Exercise Flooring Options
Use rubber exercise floors for under weight equipment and cardio workout areas at home and for commercial exercise floor installations. Rubber flooring is available in rolled rubber and interlocking gym floor tiles. Rubber is usually used to protect flooring from heavy equipment and from dropping weights. Rubber is hard like a car tire and is, therefore, not ideal for floor exercises without a personal exercise mat. Choose an individual exercise mat for stretching or yoga.
The happy medium for a room where equipment and aerobic flooring activities will take place is a soft plastic flooring, such as our Staylock PVC tiles, or a plyometric rubber. Rolled rubber flooring tends to be a great option for large areas. It's a more economical solution for wide-open exercise floors, and results in fewer seams than smaller tiles create.
If you're looking for workout flooring that's comfortable and forgiving, then our interlocking exercise floor foam tiles may be the right choice. Foam tiles make for the softest flooring options available in an exercise room installation, and are preferred for cardio, martial arts, and other aerobic activities when shoes are worn. Foam tiles provide cushion and thermal insulation, and they are also incredibly easy to install.
Foam interlocking puzzle tiles for exercise flooring offer a safe, soft, and cushioned workout floor that can be used for aerobics, floor stretches, and cardio workouts. Foam is a popular option for basement flooring also, because the tiles can be installed directly over the concrete and can be easily removed as needed. Foam is waterproof and will not absord any moisture if the tiles get wet.
Generally, foam exercise floors are intended for foot traffic only. However, some specialty foam tiles are designed to withstand athletic shoes or boots. While you can install foam tiles under home exercise equipment, the foam flooring can become indented by heavier equipment. Treadmills or weight benches left in place for long periods of time can cause indentations in the foam tiles.
Exercise floor options are suitable for both home and commercial workout flooring surfaces. Consider the type of workouts you'll be using the floor for when choosing the right product for your gym. Interlocking tiles are ideal for home exercise floors, since they're easy to install and come in a variety of colors, thicknesses, and materials. Interlocking tiles are usually available in a soft, cushioning kids foam floor, as well as in a more durable, firmer, slip-resistant rubber.
Folding Gym Exercise Floors
Vinyl wrapped gym folding exercise floor mats are perfect for floor workouts at home and schools. The most common vinyl covered fitness mats are folding or panel mats. These mats are the perfect solution for exercises that include rolling or falling such as tumbling, gymnastics and wrestling.
The Home Exercise and Play Mat is one of our most popular foam exercise flooring products. It is comfortable for floor exercises, stretching, and sit ups. Lead and latex free with little to no odor, these foam floors are kid safe and perfect for any indoor space and feature a scuff-resistant thatch surface texture.
For commercial foam exercise floors, we recommend our larger 1x1 meter interlocking foam flooring options that will provide a long-lasting and durable exercise room floor type for multipurpose applications. These mats give you the versatility of interlocking tiles with much fewer seams than traditional home puzzle mats.
One of Greatmats' newest workout flooring options is called Home Gym Mats Pebble 10 mm. This interlocking exercise floor tile is made of high density foam and features a durable pebble top surface design. These home exercise flooring mats can be installed underneath exercise equipment and are great for home basement floors. Install the foam tile on any hard flat surface such as tile or concrete. Durable and wear resistant, these interlocking high density foam flooring will last for years in residential exercise floor installations and comes with a 1 year warranty.
Exercise Flooring over Carpeting
For a durable and cushioned floor which can be installed over carpeting, choose one of our Staylock modular tiles. Made of a PVC plastic, they will not slide or separate over carpeting. Staylock modular tiles provide great cushion for aerobics and will hold up well beneath exercise equipment, including free weight benches and racks.
Greatmats' Staylock modular exercise floor tiles feature a bump top or orange peel surface texture in popular colors. This workout flooring option will provide durability and cushion in the form of an easy-to-install tile that will last for years of use and comes with a 5-year warranty. Consider this product in bump top for the best anti-fatigue ergonomic benefits for high intensity cardio and aerobic training. The orange peel surface is popular in home exercise room floors for an upscale look.
For a wood grain look in your exercise room floor, consider our Max Tile raised floor tiles. This durable snap-together exercise floor tile features a commercial grade vinyl tile surface in popular wood and slate designs. Use a 3 mm rubber underlayment with this modular floor tile for exercise flooring for added cushion when installed for commercial athletic applications or on top of concrete floors at home. Max Tile is the best type of vinyl top snap together exercise floor on the market because of its commercial grade vinyl and the durable snap together design. It also comes with a 5-year limited warranty.
Exercise Floors Top 4 Questions
1. What should I look for when buying high quality exercise flooring?
It's important to first determine which type of exercise the mats will be used for. Key areas to consider are hardness, size and expansion possibilities. Craftsmanship also plays a big role, so comparing warranties is a good place to start.
2. Are there exercise specific exercise floor mats?
Absolutely! Although many mats can serve multiple purposes. Size, thickness, surface textures and installation methods can all be customized to fit the needs for specific exercises.
3. What's the best cleaning solution for clean exercise mats?
Most foam, plastic or vinyl exercise mats can be cleaned using common household cleaners. Rubber exercise mats should be cleaned with neutral pH cleaners, avoiding solvent or oil-based cleaners.
4. What size should an exercise mat be?
Again, this depends greatly on the type of exercise. For most personal exercises such as sit up, you'll want a mat large enough to support from your tailbone to your head. For combat sports, you'll need enough room for basic moves. If you are exercising with a partner, take that into consideration as well.
Installation of our exercise floors can be an easy do-it-yourself (DIY) project with interlocking plastic, vinyl, foam and rubber mats that easily connect for a seamless fit. Interlocking exercise flooring tiles do not require any glue or tape and can be installed on any hard, flat surface. Rolls of rubber are recommended to be taped down for home installations and glued down for larger commercial installations. Foam floor mats are not recommended to be installed over carpeting as they may slip.
Cleaning and care of exercise flooring can be accomplished with common floor cleaners. Always use a neutral pH cleaner on rubber flooring materials for a long wear and useful life. They can also simply be swept and vacuumed. Test your vacuum on foam exercise room flooring to prevent damage.
Shipping of exercise flooring for commercial applications is generally via freight delivery due to size and/or weight of the product. Home workout flooring can be shipped via ground service to your door.
