Power Up
The Elliptical is supplied with an external power supply. When power is connected to the Elliptical, the console will automatically power up. If there is no input to the console for 20 minutes
the console will go to stand-by mode. In stand-by mode the console display will turn off. To
turn the console on press any key.
When initially powered on the console will perform an internal self-test. During this time all
the lights will turn on. When the lights go off the dot matrix display will show a software version (i.e.: VER 1.0) and the message window will display an odometer reading. The odometer
reading displays how many hours the elliptical has been used and how many virtual miles
the elliptical has gone. The time in hours will be to the left and the odometer in miles will be
displayed to the right.
The odometer will remain displayed for only a few seconds, then the console will go to the
start up display. The dot matrix display will be scrolling through the different workout profiles
of the programs and the message window will be scrolling the start up message. You may
now begin to use the console.

Console Operation
Quick Start Mode
This is the quickest way to start a workout. After the console powers up you just press the Start
key to begin, this will initiate the Quick Start mode. In Quick Start the Time will count up from zero
and the workload may be adjusted manually by pressing the 5/6 keys. The dot matrix display will
show a 1/4-mile track with a lap counter in the center to monitor your progress.
Basic Information and Functions:
Message Window:
Will initially be displaying the Time, Program name and Distance (in miles). Each time the Enter
key is pressed the next set of information will appear, three sets of data in all. The next set of
information displayed is: Speed (in mph), RPM (pedaling speed) and Watts (indication of work
level). The third set displayed is: Calories, Level (work level from 1-20) and Pulse (heart rate in
beats per minute). Pressing the Enter key one more time will set the display to scan mode where
the data will change every 4 seconds.
The elliptical has a built in Heart Rate Monitoring System. Simply grasping the hand pulse
sensors on the stationary handle bars will start the heart icon blinking (this may take a few
seconds). The Pulse Display Window will display your heart rate, or Pulse, in beats per minute.
The Stop key actually has several functions. Pressing the Stop key once during a program will
pause the program for five minutes. If you need to get a drink, answer the phone or any of the
many things that could interrupt your workout, this is a great feature. To resume your workout just
press the Start key. If the Stop key is pressed twice during a workout the program will end and a
summary of your workout is displayed. If the Stop key is held down for three seconds the console
will perform a complete reset. During data entry for a program the Stop key will take you back
one step in the programming each time you press the key.
There is an Audio Input Jack on the front of the console and built-in speakers. You may plug any
low-level audio source signal into this port. Audio sources include MP3, iPod, portable radio, CD
player or even a TV or computer audio signal.

Programming The Console
Each of the programs can be customized with your personal information and changed to suit your
needs. Some of the information asked for is necessary to ensure the readouts are correct. You
will be asked for your age and weight. Entering your age and weight aides in calculating a more
correct Calorie reading. Although we cannot provide an exact calorie count, we do want to be as
close as possible.
Calorie Note: Calorie readings on every piece of exercise equipment, whether it is in a gym or
at home, are estimates. They are meant only as a guide to monitor your progress from workout
to workout. The only way to measure your calorie burn accurately is in a clinical setting. This is
because each individual is different and burns calories at a different rate.
Entering a Program/Changing Settings
Press each program key to scroll through the program selections. The profile for each program
will be displayed in the dot matrix window. Press the Enter key to select a program and begin
customizing the settings. If you want to workout without entering new settings then just press the
Start key. This will bypass the programming of data and take you directly to the start of your
workout. If you want to change the personal settings then just follow the instructions in the
message window. If you start a program without changing the settings, the default settings will be
used.
Note: Age and Weight default settings will change when you enter a new number. The last age
and weight entered will be saved as the new default settings. If you enter your age and weight the
first time you use the elliptical you will not have to enter it every time you work out unless either
your age or weight changes or someone else enters a different age and weight.

Preset Programs
The FS4.0e has five different programs that have been designed to provide a variety of
workouts.These programs have factory preset profiles for achieving different goals.
Hill
The Hill program simulates going up and down a hill. The resistance
in the pedals will steadily increase and then decrease
during the program.
Fat Burn
The Fat Burn program is designed, as the name implies, to maximize
the burning of fat. There are many schools of thought on the best way to
burn fat but most experts agree that a lower exertion level that stays at a
steady workload is the best. The absolute best way to burn fat is to keep
your heart rate at around 60% to 70% of its maximum potential. This
program does not use heart rate but simulates a lower, steady exertion
workout.
Cardio
The Cardio program is designed to increase your Cardio vascular function. This is exercise for your heart and lungs. It will build up your heart
muscle and increase blood flow and lung capacity. This is achieved by
incorporating a higher level of exertion with slight fluctuations in work.
Strength
The Strength program is designed to increase muscular strength in your
lower body. This program will steadily increase in resistance to a high
level and then keeps you there. This is designed to strengthen and tone
your legs and glutes.
Interval
The Interval program takes you through high levels of intensity followed
by periods of low intensity. This program increases your endurance by
depleting your oxygen level followed by periods of recovery to replenish
oxygen. Your cardio vascular system gets programmed to use oxygen
more efficiently this way.
15

Heart Rate
The old motto, “no pain, no gain”, is a myth that has been overpowered by the benefits of
exercising comfortably. A great deal of this success has been promoted by the use of heart rate
monitors. With the proper use of a heart rate monitor, many people find that their usual choice of
exercise intensity was either too high or too low and exercise is much more enjoyable by
maintaining their heart rate in the desired benefit range.
To determine the benefit range in which you wish to train, you must first determine your predicted
Maximum Heart Rate. This can be accomplished by using the following formula: 220 minus your
age. This will give you the predicted Maximum Heart Rate (MHR) for someone of your age. To determine the effective heart rate range for specific goals you simply calculate a percentage of your
MHR. Your heart rate training zone is 50% to 90% of your maximum heart rate. 60% of your MHR
is the zone that burns fat, while 80% is for strengthening the cardio vascular system. This 60% to
80% is the zone to stay in for maximum benefit.
For someone who is 40 years old their
predicted target heart rate zone is calculated:
220 – 40 = 180 (maximum heart rate)
180 x .6 = 108 beats per minute
(60% of maximum)
180 X .8 = 144 beats per minute
(80% of maximum)
So for a 40 year old the training zone would be
108 to 144 beats per minute.
The two most popular reasons for, or goals, of exercise are cardiovascular fitness (training for the
heart and lungs) and weight control. The black
columns on the chart above represent the MHR
for a person whose age is listed at the bottom of each column. The training heart rate, for either
cardiovascular fitness or weight loss, is represented by two different lines that cut diagonally
through the chart. A definition of the lines’ goal is in the bottom left-hand corner of the chart. If your
goal is cardiovascular fitness or if it is weight loss, it can be achieved by training at 80% or 60%,
respectively, of your MHR on a schedule approved by your physician. Consult your physician
before participating in any exercise program.

FS4.0e Elliptical
Rate of Perceived Exertion
Heart rate is important but listening to your body also has a lot of advantages. There are
more variables involved in how hard you should workout than just heart rate. Your stress
level, physical health, emotional health, temperature, humidity, the time of day, the last
time you ate and what you ate all contribute to the intensity at which you should
workout. If you listen to your body it will tell you all of these things.
The rate of perceived exertion (RPE), also known as the Borg scale, was developed by
Swedish physiologist G.A.V. Borg. This scale rates exercise intensity from 6 to 20
depending upon how you feel or the perception of your effort.
The scale is as follows:
Rating Perception of Effort
6 Minimal
7 Very,very light
8 Very,very light +
9 Very light
10 Very light +
11 Fairly light
12 Comfortable
13 Somewhat hard
14 Somewhat hard +
15 Hard
16 Hard +
17 Very hard
18 Very hard +
19 Very,very hard
20 Maximal
You can get an approximate heart rate level for each rating by simply adding a zero to
each rating. For example a rating of 12 will result in an approximate heart rate of 120
beats per minute. Your RPE will vary depending on the factors discussed earlier. If your
body is strong and rested, you will feel strong and your pace will feel comfortable. When
your body is in this condition, you are able to train harder and the RPE will support this. If
you are feeling tired and sluggish, it is because your body needs a break. In this
condition, your pace will feel difficult. Again, this will show up in your RPE and you
will train at the proper level for that day.

General Maintenance
1. Wipe down all areas in the sweat path with a damp cloth after each workout.
2. If a squeak, thump, clicking or rough feeling develops, the main cause is most likely one of two reasons:
i. The hardware was not sufficiently tightened during assembly. All bolts that were
installed during assembly need to be tightened as much as possible. It may be
necessary to use a larger wrench than the one provided if you cannot tighten the bolts sufficiently. The
majority of calls to the service department for noise issues can be traced to loose hardware or the rear
rails being dirty.
ii. Dirt build-up on the rear rails and polyurethane wheels are also a source of noise. Noise from build-up
on the rails can cause a thumping sound that you would swear is coming from inside the main body
of the machine because noise travels and is amplified in the tubing of the frame. Clean the rails and
wheels with a lint free cloth and rubbing alcohol. Stubborn build-up can be removed with your
thumbnail or a non-metallic scraper, like the back edge of a plastic knife. After cleaning, apply a
small amount of lubricant on the rails with your fingers or a lint free cloth. You only need a thin
coat of lubrication, wipe off any excess.
3. If squeaks or other noises persist, check that the unit is properly leveled before calling the service
department.
Elliptical Noises
Your new elliptical is engineered and manufactured to the strictest industry standards and tolerances. All elliptical trainers, no matter who the manufacturer, have a multitude of moving linkages and parts. Be aware that even
with the tightest mechanical tolerances there still could be a slight amount of play between some parts. This
inherent play can result in slight noises during use such as clicks and small thumps. Please expect that the
elliptical will not be completely silent.
