1. What is the difference between yoga mats and fitness mats?

The main culprit that leads to confusion between fitness mats and yoga mats is e-commerce.


In order to maximize exposure, merchants add fitness mat keywords to the yoga mat product title, and add yoga mat keywords to the fitness mat. No matter which one you search for, they will all be mixed together in the end.


To choose a mat that truly suits you, you must first understand the difference between the two. Let me take you to re-understand yoga mats and fitness mats.


1. Different functions and features:

Yoga mat: Mainly used for practicing yoga, mainly for static stretching, relaxation, and gentle movements.


Fitness mat: It can be used for all fitness exercises, such as rope skipping, Insanity skipping, Zheng Duoyan aerobics and other aerobic exercises. It can also be used for various strength exercises such as push-ups, presses, and deadlifts.

2. Different materials

In order to adapt to different sports needs, their materials must also be different.


Yoga mats: There are many materials, but after so many years of updates and eliminations, the mainstream materials of yoga mats are mainly NBR, TPE, linen, PU, natural rubber, etc.



3. Different thickness and size

yoga mat

The thickness ranges from 1.5-8mm. Depending on the training level, the required thickness is also different. The thicker the yoga mat, the better.

The sizes are 173cm*61cm (suitable for heights within 170cm) and 183cm*61cm (suitable for heights below 180cm). There are many widened yoga mats on the market, which are suitable for use at home, but are not suitable for taking to a yoga studio to use with friends.

fitness mat

The thickness is generally 8-10mm, and gym floor mats are generally around 1cm-2.5cm;

The size is more flexible and can be purchased or customized according to needs.

In short, yoga mats and fitness mats are two completely different products. It is recommended not to mix them. In particular, yoga mats must not be used as fitness mats, but fitness mats can do some simple yoga movements. Be sure to distinguish them clearly when purchasing. .
