The price of mats is way too high for me so I've been looking at ways to build mat space for my gym cheaper. I have managed to pick up a few used ones from a private school near me but it isn't nearly enough. I might try approaching other schools as well but I'm really interested in making my own now.
My thought was to just go to a fabric store and purchase a whole bunch of thick foam and vinyl fabric and just glueing the vinyl to the foam really well. Do you guys think that will work? It is for home use only and not for a school or anything.
Depending on how this idea works I may only use the foam and vinyl to pad the walls and then use Wal Mart puzzle mats for the floor.
Anyone have any thoughts, ideas, or experience?
