Preventative Maintenance Service

Preventative Maintenance Preventative Maintenance service is a necessity to keep your home fitness equipment operating at it's best.  Treadmills, ellipticals, bikes and home gyms are not the same as your standard household appliances.  They are more like your car than your washing machine in that they need continuous care to provide the user with many worry free miles.  Take care of your investment and stay fit at home.

Fitness Central will clean inside the machine, inspect, tighten, adjust and lubricate equimpment.  Wiping down covers, external cleaning and dusting of the equipment is the owners responsibility, along with keeping the area around the machine clean, and will not be performed by Fitness Central technicians.

Treadmills - $125

Treadmills are the most important machine to maintain due to the fact that they have more wear items and moving parts than other machines.  A treadmill works by pulling you across a deck by a belt driven by a motor.  Running is a high impact activity, which puts a lot of strain on the machine as well.  Our technician will perform the following services to your treadmill:

  • Remove motor cover and remove all dirt and debris from motor compartment
  • Lube elevation motor shaft
  • Check and adjust drive belt tension
  • Take high voltage readings with a meter (if reading is high, machine may be worn out)
  • Clean deck and belt surface
  • Lubricate belt and deck as needed with correct lubrication as per manufacturers specifications
  • Adjust running belt tension
  • Track running belt
  • Calibrate speed and incline as needed
  • Test run on the machine to make sure all systems are working properly

Ellipticals - $125

Ellpitical machines provide a lower impact workout but still need to be maintained to perform.  Ellipiticals have many more pivot points that need to stay tight, lubricated and aligned to prevent premature wear and unnecessary noise while being used.  Our technician will perform the following services to your ellipitical:

  • Clean wheels and rails
  • Remove crank arms and pedals to access the machine under the shroud
  • Inspect all pivot points under the shroud and tighten bolts to proper spec
  • Lubricate any parts that require lubrication
  • Check and adjust belt tension
  • Check and adjust resistance motor calibration
  • Reassemble machine
  • Test run on the ellpitical to make sure all programs work and machine runs quiet and smooth

Bikes - $100

Exercise bikes may be simple machines, but they require maintenance to hold up with regular use.  A bike is comprised of frame, cranks, drive belt or chain, resistance system and pedals.  Here is what we will do to service your machine:

  • Check and adjust tightness of drive belt or chain and adjust
  • Lubricate chain or wax belt to reduce noise and wear
  • Adjust resistance system
  • Reassemble machine and tighten cranks and pedals
  • Test ride to make sure all systems are operating

Rowers, steppers, climbers - $125

Rowers, steppers and climbers are less common residentially but still have moving parts that need attention.  We will pull all shrouds off the machine and fully check, adjust and lubricate all necessary parts.  Afterwards, our technician will test the machine to ensure all systems are working.

Strength Equipment - $125

Home gyms and freeweight gyms have moving parts, belts, cables, nuts and bolts that can loosen and wear over time.  Our technician will perform the following on a Pm for your strength equipment:
