47. 29 Don’t get too attached to any specifi c number or target heart rate. If you train properly, you will notice numbers that used to be diffi cult have now become easier. You will also notice that if you are sick or over- tired, you may fi nd that numbers that usually feel fairly easy are one day much harder, and it is a good sign to take a break. If you notice that numbers that are usually very challenging are one day fairly easy, then it is a good time to push yourself. Listening to your body, and using your heart rate numbers (when available) will enable you to keep track of your intensity and see your progress as you train. Beating The Dropout Odds The Surgeon General’s Report on Physical Activity and Health summarizes a few main points: 1. Regular physical activity offers substantial improvements in health and well-being for a majority of Americans. 2. If you exercise regularly, you’ll reduce your risk of heart attack, cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, osteoporosis and even the common cold. 3. Regular exercise, regardless of the intensity, can help you control stress, sleep problems and depression. The benefi ts of exercise and activity are AMAZING! And yet, only 22 percent of Americans engage in exercise for 20 minutes a day. And even among individuals who begin exercise programs, the dropout rate is about 50 percent. So, how do you beat these odds? The answer appears to be in how your start and maintain your exercise program as well as how you create a habit of exercise. Why are you starting an exercise program? For most individuals, it is to lose weight and look better, which are great reasons. However, since changes in your body shape and size can be gradual, and won’t happen overnight, it is important to focus on other benefi ts so that you will remain motivated. Thrive on the energy that exercise gives you. Watch your health risks scores go down. Pay attention to how much easier everyday activity is. Notice how much better you are sleeping. These kinds of additional benefi ts will continue to keep you motivated if you make them just as important to you as weight loss. Additionally, try not to view exercise as punishment. Look at it as an investment in your health. If you don’t feel motivated to workout one day, think of something that is appealing to you that is active, and change your workout. Try not to let your workout become routine or mundane, and always remember that some exercise is better than none at all. So, if you feel you are not motivated to continue, stop your workout early, or skip a day. It just might be the thing you need to get you excited about your next workout. Possibly the most important thing is to keep progressing your exercise program slowly. Big increases in time or intensity can set you up for injury, and cause you to drop out. Unless you are a world- class athlete, there is no reason to workout at world- class levels. Remember to give yourself some days off and get proper rest. Finally, try to anticipate lapses. If you are traveling, or your schedule is becoming busier, and you are fearful you may get off track, try planning ahead.

21. 3 GETTING STARTED Guidelines For Getting On and Off the Elliptical Instruct each user in the following guidelines for getting on and off the elliptical. 1. Hold onto the handlebars and step up onto the pedals. Stand up straight. Begin striding slowly at a pace just fast enough to activate the console. You should see the”SELECT WORKOUT” message on the display. 2. Select the MANUAL exercise program so you can control the pace of your fi rst workout and get used to the exercise motion. Press [MANUAL] and then press [ENTER] . 3. The console will prompt you to enter your body weight. Enter your weight in pounds (or kilograms if the console is set to metric units). Correct entry errors by pressing [CLEAR] before you press [ENTER] . 4. The console will prompt you to enter your intensity level. Enter your desired intensity level from 1 (very easy) to 20 (extremely hard). First time users may want to select a low intensity level, for example, level 3. Correct entry errors by pressing [CLEAR] before you press [ENTER] . 5. The console will prompt you to enter the workout time in one-minute increments between 5 and 99 minutes. Press [1] , [0] , [ENTER] to exercise for ten minutes. After time is entered, the console will display”ENJOY WORKOUT” and your program will begin. If you do not start exercising within 30 seconds, the console will return to the start screen. 6. Begin striding at a comfortable, natural rate. Stand up straight and hold onto the static bars in front or the moving upper-body handles to the sides of the console. When you begin to exercise, the MANUAL program starts at the level you selected during data entry. 7. As you become comfortable with the exercise motion, press [LEVEL:  ] and [LEVEL:  ] to adjust the resistance. 8. Relax and stand up straight while exercising. Use the handlebars for balance. 9. Before stepping off the elliptical, use the static bars for balance, wait until the pedals have stopped moving, then step off.

Press the LEVEL UP or DOWN keys to scroll through the MORE WORKOUTS program options. Press ENTER when desired program is displayed. The Nautilus ® Fit Test Program Understanding Sub-maximal Exercise Testing Before using the Nautilus ® EV916 or E916 for sub- maximal exercise testing, it should be noted that all sub-maximal tests make several assumptions: • That a steady-state heart rate is obtained for each exercise workload. • That a linear relationship exists between heart rate, oxygen uptake and workload. • That the maximal heart rate for a given age is uniform. • That the mechanical effi ciency of the physical activity performed (i.e., oxygen uptake at a given workload) is the same for everyone. It should be kept in mind that any one or all of the above mentioned assumptions may not be met during a sub-maximal exercise test. If for any reason one of the assumptions is not met, then errors in predicting VO 2 max will occur. Unfortunately, it is often quite diffi cult to meet all of the requirements for the four listed assumptions. For example, exercising at a given workload for only a few minutes can involve an insuffi cient amount of time for many individuals to achieve a true steady-state. To ensure that a steady-state has been achieved, the heart rate should be measured after two minutes of exercise at a given workload and again after the third minute of exercise at that workload. These two heart rates should then be compared. If a difference of more than fi ve beats per minute between the two is found, the subject should continue to exercise at one-minute intervals at the same workload until two successive heart rates differ by less than fi ve beats per minute. It is also important that the sub-maximal heart rates obtained be between 115 and 150 beats per minute, because it is within this heart rate range that a linear relationship tends to exist between heart rate and oxygen uptake or workload for most adults. When the heart rate is less than 115, many external factors (e.g., talking, laughing, apprehension, etc.) can greatly infl uence heart rate. Once the heart rate reaches a level between 115 and 150, external factors no longer infl uence heart rate, and a linear relationship exists. As the heart rate rises above 150, the heart-rate/ oxygen uptake relationship becomes curvilinear. The third assumption involves maximal heart rate. Maximal heart rate is the greatest heart rate that can be measured when an individual is exercising to the point of volitional fatigue (i.e., exhaustion) during a graded exercise test. The EV9 16 and E9 16 ellipticals use the most current published equation developed to estimate the average maximal heart rate as follows: Maximal heart rate = 215 minus (0.75 x age) Maximal heart rate can, however, vary greatly among different individuals of the same age. One standard deviation is ±12 bpm, which means that two-thirds of the population varies an average of plus or minus 12 heart beats from the average given by a prediction equation. If an individual’s age-predicted maximal heart rate is higher than that person’s true maximal heart rate, then his /her estimated VO 2 max will be an overestimation of the correct or actual value.

54. CHANGING THE GAME IN HEALTH AND FITNESS ™ 36 MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS Recharging the Battery Back-Up The Commercial Series EV916 and E916 elliptical are both self-powered (cordless) with a rechargeable battery back-up. Typically, the elliptical can be operated without plugging in the battery charger. If, however, the console fl ickers during operation or the console display does not light up while using the machine, then use the battery charger to recharge the battery back-up. The battery charger is supplied with the unit and plugs into a standard 115 volt, 15 amp outlet. (all major voltage plugs are available) The plug-in for the battery charger is located in the rear of the machine at the base. Plug the wall pack battery charger into the connector and charge the battery for approximately 24 hours and then recheck it. It is okay to use the machine while the battery charger is connected. The console will power on as user starts to pedal machine, and will stay lit for up to 60 seconds in pause mode. The console will power off after 60 seconds of stopping exercise. Battery Disposal When ordering new batteries, you will need to properly dispose of (recycle) your old lead-acid batteries. Most federal and state regulations require lead- acid batteries to be recycled. Do not throw away old batteries. Lead is a toxic heavy metal, hazardous to living organisms. Disposal instructions and a list of recycling centers are tabulated in the Appendix. If you have questions, contact the Customer Service Department at (800) 331-3578.

33. 15 The fi nal assumption addresses the issue of mechanical effi ciency. Oxygen uptake at any given work rate can vary by approximately 15% between different individuals. Therefore, individuals vary in the amount of oxygen they require to perform a certain exercise workload. Some individuals are more effi cient at performing a given task than others. As a result, the average oxygen consumption associated with a given workload may vary signifi cantly from one person to another. Thus, VO 2 max predicted by sub-maximal exercise tests tends to be overestimated for those who are mechanically effi cient and underestimated for those who are ineffi cient. The point to remember is that sub-maximal exercise testing, though not as precise as maximal exercise testing, is not without advantages. For example, the results of such testing can provide a fairly accurate refl ection of an individual’s fi tness status without the cost, risk, effort (on the part of the subject) and time involved in max testing. If an individual is given repeated sub-maximal exercise tests and that person’s heart rate response to a fi xed workload is found to decrease over time, it is reasonably safe to conclude that the individual has made improvements in aerobic (cardiorespiratory) fi tness, irrespective of the accuracy of the VO 2 max prediction. Pretest Screening Prior to any exercise test (maximal or sub-maximal), participants should complete a brief health/medical questionnaire, have their resting blood pressure and heart rate measured, and provide an informed consent form. The Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (PAR-Q) is an example of a valid health/medical questionnaire for screening individuals prior to sub-maximal exercise testing. Canadian health and fi tness practitioners have extensively (and quite successfully) used the PAR-Q to determine whether individuals should be given an exercise test. A”yes” answer to any of the following seven questions taken from the PAR-Q would disqualify a participant from taking part in an exercise test until appropriate medical clearance was obtained. Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (PAR-Q) 1. Has your doctor ever said you have a heart condition and recommended only medically supervised physical activity? 2. Do you have chest pain brought on by physical activity? 3. Have you developed chest pain within the past month? 4. Do you tend to lose consciousness or fall over as a result of dizziness? 5. Do you have a bone or joint problem that could be aggravated by the proposed physical activity? 6. Has a doctor ever recommended medication for your blood pressure or a heart condition? 7. Are you aware, through your own experience or a doctor’s advice, of any other physical reason against your exercising without medical supervision? Nautilus ® Sub-maximal Fit Test The Nautilus ® Fit Test is a program that estimates maximal aerobic capacity based on heart-rate response to sub-maximal exercise. The Nautilus ® branching protocol is a series of 3-minute stages of continuous exercise at increasing intensity. The fi rst stage is a warm-up at approximately 4 METs. The intensity of the remaining stages is based on the heart rate response to the warm-up. The test is designed to raise the steady state heart rate of the subject to at least THE NAUTILUS FIT TEST PROGRAM C o m m E l l i p t i c a l _ O M _ 0 3 0 5 . i n d d 1 5 6 / 6 / 2 0 0 5 2 : 2 2 : 4 7 P M

It is important to remember that two consecutive heart rate measurements must be obtained above 115 beats /minute to predict VO 2max . The test typically lasts from 6 to 15 minutes. The test will terminate if the heart rate does not continue to rise from state to stage. In the Nautilus ® protocol, each work rate is performed for 3 minutes, with heart rates recorded during the fi nal 4 seconds of the second and third minutes of each stage. If the heart rates are within 5 beats /min, then the heart rate during the last minute is plotted against the work rate, and the program advances to the next 3-minute stage. The program continues for two to four stages until two steady state heart rates above 115 beats /min are obtained in two consecutive stages. The line generated from the plotted points is then extended to the age-predicted maximal heart rate. A corresponding maximal work rate and VO 2max can then be calculated. At the end of the 3rd minute of each stage, if the heart rates at the end of the 2nd and 3rd minute are not within 5 beats /min of each other, then that work rate is maintained for an additional minute. At the end of the 4th minute, the heart rate is compared to the heart rate at the end of the 3rd minute. If the heart rates are within 5 beats /min, then the heart rate during the 4th minute is plotted against the work rate. If the heart rate at the end of the 3rd and 4th minute are not within 5 beats /min, then the work rate is maintained for one more additional minute. If the heart rate at the end of the 4th and 5th minutes are within 5 beats /min, then the heart rate at the end of the 5th minute is plotted against the work rate. If the heart rate at the end of the 4th and 5th minutes are not within 5 beats/min, then the test failed. Once two consecutive heart rate measurements are obtained above 115 beats /min range, then the test ends successfully and the results are displayed. Estimated maximum aerobic capacity is shown in ml/kg/min and METs. Next, the results are compared to normative values for others of the same age range and gender. To use the Fitness Test program: 1.

44. CHANGING THE GAME IN HEALTH AND FITNESS ™ 26 body mass as they get older. What this means is that if you just do cardiovascular activity, your body will naturally lose muscle mass as you get older, and that means that you will actually get “fatter” as you age, unless you incorporate strength training. We have also learned that consistent strength training helps maintain bone and muscle mass as we get older. For women, strength training (along with cardiovascular training) may also protect against post-menopausal bone loss and osteoporosis in their later years. And strength training is not complicated. It is recommended that you do 8 – 12 repetitions of 8 – 10 major muscle groups at least 2 days a week. However, you don’t have to do all these exercises at once. You can break them up into shorter workouts throughout the day. For example, you can do just upper body exercises in the morning, and your lower body exercises in the evening. Or, you can alternate strength exercises with cardiovascular exercise (often known as circuit training) by switching back and forth every couple of minutes. Flexibility is being able to bend, reach, twist and turn with comfort and ease as we perform daily tasks, play or exercise. It is perhaps the most ignored component of fi tness, but certainly the easiest one to incorporate into our daily lives because it can be done anywhere and almost at any time. To maintain your fl exibility, you simply need to stretch. This could be as simple as reaching for your toes, or reaching overhead when you wake up in the morning. Or maybe you enjoy it so much that you would be interested in trying the Nautilus® yoga workout video. You can even incorporate stretching into your strength training workouts by stretching the muscles you have used immediately after you have completed your exercise set. Like cardiovascular training, it is recommended that you stretch every day. However, you do not need to create a formalized program. You can simply make sure that you stretch your major muscle groups throughout the day. Make sure you include your thighs, calves, hamstrings, back, chest, neck and shoulders. Do what feels good, but also remember to mix it up. Don’t just do traditional “reach and hold” stretches. Also, try gently moving through a range of motion that is comfortable to you. For example, you don’t have to stretch your neck simply by pulling on your head with your hand. You can also just rotate the neck slowly around and look side to side. Nutrition Of course, every good health and fi tness program will also include a good nutrition component. Good nutrition is likely the most important factor in maintaining ideal body weight and managing weight loss. There are a variety of schools of thought regarding which nutrition program, diet or eating plan is best. While we do not promote or endorse any particular one, here are some things to consider that will help you get on the road to a healthy diet: Understand caloric balance. How many Calories you intake, and how many Calories you burn off will determine whether you will gain or lose weight day to day. It is impossible to achieve weight loss without some sort of “Caloric defi cit” that can be obtained through cutting Calories, or burning off more than you take in.

The default target heart rate is equal to 70% of your maximum heart rate which is calculated by the following equation: Max HR = 215 – (.75 * Age). Target HR = Max HR * .7. To choose a different target heart rate (between 100 and 180 beats per minute) at any time during the workout, use the numeric keypad to enter the new target heart rate, followed by the [ENTER] key. To use the HR Zone Trainer program: 1. For best results, use a telemetry heart rate chest belt. However, you can also use the contact HR grips located just below the console or on the upper-body moving arms to the sides of the console. If you are using the telemetry HR method, put the chest strap on. Remember to wet the electrodes underneath the chest strap. The console must detect a heart rate signal to allow selection of the HR Zone Trainer program. If you will be using contact HR, then place your hands on the contact HR grips below the console. 2.

43. 25 ”I am living a healthier lifestyle by exercising several times per week at home,” can help you stay on track. Set goals. Setting goals can be helpful in keeping you motivated, but remember to keep them realistic. Short-term and long-term goals can make this easier. How many days do you want to exercise this week? How many workouts would you like to have done in 90 days or a year? Components of Fitness Over the past 25 years, many people have focused on walking, running, cycling, swimming and other types of aerobic activity as their only means of exercise. However, we have learned that two other components of fi tness are just as important. These other two components are muscle strength and fl exibility. So in addition to having a strong heart and lungs, we also need to be able to pick up a full bag of groceries and tie our shoes without having to sit down. When developing your home fi tness program, it is only appropriate that you develop all three components in order to achieve balanced overall fi tness. Let’s take a look at all three components: Cardiovascular fi tness is training the heart and lungs to be stronger and deliver more oxygen throughout your body with less effort. It can help reduce the risk of heart disease, and help you manage your weight. It is the cornerstone of fi tness, and can be achieved in many ways such as using a Nautilus elliptical, walking or running on the treadmill or outdoors, climbing stairs, cycling, using a StairMaster ® stepper or swimming in the pool or ocean. For many years, it was suggested that moderate level cardiovascular activity (activities that make you sweat and breathe and a moderate pace) should be done 3 – 4 days a week for 15 – 45 minutes at a time. It is now recommended that you attempt to do some cardiovascular activity EVERY day, if possible. The good news is that the cardiovascular activity does not need to be moderately intensive everyday, nor does it need to be sustained for 15 – 45 minutes at a time. So while it is ideal to challenge your heart and lungs by doing something like a strong power walk every other day for 15 — 45 minutes, it is more important to make sure you do at least a little bit of cardiovascular activity every day, even if you don’t do it for very long or very intensely. For example, you might try using a Nautilus ® elliptical for a scheduled, moderate level workout for 20 – 30 minutes on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday (see the intensity monitoring section for further details on how hard to workout). On the other days, you might try going for a leisurely stroll 10 minutes in the morning and in the evening (or whenever you can fi t it in). Whatever you do, just make sure you get your body moving, and your heart and lungs pumping for some period of time every day. Muscular Strength is training your muscles to remain strong using resistance such as Nautilus strength machines, dumbbells, elastic tubing or your body weight. In the past decade, we have learned that building or maintaining muscular strength is extremely important for a balanced fi tness program. And it is especially important as we get older. We have learned through a variety of studies that those individuals who just train aerobically (without strength training) do maintain their cardiovascular endurance over the years, but they generally lose lean muscle mass as they get older. However, those individuals who combine strength training and cardiovascular training can maintain their lean EXERCISE & FITNESS GUIDELINES C o m m E l l i p t i c a l _ O M _ 0 3 0 5 . i n d d 2 5 6 / 6 / 2 0 0 5 2 : 2 2 : 5 5 P M

These Zones can be translated into target heart rate numbers if your fi tness product has a grip or telemetric heart rate counter. Research has shown the best way to do this is not to establish heart rate numbers based upon age, but rather based upon how you feel. The following chart will allow you to log your heart rate numbers based upon how you feel when working out. Simply log the heart rate numbers you fi nd when you feel you are working at each of the specifi c intensities. As you get in better shape, the heart rate number you obtain for each zone will get higher and higher, which means your heart is able to handle higher intensities. Or you may fi nd that your numbers don’t change, but you are able to stay in Zone 3 and Zone 4 longer than you used to.

45. 27 both – cutting Calories and exercising. It is the only proven long-term weight management program that is successful. You should ensure that you are consuming at least 1,200 Calories per day total. A total weight loss of no more than 2 lbs. per week is recommended for long-term weight management. Eat a variety of foods. Regardless of your eating plan, you should be sure to include a variety of foods in your diet, maximizing your intake of fruits and vegetables whenever possible. Colorful meals and snacks that are divided amongst the 4 food groups will ensure that you obtain the nutrients needed for your body to function at optimal levels. Any diet that focuses on just one food group source or processed foods can be unhealthy in the long run, and should be avoided. Don’t focus too much on any particular meal or snack, but rather on your overall intake of a variety of different foods during any given day. Drink water. Our bodies are made up of over 70% water, and most of us don’t drink enough. Carry water with you everywhere you go, and drink as often as you can. This helps the body function at optimum levels, and can signifi cantly help with weight management. Eat more often and be mindful of your portions. Research has shown that it can be helpful to eat smaller meals more often versus 3 larger meals a day if you are looking to promote healthy weight maintenance or weight loss. And we have discovered that many portions we eat are much larger than necessary, and can be laden with Calories. So, try snacking more and not eating so many large meals, and share your snacks or food with others (or break your portions in half) to help manage your Caloric intake. Monitoring Your Intensity When you are doing cardiovascular workouts, it is important that you work at the appropriate intensities when you are fi rst starting out. It is also important that you workout at a variety of intensities after you have built a fi tness base. Research in recent years has indicated that one of the best ways to monitor your cardiovascular intensity is to pay close attention to how you are feeling when you workout. Most individuals can do a very good job of choosing the correct intensities if they simply categorize how they feel into one of four intensity “zones.” These zones could be described the following ways: When you are fi rst starting out, you should exclusively work in the Zone 1 and Zone 2 intensities. After a few weeks, you can occasionally incorporate Zone 3 and Zone 4 intensities for short periods of time. Remember, when you begin to incorporate Zone 3 and Zone 4 intensities, you will fi nd that you will likely have to drop down to Zone 1 intensities shortly thereafter as brief recovery periods. For variety, you can spend a little bit of time in each of the four Zones during one workout, and then spend your time in just one Zone during the next workout. Prenatal woman should always remain at Zone 1 and Zone 2 intensities, and anyone unaware of their current medical condition should also avoid Zone 3 EXERCISE & FITNESS GUIDELINES Zone 1 • Easy • Warm-up • Cool-down Zone 2 • Challenging, but comfortable • Steady endurance pace Zone 3 • Challenging, and slightly uncomfortable • Race pace • Borderline out of breath Zone 4 • Breathless • Not maximum, but winded • Can’t keep the pace for very long C o m m E l l i p t i c a l _ O M _ 0 3 0 5 . i n d d 2 7 6 / 6 / 2 0 0 5 2 : 2 2 : 5 7 P M

41. 23 HEART RATE PRIORITY The contact heart rate system’s ability to detect a heart rate signal is infl uenced by several factors. Movement of the muscles of the upper body produces an electrical signal (muscle artifact) that will interfere with the detection of the heart rate signal by the sensors. Movement of the hands while they are in contact with the sensors also produces interference. Calluses and hand lotion act as an insulating layer to reduce the signal strength. Also, the EKG signal generated by some individuals is not strong enough to be detected by the sensors. These individuals should opt for the telemetry method of heart rate monitoring. Contact heart rate input signals are acquired only during contact between your hands and the stainless steel sensors on the handrails. To use the contact heart rate feature, place your hands around the handles so that your hands touch both the top and the bottom of the sensors. After the initial contact heart rate signal is detected, the controller will enter a validation phase requiring a good heart beat signal within 10 to 15 seconds, or until the system acquires a valid signal. During the validation phase the controller will not recognize telemetry heart rate signals. The controller will display a heart icon. If, during exercise, the heart rate displayed is erratic, it may be helpful to remove your hands from the handles, wipe them and place them back on the handles. In all programs, the heart rate is shown automatically in the display window the fi rst time the sensors are touched. Heart Rate Priority Both contact heart rate and telemetry (e.g., Polar®) heart rate signal detection is available. The default priority of heart rate input is”LOCKED INPUT.” If a telemetry signal is detected fi rst, contact heart rate signals are inhibited from being detected throughout the rest of the workout session and vice-versa. Locked/Non-Locked Heart Rate Signal Options When the”EITHER INPUT” option is selected the heart rate source signal is not fi xed during the workout session (if the signal is lost either input will be valid). If the”LOCKED INPUTS” option is selected then the heart rate source signal is locked on the fi rst detected signal during the workout. To set a heart rate signal input, or to turn off the heart rate option all together, perform the following steps: 1. On the console keypad, press [Level: UP] , [3] , [2] . At this point the screen will display”HR INPUTS.” Press [ENTER] to select this option. 2. There are fi ve options to handle heart rate input signals. Press the [Level: UP] and [Level: DOWN] keys to scroll through the options until you fi nd the option that you want. Press the [ENTER] key to select that option. The options are as follows: “LOCKED INPUTS“— allows either telemetry or contact heart rate signals to be detected. Once the console has detected a valid input signal it will lock out the opposite type of signal for the duration of the workout session. For example, if you start out using contact heart rate then you are limited to using only contact heart rate during your workout session, even if the signal is lost while performing the workout, and vice-versa. “EITHER INPUT”— allows either telemetry or contact heart rate signals to be detected. Does not lock out a particular input signal for the entire workout. Will detect either input signal during a workout session, but only one at a time, and only until the other signal terminates. “TELEMETRY ONLY”— locks out contact heart rate signals and will only detect telemetry signals. “HAND ONLY”— locks out telemetry signals and will only detect contact heart rate signals. “BOTH HR OFF“— turns off the ability to detect any heart rate signal. Used in rare situations where there is excessive interference with the heart rate signals. During workouts where heart rate is necessary, such as the HR Zone Trainer and the Fitness Test, the console will pick up telemetry heart rate signals so that the programs are not disabled.

40. CHANGING THE GAME IN HEALTH AND FITNESS ™ 22 HEART RATE MONITORING  WARNING! PPACEMAKER USERS SHOULD NOT USE THE TELEMETRY TRANSMITTER WITHOUT FIRST CONSULTING WITH THEIR DOCTOR. Heart rate monitoring helps users monitor their levels of exertion by displaying the heart rate during exercise. There are two methods of monitoring heart rate on the Commercial Series EV9 16 and E9 16 ellipticals: • Telemetry (e.g. using a Polar® or Polar-compatible transmitter belt). A Polar-compatible heart rate chest belt transmits the heart beat signal to the receiver in the display. The display shows the heart rate in beats per minute and uses the heart rate value in heart rate control mode. • Contact heart rate (handgrip). Sensors on the handgrip detect heart rate and display it on the controller. Telemetry Heart Rate The telemetry heart rate monitoring system consists of the receiver, located in the display, and a transmitter belt (purchased separately) worn across your chest. The monitoring function is activated as soon as you strap on the chest belt and step within range of the receiver in the machine. Two electrodes on the underside of the chest belt sense the heart rate signal and send it to the receiver. The far right decimal point in the Heart Rate Display pulses to indicate that the display is receiving a valid signal. A microprocessor in the controller calculates the heart rate and shows it, in beats per minute, on the display. Before you put the transmitter belt on, wet the two electrode patches (the grooved rectangles on the reverse side of the belt). Secure the transmitter belt as high under the pectoral muscles (chest) as is comfortable. The transmitter belt should fi t snugly and comfortably, and allow normal breathing. After the initial belt signal is detected, the display will enter a validation phase in which four good heart beat signals lasting four seconds are required before locking on telemetry heart rate signals for the duration of the workout session. If your heart rate is not being displayed, try the following: • Move closer to the display. • Tighten the elastic band on the chest belt. • Adjust the belt higher or lower on your chest. • Remoisten the electrodes. • Test your chest strap with a machine that you know is working, or with a heart rate watch that you know is working. Maintaining the Transmitter Belt Clean the chest belt regularly with mild soap and water, then dry thoroughly — residual sweat and moisture keeps the transmitter active and will drain the battery in the transmitter. Do not use abrasives or chemicals such as steel wool or alcohol for cleaning, as they can damage the electrodes permanently. Replacement belts can be purchased from an Authorized Nautilus Fitness Retailer or at www.nautilus.com. Contact Heart Rate Through the use of stainless steel sensors built into the handle bar and using sophisticated software, heart rate can be checked at any time during a workout. As with the wireless telemetry chest belt, the heart rate is shown on the display in the same manner. C o m m E l l i p t i c a l _ O M _ 0 3 0 5 . i n d d 2 2 6 / 6 / 2 0 0 5 2 : 2 2 : 5 4 P M

25. 7 Workout Program Keypad The workout program keypad is located to the left of the display. There are six workout program keys, including a More Workouts key with multiple advanced program options. While the console is in the “SELECT WORKOUT” mode, press one of the exercise program keys to preview the desired workout. After selecting the desired workout, simply follow the prompts to enter the required user data for that program. When entering data, the user can select the standard default values by pressing [ENTER] at the display prompt without fi rst typing data. This will set up the console with the following default data: • Weight— 175 lbs. • Intensity Level— 3 • Age (HR Zone Trainer program only) — 40 years • Workout Time— The default time in the programmed workouts and Quick Start is 20 minutes. The Manual and HR Zone Trainer programs do not have a specifi ed default time. In this program, the console timer will count up to the maximum time of 99 minutes. Once you have selected a program, follow the console prompts. • “ ENTER BODY WEIGHT”— type in your body weight in pounds (or kilograms if your console is set to metric units). • “ ENTER LEVEL”— type in your desired intensity level. The elliptical has 20 intensity levels (1 to 20). • “ ENTER TIME 5 - 99”— select the workout duration in one minute increments from fi ve to 99. WORKOUT PROGRAM OVERVIEW The Commercial Series EV916 and E916 ellipticals have a wide variety of programming options with a great amount of fl exibility to allow anyone of any fi tness level to use.

42. CHANGING THE GAME IN HEALTH AND FITNESS ™ 24 No single fi tness program is suitable for all. All fi tness programs should be designed by fi tness professionals who are trained to tailor the program to the individual goals and fi tness levels of each client. The following information on exercise intensity, duration, and frequency is based on averages and is included here only as a guideline for use by fi tness professionals. Programs should be altered for comfort and safety when necessary. Exercise and Health It is not a secret that lack of exercise is increasingly becoming a major health issue. Obesity is on the rise, and being overweight can contribute to an increased risk in heart attack, diabetes, high blood pressure and other life threatening illnesses. Most people do not get enough activity during the day to make up for the time they spend at their desks, driving their cars or sitting in front of their televisions. We have learned that exercising is not simply something we must do to look good and have a great body. Exercise is a requirement for health, and overall wellness, not to mention it can help you feel great! The good news is that we are seeing more and more research that indicates we don’t have to work out intensely to see the benefi ts. Sure, it is great if you can workout for 30-40 minutes at a time, fi ve days a week. But it is not essential. Shorter bouts of exercise can have a great effect (especially if you are just starting out), and a little bit of exercise at a time is much better than none at all. And what is really exciting is that research indicates that whether you are young or old, people who workout at light to moderate intensities may have an easier time sticking to their exercise programs than those people who work out harder and more often. So, you do not need to be an athlete or a fi tness ”die- hard” to benefi t from exercise ... you just need to get started, work out at levels that are comfortable and enjoyable to you and stick with it! Steps to Getting Started Once you have made the commitment to start an exercise program, here are some suggestions that may help you stay motivated. The fi rst step is the most diffi cult. Any new habit is diffi cult to establish at fi rst, but it can be done. Be patient, and plan to start slow and easy. Less is more when you are fi rst starting out... don’t overdo it! Get a physical exam. If you have been inactive for several years or new to an exercise program, be sure to ask your doctor before beginning any exercise program. Especially if you are over 30, have health problems or have a history of heart disease in your family. Find an exercise buddy. Research has shown that starting an exercise program with someone can increase your chances of sticking to it. If you have a buddy that is also starting a program, you can encourage, motivate and challenge each other. Make fi tness a part of your schedule. Include it in your daily planner just as you would any other appointment. Plan ahead for the week so that you can be sure to fi t it in. Even if you are pressed for time one day, a little exercise is better than none at all. Do what you can to fi t it in, even if you have less time than you hoped for. Use positive affi rmations. Affi rmations will help you program your subconscious to accept new beliefs.

Time— The selected workout time is displayed in the upper left section of the display window. In most of the workouts, the timer will count down, in minutes and seconds, until the workout is fi nished or stopped. If (0) is entered in the (MANUAL) or (HR ZONE TRAINER) workout, the timer will count up. Interval Timer— The interval timer is displayed in the lower display, upper left corner. The interval timer counts down the remaining time within each interval. Resistance Level— Displays the current intensity level between 1 (the easiest) and 20 (the hardest). Pressing the  key increases the workload intensity and pressing the  key decreases the workload intensity. Heart Rate— Current heart rate is displayed next to the heart icon, in beats per minute. Percentage of Maximum Heart Rate— An approximation of maximal heart rate is calculated based on the latest American College of Sports Medicine predictive equation as follows: Understanding the Display and Controls The machine’s console is a computerized panel used to operate your elliptical trainer and to display all workout data.

TARGET HEART RATE  The target heart rate selected by the console is based on age, and is equal to 70% of your maximum heart rate which is calculated by the following equation: Max HR = 215 – (.75 * Age). Target HR = Max HR * .7. If desired, change the target heart rate at this point by using the numeric keypad to enter the new target heart rate, and then press [ENTER]. During a workout, change to a new target heart rate that is between 100 and 180 beats per minute at any time by using the numeric keypad to enter the new target heart rate, and then pressing (ENTER). The intensity level will change automatically to achieve the new target heart rate. The following messages may be displayed during a workout: CHECK HR BELT Indicates that the telemetry heart rate signal has been missing for the last 30 seconds. HOLD HR SENSORS Indicates that the contact heart rate signal has been missing for the last 30 seconds. HR BELT NEEDED No telemetry belt signal has been sensed during the initial setup time. HR MODE DISABLED No heart rate signal is allowed due to the set up option that was chosen. Heart rate monitoring is not possible. To change HR option, refer to the HR Priority section of this manual.

24. CHANGING THE GAME IN HEALTH AND FITNESS ™ 6 KEY FUNCTIONS Remote Operation Control TM (ROC TM ) The Remote Operation Control TM features are located on the upper-body arms above the contact heart rate grips. The elliptical can be controlled from these keypads. The ROC TM keypad on the left upper-body arm includes a Quick Start key and a Display LOCK /UNLOCK key. The ROC TM keypad on the right upper-body arm includes the Level UP and DOWN keys. These keys work exactly the same as the keys on the console. Display LOCK / UNLOCK—Statistics Key During the exercise program, the Display LOCK / UNLOCK key is used to track workout statistics which are shown in the text line of the display window. When a workout is started, the display is in an unlocked mode and the various exercise statistics will scroll in order. Press the [DISPL AY] key once to turn off the scan feature and show the current statistic in the display window. Press the [DISPL AY] key a second time and the scan feature will turn back on to scroll through the different statistics. When in the Display Unlock mode, the console will cycle through the following statistics in order: Distance, Calories/Hour, Stride Rate, Level, Watts, METs, Target Heart Rate. At the completion of a workout, the statistic averages are calculated based on the accumulation of data during the workout program. Quick Start Key— The Quick Start Key provides an immediate start to a workout session without having to provide any user information. Level (Intensity) UP & DOWN Keys— The exercise intensity level may be changed at any time during a workout between Level 1 (the easiest) and Level 20 (the hardest). Pressing the  key increases the workload intensity and pressing the  key decreases the workload intensity. After the fi rst press of a Level key, the text line will show the target level. Further presses will increase or decrease the Level. Stop Key— Press the STOP Key any time you want to pause the workout program for up to one minute. Press the STOP Key a second time, or press (1), and the workout statistics will be displayed, then the console will return to the”SELECT WORKOUT” prompt. Numeric Keypad (0-9) — The numeric keypad is located on the right side of the console. During program setup, this keypad allows you to quickly enter requested information such as time, age, intensity Level , weight and heart rate. • Enter— The ENTER Key confi rms workout selections and stores the information used by the console to calculate workout statistics. • Clear— During data entry, the CLEAR Key erases information from the console memory and backs up to the previous data entry prompt.

23. 5 UNDERSTANDING THE DISPLAY AND CONTROLS Max Heart Rate = 215 – (Age * .75) . Percentage of maximum heart rate will only be shown in HRC programs. Example: For a person 40 years of age, max HR is estimated as (215— (40 (age) * .75) = 185 . 185 beats per minute would be the approximate maximum heart rate for a 40-year-old user. If the user works out at 140 beats per minute, then 76% (140 / 185 = 76%) will be displayed in the upper left corner of the lower display area. This means that the 40 year old user working at 140 beats per minute is at 76% of their maximum heart rate. (See the Heart Training programs for more information.) Distance— Provides a cumulative total of the equivalent distance, in miles (or kilometers if your display is set to metric units), you have traveled. Calories— Provides a current total of the number of Calories burned during a workout. Note: this number is only an approximation as a user’s caloric expenditure will vary signifi cantly based on a person’s age, gender, weight and metabolism. Calories/Hour— Provides the rate at which calories are burned per hour at the current resistance level and stride rate. Strides Per Minute— Provides the rate of your strides, or how fast your legs are moving. The higher your strides per minute, the faster you would be traveling. Monitoring this number can help you maintain a constant stride rate for the entire workout. Maintaining a constant stride rate and increasing the intensity Level will result in you doing more work and burning more calories. Or, if you increase your stride rate and maintain the same intensity Level, you will also be doing more work and burning more calories. Vary your strides per minute and/or intensity Level to provide variety in your workout. Stride Length (EV916 only) — the EV916 features patented dynamic variable stride length technology. That means you can vary your stride length up to 30” in length. This is done automatically without electronic controls. As you stride faster, your stride length will get longer. Stride length tells you the length of your stride in inches (or cms if the display is set to Metric units). Watts— During a workout, this statistic displays the power output at the current stride rate and intensity Level, displayed in watts (746 watts = 1 hp). METs— Gives you the relative energy cost of exercise. MET stands for multiple of the resting metabolic rate. While you are sitting quietly, your body consumes oxygen at the rate of 1 MET or about 3.5 milliliters per kilogram of body mass per minute. When you exercise, your body needs more oxygen in order to function. For example, exercising at 10 METs requires ten times the resting rate of oxygen consumption, or about 35 milliliters per kilogram per minute. During a workout, the display shows the current MET level. During the workout summary, the average MET level is displayed. During your workout, keeping track of the METs will show you how hard you are working— the higher the MET level, the harder you are working. Workout Profi le— The dot-matrix area of the display shows the actual course profi le of the selected exercise program. The taller the column, the higher the resistance level and/or METs for that interval. The fl ashing column shows your current interval.  WARNING! User should consult a physician to determine an appropriate target heart rate in which to exercise in based on age, weight and physical condition. While Nautilus provides some target heart rate ranges, these are only approximations and should not be viewed as a medical recommendation.
