28. E XTREME H EART R ATE TM 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 TM sensors throughout the work- out. When setting up the workout, the user enters a target heart rate. After a standard three-minute warm-up, the intensity in- creases, 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. The program does not proceed to a new heart rate goal until the user reaches the current goal. 27

18. T HE O PTIONAL P OLAR ® T ELEMETRY H EART R ATE C HEST S TRAP The Lifecycle Bike 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. How- ever, 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 these sensor signals for calculating the heart rate instead of those transmitted by the Polar telemetry heart rate chest strap.

5. This Operation Manual describes the functions of the following product: Club Series Recumbent Lifecycle® Exercise Bike (CSLR) See "Specifications" in this manual for product specific features. Statement of Purpose: The Life Fitness Lifecycle exercise bike is a machine that simulates the movements of riding a bi- cycle at various speeds and levels of resistance. CAUTION: Life Fitness STRONGLY recommends seeing a physician for a complete medical exam before undertaking an exercise program, particularly if the user has a family history of high blood pressure or heart disease, or is over the age of 45, or smokes, has high cholesterol, is obese, or has not exercised regularly in the past year. If, at any time while exercising, the user experiences faintness, dizziness, pain, or shortness of breath, he or she must stop immediately. MISE EN GARDE: Life Fitness conseille VIVEMENT de consulter un médecin pour subir un examen médi- cal complet avant de commencer tout programme d'exercice, et tout particulièrement si l'utilisateur a des antécédents familiaux d'hypertension ou de troubles cardiaques, ou s'il a plus de 45 ans, s'il fume, s'il a du cholestérol, s'il est obèse ou n'a pas fait d'exercice régulièrement depuis un an. Si, pendant l'utilisation de l'appareil, l'utilisateur ressent un malaise, des vertiges, des douleurs ou des difficultés à respirer, il doit cesser immédiatement. 4
30. F IT T EST The Life Fitness Fit Test program is another exclusive feature of this product. The Fit Test workout estimates cardiovascu- lar 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 VO 2 (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 exer- cise physiologists generally regard this test as a good measure of aerobic capacity. P lease note that the estimated VO 2 max scores achieved will be 10 percent to 15 percent lower on stationary exercise bikes than those achieved on other Life Fitness cardiovascular equipment. Stationary cycling has a higher rate of isolated muscle fatigue of the quadriceps when compared to walking/running on a treadmill, climbing on a stairclimber, or utilizing a bike. This higher rate of fatigue corre- sponds to lower levels of estimated VO 2 max scores. To set up the Fit Test: • Begin pedaling. • Press the WORKOUTS PLUS 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 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 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 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 ARROW keys to enter the corresponding level. After the five-minute FIT TEST is completed, a FIT TEST score will be displayed.

26. 25 H EART R ATE H ILL TM This program combines the standard HILL workout profile with the concept of Heart Rate Zone Training. The default tar- get 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 is always defined as 65% 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 r e- peats 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 exercise bike automatically goes into pause mode. The program does not proceed to a new heart rate goal until the user reaches the current goal. 117 BPM 85% THR 65% HRmax 70% HRmax 75% HRmax HEART RATE HILL Workout Profile 80% HRmax Hill Hill Hill Valley Valley Valley 65% HRmax 65% HRmax 65% HRmax 117BPM 117BPM 117BPM 126 BPM 135 BPM User Example: 80 (40 year old / 144 recommended BPM) percent of theoretical maximum (HR ) max 144 BPM
27. H EART R ATE I NTERVAL TM 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 exercise bike automatically goes into pause mode. The program does not pro- ceed to a new heart rate goal until the user reaches the current goal.

9. 8 H OW TO A DJUST THE P EDAL S TRAPS The bike pedal straps keep the user’s shoes on the pedals during a workout. The straps should fit comfortably, but they also should be tight enough to prevent shoes from slipping at any point in the pedaling rotation. Before working out, a user should test and adjust the tightness of the straps. The safety straps on the foot pedals can be adjusted to fit a variety of shoe sizes. The straps are held in place by two knobs that extend from either side of each pedal. The “inner” knob extends sideways, that is, toward the bike. The “outer” knob extends downward. The ends of each strap are perforated with slots that fit tightly over the knobs. The “inner” end of each strap is perforated with two slots, and the “outer” segment of the strap is perforated with a row of slots. To tighten or loosen a strap, grasp the outer end, and pull it back, away from the knob, until the strap slides off. Pull the strap out through the outer loop on the pedal. Rest the foot on the pedal, and wrap the strap over the foot to determine the desired length. Thread the strap through the outer loop on the pedal, tuck it under the pedal, select the appropriate slot, and pull that slot down over the knob, until the top of the knob pops through the slot. A click indicates that the strap is locked into place. S TARTING U P THE B IKE C ONSOLE When a user begins pedaling on the Lifecycle exercise bike, the unit’s Auto-Start feature powers up the console, causing the console display to light up and the MESSAGE CENTER to flash a prompt: “SELECT WORKOUT USING ARROW KEYS OR PRESS QUICK START.” If the user does not make a selection in 20 seconds, the console automatically starts a MANUAL workout. For information on setting up a workout, see Section 4.2, titled Using the Workouts . If the user stops pedaling for more than 15 seconds, the console shuts down. Alternately, the user may press the START key to power up the console. U SING THE P OWER A SSIST O PTION The Lifecycle exercise bike’s optional Power Assist feature makes it possible for the console to be powered by an external electrical source, eliminating the need to pedal at a minimum speed to supply constant power to the console. With this op- tion, users who wish to ride the bike for rehabilitative exercise may pedal at a rate below the minimum without losing con- sole power. Enabling the Power Assist option requires an optional kit. To order the kit, contact Life Fitness Customer Support Services. See page one for contact information. When the kit is installed, the power connector is located in front of the rear stabilizer bar, in the shroud opening, on the un - derside of the bike.

31. I f you make an error when entering any Fit Test data, you can correct it by pressing CLEAR, inputting the correct informa- tion 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 rec- ommended) • 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. The tables below list fit test results Life Fitness developed this rating scale based on VO 2 max percentile distributions referenced in American College of Sports Medicine's Guidelines for Exercise Testing and Prescription (8th E. 2010).

29. W ATTS This workout targets a rate of effort equal to a certain number of Watts. A Watt is a unit of power that measures the amount of mechanical work required to operate a device, such as a Lifecycle exercise bike. It is roughly equal to .25 calo- ries per hour. The workout program automatically alters the intensity level to maintain the appropriate rate of effort. By de- fault, this workout is turned off. For information on making it available, see Section 5, titled System Menu . METS This workout targets a rate of effort equal to a certain number of METs. A MET is a unit of measurement used to express the metabolic rate of work (oxygen consumption per unit of body weight) required to perform a task. One MET is approximately equal to a person’s metabolism when seated and relaxed. By default, this workout is turned off. For information on making it available, see Section 5, titled System Menu . A EROBICS T RAINER In this workout, the MESSAGE CENTER continuously prompts the user to switch between a high pedaling speed and a low pedaling speed. These speed intervals alternate in a pattern that promotes a “build-up” in the intensity of the workout, followed by a “build-down” in intensity. The workout consists of 32 intervals, which are divided into groups of four. In the first group, the user encounters one fast interval followed by three slow intervals. The second group features two fast intervals followed by two slow intervals. The third group features three fast intervals followed by one slow interval. The fourth group, which is the most intense point of the workout, features four fast intervals. Afterward, the workout decreases in intensity, concluding with a group of four, consecutive, slow intervals. See the chart below: The length of the intervals depends on the workout duration selected by the user.

8. 1.2 S ETUP Read the entire Operation Manual before setting up the Lifecycle exercise bike. W HERE TO P LACE THE L IFECYCLE E XERCISE B IKE Following all safety instructions in Section 1.1, move the bike to the location in which it will be used. See Section 7, titled Specifications, for the dimensions of the footprint. Allow a distance of 16 inches, or 41 centimeters, between the widest part of the bike and other objects on either side. Allow a distance of 3 feet, or 1 meter, between the front or rear of the bik e to any other objects. H OW TO S TABILIZE THE L IFECYCLE E XERCISE B IKE After placing the bike in position, check the unit’s stability by attempting to rock it from side to side. Any slight rocking i ndi- cates that the unit must be leveled. Determine which foot is not resting completely on the floor. Loosen the jam nut (A) with an open-end 9/16-inch wrench, and rotate the stabilizing foot (B) to lower it. Verify that the bike is stable, and repeat the adjustment as necessary until the unit no longer rocks. Lock the adjustment by tightening the jam nut against the sta- bilizer bar. H OW TO A DJUST THE S EAT A properly adjusted seat is extremely important in any bike-oriented exercise activity and the Recumbent Lifecycle Exer- cise Bike is no exception. If the seat is too close, excessive strain will be placed on the knees and quadriceps muscles; if the seat is too far, the resulting reaching action will irritate the feet, ankles, hips and knees. Sit on the seat and place the balls of the feet on the pedals. An optimum position will allow movement through the bottom of the stroke without locking the knees or shifting in the seat. The knees should have a slight bend at the point of fullest leg extension. If the seat needs to be adjusted, lift the spring-loaded adjusting han- dle located on the right, front side of the seat. Slide the seat forward or backward as necessary to the proper position and release the han- dle to complete engagement. Gently slide the seat forward and back- ward a small distance to ensure it is locked into place. Check the seat distance again and re-adjust it if necessary. CAUTION: Do not attempt to adjust the seat while pedaling the bike. Doing so, or failing to engage the seat handle may result in an uncomfortable workout or cause injury.

16. 3 H EART R ATE Z ONE T RAINING ® 3.1 W HY H EART R ATE Z ONE T RAINING ® E XERCISE ? 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. The Life Fitness Lifecycle exercise bike features exclusive workouts designed to take full advantage of the benefits of Heart Rate Zone Training+ exercise: • FAT BURN • HEART RATE HILL TM • EXTREME HEART RATE TM • CARDIO • HEART RATE INTERVAL TM 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 ARROW keys. To switch between programs during a workout, use the CHANGE WORKOUTS key. The Heart Rate Zone Training® workout programs measure heart rate. Wear the optional Polar® telemetry heart rate chest strap, or grip the Lifepulse TM sensors, to enable the bike’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. HR Max = 206.9 - (0.67 * age) Note: Reference the above chart for Theoretical Maximum Heart Rates and Target Heart Rates.

19. 18 4 T HE W ORKOUTS 4.1 W ORKOUT O VERVIEWS The following workouts are pre-programmed for the Lifecycle Bike. ► QUICK START is the fastest way to begin exercising. After the QUICK START key is pressed, a constant-level workout begins. The intensity level does not change automatically. ► MANUAL is a constant effort workout in which the user can change the intensity level at any time. ► RANDOM is an interval training workout of constantly changing intensity levels that occur in no regular pattern or progression. ► FAT BURN is a low-intensity workout for burning a higher percentage of calories from fat. The user wears a Polar telemetry heart rate chest strap, or grasps the Lifepulse TM sensors continuously. The program adjusts the intensity level, based on the actual heart rate, to maintain the rate at 65% of the theoretical maximum. ► CARDIO is a higher intensity workout for more fit users, maximizing cardiovascular benefits and total calories burned. The user wears a Polar telemetry heart rate chest strap or grasps the Lifepulse TM sensors continuously. The program adjusts the intensity level, based on the actual heart rate, to maintain the rate at 80% of the theoretical maximum. ► HILL is an interval training workout. Intervals are periods of intense aerobic exercise separated by regular periods of lower-intensity exercise. ► HEART RATE HILL TM takes the user through three different hills based on the target heart rate. The user wears a Polar telemetry heart rate chest strap or grasps the Lifepulse TM sensors continuously. ► HEART RATE INTERVAL TM alternates between a hill and a valley based on the target heart rate. The user wears a Polar telemetry heart rate chest strap or grasps the Lifepulse TM sensors continuously. ► EXTREME HEART RATE TM is an intense workout for more experienced users. It is designed to get the heart rate up and down as quickly as possible. The user wears a Polar telemetry heart rate chest strap or grasps the Lifepulse TM sensors continuously. ► 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.
12. 11 2.2 C ONSOLE O VERLAY D ESCRIPTIONS 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 work- out, which requires the use of a Polar ® telemetry heart rate chest strap or the Lifepulse system sensors, the WORK- OUT 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 automati- cally 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 dis- plays statistics about the progress of the workout: • Level: the programmed intensity level. It is displayed continuously unless the heart rate is being measured, in which case, Heart Rate is displayed. • Heart Rate: the detected heart rate if the user is wearing the chest strap or grasping the Lifepulse system sen- sors. If the heart rate is not being measured during a workout, then Level is displayed instead. • Distance: the total distance traveled in miles (or kilometers if enabled). • RPM (Revolutions per Minute): the pedaling speed or rate. • Calories: the number of calories burned since beginning the workout, alternates with Time. • Time: the time elapsed since the beginning of the workout; alternates with Calories. If configured to do so, the MESSAGE CENTER displays other values each time the intensity level changes during the workout: • Calories per Hour: the rate of calories burned per hour. OR • 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 meta- bolic equivalent; one MET is approximately equal to the metabolism of a person at rest. C. DISPLAY LOCK: During a workout, the MESSAGE CENTER alternately displays TIME and CALORIES. Pressing the DISPLAY LOCK key when the MESSAGE CENTER displays one of these statistics forces the MESSAGE CENTER to display that statistic throughout the workout. Pressing DISPLAY LOCK again allows the MESSAGE CENTER to re- sume toggling between both statistics. D. WORKOUTS PLUS: When prompted by the MESSAGE CENTER to select a workout, press this key to select WATTS (when enabled), METs (when enabled), LIFE FITNESS FIT TEST, MILITARY FIT TEST (when enabled), AEROBICS TRAINER, INTERVAL, AROUND THE WORLD, CASCADES, FOOTHILLS, SPEED TRAINING, or KILIMANJARO programs. E. CHANGE WORKOUTS: Press this key to change workout programs during a workout (on the fly). F. BIKE MODE: Press this key to activate the Bike workout mode in which the rate of calories burned and total distance traveled increase automatically as the user increases the pedaling speed. G. ARROW keys: When prompted by the MESSAGE CENTER to select a workout, use these keys to scroll through dis- played choices. When setting up a workout, use these keys to change workout parameters displayed on the console, such as length of workout, weight, age, target heart rate, and intensity level. During a workout, pressing the ARROW keys changes intensity levels or target heart rate. H. CONSTANT CAL./HOUR: Press this key to activate this alternate workout mode, which enables a user to maintain a consistent rate of calories burned per hour. I. ENTER key: Press this key to confirm entries of workout setup values, as displayed in the MESSAGE CENTER. J. QUICK START key: Press this key to begin a manual workout immediately, without having to select a workout pro- gram. Once the workout is in progress, use the ARROW keys to change the intensity level or workout duration as de- sired.
24. 4.3 W ORKOUT D ESCRIPTIONS Q UICK S TART 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 and remains the same unless manually changed. To change the level, use the ARROW keys to enter a higher or lower level number. M ANUAL The MANUAL program sets an intensity level that does not change automatically. While the workout is in progress, raise or lower the intensity level as desired using the ARROW keys. R ANDOM The RANDOM program creates a terrain of hills and valleys that varies with each workout. More than one million different patterns are possible. F AT B URN The FAT BURN workout is designed to maintain a user’s heart rate at 65% of the theoretical maximum(HRmax) for opti- mal results. Throughout the workout, the user wears a Polar telemetry heart rate chest strap or grasps the Lifepulse TM 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 Bike to reach and maintain the target. This system elimi- nates over-training and under-training, and it maximizes the aerobic benefits of exercise by using the body's fat stores for fuel. C ARDIO The CARDIO workout is virtually identical to FAT BURN , however the target heart rate is calculated at 80% of the theoret- ical maximum (HRmax). The higher target promotes cardiovascular improvement by placing a heavier workload on the heart muscle. S PORT T RAINING TM W ORKOUT 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 R ESISTANCE In this workout, the gradual changes in resistance are extremely subtle, lowering perceived exertion. The changes in re- sistance 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 dur- ing the setup. The higher the level selected, the higher the intensity at the entry point, which is the beginning of the work- out, 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. 0% Time 100% Time 75% Time EZ Resistance Workout Profile (Entry point) (Peak) (End point) 23
25. H ILL The Life Fitness-patented HILL workout offers a variety of configurations for interval training. Intervals are periods of in- tense 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 cardiorespira- tory 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 TM 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 by-products 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. Th is pattern repeats until the workout is completed. 24
20. 19 The following workouts are accessed by pressing the WORKOUTS PLUS key. ► 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. ► LIFE FITNESS FIT TEST estimates cardiovascular fitness and can be used to monitor improvements in endurance every 4-6 weeks. ► MILITARY FITNESS TEST is similar to the FIT TEST workout, except that this program is based upon a specific prede- fined protocol. The available test is: • AIR FORCE PHYSICAL READINESS TEST (PRT) - (U.S. MILITARY) ► WATTS targets a rate of effort equal to a certain number of Watts. By default, this workout is turned off. For informa- tion on making it available, see Section 5, titled System Menu. ► METs targets a rate of effort equal to a certain number of METs. By default, this workout is turned off. For informa- tion on making it available, see Section 5, titled System Menu . ► AEROBICS TRAINER is a workout in which the MESSAGE CENTER prompts the user to switch continuously be- tween a high and low pedaling speed. The speed intervals alternate in a pattern that promotes a build-up in the in- tensity of the workout, followed by a build-down in intensity.
32. M ILITARY F ITNESS T EST The Lifecycle ® Exercise Bike features an Air Force Physical Readiness Tests (PRT). This test is similar to the fit test work- out, except that it does not have a preset time goal. To begin an Air Force PRT: l Press the WORKOUTS PLUS button repeatedly until the AIR FORCE PRT appears in the message center and press ENTER to select the AIR FORCE PRT option. l The message center will prompt for a user weight (ENTER WEIGHT). Enter a weight between 75 - 400 pounds using the ARROW keys. Press ENTER to accept the weight. l The message center will prompt for a user height (ENTER HEIGHT). Enter a height between 36 - 90 inches using the ARROW keys. Press ENTER to accept the height. l The message center will next prompt for a user age (ENTER AGE). Enter an age between 17 - 70 years using the ARROW keys. Press ENTER to accept the age. l The message center will next prompt for a user gender (SELECT GENDER). Using the ARROW keys, select a gen- der. Press ENTER to accept the gender selection. l The message center will next prompt for a user Fitness Level ("Do you perform Aerobic Activity at least 3 times per week"). Using the ARROW keys, select 'YES' or 'NO'. Press ENTER to accept the selection. The Air Force PRT begins after the user selects their Fitness Level and presses ENTER. During the PRT the user must maintain 50-80 RPM. If the user pedals outside this range, a warning message is displayed. If the user continues to pedal outside this range for more than 10 seconds, the test is terminated. If the user's heart rate exceeds 85% of their theoreti- cal maximum heart rate, the test is also terminated. The Air Force PRT requires a user's heart rate throughout the test. Heart rate is recorded every minute, and if it is not detected, the test will terminate. The PRT starts with a 2 minute warm- up. After this warm-up, an initial wattage setting is determined from the user's input data. The PRT then monitors a user's heart rate and determines if more resistance is needed. After 6 minutes at a constant wattage, the exercise bike will try to calculate a score. 4.4 U SING M Y W ORKOUTS P ERSONAL P ROGRAMS The MY WORKOUTS personal programs feature makes it possible to pre-set up to seven workouts with personal setup information, such as age or duration, and then store the workouts in the console memory.

22. 21 S ELECTING AND A DJUSTING THE I NTENSITY L EVEL When prompted by the MESSAGE CENTER, use the ARROW keys to increase or decrease the displayed intensity level or target heart rate to the desired value and press ENTER. Adjust the level as needed or desired during the workout. • Intensity level: The Bike provides a selection of 20 intensity levels. The intensity 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 be increased. • 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 heart rate chest strap or the Lifepulse system sensors; it uses this data to adjust the resistance. Manually raising the rate increases the intensity of the cardiovascular ex- ercise. S ELECTING A W ORKOUT M ODE Two workout mode options on the Lifecycle exercise bike feature alternate ways to vary workouts. • Bike Mode : This workout mode simulates the experience of riding a real bicycle. The rate of calories burned and total distance travelled increase automatically as the user increases the pedaling speed. This mode can be used with all workouts, except for FAT BURN , CARDIO , HEART RATE HILL , HEART RATE INTERVAL , EXTREME HEART RATE , WATTS, METS, FIT TEST, and AIR FORCE PRT . To select Bike mode, press the BIKE MODE key. • Constant-Calories-Per-Hour Mode : This workout mode enables a user to maintain a consistent rate of calories burned per hour. As the pedaling speed increases, the resistance level automatically decreases. As the pedaling speed decreases, the resistance level automatically increases. This mode can be used with all workouts. To se- lect it, press the CONSTANT CAL./HR. key. If the user selects a FAT BURN , CARDIO , HEART RATE HILL , HEART RATE INTERVAL , EXTREME HEART RATE , WATTS, METS, FIT TEST, or AIR FORCE PRT workout during the setup, the default mode is Constant-Calories-Per- Hour. For all other workouts, the default mode is Bike. The user may select or change a mode during a workout setup or during a workout. S WITCHING W ORKOUTS “O N - 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,” simply press the CHANGE WORKOUT key for the desired new workout. This feature is available for all workouts except for AROUND THE WORLD, KILIMAN- JARO, INTERVAL, CASCADES, SPEED TRAINING, FOOTHILLS, FIT TEST and AIR FORCE PRT workouts . P AUSING W ORKOUTS To pause a workout, simply stop pedaling. To resume, resume pedaling and press the ENTER key when prompted TO CONTINUE WORKOUT. E NDING W ORKOUTS E ARLY 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 work- out.
