Storage solutions. Perhaps storage is not the most exciting part of a home gym, but it is arguably the most important aspect of a solid gym build. Efficient storage solutions transform your room from a space where you simply go to a gym where you want to be.
That’s why we are going over our top five favorite storage pieces to give your gym a touch of oomph and a pinch of organizational excellence.
Let’s start with bar storage.
Okay, your profile rack folds and mounts on the wall, so why can’t your barbells hang from the wall, too? Propping your barbell up in a corner or laying it on the ground isn’t a good idea, as that method can damage the bar. Luckily, we’ve got your bar with the Hanging Single and Double Bar storage options. Quick, easy, and efficient, these keep your bars in a vertical position, which is a huge space saver compared to horizontal mounts.
No worries! We also offer Specialty Bar storage for your hex bars, safety bars, or standard OLY bars if you have the ceiling height. If you have multiple bars, or are looking for a way to add a bit of spice to your bar workouts, we also offer our exclusive Wall-Mounted Landmine Bar that acts as a storage place for your bar too. Imagine all your bars lined up and on display. Each with their own dedicated spot in your gym. A nice picture, eh?
Now you have solutions for your bar, but how about all those weights sitting on the ground?
Next, we have plate storage. While there are multiple options, including plate trees, A-frame racks, front loading racks (the list goes on and on)... all these options have the same flaw: They take up precious floor space!
You technically could just keep your plates on the floor. However, stubbing your toe or catching your heel on a plate can be painful. But you can easily avoid that scenario from ever occurring (and save on floor space, of course) by choosing to store your plates vertically!
PRx offers Three and Four peg solutions. Each peg can hold two 45-pound crumb plates. Additionally, you can opt to pair these weight pegs with a Wing Storage Extension. No more moving change plates out of the way(so handy). No more bending over to grab all your weights. Now you can have a dedicated spot for them that doesn’t equal the floor.
If you have a few kettlebells lying around, you guessed it, we have sleek little Kettlebell storage homes for them too!
Those are our top five (and maybe a few more) simple storage solutions that make your home gym run seamlessly.
