3.The Difference Between Yoga Mat And Fitness Mat

3.1 The Difference Between Materials

Gym mat material: NBR, PVC foam, EVA

Yoga mat material: NBR, PVC foam, TPE foam, tpe double layer, linen pvc, flax tpe, flax rubber, pure linen, natural rubber

The biggest difference between materials is the price, NBR and EVA material is much lower than other materials, which is why these materials are used in the gym mat.

There is a more important reason is that the gym mat is generally thicker and the material used is relatively more. If TPE rubber is used, the cost price of a mat will be more than 500 yuan.


3.2 Difference in thickness

Thickness of fitness mat: 10mm, 12mm, 15mm, 20mm or more

Thickness of yoga mat: 2.5mm, 3mm, 4mm, 5mm, 6mm, 7mm, 8mm, 10mm

Why is the difference between the thickness of the yoga mat and the gym mat so big?

  1. the main function of the fitness mat is protection, cushioning, and the thickness is too thin then can not play a cushioning role, resulting in injury or discomfort.
  2. yoga mat main function is: anti slip, protection, stability. Yoga mat is too thick, many beginners and even veterans will have the phenomenon of instability, which loses the substantive role of the yoga mat.

So the yoga mat can not be too thick, the gym mat can not be too thin!


3.3 Size difference

Yoga mats are available in strict standard sizes 610 × 1730 (international standard); 610 × 1830 (lengthened); 800 × 1830 (widened); 1200 × 1830 (double). Fitness mats are very free of all sizes, there are no strict restrictions, the basic is with the manufacturer.

4.Yoga Mat Size Selection

Yoga mat: non-slip, protection The ultimate goal is to make yoga more precise and stable to achieve the original purpose of the gym mat.

Fitness mat: cushioning, protection The most purpose is to reduce the exercise buffer force to protect the joints and thus play a protective role.

Different effects lead to two kinds of mats completely different, different thickness, different materials.
