Artificial Turf for Health and Fitness Centers
Artificial turf isn’t just for lawns and football fields anymore…
In recent years, facilities like athletic clubs, gyms, and health and fitness centers have had to adapt to become multi-use complexes with increasing personality and functionality to accommodate members needs, stay relevant, and stay ahead of the competition.
Artificial turf for health and fitness centers is able to offer valuable benefits for virtually any type of training activity including CrossFit, plyometrics, pilates, HIIT workouts, and more. Here’s why artificial turf always wins when matched up against traditional wood or rubber flooring:
1. Artificial Turf is Durable
Artificial turf is very difficult to damage and is designed to take rigorous beatings, day in and day out, and resist wear and tear. Artificial turf can withstand high foot traffic, dropped dumbbells, barbells and kettlebells, heavy duty battling ropes, and more. And at the end of the day, there aren’t any streaks to scuff out or indentations made like there would be in traditional wood floor.
2. Artificial Turf Helps Prevent Injuries
Artificial turf is far more shock absorbing than traditional gym flooring. The padded underlayment is effective in reducing pressure on the joints and minimizing shock to the ankles, knees, and hips—which is critical in HIIT’s high-impact, repetitive moves. Artificial turf is also slip-resistant and non-abrasive so your members can stay safe and perform at their best.
3. Artificial Turf is More Attractive
Artificial turf presents a professional, clean aesthetic while the burst of green adds vibrancy and infuses another layer of energy to any training facility or health club. Furthermore, artificial turf is completely customizable. There are a variety of colors to choose from and you can also add inlays, such as lines, numbers, or your facility’s logo to make a statement and deliver brand reinforcement.
4. Artificial Turf is Low Maintenance
Artificial turf is incredibly low maintenance, which saves you time and resources. Unlike hardwood floors, there aren’t time-consuming cleaning rituals that have to be performed after each training session with artificial turf. This saves time, while not having to purchase harsh cleaning chemicals or specialized equipment compatible with your floor’s finish saves you money.
If you’re ready to get a leg up on your competition by being able to offer a better, more unique, and safer training experience, it’s time to install artificial turf in your facility!
