The first step in knowing the right intensity for your training is to
find out your maximum heart rate (max HR = 220 – your age).
The age-based method provides an average statistical prediction
of your max HR and is a good method for the majority of people,
especially those new to heart rate training. The most precise
and accurate way of determining your individual max HR is to
have it clinically tested by a cardiologist or exercise physiologist
through the use of a maximal stress test. If you are over the age
of 40, overweight, have been sedentary for several years or
have a history of heart disease in your family, clinical testing is
recommended. This chart gives examples of the heart rate range
for a 30-year-old exercising at 5 different heart rate zones. For
example, a 30-year-old’s max HR is 220 – 30 = 190 BPM and
90% max HR is 190 × 0.9 = 171 BPM.

• There is a warm-up built into this program.
• After the warm-up, the resistance will automatically adjust to
bring your heart rate within 5 beats of the target number you
selected at the beginning of the program.
• If there is no heart rate detected, the unit will not change
resistance levels up or down.
• If your heart rate is 25 beats over your target zone, the program
will shut down.

CONSOLE
Sprint 8®: 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 to be 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 efficient new approach to fitness.
1) WARM-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) INTERVAL TRAINING starts immediately after the warm-up with a 30-second sprint interval. Seven recovery intervals of one
minute and 30 seconds will alternate with the eight 30-second sprint intervals. The message display will prompt you to increase
your RPMs during the sprint interval and decrease RPMs during the recovery interval. A difference of 30 to 50 RPM between
sprint interval and recovery interval is recommended for bikes. A difference of 20 to 30 RPMs between sprint interval and
recovery interval is recommended for elliptical trainers.
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.
In order to keep track of each segment/interval, the segment time is counted down in the timer. It takes only 20 minutes to complete
the Sprint 8 workout.

Target Heart rate programs: A workout designed to keep you in your specified target heart rate zone.
This workout requires you to wear a wireless heart rate strap. See below for calculating your target heart rate.
Constant Watts: This workout automatically adjusts the resistance to keep you within a set watts range and
maintains your desired level of exercise intensity.
CONSOLE

Goal programs: A series of workouts that allow you to select a specific goal that you would like to achieve.
HR %: Program adjusts resistance to bring you to your desired % maximum heart rate.
Ellipticals:
5K: A workout with a fixed distance of 5 kilometers (3.1 miles). Resistance is adjusted automatically throughout the workout.
10K: A workout with a fixed distance of 10 kilometers (6.2 miles). Resistance is adjusted automatically throughout the workout.
Bikes:
20K: A workout with a fixed distance of 20 kilometers (12.4 miles). Resistance is adjusted automatically throughout the workout.
30K: A workout with a fixed distance of 30 kilometers (18.6 miles). Resistance is adjusted automatically throughout the workout.
Calories goal: A workout that allows you to select a specific number of calories you would like to burn during your workout.
Increasing the calorie goal of the workout will increase the duration of the workout based on your speed and resistance.
Estimated time to complete is shown in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen.
Distance goal: A workout that allows you to select a specific distance you would like to travel during your workout.
Increasing the distance goal of the workout will affect the duration of the workout based on your speed. Estimated time to
complete is shown in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen.
The first step in knowing the right intensity for your training is to find out your maximum heart rate (max HR = 220 – your age). The age-based
method provides an average statistical prediction of your max HR and is a good method for the majority of people, especially those new to
heart rate training. The most precise and accurate way of determining your individual max HR is to have it clinically tested by a cardiologist or
exercise physiologist through the use of a maximal stress test. If you are over the age of 40, overweight, have been sedentary for several years
or have a history of heart disease in your family, clinical testing is recommended.
This chart gives examples of the heart rate range for a 30-year-old exercising at 5 different heart rate zones. For example, a 30-year-old’s max
HR is 220 – 30 = 190 BPM and 90% max HR is 190 × 0.9 = 171 BPM.

Target heart rate: Program adjusts resistance to bring you to your target heart rate.
Goal programs: A series of workouts that allow you to select a specific goal that you would like to
achieve.
Ellipticals:
5K: A workout with a fixed distance of 5 kilometers (3.1 miles). Resistance is adjusted automatically throughout the workout.
10K: A workout with a fixed distance of 10 kilometers (6.2 miles). Resistance is adjusted automatically throughout the workout.
Bikes:
20K: A workout with a fixed distance of 20 kilometers (12.4 miles). Resistance is adjusted automatically throughout the
workout.
30K: A workout with a fixed distance of 30 kilometers (18.6 miles). Resistance is adjusted automatically throughout the
workout.
Calories goal: A workout that allows you to select a specific number of calories you would like to burn during your
workout. Increasing the calorie goal of the workout will increase the duration of the workout based on your speed and
resistance. Estimated time to complete is shown in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen.
Distance goal: A workout that allows you to select a specific distance you would like to travel during your workout.
Increasing the distance goal of the workout will affect the duration of the workout based on your speed. Estimated time to
complete is shown in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen.

Max HR %: Program adjusts resistance to bring you to your desired % maximum heart rate.
The first step in knowing the right intensity for your training is to find out your maximum heart rate (max HR = 220 – your age). The age-based
method provides an average statistical prediction of your max HR and is a good method for the majority of people, especially those new to heart
rate training. The most precise and accurate way of determining your individual max HR is to have it clinically tested by a cardiologist or exercise
physiologist through the use of a maximal stress test. If you are over the age of 40, overweight, have been sedentary for several years or have a
history of heart disease in your family, clinical testing is recommended.
This chart gives examples of the heart rate range for a 30-year-old exercising at 5 different heart rate zones. For example, a 30-year-old’s max HR
is 220 – 30 = 190 BPM and 90% max HR is 190 × 0.9 = 171 BPM.
Target heart rate notes:
• Warm-up and cool-down each last 5 minutes.
• After 5 minutes, the resistance will automatically
adjust to bring you near your specified heart rate.
• The profile window shows your heart rate during
exercise. The green line represents your target
heart rate (THR) and the red line represents your
current heart rate. If you are working out beneath
your THR, the machine will adjust resistance
accordingly to bring you near your target.
