The Lifestyler CardioFit Plus machine is a special aerobic machine. It resembles an exercise bike, but you don't pedal, you push or pull the handlebars, while pushing the pedals. You can only set resistance for either the pushing or pulling phase, not both at the same time. If you set the machine to the push mode, you will feel the resistance when you push the handlebars away from you. If you set the machine to the pull mode, you'll feel resistance when you pull the handlebars toward you.

Step 1

Turn the seat knob, under the seat, counterclockwise to loosen it. Pull it down and slide the seat to the desired position. Release the knob and turn it clockwise to tighten it.

Step 2

Locate the resistance collar underneath the seat frame. The collar is marked with numbers one through nine. Turn the collar to line up the desired resistance level with the arrow.

Step 3

Set the CardioFit Plus to push mode. Hold the handlebars in one hand and lift the frame handle with the other hand. The frame handle is located in front of the seat. Press the handlebars down toward the seat and hook the link arms into the upper set of rollers on the handlebar frame.

Step 4

Set the CardioFit Plus to pull mode. Hold the handlebars in one hand and lift the frame handle with the other hand. Tilt the handlebars up away from the seat and hook the link arms into the lower set of rollers on the handlebar frame.

Step 5

Sit on the seat. Grab the handlebars with an overhand grip and place your feet on the pedals. Push the handlebars while pushing the pedals with your legs. Then pull the handlebars while pushing the pedals with your legs. You will only have resistance on either the push or pull, not both.

Step 6

Look at the monitor screen, mounted on the handlebar frame, to track your speed, distance, calories and time.
