I just got done doing a 30 min. Pilate routine on this mat, It just came today. I was really good, better than my flat mat, but..... It came in a clear plastic bag, no info at all, no name brand, no care info, nothing. Also, It is only about 1 inch thick, not 2 inches as stated. I was a bit upset when I saw it at first, but decided to give it a try. If it was 2 inches, I am sure it would be a dream, so yes, I am a bit dissapointed. But it is nice, I would recommend it, but I think the price, for what it is, is a bit much, but I am not going to send it back. I did a search on line about this mat before I bought it, and yes, Overstock has it cheaper than anywhere else, but I really would have appreciated some care info.
Good for exercises the demand a straight and narrow approach. But for all those which require extended arm or leg positioning, the mat is imperfect and balance needs to be readjusted. All my floors are marble, so I was really looking forward to being able to do lots of the diagonal stretches and twists I was able to do on a studio mat [when I lived near a studio]. It is a lot better than nothing and certainly a good value for the price, but a triple wide would be universally useful.
I am not happy with this overpriced mat. It is much thinner and offers less support than expected, and doesn't seem like real memory foam. The cover is NOT REMOVABLE and washable like the description says... I am stuck with it because my dogs immediately tracked dirt on it so I can't return it, plus the shipping cost would be prohibitive.
I received this yesterday, March 3rd -- it came quickly and I used it this morning. Very, very comfortable for those exercises on the floor - stomach crunches, etc. I looked every where I could think of but Overstock is the only place I found one that is this thick. It is really great and I would recommend this to friends or enemies. Thanks much Overstock!
The quick delivery of this product was outstanding. Haven't used it yet. It looks good and appears it will work just fine. The only noticeable fault is the thickness. It's definitely not 2 inches which I had originally read when purchasing. It's 1 inch but this may be insignificant.... time will tell. For the money this is a decent product.
