Are you tired of working out with others, of paying gym fees only to have no equipment available when you need it, or you are just tired of the commute to and from the gym? What if your garage could be turned into a home gym? There’s only one problem: your garage is packed full of stuff. So what’s the solution?

As a 24-hour storage facility, offering climate controlled storage units, you can store your garage stuff in one of our storage spaces so you can have your home gym. Continue reading below to find out how easy it is to turn your garage into a home gym, and then contact us today!


  1. Clean out your garage. Most of us use our garage for one of two things or both: to park our car(s) or for storage. If you want a home gym in your garage, you will have to park your car in the driveway or on the street and/or clean out your belongings. Consider what’s in your garage space: if it’s stuff you rarely use, such as an old stroller, Christmas decorations, books you’ve read but you want to keep, old clothes, shovels, rakes, and more, then you can most definitely move that to your local storage facility, such as Mattapoisett Self Storage. You can rent a storage unit that is the right size for your stuff. This allows you to keep the stuff you need and have a home gym. If the items in your garage are used more often than not, consider building extra shelving above your head. If you have stuff with years of dust on them, it’s probably time to hold a garage sale to not only make some money off of those items, but also to just get rid of the items.
  2. Decide on what gym equipment you want. Many people invest in home gym equipment and never use it. Mattapoisett Self Storage recommends before you drop hundreds of dollars on your home gym to determine how often you will realistically be using it and what type of exercises you want to do. If you want to get strong, you’ll need a barbell and weight plates. If you are looking to do primarily HIIT workouts (high-intensity interval training), you’ll need cardio equipment, such as a treadmill and dumbbells. It can be helpful to think about what you do at your local gym and replicate that equipment.
  3. Use your home gym! Once all of your equipment arrives, you’re ready to begin. Many exercise routines are found online you can do, or one of the beautiful things about owning your own home gym is doing what you want to do, which can change day by day. You can cater to what makes your heart sing, which is only more motivation to use your new home gym.
