Having had some Suspension experience with the OmGym Yoga sling is helpful but not a requirement and although Suspension workouts and inversions can be done by almost anybody, there are some constraints.  For a list of restrictions please review our Safety Checklist.  But rest assured that everyone will be encouraged to explore at their own pace even if it means never leaving the ground.  Due to baggage restrictions, it is requested that people bring their own OmGyms but a few extras will be available for those who don't own one.
