In addition, we have a new baby and it makes a great play mat too!!! baby loves the blue colour and rolls around lol. One negative is that due to its size and thickness it takes some time/difficulty to roll up and when u do its not a small one u can't fit in your back pack!! but this is expected for a home mat (mind you if u wanted you could take to the gym and get funny looks and take 3 times more space LOL) Overall very happy its well made and does the job perfectly.
The only draw back is that over time it will get a bit crappy, folding it creates a lot of creases that don't go away very well and standing on it also makes indentations.
I do recommend this for anyone that needs a good exercise mat for the home but you might be able to buy something better for the price.
I am using this mat mainly for sit-ups and some pilates work.
I have hard wood floors and I do not feel my tailbone or knees crunching through like I do on the thinner yoga mats.
It does not seem to slip around which is a plus but I think that is a function of how dusty your floor and mat are.
Doing balance poses on the mat is not so good because of the amount of cushioning but then you can just step off of it.
Because of the size of the mat, it does not roll-up as nicely as a yoga mat, so keep this in mind if you are tight on space, but the supplied bands to keep the mat rolled up are handy.
I am happy that I bought this mat as are my knees and tailbone.
Update- I want to add that this mat is made of foam so any hard objects (zippers, dumbbells) might leave an indentation or tear the material so keep this in mind when working out.
The mat is wider than I thought it would be, allowing for easy comfort when it comes to push ups, but it does still slide around when it comes to 1-2-3 hiesmanns - the mat does slide around a bit on laminate flooring (even with rug grippers underneath). Oh well, I bought this mat mainly for the jumping movements anyway and it works extremely well for those.
I also use it for some home yoga stretches and it works brilliantly for that, adding some plush cushioning and protection from a hard laminate floor!
There may be an issue with durability, but I'm not going to take a star off for that. At this price, if it wears out I'll just buy another one. The only reason not to buy this mat is if you want a portable mat for taking to exercise classes.This is not the mat for that. For home use however, it is the ultimate mat in my opinion.
If you are doing something a little more energetic this mat is a bit annoying. Even when doing low intensity exercises like the plank or push ups the mat stretches and distorts. If you are doing more aerobic activities then it becomes difficult to use.
It's still a good quality mat though, and I do a combination of yoga and other cardio activities, hence still giving it 4 stars.

Great mat for my daughter (7) to practise her gymnastics on. Not too big so she can use it indoors, and on dry days she has been using the mat on the grass in the garden. Read morePublished 23 months ago by iamEllie
