Building a Home Gym? Use Interlocking Rubber Flooring Tile

Published: Santa Ana, Calif., September 25, 2012

“Reality” television often blurs the line between real life and scripted entertainment. On VH1’s “Money Hungry” contestants are asked to put their money where their stomach is. The participants in the unique weight loss competition must first pony up $10,000 of their own cold hard cash. This incredible ‘twist’ gives this show an additional element of reality by forcing contestants to risk their life savings.

VH1 and Rubber-Cal teamed up to facilitate a fitness room that was both safe and durable enough to support the participants on their road to better health and wealth. By utilizing Rubber-Cal’s Puzzle-Lock rubber flooring tiles, the contestants were given optimum opportunity to succeed. Puzzle-Lock is an all-purpose rubber flooring solution. The non-slip mat is designed to fit together like a puzzle, making it easy to use and easy to install.

Recycled rubber mats provide enough of a cushion to support stressed joints and reduce workout related injuries and fatigue. Contestants were able to exercise longer and harder because the sturdy non-slip mat reduced the amount of shock and bone jarring impacts.

In this winner-take-all competition, the team that loses the most weight will take home the $100,000 grand prize. But, to do so the contestants have to be willing to work hard and go the extra mile. The show is about ones willingness to sacrifice whatever it takes to better themselves and those around you.

By risking their futures wagering such a large sum of money, the contestants face the harsh reality of walking away empty-handed. This additional level of motivation is unparalleled in the realm of reality TV or game show television. With each pound shed, the participants gain a new level of self-confidence and happiness. To have a chance to change their entire lives and earn a few extra dollars in the process, they have to be willing to spend countless hours in the gym. The gym’s rubber flooring tiles had to be tough enough to withstand the rigors of a very motivated group of individuals.

The success of the show and its participants rested squarely on the rubber flooring and Rubber-Cal’s Puzzle-Lock recycled rubber mats. With Rubber-Cal’s help the winning team accomplished their goal of getting healthier with an incredible 20% loss of their body weight and took home the $100,000 cash prize.
