5 Ways to Use Sprung Floors

Sprung Floors Are not just for dancing!

Did you know you can use our sprung floors for other activities besides dancing? Any type of exercise or activity that requires a comfortable surface is a good candidate for sprung floors. We’re talking anything from yoga to HIIT workouts to even just using them for standing desks!

Here are our top 5 ways to use sprung floors outside of the dance studio:

#1 Yoga or Meditation

O’Mara Sprung Floors provide a comfortable surface for both yoga and meditation that allow for the body to relax and reenergize.


#2 Home Gym

Doing plyometric exercises at home? We’re talking burpees, jump squats, jumping jacks, etc. Having a proper surface that can absorb the landing shock of these exercises gives your joints the ability to move more freely without pain. Sprung floors are a great addition for home gyms!


#3 Cooking or Washing Dishes

5 Ways to Use Sprung Floors Washing Dishes
Whether you’re cooking up a nice Thanksgiving meal or just cleaning the dishes after dinner, our feet can get tired from all that standing on hard surfaces or rubber mats. But if you place a sprung floor under your feet, you will instantly feel the difference in energy. Rather than feeling drained and sore after a big event at your house, you will feel energized and pain-free!


#4 Standing Desk

If you already have standing desk, good for you! There is nothing worse for your body than sitting all day long. But sometimes, standing all day on carpeted office floor with little to no cushioning can result in achey feet and joints. Adding an O’Mara Sprung Floor to your standing desk is a great week to increase your energy throughout the work day and reduce pain.


#5 Workbench

Finally, if you work at a machine shop or have a workbench in your garage at home, you might notice that your feet start to get tired after standing for too many hours in a row. Our sprung floors give your feet that much needed cushion without allowing you to completely sink in, like a rubber mat would do.

I LOVE my O'Mara Maple portable practice panel. It sounds absolutely fantastic and my joints/feet never hurt after using it (like they do when I take class at the studio)! It is a superb dance floor!!

Thanks so much for your excellent customer service, everything went like clockwork! The delivery, packaging, and timing were exceptional! The quality and precision of your products is outstanding, not to mention the fact you include all of the tools needed to install the floor. As a contractor it was difficult to believe that we did not have to make a single cut, everything was numbered and the diagram was spot on, thanks again.

From the moment the floor arrived your meticulous attention to detail was evident. The way it came crated blew me away. Nothing was left to chance, everything was secured and protected. It said a lot without saying a word. Rita called me earlier today after completing her first class..... "The floor made all the difference in the world" was her quote.

I would highly recommend the O’Mara Sprung floor system to anyone. The floor is studio quality, easy to maintain, and beautiful to look at, even after hours of tap dancing.

We are happy with the floor. The shipping was secure and done well. So everything is good. The floor is expensive but you can tell it is higher quality. I am actually using the floor in a 4 by 8 pattern right now since the 8 by 8 was slightly big for my space right now but at least I can expand it when ready. So I love the fact that you can change the size of the floor. Keep up the good work!!

It is perfect for tap dancing. It is well made and high quality. I have practiced or taken lessons in four different studios and until I practiced on this floor I could never really hear the steps clearly and how I was doing them. The sound and clarity of the floor is wonderful for tap dance. You can really “hear” if you are doing the steps right or not.

I’ve been meaning to email and thank you for all of your assistance and support with setting up our floor. We are very happy with it and the dancers like it as well.
