4 Reasons Why Your Gym Needs Synthetic Turf

Are you a gym owner or a trainer that is considering opening your own location? There are many factors you will have to consider when opening a gym, one of those factors being the materials that you will use inside your facility.

Let’s face it- there are thousands of gyms across the country with a new location opening in your hometown almost every month. Between crossfit, martial arts and weight lifting gyms, competition is fierce. If you are serious about standing out to your customers and offering a premium fitness solution, you need your atmosphere to reflect that fact as well. One of the ways you can do that is by installing customized synthetic turf inside your gym.

Synthetic turf is amazing for specialized gym environments because:

  • It is low impact
  • You can use equipment such as sleds
  • Turf is excellent for dropping weights onto
  • And, it reduces injuries

Would these be some excellent selling qualities to tout to potential gym members? These benefits are sure to make your gym one of the first choices in your city.

 

Low Impact on Joints

As we move into 2018, the workout industry has never been more focused on overall health and longevity. Athletes want to work out longer and harder without having to stop and be hindered by injuries. Many activities, such as the sprinting required for HIIT is extremely hard on the knees and ankles. When you sprint or jump on a hard surface, there is little to no support for your joints. When you complete those same motions on synthetic turf, the athletes body will go through much less stress as the turf absorbs a lot of the shock that would normally be transferred to the body.

 

Equipment Such as Sleds Slides on Turf

If you are a personal trainer, or an athlete involved in MMA or football, you know how important weighted sleds have become in many athletes routines. Sleds can be loaded with as much or as little weight as you want, then pushed or pulled by the athlete, providing a steady stream of resistance. The only problem with sleds it that they require a smooth surface to slide across. Many gyms do not have a space where a sled can be used but if you install synthetic turf, your gym will be sled friendly and pull in customers from all over your city who are looking to jump on the latest workout craze.

 

Drop the Weights on the Turf as Much as You Like

Have you attended a crossfit class lately? Many of the exercises that have been re-popularized by the sport involve picking up extremely heavy weights, dropping them on the ground and then picking them up again to repeat the process. How do you think your equipment will fair if it is constantly being dropped on cement or hard flooring? With synthetic turf, you can deadlift and clean and jerk all you want, bouncing the weights off the turf without worry. Dropping weights onto synthetic turf is also less noisy, especially when you have multiple groups of athletes all completing the same exercise.

 

Fall on the Turf? No Big Deal

As an athlete works out and becomes fatigued, the chances of falling and injuring themselves increases. This can happen in any situation but happens frequently during sprinting and agility drills. When an athlete falls onto synthetic turf, he rolls and dusts himself off- no big deal. When an athlete falls onto hard flooring such as cement of plastic padding, they are left with a serious injury that might even send them to the hospital. Of course insurance takes care of the majority of the liability that comes with owning a gym, but you want your athletes to be safe when working out under your roof. Less injuries, more happy customers!

 

There you have it! Four solid reasons why you need to invest in some synthetic turf for your athletic inspired business.
