How Does it Work
To get on this elliptical hold the upper body arms of the elliptical or the handlebars (with the heart rate monitors in front of the console) and then step onto the pedal that is in the lowest position. You then can step on the other pedal. Once you are on the elliptical you can start to push on the pedals to get the flywheel spinning. When this happen the console will turn on and light up. The touch screen works similar to other tablets and you operate it by pressing your finger on the screen and swiping when required. When the elliptical starts it will be in manual mode and you can change the incline and the resistance as needed by pressing the appropriate buttons. To use one of the built in workout programs you just need to touch the runner button at the bottom of the touch screen. From here you can follow the prompts to select the workout you want. When you have finished your workout before you dismount from the elliptical make sure it has come to a full stop. It may take several revolutions of the pedals to do so.
This NordicTrack elliptical comes with 35 workout programs built-in. Everything is easily accessible from the touch screen. To start you press the runner button to bring up the workouts menu. You then select the workout category you want and then select the workout from within the category by selecting it on the screen. Along with the name of the workout it will also display the duration (except for the set-a-goal workout) and approx number of calories you can expect to burn. A profile of the incline and resistance of that specific workout will also be displayed.
All workouts are broken up into segments. Each segment equals a block of time, a resistance level, and an incline level. Once you have completed all segments the workout is over. Each workout also has a target zone meter which is intended to provide motivation and keep you maintaining a certain speed of pedaling. This target is displayed as revolutions per minute (rpm) and when maintained will help you meet the target calories burned for that workout.
