A friend of mine (HUGE - tall - dude) recently started working out from home and asked me if I knew of any larger mats to accomodate his size & reduce noise. He ordered the extra long, extra wide mat above, and has fallen in LOVE with it.
There are a few ‘fancy’ mats on the market that I like (including the round yoga mat pictured above). I use my mats for more than just yoga/pilates (weights at home - cushions the sound). Having a bigger than average mat really allows me to vary my movement while staying on the cushion surface (if you’ve ever done belly roll overs, you know how annoying they can be on anything but carpet). In the past, I’ve always just put 2 mats together, but when one slips, it can spell trouble.
I WANT my own extra large mat, but I do have the round mat at home. It’s puuurty and I love it loads. I like to roll around on it: loads of fun. :)
Here are some of my recent favs/suggestions. Click on the links for more details! Look for mats that won’t slip, are thick, and as ALWAYS read reviews before buying!
Any other unique mats out there? Sharesies?
