Exercise Your Right to Get Rid of Gym Equipment

Clearing the Clutter this Month

One of the most common resolutions people make this time of year is to improve their overall health. Home fitness has skyrocketed since the pandemic as the health-conscious invest in tools ranging from wearable trackers to gym-level equipment. However, these types of resolutions are also the quickest ones being abandoned. So, whether you’re looking to update your current at-home gym to revitalize your routine, or you’re thinking of simply getting rid of exercise equipment currently collecting dust, here are some tips on how.

Best Ways of Getting Rid of Exercise Equipment

Whether you’re updating or abandoning your at-home gym, clearing what’s there may be more complicated than you think. It’s easier to drop off free weights and resistance bands in the local donation box. But what about that old rowing machine or broken elliptical? Here are a few options:

  1. Sell. If your dusty machine still works, now’s a great time to sell it. Those eager to get their resolutions started will be looking for deals on new-to-them equipment. If you sell it online, you can stipulate the buyer has to come pick it up. This helps with larger items.
  2. Donate. Look into local community centers, senior care facilities, or high schools that may be in need of used gym equipment. Some of these organizations may also offer pick-up.
  3. Curb. If your community allows bulk trash pick-up or placing items at the curb, this is usually an easy way to get rid of something large. Plus, your neighbors will have the opportunity to turn your trash into their treasure. Don’t forget a FREE sign and mention if it works.
  4. Junk. If the equipment no longer works, or you can’t find anyone to take a ski machine from the 80s, it may be time to junk it. Call JDog Junk Removal & Hauling to come pick up items no one else will take. We’ll be happy to haul away anything from mats to machines.
