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 plyometric flooring 3/8 inch 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 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.
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.

Greatmats was so helpful. I got the product that I wanted and the service that I wanted. We're a very ballet oriented studio. The technique is very important to us.

I bought 5 rolls of the plyometric rubber. I installed it myself to make a home gym. We put some exercise machines on top and also use it extensively for HIIT workouts. I have found the rubber to work great for this purpose. It is not too hard on the joints and has not slipped. I used carpet tape to keep it in place. It took me about 12 hours to install but came together quite well and easy for someone who does not do this work very often. It stays pretty clean but picks up some marks at times. We vacuum it once a week and that keeps it quite clean. Greatmats was terrific in counseling me about picking the right flooring to use for the purpose I described. It was delivered on a pallet. The truck was able to put it directly into my garage. Thanks.
Love, love, love our mat! I shopped for quite some time to find the perfect mat and must of had around 30 rubber samples collected from various companies. I really wanted something squishy enough to absorb impact but also durable enough to withstand a heavyweight in spike heels. I put all the samples to the test, both barefoot and trying on different shoes then with my eyes closed stepping and hopping on each one to see how stiff they were. Then i also put them through the puncture test using high heals and our chairs with the most pointed legs. If they were squishy enough then when i raised my high heel, the sample would be stuck to the heel with a divet in it instead of on the floor where a ''durable'' mat should be. It seemed that if they were in our price range then they weren't what i would consider ''impact absorbing'' AND durable. Well then I tried the Plyometric Roll from Greatmats. FINALLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This mat is so durable I would do jumping jacks on it in heels and not worry for a second. At the same time it is the most impact absorbing mat I've ever worked out on, yet somehow still stiff enough to give you great takeoff when doing those plyometric jumps. The salesperson i worked with Jim Schott was extremely helpful and completely honest with the pros and cons for each Greatmat i had contemplated. He definitely helped me pick the perfect one for what my family needed!!!! Five years ago i was doing Insanity on a wooden floor with a thick yoga mat and my knees hurt daily. I fell off the wagon and gained 20 pounds. Today I'm 43 years old and 20 pounds heavier but now I can do insanity and even P90X Plyometric workouts and walk away with no knee pain whatsoever!!! Thank you Jim Schott & Greatmats!!! P.S. I wanted an economical and durable border to go around it so if we happened to step on the edge barefoot it wouldn't kill our insteps. After walking around all of our local hardware stores we came up with the idea of vinyl wallbase. I ordered a roll of it on Amazon and using a utility knife and double sided carpet tape to stick the wall base onto the rubber in the laid down position . . . vuala!! It would be like the base was stuck on the wall and sort of tipped over and fell onto the mat. The edge curves over the side of the mat and barely touches the floor. Our mat is two nine foot sections of the 3/8 inch 4 foot roll giving our family the perfect 8' x 9' area for working out, playing Xbox, or practicing taekwondo!! One note, when you tape the two sections of rubber roll together don't take the protective sheet off the bottom of the tape, just put the sticky on the side going towards the mats. I've had three of us on this mat doing Billy Blanks tae bo advanced workout and it doesn't budge. To clean it i just vacuum and then graze over it with a very lightly dampened mop. Wish I'd bought it years and saved my knees all the previous pain. The thought of working out anywhere but home, without my mat bums me out! 100% Satisfied customer!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am very happy with this product. I used it as a sub-floor for a ballet studio, and it feels great! It gives some cushion for jumps, yet it is firm enough for point work.
Hi Paul - just wanted you to know that the mats I purchased from Greatmats for my new facility are wonderful. They are much more comfortable than the mats I previously had and because they are in a roll, they don't walk everywhere. I have attached a photo of the fitness room I used them in.
Just curious as to the best way to clean them. Now I am vacuuming them then spot cleaning the footprints and sweat off. Can I do a more extensive clean? Can/should I use a cleaner on them? Can I mop them?
Thanks for the info - Tina Wendel, owner Profile Fitness
Average. Basically a rubber weight room floor with a plastic sheet for dance floor. Will be surprised how long this will last in a high school with daily dance practice. Also, tape is questionable as a means to lock the floor together. Lots of money so I am hopeful it will last a few years.

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.
Had a lot of issues with the shipment. Be careful when you order, if their product ships from more than one location they will charge you for both shipments even though you are ordering the product from them. They promised me that they would combine the shipment so that I could receive the material all at once (still had to pay over $300/piece for each shipment). That did not happen. Second shipment lied about trying to deliver and said that we were not open when I had paid people to be there to take delivery. When trying to get compensated or discounted for the poor shipping, we were passed on numerous times and never received a response to our e-mail. I am sure that as our studio grows we will need more flooring but with the customer service we have received after they got their money, we will be looking elsewhere.

Great customer service and fast delivery.
I just put down my mat. 300 sq ft. It looks great. Hope it lasts a long time!!!!
It picks up every single piece of dust. And you can't get dust footprints completely out. Product terrible. Don't buy.
Sugar Land , TX
.375 plyometric rubber mat roll, a little tricky to cut square but the product is excellent. Covered about 450 sq. ft. and the seams are nearly invisible. Top notch customer service as well.
The salesman was extremely patient with me as I changed my order several times. He never had a problem with any of the questions or changes to my order.
Great company to work with. Sales department was very helpful in determining what I needed. Very happy with my gym flooring.
Quality and ease if install is stellar, be sure to allow a lot of time for shipping to residential. I had to drive 2 hrs to a truck depot in another state to pick my shipment up vs waiting an additional week on top of the 3 weeks it took to get processed to SW Missouri from Wisconsin.
Average rating. I had to contact shipping co. several times to get ETA of delivery. Delivery was scheduled between 12-5pm and driver came at 5pm. Go figure!
can a ball bounce on this?
Would this work on a low pile carpet? We have some low pile carpet down in our garage (converted to a media room).
How would this be in a Zumba studio?
Can this be used as a sub floor underneath a glue down engineered hard wood floor? Need it for dance. And does it smell?
Can this product be used as a subfloor for a regular wood floor installation over a concrete slab?
Could this be installed with a cork floor on top over a concrete slab?
Does it smell, or outgas at all?
