Page | 18 Calculating Target Heart Rate
In order to obtain the greatest cardiovascular benefits from your exercise workout, it is important to
work within your target heart rate zone. The American Heart Association defines this target as 60%85% percent of your maximum heart rate.
Your maximum heart rate may be roughly calculated by subtracting your age from 220. Your
maximum heart rate and aerobic capacity naturally decreases as you age. This will vary from one
person to another. Use this number to find your approximate effective target zone. It is most effective
to train at your target heart rate between 60% and 85% of your maximum heart rate; referred to as
“Training Zone”. In order to get the most accurate reading, it is recommended to enter your age
before your workout.
Before beginning your workout, check your normal resting heart rate. Place your fingers lightly
against your neck or against your wrist over the main artery. After finding your pulse, count the
number of beats in 10 seconds. Multiply the number of beats by six to determine your resting pulse
rate per minute. We recommend taking your heart rate at these times; at rest, after warming up,
during your workout and two minutes into your cool down, to accurately track your progress as it
relates to better fitness.
During your first several months of exercising, the AHA recommends aiming for the lower part of the
target heart rate zone-60%, then gradually progressing up to 75%. According to the AHA, exercising
above 85% of your maximum heart rate may be too strenuous unless you are in top physical
condition. Exercising below 60% of your maximum will result in minimal cardiovascular conditioning.
Check your pulse recovery rate – If your pulse is over 100bpm five minutes after you stop exercising,
or if it’s higher than normal the morning after exercising, your exertion may have been too strenuous
for your current fitness level. Rest and reduce the intensity level of the next exercise.
Fitness Safety: The Heart Rate chart indicates average heart rate zones for different ages. A
variety of different factors (including medication, emotional state, temperature and other conditions)
can affect the target heart rate zone that is best for you. Your physician or health care professional
can help you determine the exercise intensity that is appropriate for your age and condition.
Page | 19 Heart Rate Monitoring Devices
Optional Accessory: Chest Strap
The R88 is equipped with a built-in wireless 5k receiver for your heart rate monitoring transmitter.
Please contact your dealer to purchase a compatible 5k chest strap transmitter, if you would like to
use more wireless heart rate features.
To get an accurate reading using these devices, you will need to be within three feet of the console,
and a minimum of four feet from others using a heart rate monitoring device.
The receiver of the wireless ECG system is built into the console unit.
How to Wear Your Sensor/ Transmitter:
(1)
(2)
(3)
(4)
(5)
Buckle one end of the chest strap onto the transmitter.
Adjust the band length so that the fit is snug, but not too tight.
Buckle the other end of the chest strap onto the transmitter
Center the transmitter on your chest below the pectoral muscle (breasts).
Stretch the transmitter away from your chest and moisten the conductive electrode strips located
next to the buckles with water.
Note: The transmitter is on automatically when it is being worn. It is off when it is not connected to
your body; however, as moisture may activate the transmitter, thoroughly dry the transmitter after
every use to prolong battery life.
Chest Strap Troubleshooting: No heart rate reading
9 If transmitter was just strapped on, wait a few minutes so that the transmitter gets a good connection
with your body. When you start to sweat the connection will improve.
9 While wearing the transmitter, adjust the strap to get a different position.
9 Check that the elastic strap is tight enough around your body.
9 Check that the electrodes on the transmitter are moistened properly.
9 Check that the transmitter electrodes are clean.
9 Check to see if battery is still working. The estimated average battery life of the transmitter is 600
hours of use. If the battery of the transmitter is running low, the transmission range decreases and
may cause errors similar to the ones listed above.
Page | 20 Care and Maintenance
The LifeCORE R88 is made from the best materials and has been tested and received a quality
control review prior to its packaging to ensure the correct parts and proper fitting of each component.
The amount of maintenance required is very little and very simple; however, a failure to implement
preventative maintenance suggestions can prevent the machine from operating as designed. The

type of lubricating will damage the unit’s components voiding the warranty.
¾ Always clean the machine after use. (Rail, Seat, Handlebar)
1) Proper cleaning is important for longevity of a machine, clean the unit with a light soap
water mixture, followed by a dry towel. You can also use a light house hold cleaner
such as Windex to remove dirt and sweat. The purpose of cleaning the unit is to remove
body sweat from the unit which contains salt. Salt is the number one factor that will
cause the unit to rust and the electronics to stop working.
2) Dry the unit off with a clean towel to remove left over moisture after every use.
9 After the first 12 hours of use, check and retighten any bolts, nuts, screws, pedals, etc.
making sure that they are tight and working properly.
1) The number one service issue is loose hardware. Loose hardware can cause the unit to
tick, creak, thump, knock, etc. After the first 12 hours once all the hardware has been
tightened, the hardware should be checked every 3 months.
2) Never mix old and new batteries and never mix different brand of batteries. If unit is
going to be stored for a long period of time, it is mandatory to remove the batteries to
prevent damaging the electrical system
