If asked what he thinks about Regupol® Aktiv™, World Gym President Mark Messina has a simple answer: “It’s an amazing product.”

In Aktiv, Messina found the perfect flooring solution for his ever-expanding line of fitness centers. Recent World Gym projects – located in Cheektowaga and Niagara Falls, NY – each include between 17,000 and 20,000 square feet of Regupol Aktiv. The response from local gym goers has been fantastic.

“Our athletes love the product,” Messina said. “We get a lot of compliments, they say it looks so clean, and everyone wants it for their own basement or garage.”

Messina couldn’t be happier with the results, as he needed something that would be durable and attractive, yet easy on the athlete’s bodies. Satisfied with his experiences with recycled rubber flooring, Messina knew Regupol was the perfect fit for his new facilities.

“It’s really durable, and the price is competitive. For slightly more than carpet, which wears out in only two years, we use the rubber flooring which will last virtually forever,” Messina said.

An extremely cost-efficient alternative to carpeting and other sports flooring systems, Regupol Aktiv gives custom looks in addition to performance. The durability, slip-resistance, and sustainability of Aktiv make it a homerun for World Gym.

Does Mark Messina want to include Regupol, especially the Aktiv line, in future brand expansion plans? “Absolutely.”
