This section lists the cross-trainer's pre-programmed workouts. For more detailed information, see Section 4.2, titled

Setting Up and Using the Workouts.

QUICK START MANUAL MODE is the fastest way to begin exercising, and it bypasses the steps involved in selecting a
specific workout program. After the START key is pressed, a constant-level workout begins. The resistance level does
not change automatically.
INTERVAL combines "hills" and "valleys" of different resistance levels, which is proven to provide effective,
time-efficient cardiovascular results.
RANDOM is an interval training workout for which the user selects a computer-generated profile of varying intensity
levels.
MANUAL is a workout in which the resistance level does not change automatically.
PEAK is intended to burn fat by building up to, and maintaining, a constant level of resistance throughout the workout.
SLOPE gradually increases the intensity throughout the workout duration. It is intended to strengthen the heart, as well
as the major muscle groups that are most active during the workout, such as the leg muscle groups.
CHALLENGE begins at a high resistance level and maintains this level throughout the duration.
