Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall involves some SKLZ Recoil 360 All-Position Resistance Trainers, a leash-type device that provides resistance during exercise.

The recalled Resistance Trainer consists of a belt, an 8-foot flexible cord attachment leash, a safety handle and a storage bag. The brand, “SKLZ” followed by an arrow is printed on the belt. Users wear the belt around their waist; the belt is connected to a flexible cord.

The safety handle, also connected to the flexible cord, is held by a coach or training partner to provide resistance while the user runs, jumps or shuffles. In lieu of a coach or partners, the safety handle can be connected to a sturdy stationary object like a fence or post. Belts with the arrow before the “SKLZ” brand are not included in this recall.

Please consult the photograph above for details of the product’s design and retail presentation.

According to the CPSC, a weld on a ring on the Resistance Trainer’s belt can break during use and cause the Resistance Trainer’s flexible cord to quickly and unexpectedly retract and hit an exercise partner who is holding the other end.

The company has received three (3) reports of the weld on the Resistance Trainer breaking, resulting in serious injuries. These include blunt trauma to a lower leg, a puncture wound and a laceration.

If you believe you have purchased or have in your possession the recalled Resistance Trainer, please do not use it. Instead, contact the company to return them for a free replacement Resistance Trainer, including free shipping.

Please note: this Resistance Trainer has also been recalled in other jurisdictions, notably Canada. To see all notifications related to this recall, please search for “SKLZ” using the Search Box at the top of this page.
