Erv the Elliptical Wizard


Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Friday, March 22, 2013


I love my elliptical. You know that. Fortunately, we bought the extended warranty, because I seem to be loving it to death. I've gone through a couple of belts, bearings, etc. I don't think this is necessarily due to my stunning athletic ability. Maybe these things wear out quickly, maybe they don't expect you to use them every day, or maybe we got a lemon. Doesn't matter. We have the extended warranty. And part of the extended warranty includes Erv, the Elliptical Wizard. He's the tech who usually comes out and performs maintenance on my chariot. He's a great guy and super thorough. Trust me, the fact that we've had several mishaps with the machine is not a reflection of the man's work. He always goes above and beyond and gets the thing running, good as new.

Thing is, I've mentioned him so many times on my SparkPage, I felt like y'all should meet him. So, I thought it'd be fun if I filmed him on his most recent call. He was fine with that, got a kick out of it. Further proof that you can indeed, make a video of just about anything. Let me introduce you to--ERV, THE ELLIPTICAL WIZARD!

    Erv's cute - if the engineers are going to be that cute maybe we'd all take out extended warranties

    I wonder if Erv stays fit by testing broken/repaired fitness equipment of if he has a fitness regimen of his own. Hmmmmm???? Great video Shelli!

    You the first person I have seen with the new Treadmaster Elliptical! I have an elliptical and a treadmill, but often wish I had it all rolled into one machine.

    I love that you have hula hoops as wall art in your home gym. Erv is such a good sport to let you film him. He was quite a natural in front of the camera, very at ease. His mechanical skills make him worth his weight in gold. Maybe your elliptical makes strange noises just because she misses Erv and wants to see him? Something to think about. Next time you get a chance, tell Erv The Elliptical wizard that he rocks!

    Here I am, many thousands of miles away and yet you've managed to brighten my day with views of your home gym, Kermit the frog framed with hula hoops in the background and the mending of your elliptical by Erv the Elliptical Wizard. Thanks Shelli!
