GUIDELINES
This product is for use on a nominal 110-volt circuit
and has a grounding plug that looks like the illustration
to the right. This product must be used on a dedicated
circuit. To determine if you are on a dedicated circuit,
shut off the power to that circuit and observe if any other
devices lose power. If so, move devices to a different
circuit. Note: There are usually multiple outlets on one
circuit. It is recommended that the elliptical be used
with a 15 amp circuit for optimal performance.

ADJUST HEIGHT
Here are just a few of the health benefits of exercise:
LOCK ADJUSTMENT
INCLINE OPERATION
If the stop button is pressed to pause the program, the incline motor will remain at its current height. To
return the incline to 0%, press start and change the incline to 0% before dismounting. If the stop button is
held for 3 seconds to reset the console, the incline will return to 0%.
BEFORE
YOU BEGIN
The key to reaping these benefits is to develop an exercise habit. Your new
elliptical will help you eliminate obstacles that prevent you from exercising.
Inclement weather and darkness won't interfere with your workout when you
use your elliptical in the comfort of your home. This guide provides you with
basic information for using and enjoying your new machine.

LOCATION OF THE ELLIPTICAL
Your programmable elliptical is powered by a power supply. The power must be plugged into the power jack,
which is located in the front of the machine near the STABILIZER TUBE. The 4.0 AE has its power switch in the
same location. The 3.0 AE has it’s power switch on the back of the console. Make sure they are in the
“ON” position.
Do not operate the elliptical if the power cord or plug is damaged.
If the elliptical appears to not be working properly, do not use the elliptical.
GFFU
ELLIPTICAL
OPERATION
Place the elliptical on a level surface. There should be 6 feet of clearance
behind the elliptical, 3 feet on each side and one foot in front for the power
cord (See diagram to the right). Do not place the elliptical in any area that
will block any vent or air openings. The elliptical should not be located in a
garage, covered patio, near water or outdoors.
MOVING
Your elliptical has a pair of transport wheels built
into the FRONT STABILIZER TUBE. To move, first
remove the power supply and firmly grasp the
REAR STABILIZER BAR, carefully lift and roll.

FOOT POSITIONING
Your elliptical offers a variety of foot positions. Moving your foot to the forward most position of the foot pad
increases your step height, which will create a feel similar to a step machine. Placing your foot toward the back
of the foot pad decreases your step height and creates more of a gliding feel, similar to a smooth walk or run.
Your elliptical also allows you to pedal both forward and backwards to offer a variation to your workout and to
focus on other major leg muscle groups such as your hamstrings and calves.

INTRODUCTION
TARGET HEART RATE ZONE CHART
BEFORE
YOU BEGIN
For aerobic exercise benefits, it’s recommended that you exercise from between 24 and 60 minutes per session.
But start slowly and gradually increase your exercise times. If you’ve been sedentary during the past year, it may
be a good idea to keep your exercise times to as little as five minutes initially. Your body will need time to adjust
to the new activity. If your goal is weight loss, a longer exercise session at lower intensities has been found to
be most effective. A workout time of 48 minutes or more is recommended for best weight loss results.
ELLIPTICAL
OPERATION
HOW HARD? (Intensity of Workouts)
How hard you workout is also determined by your goals. If you use your machine to prepare for a 5K workout,
you will probably work out at a higher intensity than if your goal is general fitness. Regardless of your long
term goals, always begin an exercise program at low intensity. Aerobic exercise does not have to be painful to
be beneficial! There are two ways to measure your exercise intensity. The first is by monitoring your heart rate
(using the grip pulse handlebars or a wireless chest transmitter (for E1200 only) - may be sold separately), and
the second is by evaluating your perceived exertion level (this is simpler than it sounds!).
CONDITIONING
GUIDELINES
IMPORTANT
PRECAUTIONS
ASSEMBLY
Target Heart Rate Zone tells you
the number of times per minute
your heart needs to beat to
achieve a desired workout effect.
It is represented as a percentage
of the maximum number of times
your heart can beat per minute.
Target Zone will vary for each
individual, depending on age,
current level of conditioning,
and personal fitness goals. The
American Heart Association
recommends working-out at a
Target Heart Rate Zone of between
60% and 75% of your maximum
heart rate. A beginner will want to
workout in the 60% range while
a more experienced exerciser will
want to workout in the 70-75%
range. See chart for reference.

The American Heart Association recommends that you exercise at least 3 to 4 days per week to maintain
cardiovascular fitness. If you have other goals such as weight or fat loss, you will achieve your goal faster with
more frequent exercise. Whether it’s 3 days or 6 days, remember that your ultimate goal should be to make
exercise a lifetime habit. Many people are successful staying with a fitness program if they set aside a specific
time of day to exercise. It doesn’t matter whether it’s in the morning before breakfast, during lunch hour or while
watching the evening news. What’s more important is that it’s a time that allows you to keep a schedule, and a
time when you won’t be interrupted. To be successful with your fitness program, you have to make it a priority in
your life. So decide on a time, pull out your day planner and pencil in your exercise times for the next month!

TROUBLESHOOTING
& MAINTENANCE
TROUBLESHOOTING
& MAINTENANCE
A simple way to gauge your exercise intensity is to evaluate your perceived exertion level. While exercising, if you
are too winded to maintain a conversation without gasping, you are working out too hard. A good rule of thumb
is to work to the point of exhilaration, not exhaustion. If you cannot catch your breath, it’s time to slow down.
Always be aware of these warning signs of overexertion.
Always consult your physician before beginning an exercise program.

INTRODUCTION
IMPORTANT
PRECAUTIONS
The first 2 to 5 minutes of a workout should be devoted to warming up. The warm-up will limber your
muscles and prepare them for more strenuous exercise. Make sure that you warm-up on your product at a
slow pace. The warm up should gradually bring your heart rate into your Target Heart Rate Zone.
COOL DOWN
5*14
ASSEMBLY
Never stop exercising suddenly! A cool-down period of 3-5 minutes allows your heart to readjust to the
decreased demand. Make sure that your cool down period consists of a very slow pace to allow your heart
rate to lower. After the cool-down, repeat the stretching exercises listed above to loosen and relax your
muscles.

WARM UP
An important step in developing a long term fitness program is to determine your goals. Is your primary
goal for exercising to lose weight? Improve muscle? Reduce stress? Prepare for the spring racing schedule?
Knowing what your goals are will help you develop a more successful exercise program. Below are some
common exercise goals:
ELLIPTICAL
OPERATION
Before using your product, it is best to take a few minutes to do a few gentle stretching exercises. Stretching
prior to exercise will improve flexibility and reduce chances of exercise related injury. Ease into each of these
stretches with a slow gentle motion. Do not stretch to the point of pain. Make sure not to bounce while doing
these stretches.
THE IMPORTANCE OF WARM UP & COOL DOWN
• Weight Loss - lower intensity, longer duration workouts
• Improve Body Shape and Tone - interval workouts, alternate between high and low intensities
• Increased Energy Level - more frequent daily workouts
• Improved Sports Performance - high intensity workouts
• Improved Cardiovascular Endurance - moderate intensity, longer duration workouts

If possible try to define your personal goals in precise, measurable terms, and then put your goals in writing.
The more specific you can be, the easier it will be to track your progress. If your goals are long term, divide
them up into monthly and weekly segments. Longer term goals can lose some of the immediate motivation
benefits. Short term goals are easier to achieve. Your console provides you with several readouts that can
be used to record your progress. You can track Distance, Calories or Time.

INTRODUCTION
C O M M O N P R O DU C T Q U E S T I O N S
WHY IS THE ELLIPTICAL I HAD DELIVERED LOUDER THAN THE ONE AT THE STORE?
BEFORE
YOU BEGIN
All fitness products seem quieter in a large store showroom because there is generally more background
noise than in your home. Also, there will be less reverberation on a carpeted concrete floor than on a wood
overlay floor. Sometimes a heavy rubber mat will help reduce reverberation through the floor. If a fitness
product is placed close to a wall, there will be more reflected noise.
HOW LONG WILL THE DRIVE BELT LAST?
The computer modeling we have done indicated virtually thousands of maintenance free hours. Belts are
now commonly used in far more demanding applications such as motorcycle drives.
ELLIPTICAL
OPERATION
CAN I MOVE THE TRAINER EASILY ONCE IT IS ASSEMBLED?
Your elliptical has a pair of transport wheels built into the front legs. It is easy to move your elliptical by
rolling it on the front transport wheels. It is important that you place your elliptical in a comfortable and
inviting room. Your elliptical is designed to use minimal floor space. Many people will place their ellipticals
facing the TV or a picture window. If at all possible, avoid putting your elliptical in a unfinished basement.
To make exercise a desirable daily activity for you, the elliptical should be in a comfortable setting.
CONDITIONING
GUIDELINES
CAN I PEDAL BACKWARDS ON MY ELLIPTICAL?
Your elliptical allows you to pedal both forward and backwards to exercise and strengthen a wider range
of muscles.
IMPORTANT
PRECAUTIONS
HOW DO I CLEAN MY ELLIPTICAL?
ASSEMBLY
Clean with soap and water cleaners only. Never use solvents on plastic parts.
Cleanliness of your elliptical and its operating environment will keep maintenance problems
and service calls to a minimum. For this reason, AFG recommends that the following preventive
maintenance schedule be followed.
AFTER EACH USE (DAILY)
Turn off the elliptical by unplugging the power cord from the wall outlet
• Wipe down the elliptical with a damp cloth. Never use solvents, as they can cause damage to the
elliptical.
• Inspect the power cord. If the power cord is damaged, contact AFG.
• Make sure the power cord is not underneath the elliptical or in any other area where it can become
pinched or cut.
WARNING
BEFORE
YOU BEGIN
ASSEMBLY
Our ellipticals are some of the quietest available because they use belt drives and friction free magnetic
resistance. We use the highest grade bearings and belts to minimize noise. However, because the resistance
system itself is so quiet, you will occasionally hear other slight mechanical noises. Unlike older, louder
technologies, there are no fans, friction belts, or alternator noises to mask these sounds on our ellipticals.
These mechanical noises, which may or may not be intermittent, are normal and are caused by the transfer
of significant amounts of energy to a rapidly spinning flywheel. All bearings, belts and other rotating parts
will generate some noise which will transmit through the casing and frame. It is also normal for these
sounds to change slightly during a workout and over time because of thermal expansion of the parts.
We use sealed bearings throughout our ellipticals so lubrication is not needed. The most important
maintenance steps are to wipe perspiration off the unit after each use and periodically checking the
assembly bolts for tightness.
To remove power from the elliptical, the power cord must be disconnected from
the wall outlet.
