A Floor to Remember

Probably the most important aerobic equipment choice is the floor. Gerstung Floors have been the choice of many fine clubs and universities for 20 years. The AirBase® design is a layer of imported plywood over Gerstung's exclusive Energy Blocks®. The result is excellent shock absorbency with resiliency, helping to reduce user injuries. The floor is completed with finished hardwood, vinyl or carpet. The floor's outstanding appearance coupled with user satisfaction helps your facility attract and retain aerobic instructors and patrons.
