Maybe youâ€™re not looking exactly for trade show flooring like the kind used in expos, but maybe you need exercise room flooring, as roll up flooring wonâ€™t quite suit your purposes.Â If you were looking a couple of decades ago, you might have had to be content using exercise mats pushed together, or stacked throw rugsâ€”both of which we all know just wonâ€™t cut it when you need something far more durable, practical, and portable.
Exercise flooring like that shown here, you should know, is:
- Made of EVA foam and contains no latex.
- Non-Toxic, Lead-Free, Latex-Free.
- Fire Retardant, meeting highest flammability requirements of FHSA Section 1500.3.
Whatâ€™s more, our exercise flooring comes in either 2â€™ x 2â€™ interlocking tiles, or 4â€™ x 4â€™ for covering larger areas fasterâ€”either way, youâ€™ll find what you need.

Not every exercise facility owner wants wall-to-wall exercise flooring.Â Â There are times folding exercise mats are the ideal solution to fill the need for exercise mats for either stretching out, performing certain calisthenics [like crunches on a hard floor], or even practicing some yoga; folding exercise mats have been around for decades are still terrific when padded flooring isnâ€™t available or practical.
And people arenâ€™t the only ones in need of special mats.Â Exercise equipment should be placed on non-slip, protective mats, such as when youâ€™re using a treadmill, youâ€™ll want to use a treadmill mat, especially if your treadmill isnâ€™t in your home or on a rug; stationary exercise bikesâ€”as all exercise equipmentâ€”should also be placed on appropriate mats for safety, stability, and protection.

Looking for exercise mats and accessories for your school gym, karate studio, or the local YMCA?Â Â Unless your needs are rather small, and youâ€™re not too picky about quality and goods that will endure, donâ€™t go shopping for ANY type of exercise, yoga, or other training matsâ€”even stretching matsâ€”at your local super center that also happens to carry sporting goods or that has a small section of their store devoted to sports apparelâ€”you know which ones weâ€™re talking about hereâ€¦they also have a grocery section, along with clothing, lawn and gardenâ€¦you get the idea.
If youâ€™re the one who has been assigned to outfit an exercise facilityâ€”if youâ€™re not the owner or head manager, that isâ€”your best bet is to shop online.Â For instance, if youâ€™re looking for weight lifting gloves, resistance tubes or resistance bands, interlocking foam tiles, or rolled rubber flooring [pictured here] to provide the right kind of flooring, you can be sure to find what you need here.

With the invention of 2â€™ square, interlocking foam tiles, the world of exercise mats and exercise flooring blossomed into a safer, more energizing, and more attractive world, to say the least!Â How so? Â Well, for example, it used to be, in a high school gymnastics program, large, bulky, foldable mats were slid togetherâ€”or stackedâ€”to provide floor space that was suitably safe for tumbling and practice of other activities where falls are inevitable.
Nowadays, since the advent of the tough, durable, firm-yet-sufficiently â€œspringyâ€ foam flooring tile, gymnasts can tumble with greater vigor, spring with more bounce, and the shock absorptive qualities of the foam are ideal to protect against hard falls where even harder floors lie underneath.Â And if the space to be filled is especially large and spacious, 4â€™ square, EXTRA jumbo interlocking gym flooring will be perfect to get the job done and lay down that much-needed protection.
