Personal Workout PadsFor those seeking a style of workout mat to use at the house or to carry to the gymnasium, we have plenty of options designed for portability. Whenever the shock athletic gym flooring is too hard to be comfortable, we have items that can be unrolled quickly over what is already there. Once the session is finished, reroll it and store it until the next use.
Many will be easy to clean, thanks to their anti-microbial properties. Such outdoor workout mats will be usable either indoors or outdoors. This style of fitness mat is waterproof and won’t absorb sweat, meaning it won’t carry odor, making it ideal in a water aerobics class or for puppy or goat yoga.
Rubberized Workout MatOurs will consist of recycled tires and will deliver impressive durability, potentially lasting at least 20 years. In commercial gyms, where heavy duty foot traffic is common, this is a smart idea.Rubber’s density makes it great for supporting hefty equipment, like an exercise bike or treadmill, while protecting the subfloor from damage. This is a must have when lifting weights too.
We offer these in a few design options, which will meet multiple use cases. For those who need a larger coverage area, these have edges that press together tightly without the need for adhesive. The edges almost look like jigsaw puzzle pieces, which simplifies installation.
These are hefty, but they provide a simple means of providing protection to a particular portion of the floor. Because these are heavy, just place them side by side without glue, and they won’t slip out of the way. This is a convenient option for those who may want to frequently slide them to new places in the room as the needs change.
Advantages of Rubber Workout Floor Mats
- With their extreme durability, these work well in higher traffic areas
- Provides sound absorption and buffering against cold concrete floors
- Eco-friendly and manufactured from tires that have been recycled
Foldable Memory Foam Mats for HomeA folding workout mat is another nice option. These include a vinyl cover that provides a high level of durability. These will work either folded, to yield more cushioning, or unfolded, to cover additional space. If unfolded, these have coverage areas ranging from 4’x6’ and 6’x12’. Ours include hook and loop strips on the sides that allow for huge, connected layouts.
Keep them folded up or consider stacking these for higher impact activities. With vinyls used as shells, they are a popular option for wrestling, grappling, and martial art training.
Pluses of Folding Mattings

- The core has excellent shock absorption and cushion
- Durable vinyl wrap ensures they will last
- Choose from unfolded or stacked layouts
- Connect them for a larger space
Roll Out Extra Large Exercise MatA rolled workout mat will increase the versatility of these spaces. This can be placed directly on top of most surfaces, making it a best exercise mat for carpet. It's a great solution for practices when a little more protection is required than with what is now in place.
This best exercise mat for hardwood floors is usually between 4 and 6 feet in extra wide widths. They are found in various lengths, with 10’ being a frequent length. These range from 1 1/4 to 2 inches thick. Afterward, simply roll them up again and store them.
Carpet topped rolls are often used for cheerleading, stunting, and gymnastics.

These can be used as temporary or permanent floorings. Easily pull them up and remove them, and then reinstall them later. They're convenient to move. They're also highly affordable and are a practical solution for both residential and commercial use.
These connect together just like a puzzle, and they fit together securely. For a tight to the wall installation, cut them to fit or add border strips for a clean island install. Because installation requires no adhesive, this works as a DIY project. And to relocate them in the future, pull them up and move them.

Thickness of Athletic Gym MatsWe have these in a variety of thickness measurements. Thicker ones will yield a greater level of cushioning than thin units, although the material used in the pads also plays an important role in the cushioning properties that are found.
It may be so hefty that it’s difficult for one person to move alone. So for those who will be moving them often, consider a thinner type to make the process easier.
Foams typically are sold in thicknesses from 1/2'' to 2”. Certain types require a firmness to deliver the proper support, such as for exercises where the athlete is sitting on the ground. These will have a firm density and will remain thin.
Thicker styles may use a soft, spongy consistency, which gives them a lot of softness. This is made to help with safety during falls for those practicing wrestling or martial arts. Cheerleaders and gymnasts can use these too.
Benefits of Workout Puzzle Mats
- Superb cushioned layout
- Lightweight and easily portable, these can go anywhere
- Rolled up design, so it’s easy to hide away after use
- Use these whether participating in an outdoors training session or heading to the gymnasium
- Anti-microbial with waterproof materials
Sports and Outdoors Exercise Mats Color OptionsOur customers appreciate the dozens of choices we offer in our product catalog. In addition to the different materials we use, ours are found in several colorings.
For those running a studio, consider having colors that match the team. At the house, matching the decor can be a nice configuration.
Black is the most common color, although we at Greatmats offer certain rubberized floorings with color flecks embedded in them. Foams and those with vinyl coverings will have numerous other colors available, providing something that looks great and provides a strong value.
FAQ Workout Mat Q&AWhat is the top workout mat?
If wondering, what is the smartest pick for a layout in working out rooms that have a lot of walking traffic, rubber is a perfect solution. They deliver excellent strength for studios and other professional settings.
What is the best exercise mat for HIIT thickness?
Dense rubberized models will withstand heavy equipment and dropped weights without being indented during high intensity interval training (HIIT). Often times, this matting will be limited to thicknesses between 3/4 and 1/4 inches, making them 19mm to 6mm thick exercise mats. These have a high density.
Is there a difference between a workout mat for yoga versus matting for exercisers?
Yes. For yoga, the materials in use are thinner with a nice level of firmness for body support. For exercising, look for extra thick measurements and varying softness levels, depending on the workouts that will be planned.
Do you need matting to work out?
Not necessarily, but we wouldn’t recommend it. For floor exercises while prone or to jump rope, to project joints in the lower body, the cushions in our mattings are extremely beneficial.
How much is a workout mat?
At Greatmats, we have a multitude of price points available in exercising mattings. Some is available for as little as $1 per square foot, such as rolls or a simple foam. For thicker cushion, $3 to $7 per sq ft is possible.
