When peddaling on this exercise equipment, it seems to be slipping on the downward motion.

Non eof the categories to pick from below match our needs. Exercise equipment: VITAL FITNESS MB-261 When pedalling, the exercise equipment seems to be slipping going downwards on the peddaling motion. Not sure if we have used up something with the resistence, if we need new parts, or if it needs to be callibarated. Besides this, my MB-261 has been leaking a black powder since we purchased it. This could be normal, not sure. Hope you can help me. Regards Franklin

the electronics stopped working.

Deep pain in my right hip while walking


Symptoms of Hip Pain

Depending on the condition that's causing your hip pain, you might feel the discomfort in your:
  • thigh
  • inside of the hip joint
  • groin
  • outside of the hip joint
  • buttocks
Sometimes pain from other areas of the body, such as the back or groin (from ahernia), can radiate to the hip.
You might notice that your pain gets worse with activity, especially if it's caused by arthritis. Along with the pain, you might have reduced range of motion. Some people develop a limp from persistent hip pain.

Hip Pain Relief

If your hip pain is caused by a muscle or tendon strain, osteoarthritis, or tendinitis, you can usually relieve it with an over-the-counter pain medication such as Tylenol or a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug such as Motrin or Aleve.
Rheumatoid arthritis treatments also include prescription anti-inflammatory medications such as corticosteroids, or disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs) like methotrexate and sulfasalazine.

Another way to relieve hip pain is by holding ice to the area for about 15 minutes a few times a day. Try to rest the affected joint as much as possible until you feel better.
If you have arthritis, exercising the hip joint with low-impact exercises, stretching, and resistance training can reduce pain and improve joint mobility. For example,swimming is a good non-impact exercise for arthritis. Physical therapy can also help increase your range of motion.
When osteoarthritis becomes so severe that the pain is intense or the hip joint becomes deformed, a total hip replacement (arthroplasty) may be a consideration. People who fracture their hip sometimes need surgery to fix the fracture or replace the hip.
Call your health care provider if your pain doesn't go away, or if you notice swelling, redness, or warmth around the joint. Also call if you have hip pain at night or when you are resting.
Get medical help right away if:
  • The hip pain came on suddenly.
  • A fall or other injury triggered the hip pain.
  • Your joint looks deformed or is bleeding.
  • You heard a popping noise in the joint when you injured it.
  • The pain is intense.
  • You can't put any weight on your hip.

How do I remove the pedals on a 8500 life fitness recumbent bike


Replacement Parts for Fitness Exercise Equipment at SPORTSMITH

Using a wrench, you remove the left pedal as you would loosen a normal, left hand threaded bolt. The right side is a reverse thread and would need to be loosened in the opposite direction.
