Our mats are available in a range of thicknesses to suit different activities. That said it is important to understand your needs before purchasing your new interlocking gym mats. Different thicknesses suit different activities so you want to make sure you purchase the correct mats. The mats are there after all to prevent injury and create a comfortable training environment.
What is an Interlocking Gym Mat?
A gym is a single mat or a set of mats used for training. People vernally use mats in their training to reduce the incidence of injury and to make the training environment more comfortable. There are different kinds of mats out there but most are either made of EVA foam (an expandable foam) or they are a compressed foam wrapped with material.
These mats are designed to absorb impacts such as jumping or falling. These gym mats are used in training areas in gyms and homes. Some even utilise a jigsaw system, allowing each mat to interlock, providing extra safety when training.
Why use Interlocking Gym Mats
Some gym mats utilise a jigsaw system, allowing each mat to lock into each other for stability. These mats are easy to assemble, easy to disassemble, easy to store and perfect for short-term or long-term use in the training areas at your gym. They are generally referred to as jigsaw mats, puzzle mats, interlocking mats or a combination of any of those terms. Interlocking gym mats are probably the most popular mats available. They are inexpensive which make them accessible. They are also light weight which makes them easy to transport and install.
Our range of interlocking gym mats are perfect for exercise mats. Whether you are doing simple stretches or a more intense routine, exercise can put a lot of strain onto your body, especially your joints; this is where our exercise mats come in handy. With our EVA interlocking exercise mats, you will be able to reduce the strain on your body, minimizing the potential for injuries.
Of course, you still need to take care with your training to ensure you don’t put your body under undue stress, however our interlocking exercise mats will help take some of the stress and impact off your body.
Gym Mats Sizes
Our interlocking jigsaw gym mats are available in three different sizes: 20mm, 30mm and 40mm, and are all used for different levels of sports and gym sessions. At 1m x 1m in size, these mats can be used in a confined or open space.
Generally, the 20mm mats are used in activities where there is little muscle fatigue, little jumping and minimal chance of falls. The 30mm mats are then used for activities where there is more muscle fatigue and impact, as well as a chance of falls. For activities where there is a high level of fatigue, chance of injury, falling or jumping (such as fitness classes), the 40mm mat is a good option. As the level of intensity increases, the thickness of the mat should also increase.
Gym Mat Uses
These mats have a large range of uses for training including gymnastics, weights, fitness classes, aerobics, Pilates, cross-training, boot camp and more. We also have vinyl tatami gym mats available for those times when you need more durability. People use these mats both at home or in a professional environment.
