Thread: Cheapest gym flooring

  1. #1

    Default Cheapest gym flooring

    How much would the cheapest gym flooring be? And where would i get it? Doesn't have to be good quality, can be dodgy / second hand --> after all, it's just going into my garage gym.

    Thanks.

    EDIT: bumper plates are going to be dropped on them...from overhead.

    I like the commercial ones from gymdirect. Better off paying an extra $10 and NOT getting cheap ones - after all, its going into your garage gym and bumper plates are going to be dropped on them...from overhead.

    Yeah gymdirect is the go, much cheaper than anything I've found locally.

    My gym is in my garage and I have an old piece of carpet as my flooring. Being a tradesmen I had easy access to old, decent carpet.

    Even look at making you own olympic lifting platform. I ended up getting everything from bunnings for 8 foot x 8 foot platform.
    Included about 5x sheets of 1.2 x 2.4 ply, some 25mm thick pine and all the screw for about $350.

    The I purchased some rubber to cut up for the sides and did the rest of the room with economy rubber for about $30 per square metre!

    Interesting . . .

    May have to do something similar myself in the future.

    Heya, been reading for a while, but decided to log in to post my experience.

    I hunted around for ages, and ended up with Gym Rubber from a place called Carpet Tiles 1 in Marrickville NSW

    Its the same stuff that gymdirect has but was cheaper. They also ship it really cheap anywhere you want to, so was a great option for me, or you can pick it up from them in Marrickville.

    I got mine on ebay from them for $30 per square metre, but they also have their own website I found out afterwards.

    Hope that helps.

    If you're in Melb, i've got what you need. I've sold 10sq, got 10 left which i'm listing on eBay soon.

    Check the for sale forum. It's the real deal, I paid premium for it.

    Cheers,
