I’m so excited to announce that our official Lindywell Pilates Powerhouse Mat is right here!
After greater than a decade of instructing Pilates and struggling to discover a mat that checked all of the packing containers I used to be in search of, and listening to from YOU about your wrestle too, I took issues into my very own fingers and got down to create the perfect Pilates mat for each train and each physique.
Whereas my standards was easy, it seems it’s not simple to create a mat that’s not 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 huge distinction between Pilates mats and yoga mats, and for good purpose. Pilates mats should be thicker to be able to present ample 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 (suppose hip bones) or Swimming (suppose pubic bone). Whereas in yoga, it’s vital to be as linked to the earth as a lot as doable, due to this fact yoga mats are very skinny with little or no padding.
A lot of you might have been asking me for mat suggestions for years and I’ve by no means totally discovered the right mat to advocate. So, with the assistance of my wonderful staff right here at Lindywell we created the perfect 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 steady sufficient for balancing train
- Straightforward to wash
- Stunning and one thing you WANT to maintain rolled up within the nook of your room
- Light-weight and simple to hold
This was no simple feat my associates. I can see why firms 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 pattern after pattern and referenced a number of client evaluations, testimonials, case research and experiences to search out the perfect really feel and steadiness of help and stability that we might discover.
We went by quite a few rounds of revisions to verify 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 value and high quality of mats within the market (and perceive what which means behind-the-scenes). With the intention to produce merchandise which are accountable, high-quality and eco-friendly, the fee to provide and the hurdles to leap are larger. We’ve completed our best possible to ensure 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.
