POWER
Your programmable elliptical is powered by a power supply. The power must be plugged into the power jack,
which is located in the front of the machine near the STABILIZER TUBE. Make sure the console power switch is
in in the ON position. Note: Not all units have an ON/OFF switch on the console.

Do not operate the elliptical if the power cord or plug is damaged.

TROUBLESHOOTING
& MAINTENANCE
Your elliptical offers a variety of foot positions. Moving your foot to the forward most position of the foot pad
increases your step height, which will create a feel similar to a step machine. Placing your foot toward the
back of the foot pad decreases your step height and creates more of a gliding feel, similar to a smooth walk or
run.
Your elliptical also allows you to pedal both forward and backwards to offer a variation to your workout and to
focus on other major leg muscle groups such as your hamstrings and calves.

WATTS DESCRIPTION: A WATT is a measurement of your power output based on the resistance level and speed
you are pedaling. For example, if you lower the resistance level and increase your pedaling speed you can still be
outputting the same number of watts. Many people will use WATTS as a way to gauge the relative intensity of a

Pulse grips
CONDITIONING
GUIDELINES
Place the palm of your hands directly on the grip pulse handlebars. Both hands must grip the bars for your heart
rate to register. It takes 5 consecutive heart beats (15-20 seconds) for your heart rate to register. When gripping
the pulse handlebars, do not grip tightly. Holding the grips tightly may elevate your blood pressure. Keep a loose,
cupping hold. You may experience an erratic readout if consistently holding the grip pulse handlebars. Make sure
to clean the pulse sensors to ensure proper contact can be maintained.
WIRELESS CHEST TRANSMITTER (EX-75 ONLY)
TROUBLESHOOTING
& MAINTENANCE
Prior to wearing the wireless 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 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.
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.

HOW HARD? (Intensity of Workouts)
How hard you workout is also determined by your goals. If you use your machine to prepare for a 5K workout,
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
(using the grip pulse handlebars or a wireless chest transmitter - may be sold separately), and the second is by
evaluating your perceived exertion level (this is simpler than it sounds!).
CONDITIONING
GUIDELINES
BEFORE
YOU BEGIN
80% of Max Heart Rate: For advanced users and short workouts. Burns fat, strengthens and tones
muscles, and challenges the entire cardiovascular system.
For aerobic exercise benefits, it’s recommended that you exercise from between 24 and 60 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.
PERCEIVED EXERTION LEVEL
A simple 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 these warning signs of overexertion.

65% of Max Heart Rate: Used for beginner to intermediate users and mid to long range workouts.
Lower intensity and longer duration helps burn fat more efficiently.
IMPORTANT
PRECAUTIONS
70% of Max Heart Rate: For intermediate users and mid range cardio workouts.
While this range burns fat it really challenges the cardiovascular system and helps strengthen the heart.
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 breakfast, 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. 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!

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 console provides you with several readouts that can
be used to record your progress. You can track Distance, Calories or Time.

• If you are hearing a noise, does it come from the front, back or inside? What kind of noise is it (thumping,
grinding, squeaking, chirping etc.)?
• If you are having a resistance problem what is occurring? Is the resistance always too hard or too easy?
Does the resistance respond when pushing the buttons on the console? Does the resistance constantly cycle
through the levels during the workout?
• Has the machine been maintained per the maintenance schedule?
• Does the problem occur when using the handlebars? Without using the handlebars?

WHY IS THE ELLIPTICAL I HAD DELIVERED LOUDER THAN THE ONE AT THE STORE?
BEFORE
YOU BEGIN
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?
Clean with soap and water cleaners only. Never use solvents on plastic parts.
AFTER EACH USE (DAILY)
Turn off the elliptical by unplugging the power cord from the wall outlet
• Wipe down the elliptical with a damp cloth. Never use solvents, as they can cause damage to the
elliptical.
• Inspect the power cord. If the power cord is damaged, contact Horizon Fitness.
• Make sure the power cord is not underneath the elliptical or in any other area where it can become
pinched or cut.
ELLIPTICAL
OPERATION
To remove power from the elliptical, the power cord must be disconnected from
the wall outlet.
CAN I MOVE THE TRAINER EASILY ONCE IT IS ASSEMBLED?
CONDITIONING
GUIDELINES
CAN I PEDAL BACKWARDS ON MY ELLIPTICAL?
Your elliptical allows you to pedal both forward and backwards to exercise and strengthen a wider range
of muscles.
ASSEMBLY
Cleanliness of your elliptical 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.
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.
Your elliptical has a pair of transport wheels built into the front legs. It is easy to move your elliptical by
rolling it on the front transport wheels. It is important that you place your elliptical in a comfortable and
inviting room. Your elliptical is designed to use minimal floor space. Many people will place their ellipticals
facing the TV or a picture window. If at all possible, avoid putting your elliptical in a unfinished basement.
To make exercise a desirable daily activity for you, the elliptical should be in a comfortable setting.
IMPORTANT
PRECAUTIONS
HOW DO I CLEAN MY ELLIPTICAL?
BEFORE
YOU BEGIN
ASSEMBLY
Our ellipticals 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 ellipticals.
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.
We use sealed bearings throughout our ellipticals so lubrication is not needed. The most important
maintenance step is to simply wipe your perspiration off the trainer after each use.
ELLIPTICAL
OPERATION
ARE THE SOUNDS MY ELLIPTICAL MAKES NORMAL?

Clean underneath the elliptical, following these steps:
• Turn off the elliptical
• Move the elliptical to a remote location.
• Wipe or vacuum any dust particles or other objects that may have accumulated underneath the
elliptical.
• Return the elliptical to its previous position.
