I did a search for pet safe padded flooring and came up with several alternatives.

Thanks for the responses. Unfortunately, rubber mats arent an option. I foster kittens and they would kill rubber mats! Lol

I'd look into cushioned squares made of some type of rubberized material...like the previous poster, ask your local gym/big box stores for ideas

If not putting gym mats down and excluding carpet, you are quickly running out of choices.

Have you visited a fitness center to see what they use?

Some options are wood flooring (with padding underneath) or possibly vinyl.
Visit big box store for some ideas.

Also consider the effects of humidity over time. If using free weights, I would install rubber mats in the area to protect floor from accidental drops.

Internet may have some suggestions.

Good luck.

I am looking to replace our current Berber carpet in the basement. One of the rooms is my exercise room. I want something I can move around on without torquing my knee, as the Berber does. Since it is the basement, it is on concrete so cushioning is mandatory. Any ideas? Something permanent....so, not gym mats.
