3. WellnessMats FitnessMat
You will not find a more comfortable mat than FitnessMats by WellnessMats. The half inch of support is made with the company’s proprietary Advanced Polyurethane Technology that suspends body weight and reduces impact. This makes the mat perfect for ground work — ab exercises, stretching, and higher-impact moves like burpees. It’s also extra heavy, pretty much guaranteeing it’ll stay put during intense bouts of exercise.
Price: $140, amazon.com
Drawbacks: It doesn’t roll up like a yoga mat — if you need to transport it, your best bet is the 5-foot, 9-pound MobileMat that folds in the middle.
