3 Garage Storage Units for Sport Enthusiasts

Jun 22, 2022
You are what your family and friends call a sports enthusiast. You have probably tried every sport out there and have accumulated different sports gear in your garage. First, you became hooked on badminton. Following that shuttlecock at your side of the court has been your forte for six months. You of course bought a badminton racket and balls because you’ve been playing twice a week and it’s much more practical than renting out every time you go to the court. After half a year, you grew tired of it and wanted to level up a notch by playing tennis. It’s not that badminton isn’t challenging for you, it’s just that you wanted a heavier ball to hit with a heavier racquet. Then in one tennis match, your opponent invited you to a cycling studio session. He said that he was going to do it to lose weight and to make playing tennis a lot lighter and easier for him. You went with him and fell in love with indoor spinning. You even bought a bike yourself after a month so that you can have classes right at home. But then you became busy because of a promotion at work and the stationary bike has been left untouched in your garage. When January came, you wanted to join a triathlon after you had just broken up with your partner of four years. You would be undergoing rigorous training, strengthening your core and stamina and of course, training in three legs: cycling, running, and swimming. You upgraded your old bike to a road bike recommended for triathletes and bought dumbbells at home so you can do weight training. After your first triathlon that happened in June, you got so hooked on working out that you still regularly do. When it snows every winter, you are an avid skier, even sometimes going to Canada because you have family there who enjoys skiing. On one winter trip, your cousins invited you to try ice scuba diving. It was a very thrilling and an experience that you know you’d want to try again. You took pool sessions when you went back home and did an open water scuba dive session in Mexico to get licensed as a scuba diver. When you were in Mexico, a friend you met there invited you to go check out his resort in Hawaii. He said he’ll give you food and lodging and entertain you for your whole stay. It was an offer you couldn’t pass. In Hawaii, you surfed until you couldn’t feel your legs anymore. When you went back home, you already had a surfboard in tow. Needless to say, you love sports, movement, and any activity that brings out the adrenaline in you. But since you have been doing all sorts of sports and your space in the garage is limited, there is no more space to move around the garage. We’re here to help you fix your dilemma. To maximize the storing capacity of your garage, it helps to of course declutter and throw away or sell those items that no longer serve you. And then, you can install smart storage solutions such as overhead storage racks and wall shelves from FlexiMounts that will make use of the space in your ceiling and vacant walls to store your belongings in the garage. Here are some options including a bike rack:
