Are you ready to take your first climb? One of the great things about CLMBR is that it’s easy to set up with minimal adjustments needed.
Watch our demo video or follow the steps below!
1) Adjust the handlebars to your shoulders
In order to adjust the handlebars to your height, place both feet on the pedals and stand up straight, leveling your feet out with one another. Grab the handles to stabilize yourself and take a look at the ten vertical handlebar settings (1-10) on the left and right uprights of your CLMBR.
The handlebars move up or down and should be adjusted to shoulder height or slightly below for the most comfortable climb.
To move the handle bars up or down, pull the lever and slide the handle bars to your desired height. Push the lever down to secure the setting. Correct handlebar positioning ensures you are getting proper range of motion and maintaining good form.
2) Secure the foot straps
Foot straps are optional but increase security and stability on your CLMBR. Should you choose to use them, place your foot onto the middle of the pedal and secure the strap across the widest part of your shoe.
Adjust the strap so you can fit one or two fingers in between the strap and your shoe to maintain blood flow - the footstrap should never be completely flush or tight against your foot.
3) Test your adjustment and climb
Once the handlebars are adjusted to your height and you’re strapped in, it’s time to test your setup and form on your CLMBR.
Sit back into your glutes and ensure that your upper body and spine are at a 75 degree angle in line with the machine. Move both your arms and legs in a cross crawl motion. While you climb, keep your torso and shins parallel with the vertical uprights of the machine and minimize swaying through the body.
Your spine and torso should remain as neutral as possible and keep your abdominals engaged to protect your lower back. Hold the handles lightly, keep your wrists long and ensure that you can fully extend your arms while keeping your elbows relaxed.
