In the event of an item being received that either develops a fault or is found to be faulty upon delivery, we will arrange to have this item collected free of charge or an engineer to call at the discretion of the manufacturer. Items for collection must be packed in secure appropriate packaging and be made available for collection by our carriers within 24hrs of you notifying us that they are faulty.

All installation prices quoted on our website are for ground floor installations within 100 miles from our Northampton Head Office (postcode NN3 8RJ). If your installation address is further than this, we will contact you prior to processing payment if the charge is more than the figure stated. If you require further information, please contact us on 01604 673000 for a cost prior to ordering. We regret we are unable to accommodate installations to offshore postcodes.
If you require installation on a product/products in the catalogue, the time between order and installation may be longer than for that of delivery only. Our guidelines are up to 14 working days from the time we receive the completed Install Access Form (no installation will take place until we have received this important document). The 14 working days will not start until the form is received. We will always try to arrive on time, but we will not be held responsible for late arrival due to unforeseen circumstances.
It is imperative that the space for the product(s) has been cleared and that access is unrestricted. If the installer is unable to commence work due to the area not being cleared or access not being available at the agreed time, Bodypower Sports Plc reserves the right to charge £25 for every half hour the installation engineer is unable to start work. We must be informed at the time of placing the order where the product(s) are to be installed. All prices quoted are for ground floor installations in the main building of the property or a garage at the side of the main part of the building. Installations above or below ground floor or outside the main building (i.e. in an outhouse, etc.), may be subject to surcharge, especially if not mentioned at the time of order.
Bodypower Sports Plc are within their rights to refuse any installation if the installer deems the installation location or access point to be hazardous, or the request unreasonable. If the product does not fit into the area where the installation is requested and a representative of Bodypower Sports Plc did not measure the area, then Bodypower Sports Plc cannot be held responsible. Therefore, the customer will incur the cost of the visit. Agreed installation times must be adhered to.
Adequate parking/vehicle access must be provided by the customer. Any charges incurred by the installer for parking will be chargeable. If the installation time is extended due to inadequate parking/access then the extra time will also be chargeable at £50 per hour.
All returned items will be on a delivery only basis, no installation will be carried out unless agreed by Fitness Superstore prior to delivery.
All products on our website and in our catalogues are covered by a manufacturer's warranty. If you are using any of the products in an environment other than in a residential house, you must check to see if the product you are purchasing has a warranty for the environment you are going to use it in. For example, a product with a "home use" warranty will have no warranty whatsoever if used in a Full or Light Commercial environment. If you are unsure as to which classification of usage you require, please ask and we will be happy to check if the chosen products are suitable. No manufacturer's warranty covers failure of a product if caused by unreasonable or abusive use, if the customer alters the product in any way or if the customer fails to provide reasonable and necessary care. Warranties also vary from manufacturer to manufacturer. If you require clarification of the terms for particular products, we will be happy to supply these for you if not already detailed on the website.
Non UK Mainland Warranties (including Isle of Wight, Isle of Man, Europe & ROW - Rest of World)
If you live outside the UK & Ireland, it is advisable that you check whether or not the product you are wishing to purchase will have warranty outside the UK & Ireland. Labour warranties for certain UK offshore postcodes may not be available.
Your statutory rights remain unaffected by the consumer guarantee.
WEEE (Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment) Regulations
Each EU Member State now has a legal obligation to minimise the disposal of WEEE in landfill sites. The broad aim of the WEEE regulations is to address the environmental impacts of electrical and electronic equipment when it reaches the end of its life.
We all have a responsibility to contribute to the reuse, recycling and other forms of recovery of WEEE under these Regulations. Over 75% of waste electrical goods end up in landfill, where lead and other toxins contained in the electrical goods can cause soil and water contamination which can lead to negative effects on human health and the environment.
Electrical and Electronic Equipment that was made after 13 August 2005 should display the crossed-out wheelie bin symbol on the packaging or product. The purpose of the symbol is to encourage householders to dispose of their WEEE separately from household waste.
What can you do?
Reuse: If your old machine is still working, do you know somebody who would like to use it? There are many organisations such as schools, clubs, residential homes etc., who would be very happy to have the use of your old equipment. In addition, there are organisations that will reuse and repair electrical and electronic equipment and some even run "cash for recycling" schemes.
Recycle: If your old equipment is no longer useful, please recycle it.
Alternatively, as a distributor we are committed to reducing the amount of WEEE that goes in to land fill. We are doing our bit for the environment by offering free take-back on a like for like basis when you purchase a new machine from us. This means, for example, that if you buy a new cross trainer from us, you can return your old cross trainer to us and we will arrange appropriate disposal of the old machine. Please note: it must be a similar product, e.g. an old exercise bike for a new one, an old step machine for a new one, etc. This must be arranged with us at the time of placing an order with us for the new product. If you would like to do this, please call us on 01604 806 140 for details of where to deliver your old machine.
Fitness Superstore/Bodypower Sports Plc is responsible for the collection, treatment and recycling of the waste batteries we supply. Recycling bins for batteries are located in all Fitness Superstore/Bodypower Sports Plc showrooms, so that anyone purchasing from us can return and deposit their used portable batteries.
Batteries we accept:
- AA or AAA batteries
- Batteries used in our product monitor consoles
- Batteries found in our wristwatches
Batteries we do not accept:
- Industrial batteries
- Automotive batteries
If you require information on how to recycle these types of batteries you should contact your supplier or your local council offices.
Benefits of recycling
Recycling unwanted electrical products is better for the environment. Lead and other toxins contained in electrical goods can cause soil and water contamination. This can have a very harmful effect on the natural habitat, wildlife and also human health. When situated near populated areas these toxins can cause problems to communities as their water and soil is polluted.
Many of the electrical items that we throw away can be repaired or recycled. Recycling products helps save natural resources and also reduces the environmental and health risks associated with sending waste electrical goods to landfill.
Discount voucher codes
We run several discount voucher codes throughout the year. Find the terms and conditions for any current live codes on our Fitness Superstore Voucher Codes page.
