Thinking about ways to improve your CrossFit facility?
You may find sports turf offers a few benefits worth exploring.
CrossFit is an intense exercise program that features high-intensity workouts.
CrossFit athletes perform dynamic exercises like Olympic lifts and plyometric jumps. This workout program uses non-traditional equipment such as sandbags, kettlebells, water-filled implements and suspension systems. Participants are challenged to do a certain number of repetitions in a workout in a specific time frame. These workouts are intense and involve very fast movements. Agility, flexibility, balance and power are all important concepts in CrossFit workouts.
Due to the intensity and precise movements involved in a CrossFit workout, this type of exercise must be performed on a reliable and stable surface covering for optimal effectiveness, as well as safety.
Benefits of Artificial Grass for CrossFit Facilities
Artificial turf offers an ideal surface for CrossFit workouts. The slightly cushioned surface helps athletes maintain their position during precision movements, lifts and stretching exercises. The turf provides support to the athlete. It also helps them maintain rhythm and balance. These factors allow the CrossFit athlete to focus on technique and strength. In addition, it provides a stable surface that will reduce slips and falls. Here are a few of the other benefits of artificial grass for CrossFit facilities.
In a CrossFit facility, durability is one of the biggest challenges when it comes to floor coverings. CrossFit workouts are very intense and require a surface that can hold up to the demands of this training. The padding and shorter blades of artificial grass create the perfect surface for daily, high-intensity activity.
Easy to Maintain
Artificial grass requires only limited maintenance. The fibers of artificial grass are easy to clean and disinfect. This reduces the risk of mold growth and staph infections.
Artificial turf provides CrossFit athletes with the type of surface that can accommodate the sudden movements of CrossFit exercise.
Athletes can pivot, turn and stretch more easily. The padding absorbs the shock of heavy weights and reduces the pressure on knees and ankles. The shorter pile also helps soak up the shock from sudden jumps. This prevents wear and tear on the athlete’s joints.
