In addition to protecting your body from the hard floor, or to cushion specific body parts during workouts; workout mats also come with additional benefits when you use them. You can place them under exercise machines or even under weights; allowing you to protect the floor and the machines from damage.
They are a luxury to have for yoga and other workouts done on the floor, but they are also a protective layer for the body and equipment.
They are not necessary in any of your workouts, which we understand, but they are definitely something that you may want. Choosing the mat that provides not only a good cushion under your body but also the ability to reduce slippage if you become sweaty can reduce injuries from happening during workouts.
The workout mats provide quality assurance when you are placing them under exercise equipment, or over by the free weights in your home gym setup. We don’t advise you to bring this to the neighborhood coffee shop but exercising outside or bringing them to the porch to enjoy the cloudy Portland weather might be ideal.
