HOW TO USE THE HEART RATE MONITOR
HOW TO PUT ON THE HEART RATE MONITOR
HEART RATE MONITOR CARE AND MAINTENANCE
Before you use the heart rate monitor, please read all
instructions on this page and the following page.
¥ Thoroughly dry the heart rate monitor after each
use. The heart rate monitor is activated when the
electrode areas are wetted and the heart rate
monitor is put on; the heart rate monitor shuts off
when it is removed and the electrode areas are
dried. If the heart rate monitor is not dried after each
use, it may remain activated longer than necessary,
draining the battery prematurely.
The heart rate monitor consists of two
components: the
chest strap and the

The chest strap may be hand washed and air dried.
Next, wrap the heart
rate monitor around
your chest and attach the other end of
the chest strap to
the sensor unit.
Adjust the length of
the chest strap, if
necessary.
HEART RATE MONITOR TROUBLE-SHOOTING
The instructions in the following sections of this
manual explain how the heart rate monitor is used
with the console. If the letters ÒPLSÓ appear in the
PULSE display or if the displayed heart rate is excessively high or low, try the steps below.
¥ Make sure that the heart rate monitor is under your
clothing, tight against your skin, and as high under
the pectoral muscles or breasts as is comfortable. In
addition, make sure that the logo on the sensor unit
is facing forward and is right-side-up. Note: If the
heart rate monitor does not function when positioned
as described, try moving it slightly lower or higher on
your chest.
The heart rate monitor should be under
your clothing, tight
against your skin, and as high under the pectoral muscles or breasts as is comfortable. Make sure that the
logo on the sensor unit is facing forward and is rightside-up.
¥ Use saline solution such as saliva or contact lens
solution to wet the two electrode areas on the
sensor unit. If heart rate readings do not appear until
you begin perspiring, re-wet the electrode areas.
Pull the sensor unit away from your body a few inches
and locate the two electrode areas on the inner side.
The electrode areas are the areas covered by shallow
ridges. Using saline solution such as saliva or contact
lens solution, wet both electrode areas. Return the
sensor unit to a position against your chest.
¥ As you walk or run on the treadmill, position yourself near the center of the walking belt. For the
console to display heart rate readings, the user
must be within armÕs length of the console.
7
¥ 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.
Locate the battery cover
on the back of the sensor unit. Insert a coin
into the slot in the cover
and turn the cover counterclockwise to the
ÒopenÓ position. Remove
the cover.
¥ The operation of the heart rate monitor can be
affected by magnetic interference caused by high
power lines or other sources. If it is suspected that
this is a problem, try relocating the treadmill.
Remove the old battery
from the sensor unit.
Insert a new CR 2032
battery, making sure
that the writing is on top.
In addition, make sure
that the rubber gasket is
in place in the sensor
unit. Replace the battery
cover and turn it to the
closed position.
¥ The CR2032 battery may need to be replaced.
Follow the steps at the right to replace the battery.

Grounded Outlet Box
Adapter
Your treadmill, like any other type of sophisticated
electronic equipment, can be seriously damaged by
sudden voltage changes in your homeÕs power.
Voltage surges, spikes, and noise interference can
result from weather conditions or from other appliances
being turned on or off. To decrease the possibility of
your treadmill being damaged, always use a surge
suppressor with your treadmill (see drawing 1 at
the right).
Surge Suppressor
Lug
Metal Screw
Use only a single-outlet surge suppressor that is UL
1449 listed as a transient voltage surge suppressor
(TVSS). The surge suppressor must have a UL suppressed voltage rating of 400 volts or less and a minimum surge dissipation of 450 joules. The surge suppressor must be electrically rated for 120 volts AC and
15 amps.
The temporary adapter should be used only until a
properly grounded outlet (drawing 1) can be installed
by a qualified electrician.
The green-colored rigid ear, lug, or the like extending
from the adapter must be connected to a permanent
ground such as a properly grounded outlet box cover.
Whenever the adapter is used it must be held in place
by a metal screw. Some 2-pole receptacle outlet box
covers are not grounded. Contact a qualified electrician to determine if the outlet box cover is
grounded before using an adapter.
This product must be grounded. If it should malfunction or break down, grounding provides a path of least
resistance for electric current to reduce the risk of electric shock. This product is equipped with a cord having
an equipment-grounding conductor and a grounding
plug. Plug the power cord into a surge suppressor,
and plug the surge suppressor into an appropriate
outlet that is properly installed and grounded in
accordance with all local codes and ordinances.

REEBOK UNIVERSITY
WALKING AND REDUCED RISK FOR CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASE
Reebok University was launched in 1993 to fulfill a
vision to establish a Òuniversity without wallsÓ that
develops quality, researched, state-of-the-art fitness
programming for the fitness industry throughout the
world.
Several studies have found that regular walking at any
speed can increase HDL-C cholesterol (a high-density
lipoprotein which removes excess cholesterol from the
body) and can lower concentrations of blood triglycerides (a storage form of fat), thus reducing the risk for
cardiovascular disease.
Working with the worldÕs best professionals, Reebok
University has created a host of original programs,
such as Step Reebok¨, Walk ReebokSM, Slide ReebokSM
and Reebok City JamSM. The industry has adopted
Reebok programming as the ÒgoldÓ standard. Our
guidelines and terminology are used by fitness professionals and participants around the world, and our
exceptional programming has been approved in the
United States by AFAA and ACE for continuing education credits.
Duncan and his colleagues3 concluded that exercise
does not have to be vigorous to reduce cardiovascular
risk factors. In other words, people who choose to
stroll rather than walk briskly can reduce their risk for
cardiovascular disease.
After studying the physical activity patterns of 17,000
Harvard alumni over a 20-year period, Paffenbarger
and his colleagues4 concluded that walking as little as
five city blocks per day can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, and walking 2 miles per day can
reduce the risk of a heart attack by 28% or more.
Therefore, while walking at a fast pace will improve
aerobic fitness, walking at any speed (slow or fast) can
reduce a person's risk for heart disease.
WALKING AND CARDIORESPIRATORY
ENDURANCE
Scientific studies confirm that
walking at a moderate to brisk
pace can enhance aerobic fitness. Rippe and
his colleagues1 found
that of 500 subjects
tested, 67% of the men
and 90% of the women
were able to reach their
target heart rates by
walking 4 to 4.5 miles
per hour.
WALKING AND WEIGHT REDUCTION
Walking is an excellent activity for burning calories.
The steeper the incline and/or the faster the speed, the
more calories are burned. For example, a 150-pound
person walking at 3.5 miles per hour on flat ground will
burn about 300 calories per hour. This same person
will burn 400 calories per hour on a gentle 4% incline
and 500 calories per hour on a steeper 10% incline. If
this person speeds the pace up to 4 miles per hour on
level ground, 350 calories will be burned in one hour.5
Pollock and his colleagues2 found that middle-aged
men who walked at a pace of 3.5 to 4.5 miles per hour
for 40 minutes four times per week had the same cardiovascular improvements as men the same age who
jogged for 30 minutes three times per week. Although
the intensity of exercise was lower for the walkers than
the runners, the increased duration and frequency of
walking provided the walkers with similar aerobic benefits as the runners.
It should be noted that participants who do not wish to
walk at faster speeds can burn a comparable number
of calories by walking for longer periods of time.
WALKING AND BONE DENSITY
Osteoporosis is a major health problem in the United
States, affecting an estimated 15 to 30 million people.
An age-related disorder, osteoporosis reduces the
density of bones. This disease can be life-threatening
since many older people die as a result of complications suffered from broken bones. Adequate calcium in
the diet and weight-bearing exercises seem to reduce
the risk of osteoporosis.
On the basis of current research, it seems clear that
walking at a moderate to brisk pace can be an excellent aerobic activity.
30
Several studies have reported that regular walking at
moderate to brisk speeds appears to increase bone
density. Specifically, Fradin and his colleagues6 found
that 70-year-old subjects who walked at least 30 minutes per day had higher bone mineral content than
subjects who walked less than 30 minutes per day.
Jones and his colleagues7 reported that sedentary
women (aged 30 to 61 years old) who began a regular
walking program and continued for one year increased
their bone density.
During a 24-week study, not one of 59 participants
who walked five days a week at speeds between 3 and
5 miles per hour sustained a walking-related injury that
necessitated consulting with a physician. Carroll and
his colleagues10 reported that 14% of the elderly subjects participating in a walking study suffered trainingrelated orthopedic injuries, mostly to the lower leg and
foot. The majority of injuries occurred in the group assigned to "fast walking."
It is important to note that all forms of exercise have
some degree of risk associated with the activity.
Generally, the less mechanical stress on the musculoskeletal system, the less risk of becoming injured.
Because of the low-impact nature of walking, the incidence of injury appears to be low when compared to
other high-impact activities.
Since walking can be comfortably performed by people
of any age, walking appears to be practical and effective in reducing a person's risk for developing osteoporosis.
WALKING AND STRESS REDUCTION
There are many stressors in today's society, including
economic concerns, work-related pressures and the
need to balance career goals with home responsibilities. People who are unable to cope with these types
of stressors are often tense and anxious, and may
even become physically or psychologically ill.

Researchers have found that exercise is one way to
help people reduce stress. For example, subjects who
engaged in a regular aerobic conditioning program and
who altered their diets experienced significant gains in
self-concept, feelings of well-being and reduced
depression.8
Cramer and his colleagues9 specifically examined the
effect of brisk walking on mildly obese sedentary
women and found that walking improved general psychological well-being. Walking therefore appears to be
an effective tool for improving psychological well-being.
WALKING AND INJURIES
Walking is often associated with a low injury rate.
Walking is considered to be a "low impact" activity because one foot remains in contact with the ground at
all times. Walking at speeds of 3 miles per hour produces vertical impact forces that are around 1.25 times
body weight, whereas running at 7 miles per hour increases vertical impact forces to more than 2.5 times
body weight.

EXERCISE GUIDELINES
During the first few minutes of exercise, your body
uses easily accessible carbohydrate calories for energy. Only after the first few minutes does your body
begin to use stored fat calories for energy. If your goal
is to burn fat, adjust the speed or incline of the treadmill until your heart rate is near the lowest number in
your training zone.
WARNING
Before beginning any exercise program, consult your physician. This is especially important for individuals over the age of 35 or individuals with pre-existing health problems.
The heart rate monitor is not a medical device. Various factors, including the user's
movement, 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.
For maximum fat burning, adjust the speed or incline
of the treadmill until your heart rate is near the middle
number in your training zone.
Aerobic Exercise
If your goal is to strengthen your cardiovascular system, your exercise must be Òaerobic.Ó Aerobic exercise
is activity that requires large amounts of oxygen for prolonged periods of time. This increases the demand on
the heart to pump blood to the muscles and on the
lungs to oxygenate the blood. For aerobic exercise, adjust the speed or incline of the treadmill until your heart
rate is near the highest number in your training zone.
The following guidelines will help you to plan your exercise program. RememberÑthese are general guidelines only. For more detailed exercise information, obtain a reputable book or consult your physician.
EXERCISE INTENSITY
WORKOUT GUIDELINES
Whether your goal is to burn fat or to strengthen your
cardiovascular system, the key to achieving the
desired results is to exercise with the proper intensity.
The proper intensity level can be found by using your
heart rate as a guide. The chart below shows recommended heart rates for fat burning and aerobic exercise.
Each workout should include the following three parts:
A Warm-upÑStart each workout with 5 to 10 minutes
of stretching and light exercise. A proper warm-up increases your body temperature, heart rate and circulation in preparation for exercise.
Training Zone ExerciseÑAfter warming up, increase
the intensity of your exercise until your heart rate is in
your training zone for 20 to 60 minutes. (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 exerciseÑnever hold your breath.
To find the proper heart rate for you, first find your age
near the bottom of the chart (ages are rounded off to
the nearest ten years). Next, find the three numbers
above your age. The three numbers define your Òtraining zone.Ó The lower two numbers are recommended
heart rates for fat burning; the higher number is the
recommended heart rate for aerobic exercise.
A Cool-downÑFinish each workout with 5 to 10 minutes of stretching to cool down. This will increase the
flexibility of your muscles and will help prevent post-exercise problems.
EXERCISE FREQUENCY
You can measure your heart rate using the heart rate
monitor. If your heart rate is too high or too low, adjust
the speed or incline of the treadmill accordingly.
To maintain or improve your condition, complete three
workouts each week, with at least one day of rest
between workouts. After a few months, you may
complete up to five workouts each week if desired.
Fat Burning
To burn fat effectively, you must exercise at a relatively
low intensity level for a sustained period of time.
32
SUGGESTED STRETCHES
The correct form for several basic stretches is shown at the right. Move slowly as you stretchÑnever bounce.
1. Toe Touch Stretch
Stand with your knees bent slightly and slowly bend forward
from your hips. Allow your back and shoulders to relax as you
reach down toward your toes as far as possible. Hold for 15
counts, then relax. Repeat 3 times. Stretches: Hamstrings,
back of knees and back.
