Thanks Erik. Good advice for a home gym setup. Especially for the power lifters who might need that "bounce" by putting the plywood under the rubber.

I never thought of getting the rubber stall mats from the farm supply store. Good call.

great advice Thanks for share
what is the appeal of home gyms? Well, as they say, just getting there is enough of a deterrence than the actual workout. With our busy schedules today it is hard to take 40 minutes out of your schedule to get a workout in, but add a half hour of traffic each way plus parking hassles, and most of us can't get there as often as we would like. Then once you get there, it is packed, lines for certain machines, you can't get on a treadmill, a class is full or you are late, and worse yet, there is a puddle of sweat left by the last person to use the machine.
The "Cheap Ply" you are talking about is OSB (Oriented Strand Board).
Yeah that's kind of what I was thinking too. Appreciate the quick response. Nice job with the flooring btw!

Don't know how often you keep up with this. But my main issue is I have a gentle slope in my garage. (about...1 inch per 4 feet, give or take, to help with fluid run-off etc.

Great job for the flooring! I love working out at my own home so the floor is one of the important things about home gyms.
Towards the front of the garage (near my house) it does have about a 3 1/2 foot flat raised portion that goes the width of the garage.

Don't want the dang thing rolling away from me while it's on the ground).
