Warning: Improper use of the product might cause injurySP-4211-Olympic-Decline-Bench-Spirit-8


A regular preventative maintenance schedule with all fitness equipment ensures that products are working at an optimal condition without affecting the end user exercise experience. To assist in the maintenance regiment, it is recommended to break service into: Daily, Weekly, Monthly & Quarterly activities.
Spirit Fitness strongly recommends performing regular preventive maintenance on your equipment. Without regularly scheduled maintenance, normal wear and tear may cause cumulative effects, such as misalignment or premature wear, resulting in downtime. For this reason, we highly recommend following the maintenance schedules. Additionally, unusual symptoms, such as excessive noise during use, stiffness or free play in moving parts, etc., should be investigated and necessary corrective actions
(adjustment or parts replacement) should be performed. If any components are found to be worn or damaged, the unit should be removed from service until repairs can be made. Only components supplied or approved by Spirit Fitness shall be used to maintain and/or repair the unit.


  • Wipe down and inspect the framework and other structural components
  • Check all attaching hardware for security. Tighten as needed.
  • Clean and inspect the upholstered cushions and the hand grips.


  • Check all labels and placards affixed to the unit for legibility and security. Replace illegible labels and placards as needed


  • Apply wax to powder-coated areas of the framework and other structural components.


CAUTION: DO NOT use lacquer thinner, acetone, or other solvents to clean powder-coated finishes on the framework or other structural components. Solvents will dull the finish, and contain components that may remove the epoxy-based powder from the frame.
Framework and other structural components should be wiped down on a daily basis using a moistened with water. This will increase the longevity of protective powder-coat finishes. The framework should be inspected while cleaning for evidence of fatigue cracks, scratches or chips in the finish, loose hardware, worn or damaged weight cable, and other areas that may require attention.
Apply easy-application car wax to all powder-coated surfaces quarterly. Regular waxing will aid in preventing premature rusting due to corrosives found in perspiration, and will allow loose particles to be removed more easily when performing the daily wipe­down.
Procedures to repair scratches and chips depend on the severity of the damage:

  • Surface scratches can generally be repaired by polishing with an automotive rubbing compound.

CAUTION: DO NOT use cleaners such as Lysol®, Armor All®, Windex®, or other abrasive detergents to clean upholstered surfaces. These products will remove moisture from the upholstery, resulting in premature cracking.
Upholstered cushions should be cleaned on a daily basis to prevent damaged due to corrosives found in perspiration.
Wipe the top and sides of upholstered cushions using a cloth moistened with a solution of one part lanolin hand cleaner to nine parts water. After cleaning, wipe down using a dry towel to remove any residue.
