Fitness Equipment Safety Instructions
To disconnect turn all controls to the off position, then remove the plug from the outlet.
•
•
•
•
•
•
Do not operate equipment on deeply padded, plush or shag carpet. Damage to both carpet and equipment may result.
Before beginning this or any exercise program, consult a physician. This is especially important for persons over the age
of 35 or persons with pre-existing health conditions.
Do not attempt to use your equipment for any purpose other than for the purpose it is intended.
Keep hands away from all moving parts.
The pulse sensors are not medical devices. Their purpose is to provide you with an approximate measurement in
relation to your target heart rate. Use of a chest transmitter strap (sold separately) is a much more accurate method
of heart rate analysis .Various factors, including the user’s movement, may affect the accuracy of heart rate readings. The
pulse sensors are intended only as exercise aids in determining heart rate trends in general.
Wear proper shoes. High heels, dress shoes, sandals or bare feet are not suitable for use on your equipment. Quality
athletic shoes are recommended to avoid leg fatigue.
Failure to follow all guidelines may compromise the effectiveness of the exercise experience, expose yourself (and possibly
others) to injury, and reduce the longevity of the equipment.

POWER
Spirit Fitness commercial Semi - Recumbent Bikes have a built-in generator for power and do not need
to be plugged into an AC outlet. To power up the Semi - Recumbent Bike simply start to pedal, the
console will turn on automatically.
When initially powered on the console will perform an internal self-test. During this time all the lights
will turn on for a short time. When the lights go off the dot matrix display will show a software version
(i.e. VER 1.0) and the Message center will display an odometer reading. The odometer reading displays
how many hours the Semi - Recumbent Bike has been used and how many virtual miles the Semi Recumbent Bike has gone. The display shows: ODO 123 MI 123 HRS.
The odometer will remain displayed for only a few seconds then the console will go to the start up
display. The dot matrix display will be scrolling through the different profiles, showing the programs, and
the Message center will be scrolling the start up message. You may now begin your workout program.
Dot Matrix Center Display
Twenty columns of boxes (10 high) indicate each segment of a workout. The boxes only show an
approximate level (resistance) of effort. They do not necessarily indicate a specific value - only an
approximate percent to compare levels of intensity. In Manual Operation the resistance dot matrix
window will build a profile “picture” as values are changed during a workout.
1/4 Mile Track
14
The 1/4-mile track (one lap) will be displayed around the dot matrix window. The flashing segment
indicates your progress. Once the 1/4-mile (Metric - 0.4k) is complete this feature will begin again. The
Lap track will move in a counterclockwise direction.There is a lap counter in the message center for
monitoring your distance.
Pulse Grip Feature
The Pulse (Heart Rate) window will display your current heart rate in beats per minute during the
workout. You must use both stainless steel sensors on the stationary grips or the heart rate transmitter
chest strap to display your pulse. Pulse value displays anytime the upper display is receiving a Pulse
signal. You may not use the Pulse Grip feature while in Heart Rate Programs.
Calorie Display
Displays the cumulative calories burned at any given time during your workout.
Note:This is only a rough guide used for comparison of different exercise sessions, and is not to be used for medical purposes.
Speakers
The console has built-in Speakers and an audio input jack. There is no volume control on the console.
The volume must be controlled on the Audio Source.
Muscle Activation Figure
There is an anatomical figure located at the top of the console. This figure will light all areas that
are activated when using the bike. These will light up during any of the programs. You can control
which muscles are activated by customizing the resistance profile during the set up phase of console
programming. If you accept the default program profile, the selected program will determine which
15
muscles will be activated by automatically adjusting the resistance. Generally the following guidelines
hold true:
ƒƒ
ƒƒ
ƒƒ
ƒƒ
ƒƒ
The upper body LED’s will not light
The lower body lights will activate in three degrees of engagement: Green represents minimal muscle involvement,
yellow represents medium involvement, and red represents full or heavy activation.
These are the different scenarios for lower body muscle activation:
Levels 1-20: Green – Hamstrings & Gluteals light up; Amber – Quadriceps & Calves light up
Levels 21-40:Amber – Hamstrings & Gluteals light up; Red – Quadriceps & Calves light up
Heart Rate % Profile
The console LCD screen will display your current hear t rate anytime a pulse is detected. The Bar
Graph, located to the right of the LCD screen, will show your current hear t rate % in relation to
your projected maximum hear t rate, which is determined by your age that you entered during the
programming phase of any of the 10 programs. The significance of the bar graph colors are as follows:
ƒƒ
ƒƒ
ƒƒ
50-60% of maximum is Amber
65-80% of maximum is Amber and Green
85-90% or more is Amber, Green, and Red
Quick Start
16
This is the quickest way to start a workout. After the console powers up you just press the Start key
to begin, this will initiate the Quick Start mode. In Quick Start the Time will count up from zero and
the workload may be adjusted manually by pressing the Level Up/ Down buttons. The dot matrix
display will have only the bottom row lit at first. As you increase the work load more rows will light
indicating a harder workout. The fitness bike will get harder to pedal as the rows increase.
There are 40 levels of resistance available for plenty of variety. The first 10 levels are very easy
workloads and the changes between levels are set to a good progression for de-conditioned users.
Levels 11-20 are more challenging, but the increases in resistance from one level to the next remain
small. Levels 21-30 start getting tough as the levels jump more dramatically. Levels 31-40 are extremely
hard and are good for short interval peaks and elite athletic training.
Basic Information
The Message Center will initially be displaying the Program name. When in scan mode during a
program, speed will be displayed for four seconds, then move on and display Watts (indication of
workload). If 100 watts is displayed, you are doing enough work to keep a 100-watt light bulb lit. The
data changes to Laps completed, Segment time, Max level. Pressing the Enter button again will bring
you back to the beginning.
The Stop button actually has several functions. Pressing the Stop key once during a program will
pause the program for 5 minutes. If you need to get a drink, answer the phone or any of the many
things that could interrupt your workout, this is a great feature. To resume your workout during Pause,
just press the Start key. If the Stop button is pressed twice during a workout, the program will end
and the console will display your Workout Summary (Total time, Avg. Speed, Avg. Watts, Avg. HR, total
Laps). If the Stop key is held down for 3 seconds or a third time during the program, the console will
perform a complete Reset. During data entry for a program the Stop key performs a previous screen
17
or segment function. This allows you to go back to change programming data.
Program Keys
The program keys are used to preview each program. When you first turn the console on you may
press each program key to preview what the program profile looks like. If you decide that you want
to try a program, press the corresponding program key and then press the Enter key to select the
program and enter into the data-setting mode.
The fitness bike has a built in hear t rate monitoring system. Simply grasping the hand pulse sensors on
the stationary handle bars or wearing the hear t rate transmitter (see Using Heart Rate Transmitter
section) will start the Heart Icon blinking (this may take a few seconds).The Pulse Display Window will
display your heart rate, or Pulse in beats per minute.
The console includes a built-in fan to help keep you cool. To turn the fan on, press the button on the
left side of the console.
Programming The Console
18
Each of the programs can be customized with your personal information and changed to suit your
needs. Some of the information asked for is necessary to ensure the readouts are correct. You will be
asked for your Age and Weight. Entering your Age ensures that the Heart Rate bar graph shows
the correct number. Your Age is also necessary during the Heart Rate control program to ensure the
correct settings are in the program for your Age. Otherwise the work settings could be too high or
low for you; entering your Weight aides in calculating a more correct Calorie reading. Although we
cannot provide an exact calorie count we do want to be as close as possible.
CALORIE NOTE: Calorie readings on every piece of exercise equipment, whether it is in a gym or at home, are not accurate
and tend to vary widely. They are meant only as a guide to monitor your progress from workout to workout. The only
way to measure your calorie burn accurately is in a clinical setting connected to a host of machines. This is because every
person is different and burns calories at a different rate. Some good news is that you will continue to burn calories at an
accelerated rate for at least an hour after you have finished exercising!
Entering A Program & Changing Settings
When you enter a program, by pressing a program key, then Enter key, you have the option of entering
your own personal settings. If you want to workout without entering new settings, then just press the
Start key. This will bypass the programming of data and take you directly to the start of your workout.
If you want to change the personal settings then just follow the instructions in the Message Center. If
you start a program without changing the settings, the default or saved settings will be used.
NOTE: Age and Weight default settings will change when you enter a new number. So the last Age and Weight entered will
be saved as the new default settings. If you enter your Age and Weight the first time you use the fitness bike, you will not
have to enter it ever y time you work out unless either your Age or Weight changes, or someone else enters a different Age
and Weight.
Programmable Features
MANUAL

Calories Program
1. Press the Calories key. Press Enter to select the program. The display will prompt you through the programming.
2. If Enter was pressed, the Message Center will now be blinking a value, indicating your Age (default is 35). Entering your
correct age affects the heart rate Bar Graph Display and the Heart Rate programs. Use the Level Up/Down keys to
adjust, then press Enter. Your age determines your recommended maximum heart rate. Since the Bar Graph Display
and the Heart Rate program features are based on a percentage of your maximum heart rate, it is important to enter
the correct age for these features to work properly.
3. The Message Center will now be blinking a value, indicating your Body Weight. Entering the correct body weight will
affect the calorie count. Use the Level Up/Down keys to adjust, then press Enter.
A note about the Calorie display: No exercise machine can give you an exact calorie count because there are too many factors which determine exact calorie burn for a particular person. Even if someone is the exact same body weight, age and height, their calorie burn may be
very different than yours.The Calorie display is to be used as a reference only to monitor improvement from workout to workout.
4. The Message Center displays “Use Level Up or Down keys to adjust Calorie burn” (default is 300) After adjusting, press
Enter.
5. The Message Center will now be blinking the preset Avg. pedal RPM (revolutions per minute) (default is 50); After
adjusting press Enter.
6. The Message Center will now be blinking the preset top resistance of the selected program (default is Level 5). Use the
Level Up/Down keys to adjust, then press Enter. Each program has various resistance changes throughout; this allows
you to limit the highest resistance the program can reach.
7. The Message Center displays the Program Time (a value that that was determined by the data you entered in steps
3-6); Press Start to accept the calculated Time or the Enter key to return to steps 4-6 and change the data, which will
recalculate the Program Time.
• When the Start key is pressed, the program begins with a 3:00 warm up (1:00 @ Level 1, 1:00 @ Level 2, and
1:00 @ Level 3) or you have the option of pressing the Enter key again to bypass and begin the workout.
• When the program begins both the Calorie and Time windows will count down to 0. If the Time expires
before calories burned reaches 0, the Time window will begin accumulated time, until Calories reach 0.
• After the program has ended, there will be a 3:00 cool down (1:00 @ Level 3, 1:00 @ Level 2, and 1:00 @
Level 1) or you have the option of pressing the Enter key to end the workout.
21
Fusion Program
In this interval program you will alternate between mid-high intensity cardiovascular intervals on the
bike, strength exercises off of the bike, and low intensity recovery intervals on the bike. You will need a
pair of objects that can be comfortably held in your hands (dumbbells, water jugs, soup cans, etc.) for 4
of the 5 strength exercises performed in this program
1. Press the Fusion key. Press Enter to select the program. The display will prompt you through the programming.
2. If Enter was pressed, the Message center will now be blinking a value, indicating your Age (default is 35). Entering your
correct age affects the heart rate Bar Graph Display and the Heart Rate programs. Use the Level Up/Down keys to
adjust, then press Enter. Your age determines your recommended maximum heart rate. Since the Bar Graph Display
and the Heart Rate features are based on a percentage of your maximum heart rate, it is important to enter the
correct age for these features to work properly.
3. The Message Center will now be blinking a value, indicating your Body Weight. Entering the correct body weight will
affect the calorie count. Use the Level Up/Down keys to adjust, then press Enter. A note about the Calorie display: No
exercise machine can give you an exact calorie count because there are too many factors which determine exact calorie burn for a
particular person. Even if someone is the exact same body weight, age and height, their calorie burn may be very different than yours.
The Calorie display is to be used as a reference only to monitor improvement from workout to workout.The calorie count displayed in this
program won’t be accurate because the machine can’t calculate calories expended while strength training.
4. The Message Center will now be blinking the preset top Resistance level of the selected program (default/mini- mum
resistance is Level 5). Use the Level Up/Down keys to adjust, then press Enter. This value will be the Level for all
cardio intervals. The resistance level can be adjusted at any time during the program.
5. The Message Center will be blinking the number of intervals desired (default is 10); you may select 10 (5 cardio & 5
strength), 20 (10 cardio & 10 strength), or 30 (15 cardio & 15 strength). Use the Level Up/Down keys to adjust, then
press Enter.
6. The Message Center will be blinking the desired Interval time (default is 2:00).The time you select will be the duration
of each cardio interval. Note: As a general rule, the longer the interval, the less resistance (fitness bike) is required and the
22
more repetitions you perform, the less weight (dumbbells) you need to use; use the Level Up/Down keys to adjust,
then press Enter.
7. The Message Center will be blinking the recover y time you desire (default is 0:30) after completing both the cardio &
strength intervals. Use the Level Up/Down keys to adjust, then press Enter.
CAUTION: The
shorter the recovery time, the longer your heart rate will stay elevated; if you are new to
exercise or have recently resumed an exercise program after a considerable amount of time off, it is
recommended that your recovery interval length either matches or exceeds the length of the cardio
interval.
23
Preset Programs
The Semi - Recumbent Bike has seven different programs that have been designed for a variety of
workouts. These seven programs have factory preset work level profiles for achieving different goals.
HILL
This program follows a triangle or pyramid type of gradual progression from
approximately 10% of maximum effort (the level that you chose before starting
this program) up to a maximum effort which lasts for 10% of the total workout
time, then a gradual regression of resistance back to approximately 10% of
maximum effort
FAT BURN
This program follows a quick progression up to the maximum resistance level
(default or user input level) that is sustained for 2/3 of the workout. This program
will challenge your ability to sustain your energy output for an extended period of
time.
CARDIO
24
This program presents a quick progression up to near maximum resistance level
(default or user input level). It has slight fluctuations up and down to allow your
heart rate to elevate, and then recover repeatedly, before beginning a quick cool
down. This will build up your heart muscle and increase blood flow and lung
capacity
STRENGTH
Resistance: This program has a gradual progression of resistance up to 100% of maximum
effort that is sustained for 25% of workout duration. This will help build strength and
muscular endurance in the lower body and glutes. A brief cool down follows.
INTERVAL
This program takes you through high levels of intensity followed by recovery periods
of low intensity. This program utilizes and develops your “Fast Twitch” muscle fibers
which are used when performing tasks that are intense and short in duration. These
deplete your oxygen level and spike your heart rate, followed by periods of recovery
and heart rate drop to replenish oxygen. Your cardiovascular system gets programmed
to use oxygen more efficiently.
CALORIES
This program follows a quick progression up to the maximum resistance level
(default or user input level) that is sustained for 2/3 of the workout. This program will
challenge your ability to sustain your energy output for an extended period of time.
FUSION
This program takes you through high levels of cardio & strength intensity followed
by recovery periods of low intensity. This program utilizes and develops your “Fast
Twitch” muscle fibers which are used when performing tasks that are intense and
short in duration. These deplete your oxygen level and spike your heart rate, followed
by periods of recovery and heart rate drop to replenish oxygen. Your cardiovascular
system gets programmed to use oxygen more efficiently.

Programming Preset Programs
1. Select the desired program button then press the Enter key.
2. The Message Center will ask you to enter your Age. You may adjust the age setting, using the Level Up/Down keys,
then press the Enter key to accept the new number and proceed on to the next screen.
3. You are now asked to enter your Weight. You may adjust the Weight value using the Level Up/Down keys, then press
Enter to continue.
4. Next is Time. You may adjust the time and press Enter to continue.
5. Now you are asked to adjust the Max Resistance Level. This is the peak exertion level you will experience during the
program. Adjust the level and then press Enter.
6. Now you are finished editing the settings and can begin your workout by pressing the Start key. You can also go back
and modify your settings by pressing the Enter key.
7. If you want to increase or decrease the resistance at any time during the program, press the Level Up/Down keys on
the console or above the heart rate sensor grips of the stationary handlebars. This will change the resistance settings of
the entire profile, although the profile picture on the screen will not change. The reason for this is so that you can see
the entire profile at all times. If the profile picture is changed, it also would be distorted and not a true representation
of the actual profile. When you make a change to the resistance, the Message Center will show the current column and
program maximum levels of work.
8. During the program you will be able to scroll through the data in the message window by pressing the Enter key.
9. When the program ends the Message Center will show a summary of your workout. The summary will be displayed for
a short time, then the console will return to the start-up display.
26
Custom User Defined Programs
There are two customizable User programs that allow you to build and save your own workout. The
two programs, User 1 and User 2, operate exactly the same way so there is no reason to describe
them separately. You can build your own custom program by following the instructions below or you
can save any other preset program you complete as a custom program. Both programs allow you to
further personalize it by adding your name.
1. Select the User program (U1 or U2) then press Enter. If you have already saved a program to either U1 or U2, it
will be displayed and you are ready to begin. If not, you will have the option of inputing a username. In the Message
Window, the letter “A” will be blinking. Use the Level Up/Down buttons to select the appropriate first letter of your
name (pressing the LEVEL Up/Down button will switch to the letter “B”; pressing the Down button will switch to
letter “Z”). Press Enter when the desired letter is displayed. Repeat this process until all of the characters of your name
have been programmed (maximum 7 characters). When finished press Stop.
2. If there is a program already stored in User when you press the key, you will have an option to run the program as it is
or delete the program and build a new one. At the welcome message screen, when pressing Start or Enter you will
be prompted: Run Program? Use the Level Up/Down to select Yes or No. If you select No, you will then be asked if
you want to delete the currently saved program. It is necessary to delete the current program if you want to build a
new one.The Message Center will ask you to enter your Age. You may enter your age, using the Level Up/Down keys,
then press the Enter key to accept the new value and proceed on to the next screen.
3. If there is a program already stored in User when you press the key, you will have an option to run the program as it is
or delete the program and build a new one. At the welcome message screen, when pressing Start or Enter you will
be prompted: Run Program? Use the Level Up/Down to select Yes or No. If you select No, you will then be asked if
you want to delete the currently saved program. It is necessary to delete the current program if you want to build a
new one.
4. The Message Center will ask you to enter your Age. You may enter your age, using the Level Up/Down keys, then
press the Enter key to accept the new value and proceed on to the next screen.

7. Now you are asked to adjust the Max Resistance Level of the program, press Enter when resistance has been selected.
8. Now the first column will be blinking and you are asked to adjust the resistance level for the first segment (SEGMENT
> 1) of the workout by using the Level Up key. When you finish adjusting the first segment, or if you don’t want to
change, then press Enter to continue to the next segment.
9. The next segment will show the same workload resistance level as the previously adjusted segment. Repeat the same
process as the last segment then press Enter. Continue this process until all twenty segments have been set.
10. The Message Center will then tell you to press Enter to save the program. After saving the program the Message
Center says “PROG SAVED” then will give you the option to start or modify the program. Pressing Stop will exit to
the start up screen.

Heart Rate Programs
The old motto, “no pain, no gain”, is a myth that has been overpowered by the benefits of exercising
comfortably. A great deal of this success has been promoted by the use of heart rate monitors. With
the proper use of a heart rate monitor, many people find that their usual choice of exercise intensity
was either too high or too low and exercise is much more enjoyable by maintaining their heart rate in
the desired benefit range.
To determine the benefit range in which you wish to train, you must first determine your Maximum
Heart Rate. This can be accomplished by using the following formula: 220 minus your age. This will give
you the Maximum Heart Rate (MHR)for someone of your age. To determine the effective heart rate
range for specific goals you simply calculate a percentage of your MHR. Your Heart rate training zone is
50% to 90% of your maximum heart rate. 60% of your MHR is the recommended for burning fat while
80% is recommended for strengthening the cardio vascular
system. This 60% to 80% is the zone to stay in for maximum
benefit.
For someone who is 40 years old their
target heart rate zone is calculated:
220 – 40 = 180 (maximum heart rate)
180 x .6 = 108 beats per minute (60% of maximum)
180 X .8 = 144 beats per minute (80% of maximum)
So for a 40 year old the training zone would
be 108 to 144 beats per minute.
29
If you enter your age during programming the console will perform this calculation automatically.
Entering your age is used for the Heart Rate programs. After calculating your MHR you can decide
upon which goal you would like to pursue.
The two most popular reasons for, or goals, of exercise are cardiovascular fitness (training for the heart
and lungs) and weight control. The black columns on the chart above represent the MHR for a person
whose age is listed at the bottom of each column. The training heart rate, for either cardiovascular
fitness or weight loss, is represented by two different lines that cut diagonally through the chart. A
definition of the lines’ goal is in the bottom left-hand corner of the chart. If your goal is cardiovascular
fitness or if it is weight loss, it can be achieved by training at 80% or 60%, respectively, of your MHR
on a schedule approved by your physician. Consult your physician before participating in any exercise
program.
With all Spirit Fitness Heart Rate programs you may use the heart rate monitor feature without using
the Heart Rate program. This function can be used during manual mode or during any of the nine
different programs. The Heart Rate program automatically controls resistance at the pedals.
30
Rate of Perceived Exertion
Heart rate is important but listening to your body also has a lot of advantages. There are more
variables involved in how hard you should workout than just heart rate. Your stress level, physical health,
emotional health, temperature, humidity, the time of day, the last time you ate and what you ate, all
contribute to the intensity at which you should workout. If you listen to your body, it will tell you all of
these things.
The rate of perceived exertion (RPE), also know as the Borg scale, was developed by Swedish
physiologist G.A.V. Borg. This scale rates exercise intensity from 6 to 20 depending upon how you feel
or the perception of your effort.
The scale is as follows:
Rating Perception of Effort
10 Very light +
6 Minimal
7 Very,very light
11 Fairly light
8 Very,very light +
12 Comfortable
9 Very light
13 Somewhat hard
14 Somewhat hard +
15 Hard
16 Hard +
17 Very hard
18 Very hard +
19 Very,very hard
20 Maximal
You can get an approximate heart rate level for each rating by simply adding a zero to each rating. For example a
rating of 12 will result in an approximate heart rate of 120 beats per minute. Your RPE will vary depending up the
factors discussed earlier. That is the major benefit of this type of training. If your body is strong and rested, you will feel
strong and your pace will feel easier. When your body is in this condition, you are able to train harder and the RPE will
support this. If you are feeling tired and sluggish, it is because your body needs a break. In this condition, your pace will
feel harder. Again, this will show up in your RPE and you will train at the proper level for that day.

Wearing The Chest Strap
1. Attach the transmitter to the elastic strap using the interlocking key.
2. Adjust the strap as tightly as possible as long as the strap is not too tight to remain
comfortable.
3. Position the transmitter with the logo centered in the middle of your torso facing away
from your chest (some people must position the transmitter slightly left of center). Attach
the final end of the elastic strap by inserting the round end and, using the locking parts,
secure the transmitter and strap around your chest.
4. Position the transmitter directly below the pectoral muscles.
5. Sweat is the best conductor to measure very minute heart beat electrical signals.
However, plain water can also be used to pre-wet the electrodes (2 ribbed oval areas on
the reverse side of the belt and both sides of the transmitter). It’s also recommended that
you wear the transmitter strap a few minutes before your work out. Some users, because of body chemistry, have a
more difficult time in achieving a strong, steady signal at the beginning. After “warming up”, this problem lessens.
6. Your workout must be within range - distance between transmitter/receiver – to achieve a strong steady signal. The
length of range may vary somewhat but generally stay close enough to the console to maintain good, strong, reliable
readings. Wearing the transmitter directly on bare skin assures you of proper operation. If you wish, you may wear the
transmitter over a shirt. To do so, wet the areas of the shirt that the electrodes will rest upon.
Note:The transmitter is automatically activated when it detects activity from the user’s heart. Additionally, it automatically
deactivates when it does not receive any activity. Although the transmitter is water resistant, moisture can have the effect of
creating false signals, so you should take precautions to completely dry the transmitter after use to prolong battery life (estimated
transmitter battery life is 2500 hours).The replacement battery is Panasonic CR2032.
32
Erratic Operation
Caution! Do not use this Semi - Recumbent Bike for Heart Rate programs unless a steady, solid Actual
Heart Rate value is being displayed. High, wild, random numbers being displayed indicate a problem.
Areas to look for interference which may cause erratic heart rate:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
Microwave ovens, TV’s, small appliances, etc.
Fluorescent lights.
Some household security systems.
Perimeter fence for a pet.
Some people have problems with the transmitter picking up a signal from their skin. If you have problems try wearing
the transmitter upside down. Normally the transmitter will be oriented so the Spirit Fitness logo is right side up.
6. The antenna that picks up your heart rate is very sensitive. If there is an outside noise source, turning the whole
machine 90 degrees may de-tune the interference.
7. Another Individual wearing a transmitter within 3’ of your machine’s console.
If you continue to experience problems contact your dealer.
Heart Rate Program Operation
Note:You must wear the heart rate transmitter strap for these programs
Both programs operate the same, the only difference is that HR1 is set to 60% and HR2 is set to 80% of the maximum
heart rate. They both are programmed the same way.
To start an HR program follow the instructions below or just select the HR1 or HR2 program, then
the Enter button and follow the directions in the Message Center.
33
After selecting your heart rate target the program will attempt to keep you at or within 3-5
heart beats per minute of this value. Follow the prompts in the Message Center to maintain your
selected heart rate value.
1. Press the HR 1 or HR 2 key then press the Enter key.
2. The Message Center will ask you to enter your Age. You may enter your age, using the Level Up/Down keys, then
press the Enter key to accept the new value and proceed on to the next screen.
3. You are now asked to enter your Weight. You may adjust the weight value using the Level Up/Down keys, then press
Enter to continue.
4. Next is Time. You may adjust the time and press Enter to continue.
5. Now you are asked to adjust the Heart Rate Target. This is the heart rate level you will strive to maintain during the
program. Adjust the level using the Level Up/Down keys, then press Enter.
Note:The heart rate that appears is based on the % you accepted in Step 1. If you change this number it will either increase
or decrease the % from Step 1.
6. Now you are finished editing the settings and can begin your workout by pressing the Start key. You can also go back
and modify your settings by pressing the Enter key. Note: At any time during the editing of Data you can press the
Enter key to go back one screen.
7. If you want to increase or decrease the workload at any time during the program press the Level Up/Down key. This
will allow you to change your target heart rate at any time during the program.
8. During the HR 1 or HR 2 programs you will be able to scroll through the data in the Message Center by pressing the
Enter key.
9. When the program ends you may press Start to begin the same program again or Stop to exit.
34
GENERAL MAINTENANCE
1. Wipe down all areas in the sweat path with a damp cloth after each workout.
2. If a squeak, thump, clicking or rough feeling develops the main cause is most likely one of two reasons:
I. The hardware was not sufficiently tightened during assembly. All bolts that were installed
during assembly need to be tightened as much as possible. It may be necessary to use a larger wrench than the
one provided if you cannot tighten the bolts sufficiently. I cannot stress this point enough; 90% of calls to the service department for noise issues can be traced to loose hardware.
II. The crank arm nut needs to be retightened
III. If squeaks or other noises persist, check that the unit is properly leveled. There are 2 leveling pads on the bottom
of the rear stabilizer, use a 14mm wrench (or adjustable wrench) to adjust the levelers.
Engineering Mode Menu
The console has built in maintenance/diagnostic software. The software will allow you to change the console settings from
English to Metric and turn off the beeping of the speaker when a key is pressed for example. To enter the Engineering
Mode Menu, press and hold down the Start, Stop and Enter keys. Keep holding the keys down for about 5 seconds and
the Message Center will display Engineering Mode Menu. Press the Enter key to access the menu below:
1. Key Test (Will allow you to test all the keys to make sure they are functioning)
2. LCD Test (Tests all the display functions)
3. Functions (Press Enter to access settings and Up arrow to scroll)
I. Display Mode (Turn off to have the console power down automatically after 20 minutes of inactivity)
II. Pause Mode (Turn on allow 5 minutes of pause, turn off to have the console pause indefinitely)
III. ODO Reset (Resets the odometer)
IV. Units (Sets the display to readout in English or Metric display measurements)
V. Beep (Turns off the speaker so no beeping sound is heard)
VI. DA Test (Tests the brake resistance)
4. Security (Allows the keypad to be locked to prevent unauthorized use)
