Does your cell phone have a case on it? Of course, it does! Anyone with a smart device typically will want to protect it using a case. Users want to keep their investment safe and secure. The same goes for anything we invest our money into. This also applies to how we take care of ourselves. Therefore, when you use a balance pad to improve your strength and control, you need an exercise mat to go with it.
Airex ® Balance Pad
The Airex® Balance Pad is a foam stability exercise trainer that’s terrific for balance, stretching, physical therapy, mobility, rehabilitation, and core strength training. Lightweight, comfortable, and non-slip, these mats are a must have for any workout. Perfect for use between trainer / coach and athlete as well as for individual use in Yoga or Pilates. Made from easy-to-clean, closed-cell foam with an “integrally molded skin” for extra toughness. These Boards are soft, supple, and cushiony. They gently absorb shock to prevent injuries and the textured surface areas prevent slipping and sliding. They’re also great around the house in the garden, garage, kitchen, bathroom, or basement. Anywhere that cushioning is needed. Rinsing after use with fresh water is all that’s needed. Users then just shake off the excess water and allow to air dry. The boards are Latex-free. The mats are waterproof, meaning they float, making them ideal for water therapy and other water-based exercises. These mats are durable to the Nth degree as the transverse ribbing pattern is molded into the mat to resist rips and holes. These Boards are safe in unexpected ways. The ends will remain flat and not curl over time, preventing tripping. The mats are also environmentally friendly as their recyclable materials meet CPSIA, REACH, and CA65 standards. They’re also the perfect size and add an extra layer of comfort when placed on your seat at work or when you let your feet rest on them under your desk. Please note, after cleaning, to preserve the integrity of the mats damp products should never be stored in lockers or stacked in confined spaces.
Airex® Closed Cell Exercise Mats
Airex® mats are lightweight, comfortable and do not slide on the floor. They are made from closed-cell foam with an “integrally molded skin” for extra toughness. Transverse ribbing pattern is molded into the mat to resist tearing and to give the mat enough flexibility to be “rolled-up” for carrying and storage. Available either individually boxed or in case packaging. Ideal for individual workouts and yet tough enough for use in fitness centers and therapy clinics.
