What is remanufactured fitness equipment?

The remanufacturing process is a process in which a piece of commercial strength equipment or cardio equipment is “restored,” like a ’57 Chevy might be restored.

“Remanufactured fitness equipment” is a phrase used to better and more extensively describe the thorough treatment these machines receive.  More rudimentary processes, which yield a less impressive finished product, are typically known as “serviced or refurbished fitness equipment.” Here are a few of the steps in the remanufacturing process, simplified:

  • The item to be remanufactured is diagnostically tested for any system flaws. This insures that any parts or systems not functioning to the manufacturer’s specifications are labeled for repair or replacement.
  • Sandblast and powder coat the frame with new enamel that is baked on.
  • Re-build motors, rollers (bearings) and elevation systems. We use an independent motor house which specializes in building and refurbishing electric motors.
  • The piece is then reassembled with new parts, belts, decks, and hardware as needed to match new equipment specifications.
  • Refinish exterior with paint, new graphics, etc.
  • Finally, the piece is diagnostically tested by certified specialists to insure performance. All remanufactured units leave in perfect working order and are waranteed.

How long does it take for delivery?

New items: as quickly as 1 week, but usually only 3-4 weeks. Remanufactured items: only 3-4 weeks…sometimes more quickly. USA Fitness Direct wants to make the delivery of your fitness equipment convenient, fast, and easy! This is why we use experienced and professional Van Lines which blanket wrap and carefully move each item by hand. We often utilize the same carriers and teams which make the factory deliveries for Life Fitness®, Precor®, Star Trac® and Cybex®*.  Unlike most companies, NO CURB SIDE delivery (unless requested by a client). Our Van Lines deliver your equipment inside your home, commercial fitness center, corporate gym or office.

Flooring: cardio mats, weight room mats and/or gym mats are typically delivered in approximately 1 week. Rolled rubber flooring takes between 1 and 2 weeks for production and/or custom cuts and up to 1 week in transit for a total of about 2 – 3 weeks for actual delivery. UPS or Federal Express are used for smaller orders and common carriers are used for more sizable weight room mat and rolled rubber orders.

Where is USA Fitness Direct located?

We ship commercial equipment from 4 facilities: Utah, Texas, California. Our headquarters is located in California, USA. Not all of these locations are utilized for the remanufactured and/or refurbished fitness equipment. Some are strictly for new commercial fitness equipment so please feel free to e-mail the sales department or call or toll free with any questions on availability and shipping.

How does USA Fitness Direct handle warranty issues?

All new commercial fitness equipment is covered by a factory warranty and serviceable through the manufacturer. Remanufactured fitness equipment coverage is coordinated through USA Fitness Direct and technicians are available in most areas.

Are lease programs available for commercial fitness equipment or residential equipment being placed in a home?

The lease programs we have available are only available as business solutions and are not available for residential clients. USA Fitness Direct is a vendor with a large number of sources for business finance but none offer programs for personal/residential use. We gladly accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover cards from those who would like to pay for an equipment purchase over time. Also, we often assist clients interested in computing a monthly payment to have the balance paid on a desired time-line.
