Medball Storage

How do you guys store yours? (gym owners that is)

As our collection of Dynamax Medballs grows, they are starting to take up some serious real estate. Pictures of some home build med ball storage would be great!

Re: Medball Storage

I've seen alot of gyms use PVC-built shelving.

WFS: Like this

Also makes labeling the shelves easy so everything goes back in the right spot.

Re: Medball Storage

We use a laundry cart for ours. It can hold 16-20 of them. We just roll it out of our storage room when needed. We found it cheap on craigslist, then bought a new cover.

That's how I would do it. 1.5" PVC should be strong enough and you can even expand your rack as you need more medballs. Great idea.
