Tread Climber

Instructions

Preparation

Step onto deck of tread climber and grasp rails. Attach safety tether. Select "quick start" or enter program.

Execution

Walk, keeping pace with machine.

Comments

Hand can be placed lightly on rail to for balance. Avoid transferring body weight or 'hanging' onto handle bars. Maintain close distance from console stepping forward on each treadle. Treadles should not bottom out. Cylinders can be adjusted so treadles depress easier or harder according to body weight. Also stepping nearer front of treadles allows them to depress downward more freely. Intensity can be altered by level and speed (mph or kmph). Also see side rear view.
