How to look after your rower and precautions needed when owning Nordic Track and Proform equipment.

Keep your rower indoors, away from moisture and dust. Do not put in a garage or covered patio, or near water. Your machine is intended for home use only and must not be used in any commercial, rental, or institutional setting. This will invalidate your warranty.

The rower is not intended for use by persons with reduced physical, sensory, or mental capabilities or lack of experience and knowledge unless they have been given supervision or instruction concerning use of the rower by someone responsible for their safety.

Place the rower on a level surface, making sure that there is at least 2 ft. (0.6 m) of clearance around the rower

To protect the floor or carpet, place a suitable mat under the machine and keep the out of direct sunlight, to avoid damage to the console.

Keep children under age 16 and pets away from the rower at all times for their own safety.

Keep to the maximum user weight as per the manufacturers guidence. This will be shown on all product listings on our website.

Wear appropriate exercise clothes while using the rower. Do not wear loose clothes that could become caught on the rower. Athletic support clothes are recommended and always wear athletic shoes. Never use with bare feet, wearing only stockings, or in sandals.

Inspect and properly tighten all parts regularly. Replace any worn parts immediately with only manufacturers parts.

If the rower is supplied with a power adaptor, always plug the power adapter into the rower before you plug it into an outlet. Unplug the power adapter when you store the rower. If a replacement power adapter is needed, use only a manufacturer supplied power adapter.

If batteries are supplied, four D Alkaline batteries are recommended. Do not use old and new batteries together or alkaline, standard, and rechargeable batteries together. Make sure to orient the batteries as shown by the diagrams inside the battery compartments. Also, remove the batteries from the console when storing the rower for extended periods of time.

Always unplug the power cord when the rower is not in use, before cleaning and before performing any maintenance and adjustment procedures described in the user manual. If you do not do this, the electrical components of the machine may wear prematurely. For best results, clean the rail, the seat carriage, and the carriage rollers daily.

To move the rower, stand behind the rower and lift the rail until the it will roll on its wheels. Then, carefully move to the desired location, and lower the rail to the floor. Do not hold or pull on the console when moving the rower and store in a location where children cannot tip it.

Always keep your back straight while using the rower; do not arch your back and do not release the row bar while the cord is extended.

If the rower has been exposed to cold temperatures, allow it to warm to room temperature before you turn on the power. If you do not do this, you may damage the console displays or other electrical components.

For the best results, regularly check for firmware updates. To avoid damaging the console, do not turn off or unplug the rower while the firmware is being updated. Occasionally, a firmware update may cause the console to function slightly differently however, these are always designed to improve your exercise experience.

Occasionally, the console may not boot up properly, or if the console freezes and does not respond, reset the console to the factory default settings as shown in the user manual. Doing this will erase all the custom settings you have made to the console.

Regularly clean the rower by using with a damp cloth and a small amount of mild soap. Do not spray liquids directly onto the machine and keep liquids away from the console. Thoroughly dry with a soft towel.

You must have your own wireless network and an 802.11b/g/n router with SSID broadcast enabled (hidden networks are not supported). The console supports unsecured and secured (WEP, WPA™, and WPA2™) encryption. A broadband connection is recommended; performance depends on connection speed. iFit Live is not compatible with Virgin Media except through Hub 3 Routers

A wearable rate monitor will enable you to continuously monitor your heart rate while you exercise, helping you to reach your personal fitness goals. Where stated in the product listing if a BlueTooth strap is compatible, the console will be compatible with all Bluetooth Smart heart rate monitors.

The calorie goal shown is an estimate of the number of calories that you will burn during the workout. The actual number of calories that you burn will depend on various factors, such as your weight. In addition, if you manually change the resistance level during the workout, the number of calories you burn will be affected.

During some workouts, the screen may show a target rate. As you exercise, keep your rowing rate near the target rate shown on the screen. However the target rate is intended only to provide motivation. Your actual rowing rate may be slower than the target rate. Make sure to row at a pace that is comfortable for you.

Follow regular maintenance of the rower. There will be a ‘Maintenance and Troubleshooting’ section towards the back of the manufacturers user manual.
