People across the country want to exercise and stay healthy. Regular levels of exercise can help people lose excess weight, build muscle mass, improve respiration, and ultimately be happier in everyday life. Workout regimens like crossfit, aerobics, hot yoga, and high-intensity interval training are becoming more widespread standards of the gym world. However, it is very important to stay safe and comfortable while working out. The surfaces of a workout area matter a lot when it comes to getting the most out of an exercise session.
Unfortunately, most exercise areas come with existing surfaces that are not ideal for workout purposes. Tile, wood, and laminate surfaces can be uncomfortable and hard surfaces to exercise on. The Rubber Flooring Experts offer an easy solution to this problem by providing rubber workout mats and fitness flooring that is ideal for both commercial and home gyms. In stark contrast to wood or concrete floors, rubber workout flooring offers premium cushioning, shock absorption, and durability for high-impact training. Once educated about our products, you can make a decision as to which product and thickness might best serve your needs and budget.
Rubber is a supple elastic material and provides essential cushioning and comfort for high-impact activities like aerobic exercise. This is the primary reason why rubber is the ideal surfacing material to have in a fitness area. When you install rubber workout mats in a home or commercial gym, you are taking steps to actively protect yourself and others from injury. The soft elastic nature of rubber can help stop joint pain and stress before it starts, allowing you to exercise for much longer periods of time. You will find that rubber is a much more comfortable surface to be on when compared to hardwood. Continue Reading Below
Rubber workout mats not only protect people, they are also able to protect heavy fitness equipment and other types of floor surfaces. Exercise equipment such as rowers, steppers, and free-weight equipment are very expensive to acquire. While they may provide you with a great workout, the unfortunate fact of the matter is that they can all suffer damage over time when they are used on unforgiving hardwood or cement floors. Without any kind of protective rubber workout mats in place, machines can suffer structural damage to their bodies like dents and cracks. These can be very expensive to repair. Worse still, you might even have to replace the equipment altogether! Rubber workout flooring helps to prevent this by absorbing the vibrations emitted by these machines. Additionally, rubber fitness floors also cushion these machines, giving them a safe surface on which to operate. This helps to make them longer lasting and more effective.
Rubber is also very resilient. Fitness flooring made from recycled rubber tires provides excellent abrasion resistance. Just as exercise equipment is susceptible to damage, so too is the existing surfacing of a given area. This is especially true when machines like ellipticals or free-weights are present. Carpet, wood, or linoleum floors may crack under the weight of high-impact workouts and exercise equipment, but rubber fitness floors can protect and outlast these common surfaces.
Part of the secret behind the resilience of some of our rubber workout mats lies within the specific type of the rubber used in them. In many instances, our fitness flooring products are made out of recycled and reclaimed rubbers. These rubbers are post-consumer products that are made primarily from vehicle tires. Since vehicle tires are designed to be highly durable in various types of rough physical conditions, the workout flooring products made from them inherit that strength. Recycled and reclaimed rubber workout mats are able to withstand the high impacts of metal weights and repeat foot traffic.
The best part about reclaimed and recycled workout mats is that they are eco-conscious products. In their production process, discarded rubber products are taken out of the environment to be reused in useful ways such as fitness flooring. Consumers can enjoy these durable eco-friendly products at much more affordable rates than competing synthetic rubber products.
Our rubber fitness floors are available in varying thickness gauges in order to cover a wide range of possible fitness needs. They also come in very easy to install forms such as interlocking tiles. Rubber workout mats can help you get the most out of your exercise routine. High quality rubber fitness flooring will provide you with the necessary safety and comfort to enjoy your workouts while also minimizing the risk of damage happening to both the floors and the machines.
