What to Wear
Wear rubber-soled athletic shoes. You will need the appropriate clothes for exercise that allow you to move freely.
How Often Should You Exercise
Consult a physician before you start an exercise program. Stop exercising if you feel pain or tightness in your chest,
become short of breath, or feel faint. Contact your doctor before you use the machine again. Use the values calcu-
lated or measured by the machine’s computer for reference purposes only. The heart rate displayed on the console is
an approximation and should be used for reference only.
• 3 times a week for 30 minutes each day.
• Schedule workouts in advance and try to follow the schedule.
Mounting and Dismounting Your Machine
Care should be used when mounting or dismounting the machine.
Be aware that the Pedals and the Handlebars are connected and when either of these parts move the other does as
well. In order to avoid possible serious injury, only grasp the Static Handlebars to steady yourself.
To mount your fitness machine:
Move the Pedals until the one nearest you is in the lowest position.
Grasp the Static Handlebars under the Console.
Steadying yourself with the Static Handlebars, step up onto the lowest Pedal and place your other foot onto the
opposite Pedal.
To dismount your fitness machine:
Move the Pedal you want to dismount from to the highest position, and bring the machine to a complete stop.
This machine is not equipped with a free-wheel. Pedal speed should be reduced in a controlled manner.
Grasp the Static Handlebars under the Console to steady yourself.
With your weight on the lowest foot, swing the upper foot off the machine and down onto the floor.
Step off of the machine and release your grip from the Static Handlebars.
Workout Incline Adjustment
The angle of the Rails can be increased for a more intense workout.
Do not adjust the workout angle when on the machine.
Fully lower the Incline Assembly after each workout.
Grasp the Incline Adjustment Handle and lift it to adjust the workout angle.
Release the handle when the Rails are near the desired angle. When released, the
Incline Assembly will catch and hold the workout angle.
Push down on the Pedals to be sure the Rails are secured by the Incline Assembly.
Do not step onto the machine until you know the Incline Assembly is secure.
Be sure that the workout space you are utilizing has adequate height clearance,
taking into consideration the height of the user and the maximum incline of the el-
liptical machine.
