So the gym I Personal train at is remodeling and I get to choose a bunch of equipment we get. However, in the equipment catalogs I never once saw a dead lift platform. Anyone know where we can get one online?

Most people build their own. I would think this would save you a ton of money over ordering one.

After you build it you can put carpet or rubber mats on the top to match the rest of the gym if that is a concern. If you are semi-handy it is quite simple to build.

Company called PowerLift sells some Heavy Duty equipment. I know they sell deadlift platforms, which can also have custom designs put on.
www.power-lift.com I agree it would be cheaper to build, but if it is their dollar, power-lift has some great equipment. I own several pieces of their equipment and it is top line and extremely heavy duty.

I think these guys build some of the Elitefts brand equipment. They supply a lot of school weightrooms.

edit: Can't post links yet. Cut and paste.

Build your own, without a doubt. Save yourself a couple hundred dollars.

Build it. You can make a nice one for around $150. 5 sheets of Plywood, 2 horse stall mats and some screws and glue. If you want to get fancy you can use 4 sheets of plywood and laminate flooring on the top between the horse stall mats.

So so so sooooo easy to make your own.

This is our Oly clubs design. For a deadlift platform you could probably get away with half that length, even more. These platofrms are 2.4m at the front, and about 2m from the side. You could perhaps keep the same length from the front, but make it 3 feet from the side.

Won't cost you more than 150. Horsestall matts and horse grade rubber is your surest best, super good stuff.

Thanks for the links guys.

Why would I build my own If my gym is paying for it?
