Can I Make My Elliptical More Sturdy on the Carpet?

Possible Fixes

    If your elliptical isn’t sturdy on your thin carpet, you may be able to improve the situation by adjusting the feet on the machine or by using a mat or piece of plywood. Most ellipticals feature feet that you can raise or lower by twisting them individually. If your floor surface is uneven, adjusting the height of one or more of the feet could fix the problem. A thin mat or a piece of plywood between your machine and carpet could also help level the floor surface.
