Exercise mats are rapidly becoming the next must-have piece of home fitness equipment.
You want your workouts to be effective. But without a good exercise mat, your workouts will suffer. Since floorwork is an essential part of any fitness program, you’ll be shortchanging yourself during abdominal, core, and flexibility training, and during many of your isometric workouts.

Which EPE Foam/PE Foam+PVC/PU Leather Gym Mats is best?
Aside from superficial differences, there are several minor variations in style.
Although the typical exercise mat is six feet in length (a bit less than 2 meters), longer exercise mats are more useful, so let length be your guide, especially if you’re tall.
Thickness is important. Generally, thin yoga exercise mats are 3/16 to 3/8 inch thick. This is perfect for standing poses that might be affected by thicker mats. Exercise floor mats that are 5/8 inch thick are better for ab workouts and pilates-style exercise routines. The additional padding is welcome when you put your weight on your hips or tailbone.
The surface of the exercise mat is important. Mats should “grip” the floor, allowing you to move around without sliding. They should wick away your perspiration, so you don’t have pools of sweat making it hard to avoid slipping.
Finally, you want a mat that lays out flat. If it curls back into the shape it was in during storage, it won’t serve you very well. Go to amazon.com and read user reviews; you’re sure to find one that suits your needs.
