Medical / Safety
Care and Maintenance
General Information
Read this Owner's Manual safety instructions
thoroughly to familiarize yourself with the R200
Premier Rower before using it.
Your R200 Premier Rower is made of the highest
quality materials, it is still important that you take care
of your R200 Pr emier Rower on a regular basis.
The R200 Premier Rower is designed for light
commercial use ONLY and should not be used in a full
commercial, therapeutic or medical environment.
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
condition.
Your R200 Premier Rower is for indoor use only
and should NOT be used or stored in damp areas. Wipe
all perspiration from your R200 Premier Rower
after each use.
The R200 Premier Rower has been tested and
certified according to EN 957-1 and EN 957-7, 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
physician.
Adult supervision is required at all times when children
are on or near the R200 Premier Rower.
Unsupervised children should keep away from the
equipment at all times.
Keep fingers and limbs, loose clothing and hair away
from moving parts.
Before each workout on your R200 Premier Rower
we advise that a Precautionary Safety Check is wise.
All equipment should be Safety Checked for wear and
damage. If you find any damage or defective
components STOP using the R200 Premier Rower
I M M E D I AT E LY. 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
R200 Premier 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 R200 Premier Rower as injury may result.
For safety, inspect your R200 Premier Rower on a
regular basis. When used in a commercial environment
safety check and clean every day. When used in a
domestic environment safety check and clean before
use.
Components most Susceptible to Wear
SEAT ROLLERS - ALUMINUM BEAM [part#001,118]
These parts are easily damaged by dust and dirt and
should be cleaned regularly. The SEAT ROLLERS
[118] are hidden so all you can do is clean the
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 making it almost
impossible to break. Even so it is important to check
the DRIVE STRAP [709] for wear. Check for nicks or
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#014,126,127,128,143,319,360,710]
The FOOT REST Assembly has alot of 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
SUPPORT [126] self locking system is working
correctly. Make sure that all Bolts are tight and firm. If
any defects are found discontinue use immediately and
contact your dealer for replacement parts.
All FASTENERS [Nuts, Bolts, and Screws]
Alot of these parts are assembled by the consumer and
should be checked regularly. Make sure that all Nuts,
Bolts and Screws are tight and firm.
The official maximum load is 150kg.
In the unlikely event that your R200 Premier
Rower needs servicing, repairs or something is

It is important to keep your purchase receipt !
You may be asked to produce it too authenticate your
Warranty.
The Warranty terms are provided by your dealer.
DO NOT attempt to modify or alter your R200 Premier
Rower as it will be considered tampering and will invalidate
your warranty.
Please continue to read the Owner's Manual and all
safety instructions thoroughly to familiarize yourself
with the R200 Premier Rower before using it.
DESIGNERS NOTE: The return spring on the
R200 Premier Rower has been designed with the
lightest possible force. There is more than sufficient
spring tension to recoil the DRIVE STRAP ASSEMBLY
[709] regardless of the return speed of the handle to
the start position.
The reason for the light return spring is to give 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 pulled forward.

If this solution fails to correct the problem then contact your dealer for assistance.
Chest Bands
The R200APM Premier Rower has a built in chest band receiver that uses the international standard
5 kHz bandwidth. Your heart rate will only register on the computer if you are wearing a compatible
chest band. If you are unsure that your existing chest band is compatible then contact your dealer for
verification.
Target Values
Course distance and course time are optional Target Values. If these values are set to zero then the
computer will count upwards. If you select a Target Value for one or both options then the computer
will count down from your selection.
The computer will stop and sound an alarm once the FIRST Target Value has been achieved.
The Watts and Heart Rate Control Programs also have Target Values that only count down.

FAQ
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Q: How does the computer calculate WATT ?
A: watt Calculation: This computers WATT display values have been calibrated according to the EN 957
European Standards. This exercise machine was tested by an approved testing laboratory using a
Dynamometer which measures the precise torque/power/WATT values for all 16 LOAD resistance levels
at various speeds. Then the computer is programmed with this information and must pass a final test
within ± 10% accuracy.
watt Definition: a watt is the rate at which energy is expended. watt is used both in mechanics and in
electricity, so it links the mechanical and electrical units to one another. One watt is “equal to a power rate
of one joule of work per second of time”.
Q: How does the computer calculate CALORIES ?
A: Kilocalories Generated versus Kilocalories Consumed: This computers kilocalorie estimations are
an attempt to show you how many food Calories/kilocalories consumed it took to generate the work done
(i.e. your workout). And as the human body is estimated to run at 25% efficiency ± ?, and one kilocalorie
per hour = 1.163 watt (i.e. per hour), you can roughly estimate the computer displayed kilocalories
as being 4~5 times the computer displayed watt value.
Kilocalorie Calculation: The computer stores your watt generated over time and converts it into
kilocalories, then the computer alters the kilocalorie figure to better match the human body efficiently
taking into account your input User Data gender, age, height and weight. Because, it is extremely difficult
and complicated to accurately determine precise kilocalorie expenditure based on the minimal amount of
data the computer receives, and the huge differences between every persons metabolism, combined
with the fact that there are no international standards regulating Calorie accuracy of exercise equipment,
the kilocalories displayed by this computer are an estimation only !
Kilocalorie Definition: A kilocalorie is a unit of heat energy. One kilocalorie is “the amount of heat
required at a pressure of one atmosphere to raise the temperature of one kilogram of water by one degree
Celsius”. Not to get confused with calorie (cal) gram calorie or small calorie. One kilocalorie equals 1000
small calories. A kilocalorie is often (but certainly not always!) distinguished from the small
calorie by capitalizing its name and symbol. One kilocalorie per hour = 1.163 watt.
Watts Accuracy Test
An example of how to use the chart to test the accuracy of your resistance system is as follows:
1) Set the computer Resistance Level at Level 15.
2) Row at 25 SPM at a measured distance of one meter per stroke.
3) Test Results = The WATTS display on the computer should now read 100 ± 10% (i.e. 90~110 watt).
Pull One Meter
It is vital for the Watts Test accurately that you row at a measured distance of one meter per stroke. To
achieve this we suggest that you request the help of a friend.
First ~ While correctly seated on the R200 Premier Rower comfortably find your start position. Your
friend can now mark the position.
Next ~ Measure a distance of one meter (i.e.100cm or 1000mm) and once again your friend can mark this
end position.
Practice ~ With your friend help please practice your one meter strokes at 25 SPM until you are confidant that
your speed and distance is accurate.
