I purchased my Tyger Mat to improve my TRX workouts. It takes the guessing out of feet placements and means I now have a measurable way of viewing my progress. Expensive but well worth it.
Love my mat It helps me see my progress as to how far I can position me feet
without bein afraid that I'm goin to fall. AND it doesn't move, most important, when I do
my side lunges, or jumping..Perfect-a-mundo :)
Mat is good quality and aids in using our TRX suspension trainer. I like the large carrier bag as it is easy to store the mat.
I've used the TRX at the gym and at home and didn't realise how much foot slippage and fear of falling was holding me back. This mat is truly non slip and means you can complete your exercises with precision and confidence. I didn't think I would be bothered with the measurements on the mat but they are so helpful for checking foot position and noting progress. I am now using this mat with PT clients and I look so much more professional and love the confidence I can see it is giving clients too.
Customer service was fantastic, James answered all my queries and even gave advice on best places for TRX exercises and kept me in the loop re. delivery. Delivered quickly and in perfect condition. Once you've tried it you will wish you had bought it sooner. (I don't think I've ever written such a raving positive review lol)
Makes keeping track of TRX progressions a breeze. Could be wider and fractional lines for more precise exercise tracking would make it even better.
Awesome 😊 though Could be 50% wider
I use my Tyger Mat for everything. TRX, stretching, yoga... I've used it 3-4x per week for the last 6 months and it still looks like it is brand new. The numbering system is genius for progressive overloading suspension training. Whenever my mat breaks down, which I don't expect to be soon, I'll buy a replacement.
I bought this when I started a TRX training program. The mat with its numbering system really helps to track your progress and challenge yourself to make the workouts harder rather than just guessing where your feet were the previous workout.
It's also a great non-slip mat I use for other floor workouts and yoga. Awesome product!
The Tyger mat is very good for workouts, and its non-slip feature is especially good for TRX workouts when you have laminate floors.
The markings help you track your progress with TRX as you slowly move your feet towards the anchor point over time.
The only slight downside is the mat can darken if sweat lands on it. It dries quickly and without leaving a mark though.
I bought this mat on a whim - from a recommendation email via TRXTraveller - and boy for once I am happy that I got poor impulse control.
The way the mat 'sucks' to the floor in my garage is amazing - no more worry that I'll slip and slide and potentially end up in a heap on the floor.
Being a beginner with Trx and training from home on my own the one thing that really sticks out for me is the markings on the mat. It is so easy to replicate workouts with the same amount of effort. As well as easily increase or decrease intensity. Being able to keep a track of the width of your stance is also ace.
Being based in the UK I was expecting quite some delivery time but even here it exceeded expectations. The mat arrived very quickly and was packaged very securely. Speaking of packaging, getting the mat in its own little carrying bag makes it so much easier to stow away and even bring on excursions to the park, trips and so on.
I think you're getting the message here - get one! You will not regret it.
First class product that does everything that it says on the tin’. If you use a suspension trainer or do calisthenics this is a must to allow you to measure performance, track progress and ensure progressive overload.
The non-slip surface works really well, even on a carpeted floor. Lunges will slide the mat a bit, but I just reset after each set of those. Feet grip perfectly.
But the numbers? Brilliant!! No more do I have to try and guess where to place my feet, or remember that little stain on the floor as my starting point. Looking forward to years of use!
As a veteran TRX trainer its safe to say I love the straps! However, there was never a way to really measure progress. In comes the Tyger mat! Simple easy affordable way to help externally cue clients. Love this thing!
I love the Tyger mat, it has really helped improve my TRX workouts. Makes it easy to assess progress, something that is difficult to do with the TRX workouts otherwise. I'm pleased with the good quality of the mat, it was a lot thicker than I thought it was going to be and gives very good grip.
Well done for creating a very good product!
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.
