Jigsaw Mats

Why are Jigsaw Mats Better Than Regular Mats for your Home Gym?

A home gym is a great way to get back on track with your health and fitness. You don’t have to spend time commuting to your local gym and can exercise in the comfort and privacy of your home. Such gyms are particularly beneficial to people who’re self-conscious about exercising in public. However, it’s important to create a safe gym space before you start exercising. At Ezy Mats, we encourage customers to pay attention to the floor and use good quality gym equipment for their exercise. Jigsaw mats are a great way to make your gym floor safer.

Why are jigsaw mats better than regular mats? 

There are different kinds of mats available in the market so it’s not easy to make a choice for your home gym. Here are some reasons why you should choose jigsaw mats instead of regular mats:

  • Design – Jigsaw mats have a very attractive design, which makes them a good choice for home gyms. They have different colours on different sides in most cases, so you can install alternating colours for a different effect.
  • Easy installation – Jigsaw mats are very easy to install because you don’t need to use glue or follow any specific instructions. These mats are like puzzle pieces and lock into place once all the pieces are installed. You don’t need to apply glue to the floor and stick the mat in order to keep it in place because the interlocking design will do it for you.
  • Easy removal – It’s easy to remove the mat because it’s not adhered to the floor surface. So if you decide to move to a different location or stop using the home gym, you don’t need to refinish your original floors because there will be no glue stains or other such problems. You can just lift the puzzle pieces up without causing any damage to the pieces or the floor. They’re reusable so you can install them in a different location as well.
  • Comfort – These jigsaw mats provide ample support and comfort to you while you exercise. They absorb impact and offer a soft surface that doesn’t cause excessive strain to your muscles and bones. Exercising on a hard floor surface can be very difficult challenging and cause excessive injuries as well. Jigsaw mats will act as a barrier between your body and the hard floor.
  • Easy maintenance – It’s not difficult to maintain the mats. You just need mild soap water and clean the surface once in a while. Regular cleaning will improve the lifespan of the mat and ensure it doesn’t look bad. Regular cleaning will also ensure the floor is hygienic and doesn’t smell of sweat and dirt.

You don’t need to look elsewhere for excellent quality jigsaw mats. We at Ezy Mats have a large collection of them and you can get in touch with us at (02) 97187424 or contact us through this form if you want to know more.

Best Mats for Gymnastics Mats

We often get asked what kind of mats are the best mats for gymnastics. As gymnastics is a very popular sporting activity there is always a need for gymnastics mats in the general population. Gymnastics mats are important as they help minimise the impact of training. With gymnastics there is a lot of tumbling, jumping, somersaults etc which can resulting in the practitioner falling and impacting with the floor. Using anti-fatigue mats therefore is necessary for any training area.

There are a number of mats which can be helpful in such a situation. A great kind of mat for this kind of training is foam mats. Foam mats are made from compress expandable foam which has a stated hardness and density which gives it the ability to absorb impact. Usually the thicker the foam mats the better the absorptive qualities. For an activity like gymnastics it would probably be recommended to go with something thinker thick a 40mm foam mat. None the less any thickness for the foam mats would be better then no mats at all.

Puzzle mats are another name for these mats and seem to be what a lot of people know that as. Puzzle mats are also made from foam but they connect together in a puzzle formation which is where they get their recognition from. The puzzle format allows them to be connected together in a stable manner therefore forming a continuous mat. This added strength offer stability for the practitioner with the knowledge that they will not come apart during training. Puzzle mats are a great option for training gymnastics and should always be considered when choosing a mat.

 

Exchange rate vs USD

AUD Falls on Week Inflation Data

The Australian dollar fell today on week inflation data from the Bureau of Statistics. The rate of inflation was 0.2% instead of the 0.4% which was expected. The underlying rate was 0.5% which was in line with expectations. The announcement had an immediate effect which saw the dollar fall by 0.25%. It is currently hovering just above $0.79.

What does this all mean for the price of goods and jigsaw mats in particular. Firstly jigsaw mats are sourced in USD so any dramatic drop in the AUD will have an impact on their pricing. The dollar has risen dramatically in the recent past so it should not have an effect. We would only see and effect on jigsaw mats if the AUD fell below $0.74. Although anything is possible it is unlikely to drop so much in a short period of time. Only a huge economic shock would have an effect on the AUD like rising unemployment or some other such event.

The Australian economy has been performing great lately which is why the AUD has risen so much and the price of gym mats is so low. Whilst there is a feel good sentiment in the economy people are more likely to purchase discretionary items such as gym mats and other training equipment. This is usually the case in good economic times. As someone who is current involved in a few businesses I have had the feeling that the economy has improved markedly in the last few months. So much so that it has lead to increased hired in the organisations that I run. Including at Ezymats.

It is always a good idea to order your foam mats whilst the dollar is good. It ensures that you will be able to buy your foam mats at a good price therefore grabbing yourself a bargain. The price of foam mats was much higher when the dollar was pushing below $0.72. We have heaps of stock of foam mats at the time so it is a great time to order them. We also have shipment coming in all the time.

Jiu jitsu Mats Surge With Popularity of Training

There have been a huge surge in the demand for jiu jitsu mats in the recent past. This can be increasingly be attributed to the popularity of jiu-jitsu itself. The proliferation of jiu jitsu gyms has meant that jiu jitsu is fast overtaking karate as the most popular martial art, even though karate mats are also best sellers. Although all martial arts are still a popular choice of activity for both adults and kids. Jiu jitsu seems to be growing in leaps and bounds.

We get request for jiu-jitsu mats on a daily basis. Whether they are for personal use in the home of for professional gyms the calls come through all the time. The type of mats also vary. Whilst most people go for the interlocking floor mats as they are the most cost effective exercise mats that we have, people also go for the MMA mats and tatami mats. The professional gyms especially like to chose the heavy duty vinyl mats as they are a more long term and permanent solution for training mats.

To understand why interlocking foam mats and MMA mats are so popular it is important to understand the art. Japanese jiu jutsu (also known as jujutsu) is a system that typically emphasises throwing, pinning, and joint-locking techniques. While there is some striking techniques they are seen as less important because they were used as more as set-ups for their grappling techniques. It is this constant grappling and throwing that has made jiu jitsu mats (jujutsu mats) as popular as they are today.

Wall mats or wall padding is important for any martial arts or gymnastic activity.
