What Is The Best Free Weight Flooring For A Home Gym?

Lisa Hobbie // 2021

The best free weight flooring will be durable, versatile, and easy to clean. It will provide protection to the subfloor and allow for free movement.

Gym Rubber Flooring offers a number of free weight flooring solutions that will absorb some of the sound from dropped weights, offer shock absorption and work well for other varieties of strength training and exercise programs.

Of the many free weight flooring solutions available, the following 5 are among the best:
  1. Gym Floor Workout Fitness Tile
  2. Rubber Flooring Rolls 3/8 Inch Regrind Confetti
  3. Orange Peel StayLock Tile in Colors
  4. Interlocking Rubber Floor Tiles 2x2 Ft x 8 mm Color
  5. UltraTile Rubber Weight Floor Black

The products are easy to install and offer top notch surfaces on which to use hand weights and other types of equipment needed to build strength and gain muscle.

Gym Floor Workout Fitness Tile is a robust gym flooring solution made from EVA foam. It’s designed for use in home gyms and weight rooms and can easily endure the use and abuse from heavy weight machines and exercise equipment.

These fitness tiles are lead free, latex free, and waterproof. They are versatile and can go under all exercise machines and free weights as a wall-to-wall floor, or, as an island installation. The pebble top tiles each measure 2x2 feet, offering roughly 4 square feet of coverage area per tile.

Interlocking jigsaw puzzle-style edges simplify installation and lock each fitness tile in place, even when they’re subject to stress from weight or intense use. The floor is easy to maintain and will offer years of quality protection.
