HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR SMARTBAND™

  • WARRANTY

    WARRANTY

    The SMARTBAND™ is designed for years of use, however like any product that is produced from a soft material, it can deteriorate over time.

    All resistance bands will show signs of wear due to the nature of use and the surfaces they interact with.

    SMARTBANDs that show signs of surface wear (blisters, peeling or delamination) are considered to be within normal wear and tear and do not mean that the band will prematurely break.

    Any SMARTBAND that breaks, rips or otherwise fails due to a manufacturing defect will be covered by our warranty for a period of 1 year from the date of purchase. Normal wear and tear is not covered under this warranty.

  • FOOTWEAR

    Many exercises with the SMARTBAND require you to position the resistance band under your feet. Shoe technology is constantly evolving and shoes with an aggressive tread pattern, sharp edges or made from abrasive material are likely to cause damage to the band. You could consider training in bare feet (if appropriate for the particular exercise).

  • FLOOR SURFACES

    FLOOR SURFACES

    Avoid exercising on an abrasive surface, such as rough concrete (or carpet) as this could damage the surface of the resistance band during use. We recommend (if possible) working out on a smooth hard surface or using a fitness mat with a durable but soft surface e.g. the grey side of the Les Mills MBX Mat™.

  • OVER EXTENSION

    OVER EXTENSION

    The SMARTBAND has been designed to be stretched to a maximum length of 2.5 times its resting length. Stretching the SMARTBAND beyond its recommended extension can compromise the band’s soft material properties and may result in fine tears. Please ensure you use the handles when using your SMARTBAND. Not using the handles and shortening your grip, may result in the SMARTBAND exceeding its maximum length of extension. The leading cause of failures within resistance bands is when they have been over-stretched (over extended). If you are not able to achieve the resistance you require – (i.e. if you feel the need to shorten the SMARTBAND), we suggest using a stiffer band such as SMARTBAND Extreme, or using a small to medium hand-held weight plate in addition to the SMARTBAND.

  • KNOTTING & OTHER OBJECTS

    KNOTTING & OTHER OBJECTS

    Tying your SMARTBAND in a knot may cause it to rip or tear when performing a move. We do not recommend using a SMARTBAND with secondary objects (such as wrapping around a pole). Secondary objects can have sharp edges, abrasive surfaces or other features which can cause damage to the SMARTBAND. The SMARTBAND should never be wrapped or tied around an object where it is stretched over a fine edge. When a resistance band is stretched under these circumstances, these objects create a high level of point loading on the resistance band which can cause it to break, tear or otherwise prematurely fail.

  • STORAGE

    STORAGE

    The SMARTBAND is manufactured from a custom formulated TPE (thermoplastic elastomer) which gives the band the ability to stretch and then return to its original state. The SMARTBAND should be used and stored at room temperature to achieve the best results. Exposing the SMARTBAND to extreme temperatures and sunlight may affect the performance of the TPE and it may become brittle and is therefore prone to tearing. We recommend storing your SMARTBAND in a cool, dry area and out of direct sunlight.

  • CLEANING

    CLEANING

    Regularly clean the SMARTBAND by gently washing with water and a few drops of mild dish soap (if necessary) using a soft sponge. Do not use any other solvents, chemicals or other solutions to clean your SMARTBAND. Hang the SMARTBAND up to dry. Ensure the SMARTBAND is fully dry before use or storage. Do not use high heat to dry the SMARTBAND.

HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR MBX MAT™

  • GENERAL USE

    GENERAL USE

    Keep the MBX Mat away from sharp items. If you are wearing shoes when using the MBX Mat, ensure they are clean and do not have any sharp items within the tread. Avoid wearing hard or sharp accessories such as metal buttons, rivets, zippers etc. that may damage the MBX Mat.

    If you are not wearing shoes when using the MBX Mat, ensure your hands and feet are clean.

  • CLEANING

    CLEANING

    Regularly clean the MBX Mat by gently washing with water and a few drops of mild dish soap using a soft sponge. Hang the MBX Mat to dry. Ensure the MBX Mat is fully dry before rolling or folding to store it. Do not use high heat to dry the MBX Mat.

  • NEW MAT ODOUR

    NEW MAT ODOUR

    With a new MBX Mat, you may notice a slight odour from the new materials when you remove from the packaging. Simply remove all packaging and lay flat or hang on a MBX Mat storage rack. The odour will naturally disappear. You can also use water and a few drops of mild dish soap to gently wash the MBX Mat if you prefer.

  • STORAGE

    STORAGE

    Avoid storing the MBX Mat in extreme temperatures and near sharp items. Each time you use the MBX Mat hang it until dry. Once dry, the MBX Mat can be left hanging on a MBX Mat storage rack, or be rolled or be stored flat. Do not put other items on top of the MBX Mat.
