I work on treadmills only.
I can repair any treadmill. Many times repair or service comes down to the economics of the treadmill and not by the customers funds available.
Things I ask customers before setting up service:
- How old is the treadmill? There comes a point if a treadmill has never been serviced, it may become a money trap. Meaning, if I repair an obvious thing, it may not be long before something else goes bad. I leave that with the customer.
- How much did you pay for the treadmill? If anyone had paid less than $600 for a treadmill, depending on the age of the machine and the required repair, it might make better sense to just buy a new one. Again… I leave that with the customer.
- Was it bought new or used? Sometimes a customer gets a really good deal on a very expensive treadmill but only paid a few hundred dollars. If this is the case, I will let them know a repair may be in order no matter what the repair is unless it just becomes an economic issue.
All my repairs include educating the customer about how they can do simple maintenance themselves so they don’t need to call a service provider… if they can find one. I also go over safety issues since a treadmill is possibly one of the most dangerous pieces of fitness equipment if not respect for what it is intended for.
- Belt slipping issues – instructions rarely tell the customer there are two points of contact that could require adjustment. If the customer over tightens one of those points, I could wear out bearings in a motor or the guide rollers.
- Electrical Issues – A treadmill is a heavy duty appliance and draws a whole lot of amperage. Many customers either plug into a shared circuit or a ground fault… both are a no no.
- Location of the treadmill – Customers are always unaware that a treadmills motor and electronics heat up and cool down. When a customer has their treadmill in an uncontrolled environment, extreme temperature changes creates condensation and will eventually cause electronic failure. Dusty areas are just as bad; I can’t tell you how many customers have the treadmill right next to a dryer.
I have always loved what I do… only now I am retired; however, by retirement rules I am allowed to make so much money, so I do still provide occasional service.
You just found someone who provides service on treadmills with the lost art of actually caring for the customer.
I have been providing treadmill service for close to 20 years. I do not have this website set up to make it look like it is a large company. When you call… you get me, and the technician that comes to you is, well…me. If you would like to read the story of how I actually got started, check out my about page on this website.
I didn’t set this website with flashy or silver tongued content to sell you on my service; my website is to make sure the consumer gets the information needed to help them make the best decision for taking care of their treadmill. So this website has down to Earth content with you in mind, and hopefully I have set it up for easy navigation.
I don’t sell treadmills, but I do have affiliate links to the treadmills I recommend on my Products page. On that page you will find maintenance tips, instructions and a list of things needed to do it yourself.
Standard Service is only $150 (Labor pricing for Repairs does not include parts)
- Treadmill service – I make sure your treadmill continues to provide you with the performance you need for conditioning or training.
- Treadmill repair – I promise to make sure your treadmill is economically feasible to repair. I am not talking about your financial pocketbook; I am talking about the actual treadmill. If you have ever heard about buying a used car and it becoming a money pit, and you have to keep dropping money on it, then you barely turn around and it needs serviced again… that is what I want you to avoid getting into.
- Treadmill instruction – One of the things I pride myself on, is educating the customer on providing self-maintenance on their treadmill. I will teach you that before I leave. I also go over how to properly start your treadmill and cover treadmill safety.
