Portable folding gym mats connect together with a hook and loop system. Others are interlocking and can be used as a permanent exercise floor solution for basements and other areas. EVA Foam Tiles and some rubber mats connect together using puzzle style edges. Plastic personal exercise floors most often have an active interlocking tab and loop system. We also have roll out and folding mats for individuals that can be used alone. Most roll out varieties can also be connected together using tape.

The thickness required for your mats varies greatly by the type of exercises being done and the type of material being used. The most common thickness for foam exercise mats is between 1/2 and 2 inches, but you can find them as thin a 1/8 inch and as thick as 2-1/2 inches. As for dimensions, that varies greatly as well based on your exercise routine. A martial artist or gymnast will likely require a larger exercise mat system even if practicing alone, than a yogi or yogini.

The type of surface you'll be laying the mat out on may also play a role in how you choose the right personal exercise mat. Concrete and tile usually require more cushion and insulation. Carpet will need a mat or exercise flooring system that won't buckle or shift on top of it and won't damage the carpet. If you're exercising outdoors, you'll want a mat that will hold up against moisture, rocks and sticks and even the sun's UV rays.

The type of mat that you select should be based on the type of training in which you're interested and the application for which you'll be using it. Contact our customer service representatives with any questions you may have. We will help you select the perfect mats for your needs.
