Quick-Step designed and set up a real pain cave as part of the cycling team’s training camp. With a focus on performance and aesthetics, thanks to Alpha Vinyl floors.
Alpha Vinyl: the best floor for your home gym
Alpha Vinyl approved by Quick-Step cyclists
A strong vinyl floor for a strong athlete
The first thing you’ll be looking for is an ultra strong floor. Jumping up and down, weights falling, a bench that needs moving... A lot can happen in a pain cave. Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl has an ultra strong core to help protect it from impact damage. The unique top layer is resistant to scratches, so you can put your floor through its paces without ever having to worry.
Vinyl is resistant to blood, sweat and tears
Resistance to stains and waterproofing are also important criteria for your home gym floor – after all, the chance of someone spilling a sports drink or glass of water is pretty high. Quick-Step vinyl floors are 100% waterproof, which means that water cannot penetrate the grooves, all thanks to the innovative click system. Add to that the water-repellent top layer, and there’s no sweat when you sweat.
A new floor in your home gym in three easy steps
Designing a pain cave in a room that was previously used for something else? You won’t need to be concerned about irregularities in the floor that’s already there. You don’t usually need to treat the subfloor before installing Alpha Vinyl – it can usually be installed right over the top of existing tiles.
A stylish vinyl floor in your home gym
It has to look good too. Alpha Vinyl floor designs are barely distinguishable from real wood or stone. As Alpha Vinyl is resistant to water, scratches and impacts, you don’t need to lay an obtrusive rubber floor over the top to protect it. It’s an effective floor for your home gym that looks good too.
Alpha Vinyl floors have been designed to perform, both in functionality and in design and style.
Strong, high performance, always pushing boundaries.
They’re born winners, much like Quick-Step Alpha Vinyl cyclists.
Having a dedicated room to exercise at home was already becoming popular, and the pandemic has turned it into a firm trend. With the long-term closure of gyms and yoga studios, people are looking for an alternative in their own homes. It goes without saying that a multifunctional sports room can’t make-do with just any kind of floor. It needs a soft floor that can also take knocks, like Alpha Vinyl from Quick-Step.
