1 SETUP
Read the Operation Manual before setting up the Life Fitness Cross-Trainer.
Where to Place the Life Fitness Cross-Trainer
Follow all safety instructions and move the Life Fitness Cross-Trainer to the location in which it will be used. See Section
7 for the dimensions of the footprint. Allow 2 feet (0.6 meters) of clearance around the Life Fitness Cross-Trainer to allow
for movement of the pedal levers. It should be easy to mount the Life Fitness Cross-Trainer from the side.
How to Stabilize the Life Fitness Cross-Trainer
After placing the Life Fitness Cross-Trainer in position, check the unit’s stability by attempting to rock it. Any slight rocking
indicates that the unit must be leveled. Check the stabilizing feet to determine which foot does not rest fully on the floor.
Rotate the foot counter-clockwise to lower it. Recheck the stability and adjust again as needed until the Life Fitness
Cross-Trainer is stable and no longer rocks. Lock the adjustment into position by tightening the jam nut against the
stabilizer bar with an open end 9/16 inch wrench.
Plug In the Life Fitness Cross-Trainer (DOMESTIC UNITS ONLY)
The Life Fitness Cross-Trainer comes with a standard power supply. Insert
the power adapter jack into the barrel plug on the back of the Life Fitness
Cross-Trainer. Then insert the power supply into the wall outlet. Make
sure the cord is routed so that it doesn’t bind and will not be walked on.
Check that the console LEDs light up. If not, recheck the plug and wall
connections and make sure the wall outlet has power.
Note: International units are self-powered only. Use only the power supply
provided by Life Fitness in order to insure against unsafe operation.

2.2 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: programmed intensity level. Toggles with Heart Rate.
• Heart Rate: the detected heart rate if the user is wearing the Polar telemetry heart rate chest strap or
grasping the Lifepulse system sensors.
• Distance: the total distance traveled in miles (or kilometers if enabled).
• Speed: the pedaling speed or rate in miles per hour (or kilometers per hour if enabled).
• Calories: the number of calories burned since beginning the workout. Toggles with Time.
• Time: time elapsed since the start of the workout. Toggles with Calories.
If configured to do so, the MESSAGE CENTER displays any or all of these three values each time the intensity
level changes during the workout:
• Calories per Hour: the rate of calories burned per hour.
• 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.
NOTE: The Watts display and the Calories per Hour display cannot be turned on at the same time. See
Section 5 for information about enabling the MESSAGE CENTER to display these additional settings.
C.
ARROW keys: Use the UP and DOWN Arrow keys to change workout parameters displayed on the console,
such as length of workout, weight, age, target heart rate, and intensity level. Pressing these keys during
a FAT BURN, CARDIO, HEART RATE HILL, HEART RATE INTERVAL, or EXTREME HEART RATE workout increases
or decreases the target heart rate.
D.
CLEAR key: Press this key, when programming a workout, to clear incorrect data, such as weight or age, before
pressing the ENTER key. Pressing CLEAR during a workout stops it immediately, at which point, the MESSAGE
CENTER displays a summary of the workout, including total time elapsed, total distance traveled, and
total calories burned. Pressing CLEAR a second time causes the MESSAGE CENTER to prompt the user for a
new workout setup.
E.
DISPLAY LOCK: During a workout, the MESSAGE CENTER alternately displays the number of CALORIES
BURNED and the amount of TIME ELAPSED. Pressing the DISPLAY LOCK key when the MESSAGE CENTER
displays either statistic, forces the MESSAGE CENTER to display that statistic continuously throughout
the workout. Pressing DISPLAY LOCK again allows the MESSAGE CENTER to resume toggling between
both statistics.
F.
WORKOUT PROFILES keys: Press this key to select workout options:
• MANUAL
• EZ RESISTANCE
• CARDIO
• EXTREME HEART RATE
• RANDOM
• SPORTS TRAINING
• HEART RATE HILL
• TOTAL BODY
• HILL
• FAT BURN
• HEART RATE INTERVAL
• LOWER BODY
• Six Preset Workouts: AROUND THE WORLD, CASCADES, FOOTHILLS, INTERVAL, KILIMANJARO,
SPEED TRAINING
• FIT TEST
11
G.
COOL DOWN key: Workout programs 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.
H.
ENTER key: Press this key to confirm entries of workout setup values, as displayed in the MESSAGE CENTER.
I.
QUICK START key: Press this key to begin a MANUAL workout immediately, without having to select a workout
program. Once the workout is in progress, use the ARROW keys to change the intensity level or workout
duration as desired.
J.

Heart Rate Zone Training®
3.1 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 Cross-Trainer features five exclusive workouts designed to take full advantage of the benefits of Heart
Rate Zone Training+ exercise:
• FAT BURN
• CARDIO
• HEART RATE HILL™ • EXTREME HEART RATE™
• HEART RATE INTERVAL™
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 LEVEL arrow keys.
To switch between programs during a workout, use the WORKOUT SELECTION KEYS.
The Heart Rate Zone Training® workout programs measure heart rate. Wear the optional Polar® telemetry heart rate
chest strap, or grip the Lifepulse™ sensors, to enable the cross-trainer’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.

3.2 Heart Rate Monitoring
The Lifepulse™ Digital Heart Rate Monitoring System
The patented Lifepulse system sensors are the built-in heart rate monitoring system on the Life Fitness Cross-Trainer.
For the most accurate reading possible, during a workout:
• Grasp the sensors (A) firmly.
• Hold each sensors 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.
A
A
The Optional Polar® Telemetry Heart Rate Chest Strap
The Life Fitness Cross-Trainer 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 the sensor signals for
calculating the heart rate instead of those transmitted with the
Polar telemetry heart rate chest strap.

4-6 weeks.
16
TOTAL BODY WORKOUT simulates the experience of working with a personal trainer. The MESSAGE CENTER displays prompts at different times to emphasize pushing, pulling, total body, lower body, speed changes, and forward /
reverse motion. This versatile workout promotes maximum cross-training benefits.
LOWER BODY WORKOUT continuously alternates five minutes of forward motion with two minutes of backward
motion to cross-train different muscle groups.
MY WORKOUTS is not a workout program but a feature that allows the user to pre-set up to seven workouts with
personal setup information, such as age or level, and then store the workouts in the console memory.
SPORT TRAINING simulates an outdoor terrain by setting various resistance levels.
EZ RESISTANCE features a gradual, subtle increase in resistance, independent of the user’s pedaling speed. A peak
in resistance is followed by an equally subtle decrease in resistance.
4.2 Using the Workouts
This section provides detailed information on setting up and using workouts. For quick-reference setup steps, see the
chart at the end of the section.
To Begin a Workout
To mount the Life Fitness Cross-Trainer, grasp the handles and carefully step on the pedals. To dismount, step off the
pedals while still holding the handles. Then let go of the handles. Press START or simply begin 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 WORKOUT PROFILES 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, 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. The on-board computer calculates the number and rate of calories burned using the entered weight as well as the pedaling speed and
resistance level.
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 Cross-Trainer 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.
17
Selecting and Adjusting the Resistance Level
When prompted by the MESSAGE CENTER, use the ARROW KEYS to increase or decrease the displayed resistance level or target heart rate to the desired value, and press ENTER. Adjust the level as needed or desired during the workout.

Resistance level: The Life Fitness Cross-Trainer provides a selection of 25 resistance levels. The resistance
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 increase.

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 Lifepulse system sensors or the Polar heart rate
chest strap; and 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 Life Fitness Cross-Trainer feature alternate ways to vary workouts.

Total Body Trainer: This workout mode simulates the experience of working out with a trainer. Throughout
the workout, the MESSAGE CENTER displays prompts to vary the workload and emphasize different muscle
groups, such as upper- and lower-body. This feature can be used with any workout, except for FAT BURN,
CARDIO, HEART RATE HILL, HEART RATE INTERVAL, EXTREME HEART RATE, and EZ RESISTANCE. To select it,
press the TOTAL BODY TRAINER key.

Lower Body Trainer: This workout mode continuously alternates five minutes of forward motion with two minutes of reverse motion, to exercise different leg muscles. This feature can be used with any workout, except for
FAT BURN, CARDIO, HEART RATE HILL, HEART RATE INTERVAL, EXTREME HEART RATE, and EZ RESISTANCE.
To select it, press the LOWER BODY TRAINER key.
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,” press the WORKOUT PROFILES key, and then select a new workout. This feature is available for all workouts, except EZ RESISTANCE, AROUND
THE WORLD, KILIMANJARO, INTERVAL, CASCADES, SPEED TRAINING, and FOOTHILLS.
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.
Pausing Workouts
To pause a workout, simply stop pedaling. To continue the workout, resume pedaling. The pause duration lasts 60 seconds, after which, the MESSAGE CENTER displays the prompt: “SELECT WORKOUT USING ARROW KEYS OR PRESS
QUICK START”.
NOTE: In addition to stopping, users may also activate the PAUSE key once to pause workout data accumulation and
pedal resistance. Press it again to resume workout.
NOTE (INTERNATIONAL UNITS ONLY): The Cross-Trainer will go into Energy Saving Mode after five minutes of inactivity. To wake up the console: start to pedal, press QUICK START, or select a workout.

4.3 Workout Descriptions
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 to Level 1 and remains the same unless manually changed. To
change the level, use the UP and DOWN 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,
increase 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 Lifepulse
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 cross-trainer 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 TRAINING™ 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 Lifepulse 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 byproducts 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.
21
HEART RATE HILL™
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 always is
defined as 65 percent 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 cross-trainer 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 cross-trainer 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 RATE™
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 Lifepulse 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.

SIX PRE-SET WORKOUTS
AROUND THE WORLD, CASCADES, FOOTHILLS, INTERVAL, KILIMANJARO, and SPEED TRAINING are variations of the
HILL workout. These workouts cannot be changed “on the fly.”
 AROUND THE WORLD is an interval-training workout in which the hills resemble scenes of various geographical areas.

CASCADES is a two-peak workout in which intensity levels gradually increase and decrease.

FOOTHILLS is a rolling hill workout with low intensity levels.

INTERVAL is a Hill workout in which intensity levels rise and fall. The higher levels gradually incline toward a
peak and then gradually decline.

KILIMANJARO is a Hill workout in which the intensity levels gradually incline toward one ultimate peak and
then gradually decline.

SPEED TRAINING is a Hill workout in which the intensity level alternates between high and low levels very
quickly to simulate a typical speed training workout.
TOTAL BODY WORKOUT
During this workout, the MESSAGE CENTER displays prompts to emphasize different muscle groups. To emphasize
upper-body muscles, the MESSAGE CENTER displays prompts to focus on pushing and pulling the moving arms
at various times. To emphasize lower-body muscles, the MESSAGE CENTER displays prompts to rest the hands on the
stationary handlebar, thus forcing the legs to do all the work. The program also alternates between forward and reverse motion as well as different speeds.
Ten seconds after prompting the user to change pedaling direction, the workout applies “braking resistance,” that is,
a high resistance level that essentially forces the user to stop pedaling. Once the user stops pedaling, the workout
resumes the normal resistance level. The actual level of braking resistance depends on the user’s pedaling RPM. If the
user is pedaling at a rate equal to, or faster than, 65 RPM, the workout applies the maximum level of braking resistance.
If the user is pedaling at a speed below 65 RPM, the workout applies 92% of the maximum.
TOTAL BODY WORKOUT is a constant-resistance workout. However, for a similar experience with a variable-resistancelevel workout, the user can start any workout, except for FAT BURN, CARDIO, HEART RATE HILL, HEART RATE INTERVAL, EXTREME HEART RATE, or EZ RESISTANCE; and then press the TOTAL BODY TRAINER key.
LOWER BODY WORKOUT
During this workout, the MESSAGE CENTER displays alternating prompts to use pedal forward for five minutes and
then backward motion for two minutes. This feature varies the emphasis on different leg muscles. Ten seconds after
prompting the user to change pedaling direction, the workout applies “braking resistance,” that is, a high resistance
level that essentially forces the user to stop pedaling. Once the user stops pedaling, the workout resumes the normal
resistance level. The actual level of braking resistance depends on the user’s pedaling RPM. If the user is pedaling at a
rate equal to, or faster than, 65 RPM, the workout applies the maximum level of braking resistance. If the user is pedaling at a speed below 65 RPM, the workout applies 92% of the maximum.
LOWER BODY WORKOUT is a constant-resistance workout. However, for a similar experience with a variable-resistance-level workout, the user can start any workout, except for FAT BURN, CARDIO, HEART RATE HILL, HEART RATE
INTERVAL, EXTREME HEART RATE, or EZ RESISTANCE; and then press the LOWER BODY TRAINER key.
25
FIT TEST
The Life Fitness Cross-Trainer Fit Test program is another exclusive feature of this versatile Cross-Trainer. 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.
To set up the Fit Test:

Begin pedaling.

Press the WORKOUT PROFILES 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 NUMERIC KEYS or UP/DOWN
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 NUMERIC KEYS or UP/DOWN
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 UP/DOWN 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
NUMERIC KEYS or UP/DOWN ARROW KEYS to enter the corresponding level.

As the test continues, a message will prompt the user to maintain a pedaling rate between 50-60 rpm (equivalent to 4.2-5.5 mph). The user must maintain this rate throughout the 5-minute test duration. After 16 seconds,
if 50-60 rpm is not maintained, the fit test will automatically terminate.
After the five-minute FIT TEST is completed, a FIT TEST score will be displayed.

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
* 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
26

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
taller
If you make an error when entering any Fit Test data, you can correct it by pressing CLEAR, inputting the correct information, 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.

6.3 Troubleshooting the Optional Polar Telemetry Heart Rate Chest Strap
Malfunction
Heart rate reading is
initially detected and
functioning normally but
then is lost.
Probable Cause
Corrective Action
Use of personal electronic
devices, such as cell phones and
portable MP3 players, causes
external noise interference.
Remove the source of noise or reposition the exercise
Equipment is in close proximity equipment.
to other sources of noise such as
audio/ video equipment, fans,
two way radios, and high voltage/high current power lines.
Television sets and/or antennas
generate electromagnetic
interference.
Cell phones generate
electromagnetic interference.
Computers generate electromagnetic interference.
Heart rate readings are
abnormally elevated.
Cars generate electromagnetic
interference.
High voltage power lines
generate electromagnetic
interference.
Move the cross-trainer a few inches away from the probable
cause, or move the probable cause a few inches away from
the cross-trainer until the heart rate readings are accurate.
Motor driven exercise equipment generates electromagnetic
interference.
Another heart rate transmitter
within 3 feet (1 meter)
generates electromagnetic
interference.
Belt transmitter electrodes are
not wet enough to pick up
accurate heart rate readings.
Wet the belt transmitter electrodes (see Section 3.2).
Belt transmitter electrodes are
not laying flat against the skin.
Ensure the belt transmitter electrodes are laying flat against
the skin (see Section 3.2).
Belt transmitter needs cleaning.
Heart rate reading is
erratic or absent entirely.
Wash the belt transmitter with mild soap and water.
Belt transmitter is not within 3
feet (1 meter) of the heart rate
receiver.
Make sure the chest strap transmitter is within 3 feet (1 meter) of the heart rate receiver.
Polar telemetry heart rate
chest strap battery is depleted.
Contact Life Fitness Customer Support Services for instructionson how to have the Polar telemetry heart rate chest strap
replaced.
Make sure the Polar telemetry heart rate chest strap is
applied and move closer to the heart rate receiver. Wait up
to 10 seconds for the heart rate to display on the console.
Polar telemetry heart rate cheststrap did not lock in with theheart rate receiver.
34
NOTES:
1. Ensure proper adherence of the Polar telemetry heart
rate chest strap to user’s chest.
2. Ensure proper conductivity between the electrodes and
user’s chest.
3. If needed, use the Polar watch to verify chest strap’s
operation.
6.4 Troubleshooting the Lifepulse System Sensors
If the heart rate reading is erratic or missing, do the following:
 Dry hands if necessary to prevent slipping.

Apply hands to all four sensors; two in each hand.

Grasp the sensors firmly.

Apply constant pressure around the sensors.
6.5 How to Obtain Product Service / Serial Number Location
1. Verify the symptom and review the operating instructions. The problem may be unfamiliarity with the product and
its features and workouts.
2. Locate and write down the serial number of the unit which
is located on the front stabilizer.
