I started BJJ in January and began searching for some type of mat for home workout. Both the reasonable price and the size of the mats made them perfect for me. The 2'x2' size is easier to store than standard 3' mats. They also lock together very tight and even though I put them together and take them apart 2-3 times a week are still holding up well. I have reccomended them to all of my friends I train with.
I ordered the 1″ MMA tiles for our Tae Kwon Do school. I placed my order late at night and was surprised to see that they had already been shipped early the next morning. The tiles themselves are great; durable, easy to clean, and look great. Installation was also very easy, it only took about 2-3 hours to install over 1200 s.f. of flooring, with 4 people working on it. We are holding classes on the flooring four nights per week, and so far it is holding up beautifully. Highly recommended!
Great mats. The 1″ thickness is perfect. We are a commercial gym and this mat gets used daily in a big way and they are holding up very well. The initial slippery surface people have spoke of is just about gone after a months use. Our members are really enjoying the upgrade.
These tiles are perfect for my acroyoga practice, picked up 12 and that is perfect for one couple. Dropped my flyer a few times and the impact is really softened. I break them down and hide in closet until I get to play; setting up in my living room or taking to gym is no problem!
Dollar for dollar these are the best mats you can buy. They are of good qualitiy and the free shipping is a major consideration. I have been using the mats for several weeks and some of my students are around 250 pounds and the mats hold up extremely well. We train with MA shoes and the mats don't show scuffs.
For MMA or jiu jitsu you need at least a little traction on the ground. These mats do not provide that. They are so slippery you cannot do shrimp crawls, makes escapes hard.. any kind of foot work is near impossible. They would make great play mats for kids but that's about it. They do have a decent impact rating that's why it got a 2nd star.
I purchased this product after getting a quote on reupholstering my boat. Since its primarily just me, I didn't want to spend that kind of money so I started looking for something like this and since the price was right, I purchased a box to try it out. It worked almost perfectly after I cut 2 of the squares to make the seat for the center console. My only issue was the same as alot of other reviews have pointed out, the coating on them made glueing 2 together a challenge. Other than that, outstanding results!!
The tiles seem to be coated with some type of coating that makes them very slippery. The coating also seems to remain on the floor beneath the tiles after the tiles are removed, and has been tracked by foot to other floors in the house, making them slippery as well.
Ordered for a garage workout area, and am very pleased. First the thickness of the pads are great, much thicker and at a better price than the sporting good stores in area. The assembly was easy, our 14 year old son put it together, and the edge pieces are nice. Overall very happy
I've studied Shito Ryu Karate-Do for 2.5 years and am now studying Sil Lum Kung Fu. These mats were a breeze to put together and cut by myself using the instructional video provided on FoamTiles' site. I can now practice break falls, take-downs, and rolls inside my dojo rather than hoping for good weather to do it outside. I use these mats barefoot and there is just enough grip so I won't fall, but they are also slick enough that they won't twist your toes when doing a roundhouse kick. In my experience, some mats will grip the toe in place when trying to pivot, causing injury. What made this dream possible was the pricing and I couldn't pass it up. I even compared these prices with the wholesale providers that my Sifu uses and they were still nearly $200 cheaper. Lastly, the customer service via the phone and Live Chat was wonderful. It was easy to communicate, and they answered all of my questions. I spoke with 3 different agents on different occasions to help finalize my decision and all 3 individuals gave me the same quality of customer service. So I decided to go ahead and place my order rather than ordering free samples first and I am so happy with my purchase!
Great flooring overall. As others have mentioned, it has a very slippery feel. Definitely sticks to your feet and socks which can spread throughout the house (mine being 100% hardwood and tiles). Hasn't totally gone away after almost a month of personal use for cardio workouts. I even tried to wash them with a rag but it didn't go away. Hopefully it'll go away in due time. I'm already noticing the areas that experience high traffic to be less slippery. Two mats had a permanent little indention. size of a nickle each, but it's barely noticeable. Probably from shipping. Doesn't affect anything anyways. It does shift around easily for a 9'x12' set up on hardwood floors. Thankfully, two sides are against the wall, so it's not so bad.
We chose to install the 1″ MMA mats in my son's bedroom as opposed to carpet. So far (1 month in), we are extremely pleased with the results. Install was quick and easy, the kids love the feel, and it was about $600 LESS then having carpet installed! We have the kids take off their shoes, boots, or cleats before they enter so that should help extend the life of the product. One of the cool parts about these tiles is that as they get beat up (and they absolutely will), we can just flip them over or even replace tiles as needed.
I have intense plantar fasciitis and one day was joking about how my life would be complete if my entire house floor was a huge mat. The more I thought about that, the more I thought,, why not? So I browsed sites for days looking for exactly what I was imagining and landed here. Talked with a knowledgeable and friendly lady who described them perfectly to me and proceeded to purchase enough to do all five rooms in my apartment. They shipped for free and we're here in under a week. And they are everything I was hoping for!!! They fit together perfectly. They were easy to install. We threw big area carpets over them and in the kitchen we found some that looked like an oak floor and put that right over the Mma mats. I'm a cook that works 12 hour shifts on concrete and I've had heel spurs and plantar fasciitis for years. This is heaven. I literally only want to be home now. It's like walking on clouds. I'm so in love and grateful and thankful!!! These are saving my life!!! 😍
I like the material, thickness and consistency of the product, which I bought to protect my knees while doing jump training / plyometrics. But the mat slips when I run or jump, causing instability for my legs when I land. This actually creates more risk of injury. I have to put heavy weights down on each end of the mat to minimize the slipping, but even this is not enough.
Awesome mats. Just what we needed for our Thai Boxing class. Easy to clean and great rebound. Wouldve given 5 stars but they are a little slippery.
Good mats, but are very slippery.
Awesome floor, easy to install, great for ground work and take downs!
Excellent Product .. So, easy to install
My husband & I purchased a home that was built in 1926, and needless to say the floors aren't totally even. We wanted to put flooring down in the converted upstairs to use as a music/tv/karate room for my husband who has numerous guitars and amps. We had been searching for something for quite a while that we could use to make the space more comfortable as well as adding a little buffer between floors when he was playing his guitars. We happened to come by your site through a search and were very pleasantly surprised at how many products you had as well as the prices! We decided on the 1″ MMA squares and from the moment they arrived we realized they were even better than we thought they might be. My husband & I put in the flooring with very little work, even adding a contrasting band around the edge. It came out beautifully! We were so impressed by the quality, easy installation, and great price... and decided to order 2 more boxes to finish off even more of the upstairs floor. We would HIGHLY recommend these floor tiles to anyone looking for an inexpensive yet high quality flooring with some added cushioning. It could be used for any situation (martial arts/music room/exercise room/and more, the possibilities are endless. We are thinking about putting more of this down in a couple other rooms. We live in an area with a lot rain & humidity and these tiles even add warmth where the floor was cold before. THANK YOU Rubber Flooring INC!!
