The ideal door for setup is an inside door with at least 2 feet of open space on the left and right and with 8-10 feet in the workout zone. However, the bands can be easily shortened for tight spaces.
PLEASE NOTE: The workout zone for your Pilates equipment is strongest on the side of the door supported by the door frame. Where this is not possible, double check the latch security before adding weight to the product.

ADJUSTABLE ANCHOR SYSTEM
First install the 2 Adjustable Door Mount Systems side by side, 16-20 inches apart. Feel free to adjust the width between the Adjustable Door Mount Systems after you have worked with the equipment.
- Unroll the first door anchor and remove any twist in the strap.
- Open the door and slide the metal bottom retainer clip under the door with the adjustable loops facing the side you intend to workout on.
- Loop the opposite end of the strap up over the top of the door.
- Cinch strap on the backside near the top of the door and tighten.
- Make sure the top plastic slip buckle is at least 2 inches below the top of the door and the middle buckle is close to the center of the door.
- Cinch the strap on the back side of the door to full tightness. This may need to be repeated a few times as the product initially stretches during use.
- Repeat for the 2nd Adjustable Door Anchor, about 16-20 inches apart.
The Bar will need to be screwed together and attaches easily to a single or double band hook when needed.
PLEASE NOTE: When traveling, transport the bar in checked luggage ONLY. Never put the bar in your carry-on’s.
ALWAYS WORK WITH A PROFESSIONAL
Always consult your Pilates, Fitness, PT or OT Professional as the target muscles you are attempting to strengthen or lengthen in these workouts are often the smaller, weaker ones requiring proper stabilization first, followed by controlled, accurate movements. While our website has suggested workouts, there is no substitute for receiving personalized instruction from a trained Professional.
To install a band on an anchor loop, simply slide the plastic clip, open end down, through the loop. Pull the open end back against the edge of the loop, engaging the opening on the loop and then firmly pull the band straight out, securely locking the connector to the loop.
To remove a band, simply twist the connector towards the opening of the hook. As it begins to release, around 90 degrees of rotation, simply push it off the anchor loop and then pull it back through the opening. The first few times, especially when the product is brand new, it may seem like the first time you stuck your fingers into a Chinese Finger Trap. Take a moment to install and remove bands a few times to improve your proficiency so that you can readjust your tension quickly as you proceed through your workouts.
Bands come in purple (easiest), green (easy moderate), red (moderate), and black (most resistance). When beginning your routines, err on the side of less resistance so you can accurately stabilize your body and position yourself optimally before performing the specific movements. All cuffs and the bar conveniently connect to the hooks on the end of the colored bands. As your proficiency increases, additional resistance can be achieved by adding bands to the system. To create shortened workout length, put the band through the anchor loop and connect both hooks to the desired cuff or bar.
Band Resistance Levels:
PURPLE - Easiest Resistance
GREEN - Easy Moderate Resistance
RED - Moderate Resistance
BLACK - Most Resistance
- Keep your components clean and free of grit.
- Keep out of the sun.
- Do not leave exposed to prolonged heat or cold.
- Keep out of reach of children and pets.
- Do not walk on the bands.
- Do not leave anything hanging on the bands that stretches them.
- Do not use bands as a bungee cord.
HEALTH + TRAINING CAUTIONS
Always be sure you are fit enough to undertake any exercise routine. When rehabilitating any injury, always consult with your Doctor, Physical Therapist, or other qualified health care practitioner before embarking on an exercise that may be detrimental to your recovery. NEVER assume that you can accurately duplicate the movements you see on video without proper instruction from a qualified Pilates, Fitness or Rehabilitation Professional. Video routines are meant to be a general guide and unless otherwise stated, are not meant to be instructional. Always consult a professional first to gain maximum results from the equipment and avoid injury.
