Okay, so I thought I would show all of you how I keep my exercise equipment from taking over the house. I use quite a bit of equipment since I workout solely at home but since that home is a tiny 922 sq.ft., I can't have it lying around all of the time. Here are my "secrets" to keeping it available yet hidden.
First, this is my step. I use it as a weight bench and as an aerobic step. I have it hidden under my love seat.
Here are all of my risers for the step bench and high step, hidden inside are my resistance bands and resistance tubing. It's also been known to double as a toy hiding area: )
I bought this cheap little shelf unit at Wal Mart and it works perfectly for storing my barbell plates, my gloves, my weighted ball, weighted gloves, ankle weights, push-up bars and yoga strap.
Tucked neatly by the shelf are my barbell and yoga mat. They hide behind my curtains when I'm not using them.
I am able to hide my shelf unit and my high step behind my chair so they are not even noticed when we have guests over. It's great because I have everything ready to go but hidden away at the same time.
My hand weights hide underneath my large sofa. I discovered that they were scratching up the floor so I stuck furniture pads on them and problem solved!
So there you have it, it is possible to have all of your workout equipment at home for your workouts. If I can do it in this tiny house, anyone can!
How many of you workout solely at home? How do you store your equipment?
