Home gyms can be setup virtually anywhere whether it be in a home, outside, or in the garage.  Wherever you have or intend on setting up your gym, you may want to consider adding some flooring to protect the floor and your equipment.

There are different types of materials you can use including foam, cork, and the more common, rubber.   We prefer and have only used rubber because of its durability, the traction it provides, and impact absorption.  Lets face it, almost all gyms use rubber mats for a reason.

There are a number of places you can purchase gym rubber mats but most of them are ridiculously expensive.  For your convenience we’ve discovered and listed more affordable solutions.  You can actually purchase horse stall mats that do the same job at a much more affordable price.  Despite being made for horse stalls they are basically the same thing and think about this, if it is tough enough to withstand horses trampling all over it, how well do you think it will hold up with people and weights?
