Where to Put Exercise Equipment That’s Consuming Space
A home gym sounds great at first—that is, until you realize there's no more room for storing your weights or elliptical. It's easy if you only have a few dumbbells, but it becomes more difficult when you have large exercise equipment. If you'll be using the great outdoors as your gym more than your indoor gym once the weather warms up, Access Self Storage in Oakland, NJ, has some tips on where to put your workout gear so you can clear up space around the house.
3 Places to Store Your Exercise Equipment
Make a space in the garage.
If you have a two-car garage, you may have enough space to store your workout equipment in a corner. In fact, you could set up your home gym right inside the garage instead of in a spare room. Look into stands, holders, and shelving for your gear to keep it organized and your garage free of clutter.
Use baskets and behind-the-door storage.
When you don’t want to commit to a permanent storage solution like wall mounting your equipment, baskets can help keep your items contained. To maximize the use of vertical space, use bins that stack for smaller items like weights, bungees, or workout bands. Or, install an over-the-door hanger to hold things such as bands and yoga mats. This not only keeps them organized but also won’t take up a single square inch on your floor!
Store them in self storage.
When building an outdoor shed on your property isn’t an option, you may want to look at storage alternatives. How about storing your equipment in a self storage unit near you? You can book a ground-level storage unit for your workout gear, then it’ll be simple to move everything in and to store it away.
