How to Move Exercise Equipment

Having a personal gym set up in your home can make it much easier to stick to your workout routine, especially if you lead a busy life. However, if you plan on moving, moving all of that exercise equipment can prove to be quite a challenge. The following are a few tips for moving your home gym:


  • Clean everything – Your first step should be to clean and sanitize all of your gym equipment to keep it in good condition. It will also prevent you from bringing in any germs or bacteria into your new home.
  • Pack smaller items – Take apart your hand weights and dumbbells. If they came in specially designed cases, use these. Otherwise, wrap each part individually in newspaper or bubble wrap to keep them protected. Don’t use cardboard boxes as they won’t likely hold up due to the weight. Use plastic bins instead. However, make sure you use smaller bins so that they won’t be as difficult to move. Otherwise, they may be too heavy to safely lift.
  • Disassemble large equipment – If you have a treadmill, elliptical or stationary bike, then you’ll want to do what you can to make it easy to take out of your home. For example, you should be able to remove the pedals and handlebars from your elliptical and stationary bike. This will make it easier to carry through hallways without damaging the walls. You should wrap them up in towels as well to prevent scratches and dents.

Keep in mind equipment usually requires more than one person to carry it out of the house, which is why you’ll want to leave the task to professional movers.

    Thanks for helping me understand that we should get some parts removed from the equipment to ensure that huge pieces of equipment can be moved easily and not damage the property. I guess an exercise room designer would be able to help me with this aspect to ensure that my house will not have any issues when I finally get the fitness room that I dream of. My new house has a bigger space, so I can actually turn one extra bedroom into that kind of space for my own benefit, since I have been gaining weight. https://roombldr.com

    I appreciate what you said about taking apart your treadmill and stationary bike. I think that we need some tow trucks to haul my exercise equipment. I’ll have to schedule my pick-up time. http://www.quality-towing.com/local-hauling

    That makes sense that you would want to take apart the equipment. My wife and I need to get a tower for our minivan. It broke down on the other side of the road. https://www.hawkinstowingservice.com/services/heavy-hauling-services/
