Self-Powered Features
On self-powered equipment, the battery initializes and displays the
Precor banner when a user starts exercising. A minimum rate of
motion must be maintained for the banner to appear, as shown in
the following table. When a person meets the requirements, the
power that is generated allows the equipment to function properly.
Table 1. Minimum requirements for operation
Equipment Rate of Motion
AMT
56 strides per minute (SPM)
EFX
40 strides per minute (SPM)
Climber
30 steps per minute
Cycle
20 revolutions per minute (RPM)
Informational displays appear when the battery is low or when the
rate of motion drops below the minimum requirements. The display
explains what to do to retain power. If the messages are ignored,
the equipment begins shutdown procedures to maintain the charge
of the battery. Refer to Informational Displays Prior to Shutdown.
Informational Displays Prior to
Shutdown
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.
Dots appear in the display and all key presses are ignored. If no
movement is detected or the rate of motion remains below the
minimum, the dots steadily disappear as the countdown continues.
Note: The user can resume exercising if he or she begins before
the countdown period elapses.
Important: If the equipment is connected to a CSAFE master
device, a slightly different scenario occurs. When ten seconds
remain before the equipment shuts off, the exercise session ends.
R E S E T T I N G appears in the display while the equipment
disconnects from the CSAFE master device. All key presses are
ignored.
An optional power adapter can be purchased and provides
sustained power to the equipment. If you plan to change the club
settings, the power adapter is highly recommended. To purchase
the optional power adapter, check with your dealer. Refer to
Obtaining Service.
Product Owner's Manual: Self-Powered Features

Symptoms of a Low Battery
Using the Optional Power Adapter
If no one has used the equipment for an extended period of time,
the battery may need recharging.
After connecting the power adapter to the equipment, plug the
opposite end into the appropriate power source 120 V or 240 V.
Symptoms of a low battery include:
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.
y A flickering or erratic display
y User and program information is lost once the user stops
exercising. No workout summary or notification of pending
shutdown occurs.
Important: To maintain a constant power source, use the optional
power adapter.
Product Owner's Manual: Self-Powered Features
The display 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 display returns to the Precor
banner. Refer to Setting a Pause Time Limit. To learn how to install
the power adapter, refer to The Optional Power Adapter Kit.
8
The Optional Power Adapter Kit
Replacing the Battery
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.
The equipment’s battery is built to last for a long time. However, if
you feel that the battery may need replacing, check with an
authorized service technician. Refer to Obtaining Service.
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.
CAUTION: The battery stored inside the equipment contains
hazardous materials and must be disposed of according to
Hazardous Waste Regulations. Refer to Hazardous Materials
and Proper Disposal.
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.

Maintenance
It is important to perform the minor maintenance tasks described
below. Failure to maintain the equipment as described in this
section could void the Precor Limited Warranty.
DANGER
To reduce the risk of electrical shock, always
unplug the equipment from its power source (an
optional power adapter in the case of
self-powered equipment) before cleaning it or
performing any maintenance tasks.
Daily Inspection
Look and listen for slipping belts, loose fasteners, unusual noises,
worn or frayed power cords, and any other indications that the
equipment may be in need of service. If you notice any of these,
obtain service.
Important: If you determine that the equipment needs service,
disconnect any power connections and move the equipment away
from the exercising area. Place an OUT OF SERVICE sign on it
and make sure all patrons and users know that they must not use
the equipment.
To order parts or to contact a Precor authorized service provider in
your area, refer to Obtaining Service.
Product Owner's Manual: Maintenance
Daily Cleaning
Precor recommends the equipment be cleaned before and after
each exercise session. Use mild soap and water to dampen a
clean, soft cloth and wipe all exposed surfaces. This helps remove
dust and dirt.
CAUTION: Do not use any acidic cleaners. Doing so will weaken
the paint or powder coatings and void the Precor Limited
Warranty. Never pour water or spray liquids on any part of the
equipment. Allow the equipment to dry completely before using.
Frequently vacuum the floor underneath the equipment to prevent
the accumulation of dust and dirt, which can affect the smooth
operation of the equipment. Use a soft nylon scrub brush to clean
the running belt on treadmills or the grooves on equipment with
foot pedals.
Moving the Equipment
It is important, if you plan to move the equipment, that you obtain
adult help and use proper lifting technique. The equipment is very
heavy. Take advantage of the roller wheels on the equipment when
moving it to a new location. Do not grasp any plastic parts while
lifting or moving the equipment. The plastic parts are not
structurally linked to the equipment and will break.
19
Storing the Chest Strap
Long-Term Storage
If you purchased the optional heart rate chest strap, store it in a
place where it remains free of dust and dirt (for example, in a closet
or drawer). Be sure to protect the chest strap from extremes in
temperature. Do not store it in a place that may be exposed to
temperatures below 32° F (0° C).
When the equipment is not in use for any length of time, make sure
it is turned Off (treadmill only) and the power cord or optional
power adapter (self-powered equipment) is unplugged from its
power source and is positioned so that it will not become damaged
or interfere with people or other equipment.
To clean the chest strap, use a sponge or soft cloth dampened in
mild soap and water. Dry the surface thoroughly with a clean towel.

WITH RESPECT TO ANY NONCONFORMANCE OR DEFECT IN ANY
PRODUCT, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO: (A) ANY OBLIGATION,

whether such damages are sought for breach of warranty, breach of contract,
negligence, or strict liability in tort or under any other legal theory. Some states
do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages,
so the above limitation may not apply to you.

AMT Features
The AMT is equipped with certain items that, when used properly,
help sustain an enjoyable workout. These items include:
y Adaptive Motion™
y Moving handlebars for a total body workout
y Using the Stationary Handrails
y Self-powered features
Moving Handlebars Support the Total
Body Workout
The handlebars provide an upper-body workout which helps

trainer adapts to your movements and lets you shift from short
strides to long strides, walking and running, or move in to deep
lunges.
User's Reference Manual: AMT Features
To learn more about the touch-sensitive grips, refer to Heart Rate
Features.

Self-Powered Features
The equipment does not require an electrical power connection. It
has an internal battery that is recharged every time you exercise for
a reasonable period of time. Meeting the minimum requirements for
operation causes the Precor banner to appear. You can press
QUICKSTART or select a program to begin exercising. For more
information, refer to Workout Options.
If you do not meet the minimum requirements for operation, a
30-second shutdown process begins. Dots appear in the display
and all key presses are ignored. If no movement is detected, the
dots steadily disappear as the countdown continues.
If you wish to resume exercising, you need to do so before the dots
disappear from the display.

Wearing a Chest Strap
During a workout, the heart rate features appear on the display
when you wear a chest strap. To receive an accurate reading, the
chest strap needs to be in direct contact with your skin.
3. Make sure that the chest strap is right side up, lies horizontally
across your chest, and is centered in the middle of your chest.
Refer to the following figure.
1. Carefully dampen the back of the strap with tap water Refer to
the following figure.
Note: Do not use deionized water. It does not have the proper
minerals and salts to conduct electrical impulses.
Figure 4: Fasten chest strap
After you put on the chest strap, face the display console for a few
seconds. This allows the receiver in the console to recognize the
signal from the chest strap.

Using the Touch-Sensitive Grips
Using SmartRate
While exercising, you must grasp both touch-sensitive grips for a
minimum of five to ten seconds to transmit your heart rate to the
display. Refer to the following figure.
The SmartRate feature helps you monitor and maintain your heart
rate in the target zone best suited to your specific needs. When a
heart rate signal is detected, a single LED blinks and indicates the
zone that your heart rate is in.
Important: To use the SmartRate feature, you must enter your age
during program selection. Refer to Selecting a Program.
The following table shows the percents used in calculating the
heart rate target zones. While your heart rate remains within these
zones, the corresponding light blinks and provides a visual cue.
CAUTION: Your heart rate should never exceed 85% of your
maximum aerobic heart rate or go above PEAK. If it does,
immediately reduce the intensity of your workout to return your
heart rate to your physician-recommended target zone.
Figure 5: Touch-sensitive grips
Usually, the concentration of salts in a person’s perspiration
provides enough conductivity to transmit a signal to the receiver
inside the display console. However, some people, because of
body chemistry or erratic heart beats, cannot use the
touch-sensitive grips. A chest strap may provide better results.
Important: While exercising, do not wear a chest strap and grasp
the touch-sensitive grips at the same time. Using both features may
cause erratic heart rate readings.

For example, pressing QUICKSTART at the Precor banner
causes the Manual Program to begin. Your age has not been
entered and is considered a null value. Your heart rate will
appear in the HEART RATE display when you hold onto the
touch-sensitive grips or wear a chest strap, but none of the
SmartRate LEDs blink because the appropriate calculations
have not been made.
Note: You can remedy this situation by choosing a program
using one of the PROGRAMS keys and entering your time,

Exercise to Your Target Heart Rate
Heart Rate Analysis
A dedicated window displays your heart rate while you exercise. To
view your heart rate (beats per minute) on the display, either wear a
chest strap or grasp both touch-sensitive grips.
Every time you complete a program using the chest strap or
touch-sensitive grips, the display provides a heart rate analysis after
the workout summary. Refer to Ending a Workout.
The Precor web site (www.precor.com) has several suggestions for
workouts with varying levels of intensity. It provides many workout
details that include the appropriate target heart rate.
Your average heart rate appears followed by the maximum heart
rate achieved during your workout. A third display appears, if you
entered your age, and indicates the amount of time your heart rate
remained between the target zones shown.
The equipment includes one or more heart rate programs that let
you exercise based on a specified target heart rate. As you
exercise, the programs monitor your heart rate and automatically
maintain it within a few beats per minute of your selected target. To
use these programs, press the PROGRAMS – HEART RATE key.
For more information, refer to Programs.
User's Reference Manual: Heart Rate Features
The heart rate analysis is based on how often your heart rate signal
is received while exercising. If you use the chest strap, the average
heart rate will be more accurate than if you occasionally grasp the
touch-sensitive grips.

Troubleshooting Heart Rate
The following table may help you understand and troubleshoot
erratic heart rate readings.
Important: A heart rate can only be detected when the Precor
heart rate receiver is properly installed in the display. A user must
wear the chest strap or grasp both touch-sensitive grips.

The STRIDE LENGTH display presents a visual representation of
the length of your stride. The lighted pendulum swings to the right
as you stride forward with your right leg and swings to the left as
your left leg moves forward.
The icons indicate which muscle groups are affected by the length
of your stride. To view the actual measurement (inches or
centimeters) of the length of your stride, choose STRIDE LENGTH
through the METRICS key. Refer to Changing Your Workout

TIME REMAINING—shows the amount of time remaining in
a workout. If the selected time is less than 60 minutes, the
display shows time in minutes and seconds. If you select a
time greater than 60 minutes, the display reflects hours and
minutes until the countdown reaches 60 minutes, at which
time the display reverts to minutes and seconds.

CALORIES/MIN, STRIDES/MIN, and
DISTANCE
CAL/MIN—displays the approximate number of calories
burned per minute.
STRIDES/MIN—displays the number of strides you
complete in a minute up to a maximum value of 510 strides
per minute. A stride is an exaggerated walking movement. If
you start in a position with one foot plate forward, a stride is
completed when you move the rear foot plate all the way
forward while the other foot plate moves to the rear. Two
strides create one complete revolution of the flywheel. So,
the value that appears on the display is always an even
number between 56 and 510.

Use this section as a reference tool to better understand each
program’s purpose.
Program Tips
Choosing a Program
y While exercising, you need to sustain your exercise motion.
Stopping any movement causes the equipment to shut down to
conserve battery power.
Choosing a program depends on your goals. If you are a beginner
or returning to regular exercise, you can start a cardio-conditioning
program to slowly return your body to a comfortable level of
exercise. If you have been exercising and feel that you have an
intermediate or advanced fitness level, you probably have
established goals. The Precor web site (www.precor.com) can give
you many ideas about fitness routines and advice from the experts.
Several of the exercise choices on the equipment are
preprogrammed with recommended settings. However, you have
the option to override the suggested settings, with some
exceptions. If changes are not allowed, a message scrolls across
the display explaining your options.
If your level of exertion becomes too great, reduce your level of
intensity by overriding each upcoming segment in the program
profile. When you complete a program that contains a time limit or
goal period, an automatic cool-down period begins.
User's Reference Manual: Programs
y Begin at the Precor banner and choose a program by pressing a

Options.
y In some programs, an unlimited time setting may be an available
option. Refer to Selecting a Program.
y The fitness facility can set limits on workout, pause, and
cool-down times and customize other aspects of your exercise
session. Check with your manager to learn if any limits are in
place that might affect your program selections.

Heart Rate Program Tips
Heart Rate Program
The Basic HRC Program, available by pressing the HEART RATE
key, lets you set a target for your heart rate. The program adjusts
the resistance to maintain your heart rate within two beats per
minute of the target heart rate while you exercise. To use this
program, you must enter your age and wear a chest strap so your
heart rate can be monitored throughout the session.
Important: Consult your physician to determine the appropriate
target heart rate for your age and fitness level. If your physician
recommends a different target heart rate than the one that appears
on the display, use the navigational arrow keys to change the
target heart rate once you finish the warm-up period. Do not
exercise over the recommended range.
The Basic HRC Program enhances your overall cardiovascular
fitness levels to help you achieve your weight loss and fitness
goals. Read through the following tips before selecting the Basic
HRC Program. These tips provide general information regarding
how the program functions. For more information and exercise
suggestions, refer to the Precor web site at www.precor.com.
Important: Maintain a rate of motion above the minimum
requirements. Refer to Self-Powered Features. Automatic
adjustments to the resistance cannot take place if you drop below
the minimum requirements for operation.
y The program provides a 3-minute warm-up period. During this
time, you may change the resistance, but you cannot change the
goal setting.
Note: When your target heart rate is achieved or the 3-minute
period elapses, the warm-up period ends and the program
begins at which point, you may change to a distance or calorie
goal.
y The program automatically adjusts the resistance to keep your
heart rate at the selected target. After the warm-up period,
pressing the RESISTANCE keys no longer affects the
resistance levels. Check the SmartRate display to see if you are
maintaining your preferred zone. Check the HEART RATE
display to determine your actual heart rate. For information
about understanding your target heart rate, refer to Heart Rate
Features.
y You can change the target heart rate, but doing so affects how
well your target heart rate remains in the preferred zone. It takes
time to readjust the resistance so that your heart rate remains on
target.

Assembly Guide
100i
Commercial Adaptive Motion Trainer
Thank you for choosing Precor. For proper installation, please read this guide
thoroughly and follow the assembly instructions. If you do not assemble the
AMT according to these guidelines, you could void the Precor Limited
Warranty.
Installation Requirements
Follow these installation requirements when assembling the unit:
•
Assemble the unit near the location where you plan to use it.
•
Provide ample space around the unit.
Open space around the unit allows for easier access.
•
Set up the AMT on a solid, flat surface.
A smooth, flat surface under the unit helps keep it level. A level unit has
fewer malfunctions.
•
Open the box and assemble the components in the sequence
presented in this guide.
•
Insert all fasteners with your fingers.
Use your fingers to properly align and thread the fasteners. This helps
alleviate cross-threading. Do not fully wrench tighten fasteners until
instructed to do so.
Obtaining Service
You should not attempt to service the AMT except for maintenance tasks as
described in the Product Owner’s Manual. If any items are missing, contact
your dealer. Should you need more information regarding customer support
numbers or a list of Precor authorized service centers, visit the Precor web site
at www.precor.com/corp/contact.
Unpacking the Equipment
Ask for help from two or more people to unpack and assemble the AMT.
Important: When wrench tightening, the head of the fastener should be
flush with the product. If it is not, cross-threading has occurred. Do not
attempt to rework the assembly as more damage to the equipment will
occur. Contact Customer Support. Refer to Obtaining Service.
Required Tools
•
Wire tie cutter
•
Phillips-head screwdriver
•
SAE Standard socket set
•
Rubber mallet
•
If you plan to move the unit, obtain help. Do not grasp any plastic parts
while lifting or moving the unit. The plastic parts are not capable of
supporting the weight of the unit and they may break.
Cardio Theater PVS
Assembly Instructions
If the Cardio Theater Personal Viewing System (PVS) accompanies this Precor
unit, review the PVS assembly instructions found in the Cardio Theater box.
Alleviate additional assembly or disassembly steps by combining the two
assemblies as needed.

Assembly Steps
Remove the two side fasteners that hold the front frame
tube to the shipping pallet. Cut the tie wraps that secure
the rear base.
CAUTION: Ask for an assistant to help you roll the
AMT off its pallet. Also, do not install the handlebars
at this time. The handlebars provide an alternative
handhold and, during assembly, may cause injury
due to increased foot plate movement.
Lift the rear base and roll the AMT forward while your
assistant stabilizes the front and guides it off the pallet.
Move the AMT to the location where you plan to use it.
Insert the end caps (E) into the front frame tube. Align
the end caps and, if necessary, use a rubber mallet to
secure them in place.

Important: Temporarily cover the pivot arm holes on the
front covers with packing material so fasteners or tools do
not inadvertently fall inside.
Use a Phillips-head screwdriver to remove the four screws
that secure the back console plate to the display console.
Set the fasteners and cover aside.
Hold the display console above its mounting bracket on
the AMT. Feed the lower board cable through the hole and
out the base of the display console bracket.
Connect the heart rate cable to the 4-prong receptacle on
the electronics board.
Important: Make sure to move the lower board and heart
rate cables out of the way as you place the display
console onto its mounting bracket.

Thread four locknuts (A) onto the bolts to secure the
display console onto its bracket. Wrench tighten using a
½-inch socket wrench.
Slide a plastic boot (D) onto each handlebar. As you face
the display, note which handlebar mounts on the right and
on the left pivot arm stubs. Attach the handlebars using
four 1¾-inch hex head screws (B), eight washers (C),
four locknuts (A). Wrench tighten.
Note: When the handlebars are mounted correctly, each
bends slightly outward.
Cover the fasteners with a plastic boot. Rotate the plastic
boot so its tab aligns with the cutout. Apply downward
pressure to secure the plastic boots in place.

Level the AMT.
Install the rear pedestal over the rear crosspiece.
Before allowing users on the AMT, make sure it does not wobble from
side to side.
Important: The rear pedestal lays flat on the floor. It provides a
mounting platform for stepping onto the AMT and also indicates the
buffer zone that patrons must stay clear of when someone is using
the AMT.
Levelers
To remove any side-to-side movement, take the following steps:
1. Ask your assistant to tip the unit forward to expose the three
levelers on the rear base.
Rear pedestal
2. Rotate the levelers to raise or lower the unit.
Important: If the unit is placed on a slightly uneven surface,
rotating the levelers can help, but will not compensate for extremely
uneven surfaces.
3. When you are finished adjusting the AMT, ask your assistant to
gently lower the unit to the floor.

Verify that the heart rate display is operational.
1. Stand on the rear pedestal and face the display.
Replace the back console plate onto the display console using the four
screws removed in step 4. Secure the fasteners with a Phillips-head
screwdriver.
2. Place one foot in the lower foot plate and grasp an arm or a
stationary handlebar for stability while you step into the other foot
plate.
3. When you are comfortably situated, begin climbing.
4. Grasp both touch-sensitive handlebar grips.
5. Look at the HEART RATE display. After a few seconds, a number
appears indicating your heart rate.
Note: If a number does not appear in the HEART RATE display, check
the 4-prong heart rate cable to make sure it is properly connected.
