We chose this product for our combination home office / home gym. They arrived quickly and the product looked as promised. My girlfriend installed the mats as soon as they arrived before I could even get home to help. (She said it was easy to do with just a pair of very sturdy home scissors). The finished project looks good! The mats are comfortable and provide some cushion over the hard wood floors. Given the room design and dimensions, the mats do not move while we workout on them. I can see where over time they may deteriorate faster than we would like; but, given the price point and the material chosen, these mats are doing exactly as advertised and promised. A good choice for the price!
We like the floor product.
Turned out really great and was easy to install! My kids love playing on it :)
These mats were easy to install and have made our basement a much safer and softer place for the children to play

Our daughter has epilepsy and started falling during seizures. We decided to turn her bedroom into a ''soft'' room by removing all of the heavy furniture, mounting her t.v. on the wall, changing her bed, and replacing the carpet with the 7/8 inch foam flooring. I have to say that this floor has saved my daughter from serious injury on numerous occasions. When she falls, her head makes contact with the floor first. This floor has been a saving grace, allowing her to play in her room without constant supervision and without wearing a helmet. She loved it the moment we put it down. The non-slip pattern on it helps with traction, but can be slightly abrasive to the knees of crawling kiddos and makes cleaning and drying a little difficult. But the pros totally outweigh the cons and I have recommended this flooring to others. [The attached pictures show the floor in place at two angles. Not great shots, but you can see the flooring looks like a brown rug. The bed was temporary until her new bed came in and the legs were terrible for the mat causing deep indentations]
These mats are awesome. We installed them only just yesterday so I cannot attest to their life span just yet but I got them for two reasons: for my kids to play on and for my wife and I to do our cardio workouts (Insanity & P90X). I did my first Insanity workout on them this morning (barefoot assuming it would help keep the longevity of the mats) and I was surprised at how well they worked out.
The rep I spoke to both online and over the phone, Jim Schott, was extremely nice and helpful. He actually recommended a slightly different product because I was installing the mats on top of carpet which they do not reccomend (mats will slide on carpet and may separate at the seams if carpet is too plush). But I did it anyway. I have an older carpet that is more or less of a commercial grade (hard, not plush) and the mat underneath the carpet is too old to worn to provide any spring to it. I did have to add a cheap no-slip carpet mesh under the mats to keep them from moving but it works like a charm. Will return to increase or lower my rating from 4 stars after I see how they hold up over the next few months. Overall, great buy.
Excellent fit between pieces. Easy cutting around room edges.
So far, we are very happy with the mats. With more time, I might be increasing my rating to five stars! The color is great, the smooth (cleanable) but soft texture of the surface is welcoming, easy to walk and work on. Installation was pretty simple once we realized the edges called for one of two versions. Other people in the community are asking for Greatmats information to order their own mats.
For the value, this mat has been very durable. It is used in a small commercial martial arts school and is holding up very well. I have had in in use for a year and just ordered more to expand it.
LOVED THE MATS! They came super fast and have worked out perfectly!
I use the mats for my workout room. Replaced some cheap mats. Product quality is excellent. Pieces fit together perfectly. Rather slippery compared to my old mats but I'm thinking that will go away with use. One warning... I use a folding chair for some exercises and the chair feet leave permanent divots in the mat whereas my old cheap mats bounced back. Not something I care too much about but thought I'd share. Overall I'm happy with these mats.
GreatMats is the best. This is my second order with them. As always they were excellent at answering my questions and offering solid advise based on their expertise and experience. Their prices are great and my mats arrived very quickly, were exactly as ordered, and were easy to install. Our exercise room looks fantastic. Now we have a floor that not only looks great, but is awesome for Zumba, P90X, yoga and whatever else.
Awesome product. The quality is top notch and
So easy to install. We love the look and our grandkids
will love the checkered pattern we did with the reversible
tiles. Very happy with this purchase.
Quality product and super fast free shipping!
These were easy to install and looks great!
I needed a cushioned floor in a small detached garage in order to turn it into an agility training space. Great Mats had the best product at the best price. They worked with me on my larger order when it became clear that a freight truck could not get to my house. It took me less than four hours to put down the floor in a 22 x 44 space.
Love these mat...they are thick and dense...easy to install...
I am using the mats to be a portable mat for golf cart repair. I wish that I had ordered 1 more mat. They have worked great.

I ordered this for my wife and I to use during our workouts on our new basement floor. They fit the space well, but do slide at times and are big and a tad bulky. Would be better probably if we could leave it down, but that doesn't work for the space. I would purchase again.

These mats have been perfect for our home gym in the basement. They give a lot of cushion but also a lot of support. I'm very happy with them.
