When you need a durable home cheerleading mat that also provides plenty of padding and cushioning, the Gmats Cheer Mats 5x10 Ft x 1 3/8 Inch product is a popular choice among our customers. It's popular with good reason, as this mat provides excellent performance, yet it's also portable, because it rolls down to a small size that's easy to carry.
Soft and Durable
These home cheer mats make use of a polyester needle punch carpet top with an EVA PE foam base. This is a great surface for durability, giving the students the kind of traction they need to be able to perform their skills properly. Our foam features a material density rating of Shore C 30, which shows its cushioning properties.
And the EVA PE foam on the underside of the carpet top yields a soft landing that will help students practice longer. They won't suffer muscle fatigue while using these home and school practice mats, and they'll have softer landings for the ankle, knee, and wrist joints during tumbling passes and jumps. This will allow them to practice longer and more successfully, while also remaining fresher on days when they have a gymnastics or cheerleading performance.
With a size of 5 by 10 feet in the cheerleading stunt mat, it covers 50 square feet, making it a great size for working on cheerleading jumps or gymnastics tumbling. If you need an even bigger space, you can take advantage of the straight edges on each side of the home cheer mats. Line up two mats side by side to create an area of 10 by 10 feet for tumbling and jumping. Another option is to line up two mats end to end and create a longer tumbling run of 5 by 20 feet using the home cheerleading mat units. If you want to connect more than one cheerleading stunt mat, we do offer Velcro strips that allow you to make this connection securely. Just contact the Greatmats customer service team for more information.
The mat for home cheer rolls 5x10 ft x 1 3/8 inch product features a smart design in the foam section of the mat that allows the mat to be rolled up to a tight diameter. When rolled up, these home cheer mats have a diameter of about 18 inches. You then can store the mat easily without occupying too much space when it isn't in use.
The foam on the underside of the cheerleading stunt mat is split along the width of the foam every few inches. When the mat is flat to the ground with the carpet top visible, it will appear to be a solid mat, and the cuts in the EVA PE foam will not be noticeable.
However, when it's time to roll up this home cheerleading mat, the splits in the foam will come into play. As you start rolling up the mat, the splits in the foam layer begin to pull apart, allowing you to roll the mat up tightly without worrying about putting stress on the foam layer and tearing it. With the water jet system we use to cut the foam backing with the cheerleading stunt mat pieces, the cuts are precise, ensuring this system works perfectly.
Once you have the home cheer mats tightly rolled, it becomes easier to move them. An individual cheerleading stunt mat weighs 30 pounds, so one person can carry the mat if required. This makes it easy to move the mats from room to room, should you need to store the mats in a different location than where you use them.
Another reason why these home cheer mats work so well for a cheerleading team or a gymnastics team at school is because these teams often have to share practice space with other sports teams at the school. Because these home cheerleading mat options are portable, you can carry them to another area in the school when you have to change practice rooms.
These cheerleading stunt mat products also work great for using for a school cheerleading team that performs at football or basketball games. You can roll out this mat on the sideline of a football game or over a track and field surface to give the cheerleaders a soft landing space. And the same goes for rolling out the mat over a hard wooden basketball floor, where the mat provides a bit of cushioning.
Additionally, if you're running a cheerleading practice, you'll love having these mats available, especially if you're working in a small area. You can perform the skills you need to work on that don't involve the mats first, but when you're ready to work on jumps or tumbling moves, you can unroll the mats and resume practice in no time at all. This is a huge advantage over working with heavy, large mats that take a long time to move around, such as wrestling-style mats that some cheerleading teams use.
Using Mats at Home
If you have a child who participates in cheerleading or gymnastics, you can use our home cheer mats to give them a safe practice area at home. You can install the home cheerleading mat over a flat floor in your home, and it will be safe to use, providing cushioning, even if the mat is laid out over an extremely hard floor, like cement or wood. Just be sure that if the child falls off the mat's surface inadvertently, you've removed any objects he or she could crash into.
Another option is to make use of the Gmats Cheer Mats 5x10 Ft x 1 3/8 Inch product outdoors. Find a dry, flat area outdoors, and you can lay out the cheerleading stunt mat, even over grass.
However, we would not recommend leaving the home cheer mats outdoors for any length of time, as these mats are not UV treated, meaning excessive exposure to sunlight could cause damage to the polyester carpet top surface over time. Additionally, the home cheerleading mat will absorb water and liquid, so using the mat over a wet area outdoors could result in water damage for the mat.
Carpet Vs. Vinyl Top
Although you can use our mats with polyester carpet tops for both gymnastics and cheerleading practice, some people prefer one over the other.
Carpet: A carpet top cushioned mat generally is considered more of a cheerleading mat than a gymnastics mat. Carpet top mats will provide a good traction surface for cheerleaders, who will be wearing shoes as they're competing. However, athletes can also work on the carpet top surface with bare feet, so this mat will work for practice for both types of sports. Another good reason to use a carpet top foam for cheerleading is because it gives catchers during stunting the ability to maintain their footing on the carpet, which keeps everyone safer.
Vinyl: Vinyl mats tend to be foldable, meaning you can fold them up and create a thicker padding in the mat for gymnastics athletes looking for a soft landing spot. Vinyl tends to work better with students working out in bare feet or socks, which is what occurs with gymnastics students, rather than working out in athletic shoes. Vinyl pads will appear in multiple thicknesses, which also can be more helpful for gymnastics. Gymnasts will be working on equipment and apparatuses where the padding requires a certain fall height rating to be safe. Carpet top mats don't have the fall rating required for these types of gymnastics events. Carpet top mats are made more for practice for tumbling and jumps.
If you have any questions about which type of mat you should order, please give our Greatmats customer service team a call to discuss your options, as we offer many different kinds of mats to meet your practice needs.
Another reason to appreciate the Gmats Cheer Mats 5x10 Ft x 1 3/8 Inch product from Greatmats is because of how easy it is to maintain. This home cheerleading mat product will clean up with a simple vacuuming, just like you'd do with other areas of carpeting in your home. Should you find a stubborn stain on the polyester carpet top of the cheerleading stunt mat, you can use a rag and a carpet cleaning solution to hand clean the stains. Let the area dry completely before you roll up the mat.
We're sure you'll love the durability and comfort of our home cheer mats. They work great for practice at home, at school, or in a studio setting, and they're also extremely portable, making them a versatile option that you'll find yourself using during every practice session.
We offer either black or blue carpet top surfaces on with our Gmats product. We also have a few different size options for you with this style of carpet top mats, as well as different thicknesses for the foam.

Besides the thickness of the mats - what is the difference between the Cheer Mats and the Martial Arts mats? I am looking to create a home gym for personal training, which includes a lot of aerobic exercise and plyometrics. Which would be the best choice between the two for that purpose?
Is it also good for gymnastics?
Would this product work for fitness classes?

Great Mat ! Rolls away quick and not so bulky. My athletes love the mat as well!!
The size and ''cushiness'' of the mat are great - my 10 and 13 year old girls love it! My only complaint is that when it arrived there were 4 big chunks out of one end of it- as if when whoever rolled it up to put in the box had trouble picking it up and ripped big chunks out of the foam on the back. Luckily it is on the end so I am not that worried about anyone getting hurt, but it is just disappointing that it was still sent to us that way...
