Plyometric Drills, Aerobic Exercise, Work Out Mat
The Greatmats Plyometric Rubber Roll offers a perfect surface for creating a home plyometric workout area. You'll use this plyometrics mat for home plyo drills, including box jumps, side-to-side jumps, lunging, and all other aerobic type floor exercises. This home plyometric flooring is durable, high performing and convenient.
The density of this rolled rubber plyometric mat is lower than standard rolled rubber material. This provides the superior cushion and shock absorption needed for plyometric activities. Our rubber plyometric flooring consists of the same material that can be found in professional gyms nationwide.
We've collected some of the best reasons for making use of our plyometrics mat for insanity types of workouts, as outlined below.
Excellent Cushioning and Shock Absorption
This highly shock-absorbent rubber material comes in a one-piece roll of 4 feet by 10 feet for jumping or intense aerobics as well as advanced plyometrics. This rubber flooring has a slightly porous structure, creating the cushioning while remaining durable, which is perfect for plyometric exercises.
Box jumps: The rubber flooring gives you a sure surface from which to start your jump onto the box. And when you're jumping back down, the rubber has just enough cushioning to keep your joints safe. Additionally, the box will remain in place as you jump onto and off of it, because of the friction the rubber flooring provides.
Broad and skater jumps: You need a sure-footed surface when performing these plyometric jumps, which the rubber flooring rolls provide.
Jumping rope: When jumping rope, you could wear down some types of flooring by jumping in the same spot over and over. Our rubber flooring is designed for and will stand up to this type of repetitive exercise easily.
The rubber flooring absorbs sound, so if you're in a multi-floor building where the noise from people jumping on the floor while exercising could bother others in the building, this flooring can fix this problem.
For most types of plyometric activities, our 8 mm thick flooring will give you the cushioning you need to perform these exercises safely. However, if you plan to use free weights on this floor as part of your plyo exercises, you may want a thicker material. Kettlebells and free weights may cause damage to the sub-flooring when dropped if your rubber flooring is not thick enough. Contact the Greatmats customer service team to learn about our other options for the thickness measurement of rolled rubber flooring.
Cost Effective Material
Rubber rolls of flooring tend to be some of the most cost effective options for installing flooring in your home or gym. Additionally, because installation of rolled rubber flooring is a relatively easy process that you can perform yourself or with just a little help, you won't spend extra money on hiring professional installers.
Our 8 mm thick rubber rolls of flooring will cost less than rubber tiles or mats. Because of their size, these rolls will have fewer seams than other types of flooring too. The rubber flooring provides better durability than what you'll find with foam flooring. But foam flooring is lighter, which makes it easier to install and cheaper to ship than heavier rubber.
Calculating how many rolls you need for your plyo mat installation is a straightforward process because of the straight edges on the rolls. However, if you encounter any questions during the calculation process, please contact the Greatmats customer service team for some help.
Each roll of plyometrics mat weighs about 53 pounds and covers 40 square feet of area. When installing the rolls, you'll place them side by side, and there's no interlocking design required, so one person can perform the installation. However, the heavy weight of an individual plyometric mat means it's easier if more than one person is involved in the installation and moving of the mats.
Preparing for Installation
When preparing to install the plyo mat, you'll want to make sure the substrate consists of a hard and smooth surface. Concrete and wood are the most common types of sub-surface flooring for these rubber rolls. If the sub-surface flooring has any defects in it, these will be visible through the rubber flooring too. Repair any cracks, knock down any imperfections, and fill in any indentions in the subfloor before rolling out the rubber plyo mat.
Clean the sub-flooring as thoroughly as possible before installing the plyometric mats. Remove any dust, grease, and other foreign objects from the floor. Additionally, allow the sub-flooring to dry completely before you roll out the rubber flooring.
Finally, store the plyometrics mat roll in the same room where it will be installed, allowing it to acclimate to the temperature and humidity levels in the room, for at least 24 hours before installation.
Easy Installation Process
You can install the flooring with a dry lay installation technique, where you can tape it down around the edges. You also have the option of using a full glue down for a more permanent installation. If you choose a glue down installation, take care to not use too much adhesive, as excess glue could leak through the seams between the mats, creating a significant mess.
We recommend a glue down installation in areas where the plyometrics mat will be subject to heavy foot traffic. A double-faced carpet tape installation will work perfectly well for an area with average foot traffic for the floor. Do not use duct tape on the surface of the rubber mat to tape down the seams, as it will leave a residue on the floor that's difficult to clean.
Unroll the plyometric mat, starting in one corner of the room for a wall-to-wall installation. You'll want to leave a slight gap between the flooring and the wall to allow for expansion and contraction. Match the size of the gap to the thickness of the floor, so in this plyo mat installation, the gap should be about 5/16th of an inch (or 8 mm).
Once the installation is complete, we recommend using a 75- to 100-pound floor roller to ensure removal of all trapped air. Start in the middle of the floor and push the roller to the edges.
You can choose to create an island installation of the plyometric mat too. An island installation may be more appropriate in a space that is used for more than one type of activity. The island installation keeps the area that will be used for plyometrics smaller, allowing other activities or exercise machines to occupy other spaces in the room.
Excellent Quality and Durability
Our plyometrics mat rolls are Made in the USA products, which means you can count on the high quality of the construction and the durability of the materials. The rubber material in our plyometrics mat will not flake off on its own.
Our 5-year limited manufacturer warranty backs the unmatched durability of the rubber flooring. This floor is specifically designed to withstand the explosive repetitions performed in rigorous athletic workouts.
Like all rubber flooring products, this product does have some rubber smell. The level of odor is very low when compared to other types of rubber flooring in the same flooring category type and price range. However, those who have a high sensitivity to odors may not like this flooring in an enclosed space with little ventilation. Sometimes, you can reduce the intensity of the rubber smell in the plyometric mat by washing it. This smell also will reduce in intensity naturally over time.
If you do not use the entire roll of plyo mat in your initial installation, or if you need to pull up the rubber flooring to give the room another purpose, you need to store the roll in a vertical position. Roll up the flooring onto the cardboard center post that shipped with the plyometrics mat roll initially. Once the material is rolled up, you'll want to store it on its end, so the weight of the roll doesn't collapse on itself, which could happen if its stored horizontally. Do not roll up and store the plyometric mat without a center post. If you no longer have the cardboard center post, you can use a PVC post that has the same diameter as the original cardboard post.
Ease of Maintenance
Our plyometric mat rolls are economical and easy to maintain. You'll be able to perform a basic cleaning of the material on a regular basis, while undergoing a more thorough cleaning periodically as needed.
For daily, basic cleaning, you'll just vacuum the rubber flooring as needed. For a more thorough cleaning, use a damp mop with a neutral pH cleaner. Please note that the slightly porous structure of plyometrics rubber flooring material requires more drying time than standard rubber flooring. (This same slightly porous structure also gives the plyometric mat its resiliency.)
Be sure to avoid using any solvent or oil-based cleaners, such as Pine-Sol, Lysol, Murphy's Oil Soap, WD-40, or paint thinner, because these materials will cause the rubber flooring material to break down. Only use a neutral pH cleaner to clean the plyo mat rolls.
When you're ready to order our rubber rolls for plyometrics, please contact the Greatmats customer service personnel. We can help you obtain custom cut lengths, regular rolls of 10 feet in length, or custom lengths of 30 feet or longer. We also can send you a free sample if you'd like to see the quality of this plyometrics mat flooring.
Always use Neutral Ph cleaner on rubber flooring. Damp mop with hot water, use two buckets to keep mop clean.Shipping

Q & A⌃ Back to top
Please Tell me if this product is environmentally friendly. Can I have the specifications of the product. Thanks, Wlson
They have a strong smell like a car tire store. How long does it take for the smell to go away? Does it ever go away completely?
Can this be used on a carpeted floor? For pivoting and kickboxing and things like that?
Does the rubber flake off the mat at all? I've heard some rubber mats do that.
Little Silver, NJ
The three of us love the Mats it makes a big difference in our work outs less noise, less fatigue on the bod.
The mat is heavy gauge and perfectly smooth- just what I needed for exercising at home. I roll it up when not in use and secure it with bungee cords.
great plyo mat!! I work with pro and amateur volleyball players.... enough said! Have them doing a lot of plyometrics and having concrete floors made a huge difference with the amount of force on their joints.
I would recommend this product to anyone. took about 4 days from ordering to delivery, Inexpensive and easy to install.
Santa Monica, CA
Product was as stated on the website.
Came as ordered just in time for x-mas. Easy to install will not move unless you are trying to move. No glue or anything needed. Just remember to get the zero ph-cleaner, will keep your mat or mats looking good. My home gym is now finished. Just hard workouts with DDP yoga.
I purchased these mats to replace those foam interlocking mats in our workout room. So far, I love these new mats. They have spring and work great for our high impact workouts. We use these for workouts like T25 and Insanity Max30. There was a bit of a smell for about a day. The mats are really heavy and don't slide much. I will need to tape the two mats together, but don't see a need to glue them to the floor.
They work very well for plyometric and weight workouts.
We love the floor and the rubber smell went away faster than I expected. The only issue I have is it's hard to clean. I used a looped end cotton mop and the fibers stuck so then after I clean, I have to vacuum (over and over) to get all the little pieces of the mop up off the floor. I'm hoping in time the stickiness will go away.
San Antonio, TX
Bought two rolls for our garage which we put under our heavy bag. My wife and I workout boxing and kick-boxing. The mats don't move even on bare concrete. We also jump rope without a problem. We unroll and roll them back up after each use. They are heavy enough with enough cushion for working out. But light enough to roll-up and put away after each use. We are redoing out exercise room soon and intend to but several at that time.

We really like the plyometric mats. A lot of time was spent figuring out where to get them and how thick they should be. Price was a big concern because these mats can get costly. The thicker they are obviously the more expensive they will be especially if they are being delivered through a shipping company. These mats were not inexpensive to that point. But when it comes to proper cushioning of feet and legs during exercise a few dollars is just that over the long run. We unroll and roll-up these mats a couple of times a week in our garage. We use them under a heavy bag and my wife and I put them to the test with twisting and turning as we train and exercise. Rarely do we have to tap them back together because of shifting. So the weight and thickness is good for what we do. The one did come with a defect though. A six inch rip or tear about a foot from the end of one of the mats. I didn't contact the company because I felt it would be a hassle to fight this or have to ship it back. So the concern was will this get worse? So I got rubber cement and smeared it over that whole area. So far so good and it seems to have solved the concern we had. But only time will tell.

Just as the name implies....great mat! I'm going to order another one.
Awesome service and really great product. *****
Great product!! I highly recommend it!
Perfect for what I needed. Customer service was very helpful
Greatmats shipped in a timely manner. Product is as described. Works well for jump rope, Bosu stability ball and kettle bells. Good give and traction. Had pronounced odor for a few days in basement. Can only smell now if nose is very close.
Great for keeping your grip when working out
Old Saybrook, CT
Terrific mat which my wife uses for her Plyo exercises. We have installed in our garage on the epoxy floor and it does not slip at all and is also comfortable to lay on and also absorbs shock from your legs. Nice look and texture also. Worth the price.
I use the mat for Insanity and other cardio/plyometric/PAP workouts. At workout time it's unrolled onto the living room floor. The floor is a wood laminate, and the mat does not slide at all regardless of lateral jumping. It provides great traction, even with substantial sweat on the surface. It's somewhat heavy, but that keeps it in place during use and is a function of its excellent durability. Very happy with this mat. When done working out, I just let it air dry, roll it up, and it's out of the way.
Mountain View, CA
I absolutely love this mat. I searched and searched for a mat to perform P90X Plyometrics on that was large enough and could absorb the shock of the numerous jumps of the routine. This mat is huge and slip proof even after sweating all over it. It has just the right amount of cushioning needed to protect my joints but not so soft that it affects balance. I am really happy with this product and how quickly Greatmats delivered my shipment.
