What Are Fitness Tiles? 

Fitness tiles are an excellent covering for both at-home and commercial gyms. The tiles are easy to install and come in a range of thicknesses. Depending on the tile you buy, tiles either slot together like a puzzle or require some sort of adhesive. This means that you can find both temporary and permanent options for your fitness tiles. 

The most popular material for fitness tiles tends to be rubber. This is because it’s super durable, long-lasting and has plenty of grip and traction for safe movement. Fitness tiles protect not only the user but also the equipment and subfloor. 

Another benefit of fitness tiles is that they help to minimise sound and acoustics travelling. This is especially important in a home setting, or anywhere you have neighbours. When you combine explosive movements like HIIT workouts with weights, it can create a lot of noise and sound. To create a more calming and focused environment, you need to make sure the sound doesn’t travel too far. 

How Can You Use Fitness Tiles? 

Fitness flooring have several uses. Although you can create a fantastic fitness space, they are also ideal for children’s play areas. The 20mm tiles are suitable for a wide range of activities like general fitness, HIIT, martial arts, free weights up to 140kg, and functional training. 

If you’re looking to lift very heavy weights or Olympic weightlifting, you will need something a little more heavy duty. You can get a 60mm rubber gym tile that supports hardcore weightlifting. So, if your primary purpose is lifting heavy, it’s a good idea to go with a much thicker tile.
