Discount Gym Mats


Perfect for cheerleading and gymnastics training, Discount Gym Mats are manufactured to the highest quality of workmanship.  They are made of top of the line, cross-linked or PE foam core making them tough enough for professional or home use.  These mats are commonly found in high school and university gyms across the country and around the world. Designed for durability and superior shock absorption, these are excellent multi-purpose mats.

Not only can you use these mats for home tumbling and cheerleading practice, they are also great for gymnastics or martial arts studios.  Use them at home for pilates or floor exercises.  They are lightweight and waterproof so you can bring them with you wherever you need an exercise mat to spread out for your exercise needs. These mats feature 2-foot panels and fold accordion-style for easy storage and transportation. You can also use these gymnastics mats as wall padding.  Simply screw the external flange on the long side of the mats to a firing strip attached to the wall and you’re done.

All of these discount gymnastics mats have hook and loop fasteners on all 4 sides and come with a thick, industry standard 18 oz vinyl cover. Each discount gym mat is hand-crafted with double stitched seams. Because they come with fasteners on all four sides, you can create an end-to-end run or build an entire floor by attaching mats at the sides as well as at the ends.

At Greatmats, we stock Discount Gym Mats so they are available for next day shipping.  All of our Discount Gym Mats are currently on sale and some sizes and thicknesses are available with free shipping.  Please contact one of our friendly customer assistance representatives to determine which products will best suit your needs.  Depending on the color and thickness, Discount Gym Mats come in either blue or black.  Volume discounts are available.

A quick note on safety:  Tumbling mats and protective equipment are not a comprehensive solution for eliminating or reducing all tumbling injuries.  Please understand that no mats are fail-safe. There is no substitute for proper instructions, spotting, and common sense when it comes to teaching tumbling or other forms of gymnastics. Landing on the head or in an out-of-control position can result in injuries despite the extra padding provided by mats.

Patio Aqua Tile

Looking for a comfortable, low maintenance, and easy-to-install flooring for your pool area?  Check out our Patio Tile Aqua.  It is perfect for outdoor use around wet areas because it is a drain through, elevated floor product. This flooring is also excellent for your hot tub or spa area.   Its drain-through design will not absorb any moisture and lets all water drain through which will insure a consistently dry surface on top of the tiles.  This will keep your surround safe from mold and mildew as well as provide a more comfortable area.  This is critical because, if water is absorbed by your outdoor patio tile and freezes, the ice can crack and destroy your flooring.  With Aqua Tile, you won’t have that problem.


As almost any parent will tell you, keeping children from running near the pool can be a full time job and sometimes they run despite your best efforts.  It is imperative that your pool surround provide extra traction to keep everyone safe.  Fortunately, these tiles provide that extra layer of security for your family and guests.  They are also designed to be comfortable for bare feet.  Aqua Patio Tiles are perfect for use in a variety of wet areas including swimming pool areas, spas, showers, decks, and saunas.
These patio tiles come in four attractive colors: blue, terracotta, gray, and green.  They are UV stable for outdoor use so you don’t have to worry about your tiles fading in the sun over time.  They are also weather resistant so you can rest assured that they will last for years. Aqua patio tile is designed to accommodate the weight of common foot traffic and residential tables and chairs for outdoor usage.
Each patio tile is 11-5/8” x 11-5/8” and 1/2” thick.  They are easy to install because they feature a unique interlocking tab and loop connecting system.  These tiles simply snap together.  You need no messy adhesives and, in most cases, you can simply design your own pool surround in a few hours.  Use our handy online floor planner to determine how many tiles you will need.  Easily cut this PVC floor tile with a utility knife for a total wall-to-wall installation and viola!  You have an attractive, safer, and more pleasant area to relax in by your pool.
But don’t take our word for it.  Check out our customer gallery to see pictures of our product in various locations around the country.  Check out our customer reviews to see that, when it comes to outdoor, wet area flooring, Greatmats has got you covered!

24x70 Fitness Mats

These days, most of us already know the importance of exercise.  Not only does it reduce the risks of frightening killers like heart disease, it gives you more energy and helps you to look better by keeping the fat off and your muscles toned.  In fact, it turns out that exercise also makes you smarter and happier.  According to Harvard Medical School psychiatrist John Ratey, author of the book, Spark: The Revolutionary New Science of Exercise and the Brain, "Exercise is the single best thing you can do for your brain in terms of mood, memory, and learning.  Even 10 minutes of activity changes your brain."


Which is well and good but it can be very difficult to find time to go to the gym.

Introducing the Fitness Mat 24x70 from Greatmats.com.  It's an excellent little portable mat that you can unroll and use just about anywhere.  It is great for college students or working adults who don’t have a great deal of space or time for exercise. These fitness mats provide anti-fatigue properties so exercising on them is more comfortable than the floor.  Made from EVA foam, they are lightweight and easy to carry around.  Fitness mats are waterproof and non-slip.  They are also lead and latex free.

Interlocking Carpet Tiles


When it comes to flooring for trade show booths, convention centers and showrooms, patios, theaters, sunrooms, or even basements, Interlocking Carpet Tile Royal is an excellent option.  These tiles easily piece together into a solid floor that features extra cushion and a lush carpeted surface.  The foam tiles are remarkably easy to install, simply piece them together and you’re done, no adhesives or tape required.  Edges can be cut to fit any area with a sharp utility knife.  Borders are also provided.  These interlocking foam tiles are lightweight and easy to transport.   They create a portable, carpet-top flooring you can bring with you almost anywhere.  Tiles are waterproof and easy to clean. 

Not only does this flooring look great, it provides excellent fatigue relief so you can stand on it for hours.   The base of the carpet tiles features a 1/2” dense foam that will not break down over years of usage.  These tiles are designed for commercial use so they’re incredibly durable but also very inexpensively priced.  They are tough enough to withstand daily abuse from tables and chairs as well as high traffic areas.  Even high heels are no match for this flooring!  Tiles are also anti-slip so they improve safety for your customers.  Non-beveled edges will not present a tripping hazard.

Horse Stall Mats


Is it a daily challenge to keep your horses and stables clean?  It might be time to consider horse stall mats.  Mats are great for keeping stalls and flooring neat and clean, even when it’s raining and sloppy outside.  Unlike dirt and other natural bedding, mats can be quickly hosed off and will dry quickly.  Mats also prevent horses from digging up the dirt and making a mess while still providing a softer standing surface than concrete. 

Our mats for horses are the best mats available on the market today and we provide them at competitive prices.  American made, these tight fitting, interlocking rubber tiles, are precision cut with a water jet.  This ensures a perfect installation every time no matter how unorthodox your facility may be.  The interlocking edges keep your floor from sliding around and making an unsafe environment for your horses.  Also, unlike less expensive “floating” mats, the interlocking design keeps dirt from getting underneath the edges.  Once dirt gets under the edges of cheaper mats, the edges begin to curl up creating a tripping hazard and an ongoing cleaning project that most people would just as soon avoid.

Our horse stall mat kits are made of the best recycled rubber on the market and come with a 10 year warranty against manufacturing defects.  They are designed to last for 20 years under normal equine use.  They are great for a number of applications including horse stalls, wash areas, aisleways, foaling stalls, semen collecting stalls, trailer floors, and grooming areas.  All horse mats come with a flat bottom and diamond-top surface that provides comfort and stability for you and your animals.  They are remarkably easy to install and require no adhesive.

Horse stall kits come in three different sizes: 10x10, 10x12, and 12x12.  Each mat is 4x6 and weighs 100 lbs.

Gymnastics Inclines


According to the U.S. Trends in Team Sports report, gymnastics has more participants of 6-12 year-olds than any other sport.  More than 48% of all active gymnasts belong to that age group.  When it comes to teaching the basics, gymnastics inclines are a crucial tool for any facility.  At Greatmats, we offer inclines at competitive pricing in both folding and non-folding options.  Instructors will find them extremely valuable for teaching all gymnasts from beginners to elite athletes.  They are also extremely effective for use in cheerleading programs.

Our gymnastics inclines are being used across the country in many capacities.  Beginners in “Mommy and Me” classes can use them to learn the basics.  Elite athletes training for international competition can use them to learn the most advanced moves.  Inclines are great tools to teach work on bars, basic tumbling, floor exercises, and conditioning.  The gymnastic incline is beneficial because gravity acts as an ally to the beginner to learn forward and back rolls.  You can use the mats for greater momentum when learning back handsprings.  They can also be used to teach vaulting.  Try them for bridge kickovers, handsprings, or as a flyback station.  If you lean them against a wall, you can use them to practice blind changes.   Larger versions make it possible to perform consecutive moves.  Use gymnastics inclines to teach gymnasts how to grasp the early stages of the reverse hecht.

Also known as wedge mats or cheese mats, the gymnastic incline can also transform into firm mini-pits or spotting tables or blocks.

Both our folding and non-folding gymnastics inclines are available in one solid color or two contrasting colors.  We offer a number of different colors so you can find the incline that best fits your facility.  Various sizes are also available.  Gymnastics inclines are easy to clean, transport, and store.

This durable, vinyl flooring material is the thickest dance floor we offer and we provide it at a surprisingly reasonable price. 

Choose this marley dance flooring for all dance types including tap, Irish, flamenco, modern, jazz, lyrical, ballet, ballroom, or even drill team.  It can be used with either hard or soft dance shoes.  If you’d like to use marley dance flooring for theatre or filming applications, it can easily withstand the weight of sets and camera dollies even if they are used on a regular basis.  If your dance or theatre troop likes to travel, you can bring your marley dance flooring with you.  Use a tape-down installation for temporary usage. For studios or other permanent applications, use a glue-down, heat weld for a seamless, no-tape floor. 

Dance and Stage Pro is available in four neutral colors so it will coordinate with any colorful stage set or dance costumes.  Choose from black, white, light gray, or dark gray.  The floor measures six feet wide by 60 feet long and weighs 280 lbs per roll.  If you would like a free sample of our marley dance floor, please feel free to call one of our professional and caring customer service representatives and we will be happy to assist you.

Please note that tap shoes with aluminum taps will leave black oxidation marks on all vinyl flooring material.  You will find this is more noticeable with gray flooring.  It is for this reason we do not recommend gray flooring when using this floor for tap dancing. Tap shoes with steel taps will not leave black marks but all tap shoes will leave some clear markings on the floor.  For cleaning purposes, we recommend Rosco floor cleaner which we also have available.  Just let us know!

Please keep in mind that this material should always be stored in an upright standing position when rolled up on a core and not in use.
