Tone Fitness High Density Exercise Mat Review
The Tone Fitness High Density Exercise Mat has been ergonomically designed to provide the perfect balance between comfort and practicality. The foam material is just thick enough to provide comfort while not still allowing for stability and sturdiness. Additionally, the moisture resistant skin means that the mat can be easily wiped down after use.
One of the biggest issues with exercise mats is that they accumulate sweat and subsequent smells, but that is not an issue with the Tone Fitness Exercise Mat. At 68 x 24 inches, the Tone Fitness Exercise Mat is the ideal size for any kind of yoga, pilates or stretching exercises.

Is the Tone Fitness High Density Exercise Mat Worth Buying?
While the Tone Fitness Exercise Mat is called an exercise mat, it is probably more accurate to describe it as a stretching mat. Exercise mats can be used during more vigorous exercise routines and, unfortunately, the Tone Fitness Exercise Mat is not perfect for these types of exercise.
The material does not have enough grip to stay in place for cardio related movements and the thickness of the mat has been designed with body weight in mind and not moving trainers. These more energetic exercises are likely to result in a damaged mat and lead to unhappy users.
However, if we consider the Tone Fitness Exercise Mat to be a yoga, pilates or stretching mat it becomes entirely more desirable.
The mat is just thick enough to provide a pleasant level of comfort even when used on hardwood floors, making it much more enjoyable for those looking to do exercises that require lying on your back. The mat is comfortable without feeling spongy; it strikes the perfect balance.
At 68 x 24 inches, it is a decent size and should accommodate most users. The materials grip, while insufficient for heavy duty stepping exercises, is perfect for yoga or stretching and there is minimal movement on the ground. The moisture resistant design of the material is also particularly welcome as it allows for quick and simple wipe-downs to avoid odours building up.
For the casual user, the Tone Fitness Exercise Mat is an ideal accessory. Those looking for a more heavy-duty exercise mat will need to pay more, but for the rest of us, the Tone Fitness Exercise Mat offers very good value for money.
