Aside from selecting the equipment and weight systems that will go in a gym, consideration must also be given to the gym floor tiles that will be installed. Having an adequate flooring system in a gym will provide safety features for the athlete, protection to the subfloor, and protection for the exercise and fitness equipment. Greatmats offers some of the best gym friendly flooring systems that will look and perform well in your home or commercial space for years to come.

Max Raised Floor Tile

Max Raised Floor Tile

Greatmats’ raised modular flooring tile is one of the best gym floor tiles on the market. This floating tile provides excellent comfort and support and is a suitable option for areas that are susceptible to moisture - like a basement. It is mold, mildew, and bacteria resistant and allows for airflow underneath because of its raised design. There is also an air pocket under the surface that adds some thermal buffering - which is a great feature if the product will be laid in a pole shed or basement gym setting.

The flooring’s vinyl laminate surface provides protection from potential dents, scuffs, and divots. The high quality, durable gym tiles are 1 foot by 1 foot and allow for ease of movement, and feature an attractive and professional finish. This is a great gym flooring system for aerobic activities, such as Zumba or Jazzercise, and also works well under home gym equipment such as stationary bikes or ellipticals.

Gym Floor Workout Fitness Tile

This product is a breeze to keep clean by sweeping or using a gentle vacuum to remove debris, or, you can damp mop it with hot water and a common household, bleach-free floor cleaner.
