What is holding this pole to the floor?

How did they do this? I've been trying to figure out a way for years now to get a pole into a building that has ceilings too high for it (for performances and lessons). The only option has been those little stage-ette poles where the tiny stage is so small and so high off the ground that you don't have enough room to do floor work or hand stand dismounts safely.

Yet here in this video is a pole that clearly is not attached to the ceiling because it actually moves around when Conan swings from it. But at the same time, the base is just some kind of weighted down mat. How do I make one like this? Is there just a ton of weights in that mat? How did they make the pole strong enough for a woman to swing off without a stage base? It's still not stable enough for a man to swing from, but clearly strong enough to support a small woman. Any thoughts on how they did this?
