I have a converted carport to garage, with an unfinished but smooth concrete surface. I'm slowly building up my home gym, and I'm interested in options as far as flooring goes. I'd like to build a lifting platform, not unlike these:
The challenge here lies in when I park the car-I'd have to run over the platform. My car would undoubtedly damage any normal platform. I could just make portable ones easily, but I'd like to entertain 'finished', permanent options.

- Create a strong 'cover', that the car drives over. When I pull my car out to train, I would remove the cover, revealing an in-ground platform. In ground platforms look like this: Flush Platform
