!000# is a bit much. For those that go to a gym, you'll note a heavy machine will go up to about 250# and cover about 2'X2' at the support.

David, although 50 psf is sounds reasonable however, the magnitude of the point load is quiet big especially if you are talking
Bowflex, Weight rack, etc as your gym equipments. I suggest disregarding the descriptive word “home” and focusing the word “Gym” would eliminate the confusion. In my opinion a 150 psf plus a concentrated load of 1000 lb. would be ideal for this kind of application.

50 psf LL sounds reasonable for a home gym. Or am I way off? Any advice would be appreciated… TIA
