This is the best exercise mat ever. No more pain in my arthritic hips when I have to exercise while lying on my side. Mine didn't have an odor as some reviewers mentioned and the memory foam is perfectly resilient after 2 weeks of daily use. The only issue I had was that it was a little hard on my injured back to roll up when I was finished (I'm not supposed to lean over if I can avoid it). So I just lifted it onto the bed before rolling it up - it's not too heavy to do that easily. Worth every penny!
I have fibromyalgia mostly in my hips and thighs and was looking for an exercise mat that I could use and not be in pain while doing floor exercises. This one is wonderful! No more pain while on the floor! I would highly recommend this memory foam mat.
The product is made very well, it is deffinitely soft and flexible. It is very nice that it rolls up and is easily carried by handles that velcro together. I do find it hard to use as an excercise matt due to thickness and stability. It comes in handy for a sleepover, or if you have elderly parents with back problems or arthritis, this will be great for them to sit or lay on, for extra cushioning. I would have to say it was very pricey, but I guess when anything has the words "memory foam" in it, the price goes higher.
I purchased this Praxis Memory Foam Exercise Mat for use of abdominal and back exercises for my Dad who is 89 and myself. It is extremely soft and pliable with a washable cover. The cushioning is very thick and allows you to do all your floor exercises with great ease. It is well worth the price and should last for many years.
I bought this as more of a cushion mat to lay on since it's memory foam. It is actually quite comfortable. Of course, I would like to say I'll exercise on it, but more than likely it will be more of a sleep mat. I taped the straps to the back and keep it stored behind the couch. My toddler takes naps on it and so do I . We were without electric for a night during a snow storm, so my baby and I slept on the mat on the floor near the wood stove. It was quite comfortable.
I am very disappointed with this purchase. I have 2" and 3" memory foam mattress toppers - both purchased from Overstock - which I was very pleased with. However, the quality of the foam in this product is very poor. In particular, the density cannot even compare; therefore, the comfort level is not even close. I noticed that one reviewer said that her initial purchase had inferior foam compared to one her friend bought through Overstock. She received a replacement and is now pleased. That may be what I have experienced. I would not recommend this product. - again, very disappointing.
I bought this to use with my Wii Fit, and it works great for that. But it also works great when I throw it on the couch to sleep there when hubby is snoring (which is most nights)! I've also used it for my son's physical therapy and to sleep. It is really awesome!
This is an excellent mat! The memory foam keeps you from bottoming out or striking the floor, as other foam mats allow. It does have a handy, built in carrying strap, which is great if you need to carry a mat to a class or other location. I don't take mine from home, but it is great to know that if I ever do, I can find the strap. It seems kind of big to be able to transport, but I think the payoff of a superior mat out-weighs the inconvenience of traveling with a larger mat.
I purchased this for aerobics class because I was having issues with my hip. This is definitely a great product. It provides support while exercising and it is the first mat I have ever used where you can not feel the floor digging into you. It is so comfortable that I have slept on it several times. Almost everyone in my class has asked if they can lie down on it to see how it feels. I have thrown all of my old mats away, this one is a keeper.
I have two mats and after a year of daily use I am very unhappy with them. The Praxis material is not supposed to have a memory but it does therefore, the quality is not as it is represented. If you are not going to use them on a daily basis for exercise they will be fine but again, for long-term use they do not hold up and now have high and low spots all over them.
