What are the Benefits of Thick Exercise Mats
  1. Comfortable, safe surfaces
  2. Shock absorbing properties that are perfect for workout floor mats
  3. They have specific traction, cushionings, and densities
  4. Intended for repeated use
  5. Easy installation suitable for multiple settings


How to Choose a Large Exercise Mat for Yoga Stretching or General Workouts
  1. Understand what will be performed (higher impact athletics, like gymnastic practices, will require thicker units)
  2. The size of the area being covered
  3. Exercising barefoot or while wearing shoes
  4. Whether coverage expansion is desired in the future
  5. How much traffic they will see

Foam Exercise Flooring Choices

Foam is an ideal material. Not only is it comfortable, but it offers excellent shock absorption, which can contribute to safer workouts.

Greatmats supplies foldable fitness mats, rollout matting, and interlocking pieces for large areas. Our products fit nicely in homes and pro fitness spaces.

We have a knowledgeable sales team ready to assist with questions, free samples, and price quotes. We offer an extensive variety of the best exercise mats for sale.

Our exercise floor mats will accommodate specific athletic activities, including cardio workout reps, weights, aerobics, and more.

Foam exercise mats are frequently employed for gymnastics, martial arts, cheerleading, and Pilates. At Greatmats, we stock items ranging from 3/8 to 2-1/2 inches in thickness for exercise pads.

They offer additional cushion that's suitable for landings or falls. Thin ones often are used for floor-based exercises. They make for a low cost option when compared to thicker designs.

They vary in both density and hardness. Some maximize cushion or buoyancy, while others create a stable footing and still absorb shock, which makes for good yoga mats.

Closed-cell EVA foams provide versatility. They can be used without a protective cover.

Interlocking designs tend to be popular for home use because they're comfortable to use and extremely affordable. They can be installed in just minutes. They're offered in a wide range of shapes. Install them in almost any size of area.

Puzzle exercise mat thick designs are most frequently made of dense foams that won't absorb moisture. They’re durable enough so that no cover is required. Sometimes they are reversible, so if one side becomes worn, just flip over to the other side.

Our Home Exercise and Play Gym Mat offerings are lightweight, weighing just 1.2 pounds each. No adhesive is required, making installations quick and easy. Most come in an assortment of colors. They tend to be less expensive than others.

For the budget conscious, consider our high-density ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) tiles with interlocking edges. They are ideal for MMA facilities. They lock together tightly. And they can be used to fill any sized studio by cutting them to fit.

They help to keep athletes safe after falls and significant impacts. They are available with thicknesses up to 1-5/8 inches. Depending on the thickness chosen, the critical fall height rating may be as great as 4 feet.

Some have undergone egg drop testing, where an egg was dropped onto the surface from heights of greater than 65 feet. The results? The eggs didn't break. Instead, they bounced!

For those who need quality protection and safety for an athlete inside homes, our 10x10 foot wrestling extra large exercise mats are a perfect choice. This material provides quality similar to what’s used in a high school or college wrestling environment. But they're suitable for use in homes.

Rubber Exercise Mats

A rubber equipment mat protects floors from heavy machines and dropped weights. As home gym flooring, it provides vibration and sound reduction for weight or jump rope training. It's a smart idea in busy traffic areas. These products are strong with good durability. They will last for years.

Rubber mats are available as 4x10 ft rolls or as large tiles for commercial jobs. They create an exceptional buffer for heavy equipment, like a treadmill or exercise bike, to guard against damage to the subfloor. They can be dry laid on any hard, flat subfloor.

Those seeking cushioning should check out our plyometric products, which are offered in rolls measuring 4x10 feet. They combine the durability of rubber with the anti-fatigue properties of foams. They’re a bit softer and ideal for multi-purpose areas with both heavy gear and aerobic activities.

They appear in black or in black with white or color flecks. They offer a long-lasting option, with most carrying a 5- to 10-year limited warranty.

They’re made in the USA. They're created from mostly recycled vehicle tires for an eco-friendly option.

Folding and Roll Out Exercise Mats

Folding bulk exercise mats last a long time and are versatile versus other options. They are heavier and slightly bulkier than puzzle-style choices. But installation is easy, as is removal and storage.

We design them to be highly durable, as they're used regularly in professional gymnasium settings. The cross-linked polyethylene center is wrapped with a vinyl cover to add long-lasting strength.

The sides are equipped with hook and loop closures that allow for connecting them together for a larger, unified coverage. Some have these closures on two sides, and others have them on all four sides for added versatility.

They usually will measure out between 1.5 and 2.5 inches. Our 1.5-inch thick 4x6 foot product weighs about 18 pounds. As the sizes and thicknesses increase, so does the weight.

They are frequently used for protecting the lower body joints of the athlete.

Folding Exercise Mat Features
  1. Fast assembly and disassembly
  2. Interiors with durability to protect the body from harsh jolts
  3. Often used for cheerleading, martial arts, gymnastic practice, and general exercise
  4. Can be used when laid flat, partially folded up, or upright for wall padding


Roll Out Mats are highly portable. However, because of their shape, they do require extra storage space.

They are seen in thicknesses ranging from 1.25 to 2 inches. They measure up to 6 feet wide. They are in nearly endless length options. The smallest one, at 5x10 feet, weighs 22 pounds, so it's easy to move.

They feature a cross-linked poly center. And the vinyl covering is bonded to the top, rather than fully surrounding. This creates no slip surfaces.

They can be used on a flat base. They help to soften firm concrete or hardwood. They can also be used over carpet, as the polyethylene base grips the carpet well, preventing slipping.

However, when using a smaller unit on a hard, smooth surface, take measures to keep it from slipping.

Features of Roll Outs
  1. Are highly portable
  2. Easy to install and store
  3. Feature a durable core with vinyl bonded only to the core's top
  4. Helps to soften hard surfaces
  5. Grips numerous subfloor types to prevent slipping

Exercise Mats FAQ and Q&A

What is the best flooring for a workout room?
For exercise room flooring, look for ease of installation. Our 2x2 foot EVA Foam Puzzle Mats are among our top sellers. They pop together in almost no time and can be disassembled and removed in the future if needed.

What should a thick exercise mat measure?
The appropriate thickness to use will depend on what is being performed. For floor exercise, look for measurements between 3/8 and 5/8 inches. For impact protection, pick one that offers extra absorption and cushion that range from 0.78 to 1.5 inches.

Is there a difference between the best exercise mat vs. yoga mat?
For yoga workouts, stability is extremely important. Avoid anything more than 1 inch deep. For general exercising, anything 1 and 3 inches in measurement should work nicely for better cushioning.

What are the best aerobic flooring tiles for workout rooms?
For high impact aerobics, cushioning and absorption are important to protect the knee, ankle, and hip joints. But avoid a spongy product underfoot, because if athletes sink into the material, they’ll run the risk of a stumble or trip. A non-slip surface is helpful too.

Is it OK to work out on carpet?
Carpeting provides traction, but that’s about its only benefit. It’s not the smartest of selections for athletes, as they could end up with skin abrasions from the tough fibers. It often absorbs sweat, creating an odor. Versus carpeting, other thick workout mats materials are far better as for getting into shape in a safe manner.
