Well the purpose is to have a mat and a mat is mat (soft or firm) and I have carpet in the living room if I don't wana use the mat but thanks for the feedback! :D
Hey Coach -- I am thinking of just ordering the whole Insanity deluxe package and getting this mat with it and I am just wondering can this replace a normal yoga mat?
Yes it can Jesse. It's a bit firmer though, so it depends on how you like your yoga mat (soft or firm).
Coach, I actually put the interlocking mats on my area carpet! I think I will check out a carpet mat to see if that'll add enough cushioning because I do need more than just the carpet itself. Thanks for the idea!
Coach, I had purchased interlocking thick mats that go under treadmills, etc. for cushioning to protect my knees and joints with all the jumping in Insanity. I used it during my two rounds and it works, but...because they interlock after time they separate apart and I'm constantly trying to keep them together. Have you used the plyo mat? Do you think it would be comparable cushion wise to what I'm using and is it larger that a standard yoga mat? I want to make sure I have enough room to do the moves. As always, I appreciate your feedback!
Hey Lisa, I haven't used the plyo mat because I workout on carpet. I used to workout in our living room which has permanent carpet. Then when I moved to our study, which has wood floors, I researched quite a bit and decided that carpet still made the most sense. I went to a carpet store and got a big section of carpet and had them put a border on it to make it look like a rug (rather than leave the edges rough). And then I got a carpet mat (not pad -- mat), which looks like that grippy rubber material that you put in drawers to keep stuff from sliding. The thickness of the carpet mat plus the carpet is just right for me, and there are no seams, and I don't have to worry about moisture getting under it.
