I run on my machine 4-5 times a week and this is my third treadmill and 4th or 5th mat. I just got it but, this is a very durable mat and far more dense than any other mat I have had. Unlike the other one I bought, you cannot see indents in the mat where the treadmill wheels sit. My treadmill is on the second floor and I am very happy with the noise reduction. The mat has done wonders to keep the carpet from being damaged. The selling point for me on this mat is that is made in America and made in the USA was good enough for me. I would highly recommend this to any treadmill owner. If you're looking for a serious treadmill mat that will last you, this is the one.
