HIGH IMPACT FLOORING

Extreme flooring for extreme workouts and extreme(ly hardcore) people!

If you are running, jumping, burpee-ing and jumping rope along with other plyometric movements, you and your floor need some extra protection.

High impact flooring is thicker and more shock absorbent. It is built to handle the abuse of heavy weights and plenty of traffic. When you need the ultimate flooring protection for your floor and your joints, we recommend 3/8”, 1/2”* and higher.

*Popular choice.
