Getting Started
The P30 console offers administrators the ability to set
default values that meet their specific needs. These settings
include items like language, units of measure, and setting a
maximum allowed workout time for each piece of equipment.
Activating the Console for Self-Powered
Equipment
Precor equipment is either self-powered or externally
powered using an optional power adapter. Self-powered
equipment requires the user exercise to initialize the console.
This section provides more detail about powering equipment.
Activating the Console for Self-Powered Equipment
On self-powered equipment, when a user starts exercising,
the console initializes and displays the Welcome banner. A
minimum rate of motion must be maintained for the
Welcome banner to appear. The words PEDAL FASTER (or
the equivalent message depending on the equipment type)
appear in the display when the rate of motion drops below the
minimum requirements.
The equipment saves its battery charge by moving into a
shutdown mode. If the user does not maintain the minimum
rate of motion, a 30-second shutdown process begins.
In this mode, the console displays a countdown indicator and
ignores all keypresses. If no movement is detected or the rate
of motion remains below the minimum, the indicator changes
as the countdown continues.
Note: The user can resume exercising before the countdown
period elapses and the workout will continue from the point at
which it was paused.
16
Operating and Maintaining the P30 Console
Optional Use of the Power Adapter
An optional AC power adapter provides sustained power to
the equipment. This adapter allows you to change settings
without having to pedal the equipment. To purchase the
power adapter, contact your dealer.
If you purchase the optional power adapter, you must also
purchase the internal cable kit. The kit supplies the cable,
bracket, and fasteners that connect the power adapter to the
lower electronics board.
CAUTION: The internal cable kit must be installed by authorized
service personnel. Do not attempt installation on your own as you
could void the Precor Limited Warranty. For more information,
refer to Obtaining Service.
Important: If this equipment includes a P80 console, the optional
power adapter and the internal cable kit must still be installed to
provide continuous power to the base unit and support its internal
battery.
Once the internal cable kit is installed, you can plug the
optional power adapter into the equipment. Plug the opposite
end into the appropriate power source for your equipment
(120 V or 240 V). Review the safety instructions found at the
beginning of this manual before using the power adapter.
CAUTION: When the optional power adapter is in use, make sure
that the power supply cord does not create a safety hazard. Keep
it out of the way of traffic and moving parts. If the power supply
cord or power conversion module is damaged, it must be replaced.
The control console functions differently when the power
adapter is connected. Because the power adapter provides a
constant source of power, a user can pause for brief periods
without initiating shutdown procedures. When the pause time
limit expires and the user has not resumed exercising, the
console returns to the Welcome screen. The default pause
time is 30 seconds for all fitness equipment. Refer to the
manual for your control console for instructions on setting or
changing the pause time limit.

Introducing Users to the P30
Console
CAUTION: Before beginning any fitness program, see your
physician for a thorough physical examination. Seek advice from
your physician to learn the target heart rate appropriate for your
fitness level.
The P30 console offers an easy-to-follow display and multiple
programs to help people meet their exercise needs.
Important: Please review the following sections in this guide with
your users before allowing them to use the fitness equipment:

Using the Touch Heart Rate Feature
Note: Touch heart rate performance may vary based on your
physiology, fitness level, age, and other factors. You may
experience an erratic readout if your hands are dry, dirty, or
oily, or if the skin on your palms is especially thick. Wearing
hand lotion can also cause an erratic readout. In addition,
make sure that the sensors are clean to ensure proper contact
can be maintained.
To use the touch heart rate feature, place the palm of your
hands directly on the metal heart rate sensors on the
equipment’s handlebars. To ensure an accurate heart rate
readout, make sure you follow these tips:





Both hands must grip the sensors for your heart rate to
register.
It takes a number of consecutive heartbeats (15-20
seconds) for your heart rate to register.
When gripping the sensors, do not grip tightly. Keep a
loose, cupping hold. Holding the grips tightly can affect
the reading.
As you work out, your perspiration will help transmit your
heart rate signal. If you have difficulty using the handheld
grips to determine your heart rate, try the sensors again
later in the workout to see if you can obtain a heart rate
signal.
If the touch heart rate feature does not work for you,
Precor recommends that you use a chest transmitter
strap.
Introducing Users to the P30 Console
Figure 5: Heart rate target zones
CAUTION: Your heart rate should never exceed 85% of your
maximum aerobic heart rate. You can calculate your maximum
heart rate using the following formula:
Maximum heart rate = 207 – (your age × 0.67)

Operating and Maintaining the P30 Console
Using a Chest Strap Transmitter
WARNING Signals used by the chest strap transmitter (or
heart rate strap) may interfere with
pacemakers or other implanted devices.
Consult your physician and the manufacturers
of your chest strap transmitter and implanted
device before using a chest strap transmitter.
Wearing a chest strap transmitter during your workout
provides steady heart rate information. For the equipment to
detect your heart rate, you must grip the touch heart rate
sensors or wear a chest strap transmitter while exercising. In
the presence of both touch and wireless data, the touch data
takes precedence and will display.
Note: To receive an accurate reading, the strap needs to be in
direct contact with the skin on the lower sternum (just below
the bust line for women).
To use a chest strap transmitter:
1. Carefully dampen the back of the strap with tap water.
Important: Do not use deionized water. It does not have the
proper minerals and salts to conduct electrical impulses.
2. Adjust the strap and fasten it around your chest. The
strap should feel snug, not restrictive.
3. Make sure that the chest strap is right-side-up, lies
horizontally across, and is centered in the middle of your
chest.
4. Test the chest strap placement by checking the heart rate
function on the equipment. If a heart rate is registering,
your chest strap placement is correct. If the equipment
does not register a heart rate, readjust the strap and
recheck the heart rate function.

Pausing and Resuming an Exercise Session
When you interrupt a workout, the equipment responds in
one of two ways, depending on how it is powered.
Paused (Externally Powered Equipment)
When the session is paused, the belt speed is slowly reduced
to zero, or the resistance is slowly reduced to the minimum.
The lift motor is turned off leaving the incline or crossramp at
its current position. Data entry is canceled.
When you press Pause on all non-treadmill equipment, it
displays the summary screen with your workout metrics.
After displaying the summary, it returns to the Welcome
screen.
Pending Shutdown (Self-Powered Equipment)
On self-powered machines, the paused state is equivalent to
the pending shutdown state. When you stop working out, the
equipment begins a 30 second countdown.
The accumulated metrics (e.g., time, strides, distance,
calories) hold their current values and do not change. Data
entry may not be started.
To restart the program, begin working out again. The
resistance is reset to what it was when the program was
paused.
If the equipment remains inactive for more than 30 seconds,
the power is lost and the equipment bypasses the workout
summary screen.
47
Starting a Workout
Ending a Session
Cooling down is an important aspect of your workout because
it helps reduce muscle stiffness and soreness by transporting
excess lactic acid out of the working muscles. In addition, a
three to five minute cool down allows your heart rate to
return to its normal, resting state.
At the end of your workout, a Summary screen displays your
average heart rate during your workout and your accumulated
workout metrics.
If you performed a fitness test exercise program, an initial
message presents a fitness score.
The next two messages display the user’s average and
maximum heart rate during the session. These messages are
only displayed if heart rate data was acquired during the
session, i.e., a valid heart rate number was displayed at least
once during the session.
The summary state times out in two minutes, causing a return
to the Welcome banner. If the machine is in a CSAFE Finished
state then the summary state must last for at least the CSAFE
timeout value, typically 10 seconds or less. If it has not lasted
that long, then before returning to the Welcome banner, the
word RESETTING appears until the CSAFE finished state
ends.

Workouts
Your fitness equipment includes a wide selection of workouts
that are carefully designed to make sure you get the best
results out of every workout.
The human body is extremely efficient. If it makes the same
motion regularly over many days or weeks, it learns to make
that motion with less and less effort. This process, called
muscle adaptation, has one drawback—the longer you stick to
the same workout, the less good that workout does you.
To prevent muscle adaptation from setting in as you work out,
try different kinds of workouts on different days. By keeping
your muscles guessing, you’ll keep your energy use up,
promoting faster weight loss and better conditioning.

The following listing describes these workouts.
Weight Loss Key
Pressing the Weight Loss key scrolls through the workouts
that are designed to encourage weight loss and aerobic
conditioning.
Weight Loss
The American College of Sports Medicine® recommends that
adults get at least 30–60 minutes of moderately intense
exercise five days a week. The Weight Loss workout provides
a structured and time-based aerobic challenge designed to
help you reverse or prevent weight gain.
The total time for this workout is fixed at 28 minutes. It
consists of alternating four-minute work and rest intervals.
During the work intervals, you can change the resistance at
any time.
Training tip: For best results, wear a heart rate monitor and
maintain a target heart rate that is between 50% and 70% of
your maximum heart rate.
Note: This program is called Fat Burner on climbers.
52
Operating and Maintaining the P30 Console
Aerobic Workouts
Aerobic workouts are designed to keep your oxygen
consumption as high as possible, which improves your fitness
over time. Benefits of aerobic conditioning include greater
heart and lung capacity, stress management, and an overall
sense of vitality.
Training tip: For the most effective cardiovascular workout,
avoid holding on to the handrails.
Heart Rate Key
Pressing the Heart Rate key repeatedly scrolls through the
heart rate controlled (HRC) workouts available on the
equipment. To use these workouts, you must either wear a
chest strap sensor (recommended) or maintain contact with
the handheld sensor grips throughout your workout.
Note: You cannot switch to these workouts during an
exercise session.
Heart Rate / Basic HRC
This workout monitors your heart rate to guide you through a
moderate intensity program that is optimal for aerobic
conditioning.
During the workout, your target heart rate is based on the
following calculation:
Target heart rate = 70% × (207 – (0.67 × your age))
The equipment adjusts intensity settings to maintain your
target heart rate while you work out.
When a heart rate signal is not received, the metrics displays
remain blank. If this happens, recheck your hand grip on the
handheld sensors or the placement of your chest strap.
Training tip: This program offers a coaching benefit for new
and returning users who are learning how to maintain a
moderate, steady exertion level throughout their workouts.
53
Starting a Workout
Custom Weight Loss HRC
This workout is similar to the Basic HRC workout. However, at
the beginning of the Custom Weight Loss HRC workout, the
equipment asks you to enter the active and recovery heart
rates you want to maintain. As the workout progresses, the
equipment adjusts incline levels to keep your heart rate
between the active and recovery boundaries you have
specified. You can adjust your walking or running speed at
any time.
Note: This workout is 28 minutes long, and its duration
cannot be adjusted. It is also available through the Weight
Loss key.
Training tip: By selecting your own heart rate range for your
unique training goals, you can challenge your fitness within an
effective and safe workout zone.
Weight Loss HRC
In this workout, the speed and incline settings adjust
automatically to encourage weight loss and improve
endurance. You can adjust the duration of this workout
between 15 minutes and the maximum workout duration
allowed by the fitness facility.
Note: This workout is also available through the Weight Loss
key.
Training tip: Participating in a focused workout for at least 15
minutes per day can increase your metabolism and boost
your endurance.

Track
This workout is largely identical to the Manual workout; there
are no preset intensity levels, so you can adjust the levels as
you work out. However, in place of the normal intensity graph,
a diagram depicting an oval running track appears on the
display. A blinking LED shows where you are in your current
lap, and a counter in the center of the oval shows the number
of the lap you are currently completing. One lap is equal to
440 yards (400 meters).
Training tip: Press the OPTIONS key and use the SEGMENT
TIME REMAINING counter to display the amount of time
remaining in the present lap, based on your current speed.
5K
As its name implies, this workout simulates a five-kilometer
(3.1-mile) run or walk. The workout begins at a
preprogrammed incline, but you can change the incline or
speed at any time.
Training tip: If you want to reduce your total time for this
workout, start out with a benchmarking session to establish
your "race time." Repeat the 5K workout every month or two
to evaluate your progress.
55
Starting a Workout
Hill Climb
This workout simulates a walk, run, or ride up a long grade
and down a shorter one. It engages a wide range of muscle
groups by adjusting the resistance, CrossRamp, or both to
deliver a hill climbing experience. You can change these
settings at any time, and your changes will affect the intensity
of the rest of your workout.
Note: On the EFX, the console prompts you to pedal
backward during part of the workout.
Training tip: Incorporating hill climb workouts into your
regular cardio schedule will keep your workouts varied and
help build lower body muscle strength.
Cross Training Workouts
This workout delivers true training variety and muscular
engagement by adjusting the resistance and incline
continuously to simulate the dynamic terrain of an outdoor
run.
The CrossRamp setting is preprogrammed in each of these
workouts, but you can change it or the resistance setting at
any time. Your changes are applied to the levels for the
remainder of your workout, and the columns in the workout
profile show the changed CrossRamp levels.
Training tip: Advanced users can engage their core stabilizer
muscles more thoroughly by taking their hands off the
handlebars throughout the workout.
1-2 Interval
This workout is available through the Performance key on the
AMT only. It is the same 1-2 Interval workout that is available
through the Interval key on other equipment (refer to 1-1, 1-2,
and 1-3 Interval).
56
Operating and Maintaining the P30 Console
Watts Target
This workout holds the exerciser accountable for maintaining
a constant power output throughout the training session. The
bike will vary resistance as needed to keep the power level
constant as you progress through your workout. At the
beginning of the workout, the resistance level is set to 1, but it
increases until you are working out at a steady level of 50
watts. You can use the resistance control to adjust this target
in increments of 10 watts.
Note: You can set your target power level to any 10-watt
value between 30 watts and 400 watts.
Once you have reached this level, the resistance adjusts to
compensate for the speed at which you are pedaling—the
faster you pedal, the lower the resistance level falls.
Training tip: Set this program at a light power level the day
after an intense exercise bout to promote recovery and avoid
overtraining.
Steady Climb
The Steady Climb program slowly increases the step rate until
it culminates at the end of the program. You can override the
settings for each column. The changes also raise or lower the
columns on the remaining portion of the program profile.
Training tip: Avoid leaning on the handlebars to offload your
body weight, and maintain proper posture to increase your
caloric burn.
Pyramid
The Pyramid workout slowly increases the step rate to a peak
and then slowly decreases back to a slower rate. As the step
rate increases, resistance is decreased and then increases as
the step rate decreases. Any increase or decrease made in
one workout segment will increase or decrease all remaining
segments by the same amount.
Training tip: To get the most out of your workout, complete
as wide a range of motion as possible in each step. However,
do not allow the pedal to hit the top or bottom of the range.
57
Starting a Workout
Fitness Tests
Fitness tests evaluate your body’s overall fitness in terms of
its aerobic capacity. During the warmup stage of the test, you
can adjust your starting resistance settings. After that, you
complete a series of stages of increasing intensity. Based on
your progress through these stages and the changes in your
heart rate as you complete them, the equipment calculates
your fitness score at the end of the test.
On treadmills, the Gerkin Fitness Test compares your fitness
level with the official fitness standards of the International
Association of Firefighters (IAFF). This test is written using
the Gerkin Protocol, which is the basis for the official IAFF
fitness test and part of their Wellness and Fitness Initiative.
The equipment ends the test prematurely if any of the
following things happen:
The equipment cannot detect your heartbeat.
Your heart rate exceeds 85% of your maximum safe rate
for 15 seconds or more.
 Your heart rate changes too quickly.
 You stop the test yourself (by pressing the STOP switch
or pulling on the safety clip lanyard on a treadmill, or by
coming to a stop on an EFX or climber).
Important: For best results, sit and rest for at least five minutes
before you take the test.


Training tip: To see how your performance level increases
with exercise over time, try taking the fitness test as soon as
possible after you begin your exercise program. Then, as you
keep working out, take the fitness test from time to time and
watch your results improve.

59
Starting a Workout
Variety Key
Pressing the Variety key repeatedly scrolls through a group of
random, customizable, and specialized workouts.
Random
Variety (for both the muscles and the mind) is the key to
continued success for every exercise goal. The Random
workout delivers a different training profile every time you
select it. The one-minute segments that appear in the
workout profile maintain a set incline that you can override.
Training tip: Your body will respond differently to each
workout. The best way to evaluate and quantify the
effectiveness of each exercise session is to wear a chest strap
or use the touch-sensitive grips during your training sessions.
Cross Country Workouts
These workouts simulate an outdoor running experience. Any
increase or decrease made in one workout segment increases
or decreases all remaining "hills" and "valleys" depicted on
the display by the same amount.
Training tip: Advanced users can take their hands off the
handlebars to engage their core stabilizer muscles more
completely throughout the workout.
Gluteal Workouts
Strong glutes contribute to better posture, improved spine
and hip stabilization, and reduction in lower body injuries at
the hips, knees and ankles. These workouts target your thighs
and glutes as they gradually increase in intensity, but you can
modify the intensity levels at any time.
On EFX models, the workout prompts you to reverse direction
after 25%, 50%, and 75% of the total time. At these points,
you will see text messages on the console that remind you to
change direction.
Training tip: To increase your core activation (the effort
expended by your torso and gluteal muscles) during your
workout, take your hands off the machine handles or
handrails while maintaining an upright posture.
60
Operating and Maintaining the P30 Console
Twin Peaks
In this workout, you work your way through two long stages
of increasing and then decreasing intensity. The workout is
similar to the Aerobic workout, but allows longer intervals
between changes. You can adjust the intensity of the workout
at any time.
Training tip: Wear a heart rate monitor to visualize the
intensity of your effort as you climb each peak.
Rolling Hills
This cardio-conditioning program provides a high step rate.
Like the Aerobic program, it involves several peaks and
valleys in step rate; however, the dips in intensity during rest
periods are smaller, resulting in more consistent intensity.
You can override the settings for each column. The changes
also raise or lower the columns on the remaining portion of
the program profile.
Training tip: Avoid leaning on the handrails (and offloading
your weight) during this workout.
Custom Workouts
These workouts have been defined by the management of the
fitness facility. For more information, contact a facility staff
member.
61
Starting a Workout
Interval Key
Interval workouts help exercisers improve strength,
endurance, aerobic and anaerobic fitness. They alternate
short bursts of high intensity activity with recovery periods.
Pressing the Interval key repeatedly scrolls through the
available interval workouts.
1-1, 1-2, and 1-3 Interval
The 1-1 Interval workout is designed to raise and lower your
heart rate in a repeating fashion for a user-defined period of
time by alternating rest and work intervals of two minutes
each. Likewise, the 1-2 Interval and 1-3 Interval workouts
alternate two minutes of rest with four or six minutes of work.
Training tip: You can tailor your rest and work period
intensity further by adjusting either of the intensity settings at
any time. The equipment remembers these preferences for
each upcoming interval. (On EFX models, different work and
rest intensity levels are not defined, so you must define them
during the first work and rest stages.) For an additional
degree of control, use the Custom Interval workout to adjust
the duration of the intervals as well.
Custom Interval
The Custom Interval workout is similar to the Interval
workout. However, before you begin, you must specify the
length of the rest and work intervals. Use either the arrow
keys or the keypad to select a duration between 1 and 30
minutes, then press OK to enter your selection. After you
have entered both durations, your workout begins.
Training tip: Depending on your fitness level and workout
goals, you can set your recovery period as low as one minute
between work intervals. For the work intervals themselves,
you can set any duration between 1 and 30 minutes.
Customizing the proportions of your work and rest intervals
based on your unique training objectives will speed your
progress toward your performance goals.
62
Operating and Maintaining the P30 Console
Total Body Interval Workout
This workout, created specifically for EFX models with moving
arms, includes work and rest stages designed to train your
upper and lower body in one coordinated exercise. The
console displays instructions on how best to exercise your
arms and when to pedal backward.
Training tip: Push and pull on the moving handles to increase
upper body involvement and caloric burn.
Speed Bumps
In this interval workout, the intensity levels of the work stages
vary irregularly. You can modify these levels at any time
during the workout.
Training tip: Irregular changes throughout this workout help
avoid training plateaus and prevent workout boredom.
City Steps
The City Steps Program increases and decreases your step
rate in stages. In each stage, the rate gradually rises to a peak
and then falls quickly back to the starting rate. The workout
then repeats this pattern.
You can override the settings for each program segment. Any
increase or decrease alters all remaining segments by the
same amount.
Training tip: To increase your core activation (the effort
expended by your torso and gluteal muscles) during the
workout, avoid holding on to the handrails.
Manual Key
The workout available through the Manual key motivates you
by allowing you to define and track your exertion levels
throughout your exercise session.
Training tip: As you progress through your workout, each
segment of the profile reflects the last change you made to
the intensity settings. Challenge yourself by adjusting your
training parameters regularly for the best results.

first time.
The equipment usually returns to smooth operation after a
day or two of normal use. If it does not, contact your dealer
for assistance. For more information, refer to Obtaining
Service.
Verifying That the Heart Rate Display
Is Operational
To verify that the heart rate display is operational:
1. Begin exercising on the equipment.
2. Grasp both touch-sensitive handlebars.
Note: The heart rate is read within ten seconds. During
that time, the heart on the display flashes. You must
maintain contact with both metal plates on each
handlebar to ensure an accurate reading.
3. Look at the HEART RATE display. After a few seconds, a
number appears indicating your heart rate.
4. If a number does not appear in the HEART RATE display,
perform the following checks:
– Verify that the cable connection is properly
connected.
– Repeat the test with a different person. Although the
heart rate display is generally highly accurate, it may
not work properly for a few individuals.
Note: If you use wireless heart rate monitoring, repeat
this test using a chest strap or a wireless pulse simulator
instead of grasping the touch-sensitive handlebars.
