflex Sport® home gym, turn bolts or nuts toward the right to tighten
and left to loosen. Or you can remember the mnemonic: “Righty tighty, lefty loosey.”
