1 SETUP
3 ft” (1m)
Read the Operation Manual before setting up the Life Fitness Recumbent Bike. Place the
Recumbent Bike where it will be used before beginning the setup procedure.
WHERE TO PLACE THE LIFECYCLE EXERCISE BIKE
Follow all Safety Instructions in Section 1.1 and move the Life Fitness Recumbent Bike
to the location in which it will be used. See Section 4, Specifications, for the dimensions
of the footprint. Allow 1 foot of clearance in front of the Life Fitness Recumbent Bike to
allow for movement of the pedal levers and at least 2 ft. (0.6 m) on the side. It should be
easy to mount the Life Fitness Recumbent Bike from the side.
2 ft. (0.6 m)

3 ft” (1m)
How to stabilize the Lifecycle Exercise Bike
After placing the bike in position, check the unit’s stability by attempting to rock it from
side to side. Any slight rocking indicates that the unit must be leveled. Determine which foot is not resting completely
on the floor. Loosen the jam nut (A) with an open-end 9/16-inch wrench, and rotate the stabilizing foot (B) to lower it.
Verify that the bike is stable, and repeat the adjustment as necessary until the unit no longer rocks. Lock the adjustment
by tightening the jam nut against the stabilizer bar.

B
How to Adjust the Seat
A properly adjusted seat is extremely important in any bike-oriented exercise activity and the Lifecycle Exercise Bike is no exception. If the seat is too close, excessive
strain will be placed on the knees and quadriceps muscles; if the seat is too far, the
resulting reaching action will irritate the feet, ankles, hips and knees.
Sit on the seat and place the balls of the feet on the pedals. An optimum position
will allow movement through the bottom of the stroke without locking the knees or
shifting in the seat. The knees should have a slight bend at the point of fullest leg
extension.
If the seat needs to be adjusted, lift the spring-loaded adjusting handle located on
the right, front side of the seat. Slide the seat forward or backward as necessary to
the proper position and release the pin to complete engagement. Gently slide the
seat forward and backward a small distance to ensure it is locked into place. Check
the seat distance again and re-adjust it if necessary.
CAUTION: Do not attempt to adjust the seat while pedaling the bike. Doing
so, or failing to insert the seat pin completely may result in an uncomfortable
workout or cause injury.
MISE EN GARDE : Ne pas essayer d’ajuster la selle pendant le pédalage.
Tout ajustage en cours de fonctionnement ou toute insertion incomplète de
la goupille de la selle pourrait nuire à l’exercice ou entraîner des blessures
7
How to Adjust the Pedal Straps
The bike pedal straps keep the user’s shoes on the pedals during a
workout. The straps should fit comfortably, but they also should be
tight enough to prevent shoes from slipping at any point in the pedaling rotation. Before working out, a user should test and adjust the
tightness of the straps.
The safety straps on the foot pedals can be adjusted to fit a variety
of shoe sizes. The straps are held in place by two knobs that extend
from either side of each pedal. The “inner” knob extends sideways,
that is, toward the bike. The “outer” knob extends downward. The
ends of each strap are perforated with slots that fit tightly over the
knobs. The “inner” end of each strap is perforated with two slots, and
the “outer” segment of the strap is perforated with a row of slots.
To tighten or loosen a strap, grasp the outer end, and pull it back,
away from the knob, until the strap slides off. Pull the strap out through the outer loop on the pedal. Rest the foot on
the pedal, and wrap the strap over the foot to determine the desired length. Thread the strap through the outer loop
on the pedal, tuck it under the pedal, select the appropriate slot, and pull that slot down over the knob, until the top of
the knob pops through the slot. A click indicates that the strap is locked into place.
Starting Up the Bike Console
When a user begins pedaling on the Lifecycle exercise bike, the unit’s Auto-Start feature powers up the console, causing the console display to light up and the MESSAGE CENTER to flash a prompt: “Select workout or PRESS QUICK
START.” If the user does not make a selection in 20 seconds, the console automatically starts a MANUAL workout. If the
user stops pedaling for more than 15 seconds, the console shuts down. Alternately, the user may press the START key
to power up the console.
Using the Power Assist Option (CLSR)
The Lifecycle exercise bike’s optional Power Assist feature makes it possible for the console to be powered by an external electrical source, eliminating the need to pedal at a minimum speed to supply constant power to the console. With
this option, users who wish to ride the bike for rehabilitative exercise may pedal at a rate below the minimum without
losing console power. Use only the external power supply provided by Life Fitness in order to insure against unsafe
operation.
Enabling the Power Assist option requires a an optional kit. To order the kit, contact Life Fitness Customer Support Services. See page one for contact information.
The power connector is located in front of the rear stabilizer bar, in the shroud opening, on the underside of the bike.
Grounding Instructions (Applicable for Units Using External Power Supply)
This Life Fitness product must be properly grounded. If the unit malfunctions or breaks down, proper grounding provides a path of least resistance for the electric current, which reduces the risk of shock to anyone touching or using the
equipment. Each unit is equipped with an electrical cord, which includes an equipment grounding conductor and a
grounding plug. The plug must be inserted into an outlet that has been properly installed and grounded in accordance
with all local codes and ordinances.
A temporary adapter MUST NOT BE USED to connect this plug to a two-pole receptacle in North America. If a properly grounded, 15amp outlet is not available, one must be installed by a qualified electrician.
IL EST ABSOLUMENT INTERDIT d’employer un adaptateur temporaire pour brancher cette fiche sur une
prise bipolaire en Amérique du Nord. Si aucune prise de 15 A correctement mise à la terre n’est disponible, en faire installer une par un électricien qualifié.
DANGER: A risk of electrical shock may result from improper connection of the equipment-grounding
conductor. Check with a qualified electrician if in doubt as to proper grounding technique. DO NOT
modify the plug provided with the product. If it will not fit an electrical outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician. Any modification to the electrical plug will result in a voided warranty.
Un branchement incorrect du conducteur de mise à la terre peut entraîner des risques de décharge
électrique. Consulter un électricien si des doutes subsistent quant à la technique de mise à la terre. NE
PAS MODIFIER la fiche fournie avec l’appareil. Si elle ne s’adapte pas à une prise, faire installer une prise
correcte par un électricien qualifié. Toutemodification à la fiche annule la garantie.
8
CHECK FOR POWER
The console is powered by a rechargeable 6-volt battery. Check the battery by pressing the START key. The console
should light up, and the MESSAGE CENTER should display a prompt to set up a workout. If this does not occur, mount
the Life Fitness Recumbent Bike and begin pedaling. The console should then light up, making it possible to program a
workout. Pedal for 10 to 20 minutes at 1.5 mph (2.4 kph) or faster during a workout to charge the battery. Afterwards, the
pedal action during workouts keeps the battery charged. If the console still does not light, contact Life Fitness Customer
Support Services (see page one of this manual for more information).
FITNESS AND ENTERTAINMENT NETWORKING
Two interchangeable network ports allow the Life Fitness Recumbent Bike to be connected to a fitness entertainment
system and/or a network, such as FitLinxx™ interactive fitness network.
• Networking: The built-in networking ports allow the unit to exchange workout information with a fitness network database.
• Fitness Entertainment: The network connection enables the console to power a third-party receiver for use with a service such as the Cardio Theater® entertainment system or the BroadcastVision™ entertainment system.
These ports are located on the back of the console and are enclosed by a removable cover. Any use of the ports for other
than their intended purpose could void the product warranty.

2.2 Console Overlay Description
A.
WORKOUT PROFILE window: This window displays shapes, made of columns of lights, that represent the
levels of intensity in a workout-in-progress. The height of the first column on the left side of the window is
proportional to the current level of intensity.
During a FAT BURN, CARDIO, HEART RATE HILL, HEART RATE INTERVAL, or EXTREME HEART RATE
workout, which requires the use of a Polar® telemetry heart rate chest strap or the Lifepulse system sensors,
the Workout Profile window displays a flashing heart shape to request the user’s heart rate signal. If the console does not detect a signal, the MESSAGE CENTER displays the prompt “NEED HEART RATE - PLACE HANDS ON SENSORS OR USE TELEMETRY STRAP”. If the console does not receive the signal within three minutes, the
workout automatically is converted to a MANUAL program.
B.
MESSAGE CENTER: This window displays step-by-step instructions for setting up a workout. During a workout, it displays statistics about the progress of the workout:
• Heart Rate: the detected heart rate if the user is wearing the chest strap or grasping the Lifepulse system
sensors.
• Distance: the total distance traveled in miles (or kilometers if enabled).
• RPM (Revolutions per Minute): the pedaling speed or rate.
• Calories: the number of calories burned since beginning the workout.
If configured to do so, the MESSAGE CENTER displays other values each time the intensity level changes during the
workout:
• Calories per Hour: the rate of calories burned per hour.
OR
• Watts: effort level in Watts. The Watt is a unit of power output or the expression of the mechanical rate of work.
• METs: effort level in METs. The MET is an expression of the rate of work for the human body at rest, or a
metabolic equivalent; one MET is approximately equal to the metabolism of a person at rest.
C.
NUMERIC keypad: Use these keys to enter values, such as length of workout, weight, age, target heart rate, and intensity level. While a workout is in progress, numeric keys can be used to set new intensity levels or
change the target heart rate in the FAT BURN, CARDIO, HEART RATE HILL, HEART RATE INTERVAL, and
EXTREME HEART RATE workouts. The ARROW keys have a similar function, except that they change workout parameters by single increments.
D.
BIKE MODE: Press this key to activate the Bike workout mode in which the rate of calories burned and the total distance travelled increase automatically as the user increases the pedaling speed.
E.
CONSTANT CAL./HOUR: Press this key to activate this alternate workout mode, which enables a user to
maintain a consistent rate of calories burned per hour.

Heart Rate Zone Training®
3.1 Why Heart Rate Zone Training Exercise?
Research shows that maintaining a specific heart rate while exercising is the optimal way to monitor the intensity of a
workout and to achieve maximum results. That is the idea behind the Life Fitness Heart Rate Zone Training® approach
to exercise.
Zone Training identifies an exerciser’s ideal heart rate range, or zone, for burning fat or increasing cardiovascular fitness. The zone is a percentage of the theoretical maximum (HRmax), and its value depends on the workout. The maximal Heart Rate formula is defined by the American College of Sports Medicine’s “Guidelines for Exercise Testing and
Prescription”, 8th Edition, 2010. HRmax equals to 206.9 minus the total of 0.67 multiplied by a person’s age.
HR Max = 206.9 - (0.67 *age)
The Life Fitness Recumbent Bike features five exclusive workouts designed to take full advantage of the benefits of
Heart Rate Zone Training+ exercise:
• FAT BURN
• CARDIO
• HEART RATE HILL™ • EXTREME HEART RATE™
• HEART RATE INTERVAL™
Each workout offers different benefits, as discussed in Section 4, The Workouts.
NOTE: Consulting a fitness trainer is recommended for defining specific fitness goals and designing a workout program.
To change the target heart rate during a workout, simply enter a new target heart rate using the NUMERIC KEYPAD.
To switch between programs during a workout, use the WORKOUT SELECTION KEYS.
The Heart Rate Zone Training® workout programs measure heart rate. Wear the optional Polar® telemetry heart rate
chest strap, or grip the Lifepulse™sensors, to enable the Recumbent Bike’s on-board computer to monitor the heart
rate during a workout. The computer automatically adjusts the incline level to maintain the target heart rate based on
the actual heart rate.

3.2 Heart Rate Monitoring
The Lifepulse™ Digital Heart Rate Monitoring System
The patented Lifepulse system sensors are the built-in heart rate monitoring system on the Life Fitness Recumbent
Bike. For the most accurate reading possible, during a workout:
•
•
•
Grasp the sensors (A) firmly.
Hold each sensors at the vertical midpoint.
Keep hands steady and in place.
The console displays the heart rate within 10 to 40 seconds after the user grasps the sensors. The following factors may
affect a Lifepulse reading: incorrect hand placement on the sensors, upper body activity, lotion or dirt on hands, and
excessive or insufficient pressure used when gripping the sensors.
A

16
The Optional Polar® Telemetry Heart Rate Chest Strap
The Life Fitness Recumbent Bike is equipped with Polar® telemetry, a heart rate monitoring system in which electrodes,
pressed against the skin, transfer heart rate signals to the Recumbent Bike console. These electrodes are attached to a
chest strap that the user wears during the workout. The Polar telemetry heart rate chest strap is optional. Contact Life
Fitness Customer Support Services to order.
See the diagram below for correct positioning of the Polar telemetry heart rate chest strap. The electrodes (A), which
are the two grooved surfaces on the underside of the strap, must remain wet to transmit accurately the electrical impulses of the heart back to the receiver. Moisten the electrodes. Then, secure the Polar telemetry heart rate chest strap
as high under the chest muscles as possible. The strap should be snug, but comfortable enough to allow for normal
breathing.
The transmitter strap delivers an optimal heart rate reading when the electrodes are in direct contact with bare skin.
However, it functions properly through a thin layer of wet clothing. If it becomes necessary to re-moisten the Polar
telemetry heart rate chest strap electrodes, grasp the center of the strap, pull it away from the chest to expose the two
electrodes, and re-moisten them.
During the setup of a heart rate zone training workout, the user will be required to enter a start-up speed. If a Polar telemetry heart rate chest strap is not detected, the maximum allowable speed is 4.5 mph. If a Polar telemetry heart rate
chest strap is detected, the maximum speed is 14 mph.

4.3 Workout Descriptions
QUICK START is the fastest way to begin exercising and bypasses the steps of selecting a specific workout program. The intensity
level for the workout is set automatically and remains the same unless manually changed. To change the level, use the LEVEL arrow
keys or use the NUMERIC KEYPAD to enter a higher or lower level number.
MANUAL
The MANUAL program sets an intensity level that does not change automatically. While the workout is in progress, increase or lower
the intensity level as desired using the arrow keys.
RANDOM
The RANDOM program creates a terrain of hills and valleys that varies with each workout. More than one million different patterns
are possible.
FAT BURN
The FAT BURN workout is designed to maintain a user’s heart rate at 65% of the theoretical maximum (HRmax) for optimal results.
Throughout the workout, the user wears a Polar telemetry heart rate chest strap or grasps the LifepulseTM sensors. If the user is not
wearing a Polar telemetry heart rate chest strap, the WORKOUT PROFILE WINDOW displays a heart shape, and the MESSAGE CENTER displays a prompt to grasp the sensors. The console continuously monitors and displays the heart rate, adjusting the intensity
level of the Recumbent Bike to reach and maintain the target. This system eliminates over-training and under-training, and it maximizes the aerobic benefits of exercise by using the body’s fat stores for fuel.
CARDIO
The CARDIO workout is virtually identical to Fat Burn, however the target heart rate is calculated at 80% of the theoretical maximum
(HRmax). The higher target promotes cardiovascular improvement by placing a heavier workload on the heart muscle.
PERSONAL TRAINER
• CUSTOM WORKOUTS
The Recumbent Bike console stores up to six custom workouts. For information on creating these workouts, see Programming Custom Workouts in Section 6.
To use CUSTOM WORKOUTS, press the PERSONAL TRAINER KEY repeatedly until the MESSAGE CENTER displays “personal trainer
workouts”. Then, press ENTER. The MESSAGE CENTER displays a prompt to select a custom workout number, ranging from 1 to 6.
Using the ARROW KEYS or the NUMERIC KEYPAD, select the number and press ENTER. If a workout has not been created for that
number, the MESSAGE CENTER simply scrolls to the next number. If a workout has been created for the selected number, the MESSAGE CENTER displays successive prompts to enter the weight and choose a speed. After these entries are provided, the workout
begins.
• DISTANCE GOAL
This workout is designed to build endurance. The objective is to cover a certain distance in miles. Once the objective is met, the
workout automatically goes into a cool down phase, and ends afterward.
NOTE: When a user sets this goal with the TIME ARROW keys, the console displays the values in .10-mile increments.
• CALORIES GOAL
This workout is designed to promote weight loss and weight control. The objective is to burn a certain number of calories in the
selected time duration. Once the objective is met, the workout automatically goes into a cool down phase, and ends afterward.
• TIME IN ZONE GOAL
The Time in Zone Goal program, a feature of Heart Rate Zone Training®, enhances FAT BURN and CARDIO workouts by setting a duration for staying within the target zone as the workout goal. Once the duration objective is met, the workout goes into a cool down
phase.
• SPORT TRAINING™
This distance-goal workout is designed for runners training for races. The program creates realistic terrains by setting different
incline levels throughout the course. Incline grades depend on the difficulty levels selected during the workout setup. A 1.5% incline
grade, which is the baseline level, simulates a flat running surface. A zero percent grade simulates running downhill. Incline durations range between 30 and 60 seconds. The course ends when the distance goal is met. Two Sport Training programs are available
on the Recumbent Bike:
24
ƒƒ
Sport Training (5K) is a 5-kilometer, or 3.1-mile, course.
ƒƒ
Sport Training (10K) is a 10-kilometer, or 6.2-mile, course.
HILL
The Life Fitness-patented HILL workout offers a variety of configurations for interval training. Intervals are periods of
intense cardiovascular exercise separated by regular periods of lower-intensity exercise. The WORKOUT PROFILE window represents these high and low intervals as columns of illuminated LEDs, which together have the appearance of
hills and valleys. The computerized interval training workout has been scientifically demonstrated to promote greater
cardiorespiratory improvement than steady-pace training.
The HILL workout goes through four phases, each marked by different intensity levels. The WORKOUT PROFILE window displays the progress of these phases. As noted in the descriptions below, the heart rate should be measured at
two stages in the workout to gauge its effectiveness. Wear the Polar telemetry heart rate chest strap or continuously
grip the Lifepulse™ handles. The MESSAGE CENTER does not display a request for a heart rate measurement, as it
does with CARDIO, FAT BURN and the HEART RATE ZONE TRAINING programs.
1.
Warm-up is a phase of low, gradually rising resistance, which brings the heart rate into the lower end of the target zone and increases respiration and blood flow to working muscles.
2.
Plateau increases the intensity slightly and keeps it steady, to bring the heart rate to the low end of the target zone. Check the heart rate at the end of this phase.
3.
Interval Training is a series of increasingly steeper hills alternating with valleys or stints of recovery. The heart rate should rise to the high end of the target zone. Check the heart rate at the end of this phase.
4.
Cool Down is a low-intensity phase that allows the body to begin removing lactic acid and other exercise by-
products which build up in muscles and contribute to soreness.
Each column, as seen in the WORKOUT PROFILE WINDOW and the chart above, represents one interval. The overall
duration of the workout determines the length of each interval. Each workout is made up of 20 intervals, so the duration of each interval is equal to the duration of the entire workout divided by 20.
1 to 9 minutes: A workout with a duration of less than 10 minutes is insufficient for the HILL program to complete all
four phases adequately. The program therefore condenses a workout of this duration at various stages.
10 to 19 minutes: The interval durations initially are set at 30 seconds for a 10-minute workout. For every minute over
10, each interval increases by three seconds. A 15-minute workout consists of 20 intervals at 45 seconds each.
20 to 99 minutes: All intervals last 60 seconds. If the user adds minutes to the pre-set duration while the workout is in
progress, the program adds hills and valleys that are identical to the first eight intervals of the Interval Training phase.
This pattern repeats until the workout is completed.
25
HEART RATE HILL™
This program combines the standard HILL workout profile with the concept of Heart Rate Zone Training. The default
target heart rate is calculated as 80% of the theoretical maximum (HRmax), but the user can adjust the target rate during the workout setup. All hills and valleys are percentages of HRmax. The workout consists of three hills that target
three heart rate goals: The first hill brings the heart rate to 70% of HRmax. The second hill increases the rate to 75%
of HRmax. The third hill matches the Target Heart Rate bringing the heart rate to 80% of HRmax. The valley always is
defined as 65 percent of HRmax.
After a standard three-minute warm-up, the workout progresses toward the first hill and heart rate goal. Once the user
reaches 70% of HRmax, the hill continues for one minute. When the minute expires, the level decreases into a valley.
Once the user’s heart rate falls to 65% of HRmax, the valley continues for one minute. Then, the next hill begins with its
corresponding heart rate goal. After the user completes the third hill/valley pair, the program returns to the first hill and
repeats the cycle as long as the duration allows. At the end of the duration, the workout goes into a cool-down phase.
If the heart rate goes above the theoretical maximum for more than 45 seconds, the Recumbent Bike automatically
goes into pause mode. If the user does not reach a heart rate goal after five minutes, the MESSAGE CENTER displays
a prompt to increase or decrease speed, depending on whether the workout is in a hill or valley phase. The program
does not proceed to a new heart rate goal until the user reaches the current goal.

This program also combines the standard HILL workout profile with the concept of Heart Rate Zone Training. The
default target heart rate is calculated as 80% of the theoretical maximum (HRmax), but the user can adjust the target
rate during the workout setup. The workout alternates between a hill, which brings the heart rate up to the target
rate of 80% of HRmax, and a valley which brings the heart rate down to 65% of HRmax. After a standard three-minute
warm-up, the workout progresses toward the first hill and heart rate goal. Once the goal is reached, the hill continues
for three minutes, then the level decreases into a valley. Once the 65% of HRmax goal is reached, the valley continues
for three minutes, after which the next hill begins. The user’s fitness level determines the number of hills and valleys
encountered within the duration. At the end of the duration, the workout goes into a cool down phase. If the heart
rate goes above the theoretical maximum for more then 45 seconds, the Recumbent Bike automatically goes into
pause mode. If the user does not reach a heart rate goal after five minutes, the MESSAGE CENTER displays a prompt
to increase or decrease speed, depending on whether the workout is in a hill or valley phase. The program does not
proceed to a new heart rate goal until the user reaches the current goal.

EXTREME HEART RATE™
This intense, varied workout is designed to help more experienced users to break through fitness improvement plateaus. The workout alternates between two target heart rates as quickly as possible. The effect is similar to that of running sprints. The user must wear a Polar telemetry heart rate chest strap or grip the Lifepulse sensors throughout the
workout.
NOTE: It is recommended that users who run at speeds faster than 4.5 mph wear the Polar telemetry heart rate chest
strap and do not use the Lifepulse sensors.
When setting up the workout, the user enters a target heart rate and selects a walk speed and a jog speed. After a
standard three-minute warm-up, the Recumbent Bike accelerates to the jog speed, and the incline increases, until the
user reaches the target heart rate goal of 85% of the theoretical maximum (HRmax). That target rate is maintained for a
stabilizing period. Then, the incline is reduced to 0%, and the Recumbent Bike slows to the walk speed. When the heart
rate falls to the 65% of HRmax goal, it is maintained there for a stabilizing period. The program repeats the alternating
of speeds and incline levels, continuing this pattern throughout the duration.
If the user does not reach a heart rate goal after five minutes, the MESSAGE CENTER displays a prompt to increase or
decrease speed, depending on whether the workout is in a hill or valley phase. The program does not proceed to a
new heart rate goal until the user reaches the current goal.

WATTS
This workout targets a rate of effort equal to a certain number of Watts. A Watt is a unit of power that measures the
amount of mechanical work required to operate a device, such as a Lifecycle exercise bike. It is roughly equal to .25
calories per hour. The workout program automatically alters the intensity level to maintain the appropriate rate of effort. By default, this workout is turned off. For information on making it available, see Section 5, titled System Menu.
METS
This workout targets a rate of effort equal to a certain number of METs. A MET is a unit of measurement used to express
the metabolic rate of work (oxygen consumption per unit of body weight) required to perform a task. One MET is approximately equal to a person’s metabolism when seated and relaxed. By default, this workout is turned off. For information on making it available, see Section 5, titled Optional Settings.
AEROBICS TRAINER
In this workout, the MESSAGE CENTER continuously prompts the user to switch between a high pedaling speed and
a low pedaling speed. These speed intervals alternate in a pattern that promotes a “build-up” in the intensity of the
workout, followed by a “build-down” in intensity.
The workout consists of 32 intervals, which are divided into groups of four. In the first group, the user encounters one
fast interval followed by three slow intervals. The second group features two fast intervals followed by two slow intervals. The third group features three fast intervals followed by one slow interval. The fourth group, which is the most
intense point of the workout, features four fast intervals. Afterward, the workout decreases in intensity, concluding with
a group of four, consecutive, slow intervals. See the chart below:

FIT TEST
The Recumbent Bike FIT TEST program is another exclusive feature of this versatile Recumbent Bike. The Fit Test workout estimates cardiovascular fitness and can be used to monitor improvements in endurance every four to six weeks.
The user must grasp the hand sensors (if equipped) when prompted, or wear a Polar telemetry heart rate chest strap
as the test score calculation is based on a heart rate reading. The workout duration will be five minutes total with a one
minute warm-up at 0% incline followed by four additional minutes at a 5% incline. Immediately afterward, the console
will take the user’s heart rate reading, calculate a fitness score and display the score in the MESSAGE CENTER.
The Fit Test is considered to be a submax VO2 (volume of oxygen) test. It gauges how well the heart supplies oxygenated blood to the exercising muscles and how efficiently those muscles receive oxygen from the blood. Physicians and
exercise physiologists generally regard this test as a good measure of aerobic capacity.
To set up the Fit Test:
ƒƒ
Press the FIT TEST button repeatedly until the FIT TEST option appears in the message center. Press ENTER to
select the FIT TEST option.
ƒƒ
The message center will prompt for a user weight (ENTER WEIGHT). Use the NUMERIC KEYS or UP/DOWN
ARROW KEYS to input your weight. Press ENTER to accept the weight.
ƒƒ
The message center will next prompt for a user age (ENTER AGE). Use the NUMERIC KEYS or UP/DOWN
ARROW KEYS to input your age. Press ENTER to accept the age.
ƒƒ
The message center will next prompt for a user gender (SELECT GENDER). Using the UP/DOWN ARROW
KEYS, select a gender. Press ENTER to accept the gender selection.
ƒƒ
The MESSAGE CENTER will next prompt for a workout level (ENTER speed)(2-4.5 mph). Consult the following
recommended fit test level chart for an appropriate effort level based on your age, gender and activity level.
Use the NUMERIC KEYS or UP/DOWN speed ARROW KEYS to enter the corresponding level.
After the five-minute FIT TEST is completed, a FIT TEST score and rating will be displayed.

If you make an error when entering any Fit Test data, you can correct it by pressing CLEAR, inputting the correct information, and pressing ENTER.
It is important for you to take the Fit Test under similar circumstances each time. Your heart rate is dependent on many
factors, including:
ƒƒ amount of sleep the previous night (at least seven hours is recommended)
ƒƒ
time of day
ƒƒ
time you last ate (two to four hours after the last meal is recommended)
ƒƒ
time since you last drank a liquid containing caffeine or alcohol, or smoked a cigarette (at least four hours is
recommended)
ƒƒ
time since you last exercised (at least six hours is recommended)
For the most accurate Fit Test results, you should perform the Fit Test on three consecutive days and average the three
scores.
NOTE: To receive a proper Fit Test score, the work done must be within a training heart rate zone that is 60% to 85% of
the theoretical maximum heart rate (HRmax).

MILITARY FITNESS TEST
The Lifecycle Exercise Bike features an Air Force Physical Readiness Tests (PRT). This test is similar to the fit test workout,
except that it does not have a preset time goal. The Air Force PRT is located in the Personal Trainer Workouts.
To begin an Air Force PRT:
Press the PERSONAL TRAINER button repeatedly until the AIR FORCE PRT appears in the message
center and press ENTER to select the AIR FORCE PRT option.
The message center will prompt for a user weight (ENTER WEIGHT). Enter a weight between 75 - 400 pounds using the NUMERIC KEYS. Press ENTER to accept the weight.
The message center will next prompt for a user height (ENTER HEIGHT). Enter a height between 36 - 90 inches using the NUMERIC KEYS. Press ENTER to accept the height.
The message center will next prompt for a user age (ENTER AGE). Enter an age between 17 - 70 years using the NUMERIC KEYS. Press ENTER to accept the age.
The message center will next prompt for a user gender (SELECT GENDER). Using the UP/DOWN ARROW KEYS, select a gender. Press ENTER to accept the gender selection.
The message center will next prompt for a user Fitness Level (“Do you participate in Aerobic Activity at least
20 minutes per session 3+ times per week”). Using the UP/DOWN ARROW KEYS, select ‘YES’ or ‘NO’. Press ENTER to accept the selection.
The Air Force PRT begins after the user selects their Fitness Level and presses ENTER. During the PRT the user must
maintain 50-80 RPM. If the user pedals outside this range, a warning message is displayed. If the user continues to
pedal outside this range for more than 10 seconds, the test is terminated. If the user’s heart rate exceeds 85% of their
theoretical maximum heart rate, the test is also terminated. The Air Force PRT requires a user’s heart rate throughout
the test. Heart rate is recorded every minute, and if it is not detected, the test will terminate. The PRT starts with a 2
minute warm-up. After this warm-up, an initial wattage setting is determined from the user’s input data. The PRT then
monitors a user’s heart rate and determines if more resistance is needed. After 6 minutes at a constant wattage, the
exercise bike will try to calculate a score.
SIX PRE-SET WORKOUTS
AROUND THE WORLD, CASCADES, FOOT HILLS, INTERVAL, KILIMANJARO, and SPEED TRAINING are variations
of the HILL workout. These workouts cannot be changed “on the fly.”
AROUND THE WORLD is an interval-training workout in which the hills resemble scenes of various geographical
areas.
CASCADES is a two-peak workout in which intensity levels gradually increase and decrease.
FOOT HILLS is a rolling hill workout with low intensity levels.
INTERVAL is a Hill workout in which intensity levels rise and fall. The higher levels gradually incline toward a peak and
then gradually decline.
KILIMANJARO is a Hill workout in which the intensity levels gradually incline toward one ultimate peak and then
gradually decline.
SPEED TRAINING is a Hill workout in which the intensity level alternates between high and low levels very quickly to
simulate a typical speed-training workout. 4.4 PERSONAL TRAINER WORKOUTS
Using the console, fitness club managers and other authorized personnel can create up to six custom workouts for the
Life Fitness Recumbent Bike. Options include custom interval heart rate and hill workouts.
Interval Heart Rate: The trainer can design a workout that sets a different target heart rate for each interval and adjusts
the resistance to the user’s heart rate.
Hill: The trainer can create a custom hill workout that sets a different intensity level for each interval.
USING PERSONAL TRAINER WORKOUTS
Once PERSONAL TRAINER workouts are created, users can access them with the PERSONAL TRAINER key. Each custom workout is identified by a numeral, from 1 to 6. To select these workouts, press the PERSONAL TRAINER key. When
