Step 1: Springs

The springs are color coded to differentiate their resistance, you can have one or multiple springs attached at one time. While one may assume the lighter the resistance the easier, you'll realize fairly quickly that when tension is low, you'll have to recruit core stabilizer muscles alot more to maintain control, which is anything but easy. 

Yellow: Very Light resistance, Blue: Light resistance, 

Red: Medium resistance, Green: Heavy resistance

Step 2: Straps

There are the shorter and longer straps. The straps will be over the shoulder rest.

Step 3: Platform

The platform in the front is a "safe space" if you are feeling unstable. It is a great place

Step 4: Carriage

The moving carriage has rollers underneath so it can move horizontally within the frame. Make sure you're connected with at least one spring, or else you'll drift away!
