Note that JustGo™, MANUAL, HEART RATE, TARGET WATTS, TRACK and RACE programs do not
have a predetermined Hill profile. If you chose time in your settings, then each segment time
would be equal to the selected exercise time divided by 15 segments.
Program Levels
Each of the programs, except the RACE and the TRACK programs, have 15 individual exercise levels. LEVEL 1 is the easiest (less resistance) and LEVEL 15 is the most difficult (highest resistance).
This feature allows you to alter the intensity of your workout without changing your program
profile. Levels can be changed at anytime during your workout by pressing the Level INCREASE
and DECREASE keys.
The following table shows the level of effort (watts) at a rotational pedal axle speed of 60 RPM

Walking Speed
In walking, “slower” means spending less watts and “faster” means spending more watts for a
constant resistance level. Therefore when you increase your level of difficulty and you maintain
the same rotational speed, you increase your watts expenditure.
The versatility of levels within programs makes it easy for you to target your perfect workout
intensity. It is also simple for you to advance to new levels of difficulty without taking giant leaps
into new programs.
Changing the segment resistance manually will cause only the active segment resistance to
change. Changing the level manually will cause the entire resistance profile to change.
JustGo™ Program
The JustGo™ program allows you to start a manual exercise with the push of one key. Since the
JustGo™ program 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.
Manual Program
The Manual program allows you to create your own exercise as you progress in the program. The
resistance is completely controlled by the user at all times. At a glance, the JustGo™ and Manual
programs seem very similar due to the fact that the user controls the resistance at all times. The
difference is that in the Manual program, you select your exercise duration for a more appropriate exercise.
Track Program
The Track program is one that enables you to choose from 1-350 laps of a 250 meters (or about
273 yards) Olympic track. Each Track program allows the user to completely control their speed
from the start of the exercise until the end since there is no automatic speed control during the
Track program.
The Track program will display a flashing dot on an oval track screen that will display your
progression. The informational window will show you how many laps have been done in your
workout.
To select the Track Program:
1. Press the DECREASE key to select TRACK. Press the JustGo™/ ENTER key to accept the Track program.
2. Select the number of laps. Press the speed INCREASE or DECREASE keys to select the appropriate number of laps from 1 to 350. Press the JustGo™/ ENTER key to accept.
21
Memory Programs
The Memory programs allow you to recall previously completed exercises. After each exercise has
finished, you are prompted if you wish to save the current exercise or not. All programs, except
the TRACK and RACE programs can be saved as Memory programs.
To select the Memory programs:
1. Press the DECREASE key to select MEMORY. Press the JustGo™/ENTER key to accept the
Memory program.
2. Use the INCREASE or DECREASE keys to select one of the custom program. When you have
selected the custom program you want, press the JustGo™/ENTER key to accept.
3. Select your weight. Press the INCREASE or DECREASE keys to select the appropriate weight.
The weight will vary from 50 to 300 pounds (23 to 136 kg). Press the JustGo™/ENTER key to
accept.
4. Select the exercise duration. Press the INCREASE or DECREASE keys to select the appropriate
exercise duration. Press the JustGo™/ENTER key to accept.
5. Select your intensity mode. Press the INCREASE or DECREASE keys to select NOVICE, INTERMEDIATE or EXPERT modes. Press the JustGo™/ENTER key to accept.
Heart Rate Control Program (HRC)
The Heart Rate Control program allows you to exercise at a predetermined target heart rate level.
By selecting the desired target heart rate level, the watt value will automatically adjust to
decrease or increase the exercise intensity.
NOTE – This program can only be used with the optional heart rate chest strap available from your
Authorized Bodyguard® Dealer. Use of the heart rate chest strap will allow the elliptical to change
the level of effort in relation to the RPM (watts). To achieve optimal results, it is recommended to
place the chest strap directly over the skin. The strap should be very snug since any significant
amount of shock or impact may temporarily produce wrong heart rate signals. You should not be
more than arm’s length from the computer display to achieve the best signal. If at anytime the
heart rate receiver does not detect a signal from the chest strap for more then a few seconds, a
message will appear asking to “NO HR SIGNAL PLEASE CHECK BELT”.
WARNING – Before attempting to use any of this equipment, you should read the instruction
manual carefully. Use of this equipment by persons with heart or other medical problems may
result in serious injury. You should consult with a physician prior to using this equipment. It is
recommended to 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 by these instructions herewith may result in serious injury.
To select the Heart Rate Control program:
1. Press the DECREASE key to select HEART RATE. Press the JustGo™/ ENTER key to accept the
Heart Rate Control program.
2. Select your weight. Press the INCREASE or DECREASE keys to select the appropriate weight.
The weight will vary from 50 to 300 pounds (23 to 136 kg). Press the JustGo™/ENTER key to
accept.
22
3. Select the exercise duration. Press the INCREASE or DECREASE keys to select the appropriate
exercise duration. Press the JustGo™/ENTER key to accept.
4. Select your age to allow the computer to calculate your maximum allowable heart rate level.
Press the INCREASE or DECREASE keys to select your age. The age will vary from 10 to 100 years.
Press the JustGo™/ENTER key to accept.
5. Select an exercise intensity based on your preferred level of exercise. Press the INCREASE or
DECREASE keys to select the exercise intensity.
• The 60% level is a good guide for persons interested in training in the fat loss range.
• The 70% level is suitable for persons interested in training in the cardiovascular range.
• The 80% level requires the most effort and is suitable for persons with a higher level of fitness.
6. Based on the previous selection, the computer suggests a target heart rate that you are
allowed to modify. Press the INCREASE or DECREASE keys to select the desired target heart
rate. Press the JustGo™/ENTER key to accept and start the exercise.
Once the exercise has started, your ACTUAL heart rate should be lower than the TARGET heart
rate. The computer then will gradually regulate the resistance based on your RPM (watt value) to
increase your exercise intensity level, resulting in a higher ACTUAL heart rate. If the ACTUAL heart
rate is within +/-5 beats from your TARGET heart rate, the resistance level will no longer change.
On your E350 Elliptical, the Heart Rate Control program is driven by the level of effort for a certain rotational speed of the pedal axle (watts). If you slow down your rotational speed (RPM), the
computer will increase the resistance to maintain the watt value.
WARNING – If you feel that the speed is too fast for your fitness level and you cannot keep up,
press the PAUSE/STOP key and terminate the exercise program. You can try the program again,
but at a lower INTENSITY level (60%). If this is still too fast for you, do not use the Heart Rate
Control program until your fitness level allows you to safely exercise at your TARGET heart rate
level.
If you have set a maximum watt value for the Heart Rate Control program in the settings (see
Section 2.10), the maximum watt value during the exercise will not exceed your selection.
Target Watts Program
The Target Watts program allows you to exercise at a predetermined target watts level. By selecting the desired target watt level, the watts value will automatically adjust to decrease or increase
the exercise intensity.
During the exercise, the main computer screen will not show a resistance profile like the other
programs, but will display a watt graph. A straight line indicates your TARGET watts and a flashing dot represents your ACTUAL watt level drawing as you progress in the exercise.
On your E350 Elliptical, the Target Watts program is driven by the level of effort for a certain
rotational speed of the pedal axle (watts). If you slow down your rotational speed (RPM), the computer will increase the resistance to maintain the watt value.
During the Target Watts program, you can change the watts by pressing the INCREASE or
DECREASE keys.
23
Race Program
The Race program offers the possibility to compete against a number of challengers from 1 to 3.
You cannot save the Race program in Memory.
The Race program will display a number of challengers. The top challenger is you and the others
are your opponents.
Programs P1 to P9 (E350)
Programs P1 to P9 are predetermined hill profiles that have varying resistance levels. The higher
the segment profile line is, the harder it will be.
24
Heart Rate Access Feature (HRA)
The Heart Rate Access feature allows you to selectively enter into a Heart Rate Control program
without quitting your exercise. It will allow you to choose, when you are ready, to change your
current workout to a Heart Rate Control. You will need to be wearing the optional wireless chest
strap when choosing to use this feature.
The Heart Rate Access feature allows the user to change any program at any time during the
selected workout to Heart Rate Control. On screen, you will see the program remaining change
to a flat-line as it would look like in a normal Heart Rate Control program. The part of the program that you just did though would remain unchanged.
How to Use Heart Rate Access
While in a program you would press the JustGo™/ENTER key. On screen you would see the message “HEART RATE CONTROL ACTIVATED... TARGET IS XXX BEATS PER MINUTE”. Once your Heart
Rate has been confirmed, the remainder of the selected workout time would be in the form of a
normal Heart Rate Control. If you pressed the button and were not wearing a chest strap, the unit
will disregard the button push and continue in the normal selected program. This feature is not
available in the RACE and TARGET WATTS programs.
1. Override
• In all programs you can make LEVEL changes manually.
2. Saving
• You will also be able to save any program at the end (except the ones mentioned above and
the TRACK program).
Heart Rate Recovery
Your E350 is pre programmed with a unique and useful program that is used to help determine
your fitness level. After a program (workout) the E350 can be used to countdown towards your
predetermined resting heart rate.
In order to use this program you will need to turn ON Heart Rate Recovery in the set/up mode.
Default this option is turned off.
25
Fit Levels
Although it is difficult to assess each individual based on a generic chart. It is agreed that a quicker time from an exercise level heart rate to a resting (predetermined) heart rate is beneficial to
cardio fitness. The best way to use this program is to use it today.
Using Recovery
It will only work while using the optional chest strap. After your exercise is complete the computer
will ask you to stop. Stay on the machine with your chest strap facing the console. Try not to move.
It is best to keep your arms to your side as to not interfere with the signal. Stay in this position
until the computer has finished reading the heart rate signal. Depending on your fitness level this
could be a few minutes or longer. Your personal goal would be to bring that number (time) to
alower and managed level.
Changing Your Target Heart Rate in a Program
The normal Heart Rate Control program allows you to make Target Heart Rate changes at anytime while in a program by pressing the JustGo™/ENTER key. The difference is now that by pressing the JustGo™/ENTER key, it will bring you into Heart Rate Access; by pressing the
JustGo™/ENTER key again, you will be asked to make a new Target Heart Rate change.
