Should You Use Rubber Workout Mats for Your Sports Flooring Needs?
There are a number of considerations to keep in mind when choosing the right workout environment for you. For example, not everyone is interested in weight training, and not everyone wants large bulky exercise gear such as a treadmill or elliptical machine. Some people might not want anything at all, and their gym might consist of a big open space where they can safely conduct aerobic exercise such as dance, pilates, or even martial arts. Regardless of what you plan to do with your workout space, specific sports flooring is extremely important for a number of reasons. Working out requires the necessary tools for exercise including equipment, clothing, and appropriate athletic floors, all of which can help you maximize your fitness routine. Rubber sports flooring are an excellent choice over other conventional surfacing for your athletic floors, due to rubber’s forgiving, yet durable nature. Maybe you’ll need a rubber exercise equipment mat for heavy gear, or individual workout mats on which to safely preform some daring yoga poses, like the Crane or even the King Pigeon! Whatever your needs may be, and whatever may or may not be included onto of your athletic floors, rubber mats are a great fit for any situation.
Here are 4 reasons why we think rubber mats are a perfect fit for your flooring needs!
- Rubber Flooring Will Protect You
Rubber workout mats are designed to guard the athlete against solid gym floors, but not only in the event of a fall. Jumping, straining, and stretching are all activities that put a huge amount of stress on your joints, muscles, and ligaments, which could lead to painful injuries. These rubber products are deliberately made to be softer and more giving in terms of elasticity in order to ease the intensity with which a body hits the ground either during a fall or when coming back down from a jump—or roundhouse kick! Rubberized athletic floors will add much needed cushioning during demanding exercises.
Rubber sports flooring is also resistant to wear and can handle the toughest of activities. It doesn’t matter if you’re doing jumping jacks on top of your workout mats, or if you’re sitting quietly while you meditate—a rubber athletic floor is going to stand up to the test. Many rubber products are made from recycled automobile tires, which is a true testament to their toughness. When you consider that tires are designed to withstand some pretty harsh elements, it’s easy to see how rubber mats will handle anything you throw at them. This is especially true when you think of heavy workout equipment. An exercise equipment mat is specifically made denser and thicker in order to uphold the massive weight of these machines.
3. With A Number of Styles—There’s Something For Everyone
There are a number of available rubber workout mats that come in many sizes and designs—from very specific mats that come in predisposed dimensions to actual rolls of rubber material that come in up to 50 foot lengths. There are also thicker rubber tiles, which provide ample cushioning for commercial and private workout areas. Rubber surfacing can even be tailored to fit the specific needs of your sports flooring, which make the installation process hassle free. Rubber mats are offered in an assortment of colors and textures, so there is definitely something for everyone.
4. Ease of Installation
Some rubber mats are available as interlocking tiles, which will make installation incredibly easy, not to mention it gives you the option to cover a bigger or smaller space. Interlocking rubber mats use a “dovetail” mechanism, which allows for quick assembly and disassembly, perfect for non-permanent flooring. There are also precisely sized workout mats, such as an exercise equipment mat, which come in predetermined measurements specific for treadmills and other big exercise machines. Installation for these rubber mats is as easy as being laid out.

These are our four main reasons why we think that rubberized athletic floors are a good match for any workout space. From rubber mats protective advantages (which will definitely keep you safe and injury free), to their incredible ease of installation.
