Dunamis Therapy and Fitness - Weight training area
Rubber Gym Floor, Rolled Rubber Weight Room Floor
When Dunamis Therapy and Fitness to opened its fourth facility in Augusta, Wisconsin, in December of 2014, the unique 24/7 fitness center with a connected outpatient physical therapy clinic wanted to make sure it had all its bases covered.
'Most physical therapy clinics don't have the option of having a 24/7 fitness center,' said Office Manager Trina Lindner. 'We can work on patients and then they can continue their therapy (including aquatic therapy) on their own outside of their therapy visits.'
With concrete flooring throughout the building, sound travel was an area of concern - especially in the free weight area where the noise of clanging steel can aggravate even the most seasoned fitness veterans.
To solve this problem, Dunamis Therapy and Fitness opted to install 3/8 inch thick Greatmats rubber flooring rolls in its 24 x 25 foot free weight area.
'We have a long narrow building, so the noise travels far and fast,' Trina said. 'It takes away some of that noise.'
Trina pointed out that Greatmats' rubber matting also protects the concrete floors from dropped weights. An added benefit of the rubber floor covering is its ease of cleaning, especially during the vacuuming process. Mopping can be a little more difficult due to its non-slip surface.
Dunamis Therapy and Fitness, founded in 2003, has three other locations in western Wisconsin, including Chetek, Thorp and Eau Claire, and an Altoona facility is in the works. Greatmats rubber flooring was also installed in the Thorp facility around the same time as the Augusta center and has had the same result.
'It doesn't move, and it's comfortable,' Trina said.
