Regular exercise has huge benefits for our health, mind, and body, so it’s no surprise that around 45 million adults in the United States are members of a gym.
Gym owners know that in order to attract customers to their facility, they need to provide a welcoming and sanitary environment in which to work out. Nothing will lose members more quickly than an unhygienic gym filled with bad odors.
Gyms are naturally sweaty places, but that doesn’t mean you can’t provide a bright, clean, and fresh-smelling workout facility. You just need to start from the floor up!
Antimicrobial flooring keeps odors at bay
Everlast® Epoxy uses an integral EPA-registered antimicrobial component that protects your gym flooring from odor-causing microorganisms. This helps to ensure that workout rooms have no objectionable odors and provide a welcoming atmosphere to potential new members.
The antimicrobial component is fully dispersed throughout all layers of the resin and is also designed to inhibit the growth of bacteria, yeast, fungi, actinomycetes, and mildew so that you can enjoy a healthier flooring system.
A seamless and sanitary flooring solution
Whether you opt for tiles, carpets, or rubberized flooring for your gym, there will always be joins and seams in which sweat, dead skin cells, and other debris can accumulate and become trapped, eventually causing unpleasant aromas.
Everlast® Epoxy is a seamless system that is poured and troweled over existing substrate, ensuring there are no gaps or cracks that can harbor germs or odors.
Easy to maintain and keep clean
Our resin floors are nonporous, which means that if sports drinks are spilt they won’t penetrate the floors and cause damage—they can simply be cleaned away.
Gym owners love how easy it is to clean our floors with just detergent and water. Grime can be pushed down the drain with a squeegee, leaving a clean and fresh-smelling floor.
Your staff will thank you at the end of a busy shift, as there is no need for polishing or buffing the floors to keep them clean and ready for another busy day.
Other great reasons to install epoxy flooring in your gym
There are many other ways in which an epoxy floor can improve your facility, they provide additional safety benefits to gym members and are versatile enough to be used in all areas of the building—from the lobby to the locker rooms.
Impact-resistant flooring for gyms
Gym floors need to withstand impact from dropped dumbbells and heavy weights. Most flooring options will not stand up to the rigors of a busy gym and will quickly show signs of wear and tear.
Epoxy flooring is different because it is incredibly tough to damage, scratch, or crack, which will keep your gym floor looking great for years to come.
A slip-resistant flooring system
Safety is a key priority for gym owners, especially in situations where members may be lifting heavy weights or taking part in a high-impact aerobic class where a fall might prove hazardous.
The textured finish of epoxy flooring will safeguard against slips and trips so that your members can work out in safety—all while helping you avoid a potentially costly lawsuit!
Hey, good looking!
To attract new members—and retain current ones—your gym needs to provide a welcoming and attractive environment in which to stay fit and healthy.
Durable epoxy flooring is long lasting and can cope with heavy foot traffic without leaving unsightly wear patterns. There is also a vast choice of colors—from a brilliant white to darker hues—so there is sure to be a shade that matches the vibe of your gym.
