Top 4 floors for your gym’s cardio area

The cardio area of your gym is one of the largest, most visible and most used areas of your facility, so how do you choose the right flooring? 

 When choosing flooring for the cardio area, it is important that it is resistant to machinery such as bikes, ellipticals, treadmills and all the other options you offer your clients in this area. You should also look for options that are hygienic, as sweat and other liquids are more likely to drip onto this area. 

 Here we show you the best ones to make your cardio area attractive, functional and maintain high hygiene standards. 




1.The most durable and hygienic floor: Performance

 Pavigym’s best solution for cardio areas. It has been specially designed to withstand the machinery of this area, preventing machines from moving and marks on the floor.
