No shock fitness flooring

In association with

Metro Fitness in Stockport owned by European boxing champion Matthew Hatton and his father, Ray Hatton, have installed Gerflor Taraflex™ flooring for their Stockport gym complex. The business was launched as a premium-offer budget gym in August 2012 and has since then gone from strength to strength, growing their membership year on year.

George Stylianou, Director, Metro Fitness said, ‘’the growing popularity in functional exercise amongst our members had prompted research into further developing our existing space. I wanted to go with flooring that was highly durable and that would cope with the volume of use, whilst being relatively forgiving to higher impact exercise’’. It was therefore no shock that Metro Fitness chose Taraflex™ from Gerflor- the no. 1 preferred indoor sports solution for over 60 years.

Taraflex™ has been used in every summer Olympics since 1976 and is available in 17 colours and two woodeffect designs. The Sport M Evolution product offers a very high P1 category shock absorbency which exceeds 25% and meets the EN 14904 Standard for indoor sports surfaces. Taraflex™ is recognised for providing durability, safety and comfort without impairing performance.

George Stylianou finally commented, ‘’the biggest compliment I can make is that the feedback is extremely positive, both from our resident professional boxers and coaches.”
