The ARENA Platform must be grounded. Grounding provides a path of least resistance for electric current to reduce the risk of electric shock in the event of a malfunction. The ARENA Platform is equipped with a cord having an equipment-grounding conductor and a grounding plug.

The plug must be plugged into an appropriate outlet that is properly installed and grounded in accordance with all local codes and ordinances.

Only use the provided ARENA charger/wall adapter. Do NOT use any charger which is not provided by ARENA specifically for use with the ARENA Platform. If the charger appears to be physically damaged, gets excessively hot, or otherwise appears to be not be working correctly, discontinue use immediately and contact ARENA for a replacement.

Before each use, inspect the ARENA Platform for any signs of damage or wear. If you believe anything is out of the ordinary, do not use the ARENA Platform. Contact ARENA Customer Care for assistance. If you do not understand how to operate the ARENA Platform, contact ARENA Customer Care for an explanation on safe and proper use; find our contact information at Keep the manual and any warning labels for future reference. Replace any labels if damaged, illegible, or removed, by contacting ARENA Customer Care.

Damaged or worn parts should be replaced immediately. Do not attempt to repair the ARENA Platform on your own. Do not use the ARENA Platform until a proper inspection and repair have been performed by an approved ARENA technician. The use of damaged equipment could result in serious injury or death.

Never operate the ARENA Platform if it is malfunctioning. If the cable is locked into position, do not force it up.




Make sure there is a counterweight on the ARENA platform when using the device (at least one hand, foot or other source of weight). In addition, the ARENA does not support multiple users physically using the ARENA at the same time. Limit use to one user at a time and only in accordance with the ARENA app.

The ARENA Platform is designed for use by individuals aged 18 and up. Keep small children and pets away from the ARENA Platform.

Do not allow children or pets near the ARENA Platform and accessories. The ARENA Platform contains parts, components, and functions that can cause severe injury or death.

The ARENA Platform should be used in conjunction with tested and approved applications and tools only. Although the ARENA Platform may be compatible with third-party support applications and tools, the ARENA Platform has not tested third-party applications and cannot attest to the safety of such products. Use of products not approved by ARENA may result in damage to the ARENA Platform, injury, or death.

Always wear appropriate exercise clothing and shoes when working out. Avoid loose clothing or jewelry that could get caught in the equipment. Keep head, hands, limbs, fingers, and hair clear of all moving parts while the equipment is in use.

Pay attention to your surroundings and communicate with other individuals in the home if using the ARENA Platform in a common area.

Start out slowly and progress sensibly. Even if you are an experienced exerciser, make sure you feel familiar with the equipment and movements before moving on to more advanced workouts. Listen to your body. Do not overexert yourself or work to exhaustion. Use reasonable judgment when working with weights. Avoid using excessive weight which may cause injury. If you experience faintness, chest pain, shortness of breath, or other abnormal symptoms, stop use immediately. Contact your medical provider prior to restarting your training.

LED Lighting Guide

Solid Green: The ARENA Platform is off, plugged in to an outlet and charging

Under normal operation, the lights will glow solid white. When the battery is low (under 30% battery), the lights will glow yellow. When the battery is in this yellow state, the ARENA may still be used but should be charged soon. When the battery is critically low (under 5% battery), the lights will change to solid red and cable force will slowly be faded down to 0 lbs over the period of about 30 seconds. Battery status will be shown in the ARENA app as well; monitoring of the ARENA lights is not required for operation.

The battery may last up to 30 days on a single charge, depending upon usage. Charging takes around 3 hours for a full charge.


Always work out with a bar, rope, loop, hip belt, handle or other approved accessory properly clipped to the cable. DO NOT pull on the carabiner directly, make sure you have an approved ARENA accessory attached prior to exercising.

  1. Unpack the ARENA Platform, charger, and accessories from the shipping box.
  2. Plug the charger into a wall outlet in a safe location indoors, and then plug the round barrel connector of the charger into the charge port on the ARENA, located next to the power button.
  3. Locate the power switch on the side of the ARENA Platform. Flip the power switch to the on ("1") position. After a few seconds, you should see the ARENA lights glow white.
  4. If the cable is not at the "start position" with the carabiner situated on top of the ARENA Unit, in between the rollers. Allow the cable to return to the "start position", turn off your ARENA unit, wait 15 seconds and turn the Arena unit back on before proceeding.
  5. On your smartphone or tablet, install the ARENA App and follow the instructions to get started and connect the platform over Bluetooth.
The ARENA uses Bluetooth to connect the device to the service/app. Make sure your Bluetooth is on prior to connecting to an ARENA. The App will use data or wifi to access the latest workouts, track your workouts and metrics and receive software updates.
To get started, create an account or log in to your account on your smart phone. Scan the ARENA barcode to link your account to the device. Make sure to disconnect when completed if you are sharing the device with others.
