Customer Reviews for: Foam Play Mat and Sport 3/4 Inch Super Thick
Mats work well for what I needed them for. I put them behind a bar to make standing behind the bar a little easier on the legs. Work wonderfully for that. Like how the mats fit together and have the extra pieces so there is a straight edge. Also they are easy to clean up spills on.
I highly recommend this product. I created an 8x10 area in our basement to do workout DVDs. It was easy to assemble and is very comfortable for workouts.
These are great, affordable mats for the home user. I looked at several other vendors for puzzle mats for my home gym, but most of them only offered the standard 40" x 40" (1m x 1m) size, which apparently requires freight shipping. The rates for freight shipping were very expensive, especially in comparison to the price for ordering a small batch of mats. Other vendors (including places like Home Depot or Costco) sold 2' x 2' size mats, but they were usually only about 0.5" or .75" thick. From experience, I know that this thickness would not be suitable for the types of workouts I do, as the mats would inevitably shift and pull apart. I was glad to find these mats, as they could be shipped by UPS/FedEx (thus saving me a lot of money on shipping vs. the 1m sized mats), and were the thickness I required. Note: If you plan to do any heavy throws or grappling (Judo or wrestling takedowns) then you should probably get a thicker mat designed for that purpose. But these mats are great for everything else, and are thick enough to support light grappling and plyometric workouts.
Use it as a bjj home mat for rolling, works great! practice take downs and it cushions well enough (can't slam to hard). Buying more as soon as the budget fits. Highly recommend it.
Product arrived quickly and in good condition. It was easy to assemble and mats fit together perfectly. The color appears lighter on line than it actually is, but I was happy about that. I searched for similar products on line and Greatmats beat their competitors in both price and quality. I would use them again.
Mata are great simply to lay down and are very comfortable and add the comfort and support I wanted from a gym floor
They are working out well - thanks

I used the mats to set up a jogging track in my basement. The was very easy to put the mats together. Fantastic product!!!!!!!
These mats make a great floor covering for an exercise room. They interlock nicely and easily cut to size with a razor blade cutter. Thus, I was able to fit them perfectly wall-to-wall.
This product is great! It is exactly as you described in your catalog. My young children and I installed the product very quickly in their playroom. They are having much more fun in their playroom now that they have a soft, colorful floor.
The mats are great- easy to cut and install. The dark brown color I ordered was more like light brown. Would have preferred darker but it is okay.
I bought these to move my workout area from a bedroom into my garage. I was worried about how it would work with me doing P90X, Insanity and various other workouts. No worries, I love them and it is working out just fine. I put an old area rug over the top just for a little extra softness.
Our tiles came quickly! We ordered them for our son's playroom, they are perfect! They clean up nicely and are extremely "squishy" (as my son says). I recommend this product and this company to anyone!
great product, we use it in the basement to cover the concrete floor for p90x workouts.

Excellent product. It was an easy install and great service.
Exactly what I wanted and expected--thank you.
Great product. I completed two full P90X programs and Insanity before wising up and purchasing these mats for my basement. I created a 6 x 10 "plyometrics station" in the middle of my basement home gym. I still do an occassional Insantiy or P90X Plyometrics workout - much better with these mats. There is a noticable difference in how I feel working out on these mats. No question about it. I also did yoga directly on the mats. Installation was easy for me - I put them down right on my basement concrete - no problems. I used a checker board pattern and the area looks great. If they move at all it's only about a half an inch, and only after I go hard. They never feel unstable. They are a little slippery with hard-rubber shoes or barefoot (yoga), but this is minor. One of the best purchases for my home gym - hands down.

Easy to walk on, Very comfortable. Need to be careful when water is on them. Very slippery.
These are Great Mats! Installation was quick over our painted concrete basement floor. The mat covered area is used for aerobic activity, dumb bell work, and stretching. The surface has just the right amount of grip to not be slippery and is comfortable, even over concrete. A great value and solution for a home exercise floor. Our heavier equipment is set off to the sides of the mat on a different surface, so as not to compress the foam. The brown is a nice soft color. Highly recommended.
Exactly what I was looking for. Great balance between firmness for stability in lifting and cushion for rolling, stretching, and martial arts ground work. There is a little more friction than a martial arts/judo tatami, so watch up for 'rug' burns. Otherwise, awesome!
