When choosing a weight mat, pick from those ranging from 0.25 to 1.5 inches thick. They are also offered in a range of colored options.

If looking for a commercial gym flooring option, we have plenty to pick from.
Choose from nine different colors, or alternate colors to generate an eye catching pattern. Consisting of durable SBR (styrene butadiene rubberized) material, these are good mats for dropping weights safely. One of the major benefits of these is how easily they can be installed. The 2x2 foot pieces are sized so that they are easy to carry, and their interlock design creates a seamless look that won't pull apart. There is no adhesive required for installation, and this tile creates a clean, professional appearance. It's ideal for both pro and residential installations.
Interlocking weight room flooring does not require adhesives. These reduce the amount of waste when cutting to fit spaces for a wall to wall layout, in comparison to installation of a roll.
Larger 3x3 foot segments are helpful when covering larger locales, since these larger tiles have fewer seams.
Rolls are our most economical custom weight room flooring. Starting at just over $1 per square foot, these rolls are perfect for large scale installations. Each roll will come in 4-foot widths and are available in lengths up to 50 feet, so they are a great general purpose material. Add matting on top in areas that may need extra protection.
Ours are available in 20 different color fleck options to customize the appearance of the facility. Choose from 1/4 and 1/2 inch thicknesses to suit the weightlifters’ needs. Additionally, a 10-year warranty allows for a confident investment.
The UltraTile Weight Pads are 1 inch thick and American made. This is available in four premium colorings and has a recycled tire base with a virgin rubberized top designed to be highly durable for years of use. This features easy-to-use dowel rod fastening systems and a pedestal underside, which keeps cables and wires secure and hidden.
Designed to coordinate with leading fitness equipment, these will enhance the look of the facility while providing a suitable workout spot for a weight trainer to work. Offering excellent noise absorption, these rubber gym flooring mats are a frequent choice for any facility that sees high traffic.
Foam Subflooring for WorkoutsFoams can also be a great choice as a popular best weight room flooring selection. They are softer and yield more of a cushion for a comfortable surface that many people prefer.
A foam floor surface offers a number of benefits:
- Cushioned foam floor tiles provide superior comfort
- Shock absorbency that’s suitable for workouts that include jumping
- Lightweight and easier to handle for small, DIY installs

FAQ Weight Room Flooring Q&AWhat are the best floorings for workouts?
Rubberized segments have excellent protection, thanks to their 1” thickness. They often feature an easy pin together installation, yielding a tough workout and training spot. These are slip resistant in wet and dry conditions, making them ideal for safe workout spaces.
Is it safe to put a home gymnasium upstairs?
Yes, as this is a great use for a spare bedroom or attic space that doesn’t see much use otherwise. However, because most spare bedrooms have carpeting, consider adding other types of floorings over the top, which will feel better as the base for exercising, while also dampening noise, which can be a problem with gymnasiums on upper levels of the house.
Can you put weight room floor mats upstairs?
In areas where barbells will intentionally be dropped, a bare minimum of a 3/4'' thickness in weight mats is required to provide proper distribution of shocks. These weightlifting mats offer superior noise and shock absorbing properties, and they are set up to withstand heavy duty impact for years.
Are EVA foams good for gymnasium subfloorings?
It's important to realize that foams won't withstand the same level of abuse as an Olympic weightlifting mat. Because of these qualities, this is more appropriate as a casual and recreational weight room flooring. It is especially popular for prone exercises.
Are cork floorings good for home gym mats for weights?
They can be, but we often recommend FlexeCork Interlocking Cork instead. This is set up as a weightlifting floor made to handle extreme use and abuse. These absorb shocks and consist of cork and recyclable tires. With a non-skid surface, these incorporate the natural insect repellent and antimicrobial properties of corks. Measuring 3’x3’ and 1/2'' thick apiece, these have interlocked edges for quick installs, while being easy to clean. There's no glue required, and they create an aesthetically pleasing design statement.
