Commercial gym flooring comes in all shapes and sizes, and some surfaces definitely perform better than others. Choosing the right flooring for a gym is a matter of use case and safety, because you want to find the balance between protecting the subfloor and delivering a good experience for members.

There are few tips to help you choose the right flooring for your commercial gym. We also offer free advice, so feel free to reach out.


There’s so much your gym floor has to cope with, including dropped weights, benches being moved, have equipment, sweat and spillages, vibration and impacts.

The right commercial gym flooring depends on the intended use case, however, since people tend to forget the rules when working out and misuse surfaces, it’s important to choose gym flooring that is extremely resilient.

Type of Workout

Most gyms support a wide range of workouts, including free weights, powerlifting, machine work, HIIT, pilates and yoga.

It’s important to consider the different zones you have in your gym and cater for the different workouts people do. This means thicker surfaces in free weight areas and thinner surfaces for yoga areas and indoor tracks.

Flooring Material

While hardwood is common in gymnasiums, commercial gyms don’t widely use it because the hard surface is only suitable for light work. Rubber flooring is the standard for commercial gyms, and you can get rubber flooring in various thicknesses and elasticities.

High density (stiff) rubber surfaces are polyurethane or vinyl and are best for areas with cable machines and treadmills. Lower density rubbers are best for free weight areas because they provide greater impact protection and absorb vibration. You wouldn’t want to use a hard surface in free weight and power lifting zones.

Maximising Performance With Underlay

It’s important to remember that a surface topper like rubber matting or tiles will only protect the subfloor so much. Underlay is a middle layer that allows the topper to compress into a softer surface than concrete or plywood.

Underlay maximises performance and especially in free weight zones. The underlay is normally softer than the topper, so dropped weights press into the top surface. This helps to stop weights from bouncing around.

Underlay is not always necessary, but it is recommended and in our experience flooring systems with underlay outlast those without it. TVS Gym Flooring can demonstrate a wealth of experience and has built a solid reputation, providing solutions to some of the UK’s leading health club operators.

Can Commercial Gym Flooring Be Customized With Logos or Designs?

Yes, many commercial gym flooring options offer customization features that allow for the inclusion of logos or designs. This customization not only provides a unique and branded appearance but also allows businesses to enhance their identity within the gym space. Here’s how customization for commercial gym flooring typically works:

  1. Printing Technology:

    Advanced printing technologies are often used to incorporate logos or designs into commercial gym flooring. This may involve techniques such as digital printing or inlay methods, where the logo is embedded directly into the flooring material.

  2. Color Options:

    Manufacturers often provide a variety of color options, allowing businesses to choose colors that match their branding or overall aesthetic preferences. This color flexibility contributes to the overall customization of the flooring.

  3. Logos and Branding:

    Logos, brand names, or specific designs can be seamlessly integrated into the gym flooring. This is particularly beneficial for commercial gyms, fitness studios, or sports facilities looking to create a professional and branded environment.

  4. Interlocking Tile Systems:

    Some commercial gym flooring options come in interlocking tile systems, and each tile can be customized with specific colors or designs. This modular approach allows for flexibility in creating a visually cohesive and customized flooring surface.

  5. Inlay and Cut-Outs:

    Inlay techniques may be used to cut intricate designs or patterns directly into the flooring material. This method is ideal for creating detailed logos or specific visual elements within the gym flooring.

  6. Branding Flexibility:

    Whether it’s displaying a gym’s logo, featuring a sports team emblem, or incorporating motivational graphics, customization offers the flexibility to tailor the gym flooring to the specific branding and aesthetic preferences of the commercial space.

When considering customized commercial gym flooring, it’s essential to collaborate with the manufacturer or supplier to understand the available options, the level of detail achievable, and any additional costs associated with customization. This ensures that the final result aligns with the branding and design goals of the commercial gym.

Can Commercial Gym Flooring Be Used in Other Commercial Spaces Like Yoga Studios?

Yes, gym flooring can often be suitable for other commercial spaces, including yoga studios. The key lies in choosing the right type of flooring that meets the specific needs and activities of the space. Here are some considerations:

  1. Material:

    Gym flooring is commonly made from materials like rubber, foam, or vinyl. These materials provide durability, comfort, and ease of maintenance, making them suitable for various commercial applications.

  2. Thickness:

    The thickness of gym flooring can vary, and for yoga studios or other fitness spaces where impact absorption is crucial, a slightly softer and thicker flooring option might be preferred.

  3. Shock Absorption:

    Gym flooring is designed to absorb impact, which is beneficial for activities that involve movement and exercises. This can be advantageous in yoga studios to provide a comfortable and supportive surface for practitioners.

  4. Ease of Cleaning:

    Gym flooring is often designed for easy cleaning, which is beneficial in commercial spaces where cleanliness is essential. This feature is particularly important for studios where yoga mats are commonly used.

  5. Customization:

    Some gym flooring options offer customization features, allowing studios to incorporate specific colors, logos, or designs that align with the branding and aesthetics of the space.

  6. Interlocking Tiles:

    Gym flooring with interlocking tile systems can be convenient for quick installation and customization. It also allows for easy removal or replacement of specific sections if needed.

  7. Versatility:

    Gym flooring is versatile and can accommodate various activities, making it suitable for multipurpose commercial spaces. Whether it’s yoga, Pilates, or other fitness classes, the flooring can provide a supportive surface.

It’s important to consult with the flooring manufacturer or supplier to ensure that the specific gym flooring option chosen is appropriate for the intended use in a yoga studio or any other commercial space.

Considering factors such as thickness, material composition, and design features will help tailor the flooring to the unique requirements of the studio while providing a comfortable and functional surface for practitioners.

Commercial Gym Flooring Versus Home Gym Flooring

Commercial gyms are designed to withstand heavy use and abuse from people of all shapes and sizes. This means they need a more substantial product than what would be used in your home gym. Home gyms are typically smaller spaces with less traffic, so it doesn’t make sense to invest in such an expensive product when there are other options available.
