I’m not sure which exercise mat to buy? What is the difference between the YOGA 3.0 Mat and the CARDIO Exercise Mat?

It just depends on what kind of exercises you are planning to use the mat for….

CARDIO Mat (Large Exercise Mat):  If you are interested in doing high intensity home-based cardio workouts with shoes (like P90X, Insanity, 30 Day Shred, Rushfit etc) our Square36 CARDIO mat is the mat for you! This Exercise mat is a 6’x6′, 1/8″ thick heavy duty rubber, weighing a whopping 40lb!!! It’s perfect for intense home-based cardio workouts and will take any and all the punishment you will put it through:)

YOGA 3.0 MAT (Large Yoga Mat): The Square36 YOGA 3.0 mat is specifically intended for yoga and stretching. Its soft, yet dense, 1/4″ thick foam surface makes it ideal for yoga and stretching and use without shoes. Our large yoga mat’s massive 6′ x 6′ size will never make you feel restricted by the yoga and stretching poses you do.  You will never feel restricted to the edges of a regular sized yoga mat.  Our YOGA 3.0 large yoga mat is not intended for intense cardio workouts nor use with shoes.

TOGETHER:  If you are interested in doing intense cardio workouts and want some extra cushioning, to further dampen noise and seek premium absorption for your joints, you can put our YOGA 3.0 large yoga mat under the CARDIO exercise mat for the ultimate workout surface!

I am only interested in a mat for yoga, which mat should I buy?

Our Square36 YOGA 3.0 large yoga mat is perfect for yoga and stretching. It’s 6 mm thick, soft foam surface makes it ideal for yoga and stretching. For floor exercises this large yoga mat can also be folded in half for extra cushioning to use on hardwood floors, then unfolded to provide you with the stability you need for a regular yoga routine.

Our CARDIO Exercise Mat is a durable, rubber exercise mat and is not intended for yoga. The CARDIO Exercise mat may not provide you will enough cushioning for yoga, and it’s rough textured surface is great for traction for Cardio workouts but not ideal for yoga.

My CARDIO Exercise mat has a rubber smell. How long will it take the smell to dissipate?

When you first unwrap the CARDIO Exercise Mat it will have a rubber smell. The smell of the mat is based on the freshly pressed rubber being packaged right after production. The process of producing the Cardio Mat is no different than that of gym flooring or children’s playground tiles. If the mat is left unrolled, the smell will dissipate within approximately 2 week.  If you can leave the mat unrolled in a covered area outside, this will speed up the process even further.

What type of flooring do the mats work best on? Carpet, Hardwood, Tile, Laminate etc?

A flat, hard surface is the most ideal surface for either of our Square36 mats. The Cardio mat works great on carpet, hardwood, laminate, tile, cork, cement or a rug. The CARDIO mat weights 40lbs and will not bunch or move on most carpets. Our YOGA 3.0 mat can be used on carpet as well, but it might migrate slightly, similar to other yoga mats, because of it’s light foam surface.
