Lancaster, PA (July 7, 2021) – In sports, fitness and recreation applications, one size doesn’t fit all when it comes to flooring. Ecore, a company that turns salvaged materials into high-performance surfaces that improve people’s lives, now offers a Continuing Education Unit (CEU) focused on the benefits of high-performance flooring for athletes and fitness enthusiasts. The new CEU, titled “High Performance Flooring for Sports, Leisure and Fitness”, identifies critical performance needs for flooring in sports, fitness and leisure venues and offers architects and designers guidelines for selecting an optimal coating for different areas and applications.
“The COVID-19 pandemic, coupled with continued improvements in sports equipment, has resulted in renewed interest in health and a booming fitness and wellness market,” said Bo Barber, vice president sales and marketing executive for Ecore. “With the increased need for new and renovated sports, fitness and leisure facilities, special attention must be paid to the basis of all these spaces: the flooring. “
This CEU program covers flooring priorities for the most common athletic applications and how designed performance surfaces can deliver safety, ergonomic and acoustical benefits that enhance performance and protect athletes. and fitness enthusiasts.
“Flooring choices for athletic, fitness and recreational applications go far beyond price and color,” noted Barber. “The right flooring material can really improve athletic performance, comfort and enjoyment by absorbing shock, facilitating energy return and providing improved acoustics. “
After completing this CEU courses, attendees will be able to identify critical performance flooring needs in sports, fitness and leisure applications, and understand flooring priorities for the most common sports and fitness applications. Participants will also gain knowledge on specifying performance flooring for safety, acoustics and ergonomics and receive examples of flooring solutions in a collection of case studies illustrating how advanced flooring have benefited various sports venues.
