Low tech diagnosis: Jump up and down on the floor where you want it. If it is bouncy, you may have a problem.

Simple solution if it is too bouncy is distribute the weight with something under it and make sure you place it on a support beam.

Bouncing will be the biggest problem. I can’t see a 500 lb static load being a risk of crashing through the floor.
