4x8 Gymnastics Mat, 4x8 Tumbling Mat, 4x8 Panel Mat
For a school, an athletic studio, and even in homes, finding versatility in the way in which athletic floorings can be used is a key point for customers. At Greatmats, our 4x8 gymnastics mat will yield exactly the versatility needed for a variety of activities where padded softness is desired, making these gymnastic mats a great value.
Our cheerleading tumbling mats are ideal for training for cheerleaders and gymnasts, for floor exercises, for wall pads, for martial art classes, for Pilates, and for a variety of other exercises in residential or commercial settings. The 4x8 gymnastics mat will last a long time, as it will stand up to repeated usage during longer practicing sessions.
Blue Gym Mats Fold Up Versatility
One of the top features in our 4x8 tumbling mat is its foldable design. It features four 2-foot wide accordion style panels for easy storage and transportation. With this design, it will create thicker, smaller layouts if more pads in a landing area are required, for example.
It measures 4’ by 8’ if completely unfolded. It consists of four different 4-by-2-foot segments, all of which are connected. Users can fold these segments on top of each other, creating a greater thickness level.
Use this 4x8 gym mat to fulfill a multitude of purposes inside the gymnasium, saving money versus buying individual pieces for each type of skill requirement.
These are manufactured using the highest quality of workmanship and materials, featuring a cross linked PE foam core. This blue gymnastics mat carries a 1-year limited manufacturer's warranty and a material density rating of 2 pounds per cubic foot to ensure longevity.
Our foldable options are hand crafted with extremely durable 18-ounce coated vinyls and double stitched seams. The blue gym mat selections feature a 2” hook and loop fastener strip on every side for a full attachment.
Ours has a 4V designation, which means it features loop and hook fasteners on the four sides. Choose 4V for attaching the 2 gym mats to together on the short or long sides.
V2 will have connectors on the two short sides, which simplifies creating a lengthy runway by connecting them on end.
The edges of these are straight, which makes connecting multiple units a simple process. There is no interlocking loss if connecting them.
Should a size beyond a 4x8 gymnastics mat be required, please contact our customer team, as we offer these in a variety of sizes. Just tell the customer service personnel the expected plan for using them, and we can help by homing in on just the right size. And we even offer free shipping on certain types of orders.
4x8 Gymnastics Mat Use Cases
Softness and shock absorption create an excellent multi-purpose design in the 4x8x2” gymnastics mat for home use. It can be used to cushion an athlete from high impact activities, but it also has the comfort level to be used for floor exercise. We've compiled the 10 smartest reasons to order this model from Greatmats.
1. Martial Arts: If performing disciplines where athletes will be falling to the ground, having a thicker pad on hand is a nice feature. Because these are easier to move around, simply place them exactly where they're needed to deliver the most protection.
2. Wrestlers: If teaching wrestling moves to athletes, having extra cushionings beyond the traditional wrestling matting is a smart idea. These will be important in helping prevent bruises that could leave a wrestler unable to practice adequately for lengthy sessions.
3. Wall Padding: These can be used on a wall by simply screwing the external flange on the long side of the 4x8 gymnastics mat to a firing strip attached to the walls. This is appropriate in school gymnasiums that are used for multiple purposes, as well as for judo studios or wrestling practice rooms to yield protection where an athlete could crash into walls.
4. General Exercise: If the exercising routine involves a lot of jumping, having a comfortable padding available can help athletes avoid stress on their joints, allowing for exercising longer without pain.
5. Gymnasts: Because of the high density and high quality foams we use in the padding in these, there are no worries about the foam inside the vinyl breaking down from repeated use, causing it to flatten and fail. Customers appreciate that these offer a versatile configuration for practicing a number of events, including tumble passes using floor mats.
6. Cheerleaders: Cheerleading teams find these convenient because they are so easily transported and provide impressive impact absorption. Use these as landing areas or to lay out a tumble runway. They provide a nice cushion for practicing jumps, too, allowing the athlete to participate in practices for a longer period of time without causing significant stress on the ankle and knee joints.
7. Tumblers: Even if a child isn't actively involved with teams yet, he or she can practice safely at the house with our kids gym mats for tumblers. These will survive repeated practices and will give youngsters a soft landing place as they’re learning new skills.
8. Play Area: If there are concerns with kids playing rough on hard floorings at the house, these are the perfect solution, as they'll prevent bumps and bruises if kids fall down. These have a puncture resistant outer shell that'll deliver safety and toughness for playing and rough use, making them an excellent selection for play areas.
9. Stage Props: If drama students at school need to fall safely during a fight scene, for example, these cushioned pads will work great. Or use them for a theater group, as they're small enough when collapsed to store almost anywhere, and they're light enough to move wherever they're needed.
10. Easy Transportation: Each weighs 22 pounds, so it can be moved between rooms in a house relatively easily. Additionally, if folded, it can drop down to a size of 4 by 2 feet, so a minimal amount of space in the closet is occupied when it's in storage. Moving these around a gymnast studio or at a cheerleading facility is a piece of cake too.
Tough Blue Gymnastics Mat
The rugged 18-ounce vinyl will be tough enough to stand up to dozens of use cases. It will remain resistant to tears. The vinyls used with this product are 6P compliant for Phthalates and lead-free. This product meets California state law Proposition 65 requirements.
If a tear or any damage on the surfaces appears, flip it to the opposite side. Having reversible professional gymnastics mats for home gym use will be very convenient and will give this a greater value and the longest possible lifespan versus one that is not reversible.
Matting and protective equipment are never 100% effective at eliminating or reducing all injuries. These are not fail safe. Nothing can substitute for proper instructions, spotting, and good common sense in the teaching of gymnasts.
Crashing to the softer flooring on the head or in an out of control position still can result in injuries, regardless of the surface pad style in use.
The surface of the 4x8 gymnastics mat is smooth, which makes it comfortable to use with bare feet.
Ours are available in several thicknesses and colors to match multiple usage requirements. They are available in popular colors and sizes. We are offering these in black and blue gymnastics mat models. These will look great in schools or athletic studios.
However, if another color or thickness of the tumbling mat for home is desired, just call our customer help team to see about the options for ordering.
FAQ 4x8 Gymnastics Mat
How thick should a blue gymnastics mat be?
It depends on the planned functions. Some skills need more thicknesses, which is why our product is so valuable. When it is completely laid flat, it encompasses 32 sq. ft. with a 2 inch mat cushioning. But after it is folded in half, it changes the coverage area to 16 square feet with now 4” of cushioning. After the sections are completely folded upon themselves, this 4x8 gymnastics mat becomes 4x2 and 8” thick. This is versatile and perfect for studios or for residential use where there may not be the budget or space to have numerous different individual models in varying thicknesses for different activities.
How do you clean a 4x8 gymnastics mat?
Easily clean it with hot water and a sponge. However, do not soak it in water, as its material is partially absorbent. Additionally, we sell mats with a zipper so you can clean or change the foam as required.
How much do folding gym mats cost?
The final cost for mat gymnastic products will depend in large part on the type of materials in use in both the core and in the external vinyls. Greatmats takes care to only source our products from trusted manufacturers, ensuring we deliver only those that provide the desired results for years. If looking at folding panel mats, expect to pay between $3 and $10 per square foot of coverage. Thickness of the products will play a key role in the final price as well. With cheap folding gymnastics mats for sale from competing companies, the integrity could fail if placed under stress, leading to tearing and unwanted punctures.
What is the best exercise mat to use?
Blue mats are outstanding for all kinds of exercising sessions, providing a good mix of durability and cushioning. For those who need a firmer surface, such as for yoga or Pilates workouts, our Roll Out 5x10 Ft is a terrific selection. On the other end of the spectrum, a gymnastics crash mat will be extremely thick, yielding maximum cushion in a 4x8 gymnastics mat, such as our 4x8x4 gymnastics mat.
What are the best gymnastics mats to buy?
Think about the use case expected for the blue gymnastics mat. A blue mat may work especially well if it can fold up or roll up, making it easier to store in a closet. These are versatile for easy carrying and storage. In a pro studio, a gymnastics tumbling mat designed for schools, clubs, camps, teams, or individual use may be the better selection. This should have a vinyl covering with double stitching in the carrying handles, so it can be hand carried around the gymnasium.
The mats fits perfectly in my loft. They're thick and easily moveable. Thx, Great Mats!

As a returned customer I would like to share for everyone that the quality, price, and service for the additional two mats that I bought recently (4x8 ft x 2in) Red Gym Mats are amazing. In fact, I placed these mats for my kids to train continuos and ground fighting (self defense) inside my Dojo in my garage.
These mats are really strong for the impact, non slippery, easy to clean, and storage. However, I used to train with Interlocking mats, but the gym mats for me are better choice when you train kids and protect them for injuries.
I recommend 100% these mats and soon I will order another ones. Thanks Greatmats!
Works great!! We have this 4x8 and a 4x10 mat as well. Hook them together with the velcro and enough room to practice gymnastics and mma. The 2'' foam is dense enough to handle someone getting judo flipped onto their back and provides enough cushion to soften the blow.
Excellent product. Using for my kids' gymnastics as well as my team's MMA training.
Nice and thick, solid foam has excellent impact absorption properties.
Have bought one, plan on buying another as the price is excellent as well as free shipping seals the deal.
I like the mats you get from Greatmats. We have a whole floor of these mats. Thanks for great service.
They work great for my aerial silks and aerial hoop classes.
I ordered mat for my husband who stretched daily. Did not install, just has in spare room. He had another mat for 25 years and wore it out. Yours was the only mat that was thick and looked like it would hold. Also really good price. You will see in picture our boxer, Ruby enjoys it too!
I did some searching to find a mat thick enough to allow exercises on a hard floor even with a carpet. I found this mat, read the reviews, looked at the price and decided to purchase one. That has turned out to be one of my best purchases in a long time. The mat is perfect for our basement workout room - large, firm yet contours to our body when we exercise on our sides, sturdy construction, easy to clean, easy to store if needed. No more hip pointers from side exercises. I can go on and on, but all I can say is that you will not go wrong getting this mat. Happy exercising.
We have a single mat, and it's been awesome for home workouts. We use it a lot for rolling and falling. If I decide to get more, I will order from Greatmats again.
Than you so much for this super mat. It more than meets my expectation. An added bonus is there is no plastic/vinyl odor at all. No excuse not to exercise now.
Matts are high quality but very light to move around...love them!
The new mats are here. Time to step up the training.

Thank you for all your help with my order. You made the process so easy. I also wanted to thank you for doing your best to get the mats here in time for my Christmas! They were delivered today a whole day earlier than you said they might get here by!! That is excellent customer service.
Sturdy and very good quality, used for Yoga and physical therapy exercises. Comfortable for overweight husband.
Easy to open, fold and store.
SAN DIEGO, CA
our clients love to use this mat for stretches, body weight training for upper and lower body, Turkish Get up, hands stand, and cogwheel practice. The mat is very solid and decent and is easily foldable. I highly recommend it!!
Buying experience was awesome. Delivery was a problem since the large pallet that the items were shipped on did not fit through our doors or onto our elevator. Items had to be hand-carried down a flight of stairs while the delivery driver watched. There needs to be a way to make delivery of the product to the desired location.
Order placing and receiving the product was very easy. Very high quality product. Would highly recommend.
Great product, great company
Can you print a custom logo on these mats?
What is the best size for folding martial arts mats?
Could this be used under a 4x8' climbing wall? We want to install a 4'high wall for our granddaughter (age 2) and have a good mat underneath. Please advise. Thanks. S
