It never to
late to get your motor running.
Walking and running are
natural forms of exercise. Walking is an easy way to improve general
fitness, while running is an effective way to increase the body's energy
consumption. Tunturi treadmills offer an intelligent workout whether you're
training for a marathon or looking to improve your basic fitness level. The
preset training profiles on Tunturi treadmills offer an easy, safe and

mean the different ways a training equipment can be set to control and maintain
the training intensity. Using the different modes will make the training more
versatile, motivating, and even more effective. Usually, the same modes can be
used either in manual training in which you select the mode and then adjust the
intensity manually during training, or in pre-set profiles in which the training
equipment will control the changes of intensity partially or totally
In treadmills, Tunturi uses two training modes:
1. Manual training in which both speed and elevation are adjusted manually by
the exerciser during training.
2. Heart rate controlled (HRC) training in which the heart rate level of the
exerciser determines the training intensity. To cater for different preferences,
Tunturi has advocated for three different HRC modes:
1. Speed = HRC takes place by changes of the belt speed.
2. Elevation = HRC takes place by changes of the elevation.
3. Combination = HRC takes place by changes of both the speed and elevation.
The heart rate measurement is based on electrical impulses registered
from the heart, whereas pulse meters measure peripheral circulation e.g. via an
ear clip or a handgrip to calculate the pulse rate. If you use a heart rate
controlled exercise program or if the heart rate value is of importance to you,
Tunturi recommends using a transmitter belt for continuous heart rate
measurement. Pulse measurement is in principle equally accurate, but
functionally more limited and for some users unreliable way of measurement.
Handgrip pulse is also an easy method for measuring the pulse. It does not
require any additional devices, the measuring sensors are an integral part of
the product. The pulse measurement is effected by touching the two sensors in
the handlebar simultaneously. Handgrip measurement requires that the skin is
constantly touching the sensors and that the skin is slightly moist.
Wireless (Telemetric) Heart Rate Measurement
Tunturi recommends using the heart rate belt due to its superior reliability
and accuracy. Most Tunturi fitness equipment have an inbuilt heart rate receiver
for measuring heart rate wirelessly, i.e. telemetrically. When using telemetric
measurement, moisten the electrodes carefully and attach the belt so that the
electrodes are tightly against the skin. The belt transmits the heart rate
signal to appr. 1 meter distance.
When selecting training attire, please note that some fibers used in clothes
(e.g. polyester, polyamide) create static electricity, which may prevent
reliable heart rate measurement. Please note that a mobile phone, television and
other electrical appliances form an electromagnetic field around them, which may
cause problems in heart rate measurement. If you suspect this, move your
equipment to another place and check the function of heart rate measurement.
Tunturi delivers only uncoded Polar transmitters with selected equipment. Notice
that uncoded transmitters disturb one another if they are used close (less than
1.5 m) to each other.
How the heart rate is measured?
As the heart rate level changes constantly, the displayed value is always an
average from a certain time period. Manufacturers use different algorithms, i.e.
mathematical formulas, to calculate the average heart rate value. For this
reason, the heart rate values shown in heart rate receiving watches and in
Tunturi meter consoles may differ slightly. The faster the change in the heart
rate level, the greater the variation in different receivers. Note, too, that
Tunturi does not recommend using two receivers in training simultaneously: in
some cases a watch receiver may cause interference to the meter console heart
The basic idea of profile scaling is to ensure that you can always use
the pre-set profiles to maximum effect. Everyone knows that the required
training intensity varies – sometimes you want to exercise hard, sometimes an
easy and short exercise is just right. In order to take the exerciser’s current
training capacity into account, the exerciser must have the possibility to
adjust, i.e. to scale the intensity and duration of the pre-set profiles.
The scaling of intensity (speed, elevation, watt, Nm, HR) can take place
either before or during training: if you notice that the profile is too low for
you, you can scale it upward simply by pressing one key until the desired level
is reached. Similarily, scaling the profiles down is possible. In scaling, the
pre-set profile form will remain, but the profile intensity level will go up or
down. Prior to the start of the exercise, you can set the desired duration
(time, in some cases distance) of the profile.
In brief, scaling is the ultimate application for personalized, effective
Most Tunturi equipment feature user settings, with which the equipment
can be made more personalized, i.e. you can make settings according to which the
console or the equipment works. The more advanced Tunturi equipment feature a
user register, which allows saving your personal information in the meter
Depending on the model, you can e.g. set the user gender, weight, age,
measurement units, audio signals, etc. In some models, the total training time
and distance per user can also be found in the User Register. The console will
use the user information to calculate the energy consumption with greater
accuracy, and usually the console programs are constructed so that self-made
profiles are saved under the selected user.
The PC connection opens up possibilities in exercising and condition
testing with fitness equipment that have never been available for home
exercisers before. With the PC connection and Tunturi’s T-Ware program, you can
exercise on pro-level – totally goal-oriented, monitoring your development
accurately. You can check your physical condition on-line, keep a diary of your
sessions and make versatile analyses of your results in seconds. The T-Ware
program functions as your personal coach and a preventive health care center at
your home. It is simply a great everyday tool to beginners and athletes alike.
Tunturi’s T-Ware program is developed for domestic use, and we are proud to
say it is one of the most advanced of its kind available. The program is
compatible with many Tunturi cycle ergometers, recumbent cycles, and treadmills.

In treadmills, the motor power has become one of the major sales
arguments. However, beware: there are several different ways in which the motor
power can be measured and presented.
Tunturi always gives the motor power in continuous duty. This measure means
the highest power level the motor can give at any length of time without motor
damages. Elsewhere you may find the motor power given as peak power – these
figures can be very high, but in practice they are meaningless, as the peak
power can only be used very briefly, otherwise the motor is damaged.
Also, Tunturi gives the motor power as measured from the motor shaft – this
is the accurate power the motor can deliver. Elsewhere you may find the motor
power given as measured from the front roller – this is used to manipulate the
power figure with the transmission ratio and roller size.
How can you tell how the motor power is measured? Well, usually you just
simply can’t. Our recommendation is to rely on the continuous duty figures only.
