New research finds rubber flooring for the gym isn’t the answer

Aerobic exercise

Rubber flooring is popular with some gyms, but it can be a little pricey.

That’s because most of the rubber is made from recycled materials.

But a team of researchers led by Stanford University found that there’s a better way to keep the gym looking fresh.

They found that a simple rubber mat and a water-based adhesive can keep the flooring from looking “wasteful,” while reducing costs.

The researchers say they’re now trying out the new rubber mat with the hope that it can help make the gym more sustainable.
