Chapter
1
Getting Started
The P10 console offers administrators the ability to set default
values that meet their specific needs. These values include
items like language, units of measure, and setting a maximum
allowed workout time for each piece of equipment.
Activating the Console for Self-Powered
Equipment
Precor equipment is either self-powered or externally
powered using an optional power adapter. Self-powered
equipment requires the user exercise to initialize the console.
This section provides more detail about powering equipment.
Activating the Console for Self-Powered Equipment
On self-powered equipment, when a user starts exercising,
the console initializes and displays the Welcome banner. A
minimum rate of motion must be maintained for the
Welcome banner to appear. The words PEDAL FASTER (or
the equivalent message depending on the equipment type)
appear in the display when the rate of motion drops below the
minimum requirements.
The equipment saves its battery charge by moving into a
shutdown mode. If the user does not maintain the minimum
rate of motion, a 30-second shutdown process begins.
In this mode, the console displays a countdown indicator and
ignores all keypresses. If no movement is detected or the rate
of motion remains below the minimum, the indicator changes
as the countdown continues.
Note: The user can resume exercising before the countdown
period elapses and the workout will continue from the point at
which it was paused.
16
Operating and Maintaining the P10 Console
Optional Use of the Power Adapter
An optional AC power adapter provides sustained power to
the equipment. This adapter allows you to change settings
without having to pedal the equipment. To purchase the
power adapter, contact your dealer.
If you purchase the optional power adapter, you must also
purchase the internal cable kit. The kit supplies the cable,
bracket, and fasteners that connect the power adapter to the
lower electronics board.
CAUTION: The internal cable kit must be installed by authorized
service personnel. Do not attempt installation on your own as you
could void the Precor Limited Warranty. For more information,
refer to Obtaining Service.
Important: If this equipment includes a P80 console, the optional
power adapter and the internal cable kit must still be installed to
provide continuous power to the base unit and support its internal
battery.
Once the internal cable kit is installed, you can plug the
optional power adapter into the equipment. Plug the opposite
end into the appropriate power source for your equipment
(120 V or 240 V). Review the safety instructions found at the
beginning of this manual before using the power adapter.
CAUTION: When the optional power adapter is in use, make sure
that the power supply cord does not create a safety hazard. Keep
it out of the way of traffic and moving parts. If the power supply
cord or power conversion module is damaged, it must be replaced.
The control console functions differently when the power
adapter is connected. Because the power adapter provides a
constant source of power, a user can pause for brief periods
without initiating shutdown procedures. When the pause time
limit expires and the user has not resumed exercising, the
console returns to the Welcome screen. The default pause
time is 30 seconds for all fitness equipment. Refer to the
manual for your control console for instructions on setting or
changing the pause time limit.

Introducing Users to the P10
Console
CAUTION: Before beginning any fitness program, see your
physician for a thorough physical examination. Seek advice from
your physician to learn the target heart rate appropriate for your
fitness level.
The P10 console offers an easy-to-follow display and multiple
workouts to help people meet their exercise needs.
Important: Please review the following sections in this guide with
your users before allowing them to use the fitness equipment:

Important Safety Instructions
Getting Started
Using the Safety Clip (for treadmill only)
Using the Touch Heart Rate Feature
Note: Touch heart rate performance may vary based on your
physiology, fitness level, age, and other factors. You may
experience an erratic readout if your hands are dry, dirty, or
oily, or if the skin on your palms is especially thick. Wearing
hand lotion can also cause an erratic readout. In addition,
make sure that the sensors are clean to ensure proper contact
can be maintained.
To use the touch heart rate feature, place the palm of your
hands directly on the metal heart rate sensors on the
equipment’s handlebars. To ensure an accurate heart rate
readout, make sure you follow these tips:


Both hands must grip the sensors for your heart rate to
register.
It takes a number of consecutive heartbeats (15-20
seconds) for your heart rate to register.
32
Operating and Maintaining the P10 Console



When gripping the sensors, do not grip tightly. Keep a
loose, cupping hold. Holding the grips tightly can affect
the reading.
As you work out, your perspiration will help transmit your
heart rate signal. If you have difficulty using the handheld
grips to determine your heart rate, try the sensors again
later in the workout to see if you can obtain a heart rate
signal.
If the touch heart rate feature does not work for you,
Precor recommends that you use a chest transmitter
strap.

Introducing Users to the P10 Console
33
Using a Chest Strap Transmitter
WARNING Signals used by the chest strap transmitter (or
heart rate strap) may interfere with
pacemakers or other implanted devices.
Consult your physician and the manufacturers
of your chest strap transmitter and implanted
device before using a chest strap transmitter.
Wearing a chest strap transmitter during your workout
provides steady heart rate information. For the equipment to
detect your heart rate, you must grip the touch heart rate
sensors or wear a chest strap transmitter while exercising. In
the presence of both touch and wireless data, the touch data
takes precedence and will display.
Note: To receive an accurate reading, the strap needs to be in
direct contact with the skin on the lower sternum (just below
the bust line for women).
To use a chest strap transmitter:
1. Carefully dampen the back of the strap with tap water.
Important: Do not use deionized water. It does not have the
proper minerals and salts to conduct electrical impulses.
2. Adjust the strap and fasten it around your chest. The
strap should feel snug, not restrictive.
3. Make sure that the chest strap is right-side-up, lies
horizontally across, and is centered in the middle of your
chest.
4. Test the chest strap placement by checking the heart rate
function on the equipment. If a heart rate is registering,
your chest strap placement is correct. If the equipment
does not register a heart rate, readjust the strap and
recheck the heart rate function.

Treadmill Auto Stop™ (Automatic Stop)
Function
Important: The default setting for this feature is ON. An
administrator can turn off this feature in the System Settings;
however, Precor recommends it remain ON.
The Auto Stop™ (Automatic Stop) feature is designed to
bring the treadmill to a gradual stop when it is not in use. This
might occur if a user steps off the treadmill before the end of
a workout and leaves the treadmill running.
60 seconds after a treadmill workout starts, or 30 seconds
after it resumes, the equipment begins Auto Stop monitoring.
If a user is detected, then no message appears, and the
selected workout continues.
If no user is detected after an additional 30 seconds, the
console displays the message NO USER DETECTED,
STOPPING IN 10 SECONDS as notification of the pending
stop. During the display of this message, a ten second
countdown begins. If a user does not override the countdown,
the belt comes to a gradual stop after the countdown is
complete.
Note: Users weighing more than 50 pounds (22.7 kg) are
detected within the speed and position limits of the feature.
Users weighing less than 50 pounds (22.7 kg) may not be
detected depending on their speed and location. Always be
aware of the console’s instructions and follow them for proper
operation.

Performance
Pausing and Resuming an Exercise Session
When you interrupt a workout, the equipment responds in
one of two ways, depending on how it is powered.
Paused (Externally Powered Equipment)
When the session is paused, the belt speed is slowly reduced
to zero, or the resistance is slowly reduced to the minimum.
The lift motor is turned off leaving the incline or crossramp at
its current position. Data entry is canceled.
When you press Pause on all non-treadmill equipment, it
displays the summary screen with your workout metrics.
After displaying the summary, it returns to the Welcome
screen.
Pending Shutdown (Self-Powered Equipment)
On self-powered machines, the paused state is equivalent to
the pending shutdown state. When you stop working out, the
equipment begins a 30 second countdown.
The accumulated metrics (e.g., time, strides, distance,
calories) hold their current values and do not change. Data
entry may not be started.
To restart the program, begin working out again. The
resistance is reset to what it was when the program was
paused.
If the equipment remains inactive for more than 30 seconds,
the power is lost and the equipment bypasses the workout
summary screen.
39
Starting a Workout
Ending a Session
Cooling down is an important aspect of your workout because
it helps reduce muscle stiffness and soreness by transporting
excess lactic acid out of the working muscles. In addition, a
three to five minute cool down allows your heart rate to
return to its normal, resting state.
At the end of your workout, a Summary screen displays your
average heart rate during your workout and your accumulated
workout metrics.
If you performed a fitness test exercise program, an initial
message presents a fitness score.
The next two messages display the user’s average and
maximum heart rate during the session. These messages are
only displayed if heart rate data was acquired during the
session, i.e., a valid heart rate number was displayed at least
once during the session.
The summary state times out in two minutes, causing a return
to the Welcome banner. If the machine is in a CSAFE Finished
state then the summary state must last for at least the CSAFE
timeout value, typically 10 seconds or less. If it has not lasted
that long, then before returning to the Welcome banner, the
word RESETTING appears until the CSAFE finished state
ends.

Workouts
Your fitness equipment includes a wide selection of workouts
that are carefully designed to make sure you get the best
results out of every workout.
The human body is extremely efficient. If it makes the same
motion regularly over many days or weeks, it learns to make
that motion with less and less effort. This process, called
muscle adaptation, has one drawback—the longer you stick to
the same workout, the less good that workout does you.
To prevent muscle adaptation from setting in as you work out,
try different kinds of workouts on different days. By keeping
your muscles guessing, you’ll keep your energy use up,
promoting faster weight loss and better conditioning.
The workouts in the following table are available on units
equipped with the P10 console.

Weight Loss Key
Pressing the Weight Loss key scrolls through the workouts
that are designed to encourage weight loss and aerobic
conditioning.
The American College of Sports Medicine® recommends that
adults get at least 30–60 minutes of moderately intense
exercise five days a week. The Weight Loss workout provides
a structured and time-based aerobic challenge designed to
help you reverse or prevent weight gain.
The total time for this workout is fixed at 28 minutes. It
consists of alternating four-minute work and rest intervals.
During the work intervals, you can change the resistance at
any time.
Training tip: For best results, wear a heart rate monitor and
maintain a target heart rate that is between 50% and 70% of
your maximum heart rate.
Heart Rate Key
Pressing the Heart Rate key selects the Basic Heart Rate
Controlled (HRC) workout, which monitors your heart rate to
guide you through a moderate intensity program that is
optimal for aerobic conditioning. To use this workout, you
must either wear a chest strap sensor (recommended) or
maintain continuous contact with the handheld sensor grips.
Note: You cannot switch to this workout during an exercise
session.
During the workout, your target heart rate is based on the
following calculation:
Target heart rate = 70% × (207 – (0.67 × your age))
The equipment adjusts intensity settings to maintain your
target heart rate while you work out.
When a heart rate signal is not received, the metrics displays
remain blank. If this happens, recheck your hand grip on the
handheld sensors or the placement of your chest strap.
Training tip: This program offers a coaching benefit for new
and returning users who are learning how to maintain a
moderate, steady exertion level throughout their workouts.
43
Starting a Workout
Performance Key
Press the Performance key repeatedly to select a workout
that conditions and tests the body’s muscular and aerobic
performance.
Note: On treadmills, a fitness test option is also available. A
technician at the fitness facility must activate the fitness test
before you can use it. After the test has been activated, you
can scroll between the Track and Fitness Test workouts by
pressing the Performance key repeatedly.
Track
This workout is largely identical to the Manual workout; there
are no preset intensity levels, so you can adjust the levels as
you work out. However, in place of the normal intensity graph,
a diagram depicting an oval running track appears on the
lower display. A blinking LED shows where you are in your
current lap, and each lap is equal to 440 yards (400 meters).
Training tip: Challenge yourself by adjusting your training
parameters regularly for the best results.
Hill Climb
This workout simulates a walk, run, or ride up a long grade
and down a shorter one. It engages a wide range of muscle
groups by adjusting the resistance, CrossRamp, or both to
deliver a hill climbing experience. You can change these
settings at any time, and your changes will affect the intensity
of the rest of your workout.
Note: On the EFX, the console prompts you to pedal
backward during part of the workout.
Training tip: Incorporating hill climb workouts into your
regular cardio schedule will keep your workouts varied and
help build lower body muscle strength.
44
Operating and Maintaining the P10 Console
Cross Training Workouts
This workout delivers true training variety and muscular
engagement by adjusting the resistance and incline
continuously to simulate the dynamic terrain of an outdoor
run.
The CrossRamp setting is preprogrammed in each of these
workouts, but you can change it or the resistance setting at
any time. Your changes are applied to the levels for the
remainder of your workout, and the columns in the workout
profile show the changed CrossRamp levels.
Training tip: Advanced users can engage their core stabilizer
muscles more thoroughly by taking their hands off the
handlebars throughout the workout.
Fitness Test
Fitness tests evaluate your body’s overall fitness in terms of
its aerobic capacity. During the warmup stage of the test, you
can adjust your starting resistance settings. After that, you
complete a series of stages of increasing intensity. Based on
your progress through these stages and the changes in your
heart rate as you complete them, the equipment calculates
your fitness score at the end of the test.
On treadmills, the Gerkin Fitness Test compares your fitness
level with the official fitness standards of the International
Association of Firefighters (IAFF). This test is written using
the Gerkin Protocol, which is the basis for the official IAFF
fitness test and part of their Wellness and Fitness Initiative.
45
Starting a Workout
The treadmill ends the test prematurely if any of the following
things happen:


The equipment cannot detect your heartbeat.
Your heart rate exceeds 85% of your maximum safe rate
for 15 seconds or more.
 Your heart rate changes too quickly.
 You press the STOP switch or pull on the safety clip
lanyard.
Important: For best results, sit and rest for at least five minutes
before you take the test.
Training tip: To see how your performance level increases
with exercise over time, try taking the fitness test as soon as
possible after you begin your exercise program. Then, as you
keep working out, take the fitness test from time to time and
watch your results improve.
The following tables show how to interpret your test score.

Operating and Maintaining the P10 Console
Variety Key
Pressing the Variety key selects a random or specialized
workout designed for the fitness equipment you are using.
Random
Variety (for both the muscles and the mind) is the key to
continued success for every exercise goal. The Random
workout delivers a different training profile every time you
select it. The one-minute segments that appear in the
workout profile maintain a set incline that you can override.
Training tip: Your body will respond differently to each
workout. The best way to evaluate and quantify the
effectiveness of each exercise session is to wear a chest strap
or use the touch-sensitive grips during your training sessions.
Gluteal Workouts
Strong glutes contribute to better posture, improved spine
and hip stabilization, and reduction in lower body injuries at
the hips, knees and ankles. These workouts target your thighs
and glutes as they gradually increase in intensity, but you can
modify the intensity levels at any time.
On EFX models, the workout prompts you to reverse direction
after 25%, 50%, and 75% of the total time. At these points,
you will see text messages on the console that remind you to
change direction.
Training tip: To increase your core activation (the effort
expended by your torso and gluteal muscles) during your
workout, take your hands off the machine handles or
handrails while maintaining an upright posture.
47
Starting a Workout
Interval Key
Interval workouts help exercisers improve strength,
endurance, aerobic and anaerobic fitness. They alternate
short bursts of high intensity activity with recovery periods.
Pressing the Interval key selects the available interval
workout.
Note: On the AMT, two different interval workouts are
available. Press the Interval key repeatedly to scroll between
the available workouts.
1-1 and 1-2 Interval
The 1-1 Interval workout is designed to raise and lower your
heart rate in a repeating fashion for a user-defined period of
time by alternating rest and work intervals of two minutes
each. Likewise, the 1-2 Interval workout alternates two
minutes of rest with four minutes of work.
Training tip: You can tailor your rest and work period
intensity further by adjusting either of the intensity settings at
any time. The equipment remembers these preferences for
each upcoming interval.
Custom Interval
The Custom Interval workout is similar to the Interval
workout. However, before you begin, you must specify the
length of the rest and work intervals. Use either the arrow
keys or the keypad to select a duration between 1 and 30
minutes, then press OK to enter your selection. After you
have entered both durations, your workout begins.
Training tip: Depending on your fitness level and workout
goals, you can set your recovery period as low as one minute
between work intervals. For the work intervals themselves,
you can set any duration between 1 and 30 minutes.
Customizing the proportions of your work and rest intervals
based on your unique training objectives will speed your
progress toward your performance goals.

Breaking In the Equipment
Precor equipment does not require an actual break-in period.
However, moving components such as belts, gears, and
bearings can settle while the equipment is being stored or
shipped. This can cause the equipment to operate with a
small amount of roughness or noise when it starts up for the
first time.
The equipment usually returns to smooth operation after a
day or two of normal use. If it does not, contact your dealer
for assistance. For more information, refer to Obtaining
Service.

Storing the Chest Strap
If you purchased the optional heart rate chest strap, store it in
a place where it remains free of dust and dirt (for example, in
a closet or drawer). Be sure to protect the chest strap from
extremes in temperature. Do not store it in a place that may
be exposed to temperatures below 32° F (0° C).
To clean the chest strap, use a sponge or soft cloth dampened
in mild soap and water. Dry the surface thoroughly with a
clean towel.

Moving the Equipment
The equipment is very heavy. If you plan to move it to a new
location, obtain the help of an adult assistant and use proper
lifting techniques. If the equipment includes roller wheels on
one end, use the wheels to reduce the load on yourself and
your assistant.
To move the AMT:
1. Disconnect, unplug, and remove all external connections
(television, Ethernet, and power).
2. Lift the rear platform molding to remove it.
3. Lift the rear foot supports to tip the AMT forward onto its
roller wheels.
4. Push the AMT into its new location.
5. Lower the rear foot supports to the floor, then reattach
the rear platform molding.
Long-Term Storage
If you do not expect anyone to use the equipment for a long
time, perform the following tasks to prepare it for storage:



If it has a power cord, disconnect the cord.
If it has an optional power adapter, connect the adapter to
prevent damage to the internal battery.
Position it so that it will not become damaged and will not
interfere with people or other equipment.

Self-Powered Features
Important: This chapter of the manual describes Precor fitness
equipment that can operate without being connected to AC
power. This includes units equipped with P30 or P10 consoles.
However, P80 consoles must be connected to AC power through
their power supplies to operate. For this reason, this chapter does
not apply to units equipped with P80 consoles.
On self-powered equipment, the system initializes and
displays the Welcome screen when a user starts exercising. A
minimum rate of motion must be maintained for the banner to
appear, as shown in the following table. When a person meets
the requirements, the power that is generated allows the
equipment to function properly.
Table 4. Minimum requirements for operation
Equipment Rate of Motion
AMT
40 strides per minute (SPM)
EFX
40 strides per minute (SPM)
Climber
30 steps per minute
Bike
20 revolutions per minute (RPM)
Informational displays appear when the battery is low or
when the rate of motion drops below the minimum
requirements. The display explains what to do to retain
power. If the messages are ignored, the equipment begins
shutdown procedures to maintain the charge of the battery.
Refer to Informational Displays Prior to Shutdown.
An optional power adapter can be purchased and provides
sustained power to the equipment. If you plan to change the
club settings on a unit equipped with a P30 or P10 console,
the power adapter is highly recommended. To purchase the
optional power adapter, check with your dealer. Refer to
Obtaining Service.

Informational Displays Prior to Shutdown
The equipment saves its battery charge by moving into a
shutdown mode. If the user does not maintain the minimum
rate of motion, a 30-second shutdown process begins.
In this mode, the console displays a countdown indicator and
ignores all keypresses. If no movement is detected or the rate
of motion remains below the minimum, the indicator changes
as the countdown continues.
Note: The user can resume exercising before the countdown
period elapses and the workout will continue from the point at
which it was paused.
Important: If the equipment is connected to a CSAFE master
device, it follows a slightly different shutdown process. Ten
seconds before the equipment shuts down, it ends the exercise
session and displays a reset message while it disconnects from the
CSAFE master device. It ignores all keypresses during these last
ten seconds.

Symptoms of a Low Battery
If no one has used the equipment for an extended period of
time, the battery may need recharging.
Symptoms of a low battery include the following:


A flickering or erratic display
Loss of user and program information after the user stops
exercising, without any display of a workout summary or a
notification of pending shutdown
 Inability to decrease the incline setting (if any)
Important: To maintain a constant power source, use the optional
power adapter.

Using the Optional Power Adapter
After connecting the power adapter to the equipment, plug
the opposite end into the appropriate power source (120 V or
240 V).
CAUTION: When the optional power adapter is in use, make sure
that the power supply cord does not create a safety hazard. Keep
it out of the way of traffic and moving parts. If the power supply
cord or power conversion module is damaged, it must be replaced.
The control console functions differently when the power
adapter is connected. Because the power adapter provides a
constant source of power, a user can pause for brief periods
without initiating shutdown procedures. When the pause time
limit expires and the user has not resumed exercising, the
console returns to the Welcome screen. The default pause
time is 30 seconds for all fitness equipment. Refer to the
manual for your control console for instructions on setting or
changing the pause time limit. To learn how to install the
power adapter, refer to The Optional Power Adapter Kit.

The Optional Power Adapter Kit
If you purchase the optional power adapter, you must also
purchase the internal cable kit. The kit supplies the cable,
bracket, and fasteners that connect the power adapter to the
lower electronics board.
CAUTION: The internal cable kit must be installed by authorized
service personnel. Do not attempt installation on your own as you
could void the Precor Limited Warranty. For more information,
refer to Obtaining Service.
Important: If this equipment includes a P80 console, the optional
power adapter and the internal cable kit must still be installed to
provide continuous power to the base unit and support its internal
battery.
Once the internal cable kit is installed, you can plug the
optional power adapter into the equipment. Plug the opposite
end into the appropriate power source for your equipment
(120 V or 240 V). Review the safety instructions found at the
beginning of this manual before using the power adapter.
