WORKOUT OVERVIEW
QUICK START
Simply press START and you will skip the setup of specific workouts and
begin exercising at a constant level (manual) workout. The resistance
levels do not change automatically, but you can adjust the resistance
with the arrows as you choose.
NOTE: Because you did not go through setup mode, the computer will
use default values to calculate your feedback information.
MANUAL is a workout in which the resistance
DELUXE
level does not change unless you change it.
SPRINT 8™ is an anaerobically-based interval
program. It is effective in recruiting fast
twitch muscle fibers and improving athletic
performance.
INTERVALisanefficientworkoutthatstrengthens
your cardiovascular system by alternating
work intervals with recovery intervals. Be
sure to challenge yourself with intense work
intervals.
33
FAT BURN is a program intended to target your
stored body fat. This program is generally
used at a slightly lower intensity, but runs for
longer durations than other programs (30 to
60 minutes is recommended).
MOUNTAIN features gradual increases
in resistance to simulate riding through a
mountain range. This is a great program for
building strength and endurance.
RANDOMis a program for users who enjoy
DELUXE
variety in their daily workout routine. When
this program is selected the computer will
randomly select a resistance level for each
segment of the workout based on the
resistance level that the user chooses in set-up
mode.
WATTS is a program that lets the user exercise
at a set work level. As you increase your RPM,
your resistance will decrease; if you decrease
your RPM, your resistance will increase.
34
USING THE SPRINT 8 PROGRAM
The Sprint 8 program is an anaerobic interval program designed to
build muscle, improve speed, and naturally increase the release of
Human Growth Hormone (HGH) in your body. Producing HGH through
exercise and a proper diet has been shown as an effective way to burn
fat and build lean muscle mass according to Phil Campbell, author of
Ready, Set, Go! Synergy Fitness. Please go to Mr. Campbell’s website
www.readysetgofitness.com for more details about this radical new
approach to fitness.
DELUXE
The SPRINT 8 program features intense sprint intervals followed by
recovery intervals. The program includes the following phases:
1. WARM-UP should gradually increase your heart rate and increase
respiration and blood flow to working muscles. The warm-up is
controlled by the user to meet your specific needs.
2. INTERVAL TRAINING starts immediately after the warm-up with a
30-second sprint interval. Seven recovery intervals of one minute
and 30 seconds will alternate with the eight 30-second sprint
intervals. The message display will prompt you to increase your
RPMs during the sprint interval and decrease RPMs during the
recovery interval. A difference of 30 to 50 RPM between sprint
interval and recovery interval is recommended for bikes. A
difference of 20 to 30 RPMs between sprint interval and recovery
interval is recommended for elliptical trainers.
3. COOL-DOWN helps return your body’s systems to resting levels. Less
demand is placed on your heart during recovery if an appropriate
cool-down is used following the exercise.
Due to the fact that this is a specialized training program, total workout time
is not displayed during the program. The interval time is displayed in the time
window instead. It takes only 20 minutes to complete the SPRINT 8 workout.
35
USING THE PROGRAMS
SELECTING QUICK START
The easiest way to begin exercising
is to simply press the START key.

WORKOUT OVERVIEW
QUICK START
Simply press START and you will skip the setup of specific workouts and
begin exercising at a constant level (manual) workout. The resistance
levels do not change automatically, but you can adjust the resistance
with the arrows as you choose.
NOTE: Because you did not go through setup mode, the computer will
use default values to calculate your feedback information.
MANUAL is a workout in which the resistance
level does not change unless you change it.
SPRINT 8™ is an anaerobically-based interval
P REMIER
program. It is effective in recruiting fast
twitch muscle fibers and improving athletic
performance.
INTERVALisanefficientworkoutthatstrengthens
your cardiovascular system by alternating
work intervals with recovery intervals. Be
sure to challenge yourself with intense work
intervals.
46
FAT BURN is a program intended to target your
stored body fat. This program is generally
used at a slightly lower intensity, but runs for
longer durations than other programs (30 to
60 minutes is recommended).
MOUNTAIN features gradual increases
in resistance to simulate riding through a
mountain range. This is a great program for
building strength and endurance.
RANDOM is a program for users who enjoy
PREMIER
variety in their workout routine. When this
program is selected the computer will randomly
select a resistance level for each segment of
the workout based on the resistance level that
the user chooses in set-up mode.
WATTS is a program that lets the user exercise
at a set work level. As you increase your
RPM, your resistance will decrease; if you
decrease your RPM, your resistance will
increase.
47
USING THE SPRINT 8 PROGRAM
The Sprint 8 program is an anaerobic interval program designed to
build muscle, improve speed, and naturally increase the release of
Human Growth Hormone (HGH) in your body. Producing HGH through
exercise and a proper diet has been shown as an effective way to burn
fat and build lean muscle mass according to Phil Campbell, author of
Ready, Set, Go! Synergy Fitness. Please go to Mr. Campbell’s website
www.readysetgofitness.com for more details about this radical new
approach to fitness.
P REMIER
The SPRINT 8 program features intense sprint intervals followed by
recovery intervals. The program includes the following phases:
1. WARM-UP should gradually increase your heart rate and increase
respiration and blood flow to working muscles. The warm-up is
controlled by the user to meet your specific needs.
2. INTERVAL TRAINING starts immediately after the warm-up with a
30-second sprint interval. Seven recovery intervals of one minute
and 30 seconds will alternate with the eight 30-second sprint
intervals. The message display will prompt you to increase your
RPMs during the sprint interval and decrease RPMs during the
recovery interval. A difference of 30 to 50 RPM between sprint
interval and recovery interval is recommended for bikes. A
difference of 20 to 30 RPMs between sprint interval and recovery
interval is recommended for elliptical trainers.
3. COOL-DOWN helps return your body’s systems to resting levels. Less
demand is placed on your heart during recovery if an appropriate
cool-down is used following the exercise.
Due to the fact that this is a specialized training program, total workout time
is not displayed during the program. The interval time is displayed in the time
window instead. It takes only 20 minutes to complete the SPRINT 8 workout.
48
USING CUSTOM PROGRAMS
The CUSTOM USER program
allows five separate workouts to be
completed, saved, and then stored
for future use.
Setup for the CUSTOM USER
programs begins just as any other

change your resistance level the CUSTOM USER program will save these
changes throughout the program. Your settings will be saved to provide
an identical program that can be selected for your next exercise session.
PREMIER
At the end of the program you will be prompted to press ENTER to save.

HRT PROGRAMS
TARGET HRT
The TARGET HRT program is designed to maintain
your heart rate at 70% of your predicted maximum
heart rate. It is intended to improve efficiency
and endurance of your cardiovascular system by
working your heart, lungs and circulatory systems. This is a great workout
for anyone, but beginners may want to start lower and build their way up
to 70% of their predicted maximum heart rate.
HRT HILL
The HRT HILL program uses four different Target Heart Rates to build
cardiovascular strength and endurance. The resistance will adjust until your
rate reaches the Target Heart Rate for four separate hills. The hills will be
set at 65%, 70%, 75%, and 80% of your predicted maximum heart rate.
The program will keep you at each heart rate level for one minute from the
time the Target Heart Rate is reached. The program will repeat the series
of hills until the workout time is complete.
PREMIER
HRT INTERVAL
The HRT INTERVAL program is designed to increase aerobic endurance
and your overall fitness level, increase endurance of muscle fibers, and
increase the amount of calories burned in your exercise session. This
program consists of alternating effort and recovery intervals. The Target
Heart Rate for your effort interval will be 80% of your predicted maximum
heart rate, while the Target Heart Rate for your recovery intervals will be
70% of your predicted maximum heart rate. The two-minute effort interval
begins when you reach your Target Heart Rate for that particular interval.
The recovery interval duration depends on the amount of time it takes to
get to your recovery heart rate.
51
ALL HRT PROGRAMS
During the workout, the user will grasp the hand pulse sensors or wear
the telemetric chest strap to send their heart rate signal to a receiver in the
console. The console will continuously monitor the heart rate, adjusting the
resistance level to keep your heart rate within several beats of your Target
Heart Rate. By using the SCAN key, the heart rate feedback window
conveniently displays your Heart Rate and % of Max. Heart Rate to keep
you informed about your current heart rate. Each program will begin with
a two-minute warm-up. When the workout time has been completed, the
console will begin a five-minute cool-down. The user will be responsible for
adjusting resistance to meet their needs during the warm-up and cool-down.
ADJUSTINGTARGET HEART RATE
P REMIER
While exercising in one of the
HRT® programs, you may decide
the Target Heart Rate needs to be
adjusted. To adjust your Target
Heart Rate, use the UP s arrow
or DOWN t arrow. Press ENTER
to select.
52
USING HEART RATE TRAINING
WHAT IS HEART RATE TRAINING?
Heart Rate Training means exercising at an intensity that keeps you in your
ideal heart rate zone. Your personal heart rate training zone depends
on your fitness goal, such as weight loss, cardiovascular endurance, or
strength building. Refer to Page 66 for more information on heart rate
training zones. VISION FITNESS HRT® programs are set up to keep
you at an ideal heart rate based on your fitness goal. These programs
automatically adjust resistance based on your heart rate readings.
The Premier console features three programs (Target HRT, HRT Hill, and HRT
Interval) that offer the benefits of Heart Rate Training.
• These programs use the predicted maximum heart rate formula
(220 minus age) to determine your predicted maximum heart rate.
Some individuals have higher or lower maximum heart rates than
determined by this formula. The programs allow you to modify your
Target Heart Rate to achieve your personal goals.
HANDPULSEHEARTRATESENSORS
NOTE: The Contact Hand Pulse Sensors will work for the HRT® programs,
but it is recommended to use the telemetric chest strap for an uninterrupted
signal and ease of use.
PREMIER
The Contact Hand Pulse Sensors are
included on each product to monitor
your heart rate. To use, grasp the
sensors with a comfortable grip
during your workout. The console
will display your heart rate. Although
your signal will be displayed
immediately, it may take the system
a few seconds to zero in on your
actual heart rate.
53
TELEMETRICHEARTRATECHESTSTRAP(AVAILABLEWITHPREMIERCONSOLEONLY)
The wireless Telemetric Chest Strap uses a pair of electrodes on the
underside of the strap to send your heart rate signal to the console. Prior
to wearing the chest strap, moisten the two rubber electrode pads with
several drops of water. These electrodes must remain wet to provide an
accurate signal. We advise using the chest strap against your skin, but it
also functions through a thin layer of wet clothing.
STRAP PLACEMENT
P REMIER
Center the transmitter strap just below the breast or pectoral muscles,
directly over your sternum with the logo facing out. Adjust the elastic strap
so it is snug but comfortable enough for proper breathing.
54
TROUBLESHOOTING YOUR HEART RATE MONITOR CHEST STRAP
PROBLEM: No pulse reading appears.
SOLUTION: There may be a poor connection between the contact pads
and skin; remoisten the electrode pads.
SOLUTION: Transmitter is not properly positioned; reposition the chest strap.
SOLUTION: Verify that the distance between the transmitter and receiver
is not beyond the recommended range of 36 inches.
PROBLEM: There is an erratic pulse rate.
SOLUTION: Chest strap is too loose; readjust according to directions.
NOTE: It is possible that heart rate monitors will not function properly
on some people for a variety of reasons. It may be necessary to
experiment with the fit and position of the chest strap. Outside interference
sources such as computers, motors, electric dog fences, home security
systems, remote controls, CD players, fluorescent lights, etc., may cause
problems for heart rate monitors.

DEVELOPING A FITNESS PROGRAM
By purchasing this piece of VISION FITNESS exercise equipment, you
have made a commitment to exercise and now have the convenience of
exercising in your own home. Your new equipment offers the flexibility to
exercise at whatever time suits you best. It will be easier to maintain a
consistent exercise program that will help you achieve your fitness goals.
ACHIEVING YOUR FITNESS GOALS
GENERAL
An important step in developing a long-term fitness program is to determine
your goals. Is your primary goal to lose weight? Improve muscle tone?
Relieve stress? Prepare for the spring racing schedule? Knowing what your
goals are will help you develop a more successful exercise program. If
possible, try to define your personal goals in precise, measurable terms
over specific periods of time. Examples of these goals might include:
• Decrease your waistline by two inches over the next two months.
• Run the local 5K race this summer.
• Get 30 minutes of cardiovascular exercise at least five days per week.
• Improve your race time by two minutes over the next year.
• Move from walking a mile to jogging a mile within the next
three months.
The more specific the goal, the easier it will be to track your progress. If
your goals are long-term, divide them into monthly and weekly segments.
Long-term goals can lose some of the motivational benefits. Short-term
goals are easier to achieve and will allow you to see the progress you are
making. Every time you reach a goal, it is important to set a new goal.
This will lead to a healthier lifestyle and will provide the motivation that
you will need to move forward.
TRACK YOUR PROGRESS

Now that you have set your exercise goals, it is time to write them down
and make an exercise schedule that will help you achieve them. By
keeping a fitness diary, you will stay motivated and know where you are
in terms of reaching your goals. As time goes on, you will be able to
look back with pride to see how far you’ve come. For your convenience,
we have included exercise log sheets in the wellness tools section of our
website at www.visionfitness.com.
EXERCISE GUIDELINES
EXERCISE DURATION
A common question asked is, “how much exercise do I need?” We
recommend following the guidelines set up by the American College of
Sports Medicine (ACSM) for healthy aerobic activity.
• Exercise three to five days per week.
• Warm up for five to 10 minutes before aerobic activity.
• Maintain your exercise activity for 30 to 45 minutes.
• Gradually decrease the intensity of your workout, then stretch to
cool down during the last five to 10 minutes.
If weight loss is a major goal, participate in your aerobic activity at least
30 minutes for five days each week.
EXERCISE INTENSITY
The next question asked is, “how hard do I need to work out?” To reap the
most cardiovascular benefits from your workout, it is necessary to exercise
within a recommended intensity range. We recommend monitoring your
exercise heart rate to measure exercise intensity.

TARGET HEART RATE
Target Heart Rate is a percentage of your maximum heart rate. Target
Heart Rate will vary for each individual depending on age, current
level of conditioning, and personal fitness goals. Exercise heart rate
should range from 55% to 85% of your maximum heart rate. As a
point of reference, we use the predicted maximum heart rate formula of
(220 minus age) to determine your heart rate training zone. Please use the
following chart to determine your predicted Target Heart Rate.
EXAMPLE:
GENERAL
If you are a 30-year-old, your predicted maximum heart rate is 190 based
on the (220 minus age) formula.
220 – 30 = 190
Based on the chart above, your heart rate training zone is 104 to 161,
which is 55%–85% of 190.
