The Fitness4Her Health and Fitness Product Review of:
Whether at home or the gym, when doing resistance-training or most any of the exercises included your women’s fitness program, it’s best for your protection to use an exercise mat. But with so many out there, you’ll have to determine your own needs before choosing the exercise or fitness mat that’s the right one for you.
Some mats are good for keeping in the home gym. I have one at home that is nice and thick, but I can’t fold it up and take it to the gym or any place else. I was looking for a nice mat that I could fold up or roll up and take with me.
That’s when I found the Folding Exercise Mat by TKO. This easy to fold mat is portable with handles on the side that make it easy to carry. As a personal trainer, I can use it at home, the gym or at even take it to a client’s house. It’s great for travel, too. Don’t laugh, but I always carry a portable mat for exercising in my hotel room and I would prefer to take a mat that could be sanitized after use.
I think the TKO Exercise Mat is perfect for any women’s exercise program. This exercise mat is a full 2-inch thick, built with long lasting foam covered with reinforced vinyl to protect knees and elbows when doing floor exercises. It even works for skinny people who need the extra buffering and it’s a full 6-foot in length — long enough to keep my feet and head off the floor.
One of the reasons that I liked this mat is the vinyl cover that makes it easy to wipe clean with soap and water. It’s also mildew-resistant and can be sanitized, unlike foam mats that aren’t covered.
Available at Walmart, Mercantila, Amazon.com, and The Exercise Mat Superstore, Comes in 2 feet by 6 feet or a little wider in 3 feet by 6 feet and the price varies by size and dealer.
I would recommend this mat to a friend who was looking for an exercise mat that was durable and portable.
