How to Choose the Perfect Home Gym Flooring

Unlocking the Power of O’Mara Sprung Floors for Your Home Gym

Bringing your fitness journey home is an exciting step towards a healthier, more active lifestyle and a body that is fit for life. Yet, beyond choosing the right equipment and planning your workout routine is the most important yet often overlooked element: your home gym flooring.

What makes the best home gym flooring and why is it so important? The perfect home gym floor is the one that gives your body the protection it requires to perform optimally for life, the one that supports your body in feeling good. When you exercise to support your health, longevity, and lifelong fitness, your home gym floor should provide the proper support too.

O’Mara Sprung Floors is the game changer you need to create a home gym environment that’s functional, aesthetically pleasing, and takes your fitness experience to new heights.

The Importance of Sprung Home Gym Flooring

Your home gym flooring is a key investment in your overall well-being. The significance goes beyond aesthetics; it directly influences your health and lifestyle. Home gym flooring from O’Mara Sprung Floors does it all.

Our wood home gym flooring is sprung to protect your body and enhance your workout with a flexible yet supportive surface underfoot. And while aesthetics aren’t everything, we give you those too.

Optimal flooring in your home gym sets the stage for improved health by ensuring you are able to reap the benefits of regular exercise.

High-quality home gym flooring improves your quality of life by offering a foundation for holistic health and wellness. Remove the typical roadblocks of aching feet, low back pain, and painful knees by reducing the typical stressors of too-hard flooring as well as the instability of rubber mats that are too soft.

Finding the perfect flooring for your home gym benefits your workout routine and is vital for these reasons:

Safety & Injury Prevention

Sprung gym flooring absorbs impact, reducing the risk of injuries during workouts. It provides a cushioning effect that protects joints and prevents unnecessary strain on the body.

O’Mara Sprung Floors specifically builds home gym flooring that is both supportive and flexible, offering the best environment for safely conditioning your body to higher levels of fitness. Our sprung gym flooring helps prevent injury while performing repetitive jumping exercises, loaded weight-bearing movements and training at high intensity.


Your home gym flooring should be built to last. The right home gym flooring will last for a decade or more, protecting both your body from injury and your existing floor from the wear and tear caused by heavy gym equipment, weights, and constant movement.

A durable home gym floor gives your body consistent and predictable protection and support over the entire lifespan of the floor.

Comfort & Confidence

The right exercise flooring creates a comfortable and aesthetically pleasing workout environment, providing a platform that draws you in to exercise on a more regular basis. Home gym flooring that has been designed with your well-being in mind gives you the confidence to come back day after day knowing you’re always taking one step forward towards your health and fitness goals.

Equipment Stability

Gym equipment (e.g., treadmills and weight racks) requires a stable, level surface. The proper home gym flooring provides the necessary support for equipment and prevents wobbling or shifting during use.

O’Mara Sprung Floors has a specific protocol for adding extra support in the areas where you will be placing heavy equipment on the floor, ensuring that your equipment and floor perform at their highest standards.


Different types of exercises and workouts demand a variety of flooring characteristics. O’Mara’s sprung flooring accommodates a variety of activities, from high-impact workouts such as crossfit and weightlifting to yoga and cardio dance.


Easy-to-clean flooring contributes to simple maintenance for a hygienic workout space. This is especially important for home gyms where regular cleaning is essential for an inviting, clean-smelling and healthy environment.

Our nano-ceramic finish allows for easy and effective cleaning; daily maintenance involves damp-mopping with water only. For a pleasant scent, you can add a drop of your favorite essential oil to enhance the atmosphere of your space.

Aesthetic Appeal

The right flooring enhances the overall aesthetics of your home gym. It allows you to personalize the space, creating a motivating and visually appealing atmosphere for inspiring regular workouts. O’Mara Sprung Floors finished wood sprung fitness floors take this quality to the highest level.

Hear it From Our Clients

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!!

We are loving the floor and received rave reviews during our first season!

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.

Forrester G.


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.

Roger & Rita O.


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.
