    Top 5 Most Frequently Asked Questions About Exercise Mats

    What is the best brand of exercise puzzle mats?

    Greatmats! Of course.

    What is the best flooring for a home exercise room?

    Home exercise rooms often times have different needs that commercial exercise areas. Most commonly ease of installation tends to be the biggest factor. For that reason 2x2 foot EVA Foam puzzle mats tend to be the most popular, along with flexible 1x1 foot PVC flooring tiles such as our StayLock Tiles.

    What is the right thickness for an exercise mat?

    This depends on the top of exercise you'll be doing. Generally ground stretches and yoga can get by with the thinnest exercise mats generally in the 3/8 inch to 1 inch range. On the other end of the spectrum is martial arts that include a lot of throws or falling. These exercise mats usually range from 1.25 inches to 2.5 inches of shock and impact absorbing foam.

    Where do you get an exercise mat with your name on it?

    Greatmats folding mats are capable of having custom logos and designs printed on the vinyl cover.

    Where can I find cheap rubber exercise mats?

    Greatmats offers a couple dozen forms of rubber exercise mats, starting at 98 cents per square foot.

    Exercise Mat Surfaces

    Gym mats are available with a variety of surface types. Different surface types are suitable for particular uses.

    Our folding gym mats are available with heavy-duty vinyl shells like those found in schools and universities. The vinyl cover is smooth and partially non-absorbent. It can also handle athletic shoes.
    Cheer mats are equipped with a carpet top which offers greater rebound and comfort.

    Other exercise mats may have different surface textures, including thatch, smooth, orange peel or ribbed surfaces - many of which are non-slip.

    Most of our thatch surfaced puzzle mats are scuff resistant against shoes and boots. These mats are also waterproof, stain resistant, and easy to clean.

    We also offer roll out mats and traditional judo mats with a tatami textured vinyl surface. This surface is one of the most durable options and provides additional grip for grappling and other combat sports. It's also easy to disinfect.

    For an option that is gentler on the skin, check into our no-burn tatami surfaced puzzle exercise mats. They provide excellent grip for barefoot exercises and will not burn your skin. This style exercise mat is very popular for combat sports such as wrestling or jiu jitsu. It also works for indoor play areas for kids who love to roughhouse.

    Our leather textured EVA foam mats are designed for bare feet and a controlled slip. This allows athletes such as striking martial artists to execute spinning kicks without putting unnecessary strain on joints.

    Foam Exercise Mats

    Because foam is highly comfortable and provides excellent shock absorption, it's a preferred material for gym mats. Foam exercise mats are popular for activities such as gymnastics, martial arts, cheerleading, wrestling, yoga, and floor exercises.

    Ranging from 3/8 inch to 2-1/2 inches in thickness, Greatmats' foam mats cover the full gamut of cushion needs. In most cases, a thick exercise mat will provide a softer cushion for landings or falls, while thinner options save storage space but provide less shock absorption. Thinner mats are generally designed for floor-based activities and are often more economical.

    Keep in mind that mats don't all have the same density or hardness, as some are designed for more stability while other mats are designed to prioritize cushion or even buoyancy. The type of foam used is critical in this process as well. A closed-cell EVA foam mat generally offers the most versatility without the need for a vinyl, carpet, denim or other form of cover.

    - Closed-cell foam mats provide a waterproof and soft surface and are often firm enough to stand or balance on comfortably.
    - Open cell foam will disperse impact across a broader area making for softer landings. These foam mats are most often covered by a vinyl or denim surface to contain the softer foam material.

    Most foam mats are lightweight and portable whether they fold, roll, or stack when uninstalled. They are also offered in a wide array of colors and are less expensive than most other forms of fitness mats.

    For your personal fitness space, you can find an individual foam exercise mat that will meet virtually any need. Our 5x10 foot roll out mats are perfect for practicing martial arts or gymnastics skills that require some cushion without needing a great deal of space. The same goes for our folding gym mats. Both can stand alone or be connected with other similar mats if necessary.

    Interlocking Puzzle Mats

    Interlocking mats are ideal for both home and commercial use. These mats are designed for easy installation and coverage of floor spaces of varying sizes and shapes. Most exercise puzzle mats are offered with border strips for a finished edge and some even have ramp border options which can be purchased separately. These border strips attach with the same puzzle style edge and can be removed as easily as unzipping a zipper.

    Because puzzle mats are available in smaller tiles that you assemble, they are easier to transport and handle. They make an ideal choice if you're looking for an easy DIY installation. If a tile is damaged, you can replace just that tile, rather than having to replace the entire floor. You can also easily expand the size of your floor in the future if you should want.

    Puzzle mats are generally made of a closed cell EVA foam which is durable enough to function properly without a cover. These mats will not absorb moisture. Some versions are reversible.

    Our small 2x2 foot puzzle style exercise mats are designed for home use and can weigh as little as 1.2 pounds per tile. These tiles will easily fit in the back seat or trunk of a car for transportation and can be installed by virtually anyone.

    Our 1x1 meter interlocking mats are generally intended for professional exercise, fitness, aerobic and martial arts studios and can weigh as little as 1.9 pounds per tile. Also easy to transport and install, the larger puzzle exercise mats leave fewer seams in the final installation. With the interlocking design of the pebble top foam exercise mats, you can customize your exercise area to fit any desired size or space.

    Personal Exercise Mats

    If you need a portable personal mat (also known as yoga mats) for home or gym use, our foam exercise fitness mats provide easy-to-store and easy-to-transport options. Our personal fitness mats offer the best when it comes to space saving, as they are the thinnest and most flexible form of mat we offer.

    Personal mats are as thin as 3/8-inch thick and can weigh as little as 1.25 pounds for a 1 2/3 by 4 1/3 foot mat. They are also available in larger and thicker versions. These mats are designed for floor exercises are not designed for high impact activities.

    For thicker and more durable personal exercise options, consider home roll out mats or folding gym mats. All are at least 1.25 inches thick and offer greater cushion and versatility than thinner options.

    Folding Exercise Gym Mats

    Folding gym mats offer the most versatility and durability among foam mat options for exercise and fitness. Although heavier and slightly bulkier than personal or puzzle-style foam mats, folding mats are fast and easy to install or pull up and store. A folding mat features a cross-linked polyethylene foam core wrapped with a durable vinyl cover and are often designed so that you can connect multiple mats together. Mats with hook and loop closures on all four sides offer the most versatility in terms of design options, and can be attached to form a large exercise mat.

    These mats generally fall in the 1.5 to 2.5-inch thickness range and start at about 18 pounds for a 1.5-inch thick 4x6 foot mat, and work their way up from there as size and thickness increases.
    Folding mats are commonly used as a padded flooring surface for cheerleading, martial arts, gymnastics, and general exercises. They can be used lying flat, partially folded for multi-level exercises, or even upright as wall padding for wrestling rooms, martial arts studios, and other athletic spaces where athletes or flying objects may make contact with your wall.

    Roll Out Exercise Mats

    Roll Out Mats, while still very portable, are easy to install and store, but they will take up the most storage space. These exercise mats start as thin as 1.25 inches and are offered up to 2 inches thick, 5-6 feet wide and a nearly endless supply of length options. The smallest option of a 5x10 foot mat weighs in at 22 pounds.

    Like folding mats, this mat also features a cross-linked polyethylene foam core, but the vinyl cover is bonded to the top rather than fully surrounding the foam core. Roll out fitness mats are designed to be used on a hard, flat, finished surface. They help to soften hard floors such as concrete or hardwood gym floors, and can also be used over carpet. The polyethylene foam base does grip carpeting well, helping to reduce or eliminate slipping. Over smooth, hard surfaces, such as concrete, however, you may need to take additional measures to prevent smaller roll out mats from slipping.

    High Impact Exercise Mats

    High impact mats designed for use with activities such as Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) provide increased shock absorption and safety for falls and other significant impacts.

    If you are looking for economical, easy-to-install, wall-to-wall flooring for facilities such as MMA studios, our high-density ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) tiles with interlocking edges are the most popular. These workout mats lock tightly together and can fill any size studio with ease and precision.

    These mats are available in thicknesses up to 1 5/8 inches and have critical fall height ratings of up to 4 feet. Some have even undergone testing in which eggs were dropped onto the mats from more than 65 feet - and the eggs did not break. In fact, they bounced!

    Our 10 x 10 foot wrestling mats bring a high school or college quality wrestling environment to your very own home.

    Rubber Exercise Mats

    Rubber mats are ideal for protecting equipment and the flooring beneath that equipment. Ideal for home or commercial gyms, heavier rubber mats can be laid directly over concrete and provide an outstanding buffer between your heavy equipment and the subfloor.

    For a more cushioned rubber flooring option, check out our plyometric rubber mats. These large mats come in rolls 4 feet by 10 feet in size and combine the durability of rubber with the anti-fatigue properties of foam. They are a great choice for areas where both equipment and aerobic activities will take place.

    Other economical options for large exercise mats include rubber flooring rolls that can come in lengths of up to 100 feet and start at just $1.22 per square foot.

    Our rubber flooring options come in black or black with white or color flecks. Most rubber workout mats carry a 5 to 10 year limited warranty and are made with recycled materials in the USA.

    Plastic Exercise Tiles

    When looking for flooring that can be used in carpeted areas or basements with moisture issues, consider our plastic tiles. Also available in numerous color options, our pliable plastic tiles act much like rubber but are impervious to water and will not separate over soft surfaces such as carpeted rooms. Great for aerobics as well as for use beneath equipment, plastic flooring offers the best of both worlds.
