What kind of mat is best for exercise?

We Sell Mats offers a variety of mats suitable for exercise. One popular option is our EVA foam mats. These mats provide excellent cushioning and support, making them ideal for various exercises, including yoga, pilates, aerobics, and floor exercises. They are designed to absorb impact and provide a comfortable surface for workouts while protecting your joints.


What is the best thickness for an exercise mat?

The best thickness for an exercise mat depends on the type of exercise you'll be doing and your personal preferences. We Sell Mats offers exercise mats in different thicknesses, typically ranging from 3/8 inch to 1 inch. Thicker mats provide more cushioning and are often preferred for high-impact activities or exercises that require more support, such as martial arts or gymnastics. Thinner mats, around 3/8 inch, are suitable for activities like yoga or pilates where a firm and stable surface is desired.


Is there a difference between a yoga mat and an exercise mat?

Yes, there is a difference between a yoga mat and an exercise mat. Yoga mats are specifically designed for yoga practice and typically offer a thinner profile and a stickier surface. They provide good traction, stability, and grip to support yoga poses. On the other hand, exercise mats are more versatile and can be used for a variety of exercises beyond yoga, such as aerobics, stretching, or core workouts. They often offer more cushioning and support compared to yoga mats, making them suitable for a wider range of activities.
