Foam Gym  Floor

Foam Gym Floor

One of the most important aspects of creating a home gym is making sure you have proper flooring. I see questions come up all the time on the forum asking about home gym flooring.

In my current home gym I “cheaped” out and used inexpensive interlocking foam, and it’s not worked out very well: the foam tiles are coming up, have badly warped and they mar easily. Here’s a picture I took this morning:

I did a lot of research on home gym flooring for my new home gym. I wanted something very tough, something that was not permanent (did not have to be glued) and something that would look good for years to come. I finally settled on Humane’s LokTuff interlocking rubber flooring. The floor is made from post-consumer recycled rubber and will stand up to many years of use and abuse. Each section measures 4 feet by 4 feet, is a half inch thick and weighs 45 pounds. It’s going to cost about $800.00 to do my gym. The flooring is offered in several colors. I’m going with the “glacier” color, which should complement my Titan’s grey upholstery nicely:

It’s going to be very nice to not have my floor coming up on me anymore! I’m going to order the floor today, but I won’t be installing it until we move into our new home (probably late December). I’ll post my thoughts and get some new pictures of my gym then!
