Top 5 Gymnastics Crash Mats For Sale

You can find gymnastics crash mats for sale that help teach skills on vault, floor, bars, and conditioning exercises. All mats range in thickness from 4″(light padding) to 8″(medium padding), and 12″(heavy padding). First you’ll need to determine the skill level you want to practice, then find what the mat’s thickness needs to be in order to support that skill level (more on this below).

We recommend using Incores Best Landing Mats for their variety of sizes that make it pretty convenient while maintaining a safe quality product OR the Tumbl Trak Pillow Pit because it can fold which makes it easy to move and it can attach to multiple mats.

Incredibly Affordable Cheese Mats For Sale

Cheese mats are incredibly useful inside and outside the gym, and although there are some factors to consider before making any decisions, we have found the most affordable cheese mats for sale.

What are cheese mats used for?

The most effective part of a wedge is its incline slant. That incline slope is what gives your budding gymnast a little push to help complete a skill. Eventually, they will need to learn how to create that push themselves, but for now, let’s take baby steps.

Here is a list of skills wedge mats are used for:

  • Forward & Backward Roll (All variations include straddle, pike, dive, back extension, handstand to forward roll, and so one.)
  • Cartwheel
  • Roundoff
  • Front Walk Over
  • Front & Back Handspring

Here’s a fun little exercise to practice handstands with the cheese mat: Turn the wedge upright, the flat part can be used as a handstand spotter so that if the gymnast loses balance they will either fall away from their mat back on their feet (the position they started in) or fall toward the mat (more so falling with it) where they will land on top of it safely.
