When building a home gym as your next do-it-yourself project, you'll need easy to install, hassle-free materials that'll save you both time and a potential headache. If you're planning on doing heart pumping aerobic exercise or some serious muscle building, you'll most definitely need a comfortable, yet resilient floor surface that'll protect your floor, your fitness equipment, and, of course, your body. And as a flooring specialist, I'm here to suggest Rubber-Cal's Rubber-Cal Terra-Flex Interlocking Rubber Mats - 1/4x24x24inch, 5Pack, 20 Sqr/Ft Blue Flooring Tiles,a perfect gym floor that offers durable protection and provides unparalleled comfort. Interlocking floor tiles are designed for a quick and clean installation, so there's no headaches when dealing with these. I've personally installed them under my set of free weights.
Now that you have great DIY gym flooring, you'll need a few more items that'll really make your gym, and your abs, pop. Here's the TKO Anti Burst Fitness Ball Set 75cm, a handy exercise ball that'll help tone your core muscles. If you happen to accidentally fall off the ball while exercising, at least you'll land on Rubber-Cal's impact absorbent rubber tiles. With a versatile set of dumbbells, like these Bowflex SelectTech 552 Adjustable Dumbbells (Pair), you can work out a majority of your muscle groups without the need for super expensive, difficult to assemble equipment. Perhaps your hands get sweaty and you drop a dumbbell, the rubber flooring you installed will protect both the dumbbell and your floor from damage.
After your sweaty, fat burning work out in your hassle-free, DIY home gym you'll probably want to clean off some of your equipment. Use a Hydryx Workout Towel to effectively wipe down your floor and equipment.
