Moving and packing gym equipment

Many people dislike the idea of going to a gym and would rather exercise in the comfort and privacy of their own home.  Exercising at home is more comfortable and brings with it a number of other advantages, such as saving money and saving the time it takes to travel to the gym.

When the time comes to move, however, the relocation of gym equipment can be a difficult task.  Gym equipment is both unwieldy and very heavy, but there are some tips that can be followed to help to move and pack your gym equipment properly.  It is of crucial importance to write down a list of all the different items.  There are numerous parts to most gym equipment and you need to know where they all are.  Labeling each part can be a good idea.

If you have any instruction manuals there may be additional information within them with regard to the dismantling and reassembling of your equipment.  It can be much more difficult to put equipment back together again after the move than it was to dismantle it in the first place.

Every machine should have its own box; the original box is preferable, if you still have it, as it was specifically created to hold the item.  If you no longer have the original boxes for your gym equipment then you should try to find new boxes that are of a similar size.  The boxes should be solid and undamaged, and labeled according to the contents.
