Lisa Hobbie // 2020

Do you have a loved one who really takes weight lifting seriously? Does the idea of mastering a deadlift, olympic power squat, or other intense lift thrill and challenge them? If you have serious weight trainers in your life, you may find yourself wondering what the best gifts for weightlifters are. When it comes to finding the perfect Christmas, birthday, Valentines Day, Father’s Day or other celebratory gift for that special coach, or girlfriend, or boyfriend who lifts, look no further than the flooring offered at Greatmats! 

Foam Flooring - Best Gift for Weightlifters


When thinking about gifts for male and female weightlifters, this Pebble Top Fitness Tile is one of the great ideas at Greatmats. 

These cool mats are among the best designed specifically for use in home weight rooms and gyms. They are made of super high density and durable EVA foam with the ability to withstand the use and abuse from heavy weights and weight equipment. 

This durable flooring is waterproof and free of lead and latex, and it is easy to clean with a broom or gentle vacuum. Each tile measures 2x2 feet, creating 4 square feet per tile which can be installed wall-to-wall, or, as an island installation to go under weight machines. 

The interlocking edges simplify installation and hold each mat tightly in place, even when they’re subject to stress from the dropping of weights. At just over $2.50 per square feet, this is one of the more affordable DIY flooring ideas, too. 

Thick Rubber Mats for Weightlifting


Stall mats make great gifts for this lift and dripping heavy weights. These 100 pound mats are super heavy and super tough. They are made from 100 percent recycled rubber and are 4x6 and ¾ inch thick. 
The durability and thickness of this product does an excellent job protecting the subfloor from damage caused by the dropping of free weights or the weight of machines. It also provides stable comfort and traction. 
They are easy to install by simply laying them down without the use of adhesives, and once in place, they will perform well in even the most abusive conditions. 
Each mat is just over $51 or about $2.15 per square foot, making it another affordable gift option. 
This durable gym mat system provides a nice buffer against cold and damp conditions, with a grooved underside which allows for drainage and the flow of air.

Rolled Rubber Flooring for Weight Rooms


Perhaps, you are looking for the most economical gift floor for weightlifters. If so, this rolled rubber product is a great choice. 
Regrind rubber is a second run material which is offered at a discounted price. It is made in the USA from recycled rubber, so it is a green product that is MAS Certified. It features extra small flecks of 10 percent color with various colors in the mix. 
Even though you can grab this product at a low price, it still offers all the great benefits of rubber. These rolls are easy to clean with a sweeping, vacuuming, or damp mop cleaning process, and they are stain, mold, and mildew resistant. 
The floor has a smooth finish, and it can be glued or taped down on a hard, flat surface. This product is in the neighborhood of $1.60 per square foot, so super affordable for the lifter on your gift shopping list.

Rubber Flooring Gifts for Weightlifters


If you like the notion of affordable gifts for weightlifters, but prefer a tiled product over a rubber roll, this is an excellent choice. These tiles feature all of the same benefits as the regrind rubber roll, but they are instead 2x2 foot rubber tiles that are ⅜ inch thick and interlock for an easy installation. This product is very durable, and it will thrive in even high traffic weight rooms without damage. 

These tiles come in many colors, and once laid into place, will not separate for a smooth, seamless finish. This recycled, green product is made in the USA and comes with a 5-year warranty. It will cost about $1.95 per square foot, so it’s another super affordable gift option. 

Geneva Rubber Flooring Rolls for Weightlifters
