Functional training can involve dynamic movements utilising multifunctional rigs, kettle-bells, slam balls, battle ropes, sleds and even tractor tyres. It’s important that gym flooring and floor finishes in these training zones provide adequate protection to the structural slab as well as sufficient grip and cushioning underfoot.
TVS products are made from high quality recycled rubber mixed with EPDM colour granules, bound together with a polyurethane elastomer. Products are comfortable to walk on and absorb impact and room noise.
Materials are available with Cfl-s1 fire certification (tested according to EN 13501-1) and benefit from a VOC emissions rating of A+.
TVS floor finishes are highly resistant to mechanical wear, easy to clean and water-repellent. Available in a wide range of colours TVS floor finishes provide an aesthetically pleasing and economical solution for a range of gym activities.
Functional fitness includes any exercises that support daily activities, including cardiovascular work and strength training. The idea is to increase a person’s functional fitness, so they are fitter in everyday life. In this way, functional fitness is regarded as one of the best workout types for people of all ages.
Some of the daily movements that functional fitness supports include squatting, reaching, pulling, and lifting. By working on these movements with weights, it is easier to do them in real life unweighted. This increases strength.
Another aspect of functional fitness is endurance. Although cardiovascular activities are considered separate, the intensity of and speed of reps in functional fitness means you tend to get a sweat on and build up endurance anyway.
Gyms that enable functional fitness will need to have a suitable floor. A suitable floor is one that is safe and properly cushioned. A floor that is too soft will be very difficult to stay balanced on and a floor that is too hard will cause significant stress to legs, which could lead to injuries and painful recoveries over the following days.
We are a leading supplier of functional fitness gym flooring. We have unique experience designing functional fitness zones in gyms, so we know what people like to use and what is best for athletes and hobby gym-goers alike.
We can design functional fitness flooring to any specification to suit a wide range of activities. Your floor could be made from one material to create continuity or it could have transition zones so there are separate areas for different types of workout. For example, we could create strength training and cable zones.
If you have free weight areas in your functional fitness zone or allow rubber barbells, it’s important that your floor is thick enough to absorb heavy impacts. It would be best to have a thicker rubber floor here rather than a harder one.
Depending on the activities that will be performed, we may recommend artificial turf, rubber tiles, stacked performance flooring or rubber matting. Safety with functional fitness flooring should take into account grip, shock absorption and resilience.
We can also install markings on your floor to help your gym users get the most from their workouts and designate the functional fitness zones in your gym. We recommend markings to enhance your facilities and enable interactive workouts.
