A little disappointed!
I bought this to use on my conservatory tiled floor after giving up the gym. When using the mat I found the floor to be very hard and will have to buy some mats to go underneath. Also the mat kept rolling up when trying to use it and had to wedge it down with a chair which proved awkward when doing leg raises with a gym ball. Perhaps with wear it may not want to roll up. I tried using the gym ball on the mat to avoid bursting the ball on tiles but found the mat too spongy when trying to lean back on the ball. I do like the elasticated straps and handle that keep it rolled up. More mat purchases at JL I fear!!!

This mat is nice and long so that feet don't slip off the end during some moves (so good balance can be kept), and also it's very well padded so comfortable.
The only drawback which isn't that bad, is that it would be better if a little wider to make it a bit better when doing excersises like press ups. But it's only a small thing really - overall it does the job.

Quality Fitness Mat
Bought this fitness mat for pilates and it is really great. Good long length, nice thickness and rolls up neatly with elastic closers and carry strap. Good quality and hopefully will last.

Perfect mat for yoga and very reasonable. No need to spend anymore for the expensive ones.

Having ready the other reviews I was confident I would be happy with this fitness mat. It looked good initially and it cushioned my knees well during my fitness class. However, after just one use it had lots of dents in it where I had knelt on it. Now after several uses it is covered in dents - I am not heavy! Am I the only person who has had this problem?

Thick, comfy and perfect for home fitness. I have used it for ab work, yoga and even put my rowing machine on it to protect the floor. No problems to report and would definitely recommend to others.
