Foam Exercise and Gym Mats

Foam is an ideal material for these mats. Not only is foam comfortable, but it offers excellent shock absorption. These properties can contribute to more comfortable, safer workouts.

Greatmats supplies folding foam mats, roll out matting, interlocking foam mats for large areas and rubber mats for gym. Our products are ideal for homes and pro fitness spaces.

We have a knowledgeable sales team ready to assist with any questions, free samples, and quotes. We offer a large variety of the best exercise mats made from foam, rubber, and plastic.

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

Foam exercise mats are frequently used for activities like gymnastics, martial arts, cheerleading, floor exercises, yoga and pilates. At Greatmats, we stock foam mats ranging from 3/8 to 2-1/2 inches thick for exercise and gym flooring needs.

Extra thick mats for exercise offer more cushion that's suitable for landings or falls. Thin mats are often used for floor-based activities. They make for a low-cost option when compared to thicker mats.

Mats vary in both density and hardness. Some mats maximize cushion or buoyancy, while others create a stable footing and still provide shock absorption, which makes a good yoga mat.

The type of foam used in the mat will affect its properties. Closed-cell EVA foams usually make the most versatile mats. These mats can be used without a protective cover.

Interlocking bulk exercise mats tend to be highly popular for home use because they're comfortable to use, easy to install, and highly affordable. The mats can be installed in just minutes. They're available in a wide range of shapes. Install these mats in almost any size of exercise area.

Interlocking foam mats for exercise floors are most often made of a high density foam. The foam won't absorb moisture. It's durable enough so that no cover is required. Sometimes this mat style is reversible, so if one side becomes worn, just turn the mat over and use the other side.

Our Home Exercise and Play Mats are lightweight, weighing just 1.2 pounds per mat. No adhesive is required, making installation quick and easy. Most of our foam mats come in an assortment of colors. They tend to be less expensive than other types of fitness mats.

Rubber Exercise Mats

Rubber workout mat products are strong and durable. They will last for years in home and commercial areas.

Rubber mats protect floors from heavy exercise equipment and from dropped weights. Home gym rubber matting provides vibration and sound reduction. It's a smart idea in high traffic areas.

Rubber mats are available as 4x10 ft rolls or as large tiles for commercial jobs. These mats create an exceptional buffer between heavy equipment and the subfloor. Interlocking rubber tiles can be dry laid on any hard flat surface.

Those seeking a rubber floor that offers more cushion should check out our plyometric rubber mats. These mats are available in rolls measuring 4x10 feet.

They combine the durability of rubber with the anti-fatigue properties of foam. This creates mats a bit softer than traditional rubber mats. They're ideal for multi-purpose areas with both heavy gym equipment and aerobic activities.

Rubber flooring is available in black, or in black with white or color flecks. It's a long-lasting flooring option, with most of the mats carrying a 5- to 10-year limited warranty.

All of our rubber mats are made in the USA. They're created from recycled rubber, mostly vehicle tire rubber, for an eco-friendly option.

Folding Exercise Mats

Folding exercise mats are more durable and versatile than other foam mat options. The mats are heavier and slightly bulkier than puzzle-style tiles and personal mats. But they're easy to install, remove, and store.

Our folding mats are designed to be highly durable, as they're often used in professional gym settings. The cross-linked polyethylene foam core is wrapped with a vinyl cover to add long-lasting strength.

The sides of the mats are equipped with hook and loop closures that allow for connecting multiple mats together for a larger, unified surface. Some mats have these closures on two sides, while others have them on all four sides for more versatility.

Folding mats usually measure between 1.5 and 2.5 inches thick. Our 1.5-inch thick 4x6 foot mat weighs about 18 pounds. As the size and thickness increases, so does the mat's weight.

Folding mats are frequently used as padded flooring for high impact activities like martial arts, gymnastics, or tumbling. These mats are highly versatile. Use them lying flat as a floor pad, partially folded for multi-level exercises, or upright as wall padding.

Folding Exercise Mats Features

  1. Fast and easy to install or remove and store
  2. Durable foam interiors for excellent shock absorption
  3. Often used for cheerleading, martial arts, gymnastics, and general exercises
  4. Can be used when laid flat, partially folded up, or upright for wall padding

Roll Out Mats are highly portable and are easy to install and store. However, because of their shape, these mats do require more storage space than other folding mat options.

Our roll out mats are available in thicknesses ranging from 1.25 to 2 inches. They measure between 5 and 6 feet wide. They are available in nearly endless length options. The smallest mat, a 5x10 foot mat, weighs 22 pounds, so it's easy to move.

These roll out mats feature a cross-linked polyethylene foam core like the folding mats do. However, the vinyl cover is bonded to the top of the mat, rather than fully surrounding the foam core. This creates a no slip surface.

Roll out mats can be used on a hard, flat surface. They help to soften hard floors like concrete or hardwood. They can also be used over carpet, as the polyethylene foam base grips the carpet well, preventing the mat from slipping.

When using a smaller roll out mat on a hard, smooth surface, take measures to keep the mats from slipping.

  1. Are highly portable
  2. Easy to install and store
  3. Feature a durable foam core with a vinyl cover bonded only to the core's top
  4. Helps to soften hard surfaces
  5. Grips the flooring to prevent slipping

High impact mats provide increased shock absorption. They help to keep athletes safe after falls and significant impacts. They're designed to be used with high impact activities, like Mixed Martial Arts (MMA).

For an economical flooring that's easy to install, consider our high-density ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) tiles with interlocking edges. These mats are ideal for MMA facilities. They lock together tightly. And they can be used to fill any size studio by cutting them to fit.

These mats are available in thicknesses up to 1-5/8 inches. Depending on the thickness of the mat chosen, the critical fall height rating may be as great as 4 feet.

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

For those who need quality protection and safety for athletes inside the home, our 10x10 foot wrestling mats are a perfect choice. This material provides quality similar to the mats used in a high school or college wrestling environment. But they're suitable for home use.

What is the best mat for a home exercise room flooring?

For a home exercise room, look for a floor that is easy to install. Our 2x2 foot EVA Foam Puzzle Mats are our most popular mat products for gym and home use. They pop together in almost no time and can be disassembled and removed in the future if needed.

What is the right thickness for an exercise mat or gym mat?

The appropriate thickness of gym mats to use will depend on the type of exercise being performed.

For floor exercises, use thin mats that measure between 3/8 and 5/8 inch thick. For higher impact activities, pick a thicker mat that offers extra shock absorption and cushion, such as our martial arts mats. These mats range from .78 to 1.5 inches thick and are made of a shock absorbing foam.
