What's The Best Flooring For Aerial Bungee Dance?

By Lisa Hobbie Created: December, 2021 - Modified: August, 2023

Aerial bungee dance is a fun and exciting addition to any fitness regime, and it’s for anyone who loves leaping and dancing through the air.

Aerial bungee dance can be seen as a great workout and allows participants to work with gravity to build muscles and sculpt a leaner physique. Perfect for anyone looking for an effective exercise program, this low-impact cardio workout class incorporates the use of an elastic bungee cord attached to the participant's back via a harness and carabiner. It is easy on the body’s joints and a fun combination of flight, acrobatics, and aerobics.

Safety is a huge aspect of aerial bungee dance, and adequate mats and safety flooring should be in place to protect from fall-related injury, equipment malfunction, or other hazardous events that could occur anytime you’re hanging off of a wall or ceiling. Certification of instructors is a must, and safety measures must be in place anytime you’re taking a class, participating in a workshop, or mastering your skill.

Greatmats offers a wide variety of aerial bungee dance mat options, with the following 6 products representing some of the best and most popular choices:

This durable and dense closed-cell EVA foam mat absorbs impact, offers anti-fatigue benefits, and is dense enough to offer a sure footing over which to perform bungee or similar fitness activities. It is also very easy to clean.
