In the realm of machinery, preventive maintenance is a constant necessity. Regular inspection and upkeep of fitness equipment are vital to ward off injuries stemming from misuse. It's imperative for all gym, personal training, or home facilities to establish a proactive plan, complete with written guidelines and scheduled inspections. We advise following the instructions below to establish and sustain a secure fitness environment and nurture your Younix® Equipment. Consistent checks play a pivotal role in ensuring preventive maintenance is administered before any equipment can pose a risk of breakage or harm. This guide should be thoroughly read and comprehended by all parties entrusted with the care of both the equipment and its users. This encompasses, but is not confined to, staff, owners, and maintenance personnel. Kindly distribute this guide to all relevant individuals and prominently display it. Encourage everyone to consult this information regularly. It is highly recommended to have supervision by individuals familiar with these procedures whenever Younix® Equipment is in use.


Thorough inspection of Younix® Equipment is imperative, both before and after installation, to ensure the optimal functioning of all components, be they moving or static. Upon commissioning Younix® Equipment, initiate a comprehensive maintenance program with scheduled checks and well-defined guidelines. Document the maintenance schedule meticulously, and ensure that each step is executed accurately. Provide training to all responsible parties to ensure the correct implementation of safety and maintenance procedures. Under no circumstances should any modification or alteration be made to Younix® Equipment. If there is any suspicion or indication of damage or defects, cease usage immediately and prominently display signage indicating that the machine is "OUT OF ORDER." Promptly notify a qualified maintenance provider. Avoid using Younix® Equipment in any manner not intended by its design, as improper use can result in injury. It is highly recommended to securely bolt all Younix® Equipment to the floor to prevent tipping in the event of misuse.


Prior to embarking on any fitness or health program, it is essential to consult with your physician to discuss exercise plans and goals. Familiarize yourself with all warning labels before engaging with any Younix® Equipment. Operating any piece of equipment without a comprehensive understanding of the associated risks is strongly discouraged. Seek guidance from qualified staff members for information on basic operation, proper equipment use, and safety procedures before utilizing Younix® Equipment. Exercise caution by keeping hands and feet at a safe distance from moving parts during equipment use. Ensure that pop-pin selectors are fully inserted into weight stacks to prevent weights from falling or collapsing, potentially causing injury or machine damage. Never attempt to fully remove a selector pin if the stack is engaged or suspended. If a weight stack becomes jammed, promptly inform a qualified maintenance provider—never attempt to repair or modify a malfunctioning machine independently. Maintain complete control of weights during exercise, avoiding the dropping of the weight stack or causing plates to slam against each other, as this can result in damage or injury. Failure to comprehend and adhere to these guidelines for proper use, along with a neglect to train qualified maintenance providers, may lead to serious injury when using Younix® Equipment. Owners and operators of facilities are responsible for ensuring that these precautions are diligently implemented.


Regular and scheduled maintenance, aligned with the Younix® Guidelines, is vital to uphold optimal equipment performance. Crafted from premium-quality components, Younix® Equipment is engineered to necessitate minimal maintenance, boasting an extended lifespan. Nevertheless, regular use inevitably leads to wear and tear, making it imperative for qualified individuals to conduct inspections and document findings. In case of injuries, maintenance and inspection records prove essential. Any identified damage or worn-down parts should be diligently noted and promptly replaced. If damage or the need for replacement is identified, it must be reported and addressed before resuming the use of the equipment. Refer to the guidelines below to structure your safety check and maintenance program.


- Conduct a thorough daily inspection and cleaning of each machine.

- Entrust a qualified individual with the task, thoroughly examining the machine for abnormal movements, noises, or vibrations.

- Cables, Belts, and Pulleys:

Regularly check and inspect cables and belts. As they are designed for regular  replacement, deterioration is inevitable, especially with frequent use. Visually inspect the entire length, paying attention to sections moving over pulleys and the ends affixed to weight or handle objects. Examine cable end fittings for cracks, breaks, blisters/ballooning, or imperfections in the nylon coating, as these are potential signs of damage. Damaged or worn-out parts pose a risk of injury, requiring the suspension of machine use until replacement parts from Younix® are ordered.

Inspect pulleys for damage to the surface, particularly hairline cracks, and pay special attention to the bearings. Any excessive noise, grinding, or vibration could signal damaged or worn-out pulleys, necessitating the suspension of use until replacement parts are obtained from Younix®. 10 Catalogue 2024 

- Frames:

Scrutinize frames for chips or imperfections in the powder coating. In case of cracks, rust, or corrosion, cease machine use and promptly engage a qualified maintenance provider.

- Upholstery:

Designed for replacement when worn out, upholstery should be regularly inspected, especially with frequent machine use. Look for tears, cracks, and rips, as these signs indicate the need for replacement. While damaged upholstery might not necessarily pull a machine out of service, it can harbor germs and bacteria or cause scratches that could lead to illness or injury to users. Regular replacement is advised for hygiene and user safety.


Given the dynamic nature of fitness and strength training, the inevitable accumulation of sweat and body oil necessitates regular equipment cleaning. This accumulation can lead to rust, corrosion, and the breakdown of upholstery and metal finishes. Daily removal of oils and sweat is essential to maintain equipment in optimal condition. The cleaning routine should be conducted at the end of each day, ideally coinciding with the daily inspection to address any issues promptly. It's crucial to clean the machines before the end of the day to prevent corrosive fluids from lingering on the equipment overnight.


Cleaning Checklist:

- Employ a damp cloth to wipe down the frame. For more intensive cleaning, a mixture of mild dish soap and water can be used.

- Dry frames thoroughly with a separate clean cloth to prevent dampness, corrosion, and rust.

- Clean upholstery using diluted dish soap and warm water; for stubborn soiling, a soft bristle brush can be utilized.

- Wipe the upholstery with a dry, clean cloth to ensure complete drying.

Cleaning Note:

- Avoid using ammonia-based cleaners (e.g., Windex, 409, Lysol), solvents, lacquer thinner, acetone, Simple Green, alcohol-based products, harsh chemicals, or similar substances, as they can damage powder coating and upholstery.

- Refrain from using abrasives or powder cleansers.

- Always spray cleaning materials away from machines to prevent overspray damage.

- Additionally, steer clear of oil-based lubricants, as they can harm powder coating and upholstery.

RECOMMENDED WEEKLY CLEANING AND MAINTENANCE For a more thorough cleaning and inspection, we recommend a weekly routine. Follow this checklist to ensure the longevity and optimal performance of your Younix® Equipment:

  • Cables and Fasteners: Check tension, nuts, bolts, and fasteners. Ensure there are no loose connections. If needed, consider using Loctite® Threadlocker 242 for added security.
  • Frames: Use a high-quality automotive or non-appliance wax to protect against corrosive fluid buildup. Avoid harsh cleaners, chemicals, or abrasive materials.
  • Upholstery: Steer clear of alcohol wipes as they can cause drying and cracking of the upholstery. Instead, use a high-quality vinyl upholstery cleaner or a lanolin-based hand cleaner to moisturize the Naugahyde, maintaining its natural flexibility and reducing the chances of cracking. For added shine, furniture wax may be applied following the instructions on the bottle. Avoid harsh chemicals that can dry out the upholstery, and refrain from using colored cloths that may transfer color.
  • Guide Rods: Remove dust and grime with a clean, soft, dry cloth. Lubricate rods with a silicone- or Teflon-based lubricant applied onto a cloth. Avoid using oil-based lubricants.
  • Weight Stacks: Inspect and dust weight stacks. Minor chips can be covered using matte black touch-up paint or a black permanent marker. For light rust areas, use a rust remover. In the case of cracks or severe, non-cosmetic damage, immediately suspend use, display "OUT OF ORDER" signage, inform a qualified maintenance provider, and contact Younix® for replacement parts.
  • Linear Bearings: Clean and lubricate linear bearing shafts weekly for maximum reliability and performance. Inspect for rust before cleaning, and if found, remove it with fine sandpaper or steel wool (avoid abrasive cleaners with steel wool). Dust linear rails with a clean, soft, dry cloth, removing any hair or debris. Apply a small amount of lithium grease to a clean cloth and lightly coat the shafts. Avoid over-application, as excess lubricant can hinder machine performance. If you observe dripping or running lubricant, you have applied too much. Be mindful that someone may need to slide the carriage up and hold it to coat the rods completely.
  • Sealed (Pillow Block) Bearing Pivot Points: Wipe with a clean, dry rag to remove dust and dirt buildup. Lubrication is not required. Check for correct movement.
  • Consistent adherence to this weekly maintenance routine ensures the sustained excellence of your Younix® Equipment.
