I have a question for the board. I have a portable heavy bag that I got as a gift last year. I use it 1-2 times a week when I’m unable to get to my MMA gym and workout. Yes, it does make noise as it slides a bit when you hit it with some force.
I live on the top floor of an apartment complex. My neighbor directly below me is a shut-in. She’s seriously left her apartment I think maybe 5 times in the 3 years I’ve lived here. So, she’s always home. She’s complained a couple of times about the noise from the bag and claimed it’s caused pictures from her wall to fall (even though nothing’s even fallen in my apt., even my CD rack which holds 500 CD’s and is a bit fragile).
We do have a porch so now that the weather’s nice I was going to move it out there. The bag will still make noise, but I figure if it’s outside, then she has less room to complain, espeically if I’m using it in the middle of the day.
I’m thinking of buying some type of matting to put down to try and reduce some of the noise.
Should I bother with that or just set the bag up out there and let her deal with it? Only thing I worry about is her complaining to the office and then having to deal with them. I’d talk with her, but she’s seriously afraid to open her door.
Any other suggestions?
