Options for Gymnastics Mats for Home

Whether kids are looking for extra opportunities outside of class time to work on new gymnastics skills or are just getting started in the sport, using gymnastics mats for home can help them stay safer when practicing. As an added benefit for kids who like to play just a bit too rough in a basement rec room or playroom, these pads deliver cushioning at home for almost any kind of activity.

At Greatmats, we offer dozens of gymnastic pads for home that you can put out for temporary use. Pick them up and store them after the practice until the next time you need them. Certainly, you don’t want kids trying crazy stunts at home without adults or coaching available for safety reasons. But these home gymnastics mats are perfect for safe practice time for gymnasts, cheerleaders, wrestlers, martial arts athletes … and the occasional rambunctious kids.

Options for Gymnastics Mats for Home

At Greatmats, you could purchase three primary types of gymnastics mat designs for sale.
  • Interlocking Mats: We offer some thick interlocking mats that have a puzzle-style edge to easily connect them. These mats have a coverage size between 1x1 and 3x3 feet, so they’re easy to handle. They have less padding than other options, so you can use equipment over them, as they yield a sturdy base.
  • Folding Mats: Folding gymnastics mats for kids are popular for these types of workouts, as this padding is thick and safe for making hard landings. It consists of four or five connected panels that can fold on top of each other, meaning you can adjust the thickness when desired by folding them.
  • Roll Out Mats: Roll out mats are perfect tumble mats, as they provide a landing spot after a run-up approach for gymnasts or cheerleaders. The force of the landing can require several feet of space to stop safely, making these long roll out pads safe to use.
