Best Answer

The floor mat measures 40 feet by 40 feet (with a 1' border) and is usually made of carpeting covering padded foam and springs.

There are two sets of interlocking plywood, with the bottom layer having either Springs (usually 4" coiled) or foam blocks.

However, there aren't always springs in the floor, some gyms have floors made of foam and wood.
