The SilverSport SilverMat™ has been specifically engineered for hot yoga and Pilates workouts, and features the revolutionary new Terra Silver™ antimicrobial technology. As a result, the entire mat is a Silver Clean Zone™, providing an extra layer of protection against odor-causing bacteria during workouts.
We have tile flooring in our house, and working out on it without a mat is painful! I had never owned my own workout mat prior to receiving the SilverMat for review(I needed one I’m just too indecisive), and whenever I’d take a workout class I usually used the ones they provide (which don’t always smell wonderful).
When I read about how the SilverSport products are designed to keep germs away, I was absolutely intrigued.
What is Terra Silver?
Terra Silver is a revolutionary new technology that utilizes Nature’s Defense Against Bacteria™: silver, a natural antimicrobial agent. The nanosilver particles incorporated into all SilverSport products are highly effective at reducing bacteria and providing superior odor protection.
How does it work?
Activated by moisture (such as sweat, water, etc.), silver ions are released and immediately start to eliminate odor-causing bacteria. The resulting Silver Clean Zone helps protect the user from unseen germs, effectively managing “hot spots” of bacteria. Antimicrobial silver helps to keep your workouts cleaner than ever!
My experience with the SilverMat so far has been excellent. Both my husband and I have been using it for quite a few weeks now and it’s stayed odor-free so far! We just wipe it lightly with a damp towel after using it and then put it away.
Aside from the antimicrobial properties of the SilverMat (which are quite unique), it’s also thick and comfortable. In my opinion, a thick workout mat is ideal especially if you’re doing a medium to high-impact workout. Also, I didn’t have any issues with it slipping, it stayed in-place nicely.
Overall I am really happy with the SilverMat, and although they’re a bit pricey ($49.99), this is a situation where quality matters! You don’t want to injure yourself while working out, and a quality workout mat can definitely help to avoid that.
