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.
