TECH TIPS AND FAQS

My elliptical is wobbly and makes noise

 Sounds like the elliptical needs maintenance. An elliptical gets big weight transfer from left to right. The frame flexes and the frame bolts loosen. The loose bolts create more flex and when the frame flexes the pedals and arms bind. That puts extra wear and tear on the bushings and bearings. Schedule a maintenance appointment right away!


Why does my walking belt run off to the side all the time? I keep adjusting it but it keeps moving?

Walking belts can shift to the right or left side for several reasons. In most cases one can adjust the rear roller and reset the position of the belt to the center. In some cases however, it could be more complicated.. For example, sometimes the floor is unleveled, or the treadmill is moved from one unleveled area to another, or the walk belt itself is worn beyond its usable life. If your belt will not stay centered call for service.  


It feels like my walking belt is slipping, do I need a new belt?

Probably not. It probably needs to be adjusted. The combination of the wear and tear and tension from the rollers causes the belt to stretch ever so slightly over time. Occasionally the rear roller needs to be adjusted to compensate for the lengthening. We pay special attention to walking belts when we do maintenance.


What is included in a maintenance plan?

When we do maintenance we do it the way the manufacturer intended it to be done. We get our hands dirty and get inside the unit to clean and adjust and lube and balance and align EVERYTHING. Then we vacuum the vents and under and around the equipment. And finally we wipe it down with a disinfectant and polish it with equipment polish so it shines for your customers.

Do I have to pay in advance for my maintenance visits or can I pay as you go?

We get it – money is always a concern. So if you can’t pay for an annual contract upfront that is not a problem, you can pay as you go. The only difference between pay as you go plans versus a paid in advance plans is that we can not provide free repairs in between visits.  We still give you free emergency service and discounts on parts.

We sure do. Tuff Stuff has been a leader in commercial strength equipment for 40 years. Their unique look and functional operation continually impress users in gyms and fitness rooms across the US and the globe.

    Thank you both for such a quick response to my leg press issue. I realize you threw an extra appointment onto an already busy day. My boss was so excited about the quick turnaround that he asked me to take pictures of Kevin fixing it so he can highlight the great service and relationship we have with Fit Service in our April newsletter.
