Gym and Fitness Equipment Storage Solutions

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Every New Year, the number one resolution is a combination of losing weight, getting fit and eating better. Many people fall short of their goals or tire of the equipment they’ve purchased particularly as the weather warms. If you’ve reached your goal or have decided to stop your exercise program then you will need a place for gym equipment storage. That is where self-storage comes into play!

Exercise Equipment Storage Ideas

Properly storing sports and fitness equipment is important when not in use. If you have the space in your home to create a home gym or workout room, then this would be the optimum fitness storage solution. A basement or mudroom are also great places to store your fitness equipment. A problem occurs, however, when the treadmill or weights are no longer being used for working out and morph into a place to hang clothes and stack boxes. When this starts to happen, renting a self-storage unit for your exercise equipment is a great way to create much needed space in your home.

The Top Tips for Exercise Equipment Storage

In order to keep exercise and fitness equipment in good working order, it is important to follow the right storage preparation steps. Consult the manufacturer’s instructions for specific information about your treadmill, elliptical machine or home weight collection.

  • When placing your fitness or sports equipment in a storage unit, make sure that it is properly cleaned.
  • Keep weights stored on a rack with the lighter weights on top and the heavier weights on the bottom.
  • Protect the weight rack with a canvas cover.
  • Elliptical machines or treadmills should be covered with a canvas during long-term storage.

Storing Exercise Equipment in a Self-Storage Unit

Renting a self-storage unit for exercise equipment will free up storage in the home for other household storage needs. Fitness equipment can easily be rotated in your storage unit for seasonal purposes. Storage units come in a variety of sizes from 5×5 to 10×30 that would be perfect to store the extra workout equipment that you no longer have room for. A 5×10 storage unit would be a great size to store a treadmill or elliptical machine and still have room to store other belongings. ezStorage has secure storage solutions systems such as state-of-the-art video surveillance, individually alarmed storage units and keypad gated entry, which will give customers peace-of-mind that their fitness equipment is safe while in storage.
