You could do laminate flooring which is cheap and has many choices these days. Also you could add a rug after to give it a more warm feeling. This way you would have the softness of the rug with out it being damaged due to the scuba gear. This is assuming the gear would be in a closet and not in the middle of the room.

Q:Exercise - Pelvic Floor muscles?
Pelvic floor exercises are sometimes called Kegel exercises, after the obstetrician who developed them. Another name for the exercises is pelvic floor muscle training (PFMT). 1.)Try to tighten your muscles around your vagina and back passage and lift up, as if you’re stopping yourself passing water and wind at the same time. A quick way of finding the right muscles is by trying to stop the flow of urine when you’re in the toilet. Don’t do this regularly because you may start retaining urine. Once you've found the muscles, make sure you relax and empty your bladder completely. 2.)When you first start the exercises, check that you are doing them correctly. Put your hands on your abdomen and buttocks to make sure you can’t feel your belly, thighs, or buttocks moving. 3.)Don't hold your breath. You should be able to hold a conversation at the same time, or try counting aloud while you're doing the exercises. Don't tighten the tummy, thigh or buttock muscles - you'll be exercising the wrong muscle groups. Don't squeeze your legs together. Do your pelvic exercises at least three times a day
Q:how to get rid of divits in a cement floor??
Most flooring outlets especially ceramic outlets can obtain a floor leveller, it is a quick-drying cement that is used usually used to smooth out dips, slopes and other irregularities in floors before another surface is put on top of it.

Q:Floating floor versus gluing down?
Floating floor is a good solution for a slab basement. Be sure you get the sealed pad to go under it and it will feel great to walk on. I have a floating floor in my basement too. I think it's much nicer than tile, linoleum or carpet on top of a slab. The issues you may hit. The concrete slab may not be level across it's surface, try getting a long (12 foot or more) level and see where the dips/humps are in the slab. If it's really bad you can get a self leveling concrete product at HD/Lowes that you can pour on top of the slab. The dips in slab will cause the floor to feel like it's giving away under you when step there. If your basement floods the floating floor (or any floor for that matter) will be toast. It will still look okay, but all the seems will be obvious. We had a 100 year rain storm and we got water that came up through the slab, ended up with ~4 in the basement. Arghh. Make sure you have a good working drainage for your foundation before investing big $ on the inside of the basement.
Q:Best Floor Cleaner?
I have vinyl flooring and have always heard that you should use ammonia or bleach on vinyl.....I don't use Pine-Sol because it doesn't have the disinfectant properties that Lysol and Mr.Clean have (kills Staph, E-coli etc...).....I use Mr.Clean or Lysol....I just follow the mixture directions on the back and always use HOT water, this cleans great....also Future Floor Finish ( polish) leaves vinyl floors so shiny they look like marble.
