For most gym or weight rooms, rolled rubber flooring is sufficient to protect floors from the constant wear and tear of everyday use. Yet, for more intensive applications, stronger floor protection mats may be necessary to more effectively buffer floors from heavy impact. This is especially true in commercial gyms. Most of us are generally a kinder and less abusive species when we workout at home.
Bodybuilders and power lifters set themselves apart from the common crowd of casual gym goers by their range of exercises and the amount of weight used in such exercises. High-intensity weightlifters stack plates upon plates in exercises like dead-lifts and the clean and jerk. Amid labored grunts and gritted teeth, a lifter’s muscles aren’t the only things being punished by the heavy weights; unprotected floors suffer substantial damage from falling weights.
In such situations, it is ideal to set up protective flooring in areas abused by the damaging impact of heavy weights. Especially for concrete, laminate wood and low-pile carpet floors, floor protection mats are an effective and simple way to prevent damage to gym and weight room floors. Here are three attributes of rubber mats that make it tough for impacts to damage your floor:
Floor protection mats are tough and resilient, sure to protect your floors and even your equipment from damage. For any gym owner or home weightlifter, the rubber mats are a great way to introduce protective flooring to your workout area without breaking the bank. The mats do not require messy adhesives to install, and they are simple to maintain, keeping money in your pocket for maybe a new jar of whey protein!
