Flooring Your Home Gym

It’s still the first quarter of 2015 and hopefully everyone who has made the resolution to exercise more is still sticking to the plan. The most difficult part about fitting in a workout in your day is quite simply – finding the time. Do you want to get up extra early to go to the gym and then get ready for work? Or, do you want to work a full day and then hit the gym afterwards when all you REALLY want to do is relax.

One solution? A home gym – something that everyone believes will help them stick to a workout routine more. We couldn’t agree more with this plan but putting together a home gym requires some planning.

Here are some things to think about:

1. Are you going to dedicate an entire room to a home gym or just a section of a larger room such as the living room or basement?

2. Which pieces of gym equipment are essential to help you achieve your goals? Is it a treadmill, an elliptical machine or a weights set-up?

3. Working out is about keeping the mind focused. How will you build your gym environment? Will you put photos and posters up that inspire you?

4. Entertainment. We all love to work out to some great music or even to your favorite television programming. Figure out which pieces of technology you will incorporate in your gym room or area that will best be viewed or heard as you work out.

5. Lastly, what type of flooring will you put in your gym? We see the soft rubber matting in many gyms, but Swisstrax flooring can be a great solution for the home gym. The flooring is functional and will give the entire gym room or area a complete look. With several colors to choose from, you can design and show creativity in how you plan out your personal gym space.

Garage Flooring Ideas with Swisstrax

When deciding to give your garage a makeover, the choices can seem limitless. On top of that, if you choose to put modular flooring in your garage, then you have many different possibilities of colors and combinations. A myth for Swisstrax modular flooring can be that one color won’t give enough dimension to your floor. Quite the contrary actually if you use the Ribtrax open-profile tile – which we consider our most versatile.

Take a look at this example where there is primarily a single Pearl Silver Ribtrax tile throughout the garage. While there is a second tile color added into the design, it is merely for a border effect.

You can see how the Pearl Silver Ribtrax has a “cross-hatch” type of look that provides depth and dimension even though it is simply using a single tile color selection. Due to the cross directional pattern of the Ribtrax tile, you gain both design and function – making one color seem like two.

It can be tempting to use multiple colors in your floor, however, we have seen great success with single and two color design patterns.

We have a gallery full of great design examples – look through them to see what catches your eye. See Design Ideas.

A Better Alternative to Aircraft Hangar Flooring

Some people take pride in their aircraft hangars and call them their “glorified garages.” Hangars are a place to protect the aircraft and to minimize maintenance time so that they can maximize the availability to fly. The types of spaces you will find in a hangar are the hangar area, shops area, warehouse area, office area and the building utilities area.

The right type of flooring can enhance and populate the hangar. It is important to take the correct measurements for all spaces when considering any type of Swisstrax hangar flooring.

The best thing about an aircraft hangar floor is that it is relatively easy to maintain and clean. Swisstrax tiles are a great way to enhance your aircraft hangar flooring. The coating comes in many different shades and styles. It has a non-slip material with a reflective nature that helps maximize the hangar lighting.
