The exercise and fitness market continues to grow with more people seeking a healthier, balanced lifestyle. This is evident through the popularity of free-weights and cross fit classes, with people looking to simplify their weight training around social groups.
Increased participation in weight-based fitness activities has given rise to a number of new innovations, with simple, robust resistance equipment being preferred to complex, high-tech machines. Equipment such as battle ropes, push/pull sleds, free-weights dumbbells and barbells are leading the way.
With this increased demand for free-weights based workout comes the need for basic workout spaces. Many derelict buildings and warehouses are seeing new life through conversions into basic workout areas. And, along with the basic equipment, these areas need mats to protect the floor from damage and provide a safer workout environment.
Step forward MMA Mats, with their ever reliable ‘GymGuard’ solid rubber interlocking mat. Described as the ‘King of Free-weights Mats’, the GymGuard weighs in at 18kg and is 1m square in size.
