Rubber Flooring Sets the Safety Standard for Home Gyms
Rubber flooring offers unique benefits and great long-term value. In the past, rubber flooring was most often found in commercial environments. Today’s homeowners realize it’s a practical choice for residential applications as well, such as offices, wet bars, rec rooms, playrooms, utility, laundry rooms, mudrooms and personal gyms.
Rubber is a cost-effective, low maintenance floor option for your home fitness room. Whether your workouts include cardiovascular exercise, yoga, or weight lifting, rubber’s comfort, durability and sound control create the ideal exercise environment.
With a personal gym, you’re able to exercise in the comfort of your own home. Everything you need is within reach and you don’t have to drive anywhere.
Soft and supportive, rubber is a natural shock absorber. From dance and aerobics to kettle bells and free weights, this floor provides cushioning for joints, legs, feet and back. Set your treadmill and weight bench directly on it, and leave some open space for stretching and floor workouts.
Thick rubber tiles can create a sound barrier in between the floors of your home. Used alone or as an underlayment for other flooring materials, rubber greatly reduces impact sound. If you have a second-story gym, play area or laundry room, a rubber floor can make activities more pleasant for those on the floor below.
- Care & Maintenance
Perfect for heavy traffic areas, rubber is a dense material which can withstand plenty of wear over time.
If you stand for long periods of time, rubber’s cushioning can help reduce fatigue and foot injury.
A rubber floor can reduce injury from falls, making it a great choice for homes with kids or elderly occupants.
Care & Maintenance
A vacuum and damp mop are all you need to maintain a clean floor. Wipe up spills when they occur.
Since rubber is not affected by moisture, after mopping you can simply let your floor air dry.
Rubber is so extremely strong and naturally resilient that it’s hard to scuff, scrape or gouge it.
What type of rubber flooring is right for me?
Beyond the weight room, rubber floors are great for any area in your home that gets a lot of traffic. Able to last up to 20 years or longer, rubber is easy to take care of and incredibly versatile. Rubber flooring comes in tiles or sheets. Tiles are arranged together like a puzzle and can be cut to fit any size room, while rubber sheets work well in large spaces and have a seamless appearance.
Since liquid spills can’t hurt it, a rubber floor can accommodate any wet environment, like a bathroom, kitchen, mudroom or laundry room. As a natural shock absorber, it’s perfect for kids’ playrooms to help cushion little hands and knees. Not only for inside the house, rubber is great for garages too, especially since people don’t use them just for parking cars anymore.

We had the pleasure of having America’s Floor Source replace all of the hardwood flooring on our first floor back in December. The crew arrived promptly and worked into the evening to complete the job. Needless to say, I am very pleased with the way the floors turned out! They look beautiful!
