HOW TO SET UP THE RECUMBENT BIKE

HOW TO MOVE AND LEVEL THE RECUMBENT BIKE

Before moving the recumbent bike, make sure that the power cord is unplugged. Note: If a CATV cable is connected to the recumbent bike, it may be necessary to disconnect the cable if the recumbent bike will be moved far.

Due to the size and weight of the recumbent bike, moving it requires two persons. While one person lifts the indicated end, firmly hold the handlebar and tip the recumbent bike forward until it rolls on the front wheels. Carefully move the recumbent bike to the desired location and then lower it back to the level position. CAUTION: To reduce the risk of injury, use extreme caution while moving the recumbent bike. Do not attempt to move the recumbent bike over uneven surfaces.

If the recumbent bike rocks slightly during use, turn the leveling feet under the rear of the frame until the rocking motion is eliminated.

HOW TO ADJUST THE SEAT

To adjust the seat, lift the seat latch, slide the seat forward or backward to the desired position, and then push the seat latch back down.

HOW TO CONNECT THE POWER CORD

If the recumbent bike has a Basic console, it can be used with or without the included power cord. If the recumbent bike has a Workout TV console, the power cord must be used for the TV to be operated.

To use the power cord, first plug one end of the power cord into the jack on the front of the recumbent bike. Plug the other end of the power cord into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.

HOW TO CONNECT A CATV CABLE

If your recumbent bike has a Workout TV console, a CATV cable must be connected to the recumbent bike for cable TV stations to be viewed.

Locate the cable jack on the front of the recumbent bike. Connect the CATV cable to the cable jack.

A satellite receiver, VCR, or DVD player can also be connected to the recumbent bike. Connect a CATV cable from the coaxial output

on your equipment (usually labeled TV OUT or RF OUT) to the cable jack. Note: Audio/video equipment without coaxial outputs

(some satellite receivers and DVD players) will require an RF modulator to operate with the recumbent bike. RF modulators and external CATV cables are not available from FreeMotion Fitness, but are available at electronics stores. See the owner's manual included with the equipment you wish to connect to see whether an RF modulator is needed.

HOW TO UPGRADE THE CONSOLE

Your recumbent bike has been pre-configured to operate with a Basic console and a Workout TV console (see the drawings below). To learn about the features of the Basic console, see page 9. For information about the state-of-the-art Workout TV console, see page 23.

To upgrade your console and expand the capabilities of your recumbent bike whenever you choose, simply contact your local FreeMotion Fitness Sales Representative or call FreeMotion Fitness toll-free at 1-877-363-8449.

Note: If there is a sheet of clear plastic on the console, remove the clear plastic.

FEATURES OF THE CONSOLE

The Basic console offers an impressive array of features to help you get the most from your exercise.

When the manual mode of the console is selected, the resistance of the pedals can be changed with a touch of a button. As you exercise, the console will provide continuous exercise feedback. You can even measure your heart rate using the built-in pulse sensor.

A variety of preset workout programs is also offered. Each program automatically controls the resistance of the pedals as it guides you through an effective workout.

In addition, the console offers three pulse programs that adjust the resistance of the pedals to keep your heart rate near target levels during your workouts, and a unique fitness test program that measures your VO2 max level. Note: The pulse programs and the fitness test program require the use of a Polar® -compatible chest pulse sensor (not included).

To use the QUICK START mode of the console, follow the steps beginning on page 10. To use a preset program, see pages 12 to 16. To use a pulse program, see page 17. To use the fitness test program, see page 19. To use the maintenance mode, see page 20.

HOW TO USE THE QUICK START MODE

Plug in the power cord or begin pedaling to 1 activate the console.

If the recumbent bike has a Basic console, it can be used with or without the included power cord.

To use the power cord, see HOW TO CONNECT THE POWER CORD on page 7. To use the recumbent bike without the power cord, begin pedaling at a cadence of about 20 revolutions per minute (RPM) or faster. After a moment, the console displays will light and a series of tones will sound. While you pedal, power will be supplied by a generator; remember to continue pedaling while using the recumbent bike.

If the recumbent bike has a Workout TV console, the power cord must be used for the TV to be operated.

2 Select the QUICK START mode.

When the power is turned on, the QUICK START mode will be selected. If you have already selected a program, select the QUICK START mode again by repeatedly pressing the PROGRAM SELECT button until the words “QUICK START” appear in the main display.

Follow your progress with the matrix and the 5 main display.

The matrix—When the QUICK START mode is selected, the matrix will show a graph of the resistance levels that you select. The flashing column shows the current resistance level. Every thirty seconds, all columns will move one position to the left. As you increase or decrease the resistance, additional indicators will light or darken in the flashing column (and in all columns to the right).

Flashing Column

Note: The matrix shows relative resistance levels. As you increase or decrease the resistance, the lit indicators in all columns may shift upward or downward so that the highest indicators are always shown in the matrix.

The main display—The main display will show the following information:

Resistance—The left end of the main display will show the resistance level of the pedals.

A few seconds after the QUICK START mode is selected, the words “QUICK START” will begin to scroll across the main display.

3 Press the START button and begin pedaling.

When the button is pressed, the console will begin displaying exercise data.

4 Change the resistance of the pedals as desired.

As you pedal, change the resistance of the

pedals by pressing the RESISTANCE + and – buttons. To change the

resistance quickly,

press the QUICK RESISTANCE buttons. There are twenty resistance levels, from level 0.5 to level 10.

Pace/Time— When the Quick Start mode is selected, this section of the main display will show your pedaling pace (in minutes per mile) and

the elapsed time. The display will change from one number to the other every few seconds. Note: Any time that the resistance level changes, the display will show your pedaling pace.

Note: When a preset program or a pulse program is selected, the display will show your pedaling pace, the time remaining in the program, and the time remaining in the current segment of the program. During the fitness test program, the display will show the elapsed time.

10

Distance—This section of the main display will show the distance that you have pedaled, in miles or kilometers.

Calories/Watts—This section of the main dis-

play will show the approximate number of Calories you have

burned and your power

output in watts. The display will change from one number to the other every few seconds.

Note: If you enter your weight into the console, the console will measure your Calorie expenditure more accurately. To enter your weight, press the ENTER AGE/WT. button. The words “ENTER WEIGHT” and the current weight setting will scroll across the main display. To enter your weight, press the + and – buttons beside the ENTER AGE/WT. button. When your weight is shown, press the ENTER AGE/WT. button again.

Pulse/% Max—When you use the handgrip

pulse sensor or a Polar® -compatible chest pulse sensor (not in-

cluded), this section of

the main display will show your heart rate (see step 6). When a pulse program is selected, the display will show your heart rate and the corresponding percentage of your estimated maximum heart rate (see step 5 on page 17 for an explanation of your estimated maximum heart rate). The display will change from one number to the other every few seconds.

Speed/RPM—The right end of the main display will show your pedaling speed, in miles per hour

or kilometers per hour, and your pedaling ca-

dence, in revolutions per minute. The display will change from one number to the other every few seconds.

To reset the main display at any time, press the CLEAR button.

6 Measure your pulse if desired.

If there are thin sheets of plastic

on the metal con-

Contacts tacts on the hand-

grip pulse sensor,

peel off the plas- tic. To measure your pulse, hold the contacts; your thumbs must be

resting on the inner contacts, and your

fingers must be touching the outer contacts.

Avoid moving your hands.

When your pulse is detected, the PULSE indicator above the main display will light, and then your heart rate will be shown. For the most accurate heart rate reading, hold the contacts for at least 15 seconds without moving your hands.

If your heart rate is not shown, make sure that your hands are positioned as described. Be careful not to move your hands excessively or to squeeze the contacts too tightly. For optimal performance, clean the contacts using a soft cloth; never use alcohol, abrasives, or chemicals.

When you are finished using the recumbent 7 bike, the console will automatically enter an

idle mode or turn off.

If the power cord is being used, the words “PUSH ANY BUTTON TO START A NEW WORKOUT” will begin to scroll across the main display if the pedals are not moved for a few minutes. Unplug the power cord when the recumbent bike is not in use.

If the power cord is not being used, the console will automatically turn off if the pedals are not moved for several seconds.
