Did you watch any of the 2016 CrossFit Games? We did, and we’re exhausted just from watching! Your CrossFit training might not be as grueling as the Games, but you can make the most of your workout with the best equipment and a no-quitting attitude.
It’s easy to repurpose a space in your home for you CrossFit workout. Of course, nothing beats comrades in a class encouraging you and helping you excel, but to keep your workout going, bring it home. With some seriously thick, supportive EVA foam workout mats, you can do all those crazy things like million pound deadlifts right in the comfort of your own home. You can practice your burpee box jumps with a little less stress on your joints with some padding underneath to absorb shock. And since we know there’s a lot of sweating involved, you’ll be happy to know the mats are water resistant and can be cleaned quickly with a little mild detergent in water. They air dry and will be ready for your next round of handstand push-ups.
EVA mats can help lengthen the life of your CrossFit career. It’s the most intense workout regimen there is, and it takes a toll on your body in the long run. So how do you make it last as long as possible without injury? We’re tellin’ ya, you have to start from the bottom up. Be kind to your body while demanding more and more from it. When you’re doing floor work or high-impact practice, the EVA mats will absorb shock and prevent fatigue from setting in prematurely. If you’re doing deadlifts in your home space, you might want to consider our commercial grade rubber flooring. This heavy duty flooring is still easily installed yourself, but can handle the weight of machines and free weights without becoming damaged.
If you’ve committed to CrossFit, make your home workout space part of your self-care during your regimen and make sure you begin with the right flooring.
