So about those gym mats...


I was really excited about the gym mat that I ordered from walmart for my home workouts that I do on an almost daily basis before my son wakes up. I actually purchased two mats so I could cover a 6 x 6 foot area. They arrived very quickly and after pulling them out of the box, I realized they were fantastic.
 
They're light weight and fold up easily for storage.
 

Well, here they are after ONE workout:


They're not so fantastic after all.

Tomorrow, I'm returning them to walmart and will have to figure out an alternative. My wrists need some cushion for the sideways plank and the workout was so much easier on my back with this mat. It just didn't hold up to the trials of a Jillian Michaels video.

  2. Rubber gym mats are a great way to add style and comfort to a gym area. They also have very useful purposes as providing safety and comfort to an exercise area.
