Product Technology & Manufacturing
FitFloor™️ products are manufactured by North West Rubber – the largest manufacturer of recycled rubber products in the world, with over 50 years of leadership in producing innovative flooring and matting products that lead the way in strength, safety, and sustainability. We own and operate manufacturing facilities in Ontario, British Columbia, Beijing, Texas, and Quebec. We have been proudly protecting the environment by recycling over a billion pounds of scrap tire rubber into useful products since 1968.
Polyethylene foam mats and tiles are inexpensive for a reason. They are soft and comfortable making them ideal for yoga or a child’s playroom, but cannot provide the same level of protection from the demands and high impacts of a comprehensive home workout that includes aerobics, cardio, and strength-training equipment, weight lifting, and plyometrics. Foam tears easily is more difficult to clean and provides little antibacterial protection. FitFloor™ products are engineered from 100% high-density, vulcanized recycled rubber. This unique vulcanization manufacturing process means there are no pores for water or sweat to seep into giving you antimicrobial protection and commercial grade durability. Used in commercial sports complexes, ice rinks, and gyms all across North America for the last 20 years, FitFloor™ is engineered to last.
All rubber flooring is not created equal! Polyurethane-bound crumb rubber flooring is porous and will absorb water and sweat which causes odor and bacteria and which will degrade the floor over time. FitFloor™ products are engineered from 100% high-density, vulcanized recycled rubber. This unique vulcanization manufacturing process means there are no pores for water or sweat to seep into giving you antimicrobial protection and commercial-grade durability. Used in commercial sports complexes, ice rinks, and gyms all across North America for the last 20 years, FitFloor is engineered to last.
Long used by commercial sports complexes, professional sports training facilities, and commercial gyms, FitFloor™’ s vulcanized recycled rubber was engineered for the demands of these high-traffic facilities and can withstand skate blades, cleated shoes, and extreme weight drops. Unlike polyurethane-bound recycled rubber flooring which can puncture and tear, FitFloor will provide your home gym with a virtually indestructible foundation. In addition, FitFloor absorbs up to 20 times less moisture than polyurethane recycled rubber alternatives because there are no pores for moisture such as water and sweat to seep into and most importantly no way for bacteria to enter. With over 7 million square feet installed in commercial gyms and ice rinks, FitFloor is proven to last.
FitFloor™, FitFloor™ PRO, and FitFloor™ MAX each offer different characteristics (resistance, friction, impact absorption, noise and vibration absorption, etc.) that will determine what activities it is suitable for. It is important to select flooring based on the activities which will be performed on it. FitFloor™ is 8mm (5/16”) thick and is ideal for aerobics, under cardio and strength training equipment, and for light-free weights. FitFloor™ PRO is 10mm (~3/8”) thick and is ideal for all FitFloor™ applications plus the demands of your high-impact workouts such as plyometrics, Cross Fit, and moderate to heavy weight lifting. For the ultimate protection, select FitFloor™ MAX which is 12mm (~1/2”) thick and ideal for all FitFloor™ and FitFloor™ PRO applications plus extreme plyometrics, Cross Fit, and very heavy weight lifting.
Whether you’re working out to improve your muscle tone and overall conditioning, to burn off excess energy and de-stress, or are an aspiring athlete training for your next big event, FitFloor™ is the professional-grade performance rubber flooring of choice with over 7 million square feet installed in sports facilities and commercial gyms across North America. FitFloor™ now brings its tried and trusted protection, antimicrobial hygiene, and outstanding durability into the home gym as the perfect support for moderate to heavy weights, plyometrics, aerobics, and cardio training activities. FitFloor™ is available in 3 thicknesses depending on the demands of your workout routine and is offered in a variety of colors.

Yes, for over 50 years, NWR has partnered with governments, industry stewardship groups, and other environmentally conscious organizations across North America to reduce the number of end-of-life tires destined for the landfill. We have transformed well over a billion pounds of scrap tire rubber into useful, recycled products with our clean energy, closed-loop production process which generates virtually zero rubber waste during manufacturing. All FitFloor™ manufacturing surpluses (off-cuts, residual materials, etc.) go straight back into production to create our FitFloor™ performance rubber flooring.
