Exercise Mats for Physical Therapy

Everyone who has ever had to go to the physical therapist knows how painful, yet necessary PT can be, and doing it at home can be a real challenge – unless you happen to have some soft, supportive, and accessible exercise mats to make the hard work bearable. Recovery happens faster if you stick to your PT plan, and having a way to do it at home increases the number of opportunities you have to do it successfully, seven days a week.

Martial Arts Studio Practice At Home

Why bother installing martial arts flooring mats at home if you have a great studio at which to practice? If you are browsing our website, you obviously know why, but let us help just a bit. How many days of practice does it take for something to become a habit? Grandma would tell you thirty. It is not a magic number, but the point is that the more regularly you do something, the more likely you are to stick with it. Sure, once or twice a week at the studio with an experienced instructor is essential, but think about bringing that home, as it were, to your own home martial arts studio.  Continue reading “Martial Arts Studio Practice At Home”

Why Do I Need a Yoga Mat Anyway?

Sad but true: there are many sports equipment companies who try to get you to buy sport “accessories” that you really do not need in order to be able to do the activity, but yoga mats absolutely do not fall in that category. If you have ever tried to do yoga on a hardwood floor, maybe even a carpeted surface, you know the obstacles you run into – sore tailbone, strained wrists, and the risk of slipping. Nothing heels a downward dog faster than slipping. The good news is that you don’t actually have to worry about any of this with a really good yoga mat beneath you.

Too Much Sitting? Tumbling Mats to the Rescue!

If your kids have not started back to school, they soon will be, and the best thing you can have ready for them when they get home is a healthy snack and some tumbling mats. (“Huh?”) You heard us correctly – something to hold them over until dinner and something to help them maintain an active lifestyle rather than crashing on the couch or bed with an electronic entertainment device. We are definitely not anti-electronics, but one thing is for certain: when kids have the option to be active or sedentary, it’s far too easy to choose the latter. But we all know where that road leads. Continue reading “Too Much Sitting? Tumbling Mats to the Rescue!”

The Heck is a Cheese Mat?!

Cheese mats, or incline mats, are not made of a creamy dairy product, nor are they good on crackers with a nice cab sauv. Cheese mats do not have Swiss holes in them, nor should they be used to bait mouse traps. See where this is going? They have nothing to do with cheese. But they are shaped like a wedge, so somewhere along the line, someone decided that wedge was a wedge of cheese and the gymnastics apparatus got its bizarre name. But since they’re an integral part of a gymnastics practice, we, of course, have them in stock, and not in the refrigerated section. Continue reading “The Heck is a Cheese Mat?!”
