Weight training is a very important part of a good workout regimen. Fitness buffs have come to see training with dumbbells and barbells as one of the keys to healthy exercise, muscle gain, and weight loss. Every commercial gym across the country has its own dedicated weight room where people can build their strength and muscle mass. However, you should be aware that weight rooms can be hazardous areas as well.
The Rubber Flooring Experts recommend rubber weight room flooring as the key to protecting yourself, your customers, your gym equipment, and your floors from falling weights and the wear and tear of prolonged usage. A rubber surface makes for a more comfortable and forgiving surface to stand on while lifting. Weight mats made from rubber can also act as a protective shield for the existing floors of an area. Rubber weight room flooring is an easy to install and cost-effective way of protecting you, your exercise weights, and the existing floor area itself from costly and dangerous damages.
As the Crossfit obsession grips America’s gyms, heavy fitness gear is now an integral part of any workout. Anyone who has seen or engaged in a Crossfit workout knows just how high impact and physically demanding it can be. Rubber weight room flooring offers a soft and forgiving surface on which heavy barbells can fall without damaging floors or suffering harm themselves. Rubber weight training mats possess a natural elasticity that provides a better degree of padding that cushions equipment and protects it from the floors. For example, if a 50lbs barbell is dropped onto a concrete or tiled surface, there is a very real risk of that surface suffering from serious structural damage in the form of cracking.

If rubber weight mats are in place over the existing floors of the area, the risk of damage is greatly reduced! The rubber material in weight room flooring is durable and elastic enough to absorb the harsh physical impact of the barbell, preventing that force from causing immediate harm to the floors.
Some types of floor damage are not immediate. Surfaces can slowly suffer and degrade over time, especially in areas that see high volumes of activity. Rubber weight mats protect delicate gym floors by stopping wear and tear before it starts. Cover existing flooring with rubber weight training mats and enjoy floor protection that is water resistant, easy to clean, and long lasting.
While it is no secret that people eventually get tired from exercising, a certain level of fatigue and discomfort can be prevented. Since rubber is an elastic and flexible material, rubber weight room flooring helps to protect bodybuilders and weightlifters from injury. This supple rubber surface conforms to your weight and cushions your body as you lift. It can help to relieve built-up pressure and tension in the joints of your feet, ankles, and the lower back area. This feature is very useful as it allows you to work out for longer periods of time while staying comfortable. Whether you are training for the Olympics or toning up for the summer, rubber weight mats support your legs, feet, back, and joints while you exercise.
Our weight room flooring products come in different forms. We offer weight training mats in the forms of rolls, single mats, and interlocking tiles. Each type of flooring is meant to be very easy to install. This is especially true of the interlocking tiles. These tiles are designed to lock into each other, either by the nature of their border designs or through the use of connecting pins. Our weight room flooring tiles are very popular for gym applications, especially for the Crossfit regimen that is taking America by storm right now.
The rubber material that we use in our weight mats is very durable. A lot of our weight training mats are made using recycled tire crumb rubber. This is a type of rubber that is harvested from other existing rubber products, mostly vehicle tires. Due to this, it is a very physically durable rubber that can operate in both indoor and outdoor harsh conditions. Products using recycled rubber are better able to resist the damaging effects of excess moisture and UV rays. As an added benefit for the “Green” eco-conscious consumer, the recycled rubber in our weight room flooring is an eco-friendly material that helps to reduce non-biodegradable waste in the environment.
Prevent long-term injury and enjoy durable floor protection at the same time!
