I'll start by saying for plyometrics this thing is a godsend. With just a bit of attention to how you're jumping it's so thick I feel very little impact most of the time.
For yoga floorwork it's amazing. I can spend 5 minutes balanced awkwardly on one knee and never have (the knee) get uncomfortable.
For any exercise that spreads you out and places pressure on the mat though it's subpar for 2 reasons.
1st: It has absolutely no texture and is VERY smooth. It's also waterproof. Even a tiny bit of perspiration on your palms (or dripping off your face) makes keeping your hands in place for some push-ups and poses almost impossible.
2nd: Even if you can get a grip, the foam will stretch and give rather a lot. I've noticed a slide of about 2" when doing things like downward dog. Definetly not ideal, and for yoga I'm almost certainly going to have to replace it.
The softness of it is also a bit of a problem sometimes with the memory of the foam. It likes to indent to (and then stick to) shoe soles sometimes. It can also make balance poses tricky when you realize suddenly the foam you're balanced on is about as smooth as a teenage concession worker's face.
As far as smell goes, it has a bit of a rubber odor but that disipated quickly. And within 48 hours of unrolling it it had become quite flat.
Overall: as a mat for floorwork like crucnches and jumping/impact exercises its actually fantastic. It's very comfortable and takes out a ton of impact. For things that require careful positioning and places any tension on the mat though it's miserable so don't expect to have this be perfect.
It is very comfortable and appears to be durable. My mat had an initial newly-manufactured smell, but it was slight and went away very quickly.
Again, the price is great and the overall quality is good.
The mat will start out rolled up and after a day or two will be flat if you just put something one each end. One side of the mat where the straps that wrap around it connect to the velcro will actually velcro itself into carpet pretty nicely to hold that end down. The other end will move around and stretch a lot though if you are jumping around side to side or doing downward dog type Yoga moves. I recommend putting a chair or weight on the other end to keep the mat stretched out and not moving around on the floor so much.
As others have noted, if you sweat (you will if you are doing P90X or Insanity!) the mat will get a bit slick since it doesn't soak up your sweat. Also, if you exercise barefoot like I tend to do, the mat will stick to your feet once you start sweating so I highly recommend wearing at least socks when doing heavy exercise using the mat.
Even with the downsides I listed above, the mat is very comfortable and thicker than many others you can buy to use with Yoga or P90X so I prefer lowering the impact and can deal with the few annoyances. I just ordered a second mat to make a larger area so I can do pushups and switch positions without having to move the mat in front of my screen. I highly recommend a foam mat of any sort though if you are planning on doing plyometrics at all, your knees and ankles will thank you!
I took away one star because it does get scratched up easily. There are a few small rips starting in the mat already. It is still usable but it only gets light usage from me and I don't wear shoes on it. I either do barefoot yoga or am doing abs laying down. But that is my only complaint.
I like that it has the straps to keep it closed when it is put away. And it is super comfortable! Much better than a regular yoga mat, especially when I am putting pressure on my knees. I just hope this lasts for a while. I will update if I have any more problems with it.
The only downside which isn't the products fault, are my cement floors. I'm constantly moving the pad back in place, very annoying. But I found "Ruggies" at BB&B and they grip and hold the mat in place. Usually meant for area rugs but I gave them a try and they work! I'm not fussing over the mat during my workout any more.
