Hey guys myself and a couple other trainers are opening a private gym in a 3200 square feet warehouse. Flooring is going to be our biggest expense I was wondering if you guys had any experience finding a good place to buy used. Thanks!

Tractor supply. It's the same mat, solid rubber flooring, and half the price of even used gym flooring. Horse stall mats are the way to go.

craigslist is where I got mine... i bought mine from a gym that was closing down

I've also heard that horse mats work great.

The horse stall mats are a bit thicker.

Buying on craigslist is the way go to. Gyms are closing down like mad

Got my horse stall mats for supposedly cheap, but it was still ridiculously expensive. Do what travis and sully said imo, especially since you plan on covering more space than a single power rack like myself.

Just like others have said, Tractor Supply is good if they have a sale and you need a specific amount. Otherwise I would look at Craigslist since you can probably find a better deal.

Last time I bought horse stall mats at Tractor Supply Co. here they were less than 40.00 tax and all (about a year or so ago).
Always best to check craigslist 1st though. Sometimes you can get a steal. If you go with stall mats, ours work fine for us.

Rural King is another farm supply place to buy horse mat. You can get a 4' x 6' x 3/4" thick mat for about $30.00. Check it out here on their web site. http://www.ruralking.com/4-in-x-6-in-horse-mat.html

Depending on where you are located. If you live near Iowa Jesup Gym will beat anyone's prices.

You can buy it from anywhere who is giving you with reasonable rate and I would like to tell you that use rubber floor for the wall flooring. It is sound proof flooring and maximum gyms have been used it.

Wow that is cheap! I might have to build me a olympic platform, need cheap wood first though.

Where are you located? I have a 1300 sq ft garage that I covered with 1/2 matting. Jesup Gym in Jesup Ia was by far the cheapest I could find.

Hi guys...I'm a rubber salvage broker in Virginia. I've got on hand around 2000 sq ft
(7500 lbs) of milspec gym matting which is being replaced at Fort AP Hill, Caroline County VA. I can sell this stuff dirt-cheap (47 a pound), since the contractor is desparate to get it removed and replaced with the new material.

This matting is in first class shape. All you have to do is reverse it and it's good for another 7 years (why doesn't the Army think of that ! ?).

My own drivers can deliver it anywhere in the US -- including to your site.
