We have built a proto type platform, that the rubber area is filled in with about 4" of carpet padding.

Good news is that it substantially reduces the floor vibrations caused by O lifts (90%).

Bad news is that it's soft and squishy, so every pull from the floor is from a deficit. No good for PRs, and no good for benchmark WODs.

Our situation is made even more infuriating by the fact that we are zoned M1, which is light industrial, and we have the right to have all kinds of noises going on in our space: there's a strip club 50ft away, and in our zoning we could have an airport or wood shop. Nevertheless, the owners of the trendy loft next door are threatening to sue if we continue having class early mornings. (our busiest times)
