Do you get the oil changed in your car? If so, then you know the importance of maintenance for the longevity of your vehicle. If you don’t change the oil regularly, your engine will eventually seize up and you won’t have a car to drive anymore.
Similarly, your exercise equipment needs maintenance and care even under warranty. In the past, your treadmill or elliptical may not have gotten much use. But now that most offices, schools and activities are virtual, more time is being spent working out at home by multiple members of the family versus in the gym. Simply stated, wear-and-tear is happening more rapidly than normal.
Fitness equipment repair involves lubricating joints, tightening bolts, checking alignment, inspecting the overall machine, and identifying potential issues before they become big expensive problems.
Maintenance frequency we recommend:
Once a year for moderate usage
Twice a year for use two to three times per week
Quarterly for daily usage or usage multiple times a day
Here are reasons to consider a preventive maintenance contract:
Due to Covid-19, your equipment may be getting more use than ever before.
Older or refurbished equipment may have hidden problems that can be identified and repaired before they lead to additional breakdowns and more expensive repairs.
