muscles and prepare them for more strenuous exercise. Make sure that you warm-up on your product at a
slow pace. The warm up should gradually bring your heart rate into your Target Heart
Rate
Zone.

COOL
DOWN
Never stop exercising suddenly! A cool-down period of 3-5 minutes allows your heart to readjust
to the
decreased demand. Make sure that your cool down period consists of a very slow pace to allow your heart
rate to lower. After the cool-down, repeat the stretching
exercises listed above to loosen and relax your
muscles.

If possible try to define your personal goals in precise, measurable terms, and then putyour
goals
in writing.
The more specific you can be, the easier it will be to track your progress. If your
goals
are long term, divide
them up into monthly and weekly segments. Longer term goals can lose some of the immediate motivation
benefits. Short term goals are easier to achieve. Your console provides you with several readouts that can
be used to record your progress. Youcan track Distance, Calories or Time.
