    Muscles worked: low-impact aerobic workout that is especially good for toning your quadriceps muscles.

    Instructions:
    (1) Adjust the seat height correctly.Adjust the seat height so when the pedal is at the lowest point, your leg is just slightly bent.

    (2) Get to know your display panel. Pay attention to the display panel and it's instructions. Notice how many levels the bike has. Some bikes offer 12 while others offer 40. Also pay attention to the RPM(Revolutions per minute) display. Most bikes will flash the rpms it wants you to maintain for that selected level. Any questions, be sure to ask a staff member for some guidance.

    (3) Adjust the pedal straps Adjust the pedal straps so your feet feel snug. Don't adjust them too tight.

    Next, start pedaling with your hands placed on the handles in front of you. Press the pedals down with the ball of your foot and your heels as you pedal downward. Pull up with the top of your foot on the upstroke.

    Dont's:
  • Don't pedal with just your toes.
  • Don't hunch over, keep your posture straight.
