SETUP
Read the entire Operation Manual before setting up the Bally exercise bike.
WHERE
TO
PLACE
THE
BALLY® 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 four feet, or 120 centimeters, between the bike and
other objects or surfaces on either side.
HOW
TO
STABILIZE
THE
BALLY EXERCISE BIKE
After placing the bike in position, check the unit's stability by attempting to rock it in all directions. 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
17mm 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
Proper seat positioning minimizes unecessary leg muscle fatigue. 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
furthest point in its rotation, relative to the body. The user should be able to pedal without locking the knees or shifting in
the seat.
Adjusting the seat on the upright bike: The bike post features a vertical locking pin seat adjustment system, which
makes it easy and safe to change the height of the seat quickly.
To raise the seat, first get off the bike. Hold the seat, turn the spring-loaded knob on the right of the seat post
once counter-clockwise to loosen it, and pull out the knob to unlock the post from its present position. Pull the seat
upward to the desired height, and release the knob to let it lock into place. Turn the knob once clockwise to tighten it.
Test and re-adjust the seat height as necessary.
To lower the seat, first get off the bike. Hold the seat, turn the spring-loaded knob on the right of the seat post
once counterclockwise to loosen it, and pull out the knob to unlock the post from its present position. Let the seat slide
down to the desired height, and release the knob to let it lock into place. Turn the knob once clockwise to tighten it. 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.
10
Adjusting the seat on the recumbent bike: Lift the spring-loaded adjusting handle located on the right side of the seat.
Slide the seat forward or backward as necessary to the proper position and release the pin to complete engagement.
Gently rock the seat forward and backward to ensure that it is locked into place. Check the seat distance again and readjust it if necessary.
Note: If the seat carriage rocks excessively, use a wrench to loosen the jam nut (A) on either side of the seat carriage.
With another wrench, tighten the adjustment roller on the inside of the carriage until it is snug, but do not over-tighten it.
Then, while holding the roller in place, tighten the lock nut. Repeat the procedure for the other side of the seat carriage.
CAUTION: Do not attempt to adjust the seat while pedaling the bike. Doing so, or failing to insert the
seat pin completely may result in an uncomfortable workout or cause injury.
HOW
TO
ADJUST
THE
PEDAL STRAPS
The bike pedal safety 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,
the user should test and adjust the tightness of the straps.
The straps can be adjusted to fit a variety of shoe sizes. Each strap is held in place by a spring-loaded clip that is connected to the outer edge of each pedal. To tighten a strap, simply pull the loose end of the strap down. It automatically
locks into place with each pull. To loosen a strap, press down on the top of the clip and pull the strap up. Release the clip
to lock the strap into place. Test the adjustment, and change if necessary.
STARTING UP THE BIKE
To power up the Bally exercise bike, simply start pedaling. Once the unit’s power is on, the console display lights up, making
it possible to select a workout or to begin a QUICK START workout using. See Section 4.2, titled the Using the Workouts,

3.1
HEART RATE ZONE TRAINING EXERCISE
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 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 values within the zone depend on the workout.
NOTE: Consulting a fitness trainer is recommended for defining specific fitness goals and designing a workout program.
The exercise bike features two workouts that are designed to take full advantage of the benefits of heart rate zone training exercise: FAT BURNER and CARDIO. For detailed information about these workouts, see Section 4, titled The
Workouts. These workouts become enabled if an optional telemetry kit is purchased and installed. See the
following section, titled Heart Rate Monitoring, for more information.
During one of these workouts, wear the optional telemetry heart rate chest strap to enable the exercise bike’s on-board computer to monitor the heart rate. The computer automatically adjusts the resistance level to maintain the target heart rate*
based on the actual heart rate. To change the target heart rate during a workout, use the
ARROW keys.
* Target Heart Rate (THR) is a percentage of the theoretical maximum. For example, a 40-year-old user's THR for the CARDIO workout is 144. This workout
targets 80 percent of the maximum, so the equation would be (220-40)*.80=144. A 20-year-old user’s THR is 160, so the equation would be
(220-20)*.80=160.
15
3.2
HEART RATE MONITORING
THE TELEMETRY HEART RATE CHEST STRAP (OPTIONAL)
The Bally exercise bike can be equipped with telemetry, a heart rate monitoring system in which electrodes, pressed
against the skin, transfer heart rate signals to the exercise bike console. These electrodes are attached to a heart rate
chest strap that the user wears during the workout. Telemetry and the chest strap are optional. To order them, contact
Customer support. See section 6.4, titled How to Obtain Product Service.
See the diagram below for correct positioning of the 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 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 skin. However,
it also functions properly through a thin layer of wet clothing.
If it becomes necessary to re-moisten the chest strap electrodes, grasp the center of the strap, pull it away from the
chest to expose the two electrodes, and moisten them.

THE WORKOUTS
WORKOUT OVERVIEWS
This section lists the Lifecycle exercise bike’s pre-programmed workouts. For more detailed information, see Section 4.2,
titled Using the Workouts.
QUICK START is the fastest way to begin exercising, and it bypasses the steps involved in selecting a specific workout
program. After the QUICK START key is pressed, a constant-level workout begins. The intensity level does not change
automatically.
HILL is an interval-training workout combining “hills” and “valleys” of different intensity levels, which is proven to provide
effective, time-efficient cardiovascular results.
RANDOM is an interval training workout of constantly changing intensity levels that occur in no regular pattern or progression.
MANUAL is a workout in which the intensity level does not change automatically.
OUTDOOR TRAINING simulates an outdoor cycling terrain by setting different hills, or intensity levels, throughout the
course.
GRADUAL HILL features a gradual, subtle increase in resistance, lowering perceived exertion. A peak in resistance is
followed by an equally subtle decrease in resistance.
FAT BURNER (optional) is a low-intensity workout for burning the body’s fat reserves. The user must wear a telemetry
heart rate chest strap. The workout program automaticaly adjusts the intensity level, based on the actual heart rate, to
maintain the rate at 65 percent of the theoretical maximum†.
CARDIO (optional) is a higher intensity workout for more fit users, emphasizing cardiovascular benefits and maximum fat burning. The user must wear a telemetry heart rate chest strap. The workout program automatically adjusts the intensity level,
based on the actual heart rate, to maintain the rate at 80 percent of the theoretical maximum.

PAUSING WORKOUTS
To pause a workout, press the CLEAR/PAUSE key. Pedalling must not cease. PAUSE will eliminate resistance during
the pause duration. To continue the workout, press the ENTER key.
INITIATING AN EARLY COOL-DOWN
Workouts end automatically in a Cool Down mode, which lowers the intensity level. Press the COOL DOWN key at any
desired point during a workout to go immediately into Cool Down mode. In this phase of a workout the body begins to remove
lactic acid and other accumulated by-products of exercise, which build up in muscles during a workout and contribute to
muscle soreness. The console automatically adjusts each workout’s Cool Down level according to the individual user’s
performance. Each additional time the user presses the COOL DOWN key, the resistance level shortens by half. It is possible
to change the Cool Down duration by pressing the TIME ARROW keys.
ENDING WORKOUTS EARLY
To end a workout before the pre-set duration expires, press CLEAR/PAUSE key three times. The MESSAGE CENTER displays “SELECT WORKOUT PROFILE OR PRESS QUICK START” for a new workout.
4.3
WORKOUT DESCRIPTIONS
QUICK START
QUICK START is the fastest way to begin exercising, and it bypasses the steps of selecting a specific workout. The
intensity level for the workout is set automatically and remains the same unless manually changed. To change the level
press the UP or DOWN ARROW keys. If the CALORIES PER HOUR display is enabled, the MESSAGE CENTER displays ENTER WEIGHT, which is required to calculate this ratio. Using the ARROW KEYS, increase or decrease the displayed weight to the correct value.
HILL
The HILL workout features intervals of intense aerobic activity separated by intervals of lower-intensity. Interval training
has been scientifically demonstrated to yield greater cardiorespiratory improvement than steady-pace training.
During the Hill workout the difficulty level of intervals increases gradually, as the profile diagram below illustrates.
†
Defined by the American College of Sports Medicine's "Guidelines for Exercise Testing and Prescription" as equal to 220 minus an individual’s age.
* Target Heart Rate (THR) is a percentage of the theoretical maximum. For example, a 40-year-old user's THR for the CARDIO workout is 144. This workout
targets 80 percent of the maximum, so the equation would be (220-40)*.80=144. A 20-year-old user’s THR is 160, so the equation would be
(220-20)*.80=160.
19
Each workout session includes the following phases:
1
Warm-up gradually brings the heart rate into the lower portion of the target heart rate zone, increasing respiration
and blood flow to working muscles.
2
Plateau increases heart rate to bring it is within the target zone. To check the heart rate grasp the handpulse sensors or wear the telemetry heart rate chest strap.
3
Interval Training is a series of hills and valleys. During this portion of the workout, the user is confronted with a
series of successively steeper hills, each separated from the next by a valley or recovery period. Again, check the
heart rate to ensure that it has remained within the target zone.
4
Cool-down allows the body to begin removing accumulated by-products of exercise, such as lactic acid, which build
up in muscles during a workout and contribute to muscle soreness.
Effort and recovery periods are simulated on the display console by columns of red lights in the workout Profile window.
Each column represents one interval and 20 intervals make up a workout. The columns move from right to left during the
workout. The higher the column, the higher the resistance. The intervals are all of equal length, and interval duration
depends on the overall duration of the workout.
1 to 9 minutes: Because workouts with durations of less than 10 minutes are insufficient for the HILL workout to
complete all four phases adequately, the profile is condensed at various stages.
10 to 19 minutes: The interval durations are initially set at 30 seconds for a 10-minute workout. For every additional
minute of workout duration intervals lengthen by three seconds. Thus, a 15-minute HILL workout features 20 intervals of
45 seconds each.
20 to 99 minutes: All intervals last 60 seconds. As minutes are added, additional hills and valleys are presented beyond
the initial four of the interval training phase. The additional hills and valleys will follow the form of the first four, dropping
back down to the level of the very first hill encountered and progressing in height every two minutes until the highest hill
is reached again. This process repeats until the end of the duration.
RANDOM
The RANDOM workout creates a terrain of hills and valleys that varies with each workout. More than one million different
patterns are possible.
MANUAL
The MANUAL workout sets an intensity level that does not change automatically. While the workout is in progress, increase
or lower the intensity level as desired, using the arrow keys.
OUTDOOR TRAININGTM WORKOUT
OUTDOOR TRAINING is based on a RANDOM workout profile with smoother transitions between hills and valleys. This
workout simulates conditions of an outdoor cycling terrain.
During the workout setup, the chosen difficulty level corresponds to the baseline, or flat ground, for the workout. Any
difficulty level above this baseline simulates pedaling uphill. Any difficulty level below the baseline simulates pedaling
downhill.
20
GRADUAL HILL
In this workout, the gradual changes in resistance are extremely subtle, lowering perceived exertion. The changes in
resistance also are independent of the 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 percent 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.
GRADUAL HILL Workout Profile

FAT BURNER (OPTIONAL)
The FAT BURNER workout is designed to maintain a user’s heart rate at 65 percent of the theoretical maximum rate† for optimal results. Throughout the workout, the user wears a telemetry heart rate chest strap. The console continuously monitors
and displays the heart rate, adjusting the intensity level of the exercise bike to reach and maintain the target*. This system
eliminates over- and under-training, and it maximizes the aerobic benefits of exercise by using the body's fat stores for fuel.
CARDIO (OPTIONAL)
The CARDIO workout is virtually identical to FAT BURNER; however the target heart rate is calculated at 80 percent of
the theoretical maximum†. The higher target promotes cardiovascular improvement by placing a heavier workload on the
heart muscle. hroughout the workout, the user wears a telemetry heart rate chest strap.
