Ready to bring the gym to you? Whether you need a simple place to stretch,
or a room dedicated to weightlifting, there is a rubber flooring option to help
you meet your needs.
For a typical home gym, we will focus on lower impact flooring using rubber rolls, tiles and mats built to handle body weight and free weight exercises. These options are perfect for most home gyms. However, Olympic lifting and heavy barbells require a bit more oomph, so we’ll get to those later on in High Impact Flooring.
You may have heard things like “You have to get at least ½” thick rubber!”,
but that is just not true! For home gym flooring, we recommend ¼” and 8mm* rubber.
Of course, you are welcome to buy whatever you like, but to get what you need without
spending an arm and a leg, ¼” and 8mm is the way to go.
Great for the basic home gym, ie: cardio equipment and weight machines
Popular choice, great for home and commercial gyms, ie: free weights, cardio equipment
and weight machines
For easy installation, stationary movements and portability, tiles are likely going to
be your first choice. Our ¼” tiles are all low cost, USA made, and great for the basic
The 8mm tiles are like that big brother that says “Oh yeah? I can do everything
you can do and more!” The 8mm tiles are also USA made and come at a low price point,
but they are thick enough to hold up in a commercial space as well. If you’re looking for
easy, DIY installation that can hold up to all of your rockin’ workout sessions, 8mm tiles will
do the trick.

HOME GYM FLOORING INSTALLATION
- • Loose lay
- • Tape down
- • Glue Down*
*For glue down, you may consult a professional, but DIY is still doable.
THE BEST SUB-FLOOR FOR HOME GYM FLOORING
Any concrete, low pile carpet, hardwood, ceramic or porcelain tiles, or even on top of
compacted dirt. It is important that your 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.
