CROSSFIT: TOUGH ON THE BODY. TOUGH ON THE FLOOR. When we say Regupol America is made to withstand the heaviest of workouts, it’s because it’s been tried and tested by the one of the world’s most intensive training methods – CrossFit. As the principal strength and conditioning program employed by police academies, military special operations units, champion martial artists, and professional athletes worldwide, it’s become a global phenomena in the health and fitness arena. Grueling workouts, pushing the boundaries of physical ability and mental dedication are the hallmarks of this fitness regimen. While bodies strain to meet their personal goals, the facility floor underneath takes a regular beating with dropping barbells, heavy foot traffic and the use of implements such as tires, boxes and kettlebells. With the need for ultimate durability, Regupol America is the sports and fitness flooring of choice for CrossFit devotees nationwide.
REGUPOL AND CROSSFIT: A TOUGH COMBINATION.
The CrossFit Games are the ultimate test of fitness – a grueling three-day competition in which the world's fittest athletes compete in a variety of workouts. The 2010 games, held July 16-18 in Carson, California, are limited to 50 men and 50 women, all of whom need to qualify to enter.
As a proud sponsor of the 2010 CrossFit Games, Regupol America will ensure that while these hard-burning athletes are pushing their bodies to the ultimate limits, the floor underfoot will be equal to the task. Regupol products, by virtue of its advanced manufacturing technology, offer the density, resilience and wear resistance demanded by the CrossFit Games. Regupol America is outfitting the games by providing 12,000 square feet of Aktiv flooring to ensure the athletes’ safety and help boost their performance
