A workout mat is an essential part of any fitness workout.
We tell you why and how to choose one.


MATS: your perfect partner when it comes to a comfortable workout

When you're doing fitness exercises on the floor, you're going to need a workout mat.


Firstly, it allows you to work safely by protecting your joints and your body as a whole.

Workout mats also absorb sweat when you're exercising hard and they're all washable too.
Finally, our mats are designed for one or more type of exercise, which means there's one for everyone.
You're sure to find a mat to suit your taste and budget.
which is all the more reason why you should have one. But how to choose the right one for you.


How to choose your mat

When choosing a mat you need to take into consideration the type of exercise you do. 

They all have different characteristics and meet the needs of each type of activity: grip, thickness, durability, size, etc.
The key words that should guide you in the choice you make, regardless of the type of exercise you do, are comfort and safety. Your mat is your perfect fitness partner and you need to be at one with it.

- They provide an extra level of comfort when you're barefoot.
- There's a mat for everyone as they come in three sizes: S, M, L
- They're easy to keep clean: just wipe with a damp cloth.
- You can roll them up, which means they're easy to carry and put away.


You do moderate to intensive fitness workouts

Are pull-ups, press-ups, jumps, squats, burpees and jumping jacks all words that mean something to you? If they do, then you do fitness workouts with an intensity that ranges between moderate and intensive. If you're going to be jumping around, moving up and down and sweating, you need a workout mat that can match the intensity of your training session.It needs to offer grip and durability and cope with all your perspiration too.
