Our team was part of the renovation for the Southwest Catalyst Fitness location. The owner liked the clean, modern look of polished concrete in his downtown location, and decided to implement polished concrete in his new space as well. Polished concrete is an excellent flooring solution for fitness centers because of its durability. Heavy equipment, machinery, and foot traffic are all abrasive to the floor, and polished concrete will perform well under these pressures. Aesthetically, natural-colored concrete provides a neutral, modern vibe for a space. The floor was polished to a 400-grit, satin finish. There was initially glue on the floor from a previous floor covering, which required some deeper grinding in the beginning of the polishing process. Because of this, aggregate exposure throughout the floor varied. This process brought out some of the natural character that polished concrete provides a space.
