Why use Gym Flooring in your home?
In recent years, we’ve all spent more time making our homes into multi-functional spaces designed to fit our needs in particular ways. It’s nice not to have to leave home to workout or for a blissful yoga session. Also, having a dedicated space for working out in your home helps you stay motivated because of the ease of access. You might be more likely to stick to your workout routine if you have a home gym.
It’s very common to have your gym equipment in a garage or basement. But why not transform your space into a gym?! You could be weighing the pros and cons of leaving the cement floor or setting up a workout space in a spare bedroom and considering whether to leave it carpeted.
What’s important to realize is that home gym flooring needs to meet certain criteria. Everything from your comfort and safety to the longevity of your equipment will be impacted by the flooring you choose. The ideal gym flooring is rubber. This type of flooring meets the logistical needs that are important in a gym and looks great.
How to Choose Gym Flooring
Consider these when you're choosing gym flooring
Safety: Safety is a priority for your workout area. You want to replicate the design features of a professional gym as much as possible, especially in terms of safety. Your flooring should provide an even surface to reduce the risk of trips and falls. When you have equipment, like treadmills or weight racks, you want to choose flooring with some grip, so it’s not sliding around.
Durability: Your home gym will see some of the most overall wear and tear of any space in your home. There’s likely to be a high amount of foot traffic, plus you’ll be using bulky weights and other equipment, so you don’t want to worry about damaging the flooring. If you choose something that’s not durable enough, you risk having to replace it in the short term. It’s better to choose the best flooring upfront and have the peace of mind of knowing it will give you years of use.
Maintenance: Your gym flooring needs to be low-maintenance and easy to clean. You don’t want a material where germs, bacteria, and mold can thrive, especially when exposed to moisture. Ideally, the flooring surface will easily wipe clean.
Shock absorption: A consideration with your home gym flooring is how well it’ll absorb shock from dropped equipment. The health of your joints and back also depends on the right flooring choice. Cement can be too hard and carpet is too unstable.
Installation: Depending on your timeline, you want to consider how long your flooring will take to install and whether it’s something you’ll have done professionally.
