While you may be able to handle the heavy lifting, your floor may not. Keep your workout space in pristine condition and muffle the noise of your machines with help from an equipment mat. Designed as either a single piece or several interlocking pieces, rubber and foam equipment mats are great for use beneath heavier workout equipment, like treadmills, exercise bikes, weight benches and weight racks that may damage your floor over time. While spacious puzzle equipment mats and roll-out equipment mats offer semi-permanent coverage, you can also use a portable mat at your weight training station to keep your floor protected against chips and scratches caused by accidentally dropped weight plates and bars. Some mats even offer antimicrobial surfaces that'll help you maintain a hygienic fitness area.
Whether your workout area is large or small, there's a fitness mat that'll keep the floor covered. Puzzle equipment mats boast interlocking pieces that fit firmly together to create a uniform look. Because the configurations are nearly limitless, these mats are great for customizing a large coverage area. Plus, some are made to look just like a hardwood floor to seamlessly blend into your decor. If you're looking for something simple that's quick and easy to set up, go with a 1-piece flooring and yoga mat. Available in a variety of sizes, these mats are simple to set up.
