the project

At Detroit Fitness Hub we care about the safety of our clients. This is why we need better flooring to protect our clients joints during various forms of excercise. We plan to purchase three types of flooring to help enhance our gym goers experience.

The enviornmental rubber flooring will help reduce the stress on joints during any fitness activiy. This flooring will also, help reduce noise and is easy to clean up after a good sweat session. Laminante hard wood flooring not only looks sleek, but is durable, long standing and would be super beneficial to our instructors who teach Zumba classes. 

Lastly, we plan on adding a strip of green turf in our long halway for our sport and agility excercises. The athletes that train there we are certain would love this for their drills. 

the steps

  • June 4th start purchasing flooring
  • June 15th start laying floor
