I saw the solid reviews, and went for it. I have no complaints. It's very thin but sturdy. I like that it looks professional. And there's no smell. I don't know if that's a thing or not, but a lot of other reviews seemed to note that as a problem with mats. This also seems to work better (zero slippage) than the yoga mat that was previously under my treadmill. I have a smaller treadmill and laminate wood floors below. Hope that helps.
