E230X / E250X / E390X EXERCISE PROGRAMS
The E230X / E250X / E390X exercise programs are designed to help you achieve your personal fitness goals and stay in shape.
They have been organized by category so you can quickly and easily find the best program(s) for your needs.
Each exercise program includes a series of preset resistance profiles that offer you a variety of training programs and intensity
levels.
®
In addition, to help you meet your muscular and cardiovascular goals and keep you motivated, some Bodyguard programs
feature target speed profiles. The console interacts with you by means of scrolling messages on target speed and an arrow
that tells you when you need to go faster or slower to reach your target speed.
Example: Target speed display
Arrow indicating
you have to
pedal faster
To take your training even further, the elliptical boasts innovative programs to help you work more efficiently and target specific
parts of your body. Once again, the interactive console indicates the various body positions for you to take throughout your
exercise session.
Example: Position display
Arrow
indicating you
have to pedal
slower
The E230X / E250X / E390X display console is there to guide you throughout your workout to help you meet your personal
goals. Some programs combine speed profiles and body positions. You can always stop the scrolling messages and return to
your regular exercise settings by pressing one of the three select keys.
Programs features between 15 and 20 levels of difficulty, depending on the type of program. By increasing or decreasing the
level difficulty, you may change the target speed and/or resistance profiles. When a program has levels of difficulty, the selected
level is displayed in the middle of the scrolling screen if the LEVEL (red LED light) is selected.
Note: Target speed profiles are suggested speeds only. They are in no way mandatory, but simply a guide to help you get the
most out of your workout. If a speed seems too high or low, we suggest that you find a rhythm that suits you.
Note: The Body Position feature is there to help you get the most out of your workout. The suggested positions are in no way
mandatory. If a position is uncomfortable, do not take it.
Note: When you change the resistance of a segment in programs with 15 levels of difficulties, the resistance value will
appear in the middle of the scrolling screen before being replaced by the selected Profile Level if the LEVEL (red LED light) is
selected.

The JustGo program allows you to start a manual exercise at the touch of one key. Since JustGo is the initial program, it will
always be displayed first for easy selection. You have total control of the pedal resistance at all times during this program. Use
the JustGo program if you like to exercise at fairly constant speeds with little or no changes during the exercise.
During the workout, the selected resistance will stay the same until you change it. A flashing dot indicates your progress. You
may adjust the resistance at any time by pressing the INCREASE/DECREASE LEVEL keys if you want to change the entire
profile or the INCREASE/DECREASE SEGMENT keys if you just want to change a segment.
The JustGo program does not allow you to predetermine your exercise time or enter your weight. As a result, the calories
burned and calories per hour values are based on a user weighing 68 kg (150 lbs.). The calories burned values in the JustGo
program should be used only as a reference. Moreover, the exercise time is automatically set its maximum of 99 minutes.
There are two ways to access the JustGo program.

controlled by the user. At a glance, the JustGo and Manual programs seem very similar since the user controls resistance
throughout the exercise. The difference is that the Manual program lets you enter your weight and the exercise duration for a
more accurate caloric display.
During the workout, the selected resistance will stay the same until you change it. A flashing dot indicates your progress. You
may change the resistance at any time by pressing the INCREASE/DECREASE LEVEL keys if you want to change the entire

Smart ReverseTM
Like any other program, the Smart ReverseTM program guides you and helps you train in both directions, forward and backward.
The interactive console indicates when you have to pedal forward and backward.
During a change of direction (ex: forward to backward), the console asks you to SLOW DOWN while the resistance on the
pedal increases to help you slow down. You will also see the downward arrow to indicate that you should reduce your speed
(see beginning of Chapter 3). Then PEDAL BACKWARD appears on the display.
If you pedal the wrong way, PEDAL FORWARD or PEDAL BACKWARD appears on the display to help you remember the
direction you were supposed to take. If you are pedaling in the right direction, “MAINTAIN THIS DIRECTION” appears and a
sound is heard.
This program features 15 levels of difficulties and up to 20 different resistance values per segment. A flashing orange dot
indicates your position throughout the exercise.
You may change the resistance of a segment or the level of difficulty at any time by pressing respectively the
INCREASE/DECREASE SEGMENT keys and/or the INCREASE/DECREASE LEVEL keys if you find the exercise too hard or
too easy.
Note: When you pedal backward, the speed value on the display is negative. Ex: -40 RPM.

Optimal Weight Loss
The Optimal Weight Loss program is perfect for optimizing your workouts to help you lose weight. It is designed to improve the
efficiency of your workout based on how much time you have to exercise.
This program combines three options: 40 minutes or less (1), 40 to 60 minutes (2), and 60 minutes or more (3). As such, the
computer selects the best option for you. These options optimize weight loss during and after your exercise.
In all three cases, the resistance automatically adjusts to keep you in the appropriate heart rate zone to lose weight and reduce
fat stored in your body.
Moreover, to make sure you don’t overlook your cardiovascular goals, a speed profile has been created for options (1) and (2) to
stimulate your base metabolism so you will continue burning fat after your workout is over. So don’t be surprised when the
interactive computer gives you target speeds to reach.
This program offers 3 levels of difficulties—Novice, Intermediate, and Expert—when options 1 or 2 are selected. You may
change the resistance at any time during the exercise if you find it too difficult or too easy. You cannot change the speed profile.
A flashing solid dot indicates your position throughout the exercise.

3.8 Fitness Test
The Fitness Test is a custom-made sub maximal test designed to help you achieve your goals by measuring your cardiorespiratory fitness. Maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max) is defined as the maximum volume of oxygen that can be taken up,
distributed and used by the body during physical activity. Testing your VO2max before starting an exercise allows you to evaluate
yourself and define the appropriate exercise intensity level.
For the sub maximal test, you are challenged to reach 80% of your maximum heart rate. This result is then used to extrapolate
your Maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max). This test features target speeds and resistances. It is very important to follow the
instructions on the console to make sure that the test is valid. The test will stop once you reach 80% of your target BPM (beat
per minutes).
The target speed is important in this program, so make sure you stick to it. If your speed is too low or too high, an arrow appears
on the display to indicate that you should reduce or increase your speed to meet the target (see beginning of Chapter 3 for
more details).
Note: For this program, you must wear the heart rate chest strap. Cardio-respiratory fitness is a combination of cardiovascular
fitness and respiratory fitness. Always keep in mind that this test is sub maximal, so the results are only approximate.

4.2 Heart Rate Chest Strap
The BODYGUARD® Fitness E230X / E250X / E390X is designed for use with the heart rate chest strap. The chest strap allows
the computer to monitor your heart rate or beats per minute. This value is displayed on the computer screen and should only be
used as a guide in helping you achieve your personal fitness goals.
If the strap is not used, no heart rate reading will be displayed onscreen. It is important to consult a physician before starting an
exercise program or using a heart rate chest strap with exercise equipment.
CAUTION – We recommend that you read this instruction manual carefully before you begin using this machine. Use of this
equipment by persons with heart or other medical problems may result in serious injury. It is recommended that you consult a
physician before using this machine. It is also recommend that you periodically consult your physician as you continue to use this
equipment. Immediately cease exercise if you feel dizzy, faint, or short of breath. Use of this equipment in a manner other than
as prescribed in this instruction manual may result in serious injury.
In order to help you choose an effective exercise program and determine your recommended Target heart rate training zone, find
your age on the heart rate chart at the beginning of the manual and check the target heart rate zone for the various intensity
levels. These levels include the Fat Burning, Healthy Heart, and Aerobic Training zones.
TIP—You should moisten the back of the heart rate chest strap from time to time to make sure it transmits a signal. Use a few
drops of water to moisten the strap and place it directly on your skin. The strap will not work properly if worn over your clothes.
