Chum Mat (developed by Denise Assagai) is a round, padded yoga mat that is smaller than typical yoga mats, making it just as portable as any yoga mat on the market, but with the ability to be stowed away out of sight in a backpack, gym bag, or tote bag. This eliminates the need to carry it separately from other gym necessities. It is also reversible with a two-sided textured surface for ultimate comfort as determined by the user, and is made with closed-cell construction making it easy to clean without harboring germs.
With the smaller size (just 22 inches in diameter, 1/4 inch thick, and weighing in at a mere 8 oz.), it can be a better option for anyone who desires to pare down the bulk of the fitness bag they carry around without losing the ability to include a yoga mat in their routine. The 1/4 inch (5 mm) thickness, while thin enough to prevent the item from being bulky, is very-well cushioned. The mat has a very good grip factor, my hands and feet didn’t slip once while using it, even when they became sweaty.
The mat can be used by men, women and children with any kind of active lifestyle that may require yoga or stretching. The small size and light weight make this mat ideal for hikers or other outdoor enthusiasts who may need to stretch before physical exertion, as it can be used and then stowed in a backpack while active. I’m thinking it could also be used when taking a break from outdoor activity to sit down and take a 5-minute break or a snack for comfortable sitting even on uneven terrain. (Leave it to me to find a way to use an exercise device in a lazy way! LOL)
This item retails for $22 and the company offers free shipping within the U.S.
I am so happy to have had the opportunity to try out Chum Mat. It has worked very well for me and has become a permanent part of my workout accessory collection. If you own a Chum Mat, tell me your favorite feature about it. If you don’t, what activity do you think this item would be perfect for in your life?
