Gym floors geared towards American fitness
Rubber-Cal, an industrial rubber company based in Santa Ana, California, has announced the launch of a new line of interlocking tiles: the Cross-Fit rubber tiles. These new flooring tiles are a fresh addition to Rubber-Cal’s considerable line of rubber flooring options that are geared towards the fitness market of America.
Over the past decade, personal fitness has become a formidable industry in the nation’s economy. Health clubs have a presence in every state in the US and working out is a daily part of the lives of millions of Americans. According to the International Health, Racquet, and Sportsclub Association (IHRSA), the US fitness industry made revenues of approximately $28.1 billion and 58 million Americans exercised in health clubs as of the last study conducted in 2012-2013. The fitness industry is one of the few that is forecast to grow over the next few years. This $27 Billion Dollar industry has been growing at a rate of 2.3% annually from 2009-2013.
One of the most popular trends in fitness as of late is the recent explosion of the CrossFit style workout. This hard-hitting exercise regimen has taken America by storm and has been embraced by millions of people looking to get in shape. As of 2014, there are more than 7000 CrossFit gyms in America.
The popularity of this workout is reflected in the name of these interlocking tiles. The CrossFit modular flooring tiles are designed to be strong enough to handle the rigors of the CrossFit workout routine. They are made with durable and eco-friendly recycled rubber material. This tough material is capable of resisting the physical impacts that would otherwise damage sensitive surfaces like wood and tile. With these interlocking flooring tiles in place, people can freely do their intense workouts and drop all kinds of heavy weights on them without having to worry about damage to existing floors.
