Best flooring for Home Gym?

Hi -

Debating between foam tiles, rubber tiles and horse stall mats. Anyone have any advice or links to decently priced and durable (for the odd free weight drop) flooring?

Gym size is 10' by 10'.

Cheers

Check your local Lowes. Item #938167. 3'x4' 3/4" Rubber Mats. $22.14 each.

They're basically stall mats but half the size and less than half the price. Easier to manage and arrange since they're only ~50lbs each rather than 100lbs, and the size is easier to work with.

I bought a small set from Treadmill Factory just last year - 6 squares which was sufficient for me to keep my weights on. They have a thick and a thinner version with the thicker version (more pricey) but should be able to absorb a drop better. If I recall correctly, the squares came out to less than $100 in total covering an area of 6ft by 4ft.
