Instead of paying lots of money on gym memberships, creating a home gym is not only cheaper but also, safe in a Covid and hopefully soon to be post-Covid world. We’ve teamed up with Black Swan to recommend their fantastic flooring options for home gyms!
We had some space in our musty garage, so we cleared it out, painted the walls and set about laying a floor! We had thought about a wooden floor or lino, but for exercising, we found a brilliant floor option from www.black-swan.ie They sell floor mats for gyms, patios, children play areas and spas!
We opted for their Platinum Floor mats, pictured above, which are recommended for gyms & spas. These mats are really good quality and will never curl up at the corners. They are quite heavy and once they go down on the floor, they literally don’t move! They are super easy to clean too, a mop and some warm soapy water does the job! Here we are in action, laying the mats down!
So easy to lay because there is no glue or anything else needed to lay them – just the mats themselves. Black Swan have mats in lots of different styles and colours. We opted for black with a blue fleck, see here
