Great for P90X -- Abs, Stretching, Yoga and Plyometrics!
on 31 January 2011
Don't be deterred by the lack of reviews, this seems to be a new product in the UK market!
I got this mat for use with P90X, specifically to help with Yoga X (my hands were slipping on the carpet), Ab Ripper X (spine in contact with the floor), and Plyometrics (a no brainer, it's HIGH IMPACT!). When I first ordered it and was waiting for delivery, I was concerned it may be too thick, or not sticky enough for yoga -- but it is absolutely perfect.
1cm (different websites indicate different widths -- regardless of whatever the width genuinely is, IT DOES THE JOB) thick "high density foam" absorbs nearly all of the plyo impacts (but still allowing for those explosive movements), while not being too thick to interfere with yoga balance poses -- and as for abs, it just does the job! The foam it uses is grippy without being too "sticky", and it feels like it'd be easy to wipe clean with a cloth if it ever gets a bit dirty.
One thing I've got to note is, I hadn't quiet realised how big the mat is (despite measurements being shown), so make sure you measure your exercise area first! The mat is a whole 6ft long, and 2ft wide!
All in all, I struggle to imagine how this mat could possibly be improved -- which is why it gets 5 stars.
