Review: The Running Mat
Yeah, I know I look cool, and so do all the people who passed me in the park on their way to work, as I ponced about having my photo taken in running kit and sun glasses at 8am.
In case you’ve not realised, the Running Mat is a mat that you can fold up and clip around your waist. You run to where you’re going, unclip it, unfold it, put it on the floor, and Bob’s yer uncle. No more wet, muddy hands/back/knees at Bootcamp.
Here’s how it works. See the shiny silvery part? It’s waterproof, so you don’t get wet.
For people who do bootcamp – or just exercise outside on a regular basis – this is a simple yet genius invention. If you drive to bootcamp, or you’re not as prissy about getting wet and muddy as I am, you might see it as less of an investment.
I love my Running Mat, and since I go to the park to work out with my sister every week, it’s become something that’s used as often as my trainers and the goofy look on my face.
The mat is £19.95 including delivery – so again, good if you’re going to use it regularly and appreciate its water/mud-proofing abilities; not so good if you don’t mind getting wet and muddy as part of your workout, or you only workout once a month.
