Maintaining and Storing Exercise Equipment
Before you pack up your exercise equipment for storage, it’s a good idea to make sure everything is clean and well maintained. According to Angie’s List, exercise equipment can accumulate germs and bacteria if it’s not well maintained. They recommend a weekly cleaning of equipment including:
- Exercise machines
- Weights and kettle bells
- Fitness balls
- Resistance bands
It’s also important to clean accessories you bring to the gym like arm bands footwear and gym bags. Make sure you keep yourself and your fitness clothes clean as well.
Another way to help yourself when planning to store exercise equipment is to try to find equipment that isn’t too bulky or difficult to handle. If you have machinery that is easily folded up or compact you have more storage space.
Organization is also critical. When storing weights, try to store them on a rack so that they are secure. Loose weights can damage other items or equipment you keep in your portable storage container. Make sure any attachments or loose items related to your equipment are secure as well. Organize your weight rack by keeping the heavier weights on the bottom and the lighter weights on the top of your rack.
