    I want that carpet.
    Reminds me of my HS gym, where you couldn't do lat pulldowns with more than your weight, or it doesn't work. 130 lbs= skinny 7th grader in my case haha. If only we knew about the...

    The pain from repeatedly landing on my knees on wood is (almost) unbearable.

    First off, I think your plan of just covering the whole thing with stall mats is solid. Go for it!
