Pavigym Motion flooring is fully recyclable and available in seven colours. Motion does not need to be glued or fixed to the subfloor. Marcos Requena, CEO of Pavigym, says: “Our commitment is to create quality solutions with the best technical performance and elegant designs for clubs, but also taking care of users’ well-being and providing them the best fi tness experience.” KEYWORD
