What size, thickness and durability to choose for my floor mat?
To correctly choose your floor mat, pay attention to
the mat dimensions
To avoid practising your exercise directly on the ground, choose a mat that is bigger than you are.
The thickness of your mat is essential.
During relaxation sessions (yoga), opt for a thick floor mat to protect you from heat, coolness or humidity on the ground.
During dynamic sessions, opt for a floor mat that is thick enough to absorb impact.
In general, avoid mats that are too soft and too thick, on which you risk twisting your ankle, wrist or other joint.
its resistance to wear
A floor mat is not very expensive. But watch out for the entry price ones. Above all, choose a floor mat that withstands repetition from the exercises.
Final word of advice: choose a non-slip material.
