Yoga Mat Envy

You know you’ve got a great yoga mat when your instructor asks to look at it and says, “That’s really nice! Where’d you get it?” You happily tell her that you bought it from this place online called We Sell Mats. Then you tell her how little you paid for it. She freaks out a little bit and says, “What was the name of that website again??” Continue reading “Yoga Mat Envy”

A New Trade Show Staffer: Your Floor

If you’re one of the vendors whose trade show booth I, as a consumer, will be attending this year, what makes you so special that I should make an effort to put your booth on my route? Face it, my time is limited and there’s no way I’m going to get to all the booths I want to see, so convince me that yours is worth my time. How are you going to do that? One suggestion: make me comfortable with a soft, anti-fatigue flooring made of EVA foam. Continue reading “A New Trade Show Staffer: Your Floor”

Tumbling Mats for Every Activity

Tumbling mats are the foundation for all kinds of activities, not just gymnastics. They can be play mats, cheer mats, even wrestling mats.

They should be thick enough to soften falls, supportive enough to ensure stability, and affordable enough that everyone can get them. Our tumbling mats meet all these requirements, so go ahead and grab yours now! Continue reading “Tumbling Mats for Every Activity”

Floors for Fitness

Fitness flooring is different from the flooring in you living room. It’s different from the floors at the mall and in the locker room. Fitness flooring is different because it needs to meet specific needs that frankly, you don’t have in your living room or the mall. When you’re using free weights or doing plyometrics or HIIT, your floor needs to be able to take it. A nice berber or ceramic tiles aren’t going to work. Continue reading “Floors for Fitness”

Martial Arts for Keeping Up

Winter is off-season for a handful of sports, but it’s an excellent time to pick up martial arts if you’re not already into them. If you’re into a sport that isn’t really suited for outdoor practice in the snow or cold weather, you’ve got to find some way to stay on top of your game while you’re waiting for the sun to come back out. A lot of sports work pretty specific muscles and you need a particular range of motion for them. So, in order to stay on top of that kind of stuff, you need an indoor exercise routine that provides the kind of whole-body workout that can be difficult to achieve with a typical gym routine. Enter martial arts. Continue reading “Martial Arts for Keeping Up”

How Yoga Changes the Mind (and Body)

“If yoga were taught in K-12, there would be peace on Earth.” That’s quite the statement, but a real one spoken by a yoga teacher at her evening class. Is she right? We have no doubt. When a child is taught from a very young age how to focus her mind, how to control his body, and how to concentrate on breathing as an empowering and calming tool, and how to see the intrinsic value in others, it’s impossible to think otherwise. Try it for yourself: get your kids a yoga mat and a good teacher and watch. Continue reading “How Yoga Changes the Mind (and Body)”

You need to be able to stand on it for hours at a time without becoming sore or fatigued.

Playing for Growth

Toddlers and young children develop and improve gross motor skills mostly through play, and one of the most fun ways of playing is with some fun gymnastics equipment like a tumbling barrel. Or maybe a cheese mat. Or even just a tumbling mat. All three encourage kids to think creatively, be active, and in the meantime, unbeknownst to them, develop crucial motor skills.
