I had a fellow Facebook group Dream Homie* ask me about where to store her workout gear in her small space. It got me thinking about the days when I was disciplined and worked out at home like a champ.
That is until I broke my leg playing roller derby.
I didn’t just break my leg, I broke my tibia and fibula, which meant I needed to have surgery so they could stick a big metal rod up in there, in order to stabilize it. So ya, I’m pretty much bionic (if you wanna see some awesome pictures click here).
Let’s just say, my discipline slowly deteriorated after that, much like my left calf muscle.
Wow, ok, get to the point, Michelle.
The point is, that if you want to guarantee yourself a workout at home, it needs to be convenient. But, not just that, it can’t compromise how your home looks! Check out this week’s video with four ideas for hiding your workout gear in a small space.
1. In a nearby closet.
If you have the luxury of a nearby closet, get rid of all the stuff you don’t need and replace it with your workout gear. Get a Rubbermaid container or a basket and now you can easily pull your workout gear out and keep your space looking like your dream home!
2. In a cabinet with closed doors.
When working out at home was a priority in my life, this is where I hid my gear so I could easily access it whenever I was ready to bang out a workout. You’ll want to ensure that the cabinet is the right height and width, and that’s it’s deep enough to fit all of your workout gear. 1. Ikea | 2. Ikea | 3. Structube | 4. Structube | 5. West Elm
3. In an ottoman with storage.
4. In a nice, sturdy basket.
Ok, I get it; maybe you don’t feel like spending a bunch of much money on a storage solution. Totally fair. Instead find a nice, sturdy basket big enough to house all of the gear you need to store. Find an empty corner in your room and you’re good to go.
