COMMERCIAL GYM FLOORING

You can’t create your perfect commercial gym space without the right floor. Rubber flooring is the top choice for both home and commercial gym flooring .

For commercial areas with lots of traffic, you need to beef up the thickness to stand up to the hundreds of people getting svelte in your gym. We always recommend you go with 8mm, ⅜”* or ½”.

*Popular choice



Rubber exercise mats for Commercial Rolls

8mm rubber rolls

Great for home and commercial gyms

3/8" rubber rolls

Great for commercial gyms that want a little extra protection

More sizes ranging up to 1/2"

Great for areas meant for heavy, Olympic lifting


To cover a large area with flooring that will stay in place for plyometrics, side to side movement, and lots of action, rubber rolls are where it’s at! Most commercial gyms have a larger space to cover, making rubber rolls the most popular choice.

Our 8mm rolls are all low cost, USA made, and great for both home and commercial gyms.

The ⅜” rolls offer a little more cushion to protect your floor. They are thicker and, according to some testing, have longer longevity; meaning if you slam the same weight on the same spot over and over again, the ⅜” will protect the concrete below slightly longer than the 8mm.

We’re not about encouraging you to spend extra cash, so we always recommend the 8mm, but the choice is yours.

Now the ½” rolls are their own thing. These guys are for when you need to bring out the big guns. For a heavy weightlifting area where you may be slamming heavy barbels in the same place repeatedly (like when you crush that new clean & jerk PR!), these guys give your gym the ultimate protection. We don’t recommend ½” rubber rolls for use over the entire gym (hello budget…), but they are a great choice for your weight lifting area.

For easy installation, stationary movements and portability, tiles are an excellent option. Maybe you have a small gym, or you need to be able to move your flooring around easily. Not to worry, you can still get the commercial-strength rubber flooring in easy-to-install tiles!

Like our rolls, our 8mm tiles are all low cost, USA made, and great for both home and commercial gyms.

The ⅜” tiles offer a little more cushion to protect your floor. They are thicker and, according to some testing, have longer longevity; meaning if you slam the same weight on the same spot over and over again, the ⅜” will protect the concrete below slightly longer than the 8mm.

We’re not about encouraging you to spend extra cash, so we always recommend the 8mm, but the choice is yours.

Similarly to our commercial gym rolls, the ½” tiles are their own thing. They are ideal for a heavy weight lifting area where you may be slamming heavy barbels in the same place repeatedly (like when you crush that new deadlift PR!), these guys give your gym the ultimate protection.

We don’t recommend ½” rubber tiles for use over the entire gym (that would be like putting the most expensive carpet in a room where no one actually goes), but they are a great choice for your weight lifting area. Ready to get started? Find the best commercial gym floor tiles for you.




For a mobile option and exercising in a small space, and protecting your floor from heavy cardio equipment, rubber mats can be a great, affordable and no fuss option. For commercial gyms, we recommend our high quality, USA made ⅜” mats.

Of course, you can go up to anything as high as ¾”, but we’re gonna let you in on a little secret: you really don’t need to. They are (usually) more expensive because they are thicker and, according to some testing, have longer longevity; meaning if you slam the same weight on the same spot over and over again, they will protect the concrete below slightly longer. However, unless you’re slamming heavy barbels over and over in the same spot, you really will do just fine with the ⅜” mats.

COMMERCIAL GYM FLOORING INSTALLATION


    DIY Friendly

  • • Loose lay
  • • Tape down
  • • Glue Down*
  • *For glue down, you may consult a professional, but DIY is still doable.



THE BEST SUB-FLOOR FOR COMMERCIAL GYM FLOORING

Any concrete, low pile carpet, hardwood, ceramic or porcelain tiles, or even on top of compacted dirt. It is important that any subfloor is leveled to ensure safety and a flat surface for workouts.

**Note: Dark rubber can stain light carpets, vinyl and some hardwood. Easy fix! → If you are laying the products on top of an existing floor, we recommend getting a plastic sheet to place in between the rubber and your current floor.
