With Dance Aerobics, shape up using the "B" side of the Power Pad. REMEMBER!!!!!!! Warm up before playing Dance Aerobics. Don't over do it! We suggest a maximum of one hour a day. When playing, don't strain yourself...relax and enjoy! --- [PAGE 5] 1. WELCOME TO DANCE AEROBICS In Dance Aerobics, follow what the Instructor does and says. Progress through all 8 classes in the exercise studio, from the introductory class right up to the most advanced level. Your room will change into a aerobic studio whenever you want it to. You can enjoy a work out with your family, friends, or by yourself. But remember, it's important to work out at a pace that's just right for you. *From the Instructors* *What is "Aerobic Exercise"?* "Aerobics" is a type of exercise for improving your stamina. It aims at building up your body so your heart and lung functions can efficiently carry oxygen throughout your body. Stamina, not muscle power is important for your body health. This is the basic philosophy behind aerobics. --- [PAGE 6] 2.

Before starting Dance Aerobics, warm up with a few light stretching and jumping exercises. Caution: Sudden exercise is not good for your health. 2. If the Power Pad moves during exercise and hinders your enjoyment of the game, we recommend laying a commercially available vinyl carpet underneath the Power Pad. This will also dampen noise. *Special Precautions* 1. Limit play to a maximum of one hour per day. 2. Excessive exercise can be harmful. 3. Consult your physician if you classify yourself as: Being pregnant Under medication Having heart problems Having physical disabilites --- [PAGE 10] 5. GETTING STARTED Press Start on the Controller or step on number (6) on the Power Pad. In either case the Main Menu Select Screen will appear. When you step on (1) (2) (3) or (4) of the Power Pad, that particular game or game menu will appear on the screen. (1) Dance Aerobics (2) Pass Stamp (3) Pad Antics (4) Aerobic Studios --- [PAGE 11] 6. DANCE AEROBICS Follow your instructor's movements and aerobicise on the Power Pad. There are eight different classes, each more challenging then the last. For every mistake you make in the timing of your steps or where you move on the Power Pad, the number of coins will decrease. Once you have lost all of your coins you can not afford to make a mistake. If you do, the class is over and you will not get a Pass Stamp to the next level! *Now watch your instructor carefully and start exercising.* --- [PAGE 12] First of all, the instructor will show you a series of steps or "Routine". Here, the coins will not disappear if you make a mistake. Learn the steps while matching your movements to the Instructor's. Try not to make any mistakes in your movements! Follow your instructor's movements as if you were looking in a mirror. If your Instructor raises her right arm, you raise your left arm. When you're exercising in a seated position on the Power Pad, the position of your hands and feet will be checked. You may sit on (6) & (7) or (10) & (11). --- [PAGE 13] Introductory Classes 1 & 2 Beginner Classes 3 & 4 The Instructor will give the message "WATCH THE WAY I MOVE" to allow you to practice the routines. When the message "FOLLOW ME" appears, judging will begin. If the message "RELAX AND ENJOY" appears, the judges have determined that incorrect moves are being made. Intermediate Classes 5 & 6 In these classes, you exercise together with your instructor without practicing. You're not judged for the first eight beats of the class. Advanced Classes 7 & 8 These are just like the intermediate classes, but, you are not judged for the first four beats of the class. If you complete the final class (8) you will be crowned An Aerobics Superstar! --- [PAGE 14] Once crowned, press the Reset Button and the Routines will change to make it even more of a challenge. Each time you make the mistake of moving out of time or misplacing your hands or feet, you lose a coin. Once you lose all the coins your class is over. So watch carefully what the instructor's doing! The next time you work out with Dance Aerobics, you can start from the next class if you input your Pass Stamp Number. Read the next page for details on how to input the Pass Stamp. --- [PAGE 15] 7. HOW TO INPUT YOUR PASS STAMP For each class successfully completed in Dance Aerobics you will be shown a number. This number is your Pass Stamp. You can advance to the next higher level class using this number along with Pass Stamps from earlier levels (if any). To input your Pass Stamp first select "Pass Stamp" on the Menu Selection Screen. *It looks like this!* The Pass Stamp screen will appear. Use the corresponding numbers on the Power Pad to enter your Pass Stamp(s). Enter your Pass Stamps in the order received. Once your Pass Stamp(s) is entered, press number (6) on the Power Pad to start your class. --- [PAGE 16] 8. PAD ANTICS If you step on the number (3) of the Dance Aerobics Menu Selection Screen, the Pad Antics Menu Screen will appear. You can choose Tune Up, Mat Melodies or Ditto. (TUNE UP) In this game you make music with the Power Pad. The screen shows you the Power Pad, and where the notes are. When you step on a note on the Power Pad (except (6) & (7)), it will show up on the music score above. --- [PAGE 17] (MAT MELODIES) Mat Melodies is similar to Tune Up but in this case you play along with the Mat Melody tune. Move your feet around the Power Pad just as the green dots move on the screen. Be aware, your errors are being counted and if you make too many, your game will end. --- [PAGE 18] (DITTO) In this segment of Pad Antics you are challenged to match the computer's green feet and hands. It's not easy. The positions for placing your hands and feet will appear one after the other. Any body position is fine, but you have to put your hands and feet on the points indicated. The quicker you are at placing your hands and feet on the designated points on the Power Pad, the higher your score. If you score more than 80 points, the pace gets faster. --- [PAGE 19] 9. AEROBIC STUDIOS There are four different Aerobic Studios. Studio 5, 10, 15, 20. Using (1) (2) (3) (4) you can select a 5, 10, 15 or 20 minute workout. --- [PAGE 20] Your score for each studio workout is determined by how well you keep up. Play is very similar to that of Dance Aerobic Classes. Your score begins at 100 and will decrease if you make mistakes. However, if you manage to complete the next Routine correctly you can bring your score back up. Remember, every time you hit Reset the Routines will change their order, then you can enjoy a whole new aerobic workout. --- [PAGE 21 -- COMPLIANCE WITH FCC REGULATIONS] --- [PAGE 22/INSIDE BACK COVER -- 90-DAY LIMITED WARRANTY NINTENDO GAME PAKS] --- [BACK COVER] Nintendo (R) NINTENDO OF AMERICA PO BOX #957 REDMOND, WA 98073-0957 USA Printed in Japan
