Gym Flooring Rolls and Gym Floor Tiles
As you explore the various flooring options available, you will need to consider whether rolled flooring or floor tiles are best for your project.
Rolled flooring, such as rubber gym floor rolls, is a great way to cover large spaces with minimal seams. Rubber gym floor rolls are often the most economical choice for large projects. Keep in mind, though, that flooring rolls, especially rubber flooring rolls, can be very heavy and will require multiple people for installation.
Gym floor tiles are a more manageable size and weight, and can often be lifted by one person. Tiles are preferred for smaller projects and home projects, since installation is simple and can be done without calling in a professional. Tiles are available with different connecting designs, though many interlocking tiles feature edges that resemble puzzle pieces, allowing for an easy and secure interlocking connection. Many tiles can be cut to fit installations with a sharp utility knife. They tend to be more expensive than rolled flooring, but can also result in less wasted material for smaller projects.
Wood Grain Gym Floors
If you are looking for the classic, eye-catching appearance of a wooden gym floor without the expense and maintenance associated with traditional hardwood, our modular wood grain gym flooring is a great option. Our MaxTile Raised Floor Tile is available in six beautiful wood grain patterns that look just like the real thing. These tiles feature a durable commercial grade vinyl top and a raised bottom that allows air to flow underneath the tiles. When used for sports or court flooring, it is best to place these tiles over a rubber underlayment.
Our TileFlex Floor Tile is another waterproof wood grain option with a vinyl surface that never needs refinishing. These tiles are available in 10 different finishes, and come with a 10-year limited warranty. The tiles can be installed quickly and easily, and there are no special tools required.

Another softer wood grain gym flooring option is the Aerobic Flooring Pro Tile. This tile is made of foam, yet offers the correct density for aerobics. It's non absorbent and easy to clean, and is durable enough for use with athletic footwear. These interlocking tiles can be dry laid for a fast and easy installation, and you can even pull the tiles up again if you need to move them in the future.

Rubber Gym Floors
Rubber is a preferred surface for gyms, since it offers some shock absorption and excellent durability. Depending on their thickness, rubber gym floors can help to protect your subfloor from dropped weights, and is strong enough to endure the weight of heavy exercise equipment. Rubber provides both sound and thermal insulation, making for a more enjoyable workout environment.
Rubber gym floors can come in many different forms, from rolled rubber to straight or interlocking tiles and mats. Rubber gym floor rolls are ideal for large areas, since they result in fewer seams and are less expensive than rubber tiles. Tiles, however, are easier to manage as they are smaller and lighter weight.
Foam Gym Floors
Foam is a softer, more cushioned surface than rubber, though some foam options are not intended for use underneath heavy gym equipment. Foam does provide an ideal surface for aerobics, repetitive exercises, high impact exercises, or floor exercises.
Our Pebble Top Foam Gym Floor Tile is one of the best foam gym flooring options available anywhere. These 2x2 foot square interlocking tiles are ideal for home gyms and weight room flooring. They are made of super high density and durable EVA foam that is designed to withstand the weight of exercise equipment. Pebble top tiles are also waterproof and double sided for a longer life.
