How to Choose Crossfit Flooring Regarding Your Gym, Floor or Basement? 

When you are going to make a new CrossFit gym you will have confusions to choose the correct CrossFit flooring. You have to care about your equipment, the equipment is more expensive than the floor but the floor helps to protect your expensive equipment.

So with our experience, we advise you to choose the correct floor regarding your gyms situation and future plans. First, you will check is your gym a basement or a floor, if its a basement it will be easy if it is a floor than you will face sound and vibration problems.

If you have a basement you can start with 10mm rubber rolls (10mm rolls we advise for home gym Crossfit and garage gym Crossfit - not for commercial). If it is a floor than you have to start with minimum 20mm thick rubber tiles

For basement (ground floor) gyms

If you have a basement and if you will have a low sized capacity of members (up to 30 members) then you can choose 15mm rubber tiles (this will be like a studio)

If you have a basement and if you plan a medium-sized capacity (up to 50 members) than you can choose 20 mm thick rubber tiles.

And if you are going to have medium to a high sized capacity gym (more then 50 members) you have to choose 25 mm thick rubber flooring tiles.

For gyms on a floor

If you have a gym on the floor (not a basement) then you can choose your rubber flooring as indicated below.

Low sized capacity commercial gym (up to 30 members) - 20mm thick rubber tiles

Medium sized capacity commercial gym (up to 50 members) - 25mm thick rubber tiles

Medium to a high sized capacity commercial gym  (more than 50 members) - 30mm thick rubber tiles

Odor Problem on Rubber Flooring for CrossFit

Odor on rubber flooring mainly comes from the production process of rubber. Sulfur is the chemical which helps rubber to be stronger on the chemical production process. And the sulfur is the reason for the odor.
