Pilates training with a mat

Pilates is a "well-being" sport based on strengthening your deep muscles. You will often be seated or lying down during exercises. So your mat will become your greatest ally for comfort!

Pilates is a muscle strengthening sport that combines form and relaxation. It is primarily done on the ground. To train in complete comfort, it is highly recommended that you get set up on a good mat.

MATS: YOUR COMPANION FOR COMFORT AND PEACE OF MIND

Your abs, glutes, and back muscles are used in most Pilates exercises. You also need to maintain a good posture during your entire workout. Your mat will save your back and joints by cushioning from impacts, guaranteeing comfort and peace of mind.

WHAT SIZE, THICKNESS, AND DURABILITY SHOULD YOU CHOOSE FOR YOUR MAT? 

To choose the right mat, consider these attributes: the size, thickness, and resistance to wear.

Don't forget that Pilates is done barefoot, so opt for non-slip materials to prevent you from sliding.

PILATES VS. YOGA MATS

For Pilates, you need to be comfortable and insulated from the floor. For yoga, on the other hand, while you still need a thick mat, the most important thing is grip for balancing poses.

MAINTAINING YOUR MAT  

From a hygiene perspective, remember to clean your mat regularly. Use a damp cloth with a bit of white vinegar.

STORING YOUR MAT  

To prevent your mat from losing its shape after use, roll it up and don't put anything on top of it.
