Just as proper diet and exercise help humans live healthier lives, preventive maintenance is the key to getting the most out of electronics and appliances and this includes fitness equipments. Preventing service calls and keeping exercise machines running with minimal downtime requires more than just wiping down the equipment and reporting malfunctioning units to the technician. A regular maintenance schedule can truly extend the life of your equipment and save money in the long run. Not only does this minimize equipment downtime by identifying problems before they occur, but it also can avert safety issues—such as worn cables or loose bolts—which can result in injuries.
Regular, planned maintenance is strongly advised as it affects not only how long your equipment lasts but also how long it stays visually presentable.
