Trainer+ placement, portability and storage

So portable, you might even consider taking it on vacation! Or maybe not. Whatever space you've envisioned to place your new Trainer+, we recommend it's indoors in a dry climate-controlled environment away from water and wet areas.


  • Use and store the Trainer+ indoors. The Trainer+ is intended for personal indoor use only.  Using it outdoors may increase the risk of burns, fire electric shock, or injury to persons. Outdoor use may void your warranty.
  • Place the Trainer+ on a flat, dry and level surface.
  • If you have uneven floors, simply level out the Trainer+ by adjusting any of the screwable feet located under the machine.
  • Make sure the Trainer+ has enough clearance
    • The Trainer+ footprint is 20.5" long x 46" wide (520 mm long x 1170 mm wide), and the platform height is 4.5" (115 mm high) from the floor.
    • The full length of each rope is 8.8 feet (2.7 metres). This is usually enough clearance to press your arms over your head while standing on the platform. We recommend that the ceiling height of your space has more than enough clearance not only for your ropes, but also your own height and arm lever length to reach above your head at complete extension.
    • The Trainer+ weighs 80 pounds (38 kg).  When training, you will be performing the exercises on the Exercise Deck (top surface), majority of your body mass must be pressing down over the centre of the Exercise Deck to act as an anchor - preventing the Trainer+ from lifting off the ground. 
    • To protect your surrounding belongings and little loved ones, we suggest a 5-foot (1.5 meters) clearance between the Trainer+ and any walls, mirrors, windows, etc.

Environment and Temperature

  • Use and store the Trainer+ indoors, avoiding any exercise on the Trainer+ in temperatures outside of 41°F – 86°F / 5°C - 30°C.
  • When not in use, the Trainer+ may be stored in a well ventilated, dry space at 32°F - 104° F / 0°C - 40°C.
  • Store the Trainer+ out of reach from children and household pets, ensuring the Vitruvian accessories are removed from the machine after each use.


  • The Trainer+ is designed to be relocated anywhere you see fit within your indoor level-floored training space. It can me moved by lifting the machine via the left-hand handle (IEC plug end) of the machine. 
  • Raise the Trainer+ to an angle between 30° - 60° from the ground. This will release the 'feet' from the floor and the Trainer+ can move freely on the ground by rolling it on the transport wheels provided.

Vitruvian Trainer+ Portability Wheels Mobilise

  • The Trainer+ is designed to be trolleyed along a smooth level floor. Mobilising it across an uneven, bumpy floor can increase the likelihood of loosening the bluetooth antenna, making it tricky for your Vitruvian App and Trainer+ to maintain a connection.  Try avoid putting your Trainer+ in a hairy situation where it can experience aggressive, shaking-like handling.

WiFi Connectivity and Cellular Coverage

  • The Trainer+'s power cord is 8.8 feet (2.7 meters) long. Avoid stretching the cord beyond 8.8 feet to reach a power outlet.
  • Choose an area with good Wi-Fi reception or cellular coverage. To test reception in your chosen area, try streaming a high-resolution video on your device, such as a phone, tablet or laptop.
  • If you're unable to smoothly steam a high resolution video in your chosen space,  not to worry! The training system will still perform, but it may be a slightly degraded experience.

Upright Storage

  • The Trainer+ is compact enough to conveniently store under your bed or sofa. It is most convenient to lay the machine flat, but you can store it on its long side. If you do opt to store your Trainer+ in this configuration, take extra care for your surrounding belongings and ensure the safety of your little ones by placing it between objects, like the gap between a sofa and the wall.
