How to adjust the Seat Pad
To adjust the seat rail
according to a user’s
height, pull up on the stop
bar (P) and set the seat to
the most comfortable
location which allows the
rider to have a smooth and
comfortable motion. The
proper way to cycle is to
have the knees slightly bent
during the furthest pedal
rotation.
How to transport the bike
If the machine needs to be transported to a different location, stand at the front
of the machine and push down on the front handle bars until the weight of the
machine is transferred to the transport wheels and the rear of the machine is in
the air. You can now easily move the machine to a new location. Gently set the
machine down at its new location.

Getting Started
The first step to operate the computer is to set-up the calendar mode, which is only
displayed in the sleep mode. The sleep mode will be turned on if the unit has not been
used for four minutes, or if no RPM’s have been recorded. When the computer is first
plugged in to a power source the computer will activate and all of the numbers
associated with the computer will briefly flash. The calendar setting will be the first
adjustment that needs to be changed. The year will be shown in the upper right hand
corner. Use the center dial to change the year, and then press the center dial inward to
select next function. Repeat the same steps for month, day, and time. The time will be a
24 hour clock or military time. Once all of the information is entered, the computer will be
selected to manual mode (Man.). If the computer is left inactive, it will divert to sleep
mode, where the temperature, time, and calendar will be shown. If the time or date
needs to be adjusted unplug power source or remove batteries and re-insert power
sources to enter into this mode. Note: There is no way to adjust a brightness of the sleep
mode as the purpose for the sleep mode is to save energy and to act as a quick guide
for time and temperature.
ENTER
The enter button is used to select an entry; for example, if the computer flashed (MAN.) for
manual mode and the enter button was pressed, it would select the manual mode (MAN.)
and the load/watt would flash asking if the resistance wanted to be changed. If no
resistance is added and the enter button is pressed it would go to the next value which is time
distance, calories, pulse, load watt, and time. The center dial can also be used as an enter
button.
RESET
The reset button is used to cycle back to the last function. If the reset button is held down for
4 seconds, the computer will beep and will completely reset going back to the original
start-up window. An example of how the reset button works is if the manual mode (MAN.) is
selected with the enter button and this function is not desired, by pressing the reset once it will
eliminate this function and then it will return to the last menu or function.
RECOVERY
The recovery program is designed to evaluate a user’s fitness immediately after a
workout. The computer must be provided a pulse from a heart rate transmitter or the
hand pulse sensors. If the hand pulse sensors are used, they must be held firmly during
the 60 second countdown while it evaluates your pulse. When the 60 seconds are
finished, a F1, F2… to F6 result will be displayed. The primary purpose for this function is
to be used as a guide to assist with evaluated levels of heart recovery. The healthier or
more athletic a person, the sooner the heart will go back to resting rate, which will
result in a lower score. The less athletic, the longer it will take the heart to reach resting
rate. The recovery button is not a cool down program and is only designed to help
evaluate a user’s heart recovery.
How to use the recovery function:
1) Once a workout is completed, stop working out immediately.
2) Press the recovery button.
3) The computer will need a signal from either the heart rate contacts or a
wireless chest band receiver.
4) Once the time has counted down, a result will be displayed. When finished
using this function, press recovery button to exit.

Display Readouts
Time
The time readout is the duration of a workout, the time can count up or down. An example
would be if 30:00 minutes are selected and the start button is pressed, the time will count
down. If no time is entered, time will count up. The timer counts up or down from (0:00 to
99:99)
Distance
Total miles achieved during workout which will count up if no desired distance is selected, or
will count down if a desired distance is entered. Example: If 5 miles is selected the machine
18
will continue to read every value until 5 miles has been accomplished. The distance value will
count down, while the other values will count up. Once the 5 miles is achieved, the computer
will beep and the computer will stop. Distance will be calculated as miles, which will show
next to the Distance readout as M.
Calories
Total calories achieved during a workout will count up if no desired calories are selected, or
will count down if a desired calorie count is entered. Example: If 300 calories is set as a goal,
the machine will continue to read every value until 300 calories has been accomplished. The
calorie value will count down, while the other values will count up. Once the 300 calories is
achieved, the computer will beep and the computer will stop.

Pulse
Current heart rate displayed, measured with pulse sensors or wireless chest receiver. Every
time the hand pulse is held, the users pulse will have to be calculated and the readout will
start from a lower number and calculate upwards to the users correct measured heart rate;
For example, if the hand held pulse sensors are gripped correctly, a heart will flash while the
computer evaluates a correct readout for about 10 seconds. The number will generally start
off at around 75 BPM, and depending on how high a user’s heart rate is the readout will
continue to read until it gets to the user accurate range. If the pulse sensors are let go for an
extended amount of time, the computer will need to re-evaluate a correct pulse which will
need to build back up to the correct heart rate range. A heart will display for a few seconds
while the pulse is evaluated followed by the pulse readout. It is recommended to use a
wireless chest strap in order for the computer to receive the most accurate heart rate
readout. This will ensure that the pulse readout will continuously receive a signal from the
receiver and will display the readout in the pulse value until the user has removed the wireless
chest strap or is out of the three foot transmitting range of the receiver.
Manual mode
Manual mode is represented on your display as “MAN.” Press the enter button or center dial
button to select this mode. Use the center dial to scroll and to select a desired load, time,
19
distance, calories, or pulse. Keep in mind you do not have to enter a selection for all
categories. You may just enter time and then hit Start/Stop to begin. By entering a value for
the distance, calories, or pulse, you are setting a goal other than time, which if reached will
beep; simply indicating you have reached one of the set goals. If a desired pulse goal is
reached the computer display will beep until the heart rate is below the setting, meanwhile
the computer will not stop. Where as if time, distance, or calories are reached, the display will
beep and the workout will end.
User Mode
User Mode is represented on your display as “USER.” Press enter or the center dial button to
select. In this program you will get the chance to create your own program. For each
segments (20 in total) you will use the center dial to adjust for Load up or down by turning the
dial clockwise or counter clockwise. After each segment is adjusted, press enter or the center
dial to select the next value and repeat this process for all of the 20 segments or simply press
and hold the enter or center dial for 2 seconds until display beeps. The user program is now
created. If adjustments are needed on any of the 20 segments, simply select “USER” and
repeat above mentioned steps. This program is not a user profile.
Program Mode
Program mode is represented on your display as “PROG.” Press enter or the center dial button
to select. Use the center dial to scroll thru the choices of the 12 available preset programs.
There is a second delay while cycling thru the different programs, the profile of the program
will be displayed. Once a desired program is selected press any of the enter buttons to select.
Use the center dial and enter to adjust for load, time, distance, calories, and pulse. If only
time is needed for the workout, simply press and select the time and then press Start/Stop to
begin. If any other value is entered such as distance, calories, or pulse, you are setting a goal
other than time which, when reached will beep simply indicating you have reached one of
the goals. When the pulse goal is reached the display will beep until the heart rate goes
below the selected heart rate. This is the only value that will allow the computer to continue.
All other settings such as time, distance, or calories, when reached, the display will beep and
the workout will end.

Fat Burning Programs
Fat burning programs are designed to rapidly elevate and lower heart rate by creating a
rapid resistance and then light resistance with multiple intervals.
Program 2: Intervals
Program 3: Stairs
Program 12: Mesa
Program 7: High/Low Intervals
Cardio Programs
Cardio programs are designed to gradually elevate and lower the heart rate by creating a
steady increase in resistance and slowly bring the resistance down.
Program 1: Mountain 1
Program 4: Mountain 2
Program 5: Hill 1
Program 8: Hill 2
Performance Programs
Performance programs are designed to raise the heart rate for a longer period of time by
creating a rapid resistance and then maintaining that for a longer period then dropping to a
light resistance with long flat plateaus.
Program 6: Long Stairs
Program 9: Peak
Program 10: Highland
Program 11: Plateau
Heart Rate Control Mode
Heart Rate Control mode is represented on your display as “H.R.C.” Press enter or the center
dial button to select. Use the center dial to adjust for a user’s age, the computer will
automatically figure out what 55%, 75%, and 90% heart rate range is by entering the user’s
age. Use the center dial to scroll through a choice of 55%, 75%, 90%, or TAG. The T.A.G.
program allows a user adjust their personal desired target heart rate. These programs are
designed to keep the pulse at a certain percentage of a user’s total heart rate during the
duration of the workout by adjusting the resistance automatically. Use the center dial or enter
button to adjust any of the values for time, distance, and calories. If a user wants to just begin,
press the start/stop button, or select and enter a time then press start/stop. By entering
distance and calories, a user is setting a goal other than time which, if reached will beep
simply indicating that that value has been reached and the set goal is completed. If a
wireless chest strap is not being used during the workout, the hand grip receivers will need to
be held during the whole workout. If no heart rate signal is detected the workout will end.
Please note: While using the H.R.C. Mode, there may be up to a 5 minute warm-up period
before the machine automatically adjusts on its own.

values do not have to be entered or selection for all categories. If a user wants to just begin,
press the start/stop button, or select and enter a time then press start/stop. By entering
distance, calories, or pulse, a user is setting a goal other than time which, when reached will
beep simply indicating that one of the goals has been reached. When pulse goal is reached
the display will beep, you may continue. In all other settings such as time, distance, or calories,
when reached, the computer display will beep and the workout will end.
Sleep Mode
When there is no movement or activity with the display or machine it will automatically enter
into a sleep mode. The computer display, will faintly show room temperature as well as year,
month, day, and time as set through calendar mode. Review the section labeled “Getting
Started” regarding sleep mode.
22
Chest Strap
The computer is equipped with a built-in international standard 5 kHz bandwidth, Polar
compatible receiver to monitor a single user’s heart rate at one time. To get an accurate
reading for the heart rate, it is recommended that a wireless chest strap be used during every
work out. To get an accurate reading you will need to be within three feet of the computer
and no less than four feet away from other users using a transmitter.
How to properly wear a wireless chest strap/transmitter:
1. Buckle one end of the chest strap onto the transmitter
2. Adjust the strap so that it can be buckled into the other end of the chest strap, it must
fit snug on your chest, but not too tight to restrict your breathing.
3. The center part of the transmitter must be just below your sternum and fit below the
chest/pectoral muscles
4. Moisten the conductive electrode strips touching your skin with water, ECG gel or other
conductive liquids. Do not use Vaseline or oils which may isolate the transmitter making
it unable to detect the heart rate signals.
5. After every use, wash the transmitter with a towel and warm soap solution and dry the
transmitter thoroughly. The elastic strap should only be hand washed in warm water
and never placed in a washing machine and never dried using a dryer. To maximize
the battery life, store in a dry area.
6. Do not stretch or bend the transmitter as this will damage the electrodes.
Chest Strap Troubleshooting: No heart rate reading
9 Check that the elastic strap is tight enough around your body.
9 Check that the electrodes on the transmitter are moistened properly.
9 Check that the transmitter electrodes are clean.
9 While wearing your the transmitter, adjust the strap to get a different position.
9 If transmitter was just strapped on, wait a few minutes so that the transmitter gets a
good connection with your body. When you start to sweat the connection may
improve.
9
Check to see if battery is still working. The estimated average battery life of the
transmitter is 2000 hours of use. If the battery of the transmitter is running low, the
transmission range decreases and may cause errors similar to the ones listed above.
Heart Rate reading is erratic (heart symbol flashes irregularly)
23
9 Check that the receiver is within the three feet maximum distance from the transmitter
9 A Hairy chest may also weaken the contact. Try to find the best possible position for the
transmitter.
Heart Rate is very high (above 200bpm)
9 Your wireless transmitter is a sensitive device and may fluctuate erratically because it
may temporarily be affected by strong electromagnetic and/or radio signals. This may
cause erratic and often elevated heart rate displays. Common sources causing
interference include televisions, wireless internet transmitters, cell phones, computers,
cars and high voltage power lines. Check your surroundings and move away from the
source of interference.
9 Note: That Static electricity from clothing or a flapping shirt can cause electrical
interference, so some items of clothing, i.e. man-made fibers, can also be the cause.
Please try wetting the T-shirt in the area where the transmitter is.
9 In some cases where the transmission range is at its extremes, for example rowing or
biking where the receiver is not attached to the wrist, the receiver may display the
same heart rate for a long time. To avoid this, keep the distance within 3 feet.
Workout Guidelines and Tips
There are a few really common and simple concepts that can be followed everyday to
improve health and maximize your workouts. Eat right, drink lots of water, get enough sleep,
and exercise a minimum of 2 times a week. Make sure while choosing foods that the total
consumed has fewer calories than is burning in a given day. In order to adjust the bodies
metabolism and stimulate it, eat a combination of lean proteins (Fish, Poultry, lentils) and
healthy carbohydrates (whole meal bread, brown rice, whole grain cereals) every few hours
throughout the day to speed up fat loss and maintain stable energy levels. The best results
occur when meals are split in to six small meals a day. In three hours if hunger sets in, the food
portion sizes are correct. If hunger sets in sooner, then increase food portion. If in four or five
hours, hunger has not set in, portions are too big. It is recommended that other avenues of
research be investigated regarding proper nutrition and meal plans.

Body responses and benefits to a pre workout warm up.
Hold each stretch for a slow count of 20 seconds on each side of the body. Ensure a gentle
sensation is achieved throughout the stretch, which is stretching the muscles. Gradually
increasing in heart rate will Increase the delivery of oxygen to the working areas of the bodies
muscles. Stretching will help to open capillaries in working muscles increasing muscle blood
flow (more oxygen available). By increasing muscle and body temperature one will greatly
increase the range of movement and prevent risk of injury.

How to remove the computer console
In order to remove the computer
console, a flat head screw driver
will be needed to press a plastic tab
that is located on the rear of the
computer. This plastic tab locks into
place on the E1 central support
tube. The plastic tab will need to be
pressed while the computer console
is pushed upward until the tab is
free.
NOTE: That the plastic cover on the front of the
central support tube may need to be pushed down
to expose the opening.

Center support tube
that the plastic tab
on the computer
locks into.
Once the computer is free from the center
support tube hole, slowly pull the
computer away. Be careful to not pinch
or cut the computer wires while moving
the computer away. When the computer
console is ready to be re-installed, make
sure that the computer wires are secure.
While sliding the computer on, push the
computer wires back into the center
support tube and be very careful to not
pinch or bind up the wires.

Cleaning and Maintenance
The LifeCore 900RB is made from the best materials and has been tested and received a
quality control review prior to its packaging to ensure the correct parts and proper fitting of
each component. This machine was designed to limit the amount of assembly needed by a
customer. The amount of maintenance required is very little and very simple; however, a
failure to implement preventative maintenance suggestions can prevent the machine from
operating as designed. The 900RB is only for indoor use and should not be stored in damp,
extremely cold or hot areas as this will damage the unit voiding the warranty.
Rules:
¾ Never use WD-40 or any type of silicone spray to ever lubricate any moving parts. The
unit was lubricated at the factory with long lasting lithium grease.
¾ Always clean the machine after use.
1) Clean the unit with a light soap and water mixture, or a light house hold cleaner
such as glass cleaner. The purpose of cleaning the unit is to remove body sweat
which contains salt. Salt is the number one factor that will cause the unit to rust or
the electronics to stop working.
2) Dry the unit off with a clean towel to remove left over moister.
¾ After the first 12 hours of use, check and tighten any bolts, nuts, screws, pedals, seat
assembly, etc. making sure that they are tight and working properly.
1) The number one service issue is loose hardware. Loose hardware can cause the
unit to tick, creak, thump, knock, etc. After the first 12 hours once all the hardware
has been tightened, the hardware should be checked every 3 months. The pedals
may need to be tightened down every month.
¾ Only use the appropriate power source, never use an adapter that is not certified for
the unit as a wrong adapter will cause the electronics to over heat and malfunction.
AC Adapter US standard with maximum wattage 4.5W - I/P: 120V AC 60HZ - O/P:
(DC9V 500MA)
