The treadmills take up the most room, and you will need to allow about 80cm x 200cm (36” x 86”). You will also need a mains power supply close to most machines.
10. Where can the machines be used?
The heavier machines cannot be carried up flights of stairs, or maneuvered around very easily. If you are in any doubt, please contact us to discuss your individual requirements.

13. Do you make credit checks?
More of an identity check really, we will ask you prove your identity and its link to the household the machine has been delivered to, for example a current utility bill or drivers licence. The cheque, standing order or credit card payment will need to be completed by the account holder, and this should match the signature on the hire agreement when delivered. All our machines are data tagged for security.
14. What if I haven’t exercised for a while?
We recommend that if you are new to exercise you contact your GP and get some advice on the sort of machine that would be most suitable for you, take our details along to your doctor and discuss the options. In all cases where you are starting a new exercise program, allow time to warm up and down with some simple stretching. Handy hints and tips can be found in our weblog and newsletter.
