It's astounding that some companies are
selling exercise and Yoga mats for $100.00 and up. What's
even more astounding is that people actually buy them! I guess
it's understandable if it's for commercial use, but still...
As long as the mat is easy to clean, stays hygienic,
is durable, and offers a long life, it will stand up to the
most demanding of fitness programs. You really shouldn't need
to spend more than $20.00, or even $15.00, on an ideal mat.

mats, all under $20.00, that you can use for all kinds of
floor based exercise programs...
