Identify The Workout Space

Before starting, it's important to take a practical and thorough assessment of your space. Consider the blueprint or vision and the square footage available. It's vital to focus on equipment and tools that will aid in achieving your goals and keeping your motivation high. Additionally, ensure there is ample space for free movement during exercise.


Once you have established a clear space for a home gym it will be easier to get rid of the stuff that isn't really serving you. If you aren't using it, the time has come to let it go. This could be a great reason to have a yard sale or flea market and even make a little extra cash. 

Next, make sure the space is completely dedicated to working out and exercising. If your space has laundry, piles of papers, or anything else unnecessary it can be distracting. Having a home gym that is clutter-free will allow more mindful, focused workouts and even mindsets. 

How to Stay Organized

Tiered Carts 

Tiered carts are a great place to start when it comes to the best ways to organize a home gym. This is especially true for individuals who work with a lot of hand weights. On the opposite hand, someone who may use limited weights may be better off investing in a dumbbell storage stand. 

However, tiered carts can be used for just about anything. Battle ropes, resistance bands, ab roller wheels, and boxing gloves, are just a few examples of home gym items that can be easily stored on these devices. 

Storage Baskets

Storage baskets are nothing new, and typically, people bring them into their homes for anything from living room blankets to baby and pet toys. On that note, it is time to bring them into the home gym. 

Being able to take more oversized, cumbersome items and contain them in one area is game-changing. Exercise mats, yoga balls, and portable pilates bars are just a few of those bigger items that sometimes can be a bit harder to organize and manage, but with storage baskets, just about anything is possible. 

Heavy-Duty Home Gym Racks

For those who might be working with smaller spaces, incorporating a heavy-duty home gym rack is a great idea. Just as it sounds, after being mounted on the wall, the prongs on gym racks can typically hold up to 40 pounds. This product on Amazon is a great example. Home gyms with these racks take neatness and tidiness to the next level.   

Yoga & Exercise Wall Hanger

For individuals who are especially looking to preserve and promote an aesthetic, the yoga & exercise wall hanger is a great home gym organizational idea. This wall hanger on Amazon is a good example.

Designed to be both functional and cute, products like these not only store mats but also add a shelf for added decor and hooks for even more storage. Talk about a win-win-win. 

Blue Mountain Self Storage understands the importance of organizing and storing, especially when it comes to homes. Home gyms definitely see a lot of action, and by making sure it is organized, families and individuals will be able to maximize their time and, more importantly, space.
