Flooring named key consideration of home gyms

During the Covid-19 lockdowns, gyms were closed, and this prompted many households to convert a space in their homes into gyms. A key consideration of home gyms is the choice of flooring.

Though gyms are open again, many households prefer to work out at home, as this saves money and time spent travelling to the gym. According to gym expert James Anderson from the Physical Company, in the past, gym flooring was an afterthought, with people thinking that a few carpet tiles would be sufficient. Speaking to HCM, he said that:

“Nowadays, flooring is the foundation on which you build your fitness experiences – it underpins and plays an active role in the entire workout.”

For those wanting to create a home gym, the design process should begin with the floor. Choose non slip flooring for a Cheshire home gym – this is durable and long-lasting. In busy households, consider flooring with acoustic properties that dampens noise when using gym machines or jumping. For those that want to keep existing solid or engineered wood flooring, a specialist non-slip gym mat or interlocking exercise tiles can be used on top of the floor.

Non slip laminate flooring is not only functional for home gyms – it can also look pleasing, with a wide range of colour and pattern options to choose from.

A local floor retailer can be consulted to talk about the many options for flooring that are suitable for home exercise, weight lifting and for placement under gym equipment, such as treadmills and rowing machines.
