What is the Best Pole Dance Fitness Flooring?

By Lisa Hobbie Created: May, 2020 - Modified: October, 2023

Pole dance fitness is one of the hottest fitness crazes. It is known for its unique ability to help the dancer build the core and upper body muscles while experiencing self-expression through a variety of passion-filled movements. Pole fitness combines dancing and acrobatics from which dancers experience improved balance, coordination, and a boost in self-confidence. To set up a space for pole dance fitness in a home or studio setting, a good quality dancing pole and an adequate pole dance floor are essential. 

Poles typically have a thick rubber mount base that protects the floor from scratches or divots, but the pole will put some downward pressure on the floor. So, it is imperative that a pole dance floor that is durable and designed to withstand heavy use and abuse is selected. The floor should also be able to provide some level of protection should a fall occur, and it should have a smooth surface so the dancer’s feet can easily rotate. 

Greatmats has a number of dance floor options that would be suitable for a pole dance fitness floor application - with numerous sizes, styles, and material selections available.
