[Costco] (COSTCO in-store) Home gym flooring 40" x 84" - 29.99

I stumbled across these at Costco at Blair towers location in Ottawa. Note that there was no stock at the merivale location. These are made for home gyms and quite heavy / solid. Perfect timing for me as I'm just upgrading my gym.
COSTCO ITEM #: 1324275, Sport matt

Less than 1/4” thick, may be good for yoga or the like but not for weights.

Thank you for looking out OP.

These are way too thick to be yoga mats, but they are perfect for supporting equipment such as treadmills. Weights with rubber , such as dumbbells, should be fine too. The only case I can't see this working is for someone who likes to drop 200 + pounds on the floor after working out, which is not a good habit anyways. As an extra bonus, this is perfect for protecting the floor from cats who like to scratch Smiling Face With Open Mouth Will try to grab a few if I can.

Edit- For anyone who is worried about the smell, it will go dissipate over time, but you must unroll and give it proper ventilation. Took my dumbbells close to a week for the smell to dissipate.

Saw the same product at Costco Oshawa yesterday.
Thin but looks sturdy, not sure if it's good enough.

Not True, you can always lay down multiple layers to make the cushion thicker for more impact absorption. Just a matter of buying more pieces.

Last time I bought similar one at Costco, I put it in the garage half a year, when I put it in my room, the bad smell was still very strong, I had to return it.

Not the best for weights or carpet given how thin they are. Stall mats may be better suited if you want to fully protect what is underneath from heavy equipment.

I bought 4 rolls at Costco Boisbriand.
They are made from recycled tire. The material is very dense and study. Excellent protection to put gym equipment over it.
However, it has a very strong odor. I am hoping it will go away with proper ventilation.

Definitely better than the foam interlocking tiles I'm rocking right now, but not as good as the rubber mats we've seen at Lowes. To be honest though, how many people are really dropping their weights from a height high enough to damage their flooring? I'll keep an eye out for these as they should be totally fine for my use case, but granted I'm not hucking around 60lb+ dumbbells

I have this mat over a 3/4 (really hard) mat when doing deadlifts. I deadlift 4 plates (405 lbs) and I'm not afraid at all for my floor or house foundation. This is quite rough and thick and perfect for my needs

You remember how long it took the smell to go away?

I wonder if the smell actually dissipates or do we get use to it.

I bought one of these ~5 years ago from Costco and it still stinks, even after washing it and leaving it out in the sun for a few days.

It was in my shed for a few years, then covid hit and I remembered I had this mat. Brought it inside and stunk out my home gym.

I bought mine past December, left it outside for 3-4 days. Doesn't smell whatsoever.

+1 . Also, anyone know if this would work as a liner for a massage chair?

I have heard that horse matts are pretty smelly too... no? My local fitness depot had vulcanized matts which are not supposed to smell but they were $118 each. Horse Matts seem to go for 60 - 100 on kijiji but they are made for outdoors and are known to off gas.
I unrolled one roll in my basement yesterday. It definitely smelled but went down this morning and it is better. I can update later if interested.

I actually have those interlocking kids foam mats down now. I discovered that keeping them down as an underlay for these heavier matts is a really nice balance of sturdiness and protection.

I won't be dropping 400-500lbs weights any time soon. If you are an Olympic lifter that drops heavy weights, then definitely go for something thick.
