Wiring motors for an EMG experiment

How do I wire this ESCAP 16 DC motor (or more rather 5 of it) to a stepper shield for an EMG related experiment?

What motor?
And by EMG do you mean electromyography?

of course, yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You act like I'm stupid for asking. Not the best way to get started. Especially since until I prompted, you didn't even say which motor, and still didn't give any indication of which stepper shield you have, (or intend to use).

Now that you've edited and added which motor it is, it's not a stepper motor - it's a geared DC motor with an encoder, as far as I can tell. Is your (unknown) stepper shield capable of driving a DC motor? Also, most can't drive 5 motors.

If you really want help, you need to provide as much information as possible.
Connecting one to a DC motor driver or shield is easy enough, and the shield's documentation will tell you all you need to know to get started. As for the encoder, you'll need to find a datasheet for the motor/encoder to find out what the connections are.

the stepper shield is the adafruit stepper shield, which can connect 2 motors, and 2 servos. Many can be stacked.

The documentation will tell you how to connect your DC motor connections to the Adafruit Motor Shields. That's the easy bit.
I have no idea about the encoder connections. As I mentioned, you'll have to try to find the motor's datasheet for that, unless someone else happens to have used one. I looked briefly, but couldn't find a datasheet.
Otherwise, a bit of testing/trial and error might be in order.
