Perhaps you're getting a little too much friction there and that's where you're recognizing the squeak. If its not that, perhaps your gliders are dirty. The gliders are where the rollers, the grooves on the foot plant part of the elliptical where those shoes fit into and maybe perhaps that's dirty and we need to clean them out. But more often than not, more often than not and probably close to what I was just talking about, an elliptical squeaks because of neglect. Just pure and simple. They probably have not been, they haven't been cleaned properly or they haven't been, you haven't done any regular maintenance on it. That's probably the biggest reason why most people's ellipticals squeak is because just good old fashioned neglect. That's why the elliptical squeaks from Aaron Hill here at Fitness for Life.
