A gym is never going to be a quiet place with all the free weights, running, jumping, fitness classes, the impact of fixed weight and cardio machines.

In today’s society gym use is on the rise, this is due to a focus on healthy living and general wellbeing. Many gym facilities are now being built alongside or within residential developments. With a new build development, it is best to ensure all the acoustic flooring concerns can be dealt with and accounted for during the design stage. This way the correct gym flooring type can be installed from the start. There are many types of facilities including class studios, yoga studios, power lifting gyms, personal training studios, Crossfit gyms not forgetting your conventional fully equipped gym.
