One of the most important aspects of any good gym is the type of flooring in the area. The floor of the exercise area is the support center that houses the various types of fitness equipment for your workouts. It is also the base that makes even the simplest of exercises a possibility. However, not all floors are created equal. The best type of exercise flooring is not made of wood or tile or concrete. Instead, rubber is the material that makes for the ideal type of exercise room flooring.
The Rubber Flooring Experts offer a wide selection of fitness and exercise flooring options made with recycled, reclaimed, and natural rubber products. Our fitness mats are ideal for any home or commercial fitness center projects. Whether you’re a homeowner with a knack for DIY projects or the owner of an independent gym looking for affordable floor protection, rubber exercise room flooring is your best bet. Rubber is naturally elastic and flexible, making it the ideal flooring material for high-impact areas like gyms and exercise rooms. And because our exercise flooring options are all made with naturally elastic rubber material, they will protect gym-goers from the accumulation of joint pain and stress. Continue Reading Below
Rubber exercise mats are available in a variety of forms and designs. One of the most popular types of exercise flooring in our lineup is the interlocking tile flooring. Our interlocking tiles are simple and straightforward products that are easy to install, no matter the size of your gym or fitness center. These DIY tiles offer anti-fatigue comfort as well as floor protection from heavy weight equipment. Most importantly, however, is their ease of use. Their interlocking nature will save you a lot of time during the installation process. Interlock exercise flooring products come with either connector pins or interconnecting border designs, both of which are meant to facilitate an easy installation process where the tiles lock into each other.
Rubber exercise room flooring is designed to be extremely durable. Due to the intense levels of physical activity that occurs in gyms, it is simply mandatory for our rubber exercise mats to be long lasting. Consider the various types of physically abrasive conditions that take place in a gym: high foot-traffic, presence of heavy equipment, shock and impact from heavy weights being dropped. These factors can be very damaging to surfaces made from wood or tile. When used as exercise flooring, rubber is durable enough to act as a shield between the floors and physical objects. Due to the material’s inherent elasticity, it can absorb and dissipate the shocks and vibrations that are emitted from functioning exercise equipment such as treadmills and free weights.
The elastic nature of rubber can also help keep you comfortable. Rubber exercise flooring is a softer and more forgiving surface to stand on. Concrete and hardwood flooring is cold, hard, and unforgiving. Rubber, on the other hand, is a gentler surface that can help relieve pressure in the feet and lower back. Rubber is a smart choice for exercise room flooring because it will keep you comfortable, thus allowing you to exercise for much longer periods of time.
Rubber exercise flooring can also help you stay balanced and keep your footing. Rubber is one of the few materials out there that possesses a high coefficient of friction. This increased level of friction can improve the overall level of grip and traction provided to the feet on top of the rubber exercise mats. For those workouts that place an emphasis on moving on your feet, this feature is very useful as it can prevent unwanted interruptions or injuries to your exercise routine.
Many of our mats are a “green” choice because they are made with 100% recycled products! Rubber tires, which are a large portion of all recycled raw materials, are designed for the abrasive conditions needed to keep a vehicle on the road for many miles. For this reason rubber exercise mats made from recycled tire crumb are tough enough to endure anything from outdoor use to high-impact sports. Our mats will prevent heavy equipment, as well as you, from slipping and sliding during use because rubber is naturally water resistant and anti-slip.
