"I was trying to workout on a narrow thin yoga mat and it just wasn't working out" - Eric Landis

I was working out to P90X in my living room and instead of doing push ups, lunges, and jumping jacks directly on the carpet, like everyone, I rolled out a yoga mat.  That didn't last very long.  Quickly, I figured out that a yoga mat isn't going to work well for cardio training.  The narrow mat size limits the types of  workouts you can do (it seemed like I spent half the time trying to stay on the mat) and the material is thin. 

I have developed a large exercise mat and yoga mat that gives you both the “space” you need to workout and durable “material” that allows you to do any type of workout and is easily "portable". 

Pogamat and Pogomat can be used for plyometrics, yoga, pilates, cardio workouts, kettlebell workouts, bodyweight workouts, home workout dvd's, and all other types of fitness training.  You can take it to the beach, mountains, camping, picnic, and can be used as a kid's play area.  Works great with all age groups. Perfect for at home workouts and easily portable to class.  Liked by personal trainers, coaches, and athletes. Did I get it all?  

We have been getting great reviews locally in Denver, CO and expect the same as we grow.  Over the past few months I have put the mats in the hands of personal trainers, yoga instructors, gym owners, and a news sports anchor.  Pogomat has been used in yoga classes, at a local gyms, and at home.

If you like to workout or practice yoga or know anyone who does, please consider backing Pogamat, tell friends/family about it, and help me spread the word!
