When you're working out, exercise mats can help cushion the impact of your exercise and help you be more comfortable. That will encourage you to work out longer and harder. We have a large selection of exercise mats, in many different colors and thicknesses. Exercise mats are an inexpensive, portable way to make your workout more pleasant.
There are many types of rubber mats for home gyms, as well as foam mats and other materials to cushion your workout, lower the impact on joints and allow you to comfortably complete floor exercises. Puzzle mats are great for padding any area of the gym, from a few feet to the entire floor. Puzzle pieces fit together, allowing you to shape the mat to any room or workout area. For just a little padding, consider workout mats, stretching mats and other types of mats that suit the activities you are doing in your home gym. Puzzle mats, yoga mats and other mats are available in anti-microbial materials that help keep down germs that often spread, even in the home gym. These materials also resist bad smells associated with frequent workouts and sweating.
Acupuncture mats are one of the many types available, and give your body the therapeutic benefits of the ancient art of acupuncture to relieve stress and pain associated with sore muscles. Pilates mats are much like yoga mats, and are a perfect accompaniment to exercise balls, medicine balls and other such workouts. Aerobic rubber mats for home gyms cushion the blows your body receives while doing high intensity aerobic exercises. This helps protect the feet, ankles, knees, hips and internal organs. Foam mats are another option, thick and durable for floor exercises. Foam and rubber materials protect the gym floor and can prevent nicks and cracks to equipment, such as dropped dumbbells. Rubber mats and foam mats are essential for areas where children are exercising. They can protect heads, delicate developing spines and young, growing joints.
Many rubber mats for home gyms come with straps or carrying cases so the mat can easily be rolled or folded to carry along with you. This is also a nifty way to keep the floor clear when you aren't working out. When you travel, simply bring your mat along with you and use it to exercise in the floor of the hotel room. Rubber and foam mats give you more options for the types of exercises you can do in the home gym. Flexibility is a key aspect of fitness, but it is difficult to do all the stretching exercises you need to do on a hard floor. The mat might be just large enough to sit or lie on, or the mat can cover several square feet or the entire surface of the floor. This makes an attractive surface, as colors are available ranging from black to blue and red. Colorful striped mats are excellent for children.
Rubber mats also make the home gym look inviting and professional. If you want your home gym to have the same look and feel as the high end commercial gyms downtown, add colorful rubber mats. When stocking the home gym, some equipment may not need to rest on the rubber mat. Read the guide included in your mat from the manufacturer and the weight of the machines in your gym. Make sure the weight of the gym equipment (plus your body weight when you're on the equipment) will not exceed the recommended weight that the mat will support.
