Gym, School and Sports Rubber & Foam Mats
Versatile Sports MatsConsider investing in athletic mats for the following applications:
- Weight lifting
- Yoga studio
- Circuit training
We don't just stock thick exercise mats, though. We have everything else needed to equip a gymnasium, including covers, runners, athletic wall mats, athletic wall padding, pole pads, and other accessories.
We have products that can be used for both indoors and outdoors installation. Our products will be suitable as DIY projects, in order to save money and time. We've outlined a few of our popular athletic mats below.
Weightlifting Athletic Rubber FlooringMost weightlifting facilities use this because of its strength, durability, and excellent performance. It is strong enough to withstand the significant weight of equipment, and it helps to reduce the noise of free weights and machines clanging.
It can insulate against cold subfloors. Additionally, it will protect the subfloor from damage from dropped weights.
Our athletic mats have three different forms.
- Rolls are an economical rubberized option, especially for a larger space. They have fewer seams, and the recycled material used will last for decades. They are heavy, though, so make sure to have multiple people for installation.
- Straight edge matting will add extra protection and is durable. They're much thicker, so they are capable of absorbing more shock in order to avoid damage to the subfloor. They often add protection to high traffic areas, like the spaces underneath equipment. They're very heavy, so they don’t shift.
- Interlocking is the most versatile. Choose from a variety of thicknesses and sizes, depending on how they’ll be used. People often choose these for small scale projects, as they are easy to transport and install in smaller spaces. Since these are conveniently sized squares or rectangles, they're much lighter than the others.
Interlocked units don't require adhesive, so dry lay them by pushing the seams together. With pin connectors, they have a secure, tight fit that won't separate during use.
Martial Arts MatsGreatmats is one of the top martial arts matting suppliers in the United States, offering products that have been specifically designed to meet whatever needs are present.
Almost all of these feature variable densities, hardnesses, thicknesses, textures, foam types, and sizes. Thanks to this variety, they are suited for various styles of working out.
- For a striking art, such as karate, taekwondo, kung fu, boxing, or kickboxing, look at our line of athletic mats that are slightly thinner and firmer.
- For styles involving work on the ground, such as grappling, jiu jitsu, BJJ, and wrestling mats, our ground sports mats feature surfaces that won't burn the skin.
- For throwing arts, we have plenty to absorb impact, making for safer landings. Some offer ASTM critical fall height ratings.
For larger professional facilities, our 1x1 meter is a practical solution. Or our 2x2 foot is especially manageable.
We only have sport floor mats that are of the highest quality, and we're proud to stand behind our selections. Ours are used in pro and amateur martial art tournament circuits across the country.
They're also present in gymnasiums of world champions, such as BJJ legends Rodrigo 'Comprido' Medeiros and Rafael Ellwanger, as well as karate legend Fumio Demura.
Sports Floor MatsFor indoor sports court flooring, we have many practical options, including a few that can be removed in the future if portability is needed.
If creating indoors basketball floors, our modular sports tiles will be a great choice. These all have raised plastic bases and can be installed on any flat surface. Certain models have a woodgrain pattern. Others feature smooth plastic surfaces.
Ours will snap together, so they are a popular option for outdoor or backyard basketball courts. These have a perforated design, so rainwater flows right through, rather than pooling on top.
Thanks to this design, the non-slip surface stays relatively dry and safe, even after a heavy rain. Because they are perforated, air can flow through to speed drying. This helps to prevent the growth of mold, mildew, and bacteria.Consider our rubberized backing vinyl. This simulates a genuine woodgrain court. Paint lines onto this if desired. Both ergonomic and quiet underfoot, this is a smart choice for courts that will be used for practices and games.
Our tennis court tiles provide warmth and an optimum play surface. They are designed specifically for outdoor use. These have a raised base to maximize drainage.
These can withstand the demands of outdoor use, including the damaging effects of the sun, as well as extreme weather and temperature changes. Certain units will have a ramped border option that will ensure a smooth transition. Highly durable, these are built to last.
Our cheerleading mattings are available with either a carpet or a vinyl top, and they are available in roll out and fold-up designs.
These athletic mats are found in practicing and competition sizes. They can be transported and installed by a single person, and they fold up or roll up for convenient storage when not in use. Because these are large, though, they have fewer connectors and seams are virtually eliminated.
Our huge selection of gymnastic matting means that we'll certainly have the ideal product for the job. Many of our athletic mats can be laid out to use with tumbling, stretching, and landings.
Athletic mats to be used with plyometric exercises need to be able to support an athlete jumping, along with many changes of direction. Ours prevent excessive fatigue on an athlete's bones and joints. Additionally, they have outstanding traction.
With our wide catalog of dancer floors, finding options that are workable for permanent and temporary installations is a piece of cake. Additionally, we stock a number of different dance subfloors that contribute comfort, safety, and professionalism to any location.
We have selections that can accommodate every dance stage or studio.
For an indoor soccer competition field, our padded turf tiling and blue gym athletic turf have durability and slip resistance.
This synthetic sports turf is manufactured specifically for athletic flooring and is fusion bonded to a no-slip base. This helps to hold it in place during competitions and practices. It's easy to clean and is low maintenance, saving time and money.
Aerobics and Circuits
Our exercise mat has forgiving surfaces suitable for both cardio and aerobic training. These allow for exercise longer without excessive wear and tear on the body. These will be helping with safety and comfort during each and every workout.
We have a variety that are suitable for high intensity aerobics and Jazzercise classes. These rubber sports flooring rolls are firm and durable, yet are also forgiving, so they're long lasting even when used for intense workouts.
Ours have superior shock absorption. The vinyls are bonded to a rubber base, giving it superior durability and sound dampening properties. This is highly desirable in busy commercial gyms and facilities.
For professional and home studios, our yoga mats create an ideal consistency that relieves pressure from joints and bones.
The Z athletic mat is set up for smaller studios or home use, thanks to the convenient size. For pro studios with large coverage areas, our rolled options create a professional appearance with minimal seam issues.
A fitness mat typically is rubberized, which is versatile enough that it can be used for multiple activities. From weightlifting to running or doing pushups, it creates excellent rebound to maximize the effectiveness of the workout.
Our low odor materials are popular for indoors use, as athletes can comfortably do pushups or handstands without being overwhelmed by a rubbery smell. For ground based activities, consider ours with smooth tops. These are particularly forgiving on the hands and chest.
To add even more cushion, or for level variation for exercises or workouts, our folding mat will complement our fitness selections.

FAQ Athletic Mats Q&AWhat are the best gymnastics mats?
It depends on the planned use case. Some are available in special shapes, like octagons and wedges, and are engineered to encourage proper movement and positioning for skills. All of ours are created in order to make a safe practice space and to minimize potential injuries.
What size of tumbling sports mats should I get?
These are found in several lengths. A competition layout for cheer can be 42 feet in length. To select smaller portable sports flooring units, pick those that are equipped with hook and loop connector strips on their edges, so they can be connected to create a larger coverage. Put them together on end to make long lanes for tumbling.
What can I use instead of a gymnastics mat?
Look for a sports mat with a bit of cushioning to it. Some for judo have the cushioning that customers are seeking, for example. Otherwise, for extra firmness, firm foam mats with puzzled edging are easy to install and work well.
What is a landing sport mat?
This is a type of sports padding that creates a soft area for athletes to land after doing tricks or flips. It often is foldable, meaning it is easily carried to difference locations in the gymnasium or stored if not in use.
What can I use for a workout mat?
Multiple choices exist. For solid footing, firmer foams in the shape of puzzled pieces work nicely. For extra cushioned home gym mats, vinyl covered thicker foams are an excellent pick.
