Ensure your SkiFast is fixed securely to the wall if using the wall mounted version – or ensure your SkiFast Frame is located on a flat, stable surface, and that all nuts and bolts are tight and that there is no unwanted movement in the SkiFast Ergometer or set up.. Check that the ropes are in good condition, not frayed or knotted and that they are secured properly into the SkiFast handle end. Make sure that all pulleys and rollers are running freely and there are no obstructions that will prevent or restrict their movement. Before commencing activity, the Skier should be ‘warmed up’ and ‘stretched’ [see- Warm-up tab]. Ensure the resistance settings on the SkiFast Ergometer are correct and appropriate for the users size, age and / or ability. If in doubt, get a Coach to check.
The SkiFast Ergometer needs to be located in an area where enough space is present [See safe working areas in the assembly manual and above] . Ensure that there is no possibility of any object or person being in contact with the skier, the Ergometer, handles or ropes during operation, or that anyone nearby could be injured as a result of the Ergometer being used or in motion.. No one must be allowed to enter the safe working area whilst the Ergometer is being used. Should a number of Ergometers be used in one area, then they should be sufficiently spaced, so that no handles or ropes are capable of colliding or that anyone trying to pass through, [between 2 machines] or get on or off another machine is affected by doing so.
