Folding mat

Our new home has all hardwood and tile flooring. I'd like to get a small folding mat of some kind that I could pull in from the garage so I can be a bit more comfortable for foam rolling, etc, while I watch my NFL Sunday Ticket. I'm thinking of something roughly 6x6 feet, fold into two parts for easy movement to the garage, and soft enough but not too cushy. Any thoughts?

Re: Folding mat

Here's the expensive option:

Going to your local sports store or Home Depot, they sell foam mat tiles for maybe $16-30. You'd have to tile it together, but it could easily fit in the back of a closet or your garage.

Re: Folding mat

Couldn't you throw down a small rug or carpet?

Re: Folding mat

Yikes! I was hoping for something in between a carpet and the cushy pads linked above (and way less expensive than those ones). Anyone know of anything?

Re: Folding mat

Just find a cheap throw rug off craigslist or local discount department store in the size you want. Should be plenty just to keep your bones off the hardwood. You don't want something too soft otherwise your foam roller will just bend at the ends while rolling. Need something semi-firm and flat for them to roll correctly.
