Any issues must be reported immediately in writing. Flex Fitness Equipment is only responsible for assembly of the equipment.

We are not responsible for the maintenance of the equipment. It is the responsibility of the client to ensure the install is suitable for his/her purpose and that it will handle the weight loadings he/she wishes it to. It it the responsibility of the customer to ensure all enquipment is securely attached to the floor where necessary.

The client is also responsible for bolting down the equipment to ensure it is sturdy. This may be required in a commercial environment e.g. a personal training studio or a commercial gym. For example - If Flex Fitness equipment is required to deliver and install a rack or cage, the client is responsible for checking that the rig is dyna bolted to the floor and is sturdy enough for his/her requirements. Standard delivery and assembly terms and conditions will also apply.

Maintenance

Caution – for safe operation Always inspect equipment prior to operation. Look for loose bolts and frayed cables. Repair or replace any damaged or worn parts and tighten all loosened hardware. As part of Flex Fitness Equipment's normal installation and setup process, all bolts must be tightened and checked after the first 1-2 hours of initial usage and then periodically, un-tightened bolts and nuts may become loose, causing damage, which may void warranty and be dangerous to the user.

After using the equipment, always clean and wipe down the equipment. Perspiration that continuously settles on the frame and pads may cause rust or damage to the unit. Damage resulting from lack of proper maintenance will not be covered under warranty. All products sold by Flex Fitness Equipment must be maintained as per specifications in the maintenance / operations guide supplied by the manufacturer or as above. Failure to maintain and service equipment will result in the warranty being void.

• Due to the density and material of the Jigsaw mat, it may expand or contract
slightly in areas with temperature variance or radiant heat source.
This will not affect the safety or functionality of the mat but it will cause slight
permanent change to the size of the mat over time. This will be more evident in the
