Different Rubber Flooring Materials for Your Home Gym

If you’re among those who complain about not finding a gym nearby or not being able to afford the membership fees… why not set up a home gym?

If you have some equipment and the space to accommodate it, there should be no reason why you can’t work out in the comfort of your own home. Before you start to plan anything else, let’s talk about one of the most important aspects of your fitness facilities – the flooring.

What is the best flooring material for a home gym?

There may be many different flooring options to choose from but rubber is by far one of the best. Rubber is widely used in different sports centres such as gyms, oval fields, courts, etc. Here are some advantages of using rubber flooring:

  • It reduces the impact of jumping exercises and reduces the likelihood  of knee and ankle injuries
  • Preventing accidental slips,  it will also protect the floor from heavy equipment
  • Rubber gym mats require less maintenance and portray a professional image

Choosing the right rubber mats for home gyms

There are several factors that should be considered before you decide which rubber gym mats to use. The following information will help you to select the best option:

Horse Stall Rubber Mat

Even though these materials are specialised for horse stalls and stables, this rubber mat is a good choice for the gym. Horse stall rubber matting is available in big, heavy and dense sheets. Its edges do not curl and lift which makes it ideal for a more agile workout, such as Crossfit.

EVA Linkable Tiles

Ethyl Vinyl Acetate or EVA tiles are waterproof and flexible materials that have high crack resistance. Complete with an inter-lockable design that is best suited for different workout activities, EVA tiles can also be used for children’s playrooms.

Rolled Rubber

Rolled rubber sheets can be used to cover the whole area of your home gym and are ideal for larger areas. You can also use smaller cuts that you can easily move around to suit your purpose (good for exercises that require kneeling, sitting and lying down).  Available at reasonable prices, rolled rubber flooring is available in a variety of thicknesses.

Rubber flooring is a good and reliable option not only for fitness centres but also for home or personal gyms. If you are planning to start working out at home, remember to look at these flooring options to find the perfect rubber matting to suit your purpose.
