How to Lubricate the Tony Little Gazelle

Save

The Tony Little Gazelle is a compact, in-home aerobic device. The suspended pedals move in a back and forth gliding motion, making this a low-impact exercise option. The Gazelle is a lightweight cardio machine, weighing between 40 and 50 lbs., depending on the model. Since there is no motor or tread belt, the Gazelle doesn't require a lot of maintenance. However, the manufacturer recommends oiling the device, if it begins squeaking or making other noises.

Things You'll Need

  • White lithium grease
  • Dry cloth
  • Petroleum jelly
  • Water-displacing spray oil like WD-40
  • Spray a light coating of white lithium grease on moving parts -- such as the joint where the swing arms meet the pedal arms -- and the joint where the swing arms meet the frame.

  • Wipe any excess grease off with a dry, soft cloth.

  • Apply a thin coat of petroleum jelly to the axle tube at the top of the machine.

  • Spray a water-displacing oil on the cable holders at the top and bottom of the rear swing cables. Wipe off any excess oil.

Tips & Warnings

  • Wipe down your Gazelle with a clean, dry cloth after each use. This reduces the amount of dirt and sweat that will build-up on the machine.
  • Wipe the hand grips down with a clean, damp cloth after each use.
