Importance of Preventive Maintenance

Preventive Maintenance is top priority when it comes to keeping your fitness equipment running safely and properly.  From ellipticals to steppers, treadmills, and spin bikes, typical maintenance is critical to the health of your fitness equipment even if it is under warranty.  The most basics tasks that keep your machines running smoothly are the cleaning and lubricating of moving parts, tightening of cables and belts, reviewing that all hardware is tight, and checking that all technology is up-to-date and performing properly. Inspection reports are also generated to identify potential issues before they become a larger, more expensive problem.  Below is just a small list of Preventive Maintenance benefits.


       Equipment Performance: Regular maintenance ensures that fitness equipment operates at its optimal level.

       Safety: Regular maintenance helps identify any potential safety hazards or malfunctions, reducing the chances of accidents or injuries.

       Cost Savings: By addressing minor issues early on, you can prevent them from escalating into major problems that require extensive repairs or equipment replacement.

       Avoiding Downtime: By minimizing unplanned downtime, regular maintenance reduces inconvenience for both staff and users.
