The Tyger Mat Advantage
With the Tyger Mat, you are able to easily adjust the resistance of every suspension exercise and anchored elastic band exercise.
Through the Science and Programming Course, you will learn when it is best to make those adjustments for those types of exercises, and many more...
With the Tyger Mat, you can set and measure the distance between your feet (or hands) to know how much instability is involved in the exercise.
Through the Science and Programming Course, you will be shown an efficient method of recording these distances for those exercises so each session is consistent.
With the Tyger Mat, you have a visual indicator of your progress in strength, endurance, and balance as you move up and down the mat.
Through the Science and Programming Course, you will be well-versed in the methodology to analyze the notes and recordings in your workout log to accurately determine your level of progress.
The Research: Tyger Mat & the Course
It is well-known that the amount of weight, resistance, or intensity used for any exercise strongly influences the number of reps, speed of the movement, and quality of that movement.
Based on multiple peer-reviewed studies, the most practical and efficient way to measure the resistance and difficulty of a suspension exercise and elastic band exercise is by measuring the distance between the user and where the straps or bands are hanging from.
The Tyger Mat's design provides you with the visual indicator that informs you of that exact distance and resistance that you experience and is consistent for every session.
The Science and Programming Course provides you with the science behind our measuring system and how to make efficient notes and recordings in your workout logs. With this system, you'll know the exact intensities you used in previous sessions, as well as have the evidence to determine how well you are progressing.
About Our New Course!
Switched from free weights to suspension training, and wanted a way to measure progress. I love the utility and portability of it; well worth the money.
It’s a fantastic mat, very good quality, good amount of grip and depth of foam, the lines are very helpful and take the guess work out of it and saves you a little time overall. I don’t TRX with out it. Also started using it for skipping, works a treat!
I really enjoyed the Tyger Mat course that I took recently. James was a great instructor who engaged the participants throughout the workshop. I really enjoyed the balance of the presentation and hands-on components of learning. The course was thoughtfully designed, active, engaging, and supported by science. I highly recommend this workshop to anyone looking to enhance their programming diversity - especially with suspension trainers and elastic bands.
With the Tyger mat I now have the precise measurement tool to develop a progressive exercise program that is recordable and accurate. I use this valuable mat with myself and one on one clients to ascertain the next progression the exercise. Great investment.

The Mastering Tyger Mat Science Course was very informative.
James was knowledgeable of the science behind the Tyger Mat. This course gave me a proper understanding of progression in a safe and practical manner.
We have owned our Tyger Mat for over a year now. It has received extensive use both with TRX and other types of workouts. It is extremely durable, easy to clean, and makes performing consistent measurable TRX workouts possible.
The customer service and after-the-sale follow-up by Tyger Mat is excellent as well. I highly recommend the product and the company.
One of the benefits of TRX is its portability and use-anywhere functionality . While the Tyger mat is not so portable, it creates a more effective TRX workout.
Unlike every other mat i have tried, the grip is excellent on both sides, mat to floor and feet to mat. This makes strong torsional moves such as high arm torso twists and steeper angles possible, which effectively increases the available useable bodyweight.
As others have said, the markings are useful, particularly when doing mulitiset workouts. Normally it takes a few reps of position adjustment to get the correct load on a move, but with indexed marks, one you know, you can remember the position for the next set, making workouts more effective.
I find i have to fold the mat to create sufficient cushioning for any kneeling move, such as kneeling rollouts, but that's no biggie.
My only minor gripe is the bag is not great and lasted a few trips, so expect to need a good bag if you are carrying it around.
Bought from France. The mat was home few days later, incredible. Shipping was faster than local post ! This mat is the best I have ever had. Really perfect for TRX, the lines allow you to see if you are progressing. It’s a game changer because without it, it's like picking up weights randomly. For me, every TRX practitioner should invest in this mat that will last over time. Really happy !
The Mastering Tyger Mat Science Course that was both an engaging and interactive experience. Overall, it increased my knowledge in performing the Tyger Mat workouts.
James was fantastic with providing individual feedback to a small group class. I learned how to assess the intensity of suspension exercises, practice with elastic bands, and use the Tyger Mat more effectively. You’ll be happy you tried this course!
I looked into getting a mat as I used my TRX on vinyl plank flooring, and my feet would tend to slide. I first used a yoga mat, which sort of worked but could have been much better. I found Tyger Mat and it it's been great!
First, it basically never shifts with my weight at all, even with my feet planted at an extreme angle. That alone was worth it. But, having the lines etched it has let me track my progression much better! It let's me track where I planted my feet before and do progressive overload much easier.
This is the best mat I’ve have ever used. Saved me during lockdown.
This has really taken my suspension training to new levels. No worry about slipping or the mat moving.
The markings on the mat allow you to really track your progress easily and they are etched into the mat so well that even with good usage they won’t wear or fade.
Can’t recommend highly enough.
Was recommended the mat by a TRX specialist. I had two challenges. Slipping mat and not sure how close my feet were to the anchor point. Tyler mat does both brilliantly...
I really like it
I have had several yoga mats, but I’m so glad I found the Tiger Mat during such a crazy 2020 year. With the gyms closed, I was forced to embrace my new exercise room “the garage”, which meant an average of several hours, 5+ days a week on my mat. That’s how I fell in love with the Tiger Mat. I can finally concentrate on perfect form from rep 1 to 20, no more wasting time adjusting sweating hands and feet. The small things in life that change everything ❤️❤️❤️
Awesome Mat for glossy surfaces, the numbering is a perfect tool for workouts
