HOW TO USE YOUR NAUTILUS BIKE
> Seat Adjustment
Proper seat height helps ensure maximum exercise effi-
ciency and comfort, while reducing the risk of injury.
1. Seated on the bike, place both feet in the pedals.
Rotate one pedal to the furthest most position. On the
upright bike this will mean having then pedal at the 6
o’clock position (Fig. 1), on the recumbent it will mean
having the pedal at the 4 o’clock position (Fig. 2). In
this position you should have a slight bend in your
knee as shown.
2. If your leg is too straight or your foot cannot touch
the pedal, you will need to lower the seat. If your leg is
bent too much, you will need to raise the seat.
> Foot positioning/pedal strap adjustment
1. Place the ball of each foot on the pedals. Rotate the
pedals until one foot is within arm’s reach. Then,
carefully reach down and fasten the rubber strap over
your shoe and secure it to the pedal by slipping the nub
at the end of the pedal through one of the slots in the
strap. Pull down the strap until it snaps into place. (Fig. 3)
2. Repeat for the other foot.
3. Point your toes and knees directly forward to ensure
maximum pedal efficiency. Pedal straps can be left in
place for subsequent workouts.
4. If you have a narrow foot, you can position the rub-
ber strap in a tighter location. With your feet off the
pedals, slide the rubber strap into the slot in the pedal.
Secure the strap to the nub underneath the pedal.
> Beginning Your Workout
Once you are in position and sitting comfortably, slowly
begin pedaling with your hands resting on the handle-
bars. Pedal at an easy pace and low resistance until you
feel secure and comfortable. Then try experimenting
with the range of resistance levels available.
> Upper Body Positioning
For added enjoyment, comfort and variety during your workout, experiment with
moving your hands and arms to various positions on the padded handlebars.
