Good flooring for basement workout area - comfortable and affordable
This product was a very economical option for creating a workout space in my unfinished basement. It's a lot lighter weight than I thought it would be, but it's very easy to install and has enough cushion to protect my joints compared to working out on concrete or even normal carpet with padding. 100 sq feet is a good amount of space for the price, and after trying it out for a couple months I just bought another box to get even more coverage. It's not as durable as hard rubber, and I'll probably need to rotate squares into the areas I use most over time. That said, it's much more comfortable than typical hard rubber flooring, and I can comfortably lay down or kneel directly on this matting without needing a separate mat.
I purchased two cases of Groovy Mats for the bedroom I was turning into a workout room. The installation was simple; cutting to fit around corners was easy enough. Each piece comes with two ends so you end up with some extras, but that's better than not having enough! The thickness was perfect for our needs. There was NO weird rubbery smell either. I'm not a DIYer so having a product that I could work with and looks great is huge.
I own a training studio in New York City and I bought this to put under 3 stationary bikes and a stair climber. It looks good and is doing the job. I would say this gray is a shade darker than it looked online, but it is still a good product.

Love these mats! We purchased a workout bench and weights this past Christmas and these mats help protect our hardwood floors. They are cushioned so in case a weight is dropped, it will not damage anything. They can easily be configured to fit the size of your room and are very easy to use. Highly recommend.
