When people think about installing a home gym, they usually think about weights, bikes, and other equipment.
It’s equally important to give serious thought to the kind of home gym flooring that’s best for your situation.
Depending on your home and preferred type of exercise, there are many different flooring options. Here are four options, with the benefits and drawbacks of each.
Carpet: It’s the most popular type of floor covering in Pakistan, and for many good reasons. It’s inexpensive, easy for the average person to maintain, and durable. Carpeting has a few drawbacks. It does not provide adequate shock or noise absorbency. Many people have home gyms in their basements, which can be susceptible to flooding that will ruin carpeting. It needs professional cleaning every few years and can hold moisture from spills, like water bottles.
Rubber flooring: This type of flooring is is extremely durable. Its antimicrobial qualities cause it to resist mold growth and it doesn’t absorb water. It’s excellent for weight lifting or cardio areas and is an excellent sound insulator.
Foam flooring: This type of flooring is inexpensive and offers a cushioned surface for people who do a great deal of floor work, like Pilates or yoga. Foam flooring isn’t recommended for use under heavy equipment like weights because they can become compressed over time and won’t spring back. They can also be cut easily with sharp objects, such as high heels.
Vinyl flooring: Vinyl tiles come in a wide variety of colors and are flexible. The main disadvantage to vinyl floors is that they’re not as shock absorbent as rubber or foam tiles. Once they’ve been installed, they feel like your kitchen floor, not a cushy gym floor.
Ultimately, the best home gym flooring is whatever works for your home, your budget, and your preferred type of exercise.
