Britain has seen a surge in leisure facilities including specialist gyms, health and fitness centres, aerobic studios and new concept exercise parks in open spaces in recent years as people become more aware of the need to keep fit and healthy. Dedicated fitness and spa breaks are popular leisure activities, and as a result many hotels are now equipped with gym and exercise areas as the ‘norm’.

To meet this increasing demand, flooring manufacturer Gerflor has developed a range flooring solutions with the hospitality and leisure industry in mind. These new products meet the wide-ranging needs of diverse fitness facilities with differing requirements, including high performance, strength and being hard-wearing.

The company's 0.7mm, dry-back luxury vinyl tiles (LVTs), for example, which are available in plank and tile formats, are suitable for areas with heavy equipment like running and cardio machines. Desirable for their aesthetics, hospitality specifiers are familiar with their performance, wide palette of designs and colours, realistic wood and mineral effects and easy maintenance for areas as wide ranging as receptions and bedrooms. As a result, they have confidently widened their use to leisure facilities. It is however, easy renovation, loose-lay flooring with innovative fibre glass grid underlay technology that are the heroes in heavy load/weight bearing spaces, as they withstand indentation and provide the necessary stability where cardiovascular and similar machines generate friction.
