If you met my husband you would learn pretty quickly that he is a jack-of-all trades. He is a talented actor, adjunct professor, fitness instructor and soon to be personal trainer. My husband teaches over 3 fitness classes a week and his yoga mat shows it. I have been looking for a high quality, slip-proof mat that will last for about a year to no avail. Thankfully a few weeks ago I ran across the MERRITHEW site and found the Supreme Traction Mat and it is indeed, supreme.

I am so grateful I was able to review the Supreme Traction Mat from MERRITHEW as it is unlike any floor mat I have purchased before. My husband needed a mat that wouldn’t move or slip when he did his Yoga/Pilates/Tai-Chi class as many of the moves are very difficult and require a lot of balance.The Supreme Traction Mat features a rubber topside which delivers a slip-proof and firm surface and also has a thickness that helps protect his joints. The Supreme Traction Mat is not only easy on the joints, but also easy on the environment, as it combines non-Amazon harvested, natural rubber with planet-friendly, high-tech TPE foam. This makes the mat incredibly comfortable yet also provides a great grip. The mat is free of PVC and other harmful materials and the closed-cell construction creates a hygienic barrier to bacteria and resists water absorption as well. My husband absolutely adores the Supreme Traction Mat from MERRITHEW and has asked for a few more items as well as some Stocking Stuffers from MERRITHEW for Christmas. MERRITHEW has a GREAT Holiday Gift Guide that features tons of great items from MERRITHEW that any fitness instructor, participant or fitness lover would be proud to own.
