MANUAL: This program allows the user to have the complete control over their workout. The user can make adjustment on resistance level from 1 to 16.

HILL: This program takes the user through two hill profiles. Resistance changes are small during this program. This is a good program to get started with or for someone looking for a lower stress workout.

SPEED TRAINING: This program simulates interval training with more extreme levels of high and low
intensity levels.

RANDOM: This program randomly generates a new program profile every time it is chosen. This allows you to keep the workouts fresh and motivating. The RANDOM program will be different every time you use it.

INTERVAL: This program varies the intensity of the workout between low and high resistance to quickly raise and lower the heart rate thru a series of high & low profiles.

FATBURN: This program gets your heart rate fast and maintains it at 65% of your calculated
maximum heart rate with slight variation to provide optimal calories burn.

TARGET HEART RATE PROGRAMS: Heart rate control programs are designed to automatically change resistance to keep your heart rate at a predetermined level based on the selected Heart Rate program. Each Heart Rate program is designed with a specific goal in mind.

The preset Heart Rate Programs are TARGET HEART RATE, HR FATBURN, HR CARDIO, HR HILL, HR INTERVAL, % (TARGET HEART RATE)

% Target Heart Rate allows the user to select a Target Heart Rate (See section titled MONITORING YOUR HEART RATE for more information) that would like to be maintained during the exercise session.

HR 80% (CARDIO): HR 80% maintains the Target Heart Rate at 80% of the Maximum Heart Rate by automatically adjusting resistance levels. This program provides for a high intensity, cardiovascular workout.

HR 65% (FAT BURN): HR 65% maintains the Target Heart Rate at 65% of the Maximum Heart Rate by automatically adjusting the resistance levels. This program provides the ultimate fat burning workout.

HR 60-85% (HILL): HR Hill simulates hill training by alternates between 60% and 85% of your Max HR.

HR 60-85% (INTERVAL): The HR INTERVAL program alternates between 60% and 85% of your Max HR. This
program provides an excellent fat burn and cardiovascular workout.

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 (AHA) defines this target as 60% -75% percent of the Maximum Heart Rate.
The Maximum Heart Rate may be roughly calculated by subtracting the user’s age from 220.

The Maximum Heart Rate and aerobic capacity naturally decreases as the user ages. This may vary from one person to another, but use this number to find your approximate effective target zone. For example, the Maximum Heart Rate for an average 40 year-old is 180 bpm. The target heart rate zone is 60%-75% of 180 or 108-135 bpm. See the Fitness Safety
section.
