A gym membership is a very expensive purchase, which is why many people are choosing to create an at-home gym in their garage.
While it is important to take time to consider what gym equipment you are going to purchase, it is also essential that you think carefully about what type of flooring you choose.
For the best gym experience, you need a floor which is strong and sturdy but also comfortable.
To find out the pros and cons of the main floor options for your garage gym, continue reading.
A popular choice for garage gym floors is using floor paint.
The pros of using paint on your floor are that it is easy to apply, and is available in a range of colours to suit your tastes. Using paint also means that less prep is required, as the paint will sink into the concrete.
While painting the floor is easy, there are some disadvantages to using this method.
Firstly, the installation of the floor paint can be time-consuming. It can take 24 hours for your garage coating to be at full strength and for you to be able to walk on it.
Plus, if you try to paint your garage floor in the winter months, it can affect the durability of the paint.
It also offers poor resistance to common garage spills and has poor sensitivity to moisture.
There are advantages and disadvantages to using epoxy on your gym floor. The main advantages are that it is easy to clean, stain-resistant, and has a glass-like finish. It is also customisable with a variety of colours and blends to choose from.
However, a major disadvantage of epoxy is that it can take up to 72 hours before you are able to walk on the floor. Plus, all prior coatings must first be removed, which can be very labour intensive.
MMA resin is a new development in garage flooring, which offers fast installations.
You are able to use the floor just 45 minutes after the resin has been applied, and it has excellent resistance to garage spills such as oil.
MMA resin has an excellent low-temperature installation, down to -25 degrees Celsius. Plus, it has excellent sensitivity to moisture and is weather resistant.
