Customer Reviews for: Home Sport and Play Mat 3/4 Inch
The ordering process was simple and straight forward. The product arrived within a couple of days - faster than expected. The mats went together very easily to create and 8' X 8' workout surface. We saw the choice of the thinner mat (5/8" pad with a non-slip finish) but since we were going to install it over a basement floor, we wanted maximum cushioning and went with the 7/8" thick pad. The cushioning is great. The only issue is that the surface can be somewhat slick. We had to purchase a thin non-slip carpet pad from a local hardware store to stop the pad from sliding around when more than one person was working out at the same time. That worked great to keep the mat from sliding on the floor. Depending on the exercise routine, we may also use a thin yoga mat on top of the mats to eliminate slipping. But it was our choice to go with cushioning over slip resistance. Too bad they did not both come in the same product.
Love my new mats. They are much nicer than working out on the cold concrete basement floor. Daughter loves them too when she does her Zumba and Insanity workouts. Good, sturdy interlocking pieces and I like the idea that I can piece them together in the shape/size I need.
These mats work great in my unfinished basement to create a comfortable aerobic workout area. They are easy to put together, light weight, and don't slide around. Plus provide excellent cushioning for high impact work outs like Insanity and P90X plyometrics. I would recommend them highly and the customer service was great as well. These mats came recommended a GREATMATS.COM employee.
The mats are very well made and durable. The thicker style allows them to stay together better than thinner interlocking ones we have had in the past. Great for cardio and Insanity workouts.
I am completely satisfied with the quality of the product and the speed of its delivery. No complaints.
Greatmats had the best prices I could find on the internet plus free shipping. Received mats in three days. I do not think you can beat the quality either. If I need more mats I will shop Greatmats again.
I'm gonna buy more!
Excellent product...used it for a massive playroom project in our basement. The mats are very durable and are easy to clean...great interlocking system. Peace of mind knowing if you have kids of all age ranges, these things can absorb minor impacts such jumping, cart wheels and tumbles of all sorts...seriously, would recommend for anyone who would like to convert any hard surface into a safe sports or play zone.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Greatmats. I was looking for mats to replace the section of carpeting in my basement. In looking at all types of Plyo mats, GreatMats was the best in quality and in price. Their customer service quickly got me a quote and helped me place an order. Installation was simple and they are exactly what I was hoping they would be. Working out on these make it so much easier on the joints!!!
I use these mats for Insanity and P90X and they work great! The cushioning on them is enough to use for yoga, weights, core work, multi-purpose. They slide around on concrete when you run around but that is to be expected and it isn't enough that you can't workout on them. My shoes slide when holding a stretch but nothing extreme. I would recommend for an in home workout area, my joints feel so much better than using concrete.

Very heavy and thick matting. Perfect matting for use with a new litter of puppies. Very high quality.
Awesome product! The 7/8inch thickness is very comfortable to workout on, and installation was literally a SNAP. Our trainer commented how much he liked them, especially that there was no odor of rubber (since they are not rubber!) like some others he had experienced (and he and his clients hated and could not get rid of). We are totally pleased with the purchase and highly recommend them!

Purchased for wife to do her P90x and she said it has made the workout much more enjoyable as her knees don't hurt anymore.
This mat was perfect for my in home gym. Easy to put together. Service was very good. Thanks
The mats are very nice and durable. We have them located under an activity gym in our clinic and they are great for safety and traction for the children.
The mats have a good quality and easy to clean. So far, they have met my expectations.
These worked out fantastic for P90X and Insanity. You don't have to worry about what shoes you're wearing when you have this amount of support from the mats. Easy to put together and perfect for the job. The only downside is it will slide on you during some workouts (we have hardwoods). We found that the antislip sheets you put under rugs have worked very well to keep them sturdy. Strongly recomment these mats and am very happy with the purchase.
Dear Greatmats People ... The quality and excellence of the 7/8 inch thick product was only exceeded by the delightful customer service and attention to detail mindset of your people. The product is superb and ideal for my in-home concrete floor, basement exercise area. I'd highly recommended this stronger, thicker and more firm and solid mat option for anyone needing a better solution for an intensified set of hour-long exercise routines. I will definitely research other applications and options for our use throughout our facility. Thanks again for having good, caring people ready to assist us. Best regards, Fritz Bader
This flooring is wonderful!! I started having trouble with my knees and we put this down over our basement floor. It went together quick and easy. I immediately felt the difference. You can feel it absorbing the shock. I should have done this years ago.
We use this mat for a special application in our motorhome. We travel everywhere with our dog, a large golden retriever who is now 11 years old. He is very anxious when we are moving and likes to stay close under foot in the front of our coach which has tile flooring in that area. He slips and slides on the tile, which makes him even more nervous. We ordered the mat and cut it to fit so it covers the tiled area. Now Bailey is comfortable enough to lay down and even snooze a bit when we are rolling. When we are parked at a campground, the mat is easily removed and stowed away. Because it was cut to fit the contour of the dashboard and around the co-pilot's seat, it stays put without any kind of adhesive. It turned out to be a nice solution for us.
