Your Nautilus NB/NR 1000 computer allows for a great amount of workout variety and options while
being a simple easy to operate design. The 1000 computer requires (4) AA batteries for operation.
The resistance of the 1000 is controlled by the Tension Knob located on the Console Mast just below
the computer. You have 16 levels of resistance. To increase resistance turn the Tension Knob clockwise.
Turning the Knob counterclockwise will decrease resistance.

Begin slowly with a resistance level you are comfortable with. As your fitness level improves you will
slowly strive to increase your resistance.
