A Super Thick, Super Cheap Yoga Mat For Hardwood Floor Wimps

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Today's pick comes from Racked NY Associate Editor Nicola Fumo.

ProSource Extra Thick High Density Mat, $21 at Amazon

"Yoga mat" is my blanket term for any kind of non-towel item you put on ground between hardwood floors and your exercising body, but honestly I don't do yoga on this thing. I'm more into subjecting myself to Jillian Michaels videos at home when I'm too lazy to get to the gym and this mat has been instrumental in softening the blow of crunches, push-ups, and even jumping jacks for my at-home sweat seshes. At just $21, it didn't impact my wallet much, either.
