Flooring needs to not only ensure the health and safety of members, put provide a bright aesthetic for the club


It’s very common to fi nd carpet in


fi tness and sports centres: it’s soft and comfortable underfoot, has a visually appealing fi nish and also cuts down on noise. But its nature requires continuous and expensive maintenance, and even with such maintenance, it can be easily stained or damaged and is very diffi cult to repair. This can be unattractive, and especially unhygienic for a modern health and wellness facility. With the use of dumbbells, studio bikes and other activities in the fi tness room, carpet requires expensive yearly maintenance in order to keep its original look. Loose fi bres from the carpet can even create a greater necessity for machine maintenance, as they get entangled in the motors.


TECHNICAL FLOORING As a specialist fl ooring supplier, Pavigym fully understands the technical, comfort, health and safety requirements for different activities and can achieve a spectacular customised look for the sport centre. From the many possible materials, shapes, colours and styles, it’s very important to select the right one for each activity and for each environment. Making the right choice can save operators money and trouble in the long run. For example, Pavigym tiles are easier to

dust that can get into the mechanisms and damage them, in the way that carpet does. The tiles also absorb sound and vibrations and prevent the sliding of the equipment. The company not only offers Pavigym


tiles, but also other products that deliver on specifi c technical and aesthetic requirements in each part of the facility.


FLOORING AS A FITNESS TOOL Solutions that give fl ooring a new functionality as a training concept are now available. This kind of fl ooring enhances the image of the facility and enables new activities to be introduced or promoted. Pavigym has integrated technology in


fl ooring to create a complete workout using the fl oor as a work tool. Its Functional Zone product creates an exclusive, personalised and innovative area within the fi tness facility, designed to enhance the experience of both functional training and personal training. Integrating such solutions in the fi tness


centre is another way of attracting customers and making them feel the gym has something special.


The best way to make an optimal


fl ooring choice is to collect and study as much information as possible before making the fi nal decision. There’s no need to study the details and technicalities of one solution or another in depth, but it’s important to be clear about key operational and performance aspects of the various alternatives and manufacturers. That way, the solution chosen will be a source of satisfaction for you and your customers for many years to come.


As a leading company in technical fl ooring, Pavigym offers fi tness clubs a complete solution – from the design of different areas through to the installation, backed up by a complete customer care service to guarantee the durability and longevity of the selected fl ooring products.
