Serious Lifters Only: A Home Gym That’s Up to Your Standards

As a powerlifting, strongman, body-building, or Olympic weightlifting enthusiast, you know how crucial your gym is to your success and enjoyment of the sport. But between rules, sharing equipment, cost, and the commute, going to the gym can feel like a hassle. In which case you may be interested in assembling a training facility in your own home or garage, however, not just any home gym will do, as the needs of a serious lifter require a special kind of gym. 

Heavy Duty at Home 

A clear issue with having an extreme weightlifting gym at home is the potential damage from heavy stationary equipment and free-weights falling on the ground. Luckily, there are easy-to-implement remedies that properly shield your floor from the sharp bottoms of heavy benches, racks and impact from weights, while simultaneously protecting the equipment itself from harsh surfaces like concrete basements and garages.  

In order to care for you, your home, and your equipment, it is essential that you place a protective layer between you and the surface underneath to act as a base for your gym. Purpose-built flooring designed for extreme fitness such as that made from rubber or PVC will keep the ground beneath you from scratching, chipping, or cracking under pressure.  

When searching for lifting-ready flooring, keep your eyes peeled for indicators such as “heavy-duty” or “equipment mat” that way you ensure it can handle a weight training regimen.  

Get Started on Your Pro-Level Home Gym 

For weight benches and machines, a Vélotas equipment mat will protect the floor for years and for full-size rack assemblies, our selection of rubber-top or PVC flooring can stand up to even the most intense world-class training. We Sell Mats believes all lifters have something to gain by taking their training home with them and we wish the best of luck to the U.S. Olympic Weightlifting Team in Tokyo. 

The Best Heavy Duty Flooring

Heavy duty flooring provides solid support along with just the right amount of give in places like gyms, garages, salons, factories, and retail stores. And to accommodate these widely diverse applications, We Sell Mats offers two unique flooring materials.

Commercial Rubber Floor Tiles

To provide a safe, solid, and comfortable workout, every gym or fitness club should be outfitted with our commercial rubber floor tiles. In addition to providing serious support under seriously heavy equipment, these floor tiles are specially designed to be non-slip, even when they’re wet. The last thing you need is an injury from an unsafe flooring surface.

Additionally, these tiles, like other We Sell Mats products, are designed to connect with interlocking tabs, so no glue or other adhesives are necessary. If the space you’re covering changes, simply remove the tiles and reassemble them in the new space. If you need to cover a large space, our commercial rubber flooring is available in rolls, too. And to tie it all together, this awesome flooring is even available in custom colors to match any design.

PVC Floor Tiles

Whether you’re constantly standing at work or working at home in your garage, you’re going to appreciate a little support— and nothing makes standing feel better than a cushioned floor surface. Our PVC floor tiles come with either smooth or coin top surfaces and in a variety of colors. Because they also come with our interlocking tab design, they can be laid with no adhesive, removed and re-laid a thousand times without compromising their integrity.

Even if you only have a few minutes a day to spare, you can still install this top-notch flooring system yourself, saving the cost of a professional installation. It’s really that easy. Order just a few extra and if one ever gets damaged, you can just pop it out and put the replacement in.
