Home gym.

Does anyone have a gym in their garage...or on a concrete floor elsewhere? What have you used to put on the floor? I`ve seen interlocking tiles....but not sure they`ll wear well. I`m contemplating some equestrian mats at the mo...

Something like these https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00E0M...&psc=1

Any other suggestions? Oh and the combined weight of the kit and weights is around 240kgs.

Geezer not included Laughing


 Steve.

I built a gym at the bottom of the garden and put standard wood effect laminated flooring down, works absolutely fine. I also got a couple of grey floor mats from Lidl for where I might be lying down or want to stop any slippage.

Artificial grass, but not one with a long pile as they wear badly. My nephews have laid a woven sort of artificial grass outside their pub/inn and at 5 years old it has hardly worn despite many hundreds of walkers on it every day. The artificial grass I have in my conservatory is medium pile from Carpet World and looks great and is warm and soft to walk on. 2018 Melting Silver Mini Countryman PHEV on order for April delivery, bye bye Land Rover after 21 years and 11 LR products..... all because you won’t give me reassurance that should my SDv6 crankshaft break because of a design fault, not MY fault, but the engine builders fault - it will be replaced for free.

If I put "grass" in my garage I reckon people would think I`ve lost the plot Laughing

Laminate is a good idea but ideally want something which will absorb any dropped weights...(I`ll have free weights too). Steve.

One of my elderly neighbours asked how often I had to cut the artificial grass not realising what it was ....... 2018 Melting Silver Mini Countryman PHEV on order for April delivery, bye bye Land Rover after 21 years and 11 LR products..... all because you won’t give me reassurance that should my SDv6 crankshaft break because of a design fault, not MY fault, but the engine builders fault - it will be replaced for free.

I use free weights too & I've not damaged the flooring as yet though the roof is a bit low and I've made a dent in that Laughing

Get a rubber mat and place it over the laminate where you are working out maybe?

Talking of height.....mine is close. Kit is 85 inches and my garage roof is 86....with a fluorescent light, right where it`s gonna sit. Probably need to move the light and may need to cut some plaster board out....just hope there`s not a joist in the way Laughing Steve.

I had one in my garage - if I remember it was a York & in its day very expensive. It took over 3 days to assemble & was placed on a mated floor. I used it less than a dozen times in a year Laughing Laughing

I am a gym member but I`ve always preferred training at home. I only rejoined the gym cos I wanted to get back into swimming but I`m not fussed about that now! Steve.
