The Best Flooring For A Home Gym

Home gyms are becoming more and more common. Most people will convert a spare room or garage into a gym space, but give little consideration to the suitability of the space. If you’re creating a home gym, the flooring should be appropriate and safe for use. We’ve made a guide so you know what to think about and can decide on an appropriate solution for your needs.

The Safety Aspects

Gyms can be dangerous places when they aren’t equipped properly. If your home gym is going to have weights, it’s very important that they’re stable. As well as that, the floor needs to be able to take any impact that the weights might have. Those who dance or perform dynamic exercise like jumping rope would benefit from a floor with some bounce. A solid floor with no flex means that you’re putting more stress and shock on your bones and joints.

Rubber Flooring

Many gyms favour rubber flooring. This is because it’s flexible, low maintenance and easy to install. For small home gyms with a small selection of equipment, rubber puzzle mats are ideal. You can install them yourself and they’re great for small spaces which need a little extra help with impact.

However, larger gyms or gyms with more specialised equipment may be better served by a full, professional rubber floor installation. It’s a good idea to consult with an expert in gymnasium flooring, as they can recommend the correct thickness for your needs. Once installed, your home gym will look smart and professional, as well as improve your safety.

Vinyl Flooring

If you want something a little more aesthetically pleasing, vinyl flooring may be for you. There’s more colours available in vinyl than there is in rubber, and it still offers resistance from impact. Vinyl isn’t quite as effective as rubber at absorbing shock, and it could become damaged if something sharp gets dropped on it. We would recommend vinyl flooring to those who will use their home gym for cardio machines and gentle aerobic movements.
