We're nearly halfway through January, which in our experience, is usually when those New Year Resolutions you set start to fall by the wayside.
One of the most common resolutions is exercising more. Maybe it doesn't come as a surprise, but between social distancing this year, travel time to the gym, and the crowded machines, it's not hard to imagine why that resolution doesn't always work out!
Solution: Create a Home Gym (We Can Help!)
When it comes to flooring in a home gym, you want something that is both durable (think scratch-resistant and able to withstand heavy gym equipment) and waterproof (Sweat? Spilled drinks? Damp shoes? You're good!). The flooring that checks all these boxes is LVP, or Luxury Vinyl Plank. Not only is it strong enough to handle the point density load of your treadmill or fancy new Peloton, it won't scuff when you move around your equipment or do the same exercise motions thousands of times in the same spot!
Another benefit of LVP is that it can be installed as a 'floating floor', which means it's a lot easier on your joints compared to a concrete slab, carpet, or even glue-down sheet vinyl. The floating aspect and attached pads create a small amount of buoyancy and will be far less impactful on your joints when working out!
