    Alibaba is more like a storefront for manufacturers to sell goods, so quality depends on what manufacturer you're buying from. Though I've personally never had any good experiences with goods from Alibaba/AliExpress.

    If you're starting a gym and taking customers, a good choice would be to invest in high quality mats. Dollamur and Zebra make good mats based on word of mouth and reviews.

    Personally, I've only ever tried Zebra mats since the gym I go to uses Zebra mats. They're good enough for throws. Don't know how much shipping will be to the UK though, but Zebra Mats are pretty expensive in general. Dollamur mats are a bit cheaper, but are roll out mats.

    Just giving you a quick answer to give you more time to look at options. I'm sure there will be gym owners with better answers than the one I'll give you.
