Durable interlocking foam exercise and play mats for home, kids and gyms
The Greatmats Sport and Foam Play Mat 3/4 Inch product includes a high quality design made for use in a residence. This tile is of commercial quality, yet it consists of a small size for convenient shipping to homes. Use this for kids and sports training in the house or in a commercial setting.
This durable EVA is reversible and has a very tough top surface that is scuff resistant. This home gym flooring delivers outstanding results for martial arts studios. It is an excellent choice for cushioning for kids playrooms as a durable workout and foam play mat.
Exercise Foam Mat
Versatility is a great feature of our stylish foam play mat tiles. The bright colors look amazing, while the well-constructed EVA (short for ethylene vinyl acetate) provides plenty of durability.
For example, using a jumbo foam play mat Walmart offers will not match the durability and comfort that ours provide for children playing and for exercises in a residence, including aerobics, Pilates, or taekwondo. This is a common use case for a customer.
These floor tiles are offered in three double sided, brightly colored options. Choose from green/brown, red/blue, or black/gray. The reversible models allow for the desired tone to be visible on top. Our customers have created a checkerboard or other designs with the double sides. A customer can let his or her creativity show through with this large foam play mat.
Another common use for these floor play mats is to provide areas for marital arts practice and classes. For an athletic studio where classes are offered, or for a safe practice area outside of class time, the exercise floor mat is a perfect option. It will provide a soft landing space that’s also durable.
Our foam play mat sizes are extremely popular. They’re easy to move into place and install. Each measures 2 by 2 foot with puzzled edges. All colored tiling in our kids play mats feature the exact same puzzle edge designs, which means all of them will fit together tightly.
Each only weighs 2 pounds, thanks to its lightweight ingredients and configuration. A single person can move the soft play mats around and position them for the install.
Line up the tabs on one with the slots on the adjacent unit. Then step on or press on the puzzle edges to pop them into place.
To create a pattern, use the different tones in the exercise tiles, including brighter and neutral colors. Lay them out first to ensure there's enough of every color to yield the desired pattern. Once arranged properly, just pop them together.
Our play mat foam will work as either island or tight to the wall installations. There are multiple examples on our website for helping choose which one of these to use.
Installation of One Piece Foam Play Mat
The island design means the installer will be creating a free standing install in the middle of a room that does not touch the walls. If placing them in multipurpose rooms, the island exercising areas will be clearly differentiated from the remainder of the room. We include border strips with this style for yielding a flat, finished edging.
Full room installs look great, as the pieces will stretch across the entire length and width, touching the walls. However, to create this style, certain of the foam exercise mat selections must be cut to fit properly.
Use a utility knife or a box cutter with these floor mats home selections. Cut against a straight edge guide until penetrating them. A single unit measures about 0.79 inches in thickness. A sharp blade will cut through it successfully after several strokes.
Our foam exercise mats are designed for a dry lay installation. No adhesive is required, either on the back or on the puzzled style edges. Without adhesive, they can be disassembled to return to the original floors. Or use the different shades to change up the patterns of the installations on occasion.
Count on our Greatmats products to outperform those found at big box stores such as Target when you want to uniformly cover large areas. We only offer those that contain the highest build quality, yielding a tremendous value.
Use this gym flooring for home for all kinds of workouts and sports. Our best puzzle exercise mat product will stand up to rough treatment with a material density rating of Shore C 35. Each carries a 1-year manufacturer’s warranty.
Interlocking Exercise Floor Mats
Many of our customers love the versatility they receive with these, which yield a closed cell configuration. This means they offer a flexibility and consistency that resembles rubber. In fact, these are so close in appearance that they’re often referred to as foam rubber tiling. However, EVA contains no rubber. It will absorb shock.
This makes it an extremely desirable option for judo, where a student could fall or be taken down quite often. The shock absorption makes it a safer type for students than a hard subfloor.
Additionally, the construction gives it the durability that makes it so popular. It has a firmness to it that gives students and athletes the sturdy footing they need to make quick and powerful movements. Excessively soft flooring causes students to run the risk of turning an ankle as their feet sink into the material.
As another benefit, it serves as an anti fatigue layout. It's more forgiving on the student’s ankle and knee joints versus other types. This allows a student to avoid muscle fatigue and sore legs. They will be able to practice longer and more efficiently.
Ours feature a lot of versatility. It works with wrestling shoes or bare feet with equal success. Additionally, tennis and boxing shoes will be safely used on the surface, which contains thatched patterns, providing a bit of traction for athletes.
Please contact the knowledgeable customer service team at Greatmats for help with determining how many to order. These calculations can be a little tricky because of the puzzled edge, which can affect coverage area. We can help with figuring out the counts to order for the desired color patterns too.
Please understand the color and shade may vary somewhat within the same order. This is a common occurrence with this model and not a manufacturing defect.
To counteract coloring differences, we’d recommend creating some sort of pattern, such as a checkerboard. With multiple colors in the home gym floor mats, the same colorings won't be adjacent, making the shading issues far less obvious.
They measure 0.79 inches thick. Certain customers will desire a thicker unit, depending on potential use cases. For those interested in another thickness option, contact us for more information. Explain to our personnel how these will be used, and we will be able to make the best recommendation on products.
For example, these work extremely well for impact absorption when practicing jumping kicks. However, for those seeking a critical fall height rating, a much thicker model is required. We offer MMA styles rated for up to 4 foot falls with a thickness measurement almost double these.
FAQ Foam Play Mat Q&A
Why are foam play mats good for babies?
Ours are smartly designed, making them a favorite baby gift for a girl or boy. They are even cushioned enough to use for tummy time. Yet they have just a bit of texture and grip on them, so babies just learning to walk will not slip. For this reason, these also will function nicely as large play mats for toddlers.
Is a foldable foam play mat safe?
Commonly mistaken for rubbery floorings, heavy duty foams are softer and safer. The colorful options found with these give you greater creativity in designing the layouts versus black only selections. Easily convert hard surfaces in the house, such as a basement, attic, or garage, into comfortable and safer sports floorings for youngsters. Some have foldable designs, making them easier to store, and the folding configuration doubles up the padding and will create a thicker landing area for extra cushioning.
Can you use foam mats outside?
We do not recommend using these in anything but a very brief outdoor installation. The foams will expand when exposed to direct sunlight and heat. These do not have an added UV treatment, so this is not sunlight protective flooring.
Can foam mats get wet?
These will not absorb moisture, so they can be used safely in places where there may be occasional spills or sweat from workouts. Wipe clean with a towel, rather than allowing the liquid to sit on the surfaces. Do not use them outdoors where they could be exposed to frequent rain.
How do you clean a baby foam play mat?
Mop them with a standard household cleaner, as long as the cleaner does not contain bleach. They are easy to clean, as basic soap and water will work nicely for the cleaning, keeping the surface of the material safe from germs for babies crawling on their hands and knees. We do not recommend steam cleaning with these interlocking gym mats. The steam may cause them to expand. They are not machine washable either. Test any vacuum for causing discoloration before using it on the full layout.
Shipping of Flooring for Home Gym
This ships in cartons via ground service or freight delivery for larger orders, along with some free shipping options. It ships as UPS Ground, FedEx Ground, or FedEx Freight.
Plan to add more dumbbells + rack next. You don't need a bunch of equipment collecting dust to get the job done.
Great for working out and for martial arts. Easy to clean, too.
Spray and wipe clean! Easy to install. Doesn't absorb any odors.
I love my great mats!...I was looking around for some sort of mat I can do my yoga on with my wife. I needed a decent amount of space so we weren't so close while working out. I already have some Karate mats, but were not suitable for standing positions in yoga. What I like about 'Great Mats' is they offered to send me some samples of 3 different mats that I was interested in.That really helped me in making my decision for which type of mat that would work for me. So I picked out the Home Sport and play mat which is 7/8 of an inch thick. I ordered on a Tuesday and the mats arrived on Friday. Fast service!...Plus it only took me about 20 min to put together, and you can make several unique patterns, so it looks more personalized. We use them in our gym in the basement, so it insulates against the much colder floor and it looks super. They are priced pretty reasonable too. Great company to deal with also, because they keep you updated all the way.
Thank You, Rodney
The experience with Greatmats was easy and painless. The prices are reasonable, there is an online chat feature for questions and the shipping was fast. I ordered the 7/8 inch interlocking foam tiles. Each piece was in perfect condition when I got them. I laid the floor down in my basement over a vinyl floating floor covering concrete. Installing the floor was very easy, and took under an hour. I had a rubber mallet on hand to help lock the pieces together, but most of the time it was not necessary. The pieces each came with two edges to finish off the mat. On other sites I looked at, you have to buy the edge pieces separately, so this was definitely a plus. There is no odor to the tiles after installation, and I worked out the next night. I created a 10 X 16 foot workout area for two people. We do weight lifting, and many different cardio/circuit training programs such as T25, Insanity, and various Jillian Michaels workouts. These mats are sturdy, but provide support for high-impact activities, and importantly do not slide when running and jumping. These tiles are a great product, are perfect for a home gym, and I would highly recommend them!
This is my second order from GreatMats. Comparing cost and quality to other mats or suppliers, this is the best bang for my money. Setting up the floor is very quick and easy. Takes very little time to do so. We can spar and roll around without injury, while providing the ''bounce'' we still need as if you were working out directly on a solid floor. I've fought in some kickboxing rings where it feels ''soft'' which makes you feel as if you were sinking into the floor, slowing your attack--this material allows the ''springing'' action you need while protecting you or your students during falls. I teach my kids and others at home in my basement dojo so safety is very important.
Shipping is delivered as scheduled straight to my door. Colors can be coordinated however you want, allow design to your workout area.
Overall, excellent quality. Very easy to install. Nice 7/8'' pad material. Safe for falls while providing the ''springing'' action for sparring. Delivery is on time as promised. Price is excellent compared to others.
See my basement workout/dojo!
I installed these in my Home GYM, very easy and I like that you can use either the Grey or Black side of these mats. They seem durable yet soft enough for Yoga, P90X and any of my fitness activities. I installed them on new laminate wood flooring, so I put down some anti-slip rug grippers to keep the mats in place since I have them in the middle of the room. So far they have remained secure and I love the mats. Great easy installation, Great product, Great FREE shipping, GreatMats! Photos have been emailed, website would not take them..
HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA
Pleasantly surprised with the quality of the mats! Love them! So easy to install and they stay together well. Love my new workout space.
The kids love walking barefoot on it, and like the bright colors. It was easy to put in & easy clean up when needed.
Oklahoma City, OK
Our daughter has epilepsy and started falling during seizures. We decided to turn her bedroom into a ''soft'' room by removing all of the heavy furniture, mounting her t.v. on the wall, changing her bed, and replacing the carpet with the 7/8 inch foam flooring. I have to say that this floor has saved my daughter from serious injury on numerous occasions. When she falls, her head makes contact with the floor first. This floor has been a saving grace, allowing her to play in her room without constant supervision and without wearing a helmet. She loved it the moment we put it down. The non-slip pattern on it helps with traction, but can be slightly abrasive to the knees of crawling kiddos and makes cleaning and drying a little difficult. But the pros totally outweigh the cons and I have recommended this flooring to others. [The attached pictures show the floor in place at two angles. Not great shots, but you can see the flooring looks like a brown rug. The bed was temporary until her new bed came in and the legs were terrible for the mat causing deep indentations]
These mats are awesome. We installed them only just yesterday so I cannot attest to their life span just yet but I got them for two reasons: for my kids to play on and for my wife and I to do our cardio workouts (Insanity & P90X). I did my first Insanity workout on them this morning (barefoot assuming it would help keep the longevity of the mats) and I was surprised at how well they worked out.
The rep I spoke to both online and over the phone was extremely nice and helpful. He actually recommended a slightly different product because I was installing the mats on top of carpet which they do not reccomend (mats will slide on carpet and may separate at the seams if carpet is too plush). But I did it anyway. I have an older carpet that is more or less of a commercial grade (hard, not plush) and the mat underneath the carpet is too old to worn to provide any spring to it. I did have to add a cheap no-slip carpet mesh under the mats to keep them from moving but it works like a charm. Will return to increase or lower my rating from 4 stars after I see how they hold up over the next few months. Overall, great buy.
Excellent fit between pieces. Easy cutting around room edges.
Awesome product. The quality is top notch and
So easy to install. We love the look and our grandkids
will love the checkered pattern we did with the reversible
tiles. Very happy with this purchase.
I needed a cushioned floor in a small detached garage in order to turn it into an agility training space. Great Mats had the best product at the best price. They worked with me on my larger order when it became clear that a freight truck could not get to my house. It took me less than four hours to put down the floor in a 22 x 44 space.
LOVE - LOVE - Love these mats.
Needed a waterproof solution I could easily remove if the floor became wet. So after sealing the concrete floor with Red Patch - I bought these thick mats in black/grey. I used solid black around the gym equipment, and then created a checkerboard pattern for the rest of the basement. They look great and provide a good base for my soccer playing son.
The mats will indent if something heavy is placed on them - so be careful with high-heels, heavy objects with wheels, or any other sharp, pointy object.
I have been looking for a better solution to creating a softer surface to walk on indoors. Previously I had been using 9 yoga mats but they were always sliding all over the hardwood floors and didn't provide the extra cushioning that these mats do. Having to stop and rearrange the yoga mats every 10 minutes or so certainly discouraged me from walking for extended periods of time every single day.
These mats are very easy to set up and the way the borders are integrated into each tile means you never have to worry about ordering the right number of borders. With the addition of rug mats for underneath, these mats stay in one place without having to rearrange everything multiple times a day.
My only regret is I didn't find out about these great mats years ago.
Customer service is outstanding. I have already recommended this company to several friends.
I ordered these foam tiles for a basement obstacle course and rock wall area measuring 160 square feet. My nine year old and I installed the mat in a checkerboard pattern in 20 minutes. I find the surface durable, warm, and soft to land on. Great product.
We purchased the 7/8 inch reversible mats to use for my daughter's new playroom. The green/brown mats were perfect! They give the appearance of grass with paths in our 'treehouse' theme. Cleanup is easy. My only issue is with the static.
Fits great and looks great. I can do my jumping jacks without any negative after effects on my body. The only negative: it is slippery and I would have preferred it less so.
Golden Valley, MN
Can I put this over hardwood flooring without damaging them? Than you.
Only see the interlocking tiles. For a finished, flat edge, are special edge pieces also available?
Can I install these mats over carpeting?
Can these mats be used for boxing?
Do these tiles make a good surface for yoga workouts?
I primarily do aerobics and kettlebell workouts, and I am fairly positive the Home Sport and Play Mat is the right choice for me. However, my husband also has a bicycle trainer stand that he uses in the winter. Is this mat appropriate for the trainer stand, or is it likely it will dent? I'd like a mat that is a good answer for both of our activities. Thank you.
I want to use these on my lanai outside son my daughter can play with less risk of getting hurt. Are these suitable for outdoors
