    Gymnastics mats provide a cushioned area for young gymnasts to practice moves at home. But they also work for many other activities, making them a great value. Kids can use gymnastics mats for cheerleading, tumbling, or general playtime. Parents may choose to use a gymnastics mat for exercising on the floor, such as for yoga. Thickness ranks as the biggest differentiator among models of gymnastics mats. Thinner mats work well for simple exercises requiring a sturdier surface. Thicker gymnastics mats provide more padding for falls, but users will sink into the surface. Some gymnastics mat styles are paneled. Connected paneled mats can fold out to a large size for workouts. Then they fold up to a small size for storage.
