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

Square36 Cardio Mats (Cardio Black Label and Cardio Gray Matter) are intended for general home-based cardio, fitness, conditioning and strength training workouts with shoes. Square36 Cardio Mats have an ultra-durable natural rubber top surface that is specifically designed to be used with shoes. The top layer is supported by a dense foam bottom layer made with premium non-toxic PER foam. Our Cardio Mats are perfect for home gyms or living room workouts for use with home workout programs like Insanity, P90X, HIIT, TAM etc.

Square36 Yoga Series mats, are simply giant yoga mats. Our yoga mats are made with the absolute highest grade least toxic materials we can source, using the most sustainable manufacturing practices available. Our yoga mats are only intended for yoga and stretching without shoes. Working out on our yoga mats with shoes will cause surface abrasion damage.

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

The Square36 Cardio Black Label mats and Gray Matter Cardio Mats are specifically intended for vigorous home-based cardio workouts and fitness routines like P90X, Insanity, TAM or any other workout programs with shoes.

*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 all noise associated with jumping around one’s living room. However, the Cardio Mat is made with dense foam and rubber, 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 Series 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?

Hard surface flooring is ideal for all the Square36 mats (hardwood, tile or cement). Our cardio and yoga mats do work on carpet, but can shift a bit. We recommend our larger sized cardio mats for use on carpet, as the larger size and weight will shift less than the small sized mats.

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 Mats are available in black, gray and pink colors. Our yoga mats are 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 if I decide that my Square36 mat is not for me?

We stand behind our products 100%. All of our full priced CARDIO and YOGA mats come with a 60 day money-back guarantee. Please see our Return Policy at the bottom of the page for details.
