Working out at home has its perks. You can exercise whenever you want, wearing whatever you want and with zero judgements from anybody. However, unlike the gym, you may not have all the equipment you need. And one basic necessity is a yoga mat.
Amazon’s best-selling yoga mat is by BalanceForm, and it’s extra thick, so whether you’re doing planks no your forearms, stretching or actually doing yoga, it’s extra comfortable.
The yoga mat has more 47,000 reviews five-star reviews that call it “super comfortable” and a “great value.” It regularly retails for $49.95, but for a limited time, it’s 55 percent off — get it for $22.56.

“When the gym does reopen, I will be bringing this mat with me so I’m not using theirs, which may or may not be cleaned after every use. I am very pleased with this mat, and no longer have an excuse not to exercise at home,” a reviewer wrote.
One thing to note: Some reviewers thought the extra thickness made it harder to balance in certain yoga poses, while others didn’t notice a difference.
“I used it with a towel on it, so I can’t attest to how slippery it is without. It certainly didn’t slide around on the floor; you have to actually pull at it to move it. The thickness was just right for my pilates exercises,” one Amazon reviewer wrote, who added they’d definitely buy it again.
Whether you need extra padding for working out on a hardwood floor or want to prevent sweating on the carpet, this yoga mat is a solid buy — and thousands of Amazon shoppers agree.
