Fitness Flooring TilesPosted on: June 25th, 2010 by Charles Pruett
I have been doing some home renovations today, and I often thought about how I would have LOVED to have a kneeling pad to preserve my knees! I’ve been kneeling on hard, half-inch thick, cement board used as underlayment beneath ceramic tiles, and my knees are rather sore now. I also think just one of these mini jumbo, EVA foam floor tiles would work well as a kneeling pad, as they are 2’ x 2’ square; the jumbo, 4’ x 4’, interlocking gym flooring tiles would be much too large for just kneeling on.
I know…these foam flooring tiles are not really intended to be used as kneeling pads, and are classified as exercise flooring, but let me tell you, when you’ve been on your hands and knees, on concrete sub-flooring [tile backer], for several hours, you begin dreaming about something—ANYTHING—softer to kneel, sit, crouch, and maybe even take a nap on!
