With the recent addition of our Peloton, I needed to find a way to corral all of our spin accessories. You don’t need a dedicated room to create a spin station. Even the smallest spaces will work, if you find the right storage solutions. I had mats and stretching bands in one room of the house while cycling shoes, hand weights, and towels were somewhere else. I don’t know about you, but when I’m ready to get a good sweat in, I don’t want to spend the first 5 or 10 minutes finding what I need.
Until we have a committed room for exercise, we are currently using a guest bedroom. One of the best things about the Peloton is that it takes up very little room, and one of the reasons we purchased the bike was so we could just run upstairs and get a ride in without having to drive back and forth to a gym. Something I love about the gym, however, is the available amenities like towels and water and even a locker for your stuff. I wanted to recreate that same convenience at home.
We have a small corner that I knew I could work with, but I didn’t want our guests tripping over shoes or feeling like they were staying in a cluttered storage room. A quick trip to World Market and voilà – two easy pieces later and we had an instant spin station.
I found this rolling cart in the laundry supplies section. My advice is to look in other departments for items that can serve multiple purposes. I think this cart is probably intended for a child’s room but the small size was perfect for our little spin station corner. I needed at least two trays and I liked that there were label inserts and wheels. I also love the vintage feel with its chipped white paint, which goes perfectly with our decor.
I use the top tray for bottled water, towels, and a canister of sanitizing wipes. I actually used some leftover wrapping paper to recover the wipes and I like how they blend into the room now. The second tray keeps my husband’s cycling shoes and his heart monitor with the bottom tray holding the same for myself. Before using the cart I almost always forgot to grab a water and towel from downstairs and our shoes were just scattered on the floor.
This woven basket was the perfect choice for keeping other odds and ends organized. I keep a couple extra mats, an extra set of hand weights, and a stretching band inside.
Creating a spin station was the simplest change to make but it made such a difference for the room and how we approach our workouts. I love riding the Peloton, but this just makes it that much easier. Everything is where we need it and the room still works for guests. Easy peasy!
