OPERATION OF YOUR ELLIPTICAL
FE44 Console
POWER UP
Power the elliptical on by plugging it into an appropriate wall outlet.
When it is first powered on, the console will perform an internal self-test. During this time all the
lights will turn on, the Message Window display will show a software version (i.e.: VER 1.0), and the
Distance Window will display an odometer reading. The odometer shows how many virtual miles
the elliptical has gone. The Time Window shows how many total hours the elliptical has been used.
The odometer and time will remain displayed for only a few seconds then the console will go to
the startup display. The dot matrix display will be scrolling through the different workout profiles
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. The resistance level can be adjusted manually by pressing the Level UP/DOWN buttons.
Basic Information and Functions:
Message Window:
Each time the Enter button is pressed the next set of information will appear. In Data Scan mode, the
displayed information will change every 4 seconds in the Message Window. The Message Window will
initially display Segment Time then Total Laps, Level and Data Scan.
The Stop button actually has several functions.Pressing the Stop key once during a program will Pause
the program for 5 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 during Pause just press the
Start key. If the Stop button is pressed twice during a workout the program will end and a Workout Summary is displayed.
If the Stop key is held down for 3 seconds the console will perform a complete Reset. During data entry
for a program the Stop key performs a Previous Screen function. This allows you to go back one step in
the programming each time you press the Stop key.
There is an Audio In 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.
A message about Calories: Calorie readings on every piece of exercise equipment,
whether it is in a gym or at home, are not accurate and tend to vary widely. They are
meant only as a guide to monitor your progress from workout to workout. The only way to measure your
calorie burn accurately as in a clinical setting connected to a host of machines. This is because every
person is different and burns calories at a different rate.

ENTERING A PROGRAM/CHANGING SETTINGS
The profile for each program will be displayed in the dot matrix window. Press the Program 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. So the last Age and
Weight entered will be saved as the new default settings. If you enter Age and Weight the first time
use the elliptical you will not have to enter it every time you work out unless either Age or Weight has
changed or someone else enters a different Age and Weight.
MAINTENANCE MENU IN CONSOLE SOFTWARE

PRESET PROGRAMS
The console has five different programs that have been designed for a variety of workouts.
These five programs have factory preset work level 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 cardiovascular function and
endurance. 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 forces you to sustain it. This is designed to strengthen and tone your legs
and glutes (muscles of the butt).
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 cardiovascular system gets programmed to use oxygen more efficiently
this way. This program also forces your body to become more efficient due to
spikes in heart rate, between recovery periods. This aids in heart rate recovery from intense activities.

FE44 ELLIPTICAL
USER PROGRAMS
The customizable User programs allow you to build and save your own workout. You can build your own
custom program by following the instructions below.
1. Select the User program (U1 or U2) by USER1 or USER2 program keys then press Enter. If you have
already saved a program to either U1 or U2, it will be displayed and you are ready to begin. If not, you
will have the option of inputing a username. In the Message Window, the letter “A” will be blinking. Use
the Level UP/DOWN buttons to select the appropri- ate first letter of your name (Pressing the Level
button will switch to the letter “B”; pressing the Down button will switch to letter “Z”). Press Enter
whenthe desired letter is displayed. Repeat this process until all of the characters of your name have
been programmed (maximum 7 characters). When finished press Stop.
2. If there is a program already stored in User when you press the key, you will have an option to run the
program as it is or delete the program and build a new one. At the welcome message screen, when
pressing Start or Enter you will be prompted: Run Program? Use the Level UP/DOWN to select Yes or No.
If you select No, you will then be asked if you want to delete the currently saved program. It is necessary
to delete the current program if you want to build a new one.
3. The Message Window will ask you to enter your Age. You may enter your age using the Level UP/DOWN
keys, then press the Enter key to accept the new number and proceed on to the next screen.

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.

FE44 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.
2.
3.
Wipe down all areas in the sweat path with a damp cloth after each workout.
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 werei. 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.

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.
