Gym Mats Q&A

What are the different types of gym mats?

For your best gym mat options, select among interlocking tiles, roll out mats, and fold out mats to match the plans for the space. Fold out mats have the most cushioning while interlocking tiles cover a large space inexpensively. Roll out mats can create a runway.

What are the best gym mats for home exercise?

When creating a workout space at home, determine whether you want a space for aerobics, yoga, exercise machines, weightlifting, cheerleading practice, or something else. Folding mats provide cushioning against falls and during ground-based workouts. EVA foam tiles are easy to install and inexpensive. Rubber works best under exercise machines and with heavy workout equipment.

How often should gym mats be cleaned?

When cleaning your gymnastics mats, daily cleaning is a good idea if multiple people are using them each day. Otherwise, cleaning them once or twice a week for periodic use should be adequate. If you notice debris, grime, or dirt on the mats, clean them immediately. 

What are the best garage gym mats?

Because garages often have a hard, sturdy subfloor, you may want to select a gym mat for the garage that simply goes directly on the floor and provides the desired level of cushioning. EVA foam can go over concrete while providing insulation against the cold concrete floor. Use a rubber mat if you need extra durability. Foam fold out or roll up mats can be used as temporary gym mats when you don't have a dedicated gym space in your garage.

Where can I find carpet topped gym mats?

At Greatmats, we offer many roll up mats with a foam base attached to a carpet top layer, as well as roll out mats with a vinyl top layer over the foam base. Carpet-top roll up mats are best for gymnastics and cheerleading tumbling runways. Vinyl-top roll out mats work better for martial arts and wrestling.
