It’s winter, it’s cold, and you’re busy. I get it! We all struggle to find the time or even the motivation to exercise. But what if I told you that you could exercise and stretch your muscles right there in your home? Sounds too good to be true? Well not entirely! 

I’ve been testing the HoMedics STRETCH Back Stretching Mat over the past couple of days. I know what you’re thinking. How could a mat possible stretch out my body? I asked this same question until I plugged it in, lay it out and lay down. The mat was able to move my body through various sequences of yoga-like moves which included stretches and twists! The sensation it gave off was pleasant and with the push of a few buttons, I could change the settings to produce different motions. 

As you all know, I’m a gym girl but I love taking time off from my weight-lifting sessions to indulge in a more soothing activity. I didn’t expect the high level of relaxation I felt lying on the mat and it was such a pleasant surprise! My back felt thoroughly stretched afterwards!

Furthermore, its portable nature meant that after a session, I could fold it up and stash it away, ready for my next session. It would also make the perfect exercise equipment to travel with due to its highly portable nature but even more fitting for the season, it would make a really great Christmas present for a loved one or for yourself!

How would I describe it in a few words? I think the phrase, ‘yoga instructor in your home’, would be fitting! The mat’s settings were able to replicate various yoga moves all with the push of a button!

In all, I would recommend this product. Not only did it sooth and relax my muscles but moreover it was a perfect way to get my muscles moving when I didn’t have time to head over to the gym. For more information, view the video below:
