Rubber Floor Tiles
Rubber tiles offer the perfect solution for both residential and commercial gyms. Because they’re easy to install, you can DIY your home gym floor in a matter of hours. Most rubber tiles are safe to use indoors and out and can be loose-laid, which saves you from applying adhesive during installation.
Rubber floor tiles come in a range of thicknesses, making them perfect for everything from floor work to Olympic lifting. Whether you plan to drop heavy weights or install some exercise equipment, rubber tiles can do it all. This makes them an excellent choice for commercial gyms that require a low-maintenance floor that can handle various applications.
Rubber Floor Rolls
Rubber rolls are a great all-around product for both home and commercial gyms. With various popular thicknesses, rubber gym floor rolls are designed to handle anything. A rubber roll provides a virtually seamless, easy-to-clean surface that is slip-resistant, even when wet.
Because rubber rolls can be custom cut, you can customize the roll to fit your space. Installation is as simple as rolling out the floor and adhering it with double-sided tape or glue for extra stability if desired.
Gym mats provide extra protection and impact absorption to your floor exactly where you need it. Want a space for Olympic lifting that can handle heavy weights dropping? A durable rubber mat is perfect for you. Just need something to put under your cardio machine to protect the floor? A rubber mat can do that too.
While they’re heavy enough not to shift around during exercise, you’ll still be able to move and reposition your mats if you ever find it necessary. They’re one of the most versatile gym flooring options on the market. Best of all, rubber mats are just as slip-resistant and easy to clean as other rubber floors.
Interlocking Foam Tiles
Foam tiles are the perfect flooring for people starting a new home gym. It’s easy to install, supports your joints during workouts, and provides a comfortable surface for floor work. Plus, it’s cheaper than rubber flooring, so if you’re not ready to invest a lot into your home gym just yet, this is a great option.
Foam is resistant to water, mold, and mildew growth. However, it’s not as durable as rubber. You can crush or puncture it if you’re not careful. Avoid dropping heavy weights on the floor, and keep sharp objects (like high heels and pet claws) away from the foam.
If you plan for sled pulls, plyometrics, or any workouts with a lot of lateral movement, you need gym turf. This tough artificial turf can withstand heavy traffic. It won’t easily be crushed, matted, or abraded.
Turf allows you to do floor exercises, but it’s still durable enough to handle high-impact exercises, CrossFit, and more. Some gym turf can also be used outdoors to give you more space for your routine.
Martial Arts Mats
Our martial arts mats are constructed with high-density foam that protects your joints when practicing MMA, Judo, Jiu-Jitsu, and more.
These mats are shock absorbent and resist moisture, mold, and mildew. This makes them easy to clean and sanitize. Martial arts mats are typically available as foam tile flooring or as vinyl-encased mats, so you have some options.
Whether you’re just starting with the basics or working on advanced skills, it’s essential to get a gymnastics mat that can help you progress. Our gymnastics mats offer safety, durability, and fun while you practice this high-impact sport.
Gymnastics mats vary in thickness and shock absorption levels, so there are options for every skill level. We offer everything from folding mats and tumbling mats to roll-out cheer mats. All of our mats are safe, free of hazardous chemicals, and extremely easy to clean.
