I recently received four grey interlocking floor mats from Shock Athletic's Silver Services to review. Made by Venture Products, which makes a variety of mats and flooring, the mats are infused with Microban® antimicrobial zinc technology which works to prevent the growth of stain- and odor-causing bacteria and to keep the mats fresh and clean.
I thought to myself, what will I be able to write about these these fairly basic gym flooring squares that will be interesting, relevant and stylish? I gave him to my kids on the porch, went inside and checked some email, drank an iced coffee, and came back outside. Let me tell you, those kids had found 101 awesome uses for these gym squares.
Just a few fun ways you can use put these fitness squares to use at your home:
- Jump roping surface
- Gymnastics area
- Yoga mat
- Picnic "blanket"
- Base for tag
- Lava land for imaginary fairy game
- Car or train mat
- Fort building materials
So, do I recommend Shock Athletic's gym flooring? Yes, absolutely. Just not necessarily in your gym.
