USING YOUR RACE PROGRAM (3.1R only)
Your Race Program is designed to add motivation to a workout by allowing you to compete against a
selected pacer. To use your Race Program, follow these instructions:
1. Choose the Race program by pressing the quick program buttons. Press “Select”.
2. Choose the desired Pace (average speed) using the up or down buttons. The pace range is 10 to
28mph in increments of 0.5mph, with 10mph being the lowest and 28mph being the highest. Once
the desired Pace is selected, press “Select”.
3. Choose the desired Distance by pressing the ‘Up’ or ‘Down’ buttons. Press “Select”.
4. Press ‘Start’ and begin your Race Program.
This is a distance-based program, the time it will take you to complete the race is determined by the
speed and distance selected. Upon pressing START, the program will be broken up into 16 segments.
The first segment will be dedicated to a WARM-UP, which will be half of the selected pace (Speed).
The middle segments will consist of the Race, with the last segment dedicated to a COOL-DOWN,
which will be half of the selected Pace (Speed). Note: The race distance does not include the time
for WARM-UP and COOL-DOWN (as they are a set time of 2.5 minutes each).
The top speed represents the Pacers speed and the bottom speed represents your speed. The top row
of bars shows the components Pacer position. The bottom row bars indicates your position. If you
trail the Pacer, you should pedal at a faster speed to catch and pass the Pacer.
You can adjust your resistance at any time during the program by pressing the quick resistance or
up/down buttons.
If you beat the pacer to the finish line, the console will flash and scroll YOU WIN and begin your
cool-down. If the pacer wins, the console will flash and scroll PACER WINS, you will finish your race
and begin your cool-down.
23
USING YOUR THR ZONE PROGRAMS 1 & 2 (3.1R only)
The THR zone program is designed to keep the user at an optimum exercise level, while adjusting the
resistance levels to keep the user at a target heart rate. To choose the THR zone program, follow these
instructions.
1. Choose the THR zone program by pressing the ‘Up’ or ‘Down’ buttons. Press ‘Enter’.
2. Determine your target THR zone by using the heart rate chart (reference target heart rate THR zone
chart in table of contents). Choose your target pulse zone by pressing the ‘Up’ or ‘Down’ buttons. Your
target THR zone should be set at a number that you will be able to exercise throughout the majority of
your workout.
3. The THR zone program will have a 5 minute warm-up period before it will start adjusting the resistance levels to get you to your target pulse zone.
4. After the 5 minute warm-up period, the resistance levels will increase gradually to get the user to
the selected target THR zone. Once the user is at the target pulse zone; plus or minus 5 beats, the
resistance level will remain at the current resistance level.
5. If the actual heart rate of the user is above the target THR zone, the resistance levels will gradually
begin decreasing to keep the user in the target pulse zone. If the user is more than 25 beats above the
target THR zone, the console will shut down for safety purposes.
6. The last 5 minutes of the program will be dedicated to a cool-down period. At this time, the program
will gradually decrease the resistance level to give the user a smooth and easy cool down.
Note: The chest strap is required to use the Target THR zone Program.

Troubleshooting & Maintenance Procedures
WHAT KIND OF ROUTINE MAINTENANCE IS REQUIRED?
We use sealed bearings throughout our bikes so lubrication is not needed. The most important maintenance step is to simply wipe your perspiration off the bike after each use.
HOW DO I CLEAN MY HORIZON FITNESS RECUMBENT BIKE?
Clean with soap and water cleaners only. Never use solvents on plastic parts.
Cleanliness of your Horizon Fitness recumbent bike and its operating environment will keep maintenance problems and service calls to a minimum. For this reason, Horizon Fitness recommends that
the following preventive maintenance schedule be followed.
AFTER EACH USE (DAILY)
• Unplug the power cord from the wall outlet. (3.1R only)
WARNING
WARNING!
To remove power from the semi-recumbent bike, the power cord must be disconnected from the wall
outlet. (3.1R only)
• Never use solvents, as they can cause damage to the semi-recumbent bike.
• Inspect the power cord. If the power cord is damaged, contact Horizon Fitness.
• Make sure the power cord is not underneath the recumbent bike or in any other area where it can
become pinched or cut.
EVERY WEEK
Clean underneath the semi-recumbent bike, following these steps:
• Unplug the power cord at the wall outlet. (3.1R only)
• Move the recumbent bike to a remote location.
• Wipe or vacuum any dust particles or other objects that may have accumulated underneath the
recumbent bike.
• Return the recumbent bike to its previous position.
EVERY MONTH
• Inspect all assembly bolts and pedals on the machine for proper tightness.
26
Your Horizon Fitness recumbent bike is designed to be reliable and maintenance free. However, if you
do experience problems with your recumbent bike, please reference the troubleshooting guide listed
below.
PROBLEM: There is no display on the console.
SOLUTION: Remove the console and verify that the console cable is attached properly, making sure
that the cable is securely inserted into the console.
PROBLEM: The recumbent bike makes a squeaking or chirping noise.
SOLUTION: Loosen all bolts attached during the assembly process, grease the threads and tighten
again.
PROBLEM: The resistance levels seem to be incorrect, seeming too hard or too easy.
SOLUTION: Reset the console and allow the resistance to reset to the default position. Restart the
console and retry the resistance levels. (3.1R only)
HEART RATE TROUBLESHOOTING
PROBLEM: There is no heart rate reading
SOLUTION: If you are using the chest strap, there may be a poor connection between the electrodes
and the skin. Remoisten the electrodes with water. (3.1R only)
SOLUTION: The chest strap may not be positioned properly. Reposition the chest strap. It may be
necessary to experiment with the fit and position of the chest strap. (3.1R only)
SOLUTION: Verify that the distance between the chest strap and the console is not beyond the recommended range of 36 inches. (3.1R only)
SOLUTION: The battery in the chest strap may be dead. Take the chest strap to a jewelry store or
return to Horizon Fitness for a battery replacement. (3.1R only)
27
PROBLEM: Erratic or Inconsistent Readout.
SOLUTION: This is often caused by dry electrodes or a loose chest strap. Moisture on the rubber
electrodes is required for proper operation. Try a more generous coating of water on the electrodes
and tightening the chest strap. (3.1R only)
Chest your exercise environment for sources of interference such as high power lines, large motors,
etc.
You may experience an erratic readout under the following conditions:
• Gripping the heart rate handlebars too tight. Try to maintain moderate pressure while holding onto
the heart rate handlebars.
• Constant movement and vibration due to constantly holding the heart rate grips while exercising.
• When you are breathing heavily during a workout.
• When your hands are constricted by wearing a ring.
• When your hands are dry or cold. Try moistening your palms or rubbing them together to warm.
• Anyone with heavy arrhythmia.
• Anyone with arteriosclerosis or peripheral circulation disorder.
• Anyone whose skin on the measuring palms is especially thick.
Note: Outside interference sources such as computers, motors and fluorescent lights may cause the
heart rate reading to be erratic.
If the above troubleshooting section does not remedy
the problem, discontinue use and turn the power off.

Common Product Questions
ARE THE SOUNDS MY RECUMBENT BIKE MAKES NORMAL?
Our recumbent bikes are some of the quietest available because they use belt drives and friction free
magnetic resistance. We use the highest grade bearings and belts to minimize noise. However,
because the resistance system itself is so quiet, you will occasionally hear other slight mechanical
noises. Unlike older, louder technologies, there are no fans, friction belts, or alternator noises to
mask these sounds on our recumbent bikes. These mechanical noises, which may or may not be
intermittent, are normal and are caused by the transfer of significant amounts of energy to a rapidly
spinning flywheel. All bearings, belts and other rotating parts will generate some noise which will
transmit through the casing and frame. It is also normal for these sounds to change slightly during a
workout and over time because of thermal expansion of the parts.
WHY IS THE RECUMBENT BIKE I HAD DELIVERED LOUDER THAN THE ONE AT THE STORE?
All fitness products seem quieter in a large store showroom because there is generally more background noise than in your home. Also, there will be less reverberation on a carpeted concrete floor
than on a wood overlay floor. Sometimes a heavy rubber mat will help reduce reverberation through
the floor. If a fitness product is placed close to a wall, there will be more reflected noise.
HOW LONG WILL THE DRIVE BELT LAST?
The computer modeling we have done indicated virtually thousands of maintenance free hours. Belts
are now commonly used in far more demanding applications such as motorcycle drives.
CAN I MOVE THE RECUMBENT BIKE EASILY ONCE IT IS ASSEMBLED?
Your Horizon Fitness recumbent bike has a pair of transport wheels built into the front foot. It is easy
to move your recumbent bike by rolling it on the front transport wheels. It is important that you place
your Horizon Fitness recumbent bike in a comfortable and inviting room. Your recumbent bike is
designed to use minimal floor space. Many people will place their recumbent bikes facing the TV or a
picture window. If at all possible, avoid putting your recumbent bike in a unfinished basement. To
make exercise a desirable daily activity for you, the recumbent bike should be in a attractive setting.
29
Conditioning Guidelines
Always consult your physician before beginning an exercise program.
HOW OFTEN?
The American Heart Association recommends that you exercise at least 3 to 4 days per week to maintain cardiovascular fitness. If you have other goals such as weight or fat loss, you will achieve your
goal faster with more frequent exercise. Whether it’s 3 days or 6 days, remember that your ultimate
goal should be to make exercise a lifetime habit. Many people are successful staying with a fitness
program if they set aside a specific time of day to exercise. It doesn’t matter whether it’s in the
morning before your shower, during lunch hour or while watching the evening news. What’s more
important is that it’s a time that allows you to keep a schedule, and a time when you won’t be interrupted. If you are to be successful with your fitness program, you have to make it a priority in your
life. So decide on a time, pull out your day planner and pencil in your exercise times for the next
month!
HOW LONG?
For aerobic exercise benefits, it’s recommended that you exercise from between 24 and 32 minutes
per session. But start slowly and gradually increase your exercise times. If you’ve been sedentary during the past year, it may be a good idea to keep your exercise times to as little as five minutes initially. Your body will need time to adjust to the new activity. If your goal is weight loss, a longer exercise
session at lower intensities has been found to be most effective. A workout time of 48 minutes or
more is recommended for best weight loss results.
30
HOW HARD?
How hard you workout is also determined by your goals. If you use your Horizon Fitness recumbent
bike to prepare for a 5K race, you will probably work out at a higher intensity than if your goal is general fitness. Regardless of your long term goals, always begin an exercise program at low intensity.
Aerobic exercise does not have to be painful to be beneficial! There are two ways to measure your
exercise intensity. The first is by monitoring your heart rate (see page 17), and the second is by evaluating your perceived exertion level (this is simpler than it sounds!). Note: Always consult your physician before beginning an exercise program.
PERCEIVED EXERTION LEVEL
The second and simpler way to gauge your exercise intensity is to evaluate your perceived exertion
level. While exercising if you are too winded to maintain a conversation without gasping, you are
working out too hard. A good rule of thumb is to work to the point of exhilaration, not exhaustion. If
you cannot catch your breath, it’s time to slow down. Always be aware of other warning signs of
overexertion.
31
Monitoring Your Heart Rate
FEEDBACK
Your Horizon Fitness recumbent bike offers two heart rate feedback options. You may choose to use
the heart rate handlebars, or the chest transmitter for a hands free workout. (3.1R only)
HEART RATE HANDLEBAR
Place the palm of your hands directly on the heart rate handlebars. Both hands must grip the bars for
your heart rate to register. When griping the handlebars, do not grip tightly. Holding the grips tightly
may elevate your blood pressure. Try to maintain moderate pressure while holding onto the heart rate
handlebars. It is recommended that you hold the handlebars only long enough to see your heart rate
readout on the console. You may experience an erratic readout if consistently holding the handlebars.
TELEMETRIC CHEST TRANSMITTER
Prior to wearing the chest transmitter on your chest, moisten the two rubber electrodes with water.
Center the chest strap just below the breast or pectoral muscles, directly over your sternum, with the
Horizon Fitness logo facing out. Note: The chest strap must be tight and properly placed to receive
an accurate and consistent readout. If the chest strap is too loose, or positioned improperly, you may
receive an erratic or inconsistent heart rate readout. (3.1R only)
If you have any problems with the heart rate function please refer to the troubleshooting section.
WARNING
WARNING!
The heart rate function is not a medical device. Various factors may affect the accuracy of your heart
rate reading. The heart rate reading is intended only as an exercise aid.
32
Heart Rate Chart
THR ZONE
Your ‘Target Heart Rate Zone’ is a percentage of your maximum heart rate. Target Zones will vary for
each individual, depending on age, current level of conditioning, and personal fitness goals. The
American Heart Association recommends working-out at a ‘Target Heart Rate Zone’ of between 60%
and 75% of your maximum heart rate. See the chart below for convenient reference. EXAMPLE for a
42-year old user: find AGE along the bottom of the chart (round to 40), follow AGE column up to the
TARGET ZONE BAR. RESULTS: 60% of maximum Hear Rate = 108 Beats Per Minute, 75% of maximum Heart Rate = 135 Beat Per Minute.
33
Developing A Fitness Program
TIPS
STRETCH FIRST
Before using your Horizon Fitness product, it is best to take a few minutes doing a few gentle stretching exercises. Stretching prior to exercise will improve flexibility and reduce chances of exercise related injury. Ease into each of these stretches with a slow gentle motion. Do not stretch to the point of
pain. Make sure not to bounce while doing these stretches.
WALL PUSH
Stand near a wall with the toes of one foot about 18" from the wall, and the other foot about 12"
behind the other foot. Lean forward, pushing against the wall with your palms. Keep your heels flat
and hold this position for a count of 15 seconds. Make sure that you do not bounce while stretching.
Alternate positions of your feet and repeat for a total of 8 repetitions.
STANDING QUADRICEPS STRETCH
Using a wall to provide balance, grasp your left ankle with your left hand and hold your foot against
the back of your thigh for a count of 15 seconds. Repeat with your right ankle and hand, and continue
alternating for a total of 8 repetitions.
SEATED TOE TOUCH
Sit on the floor with your legs together and straight out in front of you. Do not lock your knees.
Extend your fingers towards your toes and hold for a count of 15 seconds. Make sure that you do not
bounce while stretching. Sit upright again. Repeat for a total of 8 repetitions.
34
Warm Up & Cool Down
THE IMPORTANCE OF WARM UP AND COOL DOWN
WARM UP
The first 2 to 5 minutes of a workout should be devoted to warming up. The warm-up will limber your
muscles and prepare them for more strenuous exercise. Make sure that you warm-up on your Horizon
Fitness product at a slow pace.
COOL DOWN
Never stop exercising suddenly! A cool-down period allows your heart to readjust to the decreased
demand. Make sure that your cool down period consists of a very slow pace to allow your heart rate to
lower. After the cool-down, repeat the stretching exercises on page 34 to loosen and relax your muscles.
35
Achieving Your Fitness Goals
An important step in developing a long term fitness program is to determine your goals. Is your primary goal for exercising on your Horizon Fitness recumbent bike to lose weight? Improve muscle?
Burn Stress? Prepare for the spring racing schedule? Knowing what your goals are will help you
develop a more successful exercise program. Below are some common exercise goals:
•
•
•
•
•
Weight Loss
Improve Body Shape and Tone
Increased Energy Level
Improved Sports Performance
Improved Cardiovascular Endurance
•
•
•
•
Weight Maintenance
Strengthen Leg Muscles
Improved Sleep Patterns
Stress Reduction
If possible try to define your personal goals in precise, measurable terms, and then put your goals in
writing. The more specific you can be, the easier it will be to track your progress. If your goals are
long term, divide them up into monthly and weekly segments. Longer term goals can lose some of
the immediate motivation benefits. Short term goals are easier to achieve. Your Horizon Fitness
recumbent bike console provides you with several readouts that can be used to record your progress.
You can track Distance, Calories or Time. Time is the most important and useful of test functions.
KEEPING AN EXERCISE DIARY
Photocopy the weekly and monthly log sheets on the following pages to make your personal exercise
log book. As time goes by you’ll be able to look back with pride at the work you’ve done. As your fitness improves, you can look back and see how far you’ve come.
