Determine which leveler is not resting
completely on the floor. Loosen the nut
at the base of the leveler to allow the
leveler to rotate. Now rotate the leveler
to the left or right until the Suspension
Elliptical Trainer is stable. Lock the
adjustment by tightening the nut against
the support tube.

The Contact Hand Pulse Sensors are
included on each product to monitor
your heart rate. To use, grasp both of
the sensors with a comfortable grip
during your workout. The console will
display your heart rate. It may take
the system a few seconds to zero in
on your actual heart rate. Most people
have a grip that is conductive enough
to transmit a good signal. However,
some people have erratic heart rates or
improper body chemistry to transmit a
good signal through the touch sensitive
hand pulse grips.

SPRINT 8 is an anaerobically-based interval program.
It is effective in recruiting fast twitch muscle fibers and
improving athletic performance.
INTERVAL is an efficient workout that strengthens
your cardiovascular system by alternating work
intervals and recovery intervals. Be sure to challenge
yourself with intense work intervals.
is a program designed to target your stored body
fat. This program is generally used at a slightly lower
resistance level but runs for longer durations than
other programs.
is a challenging program designed to tone the
lower half of the body. This program includes
incline changes and user prompts for maximum
effectiveness.
SUMMIT HIKE is a variable incline program that
adds variety and targets your muscles from different
angles.

programs by setting the resistance and profile of
each segment in the program. You have the ability
to save or change the workouts whenever you wish.
CUSTOM will save your resistance and incline
changes throughout the program. Every 30 seconds
your settings will be saved to provide an identical program for your next exercise

CALF TONER
S7200
S7200
TIME, DISTANCE, CALORIES are essentially
manual programs in which duration is determined by
your particular goal.
The CALF TONER program was created to do just
that, tone your calf and lower leg while burning
calories necessary to give you slimmer legs. This
program utilizes eight 45 second SETS of increased
resistance along with direction changes to place
emphasis on the muscles in the lower legs. Standing
on the balls of the feet during these sets is an effective
way to further recruit these lower leg muscles.
WATTS
is a program that lets the user exercise
at a set work level. As you increase your strides
per minute, your resistance will decrease; if you
decrease your strides per minute, your resistance
will increase.
The QUAD TONER program was designed to target
the Quadriceps muscle group, increasing strength
and muscle tone through eight 45 second sets of
increased resistance and incline changes while
simultaneously burning calories and working the
cardiovascular system. This combination of strength
and aerobic exercise will lead to more eye-catching
and defined legs.
TOTAL BODY
The TOTAL BODY program has eight 45 seconds
sets that use changes in body position, resistance,
and incline to target all the muscle groups in your
body. This program is great for overall strength and
conditioning.

USING THE SPRINT 8 PROGRAM
USING HEART RATE TRAINING
The Sprint 8 program is an anaerobic interval program designed to build muscle,
improve speed, and naturally increase the release of Human Growth Hormone (HGH)
in your body. Producing HGH through exercise and a proper diet has been shown as
an effective way to burn fat and build lean muscle mass according to Phil Campbell,
author of Ready, Set, Go! Synergy Fitness. Please go to Mr. Campbell’s website
www.readysetgofitness.com for more details about this radical new approach to fitness.
WHAT IS HEART RATE TRAINING?
Due to the fact that this is a specialized training program, total workout time is not
displayed during the program. The interval time is displayed in the time window instead.
It takes only 20 minutes to complete the SPRINT 8 workout.
S7200
The SPRINT 8 program features intense sprint intervals followed by recovery intervals.
The program includes the following phases:
1. W
ARM-UP should gradually increase your heart rate and increase
respiration and blood flow to working muscles. The warm-up is controlled by
the user to meet your specific needs.
2. I NTERVAL TRAINING starts immediately after the warm-up with a
30-second Sprint interval. Seven Recovery Intervals of 90 seconds will
alternate with the eight 30–second Sprint Intervals. The message display will
prompt you to increase your stride rate during the Sprint Interval and decrease
stride rate during the Recovery Interval. A difference of 40 to 60 Strides Per
Minute between Sprint Interval and Recovery Interval is recommended.
3. C
OOL-DOWN helps return your body’s systems to resting levels. Less
demand is placed on your heart during recovery if an appropriate cool-down is
used following the exercise.
Heart Rate Training means exercising at an intensity that keeps you in your ideal heart
rate zone. Your personal heart rate training zone depends on your fitness goal, such
as weight loss, cardiovascular endurance, or strength building. Refer to page 38 for
more information on heart rate training zones. VISION FITNESS HRT® programs are
set up to keep you at an ideal heart rate based on your fitness goal. These programs
automatically adjust resistance based on your heart rate readings.
The S7200 console features four programs (HRT Weight Loss, HRT Cardio, HRT Interval,
and HRT Hill) that offer the benefits of Heart Rate Training.
• These programs use the predicted maximum heart rate formula (220 minus age)
to determine your predicted maximum heart rate. Some individuals have higher
or lower maximum heart rates than determined by this formula. The programs
allow you to modify your Target Heart Rate to achieve your personal goals.
HAND PULSE HEART RATE
SENSORS
The Contact Hand Pulse Sensors are
included on each product to monitor your
heart rate. To use, grasp the sensors with
a comfortable grip during your workout.
The console will display your heart rate.
Although your signal will be displayed
immediately, it may take the system a few
seconds to zero in on your actual heart
rate.
20
NOTE: The Contact Hand Pulse Sensors will work for the HRT® programs, but it is
recommended to use the telemetric chest strap for an uninterrupted signal and ease
of use.
21
TELEMETRIC HEART RATE CHEST STRAP
ALL HRT PROGRAMS
During the workout, the user will grasp the hand pulse sensors or wear the telemetric
chest strap to send their heart rate signal to a receiver in the console. The console will
continuously monitor the heart rate, adjusting the resistance level of the Suspension
Elliptical Trainer to keep your heart rate within several beats of your Target Heart Rate.
By using the SCAN key, the heart rate feedback window conveniently displays your
Heart Rate, % Heart Rate, and your Target Heart Rate to keep you informed about
your current heart rate. Each program will begin with a two-minute warm-up. When
the workout time has been completed, the console will begin a five-minute cool-down.
A D J U S T I N
TARGET HEART RATE
STRAP PLACEMENT
S7200
S7200
The wireless Telemetric Chest Strap uses a pair of electrodes on the underside of the
strap to send your heart rate signal to the console. Prior to wearing the chest strap,
moisten the two rubber electrode pads with several drops of water. These electrodes
must remain wet to provide an accurate signal. We advise using the chest strap
against your skin, but it also functions through a thin layer of wet clothing.
G
While exercising in one of the HRT®
programs, after the two-minute warmup, you may decide the Target Heart
Rate needs to be adjusted. To adjust
your Target Heart Rate, use the UP s
or DOWN t arrow keys. Push ENTER
to select.

HRT CARDIO
USING THE USER PROGRAMS
HRT WEIGHT LOSS
Set-up for the USER program requires
you to select from one of the four USER
programs. You will then go through set-up
mode like any other program, setting age,
workout time and user weight.
The HRT WEIGHT LOSS program is designed to maintain your heart rate at 65% of
your predicted maximum heart rate. The goal of this program is to burn calories by
using your body’s fat reserves as the primary fuel during exercise and to improve the
efficiency of your workout by eliminating over-training or under-training. This is a great
workout for beginners.
HRT INTERVAL
The HRT INTERVAL program is designed to increase aerobic endurance and your
overall fitness level, increase endurance of muscle fibers, and increase the amount of
calories burned in your exercise session. This program consists of alternating effort
and recovery intervals. The Target Heart Rate for your effort interval will be 80% of
your predicted maximum heart rate, while the Target Heart Rate for your recovery
intervals will be 70% of your predicted maximum heart rate. The two-minute effort
interval begins when you reach your Target Heart Rate for that particular interval.
The recovery interval duration depends on the amount of time it takes to get to your
recovery heart rate.
The USER programs allow four separate
programs to be set and stored for future
use.
When you press START and begin and will
run similar to a manual program. You will
need to adjust both resistance and incline
throughout the program. Your setting will
be recorded every 30 seconds. At the end
of your workout the message center will
ask you to PRESS AND HOLD ENTER
TO SAVE. This will allow you to save your
most recent workout, or keep the workout
that was saved previously.

HRT HILL
The HRT HILL program uses four different Target Heart Rates to build cardiovascular
strength and endurance. The resistance will adjust until your rate reaches the Target
Heart Rate for four separate hills. The hills will be set at 65%, 70%, 75%, and 80% of
your predicted maximum heart rate. The program will keep you at each heart rate level
for one minute from the time the Target Heart Rate is reached. The program will repeat
the series of hills until the workout time is complete.

S7200
The Target Goal programs allow you to
select one of four target goals for your
workout. The target goals include: Time,
Calories, Distance, and Watts. You will be
asked your goal choice in set-up. You will
then go through set-up mode like any other
program, setting age, user weight, and
resistance level.
These programs were designed to work
independently as individual workouts or
collectively as a weekly exercise routine
promoting weight loss and development
of a toned upper and lower body in only
25 minutes a day. The different muscle
programs are so effective because
they alternate cardiovascular exercise
intervals with SETS of higher intensity
exercise that use resistance, incline,
and direction changes to target specific
muscle groups stimulating strength gains,
increased muscle tone, and greater calorie
expenditures.

DEVELOPING A FITNESS PROGRAM
By purchasing this piece of VISION FITNESS exercise equipment, you have made
a commitment to exercise and now have the convenience of exercising in your own
home. Your new equipment offers the flexibility to exercise at whatever time suits
you best. It will be easier to maintain a consistent exercise program that will help you
achieve your fitness goals.
ACHIEVING YOUR FITNESS GOALS
GENERAL
EXERCISE DURATION
A common question asked is, “how much exercise do I need?” We recommend
following the guidelines set up by the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM)
for healthy aerobic activity.
• Exercise three to five days per week.
• Warm up for five to 10 minutes before aerobic activity.
• Maintain your exercise activity for 30 to 45 minutes.
• Gradually decrease the intensity of your workout, then stretch to cool down
during the last five to 10 minutes.
If weight loss is a major goal, participate in your aerobic activity at least 30 minutes
for five days each week.
GENERAL
An important step in developing a long-term fitness program is to determine your goals.
Is your primary goal to lose weight? Improve muscle tone? Relieve stress? Prepare
for the spring racing schedule? Knowing what your goals are will help you develop
a more successful exercise program. If possible, try to define your personal goals
in precise, measurable terms over specific periods of time. Examples of these goals
might include:
• Decrease your waistline by two inches over the next two months.
• Run the local 5K race this summer.
• Get 30 minutes of cardiovascular exercise at least five days per week.
• Improve your race time by two minutes over the next year.
• Move from walking a mile to jogging a mile within the next three months.
The more specific the goal, the easier it will be to track your progress. If your goals are
long-term, divide them into monthly and weekly segments. Long-term goals can lose
some of the motivational benefits. Short-term goals are easier to achieve and will allow
you to see the progress you are making. Every time you reach a goal, it is important
to set a new goal. This will lead to a healthier lifestyle and will provide the motivation
that you will need to move forward.
EXERCISE GUIDELINES
EXERCISE INTENSITY
The next question asked is, “how hard do I need to work out?” To reap the most
cardiovascular benefits from your workout, it is necessary to exercise within a
recommended intensity range. We recommend monitoring your exercise heart rate to
measure exercise intensity.
TRACK YOUR PROGRESS
Now that you have set your exercise goals, it is time to write them down and make
an exercise schedule that will help you achieve them. By keeping a fitness diary, you
will stay motivated and know where you are in terms of reaching your goals. As time
goes on, you will be able to look back with pride to see how far you’ve come. For your
convenience, we have included exercise log sheets in the wellness tools section of our
website at www.visionfitness.com.
36
37
TARGET HEART RATE
Target Heart Rate is a percentage of your maximum heart rate. Target Heart Rate
will vary for each individual depending on age, current level of conditioning, and
personal fitness goals. Exercise heart rate should range from 55% to 85% of your
maximum heart rate. As a point of reference, we use the predicted maximum heart
rate formula of (220 minus age) to determine your heart rate training zone. Please
use the following chart to determine your predicted Target Heart Rate.
BALANCED FITNESS
While cardiovascular exercise has been the primary method of fitness for many
programs over the years, it should not be the only method. Strength Training
and Flexibility Training have become more popular as exercise has developed.
Incorporating Strength and Flexibility Training into your current exercise program
will give you the balance you need to improve your athletic performance, reduce
susceptibility to injury, increase metabolic rate, increase bone density, and reach your
goals faster.
STRENGTH TRAINING
GENERAL
GENERAL
Strength Training was once known as an activity performed by young males only. That
has changed with the advances in scientific research on Strength Training over the
last 20 years or so. Research has proven that, after age 30, we begin to lose muscle
mass if we do not incorporate Strength Training into our exercise program. With this
decrease in muscle mass, our ability to burn calories decreases, our physical ability to
do work decreases and our susceptibility to injuries increases. The good news is that,
with a proper Strength Training program, we can maintain or even build muscle as
we age. A proper Strength Training program will work the muscle groups of the upper
and lower body. There are now many options available for Strength Training including:
yoga, Pilates, selectorized machines, free weights, stability balls or medicine balls,
exercise tubing and body weight exercises, just to name a few.
Recommendations for a minimum Strength Training program include:
FREQUENCY: Two to three days per week
VOLUME: One to three sets consisting of eight to 12 repetitions.
EXAMPLE:
If you are a 30-year-old, your predicted maximum heart rate is 190 based on the (220
minus age) formula.
220 – 30 = 190
Based on the chart above, your heart rate training zone is 104 to 161, which is
55%–85% of 190.
