At the end of each segment of the workout, a
series of tones will sound and the next segment of
the profile will begin to flash. If a different resistance level is programmed for the next segment,
the resistance level will appear in the display for a
few seconds to alert you. The resistance of the
pedals will then change.
1. Begin pedaling or press any button on the
console to turn on the console.
See step 1 on page 17.
2. Select a calorie goal workout.
If the resistance level for the current segment is
too high or too low, you can manually override the
setting by pressing the Digital Resistance buttons.
IMPORTANT: When the current segment of the
workout ends, the pedals will automatically
adjust to the resistance level programmed for
the next segment.
To select a calorie
goal workout, press
the Workouts button repeatedly until
the name of the
desired workout
appears in the display. The number of
calories to be
Profile
burned and a profile of the
resistance levels for the workout will also appear
in the display.
The workout will continue in this way until you
reach the calorie goal and the number of calories
to be burned is zero. To stop the workout at any
time, stop pedaling. A tone will sound and the time
will stop counting. To restart the workout, simply
resume pedaling.
3. Begin pedaling to start the workout.
Note: When you reach the calorie goal, the console will stop counting the elapsed time; however,
if you continue pedaling, the console will continue
to display your pedaling speed and the distance
you have pedaled.
Each weight loss workout will help you burn
approximately 150, 200, 250, 300, 350, 400, 450,
or 500 calories. During each workout, the console
will count down the approximate number of calories to be burned.
4. Follow your progress with the display.
Each workout is divided into one-minute segments. One resistance level is programmed for
each segment. Note: The same resistance level
may be programmed for consecutive segments.
See step 4 on page 17.
5. Measure your heart rate if desired.
See step 5 on page 18.
The resistance level for the first segment will
appear in the display for a few seconds. During
the workout, the workout profile will show your
progress (see the drawing above). The flashing
segment of the profile represents the current segment of the workout. The height of the flashing
segment indicates the resistance level for the current segment.
6. Turn on the fan if desired.
See step 6 on page 18.
7. When you are finished exercising, the console
will turn off automatically.
See step 7 on page 18.

75
If the console display becomes dim, all the batteries
should be replaced at the same time; most console
problems are the result of low batteries. See assembly
step 13 on page 11 for replacement instructions.
If the console does not display your heart rate when
you use the handgrip pulse sensor, see step 5 on
page 18.
HOW TO ADJUST THE REED SWITCH
If the console does not display correct feedback, the
reed switch should be adjusted.
Next, rotate the Large Pulley (74) until a Magnet (75)
is aligned with the Reed Switch (69). Slide the Reed
Switch slightly toward or away from the Magnet. Then,
retighten the M4 x 16mm Screw (93).
To adjust the reed switch, you must first remove the
Top Shield (20). Using a flat screwdriver, release the
tabs on the front and rear of the Top Shield and then
remove the Top Shield.
Rotate the Large Pulley (74) for a moment. Repeat
these actions until the console displays correct feedback.
20
When the reed switch is correctly adjusted, reattach
the top shield.
22
HOW TO ADJUST THE DRIVE BELT
If you can feel the pedals slip while you are pedaling,
even when the resistance is adjusted to the highest
level, the drive belt may need to be adjusted.
To adjust the drive belt, you must remove the top
shield and the left shield (see the instructions below).
Using a flat screwdriver, release the tabs on the front
and rear of the Top Shield (20) and then remove the
Top Shield.
Next, remove the M4 x 16mm Screws (93) and the M4
x 42mm Screws (124) from the Right and Left Shields
(18, 19). Make sure to note which size of Screw
you remove from each hole. Then, gently remove
the Left Shield.

EXERCISE GUIDELINES
WARNING: Before beginning this
Burning Fat—To burn fat effectively, you must exercise at a low intensity level for a sustained period of
time. During the first few minutes of exercise, your
body uses carbohydrate calories for energy. Only after
the first few minutes of exercise does your body begin
to use stored fat calories for energy. If your goal is to
burn fat, adjust the intensity of your exercise until your
heart rate is near the lowest number in your training
zone. For maximum fat burning, exercise with your
heart rate near the middle number in your training
zone.
or any exercise program, consult your physician. This is especially important for persons
over the age of 35 or persons with pre-existing health problems.
The pulse sensor is not a medical device.
Various factors may affect the accuracy of
heart rate readings. The pulse sensor is
intended only as an exercise aid in determining heart rate trends in general.
Aerobic Exercise—If your goal is to strengthen your
cardiovascular system, you must perform aerobic
exercise, which is activity that requires large amounts
of oxygen for prolonged periods of time. For aerobic
exercise, adjust the intensity of your exercise until
your heart rate is near the highest number in your
training zone.
These guidelines will help you to plan your exercise
program. For detailed exercise information, obtain a
reputable book or consult your physician. Remember,
proper nutrition and adequate rest are essential for
successful results.
WORKOUT GUIDELINES
EXERCISE INTENSITY
Warming Up—Start with 5 to 10 minutes of stretching
and light exercise. A warm-up increases your body
temperature, heart rate, and circulation in preparation
for exercise.
Whether your goal is to burn fat or to strengthen your
cardiovascular system, exercising at the proper intensity is the key to achieving results. You can use your
heart rate as a guide to find the proper intensity level.
The chart below shows recommended heart rates for
fat burning and aerobic exercise.
Training Zone Exercise—Exercise for 20 to 30 minutes with your heart rate in your training zone. (During
the first few weeks of your exercise program, do not
keep your heart rate in your training zone for longer
than 20 minutes.) Breathe regularly and deeply as you
exercise–never hold your breath.
Cooling Down—Finish with 5 to 10 minutes of
stretching. Stretching increases the flexibility of your
muscles and helps to prevent post-exercise problems.
EXERCISE FREQUENCY
To find the proper intensity level, find your age at the
bottom of the chart (ages are rounded off to the nearest ten years). The three numbers listed above your
age define your “training zone.” The lowest number is
the heart rate for fat burning, the middle number is the
heart rate for maximum fat burning, and the highest
number is the heart rate for aerobic exercise.
To maintain or improve your condition, complete three
workouts each week, with at least one day of rest
between workouts. After a few months of regular exercise, you may complete up to five workouts each
week, if desired. Remember, the key to success is to
make exercise a regular and enjoyable part of your
everyday life.
25
SUGGESTED STRETCHES
The correct form for several basic stretches is shown at the right.
Move slowly as you stretch—never bounce.
1
1. Toe Touch Stretch
Stand with your knees bent slightly and slowly bend forward from
your hips. Allow your back and shoulders to relax as you reach
down toward your toes as far as possible. Hold for 15 counts,
then relax. Repeat 3 times. Stretches: Hamstrings, back of knees,
and back.

hands against a wall. Keep your back leg straight and your back
foot flat on the floor. Bend your front leg, lean forward and move
your hips toward the wall. Hold for 15 counts, then relax. Repeat 3
times for each leg. To cause further stretching of the achilles tendons, bend your back leg as well. Stretches: Calves, achilles
tendons, and ankles.
3
4
4. Quadriceps Stretch
With one hand against a wall for balance, reach back and grasp
one foot with your other hand. Bring your heel as close to your
