Full Service

Have your machine correctly set-up and prevent future problems

“A full service will prevent breakdowns and extend your machine’s life” Jon Isaacs, Chartered Engineer

“Hi Jon, Just wanted to give you a review as promised. Kris and Will came to Bournemouth last week to service my treadmill and  cross trainer. Very impressed with your prompt service , 2 lovely blokes. Will definitely use your company again, Regards” L & C, July 2020

The 3 Golden Rules for maximum machine life:


  1. Have it regularly maintained
  2. Make sure it is correctly set-up
  3. Use it for the purpose for which it was built

All machines require regular maintenance and having a full service will ensure your machine is set up and ready to use according to the manufacturer’s specification. A full service is the periodic, detailed check of a machine’s performance with respect to usage and the completion of due maintenance:

  • A full service will identify any safety related problems
  • Check that important aspects are functioning correctly
  • Provide preventative maintenance and adjustments to stop the onset of problems
  • Identify early signs of breakdown that would otherwise not be spotted by the user so that corrective actions can be taken before until an “out-of-order” failure occurs.

What a full service does not do:

• Fix existing problems (unless the problem can be resolved by virtue of the service procedure). Known problems should always be repaired before conducting a service.

• Address cosmetic and non-primary problems such as general wear and tear such as to trim and upholstery, broken bottle holders, damaged foot straps, problems with TV (eg. signal and channel lists), connected media (eg. ipod leads USB ports and their operation) and internet media (eg. 3rd party user apps and their functionality)

• Replace dry cell batteries which can be easily changed by the user
