ISPLAY ONSOLE This section lists and describes the functions for the keys and display windows on the Lifecycle recumbent bike console. See Section 4, titled The Workouts, for detailed information on using the console to set up workouts. START: Press this key (while pedaling on the 90R) to activate the console for programming a new work- out.
MESSAGE CENTER: This window displays step-by-step instructions for setting up a workout. During a workout, it displays statistics about the progress of the workout: • Level: the selected intensity level; alternates with Heart Rate. • Heart Rate: the detected heart rate if the user is wearing the Polar heart rate chest strap; alter- nates with Level.
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.
These electrodes are attached to a chest strap that the user wears during the workout. The chest strap is optional. To order it, call Life Fitness Customer Support Services. See Section 6.4, titled How to Obtain Product Service.

ORKOUTS Different bike workouts require different setup steps. See the chart, titled Lifecycle Recumbent Exercise Bike Workout Setup Steps for a quick glance at the steps for setting up any workout program. This section provides details on the steps themselves.
• Target heart rate: Exercise bike 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.
ELECTING A ORKOUT Two workout mode options on the Lifecycle recumbent 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.
The FAT BURN workout is designed to maintain a user’s heart rate at 65 percent of the theoretical maximum for optimal results. If the user does not wear a Polar heart rate chest strap during the work- † out, the WORKOUT PROFILE window displays a heart shape. The console continuously monitors and displays the heart rate, adjusting the intensity level of the Lifecycle recumbent bike to reach and maintain the target*.
The Life Fitness-patented HILL workout offers a variety of configurations for interval training. Intervals are periods of intense aerobic exercise separated by regular periods of lower-intensity exercise. The WORKOUT PROFILE window represents high and low intervals as columns of light, which together have the appearance of hills and valleys.
gram 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 added by the user “on the fly,” each interval increases by three seconds. A 15-minute workout consists of 20 intervals at 45 seconds each.
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 proceed to a new heart rate goal until the user reaches the current goal.
If the heart rate goes above the the- oretical maximum for more then 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.
(93R O XTREME EART 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 possi- ble. The effect is similar to that of running sprints. The user must wear a chest strap or grip the Lifepulse sensors throughout the workout.
ATTS ONLY 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 recumbent bike. It is roughly equal to .25 calories per hour. The workout program automatically alters the intensity level to maintain the appropriate rate of effort.
Please note that the estimated VO2 max scores achieved will be 10 percent to15 percent lower on stationary exercise bikes than those achieved on other Life Fitness cardiovascular equipment.

Within each suggested range, these additional guidelines can be used: Lower Half of Range higher age lower weight shorter * in cases of excessive weight, use lower half of range The computer will not accept: heart rates less than 52 or greater than 200 beats per minute body weights less than 75 pounds (34 kg) or greater than 400 pounds (182 kg) ages below 10 or over 99 years data input that exceeds human potential...
Very Low <28 Life Fitness developed this rating scale based on VO2 max percentile distributions referenced in American College of Sports Medicine's "Guidelines for Exercise Testing and Prescription" (6th Ed. 2000). It is designed to provide a qualitative description of a user's VO2 max estimation, and a means of assessing ini- tial fitness level and tracking improvement.
