Stabilizing an elliptical machine is a relatively simple process that can be completed in a few minutes depending on the origin of the problem. To stabilize your elliptical machine, you need access to the machine, the ability to move it and a wrench.Know More
Examine the frame and design of your elliptical machine. In some inexpensive models, the design is very flimsy. This may be the cause of your problem. If your machine has built-in inadequacies, you may need to consider purchasing a different, more stable elliptical machine.
Check the floor underneath your elliptical machine. Oftentimes, elliptical machines are unstable because they are not on a sufficiently rigid surface. Make sure the floor underneath the machine is hard and flat. If there is carpet underneath your elliptical, try to find an area with a hard non-carpeted surface to move it to.
Look at all of the connections and bolts in the frame of your elliptical machine. Depending on the model of machine, these bolts may be in different locations. If you find any frame bolts that are loose, tighten them with your wrench and re-assess the stabilization problem.
