Aerobic X & Plyorobic Athletic Flooring


If you're ready to begin incorporating plyometric exercises in your workout routine, you're going to want to have a cushioned floor available. Plyometrics can be difficult on the joints of people when performed over a hard surface. That's where our 3/8 rubber flooring enters the picture, as it provides a cushioned resilience that absorbs impact to reduce leg injuries. Our thickness is perfect for the running, bounding and jumping exercises that are part of plyometric exercising. In fact, our gym flooring rolls are great for using in any situation where a little extra padding would be nice to have, such as for cheerleading practice, for aerobic studios and for dance studios.


The slight cushioning of the plyometric rubber flooring provides just the right mix of cushion and solid footing to allow for the sudden movements that occur in various types of exercising, including plyometrics.

Plyometric Exercises

The idea of using plyometric exercise has grown in popularity quite a bit in recent years. Plyometrics primarily aim to give athletes more explosive power in their muscles. Because of the tough jumps and sudden movements involved in plyometrics, injuries are a possibility. The cushioned surface in the plyometric mat works well to reduce the chances of these injuries. Some common types of movements that you'll find with plyometrics include the following.

Box Jumping: Front and lateral box jumping, where the athlete repeatedly jumps from the ground onto an elevated surface, such as the top of a box, and back down to the ground, benefits greatly from 3/8 rubber flooring, where the cushioning makes the landing softer and easier on the knee joints and ankles.

Lateral Jumping: Plyometrics athletes repeatedly will jump back and forth over an object a few inches off the ground or over a line on the floor. These jumps may not involve jumping far off the ground, but the repeated landings in a short amount of time can be especially tough on ankles without the padding in rubber gym flooring rolls like we offer.

Squat and Skater Jumping: Side-to-side jumping and lunging represent a key component of plyometric exercises. By making use of the Plyometric Rubber Roll with 3/8 inch thickness, you'll still have a steady footing for pushing off with these types of jumps, along with the cushioning to make landings feel better.

Other Exercising Ideas for Plyometric Flooring

Consider rubber gym flooring rolls for use in a school or athletic gym setting too. The cushioning available with these mats is amazing for keeping students and athletes healthy and able to perform at the top level, both during practices and games. Additionally, by offering a slightly cushioned rubber flooring rolls for gyms, athletes will be able to practice longer without pain and fatigue.

Cheerleading Workouts: If your cheerleading team at school or at the team gym must hold practice on a hard floor, such as a wood gym floor, our rubber gym flooring rolls will give you a much more appropriate flooring material. Cheerleaders are constantly performing jumps, rolls, hand springs and sudden dance moves where a cushioned flooring will yield a less stressful workout and help to avoid injuries.

Heavy Workouts: The 3/8 rubber flooring works great for intense aerobics and advanced plyometrics. By making use of cushioning in the floor during heavy aerobics routines, you'll have a greater ability to work out for longer periods without wearing down.

Picking an Installation Type
Our 3/8 rubber flooring mats are easy to install. Depending on the use case you have in mind, we recommend taping or gluing down the mats to avoid having the flooring slide around on you during use. Gluing the rubber gym flooring rolls works best for permanent areas that have a high level of activity that could cause the mats to slide. Taping works best when the activity will be at an intermediate level, rather than at a high level, or if your workout space is more temporary.

However, when used as an underlayment for dance floors and other athletic floors, you can perform a dry lay installation with no adhesives if you choose. Of course, the advantage to a dry lay installation is that you can roll up the rubber gym flooring rolls when you've completed your activity and return the floor back to the original sub-floor.

Installation works best when placing the mats over a hard and flat surface. Dried concrete and wood offer the most successful sub-flooring options for these mats. If the sub-floor has slight indentations or raised areas, those imperfections will be visible through the plyometric mat material. You may want to try to repair any imperfections before you lay down the mats.

Plyometric Rubber Installation Tips

Before installation, you'll want to clean the flooring completely, removing dirt, grease, or any other foreign materials. We also recommend allowing the sub-floor to dry completely before attempting to install the 3/8 rubber flooring. Moisture on the sub-floor may cause the adhesive to fail prematurely or to not work at all.

We recommend starting rolling all of the mats from one wall of the room and going in the same direction every time. Additionally, make sure the same side of the roll is facing upward as you roll them out, just to minimize the chance of having significant variations in the shading of the mat's black color.

To avoid having to make many cuts, begin by rolling out the 3/8 rubber flooring rolls from the corner of the room that is most square. Then, if other walls aren't quite square, you can make trims and cuts as needed. The rubber material used in our rubber gym flooring rolls is relatively easy to cut with a utility knife and a straight edge.

If the walls in the room are not as square as you'd like them to be, you also have the option of creating an island installation, where you don't butt the material up against the walls. The combined plyometric mat area just floats in the middle of the room.

We do not recommend using duct tape or other strong types of tape to tape down the seams on the top section of the floor. Use of tape on the surface of the rubber flooring may cause a sticky residue to be left on floor that's extremely difficult to clean.

Plyometric Flooring Maintenance Tips

Our plyometric flooring rubber roll is economical and easy to maintain. To take care of the surface, you'll just vacuum the flooring as needed, usually a few times per week, depending on the amount of use the floor receives.

If you would like to have a more thorough cleaning of the 3/8 rubber flooring, you can use a damp mop as needed with a neutral pH cleaner such as Taski Profi. The slightly porous structure of rubber gym flooring rolls requires more drying time after mopping than standard rubber flooring. (This porous design also gives the plyometric mat flooring its bounce back capability with a bit of cushioning.)

Should you ever have some sort of damage or discoloration on the surface of the 3/8 rubber flooring, you have the option of reversing an individual mat.

Plyometric Mat Ordering Options

This highly-shock absorbent plyometric flooring roll measures 3/8 inch in thickness, but we also offer it in a 1/2 inch thickness measurement. If you're unsure which thickness will work best for your particular use cases, just contact our knowledgeable and friendly customer service team to gain the advice you need.

Our five-year manufacturer's limited warranty tells you how confident we are in the unmatched durability of the Plyometric Rubber Roll with 3/8 inch thickness. This floor will stand up to the explosive repetitions performed in rigorous athletic workouts, including plyometrics.

You can count on the quality of our rubber gym flooring rolls too, as they are a Made-in-the-USA product. Each plyometric mat has a thickness tolerance measurement of plus or minus 0.02 inches. By adhering to such strict manufacturing tolerances, our mats will work great for years. Cheaper mats that aren't as well constructed may have multiple areas of thin spots. This can cause the mats to buckle in those areas, leading to a premature failure of the rolls with cracking and tearing.

We also use tight tolerances in the size of the plyometric mat pieces. As a standard measurement, each mat is 4 feet wide, and the widths are created in tolerances of plus or minus 1/4 of an inch. As far as lengths, you can make a custom order of the length measurement of the roll. Contact customer service to learn more about your ordering options.

All of our Plyometric Rubber Roll 3/8 Inch mats are of a great quality and will deliver the cushioning and long life you're seeking at a great price.

Please Note: Cut lengths for rolled rubber products are provided as a courtesy at no additional cost to customers. In come cases, the manufacturer may provide a cut length within two pieces of material. In other cases, the manufacturer may send material that is over or under the specified linear footage. In all cases, the manufacturer is required to supply the overall amount of material per order. It is common for rolled rubber jobs to have butt seams or cut end seams within one roll or run.

Maintenance

Damp mop with neutral pH floor cleaner.

Q & A⌃ Back to top
Ask a question about this product

Product Questions:

can a ball bounce on this?
Good question, yes a basketball could and would bounce on this surface, perhaps not as good as a concrete or wood floor.
Would this work on a low pile carpet? We have some low pile carpet down in our garage (converted to a media room).
This rolled rubber option can be installed over a low pile carpet.
How would this be in a Zumba studio?
This product can be used for some aerobics, it might be a little more grippy than is liked for some twisting moves on the balls of your feet.
Can this be used as a sub floor underneath a glue down engineered hard wood floor? Need it for dance. And does it smell?
We don't have testing for this type of use for a sub flooring dance floor in a glued down environment. We do use this rubber material for sub flooring in a dry lay installation with modular tiles.
Can this product be used as a subfloor for a regular wood floor installation over a concrete slab?
If the wood floor is free floating then yes, if it's a nail down then no. We have less thick rubber underlayment materials that are rated as flooring underlayments.
Could this be installed with a cork floor on top over a concrete slab?
Yes this rubber flooring material can be installed over any hard flat surface. Over wood or cork, we would recommend first laying down a sheet of plastic to protect the surface from any potential staining over time from the rubber material.
Does it smell, or outgas at all?
This type of rubber has a very low smell. All rubber has some level of smell. We have free samples that one can request on our site for review.
I can see that one customer used this rubber roll as a sub-floor for her ballet studio. I was wondering if this rubber roll needs to be covered by wood panels or just covering it with ballet marley would be enough?
This type of rubber roll can be covered with marley vinyl only. No wood in needed.
We have a deck above our offices, and it is very loud when people walk across it. Would putting this on the deck above be a good way to reduce the footstep noise in our offices?
This product is for indoor use only. We have other outdoor rooftop and deck products on that category page on our site. If this is indoor, then this would be a good option to reduce sound.
I have an application for this type of material which requires a wheeled office chair to be used. Will this matting allow an office chair to roll easily with a person sitting in it?
This product is a little too soft for this use type, while the person is sitting.
Under product description says it is in rolls of 4x30ft. The space I need these for is only 20 ft long, could I simply cut of the excess or would that lead to increased deterioration?
These rolls can be cut to any length as needed, please call customer service. To your question, the rubber can be cut to length as needed onsite as well with no product degradation.
I would be putting this rubber matting over a ceramic tile flooring that has 1/4 inch grout lines. Can I still put this directly over that flooring and then my marley on top of that for ballet and contemporary modern dance
Yes the rubber will span those grout lines for the most part.

Thank you so much for your help with the selection and purchase of the flooring for our home gym. The flooring is better than what I had expected, and I had high expectations. It is amazing that we were able to make this room our of part of a large storage area in our basement.

We bought the 3/8 in plyometric mats for our home gym in the basement. It is an awesome product. Just like at professional gyms. We called the salesperson to get a few samples first to make sure it was what we wanted. The samples came quickly and confirmed what we thought. We bought 3 of the four foot wide rolls to cover a 12x26 ft area. They laid out easily and gives us only two seems. Exactly what we were looking for. A mat to lay directly on concrete floor that can handle the weight of treadmill and weight machine yet has some give for aerobic exercise.

Given that it is an online vendor, it would be easy to shop around for best pricing etc. However, due to the excellent customer I received from inquiring to ordering, I did not bother to check anywhere else. Would definitely come back for our future projects.

Great customer service and even received more product then I orderd...great product quality.


Customer Rating:


Everything was perfect. The mats were cut to the size I needed, which really helped when it came time to lay them out, and we only had to trim a few edges to make them square. I laid the rubber under marley for a dance floor, and so far I have no regrets.


Customer Rating:


the customer service from Greatmats was very prompt and informative. the only issue if you call it that was the shipping company called with an eight hour delivery window so had to take the whole day off for the shipment. would be nice if had been a better determination of the time. that said the delivery driver was very friendly and was able to drop the 400 pound package right into the garage. the mat is exactly what we were looking for and could not find locally

love the product - it is perfect for my needs... lots of plyometrics and floor work. But the service of this company really puts them over the edge. Thanks so much for your time and the product. Highly recommend this company

Customer Rating:


This flooring makes a great surface for my basement gym which is over concrete. It helps with general shock absorption while weight lifting, but it's not too squishy to make my spin bike or rower unsteady. I usually use an extra mat on top of this for floor exercises such as yoga or ab work.

Easily installed and easy to work with.


Garden City South, NY

Customer Rating:


Product was as described. Very happy with that. Took entirely to long to receive. Called to ask what the problem was and the answer was that it takes the guys a long time to measure out and cut. I live 2 hrs from the product and it took close to three weeks. I never post but since I had to reschedule a different delivery twice due to this, I had to.


Customer Rating:


Pricing, Product quality, and speed of shipping all fantastic.


Customer Rating:


Great product at a great price. It was an easy install with no surprises at any point of the process.
