As the UK is about to enter another decade the desire for the overall population to be more fit and healthy has never been sharper, and the burgeoning growth of health clubs and gyms has blossomed.

A short distance from Shoreham-by-the-Sea in the small village of Lancing, South Coast Gym offers classes, personal training, a fuel station and the latest gym equipment all aimed at delivering a healthier, fitter lifestyle for local residents.

When South Coast Gym Owner Neil Donohue decided to expand the gym’s facilities in order to offer a larger and more extensive facility, he turned to international flooring specialist Gerflor to supply 130m2 of sports flooring that could deliver a high performing, multi-use solution for the studio area.

The project would see South Coast Gym expand into the next-door unit creating 11,500sq/ft of gym, class and functional space which involved updating and redesigning both units. They have also added a Café for healthy eating and now consider themselves to be the best facility in the area.

Neil Donohue commented, “The floor was expertly laid and looks amazing as it has blended in with the raw industrial look we were looking for. The floor has stood up well to all types of activities from Bounce, Yoga, Pilates and HIIT classes and is a perfect match for all these classes.”

The specification of Taraflex® Multi-Use was the ideal choice because of its multi-use function, ease of maintenance and indentation resistance particularly with static gym equipment such as spin bikes.

Taraflex® sports flooring from Gerflor offers a wide range of colours and is suitable for a variety of applications and has been used by the largest international sports federations (volleyball, handball, badminton, table tennis) for decades.

Also widely used in education and health and fitness markets, the Taraflex® range has solutions for all safety and performance requirements and its large colour and design palette means it can be used to reinforce a business’s brand identity and build customer loyalty.

With Taraflex® Multi-Use there is no need to compromise between sport usage or multi-purpose activities. This stunning multi use sports flooring is available in five wood-effect and two concrete-effect designs.

Neil Donohue ended by saying, “We will always use Gerflor from now on as the quality and look is exceptional.”
