Interlocking rubber gym floor mats, Full color gym flooring mats, Black gym floors
Rubber gym flooring is one of the strongest, most durable gym flooring options available today. Greatmats offers many different types of rubber gym floor mats continue to be a highly popular option for gyms, weight rooms, and other areas that see high traffic and rigorous use.
Most Frequently Asked Questions About Rubber Gym Flooring and Gym Floor Mats
Does rubber gym flooring have a strong smell?
Vulcanized gym rubber flooring can have a strong smell, particularly when used indoors. Non-vulcanized rubber has less of a smell, making it ideal for indoor spaces.
What is the cheapest rubber gym flooring?
Rolled rubber is the most economical flooring option, especially when you're working with a larger space. Regrind and confetti rolled rubber tend to be the most affordable options, especially the versions in which the color flecks are not tightly controlled.
How thick should rubber gym flooring be?
The thickness of your rubber flooring really becomes a concern in areas where heavy objects will be dropped on the floor, such as in an Olympic free weight lifting facility. In those cases, you'll want to install flooring that is a minimum of 3/4 inch thick.
How do you cut rubber gym flooring?
Gym flooring made of rubber can be cut to fit using a sharp utility knife and a straight edge. Make each cut by creating a series of shallow scores. For thicker rubber, place a 2x4 board under the rubber gym floor mats to help open the cuts by using the weight of the rubber. This makes it easier to get through the material.
How To Clean Rubber Gym Floor Mats
- Vacuum with a rotating brush vacuum.
- Use a nylon mop with warm water and a mild neutral pH cleaner for stubborn areas.
- Use Pinesol or Simple Green to help reduce rubber odor.
- Mop thoroughly to prevent residue build up.
- Petroleum-based cleaners or those containing a wax agent should be avoided.
The Benefits of a Rubber Gym Floor
Our gym flooring options are suitable for both home and commercial gyms, as well as fitness facilities for middle schools, high schools, colleges and even professional sports teams.
While most of the products that you'll find here are intended for indoor use, some products can also be installed outdoors.
Top Benefits of Using Rubber Gym Flooring
- Durable flooring can withstand both home and commercial applications, and will last for years
- Versatility - rubber flooring comes in a wide variety of thicknesses, sizes, color choices, and installation types, giving you plenty of options
- Affordability - rubber is one of the most inexpensive types of gym flooring, helping you to come in under budget
- Sound dampening properties make for a more enjoyable workout environment
- Shock absorbing - rubber flooring is a more forgiving surface than a concrete subfloor, and this makes a big difference in your body over the course of a workout
- Environmentally friendly - most gym floor mats are made from recycled rubber, making it an eco-friendly flooring option
At Greatmats, we have many different rubber gym flooring options for you to choose from, including rubber gym mats, rolled rubber flooring, and interlocking rubber tiles for gyms. Here's a more detailed look at why rubber flooring is so popular in gyms, and why you may want to use it in your own facility.
A Rubber gym floor is a highly durable flooring option. It's strong enough to support heavy traffic and exercise equipment, like treadmills and weight training equipment. Its extreme durability makes rubber flooring perfect for multipurpose athletic rooms. You can also buy with confidence, knowing that you are investing in flooring that will last, whether for your home gym or for a commercial gym that will see high traffic.
When it comes to rubber gym floor mats, you'll have countless options to choose from. Rubber is available in various sizes, thicknesses, color choices, and even installation types, so you can find a product that's exactly what you're looking for.
Working within a budget, or trying to save money? Rubber gym floor mats may be the answer, since it's both affordable and a smart economical choice. Easy to install tiles can be a DIY project, but for larger installations, rolled rubber can be even more affordable.
Gyms are inherently loud areas, and weight rooms in particular can be noisy. Rubber gym flooring helps to dampen the sound of gyms, from clanging weights, loud music, or conversation. This flooring choice can transform your gym into a quieter, more enjoyable workout environment.
Most gyms have a concrete subfloor, but concrete is cold and hard, qualities which aren't desirable in your gym. Rubber gym floor mats can create a buffer between the concrete and your athletes, helping to prevent the negative effects of a cold, hard floor while softening the effect on athletes' bones and joints. Rubber is so dense that you may not be able to see or feel a significant difference just by walking on the floor, but as you work out, your body will thank you for choosing the rubber flooring.
Rubber helps to absorb shock, protecting your body from the concrete subfloor, but it also protects your subfloor from the impact of dropped weights. Dropped dumbbells, barbells, and kettlebells could do serious damage to your subfloor if you don't have a rubber floor there to absorb the shock of the impact.
Want to feel great about your flooring choices? Most of our rubber gym flooring is made from recycled rubber. It's an environmentally-friendly and renewable option for your gym flooring. Rubber flooring is usually made from used vehicle tires, so it keeps thousands of pounds of waste rubber out of landfills each year.

Puzzle Rubber Gym Floor Mats
Puzzle-style interlocking rubber tiles prove to be one of the most popular gym flooring options, and with good reasons. Because rubber is naturally a dense, heavy material, rubber tiles are a more manageable option, especially if you plan on transporting and installing the flooring yourself. By using modular tiles, usually measuring 2x2 or 3x3 feet in size, you don't have to deal with heavy, cumbersome rubber rolls.
Rubber gym flooring tiles reduce the amount of wasted product, when compared to larger rubber rolls or mats. If you want to expand your floor in the future, all you have to do is add more tiles on. You can also remove tiles or change the shape of the floor at any time as you make future modifications.
In order to install rubber tiles, you won't need any adhesive, and you won't damage the floor if you decide to add or remove tiles. You can cut the tiles with a sharp utility knife for wall-to-wall installations. Some rubber tiles even come with border strips to create island installations with clean, finished edges.
Because these tiles have a modular design, the weight of the individual rubber gym flooring tiles is reduced. This is a great convenience, since it allows just one or two people to install the tiles. Plus, installation is easy and fast. Just line up the tiles and push them together. The tiles connect together securely and won't separate while in use.
The 2x2 foot rubber tiles weigh between 3 and 22 pounds each; the weight depends on the tiles' thickness and density. Puzzle interlocking rubber tiles are available in thicknesses from 1/4 to 3/4 inches thick. You can choose from all black and color fleck options up to 90 percent color. Additionally, we also offer a 3/4-inch-thick 4x6 foot interlocking rubber gym floor mat.
Since the rubber tiles are smaller, you can easily handle tiles of different thicknesses. Be sure to choose tiles that are thick enough to handle the level of wear and traffic that you expect your gym floor to sustain.
- If your gym floor mat has mostly foot traffic or machines, a thinner rubber floor can suffice.
- Most weight rooms need a thicker floor, especially if weights will be dropped.
Choosing a floor that is thick enough for your gym will offer your subfloor better protection while also preserving the longevity of the gym floor mat, itself.
Rubber Gym Floor Mats
Rubber gym floor mats are a versatile addition to any gym space. They can be used to cover large areas, but are more often used in smaller spaces. Rubber floor mats for gyms are usually more affordable than interlocking tiles of the same size and material, so there's an economical advantage to using mats when possible.
Rubber gym floor mats usually measure 4x6 feet and have straight edges. They're available in a variety of thicknesses, and are highly popular for Olympic lifting areas. When using mats in high impact areas like weight rooms, we recommend that you use mats that are at least 3/4 inch thick.
These mats are dense and quite heavy; a 4x6 foot mat that is 3/4 inches thick will weigh more than 90 pounds. The weight can make installation more difficult, but at the same time it helps to keep the mat from shifting and reduces the need for interlocking edges. Most mats are dry laid in gyms.
Choose from 4x6 rubber floor mats for gyms in 3/8 inch, 1/2 inch, and 3/4 inch thicknesses, depending on the amount of protection that you need. Mats are usually black, but they're also available in a natural color, too. Depending on how the mats are manufactured, some may have more of a rubber smell than others.
Straight edged rubber mats are ideal for small areas that need extra floor protection. You can use these rubber floor mats for gyms to reinforce areas where weights may be dropped. If you need mats to cover a larger area, you can butt the mats up next to each other, but because the mats are straight-edged, they won't lock together.
For a more stable surface, our 4x6 foot by 3/4-inch Sundance Interlocking rubber mats may be the right choice. Because the mats interlock, they're suitable for larger installations. These rubber floor mats for gyms provide insulation against cold and damp conditions, while also helping to buffer noise. They're made from 100 percent recycled rubber, and they're a popular choice for highly durable CrossFit gym floors.
Rolled Rubber Gym Floors
Rolled rubber is one of the most economical forms of gym flooring, and is popular for large installations. It reduces the number of seams that are present in your gym's floor, and it's a popular solution for large coverage areas, such as the rooms found in commercial gyms.
While installation itself is easy, you will need multiple people to handle the rolls, which are both large and heavy. Depending on how the rolls are cut to fit the room, you might end up with more scrap material than you would have if you'd opted for tiles or mats. You can dry lay rolled rubber, but you may also want to tape or glue it down for a more permanent installation.
Greatmats offers rubber rolls in varying sizes and thicknesses, so you're sure to find options suitable for any project. Our smaller rolls measure 4x10 feet and are 1/4 inch thick. They can weigh as little as 60 pounds each, and make a great choice for use underneath gym equipment like treadmills. These smaller rolls can ship directly to your door, a convenient option for homeowners and businesses, alike.
Our larger pre-sized rubber rolls measure 25 or 50 feet long, and are suitable for much larger projects. A 25-foot long 8mm thick roll weighs about 190 pounds, so you'll need multiple people to assist with the installation process. You can also order rubber flooring rolls for gyms in custom lengths for a specific project, so you won't have to worry about cutting the flooring or having leftover material.
In addition to being able to choose different lengths, widths, and thicknesses, rolled rubber also comes in different densities. Plyometric rolled rubber is a low-density option that has a little more cushion than traditional rubber rolls. It's designed specifically for use with plyometric exercises, and is popular for gyms where the workouts include a lot of jumping.
Plyometric rubber gym floor mats are a softer option than standard rolled rubber, and they properly support aerobic floor exercises and repetitive movements. These rolls are available in any length needed to accommodate larger fitness rooms.
Rubber Gym Paver Tiles
An alternative to puzzle style interlocking tiles, rubber gym pavers are a versatile option that can even be used outdoors. The pavers connect together using a number of different interlocking systems. Some pavers feature a lap joint style interlock, while others have a pin mechanism to secure the tiles together.
Interlocking rubber floor tiles are available in 1 inch up to 2.75-inch thicknesses. Choose from black and full color options. Ramped borders are available (sold separately) for some models, too.
CrossFit-Friendly Gym Flooring
Any CrossFit training center needs strong, highly durable gym flooring that can withstand repeated dropping of heavy objects like dumbbells, barbells, or kettlebells. Most gyms use rubber gym flooring, since it helps to absorb shock and is highly durable. Rubber flooring is also slip resistant, and it provides both sound and some thermal insulation.
Rubber flooring has positive effects on athletes, too. The flooring helps to reduce the stresses and impacts that intense workouts have on the body, particularly those impacts sustained during jumping. Rubber flooring is firm yet forgiving, so athletes don't lose output during heavy lifts because of too much cushioning.
Rubber gym mats are a great flooring choice for CrossFit facilities. These mats are highly durable and help to absorb the shock of dropped weights, making them an ideal choice for high-performance facilities that see heavy traffic.
Rubber gym mats help to protect your subfloor from damage when weights are dropped, and the 1/2-inch and thicker mats are particularly good at this. We offer interlocking versions of these thicker mats so you can be certain that the mats won't shift during use, and your subfloor will be adequately protected.
Our smooth surfaced rolled rubber flooring options are an excellent choice for areas where burpees, push-ups, handstands, and other exercises where athletes' skin may come into contact may be performed. You can installed rolled rubber floors in layers to get a thicker floor, if needed. The flooring can help to protect your subfloor from damage in areas where heavy weights are dropped from waist height and above.
Rubber flooring is most commonly black, but there are a number of color flooring options available, too. Black rubber gym flooring is made from recycled rubber, so it's eco-friendly. You'll find many options where the black rubber contains color flecks. These color flecks are made of ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM), which is a synthetic rubber.
If you're shopping for rolled rubber, you can choose from black, natural, color flecked, and confetti options. The confetti style is created with scraps from colored rolls. The scraps are reground into the material, making a random mix of colors that appear throughout the flooring.
Our rubber floor tiles are available in a full range of color percentages, but you'll find that most of the tiles are black.
Rubber mats are usually available just in a black option.
Rubber flooring for gyms is available in a number of different thicknesses, with 3/8 inch being the most popular option. However, 8mm (approximately .32 inch) rubber is also becoming more popular. These options are best for home gym floors and commercial facilities where there isn't concern of heavy weights being dropped. The 8mm thick floor can accommodate heavy static gym equipment, and is a more economical choice than the thicker rubber flooring options.
Free weight areas and high school floors that see heavy use will need a 1/2 inch or 3/4-inch thick material in order to help protect the subfloor. The thicker flooring offers better shock absorption, helping to protect both the weights and the subfloor. The more often and the more weight that is dropped, the thicker your flooring will need to be in order to protect the subfloor.
Rubber gym flooring that is used in weight rooms will sustain more rigorous use than your typical gym flooring. This may shorten your flooring's lifespan. Most rubber flooring designed for gyms is guaranteed for at least 5 years, but the flooring also often has an expected lifespan of more than 10 years. Keep in mind that re-vulcanized rubber will be more durable than non-vulcanized rubber flooring.
Alternatives to Rubber Gym Floors
Greatmats offers a variety of flooring options suitable for use in gyms, so you can choose from dense rubber, soft foam, durable polyvinyl chloride (PVC), and even multi-functional carpet tiles.
Rubber is the heaviest and most durable option, but foam tiles, which are lightweight and forgiving, are a great choice for multipurpose and aerobic floors. PVC also offers excellent cushion, and comes in between rubber and foams in terms of both cushion and durability. Carpet tiles can be used with stationary exercise equipment.
PVC StayLock tiles are a popular alternative to rubber flooring. These versatile tiles offer excellent cushioning, making them suitable for activities like aerobics and weight training. StayLock tiles are waterproof, so they're easy to clean, and are available in both bump top and orange peel designs. They offer the benefits that you'll find in high end ergonomic flooring, but give you plenty of options when it comes to colors and patterns in your gym floor.
PVC floor tiles are highly durable, but they offer the cushion that you want for aerobic activities. Both the raised vinyl tiles and modular PVC floor tiles can be installed over carpeting. Their raised-base design allows moisture to flow underneath the waterproof tiles, facilitating drying and helping to prevent mold and mildew growth.
For a luxurious appearance in a high-performing flooring, consider our modular vinyl-topped snap-together tiles. These tiles are available in a sleek wood grain or stone design. They make for a long-lasting, finished flooring surface.
For home gyms, Pebble Gym Floor Mats provide a lightweight, durable option. These mats are designed to be used under home exercise equipment, and they're easy to install and even move around if needed. These mats are made of a high-density ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) foam, so they can support the weight of heavy equipment including weight benches and elliptical machines. The equipment may leave indentations in the foam. These lead and latex-free mats are both waterproof and easy to clean, so they're ideal for gym environments.
Foam tiles offer a softer surface than rubber flooring, so they're great for home exercise rooms, floor exercises, martial arts, basement floors, and more. Foam tiles are available in thicknesses ranging from 10mm to 1-5/8-inches thick. They're also available in a variety of colors and styles, so you'll have some creative freedom over how your home gym turns out. These tiles are affordable, incredibly easy to install, and can ship via ground service for convenience.
Installation and Care
Most rubber gym flooring can be installed without professional help. Interlocking tiles are particularly easy to install, since they're conveniently sized and require no adhesive. Rolled rubber can be dry laid, but it's recommended that you use a glue or tape down installation when the flooring covers more than 400 square feet, or if it's being installed in a commercial setting. Remember that rolled rubber can be significantly heavy, so it's best to have multiple people on hand to assist with the installation.
Our modular and snap-together plastic floor tiles may need an underlayment when used on concrete floors. This underlayment provides valuable additional cushion for a more comfortable floor.
You can use a utility knife to cut flooring materials of all types to fit. This allows for wall-to-wall installations, but can also allow you to install the flooring around an obstacle, like a poll or support beam.
Cleaning your new gym flooring is easy. Foam gym mats can be cleaned with a common household floor cleaner. Regardless of whether you have foam or rubber flooring, you need to keep the floors clean and free of dirt in order to preserve their lifespan. When working with rubber surfaces, always use a neutral pH floor cleaner.
Most of our floor materials ship via freight delivery. Smaller orders may be able to ship via FedEx or UPS. Ground service deliveries to your door usually save you some money on shipping when compared to freight deliveries. If your product will arrive via freight, you will need to meet the freight truck at the time of the delivery.
