BEFORE YOU BEGIN

CONGRATULATIONS! on choosing your elliptical. You’ve taken an important step in developing and sustaining an exercise program! Your elliptical is a tremendously effective tool for achieving your personal fitness goals. Regular use of your elliptical can improve the quality of your life in so many ways.

Here are just a few of the health benefits of exercise:

• Weight Loss

• A Healthier Heart

• Improved Muscle Tone

• Increased Daily Energy Levels

The key to reaping these benefits is to develop an exercise habit. Your new

 

 

1 foot

elliptical will help you eliminate obstacles that prevent you from exercising.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Inclement weather and darkness won't interfere with your workout when you

 

 

 

use your elliptical in the comfort of your home. This guide provides you with

 

 

 

basic information for using and enjoying your new machine.

 

 

 

LOCATION OF THE ELLIPTICAL

3 feet

 

3 feet

 

 

 

Place the elliptical on a level surface. There should be 6 feet of clearance behind the elliptical, 3 feet on each side and one foot in front for the power cord (See diagram to the right). Do not place the elliptical in any area that will block any vent or air openings. The elliptical should not be located in a garage, covered patio, near water or outdoors.

ELLIPTICAL OPERATION

POWER

Your programmable elliptical is powered by a power supply. The power must be plugged into the power jack, which is located in the front of the machine near the STABILIZER TUBE. Make sure the console power switch is in in the ON position. Note: Not all units have an ON/OFF switch on the console.

Do not operate the elliptical if the power cord or plug is damaged.

If the elliptical appears to not be working properly, do not use the elliptical.

MOVING

Your elliptical has a pair of transport wheels built into the FRONT STABILIZER TUBE. To move, first remove the power supply and firmly grasp the CONSOLE MAST, carefully tilt and roll.

Our ellipticals are well built and heavy, weighing up to 200 lbs! Use care and additional help if necessary when moving.

FOOT POSITIONING

Your elliptical offers a variety of foot positions. Moving your foot to the forward most position of the foot pad increases your step height, which will create a feel similar to a step machine. Placing your foot toward the back of the foot pad decreases your step height and creates more of a gliding feel, similar to a smooth walk or run.

Your elliptical also allows you to pedal both forward and backwards to offer a variation to your workout and to focus on other major leg muscle groups such as your hamstrings and calves.

E)MODE: Used to select between displayed options.

WATTS DESCRIPTION: A WATT is a measurement of your power output based on the resistance level and speed you are pedaling. For example, if you lower the resistance level and increase your pedaling speed you can still be outputting the same number of watts. Many people will use WATTS as a way to gauge the relative intensity of a workout.

TARGET HEART RATE: The Target HR is calculated as 85% of your maximum heart rate.
