A new and rising trend in fitness centers across Laguna Niguel and the rest of Orange County is using synthetic turf in lieu of natural grass lawns or more conventional indoor flooring surfaces. Artificial grass is already a popular choice for lawns and landscaping, but it has recently seen a surge in use for physical exercise purposes, for numerous good reasons.
Versatile & Adaptable
Synthetic turf is great for use in both indoor and outdoor applications. Outdoors, a synthetic turf field always looks fresh and green year-round, with or without rainfall and watering. Indoors, synthetic turf installation provides more underfoot comfort than hardwood or rubber flooring.
Artificial grass doesn’t need to be watered or mowed the way natural grass does. This means that you spend less money on water and lawn maintenance equipment, which means a lower upkeep cost for long-term operations. Cleaning synthetic turf is simply a matter of quickly rinsing it with a hose to wash away dirt and occasionally brushing to remove larger bits of debris.
Safety & Durability
Artificial grass drains water quickly thanks to a system of channels and grooves built under the turf that prevents puddles from forming. This means that outdoor fields don’t develop puddles, which makes it far less likely for people to slip and fall while running on it shortly after rain. Additionally, natural grass fields growing on soil develop holes, bumps, and divots as people exercising disturb and distort the ground. This can also cause people to trip and fall and suffer injuries. Artificial turf is much tougher than grass and soil, preventing this damage from occurring. Turf can withstand sled pushes and pulls, heavy foot traffic, dropped exercise equipment, and more without suffering from cracks, ruts, or indentations. Synthetic turf can even be installed with shock-absorbing pads underneath that reduce pressure on people’s joints and cushion falls when they do occur.
Aesthetics, Style, & Customization
A splash of green adds vibrancy and a sense of good health to a fitness center, and thanks to the fact that synthetic turf looks good at all times, it presents a clean and professional style for your business. Synthetic turf comes in a broad range of colors, pile heights, yarn compositions, and backings, so it’s suitable for any application. Some businesses prefer rubber or cork infill and padding, while some go without. Synthetic turf can also feature inlaid lines, hash marks, numbers, and business logos to facilitate training sessions and enhance brand awareness.
