How to choose an exercise mat
• The thickness of your exercise mat is essential. A thick mat will be more comfortable, providing extra cushion to your workout. A ½ inch mat is a popular choice.
• Consider what you will most likely be using the mat for. While a thicker mat is preferred for high intensity fitness routines, it might make you lose your balance. If you’re a yoga enthusiast, you might want to consider a thinner mat.
• Generally speaking, exercise mats tend to be long and thin. If you’re particularly tall, ensure your exercise mat is long enough to fit your entire body while you exercise.
