I’m so excited to announce that our official Lindywell Pilates Powerhouse Mat is right here!
After greater than a decade of educating Pilates and struggling to discover a mat that checked all of the bins I used to be on the lookout for, and listening to from YOU about your battle too, I took issues into my very own palms and got down to create the most effective Pilates mat for each train and each physique.
Whereas my standards was easy, it seems it’s not simple to create a mat that isn’t solely high-quality, but in addition sustainable, eco-friendly and free of poisons like PVC, phthalates, and chloride.
You’ve been listening to me say this for years, however there’s a large distinction between Pilates mats and yoga mats, and for good purpose. Pilates mats have to be thicker in an effort to present enough cushion on your backbone and joints throughout rolling workout routines (ie: Rolling Like a Ball, Open Leg Rocker, the Roll Over) and on your bony landmarks throughout workout routines like Aspect Leg Lifts (assume hip bones) or Swimming (assume pubic bone). Whereas in yoga, it’s essential to be as linked to the earth as a lot as potential, subsequently yoga mats are very skinny with little or no padding.
Lots of you’ve been asking me for mat suggestions for years and I’ve by no means absolutely discovered the proper mat to advocate. So, with the assistance of my wonderful group right here at Lindywell we created the most effective Pilates mat available on the market for you.
My prime 5 standards for a premium, high-quality Pilates mat:
- Non-toxic and eco-friendly
- Supportive sufficient for rolling workout routines, but secure sufficient for balancing train
- Simple to scrub
- Stunning and one thing you WANT to maintain rolled up within the nook of your room
- Light-weight and straightforward to hold
This was no simple feat my pals. I can see why corporations lower corners. We needed to work HARD to discover a companion that may work with us to create a mat that meets all of those standards, particularly since sure supplies are arduous to come back by proper now.
We sorted by means of pattern after pattern and referenced a number of client opinions, testimonials, case research and studies to search out the most effective really feel and stability of assist and stability that we might discover.
We went by means of quite a few rounds of revisions to ensure the standard and sweetness was as much as our requirements.
I had you and your wants in thoughts each step of the best way. I now know why there may be such variation within the worth and high quality of mats within the market (and perceive what which means behind-the-scenes). With a view to produce merchandise which can be accountable, high-quality and eco-friendly, the associated fee to supply and the hurdles to leap are increased. We’ve achieved our best possible to be sure that our pricing is aggressive to different premium mats available on the market and we actually need this to be a product that helps you (pun supposed) for years to come back. (And Lindywell members – you’ll obtain a 20% low cost!)
