The perfect mat for in-home use, odorless and thick enough to do sit ups on a wooden floor. The construction may be a bit on the weaker side and lacks portability. Initially, I purchased the 'Harbinger 340902 Anti-Microbial Pilates Mat in blue' from , good thickness and portable but had to return it because of a very strong odor that that took over the entire room. I'm quite happy with my Pro Folded Mat by Frelonic and after checking out all available thick mats in the NY area, I can safely say is the best one out there.
I looked everywhere online to replace the perfect light weight folding mat and luckily found the exact one I was replacing! Most mats are too thick and hard to tote around or are too thin and roll like yoga mats. This one is JUST RIGHT! Great for stretching, sit ups, plank, etc yoga postures. I purchases two for the gym I work out in cuz everyone prefers this mat to all others!
I had a 15+ year old Frelonic mat which has held up beautifully, but for exercises where I'm kneeling I thought the cushioning was giving out a little. I just bought a new Frelonic mat and it's very cushioned. It's easy to carry and I think it gives more cushioning than the typical roll-up yoga mat.
I wish it were about 4" longer and about 2" wider.
Use this mat 6 days a week. I have also leant it to others at the gym for them to try it out and they are so impressed they have also ordered one. As I say, the "only" disadvantage is the mat runs short but this problem can be solved by placing a thin yoga mat underneath.
My pilates studio has used these for over 10 years. Same mats - 10 years and we are finally replacing a few. They are really the best and we have investigated and tried some other mats. Clients love these for many reasons but the most frequent comment is "I love them because I don't stick to it".
I bought this mat having used one at the Pilates center. I use it at home with a yoga mat on top of it to do my Pilates exercises. It is very comfortable on a wood floor and the yoga mat protects it from getting dirty. So far I am very happy with it.
I have been using this mat for at least 10 years and it has held up really well. I decided to buy 2 more, one for a friend and one for myself to leave at our Jazzercise center. We both agree it is the most comfortable mat.
I teach Jazzercise 7 days a week and I have used this product for years. It is absolutely the best mat on the market. I ordered qty because my customers wanted them. I have really bad knees and this mat is exceptional for comfort
A simple foam mat that is a great size for all general fitness--exercising and stretching. Its trifold design folds flat so that it tucks away easily. Easy to clean and thick enough to provide good cushioning without feeling "mushy"
