Do you want the convenience of a gym right in the comfort of your own home? Thanks to the many home gym flooring options available, it's easy to convert an existing space, such as a basement or a garage, into a gym of your very own. Never miss a workout again because you're too tired to drive to the gym or just don't have time to fit a workout in.

At Greatmats, we offer a wide selection of home gym flooring options suitable for use over concrete and carpet. These six home gym flooring ideas will help you to get started in planning your project.

Interlocking Home Gym Mats

The tiles are non-absorbent and lead and latex-free, so they're easy to clean and safe to have in your home, even with kids around.

These tiles are lightweight and portable, and their interlocking design makes installing your floor a breeze. Each tile includes two border pieces, so you can create finished edges for both wall-to-wall and island installations.
