What is the difference between the Square36 YOGA Mats and the Square36 CARDIO Mats?

CARDIO Black Label Mats (Large Exercise Mats): If you are interested in doing high intensity home-based cardio workouts with shoes like P90X, Insanity, 30 Day Shred, Rushfit, HIT, Max 30 etc., then the any of the Square36 CARDIO Black Label mats are the exercise mats for you! These large exercise mats have a dense, 5mm thick, foam base that is coated with a proprietary heavy-duty rubber top layer. Our cardio mats comes in 4′ x 6′, 6’ x 6′, and 8′ x 6′ sizes and are specifically designed for intense home-based cardio workouts with shoes. Please note: The underside of the  CARDIO Black Label can be used for light yoga and stretching, but if you are serious about yoga and stretching, we recommend our YOGA series mats (see below).

YOGA MATS (Large Yoga Mats): The Square36 YOGA series mats are specifically intended for yoga and stretching. The Square36 Yoga mats are 6mm thick and come in 4′ x 6′, 6’ x 6′, and 8′ x 6′ sizes. Please note: The YOGA 3.0 large yoga mats are for yoga and are not intended for intense cardio workouts with shoes.

TOGETHER: When not being used for yoga, the YOGA series mats can be used as an underlay for the CARDIO Black Label mats for enhanced absorption, cushioning and noise dampening.

I am doing an intense cardio routine like Insanity, P90X, Rushfit, 30 Day Shred etc. Which mat would be best for such high intensity workouts?

The Square36 CARDIO Black Label mats are specifically intended for vigorous home-based cardio workouts and fitness routines like P90X and Insanity.


*Our yoga series mats are not recommended for intense cardio workouts*

Will the Cardio Mat dampen noise between apartment or house floors?

There are many variables when it comes to noise reduction, and we do not make the claim that the Cardio Mat will eliminate the noise associated with jumping around one’s living room. However, the Cardio Mat is made with dense foam, which does absorb impact and therefore will absorb some noise.

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

The Square36 YOGA mats are perfect for yoga and stretching.  They come in 4′ x 6′, 6′ x 6′, and 8′ x 6′ sizes and are 6 mm thick. They are made with a proprietary foam blend that is non-toxic, and soft yet dense. Some people like to fold our large yoga mats in half for extra cushioning, however we don’t recommend that you store the mats folded for long periods of time or crease damage may occur. The Square36 Yoga mats are perfect for home gyms, mediation rooms, living rooms and for DVD or online home-based yoga routines.

I am having problems placing my order, what should I do?

We apologize if you experience any issues when trying to place your order. Please contact us at info@square36.com and we will do our best to solve the issue.

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

A solid, level, surface is ideal for all Square36 mats. Sometimes using the CARDIO mat over carpet can cause it to shift. If this is the case, we recommend using  Carpet Anchor anti-slip-on-carpet pads. Carpet Anchor pads will provide traction on the bottom of the Cardio mat and limit the mat from shifting on carpet.

How should I store my Square36 mat?

The Square36 mats should be kept in the rolled position or left flat in your designated workout area. Folding any of the mats can cause creases and damage over time.

How long will it take to receive my Square36 mat?

Square36 mats are shipped via standard delivery, which can take up to one week from the date of the order. Certain exceptions may apply, such as Christmas time and promotional sales, where delivery may take longer. We will always do our best to get your order shipped out to you as fast as possible.

Is Square36 available in other colors?

The Square36 CARDIO and YOGA mats are only available in black.

How can I clean my CARDIO and/or YOGA 3.0 Mat?

Both mats can be cleaned using a soft cloth and warm water mixed with a few drops of mild dish soap. Please use a product that does not contain bleach, as bleach may discolor the mats. Use a towel to wipe dry. Make sure the mat is dried thoroughly on both sides before use.

For a quick clean of any of the CARDIO mats you could also use a vacuum, broom and/or a mop.

What is Carpet Anchor?
Carpet Anchors are spiked, adhesive pads that can be placed on the bottom of any of the Cardio mats in order to limit the mat from shifting on carpet. We recommend the 8 Pack Carpet Anchor Pads to reduce shifting of any of the cardio mats (6’x4′, 6’x6′ and 8’x6′) on top of carpet. The pads will not eliminate shifting, but will provide traction to reduce shifting.
Are Carpet Anchors Removable?

Once applied to the bottom of the cardio mat the carpets anchors are permanent and are not removable.  Please make sure you plan on using the mat solely on carpet before placing the pads on the mat.

Which Carpet Anchor Packs Are Recommended For Each Size Of The Cardio Mats?
4’x6’ Cardio Mat = 8 Pack Carpet Anchor
6’x6’ Cardio Mat = 8 Pack Carpet Anchor
8’x6’ Cardio Mat = 8 Pack Carpet Anchor
We recommend the 8 Pack Carpet Anchor pads to limit shifting of any of the cardio mats. The more pads you place on the bottom of the mat, the less the mat will shift on top of carpet.
What Kind Of Carpet Do The Anchors Work Best On?

The Carpet Anchor Pads Are Designed To Limit The Cardio Mats Or A Rug From Shifting On Top Of Carpet. The Pads Work Best On Medium Pile Carpet. They Aren’t Ideal For Berber, Commercial Grade Low Pile Carpet Or Plush High Pile Carpet. The Length Of the Tongs Of The Carpet Anchor Pads Work Best With Medium Pile Carpet.
