Columbus Man Protects Home Gym Floor With UltraTile Rubber Tiles

Durable Rubber Weight Room Floor Tiles Protect Concrete From Accidents

By Brett Hart

When it comes to protecting his basement floor, Fred of Columbus, Ohio, isn’t about to take any chances.

fred-gym-1426After purchasing an extensive set of weightlifting equipment, previously used for bodybuilding, from neighbors, this 65-year-old recreational weightlifter has friends over to lift with him weekly and wanted to be sure his 8-inch thick solid concrete basement floor was protected against any accidents.

”Usually, I over engineer things,” he said. ”I wanted something that was real heavyweight so that if there was an accident, the concrete wouldn’t get damaged.”

Having seen some heavy duty rubber flooring tiles in a weight room at a nearby apartment complex, Fred inquired about the tiles and was referred to Greatmats.com to take a look at its UltraTile Rubber Weight Floors.

The 1 inch thick, 2×2 foot tiles were just what he was looking for. The tiles were thick enough to make Fred comfortable that his floor would not be damaged by falling weights, and connect firmly together with pin connectors that ensure the 20×40 foot section of flooring will stay in place in his home gym.

fred-gym-1425Although the flooring is designed to handle the impact of fall weights, in the spirit of over engineering, Fred decided to put a double layer in his 10×12 foot powerlifting area.

The rubber tiles were also easy enough to install himself, and with 220 tiles at 16 pounds per tile, he said, ”It’s a workout putting them together. It took me about 24 hours over six days.”

”If you’re doing it yourself, it takes a while,” Fred said. ”I would pound for a little while and carry after I finished putting dowels in. That would give me a little rest in between.”

Home Weight Room Gym Greatmats UltraTile Weight Room Rubber TileA resourceful installer, Fred decided to forgo the 2-3 pound sledge hammer and 2×4 tapping block to put the connector pins in place and put on a pair of heavy steel toe work boots to kick set the dowels.

”There’s always one side (where) you have to get down and match the holes,” Fred said. ”I was kicking them together instead of pounding. It kind of jars your body a little bit, but it was easier for me than pounding with a 2 pound hammer. I’m not a youngster, but I still was able to do it. I figured I saved a couple thousand dollars installing myself. It just took me a little time.”

Weight Room Greatmats UltraTile Weight Room Rubber TileHe was also able to cut the tiles successfully to go around the four brace poles in his basement.

Now that the flooring is in place, Fred is happy with how it’s worked out for him.

”I use it once or twice a week,” he said. ”Whenever other guys come over to work out, it reminds me to get out of the office and get down there. … Everybody likes the floor. It’s a nice product. … We’ve only had one accident. The weights hit the floor and rolled off onto the concrete, and that seemed to make it so it didn’t hurt anything.”

Choosing the best home gym flooring

Because I work for a specialty flooring store, I am often asked which flooring is best for a home gym.  The answer depends on a few variables and I usually reply with a few questions of my own:

What will the home gym be used for primarily?  If you’re looking for a tough material to protect your concrete or hardwoods from being damaged by free weights or heavy exercise equipment, you may want to look at rubber.  Rubber is the traditional flooring for both home and commercial gyms and it is an economical solution for keeping your floors, as well as your equipment, protected.

However…

Rubber flooring is heavy.  By heavy, I mean REALLY heavy.  A square foot of 3/8″ rolled rubber weighs 2.3 lbs.  (8mm is slightly less)  That means to cover a 10×10 foot area, you’re dealing with a 230 lb roll of rubber.  “Well,” you say, “that’s not so bad.  A buddy and I could roll that baby out no problem.”  And maybe you’re right.  But here’s something else to consider:  the rolls show up at your front door on the back of a semi-truck.  If you get a liftgate included in your shipping costs (something to consider) they will lower the roll of rubber to the ground and drive away leaving you to wrestle it into your workout area.  If you don’t get a liftgate, you will have to pull that baby off the truck yourself and that’s a serious endeavor.

Another option is interlocking rubber tiles.  These come in various sizes (typically 2×2 foot or 3×3 foot) and can be installed without adhesive of any kind.  Depending on the type you buy, you can find them at a reasonable price, although generally more expensive than rolled, and they are much easier to handle.  Also, the fact that they require no glue makes it easy for you to bring them with you if you decide to move.

 However….

RUBBER IS NOT WATERPROOF.  Many people are under the impression that rubber is like plastic.  That it can be submerged indefinitely in a flooded basement and come out unscathed.  This is simply not the case.  The porous materials of most rubber flooring will absorb water and hold it.  Over time, this will break the rubber flooring down to such a degree that the floor is rendered all but useless.

If you are considering putting your home gym in a basement that gets mildly damp on occasion, this will probably not be an issue for you and rubber flooring may be your best bet.  If you’re considering putting your home gym in a wet basement that floods from time to time, you may be better served with a waterproof option  such as plastic, modular floor tiles that allow airflow beneath the tiles for a quicker dry.

Do you plan to do aerobic activities in your home gym area?  Zumba, P90x, or Insanity?  If so, you probably don’t want rubber.  Rubber is quite hard and provides little to no fatigue-relief.  If you’re looking for a flooring type to keep your teeth from chattering every time you jump up and down, you need something else.  I typically suggest foam.

Foam flooring is available in various densities and thicknesses.  The play mats that kids play cars on and the MMA mats that fighters throw one another around on are not the same.  Determining which type of foam product is best for your needs depends on what specifically you’ll be using it for.

Unlike rubber, foam is waterproof and can be submerged indefinitely without the foam taking in water and damaging the foam itself.  It provides great shock absorption, requires no glues for installation, and it’s lightweight.  It can be easily installed wall-to-wall because all you need to cut the interlocking tiles to fit is a straight edge and a utility knife.  It doesn’t get much easier than that.  However, under some equipment, foam will indent and stay indented for the life of the product.  If you can live with that, foam is generally your best bet.  It is inexpensive and, because it is so lightweight, is typically fairly cheap to ship.

Hopefully, this gives you some insight into what you’re looking for.  The easiest and fastest way to get your specific questions answered is to call one of our customer service reps and have a conversation.

Customer Review-Rolled Rubber

“I am extremely elated and I would most definitely buy from Greatmats again.”

-Don R.
Don chose 3/8” rubber rolls.  He used this rubber flooring to design a fitness center in his basement.  Don attended the National Academy of Sports Medicine to become a personal trainer and it has always been a dream of his to own a fitness center and train clients. 

We’ll let him tell his story:

“I wanted the flooring to be durable, flexible, comfortable, and compliment the red and black color scheme of the equipment…I researched some home gym flooring companies online and at brick and mortar…I decided to use Greatmats flooring rolls…the flooring is solid, sturdy, and does not shift when training.”

Rolled rubber is a great option for home gym flooring where weights and exercise equipment is going to be used on a regular basis.  Interlocking rubber tiles are more common for home applications because they’re easier to install and require no adhesives.  This makes the flooring easy to transport if you decide to change locations and want to bring your rubber flooring with you.  However, rolled rubber is less expensive and is often found in commercial applications.   Since Don is using his basement fitness center as a business, it makes sense that he would go this way with the rubber flooring.
Don goes on to say, “when friends, family members, and potential clients visit my fitness room, they say the flooring looks really nice.  One friend who I showed the pictures of the flooring to indicated that it looked professionally done.  The installation went perfectly as explained by Tina (one of our customer service reps).  Thanks, Tina, for your superb advice.  It took 3-4 hours because I wanted it done neatly…the most rewarding part of this project: I saved over $2500 by purchasing the flooring and doing it myself…the website elucidated and depicted the different styles of flooring, percentage of coloring and method of how to request the sample.  I thought it was convenient to get a written quote that included the shipping freight and the total cost…the main reason I purchased my material from Greatmats was because of the superlative customer service, knowledgeable customer service associate, quality products, competitive prices, and concise written quotes.  Moreover, without the rubber flooringmy training room would be incomplete.  I appreciate your company assisting me in achieving my long term goal.”
So, Don, would you recommend Greatmats to your friends?
“Yes, with a favorable endorsement!!!!1”

Thank you, Don.  We’re glad you’re happy with your rubber flooring.  We’re sure you’ll enjoy it for many years to come.
