Lately, it’s become common knowledge that we should all get as active as we can, be it daily, weekly, or monthly, not to just burn some calories, but get the optimal well-being too. While there are many gym junkies among us, there are also those of us who simply find it difficult to talk themselves into ditching the sedentary lifestyle, and make way for exercise every few days or so.
Luckily, there is a way to convince even the biggest of couch potatoes to get a bit of exercise with the opportunity to bring the gym home. That way there wouldn’t be the need to pay for monthly or yearly memberships, or run out of time trying to get to the gym in the first place.
Sure, you may have already started doing the mat as to how much you’d have to invest in machines, or gear altogether, but remember it’s the kind of investment that pays off, and no matter the workouts you’ve found most suitable for you, there’s always the need for the adequate exercise gym flooring.
This is important because flooring gets most of the pressure, can easily get damaged from heavy equipment and exercise routines, and at the same time can cause injuries, so it’s a necessity. Here are some of the popular options that you can find when looking for suitable exercise gym flooring.
Jigsaw/Rubber Flooring Tiles
When making this purchase, the first thing you have to consider is how much of floor covering you need, based on the size and amount of equipment, as well as on the exercises you do.
Then again, there’s also the consideration of whether you’d get to change your workout routine and add some more exercises. If you can’t tell with certainty, then you’d do well with jigsaw flooring because it provides easy adapting to the needed size, and easy installation at the same time thanks to the snapping of the tiles.
While it’s designed to be shock absorbing, it’s also slip resistant due to being waterproof, and it doesn’t take up much space when you want to remove it and store it. There are also jigsaw floor tiles that are colourful, which would be just what kids need, so it’s possible to create the ideal space for a family workout too.
As for rubber tiles, they are just as easy to install, and don’t require any glue. With their thickness, they can be used for just about any gym requirements, including be used as lifting platform all because of the high density which can be seen from the weight of each tile, 15kg. Furthermore, there are those made of recycled motorcycle tyres, giving you the peace of mind if you want no-toxic chemical gym flooring.
You don’t have to be practising yoga or pilates to own one of these mats. Mats are ideal for hard surfaces too, providing comfort with at least 6mm of thickness, available in a variety of sizes (yes, even big ones enough to fit equipment pieces), as well as colours, and materials. Besides, they make for quick placement or storage, perfect for rooms that aren’t meant to be full-time gyms. Choose your flooring, and exercise!
