Yes! The holidays! So much joy and holiday cheer and fireside chats and sing-alongs. But don’t forget the most important thing of all…PRESENTS! For without presents, our children might actually start asking why we’re not around as much!
Seriously, though, folks.. I strongly implore you to browse and peruse through our many in-stock gymnastic mats and other items this holiday season. Lest we forget our aspiring little gymnasts mini high bar, or perhaps a balance beam, or any of our many other types of gymnastic equipment. The next McKayla Maroneys of the country are hard at work on their spring boards in order to one day fulfill the dreams of a nation!
So this holiday season, be sure to get in on our Christmas delivery guaranteed items and if you didn’t quite make it, there’s always our Santa Letter you can show to the wee ones. Make sure to cover your bases, parents!

This is a very busy time of year all around. At home there are dinners to plan, decorations to put up and gifts to buy. At work we have been making sure there are people on the phones to answer your calls, stock in the warehouse and ensuring things go out on time. I’m mentally prepared for high volume of calls, figuring I’d be selling a lot of our in stock folding mats or a balance beam, but I’m talking to more people about Anti Fatigue mats and Carpet mats than any of our more typical holiday items. I don’t quite get it. I know most of the country is being rained or snowed on, and I’m sure keeping floors clean is probably a big concern, but I might be upset if I received and Anti Fatigue mat for Christmas. Not that it isn’t a great product, but I would only buy somebody something so practical if it was expensive and our mats so aren’t!
The Carpet logo mats I kind of understand. They’re very practical for keeping your floors clean and dry but they’re customizable so you can create a unique one of a kind gift for someone. One of my co-workers actually bought one for her husband for his garage. Now he has something cool to look at and she knows all the garage crud won’t be tracked in on his shoes into their house.
Speaking of the garage!! And this is totally off subject, but I just had a customer put Tuff-n-Easy tiles in his garage and I want to now! We advertise that they’re meant for gym or garage flooring, but I personally have never had somebody use them in the garage. According to my customer the tiles have a very professional clean look and protects his cement. I wouldn’t think the garage floor is something you’d be concerned with “protecting”, but I guess over time oil and whatever else can make it look pretty gross. Also, if you have weights or heavy equipment you can be sure if you drop them they won’t crack the floor or me damaged by it.
