Gym Flooring Will Keep You Moving for Years to Come!
There are so many things to be gained from faithfully following an exercise regime. Paired with healthy eating, aerobic exercise pushes the human body into reaching, attaining, and then surpassing physical boundaries through moderate but challenging movements. The American College of Sports Medicine states that aerobic exercise is “any activity that uses large muscle groups, can be maintained continuously, and is rhythmic in nature.” Aerobics is a type of exercise that will get people up and moving, pumping up their heart-rate and making them breathe hard. Some exercises that fall into this category are jumping rope, step aerobics, yoga, and the always popular Zumba. But in order to continue treating your body like a temple, you can’t just focus on what you do with it and what you put into it. Environmental factors should also be taken into account. For example, how is that hard concrete, tile, or hardwood floor treating your jumping joints? Investing in special aerobic floors is a great way to protect your body from the strains of continuous and repetitive motion. Rubber gym flooring is shock-absorbing, and can withstand high-impact activity, while acting as a cushion between you and the more often than not unforgiving floor. And best of all, rubber crafted sport floor products and aerobic mats are going to keep you moving for years to come, both by protecting you as well as by being long lasting.
Here are our main 3 reasons for utilizing rubber aerobic floors in any workout area.
- Keeps you moving!
If not executed correctly, aerobic exercise can do a lot more harm than good. Injuries are common and often include painful shin splints, debilitating twisted ankles, and even stress fractures. Many of these injuries are in direct correlation to the hard surfaces upon which we exercise. Therefore when performing aerobic exercises it is necessary to have the appropriate kind of gym flooring. Shock absorbing aerobic floors help combat fatigue during workouts, are also critical to protecting your joints, and help lessen the stress on the knees and ankles. This is very important if high impact calisthenics are being performed. The lack of high impact-absorbing aerobic mats can show over time. And not only in the form of injuries! Who wants to work out when they’re in constant discomfort? Having a more forgiving sport floor surface that more readily accommodates your body will definitely make exercising more enjoyable.
2. Longevity that keeps up with you!
Durability is another important factor in choosing the right gym flooring for your needs. Training sometimes involves the use of fitness equipment, such as treadmills and exercise bikes. The type of work-out equipment, especially its weight and the amount of impact it will have on the floor should be taken into consideration. Made with recycled and reclaimed rubber materials (often from tires that were originally made to strand against the forces of nature), rubber aerobic floors and aerobic mats are durable enough to withstand the use of heavy exercise equipment and high-impact aerobics while also protecting your floors.
3. A do it yourself sport floor!
Finally, rubber gym flooring is an absolute breeze to install making it possible to turn nearly any given space into a workout area. Rubber flooring can come in rolled rubber aerobic mats, which are offered in custom lengths, greatly reducing the amount of cutting that has to be done on site. Additionally, the custom cutting of the mats reduces costs, since you’re only paying for what you need. And then there’s also the versatility of indoor/outdoor use offered by interlocking rubber mats. Interlocking rubber tiles are ideal because they are lightweight, portable, water-resistant (I like to call it sweat-resistant!) and shock absorbent. But at its core this is a project that any DIY handyman or woman, regardless of experience, can tackle.
In our already busy and chaotic world we hardly need any more excuses to keep us from taking care of our bodies. Preventable injuries should never be one of those reasons. If you’ve mustered up the willpower to start working out, or if you’re already passionate about keeping fit, staying strong, and being healthy, rubber sport floor products will help you on your journey. Picking what sort of gym flooring best suits your needs requires careful consideration. Any exercise that will put you through strenuous and repetitive activity would be best done upon rubber aerobic floors and aerobic mats. Your body is your temple, and while you take care of feeding it right and giving it exercise don’t forget to also protect it from wear and tear.
