一. What Material Is Better For Fitness Mats:
Fitness mats made of different materials have different performance and experience. At present, the mat materials include NBR, TPE, PU rubber, and PVC, but these are all yoga mat materials and are not suitable for fitness.
Yoga is mainly based on static training and stretching. Yoga mats are generally soft and delicate to the touch;
Fitness is a high-intensity and large-scale running and jumping exercise, and the required mat requires excellent anti-slip and durability, as well as cushioning;
Professional Fitness Mat Materials Are:
1. Rubber material: spliced piece by piece, environmentally friendly material, good cushioning and shock absorption, wear resistance and tear resistance. Commercial gyms are used more;
2. High-density PVC: a whole large-sized mat, the surface layer is woven and strengthened, it can withstand high-intensity fitness, wear-resistant and does not drop slag, it is recommended for home indoor fitness.
The biggest difference between the materials is the weight. The weight of the 8mm yoga mat is about 2kg, while the weight of the 7mm thick fitness mat of the same specification is 5kg. It has a high-density structure and real materials. The heavy weight is tiled to fit the ground, and the mat does not shift even when jumping and running. So the price will be slightly higher.
二. What Size Is More Suitable For:
There are standard sizes of yoga mats, while fitness mats have various oversized sizes, which are selected according to the type of exercise and the size of the indoor space.
A variety of super size options, choose the right size according to the space in your home. Choose large or small, large-sized sports are more enjoyable, of course, according to the size of the space.
三. Is The Fitness Mat Thicker?
I don't know since when the quality of the cushion is related to the thickness. The thicker the better? In fact, it is not. Fitness exercise pays attention to the sense of support and stability. The thicker the cushion, the less stable it is, and many movements will not be done properly when the center of gravity is unstable. After testing, the thickness of the fitness mat is 6mm-8mm, and the thickness is moderate, the center of gravity will not be unstable, and at the same time, it can provide enough cushioning, shock absorption and noise reduction.
