Hi, I'm looking into making a home gym and rubber flooring in my mind is necessary. I intend on doing mostly free weights including deadlifts. This is the most important thing though with consideration to flooring, jump roping. I live in an apartment (1st floor) with carpeting. I have two questions. With regards to jump roping, I prefer the minimalist cushion possible as I prefer speed with the exercise. Do you guys offer anything that would be optimal for speed rope (minimal to zero cushioning)? Second, would the flooring damage the carpeting in any way, i.e. stains, chemical run off, etc? Please make any recommendations you feel are helpful and I'll take them under advisement. Thank you!
