Personal Gym Organization

Workout in pajamas? We’re in! That sounds awesome, but we realize it is a little more than that. Creating a home gym space that is consistently neat and motivating is quite the task. There are so many different pieces of fitness equipment that one can own (shake weight anyone??) that can quickly take over the space and leave a cluttered mess. Keep it simple and utilize vertical space to create an environment that works for you and your physique!

Organize your home gym
Make the most of your space.
If you are able to dedicate a whole room to fitness or a corner in the garage, make the most of the space you have. Either way, vertical space is your best friend. It keeps things off the floor and makes everything easy to see. A hanger organizer works great for resistance bands and jump ropes, and also keeps them from getting tangled. You can also use wall space for a calendar or workout schedule! If you have a variety of dumbbells opt for a vertical rack to save on space.

Keep it simple.
Less is more here. If you have the space and constantly use the treadmill, bike, elliptical, and stair master, than more power to you and you should keep them all! But the same quality of workouts can be done with less equipment. Choosing multi-functional equipment or opting for one bulky piece will help to keep the space from getting over-crowded.

Configuring what goes where in order to utilize all equipment can be a daunting task. Depending on your workout routine you can either organize by activity or by frequency. If you are an avid yogi, it may be a good idea to get a large basket or bin to keep all of the tools in one place. Same goes for boxing (spin, tennis, etc.) equipment, as well as keeping all the towels or workout videos together. Another option would be to keep the most frequently used items together in one space. If you use a set of dumbbells for every workout and a stretching band, make them easily accessible. If you like to keep your workout shoes in your fitness space, a bench (with or without storage) would be a great place to store them.

An easy but effective way to keeping an organized fitness space is to return all equipment to their original places after each workout. This will help to maintain a clean, clutter-free and balanced space.
