Do you have access to get between the tub and floor? Is it just the bottom of the tub that flexes or the floor as well? I'm toying with the idea of shooting some low expansion foam under there. Once it cures, it becomes pretty stable/hard, especially when sandwiched between two layers like the florr and tub bottom. For the price of a can of foam and a couple of pieces of plywood, try the experiment and see if it works for you. Take two pieces of thin 3/16 or 1/4 inch plywood about the size of the shower tub, separate them by the same distance as in your TC using a couple of loose small blocks of wood, then slowly foam in the void. Maybe wrap the sides shut with newspaper or cardboard to keep the foam from coming out. Once the foam hardens in a day or two, remove the loose wood blocks, then stand on the plywood and see how much more rigid it has become. They make walls like that, why not the base of the tub/shower.
