After assembly, it is time to adjust the table to your height and give it a try. This is easily done thanks to the central bar. This table can fit users up to a maximum height of 6’6,” which allows small and large users alike to use the table.
Once adjusted, you are ready to really give this model a try. If this is your first time using an inversion table, you will notice that you need to strap in your ankles.
The ankle locking system is spring loaded and the padding is adequate. However, like all other tables, you will feel pressure when inverted. This is normal, and it will take some time to get accustomed to an inverted position.
Now, locate the level locking system and put it on the highest level. This is done so that you can get used to using the table and actually being inverted. Now, lean back and adjust the locking system until you are comfortable being fully inverted.
The locking system is a breeze to use and takes seconds to adjust. This is a big difference compared to other models that you have to fickle with to get to the right setting.
Once your inversion session is complete, you can fold up the table and place it in a corner or in a closet. The weight should not be much of an issue at a mere 46 pounds, but you may need an extra pair of hands for easier transport. This is especially true if you are carrying your table up or down stairs.
Our Only Complaint
While not a major issue, we definitely recommend using your own tools when assembling this model. The tools that come in the package will suffice, but they are rather flimsy and didn’t provide us with the confidence not to use our own tools.
However, many users have used the tools that come in the box and there are no complaints seen with the stability of the table.
