Benefits Of Exercising On Cork Flooring

Home Improvement
Fitness centers are becoming more popular every day and they seem to be popping up everywhere. During the construction of these new fitness centers Cork flooring is the ideal choice. Soft and flexible cork has attributes unique to itself and unattainable in surfaces constructed of concrete, tile or wood. Cork has excellent resiliency and a very large capacity to flex and or compress which allows recovery from impact far more forgiving for both the floor and the object hitting the floor. These properties improve both comfort and safety in a facility designated for working out.

Many certified personal fitness trainers will agree that Cork flooring is superior to other flooring in that it offers the smooth and firm support that is necessary for rigorous exercise. No other material can absorb flex and shock as well and no other material is as satisfactory. Heavy equipment used in gyms can easily scratch or damage hard wood flooring, cork is more resilient to the weight and roughness of machines used in a gym. The elasticity of cork is great for high traffic volume that may occur in a busy gym. Weights accidentally being dropped are slightly less harmful as the cork can absorb a large amount of impact and may reduce damage to the weights and the floor itself.

A Cork flooring exercise room provides other benefits as well. Respiratory benefits may be observed as cork does not store mites and does not allow mold and mildew to easily grow. This means less debris and airborne pathogens in the air while exercising and they will not be inhaled while ventilating deeply during exercise. With cork being a pure material there are no microfibers shed on impact and no off-gas is let off and there are no worries about the flooring being potentially unhealthy.

With anyone susceptible to impact related injury such as rehabilitation clients, older clients or younger exercisers who work out at a high intensity carpet flooring over concrete can be detrimental to joints and bones. The more impact the body received the higher the probability of injury is. Joint breakdown, arthritis, shin splits, carpal tunnel and other ailments can be slowed by using cork to help absorb impacts during exercise. Carpets that are too soft can also increase the risk of rolling an ankle but pronating and rolling outward or supinating and rolling inward. By using cork flooring you lower the risk of injury and increase stability.

Inconveniences may also occur when using carpet flooring, particularly in a home gym. A good amount of exercise machines when put in carpeted rooms sink into the carpet. This causes issues when attachments and inserts to the machines which are located at floor level are difficult to access and cannot be easily switched. For some machines to have 100% functionality they need to remain at floor level. In the home cork flooring allows for more convenient movement of exercise machines and a much safer environment to exercise in daily. A floor that will flex and absorb shock is much better than any floor that will transmit more shock and cause more damage to your body.

Whether it is in the gym or at home, Cork flooring Exercise Room will help you avoid unnecessary injury. At iCork Flooring you will find a fantastic range of Cork Flooring at surprisingly affordable rates.
