Gyms everywhere are starting to choose synthetic grass for their weight training and workout rooms for the multitude of benefits it brings including durability, resilience, sound absorption and pleasing aesthetic. That is why at Kennedy Fitness & Wellness, all of our fitness centers in South Jersey have rooms with an artificial turf surface.

Training on a turf surface is ideal for developing endurance, speed, agility, strength, power and coordination through a multitude of exercises. It’s perfect for sled drags, tire flips, broad jumps, medicine ball slams, prowlers, box jumps and much more.

Artificial turf is specifically designed for heavy-duty use, providing extreme durability. The strong, synthetic fibers allow the surface to endure heavy workout equipment. The shorter blades and padding create an ideal surface for repeated, high-intensity activity.

Enhances Performance & Reduces Injury Risk

Artificial turf provides athletes with the ideal surface type that can accommodate the weight and sudden movements of many types of exercise.
The slightly padded surface assists athletes in maintaining their positioning during precision movements like pivots and planting their feet for lifts, as well as stretching. It also allows them to maintain their rhythm and balance while focusing more on technique and strength. The stable surface will also decrease the risk of slips and falls.

The cushioning absorbs the shock of heavy weights and lessens the pressure on athletes’ joints. It prevents wear and tear on the knees and ankles and therefore, reduces soreness and the risk of injury, including shin splints.

Clean & Safe

Artificial grass is very easy to maintain. The turf fibers are easy to clean and disinfect, which lessens the chance of mold growth and staph infections. Gym-goers can train without having to worry about becoming ill.
