1.2
SETUP
Read the entire Operation Manual before setting up the Lifecycle exercise bike.
WHERE TO PLACE THE LIFECYCLE EXERCISE BIKE
Following all safety instructions in Section 1.1, move the bike to the location in which it will be used. See Section 7, titled
Specifications, for the dimensions of the footprint. Allow a distance of 16 inches, or 41 centimeters, between the widest
part of the bike and other objects on either side. Allow a distance of 3 feet, or 1 meter, between the front or rear of the bike
to any other objects.
HOW TO STABILIZE THE LIFECYCLE EXERCISE BIKE
After placing the bike in position, check the unit’s stability by attempting to rock
it from side to side. Any slight rocking indicates that the unit must be leveled.
Determine which foot is not resting completely on the floor. Loosen the jam nut
with an open-end 9/16-inch wrench, and rotate the stabilizing foot to lower it.
Verify that the bike is stable, and repeat the adjustment as necessary until the
unit no longer rocks. Lock the adjustment by tightening the jam nut against the
stabilizer bar.
HOW TO ADJUST THE SEAT
It is important to adjust the seat to an optimal height for pedaling on the Lifecycle Exercise Bike. Pedaling with the seat too
low can place excessive strain on the knees and quadriceps muscles. Pedaling with the seat too high can irritate the feet,
ankles, hips, and knees. To determine whether or not the seat requires adjustment, sit on it and place the balls of the feet
on the pedals. The knee should bend slightly when the pedal is at the lowest point of its rotation. It should be possible to
pedal without locking the knees or shifting in the seat.
The bike features a vertical ratchet seat adjustment system, which makes it easy and safe to change the height of the
seat quickly. To raise the seat, either lift the body so that there is no weight on the seat, or get off the bike. Then, simply
pull the seat upward to the desired height, and let it lock into place. Test and re-adjust the seat height as necessary.
To lower the seat, first get off the bike. Holding the seat, pull up the adjustment lever in front of the seat post to unlock the post, let the seat
slide down to the desired height, and release the lever to lock the post
into place. Test and re-adjust the seat height as necessary.
CAUTION: When using the height adjustment mechanism
to change the height of a partially raised seat, hold the seat
to prevent it from falling on the hand.
MISE EN GARDE - Lorsque vous utilisez le mécanisme de
réglage de la hauteur pour monter une selle déjà partiellement surélevée, maintenez cette dernière afin qu'elle ne
vous tombe pas sur la main.
7
HOW TO ADJUST THE PEDAL STRAPS
The bike pedal straps keep the user’s shoes on the pedals during a workout. The straps should fit comfortably, but they also
should be tight enough to prevent shoes from slipping at any point in the pedaling rotation. Before working out, a user should
test and adjust the tightness of the straps.
The safety straps on the foot pedals can be adjusted to fit a variety of shoe sizes. The straps are held in place by two
knobs that extend from either side of each pedal. The “inner” knob extends sideways, that is, toward the bike. The “outer”
knob extends downward. The ends of each strap are perforated with slots that fit tightly over the knobs. The “inner” end of
each strap is perforated with two slots, and the “outer” segment of the strap is perforated with a row of slots.
To tighten or loosen a strap, grasp the outer end, and pull it back, away from the knob, until the strap slides off. Pull the
strap out through the outer loop on the pedal. Rest the foot on the pedal, and wrap the strap over the foot to determine the
desired length. Thread the strap through the outer loop on the pedal, tuck it under the pedal, select the appropriate slot,
and pull that slot down over the knob, until the top of the knob pops through the slot. A click indicates that the strap is
locked into place.
STARTING UP THE BIKE CONSOLE
When a user begins pedaling on the Lifecycle exercise bike, the unit’s Auto-Start feature powers up the console, causing the
console display to light up and the MESSAGE CENTER to flash a prompt: “SELECT WORKOUT USING ARROW KEYS OR
PRESS QUICK START”. If the user does not make a selection in 20 seconds, the console automatically starts a MANUAL
workout. For information on setting up a workout, see Section 4.2, titled Using the Workouts. If the user stops pedaling for
more than 15 seconds, the console shuts down. Alternately, the user may press the START key to power up the console.
USING THE POWER ASSIST OPTION
The Lifecycle exercise bike’s optional Power Assist feature makes it possible for the console to be powered by an external
electrical source, eliminating the need to pedal at a minimum speed to supply constant power to the console. With this option, users who wish to ride the bike for rehabilitative exercise may pedal at a rate below the minimum without losing console power.
Enabling the Power Assist option requires an optional kit. To order the kit, contact Life Fitness Customer Service. See
page one for contact information.
When the kit is installed, the connector plugs into the bike at the front of the frame, near the base.

SERVICE ACCESS PORT
The two interchangeable type RJ45 networking ports (A) are located on the back of the display console and are enclosed

CONSOLE OVERLAY DESCRIPTIONS
A. WORKOUT PROFILE window: This window displays shapes, made of columns of lights, that represent the levels of
intensity in a workout-in-progress. The height of the first column on the left side of the window is proportional to the
current level of intensity.
During a FAT BURN, CARDIO, HEART RATE HILL, HEART RATE INTERVAL, or EXTREME HEART RATE workout, which requires the use of a Polar® telemetry heart rate chest strap or the Lifepulse system sensors, the WORKOUT PROFILE window displays a flashing heart shape to request the user’s heart rate signal. If the console does not
detect a signal, the MESSAGE CENTER displays the prompt “NEED HEART RATE - PLACE HANDS ON SENSORS
OR USE TELEMETRY STRAP". If the console does not receive the signal within three minutes, the workout automatically is converted to a MANUAL program.
B. MESSAGE CENTER: This window displays step-by-step instructions for setting up a workout. During a workout, it displays statistics about the progress of the workout:
•
Level: the programmed intensity level. It is displayed continuously unless the heart rate is being measured, in
which case, Heart Rate is displayed.
•
Heart Rate: the detected heart rate if the user is wearing the chest strap or grasping the Lifepulse system sensors. If the heart rate is not being measured during a workout, then Level is displayed instead.
•
Distance: the total distance traveled in miles (or kilometers if enabled).
•
RPM (Revolutions per Minute): the pedaling speed or rate.
•
Calories: the number of calories burned since beginning the workout, alternates with Time.
•
Time: the time elapsed since the beginning of the workout; alternates with Calories.
If configured to do so, the MESSAGE CENTER displays other values each time the intensity level changes during the
workout:
•
Calories per Hour: the rate of calories burned per hour.
OR
•
Watts: effort level in Watts. The Watt is a unit of power output or the expression of the mechanical rate of work.
•
METs: effort level in METs. The MET is an expression of the rate of work for the human body at rest, or a metabolic equivalent; one MET is approximately equal to the metabolism of a person at rest.
C. DISPLAY LOCK: During a workout, the MESSAGE CENTER alternately displays TIME and CALORIES. Pressing the
DISPLAY LOCK key when the MESSAGE CENTER displays one of these statistics forces the MESSAGE CENTER to

HEART RATE ZONE TRAINING®
WHY HEART RATE ZONE TRAINING® EXERCISE?
Research shows that maintaining a specific heart rate while exercising is the optimal way to monitor the intensity of a
workout and to achieve maximum results. That is the idea behind the Life Fitness Heart Rate Zone Training® approach to
exercise.
Zone Training identifies an exerciser's ideal heart rate range, or zone, for burning fat or increasing cardiovascular fitness.
The zone is a percentage of the theoretical maximum (HRmax), and its value depends on the workout. The maximal heart
rate formula is defined by the American College of Sports Medicine's "Guidelines for Exercise Testing and Prescription",
8th Edition, 2010. HRmax equals to 206.9 minus the total of 0.67 multiplied by a person’s age.
HR Max = 206.9 - (0.67 * age)
The Life Fitness Lifecycle exercise bike features exclusive workouts designed to take full advantage of the benefits of
Heart Rate Zone Training+ exercise:
• FAT BURN
• CARDIO
• HEART RATE HILLTM
• HEART RATE INTERVALTM
• EXTREME HEART RATETM
Each workout offers different benefits, as discussed in Section 4 The Workouts.
Note: Consulting a fitness trainer is recommended for defining specific fitness goals and designing a workout program.
To change the target heart rate during a workout use the ARROW keys. To switch between programs during a workout,
use the CHANGE WORKOUTS key.
The Heart Rate Zone Training® workout programs measure heart rate. Wear the optional Polar® telemetry heart rate
chest strap, or grip the LifepulseTM sensors, to enable the bike’s on-board computer to monitor the heart rate during a
workout. The computer automatically adjusts the resistance level to maintain the target heart rate based on the actual
heart rate.

HEART RATE MONITORING
THE LIFEPULSETM DIGITAL HEART RATE MONITORING SYSTEM
The patented Lifepulse system sensors are the built-in heart rate monitoring system on the Life Fitness Bike. For the most
accurate reading possible, during a workout:
•
Grasp two of the four sensors (A) firmly.
•
Hold each sensor at the vertical midpoint.
•
Keep hands steady and in place.
The console displays the heart rate within 10 to 40 seconds after the user grasps the sensors. The following factors may
affect a Lifepulse reading: incorrect hand placement on the sensors, upper body activity, lotion or dirt on hands, and excessive or insufficient pressure used when gripping the sensors.

THE OPTIONAL POLAR® TELEMETRY HEART RATE CHEST STRAP
The Lifecycle Bike is equipped with Polar® telemetry, a heart rate monitoring system in which electrodes, pressed against
the skin, transfer heart rate signals to the console. These electrodes are attached to a Polar telemetry heart rate chest
strap that the user wears during the workout. The Polar telemetry heart rate chest strap is optional. Contact Life Fitness
Customer Support Services to order.
See the diagram below for correct positioning of the Polar telemetry heart rate chest strap. The electrodes (A), which are
the two grooved surfaces on the underside of the strap, must remain wet to transmit accurately the electrical impulses of
the heart back to the receiver. Moisten the electrodes. Then, secure the Polar telemetry heart rate chest strap as high
under the chest muscles as possible. The strap should be snug, but comfortable enough to allow for normal breathing.
The transmitter strap delivers an optimal heart rate reading when the electrodes are in direct contact with bare skin. However, it functions properly through a thin layer of wet clothing.
If it becomes necessary to re-moisten the Polar telemetry heart rate chest strap electrodes, grasp the center of the strap,
pull it away from the chest to expose the two electrodes, and re-moisten them.
Note: If the Lifepulse system sensors are grasped while the chest strap is worn, and if the signals from the sensors are
valid, the on-board computer uses these sensor signals for calculating the heart rate instead of those transmitted by the
Polar telemetry heart rate chest strap.

4.2
USING THE WORKOUTS
Different Bike workouts require different setup steps. See the chart at the end of this section for a quick glance at the
steps for setting up any workout program. This section provides details on the steps themselves.
TO BEGIN A WORKOUT
Start pedaling and press START, or simply start pedaling to activate the console. The MESSAGE CENTER displays the
prompt: “SELECT WORKOUT USING ARROW KEYS OR PRESS QUICK START”. If it displays a different message,
press the CLEAR key twice rapidly.
SELECTING AND USING QUICK START
QUICK START is the fastest way to begin exercising and bypasses the steps of selecting a specific workout program. At
the MESSAGE CENTER prompt to select a workout, press the QUICK START key. The workout begins at an intensity
level that remains the same unless manually changed.
SELECTING A WORKOUT
For all workouts: When prompted to select a workout, use the ARROW KEYS or WORKOUTS PLUS key to scroll through
the workout names as they appear in the MESSAGE CENTER. When the desired workout appears, press ENTER.
For MY WORKOUTS, once a workout is configured and saved, no further setup steps are necessary. For more information, see Section 4.4, titled Using My Workouts Personal Programs.
ENTERING WEIGHT
When prompted by the MESSAGE CENTER to enter weight, use the ARROW keys to increase or decrease the displayed
weight to the correct value and press ENTER. The default weight is 150 pounds or 68 kilograms.
ENTERING AGE
When prompted by the MESSAGE CENTER to enter age, use the ARROW KEYS to increase or decrease the displayed
age to the correct value and press ENTER.
Life Fitness Bike workout programs that set a target heart rate zone first calculate the user’s theoretical maximum heart
rate. The HRmax equals 206.9 minus the total of 0.67 multiplied by a person’s age. The programs then calculate the target zone as a percentage of the theoretical maximum.
ENTERING TIME
When prompted by the MESSAGE CENTER to enter a time, use the ARROW keys to increase or decrease the displayed
time to the desired value and press ENTER.
20
SELECTING AND ADJUSTING THE INTENSITY LEVEL
When prompted by the MESSAGE CENTER, use the ARROW keys to increase or decrease the displayed intensity level
or target heart rate to the desired value and press ENTER. Adjust the level as needed or desired during the workout.
•
Intensity level: The Bike provides a selection of 20 intensity levels. The intensity level appears in the WORKOUT
PROFILE window as rows of lights arranged in columns. Selecting a low intensity level at first is recommended.
As physical conditioning improves, the levels can be increased.
•
Target heart rate: Programs that calculate a target heart rate base this number on the age of the user and the
type of workout. The user accepts or adjusts the rate when setting up the workout. During the workout itself, the
program reads the heart rate, which is transmitted via the heart rate chest strap or the Lifepulse system sensors;
it uses this data to adjust the resistance. Manually raising the rate increases the intensity of the cardiovascular exercise.
SELECTING A WORKOUT MODE
Two workout mode options on the Lifecycle exercise bike feature alternate ways to vary workouts.
•
Bike Mode: This workout mode simulates the experience of riding a real bicycle. The rate of calories burned and
total distance travelled increase automatically as the user increases the pedaling speed. This mode can be used
with all workouts, except for FAT BURN, CARDIO, HEART RATE HILL, HEART RATE INTERVAL, EXTREME
HEART RATE, WATTS, METS, FIT TEST, and AIR FORCE PRT. To select Bike mode, press the BIKE MODE
key.
•
Constant-Calories-Per-Hour Mode: This workout mode enables a user to maintain a consistent rate of calories
burned per hour. As the pedaling speed increases, the resistance level automatically decreases. As the pedaling
speed decreases, the resistance level automatically increases. This mode can be used with all workouts. To select it, press the CONSTANT CAL./HR. key.
If the user selects a FAT BURN, CARDIO, HEART RATE HILL, HEART RATE INTERVAL, EXTREME HEART RATE,
WATTS, METS, FIT TEST, or AIR FORCE PRT workout during the setup, the default mode is Constant-Calories-PerHour. For all other workouts, the default mode is Bike. The user may select or change a mode during a workout setup or
during a workout.
SWITCHING WORKOUTS “ON-THE-FLY”
It is possible, during a workout, to switch to another workout program. After a switch, the console retains all the progress
information about the workout since its beginning. To change workouts “on the fly,” simply press the CHANGE WORKOUT
key for the desired new workout. This feature is available for all workouts except for AROUND THE WORLD, KILIMANJARO, INTERVAL, CASCADES, SPEED TRAINING, FOOTHILLS, FIT TEST and AIR FORCE PRT workouts.
PAUSING WORKOUTS
To pause a workout, simply stop pedaling. To resume, resume pedaling and press the ENTER key when prompted TO
CONTINUE WORKOUT.
ENDING WORKOUTS EARLY
To end a workout before the pre-set duration expires, press CLEAR once. The MESSAGE CENTER then displays a workout
summary, which includes the distance travelled, the total calories burned, and other statistics. Press CLEAR a second time and
the MESSAGE CENTER displays “SELECT WORKOUT USING ARROW KEYS OR PRESS QUICK START” for a new workout.

WORKOUT DESCRIPTIONS
QUICK START
QUICK START is the fastest way to begin exercising and bypasses the steps of selecting a specific workout program. The
intensity level for the workout is set automatically and remains the same unless manually changed. To change the level,
use the ARROW keys to enter a higher or lower level number.
MANUAL
The MANUAL program sets an intensity level that does not change automatically. While the workout is in progress, raise or
lower the intensity level as desired using the ARROW keys.
RANDOM
The RANDOM program creates a terrain of hills and valleys that varies with each workout. More than one million different
patterns are possible.
FAT BURN
The FAT BURN workout is designed to maintain a user’s heart rate at 65% of the theoretical maximum (HRmax) for optimal results. Throughout the workout, the user wears a Polar telemetry heart rate chest strap or grasps the LifepulseTM
sensors. If the user is not wearing a Polar telemetry heart rate chest strap, the WORKOUT PROFILE WINDOW displays a
heart shape, and the MESSAGE CENTER displays a prompt to grasp the sensors. The console continuously monitors
and displays the heart rate, adjusting the intensity level of the Bike to reach and maintain the target. This system eliminates over-training and under-training, and it maximizes the aerobic benefits of exercise by using the body's fat stores for
fuel.
CARDIO
The CARDIO workout is virtually identical to FAT BURN, however the target heart rate is calculated at 80% of the theoretical maximum (HRmax). The higher target promotes cardiovascular improvement by placing a heavier workload on the
heart muscle.
SPORT TRAININGTM WORKOUT
This workout sets different hills, or resistance levels, throughout the course. Each hill matches a progressive degree
of difficulty. Hills last between 30 and 60 seconds, depending on the workout duration.
EZ RESISTANCE
In this workout, the gradual changes in resistance are extremely subtle, lowering perceived exertion. The changes in resistance also are independent of user’s pedaling speed. The cardiovascular workout is effective, efficient, and enjoyable at
the same time.
The workout consists of one hill. The user determines the height of the peak of this hill by selecting an intensity level during
the setup. The higher the level selected, the higher the intensity at the entry point, which is the beginning of the workout,
and the higher the intensity at the peak, which occurs after 75% of the workout is completed. After the peak is reached, the
resistance gradually returns to the same intensity level as that of the entry point. See the chart below.

HILL
The Life Fitness-patented HILL workout offers a variety of configurations for interval training. Intervals are periods of intense cardiovascular exercise separated by regular periods of lower-intensity exercise. The WORKOUT PROFILE window
represents these high and low intervals as columns of illuminated LEDs, which together have the appearance of hills and
valleys. The computerized interval training workout has been scientifically demonstrated to promote greater cardiorespiratory improvement than steady-pace training.
The HILL workout goes through four phases, each marked by different intensity levels. The WORKOUT PROFILE window
displays the progress of these phases. As noted in the descriptions below, the heart rate should be measured at two
stages in the workout to gauge its effectiveness. Wear the Polar telemetry heart rate chest strap or continuously grip the
LifepulseTM handles. The MESSAGE CENTER does not display a request for a heart rate measurement, as it does with
CARDIO, FAT BURN and the HEART RATE ZONE TRAINING programs.
1. Warm-up is a phase of low, gradually rising resistance, which brings the heart rate into the lower end of the target
zone and increases respiration and blood flow to working muscles.
2. Plateau increases the intensity slightly and keeps it steady, to bring the heart rate to the low end of the target zone.
Check the heart rate at the end of this phase.
3. Interval Training is a series of increasingly steeper hills alternating with valleys or stints of recovery. The heart rate
should rise to the high end of the target zone. Check the heart rate at the end of this phase.
4. Cool Down is a low-intensity phase that allows the body to begin removing lactic acid and other exercise by-products
which build up in muscles and contribute to soreness.
Each column, as seen in the WORKOUT PROFILE WINDOW and the chart above, represents one interval. The overall
duration of the workout determines the length of each interval. Each workout is made up of 20 intervals, so the duration of
each interval is equal to the duration of the entire workout divided by 20.
1 to 9 minutes: A workout with a duration of less than 10 minutes is insufficient for the HILL program to complete all four
phases adequately. The program therefore condenses a workout of this duration at various stages.
10 to 19 minutes: The interval durations initially are set at 30 seconds for a 10-minute workout. For every minute over 10,
each interval increases by three seconds. A 15-minute workout consists of 20 intervals at 45 seconds each.
20 to 99 minutes: All intervals last 60 seconds. If the user adds minutes to the pre-set duration while the workout is in
progress, the program adds hills and valleys that are identical to the first eight intervals of the Interval Training phase. This
pattern repeats until the workout is completed.
24
HEART RATE HILLTM
This program combines the standard HILL workout profile with the concept of Heart Rate Zone Training. The default target heart rate is calculated as 80% of the theoretical maximum (HRmax), but the user can adjust the target rate during the
workout setup. All hills and valleys are percentages of HRmax. The workout consists of three hills that target three heart
rate goals:
•
The first hill brings the heart rate to 70% of HRmax.
•
The second hill increases the rate to 75% of HRmax.
•
The third hill matches the Target Heart Rate bringing the heart rate to 80% of HRmax.
The valley is always defined as 65% of HRmax.
After a standard three-minute warm-up, the workout progresses toward the first hill and heart rate goal. Once the user
reaches 70% of HRmax, the hill continues for one minute. When the minute expires, the level decreases into a valley.
Once the user's heart rate falls to 65% of HRmax, the valley continues for one minute, then the next hill begins with its
corresponding heart rate goal. After the user completes the third hill/valley pair, the program returns to the first hill and repeats the cycle as long as the duration allows. At the end of the duration, the workout goes into a cool down phase. If the
heart rate goes above the theoretical maximum for more than 45 seconds, the exercise bike automatically goes into
pause mode. The program does not proceed to a new heart rate goal until the user reaches the current goal.

This program also combines the standard HILL workout profile with the concept of Heart Rate Zone Training. The default
target heart rate is calculated as 80% of the theoretical maximum (HRmax), but the user can adjust the target rate during
the workout setup. The workout alternates between a hill, which brings the heart rate up to the target rate of 80% of
HRmax, and a valley which brings the heart rate down to 65% of HRmax. After a standard three-minute warm-up, the
workout progresses toward the first hill and heart rate goal. Once the goal is reached, the hill continues for three minutes,
then the level decreases into a valley. Once the 65% of HRmax goal is reached, the valley continues for three minutes,
after which the next hill begins. The user's fitness level determines the number of hills and valleys encountered within the
duration. At the end of the duration, the workout goes into a cool down phase. If the heart rate goes above the theoretical
maximum for more then 45 seconds, the exercise bike automatically goes into pause mode. The program does not proceed to a new heart rate goal until the user reaches the current goal.

EXTREME HEART RATETM
This intense, varied workout is designed to help more experienced users to break through fitness improvement plateaus.
The workout alternates between two target heart rates as quickly as possible. The effect is similar to that of running
sprints. The user must wear a Polar telemetry heart rate chest strap or grip the LifepulseTM sensors throughout the workout.
When setting up the workout, the user enters a target heart rate. After a standard three-minute warm-up, the intensity increases, until the user reaches the target heart rate goal of 85% of the theoretical maximum (HRmax). That target rate is
maintained for a stabilizing period. Then, the intensity decreases. When the heart rate falls to the 65% of HRmax goal, it
is maintained there for a stabilizing period. The program repeats the alternating intensity levels, continuing this pattern
throughout the duration. The program does not proceed to a new heart rate goal until the user reaches the current goal.
27
WATTS
This workout targets a rate of effort equal to a certain number of Watts. A Watt is a unit of power that measures the
amount of mechanical work required to operate a device, such as a Lifecycle exercise bike. It is roughly equal to .25 calories per hour. The workout program automatically alters the intensity level to maintain the appropriate rate of effort. By default, this workout is turned off. For information on making it available, see Section 5, titled System Menu.
METS
This workout targets a rate of effort equal to a certain number of METs. A MET is a unit of measurement used to express the
metabolic rate of work (oxygen consumption per unit of body weight) required to perform a task. One MET is approximately
equal to a person’s metabolism when seated and relaxed. By default, this workout is turned off. For information on making it
available, see Section 5, titled Optional Settings.
AEROBICS TRAINER
In this workout, the MESSAGE CENTER continuously prompts the user to switch between a high pedaling speed and a
low pedaling speed. These speed intervals alternate in a pattern that promotes a “build-up” in the intensity of the workout,
followed by a “build-down” in intensity.
The workout consists of 32 intervals, which are divided into groups of four. In the first group, the user encounters one fast
interval followed by three slow intervals. The second group features two fast intervals followed by two slow intervals. The
third group features three fast intervals followed by one slow interval. The fourth group, which is the most intense point of
the workout, features four fast intervals. Afterward, the workout decreases in intensity, concluding with a group of four,
consecutive, slow intervals. See the chart below:

FIT TEST
The Life Fitness Fit Test program is another exclusive feature of this product. The Fit Test workout estimates cardiovascular fitness and can be used to monitor improvements in endurance every four to six weeks. The user must grasp the
Lifepulse hand sensors when prompted or wear a heart rate chest strap, as the test score calculation is based on a heart
rate reading. The workout duration will be five minutes at the chosen resistance level. Immediately afterward, the console
will take the user's heart rate reading, calculate a fitness score, and display the score in the MESSAGE CENTER.
The Fit Test is considered to be a submax VO2 (volume of oxygen) test. It gauges how well the heart supplies oxygenated
blood to the exercising muscles, and how efficiently those muscles receive oxygen from the blood. Physicians and exercise physiologists generally regard this test as a good measure of aerobic capacity. Please note that the estimated VO2
max scores achieved will be 10 percent to 15 percent lower on stationary exercise bikes than those achieved on other Life
Fitness cardiovascular equipment. Stationary cycling has a higher rate of isolated muscle fatigue of the quadriceps when
compared to walking/running on a treadmill, climbing on a stairclimber, or utilizing a bike. This higher rate of fatigue corresponds to lower levels of estimated VO2 max scores.
To set up the Fit Test:
•
Begin pedaling.
•
Press the WORKOUTS PLUS button repeatedly until the FIT TEST option appears in the message center. Press
ENTER to select the FIT TEST option.
•
The message center will prompt for a user weight (ENTER WEIGHT). Use the ARROW keys to input your weight.
Press ENTER to accept the weight.
•
The message center will next prompt for a user age (ENTER AGE). Use the ARROW keys to input your age.
Press ENTER to accept the age.
•
The message center will next prompt for a user gender (SELECT GENDER). Using the ARROW keys, select a
gender. Press ENTER to accept the gender selection.
•
The message center will next prompt for a workout level (ENTER LEVEL). Consult the following recommended fit
test level chart for an appropriate effort level based on your age, gender and activity level. Use the UP/DOWN
ARROW KEYS to enter the corresponding level.
After the five-minute FIT TEST is completed, a FIT TEST score will be displayed.

Fit Test Level
Suggested exertion levels should be used as a guideline for setting up the Fit Test program. The goal is to elevate the
user's heart rate to a level that is between 60%-85% of their theoretical maximum heart rate.
Within each suggested range, these additional guidelines can be used:
Lower Half of Range
Upper Half of Range
higher age
lower age
lower weight
higher weight*
shorter
taller
* In cases of excessive weight, use lower half of range
The computer will not accept:
•
heart rates less than 52 or greater than 200 beats per minute
•
body weights less than 75 pounds (34 kg) or greater than 400 pounds (181 kg)
•
ages below 10 or over 99 years
•
data input that exceeds human potential
29
If you make an error when entering any Fit Test data, you can correct it by pressing CLEAR, inputting the correct informa-
tion and pressing ENTER.
It is important for you to take the Fit Test under similar circumstances each time. Your heart rate is dependent on many
factors, including:
•
amount of sleep the previous night (at least seven hours is recommended)
•
time of day
•
time you last ate (two to four hours after the last meal is recommended)
•
time since you last drank a liquid containing caffeine or alcohol, or smoked a cigarette (at least four hours is recommended)
•
time since you last exercised (at least six hours is recommended)
For the most accurate Fit Test results, you should perform the Fit Test on three consecutive days and average the three
scores.
Note: To receive a proper Fit Test score, the work done must be within a training heart rate zone that is 60% to 85% of the
theoretical maximum heart rate (HRmax). This program requires a constant exertion for accuracy, so it will not be allowed
to resume if paused. This program will control level. Manual adjustment of level is not permitted.

week"). Using the ARROW keys, select 'YES' or 'NO'. Press ENTER to accept the selection.
The Air Force PRT begins after the user selects their Fitness Level and presses ENTER. During the PRT the user must
maintain 50-80 RPM. If the user pedals outside this range, a warning message is displayed. If the user continues to pedal
outside this range for more than 10 seconds, the test is terminated. If the user's heart rate exceeds 85% of their theoretical maximum heart rate, the test is also terminated. The Air Force PRT requires a user's heart rate throughout the test.
Heart rate is recorded every minute, and if it is not detected, the test will terminate. The PRT starts with a 2 minute warmup. After this warm-up, an initial wattage setting is determined from the user's input data. The PRT then monitors a user's
heart rate and determines if more resistance is needed. After 6 minutes at a constant wattage, the exercise bike will try to
calculate a score.
