OmGym safety guidelines
 


  • Always consult with your doctor before beginning any exercise program.
  • Wait at least 2 hours after eating before performing inversion or exercise.
  • Wait at least 15 minutes after consuming liquids before performing inversion.
  • Do not use while under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
  • Do not invert while using anti-coagulants or Advil.
  • Always warm up for 5-10 minutes with gentle repetitive movement before exercising (trampoline, hula hoop, jog, etc).
  • Stay warm throughout the duration of your OmGym session.
  • Start slowly and easily. New movement is to be practiced with extra care.
  • Use awareness and proper form with each movement.
  • Always listen to and honor your body's needs. Disengage from any painful movement. Be cautious of overstretching.
  • Remember to breathe in all positions or routines. Do not hold your breath.

  • Children should always be supervised by an adult.

  

  • Do not sleep while inverting.
