Fitness Equipment Service Technicians

Fitness equipment service technicians play a crucial role in ensuring that exercise equipment is functioning properly. One of the most important aspects of their job is preventive maintenance, which involves regularly inspecting and servicing equipment to prevent breakdowns and extend its lifespan.

Preventive maintenance is critical for several reasons, it helps to minimize downtime and equipment failures. When equipment breaks down, it can be costly to repair, and it can also disrupt gym operations and inconvenience members. Preventive maintenance can catch small issues before they become major problems, reducing the likelihood of unexpected breakdowns and ensuring that equipment is always available for use. Preventive maintenance can help to ensure the safety of gym members. Faulty equipment can be dangerous, and regular maintenance can catch potential hazards before they cause harm. For example, if a treadmill belt is worn down or a weight machine cable is frayed, a technician can identify the issue and replace the part before it causes an accident.

Regular maintenance can help to extend the lifespan of equipment. Fitness equipment is an investment, and gyms want to get as much use out of it as possible. By keeping equipment in good condition, service technicians can help to prevent wear and tear and ensure that machines continue to function properly over time.

At Beyond the Basics Fitness, in order to carry out preventive maintenance, our service technicians typically follow a checklist of tasks designed to keep equipment in good working order. These tasks may include inspecting and lubricating moving parts, tightening screws and bolts, checking electrical connections, and testing equipment for proper function. Some tasks may be performed on a regular schedule, weekly, monthly, bi-monthly, every three months, or even bi-yearly or yearly depending on the type of equipment and how often it is used.

In addition to preventive maintenance, service technicians may also perform corrective maintenance, which involves repairing equipment that has already broken down. While preventive maintenance is preferable, sometimes equipment failures are unavoidable. When this happens, it is important to have a service technician who can quickly diagnose and repair the problem to minimize downtime. Here in Calgary and area, Beyond the Basics Fitness has an entire room dedicated to parts to minimize the downtime when equipment does need repair. As a local Calgary and Southern Alberta owned and operated business, we are happy to assist with almost ALL COMMERCIAL makes and models of Fitness Equipment.

Beyond maintenance, our service technicians also provide other services to gyms and fitness centers like installing new equipment or helping with equipment relocation. They will also provide training to gym staff on how to properly use and maintain equipment to prevent future issues.
