Home gym flooring appears in a variety of configurations, giving homeowners multiple choices for finding just the right floor for any budget and situation. The material you choose for your floor will go a long way toward making your home a prime location for you to work out and improve your level of fitness.

Choosing the best floor for your home gym depends in part on the subfloor over which you’ll install the new floor material and where you’ll be creating the home gym.

Basement gym. Many homeowners will choose to create a home gym in a basement area. Placing exercise equipment in a basement is a great way to take advantage of this often underutilized space, but you need the right home gym flooring.

Some basements will have dampness, as moisture seeps through the foundation. A waterproof mat consisting of carpet, foam, or plastic is a good choice here, especially mats that have a raised base. This design encourages airflow under the tile, allowing moisture to evaporate.

Placing rubber over concrete is another popular choice for creating a home gymnasium in a lower level of the home. Rubber doesn’t absorb water, and it gives you cushioning and thermal protection from the cold concrete.

Garage gym. Another popular area for creating a home gymnasium is a garage. With a cement floor often found here, using the same materials as we mentioned for the home gym in a basement will work in the garage too.

If you also will be parking vehicles or power equipment in the garage alongside the workout equipment, select a type of flooring – like PVC plastic or polypropylene – that resists moisture, oil, and solvents. Rubber flooring should not be used where automotive fluids will come in contact with the flooring.

Selecting a type of flooring that doesn’t require adhesives is smart for a garage gym. Interlocking tiles and mats are the preferred choice here, as you can install them for workouts, but you also can take them apart and store them if you need to convert the garage back to a storage area for your vehicle.

Bedroom gym. If you have a spare bedroom that sometimes is used for guests but sits empty the majority of the time, transforming it into a workout space is easy with the right home gym flooring.

We offer multiple products that are appropriate to use over carpet or over wood floors, like you may find in a bedroom. A PVC plastic modular style of floor is a smart choice when you have carpet in this situation, and rubber mats work well over wood floors.

You can install the puzzle style tiles easily by popping the edges together. And when you want to turn the home gym back into a guest bedroom, you can take the tiles apart and store them. Interlocking mats don’t require adhesive at the time of installation, so you can assemble and disassemble them whenever needed.

Gym area in an apartment unit. Those who live in apartments can even create a home gym in a spare bedroom or in an unused space in a living room. The right mat or section of workout floor can safely support the weight of your workout gear. Using flooring also can create a clearly defined workout space, even in a room that has multiple purposes, which is nice for an apartment.

To avoid damaging the apartment floor, you will want to select a thick style of home gym flooring that will absorb any impacts and prevent scrapes or scratches on the original subfloor. A thick style of floor also absorbs noise, which is especially important in an apartment, so the clamor of your workouts doesn’t bother your downstairs neighbors. It is also important that this flooring be installed without the use of adhesives. Most Greatmats home gym flooring options meet that requirement.

Kids gym. If you’d like to create an area in your home for kids to roughhouse and play freely on rainy days, selecting the right home gym flooring is a must. Without the proper materials, kids could injure themselves or suffer painful floor burns.

Inexpensive closed cell foam tiles are perfect for this use case. They’re tough, colorful, and durable, yet they’re soft enough to provide just a bit of cushioning, guarding against falls. To also protect against floor burns, select a product with Greatmats unique tatami surface texture. You even can mount these mats to the walls, providing protection if someone crashes into the wall during a workout or while playing.

Best home gym flooring. One aspect of this flooring that you’ll want to consider is the weight of the materials. If you’re going to be lugging tiles down a flight of stairs to a basement or upstairs to a bedroom, you may want lightweight flooring options.

Additionally, if you will be placing tiles over the top of carpet in the home, understand that some materials could slide around, which will negatively affect your workout experience. Avoid EVA foam tiles or tiles covered with vinyl when installing flooring over carpet.

If you have additional questions or would like some advice for matching a style of home gym flooring to your particular workout area, please contact Greatmats.
