    Home Gym Flooring

    Does anyone have recommendations for home gym flooring? I want something that’s hard wearing and can install myself. I don’t drop weights on it (at least not intentionally). It’s to go on a concrete slab of a domestic house.

    Aerobic exercise - do we need it?

    I know a lot of peeps here say "cardio pffftt!" But, do we need sustained (12-15 min) aerobic exercise?
