Well, it would seem that we have all made it through yet another holiday season. Now with all of our loved ones and the gods of the holidays appeased with extravagant gifts of all shapes and sizes; we can all begin anew. I am sure that we all have some New Year’s Resolutions that need some of our attention now. The most common of these would be the good ‘ol “Loose Weight” resolution.
You may have even taken the extra steps to buying or having gifted some gymnastics equipment for the holidays, by those thoughtful family members. Some gymnastics equipment that by the way; may require some very handy treadmill mats and equipment mats to protect that precious flooring of yours. Or perhaps you’re starting some new routines. Maybe you went out and got a few yoga accessories to start taking classes. You know, shaking out the cob-webs sort of speak. Namaste to the max!
Maybe you’re thinking of making some room in your garage or basement for that home gym you’ve been putting off. You know to make room for the weight bench that you bought years ago. Just lay down some interlocking floor tiles and no gym memberships for you my friend. Make some room for those machines or even for some aerobics with some foam flooring.
Regardless of what you’re doing for yourself this New Year, I certainly wish you all the best of luck on your new ventures and passions. Keep up the good work!

The New Year is here!! Time for those resolutions! How many of us are going to â€œlose some weightâ€?? All of us?Â Cool!Â MatsMatsMats.com is most definitely the place to look to get your workout room started.Â My favorite fitness related products are our interlocking foam mats. They come in a variety of colors and thicknesses and really help with protecting those joints.Â You can do a whole room or just a small area. My entire house is hardwood so sit ups or push ups and even jumping jacks can be strenuous. Â All I really need is a little 4â€™ by 4â€™ area which could stack and slip right under my couch, then snap together quick.Â These interlocking floor tiles are made of a closed cell foam which means moisture, like sweat (gross), wonâ€™t absorb.
Now if youâ€™re really gung ho about working out this year, we have soft rubber mats that are perfect for home gyms. They have a foam base so they are soft enough to protect your back and knees, but the rubber surface makes them durable enough to hold your equipment and give you great footing.
If youâ€™re exercise room also doubles as your garage, and aerobic routines arenâ€™t your focus, our Tuff-n-Easy interlocking rubber flooring might be a better choice.Â They are a solid piece of rubber perfect for giving your area a nice look, support your machines AND durable enough to park your car on.Â Theyâ€™re mostly black with colored fleck, so as an added bonus itâ€™ll hide all the junk your car might track in your garage. Even if one of these 28.5â€ by 28.5â€ tiles get ruined, you can easily swap it out with a new one.Â Try doing that with cement.
Check out my other blogs, I have a few tips to help get that holiday weight off.Â All the exercises can be done with things you probably have around your house or with something inexpensive and probably in stock on our website.

I am a geek; yes I said it and certainly whole-heartedly admit it with great pride and gusto!Â Since I was just a wee one I have been going to Trade Shows of all kinds.Â I used to frequent the Los Angeles Auto Show every year with my father.Â From my teenage years and even into my 20â€™s I attended the Anime Expos in Los Angeles with my friends as well.Â Every one of these conventions would have its Trade Show floors, filled with products, samples and the variable eye-candy abound.Â If you have ever been to, or participated in a Trade Show of any kind you will know that they magically transform an industrial floor space into an appealing show floor for each companyâ€™s products.Â
But how do they transform a barren, open concrete floor into something visual appealing and yet highly functional?Â They do so with our various versions of Trade Show Flooring.Â Â Â From ourÂ Interlocking foam mats with texture tops, to our carpet top interlocking floor tiles, or even the marvelous wood film laminate top interlocking foam floor.Â You can findÂ these flooring tile at almost every trade show you visit. Whether youâ€™re checking out the newest or oldest in vehicular madness, or the cosplay shenanigans of the Anime floor; youâ€™ll find yourself standing on our Trades Show Flooring.Â Also as a side note, if youâ€™re not familiar with cosplay, look it up; just grown adults dressed like comic and anime characters.Â Itâ€™s great for chuckle or two!
So the next time your favorite convention, take a peek downwards and notice not just the products on the floor, but the floor itself.Â Youâ€™ll be amazed by the variety and amount youâ€™ll find of our Trade Show Flooring.Â Happy Hunting, and Happy Holidays!

If you are one of the thousands of people who are responsible for setting up, cleaning up and/or working at your companyâ€™s trade show booth throughout the year then you know the importance of the surface you stand on.Â Trade show booth flooring can assist with the look of your booth, add comfort for you and your visitors and hopefully be re-used (because they can be expensive).
The best bet for your money is to purchase one of the many styles of interlocking trade show floor tiles.Â These are typically the most affordable and, if cared for properly, you can use over and over again.Â Trade show shipping cases can protect your interlocking floor tiles when transporting them to and from tradeshows.Â Additionally, these cases can protect the flooring tiles when being stored in between tradeshows.
A hard portable trade show shipping case with wheels would allow you to store your trade show flooring, ship the flooring directly to your trade show location(s) and easily transport it to and from your booth if the case comes with a handle and wheels.Â Protect your investment and make it easier on yourself at the same time with portable trade show shipping cases.

Playroom flooring or interlocking floor mats can save you a lot of headache and hassle as a parent. Every parent knows what itâ€™s like to have to clean up the messes kids invariably make on the floor; weâ€™re talking spills here, mostly. The worst ones are on carpet! You have to stop what youâ€™re doing, attempt to soak or wipe up the spilledâ€¦whateverâ€¦and then try to clean it out using carpet cleaner; usually a foam carpet shampoo.
You could avoid all of that if you put down some durable kids playroom flooring tiles in your kids game room or primary â€œhang outâ€ area; even if you donâ€™t go wall to wall with them. They make an excellent sound and vibration barrier. These interlocking floor tiles come in a variety of colors, are impervious to fluids, and non-allergenic, and provide superb protection and comfort kids to lounge on while playing; they even protect against injuries from falls. Is it any wonder many playgrounds now days have similar protection with soft, durable playground flooring?

I havenâ€™t been to a lot of expos or trade shows to say Iâ€™m an expert on trade show flooring, or even other types of either rolled rubber flooring, or rubber foam interlocking floor tiles like those pictured here, but I have worked and walked on enough of these types of flooring to appreciate their tremendous value.
Usually, when we think of trade show flooring, or even commercial and industrial mats, we picture in our minds glass booths assembled on perhaps carpet top or faux wood finish mats that either assemble in tile form or those that roll out. When I think of installing some of these amazing trade show flooring tiles in my own home, I think of doing so in our family game room, where my son and his buddies and can liftâ€”and sometimes dropâ€”their weights, without damaging our floor, or without making a lot of racket!
