Never use The Human Trainer in any circumstance where you could fall more than 18 inches (.25 meters) to stable ground.

By using The Human Trainer you agree to the full terms discussed in The Human Trainer manual. Moreover, any usage that is not in compliance with the recommended usage of The Human Trainer is done so at the user’s own risk. Astone Fitness Ltd. does not accept any liability for any misuse of The Human Trainer and/or its accessories.

The Human Trainer is constructed with the highest grade industrial materials and is designed to provide the ultimate body weight workout. The Human Trainer is built to last and withstand the most intense training programs. However, improper storage or usage of The Human Trainer may cause premature wear and breakage, which could potentially lead to both severe and minor injuries.
Ensure you always protect The Human Trainer from potential damaging elements when the unit is not in use. Keeping The Human Trainer exposed to sunlight, damp conditions, and extreme heat and cold temperatures for prolonged periods can weaken the nylon and metal components.
Never attach The Human Trainer to a sharp edged anchoring point. Repetitive rubbing against a sharp edge can potentially weaken or tear the nylon material. (Be Careful: Certain door hinges, overhead beams, and support structures may have sharp corners and edges)
If any of the components of The Human Trainer shows signs of wear and tear, immediately replace the components.
Always perform a warm-up of 5 -10 minutes to prepare your muscles prior to using The Human Trainer. (Examples: Jump rope, jogging or other dynamic movements)
- Never swing or play on The Human Trainer.
- Never hang upside down on The Human Trainer.
- Always follow the instructions in the Human Trainer Manual for installation and safe use.
Be sure to always inspect your Human Trainer and all its components before use. Never use The Human Trainer if any of the components are worn or damaged. Always replace any damaged or worn components immediately.
It is very important to use a strong and secure anchoring point that can fully support your body weight. The anchoring point must allow The Human Trainer to safely attach without causing any quick and excessive wear to it. When using any or all of the anchoring attachments, always weight test The Human Trainer by pulling hard on the anchoring and main straps.
For additional safety, make sure the floor surface you will be performing the exercises on is not wet or slippery. Failure to do so could potentially lead to both severe and minor injuries.
When performing exercises using the handles, make sure you have a secure grip and always ensure the carabiners are correctly attached to the D-Rings on the main straps. For additional safety, weight test The Human Trainer handles by pulling hard before using.
Failure to adhere to The Human Trainer Manual safety guidelines may result in minor or severe injury. The user assumes the full risk of injury and all liability resulting from
the use of The Human Trainer and all of its components.
