Today we go over the best options that you have to choose from for your garage gym floor! If you’re like most people, you probably don’t think too much about your garage flooring. After all, it’s just a place to store your car and maybe do a little bit of work on the side.
A good garage gym flooring option can make all the difference in the world when it comes to working out at home. In this blog post, we will discuss some of the best options for you.
Option 1: Rubber Flooring AKA Stall Mats
The most popular options for garage or home gym flooring is rubber flooring. Not only does it provide a soft surface that is great for protecting your joints, but it also absorbs shock and noise, making it perfect for working out in a busy environment. Rubber flooring is also easy to clean and maintain, and it comes in a variety of colors and textures to suit your needs.
I recommend checking out your local Tractor Supply for their stall mats. I love that Tractor Supply offers a 5 year warranty on these mats. If you are environmentally conscious Garage or Home Gym lift, know that these are made from 100% recycled rubber.
Whether you’re a powerlifter, or a Crossfitter that does deadlifting, squatting, clean and jerks, or any general throwing down of your barbell these mats are sure to withstand it!
Option 2: Foam Interlocking Tiles
Foam tiles is a great option for those who are looking for a softer surface to workout on. It is comfortable, durable, and easy to install. Foam flooring also comes in a variety of colors and designs, so you can find the perfect option to match your garage décor.
Personally these were my first purchase when it came to deciding on how to cover my concrete floors in the garage gym. They also serve as a great option if you’re on a budget and would rather spend more money on equipment pieces.
Foams tiles due have some downfalls as they are not as durable as rubber, not as slip-resistant as rubber, and potentially can wear down quicker. However even with that I would still recommend these as a budget friendly option that still offers a softer flooring for not only your joints but also and equipment that you use that might come in contact with the ground. My recommendation to foam tiles would be these from Amazon.
Option 3: Epoxy floor coatings
If you’re looking for a high-quality garage gym flooring option where you want to still be able to drive your car on, then epoxy is the way to go. Not only is it durable and easy to maintain, but it also looks fantastic. Epoxy coatings comes in a variety of colors and can be customized to match your garage.
Now doing an epoxy floor coating is more time consuming than the previously mentioned options. Typically you will need to completely prep the garage floor by scrubbing, and cleaning any grime and grease from cars. This flooring choice does require the most work, but all your hard work will pay off when you stand back and admire your handwork.
All manufacturers of epoxy coatings have great guides, and tutorials on how to use their products. I would recommend this product for someone that is looking to have a garage that is half gym, and half functional garage where you can park a vehicle. Check this option out from Home Depot if you think this option is best for you.
Which garage gym flooring option is best for you? It really depends on your needs and budget. But no matter which option you choose, make sure to do your research and shop around to find the best deal. Happy working out!
