It was a gift for my son to use as a workout mat. didn't last a week before it started to tear and "flake". Small pieces of the mat started to separate along the edges. Would not recommend at all
The product claims it is .2 inches in thickness. It is not even close to that. At best, it is closer to .05 inches in thickness. Very disappointed. I cannot imagine putting a treadmill on this or any other piece of exercise equipment.
I use it for my Concept 2 Model D rower and it fits perfectly, with a tiny bit of room to spear on all sides. I got it like new via Amazon Warehouse, so it was roughly 15% cheaper. If new, it seems a bit over priced for what it is, since other competitors for similar prices have thicker and heavier duty mats. I do like that it is relatively light, since I can roll it up and put it away when I store my rower. If i were to just leave it on the floor all the time, I might opt for a more heavy duty mat. Quality wise, it seems pretty good, no damage on my floor even after hour long rowing sessions. My rower doesn't slide around while using intensely either.
Purpose: For an elliptical machine that sits on porcelain tile.
Seems pretty thick and durable. Its longer than I expected but that’s my fault for not measuring. It’ll do the job. My biggest complaint is the plastic/gas smell you get when opening it. I don’t often complain about this kind of stuff but this smell literally infiltrated my entire downstairs. I’m sure it will dissipate but hasn’t yet (left it overnight). Do yourself a favor and open it on a nice day and leave it outside for a couple of hours.
I purchased this mat a few weeks ago since I am now working out at home due to the pandemic. I've used it nearly every single day. I do a lot of HIIT and circuit training so I sweat a lot and didn't want to sweat all over my house or ruin my floors. I was using my yoga mat, but I was damaging it with my shoes. So I bought this and its exactly what I was hoping for. It is wider and slightly longer than a yoga mat, has a coated, textured surface that allows for gripping without my shoes getting stuck. It has some padding too so it absorbs some shock when doing jump squats, etc. It is easy to wipe clean and rolls up easily so I can store it in my closet when not in use.
Knocking a star, as I thought the mat would be a bit thicker (actually is about 2mm), and the item description failed to mention this. It's also a bit softer than I had thought, which is just a bit harder than the standard rubber drawer liners (which I use for my garage toolbox). The mat is suitable for my home gym needs, however may not be suitable for heavier benches / workout machines due to softness and thinness.
This is a great mat for basic exercise and equipment and a great bargain to get two of them for the price of one. I use it every day and have a recumbent exercycle and weights on top of the mat and the mat sits on carpet. I also use it for floor exercises. I purchased a larger and more expensive mat for an elliptical machine and I can't tell the difference in quality between the two. The mat with the exercycle does move forward about foot or so every couple of weeks but that is to be expected on carpet. Would definitely buy again as it can be used for many other functions.
I needed a mat to work out on.
Life is a game of inches, and sometimes it's the little things that count. We have an elliptical and I wanted to put a mat under it. The options for the mat were 6 feet or eight and a half in length. As the machine was 6 feet I figured it would be tight, but it would get it off the carpet. The mat arrived in good time, and after unboxing, unrolling and getting it under the unit it was short. Not much, just an inch. The mat was five feet eleven and more than two and half feet wide. I don't mind the extra width which was a couple of inches, but losing it on the length was irritating. I did manage to reposition and sort of stretch it as I could. It works, but it would be awesome to have had a six and a half foot length which would be perfect for many exercise machines. the next size up is too big for our room. Oh well, it does the job, but for 50 bucks I expected better.
6' is a perfectly length to protect my carpet from my bike training stand. It's nice dense material, precisely the same as the old Nordic Track mat I had back in the day. Very responsibly packaged, a box and then some plastic encasing the mat. I'm pleased.
Very impressed with the quality of this mat. It’s great for the spin bike, and it’s long enough that I can place weights down on the end without worrying about damaging the floor (or upsetting downstairs neighbours).
Works well under my Concept2 rower, protecting my flooring. It doesn't move or wrinkle and provides a stable platform for my workout. It is expensive but good quality.
