    Hello, I was wondering where everyone gets their mats from?
    We are shopping around for new mats and we are trying to find the best place to get them from customer service wise and cost wise

    Any help is appreciated !

    Do you know around how much it was per mat ?
    We are looking for the flex ones that you don't have to flip over :)
    I saw the website but no prices on the site

    I highly recommend Ross Athletic! Great to work with and you can sometimes get demo's for cheaper. Ross Athletic Supply, Inc.

    Are you in the coaches section? There are some great recommendations on companies and vendors in there, as well as people & vendors to avoid.

    DO NOT USE TIFFIN!! You will never get mats. I was given warnings, but the price was so great and I was having great success with the rep so I ordered anyways. I ordered 2 panels of mats in July of 2014. Mats were supposed to arrive late August/early September 2014. Dates passed and no mats arrive. Then it was October 2014... no mats. Then before Thanksgiving break. Then in December 2014 I cancelled the order. The woman on the phone assured me they were on the truck to be shipped in the morning, was I really sure I wanted to cancel, which I did. The reps will stop being helpful as soon as the order is placed and you can NEVER get the same girl on the phone. I'm convinced they use fake names so the Brittany you spoke with yesterday doesn't exist. Today she is Jessica and tomorrow who knows. Going into our 2015-2016 season I placed an order for 2 strips with Ross Athletic in February of 2015. In late March of 2015, mats from Ross arrive and we begin our new season. I kid you not that in May of 2015 (10 months later) as I'm driving to practice I get a phone call from a random number. I answer and it's a man letting me know that he is in route and would be there in roughly 5 hours to deliver our mats. After a few minutes of confusion, he was baffled when I told him I cancelled the order 6 months ago. He didn't know where to go or what to do as he had already been driving across country quite a ways. I told him he could bring them to me if they were free, but I wasn't paying for them. I felt bad for him, he was new and had no idea what company he was working for. I don't know what ever happened to the mats, I hope they went to someone else who I'm sure was waiting for a long time for them. PLEASE TAKE THE WARNINGS I DIDN'T AND DON'T USE TIFFIN!!

    That's more than unprofessional, that's just ratchet. I'll bet they have no address.

    But they will have a Fierceboard account within the next 72 hours, mark my words. You know what happens when shady businesses get exposed on here...

    I doubt it. Their drama is all over ASGA and they're being sued. Might be a class action at this point. They don't address ANYTHING.

    Sometimes they make an account and start posting to try to redeem themselves, or they'll just lurk. I think we also had an instance of one business taking down their Facebook page, but I might be misremembering.

    It's pretty entertaining.

    I don't think they have their ish together enough to even get a FB account or monitor this site. I honestly don't know how they're still in business.
