With the increase in CrossFit Gyms, we have been developing our range of artificial turf flooring for CrossFit suitable for general gym area and sled push areas. We have two main products we use, such as Meadow Twist, which is a very hardwearing product with a uniformed pile surface. It can be used in all areas of the gym; with its smooth pile, it has a uniformed resistance when using it for a push track. Our Wonder 26 is a 26mm pile fake grass for CrossFit with a distinct pile direction. On push tracks, it has both an ‘easy direction’ to push and a ‘hard direction’ that is good for CrossFit gyms with users of different levels.
With our gym flooring, we offer a full fitting service. With our cutting service, we can include corporate logos, measurement markers or lane markers; this can be done on either surface and supplied with the logos pre-installed into the grass. This will allow for DIY installation with expert advice available on which product to choose or tips on installation.

Huntsman CrossFit wanted a sled pushing area produced from our hardwearing Meadow Twist range that has proven very popular for gym flooring. The artificial turf for CrossFit provides a stable and grippy surface to work out on and with its short pile; it gives the same resistance in all directions whilst tolerating very heavy traffic especially when weight is being used on it.
For this gym flooring installation, the custom inlay logo was produced in our factory using colours from the meadow twist range to match with the corporate logos. It was installed directly onto a new smooth latex floor to provide a perfect base for the artificial grass to be fastened to using our specialist adhesives.
As with all sled runs, care has to be taken when planning how the edges will be finished, as trims around the edge are usually the first thing to fail. This can result in a sharp or untidy look, especially if weights are being used around the mat – as these can damage most trims if dropped onto them. We have a few solutions to this problem for when your planning your mat, such as having the sledge mat surrounded by heavy duty rubber mats (which can also be stuck down so they don’t move during use) or by cutting a 10mm channel along the perimeter of the mat where adhesive will be inserted. The grass will then be tucked into the channel, which will provide a ‘natural’ ramp, free from trims.
