Having a home gym is incredibly convenient, efficient, and not to mention motivational for a lot of people. However, despite all of the perks to having a home gym, when it comes time to move your equipment, you might start to have more gripes with your various pieces of equipment than praises – no matter how much you usually use your in-home gym! Moving small gym equipment isn’t difficult if you know how to do it.
However, obviously your home gym is more than worth it to have, and it’s really just not wanting to deal with moving day that’s giving you these issues. So what’s the best way to move your gym equipment, and how do you make sure you’re moving your equipment properly? We’ve got all the tips and tricks you need to know.
It’s great that you’ve found the most convenient way to stay fit and healthy without having to travel to the gym or be in an uncomfortable environment. Especially as COVID continues, it’s amazing to have a space where you can set up even a small space to focus on your health.
To move your gym equipment, you’re going to want to take a lot of care in the process to make sure your things are kept safe, and that nothing is broken or mishandled.
Before your movers come, or before you carry out your own move, you’ll want to make sure your equipment is fully cleaned and sanitized. This might be a given, but it’s especially important to make sure the things you sweat around and use the most are in perfectly clean condition, as things often get jumbled and interspersed with one another while in a moving truck. If you’re not comfortable with having your other household items possibly touching your gym equipment, it’s time to give everything a full clean to make sure you can move efficiently and with the utmost cleanliness.
Organize your loose equipment, like yoga mats, weights, or other smaller tools like blocks or foam rollers. If you’re not using professional packing services that come along with your movers, make sure to pack like with like, and don’t mix lighter or more fragile items in your boxes with heavy weights. This will avoid your weights causing damage to your other items.
When moving weights, you’re going to want to take extra care to make sure that your boxes are strong enough to hold their weight. Don’t try to use too big of a box and fill it with weights – the spread out area will weaken the box and make things way too hard to carry. It’s better to use several smaller boxes than one large one when moving weights. If you can’t find boxes that are of high enough quality to hold your weights, use plastic totes or bins instead to ensure your safety and the safety of your weights.
When you’re moving something as small as a yoga mat, you’re still going to want to take the utmost care in making sure that your gym equipment is kept safe and prepared properly for moving.
