By Lisa Hobbie Created: October, 2021 - Modified: October, 2021

Rhythmic gymnastics incorporates dance and calisthenics with the use of a ball, ribbon, hoop, rope, clubs, or other equipment. It requires strength, flexibility, and coordination.

The olympic team and individual sport requires lots of intense training while wearing leotards and utilizing apparatus manipulation. The very nature of the sport requires a safe and sure footing that will offer freedom of movement combined with protection from falls, shock absorption, and unnecessary fatigue.

Greatmats offers the best mats and adhesives to use for rhythmic gymnastics, with the following 4 products representing some of the best selling and most popular choices:


These are top notch products that deliver exactly what is needed for successful rhythmic gymnastic practice and performance. They are designed to last, and they offer some amazing benefits and features.
