Can you put a home gym on carpet?Yes. With the right product, it can be done without harming the carpeting. In most cases that involves a raised modular gym floor tile.
In some cases workout puzzle mats can be placed atop low pile carpeting - especially for wall-to-wall installations. Even those gym mats that fold or roll up can be placed over carpeting in some circumstances. These make it simple to create temporary spaces for working out.
How thick should home gym rubber flooring be?We recommend thicknesses of at least 3/4 inches for Olympic weightlifting. However, a variety of thickness measurements are available. Be sure to check out our guide on gym flooring thickness.
What is the best flooring for a home gym?It depends on the planned use case, but the top home gym flooring options include:
- Rubber gym flooring tiles or rolls for weight training
- Lightweight, waterproof, and affordable foam for aerobic and floor exercises
- Carpet squares are for commercial usages or basements in houses.
- Turf strips with custom hash markings yield a sharp look in a home fitness area that requires sled work.
- Soft PVC is ideal for aerobic workouts and mid to light weight training.
- Vinyl top sports tiles for home basketball, volleyball, racquetball courts, etc.
Do you need mats for your home gyms?Home gym mats can cushion the body of the athlete. This will reduce the impact on bones and joints from unforgiving concrete surfaces. They yield sound and vibration reduction and thermal buffering, creating an enjoyable fitness area. They also protect the existing subfloor from potential damage. They’re easy to clean after a sweaty session.
What do you put under gym equipment?Rubbery materials are frequently used as resilient surfaces under hefty equipment. They will last for years. They provide superior impact absorption, while protecting subfloors from weights that are dropped. The thicker the rubber the better for protection against dropped weights.

Is Rubber Good for Home Gym Floor Mats?Rubber home gym floors are available in all black, black with color fleck, or full color. They use an ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM) colored material. By using recycled tires, these are environmentally beneficial.
We offer them from manufacturers around the country for fast shipping. Size choices for interlocking rubber mats range from 2x2 feet to up to 3x4 feet and 4x6 feet.
Making a personalized pattern is a simple process. There are several custom color selections. Small order numbers are common, allowing for the mixing of multiple colors at a low overall price.
There's no one-size-fits-all choice. Think about the type of workouts planned for the space before choosing. And many rubber home gym mat purchasers will select a style where a single person easily can perform the installation.
For example, weightlifters will want to protect the subfloor with our rubber floors. They appear in a variety of different thicknesses. They commonly have a size of 4x6 feet, which is perfect for catching dropped weights.
What about Home Gym Foam Mats?If martial arts, aerobics, or gymnastics will be a common workout choice, EVA foams and PE foam present a popular pick. Athletes love the cushioning provided for falls. It yields an impressive level of durability too.
A convenient interlocking EVA product simplifies the installing process. The pieces fit together like a jigsaw puzzle, without the need for adhesive. The individual pieces are small and lightweight, allowing one person to handle installing them. Cutting to fit around a post or against a wall is easy too.
Are There Good Folding or Roll Out Home Gym Flooring Options?Cover large spaces quickly and easily with rollout or folding gym mat products. Rolls will go down quickly. No tape or glue is required for most installations under 400 square ft. When finished, this type of gym flooring for home can be rolled or folded up quickly for storage.
Use them for fitness and stretching. They are high quality and functional. In most cases, they can be done with a DIY install. Rubber rolls are perfect for gymnasiums and weightlifting rooms and are designed for easy installation.
They’re water resistant and will have fewer seams. They appear in various thickness options, including 8 mm and 3/8 inches. Installation may require multiple people.
A gymnastics style of mat is regularly used for folding flooring for home gym installations. It will consist of a foam core wrapped in a vinyl cover for toughness. It may be laid out and folded up repeatedly without a loss of integrity. A roll out cheer or martial art floor will feature a foam base and either a vinyl or carpet top for extra cushion or fall protection.
Many gym floor rolls have a length of 8 to 12 feet and a width of 4 to 5 ft. For extra coverage space, just connect multiple ones to each other - usually with tape.
Folding mats have a convenient hook-and-loop connection system. However, they aren't made to be cut for fitting in odd-shaped areas or small spaces.
Commercial gym flooring rolls are a smart choice too. Activities such as jumping, throwing, tumbling, and falling work nicely with foams. But in weight training rooms, rubber is a better option. It has excellent strength and can go across a large area with minimal seams. It can add increased shock absorption too.
Aerobic Home Gym Flooring IdeasFor home gym flooring over carpet for aerobics, we recommend Staylock Tile products. These work great because they provide cushion and fatigue relief. They are perfect for P90X (Power 90 Extreme).
The pebble top exercise floor mat can withstand the weight of equipment. It is double-sided and reversible, creating a good value. It features a non-slip surface that is a great option for aerobics exercises.

Premium 5/8- and 7/8-inch thick exercising mats are two of our most in-demand products. These yield an excellent value. They're versatile, an ideal solution for kids' playrooms and gyms alike.
These interlocking mats are comfortable and available in bright colors. Many of these exercise tiles offer supreme impact absorption and fall protection, making them excellent for combat sport training. Most are even durable enough to withstand usage while wearing shoes or boots.
When looking for surfaces to be used for wrestling, martial arts, boxing, or a similar activity, count on Greatmats, which offers a large variety.
Some home gym mats feature no-burn tatami surfaces, protecting skin from burns. Others are scuff resistant and can accommodate use with boots or shoes.
For extra cushioning, consider foldable matting models. They can be connected together and/or folded in panels for a truly versatile setup.
Our StayLock modular tile is ideal for basements. This innovative PVC tiling is made of non-absorbent plastic and features an elevated base. The elevation allows air and moisture to freely circulate, reducing mold and mildew buildup. It also allows for a level of flexing to relieve fatigue while still remaining firm.
In damp basements where moisture is a challenge, StayLock works better than vinyl. The tiles are designed to offer a durable, yet cushioned, surface in designer colors.
StayLock flooring is available in either a bump top texture, which will provide fatigue and cushioned relief for aerobic activities, or an orange peel surface that has a smoother look and feel. We also are offering a perforated StayLock for areas of increased moisture.
