Let’s face facts: As quiet as some cardio machines are (treadmills, Cybex Arc Trainers, exercise bikes and the like), they still make noise when in use. For some people—especially those living in apartments, dorms or other close-quarters—that can severely limit when and where workouts can happen.
But there’s good news: “Shok Mats” from Humane, available at Gym Source, dampen 90% of the vibrations from cardio machines and make their operation practically undetectable, even in tight spaces. With superb density and built-in air pockets, Shok Mats allow you to put large, robust (and sometimes noisy) machines in spaces where they otherwise wouldn’t be possible.
Shok Mats come in both isolated mat and interlocking grid styles, which means you can buy just enough for a single machine or purchase by the square for a wall-to-wall solution. The durable, long-lasting mats are made to retain their shape and stay fitted together perfectly, meaning much less maintenance for you! And the interlocking tiles come in 4’ x 4’ squares in a variety of colors for endless possibilities when designing your space.
At the end of the day, Shok Mats are a great solution for both residential and commercial spaces, and can be a win-win for users and their neighbors alike!
