Slimdown Rubber floor, similar to auto tire rubber material. When you first open the packing material, it will smell like new rubber car tires, which goes away within 24 hours or so. The rubber floor works really well on my carpeted basement rec room. It lays flat on all edges; does not slip or move. The rubber floor has a skid resistant dimpled bottom and flat top; so I imagine it will work quite effectively on hard floor surfaces too. The rubber floor weights 60 pounds, with dimension of 4x6 feet, 3/8 inch thick; which is too heavy to move around often, so choose a location that works for you. I use the rubber floor extensively for jumping rope, resistance bands exercises, and thrower's ten. After a good workout, the rubber floor is easy to clean and wipe down. I have a second rubber floor in my garage. It works well on concrete and can provide standing cushion when located in front of a workbench.

Dina V This flooring is very high quality and definitely heavy duty; weighing approx 60 lbs. While flooring is meant for using under equipment and weights, I use it for aerobics, yoga, sit-ups - you name it. It is non-slip and great for aerobics and push-ups. Though note, it is a hard surface, so when doing yoga or any floor exercises, I do use a yoga mat on top of it. Flooring is approx 3/8 of an inch thick and does provide some cushion, though it is not soft. Very satisfied, highly recommend.[...]

Brett I have been searching high and low for a home gym floor mat that is durable and comfortable for high impact training... this isn't it. Although a very durable floor mat, it offers very little support for absorbing shock from jumps. It's barely a step up from my concrete floor. The worst thing about the mat is the SMELL! The item description said it will smell like a tire for a day or too... WRONG! I left it outside for a week and 3 weeks later my home gym still smells a like a tire shop. The intoxicating fumes also give me a headache. This mat is ideal for protecting your floor from workout machinery but fails to comfort the individual who wants it for exercising. I give it 3 stars because it is well made mat, but not comfortable for plyometrics like advertised.

Buck Purchased to match other mats which I bought several years ago. Good durable weight mat.

The negatives (as other reviewers have stated), the smell is terrible, rubber/chemical smell, even irritates my eyes. Left on porch for 1 month too "air out". Still has a strong odor. My previous mats did not have this strong odor. Also, these mats are cut uneven/wavy, don't line up, edge to edge with my other mats. (1/8" or more gap/space in some areas because the cut is so uneven). Can see the floor through the gap. Sent one back for this reason and the replacement was also cut uneven but kept it because it's such a pain to send back. The mat does serve it's purpose and the biggest negative is the strong smell.

VDC These mats are exactly what I was looking for. I have heavy equipment and weights that are in a carpeted room. They are thick and sturdy and are perfect for what I needed. They are also a fraction of the price of the other equipment retailers! The rubber smell is strong at first but wears off after a while. No big deal unless you are sensitive I guess.

dking121 This is a great heavy duty mat and I expect it will do a good job protecting my carpet from my treadmill, but I cannot use it yet because of the overwhelming rubber tire odor that has filled my whole house and has resulted in me dragging it out to my deck to air out. I hope the smell will be gone soon.

not pleased I put these (4) in my gym which has a wood floor border. The mats are mildly hourglass shaped and leave gaps on the sides of each one because they are not cut straight. Rather disappointing.

hipdrive Rolled out flat after putting weights on the ends for a few days. would be nice to get a better deal on shipping. I'll get a couple more anyway.
