These mats look great I use them for my mini home gym which has a Exercise bench, an elliptical, and a set of interchangeable dumbbells as well. I've owned the mats for a few months now. I do my exercises on them and they are great. I have wooden floors so these mats soften the impact when doing exercises and also it protects my rug and wooden floors from my constant trampling . Some people might think a rug would do just fine for exercises but rugs slide when you're jumping and running on them. Also the mats are very easily dismantled , I hide them under the sofa after I'm done with exercises. It's much harder to find a rug that you can easily hide away. Lastly,Definably good value at least for what I'm using it for.
