Flooring innovations: Totally floored

Kate Corney takes a look at the latest innovations in gym flooring. For more information, log on www.fitness-kit.net and type the company name under ‘keyword search’

By Kate Corney, The Leisure Media Company | Published in Health Club Management 2016 issue 11

Recycled Nike trainers used in super flooring

Physical Company has introduced the new RubberX flooring system featuring a dense rubber surface with an underlying 10mm SmashPad made from performance rubber and Nike Grind, a high-functioning raw material made from recycled athletic shoes and Nike’s manufacturing footwear by-product.

Its 2.5mm wear layer, 8mm base layer and 10mm SmashPad combine to drastically reduce the transmission of heavy impacts in both body and sound vibrations which are associated with strength training, heavy weight training, resistance training, repeated body weight exercises, explosive movements and flexibility.

RubberX comes in 20.5mm x 48 inch wide rolls and can be custom cut.

A choice of 10 vibrant colours is available to give your gym floor a contemporary look.

Pavigym’s fit-for-all aerobic flooring

Pavigym’s Motion flooring is specially designed for group-ex activities like Body Pump, cardio boxing and functional training. Designed to withstand all types of impact, the fit-for-all-purpose product has a twin-action function.

The top layer is a combination of virgin rubber with a specific formula which improves the friction control, meaning better impact resistance but also better performance for choreographed classes. It also helps to prevent joint damage due to slipping or blocking.

The bottom layer has Pavigym’s Air Flooring System Technology, where millions of micro bubbles of air absorb the impact and return the energy gradually, giving users much more comfort during the activity.

Pavigym Motion flooring is fully recyclable and available in seven colours. Motion does not need to be glued or fixed to the subfloor.

Marcos Requena, CEO of Pavigym, says: “Our commitment is to create quality solutions with the best technical performance and elegant designs for clubs, but also taking care of users’ well-being and providing them the best fitness experience.”

Jordan adds natural look

Jordan Fitness has introduced an artificial grass flooring to add a splash of colour, texture and character to clubs. The TurFlex flooring is fully customisable, allowing for a variety of markings and colours, including patterns and logos, to guarantee a unique, on-brand finish.

It can also be shaped to fit in awkward spaces or to create interesting shapes for specific training areas.

It was recently installed at the University of Leeds gym, The Edge. The facility had vibrant flooring installed to define specific areas and enhance the experience in the functional fitness area.

The facility had the area fitted with high-quality, hard wearing and versatile Functional Performance flooring.

As well as performance flooring, TurFlex provided a sled track for drag training and use with a prowler.
