The home gym! Sure, not everyone is the workout at home type, but a home gym faces all those excuses “I don’t have time”, “I don’t have a gym membership” and shows them where to stick it. It’s true, a home gym is the best way to ensure that your workouts will get done because you are literally already there and getting to the gym is half the battle. Now, you can’t be working out in no janky home gym. That’s not going to get your butt up and moving. You need a legit place to get your sweat on and a legit home gym floor to support you through all of those killer workouts.
he most popular option for home gym owners is home gym tiles. Home gym tiles are like the frozen pizza of the flooring world - they’re ridiculously easy, require practically no prep work and everyone loves them! You find me someone who doesn’t love a good frozen pizza and I will show you someone who must not be human. The same can be said for rubber tiles for your home gym. For many people looking to create their first home gym, installation can be the most intimidating; that’s why we recommend these easy, intuitive home gym flooring tiles.
There’s really no point in spending the extra cash on a super thick home gym floor tile if you don’t need all that extra umph. I mean, if you really love spending money, we’re happy to help you do that, but personally, we believe in getting the best deal possible. When exploring your home gym flooring options, we recommend checking out the ¼”, 8mm and Foam Tiles. Each of these tiles offers an affordable option for home gym flooring while still giving you a high quality home gym floor that will last for many years to come.
Home gyms are not just for stretching and Jane Fonda aerobics videos. No, no, no. If you’re getting ready to practice your power snatches or embark on a hardcore Insanity cycle, you’re going to want to make sure your floor is as beefy as you plan to get. Contrary to popular belief, your flooring for your basement home gym (or garage home gym, or anywhere home gym!), doesn’t need to be upwards of 1” thick in order to support your heaviest lifting sets. In fact, you can go as low as 8mm rubber tiles for your home gym! We do recommend that you stick with rubber as your home gym flooring option, rather than foam, if you’re going to be using heavy barbells and heavy cardio equipment like a treadmill or elliptical. Again, you do not need to use OMG the THICKEST home gym tile flooring, but you do need a little something something to back you up. Anything from 8mm rubber tiles on up will do the trick. If you’re going to be doing a lot of plyometrics (jumping), we recommend checking out our impact flooring for some extra resiliency.
Rubber rolls are another great home gym flooring option. If rubber tiles are frozen pizza, I would say rubber rolls are like the Papa Murphy’s of home gym flooring. They may require a little more for the initial setup, but once it’s hot and ready, it is more than worth it! Rubber rolls are heavy and that means you might want a friend to come over and help you set up your home gym. That’s okay, things are more fun with friends! Rubber rolls for home gyms tend to be a bit more affordable than tiles, making them a popular choice. You can also choose between custom cut and pre cut rubber rolls for your home gym. Custom cut is a great option because it allows you to get the perfect amount of flooring for your home gym and often saves you money and the time of storing/tossing extra materials in the long run.
Like we said, there’s really no point in spending the extra cash on a super thick home gym floor if you don’t need all that extra umph. When exploring your home gym flooring options, we recommend checking out the ¼”, and 8mm rubber rolls. These home gym mats offer an affordable option for home gym flooring while still giving you a high quality home gym floor that will last for many years to come.
Again, your home gym flooring doesn’t need to be upwards of 1” thick in order to support your heaviest weights. In fact, you can go as low as 8mm rubber rolls for your home gym! While you do not need to use the super Hulk thickest home gym rubber flooring; you do need a little something something to protect both your body and your floor. Anything from 8mm rubber rolls on up will do the trick. If you’re going to be doing a lot of plyometrics (jumping), we recommend checking out our impact rolls for some extra resiliency.

**Note: When piecing interlocking tiles together, adhesives are usually not used since the weight of the locked together product is usually enough to keep the floor tiles from moving. However, if you do experience movement and would like to ensure that the tiles do not slide at all, some double-sided tape or mat tape can be used around the perimeter of the installation to prevent any movement.

1. Clean it up. Put away the stray objects, and get that room looking ready to impress to get the cleanest, most attractive shot of your floor.
2. Lighting, lighting, lighting! Is everything! Dark, evening shots will not get you the winning photo. Open the blinds and let that natural light shine in! If you really want to get fancy, take a look at where your light is coming from. Shooting directly into the light can come out harsh and blown out - try experimenting with different angles.
3. Action. We love photos of people enjoying our products and voters do too. We'd love to see the flooring in action.
